Orders of the Day — ASSURANCE COMPANIES (WINDING UP) BILL [Lords]. (25 Jul 1935)

Mr Aled Roberts: I feel that it would be a pity if, from the report of this debate, the public gained the impression that the present Bill will give them any more security than they have at present. It will not. I agree that it is desirable that the Board of Trade should have these additional powers, but they will only enable the Board of Trade to wind up an insolvent company a little sooner than it could...

Oral Answers to Questions — Land Valuation Office, Wrexham. (23 Jul 1935)

Mr Aled Roberts: 37. asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether he has considered the representations from local authorities in Denbighshire and Flintshire protesting against the removal of the land valuation office from Wrexham; and whether, having regard to the inconvenience which will result to the public and the strong feeling against the transfer of Welsh business to an English centre, he is...

Oral Answers to Questions — Land Valuation Office, Wrexham. (23 Jul 1935)

Mr Aled Roberts: Will the Financial Secretary be prepared to receive further representations with regard to some portions of the district?

Civil Estimates, 1935.: Ministry of Transport. (3 Jun 1935)

Mr Aled Roberts: In introducing the Vote, the Minister touched on almost every department of activity of his Ministry. They were extremely interesting, and it is very difficult to avoid the temptation of commenting upon the lot. The first question that the Minister mentioned was that of electricity. I had no intention at all of dealing with the question of electricity this afternoon, but the hon. Member for...

Oral Answers to Questions — Coal Industry.: Greseord Colliery. (28 Feb 1935)

Mr Aled Roberts: 64. asked the Secretary for Mines whether he can make a statement as to the progress made in the special training of rescue workers to undertake recovery operations at Gresford Colliery; and when these operations are likely to be commenced?

Orders of the Day — Electricity (Supply) Bill.: Clause 4. — (Supply of electricity by Centrol Electricity Board to railway companies.) (20 Dec 1934)

Mr Aled Roberts: I would like to join in the congratulations to the Minister on the Very good-tempered way in which he has carried through the discussions on a highly technical Measure. He has, as he admitted himself, done his best to meet all the legitimate Amendments which have been put forward. He expressed himself in regard to one which I attempted to move, and I hope that, although he was not able to...

Orders of the Day — Electricity (Supply) Bill.: Clause 3. — (Amendment of s. 12 of Electricity (Supply) Act, 1926.) (5 Dec 1934)

Mr Aled Roberts: I beg to move, in page 4, line 40, at the end, to add: Provided also that the provisions of this sub-section shall not come into operation in the area to which the North-West England and North Wales Electricity Scheme, 1928, relates unless and until— (a) at least one existing or new generating station in the portion of that area which is situate in North Wales is a selected station; or(b)...

Orders of the Day — Electricity (Supply) Bill.: Clause 3. — (Amendment of s. 12 of Electricity (Supply) Act, 1926.) (5 Dec 1934)

Mr Aled Roberts: The last thing I would like is that the Minister should think we are a, lot of illogical people and that he really cannot understand the object of this Amendment. I tried to make it clear and perhaps I may make it a little clearer still. It is a great mistake to mix up the North Wales Power Company with the people of North Wales. The North Wales Power Company is the North Wales Power Company....

Orders of the Day — Electricity (Supply) Bill. (29 Nov 1934)

Mr Aled Roberts: I thought the speech of the Minister of Transport in introducing this Bill was a very clear and very fair statement of the reasons underlying it, though perhaps I may be inclined to regard his speech the more favourably because I agree with it. I feel that to enact Clause 1 by means of a general Bill of this character, and so avoid so many private Bills dealing with the same point, is a...

Civil Estimates and Supplementary Estimates, 1934.: Clause 9. — (Avoidance of restriction on scope of policies covering third-party risks.) (26 Jul 1934)

Mr Aled Roberts: This seems to me vary much more than a drafting Amendment. It certainly only makes a change in the wording, but the effect to increase the premiums to about four or five hundred thousand motor cyclists. We had a lot of discussion in Committee, and the Minister then could see quite clearly that there were some further directions in which there were loopholes and that insurance companies or...

