Orders of the Day — India and Burma (Temporary and Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill (8 Oct 1942)

Lieut-Colonel Leo Amery: ...organisation of plans for dislocating communications and making rebellion effective. The Government of India, unless it wished to shirk the first duty of any Government, had no option but to take action. Its prompt and firm action may well have saved India and indeed the whole Allied cause from grave disaster. I need not repeat the account that I gave in the last Debate of the actual...

Orders of the Day — Health, Housing and Education (Scotland). (8 Jul 1942)

Mr Alexander Sloan: ...of the speech of the Secretary of State to hear what he had to say about education, and he wound up without mentioning it at all. The picture that he drew was a depressing one with regard to our health services, but I think that the fact that he made no reference whatever to post-war education will cause great anxiety throughout Scotland. I do not know whether he wanted to discuss it or...

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Health. (30 Jun 1942)

Mr Clement Davies: One ought to pay a tribute to the local authorities and their advisers, and to the medical men and the nurses, for the way in which they have carried out their work at a time when more services are being required of them and more responsibilities are being thrust upon their shoulders. In the main, however, one has to pay a tribute also to the fact that there has been a wonderful distribution...

Orders of the Day — Woman-Power. (5 Mar 1942)

Mrs Jennie Adamson: ...they are not insuperable. In my judgment, delays are due, first, to the unwillingness of some local authorities to take the necessary steps and, second, to the long time taken by the Ministry of Health to approve schemes submitted to them by progressive local authorities. These authorities complain that their schemes have been held up for months, while the Ministry haggle about the cost. I...

Class Viii.: Ministry of Pensions. (31 Jul 1941)

Mr Walter Womersley: ...were unfortunately killed in that war, or who have died since, as a result of war disabilities. I will quote an example to show what I am trying to do. There is a class of widows known among ex-Service men and among those interested in pension cases as "17A widows." That is the description of a widow who had a modified pension because her husband's death was not wholly due to his...

Orders of the Day — Ways and Means. (9 Apr 1941)

Captain Sir George Elliston: ...Water Board in regard to the steps that are being taken to avoid increases in the cost of living. The Chancellor has promised certain measures to restrict rises in the price of such essential services as coal, gas and electricity, and I hope he will see his way to include water, which is so indispensable to the health and comfort of the people, in that category. In London the Metropolitan...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: New Clause. — (Exemption for hospitals.) (8 Aug 1940)

Sir Samuel Storey: ...from whom revenue can be obtained: those who can afford to pay the whole cost of their treatment, those whose treatment is paid for out of the rates, and those whose treatment is paid for out of national funds—and that is a category which may become a huge one if air bombardment reaches the proportions for which we are prepared. About those who can afford to pay the whole cost of the...

Orders of the Day — Distribution of the Industrial Population. (17 Apr 1940)

Mr Lewis Silkin: ...with neither the Majority report nor the Minority report, and he went so far as to say that he saw no way of getting over the difficulty. That is not a very helpful attitude for the Minister of Health to take up. On the other hand, he also said that he was getting over the difficulties during the war, partly by dispersal and partly by exercising control over new industries. I will not...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Army Estimates, 1940. (12 Mar 1940)

Hon. Oliver Stanley: ...is a particularly easy one as so many of the subjects which the House used to discuss upon these occasions in peace time, and which arouse the deepest interest, it is now clearly impossible, for national reasons, to discuss. It would be wholly improper and undesirable for me to attempt to forecast in war time, as my predecessors did in peace time, what tasks the British Army might be...

Old Age and Widows' Pensions [Money]. (26 Feb 1940)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: ..., and the only reason why the cases of applicants, in view of their straitened circumstances, are not mentioned as they used to be mentioned, is that it is considered better that that humiliating fact should not be publicly referred to in any official document, but there is the strictest means test in respect of all the Civil List pensions. If £50, or even £100, is given to a person it...

