Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: New Clause — (Enactments relating to income tax reliefs.) (11 Jun 1934)

Mr David Mason: The Committee is indebted to the hon. Member for East Fulham (Mr. Wilmot) for a very admirable speech. He has gone into this matter very fully, and given us a number of examples to build up an unanswerable case in favour of something being done to reconcile what I think is a real injustice with regard to the position of the black-coated worker and the small Income Tax payer as compared with...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: New Clause — (Amendment to 22 Geo. 5, c. 8, s. 3.) (11 Jun 1934)

Mr David Mason: I think we must congratulate the right hon. Gentleman the Chancellor of the Exchequer on an admirable speech. Really we rejoice at the right hon. Gentleman's reply to the hon. Baronet the Member for Bournemouth (Sir H. Croft). The hon. Baronet seems to be distressed at the increase in imports. How does the hon. Baronet suggest that these imports are paid for?

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: New Clause — (Amendment to 22 Geo. 5, c. 8, s. 3.) (11 Jun 1934)

Mr David Mason: Would the hon. Baronet tell us how those goods that came into this country were paid for? Obviously they were paid for by people abroad drawing from this country goods and services.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: New Clause — (Amendment to 22 Geo. 5, c. 8, s. 3.) (11 Jun 1934)

Mr David Mason: I think I may still keep within your Ruling if I show that those figures have had an effect on employment. Obviously the more we import from abroad the more we export, and the more employment there is here. It seems impossible to convince hon. Gentlemen opposite. The Chancellor may have partially convinced them. He has said that there has been an increase in these imports, but that it has not...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: New Clause — (Amendment as, to stamp duty on loan capital.) (11 Jun 1934)

Mr David Mason: On a point of Order. I suppose you have passed over the new Clause which I have put down to provide for the setting up of a Committee of Inquiry on monetary policy?

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: New Clause — (Amendment as, to stamp duty on loan capital.) (11 Jun 1934)

Mr David Mason: Can you give me any guidance with regard to it?

Statutory Salaries (Restoration) [Money]. (29 May 1934)

Mr David Mason: I desire to emphasise what has been said by the hon. Member for Gower (Mr. D. Grenfell). It will be very reassuring if the Chancellor of the Exchequer will state specifically whether it be the case that without coming to this House again he has full power to restore the full amount of the cuts made in 1931? It will be very reassuring if he can make a statement to that effect.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill. (16 May 1934)

Mr David Mason: I should like to congratulate the hon. Gentleman the Member for Hillsborough (Mr. G. Braithwaite) upon his very thoughtful and interesting address. I do not agree with many of his arguments in favour of Protection, but I entirely agree with him as to the maintenance of sound currency. The right hon. Gentleman the Chancellor of the Exchequer's Budget must be described as a financial triumph...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill. (16 May 1934)

Mr David Mason: It was in 1929, and they reported in 1931. The point I wish to drive home is that these Committees have all been of service. They have crystallised opinion, and I would ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer to be good enough to give the request I make—it is not made by myself alone but by Members in all parts of the House—his careful consideration. While we may differ as to what should be...

Orders of the Day — Unemployment Bill.: Clause 53. — (Rules and Regulations.) (10 May 1934)

Mr David Mason: The Amendment strikes me as being very reasonable. The Sub-section states very specifically that the rules are for the purpose of "carrying out this Part of this Act."

Orders of the Day — Unemployment Bill.: Clause 53. — (Rules and Regulations.) (10 May 1934)

Mr David Mason: That is a subtle way of getting out of the difficulty. I think the position as the Amendment gives it is very proper, because it embodies the right of Parliament to approve or disapprove certain rules. It is specifically laid down that the rules are for the purpose of "carrying out this part of this Act." Surely the House of Commons is entitled to express approval or disapproval, and to palm...

Orders of the Day — Unemployment Bill.: Clause 53. — (Rules and Regulations.) (10 May 1934)

Mr David Mason: There, again, the hon. Gentleman does not do himself justice. We know that we may pray, but I compliment the Mover of this Amendment on having moved it, because this is not a party question. It is for the Whole House to consider whether we should part with our rights as a deliberative assembly in either approving or disapproving of rules drawn up in order to carry out an important Act of...

Orders of the Day — Finance [Sinking Fund of Three per Cent. Funding Loan, 1959–69]. (26 Apr 1934)

Mr David Mason: I raised this question of statutory sinking funds during the Budget Debate, but I was unable to get an answer. The Financial Secretary to the Treasury had a number of points to deal with, and probably he overlooked this question. As the last speaker has said, it seems rather extra- ordinary that an orthodox financier like the Chancellor of the Exchequer should come forward to ask us to agree...

Orders of the Day — Ways and Means.: Amendment of Law. (18 Apr 1934)

Mr David Mason: Surely the hon. Member will admit, in fairness to the Chancellor, that the proposal is a stimulus to trade?

Orders of the Day — Ways and Means.: Amendment of Law. (18 Apr 1934)

Mr David Mason: While I associate myself to a considerable extent with the remarks of the hon. Member for Central Southwark (Mr. Horobin) in his praise of that Gladstonian tradition which many of us still believe in and support, I rise to draw the attention of the Financial Secretary to the Treasury to one aspect of this Budget which has been alluded to by a number of speakers during this most interesting...

Orders of the Day — Ways and Means.: Amendment of Law. (18 Apr 1934)

Mr David Mason: The right hon. Gentleman did unquestionably say that, while our internal trade had developed, our foreign trade had not gone forward. I do not say that he used the word "languished"; he said that our foreign trade had not developed. He said that we led in the general depression among the nations of the world, but there is not much consolation in that. It simply means being first in trade that...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland.: Sunday Trading. (20 Mar 1934)

Mr David Mason: 26. asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether, in view of the generally expressed desire for an inquiry into the conditions of Sunday trading in Scotland, he will take the necessary steps to institute such an inquiry?

Orders of the Day — North Atlantic Shipping Bill.: Clause 1. — (Power to Treasury to make advances to certain companies.) (14 Mar 1934)

Mr David Mason: The hon. and gallant Member for Gainsborough (Captain Crookshank) who is an acute critic of the Government wants to cut down this sum to £4,500,000. I would remind him that this is a business proposal. I would also remind hon. Members that it is only permissive. It says: The Treasury may from time to time…advance. We must assume that the Treasury are not bereft of all reason. They are not...

Orders of the Day — North Atlantic Shipping Bill.: Clause 1. — (Power to Treasury to make advances to certain companies.) (14 Mar 1934)

Mr David Mason: The Treasury are the guardians of the public purse, and they have taken precautions in the Bill, if hon. Members will only read the passage. It says: The Treasury may from time to time on such terms as they think fit advance out of the Consolidated Fund. I think we should consider this as a business proposal. If we are prepared to go forward with it, I think it is a fair venture, we ought not...
