Sir Francis Acland: ...a total very considerably higher than the amount we paid for the whole of the land, including the agricultural land. There we shall have planted nearly 200 acres by 31st March. At Brackley Hatch, Northamptonshire, we paid £2,550 for 524 acres, and 57½ acres of that is let is 45s. an acre.

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Mines Bill. (30 Jun 1920)

Sir Henry Betterton: ...in the possession of the State without any fresh inquiries at all. If anyone in the House cares to take the trouble to pursue the report which was issued, for instance, by the Minister of Mines in South Africa, he will see that all this information, which would have been of such value to us in time of war, is published year by year in South Africa, and that is precisely the sort of...

Mr Noel Buxton: I may be allowed to deal, first, with two or three suggestions which were rather apart, in their general bearing, from this Debate. My right hon. Friend the Member for South Molton (Mr. Lambert) raised the question of a possible source of infection in hides. We are always looking out for possible sources of infection, but I am sure there is no more danger in these hides, which are absolutely...

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: ...I do not think it is humanly possible to draft any scheme which would obtain unanimous support among those affected. 4.0 p.m. The Ouse is the third longest river in this country.

Orders of the Day — Rural Housing. ( 4 Apr 1928)

...particularly to England. I will refer only briefly to specimens which we have in England and which do not exist in any other country. There are the half-timbered cottages of the Midlands and the South, there are the Cotswold stone houses, and in Northamptonshire the yellow stone cottages. Those who advocate new houses as against bringing these beautiful old buildings up to date do not...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Mr. MONTAGUE'S STATEMENT. (18 Mar 1930)

Mr Cecil Malone: ...he will not have been able to devote himself to the question. I should like to make a suggestion in regard to Transatlantic routes. The French are making preparations to cross the Atlantic to the South. I believe we can take a very reasonable and cautious step to shorten the Transatlantic passage by developing flying off from liners. I should like to know whether the Ministry have...

Import Duties Act, 1932. ( 4 May 1932)

Mr Thomas Griffiths: ...on many other occasions. He has dealt with the iron and steel industry in the Sheffield district and I, in the short time I propose to occupy, am going to deal with the industry from Scotland to South Wales. The Chancellor of the Exchequer this afternoon explained this new Order in such a clear and concise way that everybody in the House could understand it. He is an unrepentent...

Distressed Areas. (13 Jul 1932)

Mr Joseph Leckie: ...represent Northern areas, but I want to emphasise that the depressed areas are not confined to any one part of the country. The industrial Midlands in which I live, the East End of London and South Wales are equally in the same boat. Some appalling figures have been got out for me by the Town Clerk of Walsall on this question. They show that in England and Wales there are 113 towns with...

Orders of the Day — Agricultural Marketing Bill. (20 Mar 1933)

Mr Clement Attlee: ...a large number. I have another interesting series of figures as to the actual money which the working miner takes home. I have a sample of a group of miners—I am told a very typical sample of the South Wales coal area. In that group there are 24 adults and 43 children. When these figures are worked out after allowing for the bare minimum of food and for rent they have 46s. a week between...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Mr. DUFF COOPER'S STATEMENT. (15 Mar 1934)

Mr Duff Cooper: ...High Commissioner had of the psychology of the people among whom he was living, was proved by the result that the situation resolved itself immediately into peace and quiet. One battalion of the Northamptonshire Regiment had done the trick. We could not convey a tank or an armoured car in those aeroplanes to Iraq, in that way, and if we could, they were not the weapons that were needed....

Orders of the Day — Electricity (Supply) Bill.: Clause 2. — (Amendment of s. 11 of Electricity (Supply) Act, 1926.) ( 5 Dec 1934)

Mr Herbert Williams: ...regard to electricity supply. I did not receive information officially, and I do not know where it came from, but I believe that Clause 2 owes its existence very largely to a great enterprise in Northamptonshire where they make tubes —the firm of Messrs. Stewarts and Lloyd. Whether this be correct or not, I do not know, but it is probably one of the instances. Naturally when the firm...

Import Duties Act, 1932. (12 Apr 1935)

Mr David Grenfell: ..., is iron ore which is not mined at all, but quarried in open cut. A serious consideration in regard to the future position of this industry is the tendency to move further away from Cumberland and South Wales and North Lancashire, to the locality of surface beds of iron ore in Lincolnshire, Northamptonshire and Oxfordshire, where a low grade iron ore can be mined chiefly by mechanical...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Board of Trade. (18 Jul 1935)

Mr David Grenfell: ...These three industries are the main industries of my constituency and the industrial area to which I belong. There has been a pronouncement this week which has brought consternation to the whole of South Wales. I want to give the setting, as we see it, of this problem. The President of the Board of Trade is familiar with it, but the House and the country may not be familiar. This...

Orders of the Day — Industrial Depression. (23 Jul 1935)

Mr Arthur Greenwood: ...it is not uninteresting that whilst according to official figures the infant mortality rate in England and Wales stands at 64 per 1,000 births, in Durham and on Tyneside it is 80.8 per 1,000, in South Wales 78.3, and in Cumberland, 71. It is true that the death-rate in those areas is only slightly higher than the general death-rate, but the fact that the new lives that are born into the...

Orders of the Day — Ways and Means.: Amendment of Law. (23 Apr 1936)

Mr James Griffiths: ...they are going to claim credit for having restored some measure of prosperity in some areas by tariffs, they cannot escape responsibility for the areas which their tariffs have injured. I come from South Wales, from an area which during the last 100 years has contributed as much to the national treasure as any area of comparable size in this country. A continuous stream of trade has gone...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Civil Estimates, 1936. (15 Jul 1936)

Mr James Griffiths: ...? For 12 months there has been at Llanelly a fear that they might transfer their works from Llanelly, which has a population of 40,000 and is entirely dependent upon this one trade, to a village in Northamptonshire, which has a population of less than 5,000. It would be creating a new town in one part of the country and destroying another town in another part of the country, and we say...
