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.

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.
