Clause 1. — (Increase of Duties on Spirits, Beer, Wine, British Wine, and Tobacco.) (17 May 1965)

Sir Rolf Williams: I must confess that that is a tribute which is often paid to me, certainly by my hon. Friends. My experience is that during some of my speeches hon. Members opposite make different remarks. I see that I have already succeeded in driving the Chancellor from the Chamber. Not only has the Chancellor succeeded in getting a few extra Members into the Committee. He has brought off a greater...

Clause 1. — (Increase of Duties on Spirits, Beer, Wine, British Wine, and Tobacco.) (17 May 1965)

Sir Rolf Williams: I was afraid that you might find it necessary to draw my attention to that fact, Sir Herbert. I shall, therefore, leave the remainder of my remarks to the interesting speech which I propose to make on a later occasion, perhaps on the Third Reading. If we are to discuss these Amendments, it is important that we should have with us the Ministers responsible for guiding the economic affairs of...

Clause 1. — (Increase of Duties on Spirits, Beer, Wine, British Wine, and Tobacco.) (17 May 1965)

Sir Rolf Williams: I beg your pardon, Sir Herbert. I was trying to confine my remarks more closely to the Amendment. I say to the Government that to increase taxation does not increase production. The more that taxation is increased the more stagnation we get. This proposal is just another of the techniques which the Socialists always employ. My party believes in the alternative, that by reducing taxation we...

Oral Answers to Questions — Public Building and Works: Admiralty House (10 May 1965)

Sir Rolf Williams: Is not the real reason for the delay that the Secretary of State for Economic Affairs may find that he is without a job and that someone is installed in his place within a short time?

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Nigeria (Double Taxation Agreement) (4 May 1965)

Sir Rolf Williams: If the hon. and learned Gentleman does not succeed in negotiating new double taxation reliefs, will he allow the present situation to continue, or will he maintain the withholding tax of 40 per cent. as against the Americans' 15 per cent.?

Orders of the Day — Clause 1. — (Abolition of Death Penalty for Murder.) (28 Apr 1965)

Sir Rolf Williams: Although I am particularly interested in one Amendment, I should like to refer to the matter raised by the hon. and learned Member for Northampton (Mr. Paget). I think that our people are extremely concerned and gravely worried about the increase in the use of firearms in the pursuit of crime, and that there is a very valid reason today why this particular type of offence should, when it...

Business of the House (8 Apr 1965)

Sir Rolf Williams: Is the Leader of the House aware that yesterday morning there was chaos throughout the Palace of Westminster? There was a Committee upstairs considering a Private Member's Bill and a Committee of the whole House was considering the Murder (Abolition of the Death Penalty) Bill. In view of this confusion, which was directly the responsibility of the Leader of the House who has made a muck of...

Orders of the Day — Clause 1. — (Abolition of Death Penalty for Murder.) (7 Apr 1965)

Sir Rolf Williams: I rise to an entirely different point of order, Dr. King. It concerns the whole proceedings of the House of Commons this morning. The House is sitting in Committee on the Floor at this moment and there is also Standing Committee C sitting upstairs. I have moved in that Committee that we should meet on Monday mornings instead of Wednesday mornings because it is so inconvenient for my hon....

Orders of the Day — Clause 1. — (Abolition of Death Penalty for Murder.) (7 Apr 1965)

Railway Superannuitants: National Insurance (25 Mar 1965)

Sir Rolf Williams: On a point of order. There is a rumour going around the benches that after the right hon. Lady has sat down the Patronage Secretary will move the Closure. It has been suggested to me that you will accept the Closure, Mr. Speaker. The right hon. Lady is making very provocative statements. Surely we should be given an opportunity to answer the statements that she is making in her speech?

Orders of the Day — Murder (Abolition of Death Penalty) Bill (24 Mar 1965)

Sir Rolf Williams: May I raise a point on that, Dr. King? I notice that in the list which you so kindly put in the "No" Lobby you propose to call first Amendment, No.1 in clause 1, page 1, line 5, after "murder", insert: except a person previously convicted of murder who shall murder again"— and that Amendment No.4 in clause 1, page 1, line 5, after "murder", insert: except an already convicted murderer who,...
