Works of Art (Export) (26 May 1944)

Mr Andrew MacLaren: I am very keen to hold everything beautiful that we have in this country, and to preserve it from the clutches of the speculator in the auction-room; but that is not possible—I wish it were. Once the suggestion of the Noble Lord, about getting £1,000,000 behind some protective measure, is carried out, you have opened the door. Then the charlatan gets abroad. He will produce all the...

Works of Art (Export) (26 May 1944)

Mr Andrew MacLaren: We can always get X-ray apparatus at the market price, and can always produce more X-ray apparatus, but we cannot go on producing half-a-dozen Titians every few weeks. There is that difference. Once we put public money at the disposal of people for buying works of art we shall get robbed, for there are houses in this country to-day getting ready to catch high prices for these things. I am...

Orders of the Day — Food and Drugs (Milk and Dairies) Bill (19 May 1944)

Mr Andrew MacLaren: When I came into the House to-day I was rather astonished to find that there was hot the usual happy party around the Minister of Agriculture, and when I learned that he was not giving out subsidies, I could understand the violent reaction. To come into this House on Tuesday was rather like coming to a social gathering; there was no opposition, and everybody was delighted with what was...

Orders of the Day — Food and Drugs (Milk and Dairies) Bill (19 May 1944)

Mr Andrew MacLaren: Yes, let us be quite frank and blunt and fearless about this matter. It is time we got rid of this state of affairs. We are tolerating a good deal of it in local government, and it is becoming the talk of the country just now. But let us not go into that point any further—

Orders of the Day — Food and Drugs (Milk and Dairies) Bill (19 May 1944)

Mr Andrew MacLaren: I approve of what the Minister is proposing to do, because I feel it important that something should be done. Especially do I feel that the "vets," who will be employed, must be efficient. I see gentlemen operating as "vets" who must have served their time making toys in Germany. I do not know who made them "vets." They are almost as efficient as some of the managers and officials I have had...

Orders of the Day — Statutory Rules and Orders (17 May 1944)

Mr Andrew MacLaren: I have listened to this Debate all day and I must say that the Home Secretary's speech was rather a shock to me. After reading the speeches which he has delivered during week-ends, I wondered where the Home Secretary was going to end. Apparently today he has changed his views, and now a Committee is to be set up. For more years than I care to count, long before I came into this House, I used...

Monetary Policy (10 May 1944)

Mr Andrew MacLaren: If we are not to discuss whether there is to be a free economy or a controlled economy, the right hon. and gallant Gentleman should not be so insistent on reminding us that the Prime Minister has forestalled us from discussing any alternative.

Monetary Policy (10 May 1944)

Mr Andrew MacLaren: I wish this nineteenth century business could be stopped. If we are going to refer to dates, the eighteenth century was much more Protectionist.
