Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Temporary Import Charge (1 Nov 1965)

Mr Derek Page: I am most grateful to my right hon. Friend for that reply. Is he aware that many firms feel that the cost of going through the formalities for the drawback virtually outweighs the value of the drawback? Is he further aware that the demand for these chemicals, which are not made in this country, is singularly inelastic and therefore not amenable to financial control in this way? Would it not,...

National Plan (3 Nov 1965)

Mr Derek Page: Mr. Deputy Speaker, may I say what a pleasure it is to speak under your guidance for the first time. I have the highest praise for the National Plan, and in business circles have found it welcomed very widely, and from some of the most surprising quarters. However, it is only an indication, and we must be on our toes all the time in analysing its strengths and weaknesses, and strengthening...

National Plan (3 Nov 1965)

Mr Derek Page: As I understood it, the backward countries are dependent mainly on basic materials for their export. Our main difficulties have been with imports of semi-manufactured and manufactured goods, and these are the ones in respect of which quantitative controls would be most welcome. It is extremely important to analyse very carefully why we have not been as successful as we should have been in...

National Plan (3 Nov 1965)

Mr Derek Page: I agree with the hon. Gentleman. In fact, I intend to deal with that later in my speech. Average working hours in industry in 1963 were as follows: Britain 46·1 hours per week, France 45·7, West Germany 43·9 and the United States 40·2 hours. All these major competitors were working considerably fewer hours per week than we were. The figure for Japan was 46·3. That is 10 minutes a week...

Temporary Import Charge (29 Nov 1965)

Mr Derek Page: I should like to begin by refreshing a few memories, which appears to me to be necessary, and by referring to The Times of 26th November last year, when it said that unless memories are refreshed, a Conservative myth will grow up that Sir Alec Douglas-Home and Mr. Maudling left behind them a sound, well-based economy which Labour promptly ruined … This is not so. The latest crisis was...

Temporary Import Charge (29 Nov 1965)

Mr Derek Page: The answer is obvious. It has been successful in reducing the deficit. Hon. Members opposite must get past the elementary stage in economics. The surcharge has reduced the deficit by stabilising the import bill while our exports have increased. This was what the hon. Members opposite failed to do for so many years. Therefore, since the import bill was stabilised and did not go down,...

Temporary Import Charge (29 Nov 1965)

Mr Derek Page: No, I am sorry, I have given way already. One must ask what effect the surcharge has had on the balance of payments. I for one am prepared to accept the figure given by my right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer of between £150 million and £200 million. I have heard a number of estimates by eminent economists to this effect. Undoubtedly, some of the improvement in the balance...
