Orders of the Day — MINES (WORKING FACILITIES AND SUPPORT) BILL [Lords]. ( 7 May 1923)

Mr George Lane-Fox: ...the Railway Clauses Consolidation Act of 1845, but only in respect of railways.

I shall be compelled to vote against the Bill from that point of view, although I agree that the public health point of view...

Orders of the Day — Capitalist System. (16 Jul 1923)

...that, what hope is there of making simple facts plain to the ordinary man? I could carry this absurdity further and say, that the streets are to be owned by the men who sweep them or make them; our sewage system, by the men who construct the sewers; the gasworks by the men employed there; and even the proprietorship of the "Observer" itself would change under conditions where the...

Orders of the Day — Private Business.: THAMES COXSERVANCY BILL (By Order) (12 Mar 1924)

Mr Herbert Morrison: ...not exist, that cost would fall upon the counties and county boroughs of the riverside.

Colonel William Nicholson: penetrate; that work is only carried on in very dirty and depressing conditions; that the vaults, which are on the floor below the basement, were recently flooded with what was thought to be sewage, with the result that large quantities of chlorine had to be used, the smell making the conditions of the staff almost unbearable; and if he will consider whether the time has arrived to put...

Civil Services Supplementary Estimate, 1924-25.: GLASGOW BOUNDARIES BILL. (By Order.) (18 Mar 1925)

Mr Frederick Macquisten: ...due to the prosperity of the city, and the extension of the activities of the corporation. If that were so one would have thought the corporation would have tried to take in Clydebank. Their sewage works are there. Why do they not take in Clydebank, and give it a hand in its present troubles? Then they say they require increased housing accommodation. They have, however, plenty of room for...

Mr Herbert Williams: the history of mankind, and it is the result of the public health work of our local authorities under the powers which have been conferred upon them by this House—their powers with regard to sewage disposal and dealing with nuisances, their powers either to supply water or to control those who supply water, and to ensure its adequate purity, the various powers of health inspection,...
