Mr Bertram Falle: My right hon. Friend the Minister has given us the kind of speech that was expected from him—thorough and lucid—and if I ventureé to criticise him he will understand that I have no intention of attacking him.

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Sir Bolton Eyres Monsell's Statement. (7 Mar 1932)

Mr Bertram Falle: There are quite a number of them. An hon. Member who has now left the House was very keen about the calibre of guns. I venture to cross swords with him on that point, and that point only, because he has much greater knowledge, probably, than I have. I do not think it is the calibre of the gun that matters so much. What matters is, first of all, its accuracy, secondly, its range—that is the...

Member opposite also has a nickname, a very honourable one, or I...

He may know a. great deal about large farms, but he does not know very much about small holdings and small farms of some 20 or 25 acres such as are found in the Channel Islands. Perhaps he will do me the honour to consult with me on this point, or he might do even better by going to the...

Mr Bertram Falle: Those are British subjects who have migrated from the main land, and it is up to this House to catch them. It surely cannot be suggested that the islanders should penalise them because they had come to the islands to spend money.

Mr Bertram Falle: To go back to the produce of the islands. Their exports of new potatoes begin in May and go on in June and into July. The price received is usually very low.
