Orders of the Day — National Economy Bill.: Clause 1. — (Power to make Orders in Council for effecting certain econoniias.) (24 Sep 1931)

Mr Joseph Sullivan: I rise for the purpose of putting some questions to the Minister to which I should like answers. When unemployed are referred to the public assistance committees, what scale is to be applied? Is it to be the scale of unemployment benefit or the scale of the public assistance committees? It is important that we should know. I represent a depressed area where probably 90 per cent. of the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Housing.: Rural Authorities Bill (Advisory Committees). (30 Jul 1931)

Mr Joseph Sullivan: 79. asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he is in a position to announce the names of the persons whom it is proposed to appoint as members of the Scottish Committee to be set up under the Housing (Rural Authorities) Bill?

Orders of the Day — Supply. (25 Jun 1931)

Mr Joseph Sullivan: In the county of Lanarkshire you do not pay for the roads.

Orders of the Day — Supply. (25 Jun 1931)

Mr Joseph Sullivan: I wish to raise some points in connection with housing. I do not agree with the statement that we only require 100,000 houses, because the report of the Royal Commission in 1918 said that we had a shortage of 121,000 houses and that if we wanted to raise the standard of housing, the shortage was much greater. In addition, the annual output of houses required is calculated at 10,000, so that...

Orders of the Day — REPRESENTATION OF THE PEOPLE (No. 2) BILL.: Clause 5. — (Restriction on use of vehicles at Parliamentary elections.) (21 May 1931)

Mr Joseph Sullivan: I rise to protest against the statement of the hon. Member for East Aberdeenshire (Mr. Boothby), deriding his own countrymen. He seems to have a penchant for running down his countrymen. He stated to the House, amidst the cheers of his supporters, that the Scottish idea of honesty is to go in one man's motor car to the poll and to vote for someone else. I sincerely hope that the hon. Member...

Orders of the Day — REPRESENTATION OF THE PEOPLE (No. 2) BILL.: Clause 5. — (Restriction on use of vehicles at Parliamentary elections.) (21 May 1931)

Mr Joseph Sullivan: The hon. Member has not withdrawn the statement reflecting upon his own countrymen. I once stood as candidate in a country area, and all the cars that I could get on any day numbered three. My opponent could get 200 or 300 cars. I know of one case of a man, 74 years of age, who was going to be sent in a Conservative car, but he said that he had altered his mind and, although he was a lifelong...

Oral Answers to Questions — Coal Industry.: Royalties (Lanarkshire). (24 Feb 1931)

Mr Joseph Sullivan: 42. asked the Secretary for Mines the amount paid by coal owners in Lanarkshire in mining royalties and rates for the five years ending December, 1930?

Orders of the Day — Education (School Attendance) Bill.: Clause 3. — (Short title, construction, extent, saving and commencement.) (21 Jan 1931)

Mr Joseph Sullivan: On a point of Order. I do not think the hon. Member wants to be unfair, but I want him to explain—

Orders of the Day — Education (School Attendance) Bill.: Clause 3. — (Short title, construction, extent, saving and commencement.) (21 Jan 1931)

Mr Joseph Sullivan: In addressing my point of Order to you, Sir, I want the hon. Member to define the £9 out of every £10 to which he has referred.

Orders of the Day — Schedule. (4 Dec 1930)

Mr Joseph Sullivan: I agree with what has been said by the hon. Member for Camlachie (Mr. Stephen). I understand that there will be another opportunity of raising this question, but it is regrettable that something has not been done up to now in the matter and that it has not been treated as seriously as we in Scotland wish it to be treated. There has been a great amount of trouble in Scotland and various...

Orders of the Day — Education (School Attendance) Bill. (6 Nov 1930)

Mr Joseph Sullivan: I do not want to interrupt the Noble Lord, but I myself get 12s. a week—

Orders of the Day — Civil Estimates and Estimates for Revenue Departments, Supplementary Estimates, 1930.: Air Estimates, 1930. (30 Jul 1930)

Mr Joseph Sullivan: I wish to lay a complaint before the hon. Gentleman, and I think that this is the most suitable opportunity. I listened very attentively to the, claims made on behalf of the ex-service men. I do not always believe everything I hear from the other side in connection with this matter. I wish to make a complaint with regard to the village of Hart-hill. The Minister has particulars of the case....

Orders of the Day — ROAD TRAFFIC (Recommitted) BILL [Lords].: Clause 118. — (Special provisions as to Scotland.) (22 Jul 1930)

Mr Joseph Sullivan: Policemen often make statements in the Courts that are untrue, and it is utterly preposterous that the liberty of the subject should be dependent upon one witness. I think it is a bad law. The people on the other side made the laws to suit themselves. But the way to cure a bad law is not to put another bad law on the Statute Book. I put it to my Scottish colleagues that they have no right to...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Department of Health for Scotland. (14 Jul 1930)

Mr Joseph Sullivan: Is my hon. Friend going to say anything about the position of the River Clyde?

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Department of Health for Scotland. (14 Jul 1930)

Mr Joseph Sullivan: I must enter my protest against the Government giving way to the appeal which has just been made. Scotland has been suffering for years from one and two roomed houses, and it is only in recent times that we have begun to raise the standard of living. Even at the moment 48 per cent. of our people are living in one and two roomed houses, and that is only a reduction from the 62 per cent. a few...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Public Education, Scotland. (14 Jul 1930)

Mr Joseph Sullivan: There is no difficulty about the increasing the number of teachers or the building of new schools.

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Public Education, Scotland. (14 Jul 1930)

Mr Joseph Sullivan: The latter part of the hon. Gentleman's speech impressed me. I was on a school board for longer years than I care to count, and in my time the teachers got no pensions at all. Another speech I want to follow up is that of the Noble Lady the Member for Perth and Kinross (Duchess of Atholl). I always take pleasure in listening to her speeches on education, but I wonder if she has had any...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Public Education, Scotland. (14 Jul 1930)

Mr Joseph Sullivan: I am glad the Noble Lady has made that explanation, because I do not want to misrepresent her. If she will read the OFFICIAL REPORT tomorrow, it may help her. At any rate, she wants to do something for pre-school children. If we spend the public health money on the child, what is the difference between that and spending the education fund on looking after the child? The big thing is that the...
