Orders of the Day — Sunday Cinematograph Entertainments (5 Jun 1947)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: I wish to ask exactly what it is that the Home Secretary is putting before us. I am surprised that a Resolution such as this should be moved at this time of night. My noble Friend has spoken on behalf of the Church of England. I speak as a Nonconformist, and I say quite frankly that this type of Motion does fill many Nonconformists with a considerable amount of perturbation. To put before the...

Orders of the Day — Sunday Cinematograph Entertainments (5 Jun 1947)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: What was the total of the electorate in this case?

Orders of the Day — Sunday Cinematograph Entertainments (5 Jun 1947)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: Will the Home Secretary accept from me that the electorate is something like 59,000?

Orders of the Day — New Clause. — (Exemption from tax of training expenses allowances and bounties to members of reserve and auxiliary forces.) (9 Jul 1947)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: I should like to offer back-bench congratulations to the Chancellor on this concession. As one who is interested in the territorial Army, I could say some harsh things about the way in which it has been treated by the Government since its re-initiation, but as far as the Chancellor is concerned, may I offer my congratulations and thanks to him? He is the only Minister of the Crown who so far...

Orders of the Day — New Clause. — (Charge to tax in respect of provision for retirement or other benefits to directors and employees of bodies corporate.) (9 Jul 1947)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: Before he leaves that point may I ask the hon. and learned Gentleman why he fixed that date and not a later year than 1944?

Orders of the Day — New Clause. — (Charge to tax in respect of provision for retirement or other benefits to directors and employees of bodies corporate.) (9 Jul 1947)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: Before the hon. and learned Gentleman sits down may I ask him this question? He spoke of the reclaiming where no benefit is to be derived. Can he say whether the ordinary six years' limit applies to reclaiming, or will it go back further?

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill. (18 Jul 1947)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: It would be very foolish to deny that there are one or two good things in this Bill and that the Chancellor of the Exchequer has made one or two very acceptable concessions, but I suggest that there are two general lines of criticism, to which reference has been made already. I was rather horrified to hear the Chancellor's expression that he had been able to maintain expenditure at such a...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill. (18 Jul 1947)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: If the hon. Member gets to his feet, I will give way.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill. (18 Jul 1947)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: The Chancellor was speaking of the whole of his Budget proposals and, having referred to the buoyancy of the revenue, he spoke about having been able to maintain a satisfactory level of expenditure. That is the wrong attitude. I think it was implicit in the thoughtful speech of the hon. Member for Chesterfield (Mr. Benson) that he, too, realised that it was essential drastically to cut down...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill. (18 Jul 1947)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: The hon. Member says "Hear, hear," so I am quite right in describing this as the thin edge of a new wedge. It is felt that it is this sort of tax which hits most just that type of private enterprise which the Government ought to assist. I think it will be agreed that our prosperity depends on the production of coal and upon the heavy industries. Wrapped up in that is the importation of raw...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill. (18 Jul 1947)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: What I said was that I understood that it was the current view that the Socialist Party proposed to leave four-fifths of industry to private enterprise

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill. (18 Jul 1947)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: That statement has been made quite specifically by the Lord President of the Council, and it has been repeated many times in this House and elsewhere. It is the present position in fact.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill. (18 Jul 1947)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: That is exactly what I am seeking to explore. There was a certain gentleman in Europe, as hon. Members will remember, who said he had no further territorial demands to make. What people engaged in private industry are interested in is whether, in fact, the intention of the Socialist Party and of this Government is to eliminate private enterprise. This question is directly concerned with these...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill. (18 Jul 1947)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: I shall, of course, follow your Ruling, Mr. Deputy-Speaker, and discuss the very thin edge of the wedge; but I should have thought, with very great respect, that it would be very difficult to discuss the thin edge of the wedge without revealing the fact that it was the thin edge of the wedge; and I am dealing precisely with that point, whether it is the thin end or not. Your Ruling is that it...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill. (18 Jul 1947)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: Not quite quietly.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill. (18 Jul 1947)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: I did not say anything about the City, but spoke of commercial circles.

Orders of the Day — CROWN PROCEEDINGS BILL [Lords]: New Clause. — (Application of 56 & 57 Vict, c. 61 to the Crown.) (25 Jul 1947)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: Although the Lord Advocate has dealt with this new Clause very briefly and has indicated that it is limited to Scotland, it is in fact, I submit, a general provision for all proceedings against the Crown in England and Wales as well as in Scotland. I understand that it means that proceedings against the Crown have to be brought within a period of 12 months, whereas otherwise—on the ground...

Orders of the Day — Regular Army (30 Jul 1947)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: My right hon. Friend the Member for Warwick and Leamington (Mr. Eden) indicated last Thursday that it was the desire of the Opposition to discuss today the recruitment, organisation and training of the Regular Army. It is difficult not to feel that this Debate is to some extent overshadowed by the rumours which appeared in the newspapers yesterday and today of impending large cuts in the...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 5. — (Increase of rates of Purchase Tax.) (2 Dec 1947)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: I beg to move, in page 3, line 13, at the end, to insert: or drugs or medicines manufactured or prepared.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 5. — (Increase of rates of Purchase Tax.) (2 Dec 1947)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: The purpose of this Amendment is to exclude from the increase in Purchase Tax drugs and medicines manufactured or prepared. At the moment, drugs and medicines are subject to a tax of one-sixth, which is now to become one-third, of the wholesale value of the goods. The object of this Amendment is to ensure that that increase should not apply. As you have pointed out, Major Milner, this matter...
