Orders of the Day — Consumers' Council [Expenses]. (21 Jul 1931)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: I am interested in the Amendment which seeks to insert the words: Provided that the total expenditure incurred by the Boar of Trade under the said Act Shall not exceed £20,000. While I am in agreement with what the hon. Member for Colchester (Mr. O. Lewis) has said, I want to deal rather more fully with the total expense which I presume the First Lord will shortly ask this Committee to...

Orders of the Day — Consumers' Council [Expenses]. (21 Jul 1931)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: I am asking the First Lord of the Admiralty to give us his estimate. Last year we were told that it would be £20,000, but we had not then seen the operation of the Coal Mines Commission proposal. I suggest that the President of the Board of Trade, who talked about an honorarium and about small expenses in connection with that body, would not have given that estimate had he known that a...

Orders of the Day — Consumers' Council [Expenses]. (21 Jul 1931)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: I am relating my repetition of that statement to another argument. I mentioned it in connection with salaries; I now mention it in connection with the services of this commission. The President of the Board of Trade, in the Committee stage of the Coal Mines Bill, said: They are not to be full time people. They must be remunerated to some extent in terms of honorarium or allowance not...

Orders of the Day — Consumers' Council [Expenses]. (21 Jul 1931)

Orders of the Day — Schedule. — (Services in respect of which Orders in Council may be made under this Act.) (28 Sep 1931)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: I think we may take what has been said by the hon. Member for Central Bristol (Mr. Alpass) as a prelude to what he will state on the public hustings in a few weeks' time. The hon. Member has referred to the Bristol Unemployed Association, and I have no doubt that the speech which he has just made, or similar speeches, will be well received when he goes again to that hot-bed of Socialism in...

Orders of the Day — Schedule. — (Services in respect of which Orders in Council may be made under this Act.) (28 Sep 1931)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: That association is as much non-political as the Trades Union Congress or the Co-operative Societies. I have made speeches to the unemployed in Bristol, but most of my speeches were treated with derision, and I drew the conclusion that the hon. Member for Central Bristol was much more welcome among them than I was. [HON. MEMBERS: "Hear, hear!"] Hon. Members opposite say, "Hear, hear!" and I...

Orders of the Day — Schedule. — (Services in respect of which Orders in Council may be made under this Act.) (28 Sep 1931)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: That remark would be irrelevant in any case, but, coming from the hon. Member, it is particularly irrelevant, because I understood that he was always in favour of abolishing all Reparations and War Debts. I was saying that this crisis has been predicted for years by Members on this side of the House, and I do not believe that those who supported hon. Members opposite, who sucked in the bait...
