Orders of the Day — RHYL URBAN DISTRICT COUNCIL BILL (By Order). (30 Apr 1935)

Major Abraham Lyons: I beg to second the Amendment. In a sentence or two I would like to add one or two observations. Section 50, which is the first to which my hon. and learned Friend made reference, goes a great deal wider, in my judgment, than is necessary for the protection of the amenities about which this Bill is introduced, because it provides that: In any case in which the forecourt of any premises...

Orders of the Day — Ways and Means.: Amendment as to Relief in Respect Oflife Insurance Premiums. (1 May 1935)

Major Abraham Lyons: I should like, on behalf of many interests in my constituency, to support what has been said by my hon. Friend the Member for South Croydon (Mr. H. Williams) in giving a general welcome to this Resolution. There is no doubt that we did turn over in this country from a system of free imports to a system of control of imports with remarkable smoothness. Most of us who are Protectionists always...

Orders of the Day — Housing Bill.: Clause 2. — (Definition of overcrowding.) (20 May 1935)

Major Abraham Lyons: Having listened to the whole Debate since the Amendment was moved with characteristic force by the right hon. Member for Wakefield (Mr. Greenwood), I am impressed with the seriousness of certain considerations that arise from it. The hon. Member who has just spoken has said what so many feel on this side of the House—that we and the country owe a debt of gratitude to the Minister of Health...

Orders of the Day — Housing Bill.: Clause 2. — (Definition of overcrowding.) (20 May 1935)

Major Abraham Lyons: I do not think that any one, whatever he may think of the amenities of bungalow residences or of the advantages of some ground-floor tenancies, can dispose of the matter as readily as that, and say, "It is all very well to sleep in a bungalow and on the ground floor and, therefore, there is nothing wrong in sleeping in a kitchen." Of course there is nothing wrong in sleeping on the ground...

Orders of the Day — Private Business.: LONDON BUILDING ACT (AMENDMENT) BILL [Lords] (By Order). (26 Jun 1935)

Major Abraham Lyons: I am perfectly certain that every hon. Member who has intervened in this Debate has done so without any party bias, and I think it is right to say that those of us who oppose this Measure believe that this is not a matter which can be confined to a consideration of London interests only, but because the question is one of more fundamental importance. The Bill proposes to introduce a new class...

Orders of the Day — HALIFAX EXTENSION BILL [Lords] (By Order). (3 Jul 1935)

Major Abraham Lyons: Unlike my hon. Friend the Member for Stone (Sir J. Lamb), I hope that the Instruction will not have the effect of preventing the Bill from going to a Committee. I have no doubt that my hon. Friends who have moved and supported the Instruction put to the House the whole case that they could in its favour, but it appeared to me that the case which they made indicated that it was essential that...

Orders of the Day — HALIFAX EXTENSION BILL [Lords] (By Order). (3 Jul 1935)

Major Abraham Lyons: It does not adjoin, but, if there is any dividing line between Hipperholme and Halifax, Hipperholme, just the same as any of the other areas sought to be taken in by Halifax, is within the ecclesiastical parish of Halifax. Some 16 days were occupied in Committee in another place in the consideration of the Bill, and all interested parties were heard. I think the position really is that the...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill. (5 Jul 1935)

Major Abraham Lyons: I feel sure that I express the view of almost every hon. Member when I say that the whole country is thankful to the Chancellor of the Exchequer for this Finance Bill and congratulates him in a Measure which reasserts to the world that confidence which this country has enjoyed in the past and will enjoy in the future. I do not think there has ever been introduced a Finance Bill which has...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill. (5 Jul 1935)

Major Abraham Lyons: Is it not a fact that of the number the hon. Member has just quoted as being the additional number on poor law relief, all but about 10,000 are already counted as receiving unemployment benefit, and that it is a false and misleading statement to say that 500,000 more people are on poor law relief? The hon. Member has counted in the total at least 90 per cent. of the people who are getting...
