Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture.: Injurious Weeds. (13 Dec 1937)

Sir Francis Acland: Is not the Minister aware that the only thing which will really remedy this and other problems effectively would be to have a special authority in each county area to see that the land was made really good use of, as was suggested in the "Times" newspaper a fortnight ago and by the right hon. Member for Carnarvon Boroughs (Mr. Lloyd George), in detail, 12 years ago?

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture.: Injurious Weeds. (13 Dec 1937)

Oral Answers to Questions — Unemployment.: Benefit. (13 Dec 1937)

Sir Francis Acland: asked the Minister of Labour whether, in view of the policy laid down by the Ministry of Health that a baby should be breast fed for as long as possible and of the fact that, under the practice of his Department, no woman can receive unemployment benefit while her baby is being so fed, he will say what steps he is taking to amend this practice?

Oral Answers to Questions — Unemployment.: Benefit. (13 Dec 1937)

Orders of the Day — National Health Insurance (Juvenile Contributors and Young Persons) Bill.: Clause 2. — (Contributions by juvenile contributors, their employers and the Treasury.) (16 Nov 1937)

Sir Francis Acland: I am sorry that I cannot support the Amendment. I know that in many of these juvenile employments wages are lower than they ought to be. [HON. MEMBERS: "Hear, hear !"] Of course they are, but I think the cure is to get them higher, not to make this a matter of charity. I think the sooner we get young people, even from the age when they will be entitled to leave school following the age of 14,...

Orders of the Day — National Health Insurance (Juvenile Contributors and Young Persons) Bill. (11 Nov 1937)

Sir Francis Acland: Hon. Members, I suppose, will deal with this Bill after their nature. For my part I welcome it. I say as specifically as I can that the Minister is not insincere—that is rather a strong adjective—because the Bill does not go further. It does not do everything, but it does something which is of extraordinary value. The right hon. Gentleman intimated that he has extensions in mind, and on...

Orders of the Day — National Health Insurance (Juvenile Contributors and Young Persons) Bill. (11 Nov 1937)

Sir Francis Acland: I am quite ready to debate the question of nutrition at the proper moment, but I do not see that I am called to deal with it on this Bill. It is not those who are insufficiently fed but those who are unwisely fed whose teeth go wrong. It is in those families where there is always a sweet bit of cake or a biscuit on the table that the teeth go wrong. In those families where there is no such...

Orders of the Day — National Health Insurance (Juvenile Contributors and Young Persons) Bill. (11 Nov 1937)

Sir Francis Acland: I am sorry, but it is my business to know. I agree that bad nutrition of the mother has perfectly disastrous effects on the dentition of the child, from which it cannot recover except by constant care and attention. I welcome the Bill not as closing the gap, but as shortening the gap. I do not find fault because this contribution has come from a short person. I do not find fault because we do...
