Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce.: Import Duties. (17 Apr 1934)

Mr John Burnett: Will the hon. Gentleman bear in mind, when the time comes to reconsider this matter, that it is not only the reduced duty but also the Scandinavian exchange with which the British manufacturers of kraft paper have to contend?

Oral Answers to Questions — Germany.: British Creditors. (16 Apr 1934)

Mr John Burnett: 13. asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he has seen the statement on the German debt, issued at Basle on 11th April by the British representative, to the effect that the difficulties were those of transfer and not German incapacity to pay; and will he arrange that the annual amounts due by the German public authorities to their British long-term creditors shall be...

Oral Answers to Questions — Post Office.: Foreign Mails (Far East). (16 Apr 1934)

Mr John Burnett: 16. asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he is aware that British mails to China via Siberia are now transmitted via Vladivostok; and whether, having regard to the delay involved in transmission by this route, he will cause representations to be made to the Government of China that such mails be in future transmitted via Manchuli and Dairen?

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport.: Germany (British Investors). (11 Apr 1934)

Mr John Burnett: 32. asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, in order that the German authorities may be under no misapprehension prior to their forthcoming declaration, he will make it clear beyond doubt that the British Government will meet a policy of unilateral German default by applying the Anglo-German trade credit balance towards the full service of British-held German public debt?

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport.: Germany (British Investors). (11 Apr 1934)

Mr John Burnett: Will not the hon. Gentleman be enforcing in a practical way the good faith of international obligations?

Orders of the Day — Illegal Trawling (Scotland) Bill.: Clause 1. — (Penalties for illegal trawling.) (11 Apr 1934)

Mr John Burnett: I beg to move, in page 1, line 8, to leave out "one hundred," and to insert "fifty." This is one of a group of Amendments which are not intended to reduce the existing penalties in any way. The same maximum of £100 is retained, but it is intended to differentiate between the first offender and the persistent poacher. A good deal has been said about the recommendation which was made by the...

Orders of the Day — Illegal Trawling (Scotland) Bill.: Clause 1. — (Penalties for illegal trawling.) (11 Apr 1934)

Mr John Burnett: May I suggest that since 1925 the fishery cruisers are 11 years older, and a number have been laid up? That would account for the small increase in the last three years.

Orders of the Day — Illegal Trawling (Scotland) Bill.: Clause 1. — (Penalties for illegal trawling.) (11 Apr 1934)

Mr John Burnett: I did not say that they would get the sack, but that they feared, if they came back continually with poor catches, that they might get the sack. But that has nothing to do with the owners.

Orders of the Day — Illegal Trawling (Scotland) Bill.: Clause 1. — (Penalties for illegal trawling.) (11 Apr 1934)

Mr John Burnett: The hon. Member for Dumbarton Burghs (Mr. Kirkwood) mentioned that the trawlers were destroying the finest race of men, and speaker after speaker has spoken about the depredations of the trawlers being responsible for driving the inshore fishermen out of existence. While I admit that there are fewer inshore fishermen now than there were formerly, I do not admit that it is the depredations of...

Orders of the Day — Illegal Trawling (Scotland) Bill.: Clause 1. — (Penalties for illegal trawling.) (11 Apr 1934)

Mr John Burnett: I should like, in connection with the Amendment, to say that I think the cancellation of a master's certificate is practically achieved in the Bill already. There is no doubt that an owner will not employ a skipper who has already been convicted, because the penalties are too heavy, and it means that a skipper will be idle for a period of three years or five years. The object of the Amendment...

Orders of the Day — Illegal Trawling (Scotland) Bill.: Clause 1. — (Penalties for illegal trawling.) (11 Apr 1934)

Mr John Burnett: I beg to move, in page 1, line 15, at the end, to insert: Provided always that a person shall not be deemed guilty of illegal trawling nor shall any vessel be deemed to be used for the purpose of illegal trawling under this Act, if, in the opinion of the appropriate court of summary jurisdiction, any such vessel shall be found trawling inadvertently and without deliberation in any restricted...

Orders of the Day — Illegal Trawling (Scotland) Bill.: Clause 1. — (Penalties for illegal trawling.) (11 Apr 1934)

Mr John Burnett: During the winter months fish are usually within five miles of the shore, and naturally a trawler which is six miles from the shore is very likely to catch nothing. That is my information.

Orders of the Day — Illegal Trawling (Scotland) Bill.: Clause 1. — (Penalties for illegal trawling.) (11 Apr 1934)

Mr John Burnett: I beg to move, in page 2, line 12, to leave out Subsection (3). This Amendment relates to the penalties which are imposed upon owners. The Sub-section creates an offence. If the skipper is guilty of illegal trawling and thereby commits a criminal offence, the owner is to be vicariously responsible. Under Scottish law, if the servant of a master commits damage the master is liable for that...

Orders of the Day — Illegal Trawling (Scotland) Bill.: Clause 1. — (Penalties for illegal trawling.) (11 Apr 1934)

Mr John Burnett: I beg to move, in page 2, line 15, to leave out "three," and to insert "two." This raises the question of the length of time for which a skipper would be black-listed. If the period is three years the skipper will lose practically all his skill by the end of the time. I hope that the Government will consider a mitigation of this penalty. It may be a first offence, where the skipper had no...

Orders of the Day — Illegal Trawling (Scotland) Bill.: Clause 4. — (Trawling gear to be in board while in prohibited area.) (11 Apr 1934)

Mr John Burnett: I beg to move, in page 3, line 42, to leave out from "board," to the end of the Sub-section. We have had representations from trawlers on this subject. If trawlers are coming into port during a storm the trawlers stay out until the last possible moment and then rush into port, but if they have to wait and have, to detach the shackle-pins, sometimes to cut them out, the process takes a...

Orders of the Day — Illegal Trawling (Scotland) Bill.: Clause 4. — (Trawling gear to be in board while in prohibited area.) (11 Apr 1934)

Mr John Burnett: I wish to thank the right hon. Gentleman for the concession which he has made on this point.

Orders of the Day — Illegal Trawling (Scotland) Bill.: New Clause. — (Compensation for damage caused by illegal trawling.) (11 Apr 1934)

Mr John Burnett: I would like to thank the Secretary of State for the concessions which he has made. But that does not alter my opinion of the Bill. I consider that the Bill has been founded on vague statements, on generalities, on charges which cannot be made good. It is founded, not on the convictions which have taken place but on convictions which it is said might have taken place but never did. For that...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland.: Milk Prices. (27 Mar 1934)

Mr John Burnett: How long will it be before this matter is decided?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign Countries (British Investors). (27 Mar 1934)

Mr John Burnett: 44. asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he is aware that revision of the tramway and ferry rates of the Leopoldina Terminal and Cantareira Companies has been under discussion for two years; and whether he will ask the Consultative Council of the State of Rio de Janeiro, which has already received the report of the commission of inquiry, why it has not yet been possible to...
