Orders of the Day — Armaments. (30 Jul 1934)

Mr Reginald Banks: I admit that I possess no technical qualification for dealing with and criticising this Motion, and I doubt whether any great technical qualifications are required. It seems to me that a rudimentary knowledge of recent history and the elements of logic, with a pinch of common sense, are sufficient to oppose a Motion which would have been foolish any time these last five years, but in July,...

Privilege. (13 Jun 1934)

Mr Reginald Banks: I find myself in the same difficulty as my right hon. Friend the Member for Hillhead (Sir R. Home) and I doubt whether my difficulty is eased by the statement that the observations in paragraph 21 do not alter the law. If they do not alter the law they certainly are declaratory of very important principles of law. Like my right hon. Friend, I am ready to accept the verdict of the Committee...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: Clause 6. — (Customs Duty on patent leather.) (4 Jun 1934)

Mr Reginald Banks: Does it not follow that anybody who does not agree with that theory of economics is to be accused of defending trade interests?

Orders of the Day — Unemployment Bill.: Clause 7. — (Amendments as to third statutory condition.) (3 May 1934)

Mr Reginald Banks: The hon. Member for Gorbals (Mr. Buchanan) has spoken, as he always speaks, with knowledge, with charm and with force, but the whole of his argument was directed not to the form of words which we are discussing but to a form of words which has been abandoned. His reminiscences were reminiscences of the not-genuinely-seeking-work period. The examples he gave were examples which we found under...

Orders of the Day — Unemployment Bill.: Clause 7. — (Amendments as to third statutory condition.) (3 May 1934)

Mr Reginald Banks: That is what the words palpably and obviously mean.

Orders of the Day — Unemployment Bill.: Clause 7. — (Amendments as to third statutory condition.) (3 May 1934)

Mr Reginald Banks: Yes, it is a genuine interpretation, but I am afraid that my hon. Friend is genuinely seeking to distort the meaning, and I am afraid the decision will be against him. There is only one minor matter that I would refer to. The hon. Member for Gorbals might genuinely have sought work at the Bar, and have succeeded. He has, however, fallen into a fallacy. He said that we do not impose penal...

Orders of the Day — Unemployment Bill.: Sixth Schedule. — (Constitution and Proceedings of Appeal Tribunals.) (25 Apr 1934)

Mr Reginald Banks: When the Parliamentary Secretary says that the appellant will be allowed to be accompanied by a friend, does he mean that the friend is to preserve silence?

Oral Answers to Questions — Dangerous Drugs. (12 Apr 1934)

Mr Reginald Banks: Is it not a fact that up to the present only one case, that to which previous reference has been made, shows a death attributable to one of these drugs. If that be so, the hon. Member's allusion to several instances would be inaccurate?

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce.: Scotland (Exports to America). (12 Apr 1934)

Mr Reginald Banks: Can the right hon. Gentleman say on what particular commodities the distinction between Great Britain and Scotland is most important?

Oral Answers to Questions — Public Health.: Dangerous Drugs. (22 Mar 1934)

Mr Reginald Banks: Is my right hon. Friend aware that the Coroner stated that the manufacturers had in fact taken ample precautions against the misuse of the drug by warning on the bottle and otherwise, and that nobody was to blame except the unfortunate young lady who disregarded the instructions?

Orders of the Day — Unemployment Bill.: Clause 31. — (Interpretation of Part I and construction of references.) (13 Feb 1934)

Mr Reginald Banks: The constituency of the Borough of Swindon is one of those large industrial centres in the middle of a rural area which are naturally much concerned in this matter. It exercises a great many powers which are delegated to it by the county council: the choice of employment work under Section 107 of the Education Act; the administration of the Unemployment Insurance in the case of juveniles...

Orders of the Day — India (Terrorism). (13 Feb 1934)

Mr Reginald Banks: I hope that the right hon. Gentleman to-night, in view of the great seriousness of the subject which the Noble Lady has raised, will give us all the information in his power, and will be as open and as candid with the House as he thinks proper to be. Nobody, of course, would ever accuse the right hon. Gentleman of either distorting or suppressing the facts of the case, but some of us are...

Orders of the Day — Hotels and Restaurants Bill. (9 Feb 1934)

Mr Reginald Banks: A bottle in every bedroom.

Orders of the Day — Hotels and Restaurants Bill. (9 Feb 1934)

Mr Reginald Banks: What the hon. and learned Member advanced was that he did not like to think that a tankard was to go off the table. But we should have a bottle in the bedroom instead. It is in Canada, where there is no licence, that you do find a whisky bottle in every bedroom.

Orders of the Day — Hotels and Restaurants Bill. (9 Feb 1934)

Mr Reginald Banks: How can that happen under this Bill, since, if all the pressure of the trade results in the sale of intoxicants to the extent of more than 50 per cent. of the total receipts, automatically this hotel licence lapses.

Orders of the Day — Licensing (Standardisation of Hours) Bill. (8 Dec 1933)

Mr Reginald Banks: Does the hon. Member desire to see working men's clubs go bankrupt?

Orders of the Day — Licensing (Standardisation of Hours) Bill. (8 Dec 1933)

Mr Reginald Banks: I am glad to have that admission.

Orders of the Day — Licensing (Standardisation of Hours) Bill. (8 Dec 1933)

Mr Reginald Banks: I would like the Under-Secretary to be a little clearer. I do not think he is quite accurate when he says that the permitted hours with regard to licensed premises and clubs are the same. There is this essential difference, that whereas the magistrates can arrange the hours—

Orders of the Day — Licensing (Standardisation of Hours) Bill. (8 Dec 1933)

Mr Reginald Banks: May I make a correction purely on a matter of law? The consolidation Act is the Act of 1910 and the Act which prescribes the hours and procedure now in operation is the Act of 1921—which is an example of piecemeal legislation and therefore against the hon. Member's argument.

Orders of the Day — Licensing (Standardisation of Hours) Bill. (8 Dec 1933)

Mr Reginald Banks: We have heard a great deal this afternoon about the Royal Commission. It is true that nobody can treat the findings of such a body without respect. It is also true, as my hon. Friend has said, that we are perfectly free in this House. More than that, we in this House ought not to put our own opinions in the background just because some Royal Commission, at some time or another has come to...
