Orders of the Day — Sunday Performances (Temporary Regulation) Bill. (5 Oct 1931)

Reverend Roderick Kedward: That is entirely wrong.

Orders of the Day — Sunday Performances (Temporary Regulation) Bill. (5 Oct 1931)

Reverend Roderick Kedward: I hope that the House will reject this Bill, because I believe it to be the very worst Measure that has ever been introduced by this or any other Government. It makes legal in one place something that is illegal in another; what is a virtue in one place becomes a vice in another. I do not think that we have heard here to-night any arguments that would lead us to suppose that the Bill can have...

Orders of the Day — Sunday Performances (Temporary Regulation) Bill. (5 Oct 1931)

Reverend Roderick Kedward: I did not use that argument. It was used by the hon. Member for Cardiganshire (Mr. Morris).

Orders of the Day — National Economy Bill.: Clause 1. — (Power to make Orders Council for effecting certain economies.) (22 Sep 1931)

Reverend Roderick Kedward: The picture drawn by the hon. Member for Gorbals (Mr. Buchanan) may apply to the particular districts which he knows, but it certainly does not apply, at any rate, to the poorer districts in London. I have been connected with Poor Law Guardians and public assistance committees for 20 years, and I think I can claim at any rate to speak with some authority on that question; and I do not...

Orders of the Day — UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE (No. 3) BILL.: Clause 1. — (Provisions with respect to benefit in the case of special classes of persons.) (15 Jul 1931)

Reverend Roderick Kedward: They are not representing a movement. Surely they are representing the nation.

Orders of the Day — UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE (No. 3) BILL.: Clause 1. — (Provisions with respect to benefit in the case of special classes of persons.) (15 Jul 1931)

Reverend Roderick Kedward: Surely the hon. Member must know that the trade union members will have to represent other people, apart from trade unions?

Orders of the Day — Housing (Rural Authorities) Bill.: Clause 1. — (Special Government contributions to hosing expenses of certain rural district councils.) (14 Jul 1931)

Reverend Roderick Kedward: I am against any fixed rent being put into the Bill, but I was very perturbed when the Minister mentioned that no rural parish will get help unless the rates exceed 10s. I have discussed it with my friends, and there is not a single agricultural parish which will come in under such a regulation. In rural parishes where there is no sewage scheme or water supply or any amenities, the rate...

Orders of the Day — Housing (Rural Authorities) Bill.: Clause 2. — (Power of Minister of Health to assist rural district councils by acquiring land and erecting houses.) (14 Jul 1931)

Reverend Roderick Kedward: I am afraid that we are putting in too many of these restrictions. They are designed to penalise backward rural councils, which have no definite intention of proceeding with housing, and yet I fear it is the rural worker who really suffers. It is he who bears the penalty and not the rural authority, because he has to go on paying a high rent and living in a wretched little cottage. All the...

Orders of the Day — Housing (Rural Authorities) Bill.: Clause 2. — (Power of Minister of Health to assist rural district councils by acquiring land and erecting houses.) (14 Jul 1931)

Reverend Roderick Kedward: I beg to move, in page 3, line 7, after the word "county," to insert the words: or if, in view of the failure of a rural district council to remedy the housing needs of its district, he decides to exercise the powers conferred on him by Sections thirty-five and thirty-six of the aforesaid Act. I want to make sure that any defaulting authority will be dealt with by the Government—to be...

Orders of the Day — Housing (Rural Authorities) Bill.: Clause 2. — (Power of Minister of Health to assist rural district councils by acquiring land and erecting houses.) (14 Jul 1931)

Reverend Roderick Kedward: That assurance having been given by the hon. Lady, I beg to ask leave to withdraw my Amendment.

Orders of the Day — Housing (Rural Authorities) Bill.: Clause 3. — (Meaning of "agricultural parish.") (14 Jul 1931)

Reverend Roderick Kedward: I wish to raise a matter of vital and paramount importance on this Clause. I feel that the Minister should, at any rate, have given more consideration before putting into this Bill the definition of agricultural parish as it applies in the other Housing Acts. He knows exactly all the representations which have been made to him as to how unjust and unfair this definition is, cutting out as it...

Orders of the Day — Housing (Rural Authorities) Bill.: Clause 3. — (Meaning of "agricultural parish.") (14 Jul 1931)

Reverend Roderick Kedward: I am putting my argument against this definition of agricultural parishes as embodied in this Bill. I am sure that by the time we get these limiting definitions already in the Bill working, the only thing that can be truly said of this Measure is not that it will not apply to Northern Ireland but that, with all these restrictions, it will not apply to rural England, because this limiting...

Orders of the Day — Agricultural Marketing Bill.: Fourth Schedule. — (Products to which Act applies.) (13 Jul 1931)

Reverend Roderick Kedward: I should not have intervened, but for the last speech. It would be a great mistake to allow the Debate to close down on that note. The hon. and gallant Member says he is quite sure the Bill will not work. I am sure that if that was believed by the hon. Members above the Gangway we should not be here at this hour. It is because they are quite sure that it will work that we are having all this...

Orders of the Day — Agricultural Marketing Bill.: Fourth Schedule. — (Products to which Act applies.) (13 Jul 1931)

Reverend Roderick Kedward: Because you are not organised; because you are producing little quantities of butter of varying qualities and sending it in small quantities to various markets. If you had a tariff on butter to-morrow, you would not be able to compete and take large contracts without a Bill of this kind. I congratulate the Minister of Agriculture on producing the Bill. It is the greatest step forward this...

Orders of the Day — Agricultural Marketing Bill.: Fourth Schedule. — (Products to which Act applies.) (13 Jul 1931)

Reverend Roderick Kedward: I should be very sorry to widen the debate. I would only say that, unless you can bring into agricultural marketing some system, then there is no hope for British agriculture. They take stuff into the market now, and nobody knows how many buyers will be there and what stuff would be there. We do not know whether there will be fifteen or two hundred cattle or two buyers or twenty. You get...

Housing (Rural Authorities) [Expenses]. (7 Jul 1931)

Reverend Roderick Kedward: I support the Resolution, and I am sorry that hon. Members above the Gangway have gone out of their way to oppose it on the ground that the financial position of the country does not warrant the expenditure of an additional £2,000,000 on rural housing. Anybody acquainted with rural districts and who has taken the trouble to investigate the conditions will feel that the nation has not devoted...

Housing (Rural Authorities) [Expenses]. (7 Jul 1931)

Reverend Roderick Kedward: I am going to give chapter and verse, and I mention the matter because I want to raise this point. In the Bill for which finance is being provided by this Resolution, I understand that the definition of "agricultural parish" is to be the same as that in the Act of 1924. I sent to the Minister only three days ago communications on the subject of rural parishes which are cut out even from the...

Housing (Rural Authorities) [Expenses]. (7 Jul 1931)

Reverend Roderick Kedward: I said that there were many rural authorities who were too poor. I said that there were some who were unwilling. I did not make any charges of the kind which the hon. Member suggests.

Housing (Rural Authorities) [Expenses]. (7 Jul 1931)

Reverend Roderick Kedward: I wish to do no damage by mentioning names in this House but I will give the hon. Member the name of the council, the name of the man who was chairman for years and my correspondence with him. That man was agent for the lord of the manor and he did obstruct, because he did not want houses built in the locality. I will supply the hon. Member with the facts.
