Civil Estimates, 1945: Family Allowances Bill (11 Jun 1945)

Friend will be in charge of this business after the General Election. [Hon. Members: "No."] That is the first quite candid expression of opinion we have had from the Opposition side of the House as to what is likely to be the result....

Civil Estimates, 1945: Family Allowances Bill (11 Jun 1945)

Colonel Sir Joseph Nall: I beg your pardon, Mr. Speaker, if I have transgressed the Rules of Order. I thought it desirable to say that I certainly shall not oppose this Measure. I realise it is right that it should be passed at the present time, in order, at least, that we should ascertain the result of it to see whether it is a principle which should remain permanently on the Statute Book.

Orders of the Day — Local Government (Boundary Commission) Bill: Clause 2. — (Power of commission to alter areas.) (5 Jun 1945)

Colonel Sir Joseph Nall: I think my hon. Friend, in moving an Amendment of this kind, is splitting hairs. What we are dealing with in this case is the question of whether two areas should be merged, whether it be that an urban or rural area absorbs a borough, or a borough absorbs an urban or rural area. The process is the same; the two are brought into one unit. To suggest that a town, however small, which for many...

Orders of the Day — Local Government (Boundary Commission) Bill: Clause 3. — (Exercise of powers of Commission.) (5 Jun 1945)

Orders of the Day — Local Government (Boundary Commission) Bill: Clause 3. — (Exercise of powers of Commission.) (5 Jun 1945)

Requisitioned Land and War Works Bill: Forestry Bill (30 May 1945)

Colonel Sir Joseph Nall: I was not a Member of the Committee dealing with this Bill, but I would like to say on Third Reading that I think the Bill in its present form is rather lacking in omitting to direct what kind of individuals are to compose the Commission. I think it is somewhat unfortunate that there is not a clearer distinction in this Bill as to the qualifications of the future members. I think, in...

Member for South Shields (Mr. Ede) expanded the information and talked about residential schools; and the hon. Member for Kilmarnock (Mr. Lindsay) went one better and talked about adult residential colleges. What are we...
