Orders of the Day — Administration of Justice [Salary, etc.]. (7 Apr 1925)

Mr John Rawlinson: This Resolution is to provide for the appointment of an additional Judge for the Probate, Divorce and Admiralty Division. We have three Judges now in that Court, and if you appoint a new Judge he will probably not have had much practice in the Admiralty Division, and scarcely any practice in the Divorce Court. You ultimately get the ridiculous position of three Judges taking Admiralty work,...

Orders of the Day — ADMINISTRATION OF JUSTICE BILL [Lords]. (30 Mar 1925)

Mr John Rawlinson: I do not for one moment oppose this Bill, but I should like to call the attention of the House to three points. The first is the Clause which gives power to the Lord Chief Justice, in consultation with the Lord Chancellor, to say, if there is not a substantial amount of business for a particular circuit court, that the assize shall not be held there. I hope my right hon. Friend will see his...

Orders of the Day — Irish Free State (Confirmation of Agreement) Bill.: Clause 1. — (Confirmation of Agreement.) (2 Oct 1924)

Mr John Rawlinson: I would like to add one or two words in support of my hon. and learned Friend's Amendment. Last night, rightly or wrongly, we altered the Treaty, and the reason we did it—of course, we must abide by the decision of the House—was that it was alleged that those who signed the Treaty did not fully understand the effect of what they had signed. Do not let us make the same mistake again now....

Orders of the Day — Irish Free State (Confirmation of Agreement) Bill.: Clause 1. — (Confirmation of Agreement.) (2 Oct 1924)

Mr John Rawlinson: You have turned what was otherwise an optional arbitration into a compulsory arbitration.

Orders of the Day — Irish Free State (Confirma Tion of Agreement) Bill.: Prime Minister's Statement. (30 Sep 1924)

Mr John Rawlinson: I desire to ask the House to look at this very important question from a business point of view. We are here asked by a Bill to alter a Treaty. The last speaker said that he is content with the Treaty, but that cannot be quite correct, because, if they were content with it as it is, there would be no necessity for this Bill at all. We are proposing by this Bill to amend the Treaty, because it...

Orders of the Day — Irish Free State (Confirma Tion of Agreement) Bill.: Prime Minister's Statement. (30 Sep 1924)

Mr John Rawlinson: At the present moment I am dealing with what was said By the right hon. Gentleman the Member for Ross and Cromarty (Mr. Macpherson).

Orders of the Day — Irish Free State (Confirma Tion of Agreement) Bill.: Prime Minister's Statement. (30 Sep 1924)

Mr John Rawlinson: I will deal with that in a moment. The hon. Member is a lawyer also, and he cannot get out of it. We are all in the same boat, and he knows that his interruption is quite irrelevant, but I will deal with it. He knows that it is a written document, and that, if it has to be altered, it must be done with very great care.

Orders of the Day — Irish Free State (Confirma Tion of Agreement) Bill.: Prime Minister's Statement. (30 Sep 1924)

Mr John Rawlinson: The hon. Member is right. I am not attempting to defend his then leaders.

Orders of the Day — Irish Free State (Confirma Tion of Agreement) Bill.: Prime Minister's Statement. (30 Sep 1924)

Mr John Rawlinson: I am dealing with the matter from an absolutely commonsense point of view. We are dealing here with a thing which looks probable, and you have the evidence of the late Chief Secretary for Ireland, who says that was his view all the way through. In the face of that are you really going to take the responsibility of altering the contract when you had it down in writing? There is no doubt about...

Orders of the Day — Consolidated Fund (Appropriation) Bill.: Anglo-Soviet Treaty. (7 Aug 1924)

Mr John Rawlinson: Surely the House is bound by its decision taken yesterday? It was pointed out plainly that by Members occupying the House until half-past one the result would be that there would be only two hours for the discussion of ordinary matters on the Motion for Adjournment. The House, after hearing that, decided to support the Government and made this arrangement whereby only two hours would be...

Orders of the Day — Adjournment of the House (Summer). (7 Aug 1924)

Mr John Rawlinson: This was the very subject under discussion yesterday, and I notice from the Division list that the last speaker voted against what is now suggested. It is impossible to reopen a matter which was divided upon yesterday with full understanding, because, amongst others I pointed out very firmly that the arrangements suggested would leave only about two hours for debate on the adjournment motion....

Orders of the Day — Adjournment of the House (Summer). (7 Aug 1924)

Mr John Rawlinson: Let me read from the OFFICIAL REPORT of yesterday's Debate: .…The Measures to be taken to-morrow may take two or three hours with the result that the Motion for the Adjournment may not be reached until three or four o'clock in the afternoon. There will remain only about one-and-a-half hours for discussing that Motion, because at five o'clock the Speaker has to leave the Chair without...

Orders of the Day — Adjournment of the House (Summer). (7 Aug 1924)

Mr John Rawlinson: The hon. Member can always trust any statement made by me.

Business of the House. (6 Aug 1924)

Mr John Rawlinson: I think some attention should be paid to this matter by the Government. This proposal goes further than any previous Resolution, and it is a vital thing that private Members should be able to bring up matters on the Motion for the Adjournment. I have never brought up matters on the Adjournment myself ever since I have been a Member of the House, but it is undoubtedly a very valuable right to...

Orders of the Day — Housing (Financial Provisions) Bill.: Clause 3. — (Special conditions.) (6 Aug 1924)

Mr John Rawlinson: All you can do, Sir, is to advise or warn the House of the matter of privilege. It is for the House to deal with it. That is the way it is always done. The question is whether you agree or disagree.

Orders of the Day — Housing (Financial Provisions) Bill.: Clause 3. — (Special conditions.) (6 Aug 1924)

Mr John Rawlinson: On that occasion the Speaker distinctly put it in the form in which you, Sir, have put it to-day. It is invariably put in that form when it is a question of privilege. It is quite a different thing if it is under the Parliament Act.

Orders of the Day — NATIONAL HEALTH INSURANCE BILL [Lords]. (1 Aug 1924)

Mr John Rawlinson: This is a Bill which was introduced in the House of Lords. It is a Bill of 135 Clauses, a very heavy Bill indeed. I understand it was referred to the Joint Committee on Consolidation Bills. They introduced some hundred or more Amendments, and the Bill was ordered to be reprinted. So far as I am aware, it has never been before this House at all. The Bill has not been reprinted, there is no...

Orders of the Day — NATIONAL HEALTH INSURANCE BILL [Lords]. (1 Aug 1924)

Mr John Rawlinson: The order for printing was made on 9th July, and it is now August. Such a Bill ought to be printed as early as possible.

Orders of the Day — Motor Car Races Bill. (1 Aug 1924)

Mr John Rawlinson: Motor racing on Sunday is expressly forbidden in this Bill, so the point of the hon. Member for Dartford (Mr. Mills) is already met. I do not think, however, that it is very desirable to give power for the public highways to be used for motor races. The object of the highways is that people should be able to pass and repass upon them for the purpose of going to and from particular places, and...

Orders of the Day — Motor Car Races Bill. (1 Aug 1924)

Mr John Rawlinson: I beg to move, to leave out the word "now," and, at the end of the Question, to add the words, "upon this day three months."
