Unemployment. (16 Feb 1939)

Mr John Cartland: I have only known the hon. Gentleman once come to the assistance of the Government. That was in September last, and I then strongly disagreed with him. For different reasons, I disagree with him to-night. I do riot disagree with him when he says that really what we are discussing to-night is the question of poverty. Where I do disagree with him is when he says that we have to consider all...

Unemployment. (16 Feb 1939)

Mr John Cartland: I would like to move him again and I wish to move him up. The point is this. I do not believe you can hope to solve unemployment if you always tackle it from the social end, which is through the Ministry of Labour. You have to combine the social side, which is the lesser side of the problem, with the economic side, which is concerned chiefly with the encouragement of export trade. But you are...

Chief Divisional Food Officer, London. (14 Feb 1939)

Mr John Cartland: Before my right hon. Friend made the appointment, when it was in his mind, did he ask Sir Reginald Ford, who I imagine is in receipt of a pension from the War Office, whether he would do these duties in peace time on a voluntary basis, although, naturally, it would be understood that his expenses would be met? Was he asked to forego this retaining fee of £250 during peace time?

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce.: German Motor Vehicles (Imports). (14 Feb 1939)

Mr John Cartland: Is it not a fact that the motor industry could not apply to the Import Duties Advisory Committee until after the imports take place, and is not this a form of competition that ought to be met before it becomes serious?

Oral Answers to Questions — Housing Rents, Birmingham. (6 Feb 1939)

Mr John Cartland: Is it not the case that this scheme is going to result in lower rents to a large number of tenants, that in fact there is no general means test at all, and that the scheme is being very much prejudiced by the inaccurate propaganda of Members of the Opposition?

Oral Answers to Questions — Palestine.: Gold Coast (Cocoa). (21 Dec 1938)

Mr John Cartland: Before declaring any policy will my right hon. Friend consult the interests in this country as well as the interests in Africa?

Orders of the Day — Expiring Laws Continuance Bill.: Clause 1. — (Continuation of Acts in Schedule.) (28 Nov 1938)

Mr John Cartland: I do not think that anybody on this side of the House, including my right hon. Friend the Minister of Labour, will object to either of the two speeches to which we have just listened. I thought that I discovered a small difference between the hon. Member who opened the discussion and the hon. and gallant Member for Pembroke (Major Lloyd George). The former laid all the reasons why the...

Orders of the Day — Expiring Laws Continuance Bill.: Clause 1. — (Continuation of Acts in Schedule.) (28 Nov 1938)

Mr John Cartland: For industry of some sort or another. For work. I am certain that it is possible for the Ministry of Labour to get very close estimates of the need in each industry.

Orders of the Day — Expiring Laws Continuance Bill.: Clause 1. — (Continuation of Acts in Schedule.) (28 Nov 1938)

Mr John Cartland: Yes. I should accept that as a perfect definition of what I am suggesting. It seems to me the line on which our minds will have to proceed, because it becomes an ever greater need of our time. On the other hand, from the capital side, I think you have to have a proper scheme of retirement pensions worked through industry. Just as labour should be asked to put into the pool some of its rights...

Orders of the Day — Expiring Laws Continuance Bill.: Clause 1. — (Continuation of Acts in Schedule.) (28 Nov 1938)

Mr John Cartland: He paid me the compliment of giving me the impression that he was annoyed with some of the ideas I put forward. I was making the point to which the hon. and gallant Member for Pembroke referred, that, faced with the terrific competition in the export market—it will grow; it will not become less—it is necessary to have some sort of overriding thinking staff for our industrial problems. I...

Orders of the Day — Expiring Laws Continuance Bill.: Clause 1. — (Continuation of Acts in Schedule.) (28 Nov 1938)

Mr John Cartland: I agree that partly the Minister has not the time and partly that this is not entirely his job, but I would bring in support of myself a quotation from one of the right hon. Gentleman's colleagues, another Cabinet Minister who, only three days after his attack was launched upon my poor person, said—and this is the President of the Board of Trade: It is not a case to-day of firm against...

Orders of the Day — Expiring Laws Continuance Bill.: Clause 1. — (Continuation of Acts in Schedule.) (28 Nov 1938)

Mr John Cartland: In speaking about compulsory education, I coupled it with something at the other end of the scale, and that was with a pension on retirement, that would enable a man when he wanted to retire to be able to do so.

Oral Answers to Questions — Post Office.: Late Lords Jellicoe and Beatty (Memorials). (21 Nov 1938)

Mr John Cartland: Has the right hon. Gentleman received any criticisms of the scheme since it was first published in the Press?

Orders of the Day — King's Speech.: Debate on the Address. (14 Nov 1938)

Mr John Cartland: The right hon. Gentleman the Member for East Edinburgh (Mr. Pethick-Lawrence), in opening the Debate this afternoon, said that he thought the best purpose of the Debate would be served if hon. Members were to direct a searchlight on to unemployment and the various aspects of the problem. In the course of the Debate, the searchlights have wandered far, and I sympathise with my right hon....

Oral Answers to Questions — Unemployment.: Birmingham. (28 Jul 1938)

Mr John Cartland: asked the Minister of Labour whether he proposes to take any action in Birmingham to prevent 3,000 of the unemployed in that city from losing, as is proposed, one day's unemployment benefit?

Oral Answers to Questions — Unemployment.: Birmingham. (28 Jul 1938)

Mr John Cartland: May we take it that until the right hon. Gentleman's examination is concluded, this new reorganisation will not be put into effect?

Oral Answers to Questions — Civil Aviation.: Civil Air Guard (27 Jul 1938)

Mr John Cartland: asked the Secretary of State for Air whether he will consider granting the facilities for air training, proposed for the Civil Air Guard, to serving members of the Territorial Army who obtain a recommendation from their commanding officer?

Oral Answers to Questions — Civil Aviation.: Civil Air Guard (27 Jul 1938)

Mr John Cartland: Would my hon. and gallant Friend make the position clear, so that men may join the Civil Air Guard and later when they want to join the Territorial Army, find that they are deprived of these facilities?

Civil Estimates, 1938.: Unemployment Assistance Board. (18 Jul 1938)

Mr John Cartland: I am sure the Committee will be extremely grateful for the speech of the hon. Member for Gorbals (Mr. Buchanan). He has raised a number of points which I think every Member who sits for an industrial constituency in the United Kingdom can bear out from his own experience. The right hon. Gentleman who opened the Debate said that this report, which must be the background of every speech made in...

Civil Estimates, 1938.: Unemployment Assistance Board. (18 Jul 1938)

Mr John Cartland: I do not know if the Noble Lady means to indicate approval, but that is not the method for which we stand in this country.
