Orders of the Day — Weights and Measures (Packaged Goods) (28 Jul 1965)

Orders of the Day — NATIONAL INSURANCE BILL [Lords] (28 Jul 1965)

Sir Rolf Williams: All hon. Members will be grateful to the Solicitor-General for the courteous way in which he explained what lies behind this consolidation Measure.

Private Notice Question (9 Jul 1965)

Sir Rolf Williams: I think hon. Members on both sides of the House would like to have the matter ventilated today. I put this question to you with great diffidence.

Sir Rolf Williams: I do not want to detain the Committee for more than a few minutes, but I think that the result of having this Clause in the Bill will be tremendous wangles to avoid the restrictions on companies. I have no doubt myself that those parts of the Clause which seek to restrict this evasion of taxation can be got round by any skilful lawyer. Already, I have been told of one way in which this will...
