Agriculture Act, 1937.: Land Fertility Scheme. (23 May 1940)

Mr William Snadden: I do not want to detain the House for more than a minute, but I understand that the Motion before us applies to Scotland. I would like to ask the Minister whether he has considered supplying synthetic manures, other than basic slag. No restriction should be placed at all in the way of agriculture or of any other industry when it comes to mobilising the resources of the country. Looking ahead,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Supply.: Wool. (17 Apr 1940)

Mr William Snadden: asked the Minister of Supply whether he is aware that the firm of Patons and Baldwins, Limited, has sent to shops in Haddington, which deal in wool, a notice stating they had received a circular from the wool control that it is not expected that there will be any necessity for further supplementary issues against work party orders during the summer months; that they have advised these shops...

Oral Answers to Questions — British Army.: Woollen Comforts. (19 Mar 1940)

Mr William Snadden: asked the Secretary of State for War how many instances have been brought to his notice of British soldiers in France being called on to buy woollen garments knitted by voluntary workers, and what action he has taken?

Orders of the Day — Agricultural Development Bill.: New Clause. — (Provision as to wages.) (18 Jul 1939)

Mr William Snadden: Where is that farm? I think the hon. Member is making a very misleading statement.

Orders of the Day — Agricultural Development Bill.: Clause 2. — (Rate of oats subsidy payments). (18 Jul 1939)

Mr William Snadden: That was because the wheat farmer was protected with his 45s. deficiency payment, and we were not. As long as you retain the deficiency payment on wheat, you must protect oats, or the oats farmer will go to the wall.

Orders of the Day — Agricultural Development Bill.: Clause 2. — (Rate of oats subsidy payments). (18 Jul 1939)

Mr William Snadden: My argument is that wheat was being protected by a deficiency payment of 45s., and naturally the wheat farmer coming to the market protected in that way, would take any price at all for his wheat. This, of course, brought down the price of oats. As we have no imports of oats, there is no reason for the collapse in oats prices, that I can think of, except that fact.

Orders of the Day — Agricultural Development Bill.: Clause 21. — (Fat sheep subsidy payments.) (18 Jul 1939)

Mr William Snadden: I venture to suggest that the hon. Member's remarks are rather misleading. Actually, the grading under the sheep scheme will be quite simple. There will be the light-weight sheep and the heavy-weight sheep, with a minimum and a maximum weight. All that will be done will be that the sheep will be marked according to the grade. It will be no trouble to the farmer, as far as I can see. I am more...

Orders of the Day — Agricultural Development Bill.: Clause 21. — (Fat sheep subsidy payments.) (18 Jul 1939)

Mr William Snadden: The object is to put a bottom into the sheep market. The sheep farmer will not make a penny more than he made before, but he will now know that he can farm properly, and that, if he meets with a relapse in prices, he will have something to sit down upon. He cannot make a profit out of the scheme.

Orders of the Day — Agricultural Development Bill.: Clause 32. — (Payments to Agricultural Mortgage Corporation.) (18 Jul 1939)

Mr William Snadden: I do not wish to take up the time of the House for more than a few minutes, particularly as I had an opportunity of speaking in the Second Reading Debate and in the Committee upstairs, but I should like to make one or two observations on the Bill before it goes to another place. I am afraid that we Scotsmen are sometimes not too lavish in our praise, but I think I can say that the Scottish...

Orders of the Day — Agricultural Development Bill. (15 Jun 1939)

Mr William Snadden: In rising to address the House, I feel sure that I shall receive that indulgence which is so generously accorded to new Members. There are many economic problems awaiting solution to-day, but it would be difficult, if not impossible, to find one more worthy of the attention of His Majesty's Government or the earnest consideration of this House than that of agricultural policy. I represent a...

Private Business.: Official Report (Division No. 84, Correction). (28 Apr 1939)

Mr William Snadden: On a point of Order, Mr. Speaker. May I draw your attention to the fact that whereas I voted in the Aye Lobby in the first Division last night, my name appears as having voted in both Lobbies? If this appears in the official list, may I ask that a correction be made?

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce.: Mutton and Lamb (Imports). (18 Apr 1939)

Mr William Snadden: asked the President of the Board of Trade whether the percentage reductions in supplies of Dominion and foreign mutton and lamb announced on 16th February last were intended to apply to the respective quotas or to the actual totals of these imports in the preceding year; and whether, in deciding upon these percent ages, he had taken account of the large increase in mutton and lamb imports...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce.: Mutton and Lamb (Imports). (18 Apr 1939)

Mr William Snadden: May I ask the right hon. Gentleman whether he is satisfied that these reductions which represent less than one-half of the increase on imports in the past two years are sufficient to influence the course of prices of home-killed mutton and lamb?

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland.: Water Supplies (Rural Areas). (6 Apr 1939)

Mr William Snadden: asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he is aware of the unsatisfactory and unhealthy conditions in regard to water supplies existing in the Frew area of Perthshire, where water is drawn from the River Forth; that certain farmers in this area have either been refused or are liable to have with-drawn certificates of registration under the Milk and Dairies (Scotland) Act, 1914,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland.: Water Supplies (Rural Areas). (6 Apr 1939)

Mr William Snadden: Is the hon. Gentleman aware that in this area the question of the water supply has been under consideration for five or six years but that nothing has been done about it; and will he make special inquiries into the matter?

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland.: Bracken. (28 Feb 1939)

Mr William Snadden: asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he is aware of the serious encroachment of bracken: on Scottish hill grazings and the consequent decline of stock-carrying capacity in these areas; and whether, in view of the ineffectiveness of the existing assistance offered owing to the steep and rough nature of much of the ground, he will consider measures of assistance in respect of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland.: Bracken. (28 Feb 1939)

Mr William Snadden: Will this matter be considered by the Minister of Agriculture in preparing his long-term policy for agriculture?

Oral Answers to Questions — National Service. (23 Feb 1939)

Mr William Snadden: asked the Minister of Labour why local Employment Exchanges have not been instructed as to where applications should be addressed by persons wishing to enrol in the special register detailed on page 46 of the National Service Guide; and to what address should persons residing in Pitlochry and district apply for enrolment?
