Mr Ramsay Macdonald: Tests of 15 plants have been made by the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research under the published conditions for testing of plants for the low temperature carbonization of coal.

Reports upon these tests are intended to place...

Oral Answers to Questions — International Sugar Conference. (6 May 1937)

Mr Ramsay Macdonald: Yes, Sir. I am glad to be able to inform the House that the International Sugar Conference has reached an agreement on all points of substance. Pending its signature, however, I am not in a position to give details of its contents, but I may say that it provides for the regulation of the quantities to be exported from the principal producing countries during a period of five years. I would...

Oral Answers to Questions — International Sugar Conference. (6 May 1937)

Mr Ramsay Macdonald: As quickly as possible. The documents are being prepared now. Everything has been cleared up and the preparation of the documents is in hand. There are certain questions relating to the signature of them to be dealt with, and as soon as that is done I see no reason why a White Paper should not he issued without delay.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence.: The Coronation. (5 May 1937)

Mr Ramsay Macdonald: I have been asked to reply. In order to speed up the emptying of the Abbey after the Service, a bridge has been constructed during the past few days which will enable Members of the House of Commons to leave the Abbey almost simultaneously with the Peers. To use the covered way after the Service would delay for over an hour Members' exit from the Abbey; but they will, of course, be able to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Post Office.: The Coronation. (3 May 1937)

Mr Ramsay Macdonald: That is a totally different question. If the hon. Member has any communication I should be glad to have it. No committee for which I am answering is responsible for the construction of Westminster Abbey.

Oral Answers to Questions — Post Office.: The Coronation. (3 May 1937)

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance.: Geological Survey. (29 Apr 1937)

Mr Ramsay Macdonald: The Geological Survey is intended for economic as well as for scientific purposes. It is not surprising, therefore, that some areas have been surveyed on several occasions and others have had little or no revision. About 13 per cent. of the area of Great Britain is represented by Geological Survey maps of about 8o years ago. Another 9 per cent., in the Highlands and Islands of Scotland, has...

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance.: Geological Survey. (29 Apr 1937)

Mr Ramsay Macdonald: If it seems at all necessary and sufficiently important, I shall certainly communicate it to the House.

Oral Answers to Questions — The Coronation. (20 Apr 1937)

Mr Ramsay Macdonald: The hon. Member appears to be misinformed as to the position. Allocation of seats have been made both to the widows and mothers of officers and men who fell in action or died of war service while in His Majesty's Forces, and also to the Women's Section of the British Legion and to the Women's Section of the British Legion, Scotland. An announcement recently appeared in the Press giving...

Oral Answers to Questions — Industrial Diseases (Coal Miners). (8 Apr 1937)

Mr Ramsay Macdonald: The standing committee appointed by the Medical Research Council to direct research into disease of the lungs among industrial workers has already promoted several investigations into silicosis and other conditions; the results have been published in a series of official reports and scientific papers. These researches were in most cases not specially directed to the particular problem of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Industrial Diseases (Coal Miners). (8 Apr 1937)

Mr Ramsay Macdonald: The hon. Member can rely upon it that, so far as pressure is concerned, it will be exerted, but these are very delicate and difficult scientific investigations, and the worst thing we can do if we want to get a real, good, sound conclusion is to press them too hard. We have already increased the staff of assistants engaged in this work.

Oral Answers to Questions — The Coronation. (6 Apr 1937)

Mr Ramsay Macdonald: With regard to the first part of my hon. and gallant Friend's question, I must refer him to my reply to the hon. and gallant Member for Wycombe (Sir A. Knox) on 10th March last. As regards the arrangements for holders of the Victoria Cross, all those who desire to do so have been enabled to purchase seats on the Government stands and the remainder who wish to be present will be accommodated...

Oral Answers to Questions — The Coronation. (24 Mar 1937)

Mr Ramsay Macdonald: Seats have not been specifically allocated to the women's section of the British Legion. There is a considerable allocation to the British Legion as a whole, but in accordance with the procedure applied to other organisations, the Legion have not been required to distribute these seats in any particular way. Special arrangements are being made to provide seats for representatives of the...

Oral Answers to Questions — The Coronation. (24 Mar 1937)

Mr Ramsay Macdonald: I am afraid that I cannot arrange for tickets for all organisations claiming seats to view the Royal procession. I prefer to express no further opinion on the matter.
