Orders of the Day — Supply.: Board of Trade. (18 Jul 1935)

Mr William Stewart: I did apply to that Council, and I have no doubt they could do more, but despite anything they can do I feel that the Board of Trade might have some kind of bureau to which, if necessary, foreign employers could apply.

Orders of the Day — Consolidated Fund (Appropriation) Bill.: Agriculture. (31 Jul 1935)

Mr William Stewart: I will put it this way that the right hon. Gentleman hates the industry in its present form.

Orders of the Day — Consolidated Fund (Appropriation) Bill.: Agriculture. (31 Jul 1935)

Mr William Stewart: I know the general secretary of the Scottish Farm, Workers' Union—we meet occasionally—and he will be quite ready to admit that in many parts of Scotland, particularly in those parts most intimately concerned with sugar beet, his union does not exist. In the East Fife district there is no branch of the Farm Workers' Union. The right hon. Member for Darwen to-day was not quite so effective...

Orders of the Day — Consolidated Fund (Appropriation) Bill.: Agriculture. (31 Jul 1935)

Mr William Stewart: I think the right hon. Gentleman will find, if he reads the OFFICIAL REPORT, that he referred to Cupar, but I am glad that he does not include it as an inefficient factory. I shall support the new policy of the Government on the definite understanding that there will be a tapering off of Government assistance, and that plans are made to enable the industry to become independent. I agree that...
