Irish Free State (Confirmation of Agreement) Bill. (15 Jul 1929)

Mr Arthur Ponsonby: Until the Board, which will deal with these claims, is set up cases will be held up. They will not have time to deal with the subsequent stages of the Bill in the Irish Free State Parliament until the autumn.

Irish Free State (Confirmation of Agreement) Bill. (15 Jul 1929)

Mr Arthur Ponsonby: That is perfectly true. Those cases will not have to wait. I think I was right in saying that there were 500 cases outstanding. I do not see that the letter which the hon. and gallant Gentleman said that he had received from one of the claimants really alters the case at all. There has been delay on account of the necessity of setting up different procedure for these special cases. That delay...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Disarmament. (28 Feb 1929)

Mr Arthur Ponsonby: I should not have intervened in this Debate had it not been for the disappointment we feel with the speech of the Financial Secretary. I was glad when I knew that he was going to respond to this Amendment, because, combined with his great efficiency in his office, he has a profound knowledge of foreign affairs, and has expressed himself on the question of disarmament on more than one occasion...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Treasury and Subordinate Departments. (15 Feb 1929)

Mr Arthur Ponsonby: I hope the Financial Secretary to the Treasury is going to reply, because this is rather a grave constitutional question, that the Government should be guilty of what is really a species of political corruption in giving special payment to a Noble Lord to do what they consider to be an ex tremely difficult bit of work for them. In addition to the salaried Lords, there are about 600 Peers who...

Oral Answers to Questions — Egypt (Capitulations). (12 Dec 1928)

Mr Arthur Ponsonby: 4. asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the reply of His Majesty's Government to the Government of Egypt, sent on the 12th ultimo, was an official reply to the formal request of that Government for the modification of the capitulatory regime; and whether the assent of His Majesty's Government was unqualified or was contingent on the acceptance by the Egyptian Government of...

Orders of the Day — Superannuation (Diplomatic Service) Bill. (23 Nov 1928)

Mr Arthur Ponsonby: It would have helped the Debate very much if we had all these figures before us. Also, I think, the hon. Gentleman has not given to the House quite fully what the particular anomaly is it is sought to get rid of by this Bill. He has referred to the question of amalgamation, but many Members of this House do not know exactly what he is talking about, and that question ought to be made very...
