Orders of the Day — Military Expenditure and Disarmament. (23 Jul 1923)

Mr Frank Rose: ...each. I wonder whether my hon. Friends on these benches have ceased from wondering why it is that economies must be effected. Do they wonder why a few hundred thousand pounds is not available for child welfare? They do not understand the elements of economy. You do not need to fatten babies when later they are to be killed with bombs. Thin babies are quite as good as fat babies to be hit...

Orders of the Day — Consolidated Fund (Appropriation) Bill.: Public Health. (1 Aug 1923)

Mr Samuel March: ..., make it a national question, and not put so much imposition on the local authorities, which are already overburdened, as we are, in connection with cases of this description.

Not only is it being done by paid health visitors, but by voluntary people who...

Orders of the Day — Representation of the People Act (1918) Amendment Bill. (29 Feb 1924)

.... 12 N. Yet these are bodies on which the services of women are not only invaluable but necessary. No public body can efficiently administer poor law, education, public health, or maternity and child welfare without the assistance of women. These local public bodies are not receiving the benefit of all the special service which women can render, and I feel sad to think that we have not yet...

Sir John Marriott: ...the existence of a number of cases where authorities whose explicit or implicit duty it was to know the resources of applicants for assistance—Poor Law authorities, education, maternity and child welfare, and tuberculosis authorities—were not aware of grants of assistance to the same individual or to the same household made by other authorities.

During the same time we are spending, for England alone, not counting Scotland and Wales, £70,000 less this year on providing milk for expectant mothers and on child welfare under the special powers of the Ministry of Health, and I put it to the House that it would be much more valuable if this money could be spent on providing milk for expectant mothers...

...can undertake of a health producing character which will find work for their own unemployed. There are the questions of additional schools, school clinics, hospitals, playgrounds, maternity and child welfare centres—all works of a useful character—and instead of spending, as we were doing last year in Middlesbrough, something like one million of money in unemployment pay and in relief...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: Clause 6. — (Rate of Entertainments Duty.) (30 Jun 1924)

Lady Vera Terrington: ...hard work once I have satisfied myself on the point. Quite apart from the hospitals—and God knows they need money badly enough—it is not perhaps generally realised that institutions devoted to child welfare, nursing associations, orphanages, and many other charities are sufferers under the law as it stands. If you are having an open-air fête, for instance, there is always the question...

...of the medical relief to which they are entitled; and expectant mothers and nursing mothers and their infants and children under five years may receive it through the medium of the maternity and child welfare schemes.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: New Clause, — (Provisions as to bequests to hospitals.) (2 Jul 1924)

Mr Charles Masterman: If there is, let me submit to the noble Lord that he must immediately come on to a long series of institutions which are every bit as deserving as hospitals, and are in effect hospitals, child welfare societies and all the others, and this would apply to everything practically which is left to any charitable institution at all. We have a right to say to men who wish to leave their money to...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Scottish Board of Health. (3 Jul 1924)

Mr James Stewart: ...I have already referred. The local authorities will now receive in grant 50 per cent of all reasonable expenditure in connection with the treatment of this disease. With regard to maternity and child welfare, in the year 1923 the deaths of children under one year numbered 80,825, which is equivalent to a death rate of 78.9 per thousand births. This is the lowest infantile death-rate ever...

Orders of the Day — Public Health (Scotland) Amendment Bill. (4 Mar 1925)

Dr Thomas Shiels: grounds. At the present time local authorities have a very heavy public health expenditure, but they are relieved from a great deal of that by Treasury grants. In the case of maternity and child welfare they get 50 per cent., and in the case of venereal disease as much as 75 per cent. of the cost. There is no proposal in this Bill for any Treasury assistance. On the last occasion...

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

Mr Walter Elliot: ...years ago, when reviewing the public health record, I chose three sections to represent the situation, namely, the return of adult sickness as reflected in the statistics under the Insurance Act; child welfare, as represented in infantile mortality, and the community resistance to disease, as measured by the figures of deaths from tuberculosis. It seemed to me that upon these three factors...

Mr Frank Rye: ...made by the State. I will give one instance which will be sufficient to refute his argument. Let me remind him that the State contributes 50 per cent. of the moneys expended under the Maternity and Child Welfare Act of 1918. As Poplar has adopted that Act, it must be clear to the House that the State does contribute to the finances of Poplar. Quite apart from any contributions out of State...

Orders of the Day — Contributory Pensions Bill. (15 Jul 1925)

Mr Neville Chamberlain: I am referring to Clause 40. I have on the Paper an Amendment to insert a new Sub-section (5), which has reference to the expenses incurred by a local education committee or a maternity and child welfare committee, and I have provided there that in the ease of a county council, if the Minister by order so direct, the expense may be an expense for special county purposes. That is the matter I...

Mr George Garro-Jones: ...providing that non-county borough councils and urban district councils, in cases where those bodies were both education authorities and the authorities empowered to administer the Maternity and Child Welfare Act, 1918, should have power to administer this Measure.
