Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce.: Sun Life Assurance Company of Canada. (24 Oct 1935)

Mr Walter Rea: 87. asked the President of the Board of Trade whether his attention has been drawn to the fact that, according to the returns filed with the Board of Trade by the Sun Life Assurance Company of Canada, this company's assets are not based on current market values and are largely hypothecated for the benefit of foreign and Colonial policy-holders, so that the security afforded British...

Oral Answers to Questions — Public Health.: Air Attacks (Protection). (15 Jul 1935)

Mr Walter Rea: 38 and 39. asked the Home Secretary (1), the present approximate cost of providing men and women, respectively, with effective protective clothing against poison gas; (2) whether any estimates have been prepared of the cost of equipping the people of the Metropolitan area and of the country generally with gas masks and efficient protective clothing against gas attack?

London Passenger Transport (Agreement) [Money]. (21 Jun 1935)

Mr Walter Rea: I do not rise to offer any criticism of the scheme, which all my friends welcome not only in itself as a good scheme but as an evidence that the Government have now come to the conclusion that money can suitably be expended on developing schemes of this nature. I hope that we may take it that this is only the first fruits and that we may look to an extension of this policy not only in London...

London Passenger Transport (Agreement) [Money]. (21 Jun 1935)

Mr Walter Rea: I recognise that I cannot go into details. I had no intention of doing more than entering a caveat and of expressing the hope that this is a precedent which will be followed only on the most exceptional occasions.

London Passenger Transport (Agreement) [Money]. (21 Jun 1935)

Mr Walter Rea: The hon. Member does not compare the density of the population in Yorkshire with that in the Orkney and Shetlands?

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: Clause 18. — (Exemption from, and reduction of, tax in certain cases.) (19 Jun 1935)

Mr Walter Rea: May I say that we entirely concur in the arrangement, and will do our best to carry it out.

Mr Walter Rea: 45. asked the Prime Minister whether he will give instructions for the memorable series of speeches made by His Majesty during Jubilee week to be suitably printed and to be made available to Members of bath Houses of Parliament and the general public?

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport.: London (North to West Road Traffic). (28 Feb 1935)

Mr Walter Rea: 76. asked the Minister of Transport whether his attention has been drawn to the scheme published some years ago for the provision of a through north-to-west traffic way by the prolongation of Conduit Street to Berkeley Square; and whether the forthcoming opening of the extension of Curzon Street into Berkeley Square provides an opportunity for creating such a thoroughfare at a reasonable cost...

Orders of the Day — British Shipping (Assistance) Bill.: Clause 1. — (Payment of subsidy.) (20 Dec 1934)

Mr Walter Rea: I know enough about trade to appreciate the difficulties which the right hon. Gentleman is trying to get round by his proposal. Indeed they are inherent in the scheme. I pointed out some of these difficulties and dangers on the Second Beading, but I do not think that the right hon. Gentleman quite appreciates the feeling of uneasiness that there is in the Committee, particularly among those...

Orders of the Day — British Shipping (Assistance) Bill. (14 Dec 1934)

Mr Walter Rea: It requires considerable effort to break an almost complete silence that has endured for nearly 20 years in this House, so I must ask, not for the indulgence accorded to a maiden speech, but perhaps for such mercy and consideration as may be given to a demi vierge. At any rate perhaps the House will pardon me when I address it with some diffidence on this occasion, but I cannot refrain from...

Orders of the Day — British Shipping (Assistance) Bill. (14 Dec 1934)

Mr Walter Rea: That does not affect my argument, for numbers of fast steamers will be more valuable than numbers of slower steamers.

Orders of the Day — British Shipping (Assistance) Bill. (14 Dec 1934)

Mr Walter Rea: That is true, but I am sure my hon. and gallant Friend would have preferred faster boats. It is not germane to my argument, however, beyond the simple point that the cargo liner carries more cargo at a greater speed, and will therefore claim that in times of emergency it is of greater value than the tramp, and on that account should at least receive the same subsidy. I do not see how my right...

Orders of the Day — British Shipping (Assistance) Bill. (14 Dec 1934)

Mr Walter Rea: My right hon. Friend will forgive me but I did not say anything of the sort. I specifically said that the special condition which we had to consider was whether this particular subsidy was going to be a benefit to the industry or not. It was from that point of view that I was criticising it.

British North Atlantic Shipping Interests. (4 Dec 1934)

Mr Walter Rea: It must be interesting to the considerable number of ship-owners who have been pleading for assistance from the Government to-day—they are now represented only by my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Barkston Ash (Colonel Ropner)—to see in this an object lesson of the results which necessarily follow from Government control. The right hon. Gentleman professes that he has no...

British North Atlantic Shipping Interests. (4 Dec 1934)

Mr Walter Rea: The hon. Gentleman misunderstands our position.

Business of the House. (21 Nov 1934)

Mr Walter Rea: Will not they necessarily be Votes of Censure?

Orders of the Day — Incitement to Disaffection Bill.: New Clause. — (Act not to apply to a Parliamentary candidate.) (30 Oct 1934)

Mr Walter Rea: While I agree with the hon. Member for Limehouse (Mr. Attlee) that no agreement was definitely made, I feel that we have been fairly met on this occasion, and I think I am speaking for my hon. Friends here when I say that we are prepared to agree with the' suggestion made by the Parliamentary Secretary. Question, "That further consideration of the Bill, as amended in the Standing Committee,...
