Oral Answers to Questions — Dartmoor Ponies (Export). (8 Nov 1928)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: That, apparently, refers to sales here, whereas the question on the Paper refers to sales abroad. I do not think I could answer without notice.

Oral Answers to Questions — Dartmoor Ponies (Export). (8 Nov 1928)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: I do not think that there is any case on the ground of cruelty for preventing the export of them any snore than of other horses.

Oral Answers to Questions — River Penk (Pollution). (11 Jul 1928)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: The investigation which I instituted was concerned solely with the question whether cattle had suffered through drinking water from the River Penk. The report I obtained is inconclusive on this point. With regard to the wider question of the causes of pollution of the River Penk, I would refer the hon. Member to my right hon. Friend the Minister of Health.

Oral Answers to Questions — River Penk (Pollution). (11 Jul 1928)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: Yes, and I understand the Corporation of Wolverhampton have undertaken to pay compensation for damage to fishery interests.

Oral Answers to Questions — River Penk (Pollution). (11 Jul 1928)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: The whole of the pollution is most unfortunate, but there is going to be another hearing by the official of the Ministry of Health. If hon. Members want further information, they had better put down questions to that Department.

Orders of the Day — Agricultural Credits Bill.: New Clause. — (Acquisition for public purposes of land on which a loan has been made.) (10 Jul 1928)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: The proposal of the new Clause would work with great injustice against the interests of the tenant farmer who, by this scheme, is put in a position to buy his land with State help. Let us see how the new Clause would affect his position. It is assumed by the two hon. Members that the fact that this source of credit will be open to the tenant farmers will bring further competition for land...

Orders of the Day — Agricultural Credits Bill.: New Clause. — (Acquisition for public purposes of land on which a loan has been made.) (10 Jul 1928)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: The State will facilitate the advance of capital to enable the tenant to buy. The tenant will pay full value to the landlord, and if there be any enhanced value it is the landlord who will get that enhanced value and the tenant who will pay it. The proposal of the hon. Members is not that we should take this enhanced value from the landlord who has received it, but that we should take it from...

Orders of the Day — Agricultural Credits Bill.: New Clause. — (Acquisition for public purposes of land on which a loan has been made.) (10 Jul 1928)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: If the hon. Member will read his new Clause he will see that there is in it nothing about improving land. The Clause deals with land which has been acquired by means of a loan, and there is nothing about improvements. The man who would be responsible for this loan would be the purchaser, not the seller. The seller, who will have received this hypothetically increased value, will not have to...

Orders of the Day — Agricultural Credits Bill.: New Clause. — (Acquisition for public purposes of land on which a loan has been made.) (10 Jul 1928)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: The right hon. Member for Norfolk North (Mr. Buxton) read an extract from Mr. Enfield's report on page 59, but he will find Mr. Enfield's opinion of the scheme, described in the passage referred to, is to the effect that: It would appear to require no further legislation. I am strongly in favour of such schemes if the societies can work them out, and I am satisfied that no further legislation...

Orders of the Day — Agricultural Credits Bill.: New Clause. — (Acquisition for public purposes of land on which a loan has been made.) (10 Jul 1928)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: We have very wide powers, as the right hon. Gentleman knows, to help co-operative societies. When the right hon. Gentleman was at the Ministry of Agriculture he went into this matter and took a large Vote, of which I am sorry to say great advantage was not taken by the societies it was intended to help. I should not like to answer without notice whether we can take shares. I do not see why we...

Orders of the Day — Rabbits Bill. (28 Jun 1928)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: The Bill has been criticised this evening from two points of view. My hon. and learned Friend the Member for Rochester (Sir G. Hohler) thinks we ought to have given legal redress in preference to leaving the damage done by rabbits on a neighbour's land to be dealt with by the county council. That solution was carefully considered by a Select Committee in another place last year, and in our...

Orders of the Day — Rabbits Bill. (28 Jun 1928)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: We did not propose that the County Council should come in and exterminate rabbits when no complaint was made.

Orders of the Day — Rabbits Bill. (28 Jun 1928)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: Yes, but the Bill of last year certainly did not go as far as the proposal now made by the right hon. Gentleman the Member for North Norfolk goes, as I understand it. We deliberately restricted the power of making complaints to those who were affected. We think that it would be undesirable to allow the busybody to make complaints to the council in the way which has been suggested in previous...

Oral Answers to Questions — Finance Bill.: DR. Voronoff's Experiments. (21 Jun 1928)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: It is at present impossible to add anything to the Report of the British scientific mission sent last year to Algeria. This Report was published by the Stationery Office in January last. As recommended in that Report, further investigations are proceeding in this country, but it must take some years before definite conclusions can be reached.

Oral Answers to Questions — Finance Bill.: DR. Voronoff's Experiments. (21 Jun 1928)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: I do not think I should summarise their Report; I can only refer the right hon. Gentleman to it. He will find that they express no opinion one way or the other. They wish for further information.

Oral Answers to Questions — Finance Bill.: DR. Voronoff's Experiments. (21 Jun 1928)
