Public Assistance. (1 Feb 1939)

Mr Stephen Davies: ...Sir Malcolm Stewart tells us that: Local authorities in these Areas should be in a position, without any special Government assistance, to carry out schemes of urgent necessity on grounds of public health, and indeed other schemes, which, though not so urgently necessary, would improve the amenities of their districts and help to attract new industries. At present this is impossible, and...

Pensions. (23 Nov 1938)

..., but we are not pressing that to-day. All we are doing is to say that the present scale of pensions is inadequate and asking the Government to deal with the anomalies which have arisen out of the Acts as they are administered at the present time. My case will not be a sentimental one, although we could be forgiven if we were to stress its sentimental side. My case is an economic one,...

Orders of the Day — Housing (Financial Provisions) (Scotland) Bill. (22 Nov 1938)

Mr William Leonard: ...the Secretary of State pressed my hon. Friend for a little more explanation of what he meant, my hon. Friend said that he looked upon this problem as one that would have to be considered from the national point of view. On being pressed for a comment on the question of labour, my hon. Friend held out the hope that if the problem was looked at from the point of view of national...

Orders of the Day — King's Speech.: Debate on the Address. (14 Nov 1938)

Mr Walter Elliot: ...monologue which all speeches in this House are intended to be. I say without hesitation that a knowledge of the right kind of food, how to choose food, and how to cook food, is a very important factor. None of us would deny that in private conversation, so why should we seek to deny it when we are carrying on a public debate on a subject of such importance? As regards physical education,...

Air-Raid Defence. (3 Nov 1938)

Mr Herbert Morrison: ...their duty, for it is the duty of Members of the House to speak of deficiencies in the administration of the Government. We propose to discharge that duty. Notwithstanding the Prime Minister's contact with politicians who have other ways, we propose to adhere to the principles of the British Constitution and British practice. In this matter of air-raid precautions I have always taken the...

Orders of the Day — Health Administration. (28 Jul 1938)

Mr Walter Elliot: I rise to continue the review which has been inaugurated by the right hon. Gentleman of the work of the Ministry of Health. In the first place, I would like to say that the past year was the last full year during which my predecessor was responsible for our health services. His long services, dating from before the War and his devotion to all matters relating to the public health are well...

Civil Estimates, 1938.: Department of Health, Scotland. (20 Jul 1938)

Mr John Colville: On a previous occasion when the Estimates for the Department of Health for Scotland were introduced, and also in the case of certain other Scottish Departments, a self-denying ordinance was imposed whereby Members limited their speeches to 15 or 20 minutes. The idea seemed to be a good one, as it enabled as many Members as possible to take part in the Debates. These Estimates have been...

Civil Estimates, 1938.: Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries. (13 Jul 1938)

Mr William Morrison: ...it as an indication of that new interest in the subject which is so refreshing to a Minister of Agriculture. When a Vote of this sort is put down, it is customary for the Minister, in view of the fact that he is asking for money, to give an account of the operations of his Department over the past year, and to justify, if he can, his further call on the public purse. But when I look at the...

Civil Estimates, 1938.: Colonial Office. (14 Jun 1938)

Mr James de Rothschild: ...the hon. and gallant Member for Sevenoaks, and gives an account of the measures which have been taken for the co-ordination of Colonial administration and for the higher efficiency of the Colonial services. I was particularly interested in this respect to note the prominence which is given to the despatch sent by the right hon. Gentleman in November, 1935, and circulated to the Colonial...

Ex-Service Men (Pensions). (3 Jun 1938)

Mr John Tinker: I wish to raise the question of the position of ex-Service men. On two days of this week, we were dealing with preparations against the emergency of war, namely, air raid precautions and the Essential Commodities Reserves Bill. When the House was dealing with those matters I thought of the position of the men who did such noble work 20 odd years ago. Have we forgotten what they did for us? In...

