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

Mr John Cartland: They are from the last Ministry of Labour Gazette. It is the registered unemployment for juveniles. My point is, that if we take these figures and also the long-term unemployment we find that the third worst trade for men and the second worst trade for women, is the distributive trade. We are allowing our boys and girls to go into the distributive trades and doing nothing about it, in spite...

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

Mr John Cartland: I looked up the figures this morning and got them from the Ministry of Labour Gazette, in the usual monthly table showing the registered juvenile unemployed. I think I am right in the figures I gave, but if I have made a mistake I must apologise to the House.

Trend of Population. (10 Feb 1937)

Trend of Population. (10 Feb 1937)

Mr John Cartland: No one can say, but at least it seems unlikely. I cannot see that the Ministry of Health can do very much more in the way of lowering the death-rate. It has been pretty steady since 1910. We have already increased the expectation of life in this country by 20 years, and a remarkable tribute is certainly due to the work in that connection of the Ministry of Health, but I do not think we could...

Civil Estimates, Supplementary: Class I. (9 Feb 1937)

Mr John Cartland: I do not think the hon. Gentleman was quite fair in levelling such an attack against my right hon. Friend, because I cannot help feeling that, while the Treasury are bound to answer for the administration, they have not very much say in the day-to-day administration. It will be particularly helpful to the Committee to know how close is the co-operation between the Treasury and the directors...
