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?

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...

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...

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...

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...

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

Mr Selwyn Lloyd: Does that include selling certain commodities at a loss?
