Orders of the Day — Rivers (Prevention of Pollution) Bill: Clause 2. — (Prohibition on Use of Stream for Disposal of Polluting Matter, Refuse, etc.) (31 May 1951)

Mr John Morrison: I should like to support my hon. Friend the Member for Thirsk and Malton (Mr. Turton) and the hon. Member for Gloucestershire, West (Mr. Philips Price), in what they have said rather than my hon. Friend the Member for Clitheroe (Mr. Fort). I do not want to reiterate all the arguments, but I hope the Minister will consider tar in this matter of pollution, for to me it seems to be injurious...

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture: Training Area, Salisbury Plain (15 Mar 1951)

Mr John Morrison: Will the right hon. Gentleman give a clear lead to the farmers concerned about this year's cultivation?

Clause 12. — (Apprehension of Offenders.) (24 Jan 1951)

Mr John Morrison: I should like to take the opportunity of thanking the Secretary of State for including this Amendment. I have an Amendment down on similar lines later which is more or less covered by this one. I should like to ask the Secretary of State to answer the question about tailer, which was invented to protect fish. I hope that that will be covered as well.

Clause 10. — (PowERS OF WATER BAILIFFS.) (24 Jan 1951)

Mr John Morrison: Would the Lord Advocate reconsider this, because I think it is an important proposal, and particu- larly so in regard to the outlying areas of Scotland?

The right hon. and learned...

Rivers (Prevention of Pollution) Bill (27 Nov 1950)

Mr John Morrison: I am one of those fortunate people in whose constituency some of the clearer of our rivers still flow. I apologise to the hon. Member for Lichfield and Tamworth (Mr. Snow) for not following some of the remarks he made in reference to rivers in the Midlands; but he knows them far better than I do. I intervene with a little diffidence in this debate on a complex problem. I do so for three...

Alcester House, Shaftesbury ( 6 Nov 1950)

Mr John Morrison: I wish very briefly to support my hon. Friend and neighbour the Member for Dorset, North (Mr. Crouch). I know Alcester House and it is in a most lovely situation. There is a very considerable difference between an estimate of £50,000 and the figure of £5,000 which the Parliamentary Secretary has just heard. There is no doubt that the moving of old people far from their homes has caused...

Allotments Bill (21 Jun 1950)

Mr John Morrison: Like other hon. Members who have spoken, I want to express my interest in the important part played by allotments in food production and, indeed, in the healthy exercise they provide for those who have at heart the interest of allotments and what they produce. Incidentally, there is no happier man than the gardener of either vegetables or flowers. At this late hour and in order to give the...

Allotments Bill (21 Jun 1950)

Mr John Morrison: I hope the Minister will make that clearer than it is in the Bill. Quite frankly, I did not understand that, but I am glad to hear it.
