Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture: Bulls (Licensing) (29 Oct 1945)

Sir John Barlow: asked the Minister of Agriculture if he is aware that the present bull licensing regulations preclude the issue of a dairy bull licence in respect of a bull whose immediate female ancestors, although of outstanding merit and with milk records recognised in other countries, were not recorded for milk production in England and Wales; and if he will amend the Regulations to overcome this...

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture: Bulls (Licensing) (29 Oct 1945)

Sir John Barlow: Will the Minister make the Regulations retrospective?

Orders of the Day — Agriculture (Artificial Insemination) Bill (14 Nov 1945)

Sir John Barlow: I rise with great fear and trepidation to address this House for the first time, and I therefore ask the indulgence of the House. This may seem a very curious topic on which to speak for the first time, but I do so for two reasons. The first is because I have the honour to represent a large agricultural area in Cheshire, the Eddisbury division, in which there are many small farmers, who are...

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Supply: County Executive Committees (25 Feb 1946)

Sir John Barlow: Will the right hon. Gentleman tell us how these committees are to be constituted, and the number representing each section of the industry?

Orders of the Day — Agricultural Development (Ploughing Up of Land) Bill (1 Mar 1946)

Sir John Barlow: The previous speaker suggests that this subsidy for ploughing up leys is in no way a present. I agree with that. It seems to me to be a very lucky dip for some farmers who plough up after 5th February, and not earlier in the season. I rise to support the Amendment because I feel that the whole agricultural policy is wisely and essentially a long term policy, as it must be in all farming. It...

Orders of the Day — Agricultural Development (Ploughing Up of Land) Bill (1 Mar 1946)

Sir John Barlow: I cannot quote that statement, but I will quote one which was reported in the Press on 5th December, when the Minister gave a serious warning. He is reported to have said: The food resources of the world are going to be taxed to the uttermost limit. To meet the world's needs, both during this winter and the next, the maintenance of wheat supplies is therefore vital. Not only is there an...

Orders of the Day — STRAITS SETTLEMENTS (REPEAL) BILL [Lords] (8 Mar 1946)

Sir John Barlow: I would like wholeheartedly to support the views put forward by the hon. Member for Hornsey (Mr. Gammans). He prefaced his speech by saying that he had no personal interest in Malaya. I would like to preface mine by saying that I have a considerable personal interest in Malaya. I have been a member of a firm exporting a great variety of goods to that country for nearly a century. I am deeply...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Raw Cotton (Prices) (3 Jun 1946)

Sir John Barlow: Will the hon. Gentleman issue a profit and loss account of these charges?

Hill Farming [Money] (3 Jun 1946)

Sir John Barlow: rose—

Hill Farming [Money] (3 Jun 1946)

Sir John Barlow: There are two or three questions which I should like to put to the Minister. It seems to me that this is a substantial grant to cover 21 different items set out in the First Schedule to the Bill. There is a great variety of items in that Schedule but there has been nothing from the Government to show how the money would be distributed between the different items. I have seen no estimates made...

Hill Farming [Money] (3 Jun 1946)

Sir John Barlow: I bow to your Ruling, Mr. Beaumont. I should like to ask the Minister to give us some more information as to how this large sum of £4 million is to be spent in a general way and not in any particular way. We have been told that it is to cover a period of some four years and about 15,000,000 acres. It would seem to me that the amount involved is all too small for us to meet the situation and...

Hill Farming [Money] (3 Jun 1946)

Sir John Barlow: I wish to make my remarks very brief indeed. I hope that the Minister will, in all sincerity, try to show in some small way how this very small sum is to be applied to such an enormous amount of work.

Colonial Affairs (9 Jul 1946)

Sir John Barlow: I consider that I am very fortunate in following the last two speakers, the hon. Member for South Croydon (Mr. Rees-Williams) and the hon. Member for Hornsey (Mr. Gammans) As we know, they have just returned from the part of the world about which they have spoken with such authority, and for the reasons which the last speaker gave, that it is inadvisable in debates of this kind to stray too...

Class Ii: Malay States (25 Jul 1946)

Sir John Barlow: Could the hon. Gentleman give us the figures?

Class Ii: Malay States (25 Jul 1946)

Sir John Barlow: In accordance with the custom of the House, I take the earliest opportunity of declaring that I have certain interests in Malaya, which have taken me there periodically during the years before the war. It seems to me that, since Malaya was released from Japanese occupation, the period of conversion has been a very sorry story. There was the MacMichael visit, that has been discussed at length...

Orders of the Day — Hill Farming Bill: Clause 1. — (Grants under schemes for improvement of hill farming land.) (9 Oct 1946)

Sir John Barlow: All of us who have considered this Bill realise the difficulty of defining adequately exactly what hill farming is. The more we study this question the more we are convinced that the emphasis is wrongly placed on sheep and sheep alone, in the Bill. We think it most important to emphasise the cattle side. It has been repeatedly pointed out this afternoon that more cattle on the hill will...

Orders of the Day — Coinage Bill (15 Oct 1946)

Sir John Barlow: It seemed to me that when the Chancellor of the Exchequer introduced this Bill he was almost enthusiastic about debasing the silver coinage still further into the new alloy coinage. To me it is rather a sad moment, having seen the passing of the gold coinage. Then we saw reduction in the value of the silver coinage; now we see it passing altogether and the substitution of a cheap alloy...

Potatoes (1946 Crop) (Charges) Order (27 Nov 1946)

Sir John Barlow: I apologise to the hon. Lady for not being here when she spoke, but I was under the impression that this Debate was coming on later, and if I put any questions which she has already answered I apologise in advance. This Order seems to deal with a very small section of the potato distribution business. I would like to draw attention to Article 2, in which three classes of buyers are signified...

Orders of the Day — Agriculture Bill (28 Jan 1947)

Sir John Barlow: As the time at our disposal this evening is so short, and there are many would-be speakers, I will be as brief as possible. The hon. Member for South-West Norfolk (Mr. Dye) made some reference to the importation of eggs, and suggested that it was a wise policy on the part of the Government to import dried eggs, instead of importing grain and corn to produce the eggs in this country. I feel,...

Orders of the Day — Agriculture Bill (28 Jan 1947)

Sir John Barlow: I am afraid that I cannot give way.
