Orders of the Day — Representation of the People Bill: Clause I. — (Constituencies and electors.) (16 Mar 1948)

Mr Thomas Stamford: I confess I find it a little difficult to follow the argument of the hon. Member for Cheltenham (Mr. Lipson) in defence of independent representation in this House. One might agree that independent representation has its merits, but it does not seem to me necessarily to follow from that that one is committed to the view that the best way to secure that independent representation is by...

Orders of the Day — National Service Bill (1 Apr 1947)

Mr Thomas Stamford: I very much welcome the opportunity of participating in this Debate, and as I know that there are still quite a number of Members who wish to speak, I propose to cut out all unnecessary preliminaries and come at once to the few points I want to make. That, I think, is a good rule to adopt in this House, and I would like to see it more generally followed, especially by those who sit on the...

Orders of the Day — National Service Bill (1 Apr 1947)

Mr Thomas Stamford: —in the early days, when these restrictions on liberty were being imposed, gave a pledge in this House that at the end of the war all those restrictions would be removed. Today, he is supporting the Bill. I listened with great interest, as I am sure did every other hon. Member, to the speech made yesterday by my right hon. Friend the Minister of Labour. I hoped to get from it some guidance...

Orders of the Day — Land Values Tax. (6 May 1931)

Mr Thomas Stamford: The Noble Lord who has just resumed his seat has suggested that the proposals of the Chancellor of the Exchequer are designed for confiscation purposes.

This Debate has been interesting for a number of...

Orders of the Day — Land Values Tax. (6 May 1931)

Mr Thomas Stamford: At the time this speech was made, the ex-Chancellor of the Exchequer was a whole-hearted supporter of the full policy of the taxation of land values for local municipal purposes, and while the ex-Chancellor has frequently changed his political views and his political attachments since that time, this statement is just as true to-day as it was in the year 1910 when the speech was made.

Orders of the Day — Land Values Tax. (6 May 1931)

Mr Thomas Stamford: There is a quite unanswerable case to be made out for these proposals, and the case is un-answerable, because it is the universal need of man for land which is the sole source of land value. I know of no other factor which contributes to the rising value of land but the universal need of mankind for the use of land, and, after all, private ownership of land itself can confer no sort or kind...

Orders of the Day — Land Values Tax. (6 May 1931)

Mr Thomas Stamford: I am obliged, Mr. Dunnico, for your ruling. After all, there is no good in having a valuation of land unless it is intended to put it to some use, and I was merely discussing one of the possible uses to which it might be put. I was referring to the difficulties experienced by local authorities in relation to land purchase, and I was about to give an example from my own experience. When I was...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Aerial Disarmament. (7 Mar 1929)

Mr Thomas Stamford: It is not often that I address the House and I only do so to-night because of the interest I have in the subject under discussion. The Amendment which has been moved calls attention to disarmament and invites the Government to accept a certain policy in relation to it. Since I have been a Member of this House there have been a number of motions similar to this submitted to the judgment of...
