Orders of the Day — Supply.: Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries. (2 May 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: I can only go by the published programme. The whole argument of hon. Members opposite for years past has been that the British farmer is incompetent, and is getting a miserably low yield from his land, and they produce certain absolutely fallacious figures of comparison with foreign countries where conditions are different. The whole object to which that argument leads up, in innumerable...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries. (2 May 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: £4,500,000.

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries. (2 May 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: I have not the figures but the Supplementary Estimate for this amounts to £4,100,000. I cannot give the actual figures here, but certainly £3,500,000 is too small.

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries. (2 May 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: Yes.

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries. (2 May 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: There will be no valuation for the land. That valuation will no longer take place.

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries. (2 May 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: Is not the hon. Member aware that prices have gone down all over the world, and unless he is prepared to adopt some policy of protection we cannot possibly avoid a reflection of world prices in the matter of British agriculture.

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries. (2 May 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: Is the hon. Gentleman aware that it does not rest with the Government of the day, but with the Opposition?

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries. (2 May 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: The hon. Member for Eddisbury (Mr. R. J. Russell), in his most interesting maiden speech, made one or two remarks which seem to me to need an answer. The hon. Member criticised the Government for not having given the House an opportunity of discussing the question of agricultural subsidies. It would be very unfair if that reflection on the Government were allowed to be repeated, because the...

Orders of the Day — DONCASTER AREA DRAINAGE (Re-Committed) BILL.: Clause 1. — (Constitution of Doncaster Drainage District and Doncaster District Drainage Board.) (2 May 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: I beg to move, in page 2, line 6, after the word "Goole," to insert the words: but not including the Murrain Lane drain outfall sluice. The property of the Aire and Calder Navigation will be excluded from the authority on the new Board, but the Murram Lane drain has an outfall sluice running through their property, which should be under the control of the Board, and I move this Amendment to...

Orders of the Day — DONCASTER AREA DRAINAGE (Re-Committed) BILL.: Clause 1. — (Constitution of Doncaster Drainage District and Doncaster District Drainage Board.) (2 May 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: The question of health really does not arise. The proposal is to leave out merely those areas that are used for the purpose of the extraction of peat. They will get no benefit from drainage. I cannot accept the Amendment because I am sure the proper course is to adopt the provisions of the West Riding of Yorkshire Act, which this Bill largely replaces.

Orders of the Day — DONCASTER AREA DRAINAGE (Re-Committed) BILL.: Clause 1. — (Constitution of Doncaster Drainage District and Doncaster District Drainage Board.) (2 May 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: Really, the hon. Gentleman's arguments are not convincing. There may be a great deal of housing. If housing takes place in any part of this moor it would cease to be used for the extraction of peat, and therefore would be liable to be brought in. If it is fit for any other purpose, including housing, it comes in, and while it is not used for any other purpose than the extraction of peat there...

Orders of the Day — DONCASTER AREA DRAINAGE (Re-Committed) BILL.: Clause 1. — (Constitution of Doncaster Drainage District and Doncaster District Drainage Board.) (2 May 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: The hon. Member suspects a nefarious purpose which does not exist. It is common form in all these Acts to make a saving for subsequent enactments, and it is for the general convenience. There is a volume of general drainage law which is applied in these Bills. That law must be kept up-to-date, and we hope shortly to make some fundamental changes which will be for the benefit of drainage areas...

Orders of the Day — DONCASTER AREA DRAINAGE (Re-Committed) BILL.: Clause 1. — (Constitution of Doncaster Drainage District and Doncaster District Drainage Board.) (2 May 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: We do not think that the existing drainage laws are up-to-date, and we intend drastically to modify them.

Oral Answers to Questions — Horses (Export). (29 Apr 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: During the six months ended 31st March, 1929, 4,959 horses were shipped to the Continent from ports in Great Britain, of which 2,607 went to Holland. Inquiries show that of the latter number approximately 90 per cent. were slaughtered on arrival. None of the horses exported to France or Belgium were intended for slaughter.

Oral Answers to Questions — Horses (Export). (29 Apr 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: Our information was that they were not intended for slaughter in France and Belgium. There has been a great change in the traffic, and there are now three times as many horse car-cases taken to France and Belgium as there were in 1920, and they are encouraged only to bring live horses in if they are wanted to work.

Oral Answers to Questions — Horses (Export). (29 Apr 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: I have answered it. I said inquiries show what percentage were slaughtered. We can only give the figures which we have been able to obtain.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport.: Royal Veterinary College. (25 Apr 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: No, Sir. I am unable to come to & decision on this question pending the receipt of the Report of the Committee, to which reference was made in the answer given on my behalf to the question put my my Noble Friend on the 14th February last.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport.: Royal Veterinary College. (25 Apr 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: The Committee are still hearing evidence though I understand they are approaching the end of their labours.

Oral Answers to Questions — Post Office.: Roundway Downs. (23 Apr 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: I have gone very carefully into the matters which my hon. Friend has previously brought to my notice in a personal interview, and to which he refers in the question. They involve points of some difficulty and are the subject of litigation pending in the High Court. It would therefore be improper for me to make any statement bearing on the merits of the case. I may say, however, that the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce.: British Meat (Marking). (22 Apr 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: The Ministry has in hand the preparation of a voluntary scheme for grading and marking the three top qualities of home-killed meat on wholesale meat markets. The National Federation of Meat Traders' Associations has assisted in defining the three grades and the Ministry is now considering in conjunction with the National Farmers' Union and distributors' organisations, where and in what way...
