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: Yes, but I do not think one can get away from the fact, both from the quotations we have had from the hon. Member for Willesden, East (Mr. Skeet) and those which I have given, that this tax must have had an adverse effect on the competitiveness of the cement industry. I will give one last quotation. It is from an article in the Guardian of 15th March, 1963, which sums the matter up in this...

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: If I might ask the hon. Gentleman a question, does he mean over the whole country?

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: The amount I propose as a reduction is 2d. per gallon.

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: I think it is 2·2d. I would have to check that. I think that the Chancellor of the Exchequer made a fair point when he said that he has to take into account the problems of the coal industry, but, if the choice has to be made, it would be better for industry as a whole to face this squarely and provide some kind of subsidy over a period of years rather than continue this fuel tax which, I...

Business of the House (23 May 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: Will the proposed Bill relating to reform of the House of Lords be introduced before the Whitsun Recess?

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 49. — (Extension of Exemption for Small Estates.) (23 May 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: I support the Amendment, or at least the intention behind it. It is true that this staggering increase in the value of house property, particularly in London and the South-East, can have serious effects on an estate consisting mainly of a house and not other substantial assets. Two or three sisters may live together, having no great savings, and die one after the other in a comparatively...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 52. — (Reduced Duty on Conveyance or Transfer on Sale.) (23 May 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: I beg to move, in page 52, line 7, to leave out from "be" to end of subsection (1) and to insert "nil". The effect of the Amendment is to abolish Stamp Duty on conveyances and transfers of sales. I welcome the Chancellor's proposal so far as it goes. Stamp Duty, which was raised to 2 per cent. in 1947, is being reduced by the Bill to I per cent., and it is also proposed that the ceiling of...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 52. — (Reduced Duty on Conveyance or Transfer on Sale.) (23 May 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: The hon. Member for Ruislip-Northwood (Mr. Crowder) made an ingenious point, but it has no substance. No doubt we shall be told what would be the cost of abolishing Stamp Duty. It would be out of order for me to suggest alternative methods of raising taxation, or to put forward major tax reforms. My object is to bring to the Committee's attention the whole issue of this rather antequated...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 64. — (Abolition of Land Tax.) (23 May 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: I welcome the abolition of the tax. It accords with my views on the radical reform of taxation and the abolition of unnecessary and antiquated taxes. After listening to the sorrowful speech of the hon. Member for Sowerby (Mr. Houghton), which almost brought tears to our eyes, I wonder whether the spokesman of the Treasury can inform us to what extent the change will give rise to reduancy in...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause — 36. — (Scientific Research Allowances.) (21 May 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: I beg to move, in page 32, line 16, at the end to insert: (2) The said section 336 as amended by the foregoing subsection shall have effect as if any expenditure on scientific research were deemed to include any expenditure on pilot plants for the application of such research. The object of the Clause, as I understand it, is to encourage scientific research and I fully approve. The purpose of...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause — 36. — (Scientific Research Allowances.) (21 May 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: The only other wording I can find which throws some light on it is that references to expenditure…include all expenditure incurred for the prosecution of, or the provision of facilities for the prosecution of, scientific research". I am still inclined to the view that the object I have in mind is not covered. But, of course, I hope that I shall be told that I have no need to worry and that...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause — 36. — (Scientific Research Allowances.) (21 May 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: It is the Economic Review of May, 1962. We cannot feel very happy about that state of affairs. Separate comparisons are not made for research and development, unfortunately. But there can be little doubt that international comparison on development alone would be even more disadvantageous to this country. Of course, there is difficulty in competing with large-scale industry in America and I...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause — 36. — (Scientific Research Allowances.) (21 May 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: I accept the invitation to write to the Financial Secretary, and I now have only two points to make. The first concerns the legal interpretation. I am aware of the Section that he read out, of which the material words are: …scientific research' means any activities in the field of natural or applied science for the extension of knowledge… Can one really contend that the erection of plant...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 38. — (Annual Allowances for New Machinery and Plant in Development Districts.) (21 May 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: I beg to move, in page 39, to leave out lines 17 to 20 and to insert: (a) if and so long as, being within Great Britain, it is for the purposes of this Act a development district which is any locality designated by the Board of Trade as being a growth point for a region of high unemployment, or.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 38. — (Annual Allowances for New Machinery and Plant in Development Districts.) (21 May 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: This Amendment is designed to alter the definition of the areas to which the allowances under the Clause will apply. As the Bill stands, the free depreciation is limited to development districts as defined in the Local Employment Act, 1960, and before giving my reasons for moving this Amendment I should like to make what I consider to be two important points. First, I accept the principle...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 38. — (Annual Allowances for New Machinery and Plant in Development Districts.) (21 May 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: On the point of the law as it stands, would not the Chancellor agree that, in practice, development districts have been designated as a result of high levels of unemployment, but not in anticipation of those levels? Even if it were true that one could consider the possibility or risk of the level of unemployment rising, within the terms of the Local Employment Act the Chancellor would surely...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 14. — (Abolition of Charge on Owner-Occupiers.) (16 May 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: Mr. Donald Wade (Huddersfield, West) indicated dissent.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 14. — (Abolition of Charge on Owner-Occupiers.) (16 May 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: I may have an opportunity to develop this a little. At this point, may I say that we were prepared to take half a loaf on some occasions, but that we have always wanted the whole loaf?

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 14. — (Abolition of Charge on Owner-Occupiers.) (16 May 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: I am inclined to agree with the right hon. Member for Basset-law (Mr. Bellenger) that those who own several houses are the most likely to pay no Schedule A tax owing to the amount that they are able to spend on repairs, thereby cancelling out their Schedule A tax by maintenance claims. Therefore, that somewhat diminishes the merits, if any, of this Amendment. The Amendment is somewhat...

House of Lords Reform (15 May 1963)

Mr Donald Wade: While it is true that the Report of the Select Committee was unanimous, I did not consider that it was nearly radical enough and said so at the time. Does the right hon. Gentleman agree that it would be unwise to rush this legislation through, and, if so, may we have an assurance that there will be adequate time to give it careful consideration?
