Orders of the Day — London Passenger Transport (Agreement) Bill. (27 Jun 1935)

Mr David Mason: The Leader of the Opposition cheers that, and I hope he will support me in making my protest, seeing that the Chancellor has said that his action in entering into this liability and pledging the credit of the taxpayers of this country for £40,000,000 is due to his artificial policy of perpetuating cheap money, paper money. I do not suggest that if we had a sound financial system it would...

Orders of the Day — London Passenger Transport (Agreement) Bill. (27 Jun 1935)

Mr David Mason: In the event of default what steps will be taken to see that the rights of those concerned—the rights of foreclosure—are maintained? There is no mention of that in the Agreement.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: New Clause. — (Amendment of 10 & 11 Geo. 5, c. 18, s. 3.) (24 Jun 1935)

Mr David Mason: On a point of Order. Will you give a Ruling why the Clause standing in my name (Annual account of Exchange Equalisation Account) is not called? Your predecessor very kindly said he would give a Ruling. Perhaps you do not care to do so, but there are many Members of all parties who desire to have a discussion on this subject, and if you could see your way to give a Ruling, it would be of interest.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: New Clause. — (Amendment of 10 & 11 Geo. 5, c. 18, s. 3.) (24 Jun 1935)

Mr David Mason: Do I understand that if the Clause were drawn otherwise, it might be accepted on the Report stage?

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: Clause 16. — (Income Tax for 1935–36.) (19 Jun 1935)

Mr David Mason: I was very much impressed by what was said by the hon. Member for Huddersfield (Mr. Mabane), who opened this Debate. Surely he did not mean to convey to the Committee that on the present Budget the Chancellor of the Exchequer could reduce the Income Tax by 6d. in the £? He is aware that that would mean a loss of some £25,000,000 to the revenue, and that the right hon. Gentleman would not be...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: Clause 16. — (Income Tax for 1935–36.) (19 Jun 1935)

Mr David Mason: That is purely hypothetical, and I do not think we can pursue the matter any further. I was also much interested in what was said by the hon. Member for East Fulham (Mr. Wilmot) with regard to the hardship of continuing a high rate of Income Tax. He seemed to argue that there was a benefit in spending money, that it meant an increase of employment. If that argument were carried to a logical...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: Clause 16. — (Income Tax for 1935–36.) (19 Jun 1935)

Mr David Mason: The hon. Member says "Hear, hear," but where does he suggest these unlimited sums would come from?

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: Clause 16. — (Income Tax for 1935–36.) (19 Jun 1935)

Mr David Mason: I thank my hon. Friend for his reply. I am equally anxious to develop the earth, but in order to do that we must have regard to our taxation. If we can, by wise administration and due economy, reduce the burdens of industry, we shall get more out of the earth and our industries will be profitable. The taxation of this country has gone up from over £3 per head before the War to over £15...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: Clause 16. — (Income Tax for 1935–36.) (19 Jun 1935)

Mr David Mason: We are discussing the question of bringing down the Income Tax, and I think you will agree, Captain Bourne, that that depends on our expenditure, and that if we can reduce our expenditure it will be possible to accept the Amendment. That is my argument and my answer to the hon. Member for Dumbarton Burghs (Mr. Kirkwood).

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: Clause 16. — (Income Tax for 1935–36.) (19 Jun 1935)

Mr David Mason: If I may return to the argument of my hon. Friend who moved this Amendment, I would say that if we could bring about a state of affairs which would enable us to reduce the Income Tax, I would welcome it and would be prepared to go into the Lobby with him in order to bring about that happy result. I suggest to the hon. Member and to the hon. Member for East Fulham, however, that neither of the...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: Clause 20. — (Deduction in respect of children.) (19 Jun 1935)

Mr David Mason: I hope that the Chancellor will favourably consider this very modest request. It will help those who are deserving of it. The fair and modest way in which the hon. Members put their case should appeal to the right hon. Gentleman. It is not a great concession to ask. It is a long time since the right hon. Gentleman has made any concessions. I have supported the Chancellor, at times in...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: Clause 26. — (Power to issue new securities in, lieu of Local Loans stock.) (19 Jun 1935)

Mr David Mason: Owing to the lateness of the hour, I shall not move this Amendment, but shall raise the matter on the Report stage.

Oral Answers to Questions — Lausanne Agreement. (18 Jun 1935)

Mr David Mason: Is there any prospect of the right hon. Gentleman renewing the operations of the new Sinking Fund during the current year?

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: Clause 1. — (Amendments as to Entertainments Duty.) (18 Jun 1935)

Mr David Mason: I feel sure that if my hon. Friends who moved the Amendment would cut out the part relating to sporting contests and exhibitions, the Chancellor of the Exchequer would have no difficulty in accepting this very admirable Amendment. Everyone, I am sure, will agree that, to whatever party we belong, we all want football and cricket. The tribute paid by the hon. Member for Torquay (Mr. C....

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill. (21 May 1935)

Mr David Mason: For exports, not for imports.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill. (21 May 1935)

Mr David Mason: The right hon. Gentleman has spoken this afternoon with a complacency that has never been equalled from that bench. He has replied to various points that have been submitted, but he has not replied to the very admirable survey of my hon. Friend the Member for Orkney and Shetland (Sir R. Hamilton), whose speech he referred to as a series of platitudes. I will recall to the House the points...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill. (21 May 1935)

Mr David Mason: I do not want to be drawn into a long discussion on what has happened during the last hundred years. What I was discussing was the remark of the Chancellor of the Exchequer to my right hon. Friend as to what he would do if returned to power to-morrow. The answer is that of course he would not bring in a free trade system at once. No one, having regard to the investment of capital and to the...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill. (21 May 1935)

Mr David Mason: The effects are the same.
