Mr David Adams: asked the Secretary of State for Air whether arrangements have now been, or will be, made for the settlement of compensation claims of injured workmen in Government service in Sierra Leone, by the local branch of the Overseas Department instead of by the respective Government Departments in this country, whereby delays and hardship to injured applicants or their dependants ensue?

Oral Answers to Questions — Injured R.a.F. Employees, Sierra Leone (Compensation) (29 Jul 1943)

Mr David Adams: While I thank the Minister for this advance which has been made, may I point out that there are numerous cases of small accidents which have been referred to this country, and can that matter be inquired into?

Mr David Adams: asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether arrangements have now been, or will be, made for the settlement of compensation claims of injured workmen in Government service in Sierra Leone by the local branch of the Overseas Department instead of by the respective Government Departments in this country, whereby delays and hardship to injured applicants or their dependants ensue?

Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Navy: Injured Admiralty Employees, Sierra Leone (Compensation) (28 Jul 1943)

Mr David Adams: May we take it that, where-ever it is practicable, cases of injury will be settled on the other side rather than wasting months of time?

Oral Answers to Questions — Shipbuilding (Jarrow and Northumberland) (27 Jul 1943)

Mr David Adams: asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether, with a view to expanding current shipbuilding output and protecting our post-war interests in this industry, he will open, at the earliest date, Jarrow and Northumberland shipyards?

Oral Answers to Questions — Shipbuilding (Jarrow and Northumberland) (27 Jul 1943)

Mr David Adams: Is my right hon. Friend, aware that there are considerable numbers of skilled men on Tyneside unemployed? There is an abundance of labour.

Orders of the Day — WAYS AND MEANS [22nd July]: Clause 10. — (Withdrawal of support where notice of approach required by retained lease.) (27 Jul 1943)

Mr David Adams: I am asked by my local authority, which is concerned with a mining area that has suffered very greatly from subsidence, to urge that the Commission should take the whole matter into consideration and see whether the time has not arrived for general compensation to be paid, quite apart from private' arrangements, to all and sundry who may suffer through mine-working. The mining industry is,...

Orders of the Day — WAYS AND MEANS [22nd July]: NEW CLAusE. — (Prevention of subsidence or accumulation of refuse.) (27 Jul 1943)

Mr David Adams: I beg to move, "That the Clause be read a Second time." The purpose of the new Clause is the prevention of subsidence or the accumulation of refuse upon the surface. It seems to me that this is an overdue statutory reform. One might have expected that during the last 50 years it would have been a statutory obligation upon all companies working coal to prevent the great evils arising from...

Orders of the Day — WAYS AND MEANS [22nd July]: NEW CLAusE. — (Prevention of subsidence or accumulation of refuse.) (27 Jul 1943)

Mr David Adams: The Minister has pointed out of the difficulties of carrying out forthwith the proposals in the new Clause. We are not asking for that. We are merely asking that the Commission should be authorised to use its judgment as to whether stowing or packing should take place. If the Minister is turning it down and merely stating that at some future date consideration will be given to the matter, we...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Helps (22 Jul 1943)

Mr David Adams: asked the Minister of Health whether, in the interests of mothers and of control of children, as a war-time measure, he will agree to the provision by local authorities of home helps in special cases where mothers with families have been deprived of, and are unable to obtain, domestic help due to the requirements of the Ministry of Labour?

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Helps (22 Jul 1943)

Mr David Adams: The Minister has not answered the Question on the Paper as to whether he can render some assistance in the matter of home helps to the overworked mothers of families who, due to domestic cares, are unable to attend to their children, which is creating large numbers of hooligans.

Orders of the Day — Supply: Expenditure Arising Out of the War (22 Jul 1943)

Mr David Adams: It is very interesting to hear that but for the Canadian Government's generosity towards our war expenditure, this already colossal sum of £1,000,000,000 would probably have been substantially higher. The Chancellor of the Exchequer has mentioned that where economies can be effected they ought to be achieved. While we recognise that in the non-combatant section of the Armed Forces,...

Orders of the Day — Pensions Appeal Tribunals Bill: Schedule. — (Constitution, Jurisdiction and Procedure of Pensions Appeal Tribunals.) (22 Jul 1943)

Mr David Adams: I cannot believe that the Attorney-General really desires that the Minister's Amendment should be embodied in the Bill. No one desires to prevent the Lord Chancellor discharging a member of a tribunal who ought to be so discharged, but surely we should particularise the conditions under which a member may be discharged. If we do not do so, appellants and the general public will, in certain...

Orders of the Day — Pensions Appeal Tribunals Bill: Schedule. — (Constitution, Jurisdiction and Procedure of Pensions Appeal Tribunals.) (22 Jul 1943)

Mr David Adams: Before agreeing to the Schedule, I should like to suggest that insufficient consideration has been given to the Amendment proposed by the hon. Member for Denbigh (Sir H. Morris-Jones) to insert, after "practitioners": of not less than seven years' standing.

Orders of the Day — Pensions Appeal Tribunals Bill: Schedule. — (Constitution, Jurisdiction and Procedure of Pensions Appeal Tribunals.) (22 Jul 1943)

Mr David Adams: I thought it would be competent for anyone who disagreed to say so.

Orders of the Day — Pensions Appeal Tribunals Bill: Schedule. — (Constitution, Jurisdiction and Procedure of Pensions Appeal Tribunals.) (22 Jul 1943)

Mr David Adams: I want to say that I feel that the Amendment leaves the Schedule in a weaker condition than it ought to be; indeed, that the Amendment has been made unnecessarily. I should like to know why so long a period has been stipulated in the case of medical practitioners when the condition does not apply to any other member of the tribunal. The Minister by accepting this is probably excluding many...
