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

Mr Cyril Culverwell: I did not wish to depart from the Clause. What I was trying to do was to relate my argument to the price of coal. I would say, again, that not only is there this great mining interest in this House, which can subdue any outcry against the increased cost of coal, but there is also the direct incentive which the miners will get from any increase in the cost of coal. We have been told by the...

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

Mr Cyril Culverwell: I should not have risen at all to take part in the Debate were it not that I was asked to do so by the Corporation of Bristol. I feel still mare urged to say a few words by the very unsatisfactory replies which the President of the Board of Trade has given as to discrimination against a public utility company. I have a letter from the Corporation of Bristol which, having referred to the fear...

Orders of the Day — Coal Mines Bill. (3 Apr 1930)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: I should like to be the first to congratulate the Secretary for Mines on having preached a most ex- cellent sermon, full of sentiment, as he admitted, but singularly lacking in logic. He laid particular stress upon the improvements in the Bill which have been carried out as the result of Amendments moved from this side and accepted by the Government. Let me add my tribute, at this point to...

Orders of the Day — Coal Mines Bill. (3 Apr 1930)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: I do not object to the Government trying to carry out their election pledge, and I can only regret that they have not carried out the whole of their pledge. They seem to be content with the fulfilment of half of it What I regret is that the Government, and I have no doubt the hon. Lady also, was so unscrupulous and unmindful of the facts of the situation as to give that pledge at the last...

Orders of the Day — Coal Mines Bill. (3 Apr 1930)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: I am afraid I do not understand the hon. Member's question.

Orders of the Day — Coal Mines Bill. (3 Apr 1930)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: I defer to your Ruling, Sir, and I only mentioned the 90-hour fortnight and the spread-over of hours to show how easy it would have been to avoid all this complicated and vicious legislation by adopting the sensible and well reasoned suggestion which came from this side. Rather than do that, hon. Members have abandoned all their Free Trade principles, and have set out to tax the raw material...

Orders of the Day — Labour and Health Buildings, Great Britain. (8 Apr 1930)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: I hope the First Commissioner of Works will be able to give a satisfactory explanation in regard to the delay which has occurred in the provision of proper accommodation at the Employment Exchanges. What astonishes me is that in all quarters of the House there are not complaints not only about the sites but also that the Department has invariably ignored local opinion in choosing the site and...

Orders of the Day — Labour and Health Buildings, Great Britain. (8 Apr 1930)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: I do not think the right hon. Gentleman's reply in connection with the Employment Exchanges at Bristol is quite adequate and fair.

Orders of the Day — Labour and Health Buildings, Great Britain. (8 Apr 1930)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: The right hon. Gentleman assures us that the matter is under consideration. I would like to tell the Committee that this matter has been under consideration for nearly three years.

Orders of the Day — Labour and Health Buildings, Great Britain. (8 Apr 1930)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: The site has been recommended to the local authority, and yet they still persist in their red tape and unnecessary delay.

Orders of the Day — Labour and Health Buildings, Great Britain. (8 Apr 1930)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: I am not saying that that is due to any Government, Socialist or otherwise. I do think that it is time that some decision was arrived at that will be satisfactory to the municipality.

Private Business.: CARDIFF CORPORATION BILL (By Order). (30 Apr 1930)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: I beg to second the Amendment. I should like to remind the House of the circumstances under which these Clauses have come down to this House for discussion. They are very remarkable. To begin with, in Committee upstairs these Clauses were carried by a majority of one, the Chairman having voted twice. I have always understood that it is the usual practice for the Chairman of a Committee, where...

Private Business.: CARDIFF CORPORATION BILL (By Order). (30 Apr 1930)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: I do not quite understand the hon. Member's interjection. If he refers to the Chairman's casting vote—

Private Business.: CARDIFF CORPORATION BILL (By Order). (30 Apr 1930)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: If the hon. Gentleman listens to what I am saying, instead of putting his own thoughts into words, he will not make such an absurd suggestion. I made no such statement. I said that I understood—and I may be wrong—that it is the usual practice for a Chairman not to give his casting vote—in other words to vote twice upon the same point—in favour of an innovation, but to give his vote,...

Private Business.: CARDIFF CORPORATION BILL (By Order). (30 Apr 1930)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: I have no intention of casting a reflection on the Chairman, but it is a remarkable thing that Clauses involving such a wide departure of policy should have been decided by a casting vote of the Chairman. Hon. Members may have a different view, but I do not like to think that Clauses of this magnitude should be decided by what I will call unusual procedure on the part of the Chairman. I want...
