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

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: I do not propose to argue the merits of the hon. and learned Member's point. He said that I put forward a point which I knew to be completely false.

Orders of the Day — Iron and Steel Bill (16 Nov 1948)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: I think those of us who have listened to this Debate during the past two days have been rather struck by the difference in tempo each day. Yesterday the Minister presented a very smooth facade, and apart from occasional outbursts—one, for example, by the hon. Member for Barrow-in-Furness (Mr. Monslow)—on the whole the proceedings were extremely quiet. Today, we started with a speech of a...

Orders of the Day — Iron and Steel Bill (16 Nov 1948)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: If the hon. Member is in a position to do that, then some of the things which he said about the bad old days came with singularly ill grace. I understand I am the last speaker to be called on this side of the House this evening and I wish to sum up the state of the argument as it seems to me at the present time. The hon. Member for East Nottingham (Mr. Harrison), and the hon. Member for...

Orders of the Day — Royton Cottage Hospital (Transfer) (18 Jan 1949)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: I understand that the Minister wants to use this cottage hospital as a cottage hospital. If that is so, for how long does he intend so to use it; or is it the intention ultimately to make it merely an emergency hospital and to transfer the more permanent patients to a larger and new institution?

Orders of the Day — Royton Cottage Hospital (Transfer) (18 Jan 1949)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: Will the hon. Gentleman answer the point I made? Will he say that there is no intention at all of changing the function of the hospital and no scheme afoot to turn it into a casualty clearing station?

Orders of the Day — Minister of Food (Financial Powers) Bill (20 Jan 1949)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: I have been rather provoked into saying a few words by some of the things which the Minister himself has said. When I first saw this Measure I had considerable misgivings, but I agree entirely with what my right hon. Friend the Member for North Leeds (Mr. Peake) said about it. Personally, I dislike intensely these trading activities of the Ministry of Food and, subject to certain...

Orders of the Day — War Damage (Public Utility Undertakings, etc.) Bill (4 Feb 1949)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: I agree with the remarks of the hon. Member for West Woolwich (Mr. Berry) about the contribution which was made by our public utilities to the war effort. I represent a Merseyside constituency, and I know of the tremendous work done in order to keep the port going in very difficult circumstances, and those efforts reflected the very greatest credit on all concerned. With regard to the Bill,...

Orders of the Day — War Damage (Public Utility Undertakings, etc.) Bill (4 Feb 1949)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: I think that the right hon. and learned Gentleman has dealt with the question of claims, and has said that there are no further claims to come in. If further claims do come in, is there any machinery for dealing with them?

Orders of the Day — War Damage (Public Utility Undertakings, etc.) Bill (4 Feb 1949)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: Was notification given to the public utility undertakings on this point? Were they given a final date?

Orders of the Day — War Damage (Public Utility Undertakings, etc.) Bill (4 Feb 1949)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: The right hon. Gentleman used the phrase "the claims will go in property by property." I understood that all the claims had been received and assessed.

Orders of the Day — Juries Bill: Clause 5. — (Reimbursement of Local Authorities of Payments Attributable to Civil Business at Assizes.) (14 Feb 1949)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: I wish to reinforce what my hon. and learned Friend the Member for Daventry (Mr. Manningham-Buller) has just said. On a circuit not altogether unknown to the right hon. and learned Gentleman, the work is becoming very heavy indeed, and any further burden will be the final straw. I suggest that serious steps should be taken to strengthen and increase the staff that is available.

Orders of the Day — Juries Bill: Clause 17. — (Abolition of Special Juries.) (14 Feb 1949)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: I have no complaint to make about the approach of the Attorney-General to this matter, but I rather agree with my hon. and learned Friend the Member for Brighton (Mr. Marlowe) that it did not lie in the mouth of the right hon. and learned Gentleman to impute in this matter political prejudice to our side of the Committee. That was rather borne out by the interjection of the hon. and learned...

Orders of the Day — Juries Bill: Clause 18. — (Saving for City of London Special Juries in Commercial Causes.) (14 Feb 1949)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: I am not altogether satisfied with the right hon. and learned Gentleman's reply, and there are two reasons for that dissatisfaction. During the Second Reading Debate the Attorney-General said: The one exception which we propose to make is that which relates to the special jury for the City of London. We think it may be useful to retain that special jury in the trial of cases in the commercial...

Orders of the Day — Juries Bill: Clause 18. — (Saving for City of London Special Juries in Commercial Causes.) (14 Feb 1949)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: I apologise to the right hon. and learned Gentleman. I was not seeking to give an inaccurate representation of what he said. I was putting it colloquially. What he said was that there were some of His Majesty's judges who were more fitted to try commercial cases than others.

Orders of the Day — Juries Bill: Clause 18. — (Saving for City of London Special Juries in Commercial Causes.) (14 Feb 1949)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: In practice, usually one. We have known instances when the judge has not been a person who has practised solely in the commercial court. However that may be, what we are putting forward is the necessity for having a jury of experts. It seems to me that if the judge were fortified by the presence of a jury of people of great knowledge and experience in these matters possibly the ordinary...

Orders of the Day — Electricity Undertakings (Staff Compensation) (9 Mar 1949)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: I thought I should find myself in violent disagreement with the hon. Member for Wimbledon (Mr. Palmer) when he indulged in the usual sort of smear campaign against private enterprise in the past and then failed to produce the necessary evidence. However, my antipathy to him on that ground was somewhat lessened later on when he subjected the regulations to a critical analysis. I do not think...

Orders of the Day — Electricity Undertakings (Staff Compensation) (9 Mar 1949)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: I appreciate your Ruling, Mr. Deputy-Speaker. I was only going to make a passing reference. I think that I would be in Order in putting the argument in this way, that it seems to me highly illogical for a Government, the members of which refuse to fix limits for the remuneration of members of public corporations, and refuse any sug- gested limit on the ground that they must pay the rate for...

Orders of the Day — Electricity Undertakings (Staff Compensation) (9 Mar 1949)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: My point was rather different. If the hon. Gentleman will consult with a certain colleague of his, he will find that that matter is worthy of reconsideration. The only other matter on the definitions is that of war service. If we look at the Transport Commission Regulations again—and this really is a matter which may affect many individuals—war service means: (i) Service in any of His...

Orders of the Day — Electricity Undertakings (Staff Compensation) (9 Mar 1949)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: My whole point was to try to cover the case where it was not the customary practice.

Orders of the Day — Electricity Undertakings (Staff Compensation) (9 Mar 1949)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: The right hon. Gentleman has made no attempt to deal with the first point I put, the question of entitlement. The regulations are definitely
