Butter and Meat Rations (26 Tach 1952)

Lieut-Colonel John White: I shall not detain the House for more than a very few minutes, but I feel that a misconception might arise from what was said by the hon. Member for Sunderland, North (Mr. F. Willey). As for the hon. Member for Salford, West (Mr. Royle), I feel that he was in danger of defeating his own argument. He was complaining about the reduction of the meat ration, but he also told us that people could...

Butter and Meat Rations (26 Tach 1952)

Lieut-Colonel John White: The only point I am making is that these figures should be considered over three years and not simply over two years.

Butter and Meat Rations (26 Tach 1952)

Lieut-Colonel John White: Yes. The 1950 figure was 22 million cwt., but under his own Government that fell to 17,500,000 cwt. Under this Government it has started to go up again, in spite of the world factors which I have mentioned. In other words, our procurement of meat is better than it was.

Butter and Meat Rations (26 Tach 1952)

Lieut-Colonel John White: I have the monthly figures here but I have not studied them. The hon. Gentleman gave details for 10 months and that is what I am working on. There is a compensating factor about which I am sure the hon. Member for Salford will agree—that meat today is of better quality. I think every hon. Member will agree that during the past year he has had fewer complaints about quality than in the...

Butter and Meat Rations (26 Tach 1952)

Lieut-Colonel John White: That is only one district. These things happen from time to time for local reasons. I am speaking generally, and I think the general quality of meat is appreciably better now than it was a year ago. There is another compensating factor which, again, has not been mentioned, and it is that 2,000 tons of unrationed gammon meat come on to the market every week. That is taking place in spite of...

Orders of the Day — Agriculture (Ploughing Grants) (21 Hyd 1952)

Lieut-Colonel John White: I only want to ask my hon. Friend the Parliamentary Secretary one question, which is whether old orchard land where trees are scrubbed will qualify for the grant provided the orchards are old grass and one of the scheduled crops is to be grown on them. My reason for asking this is obviously the need for scrubbing old orchards, particularly plum orchards, which is bound to be an expensive...

National Health Service (Charges) ( 2 Gor 1952)

Lieut-Colonel John White: A large number of hon. Members opposite wish to speak and I shall be very brief. For fairly obvious reasons, I shall not follow the hon. Lady the Member for Liverpool, Exchange (Mrs. Braddock) in her arguments—[An HON. MEMBER: "You could not."] Perhaps not. I wish to correct a point which I thought was put wholly unpleasantly by the hon. Member for Lanarkshire, North (Miss Herbison) and...

National Health Service (Charges) ( 2 Gor 1952)

Lieut-Colonel John White: I can only say that the rate of percolation must be unusually slow compared with other matters which cause letters to be written, because there was no such delay about the rate of percolation of representations about the new Pensions (Increase) Bill. The rate of percolation there has been exactly 24 hours. I wanted to know whether my constituency was unique in this respect, so I asked 20 of...

Orders of the Day — Cost of Living (30 Meh 1952)

Lieut-Colonel John White: I do not propose to follow the hon. Member for East Ham, North (Mr. Daines) very far in his argument, and certainly not to deal with the last part of it, but I congratulate him on one thing: he is the first speaker on that side of the Committee to mention the cost of living in any detail. The other hon. and right hon. Gentlemen have avoided it altogether. I want to deal with the question of...

Orders of the Day — Cost of Living (30 Meh 1952)

Lieut-Colonel John White: I believe this is the first time that the two graphs of the cost-of-living index and the wages index are beginning to get a chance of smoothing out into one, and I remind hon. Members opposite that ever since 1947, when their Government introduced the new index, the index of wages has been slightly behind the cost-of-living index instead of being in front. Hon. Members may ask what are the...

Orders of the Day — Cost of Living (30 Meh 1952)

Lieut-Colonel John White: If the hon. Member will be patient a little longer, I will explain why I believe prices are coming down. Utility tea sets, which were 25s. 9d., are now 18s. 6d. The young couple who are prepared to invest a little money in their home by buying a decent carpet for the front room can now get one for £20, whereas four months ago they would have had to pay £30. Let us turn to clothing. A man's...

