Orders of the Day — Fair Trading Bill: Exclusion from Section 14 in Respect of Certain Services (17 May 1973)

Sir Tatton Brinton: It seems to me that the hon. Gentleman is mixing two different subjects—the question of discipline, or dealing with misbehaviour by a professional body, and the question of trade practices, which surely is what this Bill is about.

Orders of the Day — Fair Trading Bill: Exclusion from Section 14 in Respect of Certain Services (17 May 1973)

Sir Tatton Brinton: We have spent the last hour discussing matters which are completely irrelevant to the substance of these proposals. I suppose it was to be foreseen, when the hon. Member for Fife, West (Mr. William Hamilton) let loose one of his more bitter tirades against the legal profession, that that should be followed by a couple of lawyers defending their profession. It might be more appropriate if a...

New Clause 4: The Tied Public House (16 May 1973)

Sir Tatton Brinton: in that case, would not he be assisting the hon. Member for Fife, West (Mr. William Hamilton) in his campaign against alcoholism?

Orders of the Day — Fair Trading Bill (13 Dec 1972)

Sir Tatton Brinton: My right hon. and learned Friend is apparently about to leave Part IV and Part V. Why does the Bill in general not contain any criteria on which the public interest should be judged by the commission when a reference is made to it?

Orders of the Day — Fair Trading Bill (13 Dec 1972)

Sir Tatton Brinton: So that the House may evaluate what I have to say, I shall give my qualifications. I am a carpet manufacturer.

Orders of the Day — Fair Trading Bill (13 Dec 1972)

Sir Tatton Brinton: No, not a carpet-bagger. I was born and bred in the town which I represent. In my capacity as a carpet manufacturer, I had some occasion to visit the right hon. Member for Sheffield, Hillsborough (Mr. Darling) when he was a Minister at the Board of Trade, and I take this opportunity to thank him for the unfailing courtesy and justice with which he always listened to what we had to say about...

Orders of the Day — Fair Trading Bill (13 Dec 1972)

Sir Tatton Brinton: I am grateful to the hon. Member for mentioning that type of takeover. I include it in the list about which I said that the motives were purely financial and not economic. I accept what the hon. Member says and I agree that such takeovers occasion considerable worry, but I hope that he will not assert that the worry is confined to the Opposition. When takeover fever is in the air there is...

Orders of the Day — Fair Trading Bill (13 Dec 1972)

Orders of the Day — Clause 101 (17 Jul 1972)

Sir Tatton Brinton: I should like to express my thanks to Kidderminster Borough Council, the town clerk, Mr. John Evans, who is to retire shortly after 25 years' service for his help and advice and to his designated successor, Mr. Norman James, for drafting these Amendments. If the Minister is prepared to accept the Amendments or something on these lines, many districts will have cause to be thankful to both...

Orders of the Day — Clause 101 (17 Jul 1972)

Sir Tatton Brinton: I have not envisaged that it would be necessary to protect county councils against the district councils by providing them with a right of appeal, since in general districts would only be likely to ask the county councils to act for them where they were incapable of acting themselves, whereas there are many cases, and this is my principal point, where there will be powerful districts which...

Orders of the Day — Clause 101 (17 Jul 1972)

Sir Tatton Brinton: In view of the Minister's assurance, if my supporters, of whom there are 48, are content to abide by it, I beg to ask leave to withdraw the Amendment.

Clause 1: "citing of Documents Not Before the House" (1 Mar 1972)

Sir Tatton Brinton: The first part of my point of order, Sir Robert, is to ask you whether it is not our rule that points of order should be brief and to the point, and to ask you to rule when a point of order becomes obvious filibustering, of which we have heard a great deal tonight. [Interruption.]

Clause 1: "citing of Documents Not Before the House" (1 Mar 1972)

Sir Tatton Brinton: Secondly, Sir Robert, how many times may hon. Members raise again a point of order with which you have already dealt?

Orders of the Day — European Communities (26 Oct 1971)

Sir Tatton Brinton: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Cornwall, North (Mr. Pardoe) in much of what he said. I agree with him that the decision we have to take on Thursday night is something which must be taken in the context of the tide of history. The hon. Gentleman began his speech in this vein and although he ended with a discussion of the nuts and bolts of the matter he and many Members of his...

United Kingdom and European Communities (21 Jul 1971)

Sir Tatton Brinton: What was the date of that?

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Abolition of Charge to Capital Gains Tax on Death, etc. (20 May 1971)

Sir Tatton Brinton: Although it may be said by the Revenue that the concession for which we are asking would cost £10 million, £15 million, or whatever the estimate is for this year, and perhaps greater sums in later years, this is not a true cost. It is a deferment of the collection of the capital gains tax. We are not asking for any removal of a capital gains liability. We are asking merely that it should...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Abolition of Charge to Capital Gains Tax on Death, etc. (20 May 1971)

Sir Tatton Brinton: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Abolition of Charge to Capital Gains Tax on Death, etc. (20 May 1971)
