Orders of the Day — Budget Statement: Amendment of the Law (17 Apr 1961)

Mr George Pargiter: I do not think that the effect would be quite the same. The effect of a payroll tax is to bring some additional money into the Treasury. The effect of an increase in wages would probably be to increase expenditure to some extent, which I gather is another thing which the Government are not particularly anxious to do. It will be interesting to see how the novelty works, because I cannot see...

Orders of the Day — Budget Statement: Amendment of the Law (17 Apr 1961)

Mr George Pargiter: Do I understand from the hon. Gentleman that this tax will be so selective, and that such careful surveys will be made that in particular industries, or even sections of an industry, that the Chancellor will be able to put the tax on that section, and offer a rebate to another section of the same industry? That certainly does not appear from the Budget Resolution. In fact, the precise...

National Health Service ( 8 Feb 1961)

Mr George Pargiter: Seldom have we heard a worse defence of a bad case—I think that in those words one might sum up all that one could say. First, we were treated to a policy of planning for the future with regard to hospitals, plans which we know from past experience will "go west" at the first financial crisis, because if there is a financial crisis the first thing to go will be the money for hospitals. That...

National Health Service ( 8 Feb 1961)

Mr George Pargiter: I am grateful to my hon. Friend for the information he has given which pinpoints an important part of the case I am endeavouring to make. What is the chemist to do? If he cannot take the item off the prescription, is he to say to the patient, "If you buy this over the counter it will cost you 1s. If I prescribe it, it will cost you 2s."? Is he to leave the item on the prescription and make a...

Orders of the Day — Rating and Valuation Bill (30 Nov 1960)

Mr George Pargiter: I must say at once that on any count this Bill cannot be regarded as a good Bill. Those of us who have been advocating the re-rating of industry for some time will welcome the part of the Bill dealing with it. I agree with the right hon. and learned Member for Hertfordshire, East (Sir D. Walker-Smith) that perhaps it should have been done some time ago rather than at this stage, when industry...

Orders of the Day — Rating and Valuation Bill (30 Nov 1960)

Mr George Pargiter: I am suggesting that the Minister and the party opposite should be quite honest about the matter. I am satisfied that the Clause is only in the Bill for the purpose of getting over the next General Election and that after that householders will be fully rated. I hope that I may be proved wrong in this, but that is my honest belief. If the principle on which the Bill is founded is that rating...

Orders of the Day — Rating and Valuation Bill (30 Nov 1960)

Mr George Pargiter: Provided that it is a part of the hereditaments of the farmhouse. Does the hon. Gentleman also say that the stable for the hunters is rateable?

Orders of the Day — Rating and Valuation Bill (30 Nov 1960)

Mr George Pargiter: The fact is that they are farm buildings. I am told that it would be utterly impracticable to rerate farm buildings, because no one knows what the position with regard to them is at present. That, I understand, is the reason why they cannot be rerated. I say that we should rerate agriculture so that the whole question can be looked at. I understand that the last valuation list for agriculture...

Orders of the Day — Rating and Valuation Bill (30 Nov 1960)

Mr George Pargiter: If the principle is right that the occupation of any hereditament ought to be on the basis of its rental value, what a person is willing to pay in order to occupy the premises, either for his own occupation for shelter or for purposes of profit, whatever the rental may be, it is right and proper that horticulture should be rerated. There is no difference. If, however, the effect were such...

Orders of the Day — National Insurance Bill: Clause 2. — (Higher Rates or Amounts of Contributions and Benefits Under National Insurance Act. 1946.) (22 Nov 1960)

Mr George Pargiter: Would not the right hon. Lady agree that if a person is under the age of 70 the Assistance Board assesses his need, but if he is over the age of 70 the Board does not because such a person has an automatic right and therefore there would be no cause for assessment?

Orders of the Day — National Insurance (Non-Participating Employments) ( 8 Nov 1960)

Mr George Pargiter: As Chairman of the Parliamentary Committee of the County Councils Association, I have been concerned with a good deal of work in connection with the actual way in which this machinery will work in local government. I do not think that the Minister will be able to complain that either her Department or any of the other Government Departments concerned have lacked co-operation as far as the...

Orders of the Day — National Insurance (Non-Participating Employments) ( 8 Nov 1960)

Mr George Pargiter: I am grateful for the intervention. That is the burden of my case. There are cases where the Regulations are vital and necessary for the protection of employees under certain circumstances in private employment. They are totally and absolutely unnecessary in public employment, because statutory responsibility rests on local authorities with regard to their schemes. They are audited by the...

Orders of the Day — National Insurance (Non-Participating Employments) ( 8 Nov 1960)

Mr George Pargiter: This is really nonsense and a waste of time. The burden of the case we want to make is that they are safeguarded in the statutory schemes which makes a great deal of these Regulations totally unnecessary. It will merely oblige them to engage staff to keep records which are unnecessary. Many of these records will be duplicated in the Minister's Department or other Departments. What is required...

Orders of the Day — National Insurance (Non-Participating Employments) ( 8 Nov 1960)

Mr George Pargiter: I can tell the hon. and gallant Member that the precise figures concerning contracting out have already been agreed between the Department and the local authority associations.

Orders of the Day — National Insurance (Non-Participating Employments) ( 8 Nov 1960)

Mr George Pargiter: The right hon. Lady is saying that no representations at all have been received from the local authority associations on these Regulations.

Orders of the Day — National Insurance (Non-Participating Employments) ( 8 Nov 1960)

Mr George Pargiter: Has not the right hon. Lady been made aware of the representations made to the Minister at official level and of the fact that, to say the least, these representations received very short shrift from the Department? If that is not within the Minister's knowledge and he has not said, "You cannot treat local authorities like this. Let me have a look at what the complaints are", is it not time...

Orders of the Day — National Insurance (Non-Participating Employments) ( 8 Nov 1960)

Mr George Pargiter: My advice from the associations themselves and their principal officers is that representations have been made to the Minister and that the Ministry is not prepared to make any change in the Regulations. I believe this to be a statement of fact. I do not wish to mislead the House in any respect. I say that the Minister is aware of representations that have been made and that there is no...

Housing (Rents) (26 Oct 1960)

Mr George Pargiter: Why should they be made to move out?

Housing (Rents) (26 Oct 1960)

Mr George Pargiter: The hon. and learned Gentleman misunderstood what I said. I asked why people who had brought up a family should be forced to move out of the house in which they had lived for a long time.

Oral Answers to Questions — Housing: Tenants (Three-year Leases) (25 Oct 1960)

Mr George Pargiter: asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs whether he is aware that in many cases upon the expiry of three-year leases many landlords are now issuing notices to quit without the option of renewal of the tenancy, in order to avoid the possibility of being subject to a compulsory purchase order in the event of an excessive rent being demanded; and whether...
