Education (Scotland — Superannuation) Bill. (1 Apr 1919)

Mr Robert Munro: ...classes of teachers and which has been in operation since 1911. That scheme is a contributory scheme, the contributions being provided by school boards and managers, by teachers, and also from the Scottish Education Fund. That scheme, so far as I know, has worked to the satisfaction of all concerned with it. What then, it may be asked, is the reason for this Bill, which proposes to change...

Orders of the Day — Temperance (Wales) Bill. (15 Feb 1924)

Sir Rhys Morris: ...which shall be taken is every licensing district or petty sessional division, and the local authorities shall be the county and borough councils. The options are the same as those contained in the Scottish Act of 1913. They are no change, a limitation resolution and a no-licence resolution. No resolution shall be deemed to be carried unless the majority of the voters recording their votes...

Orders of the Day — Position of Fishing Industry. (11 Mar 1924)

Sir James Millar: ...be done to assist in putting the harbours into proper repair to enable the fishing fleets to operate successfully. I would draw attention to the admirable passage contained in the Report of the Scottish Fishery Board on this subject, and I am glad indeed to be able to recall the fact that we in Scotland are fortunate in having one of the most sympathetic administrations in regard to...

Orders of the Day — LONDON, MIDLAND, AND SCOTTISH RAILWAY (SUPERANNUATION FUND) BILL. (By Order.) (26 May 1924)

Sir Patrick Hannon: ...they not? It is their Bill. The Railway Clerks' Association is a body which is intimately concerned in the operation of the Bill. There are nearly 40,000 clerks employed on the London, Midland and Scottish system, and they are perfectly entitled to use every honourable means at their disposal to convince hon. Members of this House of the righteousness of their desires. We in this House are...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Public Education, Scotland. (3 Jul 1924)

Mr Robert Nichol: ..., in passing, I should like to say that, if the Noble Lady the Member for Kinross (Duchess of Atholl) instead of devoting her speech to the question of the sharing out of the Education (Scotland) Fund and to demanding a bigger share for Perthshire at the expense of other parts, had made a proposal that another million should be spent on education in Scotland I should have been very pleased...

Orders of the Day — Church of Scotland (Property and Endowments) Bill: Clause 19. — (Provisions as to certain payments out of the Consolidated Fund.) (12 May 1925)

Mr James Maxton: ...is a most important Clause, because it decides what the general public of Great Britain have to pay for the maintenance of the Established Church of Scotland, which is attending to the spiritual welfare of only a negligible majority of the people of Scotland. The defence for continuing these payments which has been made previously in this House and in the Standing Committee, is that the...

Orders of the Day — Public Health Bill.: Fifth Schedule. (19 Jun 1925)

Mr Frank Rye: ...the State. I will give one instance which will be sufficient to refute his argument. Let me remind him that the State contributes 50 per cent. of the moneys expended under the Maternity and Child Welfare Act of 1918. As Poplar has adopted that Act, it must be clear to the House that the State does contribute to the finances of Poplar. Quite apart from any contributions out of State funds,...

Orders of the Day — Economy (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill. (16 Mar 1926)

Mr Rhys Davies: ...-ninths of the cost of benefits and administration, and, consequently, are entitled to do so by virtue of the fact that they contributed so much. Now they are cutting down their contribution to the funds of the societies, and I cannot see that their title will be nearly as strong as it was. In fact, we shall have something to say on that subject later on when the Bill is considered in...

Orders of the Day — Economy (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill.: Clause 2. — (Amendment of s. 83 of principal Act.) (14 Apr 1926)

Mr John Wheatley: ...people are being unfairly and unjustly treated by the Bill, the hard fact remains that they are being compelled by this Measure to hear the whole of the additional burden, and to bear it out of a fund to which the State will contribute less than it contributed when the charges on that fund were lower than it is proposed to make them now. The right hon. Gentleman made no attempt at all, or...

Orders of the Day — Prisons (Scotland) Bill. (6 Dec 1926)

Mr James Maxton: ...how it is possible for the local policeman, in addition to the ordinary duties he has to perform in any district for which he is responsible, at the same time to be responsible for the health and welfare of any prisoners that may be confined in the police cells? How is a prisoner going to be fed; to be regularly exercised; how is he going to be allotted proper tasks to occupy his time and...

