Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Supply.: Mid-Sussex Lumber Company. (21 May 1942)

Mr Charles Peat: I am informed that the Directors of the Company referred to are Mr. A. L. Rye and Mr. A. F. Chapman. I assume my hon. and gallant Friend is referring to the site for the sawmill. No permission from the Ministry of Supply is required for the acquisition or use of this land, which was presumably acquired under private agreement with any necessary permission from the local or other authority. As...

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Supply.: Private Motor Car Tyres. (21 May 1942)

Mr Charles Peat: I am afraid this would not be practicable. I am grateful for the contribution to the national effort made by those who hand in their tyres for further use; but priority in the purchase of tyres at a later date will no doubt have to depend upon the degree of essentiality of the transport, and I cannot mortgage the future.

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Supply.: Private Motor Car Tyres. (21 May 1942)

Mr Charles Peat: It is extremely difficult to give any preference to those who voluntarily give up their tyres, because any promise we might make in that direction might be very hard to fulfil in the future. With regard to the steps which my right hon. Friend may be taking to requisition tyres on laid-up cars, I cannot make a statement on that matter at the moment.

Oral Answers to Questions — Paper Control (Architectural Association's Year Book). (24 Mar 1942)

Mr Charles Peat: I understand that the paper for the publication to which my hon. Friend refers, which is the Year Book of the Association, came from the stock of a local printer. The quantity used was about 2¼ cwts. The amount of paper allowed to printers for general printing is now severely curtailed, and my right hon. Friend is looking further into the question of the consumption of paper by publications...

Oral Answers to Questions — Paper Control (Architectural Association's Year Book). (24 Mar 1942)

Mr Charles Peat: I cannot say whether there are vast quantities of paper outside the scope of the Paper Control. What we are dealing with here are small stocks in the hands of a great number of merchants.

Oral Answers to Questions — British Army.: Cornish Tin Mining. (17 Mar 1942)

Mr Charles Peat: It is not intended to await a general formal report on the entire position of the Cornish tin-mining industry. Proposals for specific developments will be considered as they arise. The Ministry of Supply are already in negotiation with the owners of the three principal mines at present in production with the object of obtaining an increased output; and exploratory and other preliminary work...

Oral Answers to Questions — British Army.: Cornish Tin Mining. (17 Mar 1942)

Mr Charles Peat: A report has not yet been obtained, but we have unofficial information. We are in negotiation with the three mines already in production and helping them in every way we can with labour and so on. Labour is very short, and until we can get these three mines producing at full capacity, while we are still investigating the position of the others, we think it better to concentrate on the three...

Oral Answers to Questions — British Army.: Cornish Tin Mining. (17 Mar 1942)

Mr Charles Peat: Yes, Sir.

Oral Answers to Questions — British Army.: Dog Racing Track, White City (Use of Timber). (17 Mar 1942)

Mr Charles Peat: I am informed that this booth was built in part of timber which had previously been used on the same premises and that 1,300 square feet of new timber was used. The new timber was part of a stock held by the Greyhound Racing Association, Limited, since September, 1939, and a quantity greater than the 1,300 square feet can, under the Timber Control Orders, be consumed without licence from a...

Oral Answers to Questions — British Army.: Dog Racing Track, White City (Use of Timber). (17 Mar 1942)

Mr Charles Peat: An investigator has been down to the Greyhound Racing Association and, as far as I am aware, the facts I have given are correct.

Oral Answers to Questions — Food Supplies.: Kitchen Waste (Collection). (12 Mar 1942)

Mr Charles Peat: Directions have already been served on 96 local authorities requiring them to collect kitchen waste and send it to concentrator plants, and further directions will be served as and when concentrator plants become available. My right hon. Friend does not, however, at present propose to make collections compulsory on all local authorities, since this would not be justified in cases where...

Oral Answers to Questions — Food Supplies.: Kitchen Waste (Collection). (12 Mar 1942)

Mr Charles Peat: Not that I am aware of.

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Supply.: Medical Supplies. ( 5 Mar 1942)

Mr Charles Peat: The total quantity of essential medical supplies is sufficient to meet national requirements and there is no evidence, so far as I am aware, of shortage in supplies to retail chemists.

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Supply.: Medical Supplies. ( 5 Mar 1942)

Mr Charles Peat: This question is being gone into carefully, and I can only repeat that there is no shortage of medical supplies. My Department have been advised by the Ministry of Health and a society appointed by the Medical Research Association.

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Supply.: Regional Production Committee. ( 5 Mar 1942)

Mr Charles Peat: I will with my hon. Friend's permission, circulate the names of the members of the committee in the OFFICIAL REPORT.

War Situation. (27 Jan 1942)

Mr Charles Peat: I have not addressed this House for a long time. I only do so to-day because I feel that the Debates in this House are very often carried on by a fairly select few, and that people from the back benches do not often have an opportunity, except after very long waits, of giving an opinion which may be quite representative and useful. My own reaction to some speeches to which we have listened...

War Situation. (27 Jan 1942)

Mr Charles Peat: Perhaps the hon. Member is better informed than I am, but I see a great number of profit and loss accounts of the biggest companies in the land. There may be exceptions, which the hon. Member and others with him are apt to pin their remarks upon. Of course, there are exceptions in every case. What is the good of beating about the bush? But by and large it is a very great mistake for working...

War Situation. (27 Jan 1942)

Mr Charles Peat: I am not quite sure what my hon. and gallant Friend means. The origin of this Government, as far as I am concerned, was that we had a peace Government, that we had gone into war, and as is invariably the case—unfortunately, I have seen it twice in my lifetime—that peace Government could not function. I cannot imagine that a peace Government would ever function in war. I think that...

Oral Answers to Questions — Civil Defence.: Indoor Shelters (Government Proposals). (11 Feb 1941)

Mr Charles Peat: Has the right hon. Gentleman any statement to make on the subject of eligibility for these shelters?
