Orders of the Day — REPRESENTATION OF THE PEOPLE (No. 2) BILL. (3 Feb 1931)

Mr Ernest Bennett: Does the hon. Gentleman say there are 12,000 members of the University of Oxford with voting rights abroad?

Orders of the Day — REPRESENTATION OF THE PEOPLE (No. 2) BILL. (2 Feb 1931)

Mr Ernest Bennett: I would like to confine my remarks to that Clause of the Bill dealing with university franchise. I was for something like 20 years a resident fellow of an Oxford college and was therefore brought very much in contact with the theory and practice of a great university and its institutions. Before I pass to that Clause, I should like to express the hope that the discussion on the alternative...

Orders of the Day — REPRESENTATION OF THE PEOPLE (No. 2) BILL. (2 Feb 1931)

Mr Ernest Bennett: No, he never did, and he never will. The third argument is so feeble that I really wonder that anyone representing the intellectual eminence of Oxford should have put it in his paper: We urge that our universities are equally entitled with trade unions to special representation. At Oxford we emphasise the value of logic. If that sentence had been placed in an examination paper, it would have...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport.: Traffic Inspectorships. (5 Nov 1930)

Mr Ernest Bennett: 67. asked the Minister of Transport whether, in the application forms for traffic inspectorships applicants were required to give information as to any naval or military service on their part?

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport.: Traffic Inspectorships. (5 Nov 1930)

Mr Ernest Bennett: May I ask why the question of military or naval service should enter into the matter of such appointments?

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport.: Traffic Inspectorships. (5 Nov 1930)

Mr Ernest Bennett: Is it necessary that that practice should be continued under the Labour Government?

Education [Money]. (30 May 1930)

Mr Ernest Bennett: I am one of that diminishing band who took part in the discussions on education during the agitation of 1906, and I well remember the by no means pleasant atmosphere of bitter controversy in which those debates on the question of religious accommodation were conducted. That was a lamentable and deplorable chapter in our Parliamentary history. To-day we have gone far beyond that. The increased...

Education [Money]. (30 May 1930)

Mr Ernest Bennett: I am sorry if I have transgressed. I should like to refer to two other points which I think will come within the Financial Resolution. One is with regard to the reconstruction that will be permissible in connection with these grants. The Minister said, in his interesting and able speech yesterday, that he could not consent to any Amendment which would fundamentally destroy the basis of the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Leasehold Enfranchisement. (15 May 1930)

Mr Ernest Bennett: 45. asked the Prime Minister whether it is the intention of the Government to deal with the question of leasehold enfranchisement?

Oral Answers to Questions — House of Commons.: Hadrian's Wall. (14 Apr 1930)

Mr Ernest Bennett: 63. asked the First Commissioner of Works whether, in view of the fact that the proposed quarries in the vicinity of Housesteads (Borcovicus) would actually lie within the boundaries of the Roman fortifications, between the wall and the lines of the vallum, steps can be taken to preserve intact this section of our greatest monument of Roman Britain?

Oral Answers to Questions — House of Commons.: Hadrian's Wall. (14 Apr 1930)

Mr Ernest Bennett: Cannot the whole system of these fortifications, walls, intervening spaces, milestones and vallums, be scheduled at once as ancient monuments?

Oral Answers to Questions — House of Commons.: Hadrian's Wall. (14 Apr 1930)

Mr Ernest Bennett: Has the vallum been scheduled as an ancient monument, and not only the wall?

Oral Answers to Questions — Palestine.: MR. Jabotinsky. (26 Mar 1930)

Mr Ernest Bennett: Is it not a fact that a person deported from Palestine or any other country is ipso facto debarred from returning as and when he likes?

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?

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

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?

Oral Answers to Questions — Palestine.: MR. Jabotinsky (Speech). (5 Feb 1930)

Mr Ernest Bennett: Is it not a fact that in 1920 Mr. Jabotinsky was liberated from gaol after serving six weeks of his 15 years' sentence, and was deported on the distinct understanding that he was not to return to Palestine?
