Mr Charles White: When will the right hon. Gentleman be able to give some further information?
Mr Charles White: I have an Amendment down to leave out "one year's" and insert "two years'." Will that be ruled out also? It raises a new issue, that is, to increase the compensation.
Mr Charles White: I have two Amendments further down the Paper, but Mr. Speaker says I had better take part in the general discussion without moving them. My first Amendment was to increase the compensation for one year to two years' rent. My second was that in the case of a capricious eviction the minimum compensation should be the two years' rent. So far as compensation is payable at all, I support the Bill,...
Mr Charles White: Hear, hear.

Mr Charles White: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the man cannot claim benefit under the Compensation Act because now, owing to the higher wages, he is getting more than he was prior to enlistment, though he is still suffering?
Mr Charles White: But he was not only trained in this work, but he was trained as a soldier and drilled in all the other departments?
Mr Charles White: 6. asked the Minister of Pensions whether he will consider and recommend an increase of pension to John Lawman, of Keswick Cottage, Hensley, near Matlock, who first enlisted in November, 1902, in the Duke of Cornwall's Light Infantry, in which he served 10 years, 240 days, and who lost an eye in 1911 at Bloemfontein by the accidental explosion of a shell, being discharged from the Army in...
Mr Charles White: In supporting this Motion I want, if I may, to approach it from a personal standpoint. I did not come to Parliament to make money; I have always been a poor man. I started work at ten years of age at 1s. per week. I never lived in anything but a cottage. I have at the present moment no social ambitions or aspirations. I never asked for an increase of salary, as has been suggested by the hon....
Mr Charles White: I have not mentioned up till now what part I am going to take on this Committee, neither am I going to do so. I was giving my own experience. Perhaps I am the only man in the House who has to live on his salary. [HON. MEMBERS: "No, no."]
Mr Charles White: I obey your ruling, Sir.

Mr Charles White: Will the details of this particular order be placed on the Army Supplementary Estimates?
Mr Charles White: 47. asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether, when he communicates to the Press the names of cadets of the auxiliary force, Royal Irish Canstabulary, or of men of the Royal Irish Constabulary murdered in the execution of their office, he will, as far as possible, in the case of those who served during the War abroad, give details of their war services, wounds, and decorations received,...
