Orders of the Day — Salmon and Freshwater Fisheries (Protection) (Scotland) Bill (13 Dec 1950)

Mr William Snadden: Is it not a fact that one can only take proceedings by interdict and therefore no one would go to the expense of doing so? At the same time, drift netting has been regarded as illegal?

Clause 1. — (Extension of Class of Land for Improvement of Which Grants May Be Made Under the Principal Act.) (6 Feb 1951)

Mr William Snadden: I wish to add a few words in support of what the hon. Member for Orkney and Shetland (Mr. Grimond) said about the type of land which will benefit under this Bill. Probably the reason why he put his Amendment on the Order Paper was to clarify his mind as to the type of land or country which will benefit under this Bill. In the Minister's statement to this House last July, and again in the...

Clause 1. — (Extension of Class of Land for Improvement of Which Grants May Be Made Under the Principal Act.) (6 Feb 1951)

Mr William Snadden: This is perhaps the most important Clause in the Bill and I want to support what has been said about the possibility of varying the grants. In these schemes we have to pay out a great deal of money on extremely expensive items. I have found that roads are probably the most expensive items, and it is apparent that roads are more important than anything else. If roads are not decent we shall...

Clause 1. — (Extension of Class of Land for Improvement of Which Grants May Be Made Under the Principal Act.) (6 Feb 1951)

Mr William Snadden: Would the right hon. Gentleman answer my question about the size of holdings?

Clause 2. — (Extension of Period for Submission of Schemes Under Section 1 of the Principal Act.) (6 Feb 1951)

Mr William Snadden: I want to ask a question which has been put to me regarding the extension of the period which is laid down in Section 1 of the principal Act. Imagine that a farmer goes into a new farm and submits a scheme under the Hill Farming Act, 1946. That scheme is approved by the Department of Agriculture, but a little later further knowledge of the holding makes it clear that the scheme, which was...

Clause 2. — (Extension of Period for Submission of Schemes Under Section 1 of the Principal Act.) (6 Feb 1951)

Mr William Snadden: The example I gave was put to me from the south of Scotland. I have not had time to check it.

Clause 6. — (Extension of Periods for Payment of Subsidies in Respect of Hill Sheep and Cattle.) (6 Feb 1951)

Mr William Snadden: I beg to move, in page 5, line 10, at the end, to add: Provided that in any such hill cattle scheme the qualifying period in the year for which payment is to be made shall be not more than a continuous period of sixteen weeks between the fourteenth day of April and the sixteenth day of November in any year, commencing not later than the fifteenth day of June. We are trying to provide that the...

Clause 6. — (Extension of Periods for Payment of Subsidies in Respect of Hill Sheep and Cattle.) (6 Feb 1951)

Mr William Snadden: I said that I understood. I have not got the document here, but I think that I have got it in writing somewhere. I understand that the National Farmers' Union have put forward the necessity for a change in the period. They did not name 16 weeks.

Clause 6. — (Extension of Periods for Payment of Subsidies in Respect of Hill Sheep and Cattle.) (6 Feb 1951)

Mr William Snadden: if the hon. Gentleman had not come out at the end of his speech with a fairly good assurance that this matter is to be reconsidered, I should have been prepared to carry the Amendment to a Division. I cannot accept what I can only call his flimsy arguments. He mentioned the enterprise with which I am connected. It is true that in the wilds of Perthshire I am connected with an enterprise...

Clause 6. — (Extension of Periods for Payment of Subsidies in Respect of Hill Sheep and Cattle.) (6 Feb 1951)

Mr William Snadden: The right hon. Gentleman knows perfectly well that the money provided in the Bill covers great capital expenditure on roads and buildings. I am talking about the cattle scheme itself, which, at the moment, is based on the figure of 100,000 cows. If the Minister gives us the assurance that he will take this matter back and reconsider the question of the period—and I am not rigid about 16...

New Clause. — (Modification of Re- Quirement for Improvement Schemes.) (6 Feb 1951)

Mr William Snadden: I, too, wish to add a word in support of this new Clause. I think that a weakness of this type of legislation is its voluntary nature—there is no compulsion about it—and that the landowners with small financial resources are those less likely to take advantage of improvement schemes under the Bill. Yet they are generally the people who generally look after their places fairly well. We do...

Oral Answers to Questions — Food Supplies: Livestock (Marketing) (19 Feb 1951)

Mr William Snadden: Will the question of an autumn glut of British-produced meat be taken into account in the discussion? Surely it is an absurdity to have a glut in the middle of a meat shortage.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Wool Marketing Scheme (20 Feb 1951)

Mr William Snadden: In order to clear up, this point, is it not a fact that any such alteration would require the consent of Parliament, in which case the Secretary of State would have to come to the House with an amending scheme?

Orders of the Day — Salmon and Freshwater Fisheries (Protection) (Scotland) Bill: New Clause. — (Register of Purchase, Sale, &C.) (22 Feb 1951)

Mr William Snadden: Would the effect of this Clause be that hotel keepers who might be living in a black market area, would be compelled to keep registers?

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Potatoes and Sugar Beet (27 Feb 1951)

Mr William Snadden: Can the Minister give any indication whether the potato acreage for this year is to be kept up?

Clause 1. — (Calling Up of Reserves and Auxiliaries for Training and Instructor Duties.) (1 Mar 1951)

Mr William Snadden: Those of us who represent agricultural constituencies are puzzled about the effect that this will have on agricultural workers. I agree that not many will be affected under the Bill, and we all know that this is quite separate from the other Measure, but in the case of the key men—in Scotland we are very short of skilled workers such as shepherds and byre-men—who will decide whether a man...

Clause 1. — (Calling Up of Reserves and Auxiliaries for Training and Instructor Duties.) (1 Mar 1951)

Mr William Snadden: I take it that when the hon. Gentleman refers to the Minister of Agriculture, he means that the applications will go through the agents of the Minister, the county committees. I only want to clear up the question of who will decide whether or not a man is a key man. I do not want agricultural workers exempted as a class, but I am anxious that key men in remote areas—some Z reservists have...

Orders of the Day — Class Vi: Vote 21. Department of Agriculture for Scotland (Food Production Services) (15 Mar 1951)

Mr William Snadden: I do not want to detain the House more than a few minutes, but this Estimate is, of course, of just as much importance to Scotland as the one we have just discussed is to England and Wales. My hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Richmond (Sir T. Dugdale) has already made the main points, but I shall express one particular fear I have in regard to the removal of subsidies in the Scottish...
