Mr Gordon Hall Caine: It is with great diffidence that I rise to address the House for the first time on this very important subject. Before I proceed, may I be allowed, as a young Member, to congratulate my fellow maiden speaker on the very excellent maiden speech he has just delivered, which, indeed, indicates that he will follow in the footsteps of his very distinguished father. The making of a maiden speech is...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Civil Services and Revenue Departments Estimates, 1924–25 (Vote on Account). (10 Mar 1924)

Mr Gordon Hall Caine: The paper trade. It was decided to put the three-shift system into operation, but, unfortunately, the effect on the paper trade, as the Minister will know, has been that that trade has found itself unable to meet foreign competition under the three-shift system, so that to-day 13.1 per cent. of the men are out of work, whereas previously the figure has been very much smaller. I want hon....

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Civil Services and Revenue Departments Estimates, 1924–25 (Vote on Account). (10 Mar 1924)

Mr Gordon Hall Caine: I am happy to answer the hon. Member's question. I understand that the big newspaper trusts of this country have been somewhat divided up during the last 24 or 36 hours, and that what was supposed to be a great newspaper trust an hour or so ago is now a divided trust. I think that that will, perhaps, help, from a paper-making point of view; at any rate, I hope it will help. I know to whom the...

Orders of the Day — First Schedule. (15 Dec 1925)

Mr Gordon Hall Caine: ; I. did not intend to intervene in this Debate, but I would say how sorry I am to see the Free Trade case going so badly that hon. Members on the Front Opposition Benches think it necessary to vilify hon. Members who have spoken or the Government Benches—

Orders of the Day — First Schedule. (15 Dec 1925)

Mr Gordon Hall Caine: At any rate, Mr. Hope, it is not my intention to use any insulting words of any Member of this House. I would just like to refer for the two moments that I shall detain the House to one or two points mentioned by the hon. Gentleman the Member for Limehouse (Mr. Attlee). He has discovered a rara avis among Protectionists. He is always telling us that hon. Members on the Government side, and...

Orders of the Day — First Schedule. (15 Dec 1925)

Mr Gordon Hall Caine: I am sorry, for I realise that the question before the House is this Amendment as to whether or not we shall reduce the 33⅓ per cent. to 5 per cent. Any business man, when it comes to the question of considering what the duty on a certain article should be, would, I suggest, do exactly what the President of the Board of Trade has done, refer the matter to an expert Committee to investigate....

Orders of the Day — Safeguarding of Industries (Customs Duties) Bill. (16 Dec 1925)

Mr Gordon Hall Caine: I should like to make one or two observations on the general Debate. In the first place, I wish to take this opportunity of thanking the right hon. Gentleman the Member for Carmarthen (Sir A. Mond), who in his speech has given me as a Protectionist a great deal of encouragement for supporting these and other duties. The right hon. Gentleman told us that there is a great movement abroad in...

Orders of the Day — Safeguarding of Industries (Customs Duties) Bill. (16 Dec 1925)

Mr Gordon Hall Caine: Yes, I do so because I believe the only way you can get universal free trade is by taking steps to protect your own industries, then you have something to bargain with, and by which you can secure Free Trade. One of the most remarkable things in Germany with regard to this duty on cutlery is the way the German industrialists are talking about it and declaring that it is going to ruin their...

Orders of the Day — Safeguarding of Industries (Customs Duties) Bill. (16 Dec 1925)

Mr Gordon Hall Caine: Yes, a bank director. In. business, there are two sources from which business men can borrow money, one is the British public and the other the banks, and from these sources we can obtain capital for new machinery. Supposing that I went to the right hon. Gentleman the Member for West Swansea as a bank director and said to him, "My business is getting in a bad way and I want to instal some new...

Orders of the Day — Safeguarding of Industries (Customs Duties) Bill. (16 Dec 1925)

Mr Gordon Hall Caine: It has been said on more than one occasion, both from the Liberal benches and from the Labour benches, that these Committees were packed, and I think the natural interpretation of that is that they were committees of partisans.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: Clause 11. — (Customs Duty on wrapping paper.) (15 Jul 1926)

Mr Gordon Hall Caine: After the very long speech on this Bill which I made on another occasion, I rather hesitate to detain the House for more than a few minutes, but as I have been somewhat criticised, both outside and, to some extent, inside the House, for statements I have made on the question of wrapping paper, I trust the House will allow me to defend those statements and to justify them if I can. I would...

Isle of Man (Customs) Bill. (27 Jul 1926)

Mr Gordon Hall Caine: If the hon. Member for South-West Bethnal Green (Mr. Harris) had not raised this point in regard to wrapping paper, I intended to have mentioned it myself. The hon. Member seems to know as little about the Isle of Man as he does about the Wrapping Paper Duty. He seems to be under the impression that the Government are forcing Protective duties upon this poor little island, to which he...

Cinematograph Films Bill. (22 Mar 1927)

Mr Gordon Hall Caine: I do not often inflict a speech on this long suffering House because I hold the view that one should either have some oratorical power or else have some intimate knowledge of the subject under discussion. I hope I may be able to contribute some little to the general knowledge of the House on the question under review. I have listened very attentively to the whole Debate, not only to-day but...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: New CLAUSE. — (Wrapping paper (exemption when used as new material for yarn).) (7 Jul 1927)

Mr Gordon Hall Caine: I do not think the right hon. Gentleman is quite fair to the concession given by the President of the Board of Trade in the deductions that he draws from it. The position in this matter is this. I have taken considerable interest in the safeguarding of wrapping paper, and the Committee will agree that I know a little bit about it. The position is quite clear. In this particular case there are...
