Mr Charles Dukes: 31. asked the Minister of Labour how many unemployed persons are registered at Warrington and how many of these have drawn 26 or more weeks' benefit during the present benefit year, giving the figures for the last week for which both sets are available or for which a reliable estimate can be made?

Oral Answers to Questions — Education.: Inspectors and Officers (Salaries). (24 Sep 1931)

Mr Charles Dukes: Is the right hon. Gentleman not aware that many of these rates of wages have been the subject of negotiation by existing joint machinery and are actually post-dated month after month? Is he aware that what is now proposed would be regarded by the men's representatives as undue interference with the existing machinery and certainly would be resisted?

Orders of the Day — National Economy Bill.: Clause 1. — (Power to make Orders Council for effecting certain economies.) (22 Sep 1931)

Mr Charles Dukes: My name is on the Paper in support of this Amendment. The case as it presents itself to my mind is that the Government, in an attempt to effect an economy, did not hesitate to break a contract, that all that followed was the result of the indignation felt by the men in the Navy because the Government had not hesitated to break their word, and that the men in the Navy felt justified in...

Orders of the Day — UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE (No. 3) BILL.: Clause 1. — (Provisions with respect to benefit in the case of special classes of persons.) (15 Jul 1931)

Mr Charles Dukes: I have one or two questions respecting paragraph (a) which I wish to put to the Minister. There is some apprehension that this paragraph will apply to men whose normal period of work is 6 days a week but who, during a long period of depression, have been working only two, three or four days a week. In what has already been said all the emphasis has been thrown on the £7 a week man; but there...

Orders of the Day — UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE (No. 3) BILL.: Clause 1. — (Provisions with respect to benefit in the case of special classes of persons.) (15 Jul 1931)

Mr Charles Dukes: May I put to the Minister the ease of an engineer working on payment by results, and earning, in three days, 35s. or 40s.—a married man with a dependant wife and two children? He would be entitled to 15s. for three days' unemployment, and would earn at work, say, 45s. Do I understand that that would be regarded as an abnormal case?

Orders of the Day — UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE (No. 3) BILL.: Clause 1. — (Provisions with respect to benefit in the case of special classes of persons.) (15 Jul 1931)

Mr Charles Dukes: A general appeal was made to the country and the employers' federation to put workpeople on short time rather than arrange that one section had regular employment while others were totally unemployed. For a period of years in the engineering industry, the textile machine shops and the textile industry, people have worked three days a week for two, three and four years. Is that regarded by the...

Orders of the Day — WORKMEN'S COMPENSATION (No. 2) BILL. ( 1 Jul 1930)

Orders of the Day — WORKMEN'S COMPENSATION (No. 2) BILL. ( 1 Jul 1930)

Oral Answers to Questions — Industrial Diseases.: Anthrax. (22 May 1930)

Mr Charles Dukes: 42. asked the Home Secretary if his attention has been directed to the following fatal cases of anthrax in the Liverpool, Runcorn and Warrington district: Walter Pritchard, 16, Ellesmere Street, Warrington, January, 1920; William Ronald Williamson, Runcorn, February, 1929; Thomas Burden, July, 1929; Ernest Hindley, Runcorn, March, 1930; Richard Andrews, 35, Fothergill Street, Warrington, 12th...

Orders of the Day — Private Business.: GLASGOW CORPORATION BILL (By Order). (26 Mar 1930)

Mr Charles Dukes: Although I welcome the assurances which have been given by the hon. Member for Newport (Mr. Walker), I should like to call his attention to the actual language of the contract to which he has referred. All along, I have felt that the assurances which the hon. Member has given are assurances which the Glasgow Corporation are prepared to implement. Therefore, it is more necessary that we should...

Orders of the Day — Private Business.: GLASGOW CORPORATION BILL (By Order). (26 Mar 1930)

Mr Charles Dukes: We are very much obliged for that statement of the hon. Member. My statement was made deliberately in order to draw that observation. We are very anxious to know the actual mind of the Corporation of Glasgow, because, when the development of these new processes is spoken of—and, as I gather from the hon. Member's speech, this appears to be the forerunner of further developments—we are...

Orders of the Day — Private Business.: GLASGOW CORPORATION BILL (By Order). (26 Mar 1930)

Mr Charles Dukes: I understand that this is going to be a displacement extending over a period of three years. This is a scheme which will take approximately three years to develop—[Interruption]—if it ever develops. The corporation employ, roughly speaking, a total of 24,000 men. There is an annual displacement of approximately 1,500 men, and I think we are entitled to know why, if the Corporation of...

Orders of the Day — Private Business.: GLASGOW CORPORATION BILL (By Order). (26 Mar 1930)

Mr Charles Dukes: That is exactly what I say. We welcome the assurances of the hon. Member for Newport, and I hope that we are safe in assuming that, as the ex-Chairman of the Gas Committee who carried through the negotiations leadin9 to the stage at which we find this Bill to-day, the guarantees that he has given here will present no difficulty to the Glasgow Corporation in carrying into effect at the coke...
