Stationery (Purchase Tax) (14 Feb 1951)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: I beg the hon. Member's pardon.

Stationery (Purchase Tax) (14 Feb 1951)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: As a printer.

Stationery (Purchase Tax) (14 Feb 1951)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: I think we must all agree to be impressed hypothetically by the hypothetical appeal of the hon. Member for Bethnal Green (Mr. Holman). But I think the entire case he put forward was based on the assumption which really did not exist at all. He mentioned the Co-operative societies—

Stationery (Purchase Tax) (14 Feb 1951)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: I apologise to the hon. Member. I think he referred to the taxation on what the Co-operative societies sell. The whole question is not what the Co-operative societies or any individual may sell, but what they use for themselves. I would refer him to the actual Order: Notice by the Commissioners of Customs and Excise: Purchase Tax on Paper Stationery dated January 1951: Paragraph 8 is headed:...

Stationery (Purchase Tax) (14 Feb 1951)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: I am afraid the hon. Gentleman has rather contradicted the terms of the Order. I would refer him to page 3, paragraph 8, where it is made clear that this Order brings into effect an entirely new imposition of tax. That is my point. The effect of this Order could have been achieved by an entirely different method. If one refers to the Finance Act, 1946. on which this Order is really based, one...

Stationery (Purchase Tax) (14 Feb 1951)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: On a point of order. The Financial Secretary has already addressed the House once. He has not obtained leave to address it a second time.

Stationery (Purchase Tax) (14 Feb 1951)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: rose—

Orders of the Day — Festival of Britain (Sunday Opening) Bill: Clause 1. — (Sunday Opening of Exhibitions and Gardens.) (28 Nov 1950)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: On a point of Order, Sir Charles. Are you not in the singular?

Orders of the Day — Festival of Britain (Sunday Opening) Bill: Clause 1. — (Sunday Opening of Exhibitions and Gardens.) (28 Nov 1950)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: I am entirely with the Attorney-General in resisting the Amendment, but there is a point I should like to clear up. The system is sometimes used of working on a roster so that all those engaged within an enterprise must take their turn in working on a Sunday. What assurance can the right hon. and learned Gentleman give in this matter? He would agree that in that case it becomes a condition of...

Orders of the Day — Festival of Britain (Sunday Opening) Bill (23 Nov 1950)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: The right hon. Gentleman used the word "advice," and he qualified it by saying that it was in accordance with the advice that they had that certain things should be done. Am I misunderstanding the position if I ask whether it would create a more accurate picture to say there was no objection? I am sure that the right hon. Gentleman would not mean to suggest that the advice was given by the...

Orders of the Day — Festival of Britain (Sunday Opening) Bill (23 Nov 1950)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: I thank the hon. Gentleman for giving way to me. I do not want to repeat the interjection that I made at the end of the Lord President's speech, but I think I am not misinterpreting the right hon. Gentleman when I remind the hon. Gentleman of what he said. It was that it is not a question of views being given by this body but of an answer being given to a question which was put. We are not,...

Orders of the Day — Festival of Britain (Sunday Opening) Bill (23 Nov 1950)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: I beg to move, to leave out "now," and at the end of the Question to add "upon this day six months." In other words, this is a Motion to reject the Bill on Second Reading. So far this debate has shown how very kindly and understanding practically everybody in this House is on such matters as are raised in the course of a debate of this nature. The Lord President of the Council himself has...

Orders of the Day — Festival of Britain (Sunday Opening) Bill (23 Nov 1950)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: No, I cannot give way. Thirdly I would come to another point which is contained in a most aggressive leading article in "The Times" today and which, I believe, was gathered up and swallowed by an hon. Member who has addressed the House and who has violent views on the matter. It is not by any means the die-hard element of rigid puritanism which is opposing this Bill. Having removed from the...

Orders of the Day — Festival of Britain (Sunday Opening) Bill (23 Nov 1950)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: I do not see any point of the hon. Member being in the House at all if he does not believe anything an hon. Member says. I think that by this Motion to reject the Bill we will be doing more to enable the Festival to live up to its title as being the Festival of Britain than anything which is in the Bill itself. It has been mentioned already that this is not a London affair pure and simple. I...

Orders of the Day — Festival of Britain (Sunday Opening) Bill (23 Nov 1950)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: I have not the least idea whether he supports it. As the Archbishop is not a Member of this House, I doubt very much whether his vote would be of much effect. As far as I know, he has not published any open statement about it. If he supports it, well and good—I will not quarrel with him—but I am certain that the Archbishop, whom I do not know but deeply respect, would be the last to say...

Orders of the Day — Festival of Britain (Sunday Opening) Bill (23 Nov 1950)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: It is a very different thing to see in Weston-super-Mare, which I have the honour to represent, the visitors going to the fun fair on the pier and to talk to the residents. I would remind hon. Members that the majority of those who come to Weston-super-Mare for the day come either from South Wales or Birmingham.

Orders of the Day — Festival of Britain (Sunday Opening) Bill (23 Nov 1950)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: I am coming to the question of local views if the hon. Member will bear with me. It has been announced in the Press, though not through any direct activity of my own, that I have my name down to the Motion for the rejection of this Bill. I have never made any secret of the fact that I would do anything I could to stop an extension of the custom of employing labour on Sunday. I have no desire,...

Orders of the Day — Festival of Britain (Sunday Opening) Bill (23 Nov 1950)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: Let me finish. I wonder what would be the reaction of hon. Gentlemen opposite to that? I think they would be just as worried, just as shocked and just as troubled in that matter as I am. The hon. Member for Dagenham (Mr. Parker) took the line that Sunday did not matter any more than any other day in the week. He said, "Let us get ahead with the job." When the hon. Member and other hon....
