Oral Answers to Questions — Fuel and Power: Kirkcaldy Corporation (Gas Order) (12 Dec 1949)

Mr William Gallacher: On a point of Order, Mr. Speaker. Might I say that the Fife County Council approached the hon. Member for East Fife (Mr. Stewart) and the hon.

Mr William Gallacher: In view of the very keen interest taken in this matter and the fact that the Minister says there is no time between now and Friday to discuss it, is it not possible, on a special matter of this kind, for the House to work longer hours, as we are advising other people to work longer hours?

Power Stations, London (Strike) (12 Dec 1949)

Mr William Gallacher: In view of the suddenness with which this has come upon us, could not the Minister tell us what the strike is about, or what attempts, if any, have been made to bring about an immediate settlement?

Orders of the Day — Gas Stockholders (Compensation) (12 Dec 1949)

Orders of the Day — Gas Stockholders (Compensation) (12 Dec 1949)

Mr William Gallacher: No, Sir. I would make it progressively less. I would suggest giving the owners of these undertakings the same allowance as they are now getting, for the rest of their natural lives, and for the allowance then to finish. That is how it should work. According to what we have been told, these companies have been giving service to the community, but they have been doing it at a profit. But, look...
