Egypt. (23 Dec 1929)

Mr Ernest Bennett: I will ask the attention of the House for a very few minutes, because there will be ample opportunities later for discussing the vexed questions of Egypt in general and the Treaty in particular. I would like to call attention to the emphasis which the last speaker has put upon the amount of illiteracy amongst the Egyptian people. That illiteracy, to some extent, reflects upon the boasted...

Egypt. (23 Dec 1929)

Mr Ernest Bennett: Yes, it was a real honour, and I have kept in touch with friends in Egypt of various positions and views. Educated and thoughtful people in Egypt are now looking forward, after what has been a foreign domination for nearly half a century, an unacceptable domination, to real independence, not a sham independence, through the sagacity and courage of a Labour Government in England. At a moment...

Orders of the Day — Blasphemy Laws (Amendment) Bill. (24 Jan 1930)

Mr Ernest Bennett: After the reassuring words of the Home Secretary, I shall have no scruple in voting for the Second Reading of the Bill, because those reassuring words mean that, if the Bill comes back to the House from Committee, the objectionable features alluded to by the hon. Member for Oxford University (Sir C. Oman) will be excised. I wish that the author of the Bill would accept the suggested Amendment...

Orders of the Day — Blasphemy Laws (Amendment) Bill. (24 Jan 1930)

Mr Ernest Bennett: I am praising the hon. Member, not them. [Interruption.] It is a fact in all seriousness that there are to-day millions of our fellow-citizens who are guided in life, comforted in trouble, and cheered in the hour of death by Christianity. These things are true. You are at perfect liberty to question the validity of the facts on which people base their faith. It is open to us all, from Bishop...

Orders of the Day — Rabbits Bill. (7 Mar 1930)

Mr Ernest Bennett: With all due respect to the modified pessimism of the hon. Member for South West Norfolk (Mr. W. B. Taylor) I welcome the Bill, and I should like to join in the congratulations to the hon. Member who moved it on his reasoned statement. I congratulate him also on another matter; that the evolution of political opinion should have produced a Bill of this kind from the Conservative benches. I...

Orders of the Day — Rabbits Bill. (7 Mar 1930)

Mr Ernest Bennett: The Bill says "abate or destroy." One knows the difficulty of measures for keeping down rabbits in a climate like ours. You never know where you are. I remember entering upon a crusade of rabbit destruction a year ago. What were the conditions then? We had three weeks of incessant frost and it was impossible to put a spade into the ground. Then there were deluges of rain. The Bill must...

Orders of the Day — Rabbits Bill. (7 Mar 1930)

Mr Ernest Bennett: Bring rooks and wood pigeons into this Bill if you wish. Who could make anything out of rabbits killed in April, May or June? I shot seven of them last Saturday and I need hardly add that I am not going to eat any of them. The Bill refers to "any person." Is tie county council to send one person or more than one person? Does "any person" mean one person accompanied by other persons?

Mr Ernest Bennett: One or more?

Orders of the Day — Rabbits Bill. (7 Mar 1930)

Mr Ernest Bennett: Even if it be one person, are the promotors of the Bill not going to introduce some provision which at any rate will limit the destruction of rabbits, as far as fire-arms are concerned, between September 1st and Christmas or the end of December? There is one other matter I must mention. Picture a county borough sending some gunner, accompanied by dogs, with strong chasing proclivities, into...

Orders of the Day — Rabbits Bill. (7 Mar 1930)

Mr Ernest Bennett: Have not I?
