Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Cigarettes (Distribution) (23 Feb 1954)

Mr Henry Strauss: While there are restrictions on supplies of dollar tobacco it is impossible to increase the production of certain brands beyond a certain point. I do not think there is a case for referring this matter to the Monopolies Commission, but it may be that some aspects of the distribution arrangements fall within the scope of the general inquiry that is taking place under Section 15 of the Act.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: New Factories and Extensions, Birkenhead (23 Feb 1954)

Mr Henry Strauss: According to the records of the Board of Trade, which relate solely to new factories and extensions of over 5,000 square feet, two factories and three extensions, totalling 98,000 square feet and 35,000 square feet respectively, have been started in this area since 1st January, 1952.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: New Factories and Extensions, Birkenhead (23 Feb 1954)

Mr Henry Strauss: The hon. Gentleman's supplementary question refers to Mersey-side, but he will realise that the figures for which he asked are for Birkenhead only. The figures for the Development Area are, of course, greater.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Companies, Dublin (U.K. Property) (23 Feb 1954)

Mr Henry Strauss: Six companies incorporated in Dublin, which have property-owning as their main object, are registered with the Registrar of Companies under Part X of the Companies Act, 1948. I would point out that an oversea company is obliged to register under Part X only if it has established a place of business in this country.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Companies, Dublin (U.K. Property) (23 Feb 1954)

Mr Henry Strauss: If the hon. and gallant Gentleman has any evidence of apparent breaches of the Companies Act, my right hon. Friend would be grateful if he would bring them to his notice.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Companies, Dublin (U.K. Property) (23 Feb 1954)

Mr Henry Strauss: The hon. Gentleman's question involves questions both of fact and of law which would have to be considered in each individual case.

Oral Answers to Questions — British Army: Furniture (Kite Mark) (16 Feb 1954)

Mr Henry Strauss: The British Standards Institution informs me that it has so far licensed 207 manufacturers to apply the Kite mark to their furniture.

Oral Answers to Questions — British Army: Furniture (Kite Mark) (16 Feb 1954)

Mr Henry Strauss: I am satisfied that what I said in that debate has been carried out. I never said that all manufacturers would apply the Kite mark; what I said was that it would be the public who would effectively determine this. The public can now obtain furniture of various styles with the Kite mark if it so desires.

Oral Answers to Questions — British Army: Furniture (Kite Mark) (16 Feb 1954)

Mr Henry Strauss: I cannot tell the right hon. Gentleman the proportion, and indeed mere figures of manufacturers would be a little misleading on account of the different sizes of the various concerns, but some of the large manufacturers are applying the mark. The whole House shares the desire that the public should not buy shoddy furniture but, as the public is now able to obtain furniture of the various...

Orders of the Day — Development of Inventions Bill (1 Feb 1954)

Mr Henry Strauss: Under Clause 2 (2) the industry must have "practical requirements" but no special method is laid down by which these must come to the knowledge of the Corporation. It is not intended by the Measure to give the Corporation general powers to undertake surveys or investigations to discover the practical needs of industry. That can best be done by industry itself, although perhaps with the help...

Orders of the Day — Development of Inventions Bill (26 Jan 1954)

Mr Henry Strauss: The Bill has had a most friendly reception from every quarter of the House. That is a tribute not merely to the fact that everything we seek to do in the Bill commands the assent of hon. Members, but also to the work of the Corporation. I was very glad that the right hon. Member for Brighouse and Spenborough (Mr. J. Edwards) paid a deserved tribute to the Corporation and that hon. Members on...

Cinematograph Film Production (Special Loans) Bill (10 Dec 1953)

Mr Henry Strauss: I think it will be convenient if I answer briefly some of the points that have been made. May I say at once to the hon. Member for Oldham, West (Mr. Hale) that he did misunderstand me if he thought I said that the National Film Finance Corporation would never consider the merits of a film or its value from the point of view of culture and so forth. I think the passage in a previous speech...

Cinematograph Film Production (Special Loans) Bill (10 Dec 1953)

Mr Henry Strauss: I think the hon. Gentleman has a wholly erroneous view of the character of the hon. Member for Cheetham.

Cinematograph Film Production (Special Loans) Bill (10 Dec 1953)

Mr Henry Strauss: Then that makes us unanimous. I believe that the Bill will perform a useful purpose which is strongly supported by the large majority of hon. Members. I am not going into the merits of the period for which the powers are being extended, because that was debated on the Committee stage, and the House came to a decision.

Cinematograph Film Production (Special Loans) Bill (10 Dec 1953)

Mr Henry Strauss: The hon. Gentleman must realise that he is not a monopolist and that other people are entitled to speak in this House. The Corporation performs a useful function, and it is right that its ability to lend capital to a section of the British film-producing industry should continue. Clause 2 will enable schemes of composition to be entered into by the Corporation which, if it were not a...

Orders of the Day — Lace Furnishings Industry (Export Promotion Levy) (7 Dec 1953)

Mr Henry Strauss: I beg to move. That the Draft Lace Furnishings Industry (Export Promotion Levy) (Amendment No. 2) Order, 1953, a copy of which was laid before this House on 23rd November, be approved. This Order amends the Order which was originally made in 1951 under Section 9 of the Industrial Organisation and Development Act, 1947. That Order imposed a levy for export promotion on the lace furnishings...

Orders of the Day — Lace Industry (Scientific Research Levy) (7 Dec 1953)

Mr Henry Strauss: I beg to move, That the Draft Lace Industry (Scientific Research Levy) (Amendment No. 2) Order, 1953, a copy of which was laid before this House on 23rd November, be approved. This Order amends the Order which was first imposed in 1951 for funds for scientific research and it brings in about £10,000 a year. The levy in this case also is calculated for some sections by reference to yarn...

Orders of the Day — Lace Industry (Scientific Research Levy) (7 Dec 1953)

Mr Henry Strauss: Mr. Strauss indicated assent.

Orders of the Day — Cinematograph Film Production (Special Loans) Bill: Clause 1. — (Extension of Period for Making Loans.) (3 Dec 1953)

Mr Henry Strauss: I think that it will be generally convenient if I do not repeat any argument that was used in the Second Reading debate but confine myself to the Amendment proposed by the hon. Member for Cheetham (Mr. H. Lever). The effect of the hon. Member's proposal would be that the powers of the Corporation would be extended for one year only. For the reasons given by almost every other hon. Member...

Orders of the Day — Cinematograph Film Production (Special Loans) Bill: Clause 1. — (Extension of Period for Making Loans.) (3 Dec 1953)

Mr Henry Strauss: I cannot give the hon. Member any later figures than are contained in the last Annual Report of the Corporation. When he asks what the cost will be, he must be well aware that the great bulk of the money which it is likely that we shall not recover was lost in the very early stages of the Corporation's life. It would not be right, nor, I believe would it be in order, now to deal with...
