British Army (Discharge Procedure) (16 Mar 1945)

Mr John Davidson: I rise to support my hon. Friend the Member for Bassetlaw (Mr. Bellenģer) in his plea that we should get a definite statement from the War Office about those whom the Army are now discarding for various reasons. Without casting any imputations on the morale of the British Army I must say that I have found, in discussions with serving men, that there is a growing discontent among officers,...

British Army (Discharge Procedure) (16 Mar 1945)

Mr John Davidson: I take it that if I bring the case to the notice of my hon. and learned Friend, it will receive consideration. There is one other point I would like answered and that is whether there is, anything in the King's Regulations which would debar the War Office from giving such a case sympathetic consideration.

Orders of the Day — Town and Country Planning (Scotland) Bill (14 Feb 1945)

Mr John Davidson: It is some time since I had the temerity to address the House of Commons, particularly in a Scottish Debate, and I trust that my right hon. Friend will recognise that I am very definitely imbued with the idea of giving any assistance I can, however meagre it may be, to get the Scottish Office to recognise how ill this Bill has been received, not only by Members of o this House, but by local...

Orders of the Day — Women's Land Army (14 Feb 1945)

Mr John Davidson: I want to ask for the Ministry's intervention with regard to girls when they have met with injuries during work on the land. These women had practically a guarantee that they would not have to do service abroad, but I would rather be a typist in the A.T.S. or the W.A.A.F. in Paris, than a Land Army girl in some of the far-away districts of this country, and in the North of Scotland. Those...

Orders of the Day — Class I: Battalion Commander (Inquiry) (30 Jan 1945)

Mr John Davidson: Quite frankly, I do not think my hon. and learned Friend has answered the case. I listened very attentively to the hon. Member who brought up this subject on the Adjournment, and there were one or two points which struck me very much indeed. First I would ask whether, after Rose was removed from his command, there was a radical change in the training. It has been definitely stated that...

Passenger Transport Vehicles (Construction Order) (21 Dec 1944)

Mr John Davidson: It is perfectly clear to the majority of Members that my hon. Friend has answered adequately the arguments put forward by particular interests. There is an important housing Debate to follow in which Scottish Members are particularly interested——
