Festival Pleasure Gardens Bill (26 Nov 1951)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: Certainly; that is my view. If these Gardens had broken even at the end of this season I do not believe the Government would have had any justification whatsoever for coming forward with this Bill.

Festival Pleasure Gardens Bill (26 Nov 1951)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: I do not know what the Government's view would have been. As a back bencher of the Conservative Party I could not for one moment have supported a Bill continuing activities of this nature if, in fact, the enterprise as a whole had broken even. The only excuse I can find for the continuance of these activities is that I see some hope of recovering for the taxpayer the monies which have been...

Festival Pleasure Gardens Bill (26 Nov 1951)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: —but most of these unpleasant things consist of trying to put right the mistakes perpetrated by those who now sit on the other side of the House. I do not want to arouse party feeling. This is a matter we have to consider quite objectively. But I am a little perturbed when I find one hon. Member after another getting up from different sides of the House saying that we must, of course, go on...

Festival Pleasure Gardens Bill (26 Nov 1951)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: The hon. Gentleman may not be interested in London; I am not interested in what he is interested in. If the excuse is that London has to be amused, why should London not pay for it? Why should not the London ratepayers be asked to contribute in special form to provide their citizens with amusement? Why should I in my rural area of Somerset, hard pressed as I am in providing houses for people...

Orders of the Day — Re-Armament (23 Jul 1951)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: Mr. Ian L. Orr-Ewing (Weston-super- Mare) indicated dissent.

Orders of the Day — Re-Armament (23 Jul 1951)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: When the hon. Member speaks of little research of that kind going on, he is not trying to tell the country that nothing is being done by firms merely because there is not a great deal of publicity? I am sure we would not wish to mislead the House into thinking that because that is being done by small firms and not by large organisations in this country it is not being done at all. I can...

Orders of the Day — Re-Armament (23 Jul 1951)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: I could not understand the hon. Members argument. Will he explain why it is better to set up a separate type of establishment to try out new materials and new methods quite apart from the field of industry itself? We have always found in the engineering industry that the chaps who know how to do the job are those best able to carry it out, and I still believe that is the best way to do it. It...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: New Clause. — (Extension of Time in Relation to Relief from Income Tax and the Profits Tax for Capital Expenditure on Rehabilitation.) (14 Jun 1951)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: Like everyone else, I am glad that this concession has been made, but I cannot help wondering whether a concession made in this form at this stage is quite as satisfactory as it would have been if the same concession had been made two years ago. I would take the question a little further: is the present form of the concession altogether wise? I am not quite sure that I like to see a specific...

Clause 28. — (Transactions Designed to Avoid Liability to the Profits Tax.) (11 Jun 1951)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: Like my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Angus, South (Captain Duncan), I have not opened my mouth during the long debate on this Clause, and I would not have done so had I had any reassurance during those hours when I was listening to the statements from the Government Front Bench. I had hoped that when this debate started at least some of what we might call the stigma attached to this...

Clause 28. — (Transactions Designed to Avoid Liability to the Profits Tax.) (11 Jun 1951)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: If the hon. Member had been in the Chamber at rather greater length than he was in the early hours of the morning, he might well have found many examples of the sort of thing I mean. I feel quite sure that when the hon. Member studies HANSARD tomorrow he will be able to find the sort of thing I mean. I certainly did not mean to be unfair.

Clause 28. — (Transactions Designed to Avoid Liability to the Profits Tax.) (11 Jun 1951)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: I must leave it to the judgment of the hon. Member when he studies HANSARD. [Interruption.] It would really be advisable for the hon. Member to read HANSARD tomorrow. He can then judge whether my remarks as regards the tone of certain parts of the debate, into which I most certainly read insinuations to which I referred in my speech, were fair or not.

Clause 15. — (Alterations in Personal Reliefs, etc.) (7 Jun 1951)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: The right hon. Gentleman mentioned the professional aspect of this matter. It is not really a question of additional wages or salaries being paid. Would he consider the professional aspect of it?

Clause 15. — (Alterations in Personal Reliefs, etc.) (7 Jun 1951)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: The professional worker. Where it is not just a question of some employer or some firm paying a higher rate of salary in order to meet the case, but a case of a professional worker being unable to obtain more for the services he performs, would the right hon. Gentleman refuse this concession to give additional assistance to him to meet the increasing cost of living and the additional...

Orders of the Day — Budget Proposals and Economic Survey (12 Apr 1951)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: When the hon. Gentleman quoted those figures, was he quoting the savings in salaries only or the saving in salaries plus the saving in establishment, buildings and so on?

Clause 1. — (Calling Up of Reserves and Auxiliaries for Training and Instructor Duties.) (1 Mar 1951)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: I am very grateful for what the hon. Member for Kirkdale (Mr. Keenan) has just said. We must stand by the main principle of the Bill, but I cannot help adding that the Government should put more urgency into the matter. The difficulties which have arisen are largely due to the fact that the Secretary of State has unfortunately been unable to give the Committee details of the machinery that...

Canning Industry (Tinplate Supplies) (27 Feb 1951)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: rose—

Ministers (Transfer of Functions) (22 Feb 1951)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: I find myself in agreement with a great deal that has been said by the hon. Member for Southall (Mr. Pargiter) but I find myself in disagreement with the Government in having introduced this sort of change in this way. There is so much implicit in this type of change that I feel we should have been able to work it out in rather greater detail. A great many of us, on both sides of the House,...

Stationery (Purchase Tax) (14 Feb 1951)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: Will the hon. Member make this quite clear because it is important to do so. I think the trades he has mentioned did not include any users. They only include printers. Am I right? I think they are only the printing trade and not the using trade at all.

Stationery (Purchase Tax) (14 Feb 1951)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: Mainly, or only?

Stationery (Purchase Tax) (14 Feb 1951)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: I do not want to embarrass the hon. Member, but I happen to see in one of the documents with which the House is very familiar that he is recorded as a paper manufacturer, which he might be interested to know. I am not imputing anything whatsoever when I say that.
