Mr John Slater: I am sorry that the Noble Lady is not present to listen to the speech of the hon. Member for Merthyr Tydfil (Mr. S. Davies) and, of course, I do not propose to make any reply to him. My only desire to intervene in the Debate is because several speeches which have been made seem to indicate a view amongst hon. Members that the mechanisation of industry, which is growing more serious every day,...

Orders of the Day — Depressed Areas (Development and Improvement) Bill.: Clause 4. — (Supplementary provisions as to smallholdings and allotments.) (13 Dec 1934)

Mr John Slater: All of them, every one of them, and not only the engineers, but the figure covers the whole of the workers of the firm, which claims to have the highest pay roll of any works in Europe. The figure I mentioned was £289. I give the House the figures just as they were given at the particular discussion referred to. I have taken care to be exact in regard to the facts. Let me come to the...

Orders of the Day — Depressed Areas (Development and Improvement) Bill.: Clause 4. — (Supplementary provisions as to smallholdings and allotments.) (13 Dec 1934)

Mr John Slater: No, but the hon. Member for Bridgeton (Mr. Maxton) was very definite on this point. He criticised the right hon. Member for Carnarvon Boroughs (Mr. Lloyd George) and said that there was no opening anywhere. He instanced poultry farming, and also said that the new industries that are coming along employ few to-day compared with the number they employed in the past. I could answer that...

Orders of the Day — Depressed Areas (Development and Improvement) Bill. (3 Dec 1934)

Mr John Slater: Could the hon. and gallant Gentleman give the volume?

Orders of the Day — Consolidated Fund (Appropriation) Bill.: Trade and Commerce. (27 Jul 1934)

Mr John Slater: I would like the President of the Board of Trade to take note of the fact that many business men think that our Trade Agreements are a little too rigid, and that there is not that flexibility which will gradually lead to ultimate improvement unless we have power to exchange in volume and in value the same amount of goods. I commend that fact to the President of the Board of Trade and would...

Civil Estimates and Supplementary Estimate, 1934.: Mines Department of the Board of Trade. (17 Jul 1934)

Mr John Slater: I do not think that it is necessary for me to deal with all the points which have been raised by the hon. Member for Hamilton (Mr. D. Graham), as I think that the Secretary for Mines is able to deal with them quite satisfactorily. There are, however, two or three points to which I wish to refer. The hon. Member referred to the conditions in regard to machine mining being worse than was the...

Civil Estimates and Supplementary Estimate, 1934.: Mines Department of the Board of Trade. (17 Jul 1934)

Mr John Slater: Perhaps the hon. Member is right. We are not a bad lot, are we? At any rate, this is introducing a question which is not relative at all.

Civil Estimates and Supplementary Estimate, 1934.: Mines Department of the Board of Trade. (17 Jul 1934)

Mr John Slater: Obviously that depends upon facts which must be proved, but I accept the statement of the hon. Member. I am speaking generally on the question of the necessity of overtime being worked when emergency arises. If I thought that this practice was being abused I should be one of the first to condemn it. Coming back after six months away from the coal trade, and having bad plenty of time in which...
