Orders of the Day — Development (Loan Guarantees and Grants) Bill. (19 Jul 1929)

Mr William Brown: I hope I shall not get outside the point of Order, but, with great respect, I regard that Treasury doctrine as being the most relevant that has yet been mentioned in connection with this Bill, because, if that doctrine be true, this Bill must fail of its effect. The ex-Chancellor of the Exchequer devoted a considerable amount of time to elaborating that doctrine, and to basing substantial...

Orders of the Day — Development (Loan Guarantees and Grants) Bill. (19 Jul 1929)

Mr William Brown: I hope you will allow me to proceed. This is a Bill under which the Treasury takes power to utilise public money in grants or loans to various enterprises for the purpose of stimulating employment. That much, at least, will be common ground. Hon. Members on the benches opposite say that the Bill must fail in its effect, because any money that the State takes will be withdrawn from private...

Orders of the Day — Development (Loan Guarantees and Grants) Bill. (19 Jul 1929)

Mr William Brown: Increase it. Another assumption underlying that argument, which again need not be true. It relates to a point which I mentioned in the House in an earlier discussion. Of the pool of capital available each year for investments, between one-half and one-third is exported from this country altogether. Between one-half and one-third of the new investments made from this country each year,...

Orders of the Day — Development (Loan Guarantees and Grants) Bill. (19 Jul 1929)

Mr William Brown: We have done it before, and I see no reason why we should not do it again. The right hon. Member for Carnarvon Boroughs (Mr. Lloyd George), who has a courage which I should like to see imitated in other parts of the House, did it when the War was on, and if, for the purposes of successfully financing the War, we could place an embargo upon the export of capital, I suggest that we are...

Orders of the Day — Development (Loan Guarantees and Grants) Bill. (19 Jul 1929)

Mr William Brown: If I am not demonstrating that I am, above all things, dealing with the general principles of this Bill, I am exceedingly sorry. I am getting nearer to broad principles than most Members who have taken part.

Orders of the Day — Development (Loan Guarantees and Grants) Bill. (19 Jul 1929)

Mr William Brown: In view of what you have said, I will not pursue that aspect of the argument. I will show that the alleged Treasury doctrine only remains true while two conditions are satisfied. One is that there is no effective control of new investments within our territory, and no control over the export of capital from the country, and I express the personal hope, as a Socialist, that a Labour Government...

Orders of the Day — Development (Loan Guarantees and Grants) Bill. (19 Jul 1929)

Mr William Brown: Although that is so, I like to see fair play towards my opponents, and I think there has been nothing quite so contemptible for a long time as the use which the ex-Chancellor of the Exchequer has made of the name of the Treasury in regard to this alleged Treasury doctrine. Clearly the ex-Chancellor himself ought to have assumed responsibility for that doctrine as he quoted it against...

Orders of the Day — Development (Loan Guarantees and Grants) Bill. (19 Jul 1929)

Mr William Brown: May I keep within the point of Order by saying that I welcome the grounds on which right hon. Gentlemen have opposed this Bill, because I believe that the more clearly it is seen that we cannot do a tremendous deal by Bills like this within the framework of Capitalism, and the clearer hon. and right hon. Gentlemen make it that they will oppose the only alternative to Capitalism, which is...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education.: School Leaving Age and Maintenance Grants (Government Decision). (18 Jul 1929)

Mr William Brown: 80. asked the President of the Board of Education if he is now in a position to- announce when the Government; will introduce legislation to raise the school-leaving age to 15 years, with maintenance allowances for the parents of such children?

Orders of the Day — Colonial Development Bill.: Clause 1. — (Power to make advances for the purposes of Colonial development.) (18 Jul 1929)

Mr William Brown: Put your point, Winterton, and do not be so patronising.

Orders of the Day — Colonial Development Bill.: Clause 1. — (Power to make advances for the purposes of Colonial development.) (18 Jul 1929)

Mr William Brown: On a point of Order. Will you inform me whether there is any constitutional way open to an hon. Member of this House to prevent the offensive patronage of the Noble Lord?

Orders of the Day — Colonial Development Bill.: Clause 2. — (Appointment of committee, and expenses.) (18 Jul 1929)

Mr William Brown: I beg to move, in page 4, line 3, at the end, to insert the words: and shall include two representatives appointed to represent the interests of the native population. The object of this Amendment is to ensure that not only shall the Treasury point of view, the business man's point of view and the point of view of colonial development be represented on the committee, but that, in addition,...

Orders of the Day — Colonial Development Bill.: Clause 2. — (Appointment of committee, and expenses.) (18 Jul 1929)

Mr William Brown: If I am to understand that the Colonial Office will use its good offices with the Governments of the Colonies which receive advances or loans under this Clause, in favour of associating with the administration of those loans persons who represent the native point of view, that will largely meet the purpose of my Amendment.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport.: Road Grants. (17 Jul 1929)

Mr William Brown: Can the hon. Member say whether, in connection with grants under the Unemployment Scheme as well as the Colonial Development Scheme, the same kind of Clause will be inserted?

Colonial Development [Money]. (15 Jul 1929)

Mr William Brown: Like the hon. and gallant Member for Gainsborough (Captain Crookshank), when the Money Resolution was in Committee I tried to get some information on certain aspects of this question which particularly interested me. If the hon. and gallant Member was unfortunate in not having his question answered, I was equally unfortunate in my efforts to extract some information as to the conditions under...

Colonial Development [Money]. (15 Jul 1929)

Mr William Brown: May I have a reply to my question as to whether there will be conditions attached to these grants.
