Unemployment. (12 Feb 1931)

Unemployment. (12 Feb 1931)

Mr Vernon Hartshorn: This is rather an important matter, and it is not easy to use figures.

Unemployment. (12 Feb 1931)

Mr Vernon Hartshorn: On those two items alone we have, in round figures, 155,000 persons employed; and I say in respect to them that there is no guesswork, there is no deception. We have not been gilding the lily. We tell you the basis upon which we make the calculation. We have counted the men, and we have assumed that for all those who are directly employed there is an equal number indirectly employed.

Unemployment. (12 Feb 1931)

Mr Vernon Hartshorn: I do not know whether the hon. Baronet was in when I was explaining—

Unemployment. (12 Feb 1931)

Mr Vernon Hartshorn: —the amount of trouble I have gone to in finding this out. I have explained that in respect of some schemes it is wide of the mark, but that I have satisfied myself, by taking £10,000,000 or £20,000,000 worth of schemes and testing them that it is a very close approximation to the actual. Let us take the Lewis Committee schemes. They are the schemes under Part I of the Development...

Unemployment. (12 Feb 1931)

Mr Vernon Hartshorn: There has never been any desire on our part to make this a party question. We have been anxious to co-operate and work with the other parties all through, but for some reason or other, after patting in many months of work, the whole thing was given up. I am anxious to get on with that work. I notice that there are eight or nine points in the Motion which has been moved. I am not going to deal...

Unemployment. (12 Feb 1931)

Mr Vernon Hartshorn: Six thousand.

Orders of the Day — Coal Mines Bill.: Clause 14. — (Temporary Amendment of 8 Edw. 7, c. 57, s. 3.) (4 Jun 1930)

Mr Vernon Hartshorn: Will the right hon. Gentleman tell the House in what way this spread-over is going to work?

Orders of the Day — Coal Mines Bill.: Clause 14. — (Temporary Amendment of 8 Edw. 7, c. 57, s. 3.) (4 Jun 1930)

Mr Vernon Hartshorn: How does the hon. Member arrive at that figure?

Orders of the Day — Coal Mines Bill.: Clause 14. — (Temporary Amendment of 8 Edw. 7, c. 57, s. 3.) (4 Jun 1930)

Mr Vernon Hartshorn: I have listened throughout the whole of this debate to what has been said on the reduction of costs which would result from the spread-over as compared with the application of a flat seven-and-a-half-hour day. I have not heard a word from any Member, either in this House or in another place—I have listened to the debates in both Houses—in support or in explanation of how there is going to...

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

Mr Vernon Hartshorn: I know that the right hon. Gentleman does not wish to misrepresent what I said. I was dealing with the quota question in Part I. I pointed out that the right hon. Gentleman, in the Second Reading Debate, put up four suggestions, one of which was that Part I should be limited in its operation, but that point has been met; and then, the Government having agreed to limit it in accordance with...

Orders of the Day — Coal Mines Bill.: Clause 2. — (Provisions of central scheme.) (11 Mar 1930)

Mr Vernon Hartshorn: It is very unfortunate that we have to discuss this matter without having before us the schemes which ultimately are to be produced under this Bill. Up to now we have simply had to go upon our imagination. We have had to make guesses, and we have assumed a set of conditions which may never come into existence, each Member assuming anything he cares to assume. The one general, underlying...

Orders of the Day — Coal Mines Bill.: Clause 1. — (Scheme regulating production, supply and sale of coal.) (27 Feb 1930)

Mr Vernon Hartshorn: I have been listening to this Debate during the greater part of the afternoon, and I must confess that most of what I have heard has come from the imagination of the speakers rather than from the Bill. It would be just as well if we tried to keep in mind exactly what are the provisions of the Bill. When the Second Reading Debate took place the right hon. Member for Carnarvon Boroughs (Mr....

Orders of the Day — Coal Mines Bill.: Clause 1. — (Scheme regulating production, supply and sale of coal.) (27 Feb 1930)

Mr Vernon Hartshorn: I am talking about the Liberal party's attitude to this Measure and, as far as their Amendments and their speeches go, all this talk about dear coal simply means cheap labour. Without any attempt to be emotional and simply looking the facts in the face, I say that the miners have had a pretty bad time, they are looking for something better and they cannot get even what they want to-day if the...

Orders of the Day — Coal Mines Bill.: New Clause. — (Constitution of Coal Mines Reorganisation Commission.) (13 Feb 1930)

Mr Vernon Hartshorn: The right hon. Gentleman has given a figure referring to a three months' stoppage in 1926. Is he actually referring to three months or seven months? I think it was a seven months' stoppage.
