Orders of the Day — Agricultural Marketing Act, 1931. (27 Mar 1934)

Mr John Burnett: I have been asked to make a formal protest on behalf of the Aberdeen Town Council. Nothing effectual can be done at this stage. While the Secretary of State for Scotland is the promoter of the scheme there is always the invisible partner who must be referred to but with whom we cannot get into touch. For better or worse Parliament has given up its power to intervene on behalf of either the...

Orders of the Day — Methylated Spirits Bill. (23 Mar 1934)

Mr John Burnett: I support the Bill because I believe that methylated spirit drinking is a growing evil. Anyone who listened to the case which the hon. Member for Dundee (Miss Horsbrugh) so carefully prepared and so eloquently stated, must agree that the figures which she gave justify repressive measures such as the Bill contains, and, I think, even more repressive measures. I took the opportunity of getting...

Orders of the Day — Methylated Spirits Bill. (23 Mar 1934)

Mr John Burnett: Yes. "Red Biddy", either mixed or unmixed with methylated spirit. The convictions were 38 for methylated spirit alone. Those figures justify action being taken. I have spoken to the police about the matter, and I have seen a certain amount of it myself. I know that a great deal of drinking goes on among the men. Those men take out bottles with them and drink in the backyards. They go to the...

Orders of the Day — Illegal Trawling (Scotland) Bill. (20 Mar 1934)

Mr John Burnett: I beg to move, to leave out "now" and at the end of the Question to add, "upon this day six months." I should like to dissociate myself completely from any idea of sympathy with or defence of deliberate poachers. I do not want to say a word which could be construed as support of law breakers. We may all disapprove of sheep stealers, but we may not be prepared to go back to the time when we...

Orders of the Day — Illegal Trawling (Scotland) Bill. (20 Mar 1934)

Mr John Burnett: An expert could tell. I have it on the authority of the fish trade that it is easy to tell by their appearance the fish which are illegally trawled. It is not Aberdeen, as was stated, which is the centre of the illegal trawling on the east coast. The centre of the illegal trawling lies in those villages in the constituency of my hon. Friend who was speaking the other day. It lies in the small...

Orders of the Day — Illegal Trawling (Scotland) Bill. (20 Mar 1934)

Mr John Burnett: Yes. The sheriff said that the witnesses must be present and he adjourned the case for six weeks, and then imposed a modified penalty of £45 and ordered the restoration of the fishing gear. If the sheriff had taken land miles into consideration he admitted that the ship would have been outside the limit, but in taking nautical miles it was just inside. The man, obviously, had no intention of...
