Hague Conference. (26 Jul 1922)

Captain John Jameson: The speech to which we have just listened is an instance of the unfortunate habit of conceiving beforehand what your opponent is going to say, composing your line of criticism upon what you expect and hope is going to be the line of his speech, and then firing it off. Of course the result, in such a case, of your own speech, depends on whether your opponent has actually said what you hoped...

Orders of the Day — Criminal Law Amendment Bill. (25 Jul 1922)

Captain John Jameson: I do not think the House has been impressed by the arguments of the Home Secretary. What is the Report stage of a Bill for if it be not to complete and render symmetrical the measures brought before it? As for the excuse that this is not the right opportunity to put straight the errors of omission in the Bill, I submit that if there be an error of omission, such as is clear from the arguments...

Orders of the Day — Ireland.: Irish Office, etc. (26 Jun 1922)

Captain John Jameson: The incidents which the hon. and gallant Member has just narrated, and which arouse feelings of horror in our hearts, are the natural result of the sad and terrible conditions of savagery, cruelty and barbarism of which from time to time, and in very sparing quantities, we are allowed by the Press to hear as occurring in the neighbouring country of Ireland. The pity they arouse it us for the...

Orders of the Day — Ways and Means.: Amendment of Law. (2 May 1922)

Captain John Jameson: This House is always pleased to hear again the refrain of waste, and it always comes better from the hon. Member who has just sat down than from anyone else, because he is one of the very few anti-wasters who ever condescend to concrete proposals of economy, and he does not only speak against waste, but he votes against it as well. In the matter of economising and in the case of the...

Orders of the Day — Ways and Means.: Amendment of Law. (2 May 1922)

Captain John Jameson: I was quoting my correspondent. I am not taking any responsibility for what he said. He, evidently, was of that opinion. It is the duty of any hon. Member to suggest other methods of raising revenue if the Chancellor of the Exchequer makes up his mind to further diminish indirect taxation. I have pleaded before, and I renew my suggestion now, that a great deal of money might be brought in by...

Orders of the Day — Ways and Means.: Amendment of Law. (2 May 1922)

Captain John Jameson: I beg pardon. That is the figure. I misread it. In the year 1909–10 the number of incomes above £100,000 a year was 65, and the figures for 1919–20 show that the number of incomes above £100,000 a year had increased to 148. The number has gone down since then, but it is still very large, and much in excess of what it was in 1914. The reason for that is that vast fortunes were made...

Orders of the Day — Rating of Machinery Bill. (28 Apr 1922)

Captain John Jameson: If I rise at this hour after a long discussion, it is not because of the intrinsic attractiveness of the problem of the rating of machinery or of the human interest with which the subject palpitates, but is because, in the first place, as a Scottish Member, I feel it my duty to relieve in some degree the apprehensions which have been expressed by the right hon. Member for Norwich (Mr. G....

Orders of the Day — Rating of Machinery Bill. (28 Apr 1922)

Captain John Jameson: No, it is the English Bill about which I am talking. We in Scotland delivered ourselves from the meshes of these nets, and the provision has prospered so much with us that we want to extend its benefits to the sister country.

Orders of the Day — Rating of Machinery Bill. (28 Apr 1922)

Captain John Jameson: I am not standing in the way. There is a good deal of time before us. Why should this special form of personalty be singled out for this method of treatment? A house, as some hon. Members have said, is not much good without such things as tables and beds and all the rest of it, and they are just as liable on principle, one might say, to be indirectly rated—taken into consideration in the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Safeguarding of Industries Act.: Foreign Trawling, Moray Firth. (12 Apr 1922)

Captain John Jameson: 90. asked the Secretary for Scotland if he is aware that Danish and Norwegian trawlers frequently fish in the Moray Firth, in defiance of the Order prohibiting such fishing, and that no prosecution of such foreign trawlers has been made; that native trawlers axe subjected to heavy penalties for this offence; and will he take steps to have the law enforced against foreign as well as native...

Oral Answers to Questions — Safeguarding of Industries Act.: Foreign Trawling, Moray Firth. (12 Apr 1922)

Captain John Jameson: May fishermen fish in the Moray Firth in the meantime?

Railway Fires Act (1905) Amendment Bill. (7 Apr 1922)

Captain John Jameson: It is not necessary for me to deal with the speech of my hon. Friend the Member for the Western Isles (Dr. Murray), because it was a speech upon the next Bill, and not upon this Bill at all. I merely rise to supplement the reasons which were so concisely given by the right hon. Baronet the Member for the City of London (Sir F. Banbury) and the hon. Member for Montrose (Mr. Sturrock) why this...

Old Age Pensions. (4 Apr 1922)

Captain John Jameson: I beg to second the Amendment. If my hon. Friend will pardon me, however, I cannot quite go the length of agreeing with the reasoning of his. Amendment. I go a great deal further, because I say that, if the Chancellor of the Exchequer had in his pocket £15,000,000—which is just about the figure that would be added to the old age pensions bill if this Motion were to take effect—and if...

Old Age Pensions. (4 Apr 1922)

Captain John Jameson: I think he should pay his Income Tax without the inducement of 10s. a week. Accordingly one wants to remove from this discussion all ideas of pity for the poor or of hard heartedness to the poor. These have nothing to do with the matter, and the discussion can only relevantly be taken upon the footing, not of civic right which we ought to recognise, but that at the age of 70 everyone should...

Old Age Pensions. (4 Apr 1922)

Captain John Jameson: Why!

Orders of the Day — Unemployment Insurance [Money]. (30 Mar 1922)

Captain John Jameson: I shall not—[HON. MEMBERS: "Divide, divide!"]—occupy more than a moment or two in commenting upon the speech just made from the Labour Front Bench. It is irreconcilable with the position generally taken up by the Labour party. As I understand it, they advocate a non-contributory system. The thesis, as I understood it, that the right hon. Gentleman was propounding to us, was that the...

Orders of the Day — Unemployment Insurance [Money]. (30 Mar 1922)

Captain John Jameson: It certainly takes away any possible idea of hardship when, according to the thesis of the right hon. Gentleman, the workman pays whatever system you are under, and accordingly it does not matter twopence whether he pays indirectly as taxation or directly under a contributory system. I should like to point out the entire fallacy in figures that the hon. Gentleman made in the defence of his...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Aie Supplementary Estimate, 1921–22. (23 Mar 1922)

Captain John Jameson: I think every penny of this additional Vote was well spent, and was absolutely needed in the circumstances. It would be a gross piece of ingratitude for any lover of his country to cavil at the Government for the money which they spent on this very critical occasion. If we cast our minds back to that occasion, I think it will be seen that the Government saved this country from a first-class...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Aie Supplementary Estimate, 1921–22. (23 Mar 1922)

Captain John Jameson: I bow to your ruling, Sir. The point towards which I was verging was that if the programme I refer to had been carried out and the means of transport interrupted, and the railways paralysed, aeroplanes would have been a vital necessity. Luckily, they had not to be put into action, but it was only because of these precautions that the country at the time was saved this great disaster. It is on...

Orders of the Day — King's Speech.: Debate on the Address. (8 Feb 1922)

Captain John Jameson: I wonder what good the hon. Member for Govan thinks can be done by the kind of speech that he has just delivered. He began by charging the Government for being responsible for all the woes of the world, from China to Peru. There was nothing that was happening in India, in Russia, in Central Europe, or in any part of the globe that was not the fault, directly and personally, of the Prime...
