Major Abraham Lyons: Has my hon. Friend reason to believe that typewriters which come here from Canada are in any way made in Canada?
Major Abraham Lyons: 45 and 46. asked the President of the Board of Trade (1) the value of the foreign-manufactured goods that entered this country via Canada for the period January to October, 1931; (2) the value of the manufactured goods of foreign origin entering this country from Canada, duty free, for the period January to October, inclusive, 1932, and the country or countries of origin?
Major Abraham Lyons: May I ask whether the goods that come via Canada irrespective of the country of origin enjoy a preferential rate? Does not the Department think that some check ought to be imposed in regard to these goods?
Major Abraham Lyons: Has the hon. Member in mind the fact that the President of the Board of Trade told me a fortnight ago that at a very early date he hoped that an additional statement would be made?
Major Abraham Lyons: 16. asked the Home Secretary if he can give a report on the work of the Consultative Committee on Cinematograph Productions for 1932 up to the most convenient date, with the number of meetings held; whether these have been public or private; and whether any statement can be published showing the nature of the work accomplished and the results of the control or representations of this body?
Major Abraham Lyons: Can the right hon. Gentleman assure the House that this committee considers from time to time the posters issued in connection with cinematograph edvertisements?
Major Abraham Lyons: Will that report be made public?
Major Abraham Lyons: 17. asked the Home Secretary if he will state the progress of the work delegated to the committee considering the question of appeals from courts of summary jurisdiction; whether any report has yet been received; and when any recommendations will be published?
Major Abraham Lyons: Have the committee conducted their deliberations in public or in private?
Major Abraham Lyons: Can the right hon. Gentleman say whether the committee have asked for oral evidence from those willing to volunteer it?
Major Abraham Lyons: 30. asked the Home Secretary if he will indicate the sources from which evidence has been invited or received by the committee considering the matter of appeals from courts of summary jurisdiction?
Major Abraham Lyons: May I ask how those parties who have valuable information to give can give it to the proper quarter? Would it not be advisable to issue a statement that the committee are open to receive information on this very important subject?
Major Abraham Lyons: Have the committee considered any recommendations at all up to date?
Major Abraham Lyons: 32. asked the Home Secretary whether the report of the consultative committee upon cinematograph exhibitions, when received, will be made public?
Major Abraham Lyons: Can the right hon. Gentleman say when he expects to receive the recommendations?
Major Abraham Lyons: Before proceeding further with this matter, will my right hon. Friend consider the representations of those responsible for the very excellent work of the Leicester boys' and girls' school?
Major Abraham Lyons: I am much obliged.
Major Abraham Lyons: Did not representations come in the first instance from those people who have done such excellent work in the erection and maintenance of homes for boys and girls from the city of Leicester?
Major Abraham Lyons: Hon. Members who are associated with me in the Amendment which is on the Order Paper—in line 3, at the end, to add the words, particularly having regard to the present unsatisfactory position of the law in relation to appeals from courts of summary jurisdiction. are grateful to the Solicitor-General for the contribution he has just made to the Debate. We thought that the Motion in its...
Major Abraham Lyons: It occurred to me, after consultation, that in view of what the Solicitor-General had said, and to which we listened with gratitude, the Government were giving full consideration to this matter and, therefore, I did not move the Amendment. Of course, if you desire that the matter should be properly on record, and that I ought to have moved the Amendment, I will do so.
