Orders of the Day — Ways and Means (24 Oct 1945)

Mr Jack Diamond: It is the custom in this House that, when a new boy rises to make his maiden speech—if I may mingle my genders—he should say with all due modesty that he requests the indulgence of the House. That is a custom to which I most gladly subscribe, and I shall need that indulgence in great measure. There is a further custom that he should also say how delighted he is to have caught your eye,...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 18. — (Tax free annuities, etc.) (28 Nov 1945)

Mr Jack Diamond: This is a small point, but perhaps the Solicitor-General could give me an answer. It does not refer to an increase or diminution of revenue, so far as the Chancellor is concerned. This is an important Clause, because it is an example of the State interfering with a contract made between two subjects. It interferes with that contract to this extent. It says that, whereas it was the intention...

Clause 2. — (The Building Materials and Housing Fund.) (3 Dec 1945)

Mr Jack Diamond: Has the hon. and gallant Gentleman noticed that the words "profit or loss" appear in the Amendment?

Orders of the Day — Economic Affairs (Manpower) (28 Feb 1946)

Mr Jack Diamond: In view of the short time at my disposal, the hon. Member for Bury (Mr. W. Fletcher) will forgive me if I do not follow up his points. He referred to hon. Members on this side of the House as being "mandated men," and to those on his side of the House as being "Marxian mice." I think, particularly as far as he himself is concerned, that is a rather good example of the British attitude of...

New Clause. — (Relief for tenants on the maintenance of property.) (15 Jul 1946)

Mr Jack Diamond: Would the hon. and gallant Gentleman tell us whether he is talking about maintenance expenditure, or capital expenditure in respect of which the relief is not allowable to landlord or tenant?

Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No. 2) BILL (19 Jul 1946)

Mr Jack Diamond: I feel sure the whole House will forgive me if I do not follow the somewhat lugubrious speech which we have just heard from the hon. Gentleman the Member for Orpington (Sir W. Smithers), on his steamroller journey down the road of serfdom, as I think he put it. I would refer to one remark which I did detect had some connection with the Finance Bill, namely, that it does, of course, depend...

Orders of the Day — Housing (30 Jul 1946)

Mr Jack Diamond: I wish it had been in Order for me to have produced a large mirror and held it behind the right hon. Gentleman the Minister of Health, while the hon. Member for Hertford (Mr. Walker-Smith) was quoting the words of Charles James Fox and referring to humility, because then the hon. Member could have seen the reflection of his own form. I accept what the hon. Member said about this question of...

Orders of the Day — Housing (30 Jul 1946)

Mr Jack Diamond: I am not trying to put words which he did not use into the mouth of the hon. and gallant Member, but I understood him to say that there was no housing problem at the start of the war—

Orders of the Day — Housing (30 Jul 1946)

Mr Jack Diamond: —and that he was satisfied with the position before the war. Many hon. Members have addressed remarks to him on that point, and I could not understand his statement. The other hon. Member who would be delighted if we did not have priorities would be the hon. Member for West Fife (Mr. Gallacher), because, if we did not have priorities, but left private enterprise to go its own sweet way, we...

Orders of the Day — Housing (30 Jul 1946)

Mr Jack Diamond: I am glad to hear the hon. Member say that, because I am sure there must be a distinction in his mind on the matter which is not in the mind of anybody else. It is certainly not in the minds of people who read the Press and—

Orders of the Day — Housing (30 Jul 1946)

Mr Jack Diamond: I am not fully aware of the contents of that Circular, but if the hon. Member wishes to say exactly what point he is dealing with, I shall be glad to answer it.

Orders of the Day — Housing (30 Jul 1946)

Mr Jack Diamond: The only manageable way of seeing that houses are built for people who need them, and the only manageable way of seeing that materials are used in the best way, is to have the work done, as far as possible, through local authorities—it being clearly recognised that, in the vast majority of cases, local authorities employ those very private enterprise firms which hon. Members opposite say...

Orders of the Day — Housing (30 Jul 1946)

Mr Jack Diamond: I will give way with pleasure to the hon. Member, subject to your Ruling, Mr. Speaker. I do not wish to take advantage of him. Before the war, there was a good deal of what was called "jerry-building," and if the hon. Member is talking about jerry-building, I understand precisely what he is saying. That was a means by which building was done very cheaply. Indeed, everybody engaged on...

Orders of the Day — Housing (30 Jul 1946)

Mr Jack Diamond: Does the hon. Gentleman realise that all these things, which he is putting forward with such freshness, have been in force during the war by reason of the factory rules?

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: P.A.Y.E. (Single Table System) (22 Oct 1946)

Mr Jack Diamond: asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will make a statement on the question of giving early effect, under P.A.Y.E., to Budgetary-changes in the Income Tax.

Production (21 Nov 1946)

Mr Jack Diamond: Is the hon. Member aware that at this moment contracts are being let at 21s. per foot?

Orders of the Day — Industrial Organisation Bill (13 Feb 1947)

Mr Jack Diamond: Following the hon. Member for Central Aberdeen and Kincardine (Mr. Spence), I find that my task is indeed light, because throughout the latter part of his speech he argued in favour of the Bill in almost every respect. In fact the only respect in which he was not in favour of the Bill was on the question of standardisation.

Orders of the Day — Industrial Organisation Bill (13 Feb 1947)

Mr Jack Diamond: I understand that hon. Members opposite intend to vote against the Bill. Each hon. Member in succession has made that clear, but no one has given any reason for doing so I was not expecting the hon. Member to do so when his Front Bench had failed to give a lead. It seems to be agreed by both sides of the House that no objection can be taken to the general objects. which are outlined in the...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill (19 May 1947)

Mr Jack Diamond: I have been waiting for the Opposition to tell the House what it is particularly they are opposing in the Bill. They are against the Profits Tax. It is somewhat difficult for me to follow the argument of the right hon. and gallant Gentleman, that the Chancellor of the Exchequer failed in his Finance Bill to make clear his intervention in the economic Debate, when my right hon. Friend said...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill (19 May 1947)

Mr Jack Diamond: If so, they were not made clear in the speech of the right hon. and gallant Gentleman. He certainly referred to a variety of matters which he did not oppose. He criticised my right hon. Friend for not having made clear in the economic Debate the point about incentives to production. It seems to me from what has been said—and also from one's natural understanding—that the Profits Tax is...
