Orders of the Day — Town and Country Planning Bill: Clause 45. — (Assessment of compensation in connection with acquisition of land for public purposes by reference to 1939 prices.) (6 Oct 1944)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: I have said that I quite appreciate the Prime Minister has given us a specific promise that the new Bill will be introduced before the appointed day.

Orders of the Day — Town and Country Planning Bill: Clause 45. — (Assessment of compensation in connection with acquisition of land for public purposes by reference to 1939 prices.) (6 Oct 1944)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: I am afraid the Prime Minister has missed my point. I regard the promise of the Prime Minister as a very binding thing, and I should not have questioned it. If he likes to put it more strongly and to say that he will put it in the Statute and that makes it stronger, it is for him to say that and not for me. Even so the appointed day is still in the future and unfixed. If this further Bill is...

Orders of the Day — Town and Country Planning Bill: Clause 45. — (Assessment of compensation in connection with acquisition of land for public purposes by reference to 1939 prices.) (6 Oct 1944)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: I am grateful to my hon. Friend for kindly giving way, but I think the Committee wants to have the matter clarified. I want to be quite clear that we mean the same thing. There are two courses the Government could adopt and yet bring about an agreed solution within the ambit of the Bill before it goes to another place. They could either postpone the Clauses now, which is what my hon. Friend...

Business of the House (5 Oct 1944)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: May I ask the Leader of the House whether he will tell us the Business for next week, and the hour at which we shall sit on Monday, if it is decided to sit on that day?

Business of the House (5 Oct 1944)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: I did not understand the answer the right hon. Gentleman gave to the hon. Member for Colchester (Mr. Lewis), who asked about to-morrow's Sitting and whether it would conclude at the usual hour. Is there any intention of extending the hour?

Business of the House (5 Oct 1944)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: May I ask the Prime Minister whether an opportunity will be given for a Debate on the Government's plans for the utilisation of capacity and labour released from war production?

Business of the House (4 Oct 1944)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: I desire to ask the Leader of the House whether he has any statement to make regarding the Business of the House, for this week and next week.

Business of the House (4 Oct 1944)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: The right hon. Gentleman will realise that it is rather exceptional to change the Business for Friday on Wednesday; but the time is exceptional, and no doubt Members will agree to this proposal. Will the Business which was to have been taken on Friday and which is now being postponed be taken next week?

Orders of the Day — War and International Situation (29 Sep 1944)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: We are nearing the end of this very important Debate. As I see it its importance is not due solely, or even mainly, to the comprehensive speech made by the Prime Minister in opening it yesterday, nor to the valuable contributions which have been made by right hon. and hon. Members on all sides of the House. Its importance lies in the fact that it marks the beginning of an entirely new chapter...

Business of the House (27 Sep 1944)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: I do not think the right hon. Gentleman's statement is quite clear. Assuming that we suspend the Sitting in accordance with what he says, does he mean that the House will sit for two hours longer, or that it will continue for two hours later, which will in fact mean that the House will sit for two hours less the period of the suspension of the Sitting?

Orders of the Day — INDIA (MISCELLANEOUS PROVISIONS) BILL [Lords] (27 Sep 1944)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: After listening to the remarks of the Secretary of State, I am bound to say that there does not appear to be any terrible significance in this Bill. I notice that in another place, where the Bill was debated, no opposition was put forward to it. I should like to ask the right hon. Gentleman whether in India there has been any substantial expression of opinion adverse in any way to any of the...

Orders of the Day — Housing (Temporary Accommodation) Bill (26 Sep 1944)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: Are some of these parts being manufactured in Scotland?

Orders of the Day — Housing (Scotland) Bill: Clause 3. — (Grants to Scottish Special Housing Association.) (26 Sep 1944)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: I had intended to raise the point which has been raised by my hon. Friend behind me on the Motion that the Clause should stand part of the Bill but as it has been raised it will probably save time if I say a few words about it now. I think it is evident that in some parts of Scotland houses have been built by the Scottish Special Housing Association which have not come up to standard. The...

Oral Answers to Questions — Paper Supplies: Allocation (2 Aug 1944)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: Will the right hon. Gentleman bear in mind that a very large proportion of the paper for books does not have to be imported, but is obtained from internal sources, and that this is a very important question?

Savings Bonds (New Issue) (1 Aug 1944)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: I should like to say that the House will be glad, and I am sure that the country will be glad, that we have been able to reverse the policy of the last war, in which the rate of interest went up all the time. In this case we have kept it down, and this issue is at half the rate which was in operation at the close of the last war.

Orders of the Day — National Fire Services Regulations (Indemnity) Bill (1 Aug 1944)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: Before the Home Secretary moves the Motion for the Second Reading of this Bill, I desire to submit a point of Order to you, Mr. Speaker. I think it will be for the advantage of the House if you are good enough to give some indication of what will be in Order in the discussions upon this Bill. This is a very unusual Bill, dealing with a very unusual subject, and many divergent views may be...

Orders of the Day — National Fire Services Regulations (Indemnity) Bill (1 Aug 1944)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: I am very glad, and I am sure the House equally is glad, that the Government decided that this irregularity could only be rectified by the introduction and passage through Parliament of an Indemnity Bill. The Bill we have before us, I feel, does achieve the purpose which the House, as well as the Government, have in view. The Home Secretary has quite frankly admitted the error of himself and...

Orders of the Day — National Fire Services Regulations (Indemnity) Bill (1 Aug 1944)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: I am quite ready to give way, but perhaps the hon. and gallant Gentleman will let me finish my sentence, which I am afraid will be rather a long one. I shall certainly give way to him if I have not satisfied him when I come to the end. I was endeavouring to say that what I understand this Bill to do is—for the purpose of these particular Regulations and not for any others—to extend the...

Orders of the Day — National Fire Services Regulations (Indemnity) Bill (1 Aug 1944)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: It would be very presumptuous on my part to interpret the meaning of words which the Home Secretary has feared to pronounce upon. Possibly my right hon. and learned Friend the Attorney-General may do so when he comes to reply. However, speaking as an ordinary person, I would say that we all know, I think, that the intention of these words was, "at a very early date after the framing of the...
