Orders of the Day — Pensions Increase [Money]. (5 Jun 1924)

Mr John Simpson: The right hon. Gentleman who has just sat down, in introducing the Bill in 1920, with reference to the age limit and the means limit, used these words: It is obvious that some strict limitation had to be put upon those whose pensions were to be increased if the expense was to be within the limits of the country at the present moment. He went on to say: The limit chosen has been an income...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: War Charges (Validity) (No. 2) Bill. (4 Jun 1924)

Mr John Simpson: I do not want to delay the House, but I think there is one question which ought to be raised before the Bill passes. When the Ways and Means Resolution was passed on the 8th April, the intention was to give legal validity to charges of three kinds:— either on, or in connection with, the grant of licences or permits … or in connection with the control of supplies or of the prices of...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: War Charges (Validity) (No. 2) Bill. (4 Jun 1924)

Mr John Simpson: I rise to a point of Order. I wish to ask whether at this stage it is competent for me to suggest that the Bill is not in order, that the Bill is not drafted in accordance with the Money Resolution. The Resolution is perfectly clear. It was the intention of the Committee that milk should not be affected by the Bill at all. These charges the President of the Board of Trade has applied were...

Orders of the Day — Agricultural Wages Bill. (2 Jun 1924)

Mr John Simpson: I am sure the House has listened with great interest to the moving appeal made by the hon. Gentleman who has just sat down, and who is such an experienced master of his subject. There seems to be no question in any part of the House as to the position of the agricultural labourer. The trade which he follows is admittedly a sweated trade, just as much as those trades were sweated in regard to...

Orders of the Day — Agricultural Wages Bill. (2 Jun 1924)

Mr John Simpson: I agree that the justification for State interference in the regulation of wages must undoubtedly be strong, because it is an extreme measure for the State to step in between employer and workmen, and say "You shall pay a minimum wage of so much." At the same time, it is admitted that a large number of the population in this industry are not getting enough to eat day by day. This was pointed...

Orders of the Day — WAR CHARGES (VALIDITY) (No. 2) BILL. (21 May 1924)

Mr John Simpson: On a point of Order. I understand that you rule this Amendment out of order on the ground that milk was excluded at the time of the Ways and Means Resolution. May I draw attention to the Ways and Means Resolution? It will be noted that it refers to three separate kinds of charge. In the first place, it refers to charges made for or in connection with the grant of licences or permits issued or...

Orders of the Day — WAR CHARGES (VALIDITY) (No. 2) BILL. (21 May 1924)

Mr John Simpson: May I point out that it in the Bill as it stands, when you read it the Preamble, it is perfectly clear that the words "other than milk" only apply to those charges which are included in "B" in the Preamble. If you look at line 7 on the next page you will find that that is so. It has nothing to say to the charges for licences for the sale of milk which come under the first heading, and,...

Pensions Increase [Money]. (19 May 1924)

Mr John Simpson: Their was one point made by an hon. Gentleman opposite in regard to the police. There is a second exception, the age-limit exception, which excludes all men over 60 years, and hits the police force very hard indeed. It is difficult to understand why the exception should be made. I suppose that the assumption was that a man below 60 would be able to find some work to eke out his old age...
