Oral Answers to Questions — Cunard Steamship Company (Financial Facilities). (13 Dec 1933)

Mr Neville Chamberlain: ...glad to say that these difficult and complicated negotiations, conducted with great good will on all sides, have reached a stage at which the Government feel justified in assuming that an effective merger of the North Atlantic fleets of the Cunard and White Star lines will become an accomplished fact at an early date. It is the intention of the Government in that event shortly to lay...

Orders of the Day — Road and Rail Traffic Bill. (3 May 1933)

Mr George Hall: ...7,000,000; that is motor services for the conveyance of pas- sengers, and they are still developing that branch of the service. Only last week the "Road Transport Journal" referred to an important merger of road passenger transport which took place on 1st May, Monday of this week, and they said: The Crosville Motor Services, Limited, of Chester, will take over the services hitherto...

Orders of the Day — Supply. (16 Mar 1933)

...not be without general interest in themselves. The first economy we have made, I am sure many hon. Members will be pleased to hear, is in the Admiralty itself—the staff. It is what we call the "merger." During last year we carried out a reorganisation of the staff which combines efficiency with a considerable saving in salaries, and I am sure the House will agree with me that this is a...

Orders of the Day — London Passenger Transport Bill. (14 Feb 1933)

Sir Henry Jackson: ...omnibus proprietors having regard to their number and the small interests which they severally represent. It is a fact that at the present time 93 per cent. of the capital involved in this great merger is coming in perfectly voluntarily. There has been no compulsion of any kind used, and the fact that that large figure has come in quite voluntarily is to my mind entirely in accordance with...

Orders of the Day — London Passenger Transport Bill.: Fourteenth Schedule. — (Provisions as to determination of compensation payable to officers and servants.) (13 Feb 1933)

Sir Stafford Cripps: ...Schedule, where people have turned over from one occupation to the other but all the time have been in the service of one or other of those com- panies. Some of the cases have been brought about by merger and otherwise. We wish to safeguard the position of the men. The House will remember that in the Electricity (Supply) Act, 1926, which I think was an Act which went through during the...

Orders of the Day — London Passenger Transport (Re-Committed) Bill.: Clause 1. — (Establishment of London Passenger Transport Board.) (29 Nov 1932)

Sir Henry Jackson: ...undertakings alike? They are all suffering a reduction of receipts. What difference can it make to the financial basis whether they are treated as units or are joined, as is proposed, in a common merger? As is well known, there are practically only two groups outside the financial scope of this Bill—Tilling's group of omnibuses and the Independent group of omnibuses. In Clause 14 (8), an...

Orders of the Day — London Passenger Transport Bill. (27 Oct 1932)

Sir Henry Jackson: ...their receipts are down 5.9 per cent. The common fund of the Underground is down by 3.7 and the London and Surburban Traction group show a deficit of 2.8. If all great components of the new great merger are in fact suffering alike, it will not really affect the financial stability of the Board. Nor will these participants be any the worse for being related together in one combined...

Conduct of National Affairs. (25 Oct 1932)

Mr George Hicks: ...aware, or ought at least to be fully aware, that every economy we make creates unemployment. The continued displacement of labour by machinery, the concentration of capital, the amalgamations, the mergers—all these things which are taking place in our midst to-day are creating unemployment. I would be very happy, and I am sure that my party would, if, at a later period, any hon. Member...

Oral Answers to Questions — Government Departments.: Admiralty. (6 Jul 1932)

...has since been reduced by 16. I regret that I am unable to give the figures or undertaking asked for in the remainder of the question, but I would point out that the economies resulting from the merger of the secretary's and accountant-general's departments are to be seen in the reduction of the cost of the staff rather than in the number of persons employed, because the concentration and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Government Departments.: Admiralty. (1 Jun 1932)

Sir Charles Cayzer: ...of the clerical staff to 829, as at August, 1914; and, if not, will he allow three Members of the House, nominated by the Public Accounts and Estimates Committees, to test the staffing while the merger of the Secretary's and the Accountant-General's Departments is in progress, and so bring about an early reduction to not more than 829?

