Fallen Stock Regulations ( 8 Apr 2003)

Alun Michael: .... Even more to the point, state aid rules forbid us from paying all the costs of such a scheme. The only way round that would be to arrange a scheme through a levy, as happens in Spain, or through a tax on meat, as happens in France. Neither option found favour with our farming unions. Officials have, therefore, developed proposals for a low-cost voluntary subscription scheme, which will...

Import Duties (17 Dec 1973)

Mr Peter Shore: ..., and they will rightly feel resentment that these taxes should now be imposed upon them. I have mentioned fresh fruit and vegetables and canned fruits, fish and meat, but the third category is the tax on meat. There is a tax on beef of 4–5 per cent., but that may not be noticed so much because the levies have already affected the price of beef and the free market allows our meat to go...

Queen's Speech: Debate on the Address ( 3 Nov 1971)

Mr William Hughes: ...season. Thus the higher levy and higher duties on feeding stuff for livestock result in higher meat and milk prices. Of all the forms of raising revenue open to any Government, a tax on bread and a tax on meat are the most divisive and regressive that can be devised. Yet the Government say that they are doing this in order to help our farmers—the 3·8 or 4 per cent. of the community who...

Orders of the Day — Civil Estimates, 1971–72: Class V, Vote 1, Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (22 Jun 1971)

Mr Alf Morris: ...the President of the National Federation, has accused the Ministry of … attempting to hoodwink us by putting forward this scheme under a false promise. The Minister does not like us calling it a tax on meat, but that is precisely what it is. The intention is to raise money for the Treasury and to increase the price of food to the consumer. It will not help the farmer one jot".

Orders of the Day — Ways and Means. (15 Dec 1936)

Sir Herbert Holdsworth: ...of wheat and meat."—[OFFICIAL REPORT, 10th February, 1932; col. 905; Vol. 261.] There was a sort of roundabout taxation of wheat, but here, for the first time, there is an absolutely definite tax on meat. In the Debate on the Import Duties Bill, to which I have referred, the hon. Member for South Croydon (Mr. H. G. Williams) criticised the President of the Board of Trade and the...

Orders of the Day — Cattle Industry (Emergency Provisions) Bill. (15 Mar 1935)

Sir Francis Acland: ...the structure of marketing very definitely, is probably good, but I see all around me many poultry farmers who have a tendency to say, "Look what has happened in cattle. They have got protection, a tax on meat instead of a subsidy, and why bother about marketing? The present system may be very unsatisfactory and untidy, but there is no guarantee that any other system will be better. Why...

Orders of the Day — Cattle Industry (Emergency Provisions) Bill. ( 8 Mar 1935)

Sir Lindsay Everard: ..., in his reply to us, was: In the present circumstances and having regard, in particular, to the cost of living, we do not consider that it is a time when it would be prudent or wise to put a tax on meat imported into this country. That was regarded as not being a prudent time, but the cost of living to-day is very little lower than it was then. I believe that all our troubles started from...

Orders of the Day — Norfolk Crash Feared. ( 7 Nov 1932)

Mr William Morrison: ...with the soundest traditions of this country. These are the two suggestions that I would make. I would ask the Government to take steps to restrict the importation of meat, and, if they put a tax on meat, let them remember that it will be felt less, will bring in more revenue, and do more good than a tax on beer, which is at present depriving men of employment, drying up a source of...

Orders of the Day — Ottawa Agreements Bill. (26 Oct 1932)

Sir Robert Hamilton: ...will be. But with a quota you are in a different position. "Quota," to some is rather like that blessed word "Mesopotamia" to the old lady. By saying "quota" they think they can avoid putting a tax on meat. They say that they are not putting a tax on meat but only using a quota, but what is the result going to be? It is extremely difficult to work it out. Quotas are like boomerangs. You...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Dominions Office. (16 Jun 1932)

Sir Stafford Cripps: which we are entitled to have an answer on their behalf, because we believe there is nothing more certain to disrupt the British Empire than a proposal to make the people of this country pay a tax on meat and wheat in order to subsidise or assist Dominion farmers. [Interruption.] An hon. and gallant Gentleman says "Rubbish." I ask him to put that proposal forward in the industrial areas...

Orders of the Day — Supply. (16 Jun 1932)

...but to the trade of this country, and when questions are asked on these vital matters, all we get is that there is to be no reply. How far are the Government prepared to go in putting a quota or a tax on meat? Have they considered it? If so, why should they not tell the House? Apparently they are to have a free hand to decide what they please when they go to Ottawa. What about dairy...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: Clause 7. — (Power to remove goods from Schedule 1 of 22 Geo. 5. c. 8.) ( 9 Jun 1932)

Sir Percy Harris: the Recess he will not enforce taxes on these articles by Order-in-Council. When the House is in Session it is another story. Parliament is supreme and Parliament is responsible. It may impose a tax on meat and wheat even at five o'clock in the morning, and we could not object to it on constitutional grounds. We ought, however, to have a guarantee that if we pass this Clause, the...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: Clause 6. — (Power to remove goods from Schedule I of 22 Geo. 5, c. 8.) (24 May 1932)

Colonel Harry Nathan: ...Government who were desirous that meat should be put upon the Dutiable List, and the right hon. Gentleman put on his Whips and took his followers into the Lobby for the very purpose of resisting a tax on meat, though it is true the Chancellor indicated in the Debate that he was prepared at a later date to make it possible to remove meat from the Free List. There, again, I say the act of...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 6. — (Power to remove goods from Schedule 1 of 22 Geo. 5. c. 8.) (23 May 1932)

Sir Stafford Cripps: ...a mere farce for the Parliamentary Secretary to try to get out of this argument by putting forward an excuse of that sort. Secondly, the Parliamentary Secretary says that it is not proposed to put a tax on meat or wheat. But that is precisely what can be done. It does not mean necessarily wheat and meat, but what is now proposed enables taxes to be imposed upon those things which are in...

Orders of the Day — Import Duties Act, 1932. ( 5 May 1932)

Mr Robert Bernays: ...But the political pressure is only now operating. Every Member for an agricultural constituency knows the tremendous pressure which is behind the interests in those agricultural constituencies for a tax on meat. Every day the Order Paper of this House is littered with questions directed to no other object but that of obtaining a tariff for some particular industry in a constituency at the...

Orders of the Day — Ways and Means. (27 Apr 1932)

Sir Percy Harris: ..., that we ought to consider very seriously the wisdom of extending to the Import Duties Act this long list of raw materials and foodstuffs. I see an hon. Friend opposite who, I believe, would put a tax on meat, but I am sure that he, a good constitutionalist, a great Conservative, be he Tariff Reformer, Protectionist or food taxer, would be sorry to see the safeguard provided by Parliament...

Orders of the Day — Imports Duties Bill.: First Schedule. — (Goods exempted from the General ad valorem Duty.) (23 Feb 1932) any action that we might take. I do not want anything that I say on this Amendment to be taken as a pledge that this Government will never in any circumstances be a party to the imposition of a tax on meat. I do not make any such statement. What I do say is that in present circumstances, and having, in particular, the question of the cost of living very much in our minds, we do not...
