Orders of the Day — Ouse Drainage Bill. (16 Jun 1927)

Sir Charles Murchison: I want to intervene for a moment or two because this matter concerns very closely a large number of my constituents—a great deal more closely than most of them care about. I agree that the Government, having appointed a Royal Commission to inquire into the whole question of the law concerning land drainage in England and Wales might well have waited until it had reported before bringing in...

Orders of the Day — Unemployment Insurance. (9 Mar 1925)

Sir Charles Murchison: I should, for a few minutes, just like to intervene, because it struck me during that part of this Debate that T have been able to hear that this question of unemployment has been regarded far too much as a party question. After all, it is a national question. If one looks back to what the last Government did one may say that it did not seem find a very satisfactory solution of the problem....

Orders of the Day — Military Expenditure and Disarmament. (23 Jul 1923)

Sir Charles Murchison: I should like to call attention to one or two aspects of the matter which I think have not yet been touched upon. The Resolution speaks of the enormous and growing expenditure on the Naval and Air Forces. The hon. Member who has just sat down spoke of a figure of £60,000,000. I think we are apt to forget, when we compare these figures with pre-War figures, that the purchasing power of the...

Orders of the Day — Railways Bill. (26 May 1921)

Sir Charles Murchison: I want to intervene in this Debate to protest against the position in which Hull will be left if the provisions of this Bill are carried out as they stand, especially in regard to the grouping arrangement. It seems to me that Hull will be the only port in England which has in the past had some benefit from a certain amount of competition, and which will now lose that benefit. Other ports in...

Sir Charles Murchison: I wish in a very few sentences to support the Resolution which has been so fully placed before the House by the mover and the seconder, and I hope that the Government will see their way to remedy this very real and legitimate grievance of a large number of men throughout the country. It is right that they should remove this grievance if they can, and they can do so by the expenditure of a...

Orders of the Day — Aliens Restriction Bill: Clause 9. — (Admission of Former Enemy Aliens.) (13 Nov 1919)

Sir Charles Murchison: I beg to move, in Sub-section (1), to leave out the word "two," and to insert instead thereof the word "seven." It is needless to remind the right hon. Gentleman of the Election pledges of Ministers and of the fact that feeling in the country is very strong on this subject. In Clause 8 the Government practically say I that any enemy alien, whose affairs have I been thoroughly looked into and...
