Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 7. — (Imperial Preference.) (9 Jul 1919)

Mr Sydney Arnold: I beg to move, to leave out the word sugar. First of all, Sir Edwin, I want to put to you a point of Order. I have a new Clause down on the Paper later for the purpose of abolishing the Sugar Duty altogether, as I am opposed to it root and branch. If this present Amendment should be rejected, the effect would be that the Committee would have decided that there is to be an Excise Duty on sugar...

Orders of the Day — GOVERNMENT OF INDIA (Re-committed) BILL,: Clause 4. — (Appointment of Ministers and council Secretaries.) (3 Dec 1919)

Mr Edwin Montagu: ...In the second place, the carrying of the Amendment would deprive the Legislative Council of all control over the salary of its Ministers. That may be a good thing or a bad thing, but it cuts at the root of the whole question of responsible government. If the Council cannot fix the salary of a Minister responsible to it, we have made a very great change in the relations between the...

Orders of the Day — King's Speech.: Relief Schemes (Government Assistance). (30 Nov 1922)

Sir Edwin Stockton: ...during the War period against State control and State trading, and there is no business man in Manchester with any knowledge or experience of business, who would not condemn State trading root and branch as something which is against the best interests of the people. Private enterprise means sound and healthy competition; State trading means inflation and stagnation. Hon. Members of the...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Scottistt Board of Health. (6 Apr 1925)

Mr Edwin Scrymgeour: ...attention, I want to submit—and I think it is appropriate that it should come from this side of the House, and I would have expected it to be emphasised before now—that housing is not a root question, it is a branch question. If you are going to deal with root questions concerning diseases, and the awful conditions that are prevalent in our industrial cities, in places like Glasgow,...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Scottish Board of Health. (11 Feb 1926)

Mr Edwin Scrymgeour: ...of a certain size and constructed of a certain class of material does not at all determine the factors which have got to be dealt with outside of this question, which is a branch question and not a root question. The central point here to-day, as it has been emphasised to us by representatives of the Corporation in Dundee, is that undoubtedly a very determined effort is being made by Lord...

Orders of the Day — Civil Services and Revenue Departments Estimates and Supplementary Estimates, 1926–27.: Air Force Estimates, 1926–27. (28 Jul 1926)

Mr Edwin Scrymgeour: ...to be that where there is the larger number of people gathered together there should be all the more facilities for sustaining this particular trouble. I do not recognise the housing question as a root question at all. With all the promotion of better housing by this or any other Government, so long as these social evils exist and produce substantial profits, even at this very hour, with...

Orders of the Day — Local Government (Scotland) [Money]. (5 Dec 1928)

Mr Edwin Scrymgeour: ...from this scheme, it certainty points to the fact that this is a miserable fiasco of an attempt at what the right hon. Member for Hillhead (Sir R. Horne) described yesterday as getting down to the roots of the question. There are about 75 burghs that are going to lose on this business. The hon. Member for Perth and Kinross was pointing out that two parishes in his constituency will be...

Orders of the Day — Local Government Bill and Local Government (Scotland) Bill (Allocation of Time). (11 Dec 1928)

Mr Edwin Scrymgeour: ...in this House. You might just as well put forward a Bill arid tell us it is going through in two or three days as in the number of days spoken of now. In Scotland you are tearing up by the very roots old-established localised government. The proposals were never submitted to the country. This proposal is presented at r, late stage of the Government's existence, and now, as the Prime...

Orders of the Day — Local Government (Scotland) Bill.: Clause 1. — (Transfer of functions of parish councils and district boards of control to county councils and town councils of large burghs.) (4 Feb 1929)

Mr Edwin Scrymgeour: ...as to how things in Scotland are to be improved were quite a blank. I am sure these proposals will constitute a blank for the Government at the next General Election in Scotland. This tearing up root and branch of the Scottish local authorities in reference to the great needs of Scotland is treating this question in a way which is utterly discreditable. I hope every Scottish Member will...

Orders of the Day — Housing (Scotland) Bill. (10 Apr 1930)

Mr Edwin Scrymgeour: ...a most important one for Scotland. A point which has been urged in connection with this Bill and which I would like to hear emphasised from the Labour benches is that we are not here dealing with a root question—which is unfortunately the impression left by previous discussions on this issue—but that we are only dealing with a branch question. All through the speeches from both sides...

