Oral Answers to Questions — Unemployment.: Transfer of Workers. ( 2 May 1929)

Mr Robert Tomlinson: 37. asked the Minister of Labour if he is aware of the protest made by the Liskeard Rural District Council meeting on the transfer of miners to that area, seeing that there are a number of local unemployed men awaiting the opportunity to secure work; and whether he will take steps to see that miners are not transferred to localities already burdened with unemployment?

Oral Answers to Questions — Unemployment.: Transfer of Workers. ( 2 May 1929)

Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Air Force.: Empire Settlement. (29 Apr 1929)

Mr Robert Tomlinson: 17. asked the Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs if he will give, with reference to the South Wales area only, the number of women and girls who have been assisted to emigrate to the Dominions since 1st January, 1928, stating the countries to which they went; how many of them underwent any course of training and of what nature; and how many from that area are at present training for...

Oral Answers to Questions — Rating (Village Workshops). (18 Mar 1929)

Mr Robert Tomlinson: 28. asked the Minister of Health upon what grounds the occupiers of village workshops, such as blacksmiths, wheelwrights, carpenters and the like, in the county of Montgomery, are being refused the benefits of de-rating under the Rating and Valuation (Apportionment) Act because, being one-man businesses, they are not registered under the Factory and Workshop Acts; and whether, as the...

Orders of the Day — Unemployment Insurance (Transitional Provisions Amendment) Bill. (18 Mar 1929)

Mr Robert Tomlinson: I should like to join in the welcome given to this Bill. I notice that the Minister very strongly resented the suggestion that was made, or that he thought had been made, that pressure had been brought to bear by the Government on the Courts of Referees, but I should like to ask the Minister if he will be good enough to define very carefully what conditions must be complied with and what...

Orders of the Day — Northern Ireland Land Bill.: Clause 7. — (Determination of tenancies in holdings excluded on account of building value.) (15 Mar 1929)

Mr Robert Tomlinson: As the Under-Secretary has said, when this matter was before the Committee, I put down Amendments in the interests of the unbought tenants. The Under-Secretary pointed out at the time that if I pressed the Amendments the Government might regard this as a controversial Bill, and that that would jeopardise it. On the assurance given by the Under-Secretary that he would consider the matter...

Oral Answers to Questions — Police.: Pre-War Pensioners. (14 Feb 1929)

Mr Robert Tomlinson: 8. asked the Home Secretary whether he has considered a review of the position of pre-War police pensioners, with a view to abolish the means limit which now applies in respect of the pre-War increase of pensions?

Orders of the Day — Local Government Bill.: Eleventh Schedule. — (Provisions for securing allowance of rebates to selected traffics corresponding to rate relief of certain companies.) (14 Feb 1929)

Mr Robert Tomlinson: Perhaps there is more in this Amendment than hon. Members realise. It is quite true, as has been said here to-day, that as the Schedule now stands—I do not want to criticise the Schedule as a whole; I think it has been excellently drawn by the Ministers and those concerned—on this particular point it is open to Amendment. There are many farmers who use feeding-stuffs for their dairy...

Orders of the Day — Local Government Bill.: Eleventh Schedule. — (Provisions for securing allowance of rebates to selected traffics corresponding to rate relief of certain companies.) (14 Feb 1929)

Mr Robert Tomlinson: The point with which I was dealing was with regard to maize. I did not speak at all about grain grown in the surrounding district.

Orders of the Day — Local Government Bill.: Clause 7. — (Guardians committees and sub-committees.) (12 Feb 1929)

Mr Robert Tomlinson: I should like to say how greatly I appreciate the concession which the Parliamentary Secretary has announced. Increasing the number in some measure meets the criticism I brought against the Clause previously. I wanted to see the committee invested with greater power in addition to increasing its number. That has not been met, and I am afraid that in rural districts there will be still quite a...

part II: ELEVENTH SCHEDULE (Provisions for securing Allowance of Rebates to Selected Traffics corresponding to Rate-relief of certain Companies.) ( 1 Feb 1929)

Mr Robert Tomlinson: How will it be possible to distinguish between oatmeal which is intended for human consumption and oatmeal intended for poultry food? In regard to the words "grain, ground or flaked," is the Minister satisfied that it will not be interpreted as including wheat or oats, and that it must be "grain, ground or flaked," before it can get the allowance?

