Orders of the Day — Housing Bill.: Clause 2. — (Definition of overcrowding.) (20 May 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: I think it is a gross discourtesy to the House of Commons.

Orders of the Day — Housing Bill.: Clause 3. — (Offences in, relation to overcrowding.) (20 May 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: The hon. Member seems to imagine that there will be hordes of inspectors.

Orders of the Day — Housing Bill.: Clause 5. — (Power of local authority to authorise the temporary use of a house by persons in excess of the permitted number). (20 May 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: I do not want to.press this point, but I think it is right that we should ask the Solicitor-General also to give his attention to it. I am not in the least objecting to the general purpose for which the hon. Gentleman is contending; the only question is as to what the Clause will mean with these words in it. I suggest to the Solicitor-General that this new Sub-section will give a general...

Orders of the Day — Housing Bill.: Clause 15. — (Purchase of land for the purposes of re-devolopment.) (20 May 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: I beg to second the Amendment.

Orders of the Day — Housing Bill.: Clause 24. — (Central Housing Advisory Committee.) (20 May 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: The right hon. Gentleman's promise is not to appoint but to consider the appointment of representatives from such bodies.

Orders of the Day — Housing Bill.: Clause 25. — (Power to establish Housing Management Commissions.) (20 May 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: We have had an interesting revelation of the mind of the Minister, and I hope that my hon. Friends will take careful note of it. According to the right hon. Gentleman's understanding, apparently, it is in keeping with the true principles of democracy that a local authority should be able to divest itself of the ownership of houses, paid for out of public funds and vest that ownership in an ad...

Orders of the Day — Housing Bill.: Clause 57. — (Power of local authority to order demolition of obstructive building.) (20 May 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: I think that we are entitled to a little more explanation on this Amendment. As I understand the exemption which he is proposing should be inserted in the Clause, a gasometer, for instance, could not by any means be removed. It might mean that a clearance proposed by a local authority and the replanning of the area would be completely sterilised and made almost impossible if a veto of this...

Orders of the Day — Housing Bill.: Clause 60. — (Amendment as to buildings in clearance area on ground of bad arrangement, etc., and repeal of provision for reduction of compensation.) (20 May 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: The right bon. Gentleman has represented the errors of his colleague the Chancellor of the Exchequer in an attractive fashion, and it is a, pity that the Chancellor of the Exchequer is not here to listen, because he more than anyone else has championed the justice of these provisions and has been responsible for their continuance. What is the case? It is the case of property condemned as...

Orders of the Day — Housing Bill.: New Clause. — (Regulation.) (17 May 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: I beg to move, "That the Clause be read a Second time." It will be seen that the Clause requires that, as a condition of granting the assistance available under the Bill, the Minister shall prescribe that the houses which the provision is assisting shall be of a satisfactory character. There is nothing new in the proposal, and the absence of it from the Bill is very regrettable. My hon....

Orders of the Day — Housing Bill.: New Clause. — (Regulation.) (17 May 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: I do not want to impose on the good will of the House by making a further speech on the subject, but I crave permission to make some observations on the references to previous Acts which the Minister has made, because I gather that he regards them as a sufficient reason for not accepting this Clause.

Orders of the Day — Housing Bill.: New Clause. — (Regulation.) (17 May 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: I do not wish to misrepresent the right hon. Gentleman. The point I am making that whilst we agree with the excellent speech which he made in support of the Clause, and are disappointed that he did not accept it, it is our duty to point out the distinction between the position taken up by the Minister and the provisions of those Acts. The Minister referred to Section 37 of the Act of 1930,...

Orders of the Day — Housing Bill. (16 May 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: Not at all—not on this side.

Orders of the Day — Housing Bill. (16 May 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: I would call attention to the facility with which, in spite of his objection, the right hon. Gentleman falls in with this very dangerous suggestion. The particular Clause to which the Amendment refers is one which in our view, although we represent a small minority, involves an increase in the compensation payable on the acquisition of property which has been condemned, which we regard as...

Orders of the Day — Housing Bill. (16 May 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: I would add my protest to that of my right hon. Friend, and I would appeal to the Minister in the interests of the procedure of the House, which is of much more importance than party divisions. This is a case in which, had it not been for the Motion on the Paper, the Amendments would not have been called by Mr. Speaker, because they would have been out of order, according to the procedure of...

Orders of the Day — Housing Bill. (16 May 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: May I with great respect—and I am sure the right hon. Gentleman will allow me—say he has misunderstood the point. The point at issue does not concern the Motion on the Paper which we fully understand; it is the acceptance by the Government of Amendments which are not even on the Paper and which are not even in manuscript, moved indiscriminately in any part of the House in respect of the...

Orders of the Day — Housing Bill. (16 May 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: It is necessary to recall that the Minister has agreed that the House should have an opportunity of re-discussing a matter which was brought up by the hon. Member for Central Leeds

Orders of the Day — Housing Bill. (16 May 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: I am not concerned with the small point raised by the hon. Member. I am concerned with his desire to recommit the Bill for the discussion of the vital Clause affecting compensation where property is taken over by a local authority. The Minister knows that the discussion of the Clause was very prolonged upstairs. It gives rise to acute differences of opinion. Notwithstanding that prolonged...

Orders of the Day — Housing Bill.: Clause 61. — (Payments in respect of well-maintained houses.) (16 May 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: I am sure that the House has been impressed very much by the tragic character of some of the cases put forward. We all have heard of them from time to time. None the less we have to remember that the property under consideration is property that has been condemned, after inspection, as unfit for human habitation. That is where this proposal begins. I feel very shy of committing myself to the...

Orders of the Day — Housing Bill.: Clause 61. — (Payments in respect of well-maintained houses.) (16 May 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: The consideration that presents itself to my mind, if the Amendment were adopted, is that it would certainly limit the number of hard cases, because it would veto slum clearance in a large number of areas. I understand that the Clause as it stands is estimated to add an appreciable percentage to the cost of slum clearance in London. Figures have been given to me. How true they are I do not...
