Orders of the Day — European Economic Community (8 Nov 1962)

Sir John Barlow: I begin my speech in the same way as the hon. Member for Gloucester (Mr. Diamond), who said of the previous speaker that some things in his speech were more acceptable than others. I cannot agree with everything that the hon. Member said by a long shot, but I do agree with him, and I think we all agree, that we owe a great debt of gratitude to my right hon. Friend the Lord Privy Seal for...

Orders of the Day — European Economic Community (8 Nov 1962)

Sir John Barlow: The hon. Gentleman had better read HANSARD. He will see that he is wrong. In answer to the hon. Member for Bolton, West (Mr. Holt), I should probably hear about the trouble, but if we went in we should not have the power to act to anything like the extent that we have power to act now. That would be the very significant difference. This country, lacking the discipline that it should have,...

Malaysia (Federation) (1 Aug 1962)

Sir John Barlow: I thank my right hon. Friend for his statement. While we all agree that this new idea of a greater Malaysia is a good thing, does he realise that the people of North Borneo and Sarawak are not universally in favour of this new proposal? Will my right hon. Friend take great care to ensure that there are proper safeguards for these two peoples, who are not so far advanced as those of Singapore...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Cotton Yarn (26 Jul 1962)

Sir John Barlow: asked the President of the Board of Trade if, in view of the fact that United Kingdom cotton yarn attracts a duty of 33⅓ per cent. on entry into Eire, he will take stops to impose a duty on cotton yarn entering the United Kingdom from Eire.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Cotton Yarn (26 Jul 1962)

Sir John Barlow: Is my right hon. Friend aware that that answer is very unsatisfactory in that there is great injustice when those goods come here free whereas we have to pay a duty of 33⅓ per cent.? Can he give any evidence that Irish goods coming into this country are subsidised?

Orders of the Day — Uganda Independence Bill (18 Jul 1962)

Sir John Barlow: I do not regard that as entirely satisfactory. We are here acting as a legislative body. What does this promise mean? As I understand it, it means that this matter will be put before the Colonial Secretary, and there the matter may end. He may say "Yes" or "No," and it will not be referred back to us or to any other authority at all. That is not quite what I had hoped. I appreciate that...

Orders of the Day — Bolton Water Order (18 Jul 1962)

Sir John Barlow: I, too, congratulate my hon. Friend the Joint Parliamentary Secretary on his promotion to the Front Bench, the more so since this is a subject with which he is familiar and about which he has deep knowledge. As the hon. Member for Rossendale (Mr. Greenwood) said, we are indeed in honourable collusion tonight. Hon. Members who represent constituencies in this area are very much concerned...

PIPE-LINES BILL [Lords] (ALLOCATION OF TIME) (9 Jul 1962)

Sir John Barlow: When I entered the House about two hours ago I had not the slightest idea that I should speak. However, it was so hot outside that I wondered where the coolest place in the House was. I decided, despite the subject of this debate, that I would take a chance, and listen to it. Having heard a great many similar debates previously, I must confess that I have not heard any new arguments put...

PIPE-LINES BILL [Lords] (ALLOCATION OF TIME) (9 Jul 1962)

Sir John Barlow: The hon. Member was not here in 1950, nor was I, though I was a Member from 1945 to 1950, and had very considerable experience of Committee work during those years. If any Opposition—or, in certain cases, the Government, though I do not think that to be the case here—create the necessity for these timetables, our methods of procedure in Committee will be criticised outside. We have to...

Finance Bill (3 Jul 1962)

Sir John Barlow: I beg to move, That the Clause be read a Second time. I move this new Clause in the absence of my hon. Friend the Member for Dover (Mr. Arbuthnot), owing to his being a Church Estates Commissioner. It seeks to relieve hardship which undoubtedly can exist in a certain combination of circumstances. Under Section 55 of the Finance Act, 1940, and Section 22 of the Finance Act, 1960, for...

Finance Bill (3 Jul 1962)

Sir John Barlow: In view of the assurance give by my hon. Friend, I beg to ask leave to withdraw the Motion.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 9. — (Charge to Income Tax and Profits Tax.) (2 Jul 1962)

Sir John Barlow: The hon. Member seems to assume in all these cases that a profit is made, but we have heard of a great slump on the Stock Exchange about a month ago. Presumably some very large losses are made. Does he suggest that it is all one-sided?

Orders of the Day — Cotton Industry (28 Jun 1962)

Sir John Barlow: I will try to be brief, as I know that there are so many knowledgeable hon. Members who wish to take part in the debate. First, I should like to welcome the Report of the Estimates Committee. It is an admirable Report containing an enormous amount of useful information and statistics. The Committee was fortunate in getting such valuable and knowledgeable witnesses. The history of this...

Orders of the Day — Cotton Industry (28 Jun 1962)

Sir John Barlow: I do not propose to follow that, if the hon. Gentleman will forgive me for not doing so. The diminution of the industry and the import of cheap foreign cloth has assumed serious proportions. In 1953, about 36 million yards of grey cloth were imported into this country. By 1959, that figure had increased to 371 million yards, and it must be remembered that from 1956 onwards, when the...

Orders of the Day — Cotton Industry (28 Jun 1962)

Sir John Barlow: I am glad that my hon. Friend has put me right about that. These figures were given to me, and I had every reason for believing them to be correct. I was referring to the Common Market countries which take a small proportion of this Eastern cloth. I understand that many manufacturers in those countries have stated quite definitely that they have no intention of sacrificing their home textile...

Cotton Textile Industry (6 Jun 1962)

Sir John Barlow: TO ask the President of the Board of Trade, whether, in view of the state of the cotton textile industry and the representations which have recently been made to him, he will give an answer to the proposals submitted to him by the deputation led by the hon. Member for Middleton; and if he will make a statement.

Cotton Textile Industry (6 Jun 1962)

Sir John Barlow: Is my right hon. Friend aware that, although we appreciate his long-delayed statement, Lancashire will be very disappointed with it? A most important redundancy scheme was promulgated in 1959, and we regard that as being entirely let down and changed. Will my right hon. Friend do his best to arrange for a debate on this important subject as quickly as possible? Is he satisfied that he is...

Orders of the Day — WAYS AND MEANS [21st May]: Clause 10. — (Chargeable Assets.) (22 May 1962)

Sir John Barlow: I beg to move, in page 12, line 41, at end to insert: Provided that no property of any description shall be chargeable assets if it is used or to be used in its trade by a body of persons carrying on a trade which consists of the working of mineral deposits of a wasting nature outside the United Kingdom.

Orders of the Day — WAYS AND MEANS [21st May]: Clause 10. — (Chargeable Assets.) (22 May 1962)

Sir John Barlow: That would be convenient, Mr. Thomas. Clause 10 deals with chargeable assets. It seems to me that the Chancellor, quite rightly, has cast his net very widely, but presumably he will recognise the justice and logic of the suggestion that he has cast it a little too widely. The Clause as drafted strikes at the assets of an overseas mining company merely because they have to do with land....

Orders of the Day — WAYS AND MEANS [21st May]: Clause 10. — (Chargeable Assets.) (22 May 1962)

Sir John Barlow: In view of the Attorney-General's explanation, I beg to ask leave to withdraw the Amendment.
