Orders of the Day — Agricultural Land (Utilisation) Bill.: Clause 3. — (Power of Minister to acquire land for purposes of reconditioning.) (5 Feb 1931)

Mr Henry Cautley: I have been interested in what the Scottish Lord Advocate has said, and I am curious to know if that is the view of the English law or of the Scots law only. As I understand the matter, under Section 68 of the Lands Clauses Act it is clear that in the assessment of compensation any damage done would be payable in respect of other land owned by the same owner as the person whose land had been...

Orders of the Day — Agricultural Land (Utilisation) Bill.: Clause 3. — (Power of Minister to acquire land for purposes of reconditioning.) (5 Feb 1931)

Mr Henry Cautley: I would appeal to the Minister to say whether, with the object of improving his Bill, he cannot dispense with the word "reconditioning"? It does not appear in the Bill, except in the margin of Clause 3, and it is a word that has only recently come into use at all. It is unknown to the law, and its meaning is absolutely uncertain. It is, apparently, meant to apply to "works of maintenance"...

Orders of the Day — Agricultural Land (Utilisation) Bill.: Clause 3. — (Power of Minister to acquire land for purposes of reconditioning.) (5 Feb 1931)

Mr Henry Cautley: My point was as to the necessity of the word "reconditioning," and my argument was that "re- pair" is a word that has been construed by many judges, and is well known. "Reconditioning" is a new word, and will be subject to much litigation in future.

Orders of the Day — Agricultural Land (Utilisation) Bill.: Clause 6. — (Power of Minister to provide smallholdings with financial assistance for unemployed persons.) (5 Feb 1931)

Mr Henry Cautley: The Minister ought to have had one of the Law Officers to reply to the Debate in view of such non-sense as that to which we have just listened. I use the word "nonsense" definitely because the right hon. Gentleman was so discourteous to my hon. Friend the Member for Watford (Sir D. Herbert). My hon. Friend, of course, has read the Bill and he has read it aright, and it is no use the Minister...

Orders of the Day — Agricultural Land (Utilisation) Bill.: Clause 6. — (Power of Minister to provide smallholdings with financial assistance for unemployed persons.) (5 Feb 1931)

Mr Henry Cautley: I cannot say whether they would or not. [Laughter.] It is not a matter for laughter. If the bank made an advance under the Agricultural Credits Act it would get an actual security. Therefore in all probability the bank would make an advance in many cases. In addition to giving the smallholders, under this part of the Bill, these enormous advantages, providing them at the public expense with...

Orders of the Day — Agricultural Land (Utilisation) Bill.: Clause 6. — (Power of Minister to provide smallholdings with financial assistance for unemployed persons.) (5 Feb 1931)

Mr Henry Cautley: Under the Agricultural Credits Act the bank gets an absolute security in preference to anybody else. I disagree with the wording of the Amendment to the proposed Amendment. I think it is unworkable. The original Amendment is the one that ought to be accepted. For practical purposes it prevents a man raising a loan on these articles.

Orders of the Day — Agricultural Land (Utilisation) Bill.: Clause 6. — (Power of Minister to provide smallholdings with financial assistance for unemployed persons.) (5 Feb 1931)

Mr Henry Cautley: I think what the Under-Secretary has said is very reasonable, provided that it means reconsider with a view to preventing the persons for whom such things have been provided being put in a position to raise money on them to the detriment of the Government's security for the loan.

Orders of the Day — Agricultural Land (Utilisation) Bill.: Clause 1. — (Establishment of Agricul tural Land Corporation.) (4 Feb 1931)

Mr Henry Cautley: May I submit to the Minister another important point which might have to be met in connection with this Measure. In the earlier part of Sub-section (1) of this Clause the corporation is described as being: for the purpose of promoting and improving the agricultural development of such land in Great Britain as may be vested in the corporation by conducting thereon large-scale farming...

