Orders of the Day — Profiteering Bill: Clause 1. — (Powers of the Board of Trade to Investigate Complaints and Take Proceedings.) (14 Aug 1919)

Captain John Jameson: I withdrew my Amendment, and the question before the House is whether the Attorney-General's Amendment should take the place of the words in the Bill at present. So far as the people for whom I am speaking are concerned, I very much prefer the Amendment of the Attorney-General to the words that stand in the Bill, and I hope hon. Members will not oppose the Attorney-General's Amendment.

Oral Answers to Questions — India.: Ex-Officers (Employment). (13 Aug 1919)

Captain John Jameson: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that there are a great many jobs going now in Mesopotamia and Palestine where retired Indian officers would be very useful on account of their knowledge of Oriental countries, and that very few of these jobs have been given to such invalided Indian officers, who are generally poor men who have had to live on their pay all their life and who will be very hard...

Oral Answers to Questions — Fallen Soldiers.: Peemanent Cenotaph in Whitehall. (13 Aug 1919)

Orders of the Day — Profiteering Bill.: Clause 1. — (Powers of the Board of Trade to Investigate Complaints and Take Proceedings). (13 Aug 1919)

Captain John Jameson: I think that some such word as "recklessly" should be further added. One is familiar with the case of a man lodging an information at random, which, although it is not false within his knowledge, yet is actually false, and for its falsity he is responsible, because he has not made due investigation. I think this is a very valuable part of the Clause, because it is a deterrent upon people...

Orders of the Day — Profiteering Bill.: Clause 1. — (Powers of the Board of Trade to Investigate Complaints and Take Proceedings). (13 Aug 1919)

Captain John Jameson: The only point raised by the right hon. Gentleman is that if the company is convicted it follows primâ facie, according to him, that every director is guilty. The whole point of this Amendment is that the very reverse is the case. It does not follow, because you convict a company, that any director is guilty. It cannot properly be so assumed, except in the case of the managing director....

Oral Answers to Questions — Super-Tax. (7 Aug 1919)

Orders of the Day — Housing and Town Planning (Scotland) Bill.: Clause 8. — (provisions as to Assessment of Compensation.) (25 Jul 1919)

Captain John Jameson: I beg to move, to leave out Sub-section (3), and to insert in-stead thereof the words (3) Where any land is included in an area in respect of which the Board under the provisions of Section fifty-four, Sub-section (2), of the Housing, Town planning, etc., Act, 1909, have authorised the local authority to prepare a town-planning scheme, or is included in an area in respect of which the local...

Captain John Jameson: 30. asked the Secretary of State for War if he is aware that Army horses in France which have been boarded unfit for the Army because of age or unsoundness are being sold to the natives of the country; and if he will take steps to stop a practice which is contrary to regulations and is unmerciful?

Easter Recess (Adjournment). (16 Apr 1919)

Captain John Jameson: My only regret at the end of this Debate is that the Prime Minister was not here in person, in order to have his ears charmed by the eloquent encomium just pronounced by the hon. Member for East Herts (Mr. Billing). The hon. Member was fully justified in singling out as the leading note of the Prime Minister's speech the note of courage. The note of courage always appeals to this country, and...

Orders of the Day — Naval, Military, and Air Force Service. (31 Mar 1919)

Captain John Jameson: The objection to the present Bill is, I understand, that this country shall retain the military weapon which it finds to its hands. We have been four years in forging that weapon. It is the finest military weapon the country ever had. The question is whether we can now afford to throw it aside, and whether we are going now to disarm because its work is supposed to be done. I take it from...

Orders of the Day — Naval, Military, and Air Force Service. (31 Mar 1919)

Captain John Jameson: Well, whether it is an ideal or an idea, it is one, in my opinion, made in Germany. It was invented by the Germans, subsidised by them. It was a great weapon in the Germans fighting the whole of civilisation. At the present moment it is still being used by German agents, still being subsidised by Germany. The Germans would appear to have great hope in it of escaping the consequences of the...
