Orders of the Day — Supply.: Mines Department of the Board of Trade. (24 Jul 1935)

Mr Charles Milne: I am sure that I am expressing the feeling of all Scottish Members who represent mining constituencies when I offer my felicitations to the new head of the Mines Department. The hon. and gallant Member has long been known, well and favourably known, to hon. Members, and after listening to his speech to-day I am confident that the interests of the mining industry could not be in better hands....

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Commissioner for Special Areas (Scotland). ( 4 Jul 1935)

Mr Charles Milne: Is the hon. Member referring to plotholders outside the distressed areas?

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Commissioner for Special Areas (Scotland). ( 4 Jul 1935)

Mr Charles Milne: We have heard an account of the activities of Sir Arthur Rose, and it fills me with admiration and envy—with envy because I greatly wish that his jurisdiction had been extended to Fife. With unerring instinct, he has placed his finger upon the flaw in the Government scheme of land settlement. These unemployed men are furnished with plots for a double purpose: first to enable them to find...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Fishery Board for Scotland. ( 4 Jul 1935)

Mr Charles Milne: I rise to draw attention to a matter which has been engaging the active interest of my hon. and learned Friend the Member for Kirkcaldy (Mr. A. Russell). I am glad to seize this opportunity of seconding his efforts. The seaport town of Buckhaven, in Fife, whose harbour must be familiar to all those who are fond of the picturesque, used to be, not so very long ago, quite a busy little place,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland.: Unemployed Plotiiolders (Communal Huts). ( 3 Jul 1935)

Mr Charles Milne: 48. asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he is aware that at Crosshill and elsewhere in Fife, where the Department of Agriculture for Scotland have provided plots for cultivation by unemployed persons, the plot-holders are suffering serious inconvenience and hardship by reason of the lack of communal huts where they could store their tools and obtain shelter in bad weather; and...

Orders of the Day — Housing (Scotland) Bill. ( 3 Jul 1935)

Mr Charles Milne: This Bill has created more than one record. It occupied the attention of the Standing Committee for a period of 24 days-24 days of continuous clamour and strife. Yesterday it created another record. The Report stage was disposed of in the space of six hours. It was carried through in an atmosphere of the utmost peace and tranquillity. Do not let us be misled by to-day's proceedings. We know...

Orders of the Day — Housing (Scotland) Bill.: Clause 7. — (Information in respect to the permitted number, and certification of number and floor areas of rooms.) ( 2 Jul 1935)

Mr Charles Milne: When the information has been given once by the local authority, is there any obligation to give subsequent occupiers the information? The subsequent occupiers may be farm servants, who would be constantly changing, and they are not well conversant with the law.

Orders of the Day — Housing (Scotland) Bill.: Clause 7. — (Information in respect to the permitted number, and certification of number and floor areas of rooms.) ( 2 Jul 1935)

Mr Charles Milne: Is not that a weakness, because farm servants may be the occupiers, and they know nothing about the Act? No obligation is placed upon anybody to give the farm servant information in regard to a matter on which he may or may not be committing an offence.

Orders of the Day — Housing (Scotland) Bill.: Clause 57. — (Payments in respect of well-maintained houses.) ( 2 Jul 1935)

Mr Charles Milne: At an earlier stage to-night the Secretary of State justified one of his Amendments on the ground of what he termed the lack of precision which it is necessary to secure in these matters. That is my excuse for intervening now. This Clause confers on local authorities the discretion to order the payment of a grant in certain circumstances, and if an order for payment be made the amount is...

Orders of the Day — CRIMINAL LUNATICS (SCOTLAND) BILL [Lords]. ( 2 Jul 1935)

Mr Charles Milne: In order to make things quite clear, may I ask whether the Lord Advocate proposes to retain the power to detain in a criminal lunatic asylum a man after his sentence has expired?

