Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: New Clause. — (Housekeeping allowance.) (15 Jun 1944)

Mr Robert Morrison: May I add one or two sentences from a slightly different angle? I do not know what the Chancellor is going to say in reply to the discussion, but I hope that he is not going to turn down the whole thing, because there is a case that is worth looking into. The Statute lays it down definitely that, before an allowance can be given for a housekeeper, the housekeeper must be resident in the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Identity Cards (Checking) (25 May 1944)

Mr Robert Morrison: Does my right hon. Friend propose to publish the result of this round-up?

Oral Answers to Questions — Service Pay and Allowances (18 May 1944)

Mr Robert Morrison: asked the Secretary of State for Air whether he is aware that recent changes in service pay and allowances has resulted in the pay of certain R.A.F. married personnel being reduced by 3s. to 4s. per week; and, in view of the discontent caused by this unexpected position, will he take steps to rectify this anomaly.

Oral Answers to Questions — Service Pay and Allowances (18 May 1944)

Mr Robert Morrison: Does not the right hon. and gallant Gentleman think it unfortunate that after all the Press and radio publicity about this, the net result, so far as married men in the Royal Air Force are concerned, is that 3s. to 4s. have been deducted from their pay and added to the wives' allowance, and that, therefore, the men are under the impression that the Government have increased the wives'...

Orders of the Day — Rural Water Supplies and Sewerage Bill (18 May 1944)

Mr Robert Morrison: Will account be taken of whether it would be advisable or otherwise for a very small water authority to continue to exist, or whether it could not do much better by being absorbed by a neighbouring authority which has better facilities for extending the supply?

Orders of the Day — Rural Water Supplies and Sewerage Bill (18 May 1944)

Mr Robert Morrison: Will it not unnecessarily complicate matters to give Government grants to small undertakings which, under further legislation, will probably cease to exist?

Orders of the Day — Rural Water Supplies and Sewerage Bill (18 May 1944)

Mr Robert Morrison: Surely the main test must be whether the small burghs can supply the whole of their citizens with a proper supply of water.

Oral Answers to Questions — Housing: Prefabricated Houses (17 May 1944)

Mr Robert Morrison: Apart from the invitation to local authorities to send one or two people to see the house, has any communication been sent advising them whether there is any action that they can conveniently take with regard to the provision of these houses?

Oral Answers to Questions — R.a.F. (Overseas Service, Leave) (11 May 1944)

Mr Robert Morrison: asked the Secretary of State for Air what period of leave is granted to R.A.F. personnel upon their return to the United Kingdom after serving four years overseas.

Oral Answers to Questions — R.a.F. (Overseas Service, Leave) (11 May 1944)

Mr Robert Morrison: In the case of those who are being sent on short leave after four years' overseas service, are they informed that the remainder of their leave is being held in abeyance, or are they just being sent off under the impression that that is all the leave they are to have?

Education Bill: Eighth Schedule. — (Amendment of Enactments.) (11 May 1944)

Mr Robert Morrison: Will the Minister be known as "the Minister of Education" or as "the Minister of the Board of Education"?

Education Bill: Ninth Schedule. — (Enactments Repealed.) (11 May 1944)

Mr Robert Morrison: Is the hon. Member suggesting to the House that if he had taken his Amendment to a Division it would have been carried?

Orders of the Day — Education Bill: New Clause. — (Power of Minister to adjust variations of rates consequent upon commencement of Part II.) (9 May 1944)

Mr Robert Morrison: Has the hon. Gentleman any information as to how many authorities will be affected by this?

Orders of the Day — Education Bill: Clause 31. — (Education of pupils requiring special educational treatment.) (9 May 1944)

Mr Robert Morrison: I be, to second the Amendment. I reinforce the plea that has been made by my hon. Friend. A great many changes take place in the methods of educating handicapped children. People at the Board of Education are concerned with much bigger questions and have not time to specialise in this kind of work. There is another class of case which, it seems to me, would be most useful for this Advisory...

Water Supply (3 May 1944)

Mr Robert Morrison: Does that mean that the Government propose to proceed with the Water Undertakings Bill this Session?

Water Supply (3 May 1944)

Mr Robert Morrison: Is the Minister aware that a request will probably come from the Metropolitan Water Board after their meeting next Friday; and that they think it is time that the Ministry of Health took part in this campaign and called upon people not to waste water, instead of leaving it to the people who supply the water to do everything?

Water Supply (3 May 1944)

Mr Robert Morrison: This Debate has already progressed sufficiently to indicate that the Government must be a long way from being satisfied with the reception given to the White Paper. At any rate, if they are not, before it is finished they will be convinced that the White Paper does not come up to the expectations which Mem- bers of the House hoped for it. I want to make one or two suggestions, and I would...

Water Supply (3 May 1944)

Mr Robert Morrison: In regard to research?

Water Supply (3 May 1944)

Mr Robert Morrison: I admit that the White Paper is an advance, but the rate of progress indicated and the definite steps that are to be taken are too slow and too long. They remind me of the famous music-hall turn of slow-motion boxing. The Minister himself mentioned what a long time this would take, but these are things which will not wait. They are most urgent. One does not want to be too pessimistic, but...

Water Supply (3 May 1944)

Mr Robert Morrison: I am willing to concede the point. My complaint is not generally against the policy of the White Paper, but against its slowness. Apart from the Bill on rural water supplies for this Session and the Water Undertakings Bill which is down for next Session, all the other things have to await the setting up of a Greater London Water Advisory Committee. That means years before anything is done....
