Orders of the Day — Agriculture. (20 Jul 1931)

Mr George Dallas: The speech to which we have just listened was a speech of the kind that makes the members of the Conservative party, both in and out of Parliament, the laughing-stock of the whole country. I wondered whether, if the Noble Lady had been speaking last year or the year before, not about Russia but about the Argentine, everything in her speech would not have applied exactly to the Argentine,...

Orders of the Day — Agriculture. (20 Jul 1931)

Mr George Dallas: I am going to describe how much the Conservative Government produced. I will read it to the House, and will let Members on this side and on the opposite side be the judges as to which Government has produced the best policy. The point that I was going to make was that the Conservative party failed to restore or preserve the industry, but the present Prime Minister, right at the beginning of...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: Clause 20. — (Exemptions.) ( 2 Jul 1931)

Mr George Dallas: I sympathise with the development of garden cities but I am afraid that hon. Members opposite who have been talking about them, with the exception perhaps of the hon. and gallant Member for St. Albans (Lieut.-Colonel Fremantle), do not know anything about the practical operation of the movement. Otherwise there would not be a single supporter on that side for exemption in this case. I know...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: Clause 20. — (Exemptions.) ( 2 Jul 1931)

Mr George Dallas: I am not making any suggestion of that kind, but let me show how;t worked out. The interests of a private company at some time or other must conflict with the public interest. [HON. MEMBERS: "Why?"] I will show hon. Members why. The engineer who made the roads for the private company became the surveyor to the council. As surveyor to the council he had to certify that the roads made by the...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: Clause 20. — (Exemptions.) ( 2 Jul 1931)

Mr George Dallas: Let me give another instance and I think that hon. Gentlemen opposite will agree that this is right. A number of subsidiary companies were formed.

Member or any member of the general public wanted to live in any of these houses at that particular time, they...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: Clause 20. — (Exemptions.) ( 2 Jul 1931)

Mr George Dallas: I say that if ever there was a case for the taxation of land values—and I advocated it all the years when I was living there—it is the garden city movement. There are many other points arising out of this Amendment which are not quite germane to this particular argument but at any rate, on the fundamental question of the taxation of land values, I hold that this is a fit and proper case...
