Private Business.: CARDIFF CORPORATION BILL (By Order). (30 Apr 1930)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: The Bradbury Committee said that at a liberal estimate the new savings secured by the Birmingham Bank amounted to £1,000,000.

Private Business.: CARDIFF CORPORATION BILL (By Order). (30 Apr 1930)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: My argument does not rest on that. I do not reject the savings bank as a means of thrift; obviously every new agency which is created taps some source of savings; but what I am pointing out is that we must not attach too much importance to the power of a municipal bank to stimulate savings, as the savings which it secures consist for the most part of money diverted from other agencies which...

Private Business.: CARDIFF CORPORATION BILL (By Order). (30 Apr 1930)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: In the discussion of a Clause of this kind, the figures I have given are of general interest. I do not say that Bristol is more patriotic or has more of the civic spirit than Cardiff, but I believe that the argument for establishing a municipal bank is entirely dependent upon the existence of that civil spirit. The figures I have given show that hon. Members opposite would be well advised to...

Private Business.: CARDIFF CORPORATION BILL (By Order). (30 Apr 1930)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: I am not going into any more detail upon that point, although I am quite prepared, at any time, to explain why Bristol was refused those powers, and that is much more pertinent to the argument. I want to ask whether you cannot get money for corporation purposes as effectively through existing institutions as you could by establishing a municipal bank. The success of a municipal bank is...

Private Business.: CARDIFF CORPORATION BILL (By Order). (30 Apr 1930)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: I would like to read these few further lines from the Bradbury Report: The Governor of the Bank of England thought that the establishment of municipal banks would cause very serious embarrassment to Government finance, and that no worse time than the present or during the next 10 years could be chosen for recommending their extension. Is the position any better to-day; is the need for...

Private Business.: CARDIFF CORPORATION BILL (By Order). (30 Apr 1930)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: I know how extraordinarily difficult it is to obtain the right type of men for municipal Government, and to obtain the whole-time services of those who are prepared to serve their city; and for that reason alone I think it would be a mistake to thrust new duties upon the Corporation. I do not believe that hon. Members opposite are in any way concerned with the encouragement of thrift. Their...

Private Business.: CARDIFF CORPORATION BILL (By Order). (30 Apr 1930)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: Do we understand that the Financial Secretary ignores the considered opinions of the permanent officials? I ask that because the letter that I read, addressed to the Bristol Corporation, was signed by Sir Otto Niemeyer. I understand that his views are not changed because there is a new Financial Secretary?

Private Business.: CARDIFF CORPORATION BILL (By Order). (30 Apr 1930)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: If the Financial Secretary looks at page 46 of the Bradbury Committee's report he will see "The Treasury can only view with the greatest apprehension," and so on. Are we to understand that that is the view of the Government of the day or the view of the officials who gave evidence before the Bradbury Committee?

Oral Answers to Questions — Unemployment.: Iron and Steel Industry (Dominion Contracts). (20 May 1930)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: Can the right hon. Gentleman answer the question which has been put to him?

Oral Answers to Questions — Unemployment.: Industries (Reorganisation). (1 Jul 1930)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: Will the right hon. Gentleman inform the House whether he claims any credit for these reorganisations which are taking place?

Oral Answers to Questions — Post Office.: Brazil (British Embassy). (1 Jul 1930)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: 60. asked the First Commissioner of Works if he will state the date upon which the Brazilian Government offered a site for the new British Embassy at Rio de Janeiro and the date upon which the offer was accepted?

Oral Answers to Questions — Post Office.: Brazil (British Embassy). (1 Jul 1930)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: When will work be started upon this new site, and is the right hon. Gentleman considering sending out a permanent secretary of the Office of Works to investigate?

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: New Clause. — (Repeal of duty on vegetable turpentine and white spirit.) (7 Jul 1930)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: I would like to congratulate the Chancellor on the charming and almost disarming way in which he has refused this request, but I am sorry that he should have based his excuse on the Petrol Duties, because the duty upon turpentine has no real connection with the hydrocarbon oil duties. They were imposed partly in order to raise revenue and partly to levy a fairer burden upon motor car users...

Oral Answers to Questions — Unemployment.: Political Parties (Conferences). (10 Jul 1930)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: Will the Prime Minister say whether, after the events of yesterday, any further meetings will take place?

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: New Clause. — (Relief to money expended on plant or machinery.) (17 Jul 1930)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: I intervene in this debate because, like many of my hon. Friends, I feel that the Chancellor of the Exchequer is paying no attention whatever to any constructive suggestions to help industry by means of this Budget, and I should like to express my gratitude to the Liberal party for having introduced this new Clause and for having addressed arguments so strong in favour of it. It is a Clause...

Oral Answers to Questions — British Army.: Poison Gases (Experiments). (22 Jul 1930)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: Will the right hon. Gentleman consider testing the efficacy of these gases by experimenting on the hon. Member?

Orders of the Day — King's Speech.: Debate on the Address. (3 Nov 1930)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: You promised them £1.

Orders of the Day — King's Speech.: Debate on the Address. (3 Nov 1930)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: Go and seek it.

Order of the Day.: Debate on the Address. (4 Nov 1930)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: We have listened to an interesting speech, but one which has little relation to the Amendment we have moved in order to draw attention to the inactivity of the Government in dealing with this important problem. No doubt the hon. Member will address his strictures on adherence to the gold standard to his own Chancellor of the Exchequer, because the Chancellor of the Exchequer could not have...

Order of the Day.: Debate on the Address. (4 Nov 1930)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: H that proved to be a winner at the last election I am rather doubtful about the new issue of this policy being adequate to deal with the unemployment problem. The Liberal party has always advocated the flotation of a huge loan in order to secure the future prosperity of this country and to meet present needs. By adopting such a policy it may be possible to tide over our difficulties for a...
