Canlyniadau 101–120 o 162 ar gyfer speaker:Mr Donald Kaberry

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Monopolies (14 Meh 1955)

Mr Donald Kaberry: The question of level tendering raises a point entirely different from that on the Order Paper, and the whole of the matter will shortly be the subject of a reference by my right hon. Friend.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Credit Facilities and Hire Purchase (14 Meh 1955)

Mr Donald Kaberry: The amount of credit extended to consumers has been restrained. I regret the figures are not available.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Credit Facilities and Hire Purchase (14 Meh 1955)

Mr Donald Kaberry: It will help the hon. Member if I tell him that discussions are now taking place about collecting statistics with regard to hire purchase. It is hoped to start collection and publication shortly.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Credit Facilities and Hire Purchase (14 Meh 1955)

Mr Donald Kaberry: The question about furniture raises a separate issue, but the statistics which it is hoped to collect and publish will show the position in its true light.

Development Areas ( 2 Mai 1955)

Mr Donald Kaberry: The hon. Lady the Member for Lanarkshire, North (Miss Herbison) has spoken in challenging language and has issued a challenge which I, on behalf of hon. Members on this side of the Committee, am very glad to accept. I wish, first, to thank her for initiating this debate on the Development Areas, because it gives me, on behalf of my right hon. Friend, for whose enforced absence this afternoon...

Development Areas ( 2 Mai 1955)

Mr Donald Kaberry: I hope to deal with specific areas later. I recall that I had the good fortune to hear last week a deputation led by the hon. Member for Pontypool (Mr. West) about Blaenavon. I should like to give some concrete examples of what the Government have done generally, over the whole broad picture of the expansion of industry and the creation and maintenance of a high level of employment generally...

Development Areas ( 2 Mai 1955)

Mr Donald Kaberry: Yes. I said that I was dealing with the picture as a whole. I shall deal with individual areas later. Coming to the question of employment; taking into account the fall in unemployment and the increase in the number of insured workers since 1951, it is estimated that there are now at least 50,000 more people at work in the Development Areas than in 1951. New industrial projects approved...

Development Areas ( 2 Mai 1955)

Mr Donald Kaberry: I shall give the percentage figures for comparison. I was hoping not to weary hon. Members too much with a long list of figures and statistics, but since November, 1951, the area of factory space started has amounted to 4,031,000 square feet and, of this, 2,208,000 square feet was started in the financial year 1954–55. Furthermore, in the last three and a half years the Government have...

Development Areas ( 2 Mai 1955)

Mr Donald Kaberry: I appreciated what the hon. Member was asking, and I shall endeavour to answer it in due course, as I come to specific points.

Development Areas ( 2 Mai 1955)

Mr Donald Kaberry: If I miss anything I am sure that my hon. Friend the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Labour will deal with it far more adequately than I can. I turn now to individual areas, each of which has its own problems. We all know that many of them have passed through the hard school of adversity and, perhaps because of that fact, the wage earners in those districts can contribute much,...

Development Areas ( 2 Mai 1955)

Mr Donald Kaberry: I appreciate that the hon. Lady referred to the whole picture, but she was particularly concerned with North Lanarkshire. I shall deal with one or two points which arise in dealing with the Scottish problem. Government-financed factories in this part of the Development Area already employ about 20,000 people, or nearly one-seventh of the insured population. There are still many jobs which...

Development Areas ( 2 Mai 1955)

Mr Donald Kaberry: I apologise. I should have referred to Lanarkshire as a whole. Among the major projects, perhaps I may mention in particular the factory for Ranco, Limited, at Bellshill. Work upon it is expected to start during the next few weeks, and it is likely to provide employment for up to 1,000 people. I think that answer ought to dispel the fears which the hon. Lady expressed about the future of...

Development Areas ( 2 Mai 1955)

Mr Donald Kaberry: We all know the speed with which buildings can be prefabricated and put up quickly, but experience is that persons chosen or asked to go to sites in any area prefer, if possible, to put up their own buildings to suit their own requirements. There is a risk that a building put up may stay empty for some time, involving expense, and this risk is, in fact, heightened if the area is a...

Development Areas ( 2 Mai 1955)

Mr Donald Kaberry: Perhaps I may be allowed to leave the whole series of questions fired at me for my hon. Friend to reply to at the end of the debate. I can assure hon. Members that the most careful note is being taken of these points, and that answers will be given. So far as I know no direct representations have been made, but I am open to correction on that point and I should like an opportunity of...

Development Areas ( 2 Mai 1955)

Mr Donald Kaberry: No. The Government have not abandoned it at all, for the reasons which I have been giving. It is believed that in view of the demands made for specific building to be up to the requirements of individual industrialists it is a far better way of introducing buildings into the Development Areas. In the Development Areas generally, in South Wales the male unemployment figure was down in March...

Development Areas ( 2 Mai 1955)

Mr Donald Kaberry: In North-East Lancashire. Areas like some of the textile districts and Development Areas like that of Merseyside have proved attractive to industry and major developments are to take place at several points.

Development Areas ( 2 Mai 1955)

Mr Donald Kaberry: Perhaps I may just say this. The figures that I have been giving show throughout that there is more factory space, more employment, and an overall lowering in the unemployment figures.

Development Areas ( 2 Mai 1955)

Mr Donald Kaberry: Yes. That has been our policy.

Development Areas ( 2 Mai 1955)

Mr Donald Kaberry: The figures show what has been done.

Development Areas ( 2 Mai 1955)

Mr Donald Kaberry: I have given the right hon. Gentleman figures and statistics area by area, showing the progress which has been made during the last three-and-a-half years by the present Administration. That is the policy that we have pursued. We have been determined to show that the Development Areas are not depressed areas. I have tried to show that the Development Areas themselves are able to give services...
