Orders of the Day — Communist Prosecution.: Vote of Censure Proposed. (1 Dec 1925)

Mr John Grace: I ask the indulgence of the House because I rise to address it for the. first time. As a lawyer, I feel there is no-one in the House who has a greater respect for the right of free speech than I have, and I think this Debate is distinguishable from all other Debates I have heard in that in all quarters of the House we seem to agree despite our other differences, that there should be a full...

Orders of the Day — Communist Prosecution.: Vote of Censure Proposed. (1 Dec 1925)

Mr John Grace: Most of them. They have gone about telling the working man that he has been robbed of the fruits of his labour, and what is the natural result of saying that? These men are going to turn round and say: "We are going to take it from the people who have deprived us, by force, and give them no kind of compensation whatsoever." That is the natural corollary of all that foolish teaching, and the...

It is the peasant of Russia who is saving Russia from complete ruin to-day. If Russia ever comes back to a...

Boards of Guardians (Default) Act. (29 Mar 1927)

Mr John Grace: I beg to second the Amendment. I think it will be agreed that local government becomes impossible unless those who govern and those who are governed are prepared to act honestly.

Boards of Guardians (Default) Act. (29 Mar 1927)

Mr John Grace: We are charged by the Resolution which is now before us with acting in a partisan and bureaucratic manner.

Boards of Guardians (Default) Act. (29 Mar 1927)

Mr John Grace: It is about two-thirds of the way down on page 10 of the Report. What did the "Daily Herald" say about that. This is the defence set out in the "Daily Herald" by their advisers: Miners in arrears would not, of course, receive benefits from the fund, and the board did not consider it proper to pay the full scale to people who, through their own neglect, were unable to claim from their trade...

Boards of Guardians (Default) Act. (29 Mar 1927)

Mr John Grace: The White Paper showed that the average weekly money payments started at over £1,000 a week, and came down to about £800 a week. What does the "Daily Herald" report say about this? It says: What an amusing experience eminent K.C. 's must have had, considering the case of recipients of Poor Law relief giving their mites to representatives of the board who were also out of work. That, I...

Class Viii.: Ministry of Pensions. (13 Jul 1927)

Mr John Grace: The right hon. Member for West Bromwich (Mr. F. Roberts), who spoke from the Front Opposition Bench, said he desired to approach the question of pensions from a non-party point of view. I certainly think he did so, and I am quite sure that it is the desire of every Member of this House to avoid making party capital out of the sufferings of ex-service men, but I do not feel quite so confident...

Class Viii.: Ministry of Pensions. (13 Jul 1927)

Mr John Grace: I am quite sure that anybody reading that would assume that this man was suffering from some real grievance. I believe that last year no fewer than 10,000 artificial limbs were supplied to ex-service men, and that the great bulk of these were renewals of limbs previously supplied. I would like to ask the Minister if he has any record of this case, whether he knows the name of the man referred...
