Orders of the Day — Supply.: Board of Trade. (18 Jul 1935)

Mr Cecil Pike: For months, even years, we have all attempted to impress upon the Government the necessity for the Board of Trade to inspire, either by word or deed, all industrialists to do whatever they can by way of improving plant, increasing efficiency, cutting down overhead costs and everything else connected with industry in order to bring more trade to the country. None have been more forcible in...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Board of Trade. (18 Jul 1935)

Mr Cecil Pike: The deputy-leader of the Opposition shakes his head. If he does not believe that himself, perhaps he will believe his own leader, who, last Friday, in this House said: We have to live in a very imperfect world, and we have to do the best we can in those conditions. We are trying very hard to convert this country to Socialism. We may never be able to do it, and therefore, I expect the hon....

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Board of Trade. (18 Jul 1935)

Mr Cecil Pike: But if tariffs are the only method by which you can overcome this pernicious free competition and these free imports, it is obviously logical that that is the machinery, until you devise something different, that must be adopted in order to prevent the growth of such competition. I am convinced that even if the hon. Member in this House says that he is not in favour of tariffs he will not...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Home Office (16 Jul 1935)

Mr Cecil Pike: I am sorry that the hon. Member for Westhoughton (Mr. Rhys Davies) is not in his place, because I consider that he was guilty of a gross misrepresentation of the annual report of the Chief Inspector of Factories and Workshops, in that, while he quoted certain points from the report, he omitted to give the analysis of the inspector explaining those points. I am glad to see that the hon. Member...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Home Office (16 Jul 1935)

Mr Cecil Pike: That he either did know and was not telling the truth, or that he had not read the report and had no justification for his statement. If the hon. Member, instead of looking at this issue through political spectacles, would look at it through the sincere spectacles which he claims to wear, it would be much fairer to the Home Office. The speech of the Home Secretary was an excellent survey of...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Home Office (16 Jul 1935)

Mr Cecil Pike: If the hon. Member was there I can understand the disturbances. I merely gave the case of West Toxteth because last year the House spent a whole day in discussing how to prevent such occurrences at public meetings and specific pledges were given that something would be done in conjunction with the Home Office by the leaders of all parties in this House to bring such a calamitous condition of...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Home Office (16 Jul 1935)

Mr Cecil Pike: As my argument has served its purpose I will leave it where it is. I had anticipated that hon. Members on the Opposition benches would have raised the question before I did. Having lost the opportunity and lost the game I hope they will not grumble any more. I come back to a question of police methods in relation to the prevention of crime which I referred to earlier in my speech. In this...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Home Office (16 Jul 1935)

Mr Cecil Pike: No, but in Sheffield. When I asked the late Home Secretary whether his attention had been called to the summing up of the judge in the case the right hon. Gentleman said the information which had reached him was such that he was calling for the full papers in the case and would inform me later whether any action on his part was called for. I take it that I shall be justified in going a little...
