Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: River Pollution (Advisory Committee) (17 Mar 1959)

Mr Jack Browne: My right hon. Friend understands that the Committee has not met since April, 1957, mainly because certain information which it has asked the river purification boards to collate and submit about conditions in their districts is not yet fully available, but that the Chairman hopes that it will be possible to resume sittings very shortly.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: River Pollution (Advisory Committee) (17 Mar 1959)

Mr Jack Browne: Yes, Sir, I am satisfied. We have reason to think that further meetings will take place very soon.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: River Pollution (Advisory Committee) (17 Mar 1959)

Mr Jack Browne: Yes. We will do what we can to help the Advisory Committee.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Nurses (17 Mar 1959)

Mr Jack Browne: My right hon. Friend has no information which suggests that there has been any marked upward trend in the number of nurses emigrating to Canada and the United States in recent years and he does not consider that any special steps are called for.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Nurses (17 Mar 1959)

Mr Jack Browne: The hon. Gentleman must believe that it is possible that he is not right. The total number of trained nurses in Scotland has increased steadily over the last ten years. There may be local difficulties, but there is no overall shortage.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Nurses (17 Mar 1959)

Mr Jack Browne: Yes, but that does not arise out of the Question.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Land, Summerston (Development) (17 Mar 1959)

Mr Jack Browne: The development of this area would require an amendment to the Glasgow Development Plan. No such amendment has yet been submitted to my right hon. Friend by the Corporation, which is, I understand, awaiting the final decision on the National Coal Board's proposed new mining development at Bearsden which will substantially affect any development at Summerston.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Land, Summerston (Development) (17 Mar 1959)

Mr Jack Browne: We will give Glasgow Corporation any assistance that we possibly can.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Advance Factories, Glenrothes (17 Mar 1959)

Mr Jack Browne: These small advance factory units of 2,400 square feet each are similar in scale and purpose to those which have been approved from time to time in all the Scottish New Towns. They are intended for letting to smaller firms and service industries.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Advance Factories, Glenrothes (17 Mar 1959)

Mr Jack Browne: They are financed in the ordinary way out of the New Towns funds. They are not so much factories as small workshops, and they will all be occupied.

Orders of the Day — House Purchase and Housing Bill: Clause 1. — (Approval of Building Societies for Investment by Trustees and Government Loans.) (4 Mar 1959)

Mr Jack Browne: The answer to the hon. Lady is that there are four such societies in Scotland. The hon. Lady will realise that many English firms have a great deal of Scottish business and some Scottish firms have a great deal of English business. We have looked at this matter with very great care and concern—we are concerned for the welfare of our Scottish building societies—and I assure the hon. Lady...

Orders of the Day — House Purchase and Housing Bill: Clause 1. — (Approval of Building Societies for Investment by Trustees and Government Loans.) (4 Mar 1959)

Mr Jack Browne: I apologise to the hon. Member for Leith (Mr. Hoy) but I have not got that figure at the moment. What I can tell him is that we have looked at this matter with great care and have satisfied ourselves that the smaller Scottish societies—I agree with everything that the hon. Lady the Member for Lanarkshire, North (Miss Herbison) has said about them; I am sure that their enterprise will soon...

Orders of the Day — House Purchase and Housing Bill: Clause 1. — (Approval of Building Societies for Investment by Trustees and Government Loans.) (4 Mar 1959)

Mr Jack Browne: I am grateful to the hon. Member for Edinburgh, East (Mr. Willis) for giving me the chance to reply again. I am now in a position to answer a question put to me by the hon. Member for Leith (Mr. Hoy). It is a good thing to get the matter in proportion. There are 38 Scottish societies, of which four will qualify under all the conditions, and eight will qualify on size alone. The hon. Member...

Orders of the Day — House Purchase and Housing Bill: Clause 1. — (Approval of Building Societies for Investment by Trustees and Government Loans.) (4 Mar 1959)

Mr Jack Browne: The hon. Lady brings to all our debates bitterness which is not borne out by the facts. She knows quite well that this was debated and answered on behalf of my right hon. Friend by a Treasury Minister. She insists on dragging in the Joint Under-Secretary, and I am quite prepared to answer, but I did not come to the discussion on this particular Clause with all the facts and figures in front...

Orders of the Day — Clause 19. — (Duty of Local Authorities to Make Grants Towards Certain Improvements.) (18 Feb 1959)

Mr Jack Browne: I beg to move, in page 11, line 38, at the beginning to insert: Subject to subsection (6) of this section". As this is a paving Amendment, it may be convenient also to consider the Amendment: In page 12, line 17, at the end to add: (4) An application under this section must also contain a statement either that the applicant is the occupier of the dwelling or that the occupier has consented...

Orders of the Day — Clause 19. — (Duty of Local Authorities to Make Grants Towards Certain Improvements.) (18 Feb 1959)

Mr Jack Browne: The Amendment refers only to a very limited class of dwelling. So far as I can ascertain there are very few cases now where there are two or more dwellings even in one ownership which are premises in one valuation roll entry under Scottish practice. Having heard the moderate speech made by the hon. Gentleman the Member for Kilmarnock (Mr. Ross), I take it that he does not want the view which...

Orders of the Day — Clause 19. — (Duty of Local Authorities to Make Grants Towards Certain Improvements.) (18 Feb 1959)

Mr Jack Browne: It seems to us unfair to put the owner into the position of having to improve all the dwellings at the same time. Let me put this point of view. First, he may not be able to afford it. We know that many of these properties are owned by small men who have the greatest difficulty in making ends meet and it may be too great a burden on the owner for him to be able to afford to repair all the...

Orders of the Day — Clause 19. — (Duty of Local Authorities to Make Grants Towards Certain Improvements.) (18 Feb 1959)

Mr Jack Browne: The hon. Gentleman did not want it done in that way.

Orders of the Day — Clause 19. — (Duty of Local Authorities to Make Grants Towards Certain Improvements.) (18 Feb 1959)

Mr Jack Browne: I am grateful to the hon. Member for Kilmarnock (Mr. Ross) for his second speech. I now see where he and I are at cross purposes. He asked where we should put the separate water closet in these houses, and there was a suggestion of making three flats into two. That is a subject for an improvement grant. The Bill covers the standard grant and makes no provision for conversions. It does not...
