Oral Answers to Questions — Government Departments.: Conditions of Labour, India (Royal Commission). (31 Jan 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: With the hon. Member's permission, I will circulate in the OFFICIAL REPORT a statement giving particulars of the imports of canned and bottled vegetables and fruits for the year 1927. I regret that, except in the case of tomatoes and pineapples, the available statistics do not show separately the imports of the various vegetables or fruits. Tomatoes are, of course, extensively grown in this...

Oral Answers to Questions — Post Office.: Fish (Marketing). (29 Jan 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: The Marketing Branch of the Ministry of Agriculture deals, of course, primarily with the grading of agricultural produce, and that problem is not so acute in the fishing industry, in the case of which, I believe, there is already a very efficient system of grading. The problem there is rather that of quick distribution, preservation, and proper handling. Those questions are being explored by...

Oral Answers to Questions — Post Office.: Fish (Marketing). (29 Jan 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: We have started a very extensive scheme of sale and grading under the National Mark, which has been taken up very keenly by various branches of the agricultural industry.

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: The Government assists the establishment and encouragement of co-operative buying and selling among fishermen by means of grants from the Development Fund to the Fisheries Organisation Society, on the governing body of which the Ministry is represented. The latest report of the society, referring to the year 1927, states that there is a steady development of the co-operative movement among...

Oral Answers to Questions — Post Office.: Fish (Marketing). (29 Jan 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: I am afraid I could not answer that question without notice. There is an increase in the number of societies which work under the parent organisation, and the total sales have increased, but I cannot give the distribution throughout the country.

Oral Answers to Questions — Post Office.: Fish (Marketing). (29 Jan 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: I do not believe that there is any appreciable amount of fish destroyed, certainly not for the purpose of keeping up a high price. Where fish is landed in a state which makes it unfit for human consumption, it has, of course, to be diverted to other purposes.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce.: Norfolk Oyster Fishery. (28 Jan 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: I am aware that the development of oyster fisheries in Norfolk has recently been the subject of discussion. The success of such an enterprise will depend upon factors as to which, I think, the best advice can be given by practical oyster planters. If and when the assistance of the Ministry is required, I shall be glad to give it. Meanwhile, I am following the discussion with sympathetic interest.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce.: Norfolk Oyster Fishery. (28 Jan 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: We shall be glad to give any technical advice at our disposal, but we cannot, as a Ministry, take any active part in the preliminary stages, because we have certain judicial functions to carry out before any scheme can come into effect in making a special order and hearing objections.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce.: Norfolk Oyster Fishery. (28 Jan 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: I believe there were oyster fisheries in Norfolk, but, as far as I know, the conditions remain unaltered, and if the oyster cultivation could be reestablished it might lead to a valuable industry.

Oral Answers to Questions — Unemployment.: Allotments. (23 Jan 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: Assuming that the right hon. and gallant Gentleman desires the information to include boroughs as well as urban districts properly so called, the answer is that 82 borough councils and 78 urban district councils purchased 1,954 acres of land for allotments during the years 1925, 1926 and 192V. It is not possible to say what proportion of these purchases was effected before the 7th August,...

Orders of the Day — Local Government Bill.: Clause 57. — (Valuation of agricultural dwelling-houses.) (22 Jan 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: I think the right hon. and gallant Member is under a misapprehension as to the effect of the Clause.

Orders of the Day — Local Government Bill.: Clause 57. — (Valuation of agricultural dwelling-houses.) (22 Jan 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: No, but I would ask the right hon. and gallant Gentleman to read it. He would then see that there is no new concession on these houses of farmers, and on the houses occupied by their workers. If he will look at the end of the Clause he will see, if he compares it with the words which I will read, that it repeats the law laid down for the valuation of these premises under the Act of 1896.

Orders of the Day — Local Government Bill.: Clause 57. — (Valuation of agricultural dwelling-houses.) (22 Jan 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: No. The Act of 1896 made provision that in order to give effect to the agricultural rates relief the farm houses should be valued on exactly the same basis as that laid down in this Clause. The valuation had to be split so that the farmer could get the benefit of the remission of half his rates on agricultural land, which he would not. get if when you split the assessment you placed an...

Orders of the Day — Local Government Bill.: Clause 57. — (Valuation of agricultural dwelling-houses.) (22 Jan 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: What I mean is an excessive valuation as compared with the proportion that that valuation bore to the total value before the concession was made. The right hon. Gentleman says that we are giving a new concession. That is not the purpose of the Clause. It is to maintain the existing system, under which this particular form of house property is given the favourable assessment which it has...

Orders of the Day — Local Government Bill.: Clause 57. — (Valuation of agricultural dwelling-houses.) (22 Jan 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: The Act of 1896 says: Where any hereditament consists partly of agricultural land and partly of buildings, the gross estimated rental of the buildings when valued separately, in pursuance of this Act, for the agricutural land, shall, while the buildings are used only for the cultivation of the said land, be calculated not on structural cost, but on a rent at which they would be expected to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Turkey.: Crown Salmon Fishings. (20 Dec 1928)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: The answer to the first and second parts of the question is in the affirmative. The Letterfearn fishings were advertised for tender in July last; two offers only were received: one from the two ex-service men to whom the right hon. Gentleman refers, and the other on behalf of the proprietors of the Kintail, Glenshiel and Inverinate Estates jointly. The latter offer was substantially the...
