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

Mr Charles Peat: I am surprised to hear that the price of American steel in New York is lower than the price of steel in this country. I can only assume that it is still a case of dumping. I put it to the hon. Member that the cost of American steel at the present moment, delivered in New York, cannot be far away from the cost of steel in this country.

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

Mr Charles Peat: I ought not to argue this point, because I am not in a position to state the facts as I should have liked. If the hon. Member for Ipswich (Mr. Stokes) says that the price of steel in America is, in New York, lower than our cost in this country, I must accept it, but there must be some mitigating reason, because I have recently seen correspondence between tank builders in this country and...

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

Mr Charles Peat: I know the House is waiting to get on, and I do not wish to continue to argue with my hon. Friend, who is a prominent industrialist, and who is arguing on the same basis as the hon. Baronet the Member for South-West Bethnal Green (Sir P. Harris) on supply and demand. If he can get his supply, he is prepared to squeeze the supplier until he gets his raw materials at a price which bears no...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill. (26 May 1938)

Mr Charles Peat: Let us make the position clearer. Will the right hon. Gentleman tell us the capital investments of the companies to which he is assigning these profits?

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill. (26 May 1938)

Mr Charles Peat: rose —

Orders of the Day — Supply. (24 May 1938)

Mr Charles Peat: Does the hon. Member refer to home quotas or to export quotas?

Orders of the Day — Supply. (24 May 1938)

Mr Charles Peat: Will the hon. Gentleman indicate the parts of the industry to which he refers? Can he give me information about the group which has this organisation?

Orders of the Day — Supply. (24 May 1938)

Mr Charles Peat: Would the hon. Member give us further information as to how he knows for certain that steel used for welding is sold at a higher price than for riveting?

Orders of the Day — Supply. (24 May 1938)

Mr Charles Peat: There are many aspects of this Debate which I should like to cover, but time is geting late and I do not want to stop other hon. Members from speaking. Therefore, I will confine myself to the question of the iron and steel industry. The hon. Lady the Member for Jarrow (Miss Wilkinson) has just mentioned the position of the Jarrow steelworks, and inquired whether, in the first place, the steel...

Orders of the Day — Supply. (24 May 1938)

Mr Charles Peat: I may be wrong, and I do not wish to stress the point, but I understood that there was some difficulty with regard to rights of way and transportation. There was another point raised at the beginning of the Debate with regard to the bulk purchasing by the British Iron and Steel Federation of pig-iron and scrap, and the answer was given by the President of the Board of Trade that of the scrap...

Orders of the Day — Supply. (24 May 1938)

Mr Charles Peat: Perhaps the word was ill-chosen. The Import Duties Advisory Committee may have a considerable amount of influence on the policy of the iron and steel industry. They are in favour of reorganisation and everything they have done has been to help and urge forward the reorganisation of the industry, and if the hon. Member admits that they are an impartial body, then the whole of his attack on...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence.: Pig Iron. (18 May 1938)

Mr Charles Peat: Can my right hon. Friend conceive of anything which is more liable to upset the ultimate success of the rearmament programme than the damping down of blast furnaces in this country because of imports of foreign materials?

Orders of the Day — Coal Bill.: New Clause. — (Commission to be satisfied in certain respects as regards voluntary amalgamations.) ( 8 Feb 1938)

Mr Charles Peat: It strikes me that in moving this new Clause Members opposite may have omitted what seems to be rather an important feature. The hon. Member for Morpeth (Mr. R. J. Taylor) said that it was high time that the industry was informed that by improving its productive methods, machinery and so on, it could not throw men out of employment and say to the State, "You must look after these men." The...

Orders of the Day — Coal Bill.: New Clause. — (Commission to be satisfied in certain respects as regards voluntary amalgamations.) ( 8 Feb 1938)

Mr Charles Peat: I cannot allow the hon. Member to make that statement without challenging him. What I said was that efficiency in industry was more important for the workpeople of this country than anything else, because it meant that their standard of life would be as high as it could be; and that if uneconomic pits—

Orders of the Day — Coal Bill.: New Clause. — (Commission to be satisfied in certain respects as regards voluntary amalgamations.) ( 8 Feb 1938)

Mr Charles Peat: I would not like to make a statement on that now—if uneconomic pits had to be closed down, they should be a charge on the State, and not a charge on the industry.

Orders of the Day — Coal Bill.: New Clause. — (Commission to be satisfied in certain respects as regards voluntary amalgamations.) ( 8 Feb 1938)

Mr Charles Peat: Will the hon. Gentleman include coal among the things which he says have increased in price, and will he tell us where the increased price of coal has gone?

Orders of the Day — Coal Bill.: New Clause. — (Commission to be satisfied in certain respects as regards voluntary amalgamations.) ( 8 Feb 1938)

Mr Charles Peat: Am I right in understanding that when the Commission take over the leases, they do not take over any liability for dead rents, or for allowing those dead rents to be worked off, although they have received £400,000 on account of those dead rents?

Orders of the Day — Coal Bill.: New Clause. — (Commission to be satisfied in certain respects as regards voluntary amalgamations.) ( 8 Feb 1938)

Mr Charles Peat: I do not follow the right hon. Gentleman's reply to my very simple suggestion, which, as far as I could see, was that the Commission would take over the liability either to refund dead rents or allow them to be worked off against the new leases. The Commission have received a benefit, representing the liability to dead rents, and they are under an obligation to pass on the benefit so received.

Orders of the Day — Coal Bill. ( 9 Dec 1937)

Mr Charles Peat: Under Part II of the Bill very considerable power is taken to restrict the freedom of the individual; he may be forced into an amalgamation. I gather that it is not the Government's intention to use this Clause for the purpose of forcing amalgamations on possible lessees, and I want to know whether the right hon. Gentleman will consider incorporating some words to make this absolutely clear.
