Oral Answers to Questions — Board of Trade: Industrial Development Certificates (King's Lynn) (17 Feb 1966)

Mr Derek Page: Will my hon. Friend bear in mind that although there has been a very welcome increase, I understand, there was a lack of correlation between housing and industry a couple of years ago with the result that about 100 houses are now standing idle? Will he bear that in mind when considering future applications for I.D.C.s?

Mr Derek Page: Will my hon. Friend bear in mind the scandalous variations in earnings between different regions and the fact that earnings in parts of East Anglia just about equal National Assistance in the development areas? Will he give an assurance that the lines of division in the White Paper on investment allowances will not be the last word when legislation is introduced?

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Aviation: Private Pilots (Information Circulars) (16 Feb 1966)

Mr Derek Page: In view of the value of these circulars, particularly to pilots who are not regular members of clubs and who do not put in a great number of flying hours, would it not be advisable to issue a reminder with each re-issue of a licence?

National Health Service Bill (3 Feb 1966)

Mr Derek Page: I am grateful for the opportunity to speak in this debate and I will not impose on the House for more than a few moments. I add my congratulations to my right hon. Friend for a very worthy Bill and for the dignified way in which he has comported himself over the last 12 months. He is greatly to be congratulated. One matter which has been raised by certain practitioners in my constituency was...

Farm Accidents (25 Jan 1966)

Mr Derek Page: I wish to begin by paying tribute to my hon. Friend the Member for Norfolk, North (Mr. Hazell) for initiating this important debate, particularly since the National Union of Agricultural Workers has for many years been drawing attention to the problems we are discussing. At the same time, however, I must regret the total absence of interest in this subject by hon. Gentlemen opposite. Not one...

Oral Answers to Questions — Land and Natural Resources: Wash Barrage (20 Dec 1965)

Oral Answers to Questions — Land and Natural Resources: Wash Barrage (20 Dec 1965)

Mr Derek Page: I am most grateful to my right hon. Friend for that reply. Will he bear in mind the tremendous impact that any such scheme would have on the economy of the whole of Norfolk, which badly needs extra industry? Will he also bear in mind that this body is the only one that is capable of taking into account all the economic circumstances?

Oral Answers to Questions — Board of Trade: North-East (2 Dec 1965)

Mr Derek Page: Is my hon. Friend aware that under the Local Employment Acts as at present drafted, the flow of I.D.Cs. to the North-East draws work away, not only from areas that could well afford it, but from other areas, such as East Anglia and Dorset, which due to their low incomes need factories?

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...

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...
