Mr Morgan Jones: Is the right hon. Gentleman not aware that there is a very serious economic depression in Palestine at the present time, attributable to the absence of a decision on this matter?

Mr Morgan Jones: Is it not a fact that this question has tended to make people unwilling to advance money to investors in that area until they know what the policy of the Government is to be?

Import Duties (Import Duties Act, 1932).: Celluloid Dolls and Rattles. (14 Feb 1938)

Mr Morgan Jones: If the right hon. and gallant Gentleman will look at the White Paper, he will see that it says deliberately that the purpose of the order is to maintain and secure the industry in this country. It is stated that as previous tariffs have not been sufficient, a further tariff is to be imposed to make the industry safe.

Import Duties (Import Duties Act, 1932).: Celluloid Dolls and Rattles. (14 Feb 1938)

Mr Morgan Jones: Is it not a fact that, should the Home Office come to the conclusion that this trade ought to be restricted, its task will be all the more difficult if, in the meantime, the industry has been strengthened and allowed to entrench itself behind a tariff?

Import Duties (Import Duties Act, 1932).: Celluloid Dolls and Rattles. (14 Feb 1938)

Mr Morgan Jones: Do we understand that the right hon. and gallant Member will give instructions to the committee or will let it be known to the committee that, in future, when they are considering these Orders, inquiry should be made into the wages and conditions of employment in the industries concerned?

Orders of the Day — Nationalisation of Mines and Minerals Bill. ( 4 Feb 1938)

Mr Morgan Jones: I have listened with considerable interest to most of the speeches that have been made in the House to-day on the Bill introduced by my hon. Friend the Member for Wigan (Mr. Parkinson). I confess that the one which aroused my deepest sympathy was that of the hon. Member below the Gangway who has just addressed the. House, for it is quite clear that he would like to wound, but was afraid to...

Orders of the Day — Nationalisation of Mines and Minerals Bill. ( 4 Feb 1938)

Mr Morgan Jones: I will come to that directly. I will take that in my stride, if the hon. Member does not mind. I have the impression that the defenders of the present system in this House at this moment have been reduced to defending it almost with an apology upon their lips. There is a deep and grave apprehension in the public mind as to whether the State ought not to wrest this industry from the...

Orders of the Day — Nationalisation of Mines and Minerals Bill. ( 4 Feb 1938)

Mr Morgan Jones: Frankly if I had to say "Yes," I am not at all alarmed. Why should I be alarmed? I would rather use public funds to subsidise a national industry than use public funds to subsidise a private industry.

Orders of the Day — Nationalisation of Mines and Minerals Bill. ( 4 Feb 1938)

Mr Morgan Jones: No, but I have in mind clearly the effect of derating with its burden on the taxes. Incidentally, the hon. and gallant Member has developed a somewhat late interest in this Debate. The Secretary for Mines also referred to the question of mechanisation and attempted to argue that my hon. Friends were against mechanisation per se. Obviously, we cannot put the clock of progress back; we must...

Orders of the Day — Nationalisation of Mines and Minerals Bill. ( 4 Feb 1938)

Mr Morgan Jones: My point was that my hon. Friend had sought to show that mechanisation had added to the degree of risk underground and that the risk could have been mitigated in some degree if there were regulations for machine mining underground. The hon. Member for Stockport (Sir A. Gridley) advanced five arguments against the Bill. His first argument was to ask, what is going to happen to industries which...

Orders of the Day — Nationalisation of Mines and Minerals Bill. ( 4 Feb 1938)

Mr Morgan Jones: In the machinery of this Bill, there is provision for astonishingly little bureaucracy. I rather suspect that hon. Members opposite prepared their opposition to some previous Bill and were rather disappointed to find that we had got over the difficulty of bureaucracy. We have done our best to circumvent it in this Bill, and I believe we have succeeded. I will come now to some of the main...

Bombing of Civilians. ( 2 Feb 1938)

Mr Morgan Jones: I beg to move, That, in the opinion of this House, the growing horror of aerial bombardment of defenceless civilians should be expressed in an international agreement to co-operate in its prohibition, and urges His Majesty's Government to exert its influence to this end. The House will observe that the Motion is drafted in quite general terms. It is also worth noting that it is mainly in the...

Bombing of Civilians. ( 2 Feb 1938)

Mr Morgan Jones: I presume that he writes of what he saw. I am not at the moment trying to make a case for one side or the other; my object is to show what aerial bombardment involves. I will now read from page 240, where there are described the results and consequences: Mercifully, the fighters had gone. They no longer glanced down to mutilate the population in movement and chase them across the open fields....

Bombing of Civilians. ( 2 Feb 1938)

Mr Morgan Jones: That there has been bombing in various parts of the world.

Bombing of Civilians. ( 2 Feb 1938)
