Oral Answers to Questions — Housing.: Relief Measures. (16 Apr 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: My right hon. Friend has asked me to reply to this question. I am fully aware of the great shortage in housing accommodation and I am using every endeavour to secure that it shall be met as rapidly as possible. I am willing to consider proposals for the provision of temporary accommodation on the lines suggested by the hon. Member in places where the shortage is specially acute. I cannot,...

Orders of the Day — HOUSING, TOWN PLANNING, Etc., [EXPENSES]. (1 May 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: With regard to the course taken by my hon. Friends opposite, I am advised that the important matters which they wish to raise on their Amendments can be taken more appropriately upstairs in Committee. In regard to the point made by the Noble Lord, I am sure there has been no desire to rush or smuggle through—as he calls it—this Resolution at a late hour to-night. We had hoped to get it...

Oral Answers to Questions — Hampshire County Council (Divisional Road Surveyor). (12 May 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I have seen the advertisement referred to. I cannot think that the county council had any thought of debarring ex-officers and soldiers who were formerly experienced in road work, and I will communicate with the council on the subject. I believe local authorities generally are fully alive to the importance of taking every opportunity of giving employment to suitable ex-Service men and are...

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Military Tribunals.: Work of National Importance. (12 May 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I have been asked to answer this question. The Military Service Tribunals continue in being so long as the Military Service Acts are in force; their work is, however, suspended. Men who hold exemption on condition that they do work of national importance, if they have changed that occupation, could, however, apply for a renewal, if the circumstances arose. No doubt some demobilised men are...

Orders of the Day — Housing and Town Planning Bill.: New Clause. — (Extension of 45 and 46 Vict c. 38.) (26 May 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: This is a Clause to enable a person who is a life owner of land to give some of it for the purpose of building houses. I am always glad of gifts in aid of housing, and with certain verbal alterations which would put the Clause into somewhat better shape, I shall be prepared to accept it. Substantially I should like to alter the wording of the first part of the Clause by leaving out the words...

Orders of the Day — Housing and Town Planning Bill.: New Clause. — (Extension of 45 and 46 Vict c. 38.) (26 May 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I am afraid the hon. Member must have misinterpreted the meaning of this proposal. This is a proposal whereby a person who is not in the ordinary way able to part with land of which he is the tenant for life will be able to give a certain amount of the land for the purpose of housing, but it shall not be more than two acres in extent. I am proposing to add "without the consent of the Court,"...

The proviso will then read: "Provided that no more than two acres shall be granted as a site for such dwellings or gardens in any one parish without payment of the full price or rent for the excess, except under an Order of the Court." I will deal at a later stage with the point raised by the...

Orders of the Day — Housing and Town Planning Bill.: New Clause. — (Extension of 45 and 46 Vict c. 38.) (26 May 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: The point was that not more than two acres could be given in any one parish, although you might have a considerable number of owners in that parish who would give two acres. That is a point which will be set right. I would not like to pledge myself to the words which will set the matter right, because I am advised that the point would not arise; but if the point does arise, and if the...

Orders of the Day — Housing and Town Planning Bill.: New Clause. — (Extension of 45 and 46 Vict c. 38.) (26 May 1919)
