Orders of the Day — Finance Bill. (7 Jul 1937)

Major Frank Heilgers: I am delighted to see the Liberal party posing as the champions of agriculture. It is a long time since I found them in that position. Their principle that agricultural machinery should not be taxed would not benefit the farmer, because, though it may be true that the prices of agricultural machinery have risen recently, they are lower to-day than when tariffs were introduced. The hon. Member...

Agriculture [Money]. (29 Jun 1937)

Major Frank Heilgers: The hon. Member may be quite right, although I do not think he is, but may I quote what has happened in my own county? Under a Socialist Government wages fell from 30s. to 28s., and under the National Government they have gone up from 28s. to 32s. 6d.

Agriculture [Money]. (29 Jun 1937)

Major Frank Heilgers: Will the hon. Member deny that the wages of agricultural workers in this country to-day are higher than at any period except the period immediately after the War?

Agriculture [Money]. (29 Jun 1937)

Major Frank Heilgers: I did not refer to the pre-war period, and I entirely agree that wages were a perfect scandal. I was referring to the post-war period, and I say that wages to-day are higher than at any time since the immediate post-war period of 1919–20.

Oral Answers to Questions — Spain. (28 Jun 1937)

Major Frank Heilgers: Was not the British Consulate sacked before the arrival of General Franco, and His Majesty's representative therefore was not able to return?

Orders of the Day — Livestock Industry Bill.: Clause 17. — (Livestock markets by-laws.) (4 May 1937)

Major Frank Heilgers: I beg to move, in page 16, line 33, at the end, to insert: (4) When the Commission first decide that livestock market by-laws are desirable in relation to any premises generally or to any class of premises in any area, they shall forthwith serve a written notice of their decision (specifying the said area and the premises or class of premises to which it is proposed such by-laws shall relate...

Orders of the Day — Livestock Industry Bill.: Clause 23. — (Control of slaughtering in connection with experimental operation of central slaughter-houses.) (4 May 1937)

Major Frank Heilgers: I beg to move, in page 20, line 6, at the end, to insert: none of which shall he in an area the population of which over a radius of 10 miles from the central slaughter-house is less than two hundred and sixty thousand. This refers to the proposed central slaughter-houses. The Amendment arises out of words used by the Minister of Pensions in Committee. A discussion was taking place on the...

Orders of the Day — Livestock Industry Bill.: Clause 23. — (Control of slaughtering in connection with experimental operation of central slaughter-houses.) (4 May 1937)

Major Frank Heilgers: In view of what the Minister has said and the reasonable explanation he has given, I beg leave to withdraw the Amendment.

Orders of the Day — Livestock Industry Bill.: Clause 24. — (Matters for which provision may be made by slaughter-house schemes.) (4 May 1937)

Major Frank Heilgers: I beg to move, in page 20, line 33, at the end, to insert: Provided that no existing firm of importers of meat shall be the person or persons carrying on the central slaughter-house. I move this Amendment in order to ensure that in this experiment in central slaughtering there will be no control, direct or indirect, by the meat importing firms in the slaughter-houses. As the House knows,...

Orders of the Day — Livestock Industry Bill.: Clause 31. — (Service schemes.) (4 May 1937)

Major Frank Heilgers: I beg to move, in page 28, line 20, after "livestock," to insert: or the carrying on of the business of conducting sales by auction. This is merely to get the Minister to clarify the position. This Amendment appears to be necessary notwithstanding the new Clause on service schemes in order to make it clear that the body representing the auctioneers may request that a service scheme may be...

Orders of the Day — Livestock Industry Bill.: Clause 31. — (Service schemes.) (4 May 1937)

Major Frank Heilgers: In view of the Minister's words, I beg to ask leave to withdraw the Amendment.

Oral Answers to Questions — India.: Spain. (3 May 1937)

Major Frank Heilgers: Can my right hon. Friend say whether the old people are to be above any particular age?

Orders of the Day — Livestock Industry Bill.: Clause 21. — (Entry and inspection of market premises.) (3 May 1937)

Major Frank Heilgers: The hon. Member for Don Valley (Mr. T. Williams) said that the people on the spot would be the best people to do the work, and with that I agree, but I regret the omission of the county councils. A county council's, after all, a county parliament, it is the most influential body in the county, and in most cases—I may quote cinemas and rural housing—it has power to delegate its authority...

Orders of the Day — Clause 3. — (Livestock Advisory Committee.) (3 May 1937)

Major Frank Heilgers: My hon. Friend has pointed out that the Co-operative movement is already represented on the Livestock Advisory Committee. The cooperative people are producers; I believe they lose a great deal of money every year in farming. Surely, therefore, as the committee is at present constituted, they will have some voice in the decisions of the committee. The co-operative movement may be concerned...

Orders of the Day — Clause 3. — (Livestock Advisory Committee.) (3 May 1937)

Major Frank Heilgers: What is it?

Orders of the Day — New Clause. — (Special purposes for which service schemes may be made in connection with livestock markets orders and by-laws.) (3 May 1937)

Major Frank Heilgers: As far as I can see, the service scheme will be national and the Livestock Markets Order will be confined to an area. I do not see how the two will be reconciled. I should like to ask the Minister to explain how the two will work in together.

Orders of the Day — Clause 6. — (Regulations.) 10.2 p.m. (3 May 1937)

Major Frank Heilgers: I desire to support the Amendment. The Mover said that this country was not nearly so well informed about the qualities of beef as it ought to be, but I suggest to him that it knows what it wants, and it wants the small beasts. I am certain that it does not want big beasts like Devons.

Orders of the Day — Clause 6. — (Regulations.) 10.2 p.m. (3 May 1937)

Major Frank Heilgers: I can only speak of what I have seen at Smithfield, where at any rate the combination of North and South Devon is considerably larger than the Red-poll, and I can assure the hon. Member that the taste of the country as a whole lies far more in the direction of the Red-poll. I support the Amendment, however, because, after all, it does give a chance to the Minister to vary or revoke the...

Orders of the Day — Clause11. — (Power of Board of Trade to regulate importation of livestock and meat.) (3 May 1937)

Major Frank Heilgers: I would like to ask the Parliamentary Secretary one or two questions. In the first place, does this Amendment make any difference with regard to the declaration made by His Majesty's Government at Ottawa? The declaration then made was that the policy of His Majesty's Government in the United Kingdom in relation to meat production was first to secure the market for home production. In the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture.: Feeding-Stuffs (Prices). (26 Apr 1937)

Major Frank Heilgers: Is my right hon. Friend aware that those producers who maintain a steady production throughout usually come out on top?
