Orders of the Day — Government of India Bill.: Clause 33. — (Annual Financial State- ment). (12 Mar 1935)

Mr Arthur Steel-Maitland: May I say, briefiy, why I think it might be wise if the Amendment were not pressed. It is perfectly true, as my Noble Friend has said, that the occasions when this matter might come up might be occasions of acute friction. I can well imagine that in circumstances like that no possible good could be served by the matter being left obscure. If there is friction then that is just the type of...

Orders of the Day — Government of India Bill.: Clause 38. — (Rules of Procedure.) (12 Mar 1935)

Mr Arthur Steel-Maitland: Is it not a precedent which has actually been set by the presence here of North of Ireland Members, of which no one thinks of complaining?

Orders of the Day — Government of India Bill.: Clause 12. — (Special responsibilities of Governor-General.) (5 Mar 1935)

Mr Arthur Steel-Maitland: I have been roused by some of the remarks of the hon. Member for Caerphilly (Mr. Morgan Jones). I can only say, incidentally and in passing, how glad we are to know of the hon. Member's new-found care for the stability of the credit of India. We sincerely hope that in the months and years to come the value of good credit, which hon. Members opposite recognise so freely with regard to India,...

Orders of the Day — Government of India Bill.: Clause 12. — (Special responsibilities of Governor-General.) (5 Mar 1935)

Mr Arthur Steel-Maitland: That was the hon. Member's other point, and I am going to deal with it. No one wishes, least of all myself, to say that there is any lack of individual ability in India. There is not. But it is true that at the outset there must be a lack of collective experience, and everyone in this Committee knows perfectly well how much we in this country in all parties owe to the collective experience...

Orders of the Day — Government of India Bill.: Clause 10. — (other provisions as to ministers.) (28 Feb 1935)

Mr Arthur Steel-Maitland: I have risen only to correct one misapprehension which perhaps the Committee might have gathered from the speech of my hon. Friend the Member for Oxford University (Sir C. Oman). It is true that, in the United States, ministers in charge of departments not only do not have to be members of either House of Congress, but they are not able to appear before it. The result is most unsatisfactory...

Orders of the Day — Government of India Bill.: Clause 12. — (Special responsibilities of Governor-General.) (28 Feb 1935)

Mr Arthur Steel-Maitland: What the Under-Secretary has said with regard to stopping the spread of epidemics and taking immediate action is very important, and is satisfactory. It is clear that such action can be taken under the item in List 3 to which he referred. I think, however, that some of us would be glad if the provision for health could be more specific, and not merely covered by the sections dealing generally...

Clause 6. — (Accession of Indian States). (26 Feb 1935)

Mr Arthur Steel-Maitland: I should like to ask one simple question—whether these limitations and conditions that may be asked for apply simply to subjects in List 1 or also to List 3, the concurrent list?

Orders of the Day — Government of India Bill.: Clause 5. — (Proclamation of Federation of India.) (20 Feb 1935)

Mr Arthur Steel-Maitland: I too will try to follow the rule, both in the spirit and the letter, of being quite brief. I wish to address myself simply to the Amendment and to do so from the ordinary, matter of fact standpoint of asking what would actually happen if such a Council of Greater India were brought into existence as is proposed in the Amendment. From that point of view, I think it would be wise to contrast...

Orders of the Day — Government of India Bill.: Clause 5. — (Proclamation of Federation of India.) (20 Feb 1935)

Mr Arthur Steel-Maitland: Is it not generally considered without question that the majority in Bengal is Moslem?

Orders of the Day — Government of India Bill.: Clause 5. — (Proclamation of Federation of India.) (20 Feb 1935)

Mr Arthur Steel-Maitland: May I point out that under Clause 272 that may be done at any time without waiting for the expiry of five years?

Orders of the Day — Government of India Bill.: Clause 3. — (The Governor-General of India and His Majesty's Representa tive as regards relations with Indian States.) (19 Feb 1935)

Mr Arthur Steel-Maitland: May I add one word on behalf of common sense? As a great deal may depend on what the Princes in India decide a week hence, and as we have been told that the quite slight difference between the Select Committee's Report and the terms of the Bill may weigh, is it not just as well that the Princes should know to what decision this House has come, and whether there is to be a Federation or a...

Orders of the Day — Government of India Bill.: Clause 5. — (Proclamation, of Federation of India.) (19 Feb 1935)

Mr Arthur Steel-Maitland: Would the Noble Lady speak a little louder so that we can hear?

Orders of the Day — King's Speech.: Debate on the Address. (26 Nov 1934)

Mr Arthur Steel-Maitland: Should it be to get honour?

Orders of the Day — King's Speech.: Debate on the Address. (26 Nov 1934)

Mr Arthur Steel-Maitland: I want in the few minutes that remain not to deal with criticisms, but to make one constructive suggestion which I believe would do a great deal of good and which I hope the Government will include in their programme. The speeches in the Debate have largely turned on the well-known fact of poverty in the midst of plenty. The hon. Member for Limehouse (Mr. Attlee) and others who have followed...

Orders of the Day — King's Speech.: Debate on the Address. (21 Nov 1934)

Mr Arthur Steel-Maitland: All those receiving public assistance are required to register, so that more names will appear on the register.

Orders of the Day — King's Speech.: Debate on the Address. (21 Nov 1934)

Mr Arthur Steel-Maitland: I have never made that statement. I have always recognised the fact to an increasing degree, and now practically in entirety, that in the case of those receiving relief, the heads of families are required to register before relief is given. I have never refused to acknowledge that.

Orders of the Day — King's Speech.: Debate on the Address. (21 Nov 1934)

Mr Arthur Steel-Maitland: May I ask the hon. Gentleman the course of the export coal trade in this country and the course of the export coal trade in other countries which export coal on any substantial scale? Can he give us those figures? They would prove whether we have not done well, or whether we have done well. It is a comparison with the coal trade of the world which is essential, and not merely the years.

Depressed Areas. (14 Nov 1934)

Mr Arthur Steel-Maitland: I understand that an hon. Member from one of the distressed areas is to follow me, and I am not going to stand between him and his subject, but I wish to remove a misunderstanding which may exist in the mind of the right hon. Gentleman the Member for Bow and Bromley (Mr. Lansbury) and which, at any rate, he has conveyed to the House about transference. The right hon. Gentleman to-day...

Depressed Areas. (14 Nov 1934)

Mr Arthur Steel-Maitland: I am not concerned with that particular instance, but with the policy as a, whole. I should be quite willing to deal with the point, but I do not want to take up the time of the House for more than a few minutes. The policy as a whole was to take those areas where unemployment was comparatively small, and there to give a proportion of jobs to men from areas where unemployment was disastrously...

Orders of the Day — Foreign Affairs. (14 Mar 1934)

Mr Arthur Steel-Maitland: I am sure everyone has listened with intense interest to the speech of the right hon. Gentleman the Member for Epping (Mr. Churchill). I find myself in agreement with some of the remarks which he has made, but, while he spoke with his usual eloquence and wit, some of his other remarks left me wondering. I wonder whether the right hon. Gentleman himself has faced certain facts which enter into...
