Woollen Textile Industry. ( 3 Dec 1930)

Mr Frederick Jowett: I desire to associate myself with the congratulations to the hon. Member for Shipley (Mr. Lockwood).

This Motion is in two parts, first, to call attention to the present condition of the woollen industry, and then to call for reorganisation. I have been associated with the industry for a...

Woollen Textile Industry. ( 3 Dec 1930)

Mr Frederick Jowett: That is a separate story and one which would not be creditable to those who floated it if it were told. When this firm pays 10 per cent., it is equal to 50 per cent. on the actual capital involved. Rationalisation inevitably means more unemployment, and it frequently means monopoly and monopoly prices, and the only alternative is organisation under State direction. In that connection, I want...

Orders of the Day — HOUSING (No. 2) BILL.: New Clause. — (Dimension of houses.) ( 8 Jul 1930)

Mr Frederick Jowett: I beg to move, "That the Clause be read a Second time." So far as I can gather, there is nothing in this Bill requiring a minimum size for the houses to be built under it. That is a most unfortunate omission in a Bill of this kind, which bases the State subsidy on the number of persons to be accommodated and not on the house itself. It is an inducement to local authorities to economise on the...
