Oral Answers to Questions — Herring Fishing Industry. (17 May 1934)

Mr William Stewart: Can my hon. Friend indicate what is the obstacle to agreement, and whether any steps can be taken on this side, or by negotiations between the Governments, to get over that difficulty?

Oral Answers to Questions — Herring Fishing Industry. (17 May 1934)

Mr William Stewart: In view of the sharp divergence of opinion as to the degree of the present depression, will the hon. Gentleman consider calling for an emergency report from the Sea Fish Commission as to the facts of the present situation, and base thereupon an immediate set of emergency proposals in order to overcome what we understand is the severe depression?

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill. (16 May 1934)

Mr William Stewart: The hon. Member's last few words were about the Land Tax. I ask him, does he favour the Land Tax which Mr. Snowden introduced?

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill. (16 May 1934)

Mr William Stewart: I think it can be done on the basis of the facts already available, but I am not going to be led off on that point. Hon. Members are not, therefore, justified in attacking the Budget because it contains a provision repealing something which is not their policy and which they have never put in the forefront of their programme. I have certain very definite views on the insertion of this new...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland.: Rating System. (27 Mar 1934)

Mr William Stewart: Will the hon. Gentleman consider amending the law under which at present factories when working benefit by derating, but when they are not working are rated in the same way as private houses?

Orders of the Day — Land Settlement (Scotland) Bill. (27 Mar 1934)

Mr William Stewart: I did, and I can give them to the right hon. and gallant Member.

Orders of the Day — Land Settlement (Scotland) Bill. (27 Mar 1934)

Mr William Stewart: I have not the figures with me. I do not think that it affects my point. I am not competent to speak of the relations of the Scottish Office with the Treasury, although in years gone by one came to the conclusion that they were not very happy, but I wonder whether it is not possible to obtain for these smallholding houses some measure of the subsidy which is given to other kinds of houses....

Orders of the Day — Land Settlement (Scotland) Bill. (27 Mar 1934)

Mr William Stewart: My right hon. Friend misunderstands me. You are here charging the smallholders 3 per cent. on the total capital cost. That is going to give a clear return to the State. I cannot see the Treasury losing a single halfpenny here. It is a new departure. In these special circumstances I wonder whether we cannot obtain for these houses some part of the Scottish housing subsidy. I cannot understand...

Orders of the Day — Land Settlement (Scotland) Bill. (27 Mar 1934)

Mr William Stewart: I have given some study to this problem as I am sure my hon. and gallant Friend has, but my contention is that under the Agricultural Holdings Act smallholders do not, and cannot, possibly obtain the rights they have under the Landholders Act. There is no answer to that proposition. The Land Court, if employed in that way, is going to act only as arbiter just as any unofficial arbiter would...

Orders of the Day — Illegal Trawling (Scotland) Bill. (20 Mar 1934)

Mr William Stewart: The hon. Member cannot suggest to me that the City of Aberdeen is entirely separated from the County of Aberdeen, and that the County Council of Aberdeen have no interest or no knowledge of the fishing community.

Orders of the Day — Illegal Trawling (Scotland) Bill. (20 Mar 1934)

Mr William Stewart: The hon. Member is giving his own case away. He admits that the body which speaks has a better knowledge of the inshore fishing problem than he has.

Orders of the Day — Illegal Trawling (Scotland) Bill. (20 Mar 1934)

Mr William Stewart: I am suggesting that if he had met his own neighbours, if not his constituents, he would have received his answer.

Orders of the Day — Illegal Trawling (Scotland) Bill. (20 Mar 1934)

Mr William Stewart: I can only suggest that the hon. Member should have listened to as well as spoken to his friends. But that is not all. In the city of Aberdeen, for which my hon. Friend claims to speak, is a body of fishermen representing the Central Council of Scottish Fishermen, the Scottish Herring Producers' Association. That body passed a resolution in December supporting this Bill. Therefore, of what...

Orders of the Day — Illegal Trawling (Scotland) Bill. (20 Mar 1934)

Mr William Stewart: The hon. Gentleman is being obstreperous, I think, because he knows that the Herring Producers' Association deal not only with herring matters but all matters affecting fishing round the coast of Scotland. For example, they have passed resolutions, of which, I think, the hon. Member has probably had a copy, dealing with the new Unemployment Bill, with share fishing and other matters of that...

Orders of the Day — Land Settlement (Scotland) [Money]. (20 Mar 1934)

Mr William Stewart: They have not got to do it.

Orders of the Day — Land Settlement (Scotland) [Money]. (20 Mar 1934)

Mr William Stewart: My hon. Friend completely fails to understand the psychology of a man who will accept a farm of that kind. No one would force my hon. Friend to do that kind of thing any more than the Government forced him to do certain things during the War. I have not misunderstood my right hon. Friend. I understood him to complain that this was a provision of only 300 allotments when we wanted a bigger...

Orders of the Day — Foreign Affairs. (14 Mar 1934)

Mr William Stewart: I was referring to the present.

Orders of the Day — Foreign Affairs. (14 Mar 1934)

Mr William Stewart: That is not the point.

Oral Answers to Questions — Post Office.: Facilities, Gateside, Fife. (6 Mar 1934)

Mr William Stewart: Will the Minister consider convening a public meeting of the petitioners which might be met by his representative end the whole matter discussed openly and grievances expressed, and, I hope, redressed.

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Revenue Departments. (1 Mar 1934)

Mr William Stewart: That is a very important admission by the hon. Member because the impression given to me and I think to the Committee generally by his speech was that until these problems were settled he thought there should be no dealing with Russia and that he was prepared to press for a reduction in the Vote to show the strength of his conviction. What is the actual case? No one suggests, and the Labour...
