Debate on the Address. (6 Nov 1928)

Mr Alfred Jephcott: I beg to second the Motion. I have a privilege conferred on me that is not accorded to many men, especially men in my own social position, and I feel a pleasure in it, because if there is anything democratic in this country, it is illustrated in the action of this House. I am a humble follower of the ideal of progress in this country, and it is a pleasure to know that men of all social...

Orders of the Day — Trade Disputes and Trade Unions Bill.: Clause 4. — (Provisions as to political fund.) (25 May 1927)

Mr Alfred Jephcott: I suppose I am correct in assuming that under this Amendment we may discuss, a little more fully than has been permitted on the last two Amendments, the general question with regard to this Clause. If that be so, I should like to say that, if I have understood the last two hon. Members aright, their organisations have not had a political levy in the ordinary sense. The political levy has been...

Orders of the Day — Trade Disputes and Trade Unions Bill.: Clause 4. — (Provisions as to political fund.) (25 May 1927)

Mr Alfred Jephcott: I still think that I am correct in what I said, that the money, the political levy, is collected with other moneys, and according to the hon. Member for Shipley (Mr. Mackinder) after the contribution has been collected by his own organisation the political portion is taken out. Personally, I entirely oppose that principle. If you are going to have a political levy it should be one pure and...

Orders of the Day — Trade Disputes and Trade Unions Bill.: Clause 4. — (Provisions as to political fund.) (25 May 1927)

Mr Alfred Jephcott: So may I be permitted to put this point?

Orders of the Day — Trade Disputes and Trade Unions Bill.: Clause 4. — (Provisions as to political fund.) (25 May 1927)

Mr Alfred Jephcott: The hon. Member can be assured from me that I never shall take notice of what he says. The only point that I tried to make, and hon. Members opposite can see the humour of it, is that it is far better to get money out of the rich than out of the poor. I do not want to have to remind some hon. Members how they have lived out of the poor, unless they challenge me. My point with regard to this...

Orders of the Day — Trade Disputes and Trade Unions Bill.: Clause 4. — (Provisions as to political fund.) (25 May 1927)

Mr Alfred Jephcott: And I do better than you. I resent this pamphlet because it is an imputation on an honest man that he desires the oppression of men whom hon. Members represent. He does not. What he says and what I would say is that there is no objection to Labour having a political party. The Independent Labour party was nothing until it dragged in the trade unions. There is no objection to a political party...

Orders of the Day — Trade Disputes and Trade Unions Bill.: Clause 4. — (Provisions as to political fund.) (25 May 1927)

Mr Alfred Jephcott: I do not like to contradict or interrupt, but I did not leave them. They would not have me because I would not belong to them.

Orders of the Day — Trade Disputes and Trade Unions Bill. (5 May 1927)

Mr Alfred Jephcott: I want an opportunity to intervene for a few minutes to refer to a statement made by the Prime Minister yesterday. I think the right hon. Gentleman said that the hon. Member for Broxtowe (Mr. Spencer) was the only trade unionist who supported the Government on this question. I want to inform the Prime Minister that he is wrong, because I have been a trade unionist for over 45 years—a paying...

Orders of the Day — Trade Disputes and Trade Unions Bill. (5 May 1927)

Mr Alfred Jephcott: I did not say you.

Oral Answers to Questions — Munitions.: Iron Bedsteads. (3 Nov 1919)

Mr Alfred Jephcott: 39. asked the First Commissioner of Works whether he is aware that the Director of Supplies of His Majesty's Office of Works has invited offers to tender for 20,000 bedsteads for the Royal Air Force; that the execution of such a contract would be of great hindrance to the English bedstead trade owing to the present shortage of material and skilled labour; that, in consequence of the...
