Orders of the Day — Registration of Still-Births (Scotland) Bill. (13 May 1938)

Major Sir Basil Neven-Spence: Those figures are based on the registration of stillbirths in England.

Orders of the Day — Registration of Still-Births (Scotland) Bill. (13 May 1938)

Major Sir Basil Neven-Spence: Yes, and what I want to point out is that, as a result of the registration of stillbirths in England, valuable information is already being collected. In England, the Act does not provide for ascertaining the cause and I hold that this Bill, if passed, will be much better than the English Act, because it is directed to the essential point which is that of trying to get some investigation into...

Orders of the Day — Registration of Still-Births (Scotland) Bill. (13 May 1938)

Orders of the Day — Registration of Still-Births (Scotland) Bill. (13 May 1938)

Orders of the Day — Registration of Still-Births (Scotland) Bill. (13 May 1938)

Major Sir Basil Neven-Spence: I do not think I said that there was anything about investigation. What we are aiming at is to get the causes registered, and after they are registered they must be investigated by somebody. The English experience has been—and I have this from the Ministry of Health—that registration has enabled maternal mortality rates to be expressed more accurately than had been the case hitherto, and...

Orders of the Day — Herring Industry Bill. (19 May 1938)

Major Sir Basil Neven-Spence: I think that my hon. Friend is ignoring the really vital feature of this question. The amount of herring cured in Russia last year was 1,000,000 barrels, and that is why there is no market there. We cannot get over that fact.

Orders of the Day — Herring Industry Bill. (19 May 1938)

Major Sir Basil Neven-Spence: I will not follow up the remarks of my lion, and gallant Friend the Member for Berwick and Haddington (Captain McEwen), except to endorse every word that he said about the hope that we all feel that the Admiralty will do everything possible to help the fishermen in the very difficult times through which they are going just now. I want to refer to the remark made earlier in the Debate by the...

Orders of the Day — Herring Industry Bill. (19 May 1938)

Major Sir Basil Neven-Spence: I have already referred to that problem. The fact that other countries are subsidising the industry and managing their exchanges makes it very difficult for us. Germany consumed 1,500,000 barrels of herring last year, and 1,000,000 barrels were cured in Germany. The remaining 500,000 were imported. We supplied about 356,000 barrels. I should like to know whether any arrangements have been...

Orders of the Day — Public Health (Coal Mine Refuse) Bill. (25 Nov 1938)

Major Sir Basil Neven-Spence: It is not often that I am able to see eye to eye with my hon. Friend the Member for the Western Isles (Mr. Malcolm MacMillan), but on this occasion I am very glad to associate myself with him in the tribute which he has paid to the sincerity and moderation of the speeches of the Mover and Seconder of the Motion for the Second Reading of this Bill, and, indeed, of everybody who has spoken from...

Ballot for Notices of Motions.: Inshore Fishermen. (31 Jan 1939)

Major Sir Basil Neven-Spence: I beg to give notice that, on Wednesday, 8th February, I shall call attention to Inshore Fishermen, and move a Resolution.

Inshore Fishermen. (8 Feb 1939)

Major Sir Basil Neven-Spence: I beg to move, That this House, recognising the great importance to the nation of the inshore fishing industry which supplies the population with an essential part of its food and the Royal and Merchant Navies with men whose unique character and experience are invaluable to the country both in peace and war, urges His Majesty's Government to take every practicable measure to preserve this...

Inshore Fishermen. (8 Feb 1939)

Major Sir Basil Neven-Spence: I have not seen that, but I am certain that this country will not be able to do without either its auxiliary craft or its inshore fishermen. I feel that the Admiralty ought really to reconsider their attitude over this. They should perhaps try to make more contacts than they do with the fishing industry and to get hold of these men. In 1910 they did away with the training batteries and the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Navy.: Young Fishermen (Training, Scotland). (21 Jun 1939)

Major Sir Basil Neven-Spence: asked the Postmaster-General what increase has taken place in the number of wireless receiving licences during the last 12 months; how many prosecutions for evasion of the licence fee have been undertaken during the same period; and with what result?

Agriculture and Food Production. (25 Jan 1940)

Major Sir Basil Neven-Spence: I rise to intervene in a Debate which was initiated by the Liberal party. If the present state of the second bench below the Gangway opposite is an indication of the interest felt by the Liberal party in agriculture, I am not very much impressed.
