Major Abraham Lyons: I have gone into the matter with some little care. The institutions mentioned in the Schedule as it stands will, I think, all be included in the scope of my Amendment. There would not be one of them excluded, as I understand it. In reply to the question put by the hon. Member for Darlington (Mr. Peat) there are four others that are at the present time under the purview of my Amendments, but...
Major Abraham Lyons: I find a little difficulty, without notice, in dealing with that question, but the risk that the hon. Member suggests is one that might be easily guarded against. It would be easy to prevent any organisation of mushroom growth coming in. The point might be dealt with in this way, by allowing the Schedule to extend to all those already in existence and giving the particular safeguard that my...
Major Abraham Lyons: I should like to know by whom my hon. Friend has been informed that my Amendment is an excluding Amendment?
Major Abraham Lyons: rose—
Major Abraham Lyons: On a point of Order. May I be allowed to say that I entirely dissent from what has been suggested?
Major Abraham Lyons: indicated dissent.
Major Abraham Lyons: I beg to move, in page 3, line 16, to leave out from the word "of" to the end of line 24, and to insert instead thereof the words: a body of accountants established by charter or under the provisions of an Act of Parliament.
Major Abraham Lyons: May I take it that the Government of Canada refuse, or they have the choice of refusing, admission to persons, British subjects, who pay their own passages?
Major Abraham Lyons: 25. asked the President of the Board of Trade what reply he has given to the representations of certain dairy and agricultural engineers with reference to the effect upon that industry of the Danish trading agreement; whether he is aware that on 24th March, 1933, the representatives of the industry were seen by the Import Duty Advisory Committee, to whom an application had been made for a...
Major Abraham Lyons: Can my right hon. Friend tell me whether it is impossible to reply to the representations that this industry has made to his Department and, further, whether he is aware of the fact that they will be put in great difficulty by the relaxation of a duty about which they were not consulted?
Major Abraham Lyons: Is my right hon. Friend aware that the firm in question have sent the whole of their case to his Department and are awaiting a reply?
Major Abraham Lyons: 30. asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will specify the goods that have been admitted into this country from Russia by licence under Part 2 of the Russian Goods (Import Prohibition) Act, 1933?
Major Abraham Lyons: 35. asked the President of the Board of Trade what industries are likely to be affected by any of the trade agreements now in contemplation; and whether they or any of them will be consulted before any arrangement is arrived at?
Major Abraham Lyons: Does the right hon. Gentleman fully appreciate the grave lack of confidence and uncertainty that must be created in many trades, seeing that similar industries have been affected without consultation?
Major Abraham Lyons: Will the right hon. Gentleman consider the information which I bring to his notice in reference to dairy and agricultural engineers whose trade was affected by an agreement while their case was under consideration by the Tariff Advisory Committee?
Major Abraham Lyons: I rise to support what my hon. and learned Friend has just said, and to ask the Minister or the learned Solicitor-General, when he deals with the matter, to give a reasonable explanation why the brewer who has these houses should be put in a more specially favoured position than any other business under the whole of the Bill. I cannot see why, applying this matter as fairly as the Bill tries...
Major Abraham Lyons: I beg to move, in page 2, line 42, at the end, to insert the words: (6)"Where upon the expiration of such a notice as aforesaid a tenant ceases to be entitled by virtue of this Act to retain possession of a dwelling-house the provisions of the Landlord and Tenant Act, 1927, shall apply in respect of the premises as if they had been held under a tenancy terminated by that notice. The Landlord...
Major Abraham Lyons: As one who has had the pleasure of being associated with the hon. Member for Thirsk (Mr. Turton) in introducing the Bill, I want to say how much the consideration and sympathy of the Government have been appreciated. While endorsing the observations that have been made by my hon. and learned Friend the Member for Norwood (Sir W. Greaves-Lord), it is clear that this Bill goes almost the whole...
Major Abraham Lyons: Can the hon. and gallant Gentleman tell the House the nature of the goods in respect of which licences have been granted?
Major Abraham Lyons: 13. asked the President of the Board of Trade whether, in the terms of any new trading agreement, he will reserve to this country the right to alter any concession in the event of a foreign contracting country depreciating its currency during the operation of the agreement?