Oral Answers to Questions — Government Departments.: Admiralty (Clerical Staff). (25 May 1932)

...character suggested are carried out almost continuously at the Admiralty, and there has been during the last 10 years a steady reduction of staff, which is still going on. It is expected that the merger of the Secretary's and the Accountant-General's Department, which has recently been announced and which is now in progress, will result in a considerable simplification of work and...

Oral Answers to Questions — India.: Royal Navy (Paymaster Director General). (12 May 1932)

The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the ADMIRALTY (Lord Stanley): The merger that is being made between the Secretary's department and the Account-ant-General's department does not in itself affect the duties of the Paymaster Director General and his department. The functions of the latter department are, however, also at present under consideration, but I am not as yet able to say what changes,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Ceylon.: Electricity Supplies (Scotland). (11 May 1932)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Thomas Moore: ...Minister of Transport the number and names of the electricity boards in Scotland which have, since the passing of the Electricity Act, been merged in larger undertakings; and how many electricity mergers it is proposed to have in Scotland to cover the whole country?

Orders of the Day — Supply. (2 May 1932)

Mr Herbert Samuel: ...of mobile patrols, equipped with motor vehicles of their own which are able to exercise some check upon this class of crime. We are taking steps, and I hope the House will permit it, to promote the merger of the smaller police forces. There are 180 Police Forces in this country, too many for efficiency. That is a matter that requires legislation, and it would not be in order for me to...

Orders of the Day — Civil Estimates, 1932.: Home Office. (15 Apr 1932)

Mr Herbert Samuel: .... There are too many police forces in this country to secure really efficient administration, but that is a matter which will come before the Select Committee of this House who are considering the merger of police forces. With regard to sentences imposed upon criminals by the courts, my predecessor Mr. Clynes appointed an expert committee to deal with the question of the persistent...

Mr Roland Robinson: ...of Neon gas flood lighting devices, traffic signals, railway crossing automatic signals, flashers and advertising signs, all patented or patentable in Great Britain. Subsidiary company, merger, licence, royalty or other arrangements would be considered. E. Complete patented line of inter-communicating telephones for apartment houses, hospital or industrial service … F. Automobile...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Export Credits. (22 Jul 1931)

Colonel Ralph Glyn: ...which would lead to the work being spread throughout the country in the various firms within the particular industry. It would be an admirable thing for British trade and credit if we had large mergers. It would mean that the most up-to-date firms would remain, and the less efficient would go to the wall. This scheme was introduced 10 years ago, and when the first five years had gone by we...

Orders of the Day — Judicial Proceedings (Newspaper Reports). (14 May 1931)

Mr James Marley: ...into account. There was a similar case in 1928 of a much more serious nature, in some respects, when it was alleged that certain people had made money out of previous information with regard to the merger of the Imperial Marconi Company and the Imperial Telegraph Company. It was alleged that the "Daily Mail" had given prior information to persons, who made huge fortunes as a result. When...

Orders of the Day — Clause 1. — (Continuance of Acts in Schedule.) (4 Dec 1930)

Mr Thomas Shaw: ...grounds, and would never, never, never enter into an arrangement with them. The Committee ought to know that in 1924 there was a proposal made to bring about what was to all intents and purposes a merger between the dyestuff makers of this country and the Interressen-Gemeinschaft, and that the Government should withdraw their holdings in order that that merger should be made. It was the...

Accidents in Mines. (3 Dec 1930)

Mr John Sutton: ...to be put into operation with a view to decreasing this terrible tragedy that we have in the mines from day to day and from year to year. One wonders whether the amalgamations of collieries, the mergers, and the rationalisation that have been taking place during the last few years have had anything to do with the increase in the number of accidents. One knows that where amalgamations take...
