Orders of the Day — New Clause. — (Exemptions from charge to tax under the preceding Section.) ( 9 Jul 1947)

Mr Terence Donovan: May I respond to the invitation of the hon. Member for Chippenham (Mr. Eccles). The reason why directors are not included in Subsection (4) is a rather technical one. It is that directors, although they may do all their work outside the United Kingdom provided they are directors of an English company, are assessable under Schedule E although they reside and work outside this country. There...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 14. — (Premiums, etc., paid for benefit of directors and employees.) (10 Jun 1947)

Mr Terence Donovan: If the Government are going to re-consider these Clauses, may I put to them a point which I think merits consideration. It is a development of the point which was put, in the first place, by the hon. Member for Chippenham (Mr. Eccles) in relation to foreign employees of British concerns. In order to put my point, I must keep away, as far as possible, from the language of these Clauses. I...

The circumstances in which the Order just cited came to be made were shortly these: when the war ended the number of divorce cases coming forward in one year was approximately 50,000, of...

Orders of the Day — Matrimonial Causes Rules ( 6 May 1947)

Mr Terence Donovan: It is quite true that the petitioner does so swear, but he is not swearing to a question of fact. He really says, "In my opinion I have committed no act which in law amounts to collusion, connivance, or condonation." Really that opinion of his is completely worthless. That is why Section 4 of the 1937 Act, as the junior Burgess for Oxford University (Sir A. Herbert) will remember, lays the...

Orders of the Day — King's Speech: Debate on the Address (14 Nov 1946)

Mr Terence Donovan: I apologise to my hon. Friend the Member for North-East Leeds (Miss Bacon) for not following her in her most interesting and instructive speech about Russia. I wish for a few moments to come back to this country. In the Gracious Speech I notice a reference to the possible introduction of other Measures besides those specified in the Speech, if time should permit. I desire, with due...

Orders of the Day — Trade Disputes and Trade Unions Bill (13 Feb 1946)

Mr Terence Donovan: I have sat in this House now for some six months, very silent, very attentive—which I hope may be forgiven in a newcomer. During that time I have learned a great deal from hon. Members on both sides of the House and for that I am genuinely grateful. I should be prepared, I think, to go on listening longer were it not for the fact that to the most nervous Member of this Assembly—which...

Orders of the Day — Trade Disputes and Trade Unions Bill (13 Feb 1946)

Mr Terence Donovan: Yet we have the most trustworthy population in the whole world. The only thing they will not stand is gross injustice, and whether there is ever a general strike again will not depend on whether there is a Statute allowing it or prohibiting it or leaving it doubtful as to whether it is legal or illegal; it will depend on whether the endurance of our people has been strained beyond breaking...
