Old Age and Widows' Pensions Act, 1940. ( 5 Meh 1940)

Mr Malcolm Macdonald: With regard to the point raised by the hon. Member for Ebbw Vale (Mr. Bevan), I can assure him that there is no intention of making what we would regard as the exceptional case into the general case. We certainly intend that in the vast majority of cases, if not in all of them, the payments should continue as at present to persons who are getting relief from public assistance authorities....

Old Age and Widows' Pensions Act, 1940. ( 5 Meh 1940)

Mr Malcolm Macdonald: Generally speaking, the answer is that the equivalent of these payments in kind will be paid in cash, but there again I cannot give an absolute pledge that it will be so in every case. In the vast majority of cases, however, it is the intention that payments now being made in kind shall have their equivalents in cash under the new Regulations. In addition to that, apart from the fact that...

Old Age and Widows' Pensions Act, 1940. ( 5 Meh 1940)

Mr Malcolm Macdonald: The 24 authorities whose scales with regard to single pensioners are more generous than those proposed under the Regulations are responsible for something under 20 per cent. of the pensioners at present in receipt of relief. The eight authorities whose scales are more generous than ours for a married couple, both of whom are pensioners, are responsible for about 12½ per cent. of the...

Old Age and Widows' Pensions Act, 1940. ( 5 Meh 1940)

Mr Malcolm Macdonald: As I understand it the pledge given was that actual payment would be made. It is a pledge covering the actual payments received by individuals.

Old Age and Widows' Pensions Act, 1940. ( 5 Meh 1940)

Mr Malcolm Macdonald: If injustice has been done that injustice will be corrected under these Regulations. The pledge was not that people in receipt of payments should receive exactly what they are getting to-day. It was that in the vast majority of cases there should be no reduction. There is ample provision for increases if they are justified by the facts of the case or the household. It might be said in regard...

Old Age and Widows' Pensions Act, 1940. ( 5 Meh 1940)

Mr Malcolm Macdonald: The whole matter was actually under consideration at the time the Government was changed. A final decision had not been taken although certain tentative decisions had been reached. I think it is quite fair to tell the House that as a result of the examination of the tentative conclusions there is some alteration in the scales proposed.

Old Age and Widows' Pensions Act, 1940. ( 5 Meh 1940)

Mr Malcolm Macdonald: May I leave that to the imagination of the House?

Old Age and Widows' Pensions Act, 1940. ( 5 Meh 1940)

Mr Malcolm Macdonald: The "good" authorities.

Old Age and Widows' Pensions Act, 1940. ( 5 Meh 1940)

Mr Malcolm Macdonald: I think the House is entitled to a perfectly clear answer. The answer is, yes, save in the absolutely exceptional case. I was asked for an illustration of what I meant by the exceptional case and I gave it, because it is important that we should not have the pledge stretched to cover the exceptional case. I do not say that the case exists, but there may be instances of a couple who, under...

Oral Answers to Questions — Military Service.: Drainage (Wednesfield). (30 Mai 1940)

Mr Malcolm Macdonald: I am arranging for one of my inspectors to visit the area as soon as practicable.

Oral Answers to Questions — Military Service.: Drainage (Wednesfield). (30 Mai 1940)

Mr Malcolm Macdonald: Certainly, I will let the hon. Member know when he is going.

Oral Answers to Questions — Civil Defence.: Evacuation (Invalids). (23 Mai 1940)

Mr Malcolm Macdonald: I am afraid that it is not practicable to include within the Government's evacuation scheme arrangements for the removal of adult invalids such as those who are bedridden.

Oral Answers to Questions — Civil Defence.: Evacuation (Invalids). (23 Mai 1940)

Mr Malcolm Macdonald: If we can do anything to assist these bodies we shall be glad to do so, but the whole position must be governed by the prospect of accommodation in the reception areas.

Orders of the Day — Colonial Development and Welfare Bill. (21 Mai 1940)

Mr Malcolm Macdonald: I beg to move, "That the Bill be now read a Second time." The heart of every Member in the House to-day is gripped by a deep anxiety, and throughout the nation that anxiety is felt, for so much of the most vigorous and best of our young manhood is at this moment exposed to mortal danger. In the fields of Belgium, in the air, and on the sea, they are engaged in defending, against a ruthless...

Orders of the Day — Colonial Development and Welfare Bill. (21 Mai 1940)

Mr Malcolm Macdonald: I was referring to all sorts of works, such as irrigation, agricultural development works, and similar works of economic development which will increase productivity. Our object under this legislation is to develop the Colonies so that as far as possible they become self-supporting units. But in the meantime their citizens must enjoy a proper standard of social services, and we shall count as...

Orders of the Day — Colonial Development and Welfare Bill. (21 Mai 1940)

Mr Malcolm Macdonald: rose—

Orders of the Day — Colonial Development and Welfare Bill. (21 Mai 1940)

Mr Malcolm Macdonald: I can, of course, intervene in this Debate again only by leave of the House. [HON. MEMBERS: "Agreed."] I have sat through a number of Debates on Colonial affairs during recent years, and, as hon. Members have been good enough to remind me, one or two of them have been rather difficult experiences for the ex-Secretary of State for the Colonies. I certainly can say that I have never sat through...

Orders of the Day — Colonial Development and Welfare Bill. (21 Mai 1940)

Mr Malcolm Macdonald: I have to be careful what I say, as I am not now Secretary of State, but when I was in that office I never contemplated any change in the land system in West Africa. I am not aware that any changes are in contemplation, but I do not think I ought to make any statement on major policy on matters which fall outside the scope of this Bill Perhaps the hon. Member will be satisfied with an...

Orders of the Day — Colonial Development and Welfare Bill. (21 Mai 1940)

Mr Malcolm Macdonald: I should not like to commit myself or my successor to any particular procedure in a case like that. The Advisory Committee have not yet been established, though the chairman has been selected, and it will be for the Advisory Committee, in consultation with the Secretary of State, to work out its actual procedure. But I do say this, that I fully appreciate the great force of the point which...

Orders of the Day — Colonial Development and Welfare Bill. (21 Mai 1940)

Mr Malcolm Macdonald: I remember reading very carefully the speech which was made by my Noble Friend Lord Duffer in, who was a most brilliant Under-Secretary of State, and whose departure from office in the Government I very much regret, and do not think that the hon. Member has represented him quite correctly. He did say that there would be on the committee business men with an interest in social problems and...
