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

Mr William Bridgeman: I think it was the hon. Member for Broxtowe who made the statement I have in mind. I will read his speech, but I am quite sure he used words which came very near to expressing what I should like to express myself. It is this—where a man generally thinks he is advancing the work of his employer, it is unfair that he should be ruled out by the words "arising out of." That is a point on which...

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

Mr William Bridgeman: I hope we are all trying to do the best we can for those affected, but we want to have justice; we want to have safety, and we want to make a man less ready to break the rules and risk, not only his own life, but the lives of his fellow workmen. For my own part, I would be more inclined to be severe on a man who suffered a trivial accident through carelessness than on the relations of the man...

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

Mr William Bridgeman: I do not know whether the right hon. Gentleman will think they are any better, but I will try to get some words which will, in my opinion, do justice. [An HON. MEMBER: "They cannot be worse than the present words."] I hope the hon. Member will like my words. In regard to the position of the Government on this Bill, I may say that I hope to introduce my Bill very shortly. I have spoken to the...

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

Promotion to the rank of commissioned engineer is obtained on the completion of 10 years' service as warrant engineer, and is, therefore, dependent upon that. With the hon. Member's permission, I...

Mr William Bridgeman: Harbour Launch Number 27 left the pontoon at Torpoint on the evening of the 30th of March, proceeded down the river until clear of obstructions, then altered course to port and steadied on a course for the dock at the entrance to Barrack Creek. The ferry was meanwhile crossing from Devonport to Torpoint. The prow of the ferry struck the launch abreast of the funnel. The ferry after going...

Oral Answers to Questions — H.M.S. "royal Oak.": Admiralty Decision. (17 Apr 1928)

Mr William Bridgeman: As my honourable and gallant Friend is aware, Naval Courts of Inquiry are not judicial bodies, and in view of their wide objects as set forth in the King's Regulations it is considered that their usefulness could be reduced rather than increased by applying the restrictions proper to a Court of Law. My honourable and gallant Friend is incorrect in stating that it is the practice at Military...

Oral Answers to Questions — H.M.S. "royal Oak.": Admiralty Decision. (17 Apr 1928)

Mr William Bridgeman: I am quite aware of these circumstances, but I cannot give the hon. and gallant Gentleman an undertaking that he will be employed, because the number of vacancies is limited, and I must wait until a suitable one occurs. We never make it a practice in advance to undertake to give such employment.

Oral Answers to Questions — H.M.S. "royal Oak.": Admiralty Decision. (17 Apr 1928)

Mr William Bridgeman: I am heartily in agreement with what my hon. and gallant Friend (Sir F. Hall) has said. With regard to publishing the whole of the proceedings of the Courts-Martial, I must say, without giving a definite refusal, that I see no great advantage to be gained by doing it. There are very few people who, like myself, have read through the whole of the evidence of the Courts-Martial, five hundred or...
