Oral Answers to Questions — National Health Insurance Funds. (27 Apr 1931)

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce.: Russia. (24 Feb 1931)

Mr John Grace: 9. asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is aware that consignments of soap manufactured in Russia by slave labour have now reached this country and are being sold at prices which manufacturers in this country cannot compete with; and whether he is prepared to take any steps to assist this industry?

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce.: Russia. (24 Feb 1931)

Orders of the Day — UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE (No. 2) BILL. (18 Feb 1931)

Mr John Grace: rose—

Orders of the Day — UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE (No. 2) BILL. (18 Feb 1931)

Mr John Grace: The right hon. Lady has referred to the risks which she has to administer. Who has brought about the risks which she has to administer? The Government are like the Bing Boys. They came into office, they stayed, they looked, they listened, and they have done nothing to alter the present conditions in the country. She referred to the Northern Union footballer who for eight months was receiving...

Orders of the Day — Trade Disputes and Trade Unions (Amendment) Bill. (28 Jan 1931)

Mr John Grace: I have milked more cows than you have, anyway.

Home Office. (7 May 1930)

Mr John Grace: You turned them out of the Trade Union Congress.

Orders of the Day — Poor Prisoners' Defence Bill. (2 May 1930)

Mr John Grace: I beg to second the Motion. I think it is of vital importance to the Bill that the House, in Committee, should have an opportunity of considering certain Amendments which have been proposed by the hon. and learned Member for Altrincham (Mr. Atkinson) and myself, because unless these Amendments are made I feel that the Bill will not effect the real purpose for which it was intended.

Orders of the Day — Poor Prisoners' Defence Bill.: Clause 1. — (Defence of poor persons committed for trial.) (2 May 1930)

Mr John Grace: I beg to move, in page 1, line 6, to leave out the words "committed for trial for," and to insert instead thereof the words "charged with." This is an Amendment to change certain words in the first line of Sub-section (1) of this Clause. The Sub-section goes to the very root of the Bill, and it deals with a point which was not discussed in Committee. Apparently, the Committee devoted itself...

Orders of the Day — Poor Prisoners' Defence Bill.: Clause 1. — (Defence of poor persons committed for trial.) (2 May 1930)

Mr John Grace: My only desire in moving this Amendment is that there should be somebody to represent prisoners before the magistrate commits. I do not mind whether the person is a barrister or an experienced solicitor, but there should be somebody there. Clause 2 does not provide and make certain that a solicitor shall be there. It is discretionary, and I desire to make it compulsory. If a man is charged on...

Orders of the Day — Poor Prisoners' Defence Bill.: Clause 1. — (Defence of poor persons committed for trial.) (2 May 1930)

Mr John Grace: It is not "any offence," because if the hon. and learned Member will read the whole Clause, he will see that there are qualifying words, such as "the circumstances of the case."

Orders of the Day — Poor Prisoners' Defence Bill.: Clause 1. — (Defence of poor persons committed for trial.) (2 May 1930)

Mr John Grace: I find some difficulty in following the line of argument of my hon. and learned Friend the Member for Cambridge (Sir J. Withers). He says he actually tried to introduce into the Bill something of the nature of this Amendment, but apparently he has been brow beaten by somebody known as the Home Office. It really is an amazing confession to make on an important measure like this, which is...

Orders of the Day — Poor Prisoners' Defence Bill.: Clause 1. — (Defence of poor persons committed for trial.) (2 May 1930)

Mr John Grace: I beg to move, in page 2, line 13, to leave out from the word "case" to the word "that" in line 14. These words, "including the nature of such defence if any as may have been set up," seem very undesirable words to introduce in this Clause, and they may have very dangerous consequences in the application of the Clause to practical affairs. This proposal raises the question: Is the practice of...

Orders of the Day — Poor Prisoners' Defence Bill.: Clause 1. — (Defence of poor persons committed for trial.) (2 May 1930)

Mr John Grace: I want to ask the Solicitor-General one question. Does he agree that, if these words remain in this Clause, the effect will be that any poor man who refuses to put up a defence before the committing magistrates will have no chance of getting legal aid?

Orders of the Day — Poor Prisoners' Defence Bill.: Clause 3. — (Amendments of 8 Edw. 7. c. 15.) (2 May 1930)

Mr John Grace: I beg to move, in page 3, line 9, after the word "counsel," to insert the words which shall be in the discretion of the court". In this Amendment, I raise the question of the fees which are paid to junior counsel who conduct the defence of poor prisoners. According to the present practice, the fees are settled by Rules made by the Attorney-General, and the existing Rules were made in 1925....

Orders of the Day — New Clause. — (Amendment as to disqualifications for receipt of benefit.) (12 Dec 1929)

Mr John Grace: Will the hon. Member explain what he means by the altered position? Are we to understand that in view of the altered position the penalty should be less than six weeks or possibly more?

Orders of the Day — Clause 10. — (Application of Unemploy- ment insurance Acts to employment abroad.) (9 Dec 1929)

Mr John Grace: I should like to point out that the right hon. Lady has not put the case of the Amendment which is before the Committee. The whole point of the Amendment is that we are anxious that Measures which are passed by the House of Commons should be made effective by the House, and not by Government Departments, and the important question of the regulations and conditions which can be attached to...

Orders of the Day — Widows', Orphans' and Old Age Contributory Pensions Bill.: Clause 1. — (Extension of right to widows' pensions.) (12 Nov 1929)

Mr John Grace: Is it in order for anybody not inside the House to make any observations?

Orders of the Day — Widows', Orphans' and Old Age Contributory Pensions Bill.: Clause 1. — (Extension of right to widows' pensions.) (11 Nov 1929)

Mr John Grace: The Government's refusal to meet this Amendment is typical of the reckless practice of the party when dealing with public funds. The Minister has had some months in which to consider this matter, and all he has done in a most arbitrary way is to select a class and not to take the slightest care to see that in that class there are no people who are not deserving of this money which belongs to...
