Orders of the Day — Ways and Means.: Estate Duty. (23 Apr 1923)

Lieut-Colonel Henry Stephenson: I beg to second the Amendment. This is a proposal which should have the sympathy of every taxpayer in this House. The evils of the Income Tax are sufficiently well known. One of these is the ease with which the tax is collected, which puts a premium on Government extravagance. Mr. Gladstone attributed Government extravagance to the ease with which Income Tax could be collected. To-day the...

Orders of the Day — Ways and Means. (18 Apr 1923)

Lieut-Colonel Henry Stephenson: There are one or two points which, though they may have been touched upon in this Debate, I would like, even at this late stage, to emphasise. On the occasion of last year's Budget I ventured to congratulate the right hon. Gentleman the Member for Hillhead (Sir R. Horne) on the fact that his was the first Budget after the War which did anything to remove those feelings of gloom and depression...

Oral Answers to Questions — Government Departments: Inter-Allied Debts. (22 Mar 1923)

Lieut-Colonel Henry Stephenson: 76. asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will now request the French and Italian Governments to make without delay definite arrangements for the repayment of their respective debts to this country similar to the one made by the British Government for the repayment of its debt to the United States of America; and whether he will henceforth refuse to allow the matter of the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Government Departments: Inter-Allied Debts. (22 Mar 1923)

Lieut-Colonel Henry Stephenson: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the French Government have been maintaining an army which is far larger than is required for a peace footing, that they are conducting military operations on a large scale in Germany, contrary to the wishes of their British and American Allies, and that their air force was recently described in another place as a menace to Europe? [HON. MEMBERS: "Speech!"]

Orders of the Day — Amendment of Law. ( 3 May 1922)

Lieut-Colonel Henry Stephenson: Although, unlike the right hon. Gentleman the Member for the City of London (Sir F. Banbury), I have not heard 30 Budget statements, the one made by the Chancellor of the Exchequer on Monday last was the fourth to which I have listened and it was the first which I have heard which has been in any way calculated to arrest those feelings of gloom and depression which its predecessors have done...

Orders of the Day — Safeguarding of Industries Bill. ( 7 Jun 1921)

Lieut-Colonel Henry Stephenson: I do not want to give a silent vote against the Bill or to abstain from voting without some explanation. I look on it with the utmost suspicion, and I might almost say dislike. Nothing that has happened during or since the War has in the slightest degree shaken my faith in the efficacy of Free Trade. There has been a good deal of talk to-day as to whether this is a Free Trade Debate or not,...

Orders of the Day — Government of Ireland Bill. (30 Mar 1920)

Lieut-Colonel Henry Stephenson: I ask the indulgence of the House for the first time, not because I am so presumptuous as to imagine that I can throw much fresh light on the Irish question, but because, as an old Liberal and a convinced Home Ruler, I do not like to give my usual silent vote. I have listened to the speeches for and against the Second Reading of this Bill, and although, as a Liberal, I consider that the Bill...

Lieut-Colonel Henry Stephenson: 54. asked the Prime Minister whether his attention has been called to the burden now placed on boards of guardians through the cost of relieving the wives and children of men who have deserted from the Army; and whether he will consider the advisability of such costs being borne in whole or in part by the Government?

Oral Answers to Questions — Germany (Economic Situation).: Territorial Force. ( 2 Apr 1919)

Lieut-Colonel Henry Stephenson: 77. asked the Secretary of State for War whether he will consider the advisability of resuscitating the organisation of the Territorial Force in this country on the prewar basis without delay, in order to maintain its efficiency, and of utilising the services of pre-war commanding officers who have a good record of war service, but who for various reasons may have been transferred to the...
