Orders of the Day — Treaties of Peace (Austria and Bulgaria) Bill. (14 Apr 1920)

Mr Herbert Asquith: ...observation—on the question of the delimitation of frontiers. There is a good deal to be said by way of criticism—as my hon. Friend has acknowledged in the case of Czecho-Slovakia—of the merger of, in some cases, homogeneous German and other populations in which is to be, for all intents and purposes, a Slavonic State. But I know too well the difficulties that arise when a population...

Orders of the Day — Irish Free State (Agreement) Bill. (17 Feb 1922)

Mr George Barnes: ...Member for Oxford University (Lord H. Cecil) seems to think might go on a bit longer.

Coal Trade Dispute. (25 Oct 1926)

Mr Frederick Montague: ...of the new capitalism. We find in the Press reports and statements in regard to iron and steel combines in Europe for running the European markets, including this country.

Mond) has recently made a statement with...

Mr Hastings Lees-Smith: ...and of regularising trade and employment. That is the argument, I recollect, the right hon. Member for Carmarthen (Sir A. Mond) used when addressing the shareholders as the head of the new chemical merger. The difference between us is this. These great business organisers have accepted part of the arguments used from these benches, but they wish to deal with the problem by trusts, combines...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: New Clause. — (Relief from capital and transfer stamp duty in case of reconstructions or amalgamations of companies.) (18 Jul 1927)

Mr Philip Snowden: ...that is the best that can be said for them. Undoubtedly, they are more or less a serious burden upon industry. It will be within the recollection of the House that a few months ago a very extensive merger took place in the chemical industry and, if I remember rightly, £1,000,000 or more was paid in Stamp Duty, although in that case there was no additional capital. That charge becomes a...

We do not move from our policy, that it is necessary...

Mr Thomas Williams: ...with the question of marking eggs. This question was raised on the Second Heading of the Bill.