Orders of the Day — Cost of Living (30 Meh 1952)

Lieut-Colonel John White: I hope and believe that in the near future there may be a reduction in the price of paint, which is an important item in house building, but I do say that this Government have done more in six months to get down building costs than the other Government did in six years. There has been some controversy over this question of drink and tobacco and the index. I am not against people smoking or...

Orders of the Day — Cost of Living (30 Meh 1952)

Lieut-Colonel John White: A small minority of hon. Members opposite who have a deep admiration and affection for that country's methods. I have got the prices from an official list in Pravda, translated into British Weights and currency at the official exchange rate of 11.14 roubles to the £, and here they are. Black bread is 1s. 3d. a lb.; white bread, 2s. 5d. a lb.; butter, 24s. 5d. a lb.; meat, 12s. 2d. a lb.;...

Orders of the Day — Cost of Living (30 Meh 1952)

Lieut-Colonel John White: One would have expected that a debate on the cost of living would have been opened for the Opposition by the former Chancellor of the Exchequer, the right hon. Gentleman the Member for Leeds, South (Mr. Gaitskell), and one might have expected that it would have been wound up for the Opposition by the former Minister of Food, the right hon. Gentleman the Member for Bradford, Central (Mr....

Orders of the Day — Agriculture (12 Meh 1952)

Lieut-Colonel John White: On a point of order. Might I seek your guidance, Mr. Speaker, as to the procedure we are to adopt? We are about to debate the vital question of the home production of food during the next four years. I understand that this debate is to be interrupted at 7 o'clock for a Private Bill and, because it is Supply Day, it is not possible to add on the lost time when that Private Bill is disposed of....

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: New Clause. — (Power to Require Production of Books and Accounts.) (28 Mai 1952)

Lieut-Colonel John White: Like all hon. Members on both sides of the Committee, I am anxious to see anything done to stop tax evasion, but it is wrong to allow to go out from here unanswered the grave and very general charge made by the hon. Baronet the Member for Gravesend (Sir R. Acland) against traders in Covent Garden Market. He may not have meant it as such, but that is how it will appear in the OFFICIAL REPORT...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: New Clause. — (Power to Require Production of Books and Accounts.) (28 Mai 1952)

Lieut-Colonel John White: I am glad to have that assurance from the hon. Member, because there does not exist in Covent Garden any more evasion than in many other places. Might I make my association with Covent garden perfectly clear? I have had an experience of Covent Garden and other markets from the selling end for over 30 years. I have no interest in the market except the sending of my goods to be sold there. One...

Clause 33. — (Standard Profits for a Full Year Where Trade or Business in Existence at Beginning of Standard Period.) (22 Mai 1952)

Lieut-Colonel John White: I wish to raise one point of substance which is of importance to the agricultural community. Clause 25 clearly affects the position of marketing boards. This Clause also might well apply adversely to them, although it is not intended to do so. There is anxiety in the agricultural community on that point. I do not want to press the point now, but I ask my hon. Friend the Financial Secretary to...

Orders of the Day — Agriculture (Ploughing Grants) Bill ( 7 Mai 1952)

Lieut-Colonel John White: I hope the hon. Member for Chorley (Mr. Kenyon) will forgive me if I comment on what he said at the end of my remarks instead of at the beginning. I had not intended to intervene in this debate until I was incited to do so by the right hon. Gentleman the Member for Belper (Mr. G. Brown), perhaps not for the first time. I welcome this Bill to meet an emergency situation. The right hon....

Orders of the Day — Iron and Steel Prices Order (31 Maw 1952)

Lieut-Colonel John White: I do not propose to follow the hon. Member for Coventry, North (Mr. Edelman) because I want to get back to what we are supposed to be discussing tonight, namely, the Iron and Steel Prices Order. I would only follow the hon. Member on one point. I should like him to inquire into the "Birmingham Post" figures of comparative prices which he quoted. I have not the prices for small rods, but the...
