Orders of the Day — Government of India Bill.: Clause 113. — (Companies incorporated in the United Kingdom.) (27 Mar 1935)

Sir George Clayton: I beg to move, in page 68, line 41, after "India," to insert "restrictions." While the provisions of the Clause would save United Kingdom companies in respect of "requirements or conditions" prescribed, it would not seem that they would be safeguarded against a restriction of their right to trade in common with Indian companies and to enter India for that purpose. There have been a good many...

Orders of the Day — Electricity (Supply) Bill.: Clause 1. — (Arrangements between Central Electricity Board and authorised undertakers.) (5 Dec 1934)

Sir George Clayton: I would appeal to the Minister on behalf of the industrial users of electricity who ought to be considered in this connection. Industrial users may feel that they are likely to be prejudiced under the new powers given to the hoard to sell electricity and really to become undertakers, and I suggest that they should be entitled to have their case considered. Such a concession would involve a...

Orders of the Day — Electricity (Supply) Bill.: Clause 1. — (Arrangements between Central Electricity Board and authorised undertakers.) (5 Dec 1934)

Sir George Clayton: I suggest that those people who consider that they are prejudiced by the action of the commissioners should be entitled to call the attention of the commissioners to the way in which they consider themselves prejudiced. The commissioners would have the right to turn them down if they considered there was nothing in their case, but if they thought it was worth while to meet these people they...

Orders of the Day — GAS UNDERTAKINGS BILL [Lords].: New Clause. — (Power to Scottish local authorities to borrow for purposes of special order.) (15 Jun 1934)

Sir George Clayton: On behalf of the gas manufacturers I would like to add our tribute to the referees. Those of us who are in the gas industry owe a great debt of gratitude to them for the way in which they have discharged their duties, and we feel that we shall lose very valuable friends through the abolition of their office. It is not only a ease of what they have done for us in discharging their respective...

Oral Answers to Questions — Far East. (6 Jun 1934)

Orders of the Day — Electricity (Supply) Bill.: Clause 5. — (Further powers as to entry upon premises.) (4 May 1934)

Sir George Clayton: I ask the House to accept the Clause as it is, because it is impossible for those of us who own works, and especially research works and works with secret processes, to admit the representatives of the undertakers to go where they like in those works and do what they like. We are under the Factory Acts, and the factory inspectors are bound by the Official Secrets Act. The consequence is that...

Orders of the Day — Electricity (Supply) Bill.: Clause 5. — (Further powers as to entry upon premises.) (4 May 1934)

Sir George Clayton: It depends on the home and on the factory. Those of us who are responsible for factories have to look after them, as no doubt the hon. Gentleman looks after the home.

Orders of the Day — Water Supplies (Exceptional Shortage Orders) Bill.: Clause 3. — (Power to authorise the taking of water for an indefinite period and the purchase of land.) (30 Apr 1934)

Sir George Clayton: I beg to move, in page 3, line 33, after "commencement," to insert : and that having regard to all relevant matters (including the interests of persons who may sustain damage by reason of the taking of water under the authority of the Order) the powers to be conferred on the undertakers under this Section are such as might properly have been conferred on them, if apart from any exceptional...

Orders of the Day — Coal Mines Bill. (28 Mar 1934)

Sir George Clayton: So far no one has said a word as to the attitude of the industrial coal consumers. We in industry are extremely interested in this Bill. We fully appreciate the very distressing times through which the coal industry has been passing, especially that portion of the coal industry which is interested in the export trade. We also have met with our difficulties in the export trade, but they have...

Orders of the Day — Seventh Schedule. — (Amended Rates of Duty in the case of certain Mechanic ally-propelled Vehicles.) (20 Jun 1933)

Sir George Clayton: I beg to second the Amendment. I do so because of the newness of this procedure of running motors on gas, and the fact that it is going to be very much handicapped by the great weight of the cylinders. Should there be a very big development in this direction, of course the Minister of Transport can easily make alterations, but during the period when we are trying a new experiment it seems...

Orders of the Day — PATENTS AND DESIGNS BILL [Lords].: Clause 3. — (Grounds for Revocation of Patent.) (24 Jun 1932)

Sir George Clayton: I beg to move, in page 3, line 42, to leave out the first word "or," and to insert instead thereof the word "and". The effect of this Clause is that a patent may be revoked if the primary use is contrary to law. But the word "primary" does not seem to have any effective meaning apart from intent, and obviously if the primary use is illegal and is not intended there is no real ground for...

This is one of five Amendments which deal with the same subject and with your permission, I will take them together. The effect of the Amendment is that appeals under Section 1 of the principal Act are to the Appeal Tribunal just as in the principal Act they were to the Law Officer. The...
