Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Cotton Purchase, Brazil (27 May 1952)

Sir Harold Sutcliffe: asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will state the position as regards the purchase of raw cotton in Brazil; and what steps he is taking to arrange for a greater export of cotton goods to that market.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Cotton Purchase, Brazil (27 May 1952)

Sir Harold Sutcliffe: Could my hon. and learned Friend say whether the opportunity has been taken to meet the business representatives from Brazil who are now visiting Europe? Further, is there any opportunity of going back to barter trading, which came to an end last year?

Oral Answers to Questions — Rade and Commerce: Coronation Souvenirs (20 May 1952)

Sir Harold Sutcliffe: In view of the present state of the textile industry, will my hon. and learned Friend and his right hon. Friend do all in their power to make sure that souvenirs such as decorations and flags made from textile materials shall be made in Lancashire mills?

Orders of the Day — Textile Industry (26 Mar 1952)

Sir Harold Sutcliffe: I am sure that the House welcomed the last remark made by the hon. Member for Ashton-under-Lyne (Mr. Rhodes). I particularly endorse it, and I think we can all agree with much that he said. Except for one contribution, in which some appalling suggestions were made to which I am not going to refer now, so fantastic were they, the debate has been in the nature of a Council of State, so often...

Orders of the Day — Textile Industry (26 Mar 1952)

Sir Harold Sutcliffe: I was saying, when the House passed to other business, that the recession in the textile industry is worldwide, and all the work that has been put in by way of modernising our mills and increasing the efficiency of our industry in recent years has been of no avail to stop it. I want to suggest to the Government one or two ways in which they can be helpful. First of all, as regards Purchase...

Orders of the Day — Textile Industry (26 Mar 1952)

Sir Harold Sutcliffe: An alteration in Purchase Tax is essential. The past scheme towards the end was holding up production, because nobody knew on what goods it would in future be placed, but the new scheme will have some unforeseen results. I think they must have been unforeseen. It will hit very severely several classes of the better quality goods which Lanachire has always been able to export and on which she...

Orders of the Day — Textile Industry (26 Mar 1952)

Sir Harold Sutcliffe: Not of the nature used in the products of which I am speaking: it is a special plastic yarn. The Government can help a great deal in these and other directions, which will probably be suggested by other hon. Members. We hope and believe that this is only a temporary recession in trade. The industry, incidentally, is much smaller than it was; there are 700,000 fewer spindles than in 1950,...

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Gift Parcels (Irish Republic) (11 Mar 1952)

Sir Harold Sutcliffe: asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what Regulations are now in force as regards food parcels and other gifts sent personally from Eire to friends in this country.

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Gift Parcels (Irish Republic) (11 Mar 1952)

Sir Harold Sutcliffe: Can my right hon. Friend give any idea of the quantity of fruit and confectionery of this nature which are confiscated, and can he say what happens to them?

Manpower and Productivity (3 Mar 1952)

Sir Harold Sutcliffe: Could the hon. Member tell the House in what year that statement was made?

Orders of the Day — Cotton Board (Amendment Order) (15 Nov 1951)

Sir Harold Sutcliffe: I agree with what the hon. Member for Oldham, West (Mr. Hale), has said about the fine workers in the industry, and about our looking after them and doing as much for them as possible. I think that is agreed on all sides of the House. However, I think it is a pity that Sir Raymond Streat's pension should have been called into question during this debate. All of us in all par- ties admire...

Orders of the Day — Cotton Board (Amendment Order) (15 Nov 1951)

Sir Harold Sutcliffe: I was not saying that the hon. Member for Nelson and Colne was not sincere. I was merely drawing attention to the fact that he was using the debate for party propaganda purposes. He said in his opening remarks that he thought he had represented a Lancashire constituency for longer than anybody else present in the House at this moment. I have been the Member for the Royton division—now the...

Orders of the Day — Cotton Board (Amendment Order) (15 Nov 1951)

Sir Harold Sutcliffe: I am sorry, but I was tempted to answer some of the things that had already been said. We had to take action, and we had to reduce the number of spindles in order to help. I will leave my hon. Friend the Parliamentary Secretary to deal with some of the other observations. Some quite unwarranted remarks were made about him by the hon. Member for Preston, South (Mr. Shackleton), but it will not...

Oral Answers to Questions — Coal: Deliveries to Merchants (23 Jul 1951)

Sir Harold Sutcliffe: Will the Minister bear in mind that hardly any of the householders in the North-West are able to lay in stocks because of the very large gap between the allocation from the collieries to the merchants and what is actually received by the merchants? In the case of one quite small merchant it was as much as 123 tons down in the 11 weeks to June.

Slaughter of Animals (Amendment) Bill: Clause 3. — (Feeding of Animals Preceding Slaughter.) (22 Jun 1951)

Sir Harold Sutcliffe: I beg to second the Motion. This Bill is concerned with the improvement in the conditions for animals awaiting slaughter. As one who first drew attention in an Adjournment debate some 2½ years ago to the slaughter of horses, which was then already taking place on a very large scale, and the methods which were employed in that slaughter, I am very pleased that my hon. Friend the Member for...

Slaughter of Animals (Amendment) Bill: Clause 3. — (Feeding of Animals Preceding Slaughter.) (22 Jun 1951)

Sir Harold Sutcliffe: I am sorry, Sir, if I went a little further than the Bill does, but what I was saying was concerned with the slaughter of animals, and I thought it was relevant to the Bill. I shall naturally not pursue that point except to say that I think that a high priority is required in that connection. Taken in conjunction with the Transit of Horses Order, 1951, which came into operation on 19th...

Slaughter of Animals (Amendment) Bill: Clause 3. — (Feeding of Animals Preceding Slaughter.) (22 Jun 1951)

Sir Harold Sutcliffe: Is it not a fact that the export of live horses for slaughter from this country has now been entirely stopped, as the figures given by the Ministry of Agriculture recently testify?

Fifth Schedule. — (Purchase Tax (Amendments of Schedule of Chargeable Goods).) (19 Jun 1951)

Sir Harold Sutcliffe: I should like to reinforce the argument put forward by my hon. Friends. The reply of the Economic Secretary on this proposal in the Budget will give great disappointment to those in the north of England, especially those who live in Lancashire and Yorkshire.

Fifth Schedule. — (Purchase Tax (Amendments of Schedule of Chargeable Goods).) (19 Jun 1951)

Sir Harold Sutcliffe: That may be so, but Scotland is not so near to obtaining television—[Hon. Members:? Yes!?]—as is the North of England. The Holmen Moss station is nearly completed and about to operate. There has been so much delay in completing this northern transmitter—it is three years since it was first shown at the British Industries Fair—whereas in the south, people have been able to purchase...
