Sir Charles Edwards: We have had much advice given to us from the other side, notably the irritating and offensive lecture from the Simon Pure of the House, the Member for Mossley (Mr. A. Hopkinson), who simply squirms in his place when any reply is made to him and leaves the House.

Civil Services and Revenue Departments Supplementary Estimate, 1921–22.: Ministry of Health. (27 Feb 1922)

Sir Charles Edwards: It was just an illustration, but perhaps a long one. I was lamenting the fact that it was necessary for people to apply for poor relief who are able and willing to work.

I cannot imagine the Minister of...

Civil Services and Revenue Departments Supplementary Estimate, 1921–22.: Ministry of Health. (27 Feb 1922)

Sir Charles Edwards: The people on the spot are in a better position to know than anybody in a Government office in London. I say that not with a view to opposing this Vote at all. We believe that the Vote for Maternity and Child Welfare is one which might with advantage be increased, and as far as that particular Vote is concerned we support it. I think we ought to consider more favourably in what way we can...

Sir Charles Edwards: I beg to move, in Sub-section (1), to leave out the words If it appears to the Minister that, having regard to all the circumstances of the case, it is expedient in the public interest that a person, notwithstanding that by reason that he does not satisfy the first statutory condition, or that he is disqualified under Subsection (4) of Section eight of the principal Act for receiving benefit,...

Civil Services and Revenue Departments Estimates, 1922–23.: Houses of Parliament Buildings. (11 Apr 1922)

Sir Charles Edwards: I do not pretend to understand the system of heating and ventilation, but I know it is by no means ideal, and this is the best place for getting a cold I have ever known. Hon. Members speak of cold feet. I can confirm that, and I venture to think that most Members can do the same. There have been several interesting points raised to-day, some of them about the alteration of the Chamber. I...

Civil Services and Revenue Departments Estimates, 1922–23.: Houses of Parliament Buildings. (11 Apr 1922)

Sir Charles Edwards: Whatever Closure is put on is put on after very few speeches. There could be more speeches in that same time if they were curtailed. I have sat here till a quarter to seven on some occasions, and during that time only two speakers have taken part in the Debate. There is no manner of sense in that, whether it is the introduction of a Budget or not. It simply bores people to death There is a...

Workmen's Compensation. (3 May 1922)

Sir Charles Edwards: I am very glad to know that the speeches to-night have been sympathetic to the proposal put before the House.
