Orders of the Day — Hill Farming Bill (18 Feb 1954)

Mr William Snadden: Oh, yes. I am not going over all the figures quoted by my right hon. Friend, but he did show that since the Housing Acts were brought in by this Government and came into opera- tion, there has been a very distinct advance in the number of applications for reconditioning grants.

Orders of the Day — Hill Farming Bill (18 Feb 1954)

Mr William Snadden: I can tell the hon. Gentleman that under the Housing Acts ofthe Labour Government, which carried the condition in relation to a contract of tenancy, the average number of applications in Scotland was 37 a year. They are now 1,186. That is one year after legislation introduced by this Government repealed the condition imposed by the Labour Government. While one must admit that may not be the...

Orders of the Day — Hill Farming Bill (18 Feb 1954)

Mr William Snadden: People who have passed the major part of their life in the industry—and I am one, for I have been farming for 30 years and have an interest in a fairly large hill farm—have some knowledge of this question. There is nowhere that I can think of where the service cottage is more necessary than in the high-up hill farming areas. I am confident that when this Bill reaches the Statute Book...

Orders of the Day — Hill Farming Bill (18 Feb 1954)

Mr William Snadden: That was dealt with in Committee by my hon. Friend. I think that by now everything has been said about the Bill that could be said. We believe that its provisions will be welcomed by the agricultural community, as were the provisions of the Housing Acts, and I am certain that advantage will be taken of them. I am sure that no one will benefit more than the worker will do, because of the...

Orders of the Day — Hill Farming Bill (10 Feb 1954)

Mr William Snadden: I think that everyone will agree with what the right hon. Member for Belper (Mr. G. Brown) said about the desire to give the maximum possible time to any farm worker who is leaving his job. That was in the minds of all of us when we considered what to do with regard to the 1952 Housing Act. One of the principal criticisms against the service cottage system has been one which the hon. Member...

Orders of the Day — Hill Farming Bill (10 Feb 1954)

Mr William Snadden: The interests concerned were quite in agreement that four weeks were reasonable.

Orders of the Day — Hill Farming Bill (10 Feb 1954)

Mr William Snadden: I have no recollection of the National Union of Agricultural Workers opposing it.

Orders of the Day — Hill Farming Bill (10 Feb 1954)

Mr William Snadden: Yes, I am talking about the 1952 Housing Act. We have maintained, and I think with some justification, that four weeks is a reasonable and suitable time to settle upon, so that a farm is not upset by an unduly long term of notice. The principle was agreed and carried in this House under the Housing Acts, and one could argue that in relation to hill farms the need is even greater than on the...

Orders of the Day — Hill Farming Bill (10 Feb 1954)

Mr William Snadden: As I was explaining, this period of four weeks was arrived at after considering what would be a reasonable period to give to a farm worker so that he would have a reasonable chance to find alternative work while, at the same time, not upsetting the proper running of a farm. That was the yardstick used when the 1952 Housing Act was under consideration, and there was a considerable measure of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Netting of Rabbits (Caldra System) (9 Feb 1954)

Mr William Snadden: Bad weather unfortunately prevented Sir Eric de la Rue from giving officials apractical demonstration of his method of netting rabbits. He did, however, show them how his equipment is used, and they have reported to my right hon. Friend that the Caldra method would be effective on suitable ground. My right hon. Friend is grateful to Sir Eric for his enterprise, and the Department of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Meat Marketing Board (9 Feb 1954)

Mr William Snadden: I would refer the hon. Member to paragraph 17 of the White Paper on Decontrol of Food and Marketing of Agricultural Produce. The Government's plan leaves scope for a producers' marketing board for meat.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Meat Marketing Board (9 Feb 1954)

Mr William Snadden: There is sometimes a little confusion on this point. It is for the producers to produce a scheme. It is not for the Government to take the first step. It is not up to the agricultural Ministers to encourage the production of marketing schemes.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Meat Marketing Board (9 Feb 1954)

Mr William Snadden: That is a separate question.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Lower Kilvaxter-Bornisketaig Road (9 Feb 1954)

Mr William Snadden: My right hon. Friend is aware of the condition of this road, and he is considering what steps can be taken to improve it.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Lower Kilvaxter-Bornisketaig Road (9 Feb 1954)

Mr William Snadden: We are giving sympathetic consideration to the proposal.

Orders of the Day — Hill Farming Bill (1 Feb 1954)

Mr William Snadden: I beg to move, "That the Bill be now read a Second time." The principal objects of this Bill are, first, to amend Section 10 of the Hill Farming Act, 1946, so as to permit grants to be made under that Act, as extended by the Livestock Rearing Act, 1951, for the erection, improvement or reconditioning of service cottages; and, second, to ensure that the consequences of a breach of the...

Orders of the Day — Hill Farming Bill (1 Feb 1954)

Mr William Snadden: If a worker is in a cottage under a contract of tenancy, nothing in the Bill will affect him so long as the contract of tenancy exists. Should a worker go, or die, and the cottage becomes vacant, the owner is entitled under the Bill to treat that cottage as a service cottage; but he must observe the conditions I have mentioned in regard to the one month's notice.

Orders of the Day — Hill Farming Bill (1 Feb 1954)

Mr William Snadden: He cannot do that so long as the existing tenancy is run under a contract of tenancy, because obviously that would be a breach of contract. Until that contract ceases, the conditions of the Bill will not apply to the tenant. Clause 2 deals with the registration of the conditions applying to cottages under Section 10 of the 1946 Act, and Clause 3 gives the usual short title and citation,...

Orders of the Day — Hill Farming Bill (1 Feb 1954)

Mr William Snadden: The answer would be that the cost of rebuilding a cottage on a hill farm away out on a glen is very much greater than elsewhere. Assistance under the Housing Acts for hill farming purposes would not cope with the existing position.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Wind-blown Timber (Clearance) (26 Jan 1954)

Mr William Snadden: As my right hon. Friend informed the hon. and learned Member for Aberdeen, North (Mr. Hector Hughes) on 20th October last, the need for the speedy clearance of the wind-blown timber is fully realised and everything possible is being done to this end. With permission, I shall circulate in the Official Report a full statement of the progress made, but the House may be interested to know that...
