Prayers: Small Businesses (10 Feb 1967)

Mr David Howell: There is, of course, another point of view. What all small firms have in common is the invader policy. They are setting out to upset and challenge larger firms and, so far from being in line with the larger firms, they are in challenge against them.

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Defence: Anglo-French Variable Geometry Aircraft (1 Mar 1967)

Mr David Howell: Would the Minister not agree that if the Germans are to produce this aircraft, it is absolutely essential that they should participate in the benefits of development as well?

Oral Answers to Questions — European Technological Community (16 Mar 1967)

Mr David Howell: asked the Prime Minister whether he discussed his proposals for a European technology community during his recent visit to European capitals.

Oral Answers to Questions — European Technological Community (16 Mar 1967)

Mr David Howell: Does not the Prime Minister recognise that if this idea of a technology community is to have any real meaning it involves a very high degree of political and defence integration and co-ordination of purchasing policies? Would he reassure the House that he is converted to that kind of Europeanism?

Public Expenditure (Growth) (20 Mar 1967)

Mr David Howell: Mr. David Howell (Guildford) rose—

Public Expenditure (Growth) (20 Mar 1967)

Mr David Howell: Briefly, Mr. Speaker.

Public Expenditure (Growth) (20 Mar 1967)

Mr David Howell: With respect, Mr. Speaker, I informed the Chair earlier in the day that I wished to speak. I shall be very brief. I wish merely to expand on one or two of the very interesting points which were raised by my hon. Friend the Member for Mid-Bedfordshire (Mr. Hastings). It seemed to me that in his speech he touched on a rather broader theme, which will come up in debates on the Budget during the...

Public Expenditure (Growth) (20 Mar 1967)

Mr David Howell: If the hon. Gentleman will listen he will understand that what he is saying reflects a complete misunderstanding of my proposition about the development and control of public spending. I raise questions of decisions on public spending—that is necessary. But to suggest that I am, as it were, singing the familiar and, I agree, rather pointless chorus of saying, "Let us spend more on...

Public Expenditure (Growth) (20 Mar 1967)

Mr David Howell: It is not quite as simple as that. In some areas, decisions must be taken on the basis of the profit motive. My argument is that those areas could be larger than they are at present. There are many areas where we are not bringing to bear the possible incentive effect which we could if the profit motive were more widely used and encouraged. Similarly, I accept that, over large areas of the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Economic Affairs: Prices, Incomes and Productivity (23 Mar 1967)

Mr David Howell: Further to the question asked by my hon. Friend the Member for Chelmsford (Mr. St. John-Stevas), would not the First Secretary of State agree that if the wages bill is to rise by 6 per cent. this year and if output is likely to rise by only 2 per cent., very considerable other measures will be needed besides prices and incomes policy if stability is to be anything like maintained?

Oral Answers to Questions — Economic Affairs: Prices and Incomes Board Chairman (Statements) (23 Mar 1967)

Mr David Howell: Surely the First Secretary of State recognises that it is not so much a question of limitations on the Chairman of the Board as of making him and, indeed, the leaders of other outside bodies which the Government have set up accountable to this House and to Parliament?

Oral Answers to Questions — United Kingdom and Russia (Economic Planning) (23 Mar 1967)

Mr David Howell: Is the Prime Minister aware that Russian economic planning nowadays lays increasing emphasis on individual incentives? If there is to be any co-ordination, will he ensure that some emphasis is laid on incentives in this country?

Business of the House (6 Apr 1967)

Mr David Howell: Does the Leader of the House recognise that the "Green Paper" put out by the Department of Economic Affairs is a rather new approach to public policy taking? Is he satisfied with the arrangements for the House to take part in this debate? Does not this reinforce the case for an all-party Committee on economic affairs so that we can discuss the very complex economic judgments contained in a...

Orders of the Day — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (12 Apr 1967)

Mr David Howell: I agree substantially with the excellent speech which has been made by the hon. Member for Ashton-under-Lyne (Mr. Sheldon) and would like to turn to some of the basic thinking behind the Budget, in particular, the phrase "the growth of productive potential", which is now being peddled vigorously by Treasury publications and the Department of Economic Affairs, to which the Chancellor yesterday...

Post Office (Data Processing Service) Bill (24 Apr 1967)

Mr David Howell: As several hon. Members have said, the Bill has profound implications, and that will be agreed whether we are for it or against it. I therefore share the amazement of my hon. Friends that a Measure which may affect the fabric of our society in a few years' time should have been shoved away as non-controversial last Wednesday. I am grateful that we have this further opportunity to discuss it,...

Post Office (Data Processing Service) Bill (24 Apr 1967)

Mr David Howell: I was about to say that I am convinced that this is an exciting and important idea. Certainly, there should be a national computer service. What I am saying is that there is every possibility of introducing both public power and private resources into its running. In other countries, it is possible to run national network not exclusively on the basis of nationalised industries. It is...

Oral Answers to Questions — House of Commons: Regional Employment Premium (Select Committee) (24 Apr 1967)

Mr David Howell: asked the Lord President of the Council whether he will now move to set up a Select Committee to enable Parliament to play its part in the public discussion initiated by Her Majesty's Government on the proposal for a regional employment premium.

Oral Answers to Questions — House of Commons: Regional Employment Premium (Select Committee) (24 Apr 1967)

Mr David Howell: While welcoming that news, may I ask whether the Leader of the House will agree that there are some very complicated economic arguments advanced in the Green Paper, and is it not right that hon. Members should have the opportunity to question both the Ministers and the economic advisers who thought up these ideas, if possible in public? Does he not agree that if this technique is to be used...

FINANCE (No. 2) BILL: Clause 1. — (TERMINATION OF SURCHARGE UNDER FINANCE ACT, 1961, s. 9, AND RELATED INCREASES IN DUTIES.) (1 Jun 1967)

Mr David Howell: I agree very much with my hon. Friend the Member for Worthing (Mr. Higgins) that, if we are to make a clear and sensible judgment about the renewal of the regulator and this Amendment, we must give an airing to the question of the evolution of demand in the short and medium term, and press the Chancellor to be a little more explicit about the view which he takes. I do not go along with the...

FINANCE (No. 2) BILL: Clause 1. — (TERMINATION OF SURCHARGE UNDER FINANCE ACT, 1961, s. 9, AND RELATED INCREASES IN DUTIES.) (1 Jun 1967)

Mr David Howell: I accept your Ruling, Sir Eric. I was trying to argue that, in order to assess the background against which the regulator must be used, we must have some idea of the way in which it is thought demand will move and the way perhaps in which the different components of demand could move with various changes in policy. I accept, however, that I may have been wandering into areas beyond that, and...
