Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce.: Silk Duties. (30 Jan 1934)

Major Abraham Lyons: In view of the injurious effect that the delay has had upon the industry and employment concerned, may I ask whether a conclusion will be made of these negotiations in the very near future?

Order of the Day.: Textile Trades (Japanese Competition). (31 Jan 1934)

Major Abraham Lyons: I rise only to put before the President of the Board of Trade the fact that this plea for some reasonable protection against this attack upon our workers' standards is not made by Lancashire and Manchester cotton people alone. This unfair competition by a foreign eastern nation is striking at the very heart of our industries right through the country. Speaking on behalf of Leicester, with its...

Orders of the Day — Hotels and Restaurants Bill. (9 Feb 1934)

Major Abraham Lyons: I desire to intervene in this Debate to give my support to the movement for the rejection of this Bill, and I do so for a number of reasons, some of which I will discuss in the time I intend to detain the House. This is a private Member's Bill, and therefore one gives a vote one way or the other on a matter of this kind without regard to the support one gives to the Government, or without any...

Orders of the Day — Hotels and Restaurants Bill. (9 Feb 1934)

Major Abraham Lyons: Not Nottingham, nor the City of Leicester. It is a town where most of the hotels are thoroughly bad and decrepit. They have not modernised themselves in accordance with public ideas of up-to-date convenience, and such hotels now desire to take advantage of the proposed increased facilities for the sale of alcoholic liquor with so-called meals at hours when otherwise they would not be able to...

Orders of the Day — Hotels and Restaurants Bill. (9 Feb 1934)

Major Abraham Lyons: The hon. and learned Member is right. He has to satisfy them, but when he has satisfied them it is pro- vided that the justices shall be obliged to give this privilege. My hon. and learned Friend emphasises the point that the applicant has to satisfy the justices. How has he to satisfy them? First, that a certain percentage of his takings, irrespective of his bar takings, are in relation to...

Orders of the Day — Hotels and Restaurants Bill. (9 Feb 1934)

Major Abraham Lyons: If the hon. Member will wait I will deal with that point. I am dealing now with two or three provisions in the Bill which are, obviously, impossible as legislation.

Orders of the Day — Hotels and Restaurants Bill. (9 Feb 1934)

Major Abraham Lyons: Of course, the court has the right; they can refuse the whole thing. But what is going to happen under this Clause? The applicant can point out that he has fulfilled all the conditions and there is, therefore, every chance of the refusal being reversed. This is a very serious matter because it affects the whole of the licensing arrangements of the country and millions of people. In Clause 4,...

Orders of the Day — Hotels and Restaurants Bill. (9 Feb 1934)

Major Abraham Lyons: I am much obliged to my hon. Friend, he has completed the case I am trying to make. The recommendation of the Royal Commission was that on every table fresh drinking water should be available when liquors or refreshments are served. Where is that in the Bill? My hon. Friend did not tell the House that in the same paragraph the Royal Commission say: No commission should be received by any...

Orders of the Day — Hotels and Restaurants Bill. (9 Feb 1934)

Major Abraham Lyons: I should like to know why it is not in the Bill. The Bill has been moved and seconded in a very skilful way. Not one word has been said about these omissions from the Report of the Royal Commission. The promoters want to skate over provisions which they know would never be assented to by this House. If the payment of commission on the sale of alcoholic liquor in these hotels and restaurants...

Orders of the Day — Hotels and Restaurants Bill. (9 Feb 1934)

Major Abraham Lyons: If my hon. and learned Friend decries the theory of secret bedroom drinking I hope he will be one of the tellers on our side against the Bill.

Orders of the Day — Hotels and Restaurants Bill. (9 Feb 1934)

Major Abraham Lyons: I appreciate my hon. and learned Friend's statement. Once you take away publicity and control you do encourage secret drinking. To give to a hotel resident the right to entertain up to midnight is allowing the very possibility that none of us want to see established. After what has been said by the Mover of the rejection of the Bill I hope the House will hesitate before giving it a Second...

Orders of the Day — Hotels and Restaurants Bill. (9 Feb 1934)

Major Abraham Lyons: I said nothing of the kind. I did not suggest that anything would be done against the law. I simply gave my view of the legal position.

Orders of the Day — Hotels and Restaurants Bill. (9 Feb 1934)

Major Abraham Lyons: I am sure that, as he has said, the hon. Member does not want to misrepresent me. The whole of my expression was directed to Clause 5 of the Bill which says, in effect, that if the applicant fails in certain respects, to satisfy the justices they can still give him certain benefits which would not be available except for this Measure. Will the hon. Member therefore do me the justice of...

Orders of the Day — Hotels and Restaurants Bill. (9 Feb 1934)

Major Abraham Lyons: Clause 5.

Orders of the Day — Hotels and Restaurants Bill. (9 Feb 1934)

Major Abraham Lyons: Will the hon. Member then withdraw his statement that what I said was incorrect? If I am wrong, I want him to show where I am wrong. If I am right he ought to withdraw.

Private Business.: CARDIFF CORPORATION BILL (By Order). (14 Feb 1934)

Major Abraham Lyons: I have listened with very great interest to what was said by the hon. and gallant Member for South Cardiff (Captain A. Evans) about the city which he is so proud to represent, but upon a little examination, what he said seems a little hollow. In order to understand not only what was said on behalf of the city of Cardiff, but some of the proposals of the Bill, we have to consider them in...
