Oral Answers to Questions — Celluloid Material (Committee). (22 Jun 1937)

Mr John Cartland: asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he has yet set up the departmental committee to inquire into the question of the danger to children and others arising from the use of celluloid toys and other articles; and, if so, what are its terms of reference?

Oral Answers to Questions — Aviation.: Shadow Factories (Labour). (28 Apr 1937)

Mr John Cartland: asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air whether he is satisfied that the necessary supplies of labour will be available for the shadow factories now in course of erection; and whether any steps have been taken to ensure that where labour will come from areas outside those where the factories are situated the housing accommodation is adequate?

Oral Answers to Questions — Aviation.: Shadow Factories (Labour). (28 Apr 1937)

Mr John Cartland: Has my right hon. Friend actually consulted with the local authorities in these areas where the factories are going up and informed himself as to the position in regard to housing?

Orders of the Day — Special Areas (Amendment) Bill.: Clause 2. — (Power of Commissioners to let factories.) (22 Apr 1937)

Mr John Cartland: I have one question about this power to build factories. I am sorry if I am dense about this, but am I right in supposing that the Commissioner has no powers to build a factory except on a trading estate?

Orders of the Day — Special Areas (Amendment) Bill.: Clause 5. — (Financial assistance for provision of factories in certain other areas.) (22 Apr 1937)

Mr John Cartland: What is there to prevent the Nuffield Trust deeds being altered so that the Trust may include within its terms a certified area, so as to bring these into the Bill?

Orders of the Day — Special Areas (Amendment) Bill.: Clause 1. — (Continuation of 25 & 26 Geo. 5. c. 1.) (19 Apr 1937)

Mr John Cartland: I do not think the hon. Member would have had this Bill before him, if we had not taken the action which we did take.

Orders of the Day — Special Areas (Amendment) Bill.: Clause 1. — (Continuation of 25 & 26 Geo. 5. c. 1.) (19 Apr 1937)

Mr John Cartland: I did not mean to speak on this Clause, because I have one or two points to raise later, although I sat here from 4 to 7.30. I put that in for the information of the hon. Member for South Shields (Mr. Ede). I felt that the best thing we could do would be not to waste time, nearly five hours, discussing whether Clause I should stand part of the Bill, and that is why no Member on this side of...

Orders of the Day — Special Areas (Amendment) Bill.: Clause 1. — (Continuation of 25 & 26 Geo. 5. c. 1.) (19 Apr 1937)

Mr John Cartland: We should do much better and give greater assistance to the Special Areas by getting on to discuss the Amendments which are in order. The hon. Member for South Shields suggested that a number of hon. Gentlemen on this side who took a certain course of action last December were now satisfied with this Bill. I think he is quite mistaken. I do not think that any of us is satisfied with this...

Orders of the Day — Special Areas (Amendment) Bill.: Clause 1. — (Continuation of 25 & 26 Geo. 5. c. 1.) (19 Apr 1937)

Mr John Cartland: As the Government are determined, as they have said over and over again, to continue the Special Areas Act, 1934, I say, let us at least tack on this addition. I agree that it is only an addition, but I would rather have this addition made to it than see it rejected altogether. I fail to see any advantage in the hon. Member's proposal to destroy the Act, and thus put a stop to any possibility...

Orders of the Day — Special Areas (Amendment) Bill.: Clause 1. — (Continuation of 25 & 26 Geo. 5. c. 1.) (19 Apr 1937)

Mr John Cartland: Of course I do not, but what the hon. Member found fault with was my statement that Clause I virtually continues the Special Areas Act and might have been included in the Expiring Laws Continuance Bill. He said that he would like to see the whole Act dispensed with and a new approach made to the problem, and I think we are agreed on that, but I say that now is not the time, that it is not...

Orders of the Day — Special Areas (Amendment) Bill.: Clause 1. — (Continuation of 25 & 26 Geo. 5. c. 1.) (19 Apr 1937)

Mr John Cartland: I do not think my question was put in that way.

Orders of the Day — Special Areas (Amendment) Bill.: Clause 1. — (Continuation of 25 & 26 Geo. 5. c. 1.) (19 Apr 1937)

Mr John Cartland: My question to the Government at that time was whether they proposed to do anything, or whether they proposed to do nothing. I said that if they proposed to do nothing they would continue the Act in the Expiring Laws Continuance Bill. However much hon. Members may cheer the observation of the hon. Member for South Shields, the Government did not continue the Act in the Expiring Laws...

Orders of the Day — Special Areas (Amendment) Bill.: Clause 1. — (Continuation of 25 & 26 Geo. 5. c. 1.) (19 Apr 1937)

Mr John Cartland: I merely took that figure as an example, not as a total.

Orders of the Day — Marriage Bill.: Clause 2. — (Grounds of petition for divorce.) (16 Apr 1937)

Mr John Cartland: I am sorry to detain the House after so many speeches have been made on this Amendment, but I am sure they will agree that this is really the most important Amendment to the Bill. A number of us took a certain line in Committee upstairs, and much as we regret having to continue to speak here, we would not wish the House to vote until we have thoroughly thrashed out the point. I take the view...

Orders of the Day — Marriage Bill.: Clause 2. — (Grounds of petition for divorce.) (16 Apr 1937)

Mr John Cartland: I am obliged to the hon. Gentleman for giving an answer to a question that has frequently been asked. The Bill which is to give effect to that change, however, is a private Member's Bill in another place, and I should have thought that that, if it were so important to make the reform, the Bill would have been brought in by the Government. I raised in Committee the point mentioned by my hon....

Orders of the Day — Special Areas (Amendment) Bill. (6 Apr 1937)

Mr John Cartland: Whenever we have a Debate on the Special Areas it ranges over a wide field, and to-day has been no exception, but it is really extraordinary how little criticism has been directed against the Bill. If there has been criticism in the past it is that the proposals which have been brought forward from time to time have been brought forward too late, and that whenever proposals are brought...

Orders of the Day — Special Areas (Amendment) Bill. (6 Apr 1937)

Mr John Cartland: The hon. Gentleman the Member for Hemsworth (Mr. G. Griffiths) must have gathered that this is one of many proposals which we have had, and which we are still to expect on a long-range basis. Trading estates are not an immediate practical proposition to put men back to work. [Interruption.] It is for five years. If you are going to make this a long-range programme and deal with trading...

Orders of the Day — Special Areas (Amendment) Bill. (6 Apr 1937)

Mr John Cartland: I am coming to that point. It is right that the House should certainly consider all these points when considering this Bill. The point I want to make to my hon. Friend on the Front Bench at the moment is: Can he say whether this rise in foodstuffs is being very carefully watched and that the position is being surveyed as far as possible to decide what effect it may have on the light...

Orders of the Day — Special Areas (Amendment) Bill. (6 Apr 1937)

Mr John Cartland: Yes, in South Yorkshire. In regard to this problem the Commissioners will have to deal with it by transference, demolition, clearing up of sites and so on. It is astonishing that of the commitments of the Special Areas Commissioners, less than £250,000 has been spent on the clearing up of sites, amenities, etc. That is very little. I am certain, from the reconstruction point of view, that...

Orders of the Day — Special Areas (Amendment) Bill. (6 Apr 1937)

Mr John Cartland: These figures are for Great Britain.
