Orders of the Day — Consolidated Fund (Appropriation) Bill.: Ex-Ranker Officers. (4 Aug 1924)

Mr Thomas Macnamara: I only intervene to ask the right hon.

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Ministry of Labour. (30 Jul 1924)

Mr Thomas Macnamara: The Committee has listened to a very interesting speech, which has manifestly made a profound impression upon hon. Members. I make no complaint of the many sound economic propositions as to the importance of foreign trade and so forth with which the right hon. Gentleman opened his remarks, and do not suppose anybody will complain of them. Indeed, so fascinating was a great deal that the...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Ministry of Labour. (30 Jul 1924)

Mr Thomas Macnamara: A lot have come in since then, but it has approved of 177 in four months. It has allocated £144,000 in grants, according to that Paper, in the four months. It is in the table.

MEMBERS: "No!"] Yes, certainly they have been...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Ministry of Labour. (30 Jul 1924)

Mr Thomas Macnamara: Well, I will make any comparison my right hon. Friend likes. I think his point was that the figures carried us beyond June. If that be so, I have nothing more to say.

Five hundred of these schemes have been...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Road and Bridge (February, 1924) Programme. (30 Jul 1924)

Mr Thomas Macnamara: The Minister will take part in the discussion later. It is a very simple point. Here you have a "Road and Bridge (February, 1924) Programme." Is that part of the scheme of which we have just heard, or is it a scheme involving an entirely new provision of money? I should be glad if it is. Whether it is or is not, has Parliament sanctioned this new Road and Bridge Programme, and has my right...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Road and Bridge (February, 1924) Programme. (30 Jul 1924)

Mr Thomas Macnamara: I did not ask for that. I am not pressing this out of pure partisanship. We are entitled to know the facts. What I am asking is whether that £13,500,000 covered any part of the Chancellor's statement to-day? Take the roads mentioned—the Liverpool-Manchester Road or the Edinburgh Road. May I take it that the Chancellor's statement is entirely outside anything now in existence or...
