Expiring Laws Bill.: Clause 3. — (Certain Acts to be continued temporarily.) (28 Jul 1922)

Mr Alfred Waterson: I regret that the hon. Member for Ardwick should attempt to belittle the opportunity that is afforded to a private Member to bring forward Amendments and to endeavour to persuade the Government to accept them.

Mr Alfred Waterson: I beg to move, in Sub-section (1), to leave out the words "as a retail purveyor of milk." My right hon.

Friend said he would make some inquiries...

This Amendment is moved with the deliberate intention of getting some protection, or perhaps I should say, some powers for small localities that...

Mr Alfred Waterson: I have no desire to follow the Noble Lord the Member for South Battersea (Viscount Curzon), or at any rate compete with him, in regard to knowledge of motor cars and the particular pace at which they should travel, but he referred to the Motor Car Act, and said that probably the Government would introduce another Motor Car Act, and another Act upon the top of that, so that it was most...
