Oral Answers to Questions — British Army.: Fresh Vegetables. (8 Oct 1940)

Mr Daniel Hopkin: Is the Minister aware that hundreds of tons of cabbages are being wasted in Lincolnshire and that there are thousands of troops round about who can well do with them?

Oral Answers to Questions — Food Supplies.: Pigs (Slaughter). (8 Nov 1939)

Mr Daniel Hopkin: asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster whether an owner of pigs can now slaughter them on his premises; whether he intends to issue regulations controlling such slaughter; and when such regulations will be ready?

Oral Answers to Questions — Food Supplies.: Rationing. (1 Nov 1939)

Mr Daniel Hopkin: asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster whether he will consider altering or supplementing Regulations 7 and 8 on ration books, in view of the possibility that the feeding of necessitous children, all communal feeding in elementary and secondary schools and juvenile instruction centres may have to be curtailed or stopped if parents of children so fed hand the whole of the meat vouchers...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport.: Evacuee Children (Cost). (27 Sep 1939)

Mr Daniel Hopkin: asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Education what will be the basis upon which the cost of the education of unofficial evacuee children who are in attendance at public elementary schools and secondary schools shall be met, as between the local education authorities of the evacuating and receiving areas; and has he prepared a general scheme, or is it proposed that this...

War Situation. (26 Sep 1939)

Mr Daniel Hopkin: My right hon. Friend the Member for Hillsborough (Mr. Alexander) deserves the thanks of the House for bringing this matter forward. There is chaos in the countryside, particularly in respect of meat. In some parts of the country public sales are still going on. In West Wales public sales have been prohibited, and there is in force a system of rationing the beasts from the farmers to the...

War Situation. (26 Sep 1939)

Mr Daniel Hopkin: Is the right hon. Gentleman prepared at this stage to say that the parish should not be of necessity the basis for the market?

Orders of the Day — Ways and Means.: Teachers Superannuation (War Service) Bill. (5 Sep 1939)

Mr Daniel Hopkin: What is the position of a teacher who has just left the training college, having completed his two years training last July? That teacher if appointed to a post would probably have been due to start, let us say, some time in September. If in the meantime as a member of the Territorial Army, he has been called up, he will not be in a posi- tion to start work in the school. Is such a teacher...

Orders of the Day — Civil Estimates, 1939.: Class Ii. (20 Jul 1939)

Mr Daniel Hopkin: I believe that the Committee will be entirely in agreement with the hon. Member who spoke from below the Gangway just now, when he said that the right hon. Gentleman has a very difficult task to perform. Everybody who has thought about this subject knows the tremendous difficulties that he has to face. Of that there can be no possible doubt. But it seems tome it is quite clear that the...

Orders of the Day — MILK INDUSTRY (No. 2) BILL.: Schedule. — (Payments in respect of quality milk.) (14 Jul 1939)

Mr Daniel Hopkin: I rise to intervene in this debate because if this Amendment were carried it would affect a very large number of farmers in my Division. I am sorry to have to come up against my hon. Friend the Member for Don Valley (Mr. T. Williams), because I have a very profound respect for his knowledge and his grasp of agriculture; but I know that my hon. Friend will understand me when I say that in the...

Orders of the Day — MILK INDUSTRY (No. 2) BILL.: Schedule. — (Payments in respect of quality milk.) (14 Jul 1939)

Mr Daniel Hopkin: I am not able to hold myself out as the expert that my right hon. Friend is. I can only give the House my own experience, and that is that when I go down to the countryside to visit the farms where I know they have attested herds, and I apply the one and only test that I know of, namely, drinking the milk—and that is the only test that my hon. Friend too can apply—I find that that milk is...

Orders of the Day — MILK INDUSTRY (No. 2) BILL.: Schedule. — (Payments in respect of quality milk.) (14 Jul 1939)

Mr Daniel Hopkin: And so have other people, but I am perfectly certain that the 20,000,000 gallons of milk sent from Carmarthenshire to London is good, clean, wholesome milk, and I have never heard either the Cow & Gate or United Dairies make any kind of grumble at all as regards the quality of milk that comes from my county. I think we can safely say that there is no grumbling, and for that reason, when I...

