Oral Answers to Questions — National War Effort.: Ordnance Factories (Miners). (4 Jun 1942)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: Is my right hon. Friend aware that there are a great number of coal face getters still employed in Royal Ordnance factories, and is it not extraordinary that, while the coal situation has been obviously getting worse for many months, he is only just now taking action to take those men away?

Oral Answers to Questions — National War Effort.: Ordnance Factories (Miners). (4 Jun 1942)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: I wish my right hon. Friend would remember that.

Orders of the Day — Local Authorities (Rate Revenue) (26 Mar 1942)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: I am very grateful, as is the whole House, I am sure, to the hon. Member for Faversham (Sir A. Maitland) for raising this very important matter which concerns so many people in this country. I shall not take more than a few minutes of the time of the House, because I know hon. Members are very anxious to hear a discussion on a subject which is to follow. I think the House will agree that the...

Oral Answers to Questions — National War Effort.: Part-Time Employment (Women). (26 Feb 1942)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: Is my right hon. Friend aware that there is a great number of women—I have had letters from several—who are only too anxious to undertake some form of war service but are precluded from doing so by the fact that manufacturers do not seem anxious to fit them in; and will he take more comprehensive and active steps to secure that this waste is prevented?

War Situation.: Ministerial Changes. (24 Feb 1942)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: I would like to echo the congratulations offered to my right hon. and learned Friend the Member for East Bristol (Sir S. Cripps) on his appointment to the important office he now holds. Great hopes are centred on him, and I am confident that he will live up to the expectations that he has aroused. I would like to apologise for intervening at this late hour, when everybody is anxious to get...

War Situation.: Ministerial Changes. (24 Feb 1942)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: I can only say that two wrongs do not make a right. A translation of reports which, if one knew the languages concerned, one could listen to over the wireless, is kept under lock and key in the Library of the House, and I think that is absurd. There is no reason why the public should not see it, let alone Members of Parliament. The other day, an American commentator, talking about the...

War Situation.: Ministerial Changes. (24 Feb 1942)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: I should not have offered them anything. I should have tried to keep them quiet as we did when we closed the Burma Road. I should like to know why we are always surprised by the enemy's strength, weapons and mobility. As far as I know, since the beginning of the war the enemy has continually surprised us. He has evolved new weapons and new tactics which our experts do not seem to have used at...

Oral Answers to Questions — Military Service.: EXIT PERMIT (Mr. ISRAEL SIEFF). (11 Dec 1941)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: Is my right hon. Friend aware that Mr. Sieff is stirring up anti-British feeling among his coreligionists in America, and that he is antagonising the Arabs by urging that they should be sent to other Arab countries in order to make room for more Jews in Palestine? Does not my right hon. Friend think that this sort of propaganda ought to stop?

Oral Answers to Questions — Military Service.: EXIT PERMIT (Mr. ISRAEL SIEFF). (11 Dec 1941)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: Has my right hon. Friend seen the report of a speech which Mr. Sieff made in New York, to which I drew his attention, urging that the Arabs should be displaced in order to make room for Jews, and ought not British subjects who are given trade permits to go to America be told to keep their mouths shut?

Oral Answers to Questions — Military Service.: EXIT PERMIT (Mr. ISRAEL SIEFF). (11 Dec 1941)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: I sent it to the Department.

Oral Answers to Questions — War Transport.: Railway Tarpaulin (War Risks Insurance). (10 Dec 1941)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of War Transport whether, in view of the unsatisfactory position arising under the Railway (Sheeting of Traffic) Order, whereby the responsibility for loss of perishable goods through railway companies not sheeting traffic falls upon the owner of the goods without a right to claim compensation under his War Risk Commodity Insurance policy, he...

Oral Answers to Questions — War Transport.: Railway Tarpaulin (War Risks Insurance). (10 Dec 1941)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: Is my right hon. and gallant Friend aware that traders are being compelled by the Government in certain conditions to use inadequately covered wagons, and that the Government have exempted the railway companies from all liability for damage caused thereby? Is not that a gross injustice to the traders, who are thus involved in considerable losses, and could not something be done to enable them...

Oral Answers to Questions — War Transport.: Railway Tarpaulin (War Risks Insurance). (10 Dec 1941)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: Does my right hon. and gallant Friend suggest that, as a result of the greater amount of tarpaulin available, there will be no loss? Does he shelter behind that hope? What I am asking is that if there is to be loss the Government should bear it and not the traders, who in this respect have to suffer through no fault of their own.

Mr Cyril Culverwell: asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will issue coupons to enable persons to replace articles of clothing which have been lost in laundries or otherwise through no fault of the owner?

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce.: Clothes Rationing. (25 Nov 1941)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: What is my right hon. Friend's definition of essential garments? Is he aware that clothes lost through enemy action are replaced or coupons are given to replace them, and surely he can do that in the case of clothing lost in laundries?

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce.: Questions to Ministers. (18 Nov 1941)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: I wish to raise a point of Order relating to Question 82 on the Order Paper. I have always understood that it was the duty of the War Office to order the type and quantity of equipment required and for the Ministry of Supply to provide it, and as the use of brass buttons involves great waste of time, labour and metal polish, I naturally put this Question to the Secretary of State for War and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce.: Questions to Ministers. (18 Nov 1941)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: On a further point of Order, Mr. Speaker, arising out of what you have just said. I originally put down this Question, quite reasonably as I thought, to the Secretary of State for War, but it has been transferred to the Ministry of Supply for a day on which it was most improbable that it would be reached. Therefore, I am asking you why it was transferred to the Ministry of Supply, and, when...
