Orders of the Day — Clause 1. — (Supplementary allowances.) (5 Nov 1943)

Major Abraham Lyons: I merely want, if I may, to endorse the views that have been expressed by the hon. Gentleman opposite on this novelty in legislation.

Clause 1. — (Licences for authorizing regulation of disposal of stocks.) (5 Nov 1943)

Major Abraham Lyons: That is what I was doing. I understand that these words "or otherwise" are put in to extend the number of persons who would come within the purview of this Bill.
