Friend has carried out his...

I have seen there hundreds of blown trees, lying there...

Friend the Member for Coat-bridge (Mr. Barr) without one thought in his mind, namely—and I hope that Englishmen here will not resent what I am going to say—that that speech, or a similar speech in the same spirit, would not have been delivered in an English education Debate.
