Civil Estimates, 1933.: Foreign Office. (10 Jul 1933)

Mr David Mason: The right hon. Gentleman says he would make the £ the same to-day as three years hence. Can he show us how he proposes to do it?

Civil Estimates, 1933.: Foreign Office. (10 Jul 1933)

Mr David Mason: The speech of the right hon. Gentleman the Member for Sparkbrook (Mr. Amery) was, I think, an endorsement of the speech of the right hon. Gentleman the Member for Epping (Mr. Churchill). I think that they were in agreement in regard to the policy of the President of the United States and its effects in America,. [Interruption.] I am sorry if I am interrupting hon. Members opposite—

Civil Estimates, 1933.: Foreign Office. (10 Jul 1933)

Mr David Mason: I think I can satisfy the hon. Member that although I happen at the moment to be speaking from a front bench, I come within the category to which he has referred, and, in any case, I am sure that we have all confidence in the Chair and know that this Debate will be regulated in such a manner as will lead to the most efficient expression of the opinion of the House of Commons which is what we...

Civil Estimates, 1933.: Foreign Office. (10 Jul 1933)

Mr David Mason: I was trying to appeal to the right hon. Gentleman to take the world as we find it, and we find in it speculation. I am not a supporter of excessive speculation or of gambling—God forbid—but I recognise that speculation in commodities and in stock exchange securities serves a useful end, and I ask the right hon. Gentleman opposite to be good enough to consider that statement. I hope I...

Civil Estimates, 1933.: Foreign Office. (10 Jul 1933)

Mr David Mason: I think the right hon. Gentleman agreed with the statement of the President of the United States that he sought the kind of dollar which a generation hence would have the same purchasing power as the dollar to which he hoped to attain in the near future.

Civil Estimates, 1933.: Foreign Office. (10 Jul 1933)

Mr David Mason: Well, that is a physical impossibility. How can the President of the United States guarantee, by a policy of depreciating his dollar, to maintain it at the same purchasing power? What is the dollar at which he is aiming? If he wants a fluctuating dollar, he may well get that a generation hence, if the United States is still in existence then, but I think the right hon. Gentleman the Leader of...

Civil Estimates, 1933.: Foreign Office. (10 Jul 1933)

Mr David Mason: He would like to see the £ reduced to 5s., but many of us do attach importance to this moral obligation. If you do not restore the £ to the old parity, you will be branded as a repudiator. I have often heard the right hon. and gallant Gentleman the Member for Newcastle-under-Lyme speak of the maintenance of the honour of contracts, and he must logically support me when I plead for the...

Civil Estimates, 1933.: Foreign Office. (10 Jul 1933)

Mr David Mason: It is true that during the War, when we were off the old parity certain borrowings took place at varying rates of exchange, but we should keep in mind that the wage earners and people in receipt of fixed incomes for a, long period during the inflationary period were mulcted of their fair return because of the high price of everything. I admit that the point which the right hon. and gallant...

Civil Estimates, 1933.: Foreign Office. (10 Jul 1933)

Mr David Mason: It should be the arena of morals.

Civil Estimates, 1933.: Foreign Office. (10 Jul 1933)

Mr David Mason: If the hon. Member had done me the honour of listening to my argument he would see that I was pleading for getting back to what the original contract was based on. That is all.

Mr David Mason: No.

Oral Answers to Questions — Monetary Policy. (22 Jun 1933)

Mr David Mason: Does not the hon. Gentleman think that, if the Government took action to bring about the restoration of the £ and the resumption of foreign lending, it would tend to encourage other countries to follow our example?

Civil Estimates, 1933.: Department of Health for Scotland. (22 Jun 1933)

Mr David Mason: I wish to emphasise a point touched upon by the hon. Member for Shettleston (Mr. McGovern), and originally put by the hon. Member for Hamilton (Mr. D. Graham), with reference to the benefits of the unemployed coming to an end under the National Health Insurance Act. That Act provides that persons after a period of continuous unemployment cease on 31st December to be entitled to medical...

Mr David Mason: I hope that the Financial Secretary will accept this new Clause which seems to me to be a very fair proposal.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: New Clause. — (Exchange Equalisation Account.) (1 Jun 1933)

Mr David Mason: I support the adoption of the Clause which was so admirably moved by the hon. Member for Caerphilly (Mr. M. Jones). I have an Amendment on the Paper which I believe I am right in stating will only see the light if this Clause is read the Second time. It is based upon a Clause which was put upon the Paper by two of my hon. Friends in practically the same wording, and which was so well worded...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: New Clause. — (Substitution of actual for estimated value of securities for Death Duties.) (1 Jun 1933)

Mr David Mason: I wonder if the Chancellor of the Exchequer, who seems to be in a rather complaisant mood, will not give some further consideration to this proposal. I think it worth considering whether some period such as has been suggested, say a period of six months, should not be allowed for this purpose. The option would be applicable both to the beneficiaries of the estate and to the Treasury. I agree...
