Orders of the Day — Housing (7 Jun 1945)

Mr Robert Tasker: May I remind the hon. Member that he is not the only Member of this House who is a member of the L.C.C.? Does he suggest that under a Labour majority the L.C.C. built more houses than we did in Becontree and Downham? Does he seriously suggest that?

Business of the House (Supply) (6 Jun 1945)

Mr Robert Tasker: Did the hon. Gentleman and his party vote against increasing the pay of Members?

Orders of the Day — Housing (Temporary Accommodation) Bill (6 Jun 1945)

Mr Robert Tasker: It would be nothing unusual if, while this Bill is proceeding in another place, the Parliamentary Secretary could see whether he could make a more real approach to this problem. There is an air of unreality about it. Neither this Minister nor any other Minister nor a Parliament can pledge another Minister or Parliament ten years hence. Another Parliament might say, "It is perfectly true that...

Orders of the Day — Housing (Temporary Accommodation) Bill (5 Jun 1945)

Mr Robert Tasker: A suggestion was made by an hon. Member opposite that permanent foundations should be laid down for temporary houses. I hope that will not be done. Let me tell him from many years of building experience that that would be wasting money. The Minister has been challenged because he does not include the Royal parks. The reason is that in London there are more than 400 squares and open spaces. In...

Housing (23 Mar 1945)

Mr Robert Tasker: Would he be subordinate to the other seven Ministers?

Housing (23 Mar 1945)

Mr Robert Tasker: Will my hon. Friend allow me to intervene? I know the difficulties of dealing with housing, but how do we get over the difficulty of the transfer of authority on labour, transport and supply to this Minister?

Orders of the Day — Housing (22 Mar 1945)

Mr Robert Tasker: Could the Minister say anything about houses from Canada?

British Army (Discharge Procedure) (16 Mar 1945)

Mr Robert Tasker: I want to make a suggestion to the Financial Secretary. At the present moment there is a difference between dealing with a casualty in the Army and a civilian. The civilian gets his post-war credit and the soldier gets what is termed "entitlement." If that could be notified to him in writing that it would take the place of post-war credit it would give him much satisfaction. In regard to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Domestic Coal Supplies (23 Jan 1945)

Mr Robert Tasker: asked the Minister of Fuel and Power whether he is aware that great hardship is being experienced by poor people due to the shortage of coal; and if he is considering obtaining the release of men to act as loaders and carmen to enable suppliers to meet the demand of customers and confer with the Minister of Labour to that end.

Oral Answers to Questions — Domestic Coal Supplies (23 Jan 1945)

Mr Robert Tasker: May I thank the right hon. and gallant Gentleman for his personal visit to my constituency and for his endeavours to mitigate the hardships which have been inflicted upon people there? May I also express the hope that he will be unceasing in his efforts to the same end?

Orders of the Day — Debate on the Address: Housing (7 Dec 1944)

Mr Robert Tasker: What about the tens of thousands of houses which have been requisitioned and have remained empty for years?

Orders of the Day — Town and Country Planning Bill: Clause 13. — (Restriction on purchase of commons and open spaces.) (16 Nov 1944)

Mr Robert Tasker: I only intervene for a moment because, while one realises the importance of Southampton, which is not only a borough but a county, there are other difficulties which I foresee. In Holborn we have Gray's Inn subject to town planning and Lincoln's Inn exempt, and there are many private Acts of Parliament which give power even to individuals, such as the new building erected a few years ago on...

Orders of the Day — Hansard, Bound Volumes (Members of Parliament) (7 Nov 1944)

Mr Robert Tasker: I wish briefly to support what has been said. The whole question is this: Can Members perform their duties more efficiently with these bound volumes of HANSARD? There is no one who will deny that they can. If one has to keep the daily parts there is great difficulty in keeping them in order —at least, that is my experience—but a bound volume can be referred to much more readily, and it...

War Damaged Houses, South-East England (Repairs) (27 Oct 1944)

Mr Robert Tasker: I will not detain the House longer than is necessary, but as one who has been engaged as a surveyor in the building industry for many years, perhaps I may offer one or two observations. Do not let us disregard the very great difficulties which exist between one Department and another. Three things are necessary—labour, material and transport. Here are three Government Departments governing...

War Damaged Houses, South-East England (Repairs) (27 Oct 1944)

Mr Robert Tasker: The Ministry direct men where they are to go. I am urging that men should not be taken from one place and sent to another. They ought not to be directed from Leeds or Liverpool, to London. It is no use blinking the fact that there are tens of thousands of houses in London in a state of disrepair which, under proper supervision, could be made habitable. I am not advocating that they should be...

Orders of the Day — TOWN AND COUNTRY PLANNING (Re-Committed) BILL: NEW CLAusE. — (Supplement to Compensation in case of owner-occupiers.) (26 Oct 1944)

Mr Robert Tasker: May I refer to what was said by my hon. Friend the Member for East Stirling (Mr. Woodburn)? Many seem to have an idea which they introduce in nearly every Debate upon this Bill that there is no difference between property ownership and the ownership of stocks and shares. We ought not to have that idea in our minds. The two are not comparable. Transactions in property and transactions in...

Orders of the Day — TOWN AND COUNTRY PLANNING (Re-Committed) BILL (25 Oct 1944)

Mr Robert Tasker: It is an under-estimate.

Orders of the Day — Town and Country Planning Bill: New Clause. — (Assessment of compensation in connection with acquisition of land for pubic purposes by reference to 1939 prices.) (19 Oct 1944)

Mr Robert Tasker: If there is such a difficulty in determining the value, how does the district valuer value for probate in the case of death?

Orders of the Day — Town and Country Planning Bill: New Clause. — (Assessment of compensation in connection with acquisition of land for pubic purposes by reference to 1939 prices.) (19 Oct 1944)

Mr Robert Tasker: Is it just to fix the level of 1939 as a ceiling, and then for the Treasury to take present day values on every probate going through the Death Duties Office?

Orders of the Day — Town and Country Planning Bill (12 Jul 1944)

Mr Robert Tasker: The hon. Member's figures are entirely wrong. Kingsway has been one of the most disastrous things ever undertaken by the L.C.C. If I could I would give the details.
