Oral Answers to Questions — House of Commons (Refreshment Department) (19 Oct 1945)

Mr Robert Morrison: Yes Sir. Since the last Debate in the House the Kitchen Committee has given active consideration to the suggestions put forward by Members of all parties, and at their last meeting the following decisions were made: 1. Substantial reductions are to be made in the charges for meals in the Members' Dining Room, and for Members only in the Strangers' Dining Room. From Monday next, there will be...

Oral Answers to Questions — House of Commons (Refreshment Department) (19 Oct 1945)

Mr Robert Morrison: I had the opportunity this morning of addressing a meeting of the waiting staff and of putting the proposals before them and indicating what the Committee had in mind as to the compensation that might be given to them in the arrangement of their wages in order to make up for the loss of tips. As far as I am able to ascertain, they are perfectly satisfied. There may be individual cases which...

Oral Answers to Questions — House of Commons (Refreshment Department) (19 Oct 1945)

Mr Robert Morrison: It is very difficult to answer that question. There has been a very considerable increase in the amount of custom that has come to the Refreshment Department since the improvements were effected. This is not the end of the improvements; it is only the end of the beginning. The first proposal which the Kitchen Committee submitted in discussions with the Treasury was that it was unfair to ask...

Oral Answers to Questions — House of Commons (Refreshment Department) (19 Oct 1945)

Mr Robert Morrison: I must call the attention of the hon. Gentleman to the fact that it is not in accordance with long Parliamentary experience that anyone in any part of the House should, at any time, say a kind word about the Kitchen Committee.

House of Commons (Refreshment Department) (24 Aug 1945)

Mr Robert Morrison: After the interesting discussion we have listened to, I feel almost tempted to ask for the indulgence of the House in making my maiden speech as Chairman of the Kitchen. Committee, to which thankless task I was elected about 24 hours ago. I am sure that the hon. Member for Uneaten (Mr. Bowles) and the other hon. Members who have put forward useful and wise suggestions, did not do so as any...

Place of Sitting (3 Aug 1945)

Mr Robert Morrison: I was not quite clear by what method the public or Members of Parliament are to get into the interior of the House, while we are meeting in St. Stephen's Hall. Usually we pass through St. Stephen's Hall into the Central Lobby, but on this occasion it will be impossible to come in that way.

Oral Answers to Questions — British Prisoners of War: Government Contracts (London Area) (10 Apr 1945)

Mr Robert Morrison: asked the Minister of Production to what extent an embargo has been laid upon the placing of certain Government contracts in the Metropolitan aea; whether it applies to the provision of parts of houses, temporary or permanent; and will he give particulars.

Oral Answers to Questions — British Prisoners of War: Government Contracts (London Area) (10 Apr 1945)

Mr Robert Morrison: Does the hon. Gentleman appreciate that the method by which this embargo, for it is an embargo, is being carried out means that no contract will be placed in the London area unless it cannot be placed in the provinces and that this will mean that a number of businesses which have been established in London for many generations will be put out of business altogether because they are unable to...

Transport Command (Safety of Passengers) (10 Apr 1945)

Mr Robert Morrison: I propose to tell the House something which I think will be of interest. I have never spoken before about this, for reasons which will be obvious, but I think the time has come to say what was my personal experience, and why I am grateful to the hon. Member for Nuneaton (Mr. Bowles) for bringing this matter before the House. Some time ago I was selected as a member of a Parliamentary...

Oral Answers to Questions — Public Health: Refuse Collection (London) (8 Mar 1945)

Mr Robert Morrison: In considering that will my right hon. Friend bear in mind a reply of the Minister of Supply yesterday that certain kinds of salvage which are collected are in short supply and are badly needed?

Oral Answers to Questions — Salvage Collection (7 Mar 1945)

Mr Robert Morrison: asked the Minister of Supply whether he can make any statement as to the continued importance of salvage collection by local authorities.

Oral Answers to Questions — Salvage Collection (7 Mar 1945)

Mr Robert Morrison: Will the Minister take steps to see that the reply he has just given is communicated to the local authorities?

Oral Answers to Questions — War Savings Certificates (Army Post Offices) (7 Mar 1945)

Mr Robert Morrison: asked the Postmaster-General if he will make arrangements for war savings certificates to be on sale at Army post offices overseas.

Oral Answers to Questions — War Savings Certificates (Army Post Offices) (7 Mar 1945)

Mr Robert Morrison: Will the right hon. and gallant Gentleman keep in mind the fact that it might be useful, particularly on the Italian front, if more facilities were given for soldiers to purchase war savings certificates when they want to send gifts to their relatives at home, as this would save them having to spend their money on rubbishy articles at exorbitant prices?

Oral Answers to Questions — Old Folks' Clubs (Financial Assistance) (1 Mar 1945)

Mr Robert Morrison: asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware of the useful purpose served by old folks' clubs in various localities; and whether he will consider empowering local authorities to make grants towards their establishment and maintenance.

Oral Answers to Questions — India: Chamber of Princes (1 Mar 1945)

Mr Robert Morrison: asked the Secretary of State for India if there have been any further developments concerning the resignations of office bearers of the Chamber of Princes; whether discussions have been or are intended to be held; and whether he has any further statement to make.

Oral Answers to Questions — India: Chamber of Princes (1 Mar 1945)

Mr Robert Morrison: Does the Minister appreciate that three months have now passed since he made a statement on this matter, and does he not think that we have enough trouble in India without allowing a breach like this to continue to widen? Does he realise that this matter involves over 100,000,000 people, who have been steadfastly loyal to the war effort, and ought he not to make an immediate effort to try...

Business of the House (1 Mar 1945)

Mr Robert Morrison: It would be for the convenience of the House if the right hon. Gentleman could say whether, in the event of the House deciding to alter its hours of Sitting, it is proposed to set up Standing Committees during that week. I understand the date of the alteration is to be 13th March. Is it proposed then that the Standing Committees shall hold their first meetings during that week, or will any...

Orders of the Day — Water Bill (21 Feb 1945)

Mr Robert Morrison: I am sure the Minister is well satisfied with the reception this Bill has received up to the present, as compared with the somewhat stormy passage that the Water Undertakings Bill had in 1943. I would like to make some comments about this Bill in what I hope will be a helpful way, but may I first put in a personal word? As the Minister knows, I am a member of the Metropolitan Water Board and,...

Orders of the Day — Water Bill (21 Feb 1945)

Mr Robert Morrison: It would be very helpful to those interested in the provisions of this Bill if, some time before the end of the Committee stage of the present Bill, the Rivers Bill were to be printed, so that we could get the whole picture in our minds and see how these two Bills will fit into each other. It is popular, in some quarters, to sneer at planning of all kinds. One of our newspapers is sneering...
