Oral Answers to Questions — Naval and Military Pensions and Grants.: Grants for Re-Starting Businesses. (13 Feb 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I have been asked to answer this question. Arrangements are being made for the continuation and extension of the Military Service (Civil Liabilities) Scheme to officers and men demobilised from His Majesty's Forces in cases of special hardship arising from military service. In such cases financial assistance from public funds will be available for the purpose of enabling applicants to re-open...

Oral Answers to Questions — Naval and Military Pensions and Grants.: Grants for Re-Starting Businesses. (13 Feb 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I could not answer that question without inquiry.

Oral Answers to Questions — Naval and Military Pensions and Grants.: Grants for Re-Starting Businesses. (13 Feb 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: Such a pamphlet has been prepared, and is in print. It is not my business to see that it is issued, but that of another Department.

Oral Answers to Questions — Housing. (13 Feb 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: My right hon. Friend has asked me to reply to this question. This point is being borne in mind in connection with the Housing Bill now under preparation.

Housing.: Notices to Quit. (17 Feb 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: It is obvious to all that there are really two questions raised by the speeches we have heard to-night. One is that dealt with by the Member for West Nottingham in a very direct and informing way, as to the general effects of the housing scarcity. I agree with every word he said as to the evil effects of the existing deplorable state of affairs in many places. The other point, referred to by...

Housing.: Notices to Quit. (17 Feb 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: Oh, yes; before that! With reference, however, to the continuance in some other form, or in a modified form, of the Restriction of Rent Act, definite proposals for that also are being prepared, and I have no doubt we shall be able to announce them also to the House very shortly. But the whole of this arises essentially from the scarcity of houses. The case so well known to all of us of people...

Housing.: Notices to Quit. (17 Feb 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I am afraid I cannot. The hon. Gentleman must ask that question of my right hon. Friend. I know he is working at it, though he has not had the same opportunity that we have to devote the amount of time to dealing with the question. So far as the scheme of State assistance is concerned, it is quite evident the proposals already sent out are generous and definite, and I believe they are being...

Housing.: Notices to Quit. (17 Feb 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I should really like my hon. Friend to epitomise it for me.

Orders of the Day — Local Elections (Expenses) Bill. (18 Feb 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I beg to move, "That the Bill be now read a second time." This one-clause Bill has been pressed on all parties of the London County Council. In consequence of the growth of the electorate candidates for municipal elections would incur increased expenses. I may say that under the old scale there is an average of 14,000 electors to a division; now there are 26,000. The expenditure allowable to...

Orders of the Day — Local Elections (Expenses) Bill. (18 Feb 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: By the leave of the House, and if the hon. Member will allow me to confer on the matter, I think it may be possible, quite fairly and in accordance with his desires, to meet the point so far as he wishes, and I shall be glad to discuss with him and his Friends an Amendment to be moved in Committee. It has been represented to me by the county council that certain candidates may, for example,...

Orders of the Day — Local Elections (Expenses) Bill. (18 Feb 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: On that matter I can again only speak by leave of the House. I am sure the House will agree that there are a good many points in connection with this measure which we might deal with if we have time, and I think that very possibly there will be some other occasion when these matters will require attention. I think, however, that this particular Amendment would be outside the scope of the...

Orders of the Day — Local Elections (Expenses) Bill.: Clause 1. — (Expenses of Local Elections.) (19 Feb 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I am advised that the Amendment carries out the spirit and intention of the understanding we arrived at yesterday. The effect is that whereas candidates may before the passing of the Act have committed themselves to expenses which would have brought them above the maximum of 2d. per elector, notwithstanding the increased number of electors proposed to be allowed by the Act, the Amendment will...

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Health Bill. (26 Feb 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I beg to move, "That the Bill be now read a second time." This Bill is in some respects similar to the one which my right hon. Friend the Home Secretary has now introduced. His Bill relates to a very important side of industrial reconstruction. This Bill deals with a very positive national need. I think that at the present time the House needs little persuading to consider carefully any...

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Health Bill. (26 Feb 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: The reason is this, that this body served all Ministries. We have proved that during the War. I remember that my right hon. Friend and myself had a good deal to do with the designing and setting up of this organisation some years ago, and it is an organisation which has done magnificent work during the War. I think our wisdom has been justified by the event. It has occupied a detached...

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Health Bill. (26 Feb 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I thought it was evident from what I said. The Local Government Board and the English Insurance Commissioners will cease altogether, and all their powers are transferred to this Ministry, which has a separate existence. Therefore I think it is one matter of commendation for the Bill that it does not create an additional Ministry. We come to a matter which, I think, must give some satisfaction...

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Health Bill. (26 Feb 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: The Irish Members can state their views fully in the House of Commons with freedom and facility. I shall be glad to consult their views in any practical way which the hon. Gentleman can suggest. Another problem which this Bill has brought to the front is that it emphasises the necessity for devolution. It was drawn within the limits of our present forms of government. That is why my right...

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Health Bill. (26 Feb 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: No; I do not propose to set up these councils either from the point of view of area or from the point of view of representation of interests. I think you want experience and knowledge, whether on local authority questions, insurance questions, or medical questions, but you want to get the best people you can to advise you, and it is immaterial, I think, what part of the country they come from...

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Health Bill. (26 Feb 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: Certainly. All those classes will come under it. We could not have two better illustrations than those given by my right hon. and learned Friend. Directly you begin to probe into these things you will find that an immense proportion of these cases could have been prevented. In fact, it was only two days ago that I asked the best adviser that we have what his view was, and he said that, in his...

Housing, Town Planning, etc., Bill. (1 Apr 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: On that point the general understanding which I arrived at with my right hon. Friend, and in order to meet the convenience of the House, was that if the discussion on the Financial Resolution just concluded was over by half-past five we might begin this Debate. We know how very important this matter is, and if it is the desire of the House, and convenient to it, I shall be willing to go on...

Housing, Town Planning, etc., Bill. (1 Apr 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I am entirely in the hands of the House. I think myself, in view of the fact that the discussion would have to close at a quarter-past eight, it would be better in all the circumstances to take the Bill on Monday and Tuesday. I do not think that the short delay will make any difference in the real progress of the measure, and I gather from what I hear that that is the general sense of the House.
