Captain Reginald Berkeley: Is that not rather as though he were awaiting execution?

Orders of the Day — Irish Free State (Confirmation of Agreement) Bill. (1 Oct 1924)

Captain Reginald Berkeley: I very much wish that the hon. Gentleman who has just sat down had confined himself to relating the very interesting account of his interview with Mr. Cosgrave, which I am sure every one present was extremely interested to hear, instead of allowing himself to be led away into relating stories based upon hearsay, and, above all, with betraying himself into the very seriously inaccurate...

Orders of the Day — Irish Free State (Confirmation of Agreement) Bill. (1 Oct 1924)

Captain Reginald Berkeley: We all sympathise with the right hon. Gentleman's very proper concern for the affairs of Ulster, but surely he will realise that very often when formal negotiations take place, it is the commonest practice in international affairs for those negotiations to take place before a Round Table Conference is called together. That has been done very successfully in regard to very delicate questions...

Orders of the Day — Irish Free State (Confirmation of Agreement) Bill. (1 Oct 1924)

Captain Reginald Berkeley: At any rate, it was an honest attempt to get an agreement for a Round Table Conference.

Orders of the Day — Irish Free State (Confirmation of Agreement) Bill. (1 Oct 1924)

Captain Reginald Berkeley: I do not think anybody would object to the heads of the Government entering into negotiations with Mr. De Valera in order to work out the details of the tripartite conference beforehand if my right hon. Friend thinks that is unreasonable, I am sorry, because I think it was a reasonable thing to do. After those pourparlers had taken place, the, Prime Minister wrote to Sir James Craig very...

Orders of the Day — Irish Free State (Confirmation of Agreement) Bill. (1 Oct 1924)

Captain Reginald Berkeley: That is not to say the Treaty would become a dead letter. I hope that, if possible, we shall avoid discussing that, terrible contingency, but it will not be to make the Treaty a dead letter. The final point that I should like to mention is this. There has been a great deal of loose talk about foreign countries in this Debate. We have been told about the Treaty of Versailles and of this Treaty...

Oral Answers to Questions — Russia (Treatment of MR. Hodgson). (30 Sep 1924)

Captain Reginald Berkeley: Have there been any complaints?

Orders of the Day — Consolidated Fund (Appropriation) Bill.: Anglo-Soviet Treaty. (7 Aug 1924)

Captain Reginald Berkeley: If the House propose to sit to-morrow to deal with the Adjournment Motion, would it not be better to continue the Debate on the Appropriation Bill?

Orders of the Day — Adjournment of the House (Summer). (7 Aug 1924)

Captain Reginald Berkeley: I beg to second the Amendment. It is quite obvious that the few hours remaining to-day will not suffice for the discussion of all the subjects that hon. Members wish to raise, and, as far as the proposal of the Chair is concerned—that the discussion on the Russian Treaty should be limited to two short speeches—with all deference to the Chair I venture humbly to point out that that cannot...

Oral Answers to Questions — Japan (Luxury Tariff). (5 Aug 1924)

Captain Reginald Berkeley: Will the right hon. Gentleman consider circulating his answers on the subject to hon. Members on the other side of the House to consider in connection with their agitation for Protection?

Oral Answers to Questions — Russia.: Trade Facilities Act. (5 Aug 1924)

Captain Reginald Berkeley: The Prime Minister, the Leader of the party, gave the pledge.

Orders of the Day — Consolidated Fund (Appropriation) Bill.: Ex-Ranker Officers. (4 Aug 1924)

Captain Reginald Berkeley: The speech of the Secretary of State, delivered on 4th August, 1924, 10 years after the outbreak of the War which has led to the case which is now being brought before the House, will strike astonishment and dismay into the minds of all those who are seeking to defend the fighting services. I certainly did not expect, and I think no other Member of the House expected, that the right hon....

Orders of the Day — Consolidated Fund (Appropriation) Bill.: Ex-Ranker Officers. (4 Aug 1924)

Captain Reginald Berkeley: The difficulty in dealing with this question is that you have to make up your mind which is the party. There was then the Parliamentary Labour party, the Independent Labour party, and the Trade Unionist party. My hon. and gallant Friend commanded a battalion in the war, and I should have thought from what he saw of the work of the troops he would have had more sympathy for those for whom we...

Orders of the Day — Consolidated Fund (Appropriation) Bill.: Ex-Ranker Officers. (4 Aug 1924)

Captain Reginald Berkeley: I do not put this matter forward in any controversial spirit. I was pointing out that there is the Parliamentary Labour party, the Independent Labour party, the Trade Unionist party, and other parties similarly organised, and you cannot expect the headquarters of an organised body of men seeking to redress a grievance to go behind the word of the leader of their party. The Prime Minister at...

Orders of the Day — Consolidated Fund (Appropriation) Bill.: Ex-Ranker Officers. (4 Aug 1924)

Captain Reginald Berkeley: If the word "disparagement." is the wrong word to use. I gladly withdraw it. I do not mean to say that the Secretary of State for War disparaged the gallantry of these men, but he did disparage their claims. What the right hon. Gentleman said was, "It is all very well for you to say these men came forward in a fine spirit of self-sacrifice to help the country. Perhaps they did, but they knew...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Air Force Estimates, 1924–25. (31 Jul 1924)

Captain Reginald Berkeley: Like the hon. and gallant Member who has just sat down, I, too, visited the Naval Review, and what I saw there so greatly impressed me, that I hope the House will permit me to make one or two remarks on the large question of naval policy generally. First, perhaps, may I endeavour to answer, not at all as an expert, but like himself, as a mere learner, the point put by my hon. Friend the...
