Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture.: Milk Reorganisation Scheme. (3 Apr 1933)

Viscount Lymington: 27. asked the Minister of Agriculture whether, in view of the fact that the Agricultural Marketing Bill makes no provision for the establishment of a central dairymen's board and a joint milk council with statutory powers, as recommended in the Report of the Reorganisation Commission for Milk, the Government intend to reject that part of the commission's recommendations?

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture.: Milk Reorganisation Scheme. (3 Apr 1933)

Orders of the Day — Agricultural Marketing Bill. (20 Mar 1933)

Viscount Lymington: Hear, hear!

Orders of the Day — Agricultural Marketing Bill. (20 Mar 1933)

Viscount Lymington: I am sorry at this late hour to keep the House, but at the same time I make no apology, because this Bill may be and can still be almost the great charter of agriculture. My hon. Friend the Member for East Aberdeen (Mr. Boothby) complained that there was nothing in this Bill for Scotland. I am not so much concerned with Scotland, since Scotsmen generally rule us, as for England, but there is...

Reparations and War Debts. (14 Dec 1932)

Viscount Lymington: Until the speech of my hon. Friend who has just spoken and one or two other speakers before him it seemed a little doubtful whether the Debate was about, reparations or repudiation or exculpation or exhumation. The right hon. Member for Carnarvon Boroughs (Mr. Lloyd George) praised France for facing realities. I should like to bring the Debate back to realities. Much of the Debate, as one...

Orders of the Day — Ottawa Agreements Bill.: Clause 7. — (Regulation of importation of certain frozen and chilled meat.) (1 Nov 1932)

Viscount Lymington: We have listened to the hon. Member for South-West Bethnal Green (Sir P. Harris) describing to us every single symptom which has led to our having three million unemployed to-day, through the lowering of prices, and has led to the degeneration, to a large extent, of our people. Surely the problem is a little different from that. Those of us who would gladly vote to-night for Clause 7 feel...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill. (9 May 1932)

Viscount Lymington: From half-past three to a quarter-past six this evening we heard no word of economy whatever. From the time the Debate started until the hon. Member for Loughborough (Mr. Kimball) spoke we heard very little mention of the Budget, but a great deal about inflation. The House owes a debt to the hon. Member for Loughborough in his maiden speech for bringing us back to the subject under...

Orders of the Day — Supply. (28 Apr 1932)

Viscount Lymington: Surely the hon. Member realises that the inspectors only pay visits when there are complaints.

Orders of the Day — Supply. (28 Apr 1932)

Viscount Lymington: I should like to offer my congratulations to the hon. Member for Hereford (Mr. J. P. L. Thomas) on his maiden speech. I hope that he will not stay too long or too often in the shade of his Malvern Hills, but that he will come to this House and make many more speeches, for he has shown that he already possesses the native shrewdness and native wit of his namesake and master. The hon. Member...

Orders of the Day — Supply. (28 Apr 1932)

Viscount Lymington: If that was the hon. Member's meaning, it has left an impression which ought to be corrected, for the sake of the farmers in this country. If one reads an account of cases of young ladies at a seaside resort wearing indecorous clothing, and that 25 per cent. were held to be indecorously clad, one would not therefore say that one-fifth of the women of the country are indecorously clad. Turning...

Orders of the Day — Wheat Bill. (2 Mar 1932)

Viscount Lymington: How much had it fallen in Great Britain?

Orders of the Day — Wheat Bill. (2 Mar 1932)

Viscount Lymington: And the price of bread?

Orders of the Day — Wheat Bill. (2 Mar 1932)

Viscount Lymington: May I as a next-door neighbour add my quota to the congratulations which have been extended to the hon. and gallant Member for the New Forest (Major Mills) upon his maiden speech. It has been estimated I believe that were full time allowed for all the maiden speeches which could be delivered in this Parliament, the House would be listening to such speeches until next September. I cannot help...

Orders of the Day — Wheat Bill. (2 Mar 1932)

Viscount Lymington: He is doing it almost without any right of ownership on his own land.

Orders of the Day — Imports Duties Bill.: First Schedule. — (Goods exempted from the General ad valorem Duty.) (23 Feb 1932)

Viscount Lymington: The hon. and learned Member for East Bristol (Sir S. Cripps) for a moment seemed to touch on the question of whether this is expediency or principle. The Chancellor of the Exchequer told us, in dealing with the question of putting maize into the Free List, that these matters are decided as a question of expediency and not as a question of principle. Surely, the boot in the present case is on...

Oral Answers to Questions — Imperial Airways, Limited. (11 Dec 1931)

Viscount Lymington: 5. asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air what sums have been granted to Imperial Airways, Limited, in addition to the subsidies, towards the establishment of the England-Egypt, Egypt-India, and the African routes?

Table. (30 Nov 1931)

Viscount Lymington: Some hon. Members who have taken part in this Debate have referred to the effect which this Measure is likely to have on the working-classes, It is difficult to understand if, us is alleged, this Measure is such a small one, how it can have such an effect upon the health of the people. Even from the health point of view, I believe that an unemployed man would prefer to go without his daily...

Table. (30 Nov 1931)

Viscount Lymington: Scientific farming behind tariffs.

Orders of the Day — King's Speech.: Debate on the Address. (11 Nov 1931)

Viscount Lymington: I should like to congratulate the hon. Gentleman the Member for Hemsworth (Mr. Price) upon his maiden speech. He has shown himself to be a doughty survivor of what was the great cataclysm of his party, and his speech has at least shown that not only was his success notable in the election time, but that we may hope that his future in his party in this House will be as notable in the time to...

Orders of the Day — National Economy Bill. (29 Sep 1931)

Viscount Lymington: I am glad to have the opportunity of congratulating the hon. Member on his maiden speech. I cannot help feeling that in his efforts to examine the Bill he has been far more constructive than the late Solicitor-General. I hope that in the Parliament which will reassemble sooner or later for five years we shall often have the chance of hearing his eloquence from those benches opposite. I...
