Orders of the Day — Merchandise Marks (Imported Goods) Bill. (12 May 1926)

Mr Richard Deans: It will doubtless be a relief to the House to escape from the agricultural atmosphere. I am neither competent nor desirous of dealing with that aspect of the Bill. It will be my duty to support the Second Reading of the Bill—though I hope to see it amended—and by arguments, I imagine, of a somewhat different character to those already used. I want to say one or two words about the first...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Relief of Unemployment. (13 May 1926)

Mr George Lansbury: the time of Queen Elizabeth and there it is, and as a result—I am quite certain the right hon. Gentleman. the Minister of Health will agree with me that—in one way or another it is the duty of the boards of guardians to relieve destitute persons. Indeed, the Minister of Labour has said at that Box, that the Unemployment Insurance scheme is an insurance scheme and not a relief...

Orders of the Day — Mining Industry Bill.: Motion for Second Reading. (23 Jun 1926)

Mr George Lane-Fox: ...and thinks it worth while. In this Bill, Clause I, Sub-section (1) gives power to prepare voluntary schemes of amalgamation. Those undertakings that wish to amalgamate are first of all freed from stamp duty, which will save very considerable expenditure, and also they are given a simpler, shorter, cheaper method than exists under the present law of getting their amalgamation put through....

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: New Clause. — (Duties on table waters.) (6 Jul 1926)

Sir Basil Peto: I beg to move, "That the Clause be read a Second time." Those duties were imposed during the War as a War measure, and bit by bit they have been remitted. In 1923 the duty on sweetened table waters was reduced to 2d., and in 1924 it was entirely repealed, but since then the duty of 8d. a gallon on unsweetened table waters has been retained. At the same time, the duty on cider, which contains...

Civil Services and Revenue Departments Estimates, 1926-27.: Ministry of Health. (13 Jul 1926)

...he is thought ill of or thought little of by the com- munity generally, but that he is a man who can be looked up to, is a man whose opinion is valued, and is a man who can be trusted to do his duty. Consumption is an extremely difficult disease to diagnose in its early stages, and so the Ministry have supplemented the panel doctor by a tuberculosis officer, who is expert in the diagnosis...

Orders of the Day — Revenue Departments Estimates, 1926–27. Post Office. (14 Jul 1926)

Viscount Wolmer: It is now my duty to endeavour, so far as I am able, to gather up the very interesting but somewhat disconnected criticisms and suggestions with which the Postmaster-General has been favoured during the last few hours, and in doing so I would like to thank the Committee for the kind reception they have given on this and on other occasions to the Post Office Estimates, and for the...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: Clause 15. — (Betting Duty.) (15 Jul 1926)

Mr George Buchanan: I rise to raise one or two points in connection to this Betting Duty. The hon. Member who spoke last stated as a very cogent argument that a man could very easily come to an arrangement with his bookmaker about £1 meaning £10 and so on; but that can only be when there is perfect trust between the bookmaker and the man who bets. It means in effect that if he won or lost, then at law all the...

Civil Services and Revenue Departments Estimates, 1926–27.: India Office. (20 Jul 1926)

Colonel Josiah Wedgwood: ...were better to lose India than to lose this War." In the same way I say it is better that sonic people should lose their heads and that some should lose their lives than that we should not do our duty to humanity by not developing self-governing institutions in India and elsewhere. But what is the real reason why these troubles are coming upon India to-day? I think it is the growth of...

Orders of the Day — Electricity (Supply) Bill.: Clause 5. — (Existing selected stations.) (10 Nov 1926)

Mr William Kelly: ...for our industry and our domestia life. The Clause states that where those at present owning stations are unwilling to accept the conditions under this scheme, the Board, instead of undertaking the duty itself, shall devote its time to looking around for another company or person to do the work, so that the community would again be placed at the mercy of a small section of people such as...

Oral Answers to Questions — Receipt Stamps. (11 Nov 1926)

Mr Ronald McNeill: The attention of the Commissioners of Inland Revenue is constantly being called to cases where receipts which ought to have been stamped have been given without a stamp, and suitable action is taken by them in each case. The document commonly given in the larger shops when goods are sold and paid for over the counter is a form of voucher which does not constitute a receipt for the purposes of...

Orders of the Day — Criminal Justice (Increase of Penalties) Bill.: Mandated Territories. (14 Dec 1926)

...artificially between ourselves and the Dominions and dependencies. In that extremely ridiculous Measure called the Merchandise Marks Act we have required the natives in these trust territories to stamp their goods "British Empire made," which simply would not be true. The Secretary of State for the Dominions and Colonies is himself always trying in spirit, though he never oversteps the...

Orders of the Day — King's Speech.: Debate on the Address. (9 Feb 1927)

Commander Charles Burney: ...Government were not without warning. Twice the Federation of British Industries went to them and pointed out the deleterious effects of such a violent change. No less an authority than Sir Josiah Stamp, subsequent to that crisis, reported that, in his view, that industrial crisis had been ensured by the action of the Government. They were not even without warnings in this House, and I have...

CROWN LANDS (No. 2) BILL. (30 Mar 1927)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: ...the Commissioner of Works to the Commissioners of Crown Lands and in exchange other houses may be transferred back subject to adjustment by the Treasury. Clause 15 would repeal the exemption from Stamp Duty which applies to transactions about Crown lands and which is of very doubtful value to the facilitating of such transactions. This exemption causes a considerable loss of revenue, and...

Orders of the Day — Telephone Service. (31 Mar 1927)

Mr Charles Ammon: ...on a certain amount of agricultural work. It is not an exaggeration to say that this system is hardly yet known in the country and among the smallholders, and it is the Postmaster-General's duty to do all he can to advertise that system, to insist on advertising it just as he did the telephone system by a cancelling stamp on letters, with the words, "Say it by Telephone." In the same way,...
