Schedule 1: Exempted Goods (4 Dec 1968)

Mr Derek Page: In general, I should like to support what has been said by the hon. Member for Honiton (Mr. Emery) about Amendment No. 92. These chemicals are unquestionably raw materials to the industry, particularly those chemicals which are not made in this country and which are, therefore, in general, exempt from duty. They cannot be considered as anything but raw materials. I understand that about £180...

Schedule 1: Exempted Goods (4 Dec 1968)

Mr Derek Page: That is what I was trying to point out. The concession which was made with the import surcharge is simply not possible on this occasion. However, as the concession was made for chemical exports on that occasion, we have every right to expect the Government to make an adequate concession in this case, and the only concession possible is exempting those chemicals now free from import duty. A...

Schedule 1: Exempted Goods (4 Dec 1968)

East Anglia Planning Council (Report) (29 Jan 1969)

Mr Derek Page: I am most grateful to my hon. Friend the Member for Norfolk, North (Mr. Hazell) for giving me a few of his precious minutes in the debate. There are one or two points which I am anxious to make about the Report. On the whole, I welcome the Report, which gives substance to a point which Labour Members for Norfolk have been making for the last four years—that this is a tragically...

Oral Answers to Questions — Board of Trade: Industrial Development Certificates (12 Feb 1969)

Mr Derek Page: Is my hon. Friend aware that the Report of the East Anglian Regional Council confirmed up to the hilt the miserably low earnings in Norfolk and, therefore, the vital need to get more industry there?

Oral Answers to Questions — Board of Trade: Exports (12 Feb 1969)

Mr Derek Page: Does not the fact that Britain has signed the new agreement, whereas the Common Market countries have not, give us a moral right to expect a large slice of the extra trade which will accrue from this agreement? Will my hon. Friend do everything she can to draw the attention of British exporters to the fact that these sales will not fall into their lap and that they will have to go out and...

Orders of the Day — PARLIAMENT (No. 2) BILL: Restriction of Right to Vote in the Lords (19 Feb 1969)

Mr Derek Page: I am not happy with the suggestion in the Amendment, because it would backfire in a way that would surprise its supporters. Far from introducing technicians and technologists into politics, it would introduce politics into the realms of the technologists and technicians. Why is it suggested that we want a House of Lords? It is, surely, that we require normative decisions. Where clarification...

Orders of the Day — PARLIAMENT (No. 2) BILL: Restriction of Right to Vote in the Lords (19 Feb 1969)

Mr Derek Page: I am interested to hear that the hon.

Is not he aware that some of us feel that certain hon. Members have been at a disadvantage as compared with outside bodies in getting at Ministers?
