Private Business.: GAS LIGHT AND COKE COMPANY BILL (By Order.) (18 May 1933)

Captain Hon. Arthur Hope: As the hon. Member for East Aberdeen (Mr. Boothby) said, there are not many arguments which have not already been used. I should like, however, to echo what has been said by my hon. Friend as to the necessity of passing this Bill this evening. It has been considered for a very long time in Committee. The whole of the case has been put very ably for and against, and it was the unanimous wish...

Private Business.: GAS LIGHT AND COKE COMPANY BILL (By Order.) (18 May 1933)

Captain Hon. Arthur Hope: That is true, but it would not appeal to the individual who had to pay more for it when it went into his house. Another thing which the hon. Member for Ogmore (Mr. E. Williams) put very forcibly was, that ratepayers who are occupying council houses have the right every year, if they do not like their council, to put in men whom they do like. I do not think that the average individual in this...

Arthur Hope: Is the hon. and gallant Member aware that the jewellers' associations in this country view the decreases in duty with very real alarm indeed, and that his answer that there is no fear of further unemployment owing to the effect of the decrease is quite erroneous, and is not shared by people who know something about the industry?

Orders of the Day — Ways and Means.: Reduction of Customs Duties on Certain Musical Instruments, Clocks, etc. (1 May 1933)

Captain Hon. Arthur Hope: I should like to associate myself with the remarks of the right hon. Member for West Birmingham (Sir A. Chamberlain) and to support the Motion he has moved. When we became a tariff country one of the objects was to have trade bargains with foreign Powers, and we were perfectly prepared to see bargains made with foreign countries. My idea of bargaining is to get as much as you can and give as...

Orders of the Day — Supply. (9 Mar 1933)

Captain Hon. Arthur Hope: I should' like to join in the congratulations to the Financial Secretary on his presentation of the Estimates. There is no need for any apology on his part for the increase this year. It is obvious that last year economies were made—and rightly made —which could not be renewed in subsequent years. The increase this year, which is largely due to the better training of the Territorial Force...

Orders of the Day — Dog Racing (Local Option) Bill. (2 Dec 1932)

Orders of the Day — Dog Racing (Local Option) Bill. (2 Dec 1932)

Captain Hon. Arthur Hope: I beg to move, to leave out the word "now," and, at the end of the Question, to add the words "upon this day six months." I should like sincerely to congratulate the Mover of the Bill on his very felicitous, good-tempered and good-humoured speech. If eloquence and wit could make a bad Bill into a good one, he would succeed. I must oppose this Bill for a number of reasons. The first is that at...

Orders of the Day — Dog Racing (Local Option) Bill. (2 Dec 1932)

Captain Hon. Arthur Hope: I understand that Clause 3 also is to be taken out. Will my hon. Friend make any statement on that point?

Orders of the Day — Dog Racing (Local Option) Bill. (2 Dec 1932)

Captain Hon. Arthur Hope: I feel distinctly uneasy on this subject. The Bill is a, very short one of only eight Clauses, three of which, apparently, are to be withdrawn altogether, while there is to be a new Clause the contents of which we do not know. I think my hon. Friend might have given us some further statement as to the alterations which it is proposed to make. Of course, I understand that a private Member, in...

Orders of the Day — Dog Racing (Local Option) Bill. (2 Dec 1932)

Captain Hon. Arthur Hope: That was the impression I received of what he meant, and certainly no inquiries which had been made since then indicate that there has been an increase in betting. There always has been, and always will be, betting in this country. I have spoken on the subject to many people in all classes and walks of life, and I think that they generally now bet on the dogs rather than on the horse race. I...
