Orders of the Day — Depressed Areas (Development and Improvement) Bill.: Clause 4. — (Supplementary provisions as to smallholdings and allotments.) (13 Dec 1934)

Mr David Mason: I am saying how inadequate the Bill is to solve the problem and that in the nature of things it will not solve the problem of the thousands of men who depend on shipping and shipbuilding. Until we face the real problem and bring our minds to the real solution of it, which is the restoration of our foreign trade and the expansion of our industries, such measures as this Bill will touch only...

Orders of the Day — Clause 1. — (Appointment and Functions of Commissioners.) (6 Dec 1934)

Mr David Mason: On a point of Order. Would you be kind enough to explain how it is that you have passed over the manuscript Amendment which I handed in?

Orders of the Day — Clause 1. — (Appointment and Functions of Commissioners.) (6 Dec 1934)

Mr David Mason: On the point of Order. Your predecessor in the Chair informed me that I should be asked to explain my Amendment. May I ask how you can reconcile your Ruling with that statement?

Orders of the Day — King's Speech.: Debate on the Address. (27 Nov 1934)

Mr David Mason: I am sure that whatever may be our views, we cannot but congratulate the hon. Member for Dundee (Miss Horsbrugh) upon her confidence that everything is for the best in the best of all possible worlds. She seems to be content, and thinks that there is no fault to be found with the Government. She was very severe on my hon. Friends who in very able speeches have supported the Amendment, and...

Orders of the Day — King's Speech.: Debate on the Address. (27 Nov 1934)

Mr David Mason: Very little, I am afraid. Our accusation is that it is calculated to retard the restoration of Imperial and world trade, and, if the hon. Lady will give me her attention for a few moments, I propose to offer some suggestions which in my opinion would have the effect of restoring trade. That is the object of our Amendment. The suggestions I propose to make are non-controversial, in the sense...

Orders of the Day — King's Speech.: Debate on the Address. (27 Nov 1934)

Mr David Mason: I am glad that there is not so much difference between the hon. Lady and myself as I thought. There is indeed a great deal of common ground of agreement in the Amendment, and I hope that I shall be able to persuade the hon. Lady to support us in the Lobby.

Orders of the Day — King's Speech.: Debate on the Address. (27 Nov 1934)

Mr David Mason: No. I am afraid that the hon. and gallant Member cannot have been present during the whole of my observations. I was dealing with the question of stabilisation and I gave a quotation to show that there is a large and increasing number of people who while they may differ on questions of tariffs and quotas and restrictions of that kind, are agreed that we ought to press the Government to take...

Orders of the Day — King's Speech.: Debate on the Address. (27 Nov 1934)

Mr David Mason: I was about to show that my remarks do apply to the Amendment. My concern at the moment is to show the importance of monetary policy from the point of view of the Labour party as well as from the point of view of the capitalist.

Orders of the Day — King's Speech.: Debate on the Address. (27 Nov 1934)

Mr David Mason: I shall endeavour to follow your Ruling Mr. Deputy-Speaker. I am only making an appeal to those hon. Members above the Gangway who are in their places in the hope that it may reach their colleagues who are absent, to realise how important this question is. The value of the pound is just as important to them as to hon. Gentlemen opposite. It was Daniel Webster the great American Statesman who...

Orders of the Day — King's Speech.: Debate on the Address. (27 Nov 1934)

Mr David Mason: I do not take any exception to the interruption, and I shall endeavour with your permission, Mr. Deputy-Speaker, to answer it.

Orders of the Day — King's Speech.: Debate on the Address. (27 Nov 1934)

Mr David Mason: However great my desire to do so, it is impossible for me to accommodate everybody and obviously I must bow to your Ruling, Mr. Deputy-Speaker. I am trying to persuade the Government that it is essential for the restoration of Imperial and world trade that they should take some action on a matter which is greatly exercising the minds of many people to-day, the question of exchange...

Oral Answers to Questions — League of Nations.: Russia (Priests). (14 Nov 1934)

Mr David Mason: 10. asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he is aware that Christian priests and exiles are suffering cruelty and death in Russia; and whether, in view of the fact that Russia has joined the League of Nations and become a party to the Covenant, he will, on behalf of this country, draw the attention of Russia to the obligation contained in Article 23, section (b), to the...

Oral Answers to Questions — League of Nations.: Russia (Priests). (14 Nov 1934)

Mr David Mason: Does the right hon. Gentleman remember that yesterday he said that Russia, when she entered the League, undertook all the obligations of the Covenant?

Oral Answers to Questions — League of Nations.: Russia (Priests). (14 Nov 1934)

Mr David Mason: May I again ask the right hon. Gentleman if he will recall to his memory Article No. II of the Covenant, which states that it is the friendly right on the part of any Power to call the attention of another Power to a question of this nature?

Oral Answers to Questions — League of Nations.: Russia (Priests). (14 Nov 1934)

Mr David Mason: In view of the unsatisfactory answer to the question, I beg to give notice that I shall take the earliest opportunity to raise the matter.

Clause 21. — (Illegality of lotteries.) (13 Nov 1934)

Mr David Mason: What does the hon. Member mean by "political?"

Clause 21. — (Illegality of lotteries.) (13 Nov 1934)

Mr David Mason: We have heard the hon. Lady's speech with considerable pleasure and appreciation, and, though we may not agree with her, we must agree as to the skill, vehemence and good taste with which she delivered it, which commanded the admiration, if not the agreement, of the House. The hon. Member for South Kensington (Sir. W. Davison) who seconded the Amendment pointed out that there are many...

Clause 21. — (Illegality of lotteries.) (13 Nov 1934)

Mr David Mason: I appreciate the interruption, but I do not think it invalidates my argument. The hon. Member admits that the effect of such a policy, if carried, would lead to the deplorable state of affairs that existed in times past. The Amendment of the hon. Member advocating State lotteries was based on finance and helping the National Debt. It was soundly defeated, but was supported by an ex-Chancellor...

Clause 21. — (Illegality of lotteries.) (13 Nov 1934)

Mr David Mason: I am afraid I cannot convince the hon. Member. He evidently believes that, though he cannot make any impression on the House of Commons, he has the country behind him. It is not my business to defend the Conservative party. They have here men far abler to defend them than I am. I am one of those, a Liberal, to whom the hon. Member opposite has referred as supporting the Government. I hope...

Clause 21. — (Illegality of lotteries.) (13 Nov 1934)

Mr David Mason: The hon. Member runs away from the position. It is no use telling us, when we know the main basis of the Amendment, that that was not the reason he put it in the Amendment and appealed to the House. If he disclaims that, then for what purpose should a State lottery be held? He became very pathetic when he spoke of the pleasure that might be given to a poor creature leading a monotonous life...
