Did you mean many?
Mr Herbert Spender-Clay: ...several hundred Members of the House, I will not say heated, but in some degree excited, about the question under consideration. It is unthinkable that Mr. Speaker, no matter how great the provocation may be, should lose his temper. He has to have tact, he has to be impartial and he has to have the qualities of a peace-maker. He has to be human and to have a sense of humour. The...
Lieut-General Edward Fitzroy: ...petition to His Majesty, to all your ancient and undoubted rights and privileges, particularly freedom of speech in Debate, freedom from arrest, freedom of access to His Majesty whenever occasion may require, and that the most favourable construction may be placed upon all your proceedings. All these His Majesty, by His Commissioners, has been pleased to allow and confirm in as ample a...
And I pray that the blessing of Almighty God may rest upon your deliberations.
Flight Lieut Wavell Wakefield: ...administrators have become as much the front line as any newly dug trench. Just over 300 years ago, and about this time of year, efforts were made to expedite the business of this House from below. To-day we may still search the cellars, with various fears or hopes, but the real threat is from the clouds. No sovereign assembly but can be bombed, unless the peace is kept. Ever since 1914...
Mr Stanley Baldwin: ..., be introduced and that no ballot be taken for determining the precedence of such Bills. Yesterday I gave a brief explanation of the circumstances in which this Motion is submitted to the House. I may point out to the House that in practice only one Friday will be affected by the Motion. There are three Fridays between now and Christmas. The first of these Fridays, the Friday of this...
Mr Stanley Baldwin: ...Victoria, and to condole with His Majesty on this melancholy occasion; and to assure His Majesty that this House will ever participate with the most affectionate and dutiful attachment in whatever may concern the feelings and interest of His Majesty. It is only a short four years ago since the House passed a similar Resolution to this on the occasion of the death of the Princess Royal....
Mr Arthur Greenwood: ...and we are still in the dark as to what exactly His Majesty's Government mean to do; we are as wise now as we were when you, Mr. Speaker, read the Gracious Speech on Tuesday. The Speech is not only vague. Vagueness may be forgiven people who have not made up their minds. But it presents no suggestion of any coherent policy. At least I think the House is entitled to a coherent and...
Lieut-Colonel Anthony Muirhead: It is of the usual type of exchange which is being built; there may be a particularly large amount of unemployment at the moment in this district, but that is quite different from being a regular matter.
Major Abraham Lyons: ...now; can he say when it is expected that they will conclude; and when will he be able to give some publicity to that part of the conversations which is not confidential, in the hope that we may help him to smooth out any of the difficulties which may be superficial?
Lieut-Colonel Anthony Muirhead: The evidence which the Department has on this subject arises principally from the working of the Employment Exchanges and the difficulties which the exchanges may experience in filling particular vacancies. As the hon. Member will appreciate the circumstances vary from ease to case, but the principal difficulties arise with regard to vacancies for bricklayers and plasterers in many areas and...
Lieut-Colonel Anthony Muirhead: ...of employers at the meetings held by my right hon. Friend and his predecessor. These discussions are still continuing, and my right hon. Friend is not yet in a position to say what proposals may be made.
Mr John Simon: I have no jurisdiction to determine what is or what is not an offence under the Corrupt Practices Act, but I may say that I should consider the interpretation of the Act contained in this question to be very questionable, for it would seem that what that Act refers to is the hiring or letting of carriages for the purpose of conveying electors to or from the poll. In any case these questions...
Mr Rhys Davies: asked the Home Secretary whether any progress has been made towards establishing a fund out of which compensation may be paid to those textile operatives who are incapacitated from following their employment consequent upon inhaling dust in card rooms?
Sir Percy Hurd: May it not become a very serious matter for the local authorities as regards rates if the erection of these unoccupied super-flats continues?
Sir Kingsley Wood: When I glance at them I think there may be some other reason.
Sir Kingsley Wood: No, Sir. I do not think the matter is appropriate to the National Health Insurance scheme but it may be, under the other conditions mentioned ill the latter part of my answer.
Mr William Mabane: ...of the Exchequer whether he is aware of the manner in which industrial development is being assisted by the policy of cheap money; and whether, in order to secure that the benefits of the policy may continue, he will declare his intention not to relax the measures of control at present being applied to foreign lending?
...duties. I am advised that it is difficult to say in many cases at what date tentative inquiries become a definite and documented application by the industry concerned. Moreover, an application may be held in abeyance by the applicants, or by the Import Duties Advisory Committee, on the ground that the time is not ripe to take a definite decision either to reject it or to make a...
Mr Ernest Thurtle: May I convey it to him now?
Mr William Morrison: ...of residence in this country is liable to tax as a resident in any year in which he visits this country. The liability normally extends only to the income actually remitted to this country, and I may remind my hon. Friend that, in the years in which there is no visit, there is no liability in respect of remittances from the earnings abroad.
