Parliamentary Papers (Distribution). ( 6 May 1926)

Sir Francis Lowe: Before we proceed to the Orders of the Day, I should like to ask you, Mr. Speaker, how it is that the Paper containing the Orders of the Day is so partially distributed? I notice that a great many Members around me have these Order Papers, but I applied to the Vote Office early in the afternoon, and could not get a copy. I really think that either they should not be distributed at all, or...

Parliamentary Papers (Distribution). ( 6 May 1926)

Sir Francis Lowe: Would it not be possible for a sufficient number of copies to be printed to supply all the Members of House? I should have thought that even such an emergency as now exists would not prevent the House of Commons Papers from being printed in sufficient number to supply a copy of the Order Paper to each Member.

Orders of the Day — Rent and Mortgage Interest Restrictions Bill. ( 9 Jul 1923)

Sir Francis Lowe: That Amendment is rather more complicated, and has effects which my new Clause has not. I should not have thought that the new Clause was necessarily out of order. It deals with a definite matter.

Orders of the Day — Rent and Mortgage Interest Restrictions Bill. ( 9 Jul 1923)

MR. Horatio Bottomley.: Order to Attend House. (25 Jul 1922)

Sir Francis Lowe: If the hon. Member for South Hackney were adjudicated a bankrupt, would not that, ipso facto, vacate his seat? Were that procedure adopted, would it not be very much better than asking the hon. Member to attend here, and moving a Motion for his expulsion?

Oral Answers to Questions — Post Office.: Paris Mails. (27 Jun 1922)

Sir Francis Lowe: 35. asked the Postmaster-General whether it would be possible for him, in consultation with the postal authorities in France, to arrange for the pre-War service of letters between France and England to be resumed, and, particularly, for letters posted in Paris in the afternoon or evening of one day to leave Paris the same night, so that they might be delivered in London the next morning;...

Oral Answers to Questions — Honours Lists. (27 Jun 1922)

Sir Francis Lowe: Have any new circumstances arisen which call for an inquiry of this kind and the appointment of a Committee? According to the impression left by Members who have asked these questions, it has been the custom almost from time immemorial, for the Prime Minister to recommend certain people to His Majesty for honours. In my experience and recollection it has always been left to the unfettered...

Sir Francis Lowe: 11. asked the Secretary of State for India whether his attention has been called to the action of the new Bengal Council in making a wholesale reduction in the grants for reserved Departments; and whether he proposes to take any steps to support the protest of the Governor and to prevent any recurrence of such action?

Orders of the Day — Increase of Rent and Mortgage Interest (Restrictions) Bill.: Clause 2. — (Permitted Increases in Rent.) (21 Jun 1920)

Sir Francis Lowe: On a point of Order. May I submit that the Amendment is entirely inconsistent with the portion of the Clause which we have already passed. We have said already that certain increases shall be allowed. It is possible that those all added together might exceed one-third in a year. Therefore this Amendment would nullify what has already been done.

Orders of the Day — Increase of Rent and Mortgage Interest (Restrictions) Bill.: Clause 2. — (Permitted Increases in Rent.) (21 Jun 1920)

Sir Francis Lowe: I beg to second the Amendment. I think the period of three months is wholly inadequate, and that you cannot possibly expect to get the repairs done in that time. We all know how scarce labour and material are. However willing a landlord might be to carry out repairs, it would be a practical impossibility for him to do so. There is to be considered the effect upon the building of new houses if...

Orders of the Day — Increase of Rent and Mortgage Interest (Restrictions) Bill.: Clause 5. — (Restriction on right to possession). (21 Jun 1920)

Sir Francis Lowe: May I explain? The previous Sub-section says that possession may be obtained when the tenant has given notice to quit. I wish to insert a further Sub-section to provide that possession may be obtained when the term of the agreement has expired, which is much the same thing.

Orders of the Day — Increase of Rent and Mortgage Interest (Restrictions) Bill.: Clause 5. — (Restriction on right to possession). (21 Jun 1920)

Sir Francis Lowe: Say there is an agreement for a term of three years, expiring on the 24th of this month. A few months ago the landlord sold the house on the understanding that the purchaser could obtain possession on the 24th. Now the tenant who has been in possession for the three years which have expired refuses to go. I want to make it possible for the purchaser to obtain possession at the end of three...
