The SECRETARY for SCOTLAND (Mr. William Adamson)
I beg to move, in page 10, line 27, at the end, to insert the wordsand the reference to Section eight of the Housing, Town Planning, Etc., Act, 1919, shall be construed as a reference to Section six of the Housing, Town Planning, Etc. (Scotland) Act, 1919.This Amendment is consequential upon a new Clause accepted by the Minister 1598 in Committee. It simply gives a Scottish equivalent for the Section in the Act of 1919.
§ Amendment agreed to.
§ Mr. SPEAKER
The Amendment standing in the name of the Noble Lady the Member for Perth and Kinross (Duchess of Atholl)—in page 11, line 11, after the word "be" to insert the wordsProvided that in computing the proportion of agricultural land in a rural area the valuation of sporting rents shall be included as part of the value of agricultural land, but railroads, water or electrical works and undertakings, or institutions erected for the public service and conferring no special advantage on the parish concerned, shall not be included in the total valuation of the rural area for the purposes of these provisions"—cannot be taken at this stage. It would involve an additional charge.
§ Mr. WHEATLEY
I beg to move,That the Bill be re-committed to a Committee of the Whole House in respect of the Amendments to Clause 2, page 3, line 8, and Clause 13, page 11, line 7, standing on the Notice Paper in the name of Mr. Wheatley as Amendments to be moved on re-committal.
§ Sir W. JOYNSON-HICKS
I beg to move, in line 2, to leave out the words "the Amendments to."
The result of my Amendment would be that, instead of recommitting the Bill in respect of three specific Amendments, the Bill would be recommitted in respect of Clauses 2 and 13, and that would enable Amendments in the names of some of my hon. Friends and in the name of hon. Members opposite to be debated. Mr. Speaker has ruled that those Amendments are out of. Order at the present stage and that they can be moved only if the Bill is recommitted. It would be unfair to the House, and to those who wish to move the Amendments if we were to accept the Minister's Motion and recommit the Bill only in respect of one minor point, though, as to the desirability of his Amendment on that minor point I agree with him. I think I am entitled to tell the House the points of the Amendments which we wish to have discussed. There are the Amendments relating to agricultural parishes. Various points have been raised and it is desirable to discuss them again. There is the question, for instance, whether the rateable value of a railway passing through an agricultural parish should be included 1599 or not, and whether large institutions, like workhouses and asylums and so forth, are to be added to the rateable value. Then there is the main point, which ought to be raised again, as to whether the whole genesis of the Minister's Clause in regard to agricultural parishes really has effected the purpose he has at heart, namely, the giving of the subsidy to the poorest class in the community, the agricultural labourer. That is the nominal object of the Clause dealing with agricultural parishes. It would be out of order to go into the whole question, but having regard to the fact that we cannot move any of these Amendments unless the Bill is recommitted in respect of the whole of these Clauses, I suggest it is highly desirable that we should so recommit it. We have got on very well with this Debate so far, and we have ample time. A private Bill is set down for 8.15 o'clock. We have an hour and a half before that, and a discussion of these Amendments in the friendly spirit shown this afternoon would not take more than half an hour.
§ Mr. MASTERMAN
We debated the various subjects mentioned by the right hon. Baronet at great length, and spent hours and days in Committee considering them. Evidently every one of these subjects raises the possibilities of further debate if we approach the problem on the lines suggested by the right hon. Baronet. After the previous Debates we obtained a promise from the Minister that he would consider the provision of some general method of meeting this whole question. There is, first, the point as to the population of the agricultural parishes entitled to receive the additional grants, and on an Amendment with regard to that, moved by my hon. Friend the Member for Rugby (Mr. Brown), the Minister has met us in handsome fashion. The second point is not entirely one of railways, waterways and lunatic asylums, but it is covered by the question of the proportion of the net annual agricultural value of the parish in comparison with the total annual value of the parish. That is the proposal which the Minister suggests we should discuss if we recommit the Bill. On that proposal we may have some observations to make and some Amendments to move, but I submit it is a 1600 better, a clearer and a simpler way of approaching the problem of defining an agricultural parish than by attempting to introduce first the question of railways, then the question of waterways, then the question of canals, thee the question of inebriate asylums and all the other subjects which diversified the small hours during the early morning Debates devoted to this Bill. I therefore submit that we should accept the Motion of my right hon. Friend the Minister and make an honest attempt to meet the representations which have been made from all quarters by approaching this subject on the lines of considering what proportion in any parish shall be regarded as agricultural value as distinct from the total value. Thereby we shall avoid needless discussion and at the same time we shall be enabled to attain the object of members of all parties, namely, to enlarge as far as possible the definition of agricultural parishes entitled to receive the greater grant.
