Mr Marshall Stevens: 28. asked the Prime Minister whether the Government has adopted any policy which will enable the production of commodities for export to be normally continued at prices which will at least provide a living wage to the workpeople without entailing loss to the employer or to the country; if so, what is that policy; and, if the Government have no such policy, has he formulated any plan of action...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce.: International Exchange. (18 Apr 1921)

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Additional Number of Land Forces. (18 Apr 1921)

Mr Marshall Stevens: I represent a constituency in which there are some thousands of coalminers. Speaking as a private Member, I have no doubt that both parties entered into the negotiations with the very best intentions. The items were necessarily very complicated, and as often happens with negotiations when they continue too long, they got stale. One is apt to dwell upon particular points on one side or the...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Additional Number of Land Forces. (18 Apr 1921)

Mr Marshall Stevens: That is only part of it. Question No. 45 to-day has been misunderstood, I gather from the Prime Minister's remark. That question did not relate only to exchanges.

Mr Marshall Stevens: I rise to make a suggestion. My task has been made very much easier by the speech which has been delivered by the hon. Member for Cardiff (Mr. Gould). I listened very patiently yesterday without being able to find any reference in any speech to what really is the main cause of this trouble, and of the troubles which are bound to arise out of it. Before making the suggestion which I desire to...

Orders of the Day — Unemployment Insurance Act (1920) Amendment Bill. (23 Feb 1921)

Mr Marshall Stevens: I only desire to refer to one point, which is rather important. There is no limitation, as far as I am aware, to the benefit paid to those who are obtaining partial employment. There must be many thousands at the present time who, although they are receiving far more than they received in pre-War times—in some cases, twice as much—are only working for half the week, and for the remainder...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: House Building. (1 Dec 1920)

Mr Marshall Stevens: It seems to me that this Committee is asked to commit the House of Commons to an entirely new policy, the policy of the nationalisation of the building trade, and without any reason, because the right hon. Gentleman has told us that he is only acting as agent for the local authorities, an agency which any firm of contractors would readily undertake under like circumstances. He has not told us...
