Lieut-Colonel Hon. Angus McDonnell: Will the hon. Member allow me—

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Ministry of Labour. (11 Feb 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Hon. Angus McDonnell: Can the hon. Member tell us who owned that land?

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Ministry of Labour. (11 Feb 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Hon. Angus McDonnell: The hon. Member who has just spoken seemed to infer that emigration was an effort on the part of this Government to transfer the unemployment problem from this country to our Dominions. That is not only a very inaccurate thing to say but a very dangerous thing, because such words are often copied into the Dominion newspapers. Although it is quite impossible for us to send anyone to Canada, by...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Ministry of Labour. (11 Feb 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Hon. Angus McDonnell: I have seen one or two of them. The man who is always looking to his shop master to tell him what to do, is not going to make a success. In Canada a man must he prepared to stand on his own feet entirely. When a man of that kind goes out, after having been carefully selected and trained, if he has his heart in the right place and is willing to work, he will get all the backing and help that...

Oral Answers to Questions — Empire Settlement. (7 Dec 1928)

Lieut-Colonel Hon. Angus McDonnell: (by Private Notice) asked the Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs whether he was now able to state what arrangements had been made to secure a reduction of the passage rates from this country to Canada with a view to facilitating the settlement of British emigrants in that country?

Oral Answers to Questions — Empire Settlement. (7 Dec 1928)

Lieut-Colonel Hon. Angus McDonnell: Does that affect the£2 passage rate for families going on to the land?

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Colonial Office. (13 Jul 1928)

Lieut-Colonel Hon. Angus McDonnell: I do not propose to follow the hon. Member for East Woolwich (Mr. Snell) in detail, except to say that there are many questions to be covered, and that I object very much to the short time that is given in this House to the discussion of Imperial questions which are so important. I rather want to deal with a more general question. I do not think that the people of this country at all, or,...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Colonial Office. (13 Jul 1928)

Lieut-Colonel Hon. Angus McDonnell: Certainly, I think that it comes very nearly to the same thing. Take the Crown Colonies since the days of Mr. Joseph Chamberlain. They are an entirely different proposition from what they were then. In those days the problem that was faced by the Colonial Secretary was almost entirely one of political administration. To-day the Secretary of State for the Colonies is really the head of some 20...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Colonial Office. (13 Jul 1928)

Lieut-Colonel Hon. Angus McDonnell: Yes. He is really responsible for everything. What this House must consider is how much money should we give him so that he can discharge his responsibilities. I believe that the vote for the Colonial Office at home is £144,000 for salaries and expenses, and if we exclude the Middle East—Iraq and Palestine which are not, practically speaking, Crown Colonies at all—we give him only...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Colonial Office. (13 Jul 1928)

Lieut-Colonel Hon. Angus McDonnell: Not quite, while the hon. Member and I are present. Somehow, we cannot get money for things about which there is no fight. We have to get publicity, and I would urge everyone in this House and everybody wherever possible to advertise the fact that we have this chain of shops, which we have inherited, all over the tropical world, as a market for our goods.

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Colonial Office. (13 Jul 1928)

Lieut-Colonel Hon. Angus McDonnell: When we talk about unemployment in this country everybody immediately turns to the question of migration to the Dominions. Migration to the Dominions is a difficult thing, because we have to make arrangements with the Governments in the Dominions. We do not need to have migration into our Crown Colonies. The population is there, but it needs safeguarding, and it can be safeguarded. The...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Colonial Office. (13 Jul 1928)

Lieut-Colonel Hon. Angus McDonnell: The only grounds on which reorganisation of the Colonial Office is ever refused is on the grounds of expense. What was the value of our exports last year to West Africa alone? Last year we exported to West Africa goods to the value of £16,000,000. It is perfectly fair to assume that a 10 per cent. profit was made on those £16,000,000 worth of exports, because that includes, not only...

Oral Answers to Questions — Empire Settlement (Canada). (23 Apr 1928)

Lieut-Colonel Hon. Angus McDonnell: Is it not the fact that the recent Regulations put into force are, contrary to the hopes of the Canadian Government, tending to slow up migration from this country to Canada?

Orders of the Day — Unemployment. (19 Dec 1927)

Lieut-Colonel Hon. Angus McDonnell: I want to associate myself with the remark made by the hon. Member opposite, also by the hon. Member for Attercliffe (Mr. Cecil Wilson), and the hon. Member for Chertsey (Sir P. Richardson), that unemployment should never be made a party affair, that it is a national question, and should be tackled in a national way. We have to stop accusing each other and endeavour to find the best plan for...

Orders of the Day — Trade Disputes and Trade Unions Bill. (23 Jun 1927)

Lieut-Colonel Hon. Angus McDonnell: I have listened to as much of these Debates as any other Member of the House, and it seems to me that a great deal of time has been taken up by arguments among lawyers, not as to the merits of the Bill, but as to the interpretation which lawyers in the future may put upon its wording. Hon. Members opposite have tried to convince the House and the country that their opposition to the Bill has...

Orders of the Day — Trade Disputes and Trade Unions Bill. (23 Jun 1927)

Lieut-Colonel Hon. Angus McDonnell: What I say is perfectly true. In spite of the fact that the trade union movement is definitely affiliated to the Labour party, as far as matters of political controversy are concerned, I do not believe that that party can speak for the majority of trade unionists. Trade unionists as a class are just the same as anybody else, and every Member of this House knows that 50 per cent. of the people...

Orders of the Day — Trade Disputes and Trade Unions Bill. (23 Jun 1927)

Lieut-Colonel Hon. Angus McDonnell: The other 50 per cent. is definitely anti-Socialist.

Orders of the Day — Trade Disputes and Trade Unions Bill. (23 Jun 1927)

Lieut-Colonel Hon. Angus McDonnell: I am willing to chance it but do not worry about that. The Bill only touches trade unionists, as distinct from Socialist trade unionists, on two points. One is the limitation which it places on the sympathetic strike and the other is the limitation on picketing. I do not want to say anything about picketing because everything that can be said about it has been said 100 times in these Debates...

Orders of the Day — Trade Disputes and Trade Unions Bill.: Clause 7. — (Restraint of application of funds of trade unions, etc., in contravention of Act.) (1 Jun 1927)

Lieut-Colonel Hon. Angus McDonnell: Can the hon. Member say whether the American Judges to whom he referred were Federal Judges, who are appointed, or State Judges, who are elected?

Orders of the Day — Trade Disputes and Trade Unions Bill.: Clause 7. — (Restraint of application of funds of trade unions, etc., in contravention of Act.) (1 Jun 1927)

Lieut-Colonel Hon. Angus McDonnell: I am perhaps one of the few Members of this House who has lived in Pike Country, Kentucky, and as I do not think this House is the right place in which to criticise the administration of justice in the United States, I would not like to compare the ordinary State or County Courts in the United States, where the county Judges are elected, with the Courts we have in this country at all. It...
