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

Mr David Mason: I agree that there are points of criticism. I do not deny that there are many subjects which ought to have been left out of the Bill and many which ought to htve been put into it. I decline to support the suggestion, after we have already been over the ground, that there has been any case made out for State lotteries, that we should again spend our time arguing the matter. I hope that the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Fiscal Policy. (12 Nov 1934)

Mr David Mason: In view of the fact that the President of the Board of Trade has informed us that there is a large increase in the number of those employed, will the Prime Minister consider very carefully whether any alteration is necessary on the lines suggested?

Orders of the Day — BETTING AND LOTTERIES BILL [Lords]: Clause 20. — (Offences in connection with lotteries.) (7 Nov 1934)

Mr David Mason: The hon. Member for South Kensington (Sir W. Davison) is very active on this subject. We know he is in favour of lotteries, and that explains why he is active in trying to find fault with the Bill. The Clause is clear to the common sense of the Committee as a whole, and the Division Lobby will show that very soon. Why the hon. Member for South Kensington should go over the ground again and...

Orders of the Day — BETTING AND LOTTERIES BILL [Lords]: Clause 20. — (Offences in connection with lotteries.) (7 Nov 1934)

Mr David Mason: I imagine that you Mr. Deputy-Chairman are quite capable of keeping order without the assistance of the hon. Member. I am not making any innuendoes. I am making definite assertions and I think I can see by his face that the right hon. Gentleman himself admits that they are true. Otherwise he is quite capable of defending himself and he does not require the assistance of the hon. Member for...

Orders of the Day — Cattle Industry (Emergenc Provisions) Bill. (24 Jul 1934)

Mr David Mason: If the hon. Member had followed my remarks on that occasion he would have heard me say distinctly that I was in favour of a direct subsidy, if it could be shown, as the Minister had not shown, that the industry was bankrupt. I was in favour of a direct subsidy, but not one with a financial memorandum which implied that a levy was to follow.

Orders of the Day — Cattle Industry (Emergency Provisions) Bill.: Clause 1. — (Establishment of, and payments to, Cattle Fund.) (23 Jul 1934)

Mr David Mason: I should be glad if the Minister would explain the two Memoranda which have been issued. Sub-section (2) of this Clause merely states: The Treasury may, during the financial year ending the thirty-first day of March, nineteen hundred and thirty-five, make, out of the Consolidated Fund of the United Kingdom or the growing produce thereof, advances to the Cattle Fund not exceeding in the...

Orders of the Day — Cattle Industry (Emergency Provisions) Bill.: Clause 2. — (Payments out of Cattle Fund to producers of cattle.) (23 Jul 1934)

Mr David Mason: The suggestion of the hon. Member for East Fulham (Mr. Wilmot) would be an admirable one if it were practicable, but I rather agree with the hon. and learned Member for Down (Mr. D. Reid) that it is impossible to be sure that the actual sale will be carried out by the producer. The animal which is being sold may have been passed on to another party and the holder of the animal at the time of...

Orders of the Day — Cattle Industry (Emergency Provisions) Bill. (19 Jul 1934)

Mr David Mason: I should like to congratulate the hon. and learned Member for East Bristol (Sir S. Cripps) on his vigorous denunciation of this Bill. I do not often find myself in agreement with the hon. and learned Gentleman, and I do not entirely agree with all that he has just stated. I do not think that the only alternative is Socialism. I think that there are other alternatives. With that exception, I...

Orders of the Day — Cattle Industry (Emergency Provisions) Bill. (19 Jul 1934)

Mr David Mason: I referred to that fact. I was present and heard every word on that occasion. I have said that the right hon. Gentleman referred to the fact that he had dealt with the matter on the Financial Resolution and that he did not wish to go over the ground again. It is necessary to go over the ground again. There may be many hon. Members who were not present on that occasion, and as this is the...

Orders of the Day — Cattle Industry (Emergency Provisions) Bill. (19 Jul 1934)

Mr David Mason: The right hon. Gentleman says that the policy was extremely successful. What was the reason why it was extremely successful? Because this House so impressed the Chancellor of the Exchequer that he agreed to an Amendment limiting the Bill to two years.

Orders of the Day — Cattle Industry (Emergency Provisions) Bill. (19 Jul 1934)

Mr David Mason: This House carried an Amendment of that kind, at a time when Germany was retaliating by threatening to bring in another Bill, and we had the spectacle of two civilised nations bringing in Bills to stop each other's trade. I have great respect for the right hon. Gentle- man's intelligence. Does he imagine that the average Britisher or the average German does not understand that if Measures are...

Orders of the Day — Cattle Industry (Emergency Provisions) Bill. (19 Jul 1934)

Mr David Mason: I am sorry. I was trying to show that the Government do not seem to understand these matters. Hon. Members may say to me: "If you object to this policy, what are your alternatives? Have you any suggestions to make" I have no right to stand here and attack the Government without offering some possible alternative, but it is not our particular responsibility to do that. Our duty is, more or...

Orders of the Day — Cattle Industry (Emergency Provisions) Bill. (19 Jul 1934)
