Orders of the Day — LONDON AND NORTH EASTERN RAILWAY BILL (By Order). (27 Feb 1929)

Colonel Murrough Wilson: I stood up to reply when the lion. Member himself rose. I wish to say that the point which has been raised by the hon. Member for Leith (Mr. E. Brown) will certainly be given full consideration.

Orders of the Day — New Clause. — (Amendment of 10 Edw. VII., c. 8.) (6 Jul 1926)

Colonel Murrough Wilson: I beg to second the Motion.

LONDON AND NORTH-EASTERN RAILWAY (SUPERANNUATION FUND) BILL (By Order). (3 Mar 1926)

Colonel Murrough Wilson: It is difficult to follow the distinguished orators who have been speaking on the Bill, but as a mere director of one of the companies involved, the London and North Eastern, I should like to say a word or two, more especially with regard to the last speech and to that of my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Ripon (Major Hills). The right hon. Gentleman who has just spoken has given...

Oral Answers to Questions — Magistrates (Wine and Spirit Trade). (29 Jul 1925)

Colonel Murrough Wilson: 39. asked the Attorney-General if he is aware of a rule by which persons connected with the wine and spirit trade who are elected to the position of mayor of a borough are disqualified from acting as magistrates during their term of office?

Oral Answers to Questions — Magistrates (Wine and Spirit Trade). (29 Jul 1925)

Colonel Murrough Wilson: Can the right hon. and learned Gentleman say why there should be a rule which disqualifies a man from being appointed a magistrate, although allowing the same man to be a magistrate even in the succeeding year?

Oral Answers to Questions — Magistrates (Wine and Spirit Trade). (29 Jul 1925)

Colonel Murrough Wilson: May I ask the right hon. and learned Gentleman whether by any stretch of imagination it can be said that a man who is eligible one year is ineligible another year?

Orders of the Day — LONDON & NORTH EASTERN RAILWAY (GENERAL POWERS) BILL [Lords] (By Order). (16 Jun 1925)

Colonel Murrough Wilson: How does the hon. Member read that into the statement?

Orders of the Day — LONDON & NORTH EASTERN RAILWAY (GENERAL POWERS) BILL [Lords] (By Order). (16 Jun 1925)

Colonel Murrough Wilson: There have been so many complaints made against the railway companies that it would seem desirable that I should reply, at any rate, to some of these complaints. If I may say so, however, the hon. Member who spoke last gave a very good example of the general trend of the remarks that have been made throughout this Debate. He said that he had found it very difficult to get the railway...

Orders of the Day — LONDON & NORTH EASTERN RAILWAY (GENERAL POWERS) BILL [Lords] (By Order). (16 Jun 1925)

Colonel Murrough Wilson: I hope I have not in any way misconstrued what was the view of the railway company. As I understand the case, the position was that there were serious delays at these level crossings. In order to avoid those delays this line was proposed, and it was hoped that when it was completed the delays would disappear, or practically disappear. What I am suggesting to the House is that, owing to the...

Orders of the Day — LONDON & NORTH EASTERN RAILWAY (GENERAL POWERS) BILL [Lords] (By Order). (16 Jun 1925)

Colonel Murrough Wilson: If I may continue, I would like to point out that the fact that powers were taken last summer shows that the matter has been under discussion for some considerable time; and, as he himself told us, during those years the coal traffic was considerably heavier than it is at the present time, and delays were much more serious than now. Therefore, what I am saying is, in fact, an absolutely...

Oral Answers to Questions — Naval and Military Pensions and Grants.: Appeals. (24 Jul 1924)

Colonel Murrough Wilson: 9. asked the Minister of Pensions whether he will consider the desirability of notifying the pensioner of His right to appeal, shortly before the expiration of such right, in order to obviate the waste of both time and money caused by bringing the appellant to the Pensions Appeal Tribunal only to be told that the Court has no power to hear the case owing to the fact that the Ministry had...

Oral Answers to Questions — Naval and Military Pensions and Grants.: Appeals. (24 Jul 1924)

Colonel Murrough Wilson: 10. asked the Minister of Pensions what number of cases have been sent to the Pensions Appeal Tribunal in which the Ministry objected to their being heard on account of their being out of time, and the number of those cases in which the Ministry have sustained their objection?

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: Clause 15. — (Amendments as to licences for mechanically-propelled vehicles.) (30 Jun 1924)

Colonel Murrough Wilson: I hope the Minister of Transport will resist this Amendment to his utmost ability. This House has passed a Resolution expressing agreement with the Motion brought forward to the effect that already the Road Fund is not sufficient to supply all that is required for the maintenance of country roads. We are being asked to reduce the amount paid into the Road Fund, and the consequence will be to...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: Clause 15. — (Amendments as to licences for mechanically-propelled vehicles.) (30 Jun 1924)

Colonel Murrough Wilson: The damage is caused by large and small cars, and that does not affect the argument I am using against the point that the more cars you have the larger will be the revenue. My argument is that the more cars you have on the roads the more damage will be done, and the more the rural ratepayers will have to pay. Therefore, I hope the Minister of Transport will oppose this Amendment.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport.: Springhead Locomotive Works, Hull. (24 Jun 1924)

Colonel Murrough Wilson: Is it not a fact that one of the main reasons put forward in favour of the Railways Bill was that the railway companies should be enabled to concentrate their shops and so effect considerable economies for the benefit of everyone concerned?

Orders of the Day — Supply. (6 Mar 1924)

Colonel Murrough Wilson: I am sure the Committee have listened with great interest to the plea of Scotland for further attention with regard to this money which is said to be due to them in respect of roads, but the hon. Member who has just spoken fails to realise that, before the motor cars of which he complains arrive in Scotland, they have to pass through some of the southern counties. When the journey is...

Orders of the Day — Private Business.: LONDON AND NORTH EASTERN RAILWAY BILL (by Order). (5 Mar 1924)

Colonel Murrough Wilson: Before dealing with the larger question, perhaps I might refer to two points which have been raised, the first by the hon. Member for Plaistow (Mr. W. Thorne) and the second by the hon. Member for North-West Hull (Colonel Lambert Ward). The hon Member for Plaistow gave us a very long extract from a memorandum which has been adopted by the West Ham Council. All hon. Members who listened to...

Orders of the Day — Private Business.: LONDON AND NORTH EASTERN RAILWAY BILL (by Order). (5 Mar 1924)

Colonel Murrough Wilson: The Noble Lord took me up rather too quickly. I used the word "firstly," and I was dealing, firstly, with the question of electrification. As the hon. and learned Member for Bassetlaw Division pointed out we hope to electrify the line [HON. MEMBERS: "We?"] It may simplify matters if I say that I happen to be a director of the company, and I think I am entitled to use the word "we." When a...

Orders of the Day — Private Business.: LONDON AND NORTH EASTERN RAILWAY BILL (by Order). (5 Mar 1924)

Colonel Murrough Wilson: I cannot give a guarantee of that kind. The hon. and learned Member for Bassetlaw has pointed out that, with the one exception of the Metropolitan Railway Company, which made an agreement—to which there were two sides, as he also truly pointed out—any company can start and build those tubes, and if it were a paying proposition I am certain the House of Commons, or the Committee upstairs,...
