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...

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 — 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...

Glasgow Corporation Bill (Substituted Bill), (3 Mar 1930)

"to authorise the Corporation of the city of Glasgow to construct railways in connection with their Merklands cattle wharf; to make provision for the treatment of sewage from Dumbartonshire; to confer on the Corporation further powers in connection with their tramway and other undertakings; to extend the boundaries of the city; to authorise the Corporation to borrow money; and for other...

Orders of the Day — Local Authorities (Enabling) Bill. (14 Feb 1930)

Dr Alfred Salter: logic, or even on grounds of practical wisdom. The time was when it was considered to be wholly wrong that a municipality should supply even water, or, indeed, be responsible for the removal of sewage. For 21 years, I believe, year after year, Mr. Silk Buckingham, in the early part of the nineteenth century, brought a Bill into this House to enable such public authorities as then...

Oral Answers to Questions — House of Commons.: Ventilation. (10 Feb 1930)

Mr George Strauss: Is my right hon. Friend aware that people get acclimatised to a bad atmosphere and that the health of people working on sewage farms is remarkably high throughout the country?

Private Business.: North Cheshire Sewerage Board Bill (Certified Bill), (23 Jan 1930)

..., and Sale, and the rural district council of Bueklow, all in the said county, and to authorise the board to construct main trunk sewers and other works and to acquire lands for the disposal of sewage; and for other purposes," presented and read the First time; and ordered, pursuant to the Order of the House of 11th December, to be read a Second time upon Monday next.

Oral Answers to Questions — River Pollution. (21 Jan 1930)

...: 59. asked the Minister of Agriculture whether his attention has been called to the Report of the Tyne Experimental Committee, particularly the reference to the pollution of the River Tyne from sewage; and whether, having regard to the damage done to fisheries upon which many people depend for their livelihood, he is taking any action in the matter?

Local Government Legislation. (13 Nov 1929)

Mr Robert Bourne: ...admirable from the point of view of the local authority, it might be extraordinarily detrimental from the point of view of other people affected by it. A local authority might desire to establish a sewage farm in a certain place. That would be an excellent project from the point of view of the local authority but it might be very detrimental to all the people living in the vicinity where...

Oral Answers to Questions — Public Health.: River Lea (Pollution). (25 Jul 1929)

Mr Arthur Greenwood: Several large schemes of sewerage and sewage disposal have been carried out at heavy cost in recent years by local authorities with a view to improving the condition of the river. I am arranging for a visit of inspection in the near future.

Development (Loan Guarantees and Grants) Bill.: Clause 4. — (Power to make grants to local authorities in connection with development works.) (22 Jul 1929)

Mr Leifchild Jones: I was informed by the clerk of the local authority that this scheme had been sent in some time ago, and part of it—the sewage disposal part—had been sanctioned, but that was useless unless at the same time they get sanction for the water scheme. It might have done more harm than good. They were held up, because they could not get a decision from the committee. Representations were made to...

Orders of the Day — Colonial Development Bill.: Clause 1. — (Power to make advances for the purposes of Colonial development.) (18 Jul 1929)

...Indian Islands. The only possible reference in the Bill which can be included under health is the question of the drainage of land and swamps for the removal of malarial conditions. The disposal of sewage in many of these islands is very primitive at present. I want to make it possible for sewage schemes to be brought within the scope of the Measure, as the question of sewage- affects...

Private Business.: GALLOWAY WATER POWER BILL [Lords]. (By Order). (25 Apr 1929)

...Doon, and disease is bound to be created if there is not sufficient water in that river; and although the promoters have gone to the local authority in Ayr and said, "We will assist you to erect sewage installations at the mouth of the river so as to keep things right," it is estimated by experts that the rateable value of the land alongside the river Doon will be reduced by 50 per cent....

Orders of the Day — Scottish Affairs. (20 Mar 1929)

Mr James Stewart: ...and the pollution of rivers. At the beginning it says: Continuous pressure has been brought to bear upon local authorities to have existing conditions improved. Further on it says: The trouble from sewage, broadly speaking, arises from putrefaction, and the problem is to render the effluent non-putrescent. During the last 20 years or so, Glasgow has incurred a capital expenditure of over...

Orders of the Day — Local Government (Scotland) Bill. (11 Mar 1929)

Mr John Gilmour: ...enterprise which they possess. I have indicated that concessions have been made to the burghs. They have been allowed to retain, under this Bill, full powers in regard to their housing, water and sewage. They have had other concessions made to them with regard to the administration of their sanitary affairs and I trust that, whatever doubts and uncertainty they may have felt in the earlier...

Orders of the Day — Local Government (Scotland) Bill.: Clause 2. — (Transfer of other functions to county councils.) (5 Mar 1929)

Mr Walter Elliot: ...many of them sit. The Report also dealt with the local authority for the administration of the health services. The Secretary of State for Scotland in his original draft included water, drainage, sewage, and housing within the functions of the county, but this Committee suggested that these functions would be better left to the smaller local authorities. The health scheme which we have...

Orders of the Day — Local Government Bill. (18 Feb 1929)

Sir Francis Fremantle: ...sanitary authorities. I attach a great deal of importance to the powers given in this Bill to the restoration, overhauling and systematisation of schemes for infectious diseases, water supply and sewage disposal. When we consider these things—those of us who are interested in them—we realise that there are inevitably points on which we are not yet entirely satisfied. I do not wish to...

Orders of the Day — Local Government (Scotland) Bill.: Clause 8. — (Reconstitution of county councils.) (6 Feb 1929)

Mr Walter Elliot: ...appeals of the burghs, we are reserving to the burghs. We have refused to wipe out the burgh. The burgh remains, the burgh council remains, the burgh rate remains, the burgh housing, the burgh sewage, the burgh waterworks—all these important functions remain. These are functions which are reserved to the burghs, at the request of the burghs, which the county council is not entitled to...
