Iron and Steel Bill (Allocation of Time) (25 Nov 1948)

Mr Wesley Perrins: Before the hon. Gentleman sits down, may I say that I was most interested in his argument that it is a bad thing to mix politics and business? Would he care to give the House the advantage of his opinion on the appeal for funds made by Lord Woolton to manufacturers?

Orders of the Day — Gas Bill (16 Jun 1948)

Mr Wesley Perrins: First of all I should like to say that the hon. and gallant Member for New Forest and Christchurch (Colonel Crosthwaite-Eyre) is not really informed on the subject on which he has been speaking, for it is fairly obvious that if he read reliable newspapers he would be better informed. Apparently he does not even bother to read or understand his own Press. He said there has not been a strike...

Orders of the Day — Gas Bill (16 Jun 1948)

Mr Wesley Perrins: Very well, 20 years. I wonder if he recalls what happened in Manchester as recently as 1944. That is not so very long ago. The approach of the hon. and gallant Gentleman is the approach of many people to this problem, that because there has been no industrial trouble in the gas industry, therefore, it must be happy in its industrial relationship. The statement may appear correct, but the...

Orders of the Day — Gas Bill (16 Jun 1948)

Mr Wesley Perrins: If the right hon. Gentleman would develop this theme, I personally should be very greatly pleased. Can he explain, where there is a co-partnership scheme in existence, precisely on what terms the worker shares in co-partnership?

Oral Answers to Questions — Fuel and Power: Petrol Ration (Holidays) (29 Apr 1948)

Mr Wesley Perrins: asked the Minister of Fuel and Power if he is aware that many workers in Birmingham who have accepted the advice of the Government and have staggered their annual holiday, will suffer by reason of the fact that in many cases their annual holiday is due to begin before 1st June, the date chosen for the re-introduction of the basic petrol ration; and, in these circumstances, if he will agree...

Oral Answers to Questions — Coal Industry: Domestic Supplies (Sub-Tenants) (29 Apr 1948)

Mr Wesley Perrins: asked the Minister of Fuel and Power whether he will now allow a separate allowance of coal to subtenants.

Oral Answers to Questions — Coal Industry: Domestic Supplies (Sub-Tenants) (29 Apr 1948)

Mr Wesley Perrins: Is my right hon. Friend aware that his very satisfactory answer will be warmly received by those who will benefit from it, and that it will remove a serious cause of friction between main and sub-tenants? Will he undertake to convey their thanks to the miners for the efforts they have made to make this allowance possible?

Orders of the Day — Police Pensions Bill: New Clause. — (Protection of serving members.) (27 Feb 1948)

Mr Wesley Perrins: I welcome the new Clause. I raised the matter at some length in Committee, and we received an assurance by my right hon. Friend that any regulation he proposed would have the force of law. That assurance was sufficient for me, and I felt he had gone a good way to meet the point I raised. On reflection, and after reading the new Clause, it seems to me that my right hon. Friend listened with...

Orders of the Day — Police Pensions Bill: First Schedule. — (Repeals to come into Effect with Savings on making of Regulations and Provisions Conse- quential on those Repeals.) (27 Feb 1948)

Mr Wesley Perrins: Having already given my blessing to this Bill, I do not propose to delay it unduly, save to say that there is one matter which we must view with a measure of disquiet and which was referred to by the hon. Member for Westbury (Mr. Grimston). Under this Bill, future entrants to the Police Force will be put on a different scale so far as their contributions to superannuation schemes are...

Orders of the Day — RIVER BOARDS BILL [Lords] (25 Feb 1948)

Mr Wesley Perrins: The Minister has touched on every conceivable representation but one, namely, the interests of the people who use the river as drinking water. For example, Birmingham gets its water from Rhayader, 54 miles away. There are two small rivers, the Elan and Claerwen, which run into the Wye. Birmingham has no county interest to secure representation, although 1,200,000 people have their water from...

Orders of the Day — RIVER BOARDS BILL [Lords] (25 Feb 1948)

Mr Wesley Perrins: What I wish to know is whether Birmingham will be given representation on the river board in the area from which it takes its water.

Orders of the Day — Police Pensions Bill: Clause 1 — (Police pension regulations.) (20 Feb 1948)

Mr Wesley Perrins: I add my support to the plea that we should have as much as we can in the Bill itself rather than in regulations. Within my constituency I have a police estate—

Orders of the Day — Police Pensions Bill: Clause 1 — (Police pension regulations.) (20 Feb 1948)

Mr Wesley Perrins: No, Sir, I said a police estate. So long as we have a Government like the one we now have, we shall never have a police State in this country. I have been surprised at the number of personal letters that individual Members of the Police Forces have addressed to me. They are not the usual agitation type of letter. I could quote from a number of them. I will quote one sentence from one letter....

Orders of the Day — Police Pensions Bill: Clause 1 — (Police pension regulations.) (20 Feb 1948)

Mr Wesley Perrins: I want to focus my right hon. Friend's attention on two particular features. There are the pre-1918 cases for whom no provision was made. If my right hon. Friend by this Measure makes provision for them out of public funds he will also be saving on public funds. These pre-1918 widows have to live. It is a matter of concern to many of them that they have had to go to public assistance. What...

Orders of the Day — Gas Bill (10 Feb 1948)

Mr Wesley Perrins: I intervene primarily to correct an erroneous impression which may have been created by the hon. Member for Edgbaston (Sir P. Bennett) who, I regret to say, is not at the moment in his place. Those who heard his contribution would get the impression that Birmingham is opposed to this Measure because he said he dared not go back to the city without making that fact known. I represent one of...

Orders of the Day — Gas Bill (10 Feb 1948)

Mr Wesley Perrins: Then there is no need for me to complete what the hon. and gallant Member knows. The only point I am making is that there can be what is called in the case of parish a parish pump attitude and approach. I have often said that the same thing applies to a larger city. Except that the pump becomes a water tower, it is exactly the same approach. I have read this Bill and I feel that there is much...

Oral Answers to Questions — National Insurance: Women Contributors (2 Dec 1947)

Mr Wesley Perrins: asked the Minister of National Insurance the estimated number of women between the ages of 54–60 years now contributing to National Insurance, differentiating between spinsters, married women and widows.

Oral Answers to Questions — National Insurance: Women Contributors (2 Dec 1947)

Mr Wesley Perrins: Is my right hon. Friend aware that 200,000 of the women mentioned in the first part of the Question are still looking hopefully to him to grant their claims for a retiring pension at 55 years of age?

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Tobacco and Snuff (Pensioners) (30 Oct 1947)

Mr Wesley Perrins: asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is prepared to allow the same concession for the purchase of tobacco and snuff at reduced prices, to persons over 65 years of age, who are in receipt of superannuation pensions, or allowances not in excess of State Insurance pensions, but who are not in receipt of national health or old age pensions, and cannot therefore produce pension books.

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Tobacco and Snuff (Pensioners) (30 Oct 1947)

Mr Wesley Perrins: Is my right hon. Friend aware that there are many people, exempt classes we call them, who, because of the provisions of superannuation schemes, never contribute to National Health, but are just as deserving as any other pensioned classes?
