Duplicands of Feu Duties (Scotland) Bill.: Clause 6. — (Commencement of Act.) (9 Aug 1920)

Captain John Jameson: As I introduced this Bill may I appeal to hon. Members who backed the Bill to support our agreement with the Lords Amendment? This is an important Amendment, which takes out the retrospective Clause and deals with a blemish which fell under censure in Committee. The Clause as originally framed was logical, but there was this argument against it, that it was a hardship that people should have...

Orders of the Day — Duplicands of Feu-Duties (Scotland) Bill. (18 Jun 1920)

Captain John Jameson: I beg to move, "That the Bill be now read the Third time." I have been in charge of this Measure since it was sent to the Committee, and we have been in touch with the various legal bodies in Scotland and they are all agreed that there will have to be one or two small drafting Amendments. Otherwise it is a perfectly agreed Bill and there is no opposition to it in Scotland. I rather shrink...

Orders of the Day — Duplicands of Feu-Duties (Scotland) Bill. (18 Jun 1920)

Captain John Jameson: With the leave of the House, I should like to take up one point referred to by the right hon. Baronet (Sir F. Banbury). This is not a Bill in which the landowning interest is against other interests; it is between two sets of landowners, namely, the feuers and the superiors. In the Scottish feu contracts under the feudal system a superior and a vassal are the great features. In the Scottish...

Orders of the Day — Duplicands of Feu-Duties (Scotland) Bill. (18 Jun 1920)

Captain John Jameson: I am sorry to say I see no chance of my becoming a peer within the next week or two, and, therefore, I cannot give such an undertaking. There is no doubt, however, that one or two drafting amendments will necessarily have to be made, and I am sure that the matter will be gone into in the Lords. After all, they are the authority, because they had the case in their hands, and, no doubt, they...

Orders of the Day — Duplicands of Feu-Duties (Scotland) Bill. (18 Jun 1920)

Captain John Jameson: I certainly will not raise any objection. I know that there is great opposition to this Clause in, perhaps, the largest conveyancing body in Scotland, the Procurators of Glasgow, from whom I have had representations. This Clause was put in because the under- standing of the law was changed at the time of that decision, and the idea was that the principle should be that the law should run on,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Ireland.: Palestine (Restoration to Jews). (27 Apr 1920)

Captain John Jameson: In view of the fact that in much more recent times the national home of the Anglo-Saxon was Schleswig-Holstein, will the right hon. Gentleman consider the necessity of clearing the English out of England?

Orders of the Day — Trade Union Ballot Bill. (23 Apr 1920)

Captain John Jameson: May I, in the first place, congratulate the opponents of this Bill, though I rise to speak in favour of it, on their choice of an advocate? I could not possibly imagine a more astute choice than the right hon. Member for Abertillery (Mr. Brace). Everyone knows that if ballots in trade unions were conducted under auspices such as his and by the methods which he would like, this, indeed, would...

Orders of the Day — Financial Statement.: Customs and Excise. (19 Apr 1920)

Captain John Jameson: On the whole, so far as one can comprehend a Budget of these vast dimensions, I think it is a Budget that people will like, so far as they can like a Budget which imposes taxation of this kind. It is, at any rate, honest in that it tries to meet the situation and to meet it manfully. Britain during the War dealt with the situation manfully in man-power and in money, and now it must foot the...

Orders of the Day — Government of Scotland Bill. (16 Apr 1920)

Captain John Jameson: I beg to suggest to the hon. Member who moved and the right hon. Baronet who seconded the Amendment that they are really taking this Bill rather too much to heart. No doubt the Bill has very many defects, but I venture to suggest that it should be approached in this sort of spirit: De mortuis nil nisi bonum. Nobody expects, I suppose, that this Bill is actually going on to the Statute Book,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport.: Passenger Service, Edinburgh and London. (15 Apr 1920)

Captain John Jameson: 71. asked the Minister of Transport, whether he is aware that on the 1st January, 1917, the through passenger train service between Edinburgh, Prince's Street Station, and London, Euston Station, was temporarily withdrawn, as a war measure, and that the withdrawal has resulted in inconvenience to the travelling public to and from Edinburgh who are compelled to travel in crowded trains between...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Irish Administration. (13 Apr 1920)

Captain John Jameson: I can relieve the mind of the right hon. Gentleman the Member for Platting (Mr. Clynes) as to the alleged state of degradation of the Sinn Feiners imprisoned at Wormwood Scrubs. I do not know the other prisons in which Sinn Feiners are confined, but I have it on the authority of the military escort stationed at Wormwood Scrubs that they are having quite a good time there. As recently as last...

