Canlyniadau 1–20 o 369 ar gyfer speaker:Mr John Beckett

Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No. 2) BILL.: Clause 1. — (Increased duties and draw- backs on certain descriptions of beer.) (30 Med 1931)

Mr John Beckett: I want also to support the Amendment, because I think this tax is one that should have been scrupulously avoided at a time like this. We are told that the whole basis upon which this very heavy extra taxation has been put on the nation is a sudden crisis which demands the Government doing a very unpopular thing. No speaker on the benches opposite has pretended to like imposing all this extra...

Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No. 2) BILL.: Clause 1. — (Increased duties and draw- backs on certain descriptions of beer.) (30 Med 1931)

Mr John Beckett: It would not he fair to take that one particular suggestion. There are many others.

Orders of the Day — National Economy Bill.: Schedule. — (Services in respect of which Orders in Council may be made under this Act.) (25 Med 1931)

Mr John Beckett: I am sure the hon. and gallant Member for Gainsborough (Capt. Crookshank) will forgive me if I do not follow his speech at great length, but I would like to say that he has furnished what, to my mind, has been the first quite good reason for the change of sides in this House. It has relieved him from that midnight responsibility which used to haunt him in the first two years of this...

Orders of the Day — National Economy Bill.: Schedule. — (Services in respect of which Orders in Council may be made under this Act.) (25 Med 1931)

Mr John Beckett: I do not see that that affects the point of my argument in any way. My point is that it is hardly a week since we were told that if we did tot maintain the Gold Standard it would be a terrible thing for this country. Now we are told that going off the Gold Standard is a blessing, that it will help the unemployed man to find work, and will be a good thing for everybody. 11 it is true that the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Unemployment.: Needs Test. (22 Med 1931)

Mr John Beckett: Will the right hon. Gentleman be prepared to discuss these regulations while they are being drawn up with representatives of the organised unemployed?

National Economy [Money]. (21 Med 1931)

Mr John Beckett: I assure the House that I shall not go into the delicate family history which has again broken out between the two Front Benches. I have listened often to this kind of dispute since the House reassembled, and, even if the Government Front Bench was able to prove that every Member of the Opposition Front Bench agreed to this proposal, that would not make it palatable. Both Front Benches were...

National Economy [Money]. (21 Med 1931)

Mr John Beckett: I am sorry if I am going beyond your jurisdiction. I am

National Economy [Money]. (21 Med 1931)

Mr John Beckett: I have no intention of contesting that Ruling, but, according to the Minister who has just sat down, the two parts of the Resolution are: To consider the fresh conditions under which a certain section of the unemployed are to be put, and, secondly, to provide means for that.

National Economy [Money]. (21 Med 1931)

Mr John Beckett: The Debate has been going very wide. That may have been when you were not in the Chair. I have no desire to follow if you think that it is out of order. I will content myself with saying that it is a great pity that, having had to face the issues we have had to face in this House to-night, the Government should have chosen this time of night to bring forward a Resolution of this sort which is...

Business of the House (Committee of Ways and Means). ( 9 Med 1931)

Mr John Beckett: I do not want to detain the House for more than a moment or two, because I deprecate very strongly any attempt to keep the House sitting too long at this time; but I do think that the right hon. Gentleman who is now leading the House should give a little more protection to back-benchers than is given by this Resolution. Personally, I think that the Resolution is a reasonable one to put on the...

Business of the House (Committee of Ways and Means). ( 9 Med 1931)

Mr John Beckett: I think the hon. Member will admit that, although I have changed my side of the House, I have not changed my tune. I have protested against this just as much from my own party as from the party opposite. My protest is against the method of conducting Parliamentary business. I have never been able to see much difference on any subject between t he two sides of the Table, and on this subject...

Business of the House (Committee of Ways and Means). ( 9 Med 1931)

Mr John Beckett: That is a matter of opinion; I should have resumed my seat by now if the hon. Member had not interrupted me, and I have taken but a very short time to make this statement, because I should deprecate any kind of obstruction at this moment. I do not agree with the Government's proposals, but let them get on with them. I do not, want to obstruct them, but only to register my protest against at...

Orders of the Day — UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE (No. 3) BILL.: Clause 1. — (Provisions with respect to benefit in the case of special classes of persons.) (21 Gor 1931)

Mr John Beckett: I beg to move, in page 2, line 11, to leave out paragraph (b). I gladly accept your suggestion, Sir, that the discussion of this Amendment should be as brief as possible, but, if I may be allowed to say so, I think your statement that there was considerable discussion upon it on the Committee stage is not quite correct. I would also like to inform you and the House that that discussion did...

Orders of the Day — UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE (No. 3) BILL.: Clause 1. — (Provisions with respect to benefit in the case of special classes of persons.) (21 Gor 1931)

Mr John Beckett: The right hon. Lady was quoting the case of workers with whom the Bill was intended to deal—I have not her exact words here, but I remember their purport very well indeed, for they made a great impression on me. Her words were that there were many shop assistants who were workers who went in part time, and my hon. Friend the Member for Gorbals (Mr. Buchanan) challenged her on that. I went...

Orders of the Day — UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE (No. 3) BILL.: Clause 1. — (Provisions with respect to benefit in the case of special classes of persons.) (15 Gor 1931)

Mr John Beckett: When I heard the Minister say that one of the points which my hon. Friend the Member for Camlaehie (Mr. Stephen) had raised, in which he said that this Amendment was of very great importance, was one with which she heartily agreed, it seems to me extraordinary that on an Amendment supported by a considerable number of Members in this House and declared by the Minister to be of the most...

Orders of the Day — UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE (No. 3) BILL.: Clause 1. — (Provisions with respect to benefit in the case of special classes of persons.) (15 Gor 1931)

Mr John Beckett: I am sorry if I strayed. I think that I can make this point without incurring your displeasure. If nothing can be found in any external document to justify this Bill, nothing can be found to justify the Advisory Committee. If the right hon. Lady knows of cases about which she will need technical advice which she is not able to secure without the expense, trouble and bother of this...

Orders of the Day — UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE (No. 3) BILL.: Clause 1. — (Provisions with respect to benefit in the case of special classes of persons.) (15 Gor 1931)

Mr John Beckett: There are two Amendments to the Minister's proposed Amendment on the Order Paper, and I wish to have advice from the Chair in regard to them.

Orders of the Day — UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE (No. 3) BILL.: Clause 1. — (Provisions with respect to benefit in the case of special classes of persons.) (15 Gor 1931)

Mr John Beckett: I am sorry. I am not trying to be obstructive, but I wish to know if we shall be able to move either of the Amendments to the proposed Amendment.

Orders of the Day — UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE (No. 3) BILL.: Clause 1. — (Provisions with respect to benefit in the case of special classes of persons.) (15 Gor 1931)

Mr John Beckett: I do not want to appear chary of accepting the Attorney-General's assurance, because experience has shown us that where a proper assurance is needed, we shall receive it from him with authority, but I must confess that the manner in which this Bill is being conducted in Committee is not very reassuring. We have this Amendment brought forward by the Minister in a very neat, charming, and...

Orders of the Day — UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE (No. 3) BILL.: Clause 1. — (Provisions with respect to benefit in the case of special classes of persons.) (15 Gor 1931)

Mr John Beckett: You, Sir Robert, have been here so much longer than I have, and no doubt will have heard speeches again and again, much more often than I have, and it has been, I think, accepted as a common practice that where there was a very strong case felt for an explanation by a Minister, and that explanation was not forthcoming—I have heard many of my hon. and right hon. Friends, make that appeal...
