Oral Answers to Questions — Transport.: Monetary Policy. (7 Feb 1934)

Mr David Mason: For the convenience of the representatives of the Treasury, I beg to give notice that I shall raise this question to-night on the Motion for the Adjournment.

Monetary Policy. (7 Feb 1934)

Mr David Mason: We have had a most interesting and valuable Debate, and I am sorry to trespass on the patience of hon. Members in order to raise a question which this occasion affords the only opportunity of raising. To-day I put a question to the Chancellor of the Exchequer to the following effect: Whether he will consider the advisability of appointing a committee, with wide powers of reference, for the...

Monetary Policy. (7 Feb 1934)

Mr David Mason: The Government, surely, do not provide the cheap money. The cheap money is largely the result of the contraction of trade throughout the world.

Orders of the Day — Unemployment Bill.: Clause 6. — (Amendments as to third statutory condition.) (30 Jan 1934)

Mr David Mason: Three jobs cannot be an opportunity for employment for 6,000 men.

Orders of the Day — Newfoundland Bill. (18 Dec 1933)

Mr David Mason: I am glad, and I am sure the House must be glad, to hear from the hon. and gallant Member who has just spoken that very high testimonial to the Governor who is to be at the head of the Commission and is to carry on the work in Newfoundland. The hon. Member for Bridgeton (Mr. Maxton) regretted the fact that we shall not have much opportunity of discussing the finance of Newfoundland, but am I...

Orders of the Day — Newfoundland Bill. (18 Dec 1933)

Mr David Mason: I do not think the going off the Gold Standard in 1931 is comparable or analogous. In fact there is no analogy whatever. It was an embarrassment certainly, but it was not by any means a default. If we can restore the credit of Newfoundland, that will facilitate her ability to borrow further sums for development purposes. Reference has been made to the resources of Newfoundland. It is...

Orders of the Day — Newfoundland Bill. (18 Dec 1933)

Mr David Mason: Will the hon. Gentleman answer the point about the advances being a first charge?

Orders of the Day — Newfoundland Bill. (12 Dec 1933)

Mr David Mason: Like the hon. Member for Torquay (Mr. C. Williams), I support the Second Reading of this Bill, and I agree, after reading the very admirable report, that it is essential to carry out the obligations of the Bill. The fishery, as we know, has been the main industry, but, as the hon. Gentleman well said, there are mining and other resources which certainly would give greater security if they...

Orders of the Day — Newfoundland Bill. (12 Dec 1933)

Mr David Mason: My right hon. and gallant Friend is always thinking about the pound. The policy that I am supporting will improve the pound. I desire to see the pound improved. I desire to see a legitimate rise in prices brought about by the pursuit of the policy that I am advocating. We must lend freely. I do not suggest indiscriminate lending over the Empire or wasteful and unwise lending. Every scheme,...

Orders of the Day — Newfoundland Bill. (12 Dec 1933)

Mr David Mason: I mean the restoration of the Gold Standard, so that a bill on London is as good as a; old. If we restore London and restore specie payments—

Orders of the Day — Newfoundland Bill. (12 Dec 1933)

Mr David Mason: No. A bill on London is not as good as gold to-day, but it would not be in order to discuss that now. If we can restore London and increase the applications to London for loans from all parts of the world, it will mean that every loan that is floated in London will go out of this country in goods or services. If a loan is floated in London for an Argentine railway, it does not go out in cash....

Orders of the Day — Newfoundland Bill. (12 Dec 1933)

Mr David Mason: On that point—

Orders of the Day — Newfoundland Bill. (12 Dec 1933)

Mr David Mason: The remark about not being in order? I must admit that the remarks of the hon. Member rather stimulate me, but I do not intend to pursue that subject further, except to say that the action incorporated in this Bill will, I believe, if we continue to follow such a line, lead to our getting rid of our depression and to improving the status of the working classes, whom hon. Members above the...

Orders of the Day — Newfoundland Bill. (12 Dec 1933)

Mr David Mason: We claim that we are entitled to speak for all classes of the community. If we can help Newfound- land now, if we can carefully nurse the country, it will recoup us and will assist the development of a policy of lending freely but with discrimination, which will be of great help in getting us out of the prevailing depression. The commissioners to be appointed will, of course, be men of...

Unemployment [Money]. (11 Dec 1933)

Mr David Mason: As my name is attached to this Amendment, I rise to support it and to congratulate my hon. Friend for so vigorously defending it. We on these benches have not always found ourselves in agreement with hon. Members above the Gangway, but on this occasion we are a united opposition. The Chancellor told us earlier in the discus- sion that he proposed to move the Chairman out of the Chair and that...

Agricultural Marketing Act, 1933. (15 Nov 1933)

Mr David Mason: I had not intended to intervene in this Debate but the speech which we heard from the Minister of Agriculture would compel any- one with a sense of fairness to make some comments. We on these benches are getting a little tired of hearing——

Agricultural Marketing Act, 1933. (15 Nov 1933)

Mr David Mason: As I say we on these benches are getting a little tired of hearing repeatedly from the Minister of Agriculture and other Ministers the criticism that the speeches of my right hon. Friend the Member for Darwen (Sir H. Samuel) and other hon. and right hon. Gentlemen who sit in this part of the House are not consistent with speeches which they delivered when they were Members of the Government....

Disarmament. (13 Nov 1933)

Mr David Mason: Will the right hon. and gallant Member allow me——

Orders of the Day — EXPIRING LAWS CONTINUANCE (No. 2) BILL.: Schedule. (8 Nov 1933)

Mr David Mason: Like my hon. Friend the Member for West Middlesbrough (Mr. K. Griffith) I ask the Government why they wish to repeal this Section? The Under-Secretary told us that there were only four schemes affected by it, but even if only one scheme were affected, would not that make it worth while to retain the Section? Is it not worth while to continue these facilities if even one more man can be put...

Disarmament. (7 Nov 1933)

Mr David Mason: No.
