Civil Estimates, 1938.: Board of Education. (20 Jun 1938)

Mr Morgan Jones: How many of these schools have been provided by local authorities?

Civil Estimates, 1938.: Board of Education. (20 Jun 1938)

Mr Morgan Jones: The hon. Gentleman said there is a different standard. Does he mean that in Wales it is lower than in England, or vice versa?

Civil Estimates, 1938.: Board of Education. (20 Jun 1938)

Mr Morgan Jones: The salaries are inferior.

Civil Estimates, 1938.: Supply. (20 Jun 1938)

Mr Morgan Jones: I think I shall be expressing the view of all Members of the Committee when I say that it is somewhat deplorable that our discussion on education to-day should have been so greatly curtailed. By reason of the Rules of the House, we have had to sacrifice something like two and a-half hours of our time to a discussion on another subject, quite a proper subject, of course, but one not very...

Civil Estimates, 1938.: Supply. (20 Jun 1938)

Mr Morgan Jones: Yes, the National Council of Social Service. My third point is not strictly a Welsh point, but has, I believe, a much more general application. We think the time has come when the Ministry of Education might consider in a rather more generous way the problem of the cost of conveyance of children from their homes to the schools which they happen to be attending. Of course, he will realise...

Orders of the Day — Essential Commodities Reserves Bill.: Clause 3. — (Financial provisions.) (16 Jun 1938)

Mr Morgan Jones: I beg to move, in page 3, line 38, after "Exchequer," to insert "as soon as may be and in any case." I expect that representatives of the Government will at once have sensed why it is that this Amendment is being moved. We are reverting to a point that was raised in the Second Reading Debate and originated by my right hon. Friend the Member for Hillsborough (Mr. Alexander). Frankly, the...

Orders of the Day — Essential Commodities Reserves Bill.: Clause 3. — (Financial provisions.) (16 Jun 1938)

Mr Morgan Jones: I confess that in moving these words I was conscious of their vagueness, but one was anxious not to draft a form of words which would unduly hamper the Government in the work which they wish to do. However, even as they are, they do make a difference, for this reason, that these accounts would have to be examined by the Public Accounts Committee of the House of Commons some year or 18 months...

Orders of the Day — Essential Commodities Reserves Bill.: Clause 3. — (Financial provisions.) (16 Jun 1938)

Mr Morgan Jones: In that case I had better hang on to the little I have, and, weak as these words are, and as I know they are, I would rather attach them to the Clause than have no such words at all.

Civil Estimates, 1938.: Colonial Office. (14 Jun 1938)

Mr Morgan Jones: I gather that if my Amendment to reduce the Vote by £100 were postponed till the end of the Debate we could have a general discussion involving Palestine as well as other subjects?

Civil Estimates, 1938.: Colonial Office. (14 Jun 1938)

Mr Morgan Jones: From our point of view it would be much more desirable to have a general discussion than a more limited discussion. I shall, therefore, postpone my Amendment till later.

Civil Estimates, 1938.: Colonial Office. (14 Jun 1938)

Mr Morgan Jones: Do I understand from the right hon. Gentleman that he does not propose to discuss the Jamaica issue in particular?

Civil Estimates, 1938.: Colonial Office. (14 Jun 1938)

Mr Morgan Jones: I should like to thank the right hon. Gentleman for the very informing speech he has delivered upon a somewhat limited part of the Colonial field. He laid emphasis upon the fact that his predecessor in the Colonial Office, now Lord Harlech, promised last year to present a report giving a survey of the year's work of the Colonial Office, and I should like to join the Colonial Secretary in...

Civil Estimates, 1938.: Colonial Office. (14 Jun 1938)

Mr Morgan Jones: I made no deduction for myself. I was telling the Committee that if people in Jamaica read these facts as we read them, they will, whether they are right or wrong, draw certain conclusions which must necessarily add to their sense of discontent and resentment. I gather that the right hon. Gentleman proposes to embark upon a large-scale policy—I think he called it—of dealing with this...

Civil Estimates, 1938.: Colonial Office. (14 Jun 1938)

Mr Morgan Jones: I find myself in sympathy with a great deal of what the previous speaker has said. I welcome the report which has come from the Colonial Office. I joined in the demand for such a report, and I am glad that the Committee has now an opportunity of bringing under review the policy which is being followed in the various Colonies for which we are responsible. In some respects I think it an...

Civil Estimates, 1938.: Colonial Office. (14 Jun 1938)

Mr Morgan Jones: Will the Commission which is to be appointed be able to remedy political disabilities?

Civil Estimates, 1938.: Colonial Office. (14 Jun 1938)

Mr Morgan Jones: I beg to move, to reduce the Vote by £100.

Oral Answers to Questions — Bombing of Civilians. (30 May 1938)

Mr Morgan Jones: asked the Prime Minister what steps have been taken by His Majesty's Government to give effect to the unanimous Resolution of the House on 2nd February, 1938, with regard to the question of international agreement for the limitation of aerial bombing?

Oral Answers to Questions — Bombing of Civilians. (30 May 1938)

Mr Morgan Jones: Might I ask the Prime Minister personally whether he will answer this question: Is it not a fact that this was a decision of the House of Commons, arrived at very largely at the invitation of the then Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, and would the right hon. Gentleman not, therefore, inform the House whether the Government are prepared to do something, apart from merely studying the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Bombing of Civilians. (30 May 1938)

Mr Morgan Jones: Has the Prime Minister taken any steps at all, with a view to inviting other Powers to come to a conference to discuss the proposals both of our Government and other Governments, rather than wait for us to argue and think out proposals before linking up with other Governments?

Orders of the Day — Ways and Means. (27 Apr 1938)

Mr Morgan Jones: The hon. Member for Stockton-on-Tees (Mr. H. Macmillan) has again delivered a most weighty speech which has interested Members in all parts of the Committee. I sometimes wonder how long it will be before the hon. Member finds his spiritual home. He roams around the home a good deal. The door is open, and whenever he has the courage to cross the threshold I can offer him a warm welcome inside....
