Gentleman has received a report, where representatives of the dye manufacturing...

Mr John Simpson: I feel rather an interloper in entering the field when a Scottish Debate is in progress. There are, however, one or two points of general interest, and we English Members are interested in this matter because this £300,000, which is going to the Scottish landowner, is coming from the British taxpayer, and our duty, as guardians of the public purse, is to see it does not go to the wrong...

In the case which he contemplates, the tenant would apply for a license which would be refused on the ground that the landlord did not wish to press for it. In that case, would not the refusal come under the last Clause of the...

Orders of the Day — East India Loans Bill. (6 Jul 1923)

Mr John Simpson: I regret that I was not in time to hear the speech of the Noble Lord. The hon. Member who has just sat down has made such a provocative speech that it would ill become us on this side to sit quiet.
