Class Vii.: Office of Works and Public Buildings. ( 9 Feb 1937)

Mr Morgan Jones: I am surprised to hear the Parliamentary Secretary say that certain work has had to be set aside. Some hon. Members are interested in a scheme which is long overdue, namely, the Whitehall Development Scheme. There are large numbers of offices in Whitehall where employés of the Govern- ment are working under conditions which are exceedingly deleterious to health, and this means that for the...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Board of Education. ( 8 Feb 1937)

Mr Morgan Jones: Is it proposed to charge any fees to the students?

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Board of Education. ( 8 Feb 1937)

Mr Morgan Jones: We have had to-night a most interesting discussion on a subject which has been brought before the attention of the country for a considerable time, namely, the subject of physical training and recreation. The President of the Board of Education naturally felt obliged to refer to one or two items other than physical training which concern the Votes we are discussing. I do not propose to go...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Board of Education. ( 8 Feb 1937)

Mr Morgan Jones: They will be part of it, but when the local authority qua local authority is making an appeal it has to go, not to the right hon. Gentleman, but to the local committee, which is partly representative of local authorities and partly of outside organisations. That development may be acceptable to the right hon. Gentleman, and perhaps it is the best arrangement he can make. I do not know. All I...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Board of Education. ( 8 Feb 1937)

Mr Morgan Jones: That is why you want to turn him out.

Feeding of Children. ( 3 Feb 1937)

Mr Morgan Jones: I should very much doubt whether friends of the hon. Gentleman opposite, after having listened to his speech, will feel that he has presented a convincing case on behalf of the Government. I would like to take up one of his first remarks. For some unaccountable reason he went out of his way to congratulate hon. Members on this side for beginning to take an interest in this matter. I wonder on...

Feeding of Children. ( 3 Feb 1937)

Mr Morgan Jones: There is no party in the State that has more consistently drawn attention to the necessity of looking after the physical well being of children than has this party.

Feeding of Children. ( 3 Feb 1937)

Mr Morgan Jones: I assumed that the hon. Gentleman regarded nutrition as being somewhat remotely, at any rate, connected with physical well-being. We can claim that the pioneers even in the matter of nursery schools belonged to this party. Rachel and Margaret Macmillan were associated in the earlier days with the Labour movement.

Feeding of Children. ( 3 Feb 1937)

Mr Morgan Jones: In an answer which I gave as Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Education when we were in power in 1931, I said that we had then provided for 40 nursery schools and we had before us plans for another 40 schools. I wonder how many the hon. Gentleman's friends have approved since then. It comes ill from the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Education to speak to us about our lack of...

Feeding of Children. ( 3 Feb 1937)

Mr Morgan Jones: I think I have indicated to the hon. Gentleman that to ask individuals like teachers and others to detect those signs is to ask for what is impracticable. Moreover, when malnutrition is detected, the board refuse to provide an adequate amount of money to deal with it. I do not want to pre-judge the physical training scheme, but I say that it is beginning at the wrong end. First see to the...

Public Works Loans Bill. ( 2 Feb 1937)

Mr Morgan Jones: I do not propose to follow my hon. Friend the Member for Chesterfield (Mr. Benson) over all the ground which he has so ably covered. I think it possible that there may be a simple explanation of the first point which he raised. However, I shall not try to debate the Government's case for them, and I leave that explanation to the Financial Secretary. As to his second point, namely, that of...

Public Works Loans Bill. ( 2 Feb 1937)

Mr Morgan Jones: They lend to individuals also, but for the moment I am concerned with companies. For instance, there are cases in which public authorities have borrowed from the Commissioners and then lent to colliery companies to enable those companies to build houses in their areas. A case has been brought to my attention lately—not from my own area—of a local authority borrowing money from the...

Public Works Loans Bill. ( 2 Feb 1937)

Mr Morgan Jones: I may be very stupid, but I am afraid I must ask the hon. and gallant Gentleman for a further explanation. What is the meaning of the column "Amount repaid"? Does that mean that the borrowers concerned repaid in principal and interest £1,927 13s. 2d. out of the £3,000? After that was paid, you proceeded to sell the farm, and received £2,300 for it. After the payment of £1,927, only about...

Royal Dockyards (Dismissals). (26 Jan 1937)

Mr Morgan Jones: Did not a similar situation arise last August when accusations were laid before the Prime Minister against Sir Christopher Bullock. In that case he appointed a commission and notified the public of the names of the tribunal. The tribunal took evidence and Sir Christopher Bullock appeared before it. Why not in this case?

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport.: Road Accidents (Wimbledon). (25 Jan 1937)

Mr Morgan Jones: Ought not the Minister to review the number of miles per hour at which vehicles may pass on some of these very important roads in and around London?

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport.: Road Accidents (Wimbledon). (25 Jan 1937)

Mr Morgan Jones: How long will the Government remain inactive in view of the murder of innocents that is going on in London?

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport.: Neon Signs. (25 Jan 1937)

Mr Morgan Jones: Has not the Ministry had sufficient experience of these various forms of lighting?

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport.: Neon Signs. (25 Jan 1937)

Mr Morgan Jones: Ought not the Minister to do something to secure uniformity, as the different forms of lighting cause considerable embarrassment?

Oral Answers to Questions — Coal Industry.: Gresford Colliery Accident. (25 Jan 1937)

Mr Morgan Jones: Is not this evidence of sufficient importance, from the point of view of those outside, to warrant its publication?

Oral Answers to Questions — Unemployment.: Italy and Abyssinia. (19 Jan 1937)

Mr Morgan Jones: asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he has any information to give the House with regard to the present position of affairs in Abyssinia?