Orders of the Day — Unemployment and Economic Conditions. (23 Mar 1938)

Mr George Daggar: ...has deliberately burked with repeated references to some picture that he has not even now completed, whatever the picture might be. However, we are all, I am sure, pleased that for the moment the national situation has eased sufficiently to permit us once again to discuss matters that directly affect the lives of our people in this country. I suppose that to-night, as upon previous...

Orders of the Day — Housing (Financial Provisions) Bill. (15 Feb 1938)

Mr Arthur Greenwood: ...out from the word "That," to the end of the Question, and to add instead thereof: this House, realising the limited extent to which overcrowding can be abated under the operation o£ the Housing Act, 1935, and the need for more progressive measures, regrets that, on the contrary, a Bill has been introduced which, in so far as it becomes operative, will result in higher rents, and which...

Orders of the Day — Land Values (Rating) Bill. (26 Nov 1937)

Mr Andrew MacLaren: ...over which he had no control would prevent him from being here. The main consideration in the minds of those who took part in that Debate was how best to avert the possibilities of the severe impact that may come upon trade, which hitherto we have always called a trade depression, but which has now assumed a very nice and palatable name and is called a trade recession. The hon. Member for...

Malnutrition. (24 Nov 1937)

Mr William Leonard: ...of opinion from time to time as to the importance of this matter. I have heard that it is of importance to industry, of recent years it has been referred to as a problem affecting the Fighting Services and I have even heard that those who continually advertise and advise that we should eat more of this or that food, hope that the problem will be solved by the eating of the product which...

Orders of the Day — Coal Bill. (22 Nov 1937)

Mr Arthur Greenwood: ...to leave out from the word "That," to the end of the Question, and to add instead thereof: this House, recognising the importance of coal mining as a basic industry upon which the prosperity of the nation largely depends, is dissatisfied with the policy of amalgamating mining undertakings regardless of the effect upon the life of the local community, and being of opinion that in the...

Orders of the Day — Annual Holiday Bill. (12 Nov 1937)

Mr Malcolm Macmillan: ...been raised time and time again by this House when it has given a Second Reading by a substantial majority to a Bill on these lines, and time after time those hopes have been cruelly dashed by the action or inaction of the Government. Let us examine the international position in relation to this question. It was brought up at the International Labour Office in October, 1933. It was agreed...

Orders of the Day — Blind Persons Bill. (11 Nov 1937)

The Minister of Health (Sir Kingsley: Wood): I beg to move, "That the Bill be now read a Second time." There are about 78,000 registered blind persons in England, Wales and Scotland, arid of these nearly 57,000 are aged 50 or over, and there are over 8,000 blind persons between the ages of 40 and 50. I do not think that the number of blind persons is increasing in this country. It is true,...

Land Drainage. (3 Nov 1937)

Mr George Muff: ...25th May, when he told, I believe, the conference of the catchment hoards that he might not be able to introduce a Bill in this next Session of Parliament, that he has the chance to remedy a great act of injustice so far as some of the small occupiers who are mulcted in these excessive sums for drainage expenditure are concerned. A few months ago the Minister, with a fanfare of trumpets,...

Orders of the Day — King's Speech.: Debate on the Address. (1 Nov 1937)

Mr Edward Dunn: ...him in two points which he made. The right hon. Gentleman said: At the outset of this Debate, which is to run over two days and is to cover a very wide field, I want to state a certain series of facts to which I invite the attention of hon. and right hon. Gentlemen opposite. I ask them to refute them, if they can, and if they cannot refute them, they are a complete answer to almost every...

Orders of the Day — King's Speech.: Debate on the Address. (27 Oct 1937)

Mr Albert Alexander: ...we think are not adequately treated in the Address before the House. There is no one on this side of the House who does not know that it is to a large extent the Government's handling of international relationships which has weakened the prospects of social amelioration. The condition that we look out upon to-day in the world at large, the lack of confidence in what has been hoped for in...
