Clause 11. — (Short Title, Commencement, and Repeal, and Interpretation.) (9 Apr 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I am sure that my hon. and gallant Friend and I are indebted to my right hon. Friend very deeply for what he has said with regard to this Bill and our share of work in connection with it. As he well knows, it had been the subject of long, and anxious, and difficult conferences before it came into Parliament at all. It is just as much a source of satisfaction to him, I am sure, as it is to us...

Oral Answers to Questions — Import Restrictions.: Animal Diseases (Slaughterhouses). (10 Apr 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: Questions relating to the notification of diseases of animals and as to providing compensation are dealt with by my right hon. Friend the President of the Board of Agriculture and Fisheries. In regard to the group of diseases mentioned, I will confer with my right hon. Friend. The question of providing public slaughter houses is under consideration.

Oral Answers to Questions — Housing.: Council (Membership). (10 Apr 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I will look into the point raised in the hon. Member's question, and if it appears that legislation is necessary to deal with it, I will consider whether any provision to meet it would come within the scope of the Housing and Town Planning Bill.

Oral Answers to Questions — Health Visitors. (10 Apr 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I have the subject of the training qualifications and duties of health visitors now under consideration; and though my hon. Friend will no doubt assume that I have competent advisers, I shall of course be happy to receive suggestions from him. I may add that I have already invited suggestions from a number of representative persons.

Oral Answers to Questions — Venereal Diseases (Notification). (10 Apr 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. In reply to the latter part of the question, I would refer the hon. Member to the statement made in the House yesterday by my hon. Friend the Parliamentary Secretary.

Oral Answers to Questions — Out-of-Work Donation.: Works of Highway Improvements. (14 Apr 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I have for some time past been pressing local authorities to put in hand necessary works, not only on roads but of every other character, which would tend to reduce unemployment, and the response of the authorities has shown that they are generally fully alive to the importance of taking this course. There are no doubt difficulties as regards materials and otherwise both in respect of roads...

Oral Answers to Questions — Food Supplies.: Local Government Board. (14 Apr 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I have been asked to reply to this question. If the Ministry of Health Bill becomes law, the Local Government Board will be merged in the new Ministry and will cease to have a separate existence. The second part of my hon. Friend's question, therefore, does not arise.

Oral Answers to Questions — Food Supplies.: Local Government Board. (14 Apr 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: If the hon. Gentleman will look at the Bill he will see what Departments exactly it is proposed to transfer.

Oral Answers to Questions — Works of Public Utility. (14 Apr 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I am afraid I cannot give the information ased for, but inspectors of the Local Government Board have visited more than 700 local authorities' areas, and have reported to me that works the cost of which is estimated at nearly £2,000,000 are already in progress, and that, exclusive of housing, works estimated to cost a further sum exceeding £14,000,000 have been fully authorised, and the...

Housing and Town Planning [Expenses]. (14 Apr 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I beg to move, That, for the purposes of any Act of the present Session to amend the enactments relating to the housing of the working classes, town planning, and the acquisition of small dwellings, it is expedient to authorise the payment, out of moneys to be provided by Parliament, of expenses incurred by any Government Department: (a) When acting in the place of local authorities or county...

Housing and Town Planning [Expenses]. (14 Apr 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: The present financial year, 1920–21, and 1921–22.

Housing and Town Planning [Expenses]. (14 Apr 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: Yes, about that. Anyhow, taking that as a round figure of the schemes which will be authorised, if you take it at 500,000 houses, a loss of 5s. a week would ultimately mean an annual contribution of £6,500,000 in aid of this housing scheme. That is what the loss would amount to at 5s. a week. Hon. Members can easily reckon for themselves how the rate of loss is estimated when I say that 1s....

Housing and Town Planning [Expenses]. (14 Apr 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: No, it is inclusive. Allowing for what comes in from the 1d. rate and from other sources of income, such as rent, and so on, we shall have to face a loss of 5s. per week per house. We all know how conjectural the figure is. It depends upon the cost of building during the next two years. I am doing my best to meet the wish of the Committee that I should give some kind of estimate. If you...

Housing and Town Planning [Expenses]. (14 Apr 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I ought to have said we estimate that the loss falling upon this year will not exceed probably £500,000.

Housing and Town Planning [Expenses]. (14 Apr 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I anticipated my right hon. Friend's wishes and did everything I could to meet them. The terms of the Motion were finally settled on Friday evening. I did everything I could to get it printed and circulated, but I was too late. I am exceedingly sorry I was too late.

Housing and Town Planning [Expenses]. (14 Apr 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I am surprised that the right hon. Gentleman who has just spoken objected to any assistance being given under this Bill to the public utility societies, housing trusts, and so forth, because that objection, I must remind him, was not voiced by any member of his party on the Second Reading of the Bill, so far as my recollection goes. I believe it will be found in Committee, and indeed I will...

Housing and Town Planning [Expenses]. (14 Apr 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I will look it up. I confess it is very difficult to deal with public utility societies in the same way as local authorities, who are responsible to the ratepayers. But I quite agree that the terms given to the societies are not the same as to local authorities. We must regard local authorities as having the first claim oh us, but we have gone a long way in assisting public utility societies....

Housing and Town Planning [Expenses]. (14 Apr 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I am very anxious to do all I can to meet my right hon. Friend opposite. I agree, though, with my hon. Friend (Sir R. Adkins) that if my right hon. Friend had had as much opportunity as I have had to look into the Clauses of the Housing Bill he would know perfectly that his picturesque description does not apply. As a matter of fact, a good deal is dependent upon the Financial Clause....

Ciause 1. — (Expenses of Local Elections.) (14 Apr 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I beg to more, That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment. This is a Bill to reduce the cost of local elections from 3d. to 2d. per head of the electors. This proviso was inserted in the event of the Bill becoming law shortly before the last London County Council elections. The elections having taken place before the Bill becomes law that proviso is no longear necessary....

Oral Answers to Questions — Demobilisation.: Old Age Pensions. (16 Apr 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: Apparently the local pension officer refrained from issuing the pension because he considered it probable that the Local Government Board might have enter- tained an appeal against the Pension Subcommittee's decision of the 23rd January last. I have now caused the papers as to Mrs. Prosser's claim to be returned to the pension officer, and have asked him to deliver a pension order book as...
