Civil Estimates, 1929.: Ministry of Labour. (24 Apr 1929)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: I agree that it is a pitiful thing that the Leader of the Liberal party should have carefully abstained from being present on every occasion when the subject has arisen. I notice that the hon. Member for West Middlesbrough (Mr. Griffith) was very anxious to defend his leader from the charge of deserting the House on this occasion, but I thought his defence was somewhat weak. He said the...

Civil Estimates, 1929.: Ministry of Labour. (24 Apr 1929)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: —by raising the school age, or, in other words, by a great system of increased benefits to all so to raise the purchasing power of the people that they will be able to stimulate the whole home market. That, I am quite convinced, is not the way we should approach this problem. Our last state would be worse than the first. When we have restored the position of the markets of the world, then...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Ministry of Labour. (30 Apr 1928)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: I am sure we have all listened with extreme interest to the speech of the last speaker. I confess that I thought the criticism of the Government by the Mover of the Amendment was ineffective, but until I came into the House a short time ago I had no reason to suppose that the arts of Hyde Park were brought into this Chamber. The speech of the right hon. Gentleman who has just sat down is...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Ministry of Labour. (30 Apr 1928)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: It rather ties one's hands in discussing unemployment if, when hon. Members opposite demand, "What have you done, and what are you going to do?" we are prevented from explaining what we believe to be a very efficient step in the right direction. What did the right hon. Member for Preston suggest as a cure? He said, "We are not here to do the job; it is your job." That is a very easy manner of...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Ministry of Labour. (30 Apr 1928)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: Perhaps I ought to have spoken earlier, and then I might have avoided falling under your jurisdiction. I must apologise, but I find it exceedingly difficult to know exactly what are the limits of this Debate. The right hon. Member for Preston would have us believe that the Government are doing nothing, and that Members on this side of the Committee have no appreciation of the problem. If one...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Ministry of Labour. (30 Apr 1928)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: I thought just now from their reception of my statement that unemployment was caused by bad trade that hon. Members regarded this as such an accepted fact, that it was almost childish to mention it. But if they agree that unemployment is caused by bad trade and increased foreign competition, and the difficulty of our manufacturers in selling our goods in the markets of the world, then it...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Ministry of Labour. (30 Apr 1928)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: I was desirous of suggesting that the Minister of Labour should exercise his influence in the proper quarters to secure facilities for the training of intending migrants. A great deal could be done in that direction. In Bristol we have just set up a training establishment for intending migrants, and the difficulty which we are up against is the fact that it is largely dependent upon charity....

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Ministry of Labour. (30 Apr 1928)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: I do not blame the Labour party for not solving the problem, but I do blame them for not admitting the difficulties of the Govern- ment and the efforts which they are making to solve it.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education.: Workers' Educational Association (Grants). (26 Apr 1928)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: 13. asked the President of the Board of Education what is the nature of the Board's grants to the Workers' Educational Association; and if he is satisfied with the manner in which these grants are expended by this association?

Oral Answers to Questions — Education.: Workers' Educational Association (Grants). (26 Apr 1928)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: Is the right hon. Gentleman not aware that the Workers' Educational Association was at one time intimately connected pith the National Council of Labour Colleges, which is avowedly an extremist organisation; that comment has been aroused by the fact that in one class a Communist, teacher is employed; and that considerable doubt exists in the minds of Members on this side of the House as to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education.: Workers' Educational Association (Grants). (3 Apr 1928)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: 63. asked the President of the Board of Education what is the amount of the grant which the Workers' Educational Association receives from the Board of Education; and for what purpose is it given?

Oral Answers to Questions — Education.: Workers' Educational Association (Grants). (3 Apr 1928)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: May I ask the right hon. Gentleman whether he has seen the issue of the "Highway," the official organ of the Workers' Educational Association, for the month of January, which contains articles on the mining question by Mr. Tawney, Mr. S. O. Davis, and the hon. Member for Mansfield (Mr. Varley), and which is, in fact, simply an organ of Socialist propaganda?

Oral Answers to Questions — Education.: Workers' Educational Association (Grants). (3 Apr 1928)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: May I ask the right hon. Gentleman whether, in view of the fact that he has not seen this number of the "Highway," he will peruse it at his leisure and that he will then consider the withdrawal of Government support to this Association.

Orders of the Day — Empire Trade. (14 Mar 1928)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: I claim the indulgence of the House for my maiden speech. I make no apologies for entering into this discussion, because I believe that the question of the development of our Empire trade is going to play, perhaps, the most important part in the solution of the many difficulties with which we are faced. The hon. Member who has just sat down has taken us to Russia and to China, but the object...
