Civil Estimates, Supplementary Estimate, 1928.: Class IX. (20 Dec 1928) Scotland for contributions to the funds. The right hon. Gentleman said that the local machinery under the central committee would be our education committees, our Poor Law authorities and our child welfare committees. I have only one criticism to make regarding that proposal. I hope the distribution will not be tinged with the usual Poor Law methods of administration. I hope the fund...

Orders of the Day — Local Government Bill.: Clause 55. — (Relief from rates in respect of industrial and freight-transport hereditaments.) (22 Jan 1929)

Mr William Briggs: ...have unanimously condemned the health Clauses of this Bill, because of their inability to increase the opportunity to develop the two services in which they are interested, namely, maternity and child welfare. [Interruption.] The women of this country say that under this Bill there is no opportunity for the development of these two services. I say that, that being so, on the one hand here...

Orders of the Day — Local Government Bill.: Clause 73. — (General Exchequer grants to districts.) (24 Jan 1929)

Sir Kingsley Wood: ...but he has overlooked the fact that, as a consequence, there would also have to be removed a provision as to the deduction of another sum relating to those authorities which undertake maternity and child welfare services. I think the hon. Member has also overlooked the fact that as regards rural districts, in parts of which there are special or parish rates, we have provided that a sum is...

Sir Percy Harris: ...with its high wages spends £118,000 a year, but the City of London spends £260,000 and the City of Westminster £258,000. My own little modest borough spends £66,000. If you take maternity and child welfare then the City of London does show economy. It spends £320, against Poplar's £5,300 and Bethnal Green's £4,200, but on the more expensive services, like the provision of public...

Orders of the Day — Local Government Bill.: Clause 82. — (Payment of Supplementary Exchequer Grants in London.) (28 Jan 1929)

Mr George Lansbury: ...hon. Gentleman opposite knows better than his supporters, our financial ability to do so will have been reduced by 25 per cent. At present we are badly supplied with clinics, and with maternity and child-welfare centres because of our poverty. The right hon. Gentleman knows that with our rateable value and with the money at our disposal we do the best we can. By "we" I mean the council. I...

Mr Walter Greaves-Lord: services have been strengthened, in my opinion, under this Bill this is a respect in which a good many of them are being seriously endangered. The services in connection with maternity and child welfare, mental defectives and the blind will be materially affected if anything is done that diminishes the efficiency of the measures that are take on for the prevention of the curative...

Orders of the Day — Local Government Bill.: Clause 86. — (Power to reduce grants.) (29 Jan 1929)

Mr John Palin: At the risk of being miserable once more I must say that I cannot accept the optimistic observations of the right hon. Gentleman. As a matter of fact, there are a large number of efficient child welfare centres, they are almost models, but they are totally inadequate for the needs of the particular district. The Minister of Health is not prepared to accept any suggestion on the part of the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Distressed Areas.: Lord Mayor's Fund. (4 Feb 1929)

...when the Government grant was made. For this, no scales of assistance have yet been laid down, except that provisionally, pending the organisation of the local committees, the maternity and child welfare authorities in South Wales were invited to arrange for supplementary nourishment for mothers by the issue of vouchers on local tradesmen up to 2s. 6d. a week. In Northumberland and Durham...

Mr John Wheatley: ...that has taken place during the past 30 or 40 years in the civic duties of a corporation like that of the City of Glasgow. Thirty or 40 years ago they had no trouble in looking after trams, gas, child welfare or scores of things which they do to-day. Think of the enormous responsibility of the increased duties which have been placed upon their shoulders during the past 10 years in regard...

Local Government (Scotland) Bill. (5 Feb 1929)

Mr John Wheatley: ...eyes of the people. Glasgow has had an opportunity of applying this system of co-option, and the Glasgow Corporation have refused to apply it. They have power to co-opt members in the case of the child welfare committee, but they have refused to take advantage of that provision. I submit that all this parading of the co-opted member as being something likely to give us more superior...

Orders of the Day — Local Government (Scotland) Bill.: Clause 14. — (Schemes for administration of functions.) (7 Feb 1929)

Mr John Wheatley: ...Acts of Parliament when we are without books of reference and I think it is not unreasonable to ask the Lord Advocate what are those enactments. I know that one of them will be the Act dealing with child welfare and all that appertains to child welfare. But what are the others? I think, before coming to a decision, we should be guided by our legal authorities on the Front Bench, in whose...

Orders of the Day — Local Government Bill.: Clause 15. — (Recovery of Expenses.) (12 Feb 1929)

Mr Samuel March: ...charges for staff and upkeep of the institutions. Many people would sooner stay at home and suffer than have that large liability placed upon them. Then there is the question of the maternity and child welfare benefit. Some little time ago we heard the Minister stating that this kind of treatment was becoming very popular, but this kind of treatment will soon get unpopular if people have...

Orders of the Day — Local Government Bill: Clause 76. — (Discontinuance of grants.) (13 Feb 1929)

Member for North Kensington (Mr. Gates)—in page 62, line 9, at the end, to insert the words: Provided always that the grants for maternity and child welfare shall not be discontinued grants until the end of seven years from the appointed day"— would impose a charge and therefore are out of order.
