Orders of the Day — Depressed Areas (Development and Improvement) Bill. (3 Dec 1934)

Mr William McKeag: I propose to vote in support of this Bill and against the Amendment moved by the Opposition, and I do so purely on the principle that not only half a loaf but a mere slice is better than no bread. It will be idle for me, representing the capital city of the depressed County of Durham, to pretend for one moment that I am other than bitterly disappointed with the Government's proposals as...

Orders of the Day — Depressed Areas (Development and Improvement) Bill. (3 Dec 1934)

Mr William McKeag: I am prepared at once to accept the correction of my hon. Friend, but I submit that certain misconceptions which did arise from the very depressing speech of the Chancellor of the Exchequer have now been removed, at any rate in the opinion of some of us if not in the opinion of the hon. Member for Chester-le-Street. While I am grateful for the slice of bread that we are receiving in the form...

Orders of the Day — Depressed Areas (Development and Improvement) Bill. (3 Dec 1934)

Mr William McKeag: I am much obliged to the hon. Member, and I hope that not only will a careful note be taken of them but that some action will also follow. It is idle for the Chancellor of the Exchequer to say, as he did in his speech last week, that the incidence of rates has nothing to do with the setting up or the non-setting up of new industries in these areas. He will not find any of those who represent...

Orders of the Day — Depressed Areas (Development and Improvement) Bill. (3 Dec 1934)

Mr William McKeag: My hon. and gallant Friend will remember that, quite apart from the Bill, there has been no indication that these things are to be dealt with; they are not referred to at all in the speech of the Chancellor of the Exchequer or that of the Minister of Labour.

Orders of the Day — King's Speech.: Debate on the Address. (21 Nov 1934)

Mr William McKeag: I believe that the complaint on the Tyneside is that the right hon. Member does not pay attention to its needs because if he did he would be afraid of showing partiality for his own district.

Oral Answers to Questions — Coal Industry: Exports (Trade Agreements). (15 Nov 1934)

Mr William McKeag: 48. asked the President of the Board of Trade whether the trade agreement entered into with the French Government on the 27th June last is operating satisfactorily; and whether, in in particular, France has entirely carried out her undertaking to import the stipulated minimum quantities of coal from this country?

Oral Answers to Questions — Coal Industry: Exports (Trade Agreements). (15 Nov 1934)

Mr William McKeag: Is the hon. and gallant Gentleman aware that the French Press recently published a statement by the French Prime Minister in this regard and said that it was established that the imports of British coal showed a decrease of 64,000 tons and not an increase?

Oral Answers to Questions — Coal Industry: Exports (Trade Agreements). (15 Nov 1934)

Mr William McKeag: Am I to understand from that answer that the Government are not satisfied that there is the full importation of coal by France?

Oral Answers to Questions — Coal Industry.: Closed Pits. (13 Nov 1934)

Mr William McKeag: Can the hon. Gentleman indicate the special parts of Durham in which these collieries that have been closed down are situated?

Mr William McKeag: 65. asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether any representation has been made by the Government to the Cunard Company that the sister ship to the "Queen Mary" should be built on the Tyne; and, if not, whether it is proposed to make any such representation?

Oral Answers to Questions — Distressed Areas (Tyneside). (1 Nov 1934)

Mr William McKeag: May I ask whether, in consideration of the substantial financial assistance given by the State in connection with the building of these vessels, the Government did or did not reserve to themselves the right to make recommendations or stipulations as to where these vessels should be built.

High Court of Justice (King's Bench Division). (1 Nov 1934)

Mr William McKeag: Surely my hon. and learned Friend is not advocating that additional work should be thrown on the county court judges.

High Court of Justice (King's Bench Division). (1 Nov 1934)

Mr William McKeag: I do not wish it to be thought that I subscribe to all the views which have been expressed by the various hon. and learned Gentlemen who have spoken on the opposite side of the House, but I wish to take this opportunity of adding my voice to the statements already made by certain hon. Members that the present suggested appointment of two judges to the King's Bench Division to fill these...

High Court of Justice (King's Bench Division). (1 Nov 1934)

Mr William McKeag: So long ago as in November of 1932 I addressed a question to the learned Attorney-General in regard to the congestion of business at the Newcastle Assizes, and my question raised a storm of supplementary questions from all parts of the House, calling upon the Attorney-General to ensure that something should be done in the way of providing additional judges. His final answer was this: I shall...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport.: Police Vehicles (Liability for Damage). (3 Jul 1934)

Mr William McKeag: 35. asked the Home Secretary if his attention has been called to the recent action at Newcastle Assizes, when judgment for £400 and costs was given to the widow of Police Constable Potts against Police Inspector White, who was driving a police car on duty when it-was involved in an accident and Police Constable Potts received fatal injuries; whether he is aware that the judgment was given...

Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Air Force Display, Hendon (Accident). (3 Jul 1934)

Mr William McKeag: (by Private Notice) asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air if he is in a position to make a statement concerning the tragedy which occurred at the Air Pageant at Hendon on Saturday last, and whether in particular he can state what time elapsed between the actual crashing of the plane and the outbreak of fire; at what distance from the point of the crash the fire machines were situate, and...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Ministry of Health. (3 Jul 1934)

Mr William McKeag: Is there any legislative enactment requiring the local authorities to do these things?

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Ministry of Health. (3 Jul 1934)

Mr William McKeag: I agree with the hon. Member for Rusholme (Mr. Radford) that there is complete unanimity in all parts of the House as to the desirability of dealing adequately with the slums. Every right thinking person will support the Minister in a real crusade against slums. The slums of our great cities are a definite blot on the land, and speedy removal is very much to be desired. We should preserve a...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Ministry of Health. (3 Jul 1934)

Mr William McKeag: I am just explaining the position. If a man obtains a mortgage from a building society on the security of his property, whether the security remains or not he is still liable, in the amount which he borrowed, upon his personal property. In the case of most mortgages, whether with building societies or with private individuals, in addition to the security of the property mortgaged there is...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Ministry of Health. (3 Jul 1934)

Mr William McKeag: I do not care what the capital value of the house is. It is not possible for me to put a capital value on it. It does not affect the principle of the matter whether the capital value is £100, £200, or £400. If the Parliamentary Secretary had been in a few minutes earlier, he would have heard me instance a ease where the capital value was £400. I do not suggest that the capital value of...
