Business of the House (12 Jun 1969)

Mr Frederic Harris: When looking into this matter, will the hon.

Mortgage Interest Rate (17 Mar 1969)

Mr Frederic Harris: As this increase is the natural outcome of the development of Government economic and financial policies over the last few years, how can the Minister say to young people that they can take out mortgages?

Orders of the Day — Customs (Import Deposits) Bill (28 Nov 1968)

Orders of the Day — Customs (Import Deposits) Bill (28 Nov 1968)

Mr Frederic Harris: If I understood the hon. Member for Heywood and Royton (Mr. Bartlett), rightly, I think in truth that he is opposed to this Measure. However, he appeared to sit on several fences at the same time and, as he is an accountant, I was somewhat surprised at a number of the questions which he asked the Minister. Then again, he kept referring to this as a deflationary measure, whereas I would have...

Clause 6: Other Amendments as to Proxy and Postal Voting (27 Nov 1968)

Mr Frederic Harris: The hon. Member for Woolwich, West (Mr. Hamling) made a serious speech on this important subject, which is more than can be said of the remarks of most of his hon.

He certainly did that today, followed by a Punch...
