Sunday Performances (Temporary Regulation) Bill. (6 Oct 1931)

Mr Samuel March: I wish to support this Bill, and hope the House will notice that, in spite of all the passion which has been shown by a group of hon. Members opposite, they were not here to move their Amendments. If they desire to put this matter in their election programme, there is nothing to stop them from doing it, but I, as a London Member, have had a sufficiently strong intimation from the people in my...

Income Tax.: Profits on Conversion of Government Securities. (17 Sep 1931)

Mr Samuel March: On a point of Order. I would like to ask whether there is a possibility of a Member discussing the whole question before any Amendments are moved in connection with this matter?

Income Tax.: Profits on Conversion of Government Securities. (17 Sep 1931)

Mr Samuel March: I asked you, Mr. Speaker, some time ago whether we should be able to speak upon the general question of the tax, but I think that I shall be able to get in a few words upon this Amendment which will satisfy my constituents. I am in favour of the Amendment. [Laughter.] Hon. Members may laugh but there are a large number of persons in my constituency who will not be able to pay this tax in...

Income Tax.: Profits on Conversion of Government Securities. (17 Sep 1931)

Mr Samuel March: May I say that I asked Mr. Speaker before this Amendment was moved whether I could discuss the whole subject on this proposition and he said "No." He said that the general subject could only be dealt with when the Resolution as a whole was put, and therefore that I was limited to the first Amendment.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport.: Traffic Commissioners (Chairmen's Salaries). (16 Sep 1931)

Mr Samuel March: Were there not a certain specified efficiency and certain abilities required of these men before the agreements were signed?

Mr Samuel March: They went and asked for it, of course.

Oral Answers to Questions — Unemployment (Fruit Picking, Essex). (15 Jul 1931)

Mr Samuel March: May I ask the Parliamentary Secretary whether the Depart- ment made any inquiries about the wages, hours and housing conditions of the people who were transferred from one county to another?

Orders of the Day — Housing (Rural Authorities) Bill.: Clause 1. — (Special Government contributions to hosing expenses of certain rural district councils.) (14 Jul 1931)

Mr Samuel March: I support the Minister in the attitude which he took in the statement that he has made. For the last two years the Members on the other side of the Committee have continually asked the Government what they are going to do for rural workers. Now that the Minister has tried to do something for them, all this opposition is being brought up against the Bill. We are told that we must have a rent...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: Clause 31. — (Advances to Road Fund for meeting expenditure in connection with expedited schemes.) (23 Jun 1931)

Mr Samuel March: I was very much surprised to hear the ex-Minister of Transport speak as he did to-day about road improvement and road development. I always thought he was anxious to see our roads put into good order, and from time to time I have heard hon. Members opposite pressing the Minister of Transport to assist in improving rural roads, wishing to have them made classified roads—not No. 1 or No. 2...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: Clause 31. — (Advances to Road Fund for meeting expenditure in connection with expedited schemes.) (23 Jun 1931)

Mr Samuel March: Those bypass roads will relieve some of the second class roads, and then the local councils will have an opportunity of improving the rural roads. I come from the county of Essex. [HON. MEMBERS: "Oh!"] Hon. Members may well say "Oh." I have said "Oh" many times. If there is a reactionary county council it is in Essex. They have only just begun to wake up and to do any work. By the help of the...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: Clause 31. — (Advances to Road Fund for meeting expenditure in connection with expedited schemes.) (23 Jun 1931)

Mr Samuel March: I want to remind the ex-Minister of Transport of the £12,000,000, because he made some speeches about it. We have been able to help the authorities to a much larger extent than before, and because the Minister now asks for £9,000,000 to carry on this 12 months' programme all these old arguments are thrown up against him. The policy which has now been adopted was bound to come, because the...

Orders of the Day — British Sugar Industry (Assistance). (12 Jun 1931)

Mr Samuel March: I am very glad to have been here this morning and to have seen a smile on the face of the noble Lord the Member for Aldershot (Viscount Wolmer). It is the first time I have ever seen the Noble Lord smile in connection with anything which was being done for agriculture. I have known him to "go off at the deep end" on many occasions because he thought that this Government were not doing...

Orders of the Day — British Sugar Industry (Assistance). (12 Jun 1931)

Mr Samuel March: I am glad to know that the Noble Lord considers that it is people such as employers who have to be considered first——

Orders of the Day — British Sugar Industry (Assistance). (12 Jun 1931)

Mr Samuel March: I am quoting it as nearly as I can.

Orders of the Day — British Sugar Industry (Assistance). (12 Jun 1931)

Mr Samuel March: I suggest to the noble lord that if the labourers have not a proper living wage you cannot expect to get a return out of them. I have been a carman for many years and I know that if you do not feed a horse, he cannot work. If you do not give the agricultural labourer a proper living wage you cannot expect him to do the work. I know as much about the agricultural labourer as the noble lord...

Orders of the Day — British Sugar Industry (Assistance). (12 Jun 1931)

Mr Samuel March: I only wish to ask whether the workers who do this work for the growers can expect a living wage? We are guaranteeing the grower a certain sum for the growing of his crops. Is there a guarantee that the men who work for him are to have a minimum wage—not a maximum of course—for the work which they are doing to produce this crop? The Noble Lord joins in the discussion again to say that the...
