Orders of the Day — Naval Prize [Transfer of Fund]. (7 May 1928)

Mr William Bridgeman: The whole discussion turns on whether or not the bargain made between the Admiralty and tht Treasury is a good one for those who might be recipients of something from the Naval Prize Fund. It has been very carefully considered, and we came to the conclusion that it was a fair one. Nothing that has occurred this evening has shown that it is not. It must be a matter of speculation to some...

Mr William Bridgeman: I think it will be agreed that we have had a Debate full of interest, and that the law with which this Bill endeavours to deal requires amendment.

Orders of the Day — Workmen's Compensation Bill. (4 May 1928)

Mr William Bridgeman: I do not care whether they are behind me or in front of me. I am quite certain the general public are of one opinion on this subject, and think that more should be returned than has been returned in the course of past years.
