Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: Clause 11. — (Repeal of Customs Duties on Motor Spirit and Motor Dealers Licence Duties.) (6 Jul 1920)

Viscount Curzon: ...of Transport will be able to reconsider this matter. He has shown so far no sign of being ready to consider the opinion of really nine out of ten motorists in this matter. The great argument alleged against a fuel tax is the difficulty of rebates, which render collection so expensive. New proposals which have been submitted, I believe, to the right hon. Gentleman proposed to do away with...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce.: Farriers and Iron Merchants' Combine. (5 Jul 1920)

Sir H. HORNE: I was not aware of the matters alleged in the question, except in so far as they appear in the report referred to by my hon. Friend. I am advised that in the present state of the law it is not possible for the Board of Trade to take any action, but the question will not be lost sight of when legislation of a permanent nature dealing with monopolies and combinations is under...

Commander Hon. Joseph Kenworthy: In spite of the allegations made against the Mover by the hon. Baronet who has just spoken, I feel bound to support the Amendment. It is true that both poor and rich and direct and indirect taxpayer contribute to this duty, but it is a tax which is particularly hard on the very poorest of the population. It is 1s. on the pound of tea, and that means that half of the cost of the tea which the...

Private Business.: LONDON ELECTRIC RAILWAY COMPANIES (FARES, ETC.) BILL [By Order]. (5 Jul 1920)

Sir James Grant: ...has in this matter been somewhat unfairly dealt with. My right hon. Friend has recently been an object of criticism, and the House well knows that when a man is under criticism, a mere mole-hill of alleged indiscretion may very often be turned into a mountain of iniquity. I repeat that the action of the right hon. Gentleman has been made too much of, and I think it would be a grave...

Orders of the Day — Supply [15TH Allotted Day].: Ministry of Transport. (1 Jul 1920)

Mr Herbert Asquith: ...to it very carefully and very respectfully, and it appeared to me to be nothing more, if I may say so without offence, than an amplification, and in some respects a dilution, of the arguments and allegations which were presented by the Minister of Transport last week. I took occasion then to make some observations on the character of this Estimate and to point out that, in my judgment, and...

Orders of the Day — Supply [15TH Allotted Day].: Supply. (1 Jul 1920)

Mr George Renwick: ...slack experience of the year, when everybody knows that there is very little traffic being carried by water, but when the autumn comes again, there will be a congestion on the railways. It has been alleged that the coasting owners asked for a subsidy and got it. They never asked for a subsidy. They did not want it. They are quite willing to carry on their business. We did not ask for a...

Oral Answers to Questions — India.: Punjab Disturbances. (30 Jun 1920)

Mr Edwin Montagu: The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. Many allegations were made by non-official Members to which the reply of Government representatives was generally that these were matters on which judgment should be suspended till the Committee had reported. The debates were received in the India Office in two parts on the 5th and 12th November.

Oral Answers to Questions — India.: Disturbances, Calcutta. (30 Jun 1920)

It is alleged by the late Commissioner in question, Mr. Marshall Freeman, that the Department ought to have come to an end last Christmas, as the work had practically ceased.

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Mines Bill. (30 Jun 1920)

Sir Robert Horne: ...very expensive drainage schemes, and various people are doing pumping at various mines where one common system of pumping would do all that is necessary at less expense. In some cases it has been alleged, and in other cases it has been proved that owing to the action of a contiguous owner, large bodies of coal have been lost through drowning out owing to the refusal to allow the necessary...

Sir James Flannery: ...description to the present occupant of the office of Minister of Transport the right hon. Gentleman the Member for Paisley made a very serious mistake, if I may venture to say so, especially in his allegations against the Ministry and in his proposal for an alternative arrangement. He suggested—and I confess I was surprised that he did so—that the accountants of the railway companies...
