Wing Commander Archibald James: A few days ago I put down a Question to the Chancellor of the Exchequer on the subject of speculation in land, and I urged him to look into the matter.

Orders of the Day — Food Supplies (Small Traders). (25 Jul 1941)

Wing Commander Archibald James: My hon. Friend the Member for Wood Green (Mr. Baxter) has raised this matter with such eloquence and used such convincing arguments that I inter- vene only for a few moments.
