Schedule. — (Acts Continued.) (15 Nov 1961)

Mr Charles Hale: is defying the law because he is contemplating a breach of Section 54 of the Metropolitan Police Act of 1839—yes, 1839—which deals with scrubbing tubs in the street and the letting off of fireworks. It used to deal with prostitutes, but they have all gone. It enables the Commissioner to make an order, to protect people going to churches, and theatres, and so on, and, of course, it...

Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Navy: Party, Chatham (Board of Inquiry) (13 Dec 1961)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: The Board of Inquiry has reported that this was a private party organised by a number of officers of H.M.S. "Pembroke". It has been established that a number of Service signal rockets and other fireworks were improperly used they have since been fully paid for. The Admiralty is much concerned and greatly regrets that this incident was a cause of apprehension by any of the neighbours of...

Orders of the Day — Broadcasting (B.B.C. Licence and Agreement) (30 Jan 1962)

Mr Laurie Pavitt: ..., East (Mr. Mayhew) pointed out—its financial limitations and the large area it covers. Although this is a non-controversial subject and there have not been any verbal clashes or any great fireworks, this interim debate before the Pilkington Committee reports has been useful, for it has given us an opportunity to express to those within the B.B.C.—and I am referring not only to the...

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Purchase Tax (6 Feb 1962)

Sir Gerald Nabarro: ...cutters and lawn mowers from Purchase Tax; and what compensatory revenue benefits will derive in equivalent financial years from the imposition, also announced by him recently, of Purchase Tax on fireworks and why such Purchase Tax action was taken simultaneously for fireworks, grass cutters and lawn mowers.

Army Estimates, 1962–63: Vote a. Number of Land Forces (8 Mar 1962)

Mr Emrys Hughes: have additional expenditure on the Aldershot Tattoo. I suppose it is quite a human thing for an hon. Member to put forward a case why the Government should produce something akin to a display of fireworks in his constituency.

Orders of the Day — Indirect Taxation: 31. Amendment of the Law (9 Apr 1962)

Mr Charles Loughlin: ...of the pack—nothing else. The only thing it proposes to do is to extend Purchase Tax to kiddies' lollipops, orange juice, and confectionery. Not long ago we spent some time talking about the fireworks Order which imposed a 25 per cent. tax on a penny banger. Now the Chancellor proposes to put 15 per cent. Purchase Tax on a penny liquorice stick. Hon. Gentlemen opposite may not know...

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (12 Apr 1962)

Mr Gilbert Mitchison: ...been hunting for new things on which to put Purchase Tax. and some of their efforts are really quaint. The last couple that I had to deal with were taking tax off garden mowers and putting it on to fireworks. We had quite a lively debate about it. This is the same sort of thing. The Government go hunting round for something on which to put Purchase Tax, and I agree with the comments that...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 6. — (Purchase Tax.) (16 May 1962)

Mr Gilbert Mitchison: attend to the provision of this tax would add a bit more on. They always do. We had exactly the same point the other day when the Tory Party, not having yet suffered from by-elections, chose fireworks as a suitable item to tax. I suppose they are a bit more shy about fireworks now and they have come down at long last to soft drinks. What is the object of this? Is it in aid of the...

Orders of the Day — Science and Industry (12 Jul 1962)

Sir Austen Albu: ...last debate by the right hon. Member for Birmingham, Hall Green (Mr. Aubrey Jones). I was sorry that the right hon. Member was not here. We missed him in this debate very much. We were expecting fireworks from him. The hon. Member for Morecambe and Lonsdale (Mr. de Ferranti) did not provide the fireworks which we had expected after this publication which we have all read with such...

Oral Answers to Questions — British Army: Honest John Rockets (1 Aug 1962)

Mrs Patricia McLaughlin: Would my hon. Friend not agree that this is a much more satisfactory exercise for young people to undertake than many of those which they undertake with fireworks, which they are not prevented from doing, and which is much more dangerous?

Clause 10. — (Charge of Income Tax for 1963–64.) (15 May 1963)

Mr Gilbert Mitchison: I always wait to see, when an Amendment of this kind is before the Committee, whether it represents a serious division of opinion in the Tory Party or whether it is one of those fireworks which are let off in the course of the Finance Bill without the intention of having much effect or doing much injury. I think that, on the whole, this is in the latter category; although we wait with...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 34. — (Doubling of Annual Allowances for Industrial Buildings and for Dredging.) (21 May 1963)

Mr Anthony Crosland: ...types of commercial buildings which are just as important to the country, or indirectly to the balance of payments, as are some factory buildings. It would be hard to say that a factory producing fireworks, or sweets, which create dental decay, is more important to the country than commercial buildings earning invisible exports and thus saving the balance of payments. It seems...
