Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: House Building (26 May 1965)

Sir Rolf Williams: Is the hon. Gentleman aware that there is no likelihood of an increase in the number of privately-owned houses until the Government get down to running their financial policies properly so that people can get mortgages?

Sittings of the House (26 May 1965)

Sir Rolf Williams: On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. May I draw your attention to a subject that I raised this morning during discussion of the Committee stage of the Murder (Abolition of Death Penalty) Bill? I think that the point is relevant now, since the Leader of the House is here; indeed, we had the Prime Minister here as well—and I suppose that he carries some responsibility inasmuch as the Leader of...

Sittings of the House (26 May 1965)

Sir Rolf Williams: I accept your advice, Mr. Speaker, and will reserve my criticism for another time. As a result of hon. Members being so exhausted this morning, especially on the Government side, we did not at first have a quorum to proceed with our business. I suggest to the Leader of the House that, since he is grossly overworking the House—

Sittings of the House (26 May 1965)

Sir Rolf Williams: What I would ask you, Mr. Speaker, is whether we on this side of the House have any redress against the strain that is being put upon the House—[Interruption.]

Orders of the Day — Schedule 9. — (Capital Gains: Administration.) (31 May 1965)

Sir Rolf Williams: When one listens to the sort of speech to which we have just had to listen one is not surprised that the Bill is so difficult to understand. The hon. and learned Gentleman tried to ride our criticism off by saying that there were only about 2,000 cases a year of £1,000 or more where chattels were concerned. Does he not know what the First Secretary is doing? The First Secretary has so lost...

Orders of the Day — Schedule 9. — (Capital Gains: Administration.) (31 May 1965)

Sir Rolf Williams: With great respect, Dr. King, the point that I am about to make about the valuation of chattels is entirely relevant. The First Secretary and the Chancellor have so lost control of the wages front that there will not be 2,000 cases a year; before long there will be millions, because the £ will be worthless and every one of the chattels will then have to be valued. I turn to paragraph 13,...

Orders of the Day — Schedule 9. — (Capital Gains: Administration.) (31 May 1965)

Sir Rolf Williams: Now I come to the second paragraph—and I hope that I shall have the attention of the Financial Secretary. Indeed, I thought that we might have had the First Secretary here to explain how all this will be related to his wages policy. The second paragraph of subsection 13 states that If any person wilfully delays or obstructs an inspector or other officer of the Board … he shall be guilty...

Committee on Social Studies (Report) (2 Jun 1965)

Sir Rolf Williams: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that, whether he intended to or not, he gave the impression to the House that he did not think that there was much chance of getting the £150,000 out of the Treasury? We on this side know that the Chancellor of the Exchequer has his limitations, but will the right hon. Gentleman, when discussing with the Treasury the sum of money to which my right hon....

Oral Answers to Questions — Economic Affairs: South-West (Economic Development) (3 Jun 1965)

Sir Rolf Williams: Will the right hon. Gentleman draw the attention of the South-West office at Bristol to the necessity for improving the carriage of freight by air in the South-West? Will he see whether it can give assistance in that respect?

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Labour: Manpower Resources (14 Jun 1965)

Sir Rolf Williams: If the Government are disturbed about this shortage of manpower why do they not have a General Election, when most of the benches opposite would be emptied and the redundancies would be available elsewhere?

Clause 69. — (Restriction for Close Companies on Deduction for Directors' Remuneration.) (16 Jun 1965)

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...

Clause 69. — (Restriction for Close Companies on Deduction for Directors' Remuneration.) (16 Jun 1965)

Sir Rolf Williams: That just shows how sleepy the hon. Member has been.

Clause 69. — (Restriction for Close Companies on Deduction for Directors' Remuneration.) (16 Jun 1965)

Sir Rolf Williams: I should think that the hon. Member ought to be rather glad that I have been here, otherwise I may have been inveigled into making a number of interruptions. But that is what will happen—a tremendous lot of work by lawyers, because in simplifying the tax and the fiscal system all that the Chancellor has done is to make all this more complicated and an absolute harvest for anyone engaged in...

New Clause. — (Restriction on Releas- Ing on Licence Those Sentenced to Life Imprisonment for Murder.) (25 Jun 1965)

Sir Rolf Williams: On a point of order, Mr. Deputy-Speaker. There are less than 40 Members present.

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Ports (Rates) (29 Jun 1965)

Sir Rolf Williams: Is it not extraordinary that the reason that this quay does not pay rates is that it is not making a profit? If, in future a private business does not make a profit, will it be relieved of rates?

Ballot for Notices of Motions: Complaint of Privilege (6 Jul 1965)

Sir Rolf Williams: Further to that point of order. In view of the fact that the Leader of the House has been completely let down by his party—[HON. MEMBERS: "No."]

Ballot for Notices of Motions: Complaint of Privilege (6 Jul 1965)

Sir Rolf Williams: Since the Leader of the House has been completely let down by his side, would I be in order in inquiring whether he intends to give up his office?

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. I wonder whether it would be possible for you, at your discretion, if it were the general will of the House, to suspend the sitting of the House for, say, 30 minutes to give the Prime Minister or the Foreign Secretary an opportunity to come to the...

Orders of the Day — Judges' Remuneration Bill (14 Jul 1965)

Sir Rolf Williams: So would we all.
