Clause 60. — (Double Taxation Relief, and Overseas Trade Corporations.) (16 Jun 1965)

Sir John Barlow: It would not be to the advantage of British shareholders to emigrate, or for the company to emigrate, but it would be to the advantage of local capital in Malaysia to buy these estates at cut-throat prices. I know of certain cases of mining companies in which more than 50 per cent. of the shareholding is already held abroad, and great pressure would be brought to bear if and when O.T.C....

Clause 60. — (Double Taxation Relief, and Overseas Trade Corporations.) (16 Jun 1965)

Sir John Barlow: I am very interested to hear that. This country owes a great debt to Malaysia and the rubber industry. In the six years immediately after the war, when American dollars were so difficult to secure, Malaysian rubber produced about £80 million worth of American dollars annually. That was more than all the. exports from this country to the United States at that time. Owing to its prosperity in...

Clause 60. — (Double Taxation Relief, and Overseas Trade Corporations.) (16 Jun 1965)

Sir John Barlow: Who advised them?

Clause 60. — (Double Taxation Relief, and Overseas Trade Corporations.) (16 Jun 1965)

Sir John Barlow: I can assure the hon. and learned Gentleman from very practical experience that in the past there have been a considerable number of takeover bidders—some of them successful and others not—when the prices of shares have been low. There were times five or six years ago when the assets of a London registered company were as much as the value of the shares, which placed the value of the...

Schedule: Clause 44. — (Tax on Distributions etc. Received by United Kingdom Company.) (3 Jun 1965)

Sir John Barlow: I wish to mention Amendment No. 635 very briefly. It is very similar to the Amendment moved by my hon. Friend the Member for Wanstead and Woodford (Mr. Patrick Jenkin). As the Clause stands, if a subsidiary company receives part of its income in the form of franked investment from other United Kingdom companies and wishes to pay those dividends to its parent company, it is impossible to do...

Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No. 2) BILL (10 May 1965)

Sir John Barlow: I am glad to follow the hon. Member for Birkenhead (Mr. Dell), because he was speaking on very interesting lines about overseas investments and their effect on exports, and how the two things are correlated. I agree with a great deal, although not all, of what the hon. Member said. He thought that foreign countries which had fewer overseas investments than we have had ample access to raw...

Bill Presented: Sunday Observance (15 Feb 1965)

Sir John Barlow: Would the hon. Gentleman restrict the tourist trade in Scotland on Sundays?

Oral Answers to Questions — Ceylon: British Companies (Transfer of Profits) (9 Feb 1965)

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Capital Gains and Corporation Taxes (19 Jan 1965)

Sir John Barlow: asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer to what extent overseas trade corporations and their shareholders are affected by his recent announcement on the proposed corporation tax.

Orders of the Day — Schedule 1. — (Exempted Goods.) (2 Dec 1964)

Sir John Barlow: Is my hon. Friend right in giving those figures in millions of tons? I think that the total usage of rubber in the world is about 4 million tons, so I cannot believe that his figures are correct.

Orders of the Day — Schedule 1. — (Exempted Goods.) (2 Dec 1964)

Sir John Barlow: Hear, hear.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill (2 Dec 1964)

Sir John Barlow: I beg to move Amendment 116, in page 14, line 7, at end insert: Naphthol AS-G within 29.25 (C).

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill (2 Dec 1964)

Sir John Barlow: This is really very closely allied to the last Amendment, so I rise with some measure of encouragement. This Amendment refers to Naphthol AS-G, which is very closely linked to rosin. It is used exclusively by textile printers for a particular type of cloth known as Batik sarongs for the West Coast of Africa. The Minister will be familiar with some of the problems of the Lancashire textile...

Iron and Steel Industry (9 Nov 1964)

Sir John Barlow: Face the Chair!

Oral Answers to Questions — Industry, Trade and Regional Development: Textile Industry (23 Jul 1964)

Sir John Barlow: Does my right hon. Friend realise that we are the only great industrial textile country which does not reasonably protect its own people? Does he realise, for example, that America allows only 5½ per cent. imports and Germany 7½ per cent., whereas about 35 per cent. of home consumption is allowed in this country?

Sunday Observance Bill (12 Jun 1964)

Sir John Barlow: I beg to move, That the Bill be now read a Second time. The variety of Private Members' Bills which can come before this House on a Friday is remarkable. Today we have an excellent illustration of the opportunity to private Members to bring forward very useful Bills. My object today is to introduce a small Bill which is essentially non-political and which I hope will introduce a small...

Sunday Observance Bill (12 Jun 1964)

Sir John Barlow: I think it would be an individual fine of 3s. 4d. It would appear so from the Act which I have studied. The object of that Act was to encourage church attendance and the practice of archery. I have not consulted the Minister of Defence about whether he wants to continue this provision or not. Also, the object was to prevent drunkenness, rowdyism and hooligans making a nuisance of themselves...

Sunday Observance Bill (12 Jun 1964)

Sir John Barlow: I suggest that there are some changes in some ways.

Sunday Observance Bill (12 Jun 1964)

Sir John Barlow: And scooters. I have a rather interesting letter from the historian, Sir Arthur Bryant, who tells me that the Act of 1625 was a Laudian attempt to impose discipline on the rather chaotic Church of the early seventeenth century—when both the Puritan ferment and rural paganism were the Episcopal reformers' target. He also goes on to quote from the famous Shakerley Papers in Cheshire, which...
