Orders of the Day — North Atlantic Shipping Bill.: Clause 1. — (Power to Treasury to make advances to certain companies.) (14 Mar 1934)

Mr David Mason: I am glad to find myself in this case in agreement with hon. Members opposite. I think it would be an advantage to the Treasury to accept the Amendment.

According to the former practice when the Treasury wanted to...

Orders of the Day — Shops (Sunday Trading Restriction) (Scotland) Bill. (9 Mar 1934)
