Orders of the Day — Seditious and Blasphemous Teaching of Children Bill. (7 Apr 1933)

Mr David Mason: I do not often find myself in agreement politically with the hon. Baronet the Member for Barnstaple (Sir B. Peto), but I must confess that I do agree with the point that he has made in stating that many of the speeches this afternoon have not referred to the Bill at all. There is nothing in the Bill about Communism, and yet an hon. Gentleman opposite who spoke for his colleagues said that it...

Mr David Mason: Will the hon. Member for Bridgeton (Mr. Maxton) show me where it does?

Orders of the Day — Seditious and Blasphemous Teaching of Children Bill. (7 Apr 1933)

Mr David Mason: All I can say is that I heard the hon. Gentleman, who took up a great deal of our time in making fun of the authors of the Bill, in insinuating all sorts of things against their motives, and in trying to reduce the Bill to ridicule. That was a gross waste of Parliamentary time and made no impression on those of us who try to understand the Measures brought before us and judge them on their...

Orders of the Day — Trout (Scotland) Bill. (24 Mar 1933)

Mr David Mason: I rise with great pleasure to second the Second Reading of the Bill. I usually confine myself in this House to questions of high finance, and it is a delight to change to the most delightful pursuit of supporting a Bill intended to further the gentle art of trout fishing. Lord Grey of Fallodon, a great authority, says that trout fishing develops not only patience but self-control and...

Wholesale Prices. (8 Mar 1933)

Mr David Mason: With a great deal of what the last speaker has said, I am in agreement. I agree with the general principle of adherence to gold, but I cannot follow him when he refers to reflation. We hear a great deal about reflation, in the Press and elsewhere, but I have never yet been able to make out exactly what reflation means. As a general principle, I rejoice to find him so whole-hearted in his...

Wholesale Prices. (8 Mar 1933)

Mr David Mason: That is a very fair distinction, and I do not deny it. It shows that unless you have confidence the mere fact of an expansive monetary policy by increasing the circulation, which is generally described as inflation, will have no effect. It has been tried in America and was well described by Mr. Beckett, a great banker, the other day, and I submit that the whole history and experience of what...

Wholesale Prices. (8 Mar 1933)

Mr David Mason: I hope I shall be able to demonstrate to the hon. and gallant Gentleman that the policy I am advocating will have the very effect which he desires, and if I can do so I hope he will—I have no doubt he will—have the manliness and courage and good humour to admit it. We hear on all sides that this depreciated exchange is the very thing we want. Then if it is such a wonderful thing why not...

Wholesale Prices. (8 Mar 1933)

Mr David Mason: I did not say that.
