Orders of the Day — Ministry of Health (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill (8 Dec 1920)

Mr Rei Carter: The word "undesirable" has been used with regard to this three months. Surely a man who has means to buy a house cannot be called undesirable, and I should have thought that if the landlord had to let the house under any circumstances, practically to any tenant, there is a good deal more likelihood of the tenant being undesirable.

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Health (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill (8 Dec 1920)

Mr Rei Carter: Surely if a man owns a house, and he wants to sell it in preference to letting it, at any rate, if he holds it for three months, he loses the rental of it. If a man wants to dispose of a house, and it takes three months to do it, this Amendment would be very drastic indeed, and would put a very great onus, and undeserved penalty, upon a man who is leaving a neighbourhood and wants three...

Orders of the Day — Excess Profits Duty. (28 Apr 1920)

Mr Rei Carter: I wish to support the Amendment. Coming from one of the particular areas that has just been spoken of when the matter of spindles came up, I wish to say that, in our county and round about there, there was a pious hope, and more than a pious hope, that this particular duty would be dropped altogether this year. It was really believed in, so that when the additional 20 per cent. was put on it...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Revenue Buildings. (3 Mar 1920)

Mr Rei Carter: As a member of the Manchester Corporation I would like to say that I do not think it is right and proper that this money should be spent on public work in Manchester when the demand for houses is so great. In Manchester we have the greatest possible difficulty in getting sufficient labour to carry out the housing scheme already accepted. We are doing our best to get the houses built, because...

Orders of the Day — Silver Coinage Bill. (18 Feb 1920)

Mr Rei Carter: I would ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, is it necessary to have the three-penny bit, or would there not be a saving if it were left out in the coining of the next lot of silver? If possible a larger amount of copper coinage should be circulated through the country. I know that there is a shortage of copper coinage to supply the needs in our large towns and cities. I have never yet known...

Orders of the Day — Silver Coinage Bill. (18 Feb 1920)

Mr Rei Carter: I was speaking of 30 years' experience in Manchester.

Oral Answers to Questions — Food Supplies.: Convictions for Profiteering. (8 Jul 1919)

Mr Rei Carter: 80. asked the Food Controller in how many instances the Ministry of Food has taken action under the Defence of the Realm (Food Profits) Act, 1918, against food traders convicted of illegal profiteering, and with what results?

Oral Answers to Questions — Food Supplies.: Convictions for Profiteering. (8 Jul 1919)

Mr Rei Carter: Why have so few cases been proceeded with?

Oral Answers to Questions — Food Supplies.: Convictions for Profiteering. (8 Jul 1919)

Mr Rei Carter: 81. asked the Food Controller whether, since December last, the Manchester local food committee has been unsuccessfully urging the Ministry of Food to take immediate proceedings under the Defence of the Realm (Food Profits) Act, 1918, against a Manchester firm which has been convicted on several occasions for illegal profiteering; whether he is aware that, owing to the dilatory action of the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Food Supplies.: Convictions for Profiteering. (8 Jul 1919)

Mr Rei Carter: May I ask my hon. Friend whether he is aware that this very matter has been before his Department since last December, and that on one occasion, in May, it was said that the reason for the delay in dealing with it was the prevalence of influenza among the officials? Is the hon. Gentleman also aware that as late as June last the answer was that the delay was owing to illness in the legal...

Oral Answers to Questions — Enemy Princes (Money Payments). (6 May 1919)

Mr Rei Carter: 45. asked the Prime Minister whether any money payments originating in British Territories, whether arising from public Grants or private possessions, are being paid or are being held up for the credit of the Duke of Albany, the Duke of Cumberland, and Count Taafe, or whether the recent expulsion from the peerage of the persons named as traitors ipso facto involves confiscation of their...

Aliens Restriction Bill (15 Apr 1919)

Mr Rei Carter: Speaking for the first time in this House, rather late in the Debate, I think that almost everything that can be said has been said, but I do not think I should be right if I did not voice here the expressions that I gave six months before the election, and long before I ever expected to be among lion. Members in this House. The gist of my speech has already been given by the hon. Member for...
