Private Monopolies (14 Feb 1962)

Sir John Barlow: The hon. Member for Bilston (Mr. R. Edwards) will forgive me if I do not take up the points he made, but there is very little time at our disposal and several hon. Members, on both sides of the House, wish to make valuable contributions. I have much which I could, and should like to, say, but I hope that the hon. Member who follows me will confine himself, if possible, to about the same...

Orders of the Day — Cotton Industry (23 Jan 1962)

Sir John Barlow: I shall speak for only a minute or two, as the time is so short. When the President of the Board of Trade visited Lancashire early in December, and discussed local cotton problems with all sections of the community, he left them bitterly disappointed. I had the pleasure of raising the question of cotton in a debate just before the Christmas Recess. The answer by the President of the Board of...

Cotton Textile Industry (21 Dec 1961)

Sir John Barlow: I am most grateful to you, Mr. Speaker, for giving us an opportunity to debate the question of the Lancashire cotton textile industry this afternoon. I very much welcome the presence of the President of the Board of Trade, who I gather is likely to answer the debate, because he has acquired a greater knowledge of this industry than any other President of the Board of Trade since the war. Not...

Cotton Textile Industry (21 Dec 1961)

Sir John Barlow: I have not got that figure, but I well believe it. As the hon. Member said that was some little time ago, I should think that it is greater than that now. I have tried to give an outline of the present state of the industry. The industry is prepared to compete on equal terms with Western nations which have Western salaries and Western standards of living, provided that they do not enjoy...

Orders of the Day — Incomes and Productivity (18 Dec 1961)

Sir John Barlow: The hon. Member said that 546 companies had increased their dividend by 10 per cent. Can he say how many have not done so?

Orders of the Day — Incomes and Productivity (18 Dec 1961)

Sir John Barlow: I do not propose to follow very far the hon. Member for Burnley (Mr. D. Jones). Obviously I do not agree with many of the things he said. I disagree with him when he says that the distribution of national wealth since the end of the war has been grossly unjust to certain sections of the Community. The hon. Member for Cardiff, South-East (Mr. Callaghan) seemed to lay great stress on the use...

Orders of the Day — Incomes and Productivity (18 Dec 1961)

Sir John Barlow: I am all for ploughing back profits and modernising plant and machinery in every way. That is of vital importance.

Orders of the Day — Economic Situation (27 Jul 1961)

Sir John Barlow: I do not propose to follow the hon. Member for Birmingham, Small Heath (Mr. Denis Howell) very far. We have one thing in common, neither of us is an economist, and I think that the whole House would agree about that. The hon. Member blamed the management of industry in this country for not managing. That is a very easy statement to make and I regret that he did not offer any solution. It...
