Mr Andrew MacLaren: At a cost of £33,000,000.

Orders of the Day — Town and Country Planning (Interim Development) (Scotland) Bill (21 Jul 1943)

Mr Andrew MacLaren: I ask the Secretary of State for Scotland to say what it would cost to widen the streets of Glasgow. He has not an acre of land under control in Glasgow. As Lord Astor rightly pointed out in a most telling letter in "The Times" the other day, what is going on is the promise of a new heaven on this miserable earth when the war is over by plans, committees and Ministries. In London we have the...

Orders of the Day — Town and Country Planning (Interim Development) (Scotland) Bill (21 Jul 1943)

Mr Andrew MacLaren: I know that my hon. Friend among others has asked Questions about the sale of land in Scotland and its enhanced value. There are times when, looking at the situation, one really wonders whether the Government, in order to avoid tackling the core of this problem, will create for itself utter destruction. As Lord Astor said in "The Times," when the public become alive to the fact that they have...

Orders of the Day — Town and Country Planning (Interim Development) (Scotland) Bill (21 Jul 1943)

Mr Andrew MacLaren: I rather gather from what the right hon. and learned Gentleman says that the local authorities could release the land. They cannot. It is to be subject to the approval of the Secretary of State.

Orders of the Day — Town and Country Planning (Interim Development) (Scotland) Bill (21 Jul 1943)

Mr Andrew MacLaren: What about the question of the 1939 values of land?

Orders of the Day — Town and Country Planning (Interim Development) (Scotland) Bill (21 Jul 1943)

Mr Andrew MacLaren: I thought I had made that clear myself.

Orders of the Day — Town and Country Planning (Interim Development) (Scotland) Bill (21 Jul 1943)

Mr Andrew MacLaren: The Secretary of State repeated a statement made by his English colleague that those who take land hoping to make a profit out of it and are holding their hand are to be instructed that they will get nothing more for their land than its 1939 value, and that is a material statement as regards this Bill. The question is whether the local authorities or the planning authorities are to face a...

Orders of the Day — Town and Country Planning (Interim Development) (Scotland) Bill (21 Jul 1943)

Mr Andrew MacLaren: I was asked to make clear what it was I had asked, and I am sorry that I have had to take so long in doing it.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill ( 7 Jul 1943)

Mr Andrew MacLaren: What about Beveridge now?

Civil Estimates, 1943 Class X: Coal Situation (23 Jun 1943)

Mr Andrew MacLaren: Before the right hon. and gallant Gentleman leaves that point may I ask him whether the position has been put to him with regard to the effect of Income Tax upon these young men as against the older men with families, who are able to get remission of Income Tax; and is he aware that the young men are rebelling against this Income Tax?

Civil Estimates, 1943: Scottish Housing and Health ( 8 Jun 1943)

Mr Andrew MacLaren: I make no apology for intervening in this Debate. The speech to which we have just listened is one of the most horrible declensions I have heard for a long time. When I think of the old days when Scotland was fighting on the housing question, and when I think of Sir Alexander Ure in this House, my mind goes back to Campbell-Bannerman. How did we face the issue in those days? Was it by the...

Civil Estimates, 1943: Scottish Housing and Health ( 8 Jun 1943)

Mr Andrew MacLaren: I am giving an experience similar to one that has already been referred to in the Debate, namely, the directing of people from outside to an already congested area.

Civil Estimates, 1943: Scottish Housing and Health ( 8 Jun 1943)

Mr Andrew MacLaren: As an old Member of this House, I think I know when I am keeping strictly to the Rules of Debate. I merely said that I am having the same experience in the Potteries as has been mentioned in regard to Glasgow, namely, the incoming of fresh people into an already congested area.

Civil Estimates, 1943: Scottish Housing and Health ( 8 Jun 1943)

Mr Andrew MacLaren: I will be content with what I have said. The similarity is there, the same difficulty is there. We are driving people into an already congested area, and the resulting tragedy makes it imperative that some form of accommodation shall be found for them expeditiously. We have set up a Minister of Town and Country Planning, and naturally he is apprehensive that not even temporary erections shall...

Civil Estimates, 1943: Scottish Housing and Health ( 8 Jun 1943)

Mr Andrew MacLaren: Yes. I would ask the Secretary of State to see that rates shall not be levied upon these emergency houses. Will he have the courage to try that? Let him try it and see what will happen, because it would help to reduce the rents and the charges upon the users. With regard to the question of materials and men, there is an increased amount of building labour floating about the country, and in...

Civil Estimates, 1943: Scottish Housing and Health ( 8 Jun 1943)

Mr Andrew MacLaren: All right. But I shall have to watch the Chair. Some have come down from Scotland to England, and they can be re-directed to Scotland. I know they are looking for work now and there will be more of them now that certain works are being held up. There is no reason why they should not go home. I will do my best to tell the right hon. Gentleman where they are. I am sorry to have spoken at such...

Civil Estimates, 1943: Scottish Housing and Health ( 8 Jun 1943)

Mr Andrew MacLaren: I was not particularly referring to my hon. Friend but speaking generally to Scottish Members. It is not only to-day that I have in mind, because I have listened to other Scottish Debates, and with the exception of one or two Members of the Independent Labour Party the speeches have seemed entirely divorced from the historic background of the fight in Scotland. Therefore, I was incited to...

Civil Estimates, 1943: Scottish Housing and Health ( 8 Jun 1943)

Mr Andrew MacLaren: There is no such value.

Orders of the Day — Supply: Statutory Rules and Orders (26 May 1943)

Mr Andrew MacLaren: By another Liberal.
