Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: Supposing there are £100,000,000 sterling of marks in the pool, it may not be possible to pay the whole of that hundred million sterling in pounds, francs and lira. Supposing that difficulty arises, are we, because of this scheme, entitled to take our whole proportion and leave the rest in marks, or shall we only be able to take that proportion provided at the same time a similar amount is...

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: I beg to move, That leave be given to bring in a Bill to amend the Law relating to the conveyance of persons to or from the poll, and for purposes connected therewith.

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Lower Deck Grievances. (19 Mar 1925)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: I beg to move, to leave out from the word "That" to the end of the Question, and to add instead thereof the words in the interests of efficiency in the Navy and a contented personnel on the Lower Beck, every facility should be afforded for the rectification of grievances, welfare committees should be encouraged and granted greater freedom of expression, and the opportunity of ultimate high...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Lower Deck Grievances. (19 Mar 1925)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: If I am wrong, let me put it in this way. The rights of the dependants of officers to pensions are very much higher than those of the men. and a claim can be made on behalf of an officer which would not be entertained on behalf of a seaman. The seamen ask that their dependants shall be looked after by the country which enjoys their services in the same way in which officers' dependants are...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Lower Deck Grievances. (19 Mar 1925)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: This is not really a party question, and I hope Members on all sides of the House, to whatever party they belong, will support the rights of the men in the Navy. There is another small matter I should like to mention, but I hesitate to do so in the presence of the hon. Member for Plymouth (Viscountess Astor). It is the question of rum ration. It is not a question of the giving or withholding...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Lower Deck Grievances. (19 Mar 1925)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: One word on the question of promotion. I am sure that we cannot go on under the old inefficient method of promotion, and I suggest that there should be a ladder from the lowest to the highest, and that it may take something of this form. A man of good character, who has served for five years, should become eligible for an examination, and, if he proves himself capable and efficient in that...

Orders of the Day — China Indemnity (Application) Bill.: Robert Oulagi (Sentence). (3 Mar 1925)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: I agree with what my hon. Friend has just said in regard to this case. I am sure the Under-Secretary of State for the Home Department will appreciate the fact that those who are making this appeal to him are every bit as much horrified by the crime perpetrated as anyone can be in any part of the House, but our feeling is that in the peculiar abnormality which this lad has shown and which if...
