Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No. 2) BILL.: Clause 11. — (Right of stockholders to continue holdings in five per cent. War Loan; requirement of application for cash repayments; &c.) (1 Oct 1931)

Mr Edward Wise: I cannot help feeling that the remarks in the latter part of the speech of the hon. and gallant Member for Dulwich (Sir F. Hall) would have produced more effect if they had been made before certain very expensive credits and contracts were entered into in Paris and New York, to which I referred last night. I want to deal with the more general question of conversion which is raised by this...

Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No. 2) BILL.: Clause 11. — (Right of stockholders to continue holdings in five per cent. War Loan; requirement of application for cash repayments; &c.) (1 Oct 1931)

Mr Edward Wise: I am perfectly well aware of that; the widows and orphans are always trotted out on these occasions; but, when it is a question of dealing with obligations of this kind, the Government does nothing of that sort, but sticks to the letter of the prospectus and gets the applause of hon. Members opposite; and, far from exercising any kind of pressure, despite the circumstances of the country, it...

Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No. 2) BILL.: Clause 11. — (Right of stockholders to continue holdings in five per cent. War Loan; requirement of application for cash repayments; &c.) (1 Oct 1931)

Mr Edward Wise: The hon. Member has been attending the Debates on the National Economy Bill, and he will find in the Schedule to that Bill specific power to break contractual and statutory obligations on the part of His Majesty's Government to persons in their employ and to persons entitled to benefit under existing legislation. There is no question about what is being done.

Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No. 2) BILL.: Clause 11. — (Right of stockholders to continue holdings in five per cent. War Loan; requirement of application for cash repayments; &c.) (1 Oct 1931)

Mr Edward Wise: Yes. I advise the hon. Member to refer to the Bill itself. Obviously he has not been studying it with the same zeal with which he has been studying these conversion terms, but he will have to do so, no doubt, within a few weeks.

Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No. 2) BILL.: Clause 11. — (Right of stockholders to continue holdings in five per cent. War Loan; requirement of application for cash repayments; &c.) (1 Oct 1931)

Mr Edward Wise: The purpose of this conversion operation is twofold—to take off the country the immense burden which these debts impose upon it, and also to take the opportunity, if it occurs or if it can be made, to reduce the excessive amount that goes to the holders of fixed interest-bearing securities on account of the fall in prices. A few days ago I asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he...

Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No. 2) BILL.: Clause 11. — (Right of stockholders to continue holdings in five per cent. War Loan; requirement of application for cash repayments; &c.) (1 Oct 1931)

Mr Edward Wise: I am giving the case as it is stated; the hon. Member can challenge it in a moment. The result of the calculation is to show that in this typical case—the case of a man with £10,000 a year derived from War Loan—the reduction of taxation and the increase in the purchasing power of money have practically doubled the real income in eight years. That is an authoritative statement of the...

Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No. 2) BILL.: Clause 22. — (Provisions in cases where Treasury has power to borrow money.) (1 Oct 1931)

Mr Edward Wise: I beg to move, in page 13, line 12, after the word "not," to insert the words "citizens of or." The purpose of this Amendment and of the following Amendment in Subsection (1, b) of Clause 22—in line 18, after the word "in," to insert the words "nor citizens of "—is to take out of the operation of this Clause British subjects resident or partly resident abroad. The purpose of the Clause is...

Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No. 2) BILL.: Clause 22. — (Provisions in cases where Treasury has power to borrow money.) (1 Oct 1931)

Mr Edward Wise: I think that is the more convenient course, and that was sug- gested to me by your predecessor in the Chair, Sir, at an earlier stage of the discussion. The present law is that, if you can prove foreign domicile, a very tricky and difficult point of law, you can escape duty on foreign holdings, but you are still liable to duty on property in the United Kingdom, including War Loan. The effect...

Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No. 2) BILL.: Clause 22. — (Provisions in cases where Treasury has power to borrow money.) (1 Oct 1931)

Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No. 2) BILL.: Clause 22. — (Provisions in cases where Treasury has power to borrow money.) (1 Oct 1931)

Mr Edward Wise: Does the hon. and gallant. Gentleman read the Clause as being limited to conversion operations? It is perfectly general. You can issue stock under any Act. It says nothing about conversion and nothing about 5 per cent. War Loan.
