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

Mr Robert Morrison: Yes, but in any case the geological basis is much more important than the geographical.

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

Mr Robert Morrison: There was a case recently where an important county council sent a resolution to the Minister asking that all the water supplies should be put under one undertaking in the county. That would be impossible to carry out unless the Minister gave the water authority concerned an opportunity to go much further afield to the sources of the water. It is all very well to make a decision for another...

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

Mr Robert Morrison: I hope the right hon. Lady will pass on that suggestion to the Prime Minister, and ask whether it is necessary to have an Under-Secretary to deal with petrol and oil. There is a great deal more water used than petrol and oil.

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

Mr Robert Morrison: Is there no answer to the question I asked, about whether it would be possible to have this Bill referred to a Joint Committee of the Lords and Commons instead of the ordinary Committee, for greater convenience?

Oral Answers to Questions — British Army: Missing Personnel (Italy) (6 Feb 1945)

Mr Robert Morrison: asked the Secretary of State for War whether he can state the number of officers and other ranks reported missing on the Italian front during 1944, concerning whom no further information has been obtained; and, in view of the anxiety of their relatives, whether further steps are being taken to ascertain whether they are in prisoner-of-war camps, or hospitals, or in hiding.

Orders of the Day — Local Authorities Loans Bill (2 Feb 1945)

Mr Robert Morrison: I think the Debate on the Second Reading of the Bill has not indicated any desire on the part of hon. Members who have spoken to oppose a Measure, the general scope and idea of which have been accepted, with some important reservations, to which I shall refer. We are all agreed, I think, that the Bill is useful and necessary, but the first simple question that I want to ask is: Why was it...

Orders of the Day — Local Authorities Loans Bill (2 Feb 1945)

Mr Robert Morrison: Why prohibit them from doing something which it is impossible for them to do?

Orders of the Day — Local Authorities Loans Bill (2 Feb 1945)

Mr Robert Morrison: The right hon. Gentleman's argument was that it would be quite impossible for local authorities to borrow on better terms than are to be given by the Government. Why prohibit people from doing something which it is impossible for them to do?

Oral Answers to Questions — Coal Industry: Deliveries, London (Man-power) (1 Feb 1945)

Mr Robert Morrison: Could the right hon. Gentleman now or later say something about the time which this Advisory Council and the other Departments take in deciding upon an application?

Orders of the Day — Export Guarantees Bill (31 Jan 1945)

Mr Robert Morrison: I wish to express my agreement with the statement which has been made that there is a considerable feeling in the country that the Government are not yet getting to close grips with the people who nave to handle this export business, if it is to be obtained. I admit that this is perhaps the most difficult period of time in which to get down to decisions. In the Prime Minister's words, we are...

Orders of the Day — Export Guarantees Bill (31 Jan 1945)

Mr Robert Morrison: I accept the right hon. Gentleman's invitation. The only other thing I want to do is to inquire whether the Department of Overseas Trade could not give particular consideration to the cases of the smaller firms interested in this matter who desire to get a place in the sun if they can. When these small firms have sent in an application, instead of handling the whole thing by correspondence...

Orders of the Day — A.T.S. (Overseas Service) (24 Jan 1945)

Mr Robert Morrison: Will the right hon. Gentleman give an assurance that those who volunteered some months ago to go abroad, and who are being kept back on the ground that their work here is said to be essential, will not be prevented from going unless they are doing most exceptional work and must be kept back?

Orders of the Day — Street Begging (14 Dec 1944)

Mr Robert Morrison: Speaking from personal experience, I can say that there are a number of men being discharged from the Army now with physical disabilities who come under the classification of epileptics. I have had three or four cases in my own constituency in the last week or two. They have no claim to pension, having been epileptics before entering the Army. They were accepted for Service, and, when it was...

Orders of the Day — Street Begging (14 Dec 1944)

Mr Robert Morrison: My correspondence with the Ministry has, generally, shown that it will not take responsibility if a man has been in the Army and has a pre-Army history of epileptic fits.