Oral Answers to Questions — Coal Production.: Indian Army Officers Invalided. (25 Mar 1920)

Captain John Jameson: 92. asked the Secretary of State for India how many officers of the Indian Army have been invalided out owing to the War; and how many of these have been given employment by the Government of India or the Foreign Office?

Orders of the Day — Supply. [4TH Allotted Day.]: Army Estimates, 1920–21 (Vote on Account). (23 Mar 1920)

Captain John Jameson: I am afraid I offended the hon. and gallant Member for Hull by the ghost of a smile flitting across my face. The smile was not at the state of Ireland at the present day, which is not a matter for smiling at all, but I am sorry to say it was at the dramatic manner of the hon. and gallant Gentleman. I apologise for it. As for the matter of his speech, I wish to associate myself entirely with...

Oral Answers to Questions — Premium Bonds.: Secretary for Scotland. (5 Nov 1919)

Captain John Jameson: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that there is great dissatisfaction in Scotland about the status and salary of this Minister, and the fact that the Minister who governs in Scotland in fourteen different Departments of Government has got an inferior status and is paid the same rate as a County Court judge?

Oral Answers to Questions — Income Tax.: British Chambers of Commerce. (30 Oct 1919)

Captain John Jameson: 77. asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether his attention has been drawn to the resolution passed by the Association of British Chambers of Commerce Taxation Committee and submitted to the Royal Commission on Income Tax by Sir Algernon Firth, baronet, ex-president of the Associated Chambers and president of the Federation of British Industries, to the effect that the Government may be...

Oral Answers to Questions — Income Tax.: Super-Tax (Graduation). (30 Oct 1919)

Captain John Jameson: 78. asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether his attention has been drawn to the representation made to the Royal Commission on Income Tax by Mr. H. Lakin-Smith, Chairman of the Finance and Taxation Committee of the Birmingham Chamber of Commerce, to the effect that, in the opinion of the Association of British Chambers of Commerce, graduation of Super-tax should not stop at the £10,000...

Orders of the Day — Land Settlement (Scotland) Bill. (15 Aug 1919)

Captain John Jameson: The only regret one can have in connection with the Second Reading of this Bill is that it is quite obvious from these empty benches that most of the representatives of Scotland of the Liberal and Labour persuasion are at present away on their grouse moors, and only a few hard-working Unionists like the hon. Baronet (Sir G. Younger) are left to still adorn the field of legislative Labour.

Orders of the Day — Land Settlement (Scotland) Bill. (15 Aug 1919)

Captain John Jameson: We give a warm welcome to the principle of this Bill, and on the whole we quite agree that the proper course is to take the Second Reading now, and leave it to the Recess in order that we may meanwhile get into touch with our constituencies and gather the general Amendments that no doubt will be required to this measure. As representing a burgh constituency, the part of this Bill in which I...

Orders of the Day — Profiteering Bill: Clause 1. — (Powers of the Board of Trade to Investigate Complaints and Take Proceedings.) (14 Aug 1919)

Captain John Jameson: I beg to move, in Subsection (5), to leave out the words "every director and officer of the company shall be guilty of the like offence unless he prove that the act which constituted the offence took place without his knowledge and consent." and to insert instead thereof the words the chairman and the managing director of the company shall be guilty of the offence charged unless they can show...

Orders of the Day — Profiteering Bill: Clause 1. — (Powers of the Board of Trade to Investigate Complaints and Take Proceedings.) (14 Aug 1919)

Captain John Jameson: I think that suggestion meets the point. It really fixes the responsibility upon the people who are primâ fame responsible, and accordingly, although it does not go quite the length 1 should like, I will withdraw my Amendment.
