Housing, Town Planning, etc., Bill. (1 Apr 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: Then, shall I move that the Debate be adjourned?

Oral Answers to Questions — Demobilisation.: Census of Population. (3 Apr 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: My right hon. Friend has asked me to reply to this question. I am very sensible of the need fox accurate population figures as soon as possible. But I anticipate that the distribution of the population should be much more normal in 1921 than next year, and for that and other reasons, I think it will be better to adhere to 1921 as the date for the periodical census.

Orders of the Day — Women's Emancipation Bill. (4 Apr 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I am sure the House will agree that the very interesting speech of the hon. Member who has just sat down is one of a series that has been most interesting in this discussion, and that the Bill which my right hon. Friend opposite has submitted to the House has given rise to a discussion which in the main has gone all one way. At the same time, there are two or three points and governing...

Orders of the Day — Women's Emancipation Bill. (4 Apr 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I know it is not the case with the Steel Smelters' Union, but at all events a member of the Labour party said that. If we are to make this a real principle, then we must give them all the same chance, whether they are steel smelters or cotton spinners. If they can do the work of engineering, cotton spinning, doctoring, or that of a solicitor, well they will have to take their chance with the...

Orders of the Day — Women's Emancipation Bill. (4 Apr 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: We are not now on the question of qualification, but on the question of sex. I am not making any criticism, but if we are going to accept this principle we must do it fairly and squarely. It is not a question of qualifications, experience, or training, or the rest of it. I have explained that the Government cannot undertake to support the Bill on the understanding that we are thereby...

Orders of the Day — Statement by DR. Addison. (7 Apr 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I beg to move, "That the Bill be now read a second time." I think there is no dispute in any quarter that this matter is of the utmost importance, from the point of view not only of the physical well-being of our people, but of our social stability and industrial content. We are dealing just now with an actual shortage of houses, and with what I may further describe as a concealed shortage....

Orders of the Day — Statement by DR. Addison. (7 Apr 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: Yes; it is Essex Street, Shoreditch. That is a typical case, and there are many others which have developed in exactly the same way. I think it is impossible to exaggerate the social ill-effects and industrial ill-effects, as well as the physical ill-effects of the continuance of conditions of this kind. As the House is only too well aware, it is not my habit, nor have I the wish, to use the...

Orders of the Day — Statement by DR. Addison. (7 Apr 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: In Section 21 of this Bill we deal with that. The next thing is with regard to the large number of houses that are not so bad that they ought to be demolished, but are still very unsatis- factory. What can the local authority do? Under the Housing of the Working Classes Act, 1909, they can require the owner to put his property in a condition, "in all respects reasonably fit for human...

Orders of the Day — Statement by DR. Addison. (7 Apr 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I will come to that. Another less striking but almost equally necessary one of the series of proposals contained in this Bill and the Schedules is the alteration in procedure. I will not go into details; they will be set out in the White Paper which I propose to issue, and are not perhaps fitted for a Second Reading speech, but I believe that the alterations in procedure will be found to be...

Orders of the Day — Statement by DR. Addison. (7 Apr 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: They will be put into the Bill. These are the proposals for dealing with unsatisfactory houses and the slum question. I now come to the proposals for dealing with new houses on open ground. I think it well that I should tell the House quite frankly what the position is. I confess at once that when we had examined the various applications which were lodged with the Local Government Board...

Orders of the Day — Statement by DR. Addison. (7 Apr 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: The machinery for fixing the rents is at the present time a matter for examination, and I am discussing it with the local authorities. I have clearly got to set up machinery for satisfying ourselves, and also the local authority, that a fair rent is charged for the house in comparison, let us say, with existing accommodation of a like character, and other standards which we shall have to...

Orders of the Day — Statement by DR. Addison. (7 Apr 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: Oh, yes; in two or three weeks—a long time before this Bill has left this House. It is clear that in the first place you cannot expect these houses in many districts to bring in a rent which will cover the cost of construction. Our contribution is based on this, that the loss by the local authorities in respect of charges, sinking fund, and all the rest of it, after they have deducted the...

Orders of the Day — Statement by DR. Addison. (7 Apr 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: That is so. At the end of seven years, when we revise the local case in view of the experience as to rents, cost of building, and so forth, then we fix the subsidy for the remainder of the term of the loan, and we take the seven years' period in the first place because we do not know what the requirements will be in a few years' time. It is very necessary that we should aim at the end of that...

Orders of the Day — Statement by DR. Addison. (7 Apr 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I would recommend my hon. Friend, before he sets out to kill private building, to find out how many houses for the working classes have been built by private builders. He will learn that nineteen out of every twenty houses of a decent kind occupied by the working classes before the War were built by private enterprise. Therefore I think he should be careful before he finally decides on that...

Orders of the Day — Statement by DR. Addison. (7 Apr 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I shall make special arrangements with regard to the rent proposals for rural areas.

Orders of the Day — Statement by DR. Addison. (7 Apr 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: No; I am speaking now of the machinery for determining the rents. I am not aiming at charity rents, because I was trying, if I had not been interrupted, to lead up to this point, that whether the State builds or the private individual builds, you must aim, when you have got rid of war inflation, at the rent received being a proper charge on the house, otherwise you will ruin building on a...

Orders of the Day — Statement by DR. Addison. (7 Apr 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: No, there must be an inquiry. Another very important source of assistance, I believe, will be the public utility societies. A large number of employers, I am glad to say, and corporations of different kinds, and, I hope, the co-operative societies, in response to some inquiry which has been made, are pro-poising to form public utility societies. There will be a White Paper issued, and we will...

Orders of the Day — Statement by DR. Addison. (7 Apr 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: No scheme would be approved which did not recognise the amenities. Certainly they will be part of the scheme. There is a case before the Department now of a large firm which is proposing to build at least 6,000 houses under proper town-planning arrangements as a public utility society, and there are others coming along. It is provided that, where a scheme is approved, the Treasury may find 75...

Orders of the Day — Statement by DR. Addison. (7 Apr 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: Largely. A number of brickyards required new machinery. Brickyards, as everybody knows, which are of importance in their locality, and were fully made use of in pre-war times, were rather out of date. It is hoped, so I am informed by the Ministry, that they will be able to provide 3,000,000,000 bricks during 1919, and at least 5,000,000,000 next year. We shall certainly require more next...

Orders of the Day — Statement by DR. Addison. (7 Apr 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: All I can say to that is that three months ago every brickyard in the country was asked to send in the names and addresses of every man they wanted. We had no end of trouble to get that list. So far as I know every person concerned has been demobilised. I cannot undertake to look into individual cases; but perhaps the hon. and gallant Gentleman will send me details.
