Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: Clause 9. — (Customs duty on soya beans.) (18 Jun 1935)

Mr Frank Clarke: I desire to oppose the Clause because there is a large mill in my division which will be seriously affected by this duty. I understand that at least 100 men will be dispensed with immediately it comes into effect, and, as in this particular case they deal with cargoes of soya beans running into thousands of tons, it is a pretty serious matter from their point of view. If they have to...

National Health Insurance and Contributory Pensions Bill. (6 Jun 1935)

Mr Frank Clarke: I rise to make an appeal to the Minister on one point, and that is that an additional Clause should be inserted in the Bill to provide for the insurance of boys and girls between the ages of 14 and 16. I have set down four reasons for this, which, with the permission of the House, I should like to give. The first is that there is at present no organised provision for the medical treatment of...

Orders of the Day — Amendment of Law. (17 Apr 1935)

Mr Frank Clarke: As representing one of the largest working class divisions, I would thank the Chancellor for a wonderful recovery in our part of the country. Three years ago we had an unemployment problem of between 5,000 and 6,000 but, as a result of the policy of the Government, it is down to 2,000. We have had no less than six fresh industries come into the division, in spite of one of the largest...

Private Business.: LONDON COUNTY COUNCIL (MONEY) BILL (By Order). (30 May 1934)

Mr Frank Clarke: Before stating the case for the navigational interests so closely linked with the problem of Waterloo Bridge, I should like to tell the House how much I appreciate the work done by the London Committee and all those bodies concerned with the amenities of London. In doing this I know that I am voicing the feelings of all those organisations for which I speak. Surely no Englishman can fail to...

Private Business.: LONDON COUNTY COUNCIL (MONEY) BILL (By Order). (30 May 1934)

Mr Frank Clarke: It is true that Lord Ritchie made that statement before the Royal Commission, but it is nearly seven years ago, and the colossal increase of tonnage since that time has caused even Lord Ritchie to change his point of view. Practical men say most definitely that this brdige is the greatest obstacle on the River Thames. If one took the advice of a specialist as to having his tonsils out and he...

Orders of the Day — King's Speech.: Debate on the Address. (28 Nov 1932)

Mr Frank Clarke: In rising to address this honourable House for the first time, after having attempted on several occasions to get in with a maiden speech, I am confident that I shall receive that indulgence which this great Assembly always extends to a "new boy," especially having kept my virginity so long. So far as this Amendment is concerned, I know of no way of judging the future but by the past, and, as...

Oral Answers to Questions — Post Office.: Grand Opera (Government Grant). (11 Apr 1932)

Mr Frank Clarke: 40. asked the Postmaster-General if he has yet received a reply from the British Broadcasting Corporation to his communication on the subject of the suggested curtailment by the Covent Garden Opera Syndicate of the programme of opera performances?

Oral Answers to Questions — Maidstone Prison. (17 Mar 1932)

Mr Frank Clarke: 20. (for Captain HAROLD BALFOUR) asked the Home Secretary if his Department can now find use for the whole of Maidstone Prison; and if any request from the Kent County Council to be relieved of their undertaking to purchase this building will have the sympathetic consideration of the Home Office?
