Sunday Observance Bill (12 Jun 1964)

Sir John Barlow: I am very glad the hon. Gentleman has said that. I should probably have made it clearer than I did, but I did not wish to take too long. The hon. Gentleman will probably agree that that was a very memorable debate for a Friday. Undoubtedly the feeling in the House was that a commission should be appointed, but nothing was done for a very long time. There was another debate at the suggestion...

Sunday Observance Bill (12 Jun 1964)

Sir John Barlow: As far as I can remember, I was not here for that debate. That would have been my general idea. It was undoubtedly the commonsense thing to do. Many people have urged me to wait for the findings of the Committee. I have considered that advice most carefully, but in view of the length of time to which I have referred, I think that it is preferable to introduce the Bill, which I now do, on this...

Sunday Observance Bill (12 Jun 1964)

Sir John Barlow: One must also consider the rapidly changing conditions in the world and the country today. When this Act was originally passed, there were few ways of moving from one parish to another other than by walking or possibly horse transport. I need not elaborate on all the tremendous changes which have taken place. It boils down to this, very largely. Do we wish to live reasonably and legally, or...

Sunday Observance Bill (12 Jun 1964)

Sir John Barlow: How does that measure up with the serious warning of the police to a particular club?

Sunday Observance Bill (12 Jun 1964)

Sir John Barlow: I should make it clear that this Bill would not allow commercialism to enter into it in the ordinary sense of the word. Payment for admission and betting would still be absolutely illegal under subsequent laws.

Sunday Observance Bill (12 Jun 1964)

Sir John Barlow: A little while ago the hon. Gentleman made great play of the fact that my Bill would allow the introduction of commercialised sport. I cannot see that in any way. I think it would be quite impossible. My Bill does one small thing; it allows people to play a game outside their own parish. There are other laws which prevent any charges being made or any betting taking place, and those laws will...

Sunday Observance Bill (12 Jun 1964)

Sir John Barlow: This warning had to be taken in a responsible way. It was made in a serious way. The chief inspector apparently knew that it would mean a cancellation of matches. They discussed the three points. The committee said that they could stop charging for admission and betting. The chief inspector said, "But you are still allowing people to play outside their parish and allowing matches in that club...

Sunday Observance Bill (12 Jun 1964)

Sir John Barlow: I should like to make it quite clear that there were objections on three counts. Two of the counts were done away with. The police inspector pointed out that the third remained and the club would still be contravening the law if it played the match on the following Sunday.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: New Clause. — (Profits on Forced Conversion of Investments.) (10 Jun 1964)

Sir John Barlow: I beg to move, That the Clause be read a Second time. It is known that finance companies deal normally in shares and stocks of all kinds, and these may be wholly or partly in all kinds of securities. When there is a take-over bid or reconstruction and the company does not voluntarily sell the securities it technically makes a paper profit. In such a case, as I say, there has been no sale...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: New Clause. — (Profits on Forced Conversion of Investments.) (10 Jun 1964)

Sir John Barlow: My hon. Friend the Financial Secretary has said that these are not necessarily forced profits but it is true to say that in almost all cases of reconstruction or take-overs they are virtually forced profits in that the taking over company usually gets the requisite percentage—75 or 90 per cent., whatever it may be—for the purpose and the smaller shareholders have to accept what is offered...

Guide Weapons Contracts (29 Apr 1964)

Sir John Barlow: Some harsh and unjustified things have been said today about the great firm of Ferranti. It is in many ways a unique firm and it has served the country very well indeed. Before discussing the details and merits of the case it may be desirable to give some of the background of this firm. I am informed that the great-great-grandfather of the present chairman came to this country from Italy by...

Guide Weapons Contracts (29 Apr 1964)

Sir John Barlow: The rest was ploughed back for the benefit of research and development. [An HON. MEMBER: "Come off it."] I am telling hon. Members the facts. The profit on turnover for the last 14 years has averaged 8·4 per cent. and for the last three years, including the profits on Bloodhound I, it has averaged 7·4 per cent. It will be realised from what my right hon. Friend said today that this is a...

Guide Weapons Contracts (29 Apr 1964)

Sir John Barlow: I am talking about it because so many people do not seem to realise it. It may be said that the Government are, in fact, a partner to the extent of over 50 per cent. only in successful ventures. The contract was not agreed and signed until October, 1960, by which time about half the material was delivered. It is repeatedly suggested in the proceedings of the Public Accounts Committee that...

Guide Weapons Contracts (29 Apr 1964)

Sir John Barlow: That may be the hon. Gentleman's opinion, but it is not mine, having been advised by contractors of various kinds in this type of business. In addition, there was no certainty of continuity; indeed, there was a likelihood that there would be no further orders for the firm for this type of business, and this would have left it with an empty shop. Moreover, it has great responsibilities in...

Guide Weapons Contracts (29 Apr 1964)

Sir John Barlow: I believe that that was an imposed or suggested profit by the Ministry as the basis on which it always works in this kind of thing, which I consider to be quite insufficient.

Oral Answers to Questions — Public Trustee Office (23 Mar 1964)

Sir John Barlow: Can my right hon. and learned Friend say how this inquiry has been carried out? Was it purely an internal departmental inquiry, or was it held by sonic other people?

Resale Prices Bill: Clause1. — (Avoidance of Conditions for Maintaining Resale Prices.) (23 Mar 1964)

Sir John Barlow: I beg to move, in page 1, line 8, to leave out from the words last inserted to "(or" in line 14 and to insert: where it appears to the Registrar of Restrictive Trading Agreements that any term or condition of a contract for the sale of goods by a supplier to a dealer, or of any agreement between a supplier and a dealer relating to such a sale, in so far as it purports to establish or provide...

Resale Prices Bill: Clause1. — (Avoidance of Conditions for Maintaining Resale Prices.) (23 Mar 1964)

Sir John Barlow: The object of this Amendment is to achieve the main purpose of the Bill, to safeguard the public from hurtful resale price agreements without imposing too great a burden on the majority of manufacturers who use resale price maintenance which they conceive to be for the long-term good of the public. As the Bill is drawn it suggests that all resale price maintenance conditions are bad until...

Resale Prices Bill (23 Mar 1964)

Sir John Barlow: I listened with great interest to the reply of the Minister of State to my Amendment. While I must confess that I was only partially satisfied, I beg to ask leave to withdraw the Amendment.

Resale Prices Bill (23 Mar 1964)

Sir John Barlow: To get it accurately, I think I said I was only partially satisfied.
