Orders of the Day — Statement by DR. Addison. (7 Apr 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: We have a special organisation to deal with these cases, and it is very important to get these men out.

Orders of the Day — Statement by DR. Addison. (7 Apr 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I think it does, but we do not anticipate a shortage of cement. Another detail that may be mentioned is the suggestion to use Army huts as another auxiliary. I think these are not altogether so attractive as at first sight might appear to be. The Disposal Board of the Ministry of Munitions has erected some of them as model houses in fifteen different towns, and there they will be open for...

Orders of the Day — Statement by DR. Addison. (7 Apr 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: The week-to-week progress of the scheme will then be seen, and it will also be seen whether a case has or has not been kept a long time in the Department. I fully expect that my hon. friend and myself will come under the harrow some time, at all events in this House, because it will be found that week after week goes by and some particular scheme has not received sanction. A regular system of...

Orders of the Day — Statement by DR. Addison. (7 Apr 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: That was the value with unrestricted user. The value with restricted user in respect to housing would be less.

Orders of the Day — Statement by DR. Addison. (7 Apr 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: Oh, yes. Part I. of the scheme covers acquisition in all schemes in connection therewith.

Orders of the Day — Statement by DR. Addison. (7 Apr 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I am glad the right hon. Member put it that way, because I did not blame, but I stated facts and gave, as I thought, reasons for them.

Ministry of Health Bill. (9 Apr 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I beg to move, That the Bill be recommitted to a Committee of the Whole House in respect of the Amendments to Clause 10 standing in the name of the Attorney-General for Ireland. The object of this Motion is to carry cut an arrangement arrived at with regard to the Clause relating to Ireland.

Clause 2. — (General Powers and Duties of Minister in Relation to Health.) (9 Apr 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I beg to move, after the word "defects," to insert the words "the initiation and direction of research." This Amendment makes good what appears to be an omission in the drafting of the Clause, and has to be inserted in order to make it quite clear.

Clause 2. — (General Powers and Duties of Minister in Relation to Health.) (9 Apr 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I am quite prepared to accept the Amendment, which makes clear what is our intention.

Clause 2. — (General Powers and Duties of Minister in Relation to Health.) (9 Apr 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: This Amendment reproduces in a somewhat modified form the Amendment which the hon. Baronet reminds us was discussed in Committee at great length. After the discussion in Committee there was a Division on the Amendment, which was rejected by 33 votes to 14. I am not going to weary the House by going over the ground which I then went over with respect to the Amendment. I recognise the hon....

Clause 2. — (General Powers and Duties of Minister in Relation to Health.) (9 Apr 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: Very well, if that is the case I do not see any benefit by the insertion of this Amendment. Let me, on the understanding which I have previously stated—I hope quite frankly—say that if we want any additional powers we will come and ask for them. We have, however, to bear in mind that in demobilisation there are some very difficult points. A number of experts and others from the different...

Clause 3. — (Transfer of Powers and Duties to and from Minister.) (9 Apr 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I beg to move, at the end of Sub-section (1, e), to insert the words Provided that, for the purpose of facilitating the effective exercise and performance of these powers and duties, the Minister may make arrangements with the Board of Education respecting the submission and approval of schemes of local education authorities and the payment of grants to local education authorities, so far as...

Clause 3. — (Transfer of Powers and Duties to and from Minister.) (9 Apr 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: They are.

Clause 3. — (Transfer of Powers and Duties to and from Minister.) (9 Apr 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: How does this contradict the decision of the Committee upstairs?

Clause 3. — (Transfer of Powers and Duties to and from Minister.) (9 Apr 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: That was in the scheme.

Clause 3. — (Transfer of Powers and Duties to and from Minister.) (9 Apr 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: Perhaps by leave of the House I may be permitted to again intervene in the Debate. Some hon. Members who have spoken on this subject have really not been fair to me. They do not seem to have read the Amendment. The hon. Member who spoke last was good enough to refer to some of the words of the Amendment, but the hon. Baronet behind me (Sir C. Warner) said something as to which the Amendment...

Clause 3. — (Transfer of Powers and Duties to and from Minister.) (9 Apr 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I am quite willing to accept these words.

Clause 5. — (Provisions as to Wales.) (9 Apr 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I am sure the House of Commons will be asking themselves what crime I have committed in Committee upstairs. I think the hon. Member for Battersea (Mr. Morris) might in justice compare the proposals in this Bill with the present position, and then he would find that, instead of taking away from Wales powers she already has, and setting up some monstrous bureaucracy that is going to do all...

Clause 5. — (Provisions as to Wales.) (9 Apr 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: No, we are not, and for this reason: It has been said many times that we want to create a system of national Paliaments in the United Kingdom, and, personally, I believe that that is the only efficient way of dealing with the government of the United Kingdom at present. But when we want to do that in the House of Commons we shall do it by calling it the setting up of national Parliaments, and...

Clause 11. — (Short Title, Commencement, and Repeal, and Interpretation.) (9 Apr 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: I beg to move, in Subsection (1), after the word "year" ["shall not be earlier than one year"], to insert the words or not later than three years. I move this Amendment to carry out an understanding arrived at by which I promised to insert these words.
