Private Business.: LONDON ELECTRIC RAILWAY COMPANIES (FARES, ETC.) BILL [By Order]. (5 Jul 1920)

Sir Charles Edwards: I beg to second the Motion. I should like to say that one of the grounds upon which I second the Motion is, in my opinion, sufficient to justify the House in rejecting this Bill altogether. If it had not been that I personally take the view that was expressed by the Minister of Transport in the Second Reading Debate, and the view that was expressed by the Report of the London Committee on the...

Private Business.: LONDON ELECTRIC RAILWAY COMPANIES (FARES, ETC.) BILL [By Order]. (5 Jul 1920)

Sir Charles Edwards: Can the hon. Gentleman kindly give me the reference to that report in the proceedings?

Private Business.: LONDON ELECTRIC RAILWAY COMPANIES (FARES, ETC.) BILL [By Order]. (5 Jul 1920)

Sir Charles Edwards: Is it not a fact that all the counsel acted on the suggestion that as the Minister would fix the fares, it would be a waste of time to go into the question of fares there?

Private Business.: LONDON ELECTRIC RAILWAY COMPANIES (FARES, ETC.) BILL [By Order]. (5 Jul 1920)

Sir Charles Edwards: I do not suggest that, but I suggest that the Chairman, by allowing the promoters to proceed with reading the new preamble drafted by the Minister of Transport, put everybody in the position of considering the new Bill on the basis that the Minister was to fix fares and that the Committee should not fix them.

Private Business.: LONDON ELECTRIC RAILWAY COMPANIES (FARES, ETC.) BILL [By Order]. (5 Jul 1920)

Sir Charles Edwards: The Committee had already accepted the preamble you had dictated to the promoters, and, therefore, the Committee were dealing, not with the Bill sent from here, upon which objection might have been raised, but with an entirely new Bill.

Orders of the Day — Supply [17TH Allotted Day].: Ministry of Health. (15 Jul 1920)

Sir Charles Edwards: I beg to move, that the Vote be reduced by £100. My object in moving the reduction is to draw attention to one particular question, but before doing so I wish to make reference to the remark of the hon. Member (Mr. Hopkinson) that we on this side declared that private enterprise has failed. It never succeeded even in normal times and never will. To talk about private enterprise building all...

Orders of the Day — Supply [17TH Allotted Day].: Ministry of Health. (15 Jul 1920)

Sir Charles Edwards: State enterprise won the War, and if the same enterprise had been put into the building of houses that was put into the War we should have succeeded in this enterprise as we did in the War. The right hon. Member for Peebles (Sir D. Maclean) called it "officialism" and said that that was the cause. I would call it interference with the local authorities. Sometimes the room is too large,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Housing.: Rates (Assessment). (27 Oct 1920)

Sir Charles Edwards: 53. asked the Minister of Health whether he has received communications from local authorities asking permission to be allowed to assess the new houses for rating purposes the same as pre-War houses of similar size and convenience; whether he is aware that if rent is to be taken as the basis for rating purposes the new houses will be rated nearly three times higher than pre-War houses; and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Housing.: Houses Condemned. (27 Oct 1920)

Sir Charles Edwards: 54. asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that under powers given in the Public Health Act many houses have been closed by the local authorities; whether many of these could be put in habitable repair at a comparatively small cost, and by that means help to reduce the overcrowding prevalent; and whether he will call for a return of such houses and the estimated cost of repairing...

Orders of the Day — Emergency Powers Bill.: Clause 2. — (Emergency Regulations.) (27 Oct 1920)

Sir Charles Edwards: I beg to move, at the end of Sub-section (1), to insert the words Provided that nothing in this Act shall be Construed to authorise the making of any regulations abrogating any existing law or imposing any form of compulsory service.

Orders of the Day — Emergency Powers Bill.: Clause 2. — (Emergency Regulations.) (27 Oct 1920)

Sir Charles Edwards: I beg to ask leave to withdraw the Amendment. If necessary, we can discuss the Home Secretary s Amendment on the Report stage.

Private Business.: PORT OF LONDON AUTHORITY (CONSOLIDATION) RILL [Lords] (By Order). (28 Oct 1920)

Sir Charles Edwards: The hon. and gallant Member who has just sat down has made the point that this must be either the Second Reading of this Bill or nothing. One would have hoped to have heard from him, as representing the Port of London Authority, something like a sympathetic response with regard to the question of the rearrangement of representation on the Authority. There have been many conflicts in the...

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Health (Mis- Cellaneous Provisions) Bill. (4 Nov 1920)

Sir Charles Edwards: After the very severe criticisms that have been passed on this Bill, I may say that we on these Benches are not very keen on the measure. We do not favour these miscellaneous Bills which deal with so many subjects and refer to so many Acts of Parliament, Orders, provisions, and so on. If you look in the Second Schedule of this Bill, you will find that it refers to no fewer than ten or a dozen...

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Health (Mis- Cellaneous Provisions) Bill. (4 Nov 1920)

Sir Charles Edwards: The Bill says that the authority may have to take into consideration in fixing the rent the amount of money expended or to be expended. Surely that deals with repairs. What we say is this, that if repairs are to be done and they are considerable—and it does not take much repairs to-day to run up a bill of £100 or £200—that could not be brought in in the rent, and the local authority...

Oral Answers to Questions — Hong Kong.: Warfare (Inhuman Weapons). (9 Nov 1920)

Sir Charles Edwards: 49. asked the Prime Minister whether the proposal of the Russian Soviet Government for a general agreement not to use such in-human weapons of warfare as submarines, aeroplanes, and poison gases has been considered by the Cabinet; and whether an opportunity will be given the House of discussing the question?

Oral Answers to Questions — Ex-Service Men.: Sicily. (9 Nov 1920)

Sir Charles Edwards: 4. asked the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he can state the extent of the occupation of land in Sicily by the agricultural workers; and whether their seizure of the land has been sanctioned by the Italian Government?

Oral Answers to Questions — Housing.: Office of Works Building Schemes. (8 Dec 1920)

Sir Charles Edwards: 68. asked the Minister of Health in how many cases building schemes are being carried out under the Office of Works; and whether any of the men employéd on these schemes are not members of trade unions?

Oral Answers to Questions — National Health Insurance Act (Statistics). (8 Dec 1920)

Sir Charles Edwards: 44. asked the Minister of Health what was the income under the National Health Act for the last completed financial year, and the amounts paid for administration, sickness and other benefits, and remuneration to doctors; and what was the balance on the year's working and the total amount at the credit of National Health Insurance fund?

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Health (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill.: New Clause. — (Extension of 10 and 11 Geo. V., c. 17, to houses in respect of which certain grants have been or shall be made.) (8 Dec 1920)

Sir Charles Edwards: I beg to move, "That the Clause be read a Second time." I am afraid that what was said by the hon. and gallant Member, representing the Government, just now in reference to new Clauses does not give us very much encouragement. Paragraph (a) of Cause 1 of this Bill says: This Section shall not apply to any house erected after or in the course of erection on the 2nd day of April, 1919. The...

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Health (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill: Clause 3. — (Amendment of Section 5 of 9 & 10 Geo. 5, c. 99.) (8 Dec 1920)

Sir Charles Edwards: I find myself in conscientious disagreement with my hon. Friend belonging to the same party as myself. I opposed this in Committee, and found myself alone, so far as my own people were concerned, and I am in the same position to-night. If a Division is taken, I shall certainly support the Amendment. The point of municipal building as against private enterprise does not touch the question at...
