Orders of the Day — Coal Mines Bill.: Clause 10. — (Power to constitute Coal Mines National Industrial Board and functions thereof.) (10 Feb 1930)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: The hon. Member for Ince (Mr. G. Macdonald) has been advocating the principle of the National Board, rather than the particular Amendment which has been put forward. The Amendment which we are discussing deals with the actual composition of the Board, and not with the question as to whether the Board is desirable or not. On that point I was not impressed by the remarks of the Secretary for...

Orders of the Day — Coal Mines Bill.: Clause 10. — (Power to constitute Coal Mines National Industrial Board and functions thereof.) (10 Feb 1930)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: I do not happen to be in industry, and therefore I have not had the necessity to consider that point. Mining is an industry which affects the whole country—I am not sure that I see the point of the hon. Gentleman's interjection—and the whole object of this Board is to try and command public confidence, and to arrive at a peaceful solution of what otherwise might be strikes and lock-outs....

Orders of the Day — Coal Mines Bill.: Clause 10. — (Power to constitute Coal Mines National Industrial Board and functions thereof.) (11 Feb 1930)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: I have been sitting through this Debate and I am beginning to wonder whether the same thing will occur on this Amendment as occurred during the discussion of the Unemployment Insurance Bill. We have heard speech after speech from the back benches of the party opposite, and when a suggestion was put to the Secretary for Mines that he would be well advised to take off the Whips, he pleaded...

Orders of the Day — Coal Mines Bill.: Clause 10. — (Power to constitute Coal Mines National Industrial Board and functions thereof.) (11 Feb 1930)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: If the hon. Member had been listening to the Debate, he would not have objected on that point of Order. He has completely misunderstood the purport of the figures. I was not asking for any particular standard wage. The hon. Member for Bridgeton did not dare to put down what the level should be. That would be beyond the wit of him or of the Front Bench. He has suggested it as a principle, and...

Orders of the Day — Coal Mines Bill.: Clause 10. — (Power to constitute Coal Mines National Industrial Board and functions thereof.) (11 Feb 1930)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: What little we have heard on this Clause gives us no confidence in the benefits that are likely to accrue from this National Board. What is the real purpose of the board? As I understand it, the aim of hon. Members opposite is that this board shall be a conciliatory machine, and that when disagreements have arisen in a district they shall be referred to the Central Board which shall try to...

Orders of the Day — Coal Mines Bill.: Clause 10. — (Power to constitute Coal Mines National Industrial Board and functions thereof.) (11 Feb 1930)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: I do not wish to transgress your Ruling, but I was going to relate my argument to the setting up of the Board. I was endeavouring to point out that one of the first matters which this Board will have to settle will be probably a renewal of the wages agreements in the different districts as the result of the passage of Clause 9 and the consequential shortening of the hours of labour. I wish I...

Orders of the Day — Coal Mines Bill.: Clause 10. — (Power to constitute Coal Mines National Industrial Board and functions thereof.) (11 Feb 1930)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: That is obviously what is at the back of the right hon. Member's mind. He would never have gone to the trouble of setting up a Board constituted as at present unless he had some ulterior motive of using it as a step towards setting up national machinery for the settlement of wages. That is the root of this Clause. Its ultimate aim is a Board, a central authority, which will be able by...

Orders of the Day — Coal Mines Bill.: Clause 1. — (Scheme regulating production, supply and sale of coal.) (27 Feb 1930)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: Is not the only regulation in the sale of coal the fixing of the minimum price: which is the question my hon. Friend is trying to make out.

Orders of the Day — Coal Mines Bill.: Clause 1. — (Scheme regulating production, supply and sale of coal.) (27 Feb 1930)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: I have seldom heard a speech which was less to the point than that of the Secretary for Mines. When a serious Amendment has been moved the courtesy of a little further consideration might be extended to it. It is perfectly true that a great deal of the discussion which might arise over the omission of the words "and sale" had taken place before the Division, but it is very difficult to put...

