Orders of the Day — Contributory Pensions Bill (30 Jun 1925)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: I only want to appeal to the Minister to meet us on this matter. I quite understand the point raised by the Attorney-General, but I do suggest to the Minister this. Can he

Orders of the Day — Contributory Pensions Bill: Clause 1. — (Contributory Pensions for Widows, orphans and persons between the ages of 65 and 70.) (1 Jul 1925)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: I am quite sure that the Minister will not think me ungrateful, after the way he met my Amendment last night, if I still protest against certain injustices that remain in this first Clause of this Bill. I am quite sure that the Amendments he made last night for me he made because he thought—and I fully agree—that the proposals were a great improvement on the Bill as it originally stood. I...

Oral Answers to Questions — Housing, Earl Shilton. (2 Jul 1925)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: 44. asked the Minister of Health whether his attention has been drawn to the housing conditions existing in Earl Shilton, in Leicestershire; whether he is aware that many of the cottages are in imminent danger of falling down, that others, the upper rooms of which are open to the weather, are inhabited, and that in consequence of the shortage of houses many couples, who were recently married,...

Orders of the Day — Contributory Pensions Bill.: Clause 6. — (Special provisions as to additional allowances and widows' and orphans' pensions.) (2 Jul 1925)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: I beg to move, in page 4, line 28, after the word "payable", to insert the words "an orphan's pension shall be substituted for." This is the first of three Amendments the object of which is to raise the allowance given to the class of children with which this Clause deals from the scale allowed for them when their mothers are alive to the scale to which they would be entitled if they were...

Orders of the Day — Contributory Pensions Bill.: Clause 6. — (Special provisions as to additional allowances and widows' and orphans' pensions.) (2 Jul 1925)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: Is it not necessary for information to be given as to who is to receive the money: must not the Court authorising the alteration give notice?

Orders of the Day — Contributory Pensions Bill.: Clause 6. — (Special provisions as to additional allowances and widows' and orphans' pensions.) (2 Jul 1925)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: In view of the manner in which the Minister has met us here, I think it is only reasonable not to move my later Amendment.

Oral Answers to Questions — Palestine.: Prison Conditions. (6 Jul 1925)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: 30. asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether the Government of Palestine has appointed a committee to inquire into the conditions of the Acca prison; and, if so, whether the Report of this committee can be submitted to the House?

Oral Answers to Questions — Palestine.: Prison Conditions. (6 Jul 1925)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: 31 and 32. asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies (1), what is the average daily population of the central prison in Jerusalem and of the prison at Acca, what is the recognised accommodation of these buildings, what number of prisoners in these prisons are at work daily in rooms other than those in which they sleep, and are all healthy convicted prisoners employed; (2), what...

Orders of the Day — Supply. (6 Jul 1925)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: I do not propose to follow the very interesting remarks which fell from the hon. Member for Yarmouth (Sir F. Meyer) or the hon. and gallant Member for Central Hull (Lieut.-Commander Kenworthy) with regard to the film industry, but I do propose to advert to what I may call, without disrespect to them, the larger issues of the Debate, and in particular to the opening remarks of the President of...

Orders of the Day — Contributory Pensions Bill. (13 Jul 1925)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: I beg to move, in page 11, line 16, at the end, to insert a new Sub-section: (2) Any woman who at any time after the commencement of this Act has been an insured person for a period of one hundred and four weeks and has one hundred and four contributions to her credit shall, in the event of her marriage to an uninsured man, be deemed to be an insured person for the purposes of this Act, and...

Orders of the Day — Contributory Pensions Bill. (13 Jul 1925)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: In some ways the Minister has met us, but there are other points which, it seems to me, he has not taken fully into account, and one of them is that the woman herself has no rights in the matter. He has met us by allowing the man to become a voluntary contributor, but the man may not like to do that. When the right hon. Gentleman brings forward his proposal in the form of an Amendment, I...

Orders of the Day — Contributory Pensions Bill.: Clause 18. — (Widows and orphans pensions when husband or parent died before the commencement of Act.) (14 Jul 1925)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: I hope very much the Government will reconsider this point. It is rather difficult to follow the exact difference between what has been proposed and what the Government say is, as a matter of fact, in the Bill. If I understand the Attorney-General rightly, the difference between the two concerns only an exceedingly small number of people. It is those widows who, in the present circumstances,...

Orders of the Day — Contributory Pensions Bill.: Clause 18. — (Widows and orphans pensions when husband or parent died before the commencement of Act.) (14 Jul 1925)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: There was one remark that fell from the Attorney-General, of the significance of which I was not quite clear. In the begining of his speech he said that this expiration of six months would be from the date that the child was 14. [Interruption.] I understand that when he made that remark he was anticipating the Amendment that his right hon. Friend was going to move, and I shall make my remarks...

Orders of the Day — Contributory Pensions Bill.: Clause 18. — (Widows and orphans pensions when husband or parent died before the commencement of Act.) (14 Jul 1925)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: May I put the position to the Minister in this way: The insured person gets the benefit of the child allowance up to the age of 16 if the child remains at school, and the mother also gets the pension all her life. That is in the case of an insured person. This Clause deals with the case of the person who is not insured, the case of the husband already dead before the Bill comes into...

Orders of the Day — Contributory Pensions Bill.: Clause 18. — (Widows and orphans pensions when husband or parent died before the commencement of Act.) (14 Jul 1925)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: I do not wish to go over the ground that has been already traversed, but I want to ask the Minister to suppose the case of a widow who, when the Act comes into operation, has two children, one under 14 and the ether over 14. The child over 14 is still at school. I understand that because this woman has one child under 14 she comes under the provisions of Clause 18, and because the other child...

Orders of the Day — Contributory Pensions Bill.: Clause 21. — (Disqualifications.) (14 Jul 1925)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: I desire to support the Amendment on one further ground which has not been mentioned. What I fear very much will take place under this Sub-section is something like this. A woman will be suspected by the police of a certain course of life of which they disapprove. They will wait until she is convicted of some quite trumpery offence of a quite different character. The magistrate having in mind...

Orders of the Day — Contributory Pensions Bill.: Clause 21. — (Disqualifications.) (14 Jul 1925)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: Would the right hon. Gentleman explain exactly the steps that would be taken. A woman, according to some information given, is cohabiting. What are the actual steps before the removal of the pension? What will happen?

Oral Answers to Questions — British Army.: Leo Burke (Mental Examination). (15 Jul 1925)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: 75. asked the Home Secretary whether, in the case of Leo Burke, a boy of 16, who was recently committed to Borstal for three years by the London Sessions for stealing handbags from churches, a mental specialist was asked to examine the boy before conviction; and whether, in view of the fact that the boy has already been in a lunatic asylum, has had five previous convictions, has served two...

Orders of the Day — Contributory Pensions Bill. (15 Jul 1925)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: Just one word in addition to what has been said. The Minister told us that if this proviso were carried it would prevent him making any use of the Clause on the ground that the time that was taken up would be so long that he would fail to get the emergency measures that he proposed. That is not my reading of the Amendment. The Amendment especially provides in the last line but without...

Orders of the Day — Summary Jurisdiction (Separation and Maintenance) Bill.: New Clause. — (Power to apportion furniture.) (17 Jul 1925)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: The hon. Gentleman the Under-Secretary said those who supported this Amendment on the previous occasion withdrew it because of its controversial character and he rather indicated that we had a full Debate on the question. The actual facts were that we had I think 20 minutes in which to deal with the Summary Jurisdiction Bill and the Guardianship of Infants Bill, and it was pointed out if...
