Orders of the Day — Supply.: Ministry of Labour. (26 Jun 1924)

Sir George Marks: That did not reach me. If it had, it would have been distinctly out of order.

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Ministry of Labour. (26 Jun 1924)

Sir George Marks: I think the hon. Member is going rather wide of the subject, and perhaps he could keep a little closer.

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Ministry of Labour. (26 Jun 1924)

Sir George Marks: I find that this Vote involves matters connected with the training of demobilised officers, and therefore I think the hon. Member is in order.

Orders of the Day — Export Trade. (21 May 1924)

Sir George Marks: I beg to second the Motion. I do so, perhaps, from entirely different motives from those which have prompted my hon. Friend the Member for the Drake Division of Plymouth (Sir A. S. Benn) in moving it, and in order that there may be no suggestion in this House that there is a monopoly in any one party of the desire to advance what may make for the prosperity of this country. While there is no...

MERCHANDISE MARKS BILL [Lords]. ( 5 Jul 1922)

Sir George Marks: While this Bill purports to be one which is to protect industry, I fear unless it is very considerably altered it will do more towards harassing than towards helping. It sets out with the avowed object of making it difficult for goods coming from abroad to come in unless they are subject to very careful scrutiny. This of necessity means delay, and while it means delay it may also mean a loss...

Orders of the Day — Prevention of Unemployment Bill. (12 May 1922)

Sir George Marks: It is rather refreshing to find that everyone who has spoken to-day is sympathetic towards that which is concerned with maintaining employment in this country. I do not propose to follow my hon. and gallant Friend who has just spoken in matters which are essentially controversial, and which, I think, were brought somewhat unwisely into this matter in which there should be no suggestion of...

Orders of the Day — Prevention of Unemployment Bill. (12 May 1922)

Sir George Marks: I am very glad to have the hon. Member's explanation. I was not dealing so much with private work done by a private firm for the Government as with the private work that a private firm undertakes, about which no Government Department knows anything whatever. My point is that the largest proportion of work that must necessarily be undertaken in this country is work outside the control and...

Workmen's Compensation. ( 3 May 1922)

Sir George Marks: I want to support the proposal in order that there may be no suggestion that those who are not directly concerned with manual labour, but who have had experience of it, are not in full sympathy with the recommendations of the Committee. I want to join in the appeal to the Home Secretary that he should treat this, not as a sectional application from one part of the House, but as a humanitarian...

Orders of the Day — Patents and Designs Bill.: Clause 1. — (Provisions for the Prevention of Abuse of Monopoly Rights.) ( 8 Aug 1919)

Sir George Marks: I think that my hon. Friends do not quite appreciate that the present is the very easiest, simplest, and most expeditious manner of having these matters inquired into. Further than that, if they go to the High Court direct they take away the possibility of appeal which exists at present in the case of decisions by the Comptroller.

Orders of the Day — Patents and Designs Bill. (28 Jul 1919)

Sir George Marks: I think I have never heard the Mover of the rejection of a Bill and the Seconder make stronger speeches in favour of the Bill in question than those two hon. Gentlemen have just made. Those speeches show that they cannot possibly have read this Bill, for the Bill sets out very effectively, very strongly, very definitely, and very clearly to remedy the very abuses that they have been speaking...

Orders of the Day — Patents and Designs Bill. (28 Jul 1919)

Sir George Marks: Clause 8 was referred to.

Orders of the Day — Patents and Designs Bill. (28 Jul 1919)

Sir George Marks: I withdraw. Clause 8 is a Clause which deals only with licences to the Crown, and has nothing whatever to do with licences to the individual. It is Clause 1 of the Bill which deals with the very abuses which have been complained of, and that shows that the hon. Members cannot have studied the Bill. Clause 1 (e) provides that If any trade or industry in the United Kingdom or any person or...

Orders of the Day — RESTORATION OF PRE-WAR PRACTICES (No. 3) BILL ( 2 Jun 1919)

Sir George Marks: The bringing in of this Bill justifies the pledges given by a large number of men, of whom I was one. who went from this House to endeavour to get trade unionists to abandon some of their practices and abrogate others during the time of the War. One of the chief grounds of objection to the Bill used by the men was that they did not believe that they would ever again get back to these...

Oral Answers to Questions — India.: Tanks (Invention and Design). (17 Mar 1919)

Sir George Marks: 42. asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Munitions whether it is intended to act upon the recommendations made in the Report of the Committee presided over by Lord Moulton by paying the awards to the persons found by them to be entitled to such for the invention and design of the tanks?
