Debate on the Address. (21 Nov 1933)

Major Abraham Lyons: I am much obliged to the hon. Member. I thought that I had not, perhaps, appreciated his remark quite correctly. The Bill to which he refers was not, however, a Bill limited to compulsory workmen's compensation insurance. The Workmen's Compensation Act is a very important Measure. A worker in this country is entitled to protection, and to the valuable benefits under the Act; but I have seen...

Private Business.: Clause 71. — (By-laws as to advertisements.) (27 Jul 1933)

Major Abraham Lyons: I beg to second the Amendment. It has been fairly and forcibly moved by the hon. Member for South Croydon (Mr. H. Williams).

Private Business.: Clause 71. — (By-laws as to advertisements.) (27 Jul 1933)

Major Abraham Lyons: I am very much indebted to my hon. Friend for that interpolation. It comes at an extremely odd juncture from one who has been so assiduous, and rightly assiduous, in this House in getting for his borough a grant from national funds because the people of Salford are not in a position to meet their responsibilities, possibly through their own lack of good management. I should like to know how...

Private Business.: Clause 71. — (By-laws as to advertisements.) (27 Jul 1933)

Major Abraham Lyons: If this Bill is to have any effect there will be a. complete department of the local authority set up to consider, inspect and supervise all proposed advertisements. There will be an official with a staff, and local authorities do not hesitate to have a staff of good size, because it is paid for by the ratepayers, who have little control over the engagements. This staff will consider every...

Private Business.: Clause 71. — (By-laws as to advertisements.) (27 Jul 1933)

Major Abraham Lyons: My right hon. and gallant Friend has rightly called attention to a, matter which which I must deal, and I hope I have not given the impression that I was trying to keep back anything which might put a different complexion on the matter. But as I understand this Clause, while it is true that the local authority will have to submit to the Home Office and the Home Office will have to approve or...

Private Business.: Clause 71. — (By-laws as to advertisements.) (27 Jul 1933)

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce.: Tariff Boards (Canada and Australia). (19 Jul 1933)

Major Abraham Lyons: Is it not a fact that trade after trade in this country is complaining to-day, and rightly, of material manufactured in the Dominions coming here under cost of production, over which our Tariff Board has no check of any kind, and is that in keeping with the spirit of the Agreement?

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce.: Imported Typewriters. (18 Jul 1933)

Major Abraham Lyons: While thanking the hon. Gentleman for his reply, may I ask him whether it is not the fact that the great difference which has occurred in the rate of exchange between this country and America was not taken into account by the Committee in fixing the duty; and whether the devaluation of the American exchange does not wipe out the main material benefit which the typewriter trade had at its...