Civil Services Supplementary Estimates, 1926–27.: Scottish Board of Health. (21 Feb 1927)

Mr Walter Elliot: ...from replying by a lack of knowledge and in other cases by fear of the Rules of the House. It would not be possible for me to go into the question of light treatment and the extension of child welfare centres in Glasgow, on this Supplementary Estimate, and the hon. Member for Springburn (Mr. Hardie) who has a very accurate knowledge of the rules of Order as we have heard by his objections...

Orders of the Day — Government of Scotland Bill. (13 May 1927)

Reverend James Barr: ...vested in the King, who will be represented in Scotland by a Lord High Commissioner. Administrative action will be through the Lord High Commissioner, advised by an Executive Committee of the Scottish Privy Council which is to be set up. Practically all subjects that are dealt with relating to Scotland in this Parliament, by this and the other House, will be dealt with in future by the...

Civil Estimates, 1927.: Scottish Board of Health. (21 Jul 1927)

Sir James Macpherson: ...question of urban housing, though nobody who represent any part of Scotland could fail to be other than alarmed at some of the statements which appeared in the very excellent Report issued by the Scottish Board of Health. I read with feelings of pain that part of it which refers to housing conditions in certain parts of Glasgow. I understand some of my hon. Friends who represent that city...

Orders of the Day — Local Government (Scotland) Bill. (3 Dec 1928)

Dr Thomas Shiels: ...of the changes which they are making in local government. Strangely enough, Scotland has been singled out for much more severe handling in this connection than has England. Compared with the Scottish Bill, the English Measure is a kindly gesture. The hon. Member for the Scottish Universities (Mr. Buchan) criticised us for objecting to a differentiation of treatment. What we are objecting...

Orders of the Day — Local Government (Scotland) Bill. (4 Dec 1928)

Mr James Stewart: ...one of their ships. If that is true, how is it going to affect unemployment? It may have this effect, that it may enable the company to pay a slightly increased dividend or build up their reserve fund, but it will not enable them to take on extra labour. The cost of a 20,000-ton passenger ship is £1,000,000. How much is a relief of £13,000 going to reduce costs and create an increased...

Civil Estimates, Supplementary Estimate, 1928.: Class IX. (20 Dec 1928)

Mr John Gilmour: I intervene at this stage to implement the undertaking given by the Prime Minister that I should say a word upon the Scottish position. Anyone who has listened to the speech of the hon. and gallant Gentleman who has just spoken will welcome the spirit in which the offer was made. The House will realise that the Lord Mayor's Fund does not extend to Scotland. Therefore the Government, as they...

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

Mr John Wheatley: ...outset I would like to draw the attention of the Committee to this—that it is a most remarkable thing that the right hon. Gentleman the Member for Hillhead and the hon. Member who represents the Scottish Universities (Mr. Buchan) are both sons of the manse. Education in Scotland has been for centuries, and is to-day, under Protestant control, and I think the public should mark the fact...

Civil Estimates, 1929.: Department of Health for Scotland. (7 May 1929)

Dr Thomas Shiels: ...side is another matter, because his speech represented a rather rosier picture of Scotland than many of us believe to be accurate. We are considering, as well as the Estimates, the Report of the Scottish Board of Health for the last year, and for the last time, and it is seemly to give a passing word of recognition of good work done and of regret that we have to say goodbye. It is now...

Orders of the Day — Prorogation.: His Majesty's Most Gracious Speech. (10 May 1929)

...of the financial relations between the State and the local authorities will promote efficiency and economy in local administration, will enable better provision to be made for the health and welfare of the people, and will in particular direct special relief to those areas whose needs are most pressing. Steady progress continues to be made in the provision of houses, and the reductions in...

School-Leaving Age (Scotland). (17 Apr 1930)

...hon. Gentleman to look at an answer which was given to a question which I put last November, and he will see some very interesting figures. I would remind the right hon. Gentleman that, under the Scottish Education Act of 1918, it is provided that exemptions will be allowed from the age of 13 when the school age is raised to 15. The right hon. Gentleman has given an estimate of £1,500,000...
