Orders of the Day — Local Government (Boundary Commission) Bill: Clause 3. — (Exercise of powers of Commission.) ( 5 Jun 1945)

Mr Robert Morgan: I support the Amendment moved by my hon. and learned Friend the Member for Ilford (Mr. G. Hutchinson). All we ask is that the right which these local authorities and non-county boroughs have had in the past shall not be taken away from them. I do not want to delay the reply of the Parliamentary Secretary, but I want to be able to go back to my own Division and say to these corporate boroughs...

Orders of the Day — Local Government (Boundary Commission) Bill: Clause 3. — (Exercise of powers of Commission.) ( 5 Jun 1945)

Mr Robert Morgan: Hitherto local authorities have had the right of appeal direct to Parliament. Will they have that right when this Bill is passed?

Orders of the Day — Local Government (Boundary Commission) Bill: Clause 3. — (Exercise of powers of Commission.) ( 5 Jun 1945)

Mr Robert Morgan: May I have a reply to the point I put a few moments ago? Does the Minister mean that if the areas of non-county boroughs are to be affected and altered by the Boundary Commission they have no right of appeal to Parliament?

Teachers' Salaries (20 Feb 1945)

Mr Robert Morgan: They will be still above the maximum scale.

Teachers' Salaries (20 Feb 1945)

Mr Robert Morgan: Is he an assistant teacher?

Teachers' Salaries (20 Feb 1945)

Mr Robert Morgan: Unfortunately I have had to be out of the House during the last two or three speeches, but I welcome the opportunity of intervening for a few moments. I would like to follow the hon. Lady the Member for West Fulham (Dr. Summerskill) on the question of equal pay, whose quests on this point I have supported on other occasions, and got into very hot water for so doing. There is a great deal to...

Orders of the Day — Requisitioned Land and War Works Bill (13 Feb 1945)

Mr Robert Morgan: One can imagine a case in which some of these requisitioned factories are producing large sums in the shape of educational trusts, or Chancery trusts, running into thousands of pounds per year. Will there be a right of public inquiry and adequate compensation before they can be acquired?

Orders of the Day — ROAD TRANSPORT LIGHTING (CYCLES) BILL [Lords] ( 2 Feb 1945)

Mr Robert Morgan: Does my hon. Friend say that in his experience as a motor driver he does not find a red lamp a great asset for the protection of all concerned on the roads?

Orders of the Day — Royal Air Force (Education Officers) ( 2 Feb 1945)

Mr Robert Morgan: I am obliged to my hon. and learned Friend for the very clear way in which he has stated the case on behalf of these education officers. He has saved the House considerable time, as it is unnecessary for me to go over the ground again. That is not to say that I am not au fait with all the facts of the case. For four years the disabilities, I might almost say the humiliation, which some of...

Oral Answers to Questions — National War Effort: One-man Businesses ( 2 Nov 1944)

Mr Robert Morgan: asked the Minister of Labour whether owners of one-man businesses are still being called up; whether it is still essential to call up men of 34 years of age whose retention in their civilian work is recommended by the local tribunal; and on what work such men, when called up, are employed.

Orders of the Day — >clause 1. — (Designation of areas of extensive war damage, and of land needed for providing for replacements in redevelopment thereof.) ( 4 Oct 1944)

Mr Robert Morgan: I intervene only to say that I was going to support my hon. Friend in his Amendment, but I think it very important that we should get a clear-cut issue about the land required. I am not thinking only of good agricultural land, but of land which is now cultivated and in a poor way. I am talking about farm land in an area where they might want a school, or where a large part of the land might...

Clause 27. — (Special provisions as to religious education in aided schools and in special agreement schools.) (27 Jul 1944)

Mr Robert Morgan: I rise to support what the President has said so well. If there had been any objection coming from the teaching profession I think I should have been directly informed. While I want to say there is no objection, as far as I am concerned, from the teachers as a body, I heartily agree with the President, who said that they welcome the very excellent agreed syllabuses and the guidance and...

Education Bill (27 Jul 1944)

Mr Robert Morgan: I rise to oppose the Amendment to the proposed new Clause and support the Minister in the statement he has made. I regard the Amendment which has come from another place as a very wholesome one. When yearly reports come forward showing how this magnificent Bill is working in the country, if we adopt the Lords Amendment we shall be able to say to the Minister, "Why have you not intervened in...

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

Mr Robert Morgan: It ought to be at any cost.

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

Mr Robert Morgan: Do I understand that if water or drainage cannot be provided at a reasonable cost in a certain area, circumstances would remain as they were in the district?

Education Bill: First Schedule. — (Local administration.) (11 May 1944)

Mr Robert Morgan: I would like to take this opportunity of expressing my appreciation of the way in which the Parliamentary Secretary has replied to this very difficult Amendment, but I do not understand now whether he is opposing, or going to accept, the Amendment in any form. I rather gather that it is the intention of the Board to make clear by Regulation or memorandum that they agree at any rate with the...

Orders of the Day — Education Bill: New Clause. — (Remuneration of Teachers.) ( 9 May 1944)

Mr Robert Morgan: I oppose the Amendment. I have to do so very carefully because of the Rules of Order, but I think the Committee ought to be informed of what is at the back of this Amendment. It is obvious from the speakers who initiated the discussion that it is an attempt by a body of schoolmasters, called the National Association of Schoolmasters, to force their way on to the Burnham Committee. I venture...

Domestic Workers ( 4 May 1944)

Mr Robert Morgan: I want to make a friendly intervention in the Debate. There is a special difficulty with regard to the paucity of domestic servants. In my own county there have been domestic servants who have been happy in their work, and who have been directed by the Department to factories, where there was no need for them—at least, that is what I have been told. I cannot say how true it is, but I can...

Pensions (Increase) Bill: Clause 2. — (Special provisions as to increase of pensions payable under the Superannuation Acts.) (18 Apr 1944)

Mr Robert Morgan: I support the Amendment, because I think the case for an extra remuneration to these pensioners has been fully demonstrated on both sides of the Committee. If the State is to regard itself as a model employer, the appeal of the hon. Member for Rugby (Mr. W. J. Brown) will not fall on deaf ears. Whatever the hon. Member said about the Civil Service applies with double force to the teaching...

Orders of the Day — Education Bill: New Clause. — (Prohibition of employment of schoolchildren.) ( 4 Apr 1944)

Mr Robert Morgan: As an ex-teacher who had charge of a large number of boys at a bluecoat school, I know something about this subject. I am quite sure that if the Noble Lord had had the same experience as I have had with poor boys and found them coming to school tired out—
