Orders of the Day — Ministry of Ways and Communications Bill.: Clause 10. — (Power As To Railway Wagons.) (7 Jul 1919)

Mr Marshall Stevens: I beg to second the Amendment. It is only a question of finding a Court of appeal from the Ministry. If you go to other countries where the railways are nationalised, you always find there a Court of appeal from the Government, and also where the railways are privately owned. In our case, for instance, there are the Railway and Canal Commissioners. In the United States they have the...

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Ways and Communications Bill.: Clause 11. — (Power to Discharge Capital Liabilities by Issue of Stock.) (7 Jul 1919)

Mr Marshall Stevens: Supplementing what my hon. Friend has just said, the very lucid statement of the right hon. Gentleman to-night has simplified the whole position. I agree almost entirely with what he said. Under this Bill practically all the wagons are to be purchased, and we are face to face with an expenditure in cash of £70,000,000 for these wagons. I say in cash, because we were promised upstairs that in...

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Ways and Communications Bill.: Clause 3. — (Power to Control Temporarily Railways, etc.) (2 Jul 1919)

Mr Marshall Stevens: I beg to move, in Sub-section (1, b), to leave out the words "take possession," and to insert instead thereof the words "undertake direction." This is an Amendment brought forward at the suggestion of the Leader of the House, that some better phrase should be found than "take possession" in regard to the undertaking which is provided for under this Clause. The words "take possession" are in...

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Ways and Communications Bill.: Clause 3. — (Power to Control Temporarily Railways, etc.) (2 Jul 1919)

Mr Marshall Stevens: I rise again because I think there is some misunderstanding. The suggestion for this Amendment came from the Leader of the House. He said he knew there was a misunderstanding in the country, and he would be very glad if any hon. Member could suggest words which would be more acceptable. The Some Secretary was not present at the time, but I would remind him that the Leader of the House said he...

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Ways and Communications Bill.: Clause 3. — (Power to Control Temporarily Railways, etc.) (2 Jul 1919)

Mr Marshall Stevens: I beg to second the Amendment. In doing so I want to supplement the remarks of the hon. Member for Liverpool. Let the House remember how this-Bill originated. As far as I can understand it came out of the resolution of the Trade Union Congress last year, namely: That in view of the national advantages arising from the working of the railway services under State control, this Congress again...

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Ways and Communications Bill.: Clause 3. — (Power to Control Temporarily Railways, etc.) (2 Jul 1919)

Mr Marshall Stevens: I want to give them credit for it from their point of view, and the more they applaud me the stronger is my case. We have been met from the outset by the Government in what appears to me, as a new Member and a business man, to be a deplorable way.

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Ways and Communications Bill.: Clause 3. — (Power to Control Temporarily Railways, etc.) (2 Jul 1919)

Mr Marshall Stevens: Promise after promise has been made to individual Members and groups on matters which should have been considered here. The last Amendment with which we have dealt was only proposed at the instigation of the Leader of the House, who suggested that such an Amendment should be made.

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Ways and Communications Bill.: Clause 3. — (Power to Control Temporarily Railways, etc.) (2 Jul 1919)

Mr Marshall Stevens: The seriousness of the matter is not, I feel sure, fully understood. An arrangement was come to yesterday. The Minister-designate said that one-half of the docks have gone from beneath his grasp. But the other half are in his possession, and he could use them all without intending in any shape or form to do anything more than he thinks is his duty, to the great disadvantage of the docks which...

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Ways and Communications Bill.: Clause 3. — (Power to Control Temporarily Railways, etc.) (2 Jul 1919)

Mr Marshall Stevens: I have, on the Paper, an Amendment, in Sub-section (2), to leave out the words "Subject as aforesaid." In a similar way to the last Amendment, this is a matter of very great importance to traders. In reply to what the Noble Lord (Major Earl Winterton) said, anything I am saying on this Bill is from the point of view of the traders and not of any particular interest. I will not go on with the...

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Ways and Communications Bill.: Clause 7. — (Claims against and by the Minister in Respect of Exercise of power) (2 Jul 1919)

Mr Marshall Stevens: I would like to ask whether it would be fair or correct to take the period before the War for undertakings that have not yet been taken possession of, because there are cases in which they are quite different undertakings today compared with what they were before the War. Some of the smaller railways, for instance, have doubled their mileage. I only want to put the matter to the...

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Ways and Communications Bill.: Clause 8. — (Power to Establish Transport Services.) (2 Jul 1919)

Mr Marshall Stevens: I think the House has now been made aware of the difficulties of the Committee upstairs upon this matter and all matters of expenditure. The Minister-designate has been in a position for the last nine months to consider this and the other questions which are before the Ministry, but with the exception of railway wagons where, as will be seen in the next Clause he can commit the country to...

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Ways and Communications Bill: New Clause — (Saving for Statutory Harbour, Dock, and Pier Authorities.) (1 Jul 1919)

Mr Marshall Stevens: The Port of London Authority is a statutory railway company.

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Ways and Communications Bill: New Clause — (Saving for Statutory Harbour, Dock, and Pier Authorities.) (1 Jul 1919)

Mr Marshall Stevens: I think I can remove the misunderstanding of my hon. Friend the Member for St. Helens on the question raised in regard to the Manchester Ship Canal. The Manchester Ship Canal is a port and harbour, the third in the Kingdom. It is also a statutory railway company. Hence the necessity for its being named in this Clause In the same way, I believe, the Port of London Authority— the first port...

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Ways and Communications Bill: New Clause. — (Right of Traders to Appeal to Railway and Canal Commission.) (1 Jul 1919)

Mr Marshall Stevens: The Home Secretary has given a statement which is contradictory. He said that this did not affect the interests referred to and later on he said that those interests had advantages which could be taken away from them by the Minister if this Bill proceeds, and they have no appeal unless they could appeal to the Railway and Canal Commission under this scheme.

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Ways and Communications Bill: Clause 2. — (Powers and Duties.) (1 Jul 1919)

Mr Marshall Stevens: I am in favour of tramways being included in the Bill. It is quite possible that the Government would care to approach the local authorities to agree with them to include municipal tramways in the Bill, as I think they ought to be included. In regard to the working of the tramways by municipal authorities, and those owned by a company, the difficulty in nearly every case is the failure of the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Munitions.: Nitrates. (1 May 1919)

Mr Marshall Stevens: Does the hon. Gentleman know that there are stores in this country filled with nitrate of soda, and that as a consequence large quantities of wool, for which the stores could be used, could be stored there if the nitrate was sold to the farmers?

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Ways and Communications [Money]. (1 Apr 1919)

Mr Marshall Stevens: The statement of the Leader of the House has relieved anxiety to a very great extent, and, as regards any further relief, I am quite prepared to leave the matter to the Committee upstairs. I am quite sure the House has no idea as to the extent of the responsibility which they are placing upon the Ministry. The Minister, with a stroke of the pen, might take the whole of the wool trade away...
