Orders of the Day — New Clause. — (Power to extend the area of a local planning authority.) (9 Oct 1944)

Mrs Beatrice Rathbone: I wish to welcome the speech which the Minister has made particularly on behalf of the area I represent, for it is very closely affected by this new Clause. I want to bring before the Committee a point which, although mentioned, has not been sufficiently stressed. There is a real question of principle before the Committee. Are we to become an urban or rural-minded people in this country in...

Mrs Beatrice Rathbone: I wish for a moment to take the Committee back to the remarks made by the hon. Member for Abingdon (Sir R. Glyn) because he raised a point with which I have the very greatest sympathy. I would remind the Minister that the Minister of Agriculture, when dealing with the water section of the-Agriculture (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill, and in reply to a Parliamentary Question which I asked him...

Orders of the Day — Rural Water Supplies and Sewerage Bill: Clause 3. — (Extension of duties of local authorities and joint boards as to water supply.) (8 Jun 1944)

Mrs Beatrice Rathbone: I beg to move, in page 3, line 33, at the end, to insert: (2) In determining the priority between schemes necessary to carry out this obligation local authorities shall first consider the areas where no piped supply exists. There are, I gather, lying on the Ministerial table at this moment, a number of schemes awaiting the necessary funds, but they will not necessarily be schemes from the...

Orders of the Day — Agriculture (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill (16 May 1944)

Mrs Beatrice Rathbone: I desire to raise a small point on Clause 5, which deals with the supply of water to farmhouses and cottages. Under this Clause provision for water supplies will not be made if water mains are likely to be extended, or local water undertakers intend to provide the necessary water. I want to ask my right hon. Friend whether he is satisfied that there will not be any unnecessary delay in the...

Water Supply (3 May 1944)

Mrs Beatrice Rathbone: I must confess that I confronted the White Paper on water with mixed feelings. I myself feel sympathy for the Minister of Health, who has rather precipitately been forced into fatherhood of a large and unwieldy family of children, not the least unwieldy of which is this question of water. It is not as if he had had the disciplining of that family from infancy; he has inherited it at a period...

Orders of the Day — Education [Money] (28 Jan 1944)

Mrs Beatrice Rathbone: I want to add to what a previous speaker has said about those areas which will not be able to meet the expenditure involved in the Bill without undue hardship or greater financial assistance from the Board. I admit that, like the hon. and gallant Member for Ayr Burghs (Sir T. Moore), I came here to-day hoping that I might get off my chest a speech which I did not get the opportunity of making...

Orders of the Day — Education [Money] (28 Jan 1944)

Mrs Beatrice Rathbone: I naturally bow to your judgment, Mr. Williams, but I was going on to say that in paragraph (d)—I am here sticking to the letter of the Financial Resolution—reference is made to the carrying out of repairs and alterations. In my area these repairs and alterations are going to be more necessary and expensive than in certain other areas, and I hope that, in interpreting this particular...

Orders of the Day — Education [Money] (28 Jan 1944)

Mrs Beatrice Rathbone: But who is to judge?
