Orders of the Day — Ministry of Munitions.: MR. Kellaway's Statement. (24 Jun 1919)

Mr Alfred Bigland: The Parliamentary Secretary has disclosed to us many things which have been kept secret until the happy time has come when peace is with us, and we may talk of some of the things which the Ministry of Munitions did in the past three or four years. I should like to say a word or two as to the splendid work which has been done by the Ministry with regard to the Propellants Department. I was...

Trade and Commerce.: Restrictions on Imports. (24 Jun 1919)

Mr Alfred Bigland: The fact that Mr. Speaker allowed the Motion for the Adjournment shows that in his mind the subject is one of urgency. It is certainly a fateful moment for this country when it pronounces its new economic policy. We have been waiting very patiently because we knew of the difficulties of the Government on these matters, but the Leader of the House stated plainly that we should have a...

Orders of the Day — Continuation of Duties (Customs). (7 May 1919)

Mr Alfred Bigland: To us it seems perfectly clear that this question of an Imperial Preference rate on motor cars will be reconsidered, when the promise of the Leader of the House is fulfilled, and before the 1st September a thoroughly considered scheme of Fiscal Reform is put before the House. It is perfectly evident to us that the Imperial Preference rates that may be put on may be changed, and the Chancellor...

Orders of the Day — Spirits (Excise). (7 May 1919)

Mr Alfred Bigland: I should just like to say one word in reply to the hon. Member for Belfast. This is the second speech in the House in which he has raised this question of—shall I say?—the wickedness of taxing Ireland, which is getting nothing in return.

Orders of the Day — Spirits (Excise). (7 May 1919)

Mr Alfred Bigland: I would suggest to the hon. Member that if he will read the speeches in this House of the late William Redmond, when he begged the Chancellor of the Exchequer of that day to give a Preference on tobacco grown in Ireland, which would be the greatest boon to Ireland and would enable eighteen people per acre to be employed all the year round, in tobacco growing, he will consider the matter...

Orders of the Day — Supply. — [5TH March].: Vote on Account. (10 Mar 1919)

Mr Alfred Bigland: I was amongst those who came down this afternoon rather with the feeling that we should have a good deal of fault to find with the Government, but I think many of us are relieved in that the Government have now stated plainly what their intention is. Personally, I recognise the great difficulty in which the Government have been placed from the fact that the blockade still exists. Until that...

Orders of the Day — Supply. — [5TH March].: Vote on Account. (10 Mar 1919)

Mr Alfred Bigland: All completely finished manufactures.

Orders of the Day — Procedure Rules.: Government Proposals. (19 Feb 1919)

Orders of the Day — Procedure Rules.: Government Proposals. (19 Feb 1919)

Mr Alfred Bigland: Would it be possible to have a Division on the question after the Minister of the Crown has moved it?

Orders of the Day — Imperial Productive Enterprise. (13 Feb 1919)

Mr Alfred Bigland: I beg to second the Amendment. I think it must be something rather novel in our House of Commons to hear of a proposal to raise the revenue from sources other than taxation I have sat in this House for night years, and I have never before heard any such proposals. The Mover of the Amendment desires that an inquiry should be made as to whether it is possible to raise the revenue by means other...
