Canlyniadau 21–40 o 1039 ar gyfer speaker:Mr Malcolm Macdonald

Orders of the Day — Health of the Nation. (17 Hyd 1940)

Mr Malcolm Macdonald: I cannot do so at the moment, but perhaps my hon. Friend will be able to do so at the end of the Debate. As I was saying, the outbreak of the worst disease, which was the outbreak of war in 1939, did disturb, interrupt and threaten a great deal that was precious. At its very beginning it threw a new kind of strain on our health services, which they successfully withstood, and which shows how...

Orders of the Day — Health of the Nation. (17 Hyd 1940)

Mr Malcolm Macdonald: I am coming to that. There are a few simple things which are fundamental to health, things which have tended to be too long neglected and which would build up a foundation of sound health that it would be exceedingly difficult to shake. One of those fundamental needs is the consumption of adequate quantities of the right kinds of food. The importance of body-building and protective foods is...

Orders of the Day — Health of the Nation. (17 Hyd 1940)

Mr Malcolm Macdonald: I did not propose to deal with that matter, but perhaps if my hon. and gallant Friend wishes to raise it, he will do so if he catches Mr. Speaker's eye, and my hon. Friend the Parliamentary Secretary will deal with the matter. As I was saying, we are exceedingly anxious that the emergency hospitals should not only serve military and civilian casualties, and the military sick. My right hon....

Orders of the Day — Health of the Nation. (17 Hyd 1940)

Mr Malcolm Macdonald: That is another matter which we shall certainly be ready to consider with the Council if they wish to make an application about it. The decision which I have just announced applies only to local authorities.

Orders of the Day — Health of the Nation. (17 Hyd 1940)

Mr Malcolm Macdonald: We have an agreement with the Service Departments that their cases can be treated. This national service will cover every category of the population.

Orders of the Day — Health of the Nation. (17 Hyd 1940)

Mr Malcolm Macdonald: Certainly, the 75 per cent. is towards facilities which are required for civil or military cases arising out of the new circumstances of the war. Finally, there is a problem which looms out of the winter darkness ahead of us. If you search for the people of London at nights now you do not find the great majority of them in their houses. Their living rooms with fires in the hearths and their...

Orders of the Day — Health of the Nation. (17 Hyd 1940)

Mr Malcolm Macdonald: He is an expert on health matters and the committee is representative of different types of experience in this question. He and his colleagues have spent much time in studying conditions in London shelters and have made a number of valuable recommendations. Every recommendation has been accepted and is being acted upon. The Committee continues in being; its members will watch the situation...

Orders of the Day — Health of the Nation. (17 Hyd 1940)

Mr Malcolm Macdonald: In the L.C.C. area some 300,000 out of 500,000 have left. This is for the larger area, not the whole region, but from the evacuation areas in the London Region. At the present time, mothers and children are leaving London at the rate of several thousands each day and every few days we are taking some hundreds of the aged and in- firm—who are among the most difficult problems in the...

Orders of the Day — Health of the Nation. (17 Hyd 1940)

Mr Malcolm Macdonald: I do not know that a definition by me, even as Minister of Health after getting proper advice, would be valuable, but we have done something which is more useful and it is this: we have asked local medical officers, with such assistance as they require, to go to rest centres and shelters to look at the aged and infirm and ask them whether they are ready to be evacuated. We have left it to...

Orders of the Day — Health of the Nation. (17 Hyd 1940)

Mr Malcolm Macdonald: The local authorities are acting as the agents of the central organisation and it is the London regional organisation under the Minister of Home Security, which is responsible. They issue their instructions to the local authoties, who are supposed to carry them out. There is a certain amount of inspection already. This is one of the things which will be regularly inspected, not only by the...

Orders of the Day — Health of the Nation. (17 Hyd 1940)

Mr Malcolm Macdonald: Certainly. The London Passenger Transport authorities are being as helpful as they could be about all these shelter matters, and they have said they will be guided by the Ministry of Home Security, the responsible Department on these matters of sanitary provisions as well as other matters, and the standard which is laid down for other places used as large public shelters is already laid down...

Orders of the Day — Health of the Nation. (17 Hyd 1940)

Mr Malcolm Macdonald: We are very familiar with a great many cases but I should certainly welcome information about cases like that. This involves, of course, the manufacture of a very large number of latrines. They are being turned out as rapidly as possible. Hon. Members who are accustomed to go round to these places must recognise that in some of the big shelters the increase of supply has been very steady for...

Orders of the Day — Health of the Nation. (17 Hyd 1940)

Mr Malcolm Macdonald: I hope the hon. Member will let me have, at any rate in confidence, the name of the hospital concerned, because it is our policy that these centres should be set up in all hospitals.

Oral Answers to Questions — Civil Defence.: Evacuation. (10 Hyd 1940)

Mr Malcolm Macdonald: My Department has already ensured by instructions to its Senior Regional Officers and to the local authorities that in any instance where there might he a shortage of blankets and bedding it should be made good at the earliest possible moment.

Oral Answers to Questions — Civil Defence.: Evacuation. (10 Hyd 1940)

Mr Malcolm Macdonald: I quite appreciate that point. We are doing everything we can from public funds to increase the provision of this equipment.

Oral Answers to Questions — Civil Defence.: Evacuation. (10 Hyd 1940)

Mr Malcolm Macdonald: In considering what further evacuation should be carried out, I must have regard to the accommodation available in receiving areas, and must give priority to districts which are most densely populated and are likely to suffer most. In the light of these considerations I am considering the hon. Member's suggestion.

Oral Answers to Questions — Civil Defence.: Evacuation. (10 Hyd 1940)

Mr Malcolm Macdonald: We are not only surveying them, but we have increased the evacuation area of London in several instances. If the hon. Member knows of other areas which he would like to be covered, perhaps he will give me particulars.

Air-Raid Precautions. ( 9 Hyd 1940)

Mr Malcolm Macdonald: The hon. Member for North Camberwell (Mr. Ammon) in the course of his speech touched on a number of questions which involve two or three different Departments. With regard to those matters which fall to the Ministry of Home Security and those which fall to the Air Ministry, replies will be made during the Debate by the appropriate representatives of those Departments. In the concluding part...

Air-Raid Precautions. ( 9 Hyd 1940)

Mr Malcolm Macdonald: If that is so, my case is even stronger, but I do not think it is so. I think our senior regional officers may well in verbal conversation with the authorities have said the circular meant at least one hot meal every day, but I think the exact wording of the circular was "simple food."

Air-Raid Precautions. ( 9 Hyd 1940)

Mr Malcolm Macdonald: He is the head of the Ministry of Health team in the region. For some reason or other, in the London area these hot meals were not served at the beginning, and, as soon as that fact became apparent, I asked representatives of the London County Council to come and see me on the Monday following the first bombing, and I told them it was our full intention that a hot meal should be served every...
