Social Insurance ( 2 Nov 1944)

Mr Andrew MacLaren: I would like the attention of the Minister, not of the noble Lord on the Front Bench; he is an irritable old gentleman. This is very im- portant because what has been said now will go out and will create a certain anticipation.

Social Insurance ( 2 Nov 1944)

Mr Andrew MacLaren: The question I want to ask the Minister is, Can it be accepted as a definite policy, from what has been said, that if what people receive under this scheme is not enough, they can now get supplementary assistance to meet their needs?

Orders of the Day — TOWN AND COUNTRY PLANNING (Re-Committed) BILL (25 Oct 1944)

Mr Andrew MacLaren: I congratulate hon. Members opposite on a conversion. In all the years I have been fighting this land question on the Floor of the House, this is the first occasion on which Members of the Conservative Party have suddenly been stricken with conscience, and have begun to admit that there is such a thing as a speculator in land values, and that he ought to be extinguished. I do not think that...

Orders of the Day — TOWN AND COUNTRY PLANNING (Re-Committed) BILL (25 Oct 1944)

Mr Andrew MacLaren: I will take my hon. Friend by the hand and show him. All I am saying is that I hope the Government will, by some Clause or another in this Bill, net these gentlemen in some way; because there is this difficulty. People like myself, who have very strong views in the matter, know that when a man wants to use a piece of land, he has no alternative, under the present economic system, but to buy...

Mr Andrew MacLaren: In the event of a local authority developing an area it will be remembered that there is a proposal in the background for a levy of something like 80 per cent. to be imposed on the increased value attaching to the land as a result of the improvement.

Mr Andrew MacLaren: I have sat through the whole of the Debate and practised the virtue, if it may be so called, of silence. I have not intervened once. I saw the thing going on. Knowing the old days and the old fights on this vital issue I wondered what would happen when we came to the compensation Clauses. The Prime Minister said, quite rightly, that unless he had a united House behind him the position would...

Mr Andrew MacLaren: I accept that, but it is strange that we should be called upon to create a hiatus at this juncture. I resume my seat saluting, as we all do, the Prime Minister in his position at the moment as Leader of this country in this bitter conflict, but I do ask him to have regard to some of us in this House who hold dear certain fundamental principles, so that if we give way on this occasion it will...
