Orders of the Day — Unemployment Insurance Bill.: New Clause. — (Power to make grants out of unemployment fund towards cost of approved courses of instruction.) (5 Dec 1927)

Mr Edmund Wood: I think the hon. Member who has just spoken has been a little hard on the Minister. In conjunction with other hon.

Russia.: Communist Propaganda and Trade Agreement. (25 Jun 1926)

Mr Edmund Wood: I mean Communist propaganda. To my mind, the far more serious aspect of the matter is the attempt, and I regret to say in some cases the successful attempt, which is being made by men of pronounced Communist tendencies to seize the reins of leadership in the trade unions in this country. So far, too little notice has been taken of this movement, either inside or outside the movement. The...
