Economic Situation (27 Jul 1961)

Sir John Barlow: I was expressing my view that the Bank Rate should be reduced as soon as possible in order to avoid our paying too much money overseas for the money which will be attracted by the especially high rate. There is another reason why the Bank Rate should be reduced as quickly as possible, and that is that undoubtedly it tends to increase the cost of production and of living. It increases all...

Economic Situation (27 Jul 1961)

Sir John Barlow: There has been plenty of time. There is a good deal of restrictive practice in labour. Industry cannot be run satisfactorily if there are such restrictive practices. Time is too short for me to go into the details, nor would it be a good thing to mention some of the details which are known. We all know that such practices exist. It is our duty, as far as we can, to remove restrictive...

Orders of the Day — Indonesia (26 Jun 1961)

Sir John Barlow: I want quickly to support what my hon. Friend the Member for Plymouth, Devonport (Miss Vickers) has said. She is a great authority on Indonesia, having frequently visited it and knowing the country very well. Unfortunately, although I know that part of the world fairly well, I have never been to Indonesia, although I know of the great trade which this country has done with Indonesia over very...

Oral Answers to Questions — Malaya, Singapore, Sarawak, North Borneo and Brunei (20 Jun 1961)

Sir John Barlow: In view of the importance of the matter, would my right hon. Friend not agree that it is unwise to push it too quickly? Would he not agree that there are great differences in language, religion and race and that while eventually this would be a good thing it would be unwise to push it too quickly?

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 14. — (Double Taxation Relief Agreements: Exemptions from Foreign Taxation to Promote Development.) (8 Jun 1961)

Sir John Barlow: Many of us who have been concerned about this matter for many years are grateful to the Government for trying to put it right. There has been considerable difficulty in overseas taxation of this sort for many years and the House of Commons is anxious that under-developed countries should be helped. In the past taxation has been very onerous on people who have been trying to do that and for...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 14. — (Double Taxation Relief Agreements: Exemptions from Foreign Taxation to Promote Development.) (8 Jun 1961)

Sir John Barlow: I hope that the Government will look into this matter carefully before we reach the next stage of the Bill. I am sure that we all want to do the right thing. We want to help the under-developed countries. We do not want to overtax any dividends coming into this country, but, at the same time, we want to do the just thing. I urge the Government to have another look at the matter and to...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 11. — (Surtax: Reliefs for Earned Income.) (7 Jun 1961)

Sir John Barlow: We have heard so much about the iniquity of this Surtax concession that I want to bring the whole question into relevance and into its right perspective. Let the Committee not forget what this Government have done in the last ten years. They have done a tremendous amount for the lower paid workers. Ten years ago the single person's allowance was £110, but now it is £140. The married man's...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 11. — (Surtax: Reliefs for Earned Income.) (7 Jun 1961)

Sir John Barlow: I was saying that the present standard rate of Income Tax is 7s. 9d. in the £ whereas ten years ago it was 9s. 6d. which shows clearly that this Government have helped, and rightly helped, the lower-paid people of our community. They helped them first and it is only right that the middle-aged executive should now have some concession.

Orders of the Day — North Atlantic Shipping Bill: Clause 1. — (Power to Make Advances for Construction of Vessel.) (30 May 1961)

Sir John Barlow: I know that the occupants of the Chair have been indulgent and have allowed the debate on the Amendment to go rather wide. I will try to be brief, because I know that you wish to draw this discussion to a close—

Orders of the Day — North Atlantic Shipping Bill: Clause 1. — (Power to Make Advances for Construction of Vessel.) (30 May 1961)

Sir John Barlow: It seems to me that the effect of the Amendment would be to prevent the building of this Cunarder. That is the object of the Opposition. A great deal has been said about the declaring of interests and I hasten to declare my minute interest in shipping. I have used ships for travelling and considerably for freight for a great many years, and in my very young days I was a skilled riveter and...

Orders of the Day — North Atlantic Shipping Bill: Clause 1. — (Power to Make Advances for Construction of Vessel.) (30 May 1961)

Sir John Barlow: On a point of order. Do I understand that the doors were locked some time ago, Sir Gordon?

Foreign Affairs (17 May 1961)

Sir John Barlow: I do not agree with that.

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Rhodesia: Constitution (11 May 1961)

Sir John Barlow: Can my right hon. Friend say when he will be able to make some announcement as a result of the discussions now going on?

Cotton Industry (Development Council) (8 May 1961)

Sir John Barlow: I support the Order. As the hon. Member for Farnworth (Mr. Thornton) said, the Shirley Institute has been a magnificent research institute, renowned the world over. Those of us who are closely connected with the cotton industry have recognised this for very many years. When I was the first deputy chairman of the Cotton Board, over twenty years ago, I was in very close touch with the Shirley...

Orders of the Day — North Atlantic Shipping Bill (1 May 1961)

Sir John Barlow: That figure of dollar earnings is most interesting. Can my hon. Friend give the net dollar profit?

Orders of the Day — North Atlantic Shipping Bill (1 May 1961)

Sir John Barlow: rose—

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Taxicabs (Design) (20 Apr 1961)

Sir John Barlow: asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if, when issuing licences, he will make it a condition that in future London taxicabs must be so constructed that passengers using the back seats do not have to remove their hats to avoid continually knocking the brim of the rear thereof against the back roof of the taxicab.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Taxicabs (Design) (20 Apr 1961)

Sir John Barlow: While I thank my hon. Friend for his reply and I quite agree that the newer types of taxis are better, does he not realise—has he not found out for himself with his great height—that the lower doors make it more difficult for people to enter, and likewise the new taxis are more difficult for the aged because there is no step?

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (19 Apr 1961)

Sir John Barlow: The hon. Member is quoting the value of shares on the Stock Exchange to make his point, but no doubt he saw the other day a pamphlet issued by the London Stock Exchange which showed that the total value of all shares and securities during the last year had been reduced slightly. They had not doubled in value as the hon. Member suggests.

National Health Service Contributions Bill and National Health Service Bill (Allocation of Time) (6 Mar 1961)

Sir John Barlow: When I came to the House this evening I had no intention of taking part in the debate, but as time has passed I have become convinced that those of us who had experience of the Parliament of 1945–50 should tell something of our experiences of those days and make a small contribution to the debate. I do not intend to follow the hon. Member for Nelson and Colne (Mr. S. Silverman), but I...