Orders of the Day — Local Government Bill.: FOURTH SCHEDULE (Rules for Calculations in respect of general Exchequer grants.) (31 Jan 1929)

Mr Robert Tomlinson: I share the fears that have been expressed by the hon. Member for Wellingborough (Mr. Cove). So far as this scheme affects urban and rural districts which suffer considerably from de-rating, I am afraid that the grant of a fixed rate will mean a very serious loss to these authorities. I want to ask the Minister two questions. I am afraid, as I look at this Schedule, that these rules for...

Orders of the Day — Local Government Bill.: FOURTH SCHEDULE (Rules for Calculations in respect of general Exchequer grants.) (31 Jan 1929)

Mr Robert Tomlinson: In this Schedule we are dealing with the rules for determining losses on account of rates.

Orders of the Day — Local Government Bill.: FOURTH SCHEDULE (Rules for Calculations in respect of general Exchequer grants.) (31 Jan 1929)

Mr Robert Tomlinson: The heading of Part IV of the Schedule is: Rules for calculating sums to be allocated to Districts on the basis of Population.

Orders of the Day — Local Government Bill.: FOURTH SCHEDULE (Rules for Calculations in respect of general Exchequer grants.) (31 Jan 1929)

Mr Robert Tomlinson: That is what I am attempting to do. I am afraid that the local authority will be in a very serious position if the county says, "No, it is not determined in the Bill that we shall make you a grant of 50 per cent. now that the Exchequer grant has fallen to 50 per cent." If the parish has to meet that loss, it will be in a very serious position when faced with the loss of rating brought about...

Orders of the Day — Local Government Bill.: Clause 72. — (Additional Exchequer grants to counties.) (24 Jan 1929)

Mr Robert Tomlinson: I wish to ask the Parliamentary Secretary why the general Exchequer grant is to be distributed to the counties and county boroughs on the basis of weighted population and distributed within the counties on the basis of actual population.

Orders of the Day — Local Government Bill.: Clause 54. — (Total exemption of agricultural land and buildings from rates.) (22 Jan 1929)

Mr Robert Tomlinson: I should like to draw attention to a statement made and the argument used by the hon. and learned Member for East Grinstead (Sir H. Cautley) in regard to the effect of the Agricultural Rates Acts of 1896 and 1923. It has been assumed that because there was no increase in rent after the passing of those Acts, the benefit went to the tenant farmer and not to the land- lord. I take strong...

Clause 30. — (Contributions by county councils to county roads maintained by urban district councils.) (19 Dec 1928)

Mr Robert Tomlinson: May I ask if the widening in this case would include the acquisition of land for the widening? I recall a case in an urban district with which I have been associated all my life, where the district council were widening a main road and the county council did not wish to incur any expenditure on the acquisition of land—on which there was a good deal of property—saying that this was...

Clause 30. — (Contributions by county councils to county roads maintained by urban district councils.) (19 Dec 1928)

Mr Robert Tomlinson: May I ask whether widening includes acquiring property for the purposes of the widening?

Orders of the Day — Civil Estimates, Supplementary Estimate, 1928.: Railway Freight Rebates. (30 Nov 1928)

Mr Robert Tomlinson: I would like to say a word about Part II of the Eleventh Schedule. I am sorry the Minister of Agriculture is not on the bench. I would have liked to compliment him on the drawing up of this Schedule, which, in my judgment, will bring the maximum of benefit to agriculture. There is one point, however, to which I would like to draw attention. In the Schedule are the words "Treacle for cattle...
