Orders of the Day — Trade Disputes and Trade Unions Bill (12 Feb 1946)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: Hon. Members on the other side of the House have imputed to hon. Members on this side, I think, stupidity and arrogance. It may well be considered both stupid and arrogant for a new Member to attempt to make his maiden speech on so controversial a subject. I should like to express my envy and my admiration of the way in which the hon. Member for Walton (Mr. Haworth) conducted himself in...

Orders of the Day — Trade Disputes and Trade Unions Bill (12 Feb 1946)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: If my hon. and learned Friend says that the answer is that it will weaken the law against intimidation, I think that that is an extremely bad thing.

Orders of the Day — Trade Disputes and Trade Unions Bill (12 Feb 1946)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: I do not understand how my hon. and learned Friend can consider that the repeal of this Act will strengthen the law against intimidation. In any event, in 1930, when the Labour Government of that day made what I suggest was a very much more honest attempt to amend the law on this subject, their proposals in relation to the law of intimidation involved the preservation of a great deal of what...

Orders of the Day — Defence Policy (5 Mar 1946)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: When I left the Army, the last order I received from my colleagues was that I should never, in any circumstances, attempt to address this House on any matter related to military affairs. There is certainly a great danger of an amateur with a little knowledge gained in abnormal times being rather a menace in that respect. I therefore put forward what I have to say with great diffidence. The...

Houses (Court Possession Orders) (9 Jul 1946)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: I think the hon. Member for Chislehurst (Mr. G. Wallace) who raised this matter deserves congratulations because it is one of those very human problems to which it is necessary that we should direct our attention from time to time. Nothing is more heartrending than the task of dealing with people who cannot find accommodation. I believe this jurisdiction is very humanly administered by the...

Houses (Court Possession Orders) (9 Jul 1946)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: I was speaking for the part of the country from which I come, and which I represent. The hon. Member's figures were not commensurate with the number of warrants, which was much higher than the figures of successful actions. Warrants are extremely rarely granted. My point was that if the average court was given the impression that a dispossessed tenant would have priority, it would increase...

Orders of the Day — Supply: MR. Bellenger's Statement (13 Mar 1947)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: I feel that one should start by offering one's sympathy to the Secretary of State for War in the trying ordeal of which mention has been made. I feel he will emerge as a practical master of all-round defence, with some knowledge of what it is to be overrun from behind. I do think that all of us on this side of the House welcome the interest that has been shown by the opposite benches on these...

Orders of the Day — Cotton (Centralised Buying) Bill: New Clause. — (Compensation for injury to business.) (18 Apr 1947)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: I support the proposed new Clauses and I welcome very much the reasonable speech that has just been made by the hon. Member for Ashton-under-Lyne (Mr. Rhodes). I would remind him that we must deal with the situation as it will be under the operation of the proposals in the Bill. The Bill will leave to the Liverpool Cotton Market only the functions of acting as selling agents for American...

Orders of the Day — Cotton (Centralised Buying) Bill: New Clause. — (Compensation for injury to business.) (18 Apr 1947)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: I accept that correction, which is true. What have been called third country dealings are left, but I doubt very much whether that side of the business will develop very much. The Liverpool market is gone. The Bill deals with the case of the principals who have lost their businesses, to which they have devoted in the past a great deal of time, training and money, and they have suffered, as...

Orders of the Day — Cotton (Centralised Buying) Bill: New Clause. — (Compensation for injury to business.) (18 Apr 1947)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: The non. Gentleman used the term "very substantial." Does not he admit that the functions to which he has referred amount in total to a very small proportion of the form of business previously done?

Orders of the Day — Cotton (Centralised Buying) Bill: Clause 1. — (Establishment and primary functions of the Raw Cotton Commission.) (18 Apr 1947)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: I should like the Minister to clear up this question of re-export and to tell us whether this is a matter which it is proposed to leave to private purchasers.

Orders of the Day — Cotton (Centralised Buying) Bill: Clause 2. — (Raw cotton to be imported only by the Commission.) (18 Apr 1947)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: I am glad that the Minister has moved the Amendment. The absence of any mention of samples in the Bill showed the danger of a bureaucratic or theoretical approach to any sort of business transaction. It appears fantastic that it should have been kept out of the Bill. Many spinners have been adversely affected by the restrictions imposed upon the sending out of samples. I am glad that the...

Orders of the Day — Cotton (Centralised Buying) Bill: Clause 4. — (Punishment for prohibited importation or dealing.) (18 Apr 1947)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: I want to press the Solicitor-General to reconsider this matter. He put the case against the Amendment with his usual courtesy and clarity, but I am asking him to proceed on the principle accepted in the Gilbert and Sullivan piece, of letting the punishment fit the crime. What is the crime likely to be? It is likely to be some infringement by a private merchant upon the activities of a...

Orders of the Day — Cotton (Centralised Buying) Bill: Clause 26. — (Exercise of powers of Board of Trade.) (18 Apr 1947)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: The hon. Lady is usually controversial, and I do not propose to follow her in the controversial remarks which she has made. I want to bring back the argument to the more serious points. The first point which, I submit, is to be made against this Bill is the fact that it will involve the State in a colossal gamble. When we first began discussion of this matter, any mention of gambling or...

Orders of the Day — Transport Bill: Clause 16. — (Compensation.) (28 Apr 1947)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: I beg to move, in page 18, line 10, at the end, to insert: of such amount as will yield interest on the values of the securities arrived at in accordance with the provisions of the next succeeding section at a rate equivalent to the average of the mean of the interest yield obtainable on reasonably comparable Government securities on the dates specified in Subsection (2) of that Section. This...

Orders of the Day — Transport Bill: Clause 16. — (Compensation.) (28 Apr 1947)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: And sincerity.

Orders of the Day — Clause 5. — (The Executives.) (29 Apr 1947)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: According to Subsection (4) of this Clause, the Executives are to be the agents of the Commission in the exercise of such functions as the Commission shall delegate to them. If they are the Commission's agents, why should not the Commission have the initiative with regard to their number and their names? In Clause 4, for example, provision is made for the Minister, after consultation with the...

Orders of the Day — Transport Bill: Clause 14. — (General effect of vesting of undertakings.) (30 Apr 1947)

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: What would be the position if a third party had rights under such a contract?
