Unclassified Services.: Mothers' Pensions. (20 Feb 1924)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: I claim the indulgence of this House in rising for the first time to address it. I do so because this question of widows' pensions has been one to which for a very long time I have given great attention, and I was largely instrumental in bringing to this country Judge Neil who, as many hon. Members no doubt know, was the pioneer in the United States of the proposal to give widowed mothers...

Unclassified Services.: Mothers' Pensions. (20 Feb 1924)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: That is an altogether different matter. I say that it is up to all those Members who reject the means which some of us believe to be essential for putting straight the finances of this country, to show, not only by their vote to-night, but by their vote when this reform takes concrete shape, and requires taxation in order to carry it through—it is up to them to show that, even without a...

Orders of the Day — Finance Act, 1915 (New Import Duties). (13 May 1924)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: I can well understand the position of the hon. Member for Motherwell (Mr. Ferguson), just as I could understand the position of the hon. Member for Coventry (Mr. Purcell), who spoke earlier. They are thinking of industries in their own locality, and arguing for them. Exactly in the same way we have dockyard Members arguing for their own particular dockyard. One can understand them doing that,...

Orders of the Day — Finance Act, 1915 (New Import Duties). (13 May 1924)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: I am dealing with the arguments of hon. Members who say that, as a result of lower wages and depreciated currency on the Continent, we cannot compete. How docs the argument apply in regard to America, where there are higher wages paid, and the exchange is in the other direction? The hon. Member for Hythe (Sir P. Sassoon) told us that the motor industry was an infant industry. He asked us to...

ADMINISTRATION OF JUSTICE BILL [Lords]. (19 May 1924)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: As no one has, I think, risen on these benches to support the appeal made by the other benches for an enlargement of the right of trial by jury, I should just like to add my voice to those which have already been given. I know the strength of the feeling amongst hon. Members on these benches in the direction, and I feel particularly entitled to emphasise this, because the city of which I have...

Oral Answers to Questions — First Offender, Deal Quarter Sessions (Sentence). (5 Jun 1924)

Moneylenders (Restrictions). (2 Jul 1924)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: I rise to oppose the Bill. I am only going to make two or three very short observations in opposition to it. My reason for opposing it is not any tender, solicitude towards moneylenders as a class, but because, as I understand the Bill, it proposes to use the Post Office in order to deal partially with certain correspondence. I feel most strongly that the Post Office, as a national...
