Orders of the Day — UNIVERSITIES OF OXFORD AND CAMBRIDGE BILL [Lords].: Clause 6. — (Duties of Commissioners.) (20 Jul 1923)

Mr James Ede: I have tried to find out what the last few sentences of the hon. Member who has just spoken have to do with the admission of women to Cambridge University, and I am as perplexed as you were, Mr. Deputy-Speaker. I was equally perplexed with the speech of the right hon. and learned Member for Warwick (Sir E. Pollock), because in the first part of his speech he argued that the powers that we...

Orders of the Day — UNIVERSITIES OF OXFORD AND CAMBRIDGE BILL [Lords].: Clause 6. — (Duties of Commissioners.) (20 Jul 1923)

Mr James Ede: I beg to second the Amendment. I understand that the Minister of Education desires to make a communication to the House on the point before us: therefore I am not going to spoil it by making a bad speech in front of him. I do, however, want briefly to draw the attention of the House to the fact that the Commission referred to the system of scholarships in vogue at the time of their report,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education.: Teachers (War Service). (26 Jul 1923)

Mr James Ede: Does the Noble Lord realise that the answer given and the practice that it represents makes it almost impossible to carry on local government when his Board attempt to apply circulars retrospectively to expenditure now nearly three years old?

Mr James Ede: 76. asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury if he is aware that the Epsom urban district council borrowed £6,750 from the Public Works Loans Commissioners in September, 1919, at 5½ per centum interest or such other rate as may be fixed by the Lords Commissioners of His Majesty's Treasury on the sum of £6,750 or on such part thereof as shall for the time being remain unpaid; that on...

Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Air Force.: Public Works Loan (Epsom). (26 Jul 1923)

Mr James Ede: Does the right hon. Gentleman think that it is fair that as this local authority had to follow the rate of interest when it went up they should now be debarred from following it when it is going down?

Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Air Force.: Public Works Loan (Epsom). (26 Jul 1923)

Orders of the Day — Rent and Mortgage Interest Restrictions Bill.: New Clause a. — (Determination of certain leases and tenancies.) (30 Jul 1923)

Mr James Ede: I oppose the new Clause, mainly for the first reason given by the hon. and learned Member for South Shields (Mr. Harney). It seems almost trifling with the House to ask us, in the few hours that remain before this Bill must become an Act of Parliament, to discuss and accept a principle which is vital to the whole question of decontrol. We discussed many things in Committee, but this point was...

Orders of the Day — Private Business.: Oyster and Mussel Fishery (Seasalter and Ham) Provisional Order Bill. (30 Jul 1923)

Mr James Ede: I want to deal with one aspect of the matter which has been forced upon me by the hon. Member to whom we have just listened. It seems to me that for the last hour or so we have slipped back about 120 years in time, and have been listening once again to the old arguments used when it was proposed to enclose the commons. For my sins, 10 years ago I had to read through a good many of the...

Orders of the Day — Private Business.: Oyster and Mussel Fishery (Seasalter and Ham) Provisional Order Bill. (30 Jul 1923)

Mr James Ede: The right to work as a free man in your own vessel is of very considerable value, even if you cannot assess it from the money point of view. What we have to realise is that this miserable area spoken of so contemptuously by the last speaker of only just over one square mile—these 730 acres—represents almost the last on which these men can ply their particular industry, and even if that is...

Oral Answers to Questions — Housing: Subsidised Houses (Prices). (1 Aug 1923)

Mr James Ede: Will the right hon. Gentleman say how, unless these restrictions are imposed, it will be possible to prevent a recurrence of the scandal of houses built partly out of public funds being held up by builders charging exorbitant prices?
