Orders of the Day — Supply.: Office of Works and Public Buildings. (15 Feb 1926)

He said it had been anticipated that they would use the services of the...

Supply.: Board of Trade. (16 Feb 1926)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: Then how can it be anticipating the year 1926–27? I should like a little explanation of that. I understand it is a matter of sending out circulars in order to get information, and I think it must have been a case of sending out reminders, otherwise I do not see how it is to be explained. That is the first point I should like to have a little clearer, because it is a matter of the...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Department of Overseas Trade (Development and Intelligence). (17 Feb 1926)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: I do not propose to discuss the question of the British Industries Fair. When I visited it the other day I found it a very interesting exhibition.

Under the Item G 1, we are asked to vote additional money to cover the...

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: The right hon. Member for Antrim (Captain Craig) has asked the Committee to view sympathetically the position of Northern Ireland in this matter, and I should like to say to him that this Committee does view the position of Northern Ireland sympathetically.

If before the end of four years the position of Northern Ireland recovers itself, and our position does not, and we continue to make up the deficiency in our own fund, as we do to-day by loan, shall we become eligible for any contribution from Northern Ireland, in view of the fact that, according to the White Paper, it is only when we make a...

Orders of the Day — Unemployment Insurance (Northern Ireland Agreement) [Money]. (22 Feb 1926)
