Class Ii.: Mines Department of the Board of Trade. (18 May 1922)

Sir Albert Parkinson: This Debate has taken a very interesting turn, and some very good practical suggestions have been made.

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Class Ii. (14 Apr 1921)

Are we to take it that an Estimate or a Supplementary Estimate was made for £150,000 and that only £17,000 was spent, and that the remainder is being carried...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Class Ii. (14 Apr 1921)

Sir Albert Parkinson: I think you will find that what I say is correct. What I wish to point out is, that if the building trade had provided all the men which the Cabinet asked for to give us the greater production necessary, then it might have been all right for the Office of Works to take up this scheme, but when all the people who are carrying out building are trying to do their best with an insufficient number...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Class Ii. (14 Apr 1921)

Sir Albert Parkinson: Then why should the Office of Works want to put on a bigger staff when there are so few men?

I would like to know exactly what is going to be the...

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Health (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill.: New Clause. — (Inspection of Dwelling-houses.) ( 8 Dec 1920)
