King's Speech.: Debate on the Address. (9 Nov 1936)

Mr John Cartland: Many Members who have listened to the hon. Member for Dundee (Mr. Foot) will be in agreement with much of what he has said. The hon. Member gave us a quotation from Sydney Smith. Let me give him a quotation from George Canning: Black's not so black; nor white so very white. As I have listened to the speeches of hon. Members of the Opposition I have felt inclined to remind them that not all...

King's Speech.: Debate on the Address. (9 Nov 1936)

Mr John Cartland: The hon. Lady interrupted me too soon—the remarkable achievements in Russia. Does the hon. Lady now wish to interrupt me?

King's Speech.: Debate on the Address. (9 Nov 1936)

Mr John Cartland: The hon. Lady naturally has far greater knowledge of Russia than I have. When people look abroad and see the remarkable achievements in foreign countries—in Russia, in Germany, in Italy—they are very much concerned, because in this country they see exactly the same problems and they find no solution to them. I believe those problems are not merely problems for democracy or for a National...

Unemployment Assistance Act, 1934. (21 Jul 1936)

Mr John Cartland: The hon. Member for Kingswinford (Mr. A. Henderson) gave us a review of the Poor Law since the days of Queen Elizabeth, and we on this side of the House will find no quarrel with the various steps which he set out. When he came to 1931, however, and made the point which has frequently been made of the difference between the means test as imposed by the National Government and the means test...

Unemployment Assistance Act, 1934. (21 Jul 1936)

Mr John Cartland: I accept at once what the hon. Gentleman says. In fact, I was going on to make that clear, but from that there follow certain arguments which I should like to make. Before doing so, however, I wish to make a remark about a point, which has been made before, that this Government has subsidised the capitalist machine to the extent of tens of millions of pounds. We accept that. We find nothing...

Unemployment Assistance Act, 1934. (21 Jul 1936)

Mr John Cartland: I am in the recollection of the House when I say that he referred to the salaries of both the Minister and of Lord Rushcliffe. He also rather made fun of the fact that in the Regulations the words "flexibility," "discretion," "advice" and "assistance" occur so frequently, and he said that no Government publication within his knowledge had even contained words of this character so many times....

Unemployment Assistance Act, 1934. (21 Jul 1936)

Mr John Cartland: That just shows that a little caution and a little consideration were necessary; but if the right hon. Gentleman says, "We ought to have had more time to consider these Regulations" he cannot turn round and make it a point that immediately on publication a great agitation burst out. I should have thought the right hon. Gentleman would have been very pleased at the delay. I have turned up, as...
