Oral Answers to Questions — Housing: Minister of Supply (Lodging) (16 Jul 1946)

Mr George Hall: There is no free lodging here. If a Minister likes to put his own bed in his office and sleep there when he is late, it seems to me there is nothing to add.

Clause 8. — (Passenger aircraft licences for sale of intoxicating liquor and tobacco.) (15 Jul 1946)

Mr George Hall: I beg to move, in page 6, line 2, at the end, to insert: (4) It is hereby declared that the Parliament of Northern Ireland has power to make laws for purposes similar to the purposes of this section. This Clause deals with the granting of licenses to passenger aircraft, and the Attorney-General of Northern Ireland, who looked at the Bill, has come to the conclusion that aerial navigation is...

Clause 13. — (Cesser of charge and reduction of rates of purchase tax in respect of certain goods.) (15 Jul 1946)

Mr George Hall: I beg to move, in page 9, line 15, after "Subsection," to insert "at the basic rate." I think it would be convenient, Mr. Speaker, if I dealt with this Amendment and the next two Amendments together. The first two are drafting Amendments, and the third one is necessary to provide that the alterations in tax made by the Amendments to the Third Schedule, which are to be moved later on, shall...

Clause 28. — (Armed forces, etc.) (15 Jul 1946)

Mr George Hall: I beg to move, in page 21, line 7, to leave out from the first "the," to "as," in line 8, and to insert: Schedule (Women's Services) to this Act. With your permission, Mr. Speaker, I will discuss this and the following Amendment together. These changes implement a promise I gave during the Committee stage to the right hon. and gallant Gentleman the Member for Gains-borough (Captain...

New Schedule. — (Women's Services.) (15 Jul 1946)

Mr George Hall: I beg to move, "That the Schedule be read a Second time."

Oral Answers to Questions — Civil Service: Ex-Servicemen (11 Jul 1946)

Mr George Hall: Employment in certain subordinate grades of the Civil Service is reserved, where possible, for ex-Servicemen. In filling other vacancies of a temporary character Departments select those who appear most suitable for the particular posts from the field submitted by the Ministry of Labour, and give due consideration to any submissions of ex-Servicemen and disabled persons.

Fifth Schedule. — (Adjustments of the functions of statutory undertakers.) (11 Jul 1946)

Mr George Hall: On a point of Order. Is it in Order on the Third Reading to mention something which is not in the Bill?

Cable and Wireless Bill (11 Jul 1946)

Mr George Hall: I beg to move, "That the Bill be now read the Third time." Quite briefly, as I think the House knows, the purpose of this Measure is a simple one. It is to transfer to the Treasury the balance of the Cable and Wireless operating company shares, and compensation is to be paid to the companies who now hold the shares by the issue of Government stock. Broadly, the Bill does nothing more than...

Cable and Wireless Bill (11 Jul 1946)

Mr George Hall: Of course it is impossible to say what the loss will he. What we have to remember is that the revenue accruing during the war must obviously have been something more than the likely revenue that will accrue in the early postwar years. I do not want to labour this, because I do not desire to speak too long in moving the Third Reading, but, whilst we are willing to guarantee the loss up to the...

Cable and Wireless Bill (11 Jul 1946)

Mr George Hall: As I said earlier, it is impossible to say what it will be. But, if the hon. and learned Member wants my guess, I think it will be less than half the figure the company estimates. Such criticisms as have been levelled against the Bill during its Committee stage, have been concentrated almost entirely in two directions. One is the position of the staff when the Bill becomes law, and the other...

Oral Answers to Questions — Cameroons (Produce Cultivation) (10 Jul 1946)

Mr George Hall: This matter continues to receive my attention but at present I have nothing to add to the reply I gave to the hon. Member for West Leyton (Mr. Sorensen) on 22nd May.