Orders of the Day — King's Speech.: Debate on the Address. (5 Dec 1939)

Mr Walter Elliot: ...State will be handed back unimpaired to the people as soon as the emergency is over. It is true that people are inclined to complain now and again of the large sums which are spent on our social services. The money is well invested. It has provided an excellent return. At the end of the last war, in 1919, the general death rate was 13.8 per 1,000 as compared with 11.6 per 1,000 to-day. The...

Orders of the Day — EDUCATION (EMERGENCY) BILL [Lords]. (9 Oct 1939)

Mr Kenneth Lindsay: ...to 15. That Measure came into operation on 1st September. The purpose of this small Bill is to suspend that provision. I little thought that it would fall to my lot to ask this House to suspend an Act which some of us have spent countless hours in helping to bring into force, and which had, with the good will of all parties, become known as the Education Act, 1936. We must, however, face...

Orders of the Day — SENIOR PUBLIC ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS (LIVERPOOL) (Re-Committed) BILL.: Clause 1. — (Provision of senior non-provided schools.) (26 Jul 1939)

Mr William Cove: I am sure that we all desire the quick passage of the Bill, and I shall, therefore, not detain the Committee for more than a few minutes; but I would like to comment on the fact that the supporters of the Government in Liverpool were undoubtedly the cause of the delay that has occurred in that city, and indeed, they made political capital out of the religious question there. They succeeded,...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Civil Estimates, 1939. (21 Jul 1939)

Flight Lieut Wavell Wakefield: ..., because he proceeded somewhat to chastise me, and said that it was no use giving greater doses of poison. I would remind him and the Committee that certain drugs, when taken in small quantities, act as very excellent tonics; it is only when they are taken in too great quanties that they become harmful and poisonous. So I say now that, so far as work is concerned, I think we all must...

Orders of the Day — Civil Estimates, 1939.: Department of Health for Scotland. (4 Jul 1939)

Mr Thomas Johnston: In the last analysis, the great test of the success or failure of the efforts of our Health Department in Scotland must be found in the physical condition of our people. Do they eat more? Do they eat more food of better quality? Do they live longer. Do they live healthier? These factors we can measure year by year and decade by decade. Judging by these tests and standards, I agree with the...

Compulsory Military Training. (27 Apr 1939)

Mr George Hicks: It is with a deep sense of disappointment and profound misgiving that I rise to take part in the Debate. The right hon. Gentleman the Member for Sparkbrook (Mr. Amery) has asked us to look at the facts. I do not know whether he has paid attention to the examination of the facts that the Labour Party have from time to time laid before the House and asked the Government to adopt, but the appeal...

Nutrition. (23 Mar 1939)

Mr Walter Elliot: ...connected as one might think. It has covered the question of nutrition as it more particularly affects the child, and the speeches have also ranged over the general problems of nutrition and health affecting the community as a whole. It would be impossible for me to go at length into either of these problems—the conditions of time do not allow it. Also, as the Parliamentary Secretary to...

Anti-Tuberculosis Service, Wales and Monmouthshire. (22 Mar 1939)

Mr James Griffiths: ...Wales, but hon. Members from every part of the Kingdom, would desire that my first words this afternoon, in opening the Debate on the report of the Committee of Inquiry into the Anti-Tuberculosis Service in Wales and Monmouthshire, should be to express our gratitude to the hon. and learned Member for Montgomery (Mr. C. Davies) and his colleague, Dr. Courts, for the work they have done in...

Social Insurance Services. (22 Feb 1939)

Mr George Hall: I beg to move, That, in view of the growing importance of the social insurance services to the well-being of the nation, this House is of opinion that some co-ordination is necessary in order to remove anomalies and prevent overlapping, that the services should be extended to provide a greater measure of security in times of sickness, unemployment, widowhood, and old age, and that,...

Workmen's Compensation. (8 Feb 1939)

Mr Edward Dunn: ...whatever to the broken, bruised and injured work- man, in order to alleviate his lot and to make some contribution to the happiness of the widow and the orphaned child, we shall be doing a great service. The conscience of the nation has demanded, for half a century at any rate, that when people are injured while following their normal occupation, their employers, whoever they may be,...
