Sir Robert Chadwick: On a point of Order. Question No. 72, that is now down in the name of the hon. Gentleman the Member for Dumbarton Burghs (Mr. Kirkwood), on this important matter of Russian credits, was down in the name of my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Abingdon (Major Glyn) on Tuesday. At that time the President of the Board of Trade said that he was going to make a statement on Thursday in reply...

Business of the House. (9 Jul 1931)

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce.: Argentina. (7 Jul 1931)

Sir Robert Chadwick: Does the right hon. Gentleman realise that at the present time we have probably a greater opportunity in Argentina for our trade than in any other foreign country in the world; and, following up the British Exhibition, which has created such an intense interest in the Argentine in regard to this country and our people, is it not time that the Government took the opportunity of departing from...

Private Business.: New Clause. — (Restriction of commencement of works.) (6 Jul 1931)

Sir Robert Chadwick: I was going to register strong opposition to the Bill but, in view of all that the Minister has said, I shall not continue my opposition. My objection is on behalf of the shipping industry, which has not been mentioned yet. If the training wall scheme is decided upon, it is going to add an enormous burden to shipping, for it would have to be paid for by the Conservancy by raising dues on...

Private Business.: New Clause. — (Restriction of commencement of works.) (6 Jul 1931)

Sir Robert Chadwick: Surely the Minister has just expressed willingness——

Private Business.: New Clause. — (Restriction of commencement of works.) (6 Jul 1931)

Sir Robert Chadwick: May I refer to a matter upon which you called me to order just now, Mr. Deputy-Speaker? I was speaking of the training walls that may have to be put into the river, and on looking at Clause 46 of the Bill I find the words: Subject to the provisions of this Act the board may make on or in the banks, bed, soil and foreshore of the river. Therefore, I submit that the Minister has a...

Orders of the Day — Postponed Clause 19. — (Exemptions.) (24 Jun 1931)

Sir Robert Chadwick: I shall not attempt to add to all the forcible arguments which have been put forward against this tax from this side of the Committee, but, with regard to the question of docks and wharves, I want to emphasise the point which was made by my right hon. Friend. Not only is this a harsh tax with respect to the shipping which makes use of these wharves, but it is a discriminating tax as between...

Orders of the Day — Trade Disputes and Trade Unions (Amendment) Bill. (28 Jan 1931)

Sir Robert Chadwick: Nothing which has fallen from the hon. Member for Barrow-in-Furness (Mr. Bromley) will assist in defending this Bill. In my opinion, this Measure would never have been heard of at all but for the condition of the cash box of the Socialist party. [HON. MEMBERS: "Oh!"] I shall not concern myself with the legal conundrums raised by this Measure. We have had a good deal of law during the last few...

Orders of the Day — Trade Disputes and Trade Unions (Amendment) Bill. (28 Jan 1931)

Sir Robert Chadwick: I cannot do so now; it is well known, but I could not really produce a particular case at this moment. [Interruption.] In speaking of this Bill, which is so uniformly bad, it is rather difficult to point to one part of it which is worse than another but the amendments of Sub-section (2) of Section 3 of the Act of 1927, which deals with intimidation, is, in my view, not only violently...

Orders of the Day — Trade Disputes and Trade Unions (Amendment) Bill. (28 Jan 1931)

Sir Robert Chadwick: The position is that they are not paying into the fund to-day because, as my right hon. Friend the Member for Epping (Mr. Churchill) said this afternoon, they do not choose to do so. The hon. Gentleman is going to make it as difficult as possible for them to do as they wish to do. The figures in that union are most striking. The Attorney-General the other day said, with regard to the figures...

Oral Answers to Questions — Liberia (Slave Traffic). (27 Jan 1931)

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: New Clause. — (Amendment of Finance Act, 1928, s. 2.) (7 Jul 1930)

Sir Robert Chadwick: I do not know if the hon. Gentleman realises that all this development of motor propulsion of the lifeboat is a new and heavier charge on the lifeboat service. It is the story of the transition from sail to steam, and will become a great extra charge on the whole of the lifeboat administration. Having gone so far, why stop there? Why not include the whole of the service which is one service?...

Orders of the Day — Coal Mines Bill.: Clause 3. — (Provisions of district scheme.) (2 Apr 1930)

Sir Robert Chadwick: I was not here to move this Amendment, to which my name is attached, but I should like to support it. Throughout the Debates very little has been said as to the effect of this Bill on shipping. With my hon. Friend who has just spoken I wish to press this Amendment with all the energy available. I am particularly glad to see the Lord Privy Seal present, because I know how dear to his heart is...

Orders of the Day — Coal Mines Bill.: New Clause. — (Selling-price of coal for export.) (26 Feb 1930)

Sir Robert Chadwick: I beg to move, "That the Clause be read a Second time." This Clause standing in the name of the right hon. Gentleman the Member for St. Ives (Mr. Runciman), myself and others, is on a matter of most vital interest to the shipping industry. As I understand it, my right hon. Friend has had a conversation with the President of the Board of Trade, who desires that this particular Clause should be...
