Captain Hon.

Inadequate Defences of Great Britain and the Empire from Foreign Attacks. (7 Feb 1934)

Captain Hon. John Loder: I beg to move, in line 1, to leave out from "while" to the end of the Question, and to add instead thereof: determined to pursue a course which will adequately safeguard this country's industrial, political, and national existence, and being anxious to co-operate in a general policy of peace and disarmament, considers that it is inexpedient to adopt any Resolution which might prejudice the...

Inadequate Defences of Great Britain and the Empire from Foreign Attacks. (7 Feb 1934)

Captain Hon. John Loder: In the air we should achieve parity with all the other great forces, a parity which we can only achieve to-day by a very substantial building programme. I believe that we are in a position of greater inferiority in the air than with any other arm, but for the moment it is our business to try to level down and not to level up. There are two roads by which security—which is the main theme of...

Inadequate Defences of Great Britain and the Empire from Foreign Attacks. (7 Feb 1934)

Captain Hon. John Loder: It was not the policy of the monarchs, but the policy of the countries. My hon. and gallant Friend must not read more into my argument than I was putting there. The fact is that under a system of competing armaments, some one country thinks that it has a chance of trying to lord it over all the others. We say that more can be done by the method of international agreement, and that we have...

Orders of the Day — Russian Goods (Import Prohibition) Bill. (5 Apr 1933)

Captain Hon. John Loder: I am sure that the House is in general agreement with a large proportion of the speech of the right hon. Gentleman the Member for Darwen (Sir H. Samuel). I am rather glad that he has raised the point which he emphasised although I am not quite sure that I agree with that point for the same reasons as those which he has put forward. I think it is quite clear from the speech of the Foreign...

Orders of the Day — Russian Goods (Import Prohibition) Bill. (5 Apr 1933)

Captain Hon. John Loder: If they are now on bail, of course they have greater freedom, but what use is their freedom when they cannot arrange their defence, because they do not know the charges on which they are going to be arraigned? I do not hold the view which some hon. Members on my side hold that it is wrong to trade with Russia. On the contrary, I have always held that we ought to trade with Russia, and I have...

Orders of the Day — Sunday Entertainments Bill: New Clause. — (Provisions as to Cinematograph Fund.) (29 Jul 1932)

Captain Hon. John Loder: I rise principally to challenge one or two remarks which fell from the hon. Member for the Scotland Division of Liverpool (Mr. Logan). He seemed to suggest that this proposal was simply an effort on the part of several busybodies to interfere with the legitimate activities of the film industry. I do not think that he has any justification for making such a remark. This is not a proposal to...

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance.: Estimates (Memoranda). (28 Feb 1929)

Captain Hon. John Loder: 44. asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will consider the advisability of issuing this year, and also in future, a memorandum explanatory of the Civil Estimates and Estimates for Revenue Departments (Vote on Account) similar to those issued with the Army, Navy, and Air Force Estimates?

Orders of the Day — Clause 2. — (Amount of Bark of England Note Issue.) (22 May 1928)

Captain Hon. John Loder: I beg to move, in page 2, line 41, to leave out the word "the" and to insert instead thereof the word "an." Although we have had a long discussion upon the question of the limits of the fiduciary note issue, we do not scent to have reached agenerally satisfactory conclusion. I hope the Government will see their way either to meet the numerous appeals which were made during the Committee stage...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce.: Safeguarding of Industries. (21 May 1928)

Captain Hon. John Loder: 60. asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether His Majesty's Customs were consulted by the Committee which investigated the application of the hosiery industry for safeguarding as to the feasibility of differentiating hosiery, chief value cotton, from ether hosiery imports?

Supply. (10 May 1928)

Captain Hon. John Loder: It is a little difficult to switch one's mind from one of the newest of the great countries of the world to one of the oldest, but it is to Egypt to which I wish to direct my remarks. The Government, I feel sure, will be grateful for the support they have received from the right hon. Gentleman. He has given almost complete support to the Government. I am not quite sure that we on this side do...

Orders of the Day — Hours of Industrial Employ Ment Bill. (30 Apr 1926)

Captain Hon. John Loder: I fancy that there is really less difference of opinion between the great majority of Members on all sides of the House on this question than might at first eight appear to be the case to anyone who has followed this Debate. But, after all, our points of view, according to the side on which we sit, must necessarily vary on an occasion like this. Hon. Members opposite are anxious to urge,...

Orders of the Day — Prevention of Unemployment Bill. (5 Mar 1926)

Captain Hon. John Loder: It is significant that, although we have seen this Bill introduced this year and last year and a somewhat similar Bill is 1923, we saw nothing of it while the party opposite was in power in 1924, and I feel that hon. Members opposite cannot be quite certain that the remedies which they propose in this Bill will be quite so effective as they like to say. At the same time, the speeches to which...

Orders of the Day — Prevention of Unemployment Bill. (5 Mar 1926)

Captain Hon. John Loder: Not a Board such as this Bill suggests. If we are to deal with this and other problems efficiently, Eon. Members must not think that, if we set up a Committee, we have created machinery which can necessarily solve the problem. It may be that even the Ministry of Labour might be improved. I have often wondered whether it would not be a good thing for the Ministry of Labour to administer the...

Orders of the Day — Prevention of Unemployment Bill. (5 Mar 1926)

Captain Hon. John Loder: I do not question the earnestness or sincerity which inspires their ideals. I fully appreciate the intensity of the emotions which may well be aroused amongst those who live their lives in contact with what I willingly admit to be the worst side of our civilisation. What I submit is that it is not by lifting up their eyes unto the hills of legislation that they will find any real help. From a...

Oral Answers to Questions — League of Nations.: Composition of Council. (1 Mar 1926)

Captain Hon. John Loder: 64. asked the Prime Minister whether his attention has been drawn to a Resolution unanimously adopted by the First Assembly of the League of Nations on the 7th December, 1920, laying it down that when a member of the League of Nations Council votes he does so not in a personal capacity, but specifically in the name of the country he represents.; and whether, in view of the national...

Oral Answers to Questions — Turkey.: British Embassy. (10 Feb 1926)

Captain Hon. John Loder: Will the right hon. Gentleman consider the advisability of a member of the Embassy staff being stationed at Angola?

Orders of the Day — Safeguarding of Industries (Customs Duties) Bill. (9 Dec 1925)

Captain Hon. John Loder: I am very glad to be allowed to follow the right hon. Gentleman the Member for Oxford University (Lord H. Cecil), because so much that he has said, with all the lucidity and force of this learning and experience, is what: I had felt haltingly, I would like to say myself. Mine is also the point of view of a Government supporter, who proposes to support this Bill, and as one of those who is...

Oral Answers to Questions — Nyasaland.: Portuguese East Africa (Native Migration). (23 Nov 1925)

Captain Hon. John Loder: 39. asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he has any information regarding the migration of natives from Portuguese East Africa into adjacent British territories?

Orders of the Day — Hours of Industrial Employment Bill. (1 May 1925)

Captain Hon. John Loder: I believe that I am voicing the opinion of a large number of Members of the House when I say that although I cannot see my way to support this Bill, I am very largely in sympathy with the Convention which the Bill is trying to implement. Although I feel that no good purpose would be served by passing this Bill, I would like hon. Members opposite to be quite clear that my opposition has...
