Oral Answers to Questions — National Health Insurance.: Reigate and Redhill Hospital. (14 Mar 1923)

Mr James Ede: 76. asked the Minister of health if he is aware that it is proposed to spend £30,000 in alterations to the Reigate and Redhill Hospital, which is built on a cramped and unsuitable site; whether the Surrey Voluntary Hospitals Committee, of which the Lord Chancellor is chairman, has given careful consideration to the proposal and has advised the hospital authorities not to proceed on the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Housing.: Workmen's Houses. (21 Mar 1923)

Oral Answers to Questions — Civil Aviation.: Croydon Aerodrome (Housing). (22 Mar 1923)

Mr James Ede: 64. asked the Secretary of State for Air if, in connection with the proposed developments to the Croydon aerodrome, he contemplates providing housing for the persons who will be employed there when the developed aerodrome is at work; whether he is aware that the housing shortage is particularly acute in the neighborhoods of the aerodrome; and, if he does not propose to build houses as part of...

Education. (29 Mar 1923)

Mr James Ede: I am sure the House will extend to me its indulgence when I rise to address it for the first time especially when I have to follow one who has for so many years charmed its ear. I am entirely a product of the public school system of this country. I first went to an elementary school and, owing to the sacrifices made for me by my parents and from the assistance granted from public funds, I was...

Education. (29 Mar 1923)

Mr James Ede: I quite accept that. I would undertake to race anyone up the ladder of education if I could get my foot on it first. The secondary system of education suffers because we think of it in terms of the ladder. The present system of admission to secondary schools is merely placing a premium on precocity, and I suggest that precocity is not a thing to be unnecessarily encouraged. I desire to see...

Education. (29 Mar 1923)

Mr James Ede: The teacher, an under-qualified, supplementary teacher, that is, a young lady over 18 years of age who has been vaccinated, hearing a crow outside, remarked that the crow's performance was better than mine, and from that moment I have lost all interest in singing. But I suggest to the House that the infant school, from that point of view, is really the most essential part of a sound...

Army and Air Force (Annual)Bill.: New Clause. — (Amendment of Section 42.) (12 Apr 1923)

Mr James Ede: I desire to say a few words on this Amendment and I should like first to deal with the last point made by the right hon. Gentleman who replied for the Government. I feel as one who was wearing His Majesty's uniform before the right. hon. Gentleman who spoke opposite was born, and who was in the National Reserve at the outbreak of war, and who came up at once and served until after the...

Army and Air Force (Annual)Bill.: New Clause. — (Amendment of Section 42.) (12 Apr 1923)

Mr James Ede: I was trying to support the argument with which I started that it was necessary to have an independent tribunal so as to break with the old tradition. The question that was asked me was how much of my private income I would be prepared to devote to the commission. I do feel if you have an army based on a tradition like that, if we are going to get real justice for an officer with new ideas...

Army and Air Force (Annual)Bill.: New Clause. — (Amendment Of Section 4). (12 Apr 1923)

Mr James Ede: The Financial Secretary to the War Office said that the Army Council and other authorities he consulted were unanimous that the death penalty must be retained if discipline was to be preserved, but 12 months ago the same story was told about Field Punishment, No. 1, and now we are told it can be safely abolished. The hon. Member for Taunton (Mr. Hope Simpson) said that men showed cowardice in...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries. (19 Apr 1923)

Mr James Ede: I should like, in the first place, to deal with the statement of the Minister of Agriculture with regard to his scheme for rural scholarships. I think, on the whole, it is a good scheme, but it is deplorably small. We are not going to do any real good for agriculture in the way of education until we are prepared to spend as much upon it, and in as many ways, as does Denmark. One point, in...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries. (19 Apr 1923)

Mr James Ede: The right hon. Gentleman made one further statement that was news to me, namely, that the public landlord gets his rent. I think the Minister of Agriculture will tell us that very few small holdings committees are getting very much of the rents at the present time.

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries. (19 Apr 1923)

Mr James Ede: I can only speak for one county, and their arrears are really appalling. What is worse, all the while these arrears are allowed to mount up, you are further breaking the hearts of the men, because they see themselves continually faced with a wall of debt, through which they cannot hope to escape.

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries. (19 Apr 1923)

Mr James Ede: We met the smallholders in our county, and they met us in a very reasonable way, They said: "If there were no housing shortage we should certainly have left these holdings, but we have a roof over our heads, now. If we clear out, we have no place to go. Therefore, we hope we shall be allowed to stay here, but what we desire to know is, what is to be clone with regard to the two bad seasons...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries. (19 Apr 1923)

Mr James Ede: I have gone very carefully into the matter. I know of one county council—[HON. MEMBERS: "Name! "]—I am prepared to give the name, but the' public interest would be better served, perhaps, if I communicated the name to the Minister. If it is challenged I am prepared to state it. [HON. MEMBERS: "Name! "J It is the Surrey County Council. On the Surrey County Council the finance committee...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries. (19 Apr 1923)

Mr James Ede: As one who has been actively engaged in this work since the War, I can assure the right hon. Gentleman that there are a good many men who feel that they have failed, but who are hanging on to the land, and I urge him to give them every opportunity to go on. There was no sadder sight on the battlefields of Europe than the English agricultural worker who fought side by side with the French and...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries. (19 Apr 1923)

Mr James Ede: I do not want to interrupt the right hon. Gentleman, but there are certain Clauses and Regulations that specifically apply to the children of smallholders, as distinct from agricultural labourers, and those were the Clauses to which I was alluding.

Orders of the Day — HOUSING, Etc. (No. 2) [MONEY]. (30 Apr 1923)

Mr James Ede: I had been hoping that while the Minister of Health was speaking we should have heard some indication that in framing the Bill he had discussed the problems of house building with some other representatives of local authorities than those represented on the Association of Municipal Corporations. It is obvious, from the discussion we have had to-day, that there is very considerable feeling...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wembley Stadium.: Irish Free State (Deportees). (2 May 1923)

Mr James Ede: 94. asked the Home Secretary if Miss Grace Lally was arrested at the request of the Free State Government; if he has any knowledge, except such request from the Free State, of any activity of Miss Lally against the Free State Government at any time since its establishment; and, if so, the nature of such activity?

Oral Answers to Questions — Wembley Stadium.: Irish Free State (Deportees). (2 May 1923)

Mr James Ede: 95. asked the Home Secretary if Mr. Charles Garrety, Mr. J. D. M'Cann, Miss Mary Finan, and Miss Kathleen Brooks were at any time interned in Mountjoy Prison; if so, at what date were they removed from that prison; and what are the reasons for their present internment in England instead of in Ireland?
