Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: I also desire to support the proposed new Clause which seems to have every argument in common sense to commend it to the Chancellor of the Exchequer. I put it to the Chancellor, now that he has seen the working of this absurd and ridiculous tax, and has seen the injury it does to British film, he should withdraw it. The protective argument has always been in favour of taxing the manufactured...

Orders of the Day — Clause 10. — (Continuation and amendment of Part I. of Safeguarding of Industries Act, 1921, 11 and 12 Geo. 5, c. 47.) (6 Jul 1926)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: I beg to move to leave out the Clause. This Clause seeks to reimpose, with modifications and for a period of 10 years, Part 1 of the Safeguarding of Industries Act. I hope the Chancellor of the Exchequer will continue to favour us with his presence, because on the Committee stage he left the whole defence to the President of the Board of Trade. I see that he flees from the wrath to come. On...

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

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: I had not intended taking any part in the discussion on this question until the straw-paper Amendment was reached, but when we come to that Amendment we shall probably take a silent vote, and therefore I rise now to put the case for the other side.

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: I beg to second the Amendment. This instrument, whose Third Reading we are discussing to-day, raises altogether approximately £825,000,000 of revenue, and it can be regarded from two points of view. It can be regarded from the point of view of the total amount which it is proposed to raise, or from the point of view of the incidence of that amount upon the taxpayers of the country. During...

Orders of the Day — Schedule. (29 Jul 1926)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: I do not rise to delay the Committee coming to a decision, but I do want to say on behalf of those who, like myself, intend to support this Amendment in the Division Lobby if it is pressed to a Division, that if the second Amendment on the Paper were in order, we should have let this Amendment go and voted for the second one. As the second Amendment is out of order I shall support the first...
