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

Mr Morgan Jones: The Chancellor told us on Tuesday that he is willing for the Public Accounts Committee to know nine months hence. That is not treating the House in the way it ought to be treated. There was something to be said for the Chancellor's viewpoint when the fund was first established, but now that it has been in existence for three years I cannot see any reason for withholding the information for...

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

Mr Morgan Jones: I hope I did not give the impression that there was secrecy for the sake of secrecy. I was questioning the wisdom of that secrecy.

Oral Answers to Questions — British Army.: Discharged Soldier (Gratuity). (20 Apr 1937)

Mr Morgan Jones: Seeing that there are so many of these cases, will the right hon. Gentleman provide some sort of court of appeal to which these cases might be referred rather than having the final decision laid down at the War Office?

Oral Answers to Questions — British Army.: Discharged Soldier (Gratuity). (20 Apr 1937)

Mr Morgan Jones: Is it not the case that it is the certificate of the doctors themselves that is very much questioned, and is it not possible to have an appeal to a board half civil and half medical?

Orders of the Day — Marriage Bill.: New Clause — (Restriction on the hearing of divorce cases on circuit). (16 Apr 1937)

Mr Morgan Jones: The learned Solicitor-General has taken the occasion of this Motion to indicate what the view of the Government will be with regard to this Bill, and, if I may venture to do so, I should like, also, to say one or two words about the action of my hon. Friends officially. The hon. and Learned Gentleman said that this Bill is a Private Member's Bill. Frequently on Private Members' Bills we have...

Oral Answers to Questions — Spain. ( 6 Apr 1937)

Mr Morgan Jones: asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he has any information to give the House as to the position of affairs in Spain?

Oral Answers to Questions — Spain. ( 6 Apr 1937)

Mr Morgan Jones: Will the right hon. Gentleman say what he means by the word "now." Does it mean since the incident to which my hon. Friend refers?

Oral Answers to Questions — India (Situation). ( 6 Apr 1937)

Mr Morgan Jones: asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether he has any statement to make regarding the position of affairs in India?

Oral Answers to Questions — India (Situation). ( 6 Apr 1937)

Mr Morgan Jones: Arising out of the first part of the reply, with reference to Provincial Ministries, may we have an assurance that the Viceroy will take some steps in order to arrive at an amicable agreement between himself and the Provincial Governors and the persons concerned so as to avoid any possible deadlock in future?

Oral Answers to Questions — India (Situation). ( 6 Apr 1937)

Mr Morgan Jones: Is it not the duty of the Governor-General to see that the King's Government is properly carried on, and, therefore, is it not his duty to take the initiative?

Orders of the Day — Defence Loans Bill. (25 Feb 1937)

Mr Morgan Jones: I think it is not inappropriate to remind the House, as we draw to the close of the Debate on the Second Reading of this Bill, that there has not been in the whole history of our country, I should imagine, a closer parallel than that between the situation at the present time and the situation which existed before 1914. Indeed, the parallel is frightfully ominous. And if there be a...

Orders of the Day — Defence Loans Bill. (25 Feb 1937)

Mr Morgan Jones: Obviously, just as does this £1,500,000,000. Do not let us be stupid and silly.

Orders of the Day — Defence Loans Bill. (25 Feb 1937)

Mr Morgan Jones: The fact remains that we have spent upon armaments, armed services, £1,765,000,000. Take out, if you will, what has been spent upon pay, but you must grant, none the less, that a substantial proportion of that money has been spent upon instruments of war, and am I to be told that all the money that you have spent upon these instruments has turned out to be utterly useless? Do not let us be...

Government of India Act, 1935, and Government of Burma Act, 1935. (16 Feb 1937)

Mr Morgan Jones: Will the same persons represent India and Burma at the Conference?

Government of India Act, 1935, and Government of Burma Act, 1935. (16 Feb 1937)

Mr Morgan Jones: May I first associate myself very completely with the well deserved tribute which the hon. Gentleman and the hon. and gallant Member for Bournemouth (Sir H. Croft) paid to our late colleague Sir Reginald Craddock? In common with others of my hon. Friends and some hon. Members opposite it was my good fortune to co-operate with him on the Joint Select Committee for many long months....

Government of India Act, 1935, and Government of Burma Act, 1935. (16 Feb 1937)

Mr Morgan Jones: That might be an interesting point of contention between the hon. and gallant Member and myself. For the moment I am addressing myself to his request that the Government should bring to bear upon Burma's representatives all the economic power at their disposal. Those are somewhat menacing terms to use. If we want to keep this Empire together the way to do it is not by bringing to bear upon a...

Trend of Population. (10 Feb 1937)

Mr Morgan Jones: I want to say at the very beginning that we hope very much that the Government will find it possible to accept the Motion, at any rate so far as the reference to an inquiry is concerned. We may have our differing points of view as to why this problem has arisen, but we can agree that there is a problem and that, therefore, it is an appropriate matter for the Government to inquire into. We...

Trend of Population. (10 Feb 1937)

Mr Morgan Jones: No, but when we do discover some supporters we are glad to welcome them. The second point which the hon. Member made was interference with the mother's working capacity, and again, to my great delight, nursery schools and creches for children. We had an argument about that last week, and I will not enter into it again, but in this respect also he is in agreement with something which the...

Trend of Population. (10 Feb 1937)

Mr Morgan Jones: They may do, and in that case the wife must remain at home. I am told that some of these wives go out to work, and thus, again, the tendency is to avoid having families. The hon. Member for Norwood (Mr. Sandys) referred to education. I have two children, one of whom goes to an elementary school, and for me in the suburbs of London it is a terrible proposition to find out where I can get a...

Trend of Population. (10 Feb 1937)

Mr Morgan Jones: Will it be a Departmental inquiry?
