Orders of the Day — Trade Disputes and Trade Unions Bill.: Clause 6. — (Provisions as to persons employed by local and other public authorities.) (31 May 1927)

Mr Neville Chamberlain: important to the community. Take the case of a lightning strike on the part of the employeés responsible for the removal of house refuse, for the cleansing of the streets or the treatment of sewage. A sudden stoppage of those services might have the most disastrous results on the health, or even on the lives, of the community. It might be much more serious than depriving them of gas or...

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

Mr Joseph Sullivan: ...Board of Health state they have discovered rivers which are in a bad state. There are two ways in which a river becomes impure. In the first place local authorities may discharge into the river sewage which has not been purified. The remedy for that state of affairs lies in the hands of the Scottish Board of Health, because no public authority ought to be allowed to poison streams in that...

Orders of the Day — Agriculture. (20 Dec 1927)

Mr William Wright: ...nation. Being an island nation and only producing one-fifth of our wheat supplies, we ought to increase that amount.

Private Business.: Liberal Land Policy. (14 Mar 1928)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arthur Heneage: ...the neighbourhood of £700,000,000, which no doubt would be obtained by loan. The other speaker from the Opposition side advocated that the fertility of the land should be increased by the use of sewage, and I suppose we shall have the Labour party at the next election, asking the electors to provide them with £700,000,000; and use more sewage. There are two things which I think the...

Mr George Hardie: ...tight because they are underground, but it is very soon discovered that they are not tight.

Private Business: SOUTH ESSEX WATERWORKS BILL [Lords] (By Order). (22 May 1928)

Mr Francis Broad: ...all quarters of the House and the public Press would have denounced that local authority as a most reactionary body. We must regard the supply of water to day as being just as necessary as a proper sewage provision. The water charges should be fixed on the rateable value of the property, so long as we regard that as the right basis on which to fix local charges. There should be no extra...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill ( 5 Jun 1928)

Mr Edward Harney: ...goods has any less obligation to fulfil the requirements of his neighbourhood than the man who is occupied in making the goods. Both of them share its benefits. Both have their sanitation, their sewage and their health and educational facilities. Why should one be treated on a different footing from the other? You get no real distinction on that footing at all. The true question is this....

Mr John Scurr: ...which pleases many people who serve on boards of guardians. You cannot be a patron when you are considering the question of rates. You cannot be a patron when you are considering the question of sewage disposal, or when anything of that kind is under consideration. But when you sit on a committee and can dole out to people who come to apply for relief a certain number of shillings, one can...

Orders of the Day — Local Government Bill. (28 Nov 1928)

Sir Percy Hurd: .... One of the most difficult points is the question of the special rates. They are afraid that under the Bill as it stands the smaller authorities will be in an impossible position in regard to sewage schemes and other matters of that sort, where the burden will fall more and more upon the smaller authorities. I shall be glad if the Parliamentary Secretary, when he replies, will deal with...

Orders of the Day — Local Government [Money]. (29 Nov 1928)

Mr Henry Cautley: I am very much interested in the provision of water and sewage schemes in our country villages, and I welcome particularly the two Clauses in the Bill which assist the carrying out what is an urgent necessity.

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

Mr John Gilmour: ..., that the attack of the Government upon the position of these smaller burghs is a very severe one; but there are certain services which fall to be dealt with by these smaller burghs, such as sewage and water supply, both of which are often closely into, locked with the life of the communities immediately outside their boundaries, and nobody who knows the circumstances in Scotland can deny...

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

Mr Robert Boothby: ...up with the lies which have been told about this matter. The Secretary of State made one remark in his opening speech which was rather alarming. He said that in many cases in the small burghs the sewage and water supplies were closely interlocked. I am sure that where any case of that kind arises no hon. Member, of any party, would not admit that urgent action by the central Department was...
