Orders of the Day — Finance Bill. ( 1 Jul 1937)

Mr Morgan Jones: I happen to have one of the trading estates in my constituency, and that trading estate naturally consists of a certain number of enterprises which would be able to avail themselves of the benefits provided by the Special Areas Act. I want to ask the right hon. Gentleman what is the effect of the Government's proposal, because it says that the commissioner shall consider whether, for the...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: New Clause. — (Repeal of 22 and 23 Geo. 5, c. 30.) ( 1 Jul 1937)

Mr Morgan Jones: I beg to move, "That the Clause be read a Second time." It will be known to many Members of the Committee that this is a subject of almost perpetual interest, and, if we do not dwell at any length on the matter, I hope the Government will not regard it on that account as being unimportant in our minds. We still regard this matter as one of fundamental importance. The duties in question were,...

Government of India Act, 1935. (28 Jun 1937)

Mr Morgan Jones: The Noble Lord very modestly said that the third Order made some corrections in some slight particulars. I hope he has waded through the Schedule. It seems to me rather hard upon the House to invite it to approve of an Order containing a schedule involving so many cross-references. I do not pretend to understand it. It is much too hard work for any individual Member to wade through all the...

Government of India Act, 1935. (28 Jun 1937)

Mr Morgan Jones: I took an intimate personal interest in this matter in the earlier stages, and I speak from memory and therefore subject to correction, but my recollection is entirely in conformity with what the Patronage Secretary has said. The Under-Secretary gave me to understand that we were following precedent in taking the line that we then took in respect of this kind of Order, and in practice we have...

Mr Morgan Jones: I understand that the Bill has been examined by my hon. Friends on this side of the House and so far they find no objection to the Second Reading. If there is any regret, it is that it deprives us for ever of being able to say that the Government have done nothing at all.

Orders of the Day — Nigeria [Remission of Payments]. (28 Jun 1937)

Mr Morgan Jones: I cannot charge my memory with the actual circumstances in which the Public Accounts Committee came to their recommendation in this matter, but the Government have framed the Resolution on the recommendation we made in our annual report. I hope the House will feel that the Public Accounts Committee in the discharge of its difficult task has to call attention sometimes to irregularities or to...

Orders of the Day — Business of the House. (28 Jun 1937)

Mr Morgan Jones: Some of my hon. Friends are very much interested in the next Order on the Paper—the Inheritance (Family Provision) Bill—which is down for consideration on Report. It is a Bill promoted by my hon. Friend the Member for Central Hull (Mr. Windsor) and I think the Government ought not to have moved the Adjournment, at this stage, when an hour and a-quarter remain to us, without giving an...

Orders of the Day — Business of the House. (28 Jun 1937)

Mr Morgan Jones: On what authority does the hon. and gallant Gentleman say that it was understood that the Bill was not to be taken to-night? All I understood was that Government business was not to proceed beyond a certain point, but there was no understanding about what other business was to be taken if Government bosh ness lapsed earlier than was expected.
