Foreign Affairs. (22 Feb 1938)

Mr John Cartland: I was sorry to interrupt my hon. Friend in the middle of his speech, but it has been assiduously rumoured—I saw it in the "Times" this morning by no less a person than the Chancellor of the Exchequer—that my right hon. Friend resigned and took the action which he did on account of ill-health. I do not believe there is an element of truth in that. I believe that when he took the decision...

Friend the President of the Board of Trade said that he was somewhat surprised by the very wide field which this Debate had covered; lately it seems that most of the speeches have dealt with the problem of agriculture.

Orders of the Day — Cost of Living. (28 Jul 1937)

Mr John Cartland: There is nothing in it except that he was expressing what, I think, is the generally accepted view, that this rise in wages must take place. In our view it can only take place if nothing drastic is done to upset the industrial organisation which provides the money for the wages. I would ask the House to consider two general propositions with regard to the question of the cost of living. The...
