House of Commons Rebuilding (28 Oct 1943)

Sir Alfred Beit: Before the Debate goes any further I would like to express my disapproval of the suggestion of the hon. Member for West Walthamstow (Mr. McEntee) and certain other hon. Members that when we come to rebuilding the House of Commons special accommodation should be made available for other purposes above it. If that were done, we would have no daylight whatever in the new Chamber, and having sat,...

House of Commons Rebuilding (28 Oct 1943)

Sir Alfred Beit: Does my right hon. and gallant Friend consider the architecture of the building a smaller issue? That is one of the things that I specifically asked, and the Prime Minister has made it clear that it is one of the things on which his mind is made up.

Orders of the Day — Parliament (Elections and Meeting) Bill (26 Oct 1943)

Sir Alfred Beit: Further to that point of Order. Is not this Clause and most of the Bill based on the Representation of the People Act, so that no Amendments could be introduced which would conflict with that Act?

Orders of the Day — R.a.M.C. Officer's Widow (Pension) (21 Oct 1943)

Sir Alfred Beit: What strikes me in listening to this case, with which I had not been previously acquainted, is that the Financial Secretary has not answered a most important point. He has put forward a good Departmental case, but he has not answered the point raised by my hon. Friend the Member for Oxford (Mr. Hogg), who stated that in a letter to him by the Secretary of State it was said that the latter had...

Orders of the Day — Wage-Earners Income Tax Bill: Clause 1. — (Basis of charge and method of collection of income tax on certain emoluments.) (20 Oct 1943)

Sir Alfred Beit: The Committee has listened with care and attention to the statement made by the right hon Gentleman the Chancellor of the Exchequer, and the admirable impression which he created in introducing the Bill and in making the original concession has been, I am sure, repeated in the minds of his hearers to-day when they realised the way in which he has approached this very difficult subject. I am...

Orders of the Day — Wage-Earners Income Tax Bill: Clause 1. — (Basis of charge and method of collection of income tax on certain emoluments.) (20 Oct 1943)

Sir Alfred Beit: May I make another comment about the tax tables, arising out of something which I said on the Second Reading? I then advocated a husband and wife being separately assessed. I am not surprised that I did not get a reply from the Financial Secretary on that occasion, as a great and controversial reform could not be expected on such a limited Bill as this. The reason I brought it up was because...

Orders of the Day — Wage-Earners' Income Tax Bill (14 Oct 1943)

Sir Alfred Beit: Does the right hon. Gentleman recognise that the proposal would mean that in one year such persons would have to pay more than a full year's Income Tax?

Orders of the Day — Wage-Earners' Income Tax Bill (14 Oct 1943)

Sir Alfred Beit: The Chancellor of the Exchequer must be very gratified by the assent which this Bill has gained in all quarters of the House, and, although I have a few comments to offer, my fundamental reaction is one of gratitude and praise. The outstanding feature of the proposal is the principle described in the White Paper as a cumulative tax which has solved what formerly seemed an intractable problem....

Orders of the Day — Wage-Earners' Income Tax Bill (14 Oct 1943)

Sir Alfred Beit: I was raising the point, Mr. Speaker, as a whole paragraph in the White Paper is devoted to the subject of married women in employment, and it does have a very strong bearing upon what I am saying, especially when one considers the fact that on £165 each individual has to pay only 6s. 6d. instead of the 10s. allowed to one party of the marriage. With respect, I suggest that my point has some...

Orders of the Day — Wage-Earners' Income Tax Bill (14 Oct 1943)

Sir Alfred Beit: I realise that I am going a little wide, but the reason I mention it is because the new assessment that we are discussing is an additional assessment, and I thought you, Sir, would probably not object if I made a certain reference to existing assessments, especially in cases such as the one that I quoted of a man who may have interests in different parts of the country and, owing to the...

Orders of the Day — Wage-Earners' Income Tax Bill (14 Oct 1943)

Sir Alfred Beit: I will not pursue the matter further, beyond saying that I hoped there would be some simplification or rationalalisation, and I am a little disappointed that the opportunity has not been taken, but I shall be very happy to know if there is any prospect at all of some investigation taking place into this hundred-year-old system, with a view to bringing it a little more up-to-date, of the...

Orders of the Day — Wage-Earners' Income Tax Bill (14 Oct 1943)
