Orders of the Day — Town and Country Planning Bill (12 Jul 1944)

Mr Andrew MacLaren: I have listened to the Debate for two days and, like most people who have to wait for a long period, have heard one argument after another being used which was my own original idea.

But I am sure I shall be forgiven if I say, having fought this question for more years than I care to count, that listening...

Orders of the Day — Town and Country Planning Bill (12 Jul 1944)

Mr Andrew MacLaren: In order to strengthen my case I would point out that if the money had been paid for that land—as I found out upon pressing an inquiry into the matter, when I asked what would happen to the contiguous sites after the improvement had been affected—not merely were the landowners to receive£11,000,000 and more for the right to build a bridge, but the contiguous sites would have increased in...

Orders of the Day — Town and Country Planning Bill (12 Jul 1944)

Mr Andrew MacLaren: —that we should be playing about with the matter in this piecemeal form.

Orders of the Day — Employment Policy (23 Jun 1944)

Mr Andrew MacLaren: I welcome this opportunity of a discussion of the problem of unemployment. There is no test question which is more devastating for Governments and economists than the question: "How do you propose to deal with unemployment?" During the last war, I remember sitting in the Gallery of the House, listening to the fatuous promises made by the right hon. Member for Carnarvon Boroughs (Mr. Lloyd...

Orders of the Day — Employment Policy (23 Jun 1944)

Mr Andrew MacLaren: What is that? If we are going to be honest, we are going to pay back those sums, and that means that, at some time or other, industry will have to bear the burden of the taxation. I challenge anyone to deny this—that every penny of taxation we put upon industry tends to create unemployment. I have spoken over my time, but let me make this final point. The hon. Member for Seaham (Mr....

They are old-fashioned, but let us see how we can follow these proposals, so that they will mitigate...

Mr Andrew MacLaren: If we are to face the impact of competition from great equipments of powerful countries like America and Russia it behoves us to see that we are really serious about the export trade, which I believe is vital.

Mr Andrew MacLaren: Here is a document be fore the House. The right hon. Gentleman has said that he has submitted it for discussion, in order to gather the mind of the House, and if the House assents to the policy embodied in the Paper that will set the plan for future Government policy.