Orders of the Day — MILK INDUSTRY (No. 2) BILL.: Schedule. — (Payments in respect of quality milk.) (14 Jul 1939)

Mr Daniel Hopkin: If my hon. Friend had followed the argument that I put forward, he would have known that it was that this is the machinery by which the promise made through the 1937 Act is being carried out.

Orders of the Day — MILK INDUSTRY (No. 2) BILL.: Clause 2. — (Payments from Exchequer to boards in respect of milk sold at reduced prices.) (12 Jul 1939)

Mr Daniel Hopkin: Would the Minister be so kind as to tell the Committee where he stands with the board regarding his powers under Section 2 (l, b)? In introducing the Milk Bill the Minister said he was then engaged in conversations with the Milk Board but he was not at that time able to say exactly how he was to exercise his powers. This is the most important matter for the cheap milk schemes, because it is...

Orders of the Day — MILK INDUSTRY (No. 2) BILL.: Clause 3 — (Payments to be made from Exchequer to boards in respect of milk used in manufacturing butter and cheese.) (12 Jul 1939)

Mr Daniel Hopkin: May I ask the Committee to pay attention to the terms of Clause 3, because, in my submission, this Clause is one of the most important in the Bill. It proposes to make a very great and a vital change in the machinery of the Milk Marketing Board, and for that reason I would invite the attention of the Committee. For the reasons which I hope to put forward, I think that this Clause is a...

Orders of the Day — MILK INDUSTRY (No. 2) BILL.: Clause 3 — (Payments to be made from Exchequer to boards in respect of milk used in manufacturing butter and cheese.) (12 Jul 1939)

Mr Daniel Hopkin: If it is done purely on the ground of the amount, and as the Minister has himself said that the amount at stake is only £20,000, surely he will place on the other side the fact that it causes inconvenience and makes it impossible equitably to distribute the money when it is received.

Orders of the Day — MILK INDUSTRY (No. 2) BILL.: Clause 3 — (Payments to be made from Exchequer to boards in respect of milk used in manufacturing butter and cheese.) (12 Jul 1939)

Mr Daniel Hopkin: Will the right hon. and gallant Gentleman answer my question as to whom he proposes that this money should be at the end of the period? At the end of six months, it will be known how much is to be paid to the Milk Marketing Board. To whom will the money be paid? Is it to be put into the next pool price, and if so, how can that be equitable?

Orders of the Day — MILK INDUSTRY (No. 2) BILL.: Clause 4 — (Limitation of quantity of milk in respect of which Exchequer payments may be made.) (12 Jul 1939)

Mr Daniel Hopkin: I rise to ask for information. I am sorry that I cannot understand the Amendment. As the Clause stands the position seems to be this: The Government say to the farmers, "You produce milk which satisfies the liquid milk market, and 250,000,000 gallons beyond that which goes into manufacturing, and we will pay you a subsidy. But if by any chance you produce more than that you produce it at...

Orders of the Day — MILK INDUSTRY (No. 2) BILL.: Clause 7 — (Extension of functions of consumers' committees.) (12 Jul 1939)

Mr Daniel Hopkin: The Minister may direct one of these committees to do a certain piece of work, such as to ascertain the cost of distribution of milk. Is it possible for the committee to go into consultation with the Milk Marketing Board, and with the right hon. and gallant Gentleman himself, in order to get those costs down?

Orders of the Day — MILK INDUSTRY (No. 2) BILL.: Schedule. — (Payments in Respect of Quality Milk.) (12 Jul 1939)

Mr Daniel Hopkin: May I refer to one point which has been raised in the Debate, on the question of the 40 per cent. T.B. in herds? I mentioned in my speech on Second Reading that there is not a shadow of evidence of any kind that the herds to-day are infected with T.B. to anything like the extent of 40 per cent. I also pointed out that the figure of 40 per cent. arose from the Gowland Hopkins Report in which...

Orders of the Day — MILK INDUSTRY (No. 2) BILL.: Schedule. — (Payments in Respect of Quality Milk.) (12 Jul 1939)

Mr Daniel Hopkin: I thought that I might be able to get round it by replying to the statement which had previously been made and which I respectfully submit, is not correct.
