Orders of the Day — Ministry of Ways and Communications Bill.: Clause 8. — (Power to Establish Transport Services.) (2 Jul 1919)

Mr Marshall Stevens: I think the House has now been made aware of the difficulties of the Committee upstairs upon this matter and all matters of expenditure. The Minister-designate has been in a position for the last nine months to consider this and the other questions which are before the Ministry, but with the exception of railway wagons where, as will be seen in the next Clause he can commit the country to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Railway Administration.: Rolling Stock. (7 Jul 1919)

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Ways and Communications Bill.: Clause 8. — (Power to Establish Transport Services.) (7 Jul 1919)

Mr Marshall Stevens: I beg to second the Amendment. The whole system of this country desires an appeal, and it is not only fair, but necessary, chat such provisions should apply to the Ministry of Ways and Communications as those which apply to any statutory undertaking. All that is asked here is that the Minister, if he provides a service, should provide all such due and reasonable facilities for the receiving...

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Ways and Communications Bill.: Clause 10. — (Power As To Railway Wagons.) (7 Jul 1919)

Mr Marshall Stevens: I desire to move, in Sub-section (1), after the word "purchase" ["Minister to purchase"], to insert the words seventy thousand. This is an entirely separate Section of the Bill, and provides for an expenditure of £70,000,000, or almost that amount. That is notwithstanding the fact that we were promised on Second Reading, and afterwards on the Money Resolution, that Orders in Council should...

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Ways and Communications Bill.: Clause 10. — (Power As To Railway Wagons.) (7 Jul 1919)

Mr Marshall Stevens: I beg to second the Amendment. It is only a question of finding a Court of appeal from the Ministry. If you go to other countries where the railways are nationalised, you always find there a Court of appeal from the Government, and also where the railways are privately owned. In our case, for instance, there are the Railway and Canal Commissioners. In the United States they have the...

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Ways and Communications Bill.: Clause 11. — (Power to Discharge Capital Liabilities by Issue of Stock.) (7 Jul 1919)

Mr Marshall Stevens: Supplementing what my hon. Friend has just said, the very lucid statement of the right hon. Gentleman to-night has simplified the whole position. I agree almost entirely with what he said. Under this Bill practically all the wagons are to be purchased, and we are face to face with an expenditure in cash of £70,000,000 for these wagons. I say in cash, because we were promised upstairs that in...

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Ways and Communications Bill (10 Jul 1919)

Mr Marshall Stevens: No Member of this House can be more anxious than myself upon the question of nationalisation, but surely, if we can accept any statement in this House, we must for the purposes of this Bill—and I say only for the purposes of this Bill—accept the statement of the Leader of the House that neither he nor the Government nor the individual heads of the Government are committed to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport Workers' Battalions. (5 Aug 1919)

Mr Marshall Stevens: 83. asked what civilian work the transport workers' battalions, recently disbanded, performed under the direction of the Port and Transit Executive Committee; whether they were solely used to supplement proved deficiencies in civilian labour, or whether they were used to compete with civilian labour; what disputes with labour arose through their employment; what number of soldiers formed the...