Orders of the Day — Ways and Means.: Amendment of Law. (29 Apr 1931)

Mr Robert Taylor: ...a large part of the earth, notably in Spain and in Central and South America, revolutions have taken place. These two factors—the fall in commodity prices and political disturbances—are at the root of most of the difficulties with which the Chancellor was faced and which led to the deficit of £23,000,000. The estimates in this year's Budget provide for a revenue of £776,000,000 and...

Indian Policy. (2 Dec 1931)

Sir Hamilton Kerr: ...society into four grades. In all these various compartments, separated from each other by ancient traditions, prejudices, and social customs, we find that it is very difficult for democracy to take root. Because, if we look at India, it resembles almost a honeycomb, where each little particular section is divided from the others by walls of prejudice and ancient custom. Among the Brahmins...

Orders of the Day — Agricultural Wages (Regulation) Bill (25 Nov 1946)

Mr Edwin Gooch: ...is a great calling, even from the workers' standpoint. I do not want farm workers to decry their industry, but to take pride in it, as I am sure they will. I agree that bad housing goes to the root of social discontent in rural areas. I want an abundance of houses—and free houses—sited in villages, with other amenities. I think the amenities are necessary, if we are to build up and...

Orders of the Day — King's Speech: Debate on the Address (23 Oct 1947)

Mr Alan Lennox-Boyd: ...hon. and learned Gentleman has gathered round him a team of people who are largely of his own choosing. If I may strike a personal note, I should like to give a particular personal welcome to Sir Edwin Plowden who is the Chief Planning Adviser to the Government, and with whom—I was Under-Secretary to the right hon. and learned Gentleman in the closing period of the war—I had close...

Orders of the Day — King's Speech: Debate on the Address (8 Mar 1950)

Mr Edwin Leather: ...lives of all our people, we must rely a great deal more on our own strength and vigour than on any paper treaties. I believe that strength can only be based on a strong foreign policy and that the root of any strong British foreign policy must be based on the British Empire. Some hon. Members opposite may be puzzled at my Somerset accent. My accent is Canadian. I am proud to think that,...

Agriculture and Horticulture (4 Apr 1952)

Mr Edwin Gooch: ...becomes law. I am very grateful to the Minister of Agriculture for offering readily to complete the work that was started by my right hon. Friend when he was the Minister. Housing goes to the root of social discontent in rural England. We want more houses, and I hope that they will all be free. Transport in rural areas has got to be extended, particularly for the farm worker's wife and...

Orders of the Day — Hill Farming Bill (18 Feb 1954)

Mr Edwin Gooch: ...the part of the County Landowners' Association and the National Farmers' Union. I put it to you that there would never have been a Bill but for the agitation of these two organisations. That is the root of the Bill. The right hon. Gentleman has been good enough to offer an explanation tonight that no offence was meant in not consulting our union when the Bill was first discussed.

Orders of the Day — Queen's Speech: Debate on the Address (2 Dec 1954)

Mr Edwin Gooch: ...to congratulate him on the speech he made in seconding the Motion for the Address. I do so, as he knows very well, most sincerely. It was the kind of speech that I expected from a Member with his roots deep down in the soil. When a friend of mine, the late Sir George Edwards, made a maiden speech in this House a newspaper referred to his "earth clodden sentences." That was a compliment to...

Clause 1. — (Introduction of New Housing Subsidies.) (25 Jan 1956)

Mr Edwin Gooch: ...causes the drift from the land, but there is a great deal to be said for the argument that lack of houses makes the women begin to think and to urge their men into the towns. Bad housing is at the root of much social discontent. I have been in local government work for a good many years. I have served not only upon the county council but upon rural and urban district councils, so I know...

Orders of the Day — Electricity Bill (17 Dec 1956)

Mr Charles Howell: ...offer of promotion inside the industry. There is no question that people who take these promotions within the industry remain in it because of their inherent love of the industry and because their roots are so deep inside the industry. This question of fantastic salaries offered by private enterprise was referred to by the hon. Member for Kidderminster (Mr. Nabarro) but we have to...
