Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture: Water Supplies (Grants) (16 Dec 1943)

Mrs Beatrice Rathbone: Is my right hon. Friend satisfied that farmers are aware of this and are taking the fullest possible advantage of it?

Post-War Reconstruction (7 Dec 1943)

Mrs Beatrice Rathbone: I am delighted to be able to have an opportunity of taking part in this Debate, so that I can add my voice to the many speakers speaking on the King's Speech who have begged the Government to move more speedily in producing their schemes for future development in this country. It makes it extremely difficult for hon. Members to take part in a Debate of this kind when we really have no...

Prisons: Taxicab Sharing (11 Nov 1943)

Mrs Beatrice Rathbone: asked the Home Secretary whether he will ensure that greater publicity be given to the necessity of sharing taxicabs, especially in the organised queues at railway stations in the London areas?

Oral Answers to Questions — Taxicab Sharing (10 Nov 1943)

Oral Answers to Questions — Taxicab Sharing (10 Nov 1943)

Mrs Beatrice Rathbone: While appreciating my hon. Friend's reply, might I ask whether he is aware that more has to be done to publicise this matter? The co-operation of the public should be sought, and the taxi companies should be made to realise the necessity.

Oral Answers to Questions — Taxicab Sharing (10 Nov 1943)

Mrs Beatrice Rathbone: Should not the delicate question as to who pays the double fare be made clear, as well as the question of how far the taxi proprietors are to profit?

Orders of the Day — Trend of Population (16 Jul 1943)

Mrs Beatrice Rathbone: I want to deal with one particular aspect of this problem which is common knowledge to us all. Many women are permitted under war conditions to stay at their work too long and to resume their work too soon after their babies are born. If we do not look after this particular aspect, we are going to lay up an enormous amount of trouble for ourselves in future. There are three reasons why this...

Orders of the Day — Trend of Population (16 Jul 1943)

Mrs Beatrice Rathbone: I would not like to let it pass that I described these people as belonging to the intelligent classes. I said that these three classes could not be suspected either of a lack of intelligence or of indifference to childhood.

Orders of the Day — Trend of Population (16 Jul 1943)

Mrs Beatrice Rathbone: I am a little afraid that what the Minister has just said may give the impression, perhaps wrongly, that he takes a fairly optimistic and placid view of the situation. He said that there is no reason to feel apprehensive about an increased fall. Will he admit that if the birth-rate even continues at about the same level as from 1933 to 1939, that will inevitably lead to a dangerously steep...

Orders of the Day — Trend of Population (16 Jul 1943)

Mrs Beatrice Rathbone: The inquiry which the Minister has foreshadowed does suggest that it will be of alarmingly large proportions and take a very long time. Could we have an assurance that every practical step that can be taken will not have to await the end of the inquiry? Further, can the right hon. Gentleman say whether something is to be done about family allowances?

Orders of the Day — Emergency Powers (Defence) Act, 1939 (Continuance) (15 Jul 1943)

Mrs Beatrice Rathbone: It is with fear and trembling that I rise to support my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Penryn and Falmouth (Major Petherick), because I realise that it is a very parochial matter. A great percentage of our constituents in Cornwall make a living in the hiring out of boats, and also the constituents of many hon. Members sitting on this side of the House have made Cornwall their place...

Oral Answers to Questions — Colonial Empire: War Casualties (23 Jun 1943)

Mrs Beatrice Rathbone: asked the Prime Minister whether he can now say what are the final figures for Allied and Axis casualties, differentiating between white and coloured troops, in the East African and North African campaigns, respectively; and whether he can give any estimate of the numbers lost at sea?

Oral Answers to Questions — Rubber Boots (Agricultural Workers) (22 Jun 1943)

Mrs Beatrice Rathbone: asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will provide for the needs of agricultural workers in distributing any existing stocks of rubber boots?

Food Supplies (10 Jun 1943)

Mrs Beatrice Rathbone: I should like to put a point in connection with the distribution of oranges. As it is common knowledge that they are vitally important to young children, and particularly to infants, would it not be possible to have oranges distributed from the food offices rather than from the shops? At the food offices they have the records of young people and could see that those for whom the oranges were...

Orders of the Day — Reconstruction (2 Dec 1942)

Mrs Beatrice Rathbone: The hon. Gentleman the Member for East Aberdeen (Mr. Boothby) has given a vivid picture of what he visualises the post-war world will hold for us. I wish to raise one general and one particular point. We all agree that the post-war world depends for its success entirely on our victory. It also depends for its success on the careful plans we lay to-day. It will not be successful if we make...

Oral Answers to Questions — Food Supplies: Fish (Minimum Size) (25 Nov 1942)

Mrs Beatrice Rathbone: Is the hon. Gentleman aware that very valuable foodstuff, in the form of pilchards caught off the Cornish coast, is being thrown back daily? If they cannot be used immediately, will he see that proper tinning arrangements are made?

Oral Answers to Questions — Public Health: War-time Nurseries (Artificial Sunlight) (19 Nov 1942)

Mrs Beatrice Rathbone: asked the Minister of Health how many war nurseries are supplied with, or have access to, sun-lamps?

Oral Answers to Questions — Public Health: War-time Nurseries (Artificial Sunlight) (19 Nov 1942)

Mrs Beatrice Rathbone: While I accept what the Minister says, can he give us any idea how many war nurseries have the service of sun-lamps?

Oral Answers to Questions — Food Supplies: Oranges and Dried Eggs (War-time Nurseries) (18 Nov 1942)

Mrs Beatrice Rathbone: asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food why priority is not given to war nurseries to procure oranges and dried eggs, at least when these articles are released to the general public?
