Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 17. — (Suspension of Initial Allowances.) (2 Jul 1951)

Mr William Snadden: I beg to second the Amendment. The Amendment was very ably proposed by my hon. Friend the Member for Thirsk and Malton (Mr. Turton). My basic objection to the abolition of these initial allowances springs from the fact that it will do exactly what the Chancellor intends it should do—it will discourage farmers from purchasing machines and plant at a time when the need to expand our own home...

Orders of the Day — Hydro-Electric Development (Scotland) Bill (29 Jan 1952)

Mr William Snadden: I beg to move, "That the Bill be now read a Second time." This is a short Bill. Its purpose is to increase from £100 million to £200 million the statutory limit on the amount of borrowed money which the North of Scotland Hydro-Electric Board may have outstanding at any time. The Board has already been authorised to borrow up to nearly £94 million of the permissible total of £100 million....

Orders of the Day — Hydro-Electric Development (Scotland) Bill (29 Jan 1952)

Mr William Snadden: It is not a fact that the Hydro-Electric Board have spent £94 million. That is the borrowing power. The Board have spent only £56 million.

Orders of the Day — Hydro-Electric Development (Scotland) Bill (29 Jan 1952)

Mr William Snadden: I think hon. Members will agree that we have had a very interesting debate on this rather complicated and technical subject of hydro-electricity.

Orders of the Day — Hydro-Electric Development (Scotland) Bill (29 Jan 1952)

Mr William Snadden: I beg pardon, Mr. Speaker. I should have asked the leave of the House. Many of the questions addressed to me are of a technical nature and relatively unskilled people could not deal with them effectively on the spot, but I will try to deal with a number of questions which have been put because I believe they are very pertinent and should be answered, if at all possible. In a way I feel that...

Orders of the Day — Hydro-Electric Development (Scotland) Bill (29 Jan 1952)

Mr William Snadden: In that case it was dollars which went down a drain but in the other case it was water coming through a tunnel. The hon. Member for Orkney and Shetland (Mr. Grimond), made a point which I have not heard before about taking oil by sea, which he said should be cheaper. I can only give the assurance that I shall have the suggestion put to the proper quarter. The answer to his question in regard...

Orders of the Day — Hydro-Electric Development (Scotland) Bill (29 Jan 1952)

Mr William Snadden: I would say that is so; but I should like to look into the question because it was raised by two other hon. Members and I think it an important one. I should like to look into it, and I should not like to commit myself to a more specific answer beyond what I have said. The hon. Member for the Western Isles (Mr. M. MacMillan), raised the question of supplies to remote areas, as did some...

Orders of the Day — Hydro-Electric Development (Scotland) Bill (29 Jan 1952)

Mr William Snadden: I follow the hon. Member's point. I had taken it up rather differently. There is the further point that where agricultural holdings are in areas where supplies are expensive, they should realise that there is provision for assistance under certain Acts of Parliament, such as the Hill Farming Act. In addition, just as coal can be charged against revenue so can electricity supplies. I do not...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Joint Under-Secretary (Appointment) (5 Feb 1952)

Mr William Snadden: The appointment of my hon. Friend, the Member for Fife, East (Mr. Henderson Stewart), as Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Scotland has already been announced.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Power Stations (Peat Firing) (5 Feb 1952)

Mr William Snadden: The investigations supervised by the Scottish Peat Committee under the chairmanship of Sir Edward Appleton are making good progress. Messrs. John Brown and Company, Clydebank, have completed an experimental peat-fired closed-cycle gas turbine under contract to the North of Scotland Hydro-Electric Board and are testing it. An open-cycle turbine will shortly be completed for the Ministry of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Power Stations (Peat Firing) (5 Feb 1952)

Mr William Snadden: Yes, Sir, I understand there is a survey going on, and the Department of Agriculture will shortly start experiments near Falkirk in order to test a method of removing water by pressure with a press designed by the Ministry of Fuel and Power.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Agricultural Workers (Call-up) (5 Feb 1952)

Mr William Snadden: My right hon. Friend is aware that the call-up of agricultural workers is causing concern to farmers and has received a telegram from the National Farmers' Union of Scotland urging that it should be ended. Similar representations have been received by my right hon. Friend the Minister of Labour and National Service from the National Farmers' Union of England and Wales. A reply will be given...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Agricultural Workers (Call-up) (5 Feb 1952)

Mr William Snadden: If the hon. Member will look at my reply, he will see that I said that the whole question is under consideration. I cannot add anything to what I have said.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Agricultural Workers (Call-up) (5 Feb 1952)

Mr William Snadden: I am aware of the report in the "Glasgow Herald," and will say in reply that machinery exists at the present time for the examination of all cases such as the hon. Member has mentioned; but the information in my possession is not such as to bring me to the conclusion that the scheme is working badly—in fact, it is working very well.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Service Voters (Registration) (5 Feb 1952)

Mr William Snadden: Any alteration in the method of securing registration as a Service voter would require legislation. My right hon. Friend has no information suggesting that this is necessary, but if the hon. Member will let him know what the difficulty is he will be glad to look into it.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Service Voters (Registration) (5 Feb 1952)

Mr William Snadden: My information is that the Service Departments do all they can to see that the members of the Forces are aware of the conditions. I have already indicated that if the hon. Gentleman will let us have particulars of cases which he has in mind, we will certainly look at them very carefully.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: North Ford Causeway (Survey) (5 Feb 1952)

Mr William Snadden: I regret that I am not in a position to add to the reply given by my right hon. Friend to the hon. Member on 4th December, 1951.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: North Ford Causeway (Survey) (5 Feb 1952)

Mr William Snadden: I can tell the hon. Gentleman that my right hon. Friend is very sympathetic towards this project, but the troops which would otherwise have been available for this project have had to be sent to other parts of the world. We are, however, in touch with the Secretary of State for War about it.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Fishing Industry (Grants) (5 Feb 1952)

Mr William Snadden: Grants and loans are available for the purchase of nets and gear by herring and inshore white fish catchers. White fish catchers in inshore and near and middle waters also receive a subsidy, the future of which will be reviewed before the end of March. Herring fishermen are assisted directly through the Herring Oil and Meal Scheme and indirectly through grants to the Herring Industry Board...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Fishing Industry (Grants) (5 Feb 1952)

Mr William Snadden: I will only say that we shall do our best.
