Orders of the Day — Export Guarantees Bill: Clause 3. — (Financial provisions.) (8 Feb 1945)

Lieut-Colonel Sir William Wayland: I congratulate the Government upon the Bill. As one connected with the export trade, I can say that it will be a very great benefit, especially to those who are not possessed of very much capital.

Lieut-Colonel Sir William Wayland: I have been asked, on behalf of local authorities, to support this Amendment because they claim that they ought to be able to borrow in whatever quarter they can, whether from Government or outside sources.

Orders of the Day — Licensing Planning (Temporary Provisions) Bill: Clause 11. — (Regulations.) (6 Feb 1945)

Lieut-Colonel Sir William Wayland: I shall certainly oppose the Amendment. It is very unfair. It says that no person indirectly having a financial interest should become a member of the committee. You can press the word "indirectly" right up to the point where, if a man had a pint of beer a day, he would be indirectly interested in the drink question. I am of the same opinion as my hon. Friend the Member for Farnham (Mr. G....

Lieut-Colonel Sir William Wayland: May I add a few words in a special appeal for the devastated areas of the South coast, where the position has been worse than it is in many towns in the interior, which have been blitzed?
