Captain Henry Scrymgeour-Wedderburn: Can the hon. Member inform the House of the number of people concerned?

Orders of the Day — Unemployment Assistance Act, 1934. (22 Jul 1936)

Captain Henry Scrymgeour-Wedderburn: The hon. Member for Gorbals (Mr. Buchanan) can speak on this subject with exceptional knowledge and as one who by his own exertions has done a great deal to assist unemployed men who are in difficulties over the amount of their benefit. Some of his remarks implied that he felt a doubt as to his usefulness in public life, but I am sure that hon. Members who are acquainted with his part of the...

Orders of the Day — Unemployment Assistance Act, 1934. (22 Jul 1936)

Captain Henry Scrymgeour-Wedderburn: I am obliged to the hon. Member for his explanation, and I take it that he does not dissent from my statement that his proposed scales are not unrelated to the existing level of wages. Let us consider the case of an unemployed man with a wife, and three children aged 13 years, 11 years, and nine years respectively. Under the hon. Members proposed scale, that family would receive 45s. a week....

Orders of the Day — Unemployment Assistance Act, 1934. (22 Jul 1936)

Captain Henry Scrymgeour-Wedderburn: I hope if there is time to refer to the rent rule a little later. Suppose that the man had five children, the eldest of whom was 14 years and the youngest eight years. Under the Board's Regulations he would be scaled at 47s. Suppose that if, when he were in full time employment, he would be reasonably likely to earn 48s. or 50s. He would then receive 47s. from the Board, so that his income...

Orders of the Day — Unemployment Assistance Act, 1934. (22 Jul 1936)

Captain Henry Scrymgeour-Wedderburn: I am obliged to the hon. Gentleman. But the Board have equally the power and the disposition to give a discretionary increase where it is needed. If there is another child, one 14 and another 12, I calculate that the Board would give 34s. 6d., against 32s. in Glasgow at present; if there is a third child, aged 10, I think the Board would give 38s. 6d., against 35s. in Glasgow; if there is a...

Orders of the Day — Unemployment Assistance Act, 1934. (22 Jul 1936)

Captain Henry Scrymgeour-Wedderburn: You might take a number of cases with a certain scale rate, or a number of houses in a certain area, or you might take a number of houses of a certain type. For example, it seems to me that it would be open to an advisory committee to recommend that in the case of slum houses of a certain type, that the inhabitants were put to considerable additional expense by reason of the bad quality of...

War and National Emergency. (25 Mar 1936)

Captain Henry Scrymgeour-Wedderburn: I beg to second the Amendment. If there had been no Amendment on the Paper, I should not have been unwilling to vote for the Resolution which has been moved by the hon. Gentleman the Member for East Rhondda (Mr. Mainwaring), but I am glad to support the Amendment because I think that, for the reasons which my hon. Friend has explained, its terms are preferable to those of the Motion. I think...

Captain Henry Scrymgeour-Wedderburn: Has my hon. and gallant Friend's attention been drawn to the new housing scheme for the burgh of Johnstone, and will be consider recommending to other local authorities the example of this burgh which has successfully addressed itself to this important subject?

Oral Answers to Questions — Aviation.: Pilots, Scotland (Medical Examination). (4 Mar 1936)

Captain Henry Scrymgeour-Wedderburn: asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air whether, in view of the large increase of commercial pilots in Scotland and the expense and inconvenience to which they are placed in presenting themselves for medical examination in London, he is prepared to authorise the appointment of a medical board for Scotland, either in Glasgow or Edinburgh, to include an approved resident doctor, which board...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland.: Small Holdings. (22 Jul 1935)

Captain Henry Scrymgeour-Wedderburn: 26. asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he can make any statement with regard to the report of the economic survey of small holdings outside the crofting counties undertaken by the Department of Agriculture for Scotland in the autumn of 1934 and referred to on page 66 of the Department's Report for that year?

Orders of the Day — Unemployment and Distressed Areas. (9 Jul 1935)

Captain Henry Scrymgeour-Wedderburn: My hon. Friend the Member for Stockton (Mr. Macmillan), towards the end of his speech, quoted from "Julius Caesar" the passage in which Mark Antony reads out Caesar's will to the citizens: "He bath left you all his walks,His private arbours, and new-planted orchards,On this side Tiber; he hath left them you,And to your heirs for ever; common pleasures,To walk abroad, and recreate yourselves."...

Orders of the Day — Housing (Scotland) Bill. (3 Jul 1935)

Captain Henry Scrymgeour-Wedderburn: My right hon. Friend the Member for Hillhead (Sir R. Horne) has spoken this afternoon on this subject with a depth of feeling which must command our respect, and has put forward the fears which are entertained by some people in Scotland, who are by no means confined to a single class in the community. I wish to do my best to avoid any repetition of arguments which have already been...

Orders of the Day — Housing (Scotland) Bill. (3 Jul 1935)

Captain Henry Scrymgeour-Wedderburn: Would it cause the arbiter to put a higher value on the property if he were instructed to carry out the valuation in the words suggested by my right hon. Friend?

Orders of the Day — Housing (Scotland) Bill. (3 Jul 1935)

Captain Henry Scrymgeour-Wedderburn: I cannot, of course, pursue that point, but I rather think the Amendment was more likely to have been rejected by the Chair on the ground that it would make no difference whatever, although if, by any conceivable stretch of the imagination, it could make a difference, it would involve a higher charge upon the State. Perhaps, however, it is unwise to pursue the reasons for the non-calling of...

Orders of the Day — Housing (Scotland) Bill.: New Clause. — (Increase of permitted number of persons.) (2 Jul 1935)

Captain Henry Scrymgeour-Wedderburn: When my hon. Friend the Under-Secretary was asked just now whether it would not be possible under the Bill for a widow and six children to inhabit a two-roomed house, he appeared to agree that this was so, but I do not think it is. Under the first Schedule, the greatest possible number would be a widow and four children under 10.

Orders of the Day — Housing (Scotland) Bill.: New Clause. — (Increase of permitted number of persons.) (2 Jul 1935)

Captain Henry Scrymgeour-Wedderburn: That is only half the number of children which might be possible under the new Clause of my right hon. Friend the Member for Hillhead (Sir R. Horne). The argument put forward in support of the new Clause is, that if you relax the standard of overcrowding, you will thereby enable the worst overcrowding conditions to be relieved more rapidly than would be the case under the existing provisions...

Orders of the Day — Housing (Scotland) Bill.: Clause 21. — (Extension of power of local authority to acquire houses and other buildings for housing purposes.) (2 Jul 1935)

Captain Henry Scrymgeour-Wedderburn: I want to thank my hon. Friend for the trouble which the Government have taken in drawing up this Amendment in fulfilment of the pledge which they gave. Although I do not suppose it could have been the intention of the Bill that what I feared might be done should be done, I think it is well to insert these words in order to remove certain apprehensions that existed.

Orders of the Day — Class Vi.: Department of Agriculture, Scotland. (28 Jun 1935)

Captain Henry Scrymgeour-Wedderburn: I have not had the advantage of being able to study the petition of the crofters in the Western Highlands on whose behalf my hon. Friend the Member for Inverness (Sir M. Macdonald) has just spoken. I have listened very carefully to the observations of my hon. Friend, and to those of the Secretary of State, and it seems to me that the picture of the undoubted grievance under which these men...

Orders of the Day — Class Vi.: Department of Agriculture, Scotland. (28 Jun 1935)