CRIMINAL LUNATICS (SCOTLAND) BILL [Lords]. ( 6 Jun 1935)

Mr Charles Milne: I rise to support the Second Reading of this Bill. The need for a new asylum is urgent, but I want to take the strongest possible exception to Clause 4. This is the Clause which deals with the detention of criminal lunatics. When a man has been sentenced to a term of imprisonment he goes to prison, and, if he is in good health, he performs his allotted task, whatever that may be. He...

CRIMINAL LUNATICS (SCOTLAND) BILL [Lords]. ( 6 Jun 1935)

Mr Charles Milne: In these circumstances somebody might say: Surely, his relatives could apply for a writ of habeas corpus, or what corresponds to that in Scotland, a petition to the Court. If this Bill becomes law petitions to the Court are of no avail. The wisdom of Parliament will have handed over the man's destiny to two medical men and a Government Department. He has served his sentence, he has paid his...

Orders of the Day — Land Drainage (Scotland) Bill. (29 Mar 1935)

Mr Charles Milne: I wish to support the Second Reading of this Bill which Sir Arthur Rose has asked for in order to facilitate schemes of land drainage and reclamation now under consideration. I note that in the Civil Estimates for this year there has been set down a sum approaching £500,000 to meet the outlays and general expenses in connection with the work of the Commissioner in Scotland. I rejoice...

Orders of the Day — Land Drainage (Scotland) Bill. (29 Mar 1935)

Mr Charles Milne: I am not sure that I could say the same thing of his advisers, whoever they may be. When the original Act was passed, it was contemplated that £100,000 could be usefully spent on arterial drainage. The language of the memorandum, which I suppose has been framed by my right hon. Friend's advisers, is not encouraging. It tells us that one scheme is still being carried on, that in connection...

Orders of the Day — Land Drainage (Scotland) Bill. (29 Mar 1935)

Mr Charles Milne: When I used the expression "Scottish Office," I, of course, had not in mind any particular individuals. I regard the Scottish Office as an intellectual abstraction.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland.: Special Areas (Commissioner's Expenses). (27 Mar 1935)

Mr Charles Milne: 47. asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what sums he has made application for to the Treasury under sub-section 4 of Section 3 of the Special Areas (Development and Improvement) Act, 1934; and what sums have been issued by the Treasury in response to applications made by him under the said sub-section?

Orders of the Day — Housing (Scotland) Bill. (21 Feb 1935)

Mr Charles Milne: I rise to congratulate the Government on the introduction of this Bill. I am aware that in certain quarters it has been received with a chorus of disapproval, but in a sense I welcome the outcry because it is the best evidence that this is a thorough-going measure of reform. You cannot expect to carry through a drastic reform without treading on somebody's toes. The Bill bristles with points...

Orders of the Day — Housing (Scotland) Bill. (21 Feb 1935)

Mr Charles Milne: The Noble Lady misunderstands me. I was suggesting that the claim in the form advanced this afternoon was a reductio ad absurdum. I apprehend that it may well be, when this Bill becomes an Act, that the business of the funeral undertaker will be seriously prejudiced in overcrowded localities. Are we then to have the right hon. Gentleman coming down with a moving appeal for compensation? I...

Orders of the Day — Housing (Scotland) Bill. (21 Feb 1935)

Mr Charles Milne: I was giving instances where private prosecution survives. There is poaching. One hundred years ago an Act of Parliament was passed which empowered landowners to institute private prosecutions against persons found trespassing on their lands in pursuit of game. That Act is still in full force, and in practice the landowner employs his own solicitor. But private prosecution is altogether...

Orders of the Day — Educational Endowments (Scotland) Bill. (30 Nov 1934)

Mr Charles Milne: This Bill will give a new lease of life to the Educational Commission, and I suppose at present there is no more unpopular body in Scotland. But I think the Bill deserves support, because I believe the comparative failure of the Commissioners, their unpopularity and their lack of success is in large measure due to a defect in the Act of 1928, and this Bill is designed to remedy that effect....
