Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce.: Eggs (Marking). (25 Feb 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: In only one case has the National Mark Committee taken action in the direction referred to by my hon. Friend. This was the case of a packer who had infringed the conditions of the scheme both in regard to grading and the nature of the packages used. His certificate of authorisation has not been revoked but has been suspended until such time as the National Mark Commit- tee is satisfied that...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce.: Eggs (Marking). (25 Feb 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: Oh, yes. Both the Department and the Committee are doing everything in their power to keep up the reputation of the national mark by seeing that the grading and packing is guaranteed.

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture.: Foot-and-Mouth Disease. (21 Feb 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: No outbreaks in recent years have been attributed to imported hay and straw used as packing materials. My hon. Friend's proposal was fully considered by the Departmental Committee on Foot-and-Mouth Disease, who in their Report issued in 1925 stated that to impose a prohibition or to require the destruction at the port of all hay and straw used as packing materials would involve an...

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture.: Foot-and-Mouth Disease. (21 Feb 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: A Committee has gone into that question, and they found that there was no evidence of outbreaks around towns where this packing material was likely to cause danger, and until we have some evidence we really could not justify putting our industrial production to the inconvenience of such a regulation.

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture.: Foot-and-Mouth Disease. (21 Feb 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: I speak subject to correction, but I think there is a regulation in the United States, in Canada, the Irish Free State and other countries imposing an obligation to destroy, or to import with certificates of disinfection, and that is a different matter. I do not think we can impose such a regulation without evidence.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce.: Bracken Disease. (18 Feb 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: Investigations into the causes of outbreaks of alleged bracken disease are in progress at Leeds University and in Scotland. An investigation of this character is necessarily slow and it is too soon to say whether any action can usefully be taken on the lines indicated in the question. I am, however, sending my hon. and gallant Friend a small pamphlet which gives some information on the subject.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce.: Bracken Disease. (18 Feb 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: The outbreak has occurred in various parts of the country. The disease is thought to be due to a fungus, but further inquiries are being made as to whether that is indeed the cause of the disease, or whether there is some other cause which weakens the bracken and enables the fungus to take root.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce.: Bracken Disease. (18 Feb 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: That matter will, of course, be examined in the inquiries that are being made. The danger of introducing any of these viruses is that they may affect valuable plants as well as bracken.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce.: Bracken Disease. (18 Feb 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: I am afraid it will not put an end to the bracken.

Oral Answers to Questions — Fishing Industry.: Credit Facilities. (13 Feb 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: I have been asked to reply. The Fishery Departments in Great Britain are continually in touch with the industry in all its branches. I am satisfied that the fishing industry does not lack credit facilities, and that such facilities cannot usefully be placed at its disposal by the Government. The Government is always ready to consider any practical suggestions for meeting specific needs of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Fishing Industry.: Credit Facilities. (13 Feb 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: We have carefully examined the matter. I remember that the hon. and gallant Member for Central Hull (Lieut.-Commander Kenworthy) was going to bring to me a deputation on the subject, and the Hull Trawlers' Association passed a resolution that credits were neither needed nor desirable, and the matter then dropped. I think that, in view of the evidence we have had, it would be ill-timed to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Fishing Industry.: Credit Facilities. (13 Feb 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: We are always willing to listen to any representations, but I would remind hon. Members that when there was a scheme in force for the provision of credits in Scotland and for the provision of nets very small demand was made on it.

Oral Answers to Questions — Fishing Industry.: Credit Facilities. (13 Feb 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: I think it might well be that people would be glad to have free grants, hut the question is one about credits. Credits on any self-supporting principle do not meet with any considerable demand.

Orders of the Day — Local Government Bill: Clause 69. — (Adaptation of enactments relating to drainage rates.) (13 Feb 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: Am I in order in explaining that this Amendment does not in any way increase the liability on a ratepayer?

Oral Answers to Questions — Post Office.: Land Reclamation (Humber). (12 Feb 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the reply I gave to the question on the same subject which was put to me yesterday by the hon. and gallant Member for Central Hull (Lieut.-Commander Kenworthy).

Oral Answers to Questions — Post Office.: Land Reclamation (Humber). (12 Feb 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: I think very shortly.

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture.: Credits (Poultry Farmers). (11 Feb 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: The answer is in the affirmative.

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture.: Imported Barley. (6 Feb 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: I am fully aware of the effects of the imports of foreign barley. With regard to the second part of the question I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the reply given on behalf of the President of the Board of Trade to my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Louth (Lieut.-Colonel Heneage), on the 30th January last.

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture.: German Wheat (Imports). (4 Feb 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: I am aware that complaints have been made with regard to the importation of German wheat, but there is no action that I can usefully take in the matter.

part II: Tenth Schedule. — (Adaptation of Enactments.) (1 Feb 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: I beg to move, in page 125, line 14, at the end, to insert the words: 12. Sub-section (2) of section seventeen of the Tithe Act, 1925, shall, for the purposes of any application for the redemption of any lay tithe rentcharge on any land made by the owner of the land on or after the first day of October, nineteen hundred and twenty-nine, have effect as if— (a) for the words 'then if the land...
