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

Dr Christopher Addison: The hon. Member must not misrepresent me, and I do not wish to misrepresent anybody. I only said that the property to which the Amendment of the hon. Member for Central Leeds (Mr. Denman) refers is property which has been called in question because it has been found to be unfit for human habitation.

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

Dr Christopher Addison: And where the Minister is satisfied he may give directions for a payment by the local authority. That is under Clause 61.

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

Dr Christopher Addison: The suggestion of the Minister appears, as far as one understands it, to open the door to a general scheme of compensation which will be wider than it is now. I suggest to the Minister that he ought not to be generous at somebody else's expense, and that the cost of providing for these people must be met through the Exchequer and not through the rates. If the additional burden is to be put on...

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

Dr Christopher Addison: May I suggest, in order that we may understand the position, that it is necessary or desirable that the Minister should state whether the proposed Amendment we are to consider will be limited to the owner-occupier class affected by this Clause or to those generally affected by the Clause, because the case which we have been arguing for the past two hours is that of the owner-occupier.

Orders of the Day — Housing Bill.: Clause 85. — (Amendments of Small Dwellings Acquisition, Acts.) (16 May 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: Before we proceed with the proposed New Clause, which may lead to very prolonged discussion, I should like to know whether the Minister proposes to go beyond the formal moving of it or whether he proposes to finish it and the Amendments to-night, which may easily mean going far beyond the under- standing. Perhaps the right hon. Gentleman will enlighten the Committee.

Oral Answers to Questions — Unemployment.: H. Crosby, Ixworth. (7 May 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: 53. asked the Minister of Health whether he will cause inquiry to be made into the case of H. Crosby, of Ixworth, Norfolk, who, when recently unemployed, was refused any public assistance on the ground that his sons were employed, and whose younger son, on becoming unemployed, was given two days' work four and a-half miles from his home at the rate of 4s. a day, and, in addition, was required...

Oral Answers to Questions — North Norfolk Rivers Catchment Board. (7 May 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: 37. asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he is making any grant to the North Norfolk Catchment Area Board for work at or near Fakenham; and, if so, whether any conditions are attached relating to the terms on which labour is to be employed?

Orders of the Day — Ways and Means.: Transfer of Sum from Road Fund to Exchequer. (1 May 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: I think that this Debate is very interesting in a personal or psychological sense. The right hon. Gentleman has so impressed upon everybody the fact that he is an apostle of orthodoxy in finance that my hon. Friend below the Gangway actually began his speech by describing the Chancellor of the Exchequer as a purist in finance. I must congratulate the right hon. Gentleman upon the success of...

Orders of the Day — Ways and Means.: Transfer of Sum from Road Fund to Exchequer. (1 May 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: The right hon. Gentleman is not fairly representing the position. These are taxes paid into a fund created for a special purpose. If the Chancellor of the Exchequer wishes to levy additional taxes, he can devote them to general purposes quite properly, but he says so at the time.

Orders of the Day — Ways and Means.: Transfer of Sum from Road Fund to Exchequer. (1 May 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: You do not levy taxes voluntarily at all.

Orders of the Day — Ways and Means.: Amendment as to Relief in Respect Oflife Insurance Premiums. (1 May 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: I want to draw attention to a very important consideration that has not received the attention it deserves in this discussion on which I was interested to hear the hon. Member for Doncaster (Mr. Molson). I believe he belongs to the progressive section of the Conservative party, or the reformist or "reconstruction" group, or whatever it may be called. I listened to his argument that he is very...

Orders of the Day — Ways and Means.: Amendment as to Relief in Respect Oflife Insurance Premiums. (1 May 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: That is very interesting, but it is no reply to the argument that the Diesel Oil Tax is a penalty on improvement. It is placing obstacles deliberately in the way of the development of an improved type of engine. Even if what the hon. and gallant Member for Wallasey (Lieut. - Colonel Moore-Brabazon) said proves to be correct with regard to the heavier engine, it still must be true that if the...

Orders of the Day — Ways and Means.: Amendment as to Relief in Respect Oflife Insurance Premiums. (1 May 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: He will be imitating his own great example. Seriously, I can understand the right hon. Gentleman's case when he says, "I am losing revenue and, therefore, I must do something or other to get more revenue." But you would not expect him to design the reinforcement of his revenue in such a way as deliberately to penalise an improvement. It may be, and I hope it will be, that the Diesel engine...

Orders of the Day — Ways and Means.: Amendment as to Relief in Respect Oflife Insurance Premiums. (1 May 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: I would like to support my hon. Friend's Motion, because this, I think, really is an unprecedented Debate. The chief function of the House of Commons is finance—that is the key to all our power—here is a proposal to levy a tax on a common article of food which finds its way into the poorest homes, and the House is not accorded the elementary politness and courtesy of the presence of a...

Orders of the Day — Ways and Means.: Amendment as to Relief in Respect Oflife Insurance Premiums. (1 May 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: I hope I may be allowed to ask the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Trade to explain to us the circumstances which gave rise to this proposal and the character of the proposal itself.

Water Supplies. (18 Apr 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: I should like to stress certain facts in connection with the rural side of this problem. Many of us who have taken an interest in this matter for some time past will welcome the intervention of the hon. Member for Platting (Mr. Chorlton), who knows so much about the question. I am afraid that I do not feel called upon to be quite so timid in my reflections on the inactivity of the Minister of...

Water Supplies. (18 Apr 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: Is the hon. Gentleman aware that within the last three weeks water has actually been transported in carts within 40 miles of London?

Water Supplies. (18 Apr 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: You have not a scheme at all.

Business of the House. (18 Apr 1935)

Dr Christopher Addison: On a point of Order. I wish to ask you, Mr. Deputy-Speaker, to state again the ruling which you gave some time ago with regard to discussion of the Civil Service. I suggest that it is a matter of the greatest possible importance. I understand your ruling to be that Members of the House are not allowed to discuss the powers of the Civil Service. With great respect I suggest that you might give...
