Civil Estimates, 1933.: Department of Health for Scotland. (22 Jun 1933)

Mr William Stewart: He cannot expect the new area suddenly to cope with some thousands of people seeking relief. Rather than the vote of censure being on the Secretary of State for Scotland, it should be on the hon. Member for having misled and misdirected these unfortunate people and having brought misery, discomfort and disappointment to their homes. I have risen to associate myself with those who have offered...

Civil Estimates, 1933.: Department of Health for Scotland. (22 Jun 1933)

Mr William Stewart: That is not my suggestion. It might be that some pressure was found necessary and, as a result, there was a marked and considerable increase in the number of houses built. That is excellent, but my complaint is that sufficient pressure is not brought to bear on backward authorities. There is power now to exercise that pressure. The report contains examples of the powers in case of default...

Orders of the Day — Sea-Fishing Industry Bill. (27 Jun 1933)

Mr William Stewart: Here is a very important point which I commend to the hon. Member for Govan (Mr. N. Maclean). They say in their official statement: Co-operation among British farmers can only achieve partial results in cases such as wheat and meat, where the market is dominated by imported supplies. There is, if it means anything, a policy involving some measure of control of imported foodstuffs. This Bill...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Forestry Commission. (3 Jul 1933)

Mr William Stewart: As it happens, in my constituency there is a minimum, but in very many cases, indeed in the majority of cases, the wage paid is a good deal higher than that minimum. The hon. Member took credit, and rightly, for the stand made by one of his late leaders, Mr. Keir Hardie, in advancing the cause of afforestation. He was entitled to do that, but I am equally entitled to say that, while Mr. Keir...

Mr William Stewart: 27. (for Sir IAN MACPHERSON) asked the Secretary of State for Scotland when he is likely to give his decision as to whether there is to be an inquiry into illegal trawling in Scotland, as suggested by the representa- tions made to him by the hon. Member for Inverness-shire (Sir M. Macdonald)?

Orders of the Day — Sea-Fishing Industry Bill.: Clause 1 — (Regulation of landing of foreign-caught sea fish.) (13 Jul 1933)

Mr William Stewart: No. It says: all such steps … as are practicable and necessary for the efficient reorganisation and so on. It is not just a step or two steps, but all steps. Hon. Members are asking the Commission, first of all, to report in one year, which is asking a great deal more than is reasonable; and, further, they are asking the industry within the same period completely to reorganise itself, or at...

Orders of the Day — Sea-Fishing Industry Bill.: Clause 8. — (Definition of terms and exercise of powers.) (13 Jul 1933)

Mr William Stewart: I cannot help feeling, after having sat in the House for the whole of this Debate, that a large portion of the discussion has been unreal. The House has spent a good deal of time discussing Amendments which, in my humble opinion, have no practical basis of justice. I do not in the least mean disrespect to hon. Members and still less to this House, but I confess that it makes one despair of...

Orders of the Day — Sea-Fishing Industry Bill.: Clause 8. — (Definition of terms and exercise of powers.) (13 Jul 1933)

Mr William Stewart: I copied the quotation from the report, but it may be on some other page. I will check it and let the hon. Gentleman know, but the words I have read are precisely the words of the report. This Bill is not the beginning and end of the fish legislation of this Government, or of this Parliament, or of this country. It is only the beginning. We are only preparing the net to catch the trade of the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland.: Red Deer (Control). (14 Nov 1933)

Mr William Stewart: Does the right hon. Gentleman recall that fully six months ago the Under-Secretary of State for Scotland announced that this Bill was under consideration, and, in view of the very serious damage done by this nuisance, will he give us an assurance that all expedition will be shown in preparing and submitting this Bill?

Sea-Fishing Industry Act, 1933. (15 Nov 1933)

Mr William Stewart: I can give the hon. and gallant Member figures. Those men are returning now suffering from precisely the trouble that my hon. and gallant Friend has described. With his plea for a more optimistic and more strenuous development of the herring industry I am in entire accord. There is no one who has done more for the herring industry in Scotland than my hon. and gallant Friend and there is no...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland.: Farm Servants (Weekly Half-Holiday). (6 Dec 1933)

Oral Answers to Questions — Pishing Industry.: Scotland. (19 Dec 1933)

Mr William Stewart: Does not the right hon. Gentleman agree that local provision to cover the distress will necessarily place a greater burden on local ratepayers, who are themselves in many cases distressed fishermen, and in that case, will he not consider offering special financial assistance?

Oral Answers to Questions — Pishing Industry.: Institutions (Herring Ration). (19 Dec 1933)

Mr William Stewart: 45. asked the Prime Minister if, in order to bring relief to the fishing industry, he will cause instructions to be addressed to the various departments concerned to ensure that a weekly ration of herring is included in the menu of all State-controlled and State-supported institutions, such as the Army, Navy and Air Force, Ministry of Labour centres, schools, &c.; and if he will cause...
