Orders of the Day — Housing and Town Planning Bill.: Clause 1. — (Duty of Local Authority to Prepare Housing Schemes.) (26 May 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I think that the hon. Gentleman is well acquainted with the number of the architects and others who are, I am glad to say, helping us in inspections and in the consideration of plans and sites; and I can assure him that, if it is possible even more completely than he himself desires to avoid monuments of ugliness for the people of this country who will come after us, those who are dealing...

Orders of the Day — Housing and Town Planning Bill.: Clause 1. — (Duty of Local Authority to Prepare Housing Schemes.) (26 May 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: May I interrupt? Inserted in this Clause the Amendment would make it read that the Board would have to consider whether a scheme was inadequate or injurious to the natural beauty or architectural amenities of a district and that, if so, the Board might refuse to approve the scheme. Does that not mean this, that in any case where we refuse to approve that scheme, we should have to give our...

Orders of the Day — Housing and Town Planning Bill.: Clause 1. — (Duty of Local Authority to Prepare Housing Schemes.) (26 May 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: The earlier part of the Clause provides for the details of the scheme which refer to a statement as to the deficiency of housing in the district and a number of other matters, which have no relation to the beauty of the neighbourhood. When it comes to the question of the design of the houses, that is another matter. I welcome the suggestion of my hon. And gallant Friend (Lieut.-Colonel...

Orders of the Day — Housing and Town Planning Bill.: Clause 3. — (Power to Authorise County Council to Act in Place of Local Authority.) (26 May 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: The hon. and gallant Member surmised accurately that I feel myself unable to accept this Amendment. We had a discussion on this point in Committee upstairs, and practically, I think, the Committee were unanimous as to the form of the Bill as it stands. It will be seen in Clause 3 that in these cases the local authority has an opportunity of being heard, if it desires to be heard, in respect...

Orders of the Day — Housing and Town Planning Bill.: Clause 3. — (Power to Authorise County Council to Act in Place of Local Authority.) (26 May 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: As I suggested a few minutes ago, I shall accept this Amendment.

Orders of the Day — Housing and Town Planning Bill.: Clause 6. — (Inspection by County Medical Officer of Health.) (26 May 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: The hon. and gallant Gentleman desires to improve the Clause. I do not think this Amendment would do so. It would have quite a contrary effect. The Clause says Where a representation is made to the Local Government Board… It may be by anyone, by a Local Government Board elector, by the Member of Parliament, by the medical officer of health, or anyone else. If the words of my hon. and...

Orders of the Day — Housing and Town Planning Bill.: Clause 6. — (Inspection by County Medical Officer of Health.) (26 May 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: The representation must be made by some individual or by some organisation—it might be a society, or a church.

Orders of the Day — Housing and Town Planning Bill.: Clause 6. — (Inspection by County Medical Officer of Health.) (26 May 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I do not think that an Amendment is necessary here. The matter is already covered by the words of Clause 5, which gives us the power to act in default of the local authority under Parts I. and II. of the principal Act, for the reasons set out. The provisions of Clause 5 cover everything, except appeals against Closing Orders, which are specifically dealt with in Section 10 of the Act of 1909....

Orders of the Day — Housing and Town Planning Bill.: Clause 7. — (Power to Recoup Losses). (26 May 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: On a point of Order. I do not intervene in any way for the purpose of restricting discussion. I think that the more discussion there is the better. But so far as I can appreciate my hon. Friend's point, it is to secure by some machinery or other that something which in the nature of the case is variable shall be fixed.

Orders of the Day — Housing and Town Planning Bill.: Clause 7. — (Power to Recoup Losses). (26 May 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: The matter stands related to the proceeds of a penny rate, but the proceeds of a penny rate may vary as the rateable value of the district may rise or fall. If the proceeds from a penny rate decline, then unless the scheme is to be bankrupt, somebody has to make up the balance, and that somebody, under the scheme before the House, is the Treasury. If the proceeds of a penny; rate increase, in...

Orders of the Day — Housing and Town Planning Bill.: Clause 7. — (Power to Recoup Losses). (26 May 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: No. I am sorry to interrupt, but that is exactly what we do not, do. The loss is stereotyped except as regards the proceeds of a penny rate, but that is the very point. The exception of the proceeds of the penny rate is the material point that varies, and our contribution is fixed except with regard to that.

Orders of the Day — Housing and Town Planning Bill.: Clause 7. — (Power to Recoup Losses). (26 May 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: No; it would be the contribution to the loss. If there were no loss there would be no contribution.

Orders of the Day — Housing and Town Planning Bill.: Clause 8. — (Borrowing Powers of County Councils in connection with the Housing of their Employés.) (26 May 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I am glad to accept the Amendment. It meets an oversight in the Bill. A county council is not, in the ordinary way, a housing authority. We may declare it to be a housing authority for the purpose of housing their employés or contributing towards their housing, but at present the powers they possess otherwise than conferred upon them in this Bill do not entitle them to acquire and hold land...

Orders of the Day — Housing and Town Planning Bill.: Clause 9. — (Provisions as to Assessment of Compensation.) (26 May 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I beg to move, after the word "cleared" ["or part thereof when cleared"], to insert the words, or the land or part thereof when cleared be laid out as an open space. I arranged on Report to bring up words to secure that land obtained in connection with property cleared because the houses were condemned or were unsatisfactory should be obtained on the basis set out in this Clause. It really...

Orders of the Day — Housing and Town Planning Bill.: Clause 9. — (Provisions as to Assessment of Compensation.) (26 May 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: The scheme in this particular case, the scheme of rehousing or the clearance of these sites, includes roads and so forth, but it does not include transport facilities for long distances to and fro. That would fall to another charge. It includes roads and so forth which are a part of a general housing scheme.

Orders of the Day — Housing and Town Planning Bill.: Clause 10. — (Power of Entry on Land Compulsorily Acquired.) (26 May 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I shall be glad to accept the Amendment. The Clause empowers an authority, where an Order has been made for the acquisition of land compulsorily, to take possession after giving fourteen days' notice, safeguarded as in the first portion of the Clause, and begin operations, the valuation and payment of compensation and so forth being determined afterwards. This is, of course, in order to save...

Orders of the Day — Housing and Town Planning Bill.: Clause 10. — (Power of Entry on Land Compulsorily Acquired.) (26 May 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: The other parties are treated for this purpose as owners, and would get the compensation which would be awarded to the owners.
