Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Navy.: Dockyards (Discharges). (28 Mar 1928)

Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Navy.: Dockyard EmployÉS (Ministry of Labour Appointments). (28 Mar 1928)

Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Navy.: His Majesty's Ship "concord" (Mess Accommodation). (28 Mar 1928)

Mr William Bridgeman: The complement for which accommodation is provided includes 17 engine-room artificer ratings. The ship left for China last month (not last November), carrying 26 engine-room artificer ratings.

Oral Answers to Questions — Palestine.: Holloway Prison (J. E. Stutton). (27 Mar 1928)

Mr William Bridgeman: The Governor informed Stutton that he would have to report the matter to the Commissioners, as it was impossible for him to find entirely light work. The medical recommendation was carried out thus: Before the 10th March Stutton had been employed on general store porter's work and evening patrol duty. After that date, he was employed as messenger on evening patrol duty, occasionally as...

Oral Answers to Questions — Palestine.: Cruelty to Animals (Sentences). (27 Mar 1928)

Mr William Bridgeman: I have no doubt that in some cases the sentences passed on offenders of this class are more lenient than many of us would think right. The remedy, however, seems to me to lie in the development of a proper interest and a healthy public opinion on the subject: and to that end the various unofficial agencies interested, whose activities I welcome, can, I am sure, do much more than any...

Oral Answers to Questions — Palestine.: Cruelty to Animals (Sentences). (27 Mar 1928)

Mr William Bridgeman: I have considered the question of a circular, but I think on the whole I prefer to leave it to public opinion. Every case differs in its conditions and circumstances, and I do not think it will be possible to draw up any circular which would be of any definite guidance to magistrates. I am sure the Debates we have had and the questions which have been asked and answered will have done a great...

Mr William Bridgeman: I do not think that is right.

Orders of the Day — Navy Supplementary Estimate, 1927. (22 Mar 1928)

Mr William Bridgeman: I am not called upon to answer hypothetical questions of that kind. I am trying to answer a question which the hon. Gentleman opposite raised about 6-inch gun cruisers. The present intention is not, certainly this year, to lay down a cruiser with 6-inch guns. If we had any reason to suppose that the numbers of those large 8-inch gun cruisers were going to be limited in future by other...

Orders of the Day — Navy Supplementary Estimate, 1927. (22 Mar 1928)

Mr William Bridgeman: I am very glad of that interruption, because I agree very much with what the Noble Lady has said. We had honourable differences at Geneva. We never had any violent animosity. We agreed on an immense number of points, which in themselves would afford the subject of a separate agreement. I tried to get an agreement signed on the other things, but was unable to do so. I think it would be far...
