Orders of the Day — Adoption of Children Bill. (26 Feb 1926)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: The Home Secretary has given his blessing to this Bill, and I gather from what he said, and subsequent remarks of hon. Gentlemen, that the Government were going to do their very best to allow time later, when the Bill emerges from Committee, to push it into law. I think we are glad to say, at least I certainly am, that on the general principles of the Bill we are in hearty sympathy. It does...

Oral Answers to Questions — Government Departments.: China (Anti-British Strike and Boycott). (1 Mar 1926)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: 89. asked the Home Secretary how many orders have been issued to firms allowing women and youths to work on a system of two shifts in the day; and, in view of the fact that such orders were originated in wartime as an emergency action, what is the policy of the Home Office in the matter?

Class Ii.: Board of Control, England. (1 Mar 1926)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: I want to say one word with regard to the revised form in which these Estimates appear. The Committee will remember that, acting on your suggestion, the Minister withdrew the Vote dealing with the Harnett v. Bond case. As the Estimate is presented to us, as the Minister has already told us, it has simply had that particular item knocked off before it comes to our cognisance to-night, but what...

Class Ii.: Board of Control, England. (1 Mar 1926)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: The point I am endeavouring to make is this. Here is a sum of money which the Department has actually spent.

Class Ii.: Board of Control, England. (1 Mar 1926)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: It is not in this Vote, but I am sure it must be in order to draw attention to the fact that the Department has spent this money and is not coming to ask—

Class Ii.: Board of Control, England. (1 Mar 1926)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: I will put my remark in the form of a question. I should like to know from the Minister whether this money has been spent? If it has not been spent, what are the facts which enable it to be excluded from this revised Estimate?

Oral Answers to Questions — Education.: Playing Fields. (4 Mar 1926)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: 38. asked the President of the Board of Education whether, since in pursuance of Memorandum 44, he has deterred the Norwich education authority from purchasing a new playing field necessary for elementary school children, he will reconsider his attitude in view of the fact that if the purchase is not effected at once it will become impossible, as the land is being sold for building purposes?

League of Nations.: Sir a. Chamberlain's Statement. (4 Mar 1926)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: I rise with considerable anxiety to take part in this very important Debate. I realise fully, as a junior Member of this House, the very grave danger of letting slip some unfortunate word which may not bring oil to the troubled waters, but may injure irrevocably the situation not only in this country, but all over the world. I have no intention of uttering any word which might possibly have...

Oral Answers to Questions — India.: Fiji (Indian Children). (8 Mar 1926)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: 8. asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether the facilities for education of Indian children in Fiji are available for girls as well as boys; and whether, on the Commission which he is appointing to consider the question, it is proposed to include any women members?

Oral Answers to Questions — China.: Child Labour Regulations, Shanghai. (8 Mar 1926)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: 60. asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he has any information to give relating to the recent strike at Shanghai; and whether there is any prospect of procuring the passage of the factory regulations recommended by the Child Labour Commission in that city which have hitherto been held up owing to the failure to obtain a quorum of the ratepayers?

Orders of the Day — Unemployment Insurance (Northern Ireland Agreement) Bill. (9 Mar 1926)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: I am sorry for some reasons, that we have not had the pleasure of an explanation by the Chancellor of the Exchequer of the meaning of this Bill. I hope he intends to give us a full and careful reply. It is always a great pleasure to listen to the Chancellor of the Exchequer explaining any Measure or proposal, and it is never more so than when he is not fully seized of the facts of the...

Clause 1. — (Confirmation of scheduled Agreement.) (10 Mar 1926)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: I beg to move, in page 1, line 17, after the word "confirmed," to insert the words subject to the modification that the agreement shall not operate in any financial year covered by the agreement in which a surplus in both Unemployment Funds of Great Britain and Northern Ireland is ascertained. I do not think the Amendment is in any sense incompatible with the Agreement. It is only a very...

Clause 1. — (Confirmation of scheduled Agreement.) (10 Mar 1926)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: I do not see in the Amendment anything that is fundamentally inconsistent with the principle of the Agreement. It only seeks to make a very small modification which I think the Committee in the main will approve of.

Clause 1. — (Confirmation of scheduled Agreement.) (10 Mar 1926)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: As I was saying before these points of order were raised, the object of this Amendment is to confine the operation of the Agreement to those years to which I am sure that the general opinion of this House desires to see it confined. The Agreement as it stands provides a great deal more than is generally supposed. We have been asked to sanction certain payments for this year and succeeding...

Clause 1. — (Confirmation of scheduled Agreement.) (10 Mar 1926)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: Even under the Bill as it stands have we an assurance? Is it not true that if the deficiency on the Irish Fund still remains when our deficiency has been wiped out, there will still be that inequality which the right hon. Gentleman says this Agreement will avoid?

Oral Answers to Questions — Civil Services (Estimates). (16 Mar 1926)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: 20. asked the Home Secretary whether he has now had replies from the Dominions with regard to the Resolution passed in this House on the 18th February, 1925, with regard to the nationality of married women; and whether he will inform the House as to their contents?

Oral Answers to Questions — Police.: Married Women (Nationality). (18 Mar 1926)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: Seeing that a very considerable time has elapsed, can the right hon. Gentleman give us any hope that he will do what he can to accelerate the reply on this matter?

Oral Answers to Questions — India.: Palestine (Civil Service Salaries). (22 Mar 1926)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: 10. asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies why the rule which previously existed in the Palestinian Civil Service that the office or capacity of the official should determine the rate of payment and that men and women should be paid equally for the same work has now been departed from, so that a different scale of salaries is being paid as between men and women in the junior service?
