Member for the Pollok Division of Glas- gow, as representing the First Commissioner of Works, if his attention has been drawn to the efforts now being made to re-establish the financial position of metropolitan hospitals; if, in view of the exceptional circumstances of the case, he is prepared to waive the rule forbidding the erection of advertisements in the royal parks;...

Orders of the Day — Army Estimates, 1922–23.: Number of Land Forces. (22 Mar 1922)

Mr Francis Mildmay: I beg to move to reduce the Vote by five men. I am fully conscious that I have not the technical and departmental knowledge entitling me to speak with any authority as to military requirements, but, equally, do I realise that we Members of the House of Commons, as representing our constituents, have to balance carefully the military and the financial requirements of the moment. A little time...

Orders of the Day — Army Estimates, 1922–23.: Number of Land Forces. (22 Mar 1922)

Mr Francis Mildmay: Some ex-service Members were absent. I must confess that investigation on these lines has been most disquieting, and the important speech made by the gallant Field-Marshal the Member for North Down (Field-Marshal Sir H. Wilson) on the Army Estimates the other day did not allay our fears. The responsibilities which our dwindling forces are called upon to defend are so indefinite, perhaps so...

Mr Francis Mildmay: I should like to compliment the hon. Member for Bodmin (Mr. Foot) on his maiden speech. He and I have been closely acquainted in the past under strenuous circumstances, and I am glad to be able to congratulate him on having so ably acquitted himself. I have listened with the greatest interest to the Debate and especially to the last speech, which was most impressive and cannot fail to have...

National Expenditure.: Savings Already Effected. (1 Mar 1922)

Mr Francis Mildmay: I should like, first of all, to congratulate the Chancellor of the Exchequer on his admirably practical and lucid speech. There was no attempt to conceal anything. He gave the House all the information at his disposal, and I am sure that all will agree that his speech was most convincing. I have been reading lately the proceedings at various bye-elections, and I find it very difficult to have...

National Expenditure.: Savings Already Effected. (1 Mar 1922)

Mr Francis Mildmay: I am very glad indeed to hear that. I will not say more, in view of the fact that we shall discuss these details in connection with the various Estimates, but will conclude by again congratulating the right hon. Gentleman on the admirable way in which he has completely countered all the misrepresentations connected with the Geddes Report which have been so effective in recent elections.

Oral Answers to Questions — Ex-Service Men.: Munitions and Stores. (9 Feb 1922)

Mr Francis Mildmay: Can the right hon. Gentleman confirm the statement in the Press this morning that the kidnapped Sligo men, including Sir Jocelyn Gore Booth, have been released: whether only the Sligo victims have been released; and whether, if they have received exceptional treatment, it is due to the fact that Sir Jocelyn Gore Booth is a brother of the Countess Markievicz?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foot-and-Mouth Disease.: Statement by Sir a. Boscawen. (8 Feb 1922)

Mr Francis Mildmay: (by Private Notice) asked the Minister of Health whether he can find it possible to take steps which will result in immediate action based on the recommendations of Lord Cave's Report with reference to the financial position of hospitals?

Orders of the Day — Railways Bill. (30 May 1921)

Mr Francis Mildmay: I think that the House will be agreed as to the geniality of the speech to which we have just listened. I agree with both the last speakers as to the supreme importance of this Bill. While I am anxious to say a few words in regard to it, one cannot help being daunted by the difficulties of dissecting this Bill with its 75 Clauses and seven Schedules, and I have some doubt of my ability to do...

Orders of the Day — Railways Bill. (30 May 1921)

Mr Francis Mildmay: I think I am entitled to say that on behalf of the majority of railway companies. That may be taken as the position until it is contradicted. The railway companies are entitled to the thanks of the community for what they have lately done. They have been faced, like the great mining industry, with all the difficulties of decontrol, and it seems to me they have met those difficulties far more...

Orders of the Day — Railways Bill. (30 May 1921)

Mr Francis Mildmay: I hope the right hon. Gentleman will pardon me for interrupting him, but has he taken into consideration the passages in the railwaymen's newspapers giving their opinion on this point?

Orders of the Day — Railways Bill. (30 May 1921)

Mr Francis Mildmay: Without any desire to interrupt the right hon. Gentleman, will he allow me to ask him whether he has any more recent expressions of opinion, which most strongly express the determination of those on behalf of whom he is speaking to have no representation on the boards of directors?
