Ways and Means: Town and Country Planning (Interim Development) Bill (25 May 1943)

Mr Andrew MacLaren: I want to associate myself with this Amendment. The old Office of Works had considerable experience in preserving historical monu ments, and from that experience the Ministry should be able to get a very good idea of the number of historical monuments that we have up and down the country. One of the most shocking experiences one can have when passing through some of our towns or villages is...

Civil Estimates, 1943: Post-War International Currency (12 May 1943)

Mr Andrew MacLaren: It is not in the Report.

Orders of the Day — Town and Country Planning (Interim Development) Bill (11 May 1943)

Mr Andrew MacLaren: I cannot intervene in the discussion without first congratulating the Minister upon his coming to an office which is more actively associated with public welfare than the office which he previously held. The whole of this question opens up such a wide vista that one is inclined to forget the clock and the patience of the House, as has been evidenced by some speeches already delivered. I hope...

Orders of the Day — Town and Country Planning (Interim Development) Bill (11 May 1943)

Mr Andrew MacLaren: I should think the hon. and gallant Gentleman and I would be able to do that for a start. I should have thought that we all know what ugliness is, more or less. [An HON. MEMBER: "No."] If we do not—well, that is how I would regard the matter. I was dealing with the complicated Act of 1932, which now necessitates another complicated Bill, small though it is, in which the Minister proposes to...

Orders of the Day — Town and Country Planning (Interim Development) Bill (11 May 1943)

Mr Andrew MacLaren: Perhaps it is, but I am dealing with the principle of the thing. Local authorities have shown their utter incompetence to deal with these problems, and I am glad that the Minister has taken a hand. Despite all that the local authority may say in regard to planning, the Minister will have it in his hands to overrule any planning or building that they may suggest. Surely it is not deniable,...

Orders of the Day — Town and Country Planning (Interim Development) Bill (11 May 1943)

Mr Andrew MacLaren: Will the hon. Gentleman allow me, for the sake of accuracy and form, to say that I think I made it quite clear that I welcomed the Bill, although holding strong views as to ownership. I welcomed the Bill because it gives control over development.

Orders of the Day — Town and Country Planning (Interim Development) Bill (11 May 1943)

Mr Andrew MacLaren: On a point of Order. A statement has been quoted as having been made by the Minister without Portfolio regarding a certain policy which, so far as I know, the House has not pledged itself to support. As a matter of fact, I think the point just raised was, if I may say so with great respect, out of Order and not within the confines of the Bill we are now discussing. I want to make quite sure...

Oral Answers to Questions — Industrial Hereditaments (Derating) ( 8 Apr 1943)

Mr Andrew MacLaren: Is not the only person who can give information on the point the Chancellor of the Exchequer, who made this ridiculous provision?

Oral Answers to Questions — Mass Unemployment (Prevention) ( 8 Apr 1943)

Mr Andrew MacLaren: Does the right hon. Gentleman suggest that the Government do not know at this time of day what the cause of unemployment is?

British Broadcasting Corporation (Propaganda) ( 8 Apr 1943)

Mr Andrew MacLaren: What about Vic Oliver?

Orders of the Day — Catering Wages Bill: Clause 1. — (The Catering Wages Com- mission and the workers to whom this Act applies.) (25 Mar 1943)

Mr Andrew MacLaren: I have listened to the Debate since it began, and naturally this Amendment attracted my attention more than any other. I also want to defend the individual and the family from unnecessary State interference. The State will interfere with everybody—that is inevitable—but as long as human beings are behaving in a normal manner and the human family is conforming to the ordinary decencies and...

Orders of the Day — Catering Wages Bill: Clause 1. — (The Catering Wages Com- mission and the workers to whom this Act applies.) (25 Mar 1943)

Mr Andrew MacLaren: Perhaps I should have said that a certain Member of the House intervened and lauded the small man as being——

Orders of the Day — Catering Wages Bill: Clause 1. — (The Catering Wages Com- mission and the workers to whom this Act applies.) (25 Mar 1943)

Mr Andrew MacLaren: I want to say in passing that these large developments tend to exclude the competition of smaller men when they see them rising above the ground later on. I want to deal with the point before the Committee at the moment. I listened to the Minister's reply to the discussion, and I want to appeal to the Committee. Often I have argued in this House, as many other hon. Members have done, with...
