I come from Lancashire, and represent a Division which has not benefited to any great extent by the improvement in employment. I have personal knowledge of many cases of real hardship, and, as has been said, these are an inarticulate class. They are a silent class, and they are a proud class, and they are being...

I do not propose to follow the arguments of many of the speakers, because they would be better confined to the Committee stage. I think that the Minister of Health is taking the right course by leading up to gradual decontrol in 1938 "and no longer." I was glad to hear the hon. Member for St. Albans...

Major Thomas Jesson: That is the point. It can take over these other omnibuses but it may not do so.

Major Thomas Jesson: As a new and hitherto silent Member of this House, may I be permitted to crave the indulgence that is so generously extended to those who find themselves addressing it for the first time?

Orders of the Day — Children and Young Persons Bill. (12 Feb 1932)

Major Thomas Jesson: Sometimes they call me Tom Thumb. My point is that you can make mutton look like tender lamb. My last point is that of finance. In the Financial Memorandum, the Under-Secretary has told us that it is anticipated that there will be a saving of £8,000 per annum to the Exchequer.
