Orders of the Day — Ways and Means. (27 Apr 1938)

Mr Morgan Jones: That is so. I think that if I put the figure at £9,000,000,000 rather than £10,000,000,000, I shall not be very far wrong in the end. In 1931, we provided £360,000,000 for National Debt services, and in that £360,000,000 we provided something like £27,250,000 for the American debt and £66,800,000 for the Sinking Fund. This year, the Chancellor is called upon to provide not£360,000,000...

Orders of the Day — Ways and Means. (27 Apr 1938)

Mr Morgan Jones: If my hon. Friend thinks it is all right, I accept that from him. If he thinks it is better to spend hundreds of millions upon armaments, which, if no war comes, will be worth just the price of scrap iron, and nothing more—if he prefers that, to spending money, as we did from 1929 to 1931, on public works for keeping our unemployed people alive, very well, I leave the choice to him, but I...

Orders of the Day — Ways and Means. (27 Apr 1938)

Mr Morgan Jones: I made it quite plain here. I will repeat it as it ought to be. Ever since 1931 the right hon. Gentleman has implied that he regards the League of Nations and its machinery as "humbug "—as Ebenezer Scrooge said. He is the Scrooge of foreign politics. So we have the bill, which is the consummation in terms of money of the treachery which the right hon. Gentleman and his colleagues have shown...

Orders of the Day — Ways and Means. (27 Apr 1938)

Mr Morgan Jones: indicated dissent.

Oral Answers to Questions — Income Tax.: China and Japan. (26 Apr 1938)

Mr Morgan Jones: asked the Prime Minister whether he has any statement to make with regard to the situation in China?

Oral Answers to Questions — Income Tax.: China and Japan. (26 Apr 1938)

Mr Morgan Jones: May we assume that the statement made by a Japanese statesman on returning to Japan recently that England was in sympathy with Japan was in no wise expressing the opinion of His Majesty's Government.

Foreign Policy. ( 4 Apr 1938)

Mr Morgan Jones: Can the hon. Member speak for the whole of Swansea?

Foreign Policy. ( 4 Apr 1938)

Mr Morgan Jones: I note that the hon. Gentleman supports much of what I said about collective security. I remember one of the slogans used by him in the last election. It was: "Vote for the National Government and send your sons to slaughter." The Government are committed by certain treaties to take action to assist France and Portugal, and we have to carry out our pledges. We discussed the question during...

Orders of the Day — Civil Aviation. (28 Mar 1938)

Mr Morgan Jones: I believe that the whole House will feel that the discussion that we have had upon the issues raised by the Cadman Report has been productive of much good. With other hon. Members I should like to join in expressing appreciation of the vigour and courage showed by Lord Cadman and his colleagues in the report which they have presented to us. Now that we are approaching the end of the...

Orders of the Day — Civil Aviation. (28 Mar 1938)

Mr Morgan Jones: I told the hon. Lady earlier that it took about nine months to provide the necessary fleet. However, it is of little use deploring the past. The question now arises, Do the Government really accept the Cadman Report? The Prime Minister announced that he has already taken certain steps, some of which have given us great pleasure on personal grounds. I understand that, broadly speaking, it may...

Orders of the Day — Civil Aviation. (28 Mar 1938)

Mr Morgan Jones: Am I to take it that he is performing his task without any remuneration?

Orders of the Day — Civil Aviation. (28 Mar 1938)

Mr Morgan Jones: I understand that Sir Charles Bruce-Gardner now holds no directorates and is not officially connected with any firm, but that he acts as an independent chairman over this group in return for which he receives a salary voted, I take it, by these 19 firms. Is that so?

Orders of the Day — Czechoslovakia (Minister's Speech). (21 Mar 1938)

Mr Morgan Jones: On a point of Order. As this is a matter which concerns a member of the Ministry and inasmuch as, I understand, he has been given notice that this matter is to be raised, is it not the business of the Government to take steps to secure his attendance?

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Lieut.-Colonel Muirhead's Statement. (15 Mar 1938)

Mr Morgan Jones: I gather that the right hon. Gentleman says that the Public Accounts Committee has similarly endorsed it. Can he put before the House any statement made in the Public Accounts Committee to that effect?

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Lieut.-Colonel Muirhead's Statement. (15 Mar 1938)

Mr Morgan Jones: I cannot recall it.

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Colonial and Middle Eastern Services. ( 8 Mar 1938)

Mr Morgan Jones: How many troops are there?

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Colonial and Middle Eastern Services. ( 8 Mar 1938)

Mr Morgan Jones: I beg to move, to reduce the Vote by £5. I do not propose to follow the right hon. Gentleman in a detailed examination of the various sections of this Vote outside that relating to Palestine, except to say that I was particularly interested in his reference to British Honduras. Requests have been repeatedly made for some expenditure in the direction which he indicated, and I believe that...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Colonial and Middle Eastern Services. ( 8 Mar 1938)

Mr Morgan Jones: May I put a point of Order to you, Sir Dennis? You suggest, quite rightly, that we are asked this afternoon to agree to an extra amount of money to be spent to meet the charge incurred by sending an extra number of troops. Am I not entitled to ask for an explanation why the troops are necessary?

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Colonial and Middle Eastern Services. ( 8 Mar 1938)

Mr Morgan Jones: I have not heard from the Minister the reason why these extra soldiers are asked for.

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Colonial and Middle Eastern Services. ( 8 Mar 1938)

Mr Morgan Jones: May I put two points? The first is that we are surely entitled to argue that the troops are in Palestine because of a failure of policy. The second point is that we are not only discussing troops, but we are discussing Items H.5 and 6. Item H.6 refers to the Palestine Technical Commission, and it has a most direct reference to this White Paper because it is the paper, as I conceive it, which...
