British Sugar [Subsidy]. (27 Jun 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: In continuance of the discussion on the point of Order, may I say that the Amendment was drafted with full knowledge of the Rule to which you have called our attention. The purposes of the Rule, as I understand them, were that it was not in Order to propose to increase the charge or to alter the purpose. With great respect, I would suggest that the Ruling that you now give seems to go...

British Sugar [Subsidy]. (27 Jun 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: I have no desire at all, in saying a little more on the question of Order, to be obstructive or to delay the proceedings of the Committee unnecessarily, but I would suggest that your interpretation of the Rule implies a very great extension of what we on this side of the House understood to be its meaning. In our Amendment we do not propose to increase the charge or to alter the purposes for...

British Sugar [Subsidy]. (27 Jun 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: I accept your ruling and I hope that when the Bill is presented it will be open to us in some form to move Amendments dealing with some of the matters indicated in our Amendment. This proposal is in line with the one we were discussing yesterday. That was a Resolution to give the Government more time for thought. This is for the same purpose. It is surprising, in view of the recent additions...

British Sugar [Subsidy]. (27 Jun 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: Yes, I have the actual figures here. But for all that, surely the right hon. Gentleman will admit that the sudden withdrawal from the market of 600,000 tons of sugar would deliver this country into the hands of the sugar refiners lock, stock and barrel, and that it would be a serious temptation to them to put up the price. If I know anything of the habits and the customs of those who control...

British Sugar [Subsidy]. (27 Jun 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: It would be the first time that the manufacturers of a product are not interested in what that product makes on the market. I am sure it would be very profitable to them, and they are doing extraordinarily well as it is. In this connection, I must draw attention to certain recommendations in the Committee's Report. They see how undesirable it is that there should be a continuance of this...

British Sugar [Subsidy]. (27 Jun 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: These gentlemen in that unfortunate position seem to have distributed immense dividends, and I think the misfortunes of the refiners will be very hard to find. One very important concern, Messrs. Tate and Lyle, seem to be doing extraordinarily well, capitalising a very large mass of profits, creating 1,700,000 ordinary shares, and distributing 1,360,000 of them to existing holders of shares....

British Sugar [Subsidy]. (27 Jun 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: The right hon. Gentleman should not forget that there is already a penny a pound on sugar.

Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Air Force.: Contracts (Control of Prices). (26 Jun 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: Can the right hon. Gentleman say how, with the best will in the world, these gentlemen can be effective unless adequate powers are at their disposal? What are the powers that he proposes to place at their disposal?

Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Air Force.: Contracts (Control of Prices). (26 Jun 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: Is it not a fact that two at least of these three distinguished gentlemen were unable to give effective assistance to me until the Munitions of War (Amendment) Act had been passed by this House endowing them with adequate powers? What similar powers does the right hon. Gentleman propose to give them?

Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Air Force.: Contracts (Control of Prices). (26 Jun 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: Is it not a fact that neither the right hon. Gentleman nor any other Minister at the present time is equipped with powers which were found to be necessary when these gentlemen operated before, and, if so, why is he unwilling to take the same powers again?

Cattle Industry (Emergency Provisions) Act, 1935. (26 Jun 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: The right hon. and gallant Member for Ripon (Major Hills) drew attention a few minutes ago to the inspissated gloom of the speech of my hon. Friend the Member for Don Valley (Mr. T. Williams). I must say that speech was in striking contrast to the scintillating cheerfulness of the speeches of the right hon. Member for South Molton (Mr. G. Lambert), the hon. Member for Leominster (Sir E....

Cattle Industry (Emergency Provisions) Act, 1935. (26 Jun 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: I was discussing the hon. Member's joy over the repentance of the right hon. Gentleman in the matter of tariffs. The right hon. Gentleman said he was going to adopt the tariff method, and I was pointing out why it must fail, as the quantitative restriction method has failed. We are gradually drifting to the semi-Socialistic principles of the right hon. and gallant Gentleman the Member for...

Dr Christopher Addison: The Socialist party specifically lays down that it will pay, and desires to pay, fair compensation for the property acquired.

Orders of the Day — RESTRICTION OF RIBBON DEVELOPMENT BILL [Lords.] (25 Jun 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: A few minutes ago I had the intention of making some observations on the speech delivered by the hon. Member for St. Albans (Sir F. Fremantle), but I see that he has rapidly sought a more crowded quarter, perhaps. The speech which he made, as the one made by the hon. Member for Stone (Sir J. Lamb), about the need for developing, planning, and the settlement of communities in a rational way in...

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture.: Sulphate of Ammonia (Import Duty). (24 Jun 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: 20. asked the Minister of Agriculture whether his attention has been drawn to the negotiations between the National Farmers Union and the British Sulphate of Ammonia Federation and Imperial Chemical Industries, Limited, with regard to the withdrawal of the opposition of the National Farmers Union before the Import Duties Advisory Committee to the application of Imperial Chemical Industries,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Hours of Work (Reduction). (24 Jun 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: May we take it that it is the policy of the Government to oppose a reduction of hours even when a large number of other nations are willing to reduce them?
