Unemployment Assistance Act, 1934. (21 Jul 1936)

Mr John Cartland: I am perfectly ready to receive a broadside from any angle, but I still say, and I can justify it, although naturally I have not the figure for every trade in the country, that there is no trade which shows, an increasing figure of unemployment. Then the right hon. Member for Wakefield said that the unemployed wanted not money but justice, and I think we are entitled to ask how else can...

Unemployment Assistance Act, 1934. (21 Jul 1936)

Mr John Cartland: I was saying that one of the reasons why Members on this side complain of the way in which these Debates have been conducted is that we feel that these Regulations are being discussed as though they were a permanent cure for unemployment, but surely they are only put forward as something which will fit into the whole social structure of the country. The right hon. Member for Wakefield said...

Unemployment Assistance Act, 1934. (21 Jul 1936)

Mr John Cartland: In view of that statement neither the right hon. Gentleman nor any other Member on that side, with the exception of the four hon. Members below the Gangway, has any right to turn round and attack us on this particular point. Suppose that hon. Members opposite—[Interruption.]

Unemployment Assistance Act, 1934. (21 Jul 1936)

Mr John Cartland: Every word that the hon. Gentleman has said is true, but that does not in the slightest way alter my argument. The question that we are entitled to ask is: If hon. Members opposite abolished the means test, as they suggest, wiping it away altogether, what would they put in its place? [An HON. MEMBER: "Money."] That is not the view held by the right hon. Gentleman the Leader of the Opposition.

Unemployment Assistance Act, 1934. (21 Jul 1936)

Mr John Cartland: Fortunately for political scholars, if I may use the word, or political inquirers—[An HON. MEMBER: "Students."] I am grateful to the hon. Member. I should have said "political students." Fortunately for them, the right hon. Gentleman has already made his statement, and what did he say? The means test must be abolished. The only real test possible, in order to find out the tiny percentage of...

Unemployment Assistance Act, 1934. (21 Jul 1936)

Mr John Cartland: No, that is something which we will not accept. If you view these Regulations only as to how they will affect distressed areas or the unemployment areas, particular sections of the unemployed, you are looking at only one angle of the problem and not at the problem as a whole. I speak for a few hon. Members on this side, a very few, who are certain that the right hon. Gentleman will not be...

Unemployment Assistance Act, 1934. (21 Jul 1936)

Mr John Cartland: The hon. Gentleman will no doubt have read the Report of the Unemployment Assistance Board, and he surely does not expect me to give him full details of that Report. I can only quote from it. As hon. Members know, it is always possible to bring forward a certain number of hard cases. One of the difficulties in the constituencies is that when hard cases are brought forward you have always to...

Orders of the Day — BIRMINGHAM CORPORATION BILL [Lords] (By Order). (22 Jun 1936)

Mr John Cartland: I do not think anyone will object to the way in which this Motion has been moved and seconded. Both the Mover and the Seconder, judging by their remarks, show a friendly disposition to the City of Birmingham, and I think it will be agreed that an aerodrome is needed at that city and that the site which has been chosen is probably the best site that could be chosen. They put forward this...

Orders of the Day — BIRMINGHAM CORPORATION BILL [Lords] (By Order). (22 Jun 1936)

Mr John Cartland: If that building is going to cause the loss of life or very serious accidents, it is a serious misdeed. My hon. Friend may object to it, but I think we are entitled to say that that serious misdeed must be safeguarded against by the imposition of serious penalties. May I say one word about the principle of sterilisation? If it is necessary for the municipality to guard the safety of aircraft...

Orders of the Day — BIRMINGHAM CORPORATION BILL [Lords] (By Order). (22 Jun 1936)

Mr John Cartland: My hon. Friend is not correct when he says that under the other way he would get nothing. There is no question of that. The whole principle of compensation is very carefully laid down. It is carefully laid down in Clause 21 that if in any way the rights of the particular owners are to be interfered with, there is full opportunity for compensation to be discussed. There is an appeal in every...
