Canlyniadau 1–20 o 1048 ar gyfer speaker:Sir Arthur Salter

Cotton Industry (30 Gor 1953)

Sir Arthur Salter: I have very little time but perhaps enough, for a reason which I will mention in a moment. This has been a rather unusual and distinctive debate. It has been conducted before a select audience, though perhaps that is not so unusual. It has also had a very intimate character. The right hon. Member for Huyton (Mr. H. Wilson), who opened the debate, preceded my right hon. Friend in his present...

Cotton Industry (30 Gor 1953)

Sir Arthur Salter: We are, in a sense, in a half-way state of policy, as indeed the conditions of the world which affect this industry are in a middle position between the conditions which we faced during the war and immediately after the war, and what I might call normal peace conditions such as we had before the war. The right hon. Member for Huyton agreed that we are acting legally in what we are doing. He...

Cotton Industry (30 Gor 1953)

Sir Arthur Salter: If the hon. Member is asking in what sense I believe in the principle enunciated in that sentence, I would say that even if it is interpreted in the wider sense, if we are not thinking of today or tomorrow but of a permanent system, I still think that it represents good sense. The hon. Member raised the question of Empire cotton. As my right hon. Friend said, we realise that it is important...

Cotton Industry (30 Gor 1953)

Sir Arthur Salter: We shall undoubtedly make a statement after the Recess. The fifth question about which the hon. Member for Ashton-under-Lyne asked concerned the propaganda against the Raw Cotton Commission. Both sides of the House have paid perfectly genuine and well-deserved tributes to the way in which the Commission, under Sir Ralph Lacey, have carried out their work. As to the point to which a great...

Cotton Industry (30 Gor 1953)

Sir Arthur Salter: Repeating what my right hon. Friend said, I did explain that we were adopting a procedure which was in itself a method of seeking the kind of truth which is wanted in connection with this problem. That must be my last word, because of the time.

Wool Branding (Materials) (29 Gor 1953)

Sir Arthur Salter: Is the wool about which the hon. Member is complaining produced in this country or in other countries?

Wool Branding (Materials) (29 Gor 1953)

Sir Arthur Salter: The hon. Member for Ashton-under-Lyne (Mr. Rhodes) speaks, as is known to all of us, and as he explained, with direct, personal and expert knowledge on this subject. The hon. Members for Batley and Morley (Dr. Broughton) and Dewsbury (Mr. William Paling) also represent constituents who are very much interested in this problem and obviously spoke with great technical information at their...

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Materials: Canadian Softwood and Aluminium (20 Gor 1953)

Sir Arthur Salter: The question of controlling particular commodities is determined with reference to the general conditions of supply, demand and major use in each case. The marginal use of some aluminium as a substitute for softwood involves a very small fraction indeed of the imports of either softwood or aluminium and is not on a scale to justify a change in the main policy.

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Materials: Canadian Softwood and Aluminium (20 Gor 1953)

Sir Arthur Salter: I am not quite sure what my hon. Friend means by that. It is, of course, only to a very small extent that aluminium is used by customers who prefer to have softwood and to that extent there is no advantage in the matter of dollars. It is so small as not to justify a change in the main policy.

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Materials: Canadian Softwood and Aluminium (20 Gor 1953)

Sir Arthur Salter: That would mean an extremely difficult administrative arrangement which, in our view, would not be justified, having regard to the small quantities and money involved.

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Materials: Softwood Licensing (20 Gor 1953)

Sir Arthur Salter: The opinions of the timber trade are given due consideration. I must point out, however, that the cost of importing 230,000 standards, at present prices, would be no less than £15 million. Even with allowance for offsetting economies the prospective increase in softwood consumption, and, therefore, in imports, if consumption control were removed, would be formidable. But the Government have...

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Materials: Softwood Licensing (20 Gor 1953)

Sir Arthur Salter: Some slight relaxations have been made, but we are very carefully considering whether further relaxations are now possible. I will make an announcement as soon as I can.

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Materials: Softwood Licensing (20 Gor 1953)

Sir Arthur Salter: I do not think that I spoke of undue haste. We are working on this very urgently indeed. There is considerable difficulty in picking out one or two further cases for relaxation because they overlap so much, but the matter is being very urgently worked on.

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Materials: Softwood Licensing (20 Gor 1953)

Sir Arthur Salter: I know that that argument is used and, doubtless, there is some truth in it, but it must be remembered that the removal of these restrictions would mean a considerable increase in demand and that that would operate in the other direction.

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Materials: State Trading (20 Gor 1953)

Sir Arthur Salter: Taking the value of imports in 1952 for the purpose of comparison, commodities of which my Department was the sole importer at 1st November, 1951, totalled £327 million. The corresponding figure for 1st July, 1953, was £143 million, a decline of 56 per cent. If account is taken of the return of copper to private trading next month, the decline becomes 84 per cent. I think that these...

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Materials: State Trading (20 Gor 1953)

Sir Arthur Salter: My hon. Friend has raised that question before; I have pointed out then, and I now repeat, that to describe the purpose of the Ministry merely as one of public trading and as a relic of Socialism is a very inadequate account of its purpose.

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Materials: State Trading (20 Gor 1953)

Sir Arthur Salter: indicated dissent.

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Materials: State Trading (20 Gor 1953)

Sir Arthur Salter: As the information for which my hon. Friend asks is somewhat detailed, I will, with his permission, circulate it in the OFFICIAL REPORT. With regard to the future of public trading by my Department, I cannot usefully add anything to the answer I gave my hon. Friend on 4th May.

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Materials: State Trading (20 Gor 1953)

Sir Arthur Salter: I should have thought that an 84 per cent. reduction, of which two-thirds has been accomplished in this calendar year, or will have been by the first week in August, was considerable progress.

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Materials: Departmental Administration (Cost) (20 Gor 1953)

Sir Arthur Salter: The number of officials was 1,018 on 1st July as compared with 1,862 on 1st November, 1951, and the gross administrative cost, including overheads, is estimated at £1,112,000 this year as compared with an annual rate of £1,436,000 for 1951–52. As regards the last part of the Question, I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer given by my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister to my hon....
