Sir Gerald Strickland: Is it within the hon.

Class Vi.: Malta. (10 May 1927)

Sir Gerald Strickland: Delegations of Members of both Houses of this Parliament have recently visited various Dominions and there held conferences on matters of common interest, with a view to coming to an understanding thereupon in the interests of the Empire as a whole and in a manner agreeable to the overseas Parliaments.

Class Vi.: Malta. (10 May 1927)

Sir Gerald Strickland: If I may interrupt the, right hon. Gentleman, I would point out that this official is entirely independent of the Parliament of Malta. He is the nominee of the Colonial Office, whose officers he advises on various matters, and he is entirely responsible to the Colonial Secretary who is responsible to this Parliament.

Class Vi.: Malta. (10 May 1927)

Sir Gerald Strickland: So little is it incredible that similar conferences have been held in Australia at which both Houses of the overseas Parliaments have been present, and have sat together as in Malta with the British Parliamentary delegates. Similar conferences have been the subject of very favourable comment in the Press both here and in the Colonies. This system is developing the possibility of finding a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland.: Malta (MR. Mahaffy). ( 5 May 1927)

Sir Gerald Strickland: May I ask the reasons for which an official appointed by the Colonial Office should continue to receive the same pay after a notable diminution of his work; whether he is responsible for the legal complications from which my right hon. Friend has informed this House he is seeking a way out by endeavouring to draft a special reference before the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council; and,...

Orders of the Day — Married Women (Employment) Bill. (29 Apr 1927)

Sir Gerald Strickland: I venture to intervene in this Debate as a pensioned Civil Servant after 30 years' work, because I feel that the experience to be gained in that Service, and the sentiments of those who are working in that Service, may not receive the hearing which they deserve, by reason of the obvious unpopularity to be apprehended from any unvarnished statement of the case against this Bill. The Bill is...

Orders of the Day — King's Speech.: Debate on the Address. ( 9 Feb 1927)

Sir Gerald Strickland: I have much sympathy with the aspect of the trade union question brought before the House in a most interesting speech by the hon. Member for Dundee (Mr. Scrymgeour), but with some modifications. He has put before the House the world-wide aspect of that question, particularly in reference to communities where the British race is developing the resources of the workers, and he dealt...

Orders of the Day — King's Speech.: Debate on the Address. ( 9 Feb 1927)

Sir Gerald Strickland: I hope that the few remarks I have made will show that there are on this side of the House those of us who consider that the British Empire is so important that every organisation should be guided in useful channels and have sympathy with the recognition of the trade union movement. If, however, we are to gather lessons from the development of these movements elsewhere, and if we are to...