Duchess of ATHOLL
I support the Amendment of the right hon. Baronet the Member for Twickenham (Sir W. Joynson-Hicks) and his contention that the proposal of the Minister to limit the recommittal of the Bill to the Amendments which he desires to move, is inadequate if this subject is to be properly considered. We tried to point out to the right hon. Gentleman during the Committee stage various considerations which have to be taken into account in deciding whether a parish is actually an agricultural or rural parish, and we tried to point out to him how very seriously, in the proposals which he has made, this question might be affected by the presence of railways, waterworks, or public institutions, in a parish. The right hon. Gentleman gave us an assurance that he would consider these points very carefully, and what is the result? He entirely ignores all we have said on these various subjects which cause inequalities between different agricultural or rural parishes, and offers us instead something for which we are not asking, namely, a new proposal as to the relation which the agricultural value of a parish should bear to the total value. That proposal does not in the least meet our case.
When I sought to draw the attention, of the Committee to these difficulties, I 1601 was not attempting to ask special favours for agricultural parishes. I was asking for justice as between different agricultural or rural parishes and trying to make the right hon. Gentleman see how very inequitably his proposal would work out in the case of certain parishes which undeniably are typically rural in character. Though this proposal of the right hon. Gentleman to limit the proportion of agricultural valuation to 30 per cent. will bring some other agricultural parishes within the benefit of the higher grant, it does not meet the case of those parishes of which I have special knowledge and whose claims I tried to put before the Committee the other day. It is not favour, but justice that we seek—some clear, intelligible principle which can be universally applied and which will be understood by all parishes. For instance, there is the question of population. The right hon. Gentleman no doubt thinks he is making a great concession to agricultural parishes by raising the limit of population which is necessary in order to qualify for the grant. The parishes with which I am concerned have populations far below the 50 or the 35 standard fixed by the right hon. Gentleman. I regard his standard of 50 persons to 100 acres as a semi-urban standard.
§ Mr. SPEAKER
The Noble Lady must not now enter into the merits of the proposal which she desires to submit later. The only question before the House is whether the reference to the Committee on the recommittal of the Bill should be wider than that proposed by the Minister.
Duchess of ATHOLL
I was trying to point out that this question could not be considered merely on the basis of the agricultural valuation being 33⅓ per cent. or 30 per cent., and that there are many more considerations which must be taken into account. I do not wish to go into details if I may have an opportunity later on of explaining why it is that there are typically rural parishes which will still he omitted under the right hon. Gentleman's proposal. Will it be possible to have an opportunity of discussing that point at a later stage?
§ Mr. SPEAKER
When the House go into Committee, I shall not be in control. 1602 I should imagine it will be possible on the Government Amendments to discuss that question, but, as I say, I am not responsible.
Duchess of ATHOLL
Then I will do my best, Sir, to get the permission of the Chairman to bring these matters before the Committee. I will only add that this is a much more complicated question than the Minister seems to think, judging by the proposal which he has put down, and I earnestly hope we shall be allowed to consider the whole of Clauses 2 and 13.
§ Mr. WHEATLEY
I want the House to come to a decision on this point. I assure hon. Members I have not looked at this matter from a party or political point of view. I have been looking at the immediate point before us from the standpoint of practicability of administration, and if hon. Members depart from the course I have laid down there is no logical point at which we can draw the line. I cannot accept the Amendment moved by the right hon. Baronet the Member for Twickenham, and I appeal to the House to support the proposal which I have made.
