Orders of the Day — Tithe Bill. (19 Nov 1925)

Mr John Rawlinson: Will my hon. and learned Friend bear in mind that on page 9, line 6, there is a provision to go out?

Orders of the Day — Tithe Bill. (19 Nov 1925)

Mr John Rawlinson: Is not that Amendment to be moved on line 6? An undertaking was given earlier in the evening.

Orders of the Day — Second Schedule. (17 Nov 1925)

Mr John Rawlinson: I quite understand the technical point, and the difficulty we are in. There are very conflicting interests, and the parties are, apparently, all agreed to allow the matter to remain in statu quo for one year. Cannot the Government allow a one-Clause Bill to be introduced in another place, and with the consent of all parties, allow it to go through practically without discussion in this House?...

Orders of the Day — Expiring Laws Bill (16 Nov 1925)

Mr John Rawlinson: Might I point out to the hon. Member who has just spoken that the proper procedure in the case he states would be to put the three Bills which expire on 31st December into the Committee stage, and then insert them in the Schedule. There is no reason for delaying the Bill on that account. That could, and should be, done to-morrow, if the Government consents. I quite agree in every way with...

Orders of the Day — Criminal Justice Bill.: Clause 12. — (Provisions an to taking of depositions, and caution to and statement of accused on proceedings before examining Justices.) (16 Nov 1925)

Mr John Rawlinson: I beg to move, in page 13, line 16, at the end, to insert a new Sub-section: (9) In the event of a court of summary jurisdiction sitting in petty sessions being of opinion that the witnesses in an indictable offence about to be brought before the court are numerous, or that for other reasons the examination before them is likely to last for a long time, the court may, by order, direct that...

Orders of the Day — Criminal Justice Bill.: Clause 12. — (Provisions an to taking of depositions, and caution to and statement of accused on proceedings before examining Justices.) (16 Nov 1925)

Mr John Rawlinson: Out of courtesy to my right hon. and learned Friend, who, I know, needed sustenance of a kind other than mental, I undertook to move the Amendment. I cannot go further with the matter, but I am not quite convinced by the Home Secretary's remarks. After all, the House of Commons has to form its own opinion. The real answer to my Motion is that it would be far too expensive to carry out....

Orders of the Day — Criminal Justice Bill.: Clause 18. — (Abolition of Grand Juries at Quarter Sessions.) (16 Nov 1925)

Mr John Rawlinson: As one of the class to which the Attorney-General has referred with so much sarcasm and humour —the despised class of Recorders who sometimes have to administer criminal justice—I appeal to his better nature, and ask him to let us have a chance of a free vote on this point. I assure him that this is not a question of Conservatism or Liberalism. The split upon this question divides parties...

Orders of the Day — Teachers (Superannuation) Bill (9 Jul 1925)

Mr John Rawlinson: I would not think of speaking against this Bill. It is a most useful and desirable Bill, but I wish to make one appeal to the Government. This is a Bill of considerable importance, and the question raised by my hon. and learned Friend the Member for Moss Side (Mr. Hurst) is a very important one, and there is far more in it than would appear from the short discussion. This Bill was brought on...

Orders of the Day — LONDON COUNTY COUNCIL (MONEY) BILL. (By Order.) (25 Jun 1925)

Mr John Rawlinson: I beg to move, to leave out the word "now," and, at the end of the Question, to add the words "upon this day three months." In moving the rejection of this Bill, I ought to explain—many hon. Members will know it already—that I do so in no spirit of hostility, either to the London County Council or to this particular Bill. Every other municipal corporation, when it wishes to embark upon...

Orders of the Day — LONDON COUNTY COUNCIL (MONEY) BILL. (By Order.) (25 Jun 1925)

Mr John Rawlinson: I never in my life spoke of scrapping the trams, but my suggestion was that as they have not paid up to the present—[HON. MEMBERS: "But they have!"]— It is not desirable to spend another £1,000,000 or so, as this Bill suggests, in extending them.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: New Clause. — (Exemption of Easter offerings from Income Tax.) (22 Jun 1925)

Mr John Rawlinson: I beg to move, "That the Clause be read a Second time." I had the privilege last year of moving a new Clause in somewhat similar terms, and I had the satisfaction on that occasion of having, I think, 170 Members of the party to which I belong in the Lobby with me, and, in addition, I got the admission from the then Chancellor of the Exchequer that in the restricted form in which I am moving...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: New Clause. — (Exemption of Easter offerings from Income Tax.) (22 Jun 1925)

Mr John Rawlinson: The difficulty there is that, as it is now, a Nonconformist minister, rightly, has a contract of service at so much a year. [An HON. MEMBER: "There is no general contract."] There is certainly an arrangement as to the remuneration, and if a voluntary offering were put up after that, I should have no objection.

Orders of the Day — Tithe Bill. (18 Jun 1925)

Mr John Rawlinson: I should like to call the attention of the Government to two classes of people who certainly will be very seriously affected by this Bill. The first, the lay tithe owner, including the charitable tithe owner, has been dealt with in detail by my right Eon. Friend the Member for the English Universities (Mr. Fisher), and I do not wish to add anything to his very clear, complete, cogent and...

Orders of the Day — Tithe Bill. (18 Jun 1925)

Mr John Rawlinson: In the first five years £4 10s. will mot be deducted, but he has to make it up afterwards.

Orders of the Day — Tithe Bill. (18 Jun 1925)

Mr John Rawlinson: Only for five years.

Orders of the Day — Tithe Bill. (18 Jun 1925)

Mr John Rawlinson: Under the temporary Act he gets £109 10s.; under this Act he will get less than £100. If this Bill were not passed, he might get something like £114.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: New Clause. — (Exemption of agricultural shows from entertainments duly in certain cases.) (17 Jun 1925)

Mr John Rawlinson: May I ask with whom this arrangement was made? There are some very important new Clauses on the Paper. I, personally, was not here early this morning, and I do not know who made the arrangement.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: New Clause. — (Exemption of agricultural shows from entertainments duly in certain cases.) (17 Jun 1925)

Mr John Rawlinson: On a point of Order. I would point out the serious effect of that ruling on the rights of private Members, that when new Clauses are put down arrangements should be made to cut them out.

Orders of the Day — Guardianship of Infants Bill.: New Clause. — (Principles on which questions of religious upbringing are to be decided.) (8 Apr 1925)

Mr John Rawlinson: I have intervened because of the gross heresy which has been perpetrated from both front benches. It is the sort of heresy which one expected when the system of Standing Committees was set up. It is the sort of heresy which we were informed at the time would never be suggested in this House. My hon. Friend the, Under-Secretary tells us that this is an agreed Bill, and the hon. and learned...

Orders of the Day — Guardianship of Infants Bill.: New Clause. — (Principles on which questions of religious upbringing are to be decided.) (8 Apr 1925)

Mr John Rawlinson: The hon. Member is making it worse. A Committee of which I was not a Member. I said at the time that Standing Committees were set up, that we should be told afterwards on the Report stage, "You have nothing to do with it, because you were not on the Committee." I do not take an interest one way or the other in this Amendment, but I do protest against the suggestion that this House is going to...
