Income Tax Bill (14 Mar 1945)

Sir Alfred Beit: Does what my right hon. Friend is saying apply to agricultural buildings?

Income Tax Bill (14 Mar 1945)

Sir Alfred Beit: That is what the hon. Member said.

Income Tax Bill (14 Mar 1945)

Sir Alfred Beit: I am not allowed by the rules of Order and by Mr. Deputy-Speaker to continue too far into this subject, but perhaps I might be allowed to bring this digression to an end, with your permission, Mr. Deputy-Speaker, by saying that the position of the industrial workers, whether here or in Russia, will be very much the same, in respect of the example quoted by the hon. Member, who has pointed...

Income Tax Bill (14 Mar 1945)

Sir Alfred Beit: Is there any particular reason why the spread should not be the same for the vendor as for the purchaser?

Orders of the Day — Finance Corporations ( 2 Mar 1945)

Sir Alfred Beit: When the hon. Member for Ebbw Vale (Mr. Bevan) rose to speak, I felt sure we were going to hear some resounding complaints on past events and, as the hon. Member comes from South Wales, particular references to the Bankers Industrial Development Corporation. We have heard a great deal about the latter's alleged restrictionist policy, and an interruption was made which, by the rules of...

Orders of the Day — Finance Corporations ( 2 Mar 1945)

Sir Alfred Beit: I quite appreciate that, but I think that it still remains that that is the policy which has now been accepted and upon which all present legislation is being based. I think it will be agreed that the pedigree of these Corporations is impeccable. They arise from recommendations of the Macmillan Committee on Banking, of which the present Minister of Labour was a member. That Committee...

Orders of the Day — Finance Corporations ( 2 Mar 1945)

Sir Alfred Beit: I am coming to that point at a later stage of my speech when I discuss the amount of capital available for investment, which is the limiting factor, as the hon. Member will realise. I am assuming—and this is where I part company with him—that what is laid down as the policy, as outlined in the White Paper on Full Employment, is going to be translated into fact. The hon. Member is...

Orders of the Day — Finance Corporations ( 2 Mar 1945)

Sir Alfred Beit: The hon. Member was showing a strong tendency to sit on the one horn. I was waiting anxiously to hear the proposed defence which in due course was adumbrated. We heard a great deal about nepotism and corruption and things of that sort: I find that nepotism and corruption can, in certain circumstances, take place in any quarter of society and I do not say that this proposal is going to provide...

Orders of the Day — Finance Corporations ( 2 Mar 1945)

Sir Alfred Beit: We had this example given this morning in the Debate. We have had the examples of small enterprises. I can recall very clearly the operations of the capital market between the two wars and it is entirely untrue to say that there was no freeplay in operations. Some were disastrous, admittedly. As the Macmillan Report pointed out, of the amount of money raised on the capital market in 1928, 45...

Orders of the Day — Finance Corporations ( 2 Mar 1945)

Sir Alfred Beit: I am rather projecting myself into a further stage. Of course, in the immediate post-war world, the men and materials will be the dominating question, but I am rather assuming at the moment that they can be made available. I am taking that as my thesis, and I am trying to show that, on the position as we see it now, it would hardly appear that there will be enough money left after the other...

Orders of the Day — Finance Corporations ( 2 Mar 1945)

Sir Alfred Beit: May I ask what evidence the hon. Member has that it is not to touch those particular industries to which he refers?

Oral Answers to Questions — Yugoslavia: European Countries (Russian Representation) (14 Feb 1945)

Sir Alfred Beit: asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether, in view of the fact that the Soviet Government does not maintain diplomatic representatives in Finland, Bulgaria, Roumania and Hungary, he has any information how Russia is represented in them.

Oral Answers to Questions — Yugoslavia: European Countries (Russian Representation) (14 Feb 1945)

Sir Alfred Beit: Did not my right hon. Friend inform me last week that this country had political representatives, apart from the Allied Control Commission, in these countries? I want to ascertain whether any similar representation is maintained by Russia.

Oral Answers to Questions — Yugoslavia: European Countries (Russian Representation) (14 Feb 1945)

Sir Alfred Beit: Does that mean that the Control Commission has some sort of political and diplomatic status?

Oral Answers to Questions — Housing: Repairs (Licensing Limit) (14 Feb 1945)

Sir Alfred Beit: Would not the universal extension of the limit mean the attraction of more building labour from London?

Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Navy: Pacific Fleet Operations (Information) (14 Feb 1945)

Sir Alfred Beit: asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he has arranged for certain naval officers to proceed to the U.S.A. and Australia to supply news of British Fleet operations in the Pacific; how many such officers are involved; and how many of their number have qualifications as journalists.

Oral Answers to Questions — European Countries (Diplomatic Representation) ( 7 Feb 1945)

Sir Alfred Beit: asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what are the nature and duties of the British political representatives in Finland, Bulgaria and Rumania; whether His Majesty's Government contemplate entering into diplomatic relations with those countries; and whether the Soviet Government have diplomatic representations in them.

Oral Answers to Questions — European Countries (Diplomatic Representation) ( 7 Feb 1945)

Sir Alfred Beit: Can my right hon. Friend say to whom these political representatives are responsible? Further, in view of the fact that both Russia and ourselves are represented diplomatically in Italy, which is an ex-enemy country, why should we not have similar representation in other ex-enemy countries?

Oral Answers to Questions — European Countries (Diplomatic Representation) ( 7 Feb 1945)

Sir Alfred Beit: Has Russia also political representatives in these countries? Were not these other representatives appointed by the Allied Military Commission?

Class I: Civil Aviation (26 Jan 1945)

Sir Alfred Beit: I hope the Committee will permit me to try to bring the Debate back on to the political level, and to introduce important national and international questions, some of which have been settled while others await settlement. I regret that I was not in my place when the Deputy Prime Minister made his statement, which I welcome with gratitude. One can reflect with some happiness on the way that...
