Orders of the Day — Budget Proposals and Economic Survey (13 Apr 1948)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: The disadvantage of being called at this late stage of the Debate is this: so many points have been raised which one wants to take up, that one is likely to lose sight of the time at one's disposal. In spite of the small amount of sugar at the end of the speech of the hon. Member for Chorley (Mr. Kenyon) I do not think that those responsible for the present Socialist planning could have...

Orders of the Day — Budget Proposals and Economic Survey (13 Apr 1948)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: I am speaking to a timetable.

Orders of the Day — Budget Proposals and Economic Survey (13 Apr 1948)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: Sugar and butter.

Orders of the Day — Budget Proposals and Economic Survey (13 Apr 1948)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: Passing on from that point, about which there appears to be some controversy, may I recommend to hon. Members on the other side to read, mark and learn the remarks which were made by the hon. Member for North Bristol with regard to food subsidies, because I think his statement about the reduction of food subsidies is the only honest and straightforward statement on that subject which I have...

Orders of the Day — Budget Proposals and Economic Survey (13 Apr 1948)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: The hon. Member for Chorley (Mr. Kenyon).

Orders of the Day — Criminal Justice Bill: NEW CLAUSE (Charge of housebreaking triable summarily.) (15 Apr 1948)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: I would ask the Home Secretary to consider this matter again. I entirely agree with what has been said about the anxiety caused by housebreaking and the seriousness of this offence. We all desire to do nothing to make people think lightly of that offence. I am not quite certain what will be the effect of this Clause. As I understand it, the court would have the option either of dealing...

Orders of the Day — Criminal Justice Bill: NEW CLAUSE (Charge of housebreaking triable summarily.) (15 Apr 1948)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: What I was suggesting was that there were certain alternatives. There is the alternative of dealing with it summarily or sending it for trial, or there is the other course of dealing with it summarily so far as the evidence is concerned and forwarding it for sentence to a higher court. From my own experience I will tell the right hon. Gentleman something of which he is perfectly well...

Orders of the Day — Criminal Justice Bill: New Clause. — (Service of copy of indictment.) (15 Apr 1948)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: I would like briefly to reinforce the appeal which has been made to the right hon. Gentleman. I think the practical difficulties are surmountable. I have risen to ask the right hon. Gentleman not to be too much impressed by representations which he may receive from clerks of the peace and clerks of assize because—I say this at my peril—I think there is in this department a good deal of...

Orders of the Day — Criminal Justice Bill: New Clause. — (Payment of costs of defence on acquittal, etc.) (15 Apr 1948)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: I think most of us on this side of the Committee will welcome this Clause and consider it important. At the same time, I cannot feel that the argument of the hon. Member for West Leicester (Mr. Janner) is really very sound. I think it would be very dangerous if people were to feel that, in criminal cases, costs would follow the event as they do in civil cases. Although I quite agree that this...

First Schedule. — (Parliamentary Constituencies.) (26 Apr 1948)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: I beg to move, in page 73, line 38, at the end, to insert: 9. Wirral—The urban districts of Ellesmere Port, Hoylake, Neston and Wirral. I would suggest that with that Amendment we should also consider the Amendment in my name in page 74. In view of what the Home Secretary has said on the last Amendment, I hope he will accept these two Amendments. They relate to my own constituency. At...

First Schedule. — (Parliamentary Constituencies.) (26 Apr 1948)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: May I reinforce what the hon. Member for West Birkenhead (Mr. Collick) has said? There would seem to be a technical difficulty here, Mr. Beaumont. Although I referred to the various Amendments standing in my name, I moved only the first one, and the second one was not formally moved. Therefore, I submit that it would be in Order to take the Amendment in the name of the hon. Member for West...

Third Schedule. — (Proceedings at Parliamentary Elections.) (27 Apr 1948)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: Before the Amendment is withdrawn, I would like to ask the Home Secretary to consider again a matter which was raised a moment or so ago, whether he is not allowing too long a period. I suggest that this proviso illustrates the kind of practical difficulty which may arise. If an election agent and those concerned have to be on the alert for the whole of eight days, which may well be the...

Third Schedule. — (Proceedings at Parliamentary Elections.) (27 Apr 1948)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: I was unimpressed by the answer of the Home Secretary. Apparently there are two reasons for opposing the Amendment. The first is that the person who was born abroad and wishes to stand for Parliament in this country should be ashamed of that fact. But he is ashamed of the fact he is not the right sort of person to put himself forward at an election. The second reason is one which we...

Domestic Coal Allowances (12 May 1948)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: I beg to second the Motion. I think that all hon. Members on all sides will feel that a very considerable public service has been done by my hon. Friend the Member for Sutton Coldfield (Sir J. Mellor) in enabling this matter to be debated. I think I should begin by offering an expression of sympathy to the Parliamentary Secretary. I understand he has been somewhat busily engaged elsewhere,...

Domestic Coal Allowances (12 May 1948)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: I thought the position of the Government at the present time was that they were no longer acquiring coal from overseas.

Domestic Coal Allowances (12 May 1948)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: The hon. and learned Gentleman has given his construction. I have no doubt the Parliamentary Secretary will be appropriately fortified thereby. However, I am certain the House will welcome a re-statement of the fact that it is not proposed to acquire more coal from overseas. The hon. and learned Gentleman in his characteristic manner, has come to the assistance of the House about the meaning...

Domestic Coal Allowances (12 May 1948)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: I am greatly indebted for the very clear explanation given by the hon. and learned Member for Gloucester (Mr. Turner-Samuels). Can he explain why, on page 2 of this order, the word "actual" is missed out, and will he also say when consumption is not actual?

Domestic Coal Allowances (12 May 1948)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: Then may I ask the hon. and learned Gentleman why, the second time it is used, in paragraph 2, the words "actual consumption" are repeated, whereas the third time "actual" is not used?

Domestic Coal Allowances (12 May 1948)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: I particularly did not mention private or public enterprise. I was not blaming anyone. I only gave reasons, including the lack of facilities, and suggested that where there is bad coal an allowance should be made. That is quite a different story.

Domestic Coal Allowances (12 May 1948)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: On a point of Order. If the hon. Member cannot regain the path may he be sent back to the gas-chamber as quickly as possible?
