Orders of the Day — Protection of Animals Bill.: Coal Mines (Minimum Wage) Act (1912) Amendment Bill. (20 Apr 1934)

Major Abraham Lyons: I offer no apology for intervening in this debate. A matter of this nature, irrespective of what may be thought by hon. Members opposite, affects a good many others besides those who represent mining divisions. My hon. Friend the Member for West Bromwich (Mr. A. Ramsay) said that he had sympathy with those who worked in mines. I want to endorse that statement and to say, further, that anyone...

Orders of the Day — Unemployment Bill.: Clause 39. — (Persons to whom, and circumstances in which, allowances may be granted.) (9 May 1934)

Major Abraham Lyons: My hon. Friend said, just before he resumed his seat, that the Debate was not unreal. I am afraid that, since he gave the House the benefit of his observations, that remark has no longer applied. A more unreal argument on this important matter I cannot conceive. We heard, by way of passing observations, that some mysterious force was behind the Government and created the crisis. I believe...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: New Clause. — (Amendment as to rebate on certain hydrocarbon oils.) (18 Jun 1934)

Major Abraham Lyons: I wish to add my appeal to that of the hon. Member for Melton (Mr. Everard) in asking for this concession. With my hon. Friend who has just sat down, I do not desire to dissent, except to say that when he tells us dictators are air-minded, I would say not so much air-minded as hot air-minded. It has long been felt that aviation is suffering to-day from a serious and inequitable burden in...

Orders of the Day — Incitement to Disaffection Bill. (2 Nov 1934)

Major Abraham Lyons: ; The Prime Minister has dealt with one aspect of the speech made by the hon. and gallant Member for South-East Leeds (Major Milner). When the Bill was introduced, the Attorney General stated that this was a Measure of a serious nature. It is a pity that there has been no attempt to relate the criticisms to the Bill and that so many people have lost their sense of perspective. Those who seek...

Orders of the Day — Incitement to Disaffection Bill. (2 Nov 1934)

Major Abraham Lyons: I know that my hon. and gallant Friend wants to be fair about this matter. In my view, at that moment no opposition at all could have developed, because that was the first speech ever made in this House about the Bill. It was the speech, at the inception of the Bill, made by the Attorney-General, who introduced it, and, in the course of the discussion on the Bill, he said that here at any...

Major Abraham Lyons: I say without fear of contradiction that those resolutions were machine-made—

Orders of the Day — Incitement to Disaffection Bill. (2 Nov 1934)

Major Abraham Lyons: The resolutions sent by more than half-a-dozen persons claiming to have trade union authority or, when they came from adult school movements, people who, I know, are good, honest, sincere citizens who did not desire to be misled or seduced. When responsible bodies are made use of in a matter such as this, it behoves some of us to see what is the truth and get to the bottom of the instigation....

Orders of the Day — Incitement to Disaffection Bill. (2 Nov 1934)

Major Abraham Lyons: I am coming to that in a moment. Let me say that the possession of a document is made no offence under this Bill. It has to be shown—and shown by the prosecution—that it exists for the express purpose of seducing troops from allegiance to the Crown in order to make it an offence. Any Government, whatever its colour or complexion, would be bound to regard it As a very serious offence for...

Orders of the Day — Incitement to Disaffection Bill. (2 Nov 1934)

Major Abraham Lyons: I trust them implicitly, but they are entitled to be protected against the danger against which the Bill aims. They are entitled to be free from the possibility and nuisance of this pestilential contamination.
