Orders of the Day — Supply.: Treasury and Subordinate Departments. (4 Jul 1934)

Mr David Mason: I hope that the hon. Gentleman the Member for East Rhondda (Mr. Mainwaring) will pardon me if I do not attempt to deal fully with his arguments, but I should like to make an appeal to him and to his colleagues above the Gangway. He argued that the whole root of the trouble and evils from which we are suffering is to be found in the capitalist system. I would remind him of what a great...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Treasury and Subordinate Departments. (4 Jul 1934)

Mr David Mason: I am discussing at present the inflation and debasement of the paper pound which can be proved at any moment by comparing the Mint price with the price you have to pay. That is the fact. That is the difference in the value of the paper currency. Your paper currency has so depreciated that you require more of it to purchase an ounce of fine gold. I do not take any exception to the interruption...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Treasury and Subordinate Departments. (4 Jul 1934)

Mr David Mason: Trade is not expanding—foreign trade is not expanding.

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Treasury and Subordinate Departments. (4 Jul 1934)

Orders of the Day — Debts Clearing Offices and Import Restrictions Reprisals Bill.: Clause 1. — (Power of Treasury in certain circumstances to set up Clearing Offices.) (26 Jun 1934)

Mr David Mason: I beg to move, in page 1, line 6, after "if," to insert: at any time prior to the first day of July, nineteen hundred and thirty-five. This Amendment seeks to limit the duration of the Bill to a period of one year. Some of my colleagues were disposed to oppose the Bill yesterday, but out of respect to the appeal of the Chancellor of the Exchequer, supported by my right hon. Friend, that it is...

Orders of the Day — Debts Clearing Offices and Import Restrictions Reprisals Bill.: Clause 2. — (Power of Board of Trade in certain circumstances to restrict imports from a foreign country.) (26 Jun 1934)

Mr David Mason: I rise to support the rejection of this Clause. It is so wide and all-embracing that it has been im- possible in the time at our disposal to have Amendments to it thoroughly discussed. Let us examine one or two points in the Clause. I observe that the President of the Board of Trade is present; his name is on the back of the Bill. Under this Clause, he will have power in certain circumstances...

Orders of the Day — Debts Clearing Offices and Import Restrictions Reprisals Bill.: Clause 4. — (Orders to be laid before Parliament.) (26 Jun 1934)

Mr David Mason: I think the right hon. Gentleman is hardly fair to my hon. Friend the Member for South-West Bethnal Green (Sir P. Harris). It is admitted that we have only had a limited period in which to discuss this Bill, which gives powers of a very wide character. The right hon. Member for Horsham (Earl Winterton) said that he was inclined to support arguments in favour of a proposal of this nature, and...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill. (22 Jun 1934)

Mr David Mason: A great deal of the discussion to-day has circled round the question whether the purpose which the Chancellor of the Exchequer has achieved has been due to industrial revival, that is to improvement in trade, or to other causes. The hon. Member for East Aberdeen (Mr. Boothby) and the hon. Gentleman the Member for Bournemouth (Sir H. Croft) attributed this surplus to the industrial revival,...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill. (22 Jun 1934)

Mr David Mason: The right hon. Gentleman will pardon me. I am sorry that I have not the OFFICIAL REPORT here. It will be within the recollection of the House, and I will try to remember precisely what he did say. I ask him to contradict me if I misrepresent him, which is' the last thing that I would wish to do. Unquestionably he said on the Second Reading that he thought or seemed to come to the conclusion...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill. (22 Jun 1934)

Mr David Mason: My hon. Friend says that that is exactly what I stated. It will serve no useful purpose to continue bandying words with the right hon. Gentleman, but I would ask hon. Members in all fairness to look up the OFFICIAL REPORT to see whether the statement which I have made is not in accordance with the facts of the case, and that the impression which the right hon. Gentleman wished to convey to...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill. (22 Jun 1934)

Mr David Mason: I would just like to read very shortly—[HON. MEMBERS: "Divide!"] The right hon. Gentleman has very courteously given way, and what I want to read is only a matter of about six lines; I hope hon. Members will do me the honour of listening. The passage to which the right hon. Gentleman referred was in the Second Heading Debate, and was as follows: In the maintenance and expansion of the home...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: New Clause. — (Repeal of 22 and 23 Geo. 5, c. 30.) (18 Jun 1934)

Mr David Mason: There is one aspect of this question which I would like to put to the Chancellor of the Exchequer. He was very severe on the hon. Member for Dewsbury (Mr. Rea), the hon. Baronet the Member for South-West Bethnal Green (Sir P. Harris) and the hon. and learned Gentleman who led the Opposition. If I heard him aright, he said the annuities amounted to some £14,500,000 and that we had recovered...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: New Clause. — (Repeal of 22 and 23 Geo. 5, c. 30.) (18 Jun 1934)

Mr David Mason: The Speaker is quite capable of keeping me in order. The hon. Member for Horncastle is alive to the true inwardness of the situation. He wants the duties kept on in order to help the livestock industry in this country, to increase the prices of cattle, and thereby benefit the industry, in which he is interested. It is a fallacy for the Chancellor of the Exchequer to suggest that he is...

Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Navy.: Sunday Observance. (13 Jun 1934)

Mr David Mason: Can the Minister inform the House what his idea is of satisfaction, and can he give us some guidance as to how he will be satisfied?
