Economic Situation (1 Mar 1966)

Orders of the Day — Companies Bill (21 Feb 1966)

Sir John Barlow: I have followed with considerable interest the speeches made by the hon. Members for Stepney (Mr. Shore) and Ashton-under-Lyne (Mr. Sheldon). I must confess that it would have been much clearer to all of us on this side of the House if we had known their credentials for speaking. One of them declared that he was not an accountant or a lawyer, but I have not the least idea with what authority...

Orders of the Day — Companies Bill (21 Feb 1966)

Sir John Barlow: After that it is quite unnecessary for me to declare any interest at all. I am glad that my interests are so well known. The hon. Members for Stepney and Ashton-under-Lyne attached great importance to the disclosure of more information in company returns and company accounts. I agree that there is a great deal to be said for showing very much more than is shown at present, both in chairmen's...

Orders of the Day — Companies Bill (21 Feb 1966)

Sir John Barlow: Not necessarily. Banks do not take debentures unless they are warranted. In any case, the same action is open to creditors. The question of the disclosure of the salaries of chairmen has been discussed. The giving of more information may be desirable, but this part of the Bill will have to be examined very carefully indeed, otherwise the information which is really required will not be...

Orders of the Day — Companies Bill (21 Feb 1966)

Sir John Barlow: I am very grateful. It would facilitate matters a great deal if it were possible to differentiate slightly between different types of industry. I gave the illustration in the textile industry of spinning, weaving, printing, making up and distribution. That can be a horizontal integration in each case. On the other hand, I am connected with a firm that is vertically integrated, and does all...

Orders of the Day — Housing (Slum Clearance Compensation) Bill: Clause 1. — (PAYMENTS TO OWNER-OCCUPIERS OF UNFIT HOUSES. 1957 c. 56.) (29 Nov 1965)

Sir John Barlow: This is a very real, human problem, and I am glad that the hon. Member for Oldham, East (Mr. Mapp) raised it in the way he did. His constituency is very near mine, and this problem is common to both. It is especially true of a large number of houses in Lancashire mill towns which were built many years ago, the conditions of which are, in many cases, shocking. Under the present laws—I do...

Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No. 2) BILL (15 Jul 1965)

Sir John Barlow: Will the right hon. Gentleman publish that document in the OFFICIAL REPORT?

Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No. 2) BILL: Clause 78. — (Dividend Increases in 1965–66.) (12 Jul 1965)

Sir John Barlow: I beg to move Amendment No. 249, Clause 78, in page 155, line 20, after "1964", to insert: Provided that any dividend paid after the beginning of December, 1964 shall be regarded as having been paid before that date if— (i) it was declared by the company in general meeting before that date; or(ii) it was declared in general meeting after that date but in accordance with a recommendation of...

Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No. 2) BILL: Clause 78. — (Dividend Increases in 1965–66.) (12 Jul 1965)

Sir John Barlow: My Amendments relate to dividends paid after 1st December, 1964, bit declared and announced before that date. A company having profits available for dividend as shown by its audited accounts may during the three years up to the beginning of December, 1964, either pay no dividend in respect of an Accounting period or pay a low dividend in relation to available profits. Such a company is...

Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No. 2) BILL: Clause 78. — (Dividend Increases in 1965–66.) (12 Jul 1965)

Sir John Barlow: In view of the Amendment in the name of the Chancellor, which largely meets my point, I beg to ask leave to withdraw the Amendment.

Clause 79. (TRANSITIONAL RELIEF FOR EXISTING COMPANIES WITH OVERSEAS TRADING INCOME.) (22 Jun 1965)

Sir John Barlow: The object of the Chancellor's Amendment is to extend the death period of overseas trading corporations by five years, and it has been suggested that this should be considered as a great concession. I do not regard it as that at all. It merely extends for a short time the period of strangulation of many of these companies. I have tabled two small Amendments which would improve the Bill...

Clause 79. (TRANSITIONAL RELIEF FOR EXISTING COMPANIES WITH OVERSEAS TRADING INCOME.) (22 Jun 1965)

Sir John Barlow: I beg to move Amendment No. 735, in page 106, line 42, to leave out "quarter" and to insert "tenth". Certain companies can obtain relief in some territories if they hold 25 per cent. of the shareholding of the company overseas. The figure of 25 per cent. is very arbitrary and it may be a very large proportion of a company. In the United States in comparable circumstances 10 per cent. has...

Clause 79. (TRANSITIONAL RELIEF FOR EXISTING COMPANIES WITH OVERSEAS TRADING INCOME.) (22 Jun 1965)

Sir John Barlow: May I add my thanks to the Financial Secretary and the Chancellor of the Exchequer in that one has represented the thoughts of the other. We are most grateful for the concession, which I am sure is very sound and will be appreciated.

Clause 79. (TRANSITIONAL RELIEF FOR EXISTING COMPANIES WITH OVERSEAS TRADING INCOME.) (22 Jun 1965)

Sir John Barlow: I beg to move, Amendment No. 736, in page 106, line 46, at the end to add: or(c) the investment in the company resident in a territory outside the United Kingdom was of a value at 6th April 1965 in excess of£1,000,000 or, if acquired since that date cost more than 11,000,000". This Amendment is almost consequential on the previous one. The Chancellor has wisely reduced the 25 per cent....

Clause 79. (TRANSITIONAL RELIEF FOR EXISTING COMPANIES WITH OVERSEAS TRADING INCOME.) (22 Jun 1965)

Sir John Barlow: The figure of£1 million is not produced any more easily than 10 per cent. If the Government accept 10 per cent. and stick to it, it is equally good to accept£1 million and stick to it.

Clause 79. (TRANSITIONAL RELIEF FOR EXISTING COMPANIES WITH OVERSEAS TRADING INCOME.) (22 Jun 1965)

Sir John Barlow: In view of what has been said on both sides, I shall be perfectly willing to leave it at that level.

Clause 60. — (Double Taxation Relief, and Overseas Trade Corporations.) (16 Jun 1965)

Sir John Barlow: I have had an interest in this subject for very many years. I remember putting down Amendments to Finance Bills about ten or eleven years ago to try to secure what was promised for O.T.C. companies in 1956 and became law in 1957. As the Committee knows, I have a personal interest in several O.T.C. companies. That gives me the advantage of speaking with a certain amount of knowledge. The...

Clause 60. — (Double Taxation Relief, and Overseas Trade Corporations.) (16 Jun 1965)

Sir John Barlow: The Chinese in Malaysia could afford to pay far more for the estates and get a far higher yield than the British shareholder, and for that reason the Malays would get control. We have seen a certain amount of that in the past.
