Orders of the Day — Finance Bill. ( 7 Jul 1937)

Sir Francis Acland: I should like to point out that after line 14 of the Schedule there should be the line: Soya bean meal and cake. By a printer's error that was omitted.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill. ( 7 Jul 1937)

Sir Francis Acland: Surely, those articles would be covered by the general phrase "All other feeding stuffs." Cake is a feeding stuff.

Orders of the Day — Milk (Amendment) [Money]. ( 5 Jul 1937)

Sir Francis Acland: The Minister makes it a little difficult for us to continue with another instalment of subsidy in the hope that before this new instalment is extended something may at least be done to put our milk house in order. I will give three reasons for the difficulty that I feel. The first is that we do not seem to be yet within reasonable reach of a policy which will strike at the root of the milk...

Orders of the Day — Milk (Amendment) [Money]. ( 5 Jul 1937)

Sir Francis Acland: I mean since then—a bad bargain this year.

Agriculture [Money]. (29 Jun 1937)

Sir Francis Acland: Can my right hon. Friend explain to us how it is possible to stabilise prices at a reasonable level without subsidies?

Agriculture [Money]. (29 Jun 1937)

Sir Francis Acland: This has been a very interesting Debate. We have heard on this side an expression of the general feeling that parts of the Government's scheme are excellent, while from the other side the speeches have, for the most part, expressed the view that all the scheme is good but that hon. Members opposite would have been glad of more. That is common form, but I think the hon. Member for King's Lynn...

Agriculture [Money]. (29 Jun 1937)

Sir Francis Acland: I thank the Minister very much. That will be a considerable help. I think that I can say, in regard to the organisation of which I am President, that they will not be advised to get lime unless it is necessary and desirable that they should. With regard to oats and barley, f see on the one side the danger of piling up subsidies. I have always felt that, however desirable that might be for the...

Exchange Equalisation Account [Money]. (28 Jun 1937)

Sir Francis Acland: I think everybody will agree that the statement of the Chancellor of the Exchequer at the end of last week with regard to this Resolution, being made when it was, did a great deal of good, and that it was at once a sedative and a tonic. It evidently seemed to finish off the last remains of the gold scare. It meant that we were willing to help the United States and France to hold their...

Payment of Members. (22 Jun 1937)

Sir Francis Acland: I speak under a slight handicap this afternoon because the hon. Member of my party who was expected to speak has suddenly found himself unable to do so, and I did not happen to have been present at cur party meeting last week when this matter was discussed. I was better employed in West Cornwall perhaps. It seems to be difficult to get away from the main point which the Prime Minister made,...

Payment of Members. (22 Jun 1937)

Sir Francis Acland: He did not speak on that day, but that may have been so at another stage. I looked carefully through the debate on that date, which was on ordinary party lines, and the Amendment which I have read was voted for by the late Sir Austen Chamberlain and Mr. Baldwin. It is an excellent thing that the view of the Government on this matter has been Liberalised, though whether it is due to the fact...

Payment of Members. (22 Jun 1937)

Sir Francis Acland: Does the right hon. Gentleman remember that he voted in favour of the£400 a year?

Orders of the Day — Ways and Means.: Charge of National Defence Contribution. (21 Jun 1937)

Sir Francis Acland: When I read the outlines of National Defence Contribution, Mark 2, when it came out in the White Paper, my first feeling was to wonder whether there was enough in it to give us a whole dray's discussion. I do not intend my contribution to the Debate to be of such a length as will help to answer that question in the affirmative. The main points are that the Government have done what the House...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Board of Education. (14 Jun 1937)

Sir Francis Acland: I hope that I may be allowed to add the congratulations which we all wish to offer to the Minister for the understanding and interest he has shown in the speech which he has made to us. We may congratulate him on having made a good start in another direction by the charming choice he has made of a Parliamentary Private Secretary. I hope that he will not feel I am in any way saying anything...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Board of Education. (14 Jun 1937)

Sir Francis Acland: That statement is extraordinarily welcome to me, and will help us a very great deal, because we had been afraid that what happened indicated a change in policy, and the point I wanted to make was that any change of policy of that type would be extremely disastrous. As we get the senior schools built the village schools are to be reorganised as junior schools. In the ordinary rural districts...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Board of Education. (14 Jun 1937)

Sir Francis Acland: There is not much in it nowadays.

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries. ( 7 Jun 1937)

Sir Francis Acland: As we on these benches were responsible for putting down the Votes, I may say that we have no objection to that course.
