Orders of the Day — Supply.: Home Office (16 Jul 1935)

I join with those who have pleaded for an alteration in the Amendment because...

It is perfectly idle for any Member of the Opposition to attempt to criticise the stand taken by the Government in recent years in connection with its work at...

Sessional Orders.: Debate on the Address. (3 Dec 1935)

Major Abraham Lyons: They pay no regard to the real problem and the proved facts, and when the Government announce a proposal to mobilise the forces of science in the interests of the women of this country they remain silent and refrain from any words of appreciation on what is being done.
