Mr Donald Wade: May I ask the right hon. Gentleman whether he will issue a leaflet indicating which of the 150 Amendments to the Bill he intends to accept?
Mr Donald Wade: Will the Leader of the House say how many days will be devoted to the Committee stage of the Resale Prices Bill? Can he give a firm assurance that there will be no use of the Guillotine?
Mr Donald Wade: asked the Minister of Labour, what has been the outcome of the discussions between his Department and the staff of the National Economic Development Council on the subject of implementing the recommendation of the Council regarding the transferability of pension rights.
Mr Donald Wade: When is there to be a debate on the White Paper on Monopolies, Mergers and Restrictive Practices? Is it intended that it should be debated at the same time as the Second Reading of the Resale Prices Bill on Tuesday? If so, surely a one-day debate will not be adequate.
Mr Donald Wade: Might I join in paying tribute to the British Forces in the island, and at the same time welcome the unanimity of the Security Council resolution? In order to remove misunderstandings, is the hon. Gentleman in a position to indicate the views of Her Majesty's Government on whether the decision of the Security Council affects, directly or indirectly, the London and Zurich Agreements...
Mr Donald Wade: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the grandfather of my hon. Friend the Member for Orpington (Mr. Lubbock) first introduced Bank Holidays in 1871 and also endeavoured to introduce a further Bank Holiday at the beginning of this century? Have there been any discussions with a view to having an autumn or Michaelmas Bank Holiday, which would help to break the period between August and...
Mr Donald Wade: In the meantime, is it the Government's intention to make any statement on altering the dates of Bank Holidays?
Mr Donald Wade: While fully sharing the desire that Zanzibar should remain in the Commonwealth, may I ask whether there is not a very serious risk of getting the worst of both worlds by delay in recognition, since we lose the diplomatic link while, at the same time, playing into the hands of those who wish to create anti-British feeling in the island?
Mr Donald Wade: If it is not practicable for householders to opt out of this scheme for unaddressed mail, what instructions will be given to postmen where a householder has placed a "No Circulars" notice on his gate or door?
Mr Donald Wade: Do I understand that in the case of countries where there is no double taxation agreement in existence the new agreement with the Ghana Government will not apply?
Mr Donald Wade: if the log book has been forged, and the buyer buys in good faith and then finds that the car is owned by a finance house, will he have any remedy? I am aware that he will have rights against the vendor, and it may well be that the vendor will have committed a criminal offence, but generally in these circumstances vendors disappear. Will the buyer have any remedy under the Bill?
Mr Donald Wade: Will the Leader of the House say whether the promised White Paper on monopolies will be published before the Bill, at the same time, or after it?
Mr Donald Wade: I also heartily welcome the statement. Will tax that has been suffered be reimbursed? Alternatively, will there be some kind of rearrangement, which, at the end of the tax year, will have the effect of restoring the balance?
Mr Donald Wade: Do the figures which the right hon. and learned Gentleman has given provide for the necessary increase in post-graduates intending to enter the teaching profession to ensure that there are sufficient graduate teachers to meet our educational needs?
Mr Donald Wade: asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what is the total number of demands for Schedule A Income Tax that have been sent out for the current year.
Mr Donald Wade: Is the hon. Gentleman aware that considerable confusion and concern have been caused by the receipt of demands for Schedule A, even though in some cases they have been accompanied by an explanatory memorandum? In the hope of clearing up this confusion, may I ask two simple questions? First, is it true that in the current tax year the owner-occupier of freehold premises no part of which is let...
Mr Donald Wade: A case can be made out against having any new household service at all, but it is more difficult to justify the Opposition's Motion which, in effect, proposes that the new delivery service should proceed but that the dissemina- tion of political propaganda and other highly contentious matter should be excluded. I do not look at this problem with a prejudice in favour of the increased...
Mr Donald Wade: That is a very interesting conundrum, but I shall not try to answer it now. More important is the effect of this delivery service on first- and second-class mail. The Postmaster-General last week gave me an assurance that has been repeated today. We all know that Christmas time is an exception. A great effort is made to get Christmas cards out before Christmas Day, and my impression is...
Mr Donald Wade: Looking at this from the point of view of the general public, as we must, will the Postmaster-General give an assurance that the ordinary mail services will not be delayed by the introduction of this door-to-door service? If, for example, there is a flood of literature from a large organisation, what effect would this have on the ordinary mail?
Mr Donald Wade: Is the Prime Minister aware that certain Ghana pensioners are faced with a very real hardship and that, if the British Government are able and willing to do anything about it, the sooner an answer is known the better?
