SOME REASONS. ? I SOME_S.ONS. 1 Why Î3 clothing dear? This was the question asked in Parliament the other day. The answers are:— J (1) Reckless expenditure on da-ess by the workers. (2) Large profit-taking by evOTY one con- cerned in the trade, from wool merchant to tailor. «^(8) The ivdtiplicity of profit-takers, in oftber words, speculators. 1Vhile representative of the woollen trade operatives on the Wool Council are declaring against high prices, they are silent on the matter of the high w of the operatives and the decreased produc- tion due to a reduction of hours. In six months we have exported three times the amount of cloth exported dur- ing 1913. The value has increased by 500 per cent.

"BOB" SMILLIE. I Reference to Swansea Bye-Election Mr. Robert Smill ie, speaking at Rothwell election in Bellshill on Thurs- day night, dealt with the coal situation. The Government had said the increase was necessary to meet the cost of grant- ing shorter hours and increasing the wages to the minere. He believed the increase had been de- liberately made because of the elections in Bothwell and Swansea. An attempt had been made to blame the miner for the decrea&ed output, but the Miners' Federation had challenged the Government. They had begged the Coal Controller to make an inquiry. I WHY OUTPUT IS RESTRIC-I ED. I I- I Hundreds of letters bad, said Mr. I I Smillie, been placed before the Govern- ment to prove that men were lying in a I pit for half work, and others were turned back when they reached the pithead. That was the reason for the reduction in I output. The miners were anxious that the best possible output should be se- cured.

M.P.' s BUTTER. II o- I I "Pats" at £ 1-1-4 per Pound. I HOUSE OF COMMONS, Friday. I Major Sir Keith Fraser asked the Chair- man of the Kitchen Committee if he was aware that pats of butter are being sold in the members' tea rooms at penny per pat, and that four of the pats weigh ex- actly a quarter of an ounce, and, in view I of the fact that these pats were therefore I being sold at the rate of 5:1 Is. 4d. per lb., I wculd he toko steps to stop this excessive profiteering in food. jr James Agg Gardner said be could assure the hon. member that the Kitchen C< mmittoe had no desire to profiteer. The amount of the portion of butter dis- tributed was governed by a regulation of the Food Controller, which restricted thorn to one thirtieth of an ounce per I }¡r-ad per meal per day. The charge was fixed at a penny per portion, as that seemed the only convenient and proper amount. He was aware that a smaller !:1J. did exist-a bawbee—but it was not I much in evidence. Sir J. D. Rees: Is it really butter of the b?st quality, or only margarine? ir J. Agg Gardner: Yes, sir. We have ,no margarine. (Laughter and cheers.) ACQUISITION OF LAND. I On the order for the third reading of tl-h Acquisition of Land Assessment of Compensation Bill, Sir Donald Macl-ean ns-t'ved the rejection of the measure on the ground that it set up an unnecessary a-} expensive staff of valuers, and failed to establish the principle that the value on which land was taxed should also be ti.tt v-alue at which it might be acquired I fo- public purposes. Ninety per cent. of the land likely to be required during the I five or six years for housing, land sitlement. a.nd tra.nsport had already b- on provisionally valued by a competent staff. —