I would appeal to the Secretary for Scotland, if the Minister is unwilling to allow us to have any discussion on these Clauses to intervene on behalf of Scotland. I observe, however, the Secretary for Scotland has taken an early opportunity of withdrawing from our discussion, and I think that alone is enough to compel us to give this matter a somewhat wider consideration than that suggested by the Minister. The Minister says, "I have looked into this matter administratively. You cannot do anything better than my proposals and I ask you to accept those proposals as the best possible." But the House of Commons should have a chance of telling the Minister the things which are in its mind as well as of hearing the things which are in the minds of the Minister's advisers, and I make a claim in respect of Scotland at any rate. The Amendment of the noble Lady the Member for Kinross and Western Perth (Duchess of Atholl) was not discussed during the Committee stage because it was not selected.
I can quite understand that the right hon. Gentleman below the Gangway is anxious to have a series of humiliations finished as quickly as possible and is anxious that the Debate should rapidly terminate, but I ask consideration for those who desire to discuss the Bill and who, if necessary, will go to the length of recording their opinions against it, even though those opinions may be in conflict with the opinions of the Government of the day. We did not get a chance of discussing our alternative proposals. When we criticise the Government we are always told that we are not bringing forward any alternative proposal. Now, the Order Paper is loaded with alternative proposals. We do not suggest that they should be discussed at any length. My right hon. Friend the Mover of the Amendment has said that half an hour would be sufficient, but we are anxious to bring those proposals to the notice of the Minister. The Minister says they are impracticable and unworkable, but that is always the opinion of any Minister about any proposal brought forward from any part of the House other than his own. I ask for your support in this matter, Mr. Speaker, as guardian of the rights of the House against the arrogance of the executive. Your successor may rule that any proposal to reduce the 30 per cent. is extending the scope of the Bill, and that consequently all we can do is to suggest that it should be put back to the figure which the Minister originally had in mind. I suggest we should have a chance of discussing the wider aspect of the question, at any rate as regards Scotland, and I appeal to the chivalry of the Under-Secretary to the Scottish Board of Health. Having been appealed to by the only Scottish lady Member, he should not exercise his power in this arrogant and brutal fashion, but should allow the lady the traditional privilege of having the last word.
§ 7.0 P.M.
§ Lord E. PERCY
I just want to say in reply to the right hon. Member for Rusholme (Mr. Masterman) that one of the Amendments we wish to raise has never been discussed—the Amendment relating to houses intended for agricultural labourers.
§ Lord E. PERCY
It was ruled out of order in the form in which it then was. It certainly is not out of order now. The Minister cannot say that that proposal is administratively impracticable. The reason why we are anxious to move that Amendment and have it discussed may be stated in two words, first, that the only justification for the increased subsidy for agricultural parishes is the position of the agricultural labourer, and secondly, that the increased subsidy given under this Bill will not enable us to build houses to let to agricultural labourers in any agricultural parish.
§ Mr. E. BROWN
I should like to say that in my opinion this subject has not received at the hands of the House the discussion it ought to have. The further I go with this matter, the more complicated it is. I have here a list of no fewer than 125 institutions in parishes in the country which will cut those parishes out of the Bill.
The fact is that 50 or 100 acres in the country areas in England will not affect urban areas at all, but bring in the bulk of them. I find that over 40 per cent. left out of the original definition will come in. The Amendment put down by the right hon. Gentleman does really go further than is appreciated by the House as a whole. It is allowed now on the grounds either of population or rateable value or both. I want to say here, with regard to the Amendment of the Minister, that I am rather alarmed at the statement made by the hon. Gentleman opposite, because I have no doubt whatever that, if the matter is to be dealt with in a manner that does not raise more administrative difficulties, but on the basis of simple numbers, we ought to have had a rather larger concession than we have got. It is quite obvious that the further you go with this question the more truly it appears that some of the. Amendments on the Paper are the best way of dealing with the definition of agricultural parishes.
