Orders of the Day — Home Guard. (19 Nov 1940)

Mr Charles Peat: I would like to follow the remarks of my hon. Friend the Member for Wallsall (Sir G. Schuster) and apply myself to the agricultural communities where the population is few and far between. My hon. Friend referred to the possible need for distinguishing between various parts of the country and the Home Guards therein. In the sparsely populated agricultural districts conditions are so different...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: Clause 25. — (Duty to give information.) (12 Jul 1939)

Mr Charles Peat: May I be allowed to elaborate this point, in respect to a main con- tractor who employs a number of subcontractors? He may not get all his bolts or nuts or steel from one subcontractor, but from a number of subcontractors. He may put them all into store. I gather that he is not going to segregate them into different compartments some of which will go to armaments and some to civil work. How...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: New Clause. — (Relief for voluntary contributors under the Widows', Orphans' and Old Age Contributory Pensions Acts.) ( 3 Jul 1939)

Mr Charles Peat: I do not want to delay the Committee for more than a very few moments, but I would like to put on record the fact that I personally think that a very good case has been made out by the Opposition. It is a case in principle. The arguments which have been put forward from the other side have been largely unnecessary, except that they stressed the principle involved; the first two speeches were...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: Part II. ( 3 Jul 1939)

Mr Charles Peat: I feel that my right hon. and gallant Friend has already a precedent for granting this Amendment, in that the Chancellor of the Exchequer has laid it down that in the case of redundant plant which may, after the end of the period have been a considerable loss to the manufacturer of arms, the manufacturer shall be compensated for that loss. That is a consequential loss, and is, I gather, the...

Orders of the Day — Civil Defence Bill. ( 4 Apr 1939)

Mr Charles Peat: I do not wish to delay the House, because I desire to do all I can to give this Bill a speedy passage to the Statute Book, but there are one or two small points I wish to raise now, because that may simplify matters later. Before I come to them I should like to say that I agree with the hon. Member for North Islington (Dr. Guest) about the absolute necessity of providing everybody in the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland.: Entertainments Duty (Bottleparties). (26 Jul 1938)

Mr Charles Peat: asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether his attention has been called to the fact that there are very many bottle-parties providing to the public every night elaborate and expensive entertainment in respect of which no Entertainments Duty is demanded or paid; and whether he is proposing to take any steps to recover the tax in respect of such payment and thereby remove the unfair...

Mr Charles Peat: Was the pig iron producer in question a producer of foundry pig iron?

Import Duties (Import Duties Act, 1932).: Pig Iron. ( 2 Jun 1938)

Mr Charles Peat: I would like to point out, in connection with what has been said by the hon. Member for Ipswich (Mr. Stokes), that the foundry pig iron makers are not at present affiliated to the Iron and Steel Federation, but are controlled, from the point of view of cost, by the Import Duties Advisory Committee, and their trade is recognised to be a special one, particularly in the export markets, which...

Import Duties (Import Duties Act, 1932).: Pig Iron. ( 2 Jun 1938)

Mr Charles Peat: I would ask the hon. Member for Don Valley why it is not a satisfactory body to fix prices?

Import Duties (Import Duties Act, 1932).: Pig Iron. ( 2 Jun 1938)

Mr Charles Peat: The hon. Member has slipped rather hopelessly into my hands, because they have a costings system, which is investigated by an independent accountant and on which they base all their decisions with regard to prices. A body of five or six, or four or five, or three or four men, if they are given the facts in each case, can decide.

Import Duties (Import Duties Act, 1932).: Pig Iron. ( 2 Jun 1938)

Import Duties (Import Duties Act, 1932).: Pig Iron. ( 2 Jun 1938)

Mr Charles Peat: I maintain that the only people who can supply the facts and figures are those who use and understand them, and that the" Import Duties Advisory Committee submit these facts and figures to the scrutiny of an impartial accountant. If that is not sufficient for the hon. Member for Don Valley, there is nothing in the administration of this great democracy in which we live which can possibly...

Import Duties (Import Duties Act, 1932).: Pig Iron. ( 2 Jun 1938)

Mr Charles Peat: I cannot answer that categorically, but it may very well be that the price of steel in this country is above the price of American steel delivered into this country. Probably the hon. Member knows better than I do that; the American steel industry is not using 30 per cent. of its production capacity and is seeking any avenue in which it can dump its products into any country of the world...
