Lieut-Colonel George Woodwark: The Prime Minister was in the House ten seconds ago and has now left.

Orders of the Day — Agricultural Wages Bill.: New Schedule. (28 Jul 1924)

Lieut-Colonel George Woodwark: I would like to support this Bill on Third Reading, not because I am in any way satisfied with it, because I feel it will not be long before this House is asked to give further powers in connection with this legislation. In Committee, the same tactics were adopted of trying to rule the Amendment for the 30s. minimum out of order, and even after it was permitted—

Orders of the Day — Agricultural Wages Bill.: New Schedule. (28 Jul 1924)

Lieut-Colonel George Woodwark: Apart from the Chairman, I should like to say that the right hon. Gentleman for Ripon (Mr. E. Wood), in or before the discussion, tried to get us to compromise, and not raise the matter in the House, on Third Reading or Report. I was not surprised at your ruling to-day, after the Parliamentary Secretary told us what might happen after the Committee stage of last week. I must say this is my...

Orders of the Day — Agricultural Wages Bill.: New Schedule. (28 Jul 1924)

Lieut-Colonel George Woodwark: No, Sir; I do not wish to imply anything against you.

Orders of the Day — Agricultural Wages Bill.: New Schedule. (28 Jul 1924)

Orders of the Day — Agricultural Wages Bill.: New Schedule. (28 Jul 1924)

Lieut-Colonel George Woodwark: If what the hon. Member states be the fact, all I can say is there must be some misunderstanding, and I certainly withdraw. We have been accused as a party of being the cause of this compromise. I should like to say to the Minister, and to Members on the back benches, that before any suggestion was made of a compromise, there was no word of a minimum wage to be in the Bill as part of the...

Orders of the Day — Agricultural Wages Bill.: New Schedule. (28 Jul 1924)

Lieut-Colonel George Woodwark: I am sure the right hon. Gentleman must have remonstrated with his own leader when he made the observation as to the 30s. minimum wage at the last election. What we feel is very important is that the position of the worker should be known at once. It was stated in Committee—and I repeat it again—that there are 400,000 workers in receipt of a wage of less than 26s. a week, and in parts of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Boards of Guardians (Parental Powers). (28 May 1924)

Lieut-Colonel George Woodwark: 43. asked the Minister of Health whether he will consider the amendment of Section 1 (1) of the Poor Law Act, 1899, by substituting 21 years for 18 years as the limit of age of vesting of parental powers in the guardians where the guardians consider that, in the interests of the person with respect to whom a resolution of vesting is passed, the extension of the age limit is necessary or desirable?

Oral Answers to Questions — Poor Law Institutions (Insurance Benefits). (28 May 1924)

Lieut-Colonel George Woodwark: 44. asked the Minister of Health whether, in view of the increasing numbers of persons being admitted into the guardians' institutions who are entitled to receive benefits under the National Health Insurance Act, he will consider amending the Act authorising the guardians to claim an equitable amount of benefits in order that the money can be appropriated towards the cost of the patients'...

Oral Answers to Questions — Naval and Military Pensions and Grants.: Medical Officers (Instructions). (22 May 1924)

Lieut-Colonel George Woodwark: Free railway passes!

Civil Services and Revenue Departments Estimates, 1924–25.: Ministry of Labour. (22 May 1924)

Lieut-Colonel George Woodwark: The hon. Member is talking about the Labour party not being able to do much in a short time; but it did not take them long to introduce free railway passes.

Orders of the Day — UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE (No. 2) BILL. (20 May 1924)

Lieut-Colonel George Woodwark: I rise to say a word on behalf of the agricultural workers, as a representative of an agricultural division. I must say that the Minister has got out of dealing with the agricultural worker in a very easy way up to the present, and I feel that the House should have something more definite as to what he intends to do to bring about a scheme to include agricultural workers. As far as I can see,...

Orders of the Day — UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE (No. 2) BILL. (20 May 1924)

Lieut-Colonel George Woodwark: I should like to ask the Minister what steps he has taken to find out whether they desire to be included or not?

Orders of the Day — UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE (No. 2) BILL. (20 May 1924)

Lieut-Colonel George Woodwark: That only proves to me that the Minister, knowing that the agricultural worker was a difficult proposition and requires special treatment, thought the easiest way out of the difficulty was to politely shelve the whole matter and he has not offered to explain to us what steps he has taken to find out whether they wish to be included or not. The latest returns for male workers employed in the...

Orders of the Day — Trade Facilities Bill.: Clause 1. — (Increase of amount of loans which may be guaranteed under 11 & 12 Geo. 5. c. 65, and extension of period for giving of guarantees.) (12 Mar 1924)

Lieut-Colonel George Woodwark: I rise to support the Amendment so ably proposed by my hon. Friend the Member for the Isle of Ely (Mr. Mond). In doing so, I should like to draw the attention of the Financial Secretary to the Treasury to the fact that while £10,000,000 has been asked for agriculture, the point made against the Amendment is that there is no need to earmark that sum specially for this industry. After the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Russia.: Agricultural Wages Boards. (18 Feb 1924)

Lieut-Colonel George Woodwark: 101. asked the Minister of Agriculture what steps he is taking to restore the agricultural wages boards to secure a living wage for the agricultural workers?
