Mr Henry Hynd: What about a higher chimney?
Mr Henry Hynd: Will the Minister be careful not to accept the principle suggested by his hon. and gallant Friend, that an officer representing the largest national section of that force should be in command? If he does we shall have a German in command of the troops in Europe.
Mr Henry Hynd: Is it the Government's policy to give wage increases of more than 2½ per cent. to those who are likely to cause trouble by strikes and to give increase of not more than 2½ per cent. to those who, by tradition or because of their helpless position, are not in a position to strike?
Mr Henry Hynd: Will the right hon. Gentleman take steps to see that any new constitution does not lead to control by Afrikanders who are flooding into the country?
Mr Henry Hynd: Jobs for the boys.
Mr Henry Hynd: I beg to give notice that on Monday, 7th May, I shall call attention to the difficulties which confront those buying, or wishing to buy, their own houses, and move a Resolution.
Mr Henry Hynd: asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what consideration has been given by Her Majesty's Government to the Report of the United Nations Economic and Social Council on Economic and Social Consequences of Disarmament; and what action is being taken along the lines suggested by this report to avoid unemployment in the armaments industries.
Mr Henry Hynd: Will the Government do all they can to publicise the findings of this Council in order to reassure people that unemployment will not necessarily follow disarmament? Does he agree that the sooner we divert the money, skill and energy expended on armaments to more useful channels the better it will be for everybody?
Mr Henry Hynd: asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what improvements in production and exports have resulted from the Government's policy of concessions to Surtax payers and the pay pause.
Mr Henry Hynd: I hope that the Chief Secretary's optimism will be fulfilled, although it does not seem to have a very sound basis. Will he take the opportunity of next Monday's Budget to withdraw the concessions promised to Surtax payers so that they will be able to take a fair share of any sacrifices which may be necessary to bring the country out of the financial mess into which the Government have got it?
Mr Henry Hynd: The question which I wish to raise on the Adjournment may not appear to be a very interesting or exciting one, but as it affects public health I am sure that the House will accord it a due degree of importance. Undulant fever in human beings is caused by milk from cows suffering from brucellosis. The problem has attracted a great deal of attention in public health circles. I find that there...
Mr Henry Hynd: That deals only with calves and not with the effects of the milk that the animals can still produce.
Mr Henry Hynd: When the hon. Member refers to medical officers and their powers, does he mean that they have powers under the Milk and Dairies (General) Regulations, 1959?
Mr Henry Hynd: (by Private Notice) asked the Minister of Power whether he would make a statement on the explosion which occurred at Hapton Colliery yesterday.
Mr Henry Hynd: I thank the Minister for his statement and expressions of sympathy, with which, I am sure, all my right hon. and hon. Friends will wish to be associated. I am glad to hear that a special inquiry will be held. Will the right hon. Gentleman do all he can to ensure that the causes of this accident are fully investigated, to try to avoid such tragedies in this dangerous occupation?
Mr Henry Hynd: Would it not be much more useful to reduce the rate of interest on mortgages?
Mr Henry Hynd: Is it not time that the Government had another look at this Act and re-examined the principle of giving huge subsidies to wealthy property owners?
Mr Henry Hynd: Had that statement anything to do with the General Election of 1959?
Mr Henry Hynd: Not married women.
Mr Henry Hynd: That does not include the married women.
