Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: New Clause No. 1. — (Preservation of Pension Rights.) (30 Jun 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: I think that I have already made it clear that, had I been free to devise the kind of Clause I should like, the Clause on the Notice Paper would have been worded somewhat differently from the one we have been discussing. For that reason I do not propose to press this Motion to a Division. I am a little disappointed that the right hon. Gentleman has not been able to give us any clear...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: New Clause. — (Savings (Pay as You Earn).) (30 Jun 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: I listened with interest to the hon. Member for Nottingham, South (Mr. W. Clark). He says that he has been advocating this since 1955. I am sorry that he has met with so little success. This proposal differs in a number of respects from a proposal entitled "Own-as-you-earn" which I have been advocating for many years, and which has been debated in this House from time to time. I understand...

Oral Answers to Questions — Developing Countries (Commonwealth Preference) (25 Jun 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: asked the Prime Minister whether he will have proposals drawn up for submission to the Commonwealth Conference for setting up a Commonwealth study group which will recast the system of Commonwealth preference so that preferences are granted by developed Commonwealth countries to all developing countries, in accordance with the proposal put forward at the United Nations Trade and Development...

Oral Answers to Questions — Developing Countries (Commonwealth Preference) (25 Jun 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: Can the Prime Minister be rather more precise? Does he agree that, to bridge the gap between the rich and poor nations of the world and to eliminate poverty, new world trading arrangements and new regional preferences are needed? Would he agree that the rĂ´le of the Commonwealth in the new circumstances of today should be to give the lead in bringing about these new arrangements rather than...

Business of the House (18 Jun 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: May I ask, once again, when there will be a debate on the White Paper on Monopolies and Mergers and Restrictive Practices?

Oral Answers to Questions — South Arabian Federation: Constitution (Talks) (16 Jun 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: Would the right hon. Gentleman agree that in the development of Southern Arabia it is most important that Her Majesty's Government should avoid the errors which were committed at the time of the setting up of the Central African Federation when a large and important body of opinion was ignored? It is true that there are many different points of view, but is the right hon. Gentleman satisfied...

United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (16 Jun 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: While welcoming the decisions reached at the conference, including the setting up of the proposed standing organisation, may I ask the right hon. Gentleman whether Her Majesty's Government will follow this up with discussions at the Commonwealth Conference with a view to achieving a common policy on trade and aid to the developing countries? On the subject of preferences, would Her Majesty's...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: New Clause. — (Extension of Relief Under Section 9 of Finance Act 1956.) (10 Jun 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: I want to refer to the two new Clauses, Nos. 26 and 28, which you have indicated, Mr. Chairman, may be discussed with the Clause the Second Reading of which has been moved. Both the new Clauses to which I am referring relate to the taxation of building societies. This is a subject in which the Economic Secretary may have some interest There is not much new to say about the first of the...

Business of the House (4 Jun 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: May I ask the Leader of the House when there is to be a debate on the White Paper on Monopolies, Mergers, and Restrictive Practices?

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 4. — (Tobacco.) (2 Jun 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: The effect of this Clause is to increase the Tobacco Duty as from 15th April. I propose to approach the subject from a slightly different angle than that of the hon. Member for Ebbw Vale (Mr. M. Foot). I think that many people have accepted this increase philosophically, but among the elderly there is some sense of grievance and I think it only right that it should be aired. I do not...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 11. — (Exemption from Excise Duty of Vehicles Modified for Invalids.) (2 Jun 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: I beg to move Amendment No.48, in page 12, line 10, after "vehicle", to insert: and whether or not the disabled person would have qualified for a grant at the time when the controls were fitted". This may seem to be a comparatively narrow point. On the other hand, it may be an important one. I welcome the relief that is to be granted to disabled persons under Clause 11, and I am anxious that...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 11. — (Exemption from Excise Duty of Vehicles Modified for Invalids.) (2 Jun 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: In view of the hon. Gentleman's assurance, I beg to ask leave to withdraw the Amendment.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 11. — (Exemption from Excise Duty of Vehicles Modified for Invalids.) (2 Jun 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: The Amendment takes to a logical conclusion a point which I made during the discussion on an earlier Amendment. In effect, relief would be granted to a disabled person and under the proposals in the Amendment moved by my hon. Friend the Member for Orpington (Mr. Lubbock) the test would be the provisions in the yellow badge scheme and that would be a fair test. The conditions which would have...

Orders of the Day — Resale Prices Bill: New Clause. — (Application to Restrictive Practices Court in Consequence of Proceedings Under Restrictive Trade Practices Act 1955.) (12 May 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: Most of my remarks will be in the form of comments on the observations which have already been made. I am, however, not completely clear about the timetable and I am in favour of any Amendments to the Bill which will simplify and speed up the procedure which it lays down. This procedure may be lengthy and complicated and it is sensible that we should try to shorten it, particularly for...

Orders of the Day — Resale Prices Bill: Clause 1. — (Avoidance of Conditions for Maintaining Resale Prices.) (12 May 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: I would not wish to be bound to the actual wording of the Amendment, but it raises an important issue. There may be a substantial loophole, and we have to be realistic and appreciate that efforts will be made to find loopholes in the Bill. We have had that experience with collective price agreements. One of the reasons why so many agreements were withdrawn was because ways of getting round...

Orders of the Day — Resale Prices Bill: Clause 1. — (Avoidance of Conditions for Maintaining Resale Prices.) (12 May 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: I cannot entirely accept that. There is a price list, but the extent to which there are variations is curious. Frankly, I do not have a great deal of time to go round different garages when I sell a used car. There are customs about the return of unsold newspapers. These customs may have varied over the years. There may be a difference in this respect between newspapers and journals. It is a...

Finance Bill (7 May 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: These are Exchequer payments to the trustee savings banks for managing Government stocks. As the hon. Member is aware, the range of permissible trustee investments has been greatly extended in recent years and may include equities. Are the trustee savings banks still limited to Government stocks and, if this is so, are the Exchequer payments made to trustee savings banks for managing...

Oral Answers to Questions — Hospitals: New Hospital, Lindley (4 May 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: asked the Minister of Health whether the promised review of the possibility of using parts of the new hospital at Lindley, Huddersfield, before the whole building has been completed, has now been carried out; whether this review has included consideration of the use of the hospital for the treatment of patients and not only for ancillary purposes such as a laundry; and whether, in making this...

Oral Answers to Questions — Hospitals: New Hospital, Lindley (4 May 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: Is the hon. Gentleman aware that for years Huddersfield has been suffering from a very serious shortage of surgical and medical beds and that the overcrowding at the Royal Infirmary has been acute for a long time? I will send him a letter which I have just received from a number of patients at the Royal Infirmary pointing out how serious the overcrowding is. As regards the partial use of the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Industry, Trade and Regional Development: Company Names (Registration) (30 Apr 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: asked the Secretary of State for Industry, Trade and Regional Development (1) what reply he has given to representations from the secretary of the Huddersfield Chamber of Commerce with regard to the approval by the Registrar of Companies of the use of the name Huddersfield in the title of a company whose registered office is not in Huddersfield and which has no existing connection with...
