Orders of the Day — Rating and Valuation Bill. (23 Nov 1925)

Mr George Barker: ...the Minister, having charge of the Health Department, should bring in a Rating Bill at this time of the Session to rate sewers. Every local authority which wishes to avoid its duty and allows the sewage to pollute its rivers and streams, would escape a very big financial obligation under this Bill. This Bill, as a matter of fact, is n premium on bad sanitation. Personally, I regret that it...

Orders of the Day — Unemployment. (26 Nov 1925)

...local committees are refusing to count work of that character as qualifying for benefit. That is, manifestly, unfair, because this is work of a useful character. In many cases it is street work, sewage work, etc., carried on by a corporation, and work on which, if the corporation were not getting a grant in respect of it, these men would probably be engaged in the course of their ordinary...

Orders of the Day — Necessitous Areas. (16 Dec 1925)

...I am speaking. Let me lake one illustration of the difficulty in which they find themselves. At the beginning of the War all the local authoritics in my area were busily occupied in laying down a sewage scheme for their areas. That was to cost rather less than £-250,000. How that the War has passed that same scheme has been completed, but at a cost, not of £250,000. but of something very...

Necessitous Areas. ( 2 Mar 1926)

...generous assistance to local authorities who are prepared to carry on the work. The relief work to which we allude is not work of a non-useful character, but includes road-making, harbours, docks, sewage schemes, afforestation and reclamation of foreshore—all things which tend to produce valuable assets in years to come. In conclusion, I hope the Parliamentary Secretary will say...

Fishing Industry. (10 Mar 1926)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: ...of the trawlers. In regard to shellfish researches, we have begun chiefly on mussels. We have found the satisfactory way of cleansing mussels and making them absolutely safe from the danger of sewage. Oysters have proved more delicate, and seem much more susceptible to the effects of climate, but we are experimenting with them also. There are a good many very interesting and possibly...

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture.: Foot-and-Mouth Disease. ( 5 Jul 1926)

With regard to the last part of the question, the outbreaks at Carluke are all in close proximity to the original case on the sewage farm which was traced to imported carcases of pigs. The original case at Crewe may have been due to imported packing material which had been allowed to come into contact with pigs, in contravention of the Foot-and-Mouth Disease (Packing Materials) Order, 1925,...

Mr George Balfour: ...point as to how this would affect the country as a whole, not merely as a matter of electricity supply, but as a principle embodied in a public Statute, capable of being applied to gas, water, sewage or anything else which affects the lives of the people of this country. I say, frankly, that I am not in matter concerned so much as to how this will affect the electricity industry one way or...

Necessitous Areas. ( 1 Mar 1927)

Mr Joseph Compton: a benefit and a boon to the particular districts in which the work is carried out. No one can say that the spending of money on roads is a waste of national funds. Then there is the question of sewage. The north western area have brought forward schemes for putting down new sewage plant, refuse destroying plant, all of which will tend to the benefit of the health of the community. But...

DISEASES OF ANIMALS BILL [Lords]. (15 Mar 1927)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: ...the embargo. The embargo was imposed because of an outbreak at Carluke, where certain infected carcases from Europe were found in a bacon factory. The effluents from that bacon factory infected the sewage farm, and the animals on the sewage farm contracted the disease. There was strong evidence that the infection was carried by the effluent from the factory, and, acting on that, we imposed...

Rural Industry. (30 Mar 1927)

Mr William Wright: such places as Australia and New Zealand and to Manchester was the semi-starvation wages which were paid in the agricultural industry. It is estimated that we are wasting £40,000,000 worth of sewage matter which might be used for fertilising purposes, and which would help to restore certain aspects of agriculture. The question of agriculture in itself is too large a subject to be dealt...

Unemployment Grants Committee. (31 Mar 1927)

Mr Walter Womersley: schemes which have not produced a large amount of work. There have been schemes for work which would not bring in revenue. Consequently much of this money so spent, on work such as road work, sewage work, laying out of parks and recreation grounds did not mean employing a large number of men and did not make any appreciable difference to those on the unemployment pay roll. A scheme to...

Unemployment. (14 Apr 1927)

Mr Walter Womersley: ...earning character, because anything of a revenue earning character was not regarded as a suitable scheme. What could local authorities do? All they could do was to put forward schemes such as new sewage works, new roads, the laying-out of parks and recreation grounds. The system of grant was that 60 per cent. of the interest and sinking fund on the loan was granted by the Committee out of...
