Ballot for Notices of Motions.: Agricultural Policy. (29 Oct 1929)

Mr Robin Turton: I beg to give notice that, to-morrow fortnight, I shall call attention to the failure of His Majesty's Government to produce an agricultural policy, and move a Resolution.

Orders of the Day — Poor Prisoners' Defence Bill. (8 Nov 1929)

Mr Robin Turton: I beg to move "That the Bill be now read a Second time." I wish first to make an appeal to hon. Members that this Bill shall not suffer through the Parliamentary inexperience of its introducer, and that hon. Members in all quarters of the House will give it their sympathetic consideration. No hon. Member will deny that it is the great aim of English justice that, however poor he may be, no...

Orders of the Day — Poor Prisoners' Defence Bill. (8 Nov 1929)

Mr Robin Turton: I am afraid I must in form the hon. Member that the point of an appeal from the court of summary jurisdiction was included in a former Bill. This is just a first instalment Bill, and it was found that it could not be included in the Measure.

Oral Answers to Questions — Ottoman Loan. (12 Feb 1930)

Mr Robin Turton: 7. asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether his attention has been drawn to the proposal of the Turkish Government to abstain from payment of interest on the Ottoman Loan for a period of five yea as in defiance of the agreement the Turkish Government concluded with the bondholders in February, 1928; and whether he will make representations to the Turkish Government, in...

Oral Answers to Questions — Ottoman Loan. (12 Feb 1930)

Mr Robin Turton: Will the right hon. Gentleman state whether the rumoured proposal of the Turkish Government is a result of advice from the Secretary of State for War?

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture.: Land Drainage, North Yorkshire. (17 Feb 1930)

Mr Robin Turton: 56. asked the Minister of Agriculture whether his attention has been drawn to the need for better land drainage in the 4,000 acres of land leased by the Crown Lands Commissioners between the rivers Ure and Swale, in the North Riding of Yorkshire; whether ho will inquire into the drainage conditions of this area; and whether he will make

Orders of the Day — ROAD TRAFFIC BILL [Lords]. (18 Feb 1930)

Mr Robin Turton: I wish to draw attention to one or two points in the Bill. What is the reason for the speed limit in the case of passenger-carrying vehicles with pneumatic tyres? My constituency borders on the Great North Road. It is the sincere desire of every one on the Great North Road to reduce the danger from these heavy vehicles, which are passing by from day to day at 50 miles an hour. If you have a...

Road Traffic [Money]. (20 Feb 1930)

Mr Robin Turton: I am rather incredulous about the need for this large amount of £165,000, which I understand will all go into increases in the staff of officials. There are 12 traffic areas and that is allowing over £13,000 for each area. The Minister mentioned a small increase in the staff of Whitehall. What does he mean by a small increase? If he can give us some figure showing what will be the increase...

Orders of the Day — Poor Prisoners' Defence Bill.: Clause 1. — (Defence of poor persons committed for trial.) (2 May 1930)

Mr Robin Turton: I hope the Committee will not agree to accept the Amendment. The hon. Member for Wirral (Mr. Grace) has defined this Amendment as giving legal aid in all cases to the prisoner in the court below, but I think it would be wise for the Committee to remember that if the Amendment were carried and Clause 1 (1) then read: Any person charged with an indictable offence there would still be the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture (Government Policy). (27 May 1930)

Mr Robin Turton: 60. asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he has received a copy of a resolution unanimously passed by a mass meeting of farmers, farm labourers, and landowners on 17th May at Easingwold, Yorkshire, claiming that measures should be taken to assure the farmer a remunerative price for cereals; and whether he is able to give any assurance that such measures will figure in his agricultural policy?

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture (Government Policy). (27 May 1930)

Mr Robin Turton: Will a guaranteed price figure in the right hon. Gentleman's policy, when introduced?

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture (Government Policy). (27 May 1930)

Mr Robin Turton: 61. asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he has received the resolution of the agricultural mass meeting held on 17th May at Easingwold, Yorkshire, requesting that he will receive a deputation, representing all the agricultural interests, to lay before him the serious condition of the industry in that neighbourhood; and what reply he has given to this request?

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: Clause 29. — (Estate Duty where property of deceased has been transferred to private company.) (1 Jul 1930)

Mr Robin Turton: I hope that the Attorney-General will not only look at the Income Tax law, but also at the general law of the land, with regard to these words. In answer to my hon. Friend the Member for Farnham (Mr. A. M. Samuel), he said that these words have a legal meaning, but there was a case some time ago in which the words were "whether directly or indirectly interested," and the judge in that case...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: Clause 29. — (Estate Duty where property of deceased has been transferred to private company.) (1 Jul 1930)

Mr Robin Turton: I want to direct the attention of the Attorney-General to the actual effect of the Amendment. The first, material word is the word "holding." This word has been used for at least 200 years in agricultural Acts to define the specific action in which you look after land in order to work it. In a long sequence of Agricultural Holdings Acts the word "holding" has been defined as meaning the land...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: Clause 29. — (Estate Duty where property of deceased has been transferred to private company.) (1 Jul 1930)

Mr Robin Turton: May I ask the learned Attorney-General the question I asked earlier in the evening—whether he is now in a position to reply as to whether a holding in this Clause is different from a holding under the Agricultural Holdings Act? What is his interpretation of the word "holding"? It is a very material point.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: Postponed Clause 29. — (Estate Duty where property of deceased has been transferred to private company.) (2 Jul 1930)

Mr Robin Turton: I do not think that the explanation of the Financial Secretary quite covers the whole point of the Amendment to the proposed Amendment. It is true that for the purpose of the fraction you must deduct a like amount from the numerator and the denominator, but there is a third point, that of adjudicating as to what amount of money is deemed to come in the benefit. So far as I understand the...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: Postponed Clause 29. — (Estate Duty where property of deceased has been transferred to private company.) (2 Jul 1930)

Mr Robin Turton: The Attorney, General has given an explanation covering to some extent paragraph (i) and even paragraph (iii) of this Amendment, but, so far as I understand the explanation, it does not cover paragraph (ii) and paragraph (iv). His explanation is that we are here comparing the benefit which the deceased has received with the fund of money available for distribution, and he explained that...

Postponed Clause 30. — (Estate duty where life-interest is transferred to private company.) (2 Jul 1930)

Mr Robin Turton: I ask the Attorney-General to reconsider these words, "periodical payment." They occur in the Apportionment Act, 1870, and in that Act they were duly considered and explained in the High Court by Lord Chancellor Selborne, who held that "periodical payment" must be a payment which was purely periodical, that is to say, made at fixed times on some antecedent obligation, and not made at variable...

Oral Answers to Questions — Unemployment.: Water Supply Scheme, Malton (Loan). (9 Jul 1930)

Mr Robin Turton: 84. asked the Minister of Labour whether she is aware that the approved grant to the Mahon Rural District Council of interest on the Joan raised to carry out the street villages water supply scheme has been diminished by one-half from what was promised in April last; and whether he will reconsider the present decision of the Unemployment Grants Committee, which will result in the jeopardy of...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: New Clause. — (Assessment of agricultural property for the purposes of death and estate duties.) (9 Jul 1930)

Mr Robin Turton: I have not heard in the speech of the Financial Secretary, or in that of the hon. Member for Dumbarton Burghs (Mr. Kirkwood), any justification for the present basis of valuation for Estate Duty of agricultural land. It is the value that a commissioner puts on as being what it will fetch in the open market. The Financial Secretary talked a great deal about amenity value. It is not a question...
