Marquess of Titchfield: Because of the war.
Marquess of Titchfield: Surely that is "house to house."
Marquess of Titchfield: Suppose a Colony did not want to be mandated but wanted to remain under the Union Jack. What would the hon. Member do then?
Marquess of Titchfield: It is not there yet.
Marquess of Titchfield: Has compensation been paid by the Republican Government for losses to British trade?
Marquess of Titchfield: I beg to move, as an Amendment to the proposed new Clause, in line 2, after "thereby," to insert: or in land situate below, adjoining, or near to coal. This Amendment is related to the two following Amendments in my name—in line 5, to leave out "of workings" and to insert: sections, records, particulars, or other documents relating to the situation, condition, management, or working, and,...
Marquess of Titchfield: asked the Prime Minister whether British interests are being carried on in areas of Spain occupied by the Government and insurgent forces respectively; and whether any have been confiscated without compensation?
Marquess of Titchfield: I only wanted to help.
Marquess of Titchfield: I would like to remind the hon. Member that the Bill is not through yet.
Marquess of Titchfield: I would not interrupt my hon. and learned Friend. I welcome every speech which he makes, because it is always of so much use to us on this side.
Marquess of Titchfield: I have been rather wondering, Mr. Speaker, whether it would be right and proper for me to try to catch your eye, because, as many hon. Members know, I am directly financially interested in this Bill. But, as this Bill is a matter of general importance, and as I do not intend to take part in the Division to-morrow night, I feel that hon. Members will agree with me in thinking that it is right...
Marquess of Titchfield: I should like to know what the co-operative societies are going to do with their workers in the matter of the cost of living.
Marquess of Titchfield: What about the Russians?
Marquess of Titchfield: I should like to say a word on a new Clause that was moved by my Noble Friend, Lord Hastings, in another place when this Bill was going through the Report stage. The point I want to make is that a surface owner who has no proprietary interest in coal cannot, I understand, register under this Bill. This individual may have his rights in the surface incorrectly stated through the action of the...
Marquess of Titchfield: I voted for it, as did a great many hon. Members on this side of the Committee.
Marquess of Titchfield: Can the right hon. Gentleman say whether it is proposed to introduce the legislation before or after the Recess?
Marquess of Titchfield: I should like to support the Amendment, and I can do so in two sentences. If my right hon. Friend does not accept it, the Clause may adversely affect such trades as tanning, light leather dressing, glue, gelatine, dripping, soap, fertilisers, catgut and other useful commodities. We on this side of the House believe in the vital principle that subsidised industries should not adversely affect...
Marquess of Titchfield: If the hon. Member wishes to know the reason we cannot fix a standard price, it is this: one cannot tell what the weather will be like during the next six months. If the hon. Member could guarantee that the weather would be hot, or warm, or cold, or up to a certain temperature, it would be possible to do it, but none of us in the House can foretell what the weather will be during the next six...
Marquess of Titchfield: Surely we should not put the director of a railway company into the office of Minister of Transport?
Marquess of Titchfield: They are all invalids in Bournemouth.
