Orders of the Day — British Subjects (Illness Abroad) (21 Jan 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: In raising the problem of British subjects taken ill abroad, I should like to say at the outset that I am well aware of the value of our consular services. There are many occasions on which the British consul is of great value to British subjects when they find themselves in difficulties, and with the increase in the number of people going abroad for their holidays, this may create a growing...

Orders of the Day — British Subjects (Illness Abroad) (21 Jan 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: A guarantee was given by the Fellowship. A medical team was flown out, and, in December last, Mr. Howe was brought back to England. The third case is that of a Mr. Turner, a business executive in his late twenties. He contracted polio in Singapore. He was out there with his wife. Like Mr. Howe, he had a widowed mother in this country. I need not go into all the details. A friend heard of the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Nightdresses (Non-flammable Materials) (16 Jan 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that I welcome his announcement? As a temporary measure, would it be practicable to make it compulsory for some kind of warning notice to be attached to material of this kind to make it quite clear that it is inflammable?

Oral Answers to Questions — Housing: Housing Associations (Land) (14 Jan 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs what steps he is caking to facilitate the acquisition of land by housing societies and self-build housing associations.

Oral Answers to Questions — Housing: Housing Associations (Land) (14 Jan 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: How is the Minister going to avoid competition between authorities, private developers and housing associations, where there is a shortage of land, and housing associations have some difficulty in finding land?

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: National Economic Development Council (14 Jan 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will bring the National Incomes Commission under the National Economic Development Council in order to ensure that recommendations about increases in incomes in particular industries form part of a broader national incomes policy which has the support of leaders of the trade unions and industry.

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: National Economic Development Council (14 Jan 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: Does not the hon. Gentleman agree that an effective incomes policy requires the co-operation of the trade unions and the employers and that the N.E.D.C. is a body where employers and trade union representatives are meeting to discuss, among other things, an incomes policy? Is it not, therefore, essential that the N.I.C. should be more closely associated with the N.E.D.C? If not, what is the...

Orders of the Day — Rating (Interim Relief) Bill (18 Dec 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: For the last 14 years, I have been taking part in debate on local authority rates. It is not a very thrill- ing subject, even though the hon. Member for Southend, West (Mr. Channon) has found it an opportunity for quoting Edmund Burke. Although the subject is not very thrilling, however, it affects a great many people. To the elderly person living on a small income, perhaps with a few...

Oral Answers to Questions — Technical Co-Operation: Ghana (Tax on Pensions) (17 Dec 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: Has the right hon. Gentleman satisfied himself that in the application of this tax no account is taken of allowances which would apply to a tax at the rate of 7s. in the £ in this country, and that therefore this is a straight tax of 7s. on a pension income, however small the pension may be, which is very unfair? Are we not under an obligation to colonial servants to ensure that they do not...

Bills Presented: Federation of Rhodesia and Nyasaland (Dissolution) (17 Dec 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: In view of the last remarks of the right hon. Gentleman, about aid, would not it be simpler to say that the British Government will accept responsibility for the Federal debt in view of the fact that the British Government were responsible for setting up the Federation?

Oral Answers to Questions — Roads: Road Traffic Regulations (4 Dec 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: asked the Minister of Transport whether he will take steps to ensure that the road traffic regulations are so framed that they put less burden on the time of the police force and can be administered efficiently without straining the relationship between the police and the motorist.

Oral Answers to Questions — Roads: Road Traffic Regulations (4 Dec 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: Is the Minister aware of the case of the lady who was arrested for not sending her driving licence to the court and the case of the man who was imprisoned for three days and nights because his road fund licence was out of date? Would he agree that this type of case tends to exacerbate the feeling of motorists and thereby makes the task of the police more difficult? What does he suggest should...

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Security (3 Dec 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: asked the Prime Minister what consideration he has given to the amalgamation of the Ministry of Pensions and National Insurance with the National Assistance Board to form a single Ministry of Social Security.

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Security (3 Dec 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: I am not sure whether that means "Yes" or "No". Is the Prime Minister aware that there are still many people who are reluctant to go to the National Assistance Board, though that is no criticism of the staff of the Board? In any case, is it not high time that we had some radical reform of our social security system, and might not this be coupled with the creation of a single Ministry of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Economic Development (Regional Plans) (3 Dec 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: asked the Prime Minister which Minister is responsible for relating regional plans to the National Economic Development Council's overall plan for the country.

Oral Answers to Questions — Economic Development (Regional Plans) (3 Dec 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: Is it not the fact that the N.E.D.C. is to set up regional industrial committees? What is to be the link between these committees and the regional planning of the Secretary of State for Industry, Trade and Regional Development? Would it not simplify matters if the Minister responsible for regional development were chairman of the N.E.D.C? In any case, who is responsible for regional targets...

Oral Answers to Questions — Economic Development (Regional Plans) (3 Dec 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: But who co-ordinates all this?

Orders of the Day — Housing Bill (28 Nov 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: I gather that the hon. Member for Aldershot (Sir E. Errington) is not very enthusiastic about housing associations, but I will refer to that later. I agree with other hon. Members who have spoken that this Bill should receive a Second Reading. But I think it fair to point out that a number of hardships might have been avoided had its provisions been introduced earlier. There are a number of...

Orders of the Day — Housing Bill (28 Nov 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: There is a difference between the nationalisation of land and the taxation of land values, but I do not want to be drawn into discussing that at the moment. The shortage of land is a matter of real importance as is the competition for land. There has been a tendency for speculators, for example, to grab as much land as possible and hold on to it for as long as possible. The increase in the...

Orders of the Day — Housing Bill (28 Nov 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: That is the view which I took, that a purchase may be made by a housing society assisted by the Housing Corporation, or in some circum- stances it may be made by the Corporation. It may be that there is new machinery to which the Minister has referred but has not yet explained. I want to know whether there is a risk of competition between the private developer, the local authority and the...
