Oral Answers to Questions — Transport.: Old Age Pensions (Investigation). (2 Aug 1939)

Mr John Cartland: asked the Prime Minister whether, when considering the question of old age pensions, the Government will review the position of annuity and retirement schemes in operation in various firms, trades unions, co-operative societies, etc., with a view to bringing them with the State contributory scheme into one uniform national scheme?

Adjournment (Summer). (2 Aug 1939)

Mr John Cartland: I am sorry to detain the House for a few moments, but I would like to say a few words as a backbencher of the Prime Minister's own party. It seemed to me, listening tonight, that there was a difference of view put forward by those who spoke from the Opposition side and those who spoke from this side, and perhaps the Prime Minister was quite justified in saying that many of the speeches made...

Adjournment (Summer). (2 Aug 1939)

Mr John Cartland: My hon. Friend has more people in his division, but I have the largest area. I do not know how many meetings I have addressed in the last year, but over and over again, I have had to deny the absurd impression that the Prime Minister in some way has ideas of dictatorship. I happened to speak some time ago on the same platform as the hon. Gentleman the Member for East Wolverhampton (Mr....

Adjournment (Summer). (2 Aug 1939)

Mr John Cartland: I regret very much to say that I have. That is precisely what I have just said, and if it is of any interest to my hon. Friend, I received a letter this morning from a constituent of mine posted in King's Norton, and signed "Conservative." She has been a Conservative all her life, and she writes to me now to say that she is very upset because so many people think the Prime Minister is a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Civil Defence.: Ambulance Service. (20 Jul 1939)

Mr John Cartland: Is my right hon. Friend aware that there is some complaint that the examination for stretcher bearers, which is very strict indeed, is really too strict for many of the men to undergo it?

Orders of the Day — House of Commons Members Fund Bill. (19 Jul 1939)

Mr John Cartland: I am against the Amendment, but I wonder whether the Chancellor of the Exchequer could say a word about the point raised by the hon. and gallant Member for Epsom (Sir A. Southby). At the moment no discretion is granted to the trustees at all to meet the case put up by the hon. and gallant Member for North Edinburgh (Mr. Erskine Hill). The trustees are tied down by actual financial limits in...

Orders of the Day — House of Commons Members Fund Bill. (19 Jul 1939)

Mr John Cartland: I think the speech we have just listened to is really deplorable. A numbers of charges have been levelled at my hon. Friend the Member for Stretford (Mr. Crossley), who moved the Amendment, which seems to me one of the most important Amendments on the Bill. He has been characterised as foolish, unserious and reckless. Anybody who listened to the speech of the hon. Member who moved the...

Orders of the Day — House of Commons Members Fund Bill. (19 Jul 1939)

Mr John Cartland: There are one or two questions I would like to ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer. I think it is a little undesirable, in dealing with a purely House of Commons matter, that it is necessary to bring in a public trustee. But I think there are difficulties, and probably the public trustee must be appointed. There are three questions. Firstly, with regard to the appointment of the trustees, I...

Orders of the Day — House of Commons Members Fund Bill. (19 Jul 1939)

Mr John Cartland: May I add a word to what the hon. Members for Epsom (Sir A. Southby) said? I think the case could be met if the proviso which refers to paragraph 4 of the First Schedule were to apply to the whole Schedule and not merely to paragraph 4.

Orders of the Day — House of Commons Members Fund Bill. (19 Jul 1939)

Mr John Cartland: It is the money question.

Oral Answers to Questions — Housing.: Birmingham (Rents). (22 Jun 1939)

Mr John Cartland: Even if he will not arbitrate between the two sides, will not the Minister try to do something to bring the two sides together?

Orders of the Day — Military Training Bill. (4 May 1939)

Mr John Cartland: The hon. Member has now used that argument three times. I understand that he is a follower of the hon. and learned Member for East Bristol (Sir S. Cripps). It is only a few years ago that the hon. and learned Member advocated that when a Labour Government came into power, if they met with opposition and had not finished their work at the end of the Parliamentary term, they should continue...

Revenue Depariments. (13 Mar 1939)

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Class V. (7 Mar 1939)

Mr John Cartland: I should like to ask two questions in regard to publicity and the National Service committees. In regard to publicity can the Minister say whether the committees are carrying out any publicity other than meetings, and whether he has looked into the question whether the public who come to the meetings are really the public with whom we want to get into touch? I have seen it suggested that many...

Class Vii.: Stationery and Printing. (6 Mar 1939)

Mr John Cartland: I apologise to my right hon. and gallant Friend for not being present when he introduced this Supplementary Estimate, but I have one question to put to him arising out of items A and B. I should like to know whether some of the loss which has been made and the extra overtime which has to be worked is not due to the fact that there is no Stationery Office in the second city in the kingdom,...

Oral Answers to Questions — National Service. (23 Feb 1939)

Mr John Cartland: Would it not be much better if everybody were to undertake some national service?
