Mr Cecil Harmsworth: In that connection, as illustrations, no doubt some references to these events are advisable, but I strongly deprecate anything in the nature of a first-class or full-dress Debate on the deplorable events that have occurred on both sides in that part of the world. With reference to the remark which fell from my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Central Hull (Lieut. - Commander...

Whale Fisheries (Scotland) (Amendment) Bill.: Near East. (30 May 1922)

Mr Cecil Harmsworth: I prefer not to go into that, at the moment. On consideration I think that when hon. Members are disposed to visit their wrath, as is perhaps natural, on their own Government and then on the Allied Governments for the procrastination, delay, remissions, and carelessness that has taken place they ought to have in mind first of all the immense difficulties of conducting what I may call peace...

Mr Cecil Harmsworth: Bimbashi W. F. Cunliffe Cave, while returning home about 1.30 p.m. on 24th May, was shot dead in that quarter of Cairo where most of the Egyptian Ministries are situated.

Oral Answers to Questions — Peace Treaties.: Succession States (Economic Co-Operation). (25 May 1922)

Mr Cecil Harmsworth: Reference to the Articles mentioned will show that it is misleading to suggest that the Reparation Commission have power to enforce economic cooperation between the successor states. Such co-operation was, however, the object of the Conference held last October at Porto Rose, which His Majesty's Government did everything possible to encourage. I hope that the results of the Genoa Conference...

Oral Answers to Questions — Postal Censorship, Belgium. (24 May 1922)

Mr Cecil Harmsworth: The only action of the kind that has come to my notice is the censorship exercised by the Allied military authorities (including the Belgian) in occupied Germany for military reasons.

Oral Answers to Questions — Palestine.: Vatican Mission. (23 May 1922)

Mr Cecil Harmsworth: I will inquire about that matter.

Oral Answers to Questions — Ireland.: Constantinople (Allied Censorship). (22 May 1922)

Civil Services Supplementary Estimate, 1922–23.: Clause 1. — (Amendment of Schedule to 9 & 10 Geo. 5, s. 43.) (22 May 1922)

Mr Cecil Harmsworth: I think I can, in a few words, set at rest the doubts of the hon. and gallant Member for Stoke (Lieut.-Colonel J. Ward) and some other hon. Members who raised this question on the Second Reading of the Bill. I might take this opportunity of apologising to those hon. Members for my not having been present on that occasion. I should certainly have been in my place if I had known that anyone was...

Civil Services Supplementary Estimate, 1922–23.: Clause 1. — (Amendment of Schedule to 9 & 10 Geo. 5, s. 43.) (22 May 1922)

Easter Recess (Adjournment).: Near East. (12 Apr 1922)

Mr Cecil Harmsworth: I shall not attempt in the few words I shall say to the House to go into any matter that is in the slightest degrees controversial. It is not difficult for my hon. Friend the Member for the Scotland Division (Mr. O'Connor) to advocate with his usual eloquence and fervour the cause of Greece, nor for the hon. Member for East Nottingham (Sir J. D. Rees) to advocate, with wit, the cause of the...
