Dr Christopher Addison: I am moved to rise in support of my hon. Friend because of the action of the Chancellor of the Exchequer in calling upon his hon. Friend to answer, and also because of something arising out of the argument that he has addressed to us. The right hon. 'Gentleman may hereafter be known as the persecutor of the motor trade. The hon. Gentleman behind me expressed his heartfelt desire with...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: New Clause. — (Reduction of vehicle licence duty on commercial goods vehicles.) (24 Jun 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: I was not discussing the merits of it, but its relation to the argument addressed to us. The argument was how necessary it was that there should be continuity of method in taxation, and that the motor trade should know what was going to happen to it for a long period of years. I am only suggesting that that argument, however good it is in itself, is certainly not appropriate to this Bill,...

Civil Estimates, 1935.: Ministry of Transport. (3 Jun 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: I do not propose to pursue the interesting practical suggestions made by the hon. Member for Hanley (Mr. Hales) but I intervene in support of the point brought forward by the hon. and gallant Member for Wallasey (Lieut.-Colonel Moore-Brabazon). In calling the attention of the House to the action of the Treasury in this matter the hon. and gallant Member is bringing forward a matter which...

Defence Policy. (22 May 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: The speech of the right hon. Member for Epping (Mr. Churchill), full of interesting descriptions, full, as all his utterances are, of great breadth of knowledge, might have supplied that peroration which was missing from the speech of the Lord President of the Council. The Lord President told us that he had made a peroration but had torn it up, and it became replaced by one in which he...

Defence Policy. (22 May 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: I cannot dispute the figures of the Noble Earl, because I do not know where he got them, and therefore I accept his statement as correct. The fact is that the Government's proposal will not provide us with an adequate defence. That is undeniable. It is equally undeniable that the horrible situation in which we find ourselves is the result, without a doubt, of mismanagement of foreign policy....

Defence Policy. (22 May 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: That makes it all the easier for the Government to approach this matter con amore. As far as big guns are concerned, the Foreign Secretary knows that the matter was remitted to a committee of artillerists, and that they sat for something like three months examining technical questions which arose as to the size of guns. He knows how futile that method of procedure has proved. At any rate,...

The result was hope- less confusion, and it was only when the whole thing...

Orders of the Day — Housing Bill.: Clause 2. — (Definition of overcrowding.) (20 May 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: Although there may be objections of an important kind to the wording of the Amendment the Minister must recognise that in all quarters of the House there is deep sympathy with its intention.
