Sir Francis Fremantle: ...all stages. There is also the possibility of co-ordination in matters pertaining to motherhood and childhood by co-ordinating the Acts which deal with midwives, notification of births, maternity and child welfare and school medical services, which are at present administered by different authorites.

Orders of the Day — Local Government Bill. (28 Nov 1928)

Mr Sidney Webb: ...will be seriously adverse to the further development of the optional services. There are places which say they do not want the optional services, that they do not want to trouble about maternity and child welfare or tuberculosis, because their districts are healthy.

Orders of the Day — Local Government Bill. (28 Nov 1928)

Mr Robert Sanders: ...they thought they had to bear an unnecessary part of the burden. That is taken away now, and I do not think this opposition will be quite so strong in the future.

Sir Kingsley Wood: given towards making good any loss of special and parish rates sustained by rural district councils. Thirdly, there is a sum allocated to each county district, carrying on its own maternity and child welfare service.

Orders of the Day — Local Government (Scotland) Bill. (4 Dec 1928)

...anxieties of a large section of our critics in the country. I want to make one suggestion in regard to the financial side—I refer to the question of the block grants in regard to maternity and child welfare services. It was suggested by the Noble Lady the Member for the Sutton Division of Plymouth (Viscountess Astor) that for a time at any rate the percentage grants should be continued...

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

Major-General Sir Robert Hutchison: ...that they will not be losers by this transaction. I trust that for Scotland the same promise, which was made by the Minister of Health, will be made by the Secretary for Scotland, that maternity and child welfare services will be continued on a percentage basis, or at least be so safeguarded that they will not suffer. My next point is this: Is there any guarantee that the money taken from...

Orders of the Day — Local Government [Money]. (14 Dec 1928)

Sir Kingsley Wood: ...necessitous and hardly-pressed areas under the present arrangement is an impossible one, and, if you examine the figures, as I have been doing in the last few days, in connection with maternity and child welfare, anyone who wants to see a fair sum of money expended in these hardly-pressed areas could not possibly defend the percentage system, because the very places that ought to be...

Local Government (Scotland) [Money]. (14 Dec 1928)

Mr George Buchanan: ...the community which they govern. I am not complaining about that, because they are the elected body, but on the other hand there are the advanced, authorities, who wish to develop social services, child welfare services, etc. If at the end of four years an allocation is to be made, it will be based on what has been spent by the reactionary local authorities who refuse to spend anything in...

Oral Answers to Questions — Distressed Mining Areas.: Prime Minister's Statement. (17 Dec 1928)

Mr Stanley Baldwin: ...have already initiated and are resolved to pursue. Apart altogether from the heavy cost of the normal social services, including unemployment insurance, school medical services and maternity and child welfare—and apart, also from the proposals for the relief of industry and rates embodied in the Local Government Bills—the special provision made by the Exchequer for assistance to the...

Orders of the Day — Local Government Bill.: Clause 5. — (Public Assistance Committee.) (17 Dec 1928)

Mr George Lansbury: the orders laid down by the Ministry and by the law itself, and very considerable investigation into the means, etc., of the person concerned has to take place. In the case of an infant and child welfare centre, or a maternity centre there is an entirely different spirit. Many members of this Committee have had as much experience as I have had in these matters, and they know perfectly...

Orders of the Day — Local Government Bill.: Clause 9. — (Disqualifications.) (17 Dec 1928)

Mr Ernest Brown: .... Gentleman seems to be precisely the same as that raised in an Amendment earlier on the Paper which was not called.

Member for Consett (Mr. Dunnico)—in page 11, line 13, to leave out the words "maternity home"—also covers the point laid down in the Clause about the operation of the Maternity and Child Welfare Act. I take it that that will not be in order, according to our drafting, unless there is an Amendment of this kind preceding it.
