Oral Answers to Questions — Transport.: Road Construction. (3 Aug 1922)

Mr Albert Atkey: 77. asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Transport whether his attention has been drawn to the urgent need for the improvement and reconstruction of many main roads throughout the country: and whether he will lay proposals before the Unemployment Grants Committee so as to secure for this work the maximum possible grant in connection with any schemes to be approved in the near...

Private Business.: Clause 140. — (Penalty on original vendor of unsound food.) (2 Aug 1922)

Mr Albert Atkey: In the absence of the Chairman of the Local Legislation Committee, I venture to submit to the House a few of the considerations which led the Committee to grant the powers sought by Bolton in respect of this particular Clause which it is now sought to delete, and, in the first place, I would like to correct one or two misapprehensions under which the hon. and learned Member for East Grinstead...

Private Business.: Clause 140. — (Penalty on original vendor of unsound food.) (2 Aug 1922)

Mr Albert Atkey: My reply is that it slipped into the Bill so long ago as last December, and has therefore been available for those who take the view of the Mover and Seconder to deal with ever since that date. Then, again, the hon. Gentleman admitted that the Local Legislation Committee had in three cases granted these powers, but he laid emphasis on the fact that the same Committee had refused the powers in...

Private Business.: Clause 140. — (Penalty on original vendor of unsound food.) (2 Aug 1922)

Mr Albert Atkey: The Bill was just as much brought to the attention of my hon. Friend in January this year as it has been now, and his subtle suggestion that this Bill comes before the House like a Government Measure and has therefore attracted his attention is a little too thin, if I may say so respectfully, even for him. I emphatically protest that after a Bill of this character has been considered by the...

Private Business.: Clause 140. — (Penalty on original vendor of unsound food.) (2 Aug 1922)

Mr Albert Atkey: May I point out that the reason which prompted me to make that statement was this, that the opposition could have been heard before that Committee? Had they been heard and failed, I should have agreed that it would have been quite proper to pursue their objection on the Floor of the House. But they failed of their opportunity, and I do not think they have now any right to ask the House to...

Private Business.: Clause 140. — (Penalty on original vendor of unsound food.) (2 Aug 1922)

Mr Albert Atkey: Not on Private Bills.

Oral Answers to Questions — Housing.: Public Utility Undertakings (Valuation and Rating). (26 Jul 1922)

Mr Albert Atkey: 25. asked the Minister of Health whether a Committee of the Cabinet has been appointed upon the question of the valuation and rating of public utility undertakings; whether evidence is being taken; and, if so, what means have been adopted to obtain representative evidence on behalf of water, gas, electricity, tramways and light railways, hospitals, sewage disposal works and other public...

Orders of the Day — ELECTRICITY (SUPPLY) BILL [Lords]. (25 Jul 1922)

Mr Albert Atkey: I beg to second the Amendment.

Oral Answers to Questions — Naval and Military Pensions and Grants.: Richard Nicholson, V.C. (13 Jul 1922)

Mr Albert Atkey: 5. asked the Minister of Pensions whether his attention has been drawn to the case of Mr. Richard Nicholson, V.C, particulars of which were extensively given in the Press of 18th June; whether he is aware that this soldier won the Victoria Cross in the Egyptian War of 1882–83; that he enlisted in the Great War in October, 1914, obtaining admission in the Durham Light Infantry at Leeds, when...

Oral Answers to Questions — Naval and Military Pensions and Grants.: Richard Nicholson, V.C. (13 Jul 1922)

Mr Albert Atkey: Will the right hon. Gentleman take steps to give the same publicity to his answer as was given to the original statement?

Easter Recess (Adjournment). (12 Apr 1922)

Mr Albert Atkey: I desire to intervene in this Debate for two reasons, the first being the observations that fell from the right hon. Gentleman the member for Paisley (Mr. Asquith) in regard to the attitude of Chambers of Commerce towards this Bill. I suppose in any community, either of business men or any other, there will "be a minority who are always prepared to disagree with the greater wisdom of their...

Easter Recess (Adjournment). (12 Apr 1922)

Mr Albert Atkey: —nd they do it on the rinciple for which my hon. Friend stands in other directions. I can claim that the Association of British Chambers of Commerce is entitled to speak on behalf of Chambers of Commerce.

Easter Recess (Adjournment). (12 Apr 1922)

Mr Albert Atkey: My hon. Friend is surely not acquainted with the procedure of the Chambers of Commerce. We are interested rather in those who manufacture than those who sell.

Easter Recess (Adjournment). (12 Apr 1922)

Mr Albert Atkey: I did not know, and I am delighted to hear it. I understood the principal interest of my hon. Friend was in other directions. If he is chairman of two manufacturing businesses, all I can suggest is that it is a great pity he does not help these associations which are mainly concerned in manufacture. It would undoubtedly be an interesting thing—it might possibly be instructive, and certainly...

Easter Recess (Adjournment). (12 Apr 1922)

Mr Albert Atkey: Then the other manufacturers do not recognise the merits of my hon. Friend. Otherwise we should have had the benefit of his advice in the larger counsels of the nation as far as commerce is concerned. With all respect, I venture to suggest that my hon. Friend would be less able to impress the Council of the Associations of Chambers of Commerce in regard to his righteousness on this subject...

Easter Recess (Adjournment). (12 Apr 1922)

Mr Albert Atkey: I am only sorry that so many people seem to lack sense. It is very difficult to deal with some people by means of the truth. They perhaps suffer the same kind of irritation as they allege their foreign friends suffer when they try to dump their goods on the British market. They are always irritable on the subject. My hon. Friend suggested that in the case of the chemical industry there would...

Easter Recess (Adjournment). (12 Apr 1922)

Mr Albert Atkey: Yes, but the yarn is made in England. This is an industry in relation to which the position is that it was developed in this country, and to-day, owing to abnormal conditions, it is at an absolute standstill, and 90 per cent, of the machines employed in the lace industry and the capital employed in it are also at a standstill. The result is that an equivalent number of men are receiving...

Oral Answers to Questions — War Debts (Cancellation). (28 Mar 1922)

Mr Albert Atkey: 54. asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is aware that statements in the Press have been made that the British Government are entering into negotiations for the cancelment of War debts; and will he give an undertaking that the sanction of Parliament shall be given before the British Government is committed to any definite undertaking to cancel the debts of our Allies?

Oral Answers to Questions — Government Departments.: Valuation Office. (2 Mar 1922)

Mr Albert Atkey: 43. asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many officials connected with the deceased Land Valuation Department are still retained in Govern- ment service; what are they doing; and what is the amount represented by their salaries, offices, and all other incidental expenditure?

Oral Answers to Questions — Metropolitan Police.: Motor Vehicles (Registration). (10 Nov 1921)

Mr Albert Atkey: 66. asked the Home Secretary how many prosecutions have taken place in Staffordshire in respect of alleged offences by motor manufacturers and dealers against the registration Regulations affecting general identification marks, and how many of the same have been dismissed; and whether the activity of the Staffordshire police in this respect arises from the instructions of his Department?
