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 will accept your Ruling, Sir Eric, and leave aside the questions which I wanted to deal with and which are relevant to the evolution of demand but are, as you rightly said, outside the scope of this debate. The Chancellor has decided on orthodox strategy, as he said last month. He will now no doubt feel that the regulator is part of the equipment he needs. He has propounded the doctrine of...

Orders of the Day — PRICES AND INCOMES (No. 2) BILL (13 Jun 1967)

Mr David Howell: The right hon. Gentleman mentioned the acceleration of productivity agreements which may have been brought about by this policy, but would he not also agree that there are many instances in which productivity agreements and incentive payment schemes have been held back or stopped by this policy? Does not that far outweigh the gains he mentioned?

Orders of the Day — PRICES AND INCOMES (No. 2) BILL (13 Jun 1967)

Mr David Howell: I gladly join with my hon. Friends, and I hope with some hon. Members opposite, in opposing the Bill. I personally am delighted that my own party, the Conservative Party, has reached the stage, after careful deliberation, where it feels that it can oppose the Bill and dissociate itself completely from its vague and imprecise language and woolly thinking, and, therefore, rather illiberal...

Orders of the Day — PRICES AND INCOMES (No. 2) BILL (13 Jun 1967)

Mr David Howell: That is not my understanding of the Board's position. Certainly the Board wishes to continue much of the excellent work which it has done already in promoting greater efficiency and improving competitiveness and improving wage structures. That gives rise to a much broader question, which is still connected with the operation of a policy of this kind, and which is whether hon. Members will...

Orders of the Day — PRICES AND INCOMES (No. 2) BILL (13 Jun 1967)

Mr David Howell: I did not say trade unions in general; I said some trade unionists. Secondly, it is not a question of legal sanctions in collective bargains. Collective bargains should be as enforceable as employers and employees want. But I would have thought that many trade unionists would believe as I do that the time has come when we can strengthen the collective bargaining system and the way in which...

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Power: European Economic Community (4 Jul 1967)

Mr David Howell: Is the right hon. Gentleman trying to reach a transitional associate status for Britain?

Orders of the Day — Prices and Incomes (No. 2) Bill (10 Jul 1967)

Mr David Howell: May I, as a member of the Committee which considered the Bill upstairs, extend a welcome to the hon. Member for Penistone (Mr. Mendelson) and his hon. Friends to our deliberations at this stage. They were, at times, sorely missed. I must break the harmony which seems to be growing between us on the question of retail prices, because the hon. Member for Penistone asserted that housewives were...

Orders of the Day — Prices and Incomes (No. 2) Bill (10 Jul 1967)

Mr David Howell: Before he reads that conclusion into his personal record, may I tell him that simply because the Government's present methods have failed to keep down prices are wrong, this does not mean that we do not advocate—and past Conservative Administrations have advocated—legislation to affect the level of prices. The abolition of resale price maintenance is a classic example of this, for which...

Orders of the Day — Prices and Incomes (No. 2) Bill (10 Jul 1967)

Mr David Howell: I beg to move Amendment No. 7, in page 1, line 16, after 'settlement', to insert: 'and that recommendation arises from the terms of reference originally given to the Board'. The purpose of moving this Amendment is to make the Government and those concerned with implementing the Bill stop to ask themselves at this stage, as they plunge on into the more and more tortuous complexities of this...

Orders of the Day — Prices and Incomes (No. 2) Bill (10 Jul 1967)

Mr David Howell: As I tried to explain at the beginning of my speech the purpose of the Amendment is to make those who have to implement the Bill when it becomes an Act ask themselves whether the terms of reference which were originally laid down in Part I of the Prices and Incomes Act, the parent Act, are the ones to which they would like the Board to adhere, to which the Board is adhering, and to which it...

Orders of the Day — Prices and Incomes (No. 2) Bill (10 Jul 1967)

Mr David Howell: Mr. David Howell rose—

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: School Building Programme (Surrey) (27 Jul 1967)

Mr David Howell: asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science by what date he intends to give approval to the county of Surrey's secondary school building programmes for 1968–69 and 1969–70.

Orders of the Day — Economic Affairs (7 Nov 1967)

Mr David Howell: Even though the hon. Member for Lewisham, West (Mr. Dickens) would not allow me to intervene I derive pleasure from following him, because although it goes without saying that I disagree with the hotchpotch of Socialist prescriptions that he recommends as his alternative, I find that his analysis of our economic difficulties and his comments on the situation as he sees it as convincing as,...

Orders of the Day — Economic Affairs (7 Nov 1967)

Mr David Howell: This is the basic theory of the present Government, however much it is denied or dressed up. In my analysis I share the view of the hon. Member for Lewisham, West, that the Government's argument is so riddled with fallacies and so flatly contradicted by events before our eyes that it is difficult to know where to begin attacking it. Three things we know beyond all doubt. The first,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Overseas Development: Economic Aid and Assistance (9 Nov 1967)

Mr David Howell: asked the Minister of Overseas Development what response Her Majesty's Government propose to make to the recent official proposal of the President of the World Bank that a new international committee of experts should be set up to review the whole field of economic aid and assistance, on the lines of the Franks Committee which preceded the Marshall Plan.

Oral Answers to Questions — Overseas Development: Economic Aid and Assistance (9 Nov 1967)

Mr David Howell: That response is welcome as far as it goes, but will the right hon. Gentleman recognise that we are now reaching a time of decision in the whole world structure of economic aid and assistance and it is, therefore, imperative for this country to show an early response and take a lead in meeting this initiative?

Oral Answers to Questions — Economic Affairs: National Plan (16 Nov 1967)

Mr David Howell: Can the Minister tell us whether Parliament is to have a chance of re-examining the assumptions or underlying thinking in the new plan before it appears as a finished document?

International Monetary Fund (Letter of Intent) (5 Dec 1967)

Mr David Howell: It would be churlish of me, speaking from the back benches below the Gangway, not to begin by congratulating the hon. Member for Ebbw Vale (Mr. Michael Foot) for the part he has played with others in giving us the opportunity to have this debate, to hear the various diverting speeches, including the profound and utterly sensible speech of the hon. Member for Stoke-on-Trent, Central (Mr....

Oral Answers to Questions — European Economic Community (23 Jan 1968)

Mr David Howell: Has the right hon. Gentleman seen the recent Benelux proposals for closer economic and political links between the Five and Britain and the three other countries seeking entry to the Common Market, links outside the Treaty of Rome? What view does the right hon. Gentleman take of that?

Orders of the Day — Growth of Bureaucracy (29 Jan 1968)

Mr David Howell: The most notable point in the speech of the hon. Member for Edinburgh, East (Mr. Willis) and in the other speeches from the benches opposite, and what to me is the serious and central point of the debate, is the staggering contrast between those utterances and the high flown policies and undertakings of the Labour Party in 1963–64. All the talk then was about streamlining government and...
