Budget Proposals (15 Apr 1953)

Mr Ralph Assheton: widely welcomed and the moderation of the reduction will avoid some of the most serious repercussions for retailers who have stocks and who undoubtedly suffer hardship when a tax is reduced. The Hutton Report has not found a solution for that particular difficulty.

Orders of the Day — Budget Proposals (16 Apr 1953)

Mr Geoffrey Hirst: .... I am a little disturbed about the effects on retail trade. I hope my right hon. Friend will forgive me if I say that I think he was rather too precipitate in accepting the recommendations of the Hutton Report. I think it needed a little more study, and I feel that, after reflection and further study, not only of the recommendations but of the evidence put before the Committee, they may...

Budget Proposals (20 Apr 1953)

Mr Hugh Dalton: all, and none of them is going to switch over from Labour to Tory for this. So that has gone down the wind. Then there are all the traders who sell Purchase Taxed articles. We have all read the Hutton Report—at any rate, I expect we have. I entirely agree with their main conclusion—it is what I always said when I was at the Treasury—and I thought it hardly necessary to appoint a...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill (7 May 1953)

Mr Frederick Erroll: ...issue. I was referring to Purchase Tax as such being ineffective as a planning instrument. Furthermore, it was the rapid variations by the planners in the rate of Purchase Tax, as brought out in the Hutton Report, which constituted one of the chief criticisms by traders against Purchase Tax, and which caused them the greatest amount of loss. So all the good that was possibly done by it as...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 9. — (General Provisions as to Rates of Purchase Tax.) (10 Jun 1953)

Mr R.A. Butler: ...have moved faster and further, I must draw attention to the effect on the retail dealers' stocks of a bigger reduction than I made on this occasion. We have agreed not to discuss in this debate the Hutton Report on the effect on retail stocks, so I will refrain from developing that subject. The fact is that retailers have lost quite sufficient under this Budget. I fully realise the...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: New Clause. — (Purchase Tax Relief for Tax-Paid Stocks.) (22 Jun 1953)

Mrs Barbara Castle: ...of the Grant Committee, which was published several weeks ago and on which we are still waiting to learn his attitude. Indeed, there would have been no opportunity for this Committee to discuss the Hutton Report at all if my colleagues and I had not tabled this Clause. It is rather saddening that hon. Members opposite, who used to express such an interest in this matter, should have been...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: New Clause. — (Amendment as to Wholesale Value for Purchase Tax.) (7 Jul 1953)

Mr Douglas Jay: Since the right hon. Gentleman is so anxious for me to make a contribution, may I ask him why the Government did not think it necessary to have the comments of traders on the Hutton Report before they made up their minds about that?

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill (13 Jul 1953)

Mr Norman Cole: ...others will continue to receive every consideration and that, at least, the retailers will feel that the Government are doing what they can to give everyone a fair deal. A pertinent remark in the Hutton Report says that Purchase Tax remissions help every section of the community, except the retailer who does not gain anything. On a further point, I ask the Chancellor to give his attention...

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Purchase Tax (Retail Stocks) (28 Jul 1953)

Mr Douglas Jay: How is it that the Chancellor was able to make up his mind in quite the contrary sense to all the trade representations which he had received on the Hutton Report?

Purchase Tax (Changes) (9 Feb 1954)

Dr Horace King: ...fears of a retailers' and public buying strike which the Government has been persistently admonished to take steps to prevent; especially since its precipitate acceptance and implementation of the Hutton Report. It is because we have had as yet no indication whether this is the beginning of a new policy of granting whatever Purchase Tax concessions are to be made at the beginning of the...

Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No. 2) BILL: New Clause. — (Exemption of Certain Performances from Entertainments Duty.) (26 Jun 1956)

...about, for instance, the question of uplift, on which I am sure the Chancellor is a great authority, the question of the loss on trading stocks, and all that sort of thing. On that occasion, the Hutton Report of the Committee on Tax-paid Stocks and again, in 1953, the Grant Report of the Purchase Tax (Valuation) Committee were produced well within the year and were of great value to the...

Opposition Day: London Underground (Public-Private Partnership) (13 Nov 2000)

Bernard Jenkin: assess alternatives to the PPP. We are constantly given the refrain from a previous era that there is no alternative—an unlikely phrase from a member of the present Government. However, the Hutton report points out: The range of possibilities in theory extends from wholesale privatisation of LUL under a regulator to retention of the Underground in public ownership as an integrated...

Military Situation in Iraq (9 Sep 2003)

Mrs Alice Mahon: ...devices that were employed to get the country to go to war. Like everybody else, I await with bated breath the outcome of the Iraq survey group's report on weapons of mass destruction and the Hutton report. However, now is not the time for that. It is timely to remind hon. Members of the genuine consequences of the illegal and immoral war for the people of Iraq. It is proper to examine the...

BBC (15 Sep 2003)

Tessa Jowell: On the hon. Gentleman's first point, I can state categorically that the conclusions of the Hutton report will impinge on the charter review only where any conclusions are relevant to the process of the charter review. I have made that clear and the position has not changed. There have been no threats, nor anything else that would undermine the integrity of the process, which is crucial. Given...

Written Answers — House of Lords: Hutton Report (16 Oct 2003)

Lord Davies of Coity: asked Her Majesty's Government: What plans they have for publishing Lord Hutton's report?

Business of the House (4 Dec 2003)

Peter Hain: ...confront them and how people feel the future should go. On the Hutton inquiry, I made clear in the statement that I made on 16 October what the procedure would be. The Government commissioned the Hutton report and set up the inquiry, and we will ensure that Parliament has a proper opportunity to debate the outcome, as I said on 16 October. The Cabinet will consider it in the appropriate...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (7 Jan 2004)

Tony Blair: Of course it is, but what I am saying to the hon. Gentleman and the Conservative party is, let us wait and deal with these issues in the light of the Hutton report, which will make the specific findings on all these questions. Surely it is more important to debate those issues on the basis of what the report actually says, rather than on the basis of speculation as to what it might say.

Business of the House (8 Jan 2004)

Oliver Heald: ...? Will he pledge that future programme motions will make it clear if there is to be a late start date in Committee, and what does he intend to do about that programme motion in particular? On the Hutton report, can the Leader of the House confirm that the Prime Minister will not only make the statement to the House that we have been told about, but will lead for the Government in the...

Future of the Post Office Network (13 Jan 2004)

Oliver Heald: the beginning? Is it right that Secretaries of State can evade accountability in that way, just as the Prime Minister refuses to say whether he will open for the Government in the debate on the Hutton report? Will you defend the rights of the House in this important matter?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (14 Jan 2004)

Michael Howard: Will the Prime Minister now finally confirm that he will lead for the Government in the debate on the Hutton report?
