Orders of the Day — Clause 15. — (Powers of Dealing with Land Acquired). (27 May 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I beg to move to leave out the words sold or leased to an employer and insert instead thereof the words used by any person for the time being having any interest therein. This Amendment is one which I undertook to bring forward. The general intention is that the local authorities shall not sell houses for the purpose of their becoming tied houses. This was the intention of the Committee, and...

Orders of the Day — Clause 15. — (Powers of Dealing with Land Acquired). (27 May 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I beg to move, in Subsection (3), after the word "land," to insert the words "and houses." We had a discussion in Committee as to the conditions in which a number of houses might be sold. Sub-section (3) relates only to land, and it was felt that there was no sufficient reason for not including houses, but we could not include them on the same terms as those applying to land, that they shall...

Orders of the Day — Clause 23. — (Relaxation of By-laws.) (27 May 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I am unable to accept this Amendment. There are other Amendments which raise similar considerations, which want some of these matters based on statutory injunctions, consultations, references, advertisements, and all the rest of it, until the whole process becomes so cumbrous and complicated that you cannot get on. Therefore I am disposed to resist statutory injunctions of this kind if I can....

Orders of the Day — Clause 23. — (Relaxation of By-laws.) (27 May 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: My hon. Friend proposes that private owners in an area should be able to lake advantage of the relaxation of the by-laws under certain conditions, and I think that is a fair proposition. I have had his words investigated, and especially the word "compensations," which is not quite appropriate, and may be taken, to mean other things. I think it would be better if he accepted the addition of...

Orders of the Day — Clause 23. — (Relaxation of By-laws.) (27 May 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: The word "conditions" would cover it, and the word "compensation" would be held to cover a good deal more.

Orders of the Day — Clause 23. — (Relaxation of By-laws.) (27 May 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: My hon. Friend who has taken a great interest in the framing of this Bill, has asked me to consider this proposal in a friendly spirit, and I have done so. Subsequently to the discussion in the Committee we inserted Clauses 39 to 41 in the Bill with regard to, first, compulsory town-planning by the year 1923, and also giving the Local Government Board liberty to call upon anybody to prepare a...

Orders of the Day — Clause 23. — (Relaxation of By-laws.) (27 May 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: But we have power to insist on town-planning schemes under the policy which we propose to adopt, and it will be possible, therefore, to avoid this. particular danger in the transitional period.

Orders of the Day — Clause 23. — (Relaxation of By-laws.) (27 May 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I agree with the explanation given by my hon. and gallant Friend, and am prepared to accept his Amendment.

Orders of the Day — Clause 24. — (Consent of Local Authority to Erection and Use of Buildings.) (27 May 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I am afraid I cannot accept the Amendment as it stands. The effect would be to make the position permanent. The limitation of time put in this Clause with regard to the erection of buildings was designed to meet the case of the utilisation of Army huts used for various emergency purposes as dwellings, the erection of which, though desirable and necessary, would nevertheless be contrary to...

Orders of the Day — Clause 24. — (Consent of Local Authority to Erection and Use of Buildings.) (27 May 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: The hon. Member misinterprets the words of the Clause. This is the time during which the buildings may be erected, and not the time they may last or be used as habitations.

Orders of the Day — Clause 25. — (By-laws Respecting House Divided into Separate Tenements.) (27 May 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I think my hon. Friend with respect to the first two parts of his proposal is under some misapprehension as to the scope of the Clause. Paragraph (i) begins "for prohibiting the building of," and (j) begins "for requiring the provision of." But the Clause relates to buildings in existence used or intended to be used as dwellings for the occupation of the working classes. It is, therefore,...

Orders of the Day — Clause 25. — (By-laws Respecting House Divided into Separate Tenements.) (27 May 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: That is true. I take it that the expression "ventilation" will be properly held to include all the parts of a house where people live or sleep. Otherwise I should say the house would not be properly ventilated. With regard to lighting, that is not mentioned in the Clause, and if the hon. Member will be good enough to help me to supply that deficiency, I should be grateful to him. Whilst the...

Orders of the Day — Clause 27 — (Repair of Houses.) (27 May 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I will accept these words.

Orders of the Day — Clause 27 — (Repair of Houses.) (27 May 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I beg to move, at the end of the Clause, to add (7) "This Section shall be deemed to be part of Part II. of the principal Act. This makes it quite clear to which part of the Housing Act this question of the repair of property relates, and also it is necessary in order that the powers which may be exercised under Part II. of the Act may be properly exercised in respect of the words here...

Orders of the Day — Clause 29. — (Penalty on Re-letting House Ordered to be Closed.) (27 May 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I beg to move, after the word "force," to insert the words or any other person. This Amendment is necessary because it may be observed that in certain Metropolitan boroughs, particularly in the borough of Kensington, in respect to these closing orders, re-letting may be undertaken by some person other than the owner, and the house may be farmed out by such person. Those persons ought properly...

Orders of the Day — Clause 29. — (Penalty on Re-letting House Ordered to be Closed.) (27 May 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I find myself here, as I was in Committee, having to resist greater powers being thrust upon us. It should be observed that under the Clause which makes it a penal offence for anyone to re-let a house subject to a closing order, the fine is one of £20. Many of these people are quite unsubstantial and impecunious people, and that would be a very substantial penalty. I undertake to say that if...

Orders of the Day — Clause 29. — (Penalty on Re-letting House Ordered to be Closed.) (27 May 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I sympathise entirely with the object of my two hon. Friends, but by reference to Clause 22 they will see that a local authority has power to give financial assistance to anyone desiring to reconstruct houses, which goes a long way to meet the very cases that have been mentioned, and all the things that have been mentioned by both my hon. Friends are perfectly possible. If the houses are...

Orders of the Day — Clause 33. — (Procedure and Minor Amend ments of Housing Acts) (27 May 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: As the hon. Member was not a member of the Committee the papers may possibly have escaped his notice, but I did circulate to Members of the House a statement of what it is that these particular proposals accomplished in the modification of procedure under the existing Acts. I set out a comparison of the present position and the future position in two parallel columns in a White Paper a short...

Orders of the Day — Clause 34. — (Construction.) (27 May 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I beg to move, after the word "Act" ["has in the Principal Act"], to insert the words The expression' sell' includes the power to sell in consideration of an annual rent charge, and the expression 'sale' has the corresponding meaning. This, I understand, should really be inserted in this Bill, to make it quite clear what is intended.

Orders of the Day — Clause 37. — (Extension of Power to make Regu lations as to Procedure.) (27 May 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I am glad to explain why upstairs I resisted Amendments of this kind, and why I must continue to do so to the end. It would mean that, where, for some reason or another, dilatoriness had occurred and the local authority had been superseded, a statutory local inquiry must be held. It is quite obvious, where anything of this kind will come to pass, you must have a good many communications with...
