Orders of the Day — Doncaster Area Drainage Bill. (15 Mar 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: Indeed, not. There will be no levy except on those who are getting benefit from the drainage.

Orders of the Day — Doncaster Area Drainage Bill. (15 Mar 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: I think there is a case for giving representation to those who are directly liable to make payments. If the hon. Member can establish to the satisfaction of the Committee that there is a claim for the miners, I have no doubt that the Committee will be willing to consider it. We have taken the recommendation of the Special Commission and we have thought it desirable to give representation...

Orders of the Day — Doncaster Area Drainage Bill. (15 Mar 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: I do not suggest that this Bill is a normal Private Bill. It is urgent. There is need for immediate action, but it is perfectly clear in the machinery that it sets up that it is on all fours with many other areas which are dealt with by Orders made by the Department. We cannot make an Order for this authority, because it needs this special power of levying a charge on the owners of the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture.: Tithe Rent Charge (Collection). (7 Mar 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: During the passage through Parliament of the Tithe Act, 1925, which transferred ecclesiastical tithe rentcharge to Queen Anne's Bounty, the question of the collection of tithe rentcharge by individual incumbents was exhaustively discussed, and it was considered desirable to effect a divorce in the direct relationship between the clerical titheowner and the tithe payer, subject to the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland.: Foot-and-Mouth Disease. (5 Mar 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: The answer to the first part is in the affirmative. I much regret the loss suffered by all breeders of pedigree stock owing to foot-and-mouth disease, but I do not consider that it is practicable to take any further precautions to prevent the introduction of infection from abroad. I will circulate details of existing precautions in the OFFICIAL REPORT. I would add that the maximum penalty for...

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture.: Channel Tunnel. (4 Mar 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: Until the charges for conveyance of merchandise through the proposed Channel tunnel are announced, it would be difficult to form any reliable estimate as to how the facilities to be offered may compare with existing means of transporting produce to this country.

Orders of the Day — Fishing Industry (Credits). (4 Mar 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: I should like, first, to clear away a little misunderstanding that exists in the mind of the hon. Baronet the Member for Orkney and Shetland (Sir R. Hamilton). He suggested that the Prime Minister promised an ad hoc inquiry into the provision of credits for the fishing industry. What my right hon. Friend promised was that the necessity for these facilities would be the subject of inquiry. He...

Orders of the Day — Fishing Industry (Credits). (4 Mar 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: We are now, with fewer steamships, landing 250,000 cwts. more fish on the average than before the War. You cannot get away from that fact.

Orders of the Day — Fishing Industry (Credits). (4 Mar 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: The greater range of the ships and the greater catching power does not need a proportionate increase in crew. One can only go by the figures, and, owing to this development of larger tonnage and a wider range, we are employing fewer men and landing more fish. In the case of drifters, there is no doubt that there is greater catching power than the market at present are able to absorb. The...

Orders of the Day — Fishing Industry (Credits). (4 Mar 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: Unfortunately, even if you give them boats and gear on a pre-War basis, conditions have changed, and it would by no means follow that they would make the same living that they did at that time, and really it is not kind to encourage people to build boats unless they have a prospect of economic success.

Orders of the Day — Fishing Industry (Credits). (4 Mar 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: It is not possible to base ourselves on conditions before the War. We have really to be sure that the present-day conditions will justify a larger provision of fishing facilities than now exists. It is no use giving public money to any particular section of the industry unless there is a prospect of thereby achieving independence for those fishermen. It is quite true, as the hon. and gallant...

Orders of the Day — Fishing Industry (Credits). (4 Mar 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: Yes, it began under what seemed to be ideal conditions for the in-shore fishermen when there was very little competition from the deep-sea grounds, and when the personnel of the bigger boats had been absorbed into the fighting services, and when there was an unparalleled demand for fish supply. And even on that scheme, launched in 1917, nearly half the capital advanced by the State has beer lost.

Orders of the Day — Fishing Industry (Credits). (4 Mar 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: I have not so far drawn any conclusion. I am telling the House what happened. I think that that is the best way to enable hon. Members to judge. I will come to a later period. After the War, the Fisheries Department had a scheme for building standard vessels. They spent £19,050 in building those standard vessels, and they had again to write off nearly half, namely, £9,579. Certainly...

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture.: Small Holdings (Berkshire and West Sussex.) (28 Feb 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: The Berkshire County Council have provided 161 small holdings with an average area of 30 acres; the average rent is 34s. 7d. per acre. The figures for West Sussex are 122 small holdings with an average area of 17 acres and an average rent of 63s. 6d. per acre. Practically all the small holdings in West Sussex are situated in the south-west part of the county on soil of an exceptionally...

Oral Answers to Questions — Food Waste. (26 Feb 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: It is impossible to make any reliable estimate of the annual wastage of perishable produce. In the last three years nine new fruit and vegetable factories have been established. During the past year steps have been taken by my Department, in collaboration with the National Food Canning Council, to extend the fish canning industry. Other projects are under consideration. I am hopeful that the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Food Waste. (26 Feb 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: I am not sure whether sonic of them deal with fish, but we are examining the possibility of giving a more regular supply of bristlings, or young sprats, which we are told are required, if these factories are to start on a satisfactory basis.

Oral Answers to Questions — Food Waste. (26 Feb 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: I should be very much interested if the hon. Member could give me any suggestion as to how it could be done.

Oral Answers to Questions — Food Waste. (26 Feb 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: We have no reliable basis to go on. We cannot estimate.

Oral Answers to Questions — Food Waste. (26 Feb 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: With perishable produce it is inevitable, in seasons of glut, that there should be waste, and we are doing all that we can to improve market- ing arrangements so as to prevent these gluts and see that means are taken to improve access to markets.

Oral Answers to Questions — Food Waste. (26 Feb 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: There are proposals to deal with gluts at certain ports where at present there is no apparatus to turn fish into meal.
