Orders of the Day — Representation of the People Bill: New Clause. — (Superannuation rights of contributory employees in England and Wales.) (14 Jun 1948)

Mr Charles White: It is not often that I intervene in Debates in this House, and I should not have intervened today if I had not heard three or four speeches from the other side of the House. I have heard Toryism in varying degrees in the mining districts of Derbyshire, and in the other part of Derbyshire four years ago in a by-election but I have never heard such utter nonsense about the conduct of elections...

Orders of the Day — Representation of the People Bill: New Clause. — (Superannuation rights of contributory employees in England and Wales.) (14 Jun 1948)

Mr Charles White: ...all the worse. It is remarkable, at a time of a by-election or a General Election, what a tremendous number of cars are controlled by the occupants of those ducal castles. I fought a by-election in 1938. There were 600 cars for the Tory candidates, despite the fact that it was a by-election, and all we could muster was fewer than 60. The number of votes which that meant to the Tory...

Orders of the Day — Food and Drugs (Milk and Dairies) Bill (19 May 1944)

Mr Charles White: I did not anticipate having such strange bedfellows in this Debate to-day, because I definitely support the Amendment, and I do so for two reasons. First, the retention of the powers and facilities of our local authorities is a matter of vital importance. Their powers should not be whittled away at this time, when so many of the men and women of the country have not the opportunity of...

Orders of the Day — Food and Drugs (Milk and Dairies) Bill (19 May 1944)

Mr Charles White: That is where my hon. and gallant Friend makes a mistake.

Orders of the Day — Food and Drugs (Milk and Dairies) Bill (19 May 1944)

Mr Charles White: I am not here to say what is often said about the small trader. That is another matter altogether. But in reply to what has been said in this Debate; just as I am referring to the difficulties of milk distribution, so I am trying to straighten up the position of the local committee which is often frustrated by a Government Department. I say that this is not encouraging to the people who are...

Orders of the Day — Food and Drugs (Milk and Dairies) Bill (19 May 1944)

Mr Charles White: ...the sympathy of the men and women who are serving on public authorities in the country. There is much more to be done in this matter than has been mentioned to-day. In my own county, in the 10 years prior to the war, through the energetic action of the public health committee, the figures of tuberculosis were reduced to a very great extent. It is only the war that has prevented us carrying...

Emergency Powers (Defence) (General Regulations): Strikes (Incitement) (28 Apr 1944)

Mr Charles White: ...say, at first, that I do not think anybody on this side of the House laments any less than I do that industrial disputes should have been taking place in England, Scotland or Wales during the past 12 months or, for that matter, at any time during the war. In extenuation one must say that, in regard to many of the difficulties which the workers have had to face, they have had to take...