Orders of the Day — Coal Mines Bill.: Clause 1. — (Scheme regulating production, supply and sale of coal.) (27 Feb 1930)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: I have no wish to transgress your Ruling. I was merely trying to show that the Government had paid no attention to the regulation of the sale of coal at all and that all that it has done is to fix the price. Therefore, I submit that I am in order in demonstrating the directions in which I should have interpreted the words "regulating and facilitating the sale of coal." The two questions do...

Orders of the Day — Coal Mines Bill.: Clause 1. — (Scheme regulating production, supply and sale of coal.) (27 Feb 1930)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: That leaves me in a difficulty, because the Government have done nothing to restrict the sale of coal.

Orders of the Day — Coal Mines Bill.: Clause 1. — (Scheme regulating production, supply and sale of coal.) (27 Feb 1930)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: The Bill is a Bill "to provide for regulating and facilitating the production, supply and sale of coal." It is true that this Clause only mentions regulating the production and sale of coal. That is why I have not discussed the question of "facilitating." The only regulation of the sale of coal that I can see in the Bill is the fixing of a minimum price. I do not wish to discuss the whole...

Orders of the Day — Coal Mines Bill.: Clause 1. — (Scheme regulating production, supply and sale of coal.) (27 Feb 1930)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: I am sorry if I am trespassing again. It is rather difficult, in discussing this very vital Amendment, to keep strictly to the terms of your ruling. I do not know whether I should be in order in referring to the effect which this regulation of the sale of coal will have upon the export trade. We have an export trade which was beginning to develop of its own accord and which, if it were not...

Orders of the Day — Coal Mines Bill.: Clause 1. — (Scheme regulating production, supply and sale of coal.) (27 Feb 1930)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: The hon. Member says, "Not at all," but certainly I have heard that argument used time and again, particularly by the hon. Member for Bridgeton (Mr. Maxton), who is one of the leaders of the party opposite. He has always maintained that it was fatal to this country to permit the export of capital to India, because it enabled people to set up factories which competed with this country.

Orders of the Day — Coal Mines Bill.: Clause 1. — (Scheme regulating production, supply and sale of coal.) (27 Feb 1930)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: The hon. Member opposite led me astray. The Government have been driven into this Bill by their pledges at the Election, and I can only express my sympathy with the President of the Board of Trade.

Orders of the Day — Coal Mines Bill.: Clause 1. — (Scheme regulating production, supply and sale of coal.) (27 Feb 1930)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: My name is down to support the Amendment, and I regret that I was not called earlier.

Orders of the Day — Coal Mines Bill.: Clause 1. — (Schemes regulating production, supply and sale of coal.) (5 Mar 1930)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: An hon. Member opposite suggested that we had some sinister motive in moving this Amendment; that it was designed to interfere with the coming into operation of Part II of the Bill; that is the shortening of hours. That has nothing to do with the Amendment at all. The shortening of hours has been passed; and we are left to find the money to pay for it afterwards. That comes into action...

Orders of the Day — Coal Mines Bill.: Clause 1. — (Schemes regulating production, supply and sale of coal.) (5 Mar 1930)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: I beg to move. in page 2, line 18, to leave out the word "half," and to insert instead thereof the words "sixty per centum of." I do so in the absence of my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Harrow (Major Salmon). It is fairly obvious from the discussions this evening that the right hon. Gentleman is very anxious to get these schemes into operation at the earliest possible moment. So...

Oral Answers to Questions — Unemployment.: Training Schemes. (20 Mar 1930)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: Is the right hon. Lady aware that there is a great shortage of domestic servants, and will she take steps to carry out the necessary training?

Orders of the Day — Coal Mines Bill. (1 Apr 1930)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: When my hon. Friend the Member for Chislehurst (Mr. Smithers) was complaining of this statutory power being given to fix prices, I noticed that hon. Members opposite rather jeered at the mention of private firms. I think the hon. Member for Plaistow (Mr. W. Thorne) made a point of that. The party opposite have always been loudest in their complaints of the fixing of prices by private...
