Orders of the Day — Local Government Bill. (18 Feb 1929)

Mr Neville Chamberlain: ...House of Commons does not take any such childish view of its duties as that. Nobody who listened to the debates will dispute for one moment that the discussions on such matters as the maternity and child welfare services, the future of the Poor Law, the administration of the transferred functions, the de-rating of various kinds of property, the working of the formula, and the financial...

Mr Ernest Brown: look at what this means, first of all with regard to Scotland, and secondly, with regard to the City of Edinburgh.

...for public authorities to deal with. I can remember very well being present at the opening of the first children's clinic in the City of Glasgow by a little group of women who were concerned about child welfare. It has all developed very quickly, and it has all developed along the same lines. I regard this proposal as another definite stage in the fight against this terrible scourge,...

Orders of the Day — Local Government (Scotland) Bill.: Clause 50. — (Power to reduce grants for inefficiency.) (22 Feb 1929)

Mr William Watson: I beg to move, in page 45, line 1, after the word "health," to insert the words services (including services relating to maternity and child welfare, lunacy and mental deficiency, and the welfare of the blind). This Amendment is proposed in order to make it clear that the Clause applies to welfare services as well as to purely health services.

Sir Kingsley Wood: The measures taken to prevent the onset of rickets 'and to deal with such cases as arise are a matter, in the first instance, for the maternity and child welfare authorities of these areas.

Mr James Stewart: ...expenses from those who are legally liable. That is extending to public health what is at present applicable to the Poor Law. It may be that the charge will be recoverable. Under the Maternity and Child Welfare Act, 1915, we have provided maternity hospitals and clinics and nursing homes, and otherwise extended maternity and child welfare work. Now we are to make a charge. We have 2,600...

Sir Archibald Sinclair: ...are more fortunately situated. I may mention, for example, that the County of Sutherland has found itself unable to work the Housing of Rural Workers Act, and in the County of Caithness we have no child welfare or maternity services. There is one in the burgh of Wick but none in the county as a whole. We have been absolutely unable, owing to this great burden of rates, to obtain the same...

Rothesay is an up-to-date place, providing all the sanitary appliances which many large cities supply; goes in for child welfare and the provision of hospitals, and has a great and developing population. Surely this is a case where the right hon. Gentleman might import into the Bill some elasticity which...

Orders of the Day — Local Government (Scotland) Bill.: Clause 10. — (Provisions for uniting burghs and combining counties for certain purposes.) (6 Mar 1929)

Mr James Stuart: ...importance of this matter and their independence. Although there is no formal scheme for dealing with tubercular cases, adequate provision is made in this respect. In connection with maternity and child welfare, there is a district nursing service and an arrangement with local doctors to attend in case a child is ill. I do not want to detain the House unnecessarily on this subject. I have...

Orders of the Day — Local Government (Scotland) Bill. (11 Mar 1929)

Dr Thomas Shiels: ...source. Any saving to the Treasury in respect of public health development means heavier burdens on depleted local re-sources. In my opinion this is one of the bad features of the Bill. Even child welfare and maternity services could not he saved from the change, though we used all our endeavours. I am more hopeful about the hospital sections of the Bill than about any other part of it....

Orders of the Day — Board of Education. (23 Apr 1929)

...for these small children in elementary schools. Some of the leading education authorities prefer these. Last, but not least, as affecting the general health of all the children under five, we have a child welfare service. Those are four agencies for dealing with what is not only an important problem, but a two-fold problem. Is it not reasonable that we should have a little fuller time for...

Lieut-Colonel Leo Amery: ...throughout the Colonial Empire. In every direction governors and administrators have shown the greatest enthusiasm, often splendidly supported by their wives, more particularly in the matter of child welfare and maternity, in improving the health conditions of the peoples under our charge.

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Ministry of Health. (1 May 1929)

Mr Neville Chamberlain: ...all over the country at the present time. The four State-aided health services which come under the Ministry of Health are tuberculosis, venereal disease, the welfare of the blind, and maternity and child welfare.

She can have attention provided for her, either by a competent midwife or a...

Mr John Jones: to back the Minister of Health in the action he has taken. Could you have a greater condemnation than the figures which I have here? Noble Ladies and other people talk about their interest in child welfare and maternity and other things. They talk about these things on platforms. What is the position under the so-called commissioners with the sympathetic hearts? Their hearts are...
