Mr John Loverseed: Is my right hon. Friend aware that a tradesman who, by mutual consent with his customers, accepted an extra farthing was recently fined £40 for so doing, and that, as a result, customers who now wish to buy commodities the price of which involves a farthing, in o many cases cannot get them unless they have that coin?

Orders of the Day — Air Training Corps (6 Mar 1945)

Mr John Loverseed: I would like to follow the hon. Member for Harborough (Mr. Tree), who raised one or two points concerning the training of pilots, and their navigational training in particular. I think I understand exactly the point he referred to. I would suggest that the fault lies not so much with the training of R.A.F. personnel as with the selection of the personnel who are posted to Transport Command. I...

Questions to Ministers (23 Feb 1945)

Mr John Loverseed: Mr. Speaker, I wish to draw attention to an inaccuracy in the OFFICIAL REPORT in the answer to a Question asked by me on Tuesday last of the Secretary of State for War.

Orders of the Day — County War Agricultural Executive Committees (6 Feb 1945)

Mr John Loverseed: I intervene because I have raised this matter on other occasions in the past, and it is one on which I feel very strongly. I feel particularly that the method of appointment of these committees is wrong. In the first place, instead of being appointed on a democratic basis they are hand-picked by the Minister. Many who are serving on these war agricultural executive committees are men who have...

Orders of the Day — County War Agricultural Executive Committees (6 Feb 1945)

Mr John Loverseed: Is not the investigation made by the same people who dispossessed them?

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture: Dispossessed Owner-Farmers (5 Oct 1944)

Mr John Loverseed: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that, in many cases, the compensation payable to the dispossessed farmer is in fact the only income which he has; and can he give some reason as to why the interest payable on arrears should be less than that which anyone can get from National Savings Certificates? Further, will he investigate a case in which a court order is existing for tithe, which is...

Orders of the Day — Aircraftman, Cairo (Home Posting) (4 Oct 1944)

Mr John Loverseed: I intervene briefly because I have from the start taken a great interest in this particular Parliament in the Middle East. I am rather sorry that my right hon. and gallant Friend the Under-Secretary of State for Air has been made the target of the attack to-night because I think it should have been directed to the War Office, who have behaved in the most blimpish manner over the whole...

Orders of the Day — War and International Situation (29 Sep 1944)

Mr John Loverseed: At this stage of the war in which our efforts have been crowned with success, I do not wish during this Debate to record a note of discord or to open up any old sores, but, nevertheless, I feel that it is necessary for us to look back well before 1939. This war is a war of atonement—atonement for the mistakes of democracies in the years before 1939. We have all in this country made...
