Location of Industry. ( 8 Dec 1937)

Mr Charles Peat: I beg to second the Amendment, which has been so ably moved by my hon. Friend. I should like to challenge the hon. Member for Pontypool (Mr. Jenkins) upon two statements which he made in an attack upon two companies in the iron and steel industry. I want to be quite clear what his actual meaning was in the case of Guest, Keen and Company, because I think that the House and the country at...

Location of Industry. ( 8 Dec 1937)

Mr Charles Peat: The hon. Gentleman has modified the statement to a certain extent anyhow.

Location of Industry. ( 8 Dec 1937)

Mr Charles Peat: I accept the statement of the hon. Gentleman, but certainly I should have said that the ordinary person who listened to him in the first place would assume that he intended to suggest that the company had done a very dirty bit of work. The statements which he made will, I am sure, be investigated, and rightly so. The other statement he made is with regard to Stewarts and Lloyds, at Corby. It...

Location of Industry. ( 8 Dec 1937)

Mr Charles Peat: I am glad that that point has been cleared up. Having made the point, I should like to get on to the Amendment which I have seconded. It shows a certain identity of purpose between hon. Members on this side and hon. Members on the other side, but there is a difference in the approach. Hon. Gentlemen opposite feel that every conceivable question has been answered and we should go ahead...

Location of Industry. ( 8 Dec 1937)

Mr Charles Peat: I cannot tell the hon. Member as the information is not in my possession. On the Treforest Estate the advance has not been as great, but there has been great progress. Three factories have been completed, four tenants have been obtained, and contracts for 16 further factories have been agreed to. In regard to finance, there is the Special Areas Reconstruction Association. Hon. Members...

Location of Industry. ( 8 Dec 1937)

Mr Charles Peat: Key industries. The other things to which I have referred are key industries, such as railway termini, docks, and munition factories. It may be possible to move the latter, but the main problem will stay exactly where it was. I am not sure, when one comes to look at the matter carefully, that it is proved that we should be better off for decentralisation of our main industries in our great...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce.: Anglo-United States Trade Agreement Negotiations. ( 7 Dec 1937)

Mr Charles Peat: asked the President of the Board of Trade whether, in the negotiations for a trading agreement between the United Kingdom and the United States of America, he will consider the possibility of relieving the present burden of double taxation between the two countries?

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce.: Anglo-United States Trade Agreement Negotiations. ( 7 Dec 1937)

Mr Charles Peat: Can my right hon. Friend say why it does not fall within the scope of an agreement of that character?

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce.: Anglo-United States Trade Agreement Negotiations. ( 7 Dec 1937)

Mr Charles Peat: Does the difficulty arise because of the reluctance that the United States of America may have to enter into such an arrangement?

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce.: Steel Rods (Price). ( 7 Dec 1937)

Mr Charles Peat: Is it not the case that the British price for this steel is still below the American price and the Continental price?

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce.: Iron and Steel Industry. (16 Nov 1937)

Mr Charles Peat: Is my right hon. Friend aware that the increase in the price of steel since 1932 has been in the nature of 48 per cent., whereas the increase in the price of raw materials for use in the production of steel has been 98 per cent.?

Orders of the Day — King's Speech.: Debate on the Address. ( 2 Nov 1937)

Mr Charles Peat: I find it very difficult to produce anything in the nature of a debating speech to-night, because in listening to the Debate I have been struck by the unanimity among the Members who have taken part in it. I should like to add my word of pleasure in the fact that this most important discussion has taken place, because, in common with the hon. Member who has just sat down, I think it is the...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill. (14 Jul 1937)

Mr Charles Peat: While I welcome the concession which the Chancellor of the Ex- chequer has made on this question of discount, I feel that it still represents something in the nature of an insult to the taxpayers of this country, who have always prided themselves on the way in which they pay their tax regularly—much more than in any other country, so far as I know—and I feel that the giving of one month...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill. ( 7 Jul 1937)

Mr Charles Peat: I beg to move, "That the Clause be read a Second time." The proposed new Clause seeks to give the Government power by Order in Council to enter into arrangements with other countries for the relief of double taxation. Such arrangements have already been entered into in specific instances with regard to shipping and agencies. The object of the proposed Clause is that the Government should...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill. ( 7 Jul 1937)

Mr Charles Peat: I admit that it would be a very high figure. If you were earning 100,000 dollars you might be in the region of 60 to 70 per cent. It seems to me that the proposed new Clause is a moderate one. It does not ask the Government to take any deliberate action at present. It asks them only to continue a policy which has already been inaugurated in two specific cases, and to make that policy general....

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill. ( 7 Jul 1937)

Mr Charles Peat: Before my hon. and gallant Friend sits down, will he deal with what is, to my mind, the obvious invitation of the United States to enter into such an arrangement?

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill. ( 7 Jul 1937)

Mr Charles Peat: When I moved this Clause, I wanted to get from the Government an admission, first of all, of the importance of relief from double taxation and, secondly, an admission from them that they would take action to relieve double taxation as soon as the conditions were ripe for such action. I was disappointed that my hon. and gallant Friend never referred to the advisability of getting rid of double...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: New Clause. — (Charge of National Defence Contribution.) (30 Jun 1937)

Mr Charles Peat: I should like to ask whether there will be a differentiation between different firms carrying on the same sort of business? Will it be a question of investigating in each case as to the capacity of the firm to carry on without the senior partner? I should like that point to be cleared up, because otherwise there may he a considerable amount of differentiation and unfairness.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: New Clause. — (Charge of National Defence Contribution.) (30 Jun 1937)

Mr Charles Peat: There are one or two questions which I should like to ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer on the proposed new Schedule with reference to wear and tear allowances. The Schedule is not such a simple document as one might expect, and I would like some definite assurance that losses carried forward will include wear and tear allowances which have not been dealt with for Income Tax purposes. I...