Orders of the Day — Road Traffic Bill.: Clause 1. — (General speed limit of thirty miles per hour in built-up areas.) (28 Jun 1934)

Mr Aled Roberts: May I ask the Minister if he will clear up one or two points? I have a distinct recollection of making a suggestion in Committee up-stairs during the discussion on sign posts and the definition of "built-up area," and I remember that the Minister turned down the suggestion I made, because he said it would be very confusing if you used too many signs. He gave the classic example of the Great...

Orders of the Day — Road Traffic Bill.: Clause 1. — (General speed limit of thirty miles per hour in built-up areas.) (28 Jun 1934)

Mr Aled Roberts: On a point of Order. I wanted to say something on this Amendment. I tried to catch your eye before the Question was put.

Orders of the Day — Debts Clearing Offices and Import Restrictions Reprisals Bill.: Clause 2. — (Power of Board of Trade in certain circumstances to restrict imports from a foreign country.) (26 Jun 1934)

Mr Aled Roberts: I beg to move, in page 4, line 4, to leave out "or are about to be." This is a very curious phrase to appear in a Bill of this kind. The discussions have so far been of the greatest precision. We have dealt with abstruse points and each point has been cleared up or not, as the case may be. When we come to this Clause—which the Chancellor of the Exchequer tells us is not necessary in...

Orders of the Day — British Sugar (Subsidy) Bill.: Clause 2. — (Rates of subsidy.) (25 Jun 1934)

Mr Aled Roberts: I beg to move, in page 1, line 20, to leave out "the same rate as," and to insert: half the rate that would have been payable. Not more than half-an-hour ago the Minister of Agriculture took great credit to himself for proposing an Amendment which, he said, clearly explained itself, and I think we also can take some credit that the words of this Amendment explain clearly what is in our minds....

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: New Clause. — (Reduction of duties on certain classes of mechanically propelled vehicles.) (12 Jun 1934)

Mr Aled Roberts: I had not intended to intervene but to leave it to my hon. Friend, but when the Minister tells us that there is no analogy at all between the proposals we ask the Committee to consider and the remission of taxation on private motor cars already given effect to, I think he is really stretching the point a little too far. I read with care an hour ago the exact words of the Chancellor of the...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: New Clause — (Amendment to 22 Geo. 5, c. 8, s. 3.) (11 Jun 1934)

Mr Aled Roberts: Looking casually at the wording of this proposed new Clause, it seems harmless enough. It almost seems as though one who is not entirely enamoured of the system of import duties could accept it with pleasure, because many of us believe that, the more you examine the effect of tariffs upon employment, the more sure you are not to get any more tariffs. But, having heard the explanation of the...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: New Clause — (Amendment to 22 Geo. 5, c. 8, s. 3.) (11 Jun 1934)

Mr Aled Roberts: Merely because one wonders why, if these instructions have not always been carried out, it is necessary to draw the attention of the Committee to them now. All these cases that are submitted to the Tariff Advisory Committee, as far as one can judge from their reports and recommendations, have taken into consideration every relevant factor. It does not require me to remind a National...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: New Clause — (Amendment to 22 Geo. 5, c. 8, s. 3.) (11 Jun 1934)

Mr Aled Roberts: I will leave that argument, though I should very much like to develop it. The object of the Clause seems to be that, if the Tariff Advisory Committee were given this instruction, they would be able to consider the effect on employment in the case of every duty or every restriction that they recommend. If they gave the fullest consideration to this fact every time they came to recommend a duty...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: New Clause — (Amendment to 22 Geo. 5, c. 8, s. 3.) (11 Jun 1934)

Mr Aled Roberts: What I said was that employment had been reduced, and it is employment that we are considering in this Clause. I made the statement that unemployment had gone up there, and I believe that to be a true statement. [HON. MEMBERS: "No!"] The figures will show.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: New Clause — (Amendment to 22 Geo. 5, c. 8, s. 3.) (11 Jun 1934)

Mr Aled Roberts: I do not know the figures. All I know is that a member of the Financial Committee of the Liverpool Council, who ought to know what he is talking about, told me the other day that the amount the city of Liverpool had to find in additional rates for unemployment in the port of Liverpool ran into several thousands of pounds a week.
