Children [Money] (12 May 1948)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: Is the Commission hedging on any of its purchases?

Children [Money] (12 May 1948)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: And it would have earned a good many dollars.

Children [Money] (12 May 1948)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: Does the right hon. Gentleman deny that if the market had been opened it would have earned a good many dollars?

Children [Money] (12 May 1948)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: Is the President of the Board of Trade really suggesting that if the Liverpool Market had been open there would be no earnings by way of arbitrations?

Children [Money] (12 May 1948)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: Does the right hon. Gentleman dispute the estimate which the late Chancellor of the Exchequer gave of earnings equivalent to £1 million a year.

Children [Money] (12 May 1948)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: I must apologise for the fact that I was not here when the hon. Member for Nottingham, East (Mr. Harrison), who raised this matter on the Adjournment, made his speech. I was unable to be present because I was taking part in the previous Debate on the Prayer. I think the hon. Member has raised a matter of extreme importance in which we must all be vitally concerned, irrespective of party. We...

Children [Money] (12 May 1948)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: The right hon. Gentleman conducts his withdrawal with great skill. I adhere to my point that had the Liverpool Market been operating there would have been substantial dollar earnings, but that is not a point I was deliberately wishing to make, but a point to which I was drawn by the right hon. Gentleman's statement. My first point is a question of the use of the merchants in Liverpool. In...

Children [Money] (12 May 1948)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: With regard to American cotton, I agree. I am suggesting that that example should be followed with regard to the Egyptian market. I am not making a party point on this.

Children [Money] (12 May 1948)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: I have not tried to argue this on the merits of bulk purchase, the policy having been decided; but I say that a great deal of use could be made of the merchants formerly on the Liverpool market to the great advantage of this country. I am not in the least surprised that this Debate should be taking place, because the great reason given for the abolition of the Liverpool market was that bulk...

Children [Money] (12 May 1948)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: I apologise to the hon. Gentleman if I have not made myself clear, but my point was that the whole value of the Liverpool market was that it was a world market, and that these various fluctuations in the various countries could be dealt with by a mechanism registering world opinion, world supply and demand. That is what we are missing, and until we get back to that quite unique barometer with...

Orders of the Day — Representation of the People Bill: Clause 3. — (Adaptation of 7 & 8 Geo. 6 c. 41.) (15 Jun 1948)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: I am of the opinion that there is no general principle involved in this matter, and that it is very difficult to have a general discussion. My hon. Friend the Member for Oxford (Mr. Hogg) endeavoured to make the discussion more general, but in view of the Government's own Amendments, which deal with particular cases, it is difficult to see how any general principle is involved. In accordance...

Orders of the Day — Raw Cotton Prices (17 Jun 1948)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: It is my duty to conclude the Debate as far as this side of the House is concerned, and I beg the indulgence which the House usually gives to a person who is doing something for the first time. Might I comment on the versatility of the members of the Government upon this subject? We have had four major Debates on the purchase of raw cotton. The first time the Government spokesmen were the...

Orders of the Day — Raw Cotton Prices (17 Jun 1948)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: If I had not understood the hon. Gentleman, he has not understood me either. My point is that, had the Liverpool market been in existence, we could not have had a variation of 4s. 6d. in a day. I think the hon. Gentleman will agree that a variation in the order of 1d. was a huge variation in the course of a day. Now we get a variation of 11d. a lb. in one night. One would imagine that some...

Orders of the Day — Raw Cotton Prices (17 Jun 1948)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: I thought that was probably the explanation, but I thought that, in view of the ambiguity, it was right that the right hon. Gentleman should be able to make the matter quite clear. I would point out what has already been pointed out, that if the policy is to sell according to the replacement cost, there is no real stability because the replacement costs are going to fluctuate so that the...

Orders of the Day — Raw Cotton Prices (17 Jun 1948)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: May I ask the right hon. Gentleman whether there is a futures market in wool, and, secondly, what proportion of the stocks of wool are held by the Government organisation?

Orders of the Day — Raw Cotton Prices (17 Jun 1948)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: Does the right hon. Gentleman dispute that the Commission are now charging the spinner here something like 12d. per lb. more than the Indian spinner is having to pay for the same type of cotton?

Orders of the Day — Raw Cotton Prices (17 Jun 1948)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: I beg to move, "That Item Subhead A.1 be reduced by £1,000."

Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No. 2) BILL: New Clause. — (Limitation of liability of trustees.) (21 Jun 1948)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: I would like to appeal to the Government to reconsider this matter. The words otherwise than by negligence or default on his part seem to be extremely wide. They mean that if there is a scintilla of evidence of negligence in the matter, or the slightest default, then the Commissioners have no discretion whatsoever over the release of any liability. I suggest that it would be very much better...

Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No. 2) BILL: Clause 16. — (Relief for rural entertainments.) (21 Jun 1948)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: I understand that this Amendment is a consequential Amendment. The first time the words appear the Subsection will read, borough, urban district or rural parish. As the words will appear the second time the Subsection will read, being a borough, urban district or parish. So apparently it is a rural parish the first time and a urban parish the second. Is this really consequential? What does it...

Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No. 2) BILL: Clause 16. — (Relief for rural entertainments.) (21 Jun 1948)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: My hon. Friend is mistaken. I represent a county constituency.
