Orders of the Day — Supply.: Board of Education. (14 Jun 1937)

Mr Morgan Jones: Many of the speakers in the course of the evening have offered to the hon. Gentleman the Parliamentary Secretary congratulations upon the most excellent speech which he made at the opening of our proceedings, and I would like to be associated, if I may, with those congratulations. As an old Parliamentary Secretary myself, I can appreciate some of the feelings that he must have entertained...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Board of Education. (14 Jun 1937)

Mr Morgan Jones: The right hon. Gentleman is entitled to his view; I am expressing mine. There is a legitimate desire to look after the practical side of education. We have more than once pleaded from this side of the Committee that children with a practical mind, so to speak, shall be catered for just as much as the child with the academic mind. I am all for that, and in particular we must have regard to it...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Board of Education. (14 Jun 1937)

Mr Morgan Jones: I beg the hon. Member's pardon, but I will develop the point, nevertheless. I have seen pupils of my own, who, on their normal work would justify going to the secondary school, but who were too delicate or temperamental to stand the strain of examinations. They failed when less meritorious children passed. A system like that cannot be defended. If we had a system of free secondary education,...

Orders of the Day — Civil List Bill. ( 1 Jun 1937)

Mr Morgan Jones: I beg to move to leave out the word "now," and, at the end of the Question, to add the words "upon this day three months." At each succeeding stage of the discussions upon this Bill those associated with me on this side of the House have availed themselves of the opportunity to state the point of view which this party entertain regarding the proposals of this Bill, and we are unwilling to...

Orders of the Day — Civil List Bill. ( 1 Jun 1937)

Mr Morgan Jones: The right hon. Baronet has completely missed the point that I made. My point was that the political representatives of the Labour party had transferred their allegiance to the other side and there was, therefore, no politician who could explain to the King what our point of view was.

Orders of the Day — Civil List Bill. ( 1 Jun 1937)

Mr Morgan Jones: That is a monstrous distortion. I did not imply that it was a handicap to the King not to have had more than 24 hours' conversation with us. What I meant was that it was an injustice that because of that limited intercourse with us he was not enabled to understand the point of view of the people whom we represent.

Orders of the Day — Ways and Means.: Amendment of Law. (22 Apr 1937)

Mr Morgan Jones: Most of the discussions in the latter part of our Debate this evening have centred round and been occasioned by the new tax which the Chancellor of the Exchequer has proposed in his Budget, but I may perhaps be permitted to revert to a more general discussion, because after all, it is the Budget as a whole that is the subject of our discussion here to-night, though, of course, it is...
