Orders of the Day — Dogs' Protection Bill. (27 Jun 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: That only makes my argument stronger. The c[...]eet of the Amendment of the title was to amend it to the extent indicated; but we are not bound, having got the Amendment, and as the Bill now is, to state that it is one which as a whole the House should accept—that we can recommend the House to accept it. We have considered it quite fully and with great care; the safeguards and Amendment...

Orders of the Day — Dogs' Protection Bill. (27 Jun 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I am coming to that. The right hon. Gentleman said he loved dogs. So do we all. That is not the point. That is not the question. The question is are these things justifiable? Let us see what the facts are, because the hon. Baronet in charge of the Bill said it is only a question of a certificate being required. That is just it. It is something you have to do in addition to what you have to do...

Orders of the Day — Dogs' Protection Bill. (27 Jun 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: As a matter of fact—

Orders of the Day — Dogs' Protection Bill. (27 Jun 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I withdraw the word "concealed," and apologise. "Failed to mention," shall I say? because what the right hon. Baronet said was that all that was wanted was a certain certificate. It was on that statement that he based the whole of his argument. I suggest that any Member of the House familiar with its methods, and what debate means, would take away the impression that all that was involved was...

Orders of the Day — Dogs' Protection Bill. (27 Jun 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: Yes, I am quite aware of all that. Experiments in regard to rickets are a very important consideration, because hundreds and thousands of people are crippled for life with this disease. I do not know whether it is true or not, but we are told that this disease is probably due to a dietetic defect. It may not be so, but the evidence seems to indicate that it is. A dog can live on a similar...

Orders of the Day — Nurses' Registration Bill.: Clause 4. — (Constitution and Appointment of Council.) (27 Jun 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: Perhaps it may save time if, by leave of the House, I make a statement now. The Government have considered this matter carefully since the Bill passed through Committee. They arranged for meetings with the various parties who are interested in this Bill and another Bill of quite a different character dealing with the same subject which has been introduced into the House of Lords, and we have...

Orders of the Day — Supply. — [14TH Allotted Day.]: DR. Addison's Statement. (30 Jun 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: After the scene we have just witnessed, it is somewhat difficult to refer to Departmental matters. Nevertheless, it is one of the finest features of this House and of the race to which we belong that in the midst of crises we still manage composedly and doggedly to go with our daily work. I will endeavour on this occasion to live up to that reputation. In the first place, I have to remind the...

Orders of the Day — Supply. — [14TH Allotted Day.]: DR. Addison's Statement. (30 Jun 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: The works now in operation and under construction amount to £3,000,000. Works for which the preliminaries have been completed and sanction given are equivalent to a further £17,000,000. There is the further figure where the necessary preliminaries are not yet completed, but where the authorities propose to proceed as soon as possible, and this includes £44,000,000 for housing, to which I...

Orders of the Day — Supply. — [14TH Allotted Day.]: DR. Addison's Statement. (30 Jun 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: We have proposals before us at present as to 3,300 additional beds. The grants made last year were £383,000 in respect of assistance for dealing with tuberculosis. If the hon. Member wants the number of persons I have not got the figures by me, but my hon. Friend the Parliamentary Secretary (Major Astor) will give them when he replies later. Another branch of our work which we shall have to...

Orders of the Day — Supply. — [14TH Allotted Day.]: DR. Addison's Statement. (30 Jun 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: That may be so, but I am giving the facts. If a Government finds out that the position is bad, it is only good sense to say so, and to try and alter it. What had to be done? Remember this is five months ago, and I am now trying to show what has got to be done before you can have a great number of houses in course of construction through out the country. We found that we had to begin from...

Orders of the Day — Supply. — [14TH Allotted Day.]: DR. Addison's Statement. (30 Jun 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: Certainly; it is supplied as a White Paper. I will send my hon. Friend a copy with full details. It is quite official. I am glad to say we have already sanctioned—and the price has been agreed —12,000 acres for housing, which is sufficient, at 10 per acre, for 120,000 houses, and we have site applications before us which relate to a further 18,000. At the present time, the plans with full...

Orders of the Day — Supply. — [14TH Allotted Day.]: DR. Addison's Statement. (30 Jun 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: The authorities who have begun building are shown in the list which I have here. It is a pretty long list, and I will issue it this evening as a White Paper, but I may say Sheffield has a building scheme of 653 houses; Birmingham has started a section of seventy-four, and Bristol a section of seventy-one. That does not mean that all the seventy-one are actually being constructed. In some...

Orders of the Day — Supply. — [14TH Allotted Day.]: DR. Addison's Statement. (30 Jun 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I could not say.

Orders of the Day — Supply. — [14TH Allotted Day.]: DR. Addison's Statement. (30 Jun 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: This does not include the cost of the land: it is simply for the building of the house and the necessary work in connection therewith.

Orders of the Day — Supply. — [14TH Allotted Day.]: DR. Addison's Statement. (30 Jun 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I will ask my hon. Friend if he can give details when he replies. I am afraid I have not the figures in my hand.

Orders of the Day — Supply. — [14TH Allotted Day.]: DR. Addison's Statement. (30 Jun 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I think that is included, but not the cost of the land. The average price is somewhere about £700 in those cases. I find several lately where the price is higher than that, and we must add on to that the cost of the land and other expenses. Of the 12,000 acres already acquired, I propose in our next monthly statement we issue as a White Paper to give the cost of the land per acre, and I...

Orders of the Day — Supply. — [14TH Allotted Day.]: DR. Addison's Statement. (30 Jun 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: Oh, yes; Large numbers.

Orders of the Day — Supply. — [14TH Allotted Day.]: DR. Addison's Statement. (30 Jun 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: They are not skilled men in the building trade—the carpenters, the joiners, and the masons—they include all the labourers of various kinds. The number of skilled men in the building trade unemployed is quite insignificant.

Orders of the Day — Supply. — [14TH Allotted Day.]: DR. Addison's Statement. (30 Jun 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: You said "skilled men."

Orders of the Day — Supply. — [14TH Allotted Day.]: DR. Addison's Statement. (30 Jun 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: Will you give me instances?
