Orders of the Day — Clause 40. — (Duty of Local Authorities to Prepare Town Planning Scheme.) (27 May 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: The hon. and gallant Member does not seem to have read the Clause. It does not confer any new powers on a Government Department which it takes away from a local authority. On the contrary, it authorises the Government Department to call upon a local authority to exercise certain powers. The local authority is going to do the work. If I mistake not, the apprehensions which the hon. Gentleman...

Orders of the Day — Clause 43. — (Amendment of 62 and 63 Vict, c. 44.) (27 May 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: There is a good deal in what my hon. Friend has said, but he has not mentioned that the value here is the market value, and it may easily be that you will have a house which costs about £800 or £900 to erect now at the present high prices, and the market value of which, at a future date, may not be more than £700. On the other hand, the price may not fall. I do not like the possibility of...

Orders of the Day — Clause 43. — (Amendment of 62 and 63 Vict, c. 44.) (27 May 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I am quite clear in my own mind that this increase might result in a loss to the local authorities, and I am not prepared to accept the Amendment, not for that reason alone, but for another and quite sufficient reason. We have increased the amount which may be advanced by the proposals in this Bill from 80 percent. to 85 percent., and if we have regard to the very great uncertainty that...

Orders of the Day — First Schedule.: Rules for Determining the Amount of Reduction of Compensation. (27 May 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I beg to move, in paragraph (b), after the words "working-classes," to insert the words or the laying out of open spaces. This is to bring the Schedule into accord with the provisions of the Bill as amended in the Clause dealing with the acquisition of land in slum areas.

Orders of the Day — First Schedule.: Rules for Determining the Amount of Reduction of Compensation. (27 May 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I beg to move, after "paragraph (8)," to insert:

Orders of the Day — First Schedule.: Rules for Determining the Amount of Reduction of Compensation. (27 May 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: On behalf of my colleagues and myself, I desire to thank the right hon. Gentleman opposite and others who have spoken so warmly of us in regard to the measure. The test of the measure is to come. The possibilities within it are enormous. The powers are very drastic. They may be exercised rapidly and by unusual efforts, and the times certainly demand it. One feature of my right hon. Friend's...

Oral Answers to Questions — Plague (Eastern and Central Europe). (2 Jun 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: The precautions for preventing the introduction and spread of plague in this country are prescribed in General Regulations made by the Local Government Board in 1907. I will send a copy of these Regulations to the hon. and gallant Member. I am not aware of any special danger of an outbreak of plague in the regions referred to, but the precautions taken by the port sanitary authorities of this...

Oral Answers to Questions — Plague (Eastern and Central Europe). (2 Jun 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I cannot answer that question without notice.

Oral Answers to Questions — Housing.: Middle-Class Families. (25 Jun 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: The Housing Acts do not contain any de- finition of persons of the working classes which is of general application. Under the Housing Bill at present before Parliament local authorities are given power to acquire and sell or lease land for the erection of houses for persons other than the working classes, and public utility societies already possess power to provide houses for such persons.

Oral Answers to Questions — Housing.: Large Dwelling-Houses (Conversion into Flats). (25 Jun 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: The Housing Bill at present before Parliament provides full powers enabling local authorities to take the action proposed in the hon. Member's question.

Oral Answers to Questions — Housing.: Large Dwelling-Houses (Conversion into Flats). (25 Jun 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I should like to hasten, it as much as possible, but no one will have any power until this Bill becomes law.

Dr Christopher Addison: Perhaps the hon. and gallant Member will put the question down next week.

Dr Christopher Addison: Yes, I know. The Housing Bill provides powers to set aside that.

Oral Answers to Questions — Housing.: Hostels and Settlements. (25 Jun 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I have no special information in regard to the first part of this question. As regards the second part, I can only refer the hon. Member to the provisions of the Housing Bill which I have mentioned in reply to his previous question.

Oral Answers to Questions — Housing.: Hostels and Settlements. (25 Jun 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: Certainly.

Orders of the Day — Dogs' Protection Bill. (27 Jun 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I think the House will thank the hon. Gentleman who has just spoken for having brought us back to the Bill we are discussing. Nevertheless, I am not able to accept the reproofs so generously showered upon us as to the breaches of faith which have been committed by the Government with the House, or to an extent indicated by the right hon. Member for North Hackney.

Orders of the Day — Dogs' Protection Bill. (27 Jun 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: The hon. Gentleman said, "unprecedented in Parliamentary history," or words to that effect. Anyone might think that the hon. Gentleman had not been in the House before, or had never seen opposition, or appreciated the fact that an Amendment might be unanimously and whole-heartedly supported, and then that Amendment having been secured—we will say—by some concession or the Government...

Orders of the Day — Dogs' Protection Bill. (27 Jun 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: In the first place the Amendment was not accepted.

Orders of the Day — Dogs' Protection Bill. (27 Jun 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: It was accepted by the House and moved by the Government. There is no doubt of that. It was moved by the Government so far as we could do it within the limits of the Order. I speak of the title.
