Cattle (Artificial Insemination) (22 Jul 1953)

Orders of the Day — Dogs (Protection of Livestock) Bill (13 Mar 1953)

Home-Grown Timber (Policy) ( 5 Dec 1952)

Mr John Morrison: I should declare my personal interest in this debate by saying that I speak as a private woodland owner. I am very happy to follow the hon. Gentleman the Member for Ince (Mr. T. Brown) in his remarks. I support him in practically everything he said, and I certainly agree with him in what he said about the beauty of the silver birch. I also support his idea of reclaiming much of the...

Orders of the Day — AGRICULTURE (POISONOUS SUBSTANCES) BILL [Lords] (21 Oct 1952)

Mr John Morrison: I wish to support this Bill and I welcome it. I congratulate my right hon. Friend the Minister on producing it before the end of the Session. I am sure it will be welcomed by all those who are working in agriculture and will be of great help to them. I would express the hope that those men working with sprays will take particular care regarding protective clothing and of their arms. Whenever...

Orders of the Day — AGRICULTURE (POISONOUS SUBSTANCES) BILL [Lords] (21 Oct 1952)

Mr John Morrison: I was about to go to the root of the trouble in this way. At the end of the winter before last a number of cattle on my farm died through lack of magnesium. It may well be that the root of the trouble lies there, because if the poisonous sprays kill all of what used to be called weeds, which have the longer tap-roots, we shall not be getting those plants which should be bringing up some of...

Mr John Morrison: While I am sure that hon. Members on both sides of the House will wish to associate themselves with my right hon. Friend's expression of sympathy for the bereaved and for the injured and homeless, may I ask if he is aware that those who lent a hand at the scene of the tragedy should be congratulated on the rescue work which they performed? Is my right hon. Friend further aware that there is...

Orders of the Day — ESSEX COUNTY COUNCIL BILL (By Order): Part XIV. — (Supply of Heat by Dagenham Corporation.) (25 Jun 1952)

Mr John Morrison: I do not wish to detain the House for long, or to obstruct a Bill which, I am sure is in many ways a most admirable one. As my constituency has been mentioned by my hon. Friend the Member for Croydon, East (Sir H. Williams), I should like to say that I believe that he has done a useful service to the House in bringing this matter to the notice of all of us here this evening. Certainly, the...

Orders of the Day — Agricultural Land, Wiltshire (Use) ( 1 May 1952)

Mr John Morrison: I welcome the opportunity of supporting my hon. Friend, and I am glad he has raised the matter. Wiltshire has had many calls from the Service Departments, and we realise the necessity of training for our forces. But we also realise, especially on the evening following two days debate in another place on the importance of agricultural production, that we should grow as much food as we can. I...

Orders of the Day — Army Estimates, 1952–53, and Army Supplementary Estimate, 1951–52: Vote 8. Works, Buildings and Lands (24 Mar 1952)

Mr John Morrison: My right hon. Friend has mentioned the question of training on Salisbury Plain, and I should like to take the opportunity of thanking both him and the Under-Secretary of State for the replies they have given me as one who represents a large military area and one who has often bothered them. In my lifetime, Salisbury Plain has been very considerably denuded of cover for all sorts for...

Orders of the Day — FORESTRY BILL [Lords] ( 6 Jul 1951)

Mr John Morrison: I hope that the hon. Member for Bootle (Mr. Kinley) will not think me discourteous if I do not follow him in great detail, but I should like to refer to two points he made and to say how much I agree with him. First, with regard to shelter belts which have not been mentioned before in this debate, I am sure that more could be done, especially in Scotland, to provide them. Their provision...

Orders of the Day — FORESTRY BILL [Lords] ( 6 Jul 1951)

Mr John Morrison: I am obliged. All the same, it was rather inconvenient for the Members concerned. I do not wish to delay the House longer, for I know there are other hon. Members anxious to take part in the debate, and time is short; but I hope that we shall consider, if not in the course of this Bill, at some time, the question of a 10 year system of laying aside our land for forestry. Can we in a small...

Third Schedule. — (Repeals.) ( 4 Jun 1951)

Mr John Morrison: As other hon. Members have said, I am sure no one wants a long speech on this beautiful evening, an evening which hon. Members opposite, and you, Mr. Speaker, will appreciate is 4th June, a date which is connected irreparably with a certain section of the River Thames mentioned in an earlier part of this Bill. I hope this Bill will help not only the bottom sections of the River Thames, but...
