Orders of the Day — ALLOTMENTS BILL [Lords].: NEW CLAUSE (Loans to Societies). (28 Jul 1922)

Mr George Barnes: I wish to add my voice to the many voices raised in appeal to the Minister to reconsider his decision. The speech of my hon. Friend the Member for the City of London (Mr. E. C. Grenfell), who is a, Commissioner, is entitled to due weight, but he has only told us that he, as a Commissioner, would not agree to the lending of the money for the purpose intended in this Clause. That may be the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Post Office.: International Labour Conference (Conventions). (11 Jul 1922)

Mr George Barnes: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that I have received no reply at all, and, further, that 12 months is the normal period within which these conventions ought to be submitted to the competent authorities, and that I have been worrying the Minister of Labour for the last month or two and got no reply at all; and, further, will he see that some representations are made to the Minister in the...

Orders of the Day — TREATIES OF WASHINGTON BILL [Lords]. (7 Jul 1922)

Mr George Barnes: I want in a word or two to add my voice to those already raised in welcoming this Bill as a great step forward in the reduction of armaments generally throughout the world, which, I think, is the greatest question now before us. My mind reverts to the time when I first came to this House, and from then onward to the opening of the Great War. We were constantly engaged in talking about the...

Orders of the Day — Ireland.: Irish Office, etc. (26 Jun 1922)

Mr George Barnes: The two last speakers are well entitled in this House to speak for Northern Ireland and, indeed, as Irishmen, for all Ireland, and I think that we all listened to them with respect and admiration because of their sincerity. But I was rather sorry to note during those two speeches the whole-hearted desire to condemn the Government and denounce the Government. They seemed to suggest to the...

Genoa Conference.: Great Results Already from Genoa. (25 May 1922)

Mr George Barnes: The first word I wish to say is in reference to the last word of the hon. Member who has just sat down. I think there is too much disposition on the part of hon. Members to push one particular idea to the exclusion of all others. I am in favour of other methods besides those embodied in this Conference in order to get a better state of things in Europe, and in order to get employment for our...

Genoa Conference.: Great Results Already from Genoa. (25 May 1922)

Mr George Barnes: That is a rather rhetorical statement which was made some time ago.

Genoa Conference.: Great Results Already from Genoa. (25 May 1922)

Mr George Barnes: And I think we might reduce our Navy a good deal more, but that is not the point. Some time ago statements were made about a 10 years' peace, and the position is not so satisfactory to-day from the international point of view as it was when those statements were made. I think if there was nothing else to commend this Conference this eight months' truce must be considered a feather in the cap...

Genoa Conference.: Great Results Already from Genoa. (25 May 1922)

Mr George Barnes: I made no reference to mistakes in the past.

Civil Services Supplementary Estimate, 1922–23.: Clause 1. — (Power of Secretary of State to co-operate in schemes.) (22 May 1922)

Mr George Barnes: It seems to me that the hon. Member for Kirkdale (Mr. Pennefather) as well as the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty has not altogether read the Bill aright. The hon. Member for Kirkdale said that the Government were under an obligation to act with the Dominion Governments. I do not see that in the Bill.

Civil Services Supplementary Estimate, 1922–23.: Clause 1. — (Power of Secretary of State to co-operate in schemes.) (22 May 1922)

Mr George Barnes: It might be agreed between the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty and a private corporation in Australia or Canada. I take it that this Amendment is to prevent that, and to impose on the hon. Gentleman, or whoever acts in this case, an obligation to act with the Dominion Government. That is a safeguard for the settler.

Civil Services Supplementary Estimate, 1922–23.: Clause 1. — (Power of Secretary of State to co-operate in schemes.) (22 May 1922)

Mr George Barnes: While appreciating the desire of my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Newcastle-under-Lyme (Colonel Wedgwood) to save the taxpayer from being fleeced by the land speculator, I am sorry that my hon. and gallant Friend is going to take a vote on this occasion.

Civil Services Supplementary Estimate, 1922–23.: Clause 1. — (Power of Secretary of State to co-operate in schemes.) (22 May 1922)

Mr George Barnes: I welcome this Bill, because, in the first place, it seems to me to be calculated to weave bonds of mutual interest and sympathy between ourselves and the territories overseas I agree with the definition "commonwealth of nations," which has been given by an hon. Member, rather than the term "empire." We have now reached the stage when each of the overseas Dominions is a self-governing...

Civil Services Supplementary Estimate, 1922–23.: Clause 1. — (Power of Secretary of State to co-operate in schemes.) (22 May 1922)

Mr George Barnes: I thought. I was justified in using that argument in favour of.the Bill, as against those advanced on the other side.

Civil Services Supplementary Estimate, 1922–23.: Clause 1. — (Power of Secretary of State to co-operate in schemes.) (22 May 1922)

Mr George Barnes: I am in favour of this Bill because it provides a means by which we can lessen industrial unemployment. The hon. and gallant Member for Newcastle-under-Lyme said that the men placed on the land in Canada and elsewhere must necessarily be men accustomed to work on the land in this country. It seems to me that we might have gone a little further and have done something in the way of training...
