Orders of the Day — Supply.: Royal Parks and Pleasure Gardens. (25 Feb 1924)

Sir Joseph Hood: I should like to ask if the right hon. Gentleman is now prepared to make any statement with regard to additional facilities in Richmond Park for golf, the present facilities having proved so successful, not only from the point of view of recreation, but also financially?

Finance Bill: New Clause. — (Repayment of duty improperly collected under 11 and 12 Geo. V., c. 47.) (12 Jul 1922)

Sir Joseph Hood: I have listened very carefully to the Debate on this subject and I would like to ask the Solicitor-General if he cannot see his way to accept the Clause if it be amended by inserting the words to the effect that such repayment may be made "if the article has not been sold."

Railway and Canal Commission (Consents) Bill. (10 Jul 1922)

Sir Joseph Hood: I would ask my hon. and gallant Friend for a little information concerning Wimbledon Common. At present the Department occupies part of the Common as a military camp, and I gather, from the operation of the Bill, that the period of occupation may be prolonged for, at any rate, six months more. There is resentment at the continued occupation of this part of Wimbledon Common by the War Office....

Sir Joseph Hood: 52. asked the Prime Minister if he is aware that the Wimbledon War Pensions Committee say that the pensions fixed in September, 1919, were at the rate of approximately 10 per cent. below the then cost of living; whether the pensions were fixed for three years, although the Government were willing to revise them every year; whether, having regard to that willingness, the Government will now...

Orders of the Day — DEFENCE OF THE REALM (ACQUISITION OF LAND) BILL. [Lords]. (6 Dec 1920)

Sir Joseph Hood: I merely rise in the hope of eliciting some information from the right hon. Gentleman in charge of the Bill with regard to the position of the common lands of the country under this Bill. It is within the recollection of the House that, during the War, a number of the common lands of the country, or parts of those lands, have been taken possession of by the War Office, and they are still in...

Orders of the Day — Corporation Profits Tax.: Clatse 44. — (Charge of Corporation Profits Tax.) (13 Jul 1920)

Sir Joseph Hood: I beg to move, in Subsection (2, a), after the word "company," to insert the words "(except a company whose business is wholly carried on and directed abroad)." The object of the Amendment is to exclude from liability to this tax companies which, although incorporated in the United Kingdom but carry on their businesses wholly abroad and are directed abroad. I have no doubt it is in the...

Orders of the Day — Corporation Profits Tax.: Clatse 44. — (Charge of Corporation Profits Tax.) (13 Jul 1920)

Sir Joseph Hood: I definitely excluded the management. I said wholly directed abroad.

Orders of the Day — Corporation Profits Tax.: Clatse 44. — (Charge of Corporation Profits Tax.) (13 Jul 1920)

Sir Joseph Hood: May I point out that my Amendment is directed to companies that do not carry on business here, nor are directed from here, nor earn their profits here.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: Clause 8. — (Additional duty on cigars.) (6 Jul 1920)

Sir Joseph Hood: I beg to move to leave out the word "fifty" ["duty of fifty per cent"] and to insert instead thereof the word "twenty." The duty at present levied on tobacco is 8s. 2d. per lb. on the leaf tobacco imported and 15s. 7d. upon the imported manufactured tobacco—the cigar. The Chancellor of the Exchequer proposes a further ad valorem, duty of 50 per cent. on the imported cigar. That means that...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: Clause 8. — (Additional duty on cigars.) (6 Jul 1920)

Orders of the Day — Increase of Rent and Mortgage Interest (Restrictions) Bill.: Clause 2. — (Permitted Increases in Rent.) (21 Jun 1920)

Sir Joseph Hood: I beg to move, in Subsection (1, d, i), to leave out the words "twenty-five" ["twenty-five per cent."], and to insert instead thereof the word "twenty". I think it will be within the knowledge of hon. Members that during the War many houses had very little or no repairs done to them. Therefore the landlord in that respect is not prejudiced under this Clause. As I understand it, it is not...

Orders of the Day — Increase of Rent and Mortgage Interest (Restrictions) Bill.: Clause 2. — (Permitted Increases in Rent.) (21 Jun 1920)

Sir Joseph Hood: I beg to move at the end of Sub-section (2) to add the words, "or decoration". Unless these words are inserted the landlord might continue to get his 25 per cent. increase in rent, and leave the tenant to do the decorations out of his own pocket.

Orders of the Day — Income Tax.: Corporation Profits Tax. (27 Apr 1920)

Sir Joseph Hood: I should like to ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer for reconsideration of this tax, in the hope that he will, at any rate, receive a deputation from those members of the trade who are particularly interested. I do not pretend to have a very extensive knowledge of this particular branch of the trade. About 10 years ago I occupied, for a limited time, the position of Chairman of the Havana...

Orders of the Day — Income Tax.: Corporation Profits Tax. (27 Apr 1920)

Sir Joseph Hood: Will the right hon. Gentleman allow me to give an illustration?

Orders of the Day — Trade Marks Bill. (8 Aug 1919)

Sir Joseph Hood: I beg to move, after paragraph on Section 16, to insert "Section 22 But the registrar may permit registration of a mark or any modification thereof in favour of the assignee." My proposal is to add the provision of Section 22 of the Act of 1905. Under that section the proprietor may assign part of his goodwill in respect, for example, of foreign trade, and the practice in the past was to...

Supply. — [16TH Allotted Day.]: Postmaster-General's Statement. (17 Jul 1919)

Sir Joseph Hood: I desire to call the Postmaster-General's attention to a very deserving class, about whom I have had some correspondence with him, and have received very courteous replies. I refer to the class of auxiliary postmen. I may explain to the Committee that auxiliary postmen are a class of men employed by the Post Office for about four or five hours per day, two and a half hours in the morning for...

Supply. — [16TH Allotted Day.]: Postmaster-General's Statement. (17 Jul 1919)

Sir Joseph Hood: Of course, but the unfortunate thing is that in many eases which I have investigated personally the men have not been able to regain their original employment in the middle of the day, therefore the 28s. a week is the only remu- neration on which they have to keep themselves, their wives, and families. I respectfully suggest to the Postmaster-General that he should make representations to the...

Orders of the Day — Increase of Rent Bill.: New Clause. — (Yearly Value.) (14 Mar 1919)

Sir Joseph Hood: May I make a short appeal to the Attorney-General to consider this point. We know that several actions have already been brought under this old Act.

Orders of the Day — Increase of Rent Bill.: New Clause. — (Yearly Value.) (14 Mar 1919)

Sir Joseph Hood: I believe not. There is no doubt in the mind of the right hon. Gentleman that though these cases may be brought, that in all probability the County Court judges will decide the case on the lines he suggested. That may be so or may be not; but it does not prevent an action being brought and the tenants being put to the expense of defending them. I therefore hope that he will consider this...
