Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: New Milton Farm (Dispossession Notice) (15 Jul 1952)

Mr William Snadden: It would not be a good thing for the University of Edinburgh to have a research farm so far away from Edinburgh.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Forestry, Outer Hebrides (15 Jul 1952)

Mr William Snadden: The Forestry Commission are prepared to undertake planting in areas where soil and climatic conditions are suitable for timber production. Conditions generally in the Outer Hebrides are not favourable for the growth of trees, but the Commission have two small experimental plantations in Lewis and are carefully watching the results of this experiment.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Forestry, Outer Hebrides (15 Jul 1952)

Mr William Snadden: While sympathising with the hon. Gentleman on shelter belts, I am sure that he will appreciate that this is really an agricultural matter and that grants are available within the Hill Farming Act for that purpose.

Orders of the Day — Agriculture (Calf Subsidies) Bill (25 Jul 1952)

Mr William Snadden: Perhaps I may begin by answering the hon. Member for Derbyshire, South-East (Mr. Champion) on two points while they are in my mind. He asked about the right of appeal in regard to animals which are rejected. This has been thoroughly considered, and it has been decided that no appeal will be allowed. On the other hand, we are not imposing the stigma of a rejection mark on the calf, so that if...

Orders of the Day — Agriculture (Calf Subsidies) Bill (25 Jul 1952)

Mr William Snadden: We have taken the view that it is possible for the animal to improve, and, in order that we should not be too hard on the breeder, it is only fair that it should have another chance of receiving the subsidy. For that reason, we have decided that we will not stamp a rejection mark on the animal at the inspection, but on the other hand there will be no right of appeal. The hon. Gentleman also...

Orders of the Day — Agriculture (Calf Subsidies) Bill (25 Jul 1952)

Mr William Snadden: I should imagine that Wales would not be very different from Scotland, and we are well aware in Scotland of the autumn sales of suckled calves. We shall do our best to see that the calves are marked before they reach the sales in October and when they are in the neighbourhood of seven to eight months old. I am glad that, in the course of the debate, no one has mentioned that this is a small...

Orders of the Day — Agriculture (Calf Subsidies) Bill (25 Jul 1952)

Mr William Snadden: The raising of the end price would not produce more meat, in terms of livestock beef, because the conditions were precisely similar when we brought the previous calf subsidy to an end. We are now facing a very great fall in that livestock which we want so much, and my right hon. Friend has pointed out that, although the present home production of beef is expanding, it is not satisfactory. As...

Orders of the Day — Agriculture (Calf Subsidies) Bill (25 Jul 1952)

Mr William Snadden: I have a certain amount of sympathy with my hon. Friend on this question, and if I felt that an increase in the end price which could be contained within our economic, policy would be best, I would probably be in favour of it. But I do not believe that an increase in the end price today would produce the results we want. We want a quick answer and we can only get it if we turn out more...

Orders of the Day — Agriculture (Calf Subsidies) Bill (25 Jul 1952)

Mr William Snadden: Yes, I do, but I think the answer is that whatever our criticisms may have been, and I think they were more of method than of principle, I do not think the right hon. Gentleman opposite was quite fair to my right hon. Friend when he twitted him for his attitude when in Opposition. My recollection is that we did not divide on the Bill. We criticised the method, but we were not opposed to the...

Orders of the Day — Agriculture (Calf Subsidies) Bill (25 Jul 1952)

Mr William Snadden: I am merely repeating what I have said in this House for 10 years. It is something that is being considered at the present moment in our long-term policy, but I am unable to say from this Box today that it is in fact going to be done. The right hon. Member for Belper asked me one or two other questions. I think that I should perhaps pass over them because the right hon. Gentleman is no...

Orders of the Day — Agriculture (Calf Subsidies) Bill (25 Jul 1952)

Mr William Snadden: Well, there is a rather important question having a bearing upon long-term policy which I think I should answer even in the right hon. Gentleman's absence. He said that the Milk Marketing Board should be in the field again. I am very glad indeed, and I am sure my right hon. Friend is also very glad to have the right hon. Gentleman's sympathy in this matter, because no one is keener to see...

Orders of the Day — Agriculture (Calf Subsidies) Bill (25 Jul 1952)

Mr William Snadden: Yes, administration.

Orders of the Day — Agriculture (Calf Subsidies) Bill (25 Jul 1952)

Mr William Snadden: Ninety-thousand pounds at present.

Orders of the Day — Agriculture (Calf Subsidies) Bill (25 Jul 1952)

Mr William Snadden: No, on the assumption that we do make the change. We are saving £75,000 against the previous cost of administration of £350,000 in 1949–50. I now come to a question which has been raised very generally today, and I admit that it is a very tricky one. It is the question of on what animals the subsidies are to be paid. I think that we are all quite clear about the steers, but I will try to...

Orders of the Day — Agriculture (Calf Subsidies) Bill (25 Jul 1952)

Mr William Snadden: As the right hon. Gentleman knows, there are a great many things which have to be taken into account—efficiency, marketing boards, and many other things and we are carefully considering what our long-term policy will be. But we must make a move of this sort to bring us to the starting point if a long-term policy is to be put into effect, and I do not think there is much in the argument....

Orders of the Day — Housing (Scotland) Bill: Clause 3. — (Schemes for the Provision, Otherwise than by Local Authorities, of Housing Accommodation for the Agricultural Population.) (16 Oct 1952)

Mr William Snadden: There has been an apparent desire to get at the principle underlying this Clause, but I do not think the Committee will expect me to deal with the general question raised with regard to the tied cottage system. I propose to take the Committee back to the actual Amendments on the Order Paper. Later the principle may be discussed and perhaps at that stage I can answer the question regarding...

Orders of the Day — Housing (Scotland) Bill: Clause 3. — (Schemes for the Provision, Otherwise than by Local Authorities, of Housing Accommodation for the Agricultural Population.) (16 Oct 1952)

Mr William Snadden: The grieve is not necessarily a farm manager. The term is used in Scotland very often for a senior workman on a farm, and, if the hon. Gentleman does not know that, I confess I am rather surprised.

Orders of the Day — Housing (Scotland) Bill: Clause 3. — (Schemes for the Provision, Otherwise than by Local Authorities, of Housing Accommodation for the Agricultural Population.) (16 Oct 1952)

Mr William Snadden: I wonder if the right hon. Gentleman realises that the Labour Government legislation of 1946 actually increased the grant, and that grants are available today for tied houses, provided they are built to replace other houses, for all classes of agricultural workers?

Orders of the Day — Housing (Scotland) Bill: Clause 3. — (Schemes for the Provision, Otherwise than by Local Authorities, of Housing Accommodation for the Agricultural Population.) (16 Oct 1952)

Mr William Snadden: I am afraid that we cannot find it possible to accept this Amendment, which apparently seeks to confine the payment of grants to cases where, in the absence of other houses near at hand in the same ownership, there is no alternative to the building of a new house. One could say here that the yardstick which would be applied would be "is your house really necessary?" That is about what it...

Orders of the Day — Housing (Scotland) Bill: Clause 3. — (Schemes for the Provision, Otherwise than by Local Authorities, of Housing Accommodation for the Agricultural Population.) (16 Oct 1952)

Mr William Snadden: I had thought that there might have been more discussion on this Amendment, but I shall try not to keep the Committee long, although there are one or two points which should be explained. The Government have put down this Amendment in almost exactly similar terms to the one put down by right hon. and hon. Gentlemen opposite, the only difference being four weeks instead of three months. The...
