Orders of the Day — Local Government (Boundary Commission) Bill (5 Jun 1945)

Mr John Henderson: I ask the Minister to give this matter sympathetic consideration. I agree with my hon. Friend that it would relieve anxiety if this Amendment were accepted. I, therefore, ask the Minister to give it sympathetic consideration.

Russia (German Labour) (11 Apr 1945)

Mr John Henderson: This Debate has been interesting, but at the same time rather depressing. I have no doubt that the hon. Member for Ipswich (Mr. Stokes) and the hon. Member for Leigh (Mr. Tinker) are people of warm hearts and are kindly disposed, but, if I may say so, I think if the attitude of mind which is displayed in their speeches were the attitude of any Government, it would lead to another war before...

Orders of the Day — Hydro-Electric Undertakings (Valuation for Rating) (Scotland) Bill (14 Feb 1945)

Mr John Henderson: This Bill is one which I think every Member will agree contains a principle which ought to be supported, the principle being to get rid of the discrimination between the two methods of producing electricity. The one point that one may make regarding that is that this relief comes rather belatedly. It is—I will not say suspicious, but illuminating—that, although this proposed reform has...

Orders of the Day — Hydro-Electric Undertakings (Valuation for Rating) (Scotland) Bill (14 Feb 1945)

Mr John Henderson: Surely the two things are not going to happen in the same year. They cannot pass the rebate on until they know what the relief is to be?

Orders of the Day — Food Preservatives (Regulation) (14 Feb 1945)

Mr John Henderson: I beg to second the Motion. The particular point which my hon. Friends and I would like to elucidate is how an Order like this comes within the powers conferred by this House. I suppose it is for the efficient prosecution of the war, but we should like to know how it comes within the ambit of those powers.

House of Commons (Rebuilding) (25 Jan 1945)

Mr John Henderson: I did not mean to intervene in this Debate, but it is one of great importance, and, however incomplete one's views, I think it is one's duty to express them. My hon. Friend who has just sat down has criticised the architect chosen. I think that, as an individual, he is quite entitled to hold those views, but Sir Giles Gilbert Scott, as my hon. Friend said himself, is, admittedly, a very...

House of Commons (Rebuilding) (25 Jan 1945)

Mr John Henderson: The House of Lords.

Orders of the Day — Emergency Powers (Defence) (General Regulations) (25 Jan 1945)

Mr John Henderson: This is one of the Orders to which attention was drawn by the Committee presided over by one of the Members for Ayrshire, and they properly drew attention to it. It is an astounding thing that under the powers which this House gave in 1939 for the efficient prosecution of the war and the maintenance of supplies and essential services it should be possible to authorise local authorities to...

Orders of the Day — Representation of the People Bill: Clause 12. — (Registers which are to be in force for local government and Parliamentary elections.) (17 Jan 1945)

Mr John Henderson: This is a matter which affects all parties equally. It is ridiculous that the register, which is to the advantage of those conducting the election, should be produced at such a late date that full advantage cannot be taken of it. If my hon. and gallant Friend's suggestion is accepted, it will mean that there will be an interval of a month instead of 14 days as at present. In a great many...

Orders of the Day — Burma (12 Dec 1944)

Mr John Henderson: I am sure that my hon. Friends and I can have no objection to the tone of the speech of the hon. Member for Shipley (Mr. Creech Jones), in his references to our Report. But, on the other hand, I, personally, would like to disagree most strongly with him on one point. There are other points on which I also disagree, but I would like to concentrate on this one: He questioned the wisdom and...

Orders of the Day — Burma (12 Dec 1944)

Mr John Henderson: It can be obtained at Conservative offices and perhaps at bookstalls, although I am not sure. I think there is no doubt that in the world to-day there is a feeling that larger areas are desirable for economic security and other reasons. People talk about federations of Europe and of the world, but these are, I am afraid, some distance away. But we have, to-day, three large economic...

Industrial Injury Insurance (8 Nov 1944)

Mr John Henderson: I must disclose to the House that I am a director of an insurance company, a small proportion of whose business is in workmen's compensation, but I think the House will realise that what I have to say is made without any regard to that. This White Paper is one of a series and one begins to wonder exactly what are the objects of these White Papers and what attention is paid to them. The Home...

Industrial Injury Insurance (8 Nov 1944)

Mr John Henderson: That is not the solution of the White Paper, and I am dealing with what is in the White Paper. I think my hon. Friend will agree that, as long as it is on this basis, there must be a rule laid down, and whether it is arising "out of and in the course of employment," or some other words, you have to apply legal rules to this question. You will have the same difficulty as you had in the past....

Orders of the Day — Emergency Powers (Defence) Cold Storage (Charges) (17 Oct 1944)

Mr John Henderson: I do not want to follow my hon. Friend into his argument that the cold stores should be taken over entirely, but I agree that the matter is complicated. To try to solve this Order is like trying to work out a crossword puzzle without getting any of the clues. The Order conveys nothing at all to any Member of this House, and, even if one refers back to the Order which is proposed to be...

Orders of the Day — Emergency Powers (Defence) Cold Storage (Charges) (17 Oct 1944)

Mr John Henderson: With respect, Sir, we could not possibly decide whether 5½d. or 6d. was right without considering all the other elements that come into the calculations of what the industry is to get.

Orders of the Day — Emergency Powers (Defence) Cold Storage (Charges) (17 Oct 1944)

Mr John Henderson: If that Ruling is adhered to, it means that it is impossible, in fact, to discuss this Order at all, because, as is stated in the letter which went from the Ministry of Food to the various firms, a copy of which I have, this question of a change from 6d. to 5½d. is only one item of the remuneration which the industry is to get, and if we are limited to this narrow question we can only see...

Orders of the Day — Emergency Powers (Defence) Cold Storage (Charges) (17 Oct 1944)

Mr John Henderson: By this Ruling, Mr. Deputy-Speaker, you have really excluded any discussion at all on this particular Order. The question of 6d. or 5½d. is the basis of determining what surplus is to remain, and I would have thought, with respect, that we were entitled to raise the question as to what would happen to the surplus left over. This question of the reduction from 6d. to 5½d. is only part of...

Orders of the Day — Emergency Powers (Defence) Cold Storage (Charges) (17 Oct 1944)

Mr John Henderson: In view of your Ruling, Mr. Deputy-Speaker, I am afraid there is nothing more one can say and Parliament cannot perform its proper function, which is, to watch legislation, and this really has an effect on legislation. It may be that the previous Order should have been attacked.

Orders of the Day — Emergency Powers (Defence) Cold Storage (Charges) (17 Oct 1944)

Mr John Henderson: I am sorry for any misunderstanding. I certainly had not finished. The point now is that, in view of your Ruling, Mr. Deputy-Speaker, we must come back and consider whether the Order is within the powers conferred. This Order states that it is made under the powers conferred by Section 2 (1) of the Emergency Powers (Defence) Act, 1939. The Emergency Powers Act, 1939, Section 2, Sub-section...
