Orders of the Day — Road Traffic (Driving Licences) Bill.: New Clause. — (Notices for renewal of licences.) ( 8 May 1936)

Sir Austin Hudson: It will have to be proved that the council has sent out the reminder, and not that the man has received it. It does not relieve motorists from any obligation, as suggested by the hon. Member for Galloway (Mr. McKie).

Private Business.: Caledonian Power Bill (18 Mar 1936)

Mr George Hardie: ...a private monopoly means something more than appears in the Bill. The promoters state that grants in respect of rating, such as they request, have already been made in the cases of the Grampian and Galloway schemes. Here is another instance of the withholding of information. Statements have been printed that are not in accordance with fact. What is the position in regard to these two...

Mr Godfrey Collins: In April this year, officers of the Department of Health investigated complaints regarding a number of hutment camps in the Ken Doon district occupied by men employed on the Galloway Water Power Scheme.

Orders of the Day — Government of India Bill.: Clause 258. — (Provisions as to chaplains.) ( 8 Apr 1935)

Mr Samuel Hoare: I must not be drawn by the eloquence of the hon. Member for Galloway (Mr. McKie) into any kind of controversy about the internal organisation or spiritual foundations of the Presbyterian Church, but let me assure him and the Committee that these sections are really historical sections, which have been in existence, so far as I know, for generations. All that we are doing is repeating them,...

Orders of the Day — Housing (Scotland) Bill. (21 Feb 1935)

Sir Archibald Sinclair: ...of all it was four-fifths of a penny rate, then a lump sum, then a unit sum, and then back again to a lump Sum Who are the chairmen of the housing committees in Angus or Argyll or Caithness or Galloway? Farmers or merchants or professional men. They will have to work this Measure. They will have to get an understanding of it into the heads of their colleagues on the councils, and on the...

Orders of the Day — Electricity (Supply) Bill. (29 Nov 1934)

Mr John Wilmot: came into the market, on both occasions at the very worst possible time, for an issue of £1,000,000 each time. A few days later, to the amazement of the City, there was a borrowing for the Galloway Water Power Company whose interest charges are payable by the Central Electricity Board. This issue again was made when everybody knew that the worst possible rates would be obtained. The...

Orders of the Day — King's Speech.: Debate on the Address. (27 Nov 1934)

Lord Scone: ...although there is indignation in Scotland about the working of this scheme, so far as I am aware, there is no single producer who wants it actually abolished. I hear a remark by the hon. Member for Galloway (Mr. McKie). His area cannot complain. The South-West of Scotland benefits most unfairly at the expense of the East, but, in spite of the fact that the East is suffering so much at the...

Orders of the Day — Cattle Industry (Emergenc Provisions) Bill. (24 Jul 1934) happen, even if his schemes were to fail—which they are not likely to do—the agricultural community of Scotland would stand solidly behind him. From Berwick through Liddesdale to the Mull of Galloway, from Ayrshire to the Lothians shore they stand behind him to a man. Everyone connected with livestock farming has received this emergency scheme, for such it professes to be, with very...

The hon. Member for Galloway (Mr. McKie) has made a similar demand today. We gather from the speech of the Lord President of the Council that new measures are contemplated to deal with the situation.

Orders of the Day — Milk Bill.: Clause 1. — (Exchequer payments in respect of milk sold for manufacture.) (13 Jun 1934)

Mr Walter Elliot: ...,000 were not expended there would be a feeling of betrayal in the minds of the dairy farmers. I cannot imagine anyone who would spend more time in denouncing us than my ton. Friend the Member for Galloway (Mr. McKie) if the amount spent was only £4,999,999. We are working under the terms of the Financial Resolution, which decided upon a guarantee of 5d. in the summer and 6d. in the...

Milk [Money]. (31 May 1934)

Mr Walter Elliot: ...indeed the whole of the milk industry of this country, was courting destruction. In the unorganised state of the market a year or two ago, milk in my own part of the country, in Wigtownshire and Galloway, was being sold as low as 3d. per gallon. You cannot produce to sell milk in this country at 3d. per gallon. Milk at this low price is no advantage even to the consumer, because he is...

Orders of the Day — Shops (Sunday Trading Restriction) (Scotland) Bill. ( 9 Mar 1934)

...has been at one of them with me—of the great principles for which our forefathers were not ashamed to suffer and to die. Between the green hills of the border line and the lonely uplands of Galloway and Carrick there are hallowed spots which the country people hold in the greatest reverence. That is all intimately bound up with this great heritage, which we in Scotland possess, of the...

Orders of the Day — Educational Endowments (Scotland). ( 6 Mar 1934)

Sir James Macpherson: ...of the country, and I have been astonished to find that in all cases, from the remotest part of Orkney and Shetlands, I believe, to the Butt of Lewis, and from the Butt of Lewis to the Mull of Galloway, there have been cases brought to the attention of Members of this House in which the localities, the communities, have been in one way or another aggrieved by the action of the...

Orders of the Day — King's Speech.: Debate on the Address. (23 Nov 1933)

Mr Godfrey Collins: treatment, although I admit that the products in which my hon. Friend the Member for Central Aberdeen is interested—oats and beef—have not yet responded. My hon. Friend the Member for Galloway (Mr. McKie) is interested in the milk scheme. That scheme is going forward, as far as I and my Department are concerned, with all possible speed, and I hope that when it is in force it will...

Civil Estimates, 1933.: Mines Department of the Board of Trade. (29 Jun 1933)

Mr Tom Smith: ...that there were delays years ago, just as there is delay now, in accepting anything new in the mines of this country. As far back as 1844 Faraday pointed out the danger of coal dust explosions. Dr. Galloway resigned his post because he was in conflict with the coalowners of the period. The benefit of stone-dusting was known long before 1920. In the constituency which I have the honour to...

Orders of the Day — Agricultural Marketing Bill. (30 May 1933)

Mr Thomas Williams: of trade, or otherwise they must stand for the home farmer first, possibly the Dominions second, and foreign countries third. but they have pledged themselves, and the hon. Member for Galloway (Mr. McKie) too, right up to the neck, and they cannot escape in May, 1933, from what they did in September, 1932. So much for the false propaganda that is constantly going on about keeping...

Orders of the Day — Agricultural Marketing Bill: Clause 1. — (Regulation of importation of agricultural products.) (29 May 1933)

Sir Herbert Holdsworth: There was one statement which fell from the lips of the hon. Member for Galloway (Mr. McKie) with which every Member will agree, to the effect that it was certain that the Minister would resist this Amendment. This is the most vital Amendment on the Paper. It raises the issue as to whether the agricultural industry shall first make itself efficient and then claim limitation of imports, or...

Rural Industries. (15 Mar 1933)

Mr Walter Elliot: ...audience, which has throughout the evening displayed a remarkable ingenuity in the variety of the subjects it has found possible to raise under this head. It is true that the hon. Member for Galloway (Mr. McKie) was debarred by the Chair from entering into a discussion of the building industry, and I could see him chafing against the restraints of order which kept him from making the...
