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

Mr Robert Morrison: The point I am making is that these people are in an extremely difficult position, and I do not know any class in the community for whom it is so difficult to do anything. Hon. Members have said that there is no excuse for anybody begging, but that does not cover the epileptic. The employment exchange officer, who has to deal with problems of disabilities, tells them that he cannot put them...

Oral Answers to Questions — Children's Homes (Committees of Inquiry) (7 Dec 1944)

Foot-and-Mouth Disease (17 Nov 1944)

Mr Robert Morrison: I hope that the speech of the hon. Member for West Perth (Mr. Snadden) will receive the very widest publicity in Scotland.

Foot-and-Mouth Disease (17 Nov 1944)

Mr Robert Morrison: I know there are difficulties. One difficulty is that the Ministry of Agriculture, which in the opinion of Scottish people is an English Department, has some powers in this matter; and they do not like taking orders from the English Department of Agriculture. I will only say that I hope that the remarks of the hon. Member for West Perth will be noted in Scottish local government circles, and...
