Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: New Clause. — (Super-tax on undistributed income of certain companies.) (27 Jun 1922)

Lieut-Colonel Francis Willey: This Clause has been discussed at considerable length and sufficient has been said to impress Members of the Committee with the many difficulties that may arise in connection with it. As has been said by the last speaker, it is of great importance and it is causing apprehension to the trading community as a whole. For this reason, I had hoped that the Chancellor would have promised some...

Orders of the Day — Class Ii.: Board of Trade. (11 May 1922)

Lieut-Colonel Francis Willey: I am sure the House will have appreciated fully the peculiarly lucid statement of the President of the Board of Trade. I think it is good that the House should be informed accurately on the points with which he is qualified to deal from his experience. Representing, as I do, a constituency which is very closely associated with the textile trade, I feel particularly grateful that the...

Orders of the Day — Consolidated Fund (Appropriation — No. 2) BILL.: Exchequer Bonds and External Debt. (9 Nov 1921)

Lieut-Colonel Francis Willey: An outstanding remark of the hon. Member who has just sat down was that most political problems can be solved by the outpouring of public money, and in connection with the review to which we have just listened of the extremely interesting statement of the Chancellor of the Exchequer, with regard to the financial position of the country, I think a good many of us will be impressed with the...

Can he give any indication whether Poland will be assisted to receive that rolling stock from Germany?

Orders of the Day — King's Speech.: Unemployment. (17 Feb 1921)

Lieut-Colonel Francis Willey: The Minister of Labour in his reply outlined the steps which the Government are taking to meet the existing situation. All those steps involve considerable expenditure and necessarily larger taxation, and I associate myself with the apprehensions expressed as to the taxation necessary to meet this expenditure. I also associate myself with the remarks of the hon. Member for Manchester which...

Orders of the Day — Ireland.: Murders and Reprisals. (24 Nov 1920)

Lieut-Colonel Francis Willey: There are two points I should like to make in this Debate. The Chief Secretary laid emphasis on the important effect of events in Ireland on American public opinion, and perhaps, as one who through long residence in the States has had the opportunity of close association, particularly among the democratic party in the States, who are familiar with the articulate expression of opinion such as...

Orders of the Day — Ireland.: Murders and Reprisals. (24 Nov 1920)

Lieut-Colonel Francis Willey: My desire was to make it clear that the Commonwealth forces were used properly to restore order.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill. (12 Jul 1920)

Lieut-Colonel Francis Willey: Judging from the speeches which have been made in this Debate, one would have little hesitation in assuming that the majority of those who have spoken were strong supporters of the Amendment. One notable exception was the hon. Member for Blackley (Mr. Briggs). I am in complete disagreement with the remarks which he made in support of the tax, but, never the less, he struck a note with which I...

Orders of the Day — Overseas Trade (Credits and Insurance) Bill. (29 Jun 1920)

Lieut-Colonel Francis Willey: Unquestionably firms of strong credit who wish to do business with any of the countries in the Schedule to the Bill can obtain the necessary credit from their bankers to enable them to do that, if they like to take the risk of long credits which it involves, but the money is lent to them not upon the wisdom or justification of the foreign trade, but upon the strength of their own name....

Orders of the Day — San Remo Conference.: Profiteering (Amendment) Bill. (29 Apr 1920)

Lieut-Colonel Francis Willey: The outstanding feature in the speech of the right hon. Gentleman (Sir R. Home) was the stress which he laid on Clause 1. I think that his persuasive, sympathetic manner in inviting co-operation on the part of the trader will do very much to spread among traders, anyhow in the larger industries which are at present being subject to the Clauses of this Bill, a greater inclination to co-operate...

Orders of the Day — San Remo Conference.: Profiteering (Amendment) Bill. (29 Apr 1920)

Lieut-Colonel Francis Willey: I did not wish to convey that there was any objection to investigation. That was not the point I desired to make. I said I saw no object in prosecuting investigations in sectional trades, and that that could not obviously assist the consumer. On the contrary I agree with you and I support the Bill. Something is necessary, but I do object to waste of time when nothing can be accomplished, not...

Oral Answers to Questions — Clothing (Cost). (31 Mar 1920)

Lieut-Colonel Francis Willey: 62. asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is aware that unrest is developing as a result of the high cost of clothing; that this is only in part due to the high cost of cloth, but that prices of cloth could most effectually be reduced by increased imports; and if, to facilitate this by putting idle machinery on the Continent of Europe to work, he will recommend Governmental...

Orders of the Day — Premium Bonds. (1 Dec 1919)

Lieut-Colonel Francis Willey: The Noble Lord who has just spoken made the statement that an investor is not a speculator, and that a speculator is not an investor, but I think any examination of the motives behind those who invest money in different issues would show that very often there is the desire on the part of those who invest to enrich themselves, whether the investments be Government or otherwise. The enormous...

Oral Answers to Questions — Port Congestion (Transit Sheds). (7 Aug 1919)

Lieut-Colonel Francis Willey: 93. asked the President of the Board of Trade when de finite sanction can be given for the erection of supplementary transit sheds at internal points, with a view to relieving congestion of merchandise at the ports; if any sites have yet been settled upon; and, if not, what advice is being taken with regard to their selection?
