Orders of the Day — Housing (Scotland) [Expenses]. (10 Apr 1930)

Mr George Hardie: ...take the real financial basis of rent, it is surely the cost of the erection of the house. The moment the contractor is paid and the scheme finished, then the local authority takes over all road, sewage, cleansing, etc., and they go on a definite rate. The difficulty has to be faced if we are going to get down to a real basis of rent, and, by following the course I have indicated, we come...

Class 1.: Privy Seal Office. (19 May 1930)

Mr Harold Balfour: ...high level, having regard to the economic facts. We are forcing our productive industries to pay more for coal than they would pay in a completely Free Trade market. Our power, water, gas, sewage disposal, housing, are all protected industries at the present time. They are sheltered. They have strong trade union agreements, and, under that form of Protection, their commodities cannot be...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: India Office. (26 May 1930)

Mr Samuel Hoare: ...Indian Army—there, again, I am told it was a case of agitators playing upon their Brahmin susceptibilities and telling them that if they went into the streets of Peshawar they would be defiled by sewage being thrown at them, and that the British Raj would not allow them to retaliate. This goes to show that, serious as may be many of the incidents that are taking place, we are faced not...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Grants in Respect of Employment Schemes. (18 Jun 1930)

Miss Margaret Bondfield: ...of the difficulties with which we are constantly faced in connection with the Unemployment Grants Committee. I have no knowledge whatever of one of the schemes to which he alluded. As regards the sewage scheme to which he referred, he criticised the delays which have occurred, and that is the other side of the picture. Originally, the sewage scheme amounted to £108,000, and further...

Orders of the Day — LAND DRAINAGE (No. 2) BILL [Lords.] (24 Jun 1930)

Sir George Courthope: ...rain will rush off in a few minutes into channels which may have been adequate for the slow percolation of the moorland but were never intended by nature to carry the increasing flow from a modern sewage system or a modern drainage system. Take the big inland towns, the great cities of the Midlands, everyone of them importing enormous water supplies, not obtained from the catchment areas...

Oral Answers to Questions — Public Health.: Northampton Water and Sewerage Schemes. (10 Jul 1930)

Mr Arthur Greenwood: ...the purpose of discussing certain proposals outlined by the council's waterworks engineer for supplying Northampton and other towns in the Midlands with water from Wales. The scheme of sewerage and sewage disposal which formed the subject of Mr. Marshall's inquiry on the 27th ultimo requires a good deal of further consideration, but no time will be lost in dealing with it.

Orders of the Day — Public Works Facilities Bill. (11 Jul 1930)

Mr Robert Bourne: ...counsel, parliamentary agents, witnesses, and so on, is when two big local authorities are "scrapping" over a boundary scheme or something of that sort, or one is objecting to the other putting its sewage works in its area. This Bill will not do anything to stop either the cost or the length of such proceedings. That seems to me to be the first indictment against this Measure. A second is...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Department of Health for Scotland. (14 Jul 1930)

Mr John Train: education, perhaps there is some thing in the argument in favour of free houses; but I wish to draw attention to the fact that something in connection with house building we have neglected is sewage purification and the provision of a good water supply. I see from page 38 of the report that the work of the Local Government (Scotland) Act, 1929, is beginning to make itself felt, in...

Orders of the Day — Housing (Scotland) Bill.: Clause 35. — (Complaint to Department by tenant or occupier with regard to water supply, etc.) (15 Jul 1930)

Mr Walter Elliot: ...attention on it to the exclusion of the remedying of other sanitary defects, or lead some local authority to think that Parliament attached some special importance to the provision of a water-borne sewage system. There are places in rural districts where a water-borne sewage system may be either undesirable or unnecessary. In any case, these words will leave the law as wide as possible,...

Order of the Day.: Debate on the Address. ( 4 Nov 1930)

Mr Herbert Morrison: ...schemes considered by the two committes under the Development Act, with which the Minister of Transport is not directly concerned. The approvals under these, in respect of gas 'and water schemes, sewage and various town halls, baths, wash-houses and land drainage, represent some £20,000,000 of the sum which remains to make up the £135,000,000. It should be remembered that, in the main,...

Both are extremely damp and were flooded to the extent of eight inches over the window in June, 1927, by sewage water.
