Orders of the Day — Peerage Bill: Clause 1. — (Disclaimer of Certain Hereditary Peerages.) (27 Jun 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: I beg to move, in page 1, line 11, to leave out "for his life".

Orders of the Day — Peerage Bill: Clause 1. — (Disclaimer of Certain Hereditary Peerages.) (27 Jun 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: Two of the Amendments which you have named, Sir William, in page 3, line 33, after "wife" add "and his heirs" and in line 37, after "him", add "and his heirs" are consequential and I will discuss these three Amendments together. As you have indicated, there are other Amendments on the Notice Paper which may also be considered in the debate. The effect of the Amendment which I am moving is to...

Orders of the Day — Peerage Bill: Clause 1. — (Disclaimer of Certain Hereditary Peerages.) (27 Jun 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: If the hon. Gentleman will be patient and listen, he will understand that I am advocating precisely the opposite. I am trying to be fair and I am saying that I recognise that there are some who take the view that it is a responsibility, not a privilege. However, those who take this view are not justified in opposing the Amendment. Anyone who takes the view that an heir to a peerage has a...

Orders of the Day — Peerage Bill: Clause 1. — (Disclaimer of Certain Hereditary Peerages.) (27 Jun 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: No, it does not apply to peers of first creation, but it could happen in the future. The points I have made so far lead me to a proposition which has an important bearing on the Amendment. It is certainly something which has carried great weight with me in coming to a conclusion. When an individual accepts a hereditary peerage—I am not talking about a life peerage—he acts for himself and...

Orders of the Day — Peerage Bill: Clause 1. — (Disclaimer of Certain Hereditary Peerages.) (27 Jun 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: At the outset of my argument I said that the Amendment ought to be considered together with certain Amendments to Clause 3. If they are read together they will have the effect—at least it is intended that they shall—of disclaiming for all time. I do not think that they will have the effect which the hon. Member has just mentioned.

Orders of the Day — Peerage Bill: Clause 1. — (Disclaimer of Certain Hereditary Peerages.) (27 Jun 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: I am sorry to interrupt the hon. Member for Oldham, West (Mr. Hale). But would he enlighten me? Would he be good enough to say how the Amendment of which he approves differs from the Amendment which I moved and of which he disapproves?

Orders of the Day — Peerage Bill: Clause 1. — (Disclaimer of Certain Hereditary Peerages.) (27 Jun 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: Would the right hon. Gentleman allow me? I think that it was quite a fair intervention, because at the outset of my speech I said that I was putting a personal point of view, and I think that my hon. Friend said that he hoped for a free vote.

Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Navy: Widows' Pensions (26 Jun 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: asked the Civil Lord of the Admiralty how much pension is now received for herself and one child by the widow of a commander who retired after maximum service on the 1956 Code and died on 3rd November, 1958; and how much would she receive for herself and her child if he had died the next day, assuming in both cases that she is 50 years of age.

Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Navy: Widows' Pensions (26 Jun 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: This is a similar point to one raised earlier this afternoon with the Minister of Defence. Is it not quite unfair that the widow who by misfortune lost her husband one day before 4th November, 1958, should receive little more than half as much as she would receive if he had died the next day? Surely this is illogical. Is it not high time that the Government ended this discrimination against...

Oral Answers to Questions — N.a.T.O. Mixed-Manned Force (25 Jun 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: What is meant by the word "decision"? Does the right hon. Gentleman mean a decision by the Government as to the policy they are to pursue, or agreement with the other countries concerned?

Orders of the Day — Television Bill (24 Jun 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: Do I understand that the publisher referred to in the Clause will operate in competition with any existing journals or magazines?

Orders of the Day — Peerage Bill (19 Jun 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: Is not the hon. Gentleman, in effect, suggesting the creation of a new form of privilege? The heir to a peerage, or at the moment when the Bill comes into force an existing peer other than life peer or a peer of first creation, would be able to say to his brother or his son, "I will stand for the House of Commons, and you can take my place in the other place." Surely that would be rather...

Southern and Northern Rhodesia (Conference) (18 Jun 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: Are we to understand that the conference at Victoria Falls will be limited to representatives of Governments only? Where great constitutional issues such as this are involved, is it not most important that as wide a body of opinion as possible should be consulted, and that we should try to avoid the errors committed at the first Victoria Falls conference? What steps will be taken to ascertain...

Orders of the Day — REMUNERATION OF TEACHERS (Re-committed) BILL: Clause 1. — (Powers to Make Orders as to Remuneration.) (18 Jun 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: Before we hear the reply to this discussion, I should like to add such weight as I can to the case which has been made for the Amendment. I have spoken on other occasions about delegated legislation and I do not propose to deploy all the arguments again. There are, however, three points to be mentioned. First, a principle is involved. It is important that Parliament should have a watchful...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: New Clause. — (Extension of Relief Under S. 9 of Finance Act 1956.) (29 May 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: Personally, I am not expecting a "brush-off" although it would not be the first time we have had it. I do not think one should be quite so pessimistic. You have indicated, Sir Robert, that we may discuss in this debate the Liberal new Clause "Exemption of building societies from income tax and profits tax". The object of that Clause is to relieve building societies from liability to Income...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: New Clause. — (Extension of Relief Under S. 9 of Finance Act 1956.) (29 May 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: Housing association is the name used in the Bill, but in the White Paper there is a reference to housing societies, and I am quoting from the White Paper. It continues: Discussions have taken place with representatives of the Association and they have agreed to recommend that societies should co-operate in the following scheme. Proposals then follow about setting up housing corporations, and...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: New Clause. — (Extension of Relief Under S. 9 of Finance Act 1956.) (29 May 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: I will not argue whether the Government are being coy. I only draw attention to the fact that the word "co-ownership" is used. I understand the sense in which it is being used, and I have advocated this proposal in past years. But it would be out of order for me to dwell at length on the White Paper. I merely say that there is a certain amount of pie in the sky in it, and vague hope, but the...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: New Clause. — (Extension of Relief Under S. 9 of Finance Act 1956.) (29 May 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: What is the significance in the statement that has been made on one or two occasions by Government spokesmen to the effect that there will be no Profits Tax or Income Tax on housing associations? What is the difference between that, if there is an operating surplus by a housing association, and a building society?

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: New Clause. — (Relief from Duty on Heavy Oils Used as Fuel for Certain Hackney Carriages.) (28 May 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: It is generally recognised that the closing down of bus services, particularly in rural areas, is a serious matter and one has to take into account the social consequences. On these grounds, there is a case for relief from the duty on heavy oils so far as it affects bus services, but I do not think one can limit this question to derv for buses. As the hon. Member for Willesden, East (Mr....
