Questions to Ministers (8 Apr 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: To ask the Minister of Transport whether he will seek to arrange a meeting of representatives from this country and the United States of America concerned with the encouragement of trade between Great Britain and the United States of America to discuss the adverse effects on such trade which may be caused by the demand by the Federal Maritime Commission that dual freight rates negotiated by...

Questions to Ministers (8 Apr 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: To ask the Minister of Transport what representations Her Majesty's Government has made, or proposes to make to the Government of the United States of America on the subject of the adverse effects on British shipping and British export trade which may be caused by the demand by the Federal Maritime Commission that dual freight rates negotiated by British shippers should be abolished.

Orders of the Day — Resale Prices Bill: Clause 1. — (Avoidance of Conditions for Maintaining Resale Prices.) (24 Mar 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: I agree with the hon. Member for Ormskirk (Sir D. Glover) that there is a great future for the independent retailer. Probably it is the independent retailer selling high quality goods in the high street and endeavouring to keep a fairly wide range of goods in stock who will, with or without r.p.m., have the difficult time in years ahead. I have been present throughout the whole debate. As I...

Orders of the Day — Resale Prices Bill: Clause 1. — (Avoidance of Conditions for Maintaining Resale Prices.) (24 Mar 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: That is the point I was endeavouring to make. I am not satisfied that the social problems—for instance, the question of the Health Service—will be solved by a reference to the Court. How exactly will Clause 5 be construed in the case of the chemist, for example? There are three gateways. There is the question of the quality of the goods being substantially reduced. I do not know whether...

Oral Answers to Questions — United Nations (Peace-Keeping Operations) (23 Mar 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: When did the United Nations Headquarters Staff Committee last meet?

Resale Prices Bill: Clause1. — (Avoidance of Conditions for Maintaining Resale Prices.) (23 Mar 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: It is all very confusing. The hon. Member for Shipley (Mr. Hirst) referred to this Amendment as being a dent in the iron curtain. Somehow, I do not think that "iron curtain" is quite the right metaphor to use when referring to the Bill. I should have thought that "maze" would have been a more suitable word to use, though I grant that the use of this word would require the hon. Gentleman to...

Resale Prices Bill: Clause1. — (Avoidance of Conditions for Maintaining Resale Prices.) (23 Mar 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: The hon. Gentleman was referring to the Secretary of State as the iron curtain, so this is a dent in the right hon. Gentleman. It makes it all the more confusing. The procedure is becoming increasingly complicated, but I hope that we shall be told in reply what is the net effect of the Amendment, As I understand it, it will not alter the onus of proof. The onus of proof will still rest on...

Resale Prices Bill: Clause1. — (Avoidance of Conditions for Maintaining Resale Prices.) (23 Mar 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: I am sorry—I meant on the supplier.

Resale Prices Bill: Clause1. — (Avoidance of Conditions for Maintaining Resale Prices.) (23 Mar 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: As I understand, the suppliers will give notice that they wish to claim exemption, and then the Registrar will draw up the list. The Board of Trade will then decide the order in which the items on the list will go before the Court. Who will classify the goods? Presumably, the Registrar will classify the goods, but it is not clear whether the Board of Trade, in deciding the order in which they...

Resale Prices Bill: Clause1. — (Avoidance of Conditions for Maintaining Resale Prices.) (23 Mar 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: This is a serious point. If we have reached the stage when the Board of Trade has decided that a particular class of goods should be taken to the Court, but the Registrar has, for some reason or other, decided not to submit any evidence, what happens then? Presumably, the case will still have to be put to the Court. Surely, this must be so. The Court will have to be satisfied that one of the...

Local Government Expendi Ture (Rating System) (20 Mar 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: I am very glad that the hon. Member for Southampton, Itchen (Dr. King) has had the opportunity to raise this important subject of rates. If the present system of raising rates continues unaltered, the future prospects for ratepayers are not at all cheerful. The analysis of the Rating and Valuation Association of the first 238 returns from local auhorities shows that ratepayers in England and...

Local Government Expendi Ture (Rating System) (20 Mar 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: I am not for one moment suggesting that it is in addition to the burden already borne. I quote the actual words used—" a sombre warning".

Local Government Expendi Ture (Rating System) (20 Mar 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: I think hon. Members will agree that all the evidence tends to show that the burden will grow. I believe that anomalies and hardships will continue, unless there is some fundamental change. Throughout the post-war period, we have been going round and round in circles. Attempts have been made to get back to some simple and consistent principle for assessing liability for rates, but there has...

Local Government Expendi Ture (Rating System) (20 Mar 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: I was speaking about a report I have been handed of the procedure being adopted by Orpington U.D.C.'s finance committee. That committee has drawn up a scheme to provide as fair a method as possible of administering relief under the Rating (Interim Relief) Act. The scheme is worthy of study. I say this because, taking the country as a whole, I do not believe that that Act will be particularly...

Local Government Expendi Ture (Rating System) (20 Mar 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: I will come to that. I am aware of the criticism. I hope I am wrong, but I suspect that the Government are still opposed to the idea of site value rating. Although the Simes Report of 1952 expressed opposition to it, there was a powerful minority in favour of it. One of the reasons for objecting to site value rating at that time was the existence of the development charge, which has gone....

Local Government Expendi Ture (Rating System) (20 Mar 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: I am making my own calculations for the country as a whole. I have already quoted what the Whitstable figure would be——

Local Government Expendi Ture (Rating System) (20 Mar 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: I am, of course, speaking of averages. As I have said, there might be a house on an extremely valuable site and the rate might go up.

Local Government Expendi Ture (Rating System) (20 Mar 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: I have already mentioned the case of an office block on a valuable site, vacant, and paying no rates at all. That is one example. Some modification of the definition by which the surveyors were bound might give a different result. The site value of playing fields and open spaces might be regarded as only nominal until they were available for development. Even if that was not so, we must...

Local Government Expendi Ture (Rating System) (20 Mar 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: That site value would be so low that it would not make a material difference to the overall position. It would simply be a question of whether it was worth the cost. The other advantage of site value rating lies in recouping development values for the community, which would be of great importance. It cannot be emphasised too strongly that, of all the suggestions for recouping development...

Local Government Expendi Ture (Rating System) (20 Mar 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: Whitstable is a fairly typical place to choose for a survey. I do not want to continue at length, but if the hon. Lady studies the report I think she will find the answer there.
