Orders of the Day — Queen's Speech: Debate on the Address (2 Dec 1954)

Mr William Snadden: The hon. Gentleman is slightly misinterpreting the point. I am not dealing with the point made by the Scottish N.F.U. If the hon. Member has in mind the question of the dealer, I would urge him to remember that if we removed the dealer from some of the remote markets the price would fall because local demand could not absorb the supply. In that case the Exchequer would pay more. The dealer...

Orders of the Day — PESTS BILL [Lords]: Clause 12. — (Spreading of Myxomatosis.) (15 Nov 1954)

Mr William Snadden: This Clause applies to Scotland only, where night shooting was prohibited by an interpretation of the Ground Game Act, 1880, by the Scottish courts, which took a different view from the English courts. This legislation is in line with the Scottish interpretation.

Clause 8. — (Restriction on Type of Trap in England and Wales.): Clause 10.(AMENDMENT OF AGRICUL- TURE (SCOTLAND) ACT, 1948, AS TO SPRING TRAPS.) (10 Nov 1954)

Mr William Snadden: The hon. Lady is quite right. As she has pointed out, the Secretary of State for Scotland took power, in 1948, to ban the gin trap for catching rabbits. We are now extending this power to cover all animals. Our intention is that the final step to ban the gin trap in Scotland shall be timed to coincide with its banning by my right hon. Friend the Minister of Agriculture. In this Clause we...

Clause 8. — (Restriction on Type of Trap in England and Wales.): Clause 10.(AMENDMENT OF AGRICUL- TURE (SCOTLAND) ACT, 1948, AS TO SPRING TRAPS.) (10 Nov 1954)

Mr William Snadden: Perhaps it will satisfy the hon. Lady if I say that the Secretary of State for Scotland is in receipt of the same advice as is the Minister of Agriculture. They set up a committee jointly, and it is quite impossible for the two Ministers to differ on a matter of this sort. I can assure her that we shall act jointly in this.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Myxomatosis (26 Oct 1954)

Mr William Snadden: Up to 25th October, there have been 86 confirmed outbreaks of this disease in all but three of the counties of Scotland. The counties so far free are Dunbarton, Roxburgh and Selkirk. My right hon. Friend has no evidence of any wild rabbits in Scotland having developed immunity to this disease, but he understands that in some parts of England a few rabbits have been found to have anti-bodies...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Fatstock Marketing (26 Oct 1954)

Mr William Snadden: My right hon. Friend is aware that there is some concern in the industry on this matter. The movement of stock is essential and, on balance, serves to reduce the overall Treasury liability provided there is no collusion. I can assure the right hon. Gentleman and the House that the Government are watching very closely the operation of fatstock markets and will not hesitate to take action where...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Fatstock Marketing (26 Oct 1954)

Mr William Snadden: I should like to make two points clear to the right hon. Gentleman. First, there is no possibility of an animal qualifying for the Government guarantee twice over because it is marked with certain marks. Secondly, where there is any evidence of collusion—that is to say, of people getting together in order to depress prices and thereby raise the Exchequer liability—we have machinery ready...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Wood-pulp Manufacture (26 Oct 1954)

Mr William Snadden: Home-grown softwood is suitable for the production of wood-pulp, and is already being used to a limited extent for this purpose. My right hon. Friend hopes that the interest being shown by industry in the development of the pulping of home-grown timber will lead to the establishment of new pulping plants. The Government are prepared to consider assistance to projects of this kind so far as...

Clause 18. — (Savings.) (29 Jun 1954)

Mr William Snadden: I beg to move, in page 14, line 3, to leave out: at the commencement of this Act, and to insert: on the twenty-ninth day of June, nineteen hundred and fifty-four. Perhaps at the same time I may deal with the next Amendment in page 14, line 7. These Amendments are necessary in order to preserve—

Clause 18. — (Savings.) (29 Jun 1954)

Mr William Snadden: I was in the course of moving it, Mr. Speaker.

Clause 18. — (Savings.) (29 Jun 1954)

Mr William Snadden: These two Amendments which I am moving, in page 14, lines 3 and 7, are on the same point, and, with the permission of the House, I should like to discuss them together. These Amendments are necessary in order to preserve the original intention of subsections (2) and (3), should this Bill by any chance not come into force before the date of de-control, as now appears possible. The intention of...

Clause 18. — (Savings.) (29 Jun 1954)

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Rabbit-Gassing Machine (Demonstration) (18 May 1954)

Mr William Snadden: Officials of my right hon. Friend's Department recently attended a commercially-sponsored demonstration of a power gassing machine. They have reported favourably on the machine. The Department has for some years recommended gassing as a cheap and efficient method of destroying rabbits, and in future it will draw attention to the availability of power machines, which are in some locations more...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Rabbit-Gassing Machine (Demonstration) (18 May 1954)

Mr William Snadden: I am afraid I cannot give a figure in regard to the cost of the experiment, but the cost of the actual machine is about £75—which might be considered to be rather high.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Crofters Commission Report (18 May 1954)

Mr William Snadden: My right hon. Friend is not in a position to make any further statement about the Report at present. The Highlands Advisory Panel will be considering it this week, and my right hon. Friend will consider the next steps to be taken when he has its views.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Crofters Commission Report (18 May 1954)
