Private Business.: Clause 21. — (Power to stop up Ade1phi Terrace.) (24 Jul 1933)

Mr Neville Smith-Carington: As one who had the honour of being a member of the committee which inquired very carefully into the whole of this question, I should like to take this opportunity of referring to some of the matters which were brought before us. During that inquiry, we took a large amount of evidence, from a good many points of view, on both artistic and practical questions, and among other points that came...

Orders of the Day — Hotels and Restaurants Bill. (31 Mar 1933)

Mr Neville Smith-Carington: It is with pleasure that I rise to say a few words in support of this Measure. It has been rather interesting that at various times during the debate people have placed very different values on the importance of the Bill. Earlier speakers seemed to exaggerate its importance, and later on we passed to a phase when others rather minimised it. I think that perhaps the hon. Member for Harrow (Sir...

Oral Answers to Questions — Naval and Military Pensions and Grants. (20 Feb 1933)

Mr Neville Smith-Carington: 35. asked the Minister of Pensions whether his attention has been drawn to the case of an ex-naval rating named Watts, who has failed to obtain a pension which he claimed on the ground that he was disabled as a result of the prominent part which he took in the attack on Zeebrugge in April, 1918; and whether he will make full inquiry into the case?

Oral Answers to Questions — India.: Horses (Export). (21 Dec 1932)

Mr Neville Smith-Carington: 51. asked the Minister of Agriculture how many horses were exported during the years 1930 and 1931, respectively, to the several European countries, and their declared values; and whether he can state how many were exported for slaughter?

Orders of the Day — Parliament Act (1911) Amendment Bill. (16 Dec 1932)

Mr Neville Smith-Carington: I am glad to have the opportunity of supporting a Bill which deals with one of the most important aspects of the constitutional question. I can quite understand the Amendment which has been moved, but I do not hold any sympathy with it. In the first place, I am one of those—I may be old-fashioned about it—who think that the present personnel of the Upper House is excellent, but I realise...

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Transport. ( 6 May 1932)

Mr Neville Smith-Carington: The Ministry of Transport Vote covers a very large diversity of subjects and a large number of them have already been touched upon, but I wish to confine my remarks to an aspect, which though it has been mentioned, has not very largely been dealt with up to now. I intervene on behalf of the small owners of motor omnibuses plying in the country districts. These men have been enterprising. They...

Orders of the Day — Supply. (28 Apr 1932)

Mr Neville Smith-Carington: As one of the representatives of the eastern counties, I am very glad to have an opportunity of intervening for a few moments in this Debate in order to put before the Minister the parlous condition of agriculture, particularly in that district. About a year ago I was talking to one of the best-known agriculturists of this generation, and he told me that in the eastern counties there was only...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce.: Trustee Securities (New South Wales Loans). (18 Feb 1932)

Mr Neville Smith-Carington: 77. asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether, in view of the fact that the New South Wales Government has till recently defaulted on its obligation to pay interest on certain of its stocks on the Treasury trustee list, he will now publish the fact in the London and Edinburgh Gazettes, and in such other manner as may give the public full information on the subject, as provided by...

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture.: Imported Milk. (15 Feb 1932)

Mr Neville Smith-Carington: 39. asked the Minister of Agriculture what steps have been taken to ensure that imported fresh milk offered for sale in the name of a British dealer or trader shall bear an indication of the country of origin?

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Ministry of Transport. (23 Jul 1931)

Mr Neville Smith-Carington: The Debate to-day has shown what a wide range of subjects the Ministry of Transport covers, but there is one aspect of it which has not been mentioned to-day, the question of horse traffic on the roads. I would like to say a word or two with regard to the views of the Shire Horse Society and of the National Horse Association, on behalf of whom I speak, about the restrictions in Oxford Street;...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce.: Iron and Steel Industry. (23 Jun 1931)

Mr Neville Smith-Carington: 16. asked the President of the Board of Trade how many blast furnaces were in operation in May, 1929, 1930, and 1931, respectively?

Orders of the Day — Education (School Attendance) Bill.: Clause 1. — (Raising of compulsory school age and provision of maintenance allowances.) (24 Nov 1930)

Mr Neville Smith-Carington: On behalf of the agricultural industry I should like to join with my hon. Friends who have spoken from this side of the Committee on this Amendment. One of the most unpopular features about this Bill, which is thoroughly unpopular everywhere and particularly in the country districts, is the compulsion. Compulsion, after all, means ignoring the wishes of the parents, and this Amendment, was...

Orders of the Day — Education (School Attendance) Bill.: Clause 1. — (Raising of compulsory school age and provision of maintenance allowances.) (24 Nov 1930)

Mr Neville Smith-Carington: I was arguing that we are justified in asking for the Amendment because it is essential that children should get an opportunity of working upon the land at an early age, and although the Government sometimes holds out the hope that they will have that training while they are at school they have not in fact secured it up to the present. However, I do not wish to take that point further,...

Orders of the Day — British Beer Bill. (21 Nov 1930)

Mr Neville Smith-Carington: I beg to move "That the Bill be now read a Second time." The Bill which I have the honour to introduce has for its purpose the stimulation of the use of British materials in the manufacture of beer. On reference to the Bill hon. Members will notice that I give a rather wide definition of beer. That definition includes such beverages as spruce and rum and so on, and I may say in regard to that...

Orders of the Day — British Beer Bill. (21 Nov 1930)

Mr Neville Smith-Carington: In view of what has been said, and the kindly offer of assistance which the Minister of Agriculture has given, I beg to ask leave to withdraw the Rill. The only question which I should like to ask and to make sure about is whether the Minister believes he has power without legislation to apply the national mark to beer, as this is a matter about which, I believe, there is some doubt in the...

Death Duties.: Death Duties on Objects of Art, &C. (30 Apr 1930)

Mr Neville Smith-Carington: I rise to support this Amendment which follows closely the lines of a Bill introduced by me during this Session. We may take it that Socialist extravagance has made it necessary to increase the total volume of taxation and that the Chancellor of the Exchequer, in his wisdom, has decided that he must have £2,750,000 from the brewers this year—rising afterwards, as I think it does, to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Navy.: National Health Insurance. (14 Apr 1930)

Mr Neville Smith-Carington: 78. asked the Minister of Health whether he has investigated the reasons for the increase in the number of claims for sickness and disablement benefit under the National Health Insurance Acts; and whether he can now make any statement upon the subject?

Orders of the Day — Shops (Hours of Employment) Bill. (21 Mar 1930)

Mr Neville Smith-Carington: I am afraid that I cannot follow the hon. Member for Central Sheffield (Mr. Hoffman) either in the historical disquisition or in the long voyages to other countries which he made during his interesting speech. We are all in general sympathy with the purpose of a Bill for making the conditions of a large class of the community more comfortable, but, when we come to consider this particular...

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture.: Heavy-Horse Societies (Grants). (22 Apr 1929)

Mr Neville Smith-Carington: 27. asked the Minister of Agriculture what increase, if any, has been made in the scale of heavy-horse grants since 1914; and how much those grants cost last year?
