Orders of the Day — Supply: Education ( 4 May 1950)

Mr William Cove: I am sure that I voice the feelings of the whole Committee in saying that they have listened with pleasure to the speech which has just been delivered by the hon. Member for Herts, South-West (Mr. G. Longden). He showed a sincere and intelligent interest in the subject of education, and I am quite certain that he will get the teachers' vote. He has indeed been most outspoken in support of...

Orders of the Day — Supply: Education ( 4 May 1950)

Mr William Cove: I am appealing for a settlement by general agreement and consent. I greatly regret this profound issue, which affects the lives of thousands of our fellow citizens, being thrown in the maelstrom of party politics. I do not want to go back to the old days of religious strife, and the only way to prevent that is by means of the suggestion of the right hon. Member for Saffron Walden and my right...

Orders of the Day — Supply: Education ( 4 May 1950)

Mr William Cove: There is evidence in what is taking place now of what will occur if this is gone on with. I do not want that. I want agreement. Why? Because. all the time, who is suffering from the rotten, miserable, filthy, insanitary schools? It is not the parents, because they have left, but the tens of thousands of children who are to be educated in these insanitary buildings, which have not been...

Orders of the Day — King's Speech: Debate on the Address (10 Mar 1950)

Mr William Cove: I am sure that on behalf of the whole House I can congratulate the hon. Member for Roxburgh and Selkirk (Mr. Macdonald) on his speech. He has put to us a clear and distinct case for what he desires, and I am sure we were all deeply impressed by his fervent nationalism. I am also sure that the interests of Scotland will be safe in his hands, so far as they lie in his hands. Let us turn for a...

Orders of the Day — King's Speech: Debate on the Address (10 Mar 1950)

Mr William Cove: No. [An HON. MEMBER: "Because the Tories were in power then."] I am concerned with the present and the future. Let us come to the proposal for a Welsh Parliament. Apparently, by this proposal it would be a parliament for Wales without power over taxation; a parliament for Wales with no power in defence; a parliament for Wales with no power over trade and industry. I cannot make out, although...

Orders of the Day — King's Speech: Debate on the Address (10 Mar 1950)

Mr William Cove: That has yet to be examined. I have quoted figures before about Welsh finances. A penny rate for the whole of Wales—for the whole of Wales, mind you—brings in just over£49,000. A penny rate in England brings in about£1,200,000. The fact is that up to now Wales has not had the economic and financial resources to embark upon a scheme of this kind as has been suggested by the Liberal Party...

Welsh Affairs (24 Nov 1949)

Mr William Cove: I have considered very carefully this White Paper and, having considered it, I must say that the noble Lady the Member for Anglesey (Lady Megan Lloyd George) has tried successfully to side-track the Debate. Anyone Who goes through this White Paper impartially and objectively, cannot but be impressed by the fact that here is a record of the rejuvenation of Wales. Every item—the production of...

Welsh Affairs (24 Nov 1949)

Mr William Cove: They were decaying not because there had been an invasion of the beauty spots but because there was the corroding influence of mass unemployment amongst our people. I am, therefore, proud, in what will perhaps be the last Debate on Wales in this House to pay my tribute to the Government for what they have achieved in the realm of economics in Wales. It is all very well, if I may say so with...

Welsh Affairs (24 Nov 1949)

Mr William Cove: It is relevant in one respect. I have some recent figures relating to the poverty of Wales. The right hon. and learned Gentleman himself has pointed out before now, the poverty of the rate resources in Wales. If hon. Members will look at the Ministry of Education Report for 1948—and I hope hon. Members have noticed these figures—they will see in Table 84 some very important figures. I am...

Welsh Affairs (24 Nov 1949)

Mr William Cove: My hon. Friend says "No." I prefer to call her my hon. Friend than the hon. Lady. I have given a lot of attention to the proposal, and I repeat that, with the full Civil Service apparatus, the Council can consider all these major issues. I say quite definitely that when we go to the Election in Wales the record of the Government will be such that we shall triumph as a Labour Party...
