Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No. 2) BILL: Clause 37. — (Expenses allowances, etc. (22 Jun 1948)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: We were discussing the other day the question of the Raw Cotton Commission. That Commission has a certain number of part-time members, and it was agreed that that was of substantial advantage to the Commission. The Commission normally meets in Liverpool, and a number of these part-time members live in Manchester and other places where they carry on their ordinary businesses. Are we to...

Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No. 2) BILL: Clause 46. — (Charge, and amount of contribution.) (22 Jun 1948)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: I beg to second the Amendment. The ground was fairly covered during the Committee stage although I did not succeed on that occasion in making the Solicitor-General fully cognisant of my argument. I should have thought it would be possible for both right hon. and learned Gentlemen to go with us so far as to agree that it should definitely not be a financial disadvantage to a person that he...

Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No. 2) BILL: Clause 48. — (Meaning of "investment income.") (22 Jun 1948)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: I beg to second the Amendment. It has been moved in a most admirable manner, by the hon. and learned Member for East Leicester (Mr. Donovan). He made only one controversial remark when he said that his friends on the other side of the House were anxious to check fiscal injustices. I wish that we could have seen more evidence of that willingness on other Amendments which have been moved in...

Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No. 2) BILL: Clause 57. — (Provisions as to husband and wife.) (22 Jun 1948)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: I should like to express my gratitude to the right hon. Gentleman. I think the House will agree that this and the following Amendment meet a real matter of difficulty.

Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No. 2) BILL: Tenth Schedltle. — (Special provisions as to working directors.) (22 Jun 1948)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: I beg to second the Amendment. I think the Schedule as it stands is completely illogical. I would remind the Solicitor-General of the words he used on 3rd June: I think on the general principle the two sides of the Committee are not far apart. It is the case of the partnership which, notwithstanding the fact that a company has been formed, really continues in a sense to be a partnership, so...

Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No. 2) BILL: Tenth Schedltle. — (Special provisions as to working directors.) (22 Jun 1948)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: I gather from what the right hon. and learned Gentleman has said that this is to deal with directors of associated companies. Does it also apply to directors concerned with companies which are not associated? To illustrate my point, I would refer to a director of a toll company, which operates largely during the summer season; he is then the director of a garage during the winter. The two...

Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No. 2) BILL: Tenth Schedltle. — (Special provisions as to working directors.) (22 Jun 1948)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: Is the right hon. and learned Gentleman going to cover that case?

Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No. 2) BILL (25 Jun 1948)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: It is now my duty to bowl the last over of the day on behalf of the Opposition, and I can assure the right hon. Gentleman who is to follow that I will try to keep a good length. I think he will agree that we have had long and arduous discussions of this measure, and I hope he will also agree that very little time has been wasted; in fact, in my view consideration of some portions of the Bill...

Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No. 2) BILL (25 Jun 1948)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: I do not think I ought to give way to the hon. Gentleman, because he might say something worse. That is an indictment to which I would not dare to subscribe. I should have said that the right hon. and learned Gentleman was invariably clear in his arguments, although not always as convincing in the earlier stages of the Bill as he was this afternoon. We have missed the Solicitor-General this...

Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Commissions (Ministers' Evidence) (7 Jul 1948)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: Does not the Lord President of the Council think it desirable that Ministers who have made allegations against public institutions like the Press, should, when requested to do so, give evidence before Commissions inquiring into those institutions?

Orders of the Day — King's Speech: Debate on the Address (17 Sep 1948)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: Will the hon. and gallant Gentleman, to round off the picture, give the comparitive figures for the United States?

Orders of the Day — King's Speech: Debate on the Address (17 Sep 1948)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: I agree with a good deal of what was said by the hon. Member for North-West Hull (Mr. R. Mackay) and I think all those who listened to his speech will agree that it was extremely interesting. I want to thank him for his courtesy in curtailing his remarks so that I might be able to speak. I do not wish to embark on the broad flood of the economic discussion which has taken place, but rather...

Orders of the Day — King's Speech: Debate on the Address (17 Sep 1948)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: I do not want to go at too great a length into this local matter, but on the point of difference between us, we have always maintained that there is no reason why South Merseyside should not be a Development Area on its own, and North Merseyside, so far as Liverpool is concerned, retain its present powers which are those of a Development Area; there is no reason why Liverpool's special...

Orders of the Day — King's Speech: Debate on the Address (17 Sep 1948)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: My objection is to aggressive warfare. In my view the only circumstances in which warfare can be supported is if it is in defence of one's own nation or of another nation which has been attacked by an aggressor State.

Orders of the Day — Parliament Bill (21 Sep 1948)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: I feel that on one matter I shall have the support of Members on all sides, and that is that it is very difficult at this stage to find anything very new to say about this Bill; it is also very difficult either to persuade or amuseā€”at all events consciously. But that is no reason for saying nothing at all, which is what the right hon. Gentleman did in moving the Third Reading.

Orders of the Day — Parliament Bill (21 Sep 1948)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: Although it is not for me to judge what would be in Order or not, there was so little in the right hon. Gentleman's speech last night which could be answered today within the Rules of Order that I think he would have done well to add something to which we could make a reply. Apart from the right hon. Gentleman's contribution, there was a lot of interruption from his supporters during the...

Orders of the Day — Parliament Bill (21 Sep 1948)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: That is exactly what I thought I said the hon. and learned Member said. I am certainly grateful for his intervention. I thought that the case for this Bill was contained in "Let Us Face The Future." The Socialist Party would not tolerate obstruction from the House of Lords. Now we hear that there has been no obstruction and the hon. and learned Member has made a strong speech in favour of...

Orders of the Day — Parliament Bill (21 Sep 1948)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: If the hon. Member will do me the courtesy of permitting me to continue he will realise that that is the point of my argument. That task of revision has obviously assumed such formidable proportions that I was questioning whether the provisions of this Bill will allow adequate time for that to be properly carried out. I hope people will remember that statement by the Lord Chancellor when...

Orders of the Day — Parliament Bill (21 Sep 1948)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: The hon. Gentleman speaks of self-delusion. It may be he has experience on that subject, but my point, which I think will be agreed to by other Members of the House, is that it is very much better to legislate properly if we are going to legislate at all, and if there is going to be apparent incapacity on the part of this House to send forward its Bills in proper form and if this immense...

Orders of the Day — Parliament Bill (21 Sep 1948)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: I think my hon. and learned Friend has supplied the answer, the hon. Member has not read the Bill. if the country is behind the Government's proposal at the next General Election, and if those proposals are confirmed then, there should be little difference made to the programme, because, as hon. Members so well know, the intervention of a General Election and the election of a new Parliament...
