Orders of the Day — King's Speech.: Debate on the Address. (8 Feb 1922)

Captain John Jameson: He must know that the profits of traders, the profits of industrial concerns, the profits of mines, and everything of that sort have been falling for months. [HON. MEMBERS: "What about the banks?"] One knows that the workers are very badly hit, and everybody is deeply sympathetic and sorry; but what more could be said in the King's Speech than that the matter is engaging the earnest attention...

Orders of the Day — King's Speech.: Debate on the Address. (8 Feb 1922)

Captain John Jameson: The hon. Gentleman had a great deal more to with it than the Government. It would have been better had he and his party applied themselves to stopping the ruinous instinct of class war which has been productive of such a tremendous lot of dislocation and loss of trade and employment. The worst embodiment of that was the miners' strike. [HON. MEMBERS: "Lock-out!"] There was a distinct...

Orders of the Day — King's Speech.: Debate on the Address. (8 Feb 1922)

Captain John Jameson: Wait and see.

Orders of the Day — Emergency Powers Act, 1920 (Regulations). (2 Jun 1921)

Captain John Jameson: Which part of the Bible is that?

Orders of the Day — Emergency Powers Act, 1920 (Regulations). (2 Jun 1921)

Captain John Jameson: Perhaps it is best to dispel from, our minds the picture that has been conjured up before our eyes by the hon. Member who has just spoken, of upon one side the meek and lamb-like miner and on the other side the brutal policeman and the tyrannical Government. The miner is just as human as other people. He is a very good fellow. He did very well in the War. Taken by himself, when not led...

Orders of the Day — Emergency Powers Act, 1920 (Regulations). (2 Jun 1921)

Captain John Jameson: It was perhaps very deplorable, but that extremely deplorable ambition is, as far as I can gather, shared by about 90 per cent. of His Majesty's lieges in this island just now. I think that perhaps in that case the Government did not do very much good by prosecuting the hon. Member. I was speaking really for the mitigation of punishment in such cases as his. All other countries take the view...

Oral Answers to Questions — League of Nations.: Official Secrets Act. (18 Apr 1921)

Captain John Jameson: Was it not stated, in the course of the Douglas-Pennant inquiry, that the proper method was for the person libelled to bring a civil action for libel, and in view of the fact that the writer of this book has brought charges amounting to treasonable divulgence of future plans of campaign against Sir William Robertson and General Sir F. Maurice, will the right hon. Gentleman say whether those...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Additional Number of Land Forces. (18 Apr 1921)

Captain John Jameson: I shall not be long. I do not want to make the hon. Gentleman more impatient than he is. I rise to make a protest against the attack on the legality of raising the Defence Force and the policy of raising the Defence Force. I think everyone is really convinced that the Defence Force is absolutely necessary. You had the situation created in the mines by the departure of the safety men....

Orders of the Day — Emergency Powers Act, 1920 (Regulations).: Conference Proposal Accepted. (6 Apr 1921)

Captain John Jameson: After the very forbearing, patient, and explanatory speech that has been made by the right hon. Gentleman, the Home Secretary, I just rise to make one or two remarks. I think it will be within the purview of this House—and especially my hon. Friend the Member for Merthyr Tydvil (Mr. Stanton), who has been annoyed by something—that the Debate which yesterday and for the first two hours...

Orders of the Day — Emergency Powers Act, 1920 (Regulations).: Conference Proposal Accepted. (6 Apr 1921)

Captain John Jameson: We seem to have taken a plunge into a region or atmosphere of party recriminations which at any moment like the present one must very gravely deplore. It stands out in marked contrast with the tone and temper of the speeches yesterday and the first two hours of this afternoon. I suppose it was inevitable that hon. Members opposite should make this demonstration in favour of the liberty of the...

Orders of the Day — Agriculture Bill: Clause 7. — (Compensation for Dis- turbance.) (19 Nov 1920)

Captain John Jameson: A point which strikes me very much, as an advocate, is the possible effect on an arbitrator's mind of such a high maximum as four years. The argument on the other side is, of course, that the arbitrator will just adjust matters, and

Orders of the Day — Agriculture Bill: Clause 7. — (Compensation for Dis- turbance.) (19 Nov 1920)

Captain John Jameson: I do not think there is any doubt that leases from year to year fall under the category of agricultural holdings. There is a special provision in the Agricultural Holdings Act of 1908 which says that in the case of leases from year to year six months' notice shall be given before the termination of the lease, and obviously therefore you need a written notice.

Orders of the Day — Agriculture Bill: Clause 7. — (Compensation for Dis- turbance.) (19 Nov 1920)

Captain John Jameson: I think this is a very important Amendment, and it should have been more sympathetically entertained. After all, the argument against it seems to be that you must approach this on the basis that the tenant ought to be given, and by this Bill is going to be given, a vested interest in the land, and should not be put out of it except under a heavy penalty to the landlord. But, after all, you...

Orders of the Day — Agriculture Bill.: Clause 7. — (Compensation for Dis- turbance.) (18 Nov 1920)

Captain John Jameson: The hon. Member for Norfolk South (Mr. G. Edwards) reiterated a very old fallacy, and I would ask the House to disabuse its mind altogether of that fallacy. He said that we were discussing here the question of compensation to a tenant farmer who has put money and capital into the soil, and who finds himself at the and of his tenancy, a contract tenancy, deprived of that money in capital. That...

Orders of the Day — Agriculture Bill.: Clause 7. — (Compensation for Dis- turbance.) (18 Nov 1920)

Captain John Jameson: I know the answer will be that that only occurs when the land is taken back.

Orders of the Day — Agriculture Bill.: Clause 7. — (Compensation for Dis- turbance.) (18 Nov 1920)

Captain John Jameson: My point is that one year's compensation at the termination of the tenancy is sufficient injustice to inflict upon the landlord and that four years is too much, and accordingly I think it should be limited to one year. Under this proposal it might go on for any amount of years, and I shall support the Amendment which limits and fixes the landlord's liability.

Part Ii.: Clause 7. — (Compensation for Disturbance.) (17 Nov 1920)

Captain John Jameson: The Minister in charge might give us more information on this Clause. He has had a very difficult task to make this Bill, particularly Clause 7, palatable to any section of the House. The universal condemnation which this Clause has received, both from the landlord faction and the farmer faction, might make him pause before putting this Clause finally into the Bill. He has said that the one...

Oral Answers to Questions — Russia and Poland.: Munitions. (9 Aug 1920)

Captain John Jameson: Will the right hon. Gentleman assure hon. Members that we shall do nothing to assist smaller nations in maintaining their independence against the big nation?

Orders of the Day — FIREARMS BILL [Lords].: Clause 18. — (Application to Ireland.) (9 Aug 1920)

Captain John Jameson: I oppose the Amendment. I have a certain objection to the Clause, but it is of an entirely different character from those put forward by the hon. Member. For very many peaceful, law-abiding people it is a necessity of life almost that, if they are to remain in life, they shall have firearms with which to defend themselves against murderers and rebels. It may be very strongly urged that in...
