Orders of the Day — Supply.: Navy Estimates, 1935. (14 Mar 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: As the hon. and gallant Gentleman does not seem to wish to continue his remarks on the subject of convoys, I would venture to interject some observations into the Debate. I cannot accept the attitude, almost amounting to an inferiority complex, which the Seconder of the Amendment seemed to adopt in his apologetic references to the Admiralty. The experience which I gained at first hand did not...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Navy Estimates, 1935. (14 Mar 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: With great respect, it was a policy of this kind which inhibited the introduction of the convoy system, and that is the point that I am making. The convoy system was tied up to this worship of the Dreadnought, and we were worshipping a god that did not serve us. The experiences of the War proved that the concentration of the mind of the Admiralty on these larger ships which required such a...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Navy Estimates, 1935. (14 Mar 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: Am I to understand the Noble Lord to suggest that the Admiralty would wait before instituting the convoy system until so many ships had been sunk that the country could not stand it any longer? Surely, they are not going to wait until such conditions arise as occurred on the 17th April, 1917, when 34 ships were sunk one night. Are they going to let us get to that pitch before they start the...

Oral Answers to Questions — British Shipping (Losses at Sea). (12 Mar 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: Will any inquiry into seaworthiness be made by the committee before subsidy grants are made to tramp ships?

Oral Answers to Questions — British Shipping (Losses at Sea). (12 Mar 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: When is such examination made?

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland.: Land Settlement (Gift). (12 Mar 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: May I ask whether the Government will exercise their own powers in this matter instead of being dependent upon the charity of public-spirited individuals?

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland.: Land Settlement (Gift). (12 Mar 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: Have the Government exercised their powers in any measure whatever under the 1931 Act?

Oral Answers to Questions — British Shipping (Losses at Sea). (12 Mar 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: In view of the fact that these two ships have been sunk in these circumstances, and in view of the fact that this House has voted £2,000,000 as a subsidy for these ships, is it not a matter of urgent importance that the House should be informed more fully as to the ships that are lost in these undesirable circumstances?

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

Dr Christopher Addison: I beg to move to leave out "now" and at the end of the Question to add upon this day six months." The Bill follows the terms of the financial Resolution which was fully debated, and therefore I do not propose to repeat now what I said at some length on that occasion. It is fitting, however, in view of the publication of the White Paper, that we should recapitulate the real causes of this...

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

Dr Christopher Addison: I challenge the hon. and gallant Member on that statement. The Socialist party is the first party that has really drawn up an intelligent policy to put agriculture on a, proper basis. The hon. and gallant Member's party does not know how to do it.

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

Dr Christopher Addison: No, I did not.

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

Dr Christopher Addison: I said the price of beef was made by the purchasing power of the public.

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

Dr Christopher Addison: I am very interested in the right hon. Gentleman's arithmetic and perhaps he will explain what he means by saying that two men lost their jobs every minute.

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Civil Estimates and Estimates for Revknue Departments, 1935 (Vote on Account). (7 Mar 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: Do I understand that the right hon. Gentleman's interpretation of these powers will extend to the Official Receiver being able to investigate the affairs of these other companies we have been told about—companies which were registered in the Isle of Man and elsewhere, and which appear to have been mixed up with this one? Would it cover that?

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Civil Estimates and Estimates for Revknue Departments, 1935 (Vote on Account). (7 Mar 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: In the first place I would like to associate myself with the hon. Member for East Edinburgh (Mr. D. Mason) in his personal references to the Chancellor of the Exchequer. With regard to the Motion before the House, on behalf of my friends, in view of the generous character of the undertaking given by the President of the Board of Trade on the issue raised in the earlier part of the Debate, we...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Civil Estimates and Estimates for Revknue Departments, 1935 (Vote on Account). (7 Mar 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: I am only saying that these are matters into which we shall want inquiry to be made some time. We believe that these are the issues really raised by the catastrophes which have recently occurred, and while we shall accept, with such fortitude as we can, the results of the inquiry now to be made, we want to see an inquiry into how this kind of thing can be stopped, and what system should be...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Civil Estimates and Estimates for Revknue Departments, 1935 (Vote on Account). (7 Mar 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: I notice that an hon. Member seems to think that that is what he has done. I have no special knowledge myself. I assume it for the moment, because the other alternative is much more dangerous. It is something from which the handful of Members with whom I am associated on this side may derive some comfort, because I was among those who stood here and was assailed by the Prime Minister in his...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Civil Estimates and Estimates for Revknue Departments, 1935 (Vote on Account). (7 Mar 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: I want to increase the purchasing power of the pound to buy goods, which is a different thing. I take it that what it comes to is that the Chancellor of the Exchequer derives satisfaction from the fact that this business has been so managed that, notwithstanding a fall in the value of the pound, it will still purchase as many bread loaves, or whatever 'it may be, as it would before, and that...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Civil Estimates and Estimates for Revknue Departments, 1935 (Vote on Account). (7 Mar 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: The only correction which the hon. Member has made is to make the Prime Minister's statement appear more deplorable than I had thought it to be.
