Mr George Hall: 101. asked the Minister of Health whether his attention has been called to a -Resolution passed at the last meeting of the urban district councils of Aberavon and Mountain Ash, expressing the opinion that the shortage of houses is largely due to the high cost of building material arising from the monopoly of the combines of building material manufacturers and merchants and urging the...

Mr George Hall: 64. asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that a number of dwelling houses, places of worship and public buildings in Aber- dare and district have been seriously damaged by subsidence caused by mining operations, some of the houses being so unsafe that they are almost uninhabitable; and will he consider the advisability of asking the Committee now dealing with this question to...

Orders of the Day — Nationalisation of Mines and Minerals Bill. (16 May 1924)

Mr George Hall: I beg to move, "That the Bill be now read a Second time." I realise the importance of asking for the Second Reading of an important Bill such as this. I should much have preferred that someone with greater knowledge of the subject and with more experience in the House should have undertaken this task. It will be impossible to deal with the subject as one would like to deal with it here to-day...

Orders of the Day — Nationalisation of Mines and Minerals Bill. (16 May 1924)

Mr George Hall: I was referring to the question of barrier coal and to the evidence given by Sir Richard Redmayne, who said: The loss from barrier coal in this country amounts to between 3,500,000,000 and 4,000,000,000 tons. Much of the latter would be recoverable under a system of collective working of the collieries. He further said: A consolidation of royalties doing away with the necessity for boundaries...

Orders of the Day — Adjournment of the House (Easter).: Shipbuilding and Coal Industries. (9 Apr 1925)

Mr George Hall: While we agree as to the situation of shipbuilding in this country, and that the figures given by the hon. Member for Chertsey (Sir P. Richardson) are appalling, still we find that the mining situation is even worse from the point of view of unemployment. In February this year there was an increase of 100,000 unemployed in the mining industry as compared with February of last year, and...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: New Clause. — (Further relief from Entertainments Duty for certain philanthropic or charitable entertainments.) (22 Jun 1925)

Mr George Hall: I beg to second the Motion. The purpose of this Amendment is to exempt from Entertainments Duty those charitable performances conducted by musical and other organisations or associations throughout the country. For some years this question engaged the attention of the House and concessions have been made. First of all, the amount that was allowed for the expenses, before any abatement could...

Oral Answers to Questions — Coal Industry.: Wages Agreement. (8 Jul 1925)

Mr George Hall: 43. asked the Prime Minister whether he is aware that the terms now offered by the coal owners to the miners will mean a large reduction in the already low wages at present paid; and will he state what action the Government propose to take to secure to the coal miner a wage that will place him in the same position as he enjoyed in 1914?

Orders of the Day — Unemployment (Coal Industry). (8 Jul 1925)

Mr George Hall: I am rather pleased that some little latitude has been given in dealing with this important question. The industry we have been discussing to-day has been rightly described as one of if not the most important industry in this country. We are on the eve of what I consider to be one of the most serious industrial disputes with which this country has been faced. I have not had much encouragement...

Orders of the Day — Unemployment (Coal Industry). (8 Jul 1925)

Mr George Hall: The result has been that instead of a reduction in the cost per ton for wages, timbers and stores—these items include directors' and manager' salaries—there has been an actual increase from March, 1921, from 1s. 7¼d. per ton to not less than 2s. l0d. per ton. That really means that there are other considerations and other reductions of wages which ought to be taken into account in...

Mr George Hall: I beg to move, in page 1, line 14, at the end, to insert the words and as though the words 'if in addition to satisfying the requirements aforesaid he also proves' and the words following to the end of the Sub-section were omitted. The importance of this Amendment can only be seen by hon. Members if they refer to the 1924 Unemployment Insurance (No. 2) Act. Sub-section (3) of Section 1 of...

Orders of the Day — Rating and Valuation Bill. (24 Nov 1925)

Mr George Hall: I want to ask a question as to whether these allowances which have been referred to are temporary allowances on account of subsidences in connection with colliery workings. I would also like to know how far this pro vision will prevent local authorities giving temporary relief?

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Mines Department of the Board of Trade. (15 Feb 1926)

Mr George Hall: I rise to ask the Secretary for Mines if he can give the Committee the necessary information as to how far the work of revision has proceeded in regard to abandoned mines, and whether all the districts are included in this work. The previous speaker referred to the number of abandoned mines in the county of Durham, but what he said applies to almost every coal-mining area in the whole...
