Order of the Day.: Debate on the Address. (4 Nov 1930)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: That bears out the criticism which I have made. The Minister of Transport drew a comparison between the money spent on relief schemes by the present Government and the comparatively small sums of money spent by the late Conservative Administration. During the Conservative Administration it was found that the usefulness of these schemes had been exhausted, and, instead of anticipating the...

Order of the Day.: Debate on the Address. (4 Nov 1930)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: I can tell the hon. Member how I voted in regard to that particular case, and I do not think hon. Members of this House will doubt my statement.

Order of the Day.: Debate on the Address. (4 Nov 1930)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: I do not know that I object to mentioning the scheme. It does not reflect great credit on a corporation of which I was lately a member, but, when the aerodrome at Bristol was being constructed, the corporation of Bristol decided that they might spin out that work longer by employing manual labour and employing more men than if they employed machinery.

Order of the Day.: Debate on the Address. (4 Nov 1930)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: I do not see that that has any connection with the argument which I am bringing forward. Naturally, any party will take advantage of the bait which the Government hold out. That is one of the dangers of this use of public money for relief works. Not only is the money spent inefficiently and uneconomically, not only are the Government to-day paying for works which the municipalities would have...

Oral Answers to Questions — Land Registry. (10 Nov 1930)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: 69. asked the Attorney-General if he will state the average number of days required, during the past 12 months, from the date of the application for registration received by the Land Registry until the date upon which the final documents were delivered to the applicants?

Oral Answers to Questions — League of Nations.: New Buildings (Contracts). (9 Feb 1931)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: 22. asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether, in respect of the building of the new League of Nations palace, any British firms were invited to tender; whether any contracts have been allocated to British firms; and, if not, whether His Majesty's Government will use its influence to secure the allocation of some of the remaining contracts to British firms?

Oral Answers to Questions — League of Nations.: Contributions. (9 Feb 1931)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: 23. asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what is the basis on which the contributions of the members of the League of Nations to its expenses have been fixed?

Oral Answers to Questions — League of Nations.: Contributions. (9 Feb 1931)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: In view of the fact that the British Empire contributes more than one-fourth of the expense of the League of Nations, does not the right hon. Gentleman think that this basis should be revised more in our favour?

Oral Answers to Questions — Unemployment.: Exchange, Bristol. (16 Feb 1931)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that an improved Exchange is even more necessary now than it ever was?

UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE [MONEY] (No. 2). (16 Feb 1931)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: Has the hon. Member read the Memorandum submitted by the Treasury?

UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE [MONEY] (No. 2). (16 Feb 1931)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: His question will be answered then.

UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE [MONEY] (No. 2). (16 Feb 1931)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: Yes, a very large abuse.

Orders of the Day — Mining Industry (Welfare Fund) Bill. (17 Feb 1931)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: The Secretary for Mines would have saved himself a lot of unpleasantness and bother if he had been a little more frank in introducing the Bill. If he had told us that there was a lack of agreement between himself and the mineowners the debate would have taken a different line. He has said that this money is to carry out schemes which the Welfare Committee have in view. We have only his...

Orders of the Day — UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE (No. 2) BILL. (18 Feb 1931)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: I am pleased that one hon. Member opposite is pleased with the performance of his Government. The hon. Member's remarks may be summed up and epitomised in his last few sentences when he asked, what does the miner or industrialist in this country care for the 1,000,000,000 in Asia who have their consuming power reduced? That seems to typify the mental attitude of hon. Members opposite and of...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Labour and Health Buildings, Great Britain. (23 Feb 1931)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: The Committee, I think, enjoyed the right hon. Gentleman's ingenuous explanation of the increase in the Estimate. Apparently, he first knocked off £38,000, and now he more that doubles the amount he knocked off. That, certainly, impresses me as a way, first of all, of pleasing the House, and then of alarming the House. I want to ask, what is the basis on which the right hon. Gentleman is...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Labour and Health Buildings, Great Britain. (23 Feb 1931)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: It is the lack of policy which I wish to discuss.

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Labour and Health Buildings, Great Britain. (23 Feb 1931)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: Perhaps there is not very much policy to discuss, but, at any rate, what I am asking the right hon. Gentleman is, on what basis is he estimating the requirements of the Department as regards Employment Exchange accommodation? I was drawing attention to the fact that under the late Conservative administration less accommodation was necessary than is necessary under a Socialist Government, and...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Labour and Health Buildings, Great Britain. (23 Feb 1931)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: I wish to know on what basis we are to estimate future requirements in this respect. The right hon. Gentleman, when he first came into office, presumably estimated on a basis of about 1,000,000 unemployed, but that figure has now risen to 2,500,000. I wish to know whether that figure is to be taken as normal or whether the right hon. Gentleman thinks it likely that we may revert to the figure...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Labour and Health Buildings, Great Britain. (23 Feb 1931)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: I submit to your Ruling, Mr. Dunnico, and I merely ask the Minister to state whether any money is included in this expenditure in respect of the Bristol Exchange. I think the Committee must be surprised at this heavy addition to the Estimates, and I think we are entitled to know on what basis this Estimate has been framed in relation to the volume of unemployment.