Agriculture. (26 Nov 1930)

Mr Henry Cautley: I beg to move, That, in the opinion of this House, it is essential to the well-being of the nation that the economic position of farmers other than occupiers of family or special farms, which is so bad that a largo proportion are now insolvent and will be shortly compelled to give up their farms, should be improved; and, seeing that this condition is in the main caused by the wide gap between...

Agriculture. (26 Nov 1930)

Mr Henry Cautley: Special farms are those which are devoted to high-class pedigree stock, or to some, special brand of stock, or some special kind of produce. The family farm, as is well-known to the House., is a farm worked by the farmer and his family and its distinguishing feature is that it avoids any obligation as to the rates of wages prescribed under the Agricultural Wages (Regulation) Act, 1924. As a...

Agriculture. (26 Nov 1930)

Mr Henry Cautley: We sell our surplus goods all over the world. I am pointing out that the surplus products of every other country come to this country and do not go to other countries. They are concentrated here. The essential difference is that countries, apart from this, are not allowed to send their products into other countries; they all come here. I agree that that secures cheap food, and it may be to...

Agriculture. (26 Nov 1930)

Mr Henry Cautley: They are a vital part.

Agriculture. (26 Nov 1930)

Mr Henry Cautley: It is not their fault if they cannot grow wheat at 26s. a quarter.

Agriculture. (26 Nov 1930)

Mr Henry Cautley: There is no need. In this country we have a market at hand.

Agriculture. (26 Nov 1930)

Mr Henry Cautley: I am anxious for the smallholder as well as for the larger farmer, but the position of the smallholder technically does not arise on this Motion.

Orders of the Day — Agriculture Bill.: New Clause. — (Amendment of Landlord and Tenant Act, 1851.) (2 Nov 1930)

Mr Henry Cautley: I think it would have been better if the Parliamentary Secretary had been fortified with the presence of one of the Law Officers, for I wish to raise a legal point as to the position of landlord and tenant. I want to know whether this new Clause will cover only cases of the tenancies of glebe land. The Clause as it is drawn deals with the Landlord and Tenant Act, 1851. It is, in fact, an...

Orders of the Day — Agriculture Bill.: New Clause. — (Incoming tenant's claim for compensation.) (2 Nov 1930)

Mr Henry Cautley: I hope the House will not be led away by the speeches made by the hon. Members from Scotland, for I am perfectly certain the acceptance of this Clause would add very considerably to the cost to be borne both by the outgoing and the incoming tenant. What is the present position? Under the law as it stands today, the landlord is responsible to the outgoing tenant for compensation for his...

Orders of the Day — Agriculture Bill.: New Clause. — (Application of Act to Cottage on Holdings under Act of 1908.) (2 Nov 1930)

Mr Henry Cautley: This question seems to me to raise questions of principle extending far beyond agriculture—to tied houses in many industries, urban, industrial and otherwise. I only propose to discuss it from the point of view of agriculture. As I read the Clause, the compensation given to a tied tenant will be a year's rent at 3s., because the rent of a tied house is limited by the Act to 3s. a week. That...

Orders of the Day — Agriculture Bill.: New Clause. — (Application of Act to Cottage on Holdings under Act of 1908.) (2 Nov 1930)

Mr Henry Cautley: I was coming to that presently. If, on the other hand, the farm labourer occupies a house on the holding not tied in the way that it is made part of his employment, but he holds it on a weekly or fortnightly tenancy at a higher rent than 3s., the compensation that will have to be paid will be very much more considerable. I am much obliged for the intervention of the right hon. Member for the...

Orders of the Day — Agriculture Bill.: Clause 1. — (Continuance of Corn Production Act, 1917.) (2 Nov 1930)

Mr Henry Cautley: I beg to move, in Subsection (1), after the word "Act" ["that that Act shall cease to be"] to insert the words "and this Act." This Clause continues the provisions of the Corn Production Act, and Part I of the Corn Production Act provides for the minimum prices of wheat and oats. The proviso in this Clause provides that the Corn Production Act shall cease to be in force on an Address...
