Orders of the Day — Army and Air Force (Annual) Bill.: Clause 4. — (Abolition of death penalty in certain cases.) (1 Apr 1925)

Captain Robert Gee: That does not alter the point I am making, that we are told now by the Mover of the Amendment that the whole of the hon. Members on the benches above the Gangway are solid on this matter. In that case, the party opposite have been converted since last year's debate. I shall have a little more respect for the hon. Member's statement when I hear some Member on the Front Bench opposite say that...

Orders of the Day — Army and Air Force (Annual) Bill.: Clause 4. — (Abolition of death penalty in certain cases.) (1 Apr 1925)

Captain Robert Gee: I do not think the hon. Member really grasps what I said. I referred to a private soldier who was found sleeping at his post. That is what the hon. Member mentioned. The soldier could have been sentenced to death, but he was not. On the other hand, an officer who was found drunk on an outpost, was tried and cashiered. My contention is that the hon. Member could scarcely have selected a worse...

Captain Robert Gee: I beg to second the Motion. In doing so, I think I shall be acting in accordance with the wishes of the House if I congratulate the hon. and gallant Member for Nuneaton (Captain A Hope) on the very able way in which he has moved the Motion.

Orders of the Day — Civil Services Supplementary Estimates, 1924–25.: Blackmail. (10 Mar 1925)

Orders of the Day — Civil Services Supplementary Estimates, 1924–25.: Blackmail. (10 Mar 1925)

Gentleman, but I think he is rather stressing the point too much, perhaps, that the particular effect of this Resolution is to enable all cases to be tried in camera. It is not that they shall he, but it is to enable them to be so heard. [HON. MEMBERS: "All cases."]

Orders of the Day — Supply (5 Mar 1925)

On the other side of the House we have supporters of the League of Nations, and on this side of the House there is a mixed gathering whether for the League of Nations or the Protocol, but when we come to look for the putative fathers of the League of Nations we find that they have shown their respect for their child...
