Orders of the Day — Supply.: Mines Department of the Board of Trade. (26 Feb 1931)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: I only wish to know whether we are committing ourselves to further expenditure in the future.

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Mines Department of the Board of Trade. (26 Feb 1931)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: On a point of Order. Is it in order to discuss battleships?

Oral Answers to Questions — Post Office.: Telephone Service, Bristol. (2 Mar 1931)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: 52. asked the Postmaster-General why applicants for the installation of a telephone service in the Bristol area are being asked to wait at least 12 months for connection with the service?

Oral Answers to Questions — Post Office.: Telephone Service, Bristol. (2 Mar 1931)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: I cannot agree that the—[HON. MEMBERS: "Order!"] Am I correct in saying—[Interruption]. I have a letter which is in direct contradiction.

GREY SEALS PROTECTION BILL [Lords]. (2 Mar 1931)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: I should not have intervened but for the inadequacy of the explanations given, both by the Secretary of State for Scotland and the Under-Secretary, for taking the protection of this animal out of the Expiring Laws Continuance Act and putting it into this Measure. I am reinforced in my doubts as to that course by the speech of the hon. Gentleman the Member for Orkney and Shetland (Sir R....

Civil Estimates, Supplementary Estimate, 1930.: Class Vii. (3 Mar 1931)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: I should not have intervened if I had not heard the name of Bristol mentioned. I am much obliged to my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Harrow (Major Salmon) for having raised this question, which I was too modest to mention before. My hon. and gallant Friend, in complaining of the expenditure on the Bristol Exchange, can have no idea of the vast increase in unemployment that has taken...

Oral Answers to Questions — Post Office.: Telephone Service, Bristol. (9 Mar 1931)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: 60. asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that, owing to the rearrangement of underground work in connection with the Bristol automatic scheme, there will be a delay of at least 12 months before resi- dents at Sea Mills can be given any precise information as to when the telephone service can be supplied to them; and whether he will take steps to hasten their connection with the...

Civil Estimates, Supplementary Estimate, 1930.: Class Vii. (9 Mar 1931)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: The right hon. Gentleman's reply is most unsatisfactory partly because he has tried to shelter himself behind the delinquencies of his predecessors. What strikes me as extraordinary is that hon. Members opposite should blame us because we are a little more efficient in our criticism of the administration than they were when they were in opposition. It is our duty to criticise the...

Orders of the Day — Ways and Means.: Payment of Income Tax by Instalments. (5 May 1931)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: I sincerely hope that the eloquent and impassioned appeal made by the hon. and gallant Member for Central Hull (Lieut.-Commander Kenworthy) will not fall on deaf ears this year, especially in view of the general expression of approval that has been shown for this Amendment in all parts of the House. That hope is reinforced by the fact that the Chancellor, not very long ago, voted in favour of...

Orders of the Day — Ways and Means.: Payment of Income Tax by Instalments. (5 May 1931)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: Has not the integrity of the hydrocarbon duties been violated already by the exclusion of paraffin?

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: Clause 1. — (Increase of customs duty on hydrocarbon oils.) (8 Jun 1931)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: I am sorry that the hon. Member for South-West Bethnal Green (Mr. Harris) should have twitted Members in this part of the Committee with their opposition to this duty and advanced it as an argument against the imposition of protective duties. There is one thing which this duty on white spirits and turpentine is not. It is not a protective duty. Some 90 per cent. of the white spirits used in...

Consumers' Council Bill (Selection of Amendments). (19 Jun 1931)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: I do not want to go into the wider questions which are raised by the Motion, or whether it is or is not desirable, as the hon. Member for Mossley (Mr. H. Gibson) said, that we should cut the cackle and get on with the job. I am inclined to think with hon. Members in all parts of the House that there is too much legislation at the present time. We are crowding one big Act upon another to such...

Consumers' Council Bill (Selection of Amendments). (19 Jun 1931)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: I am glad that the hon. Member has drawn attention to that point, which has already been emphasised by my right hon. Friend the Member for Bewdley (Mr. S. Baldwin). It is a very dangerous weapon which can be used by both parties in the House. I say both parties, because I do not suppose that there will ever be an opportunity for the party below the Gangway to exercise it. It is a weapon which...

Consumers' Council Bill (Selection of Amendments). (19 Jun 1931)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: It was not a question of rising in time. I saw no desire evinced by any member of the Committee to speak.

Consumers' Council Bill (Selection of Amendments). (19 Jun 1931)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: My memory differs from that of the right hon. Gentleman. If that be so, it is rather remarkable that the right hon. Gentleman was given his Closure without a Division.

Consumers' Council Bill (Selection of Amendments). (19 Jun 1931)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: We have tried to be conciliatory in face of very great obstacles. The hon. Member for Leigh (Mr. Tinker) hit the nail on the head when he suggested that the First Lord of the Admiralty, with his breezy, nautical manner, was trying different tactics, in order to get the Bill through, from the tactics adopted by the President of the Board of Trade a year ago. That may have been one of the...

Consumers' Council Bill (Selection of Amendments). (19 Jun 1931)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: I will withdraw the word "impudence," and suggest that the hon. Member has shown extraordinary audacity in daring to intervene in a Debate of this sort. I think I am right in saying that on more than two occasions he has been ordered to leave this House for vulgar and irrelevant interruptions. I should have thought that the hon. Member would have restrained his enthusiasm for the curtailment...

Consumers' Council Bill (Selection of Amendments). (19 Jun 1931)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: I do not need to take any hints on conduct from the hon. Member for Peckham (Mr. Beckett).

Consumers' Council Bill (Selection of Amendments). (19 Jun 1931)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: On principle we must strongly resist this Motion, and on the ground of its application to this particular Bill we must also resist it. The Government have made out no case for it. Any delay has been due to the delay of the Government in bringing forward the Bill, and during the discussions in the Committee any delay has been largely caused by the attitude of the right hon. Gentleman in charge...

Orders of the Day — Postponed Clause 19. — (Exemptions.) (23 Jun 1931)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: On a point of Order. Is the hon. Member entitled to discuss other parts of the Bill when speaking on this Amendment?
