Class Ii.: Mines Department of the Board of Trade. (18 May 1922)

Sir Charles Edwards: This is to us a very interesting discussion, and I should be very pleased to follow the hon. Member in the discussion as to lamps, but I cannot. We are asked to be very short, and many of us want to take part, although to those who live in mining districts a short speech is pretty difficult, because the feeling is so high among the people who live there that we meet with it every time we go...

Class Ii.: Mines Department of the Board of Trade. (18 May 1922)

Sir Charles Edwards: The royalties are the same now as before, and there ought to be some relief from royalties. When a man works and cannot pay his way, surely other people ought to share the burden.

Class Ii.: Mines Department of the Board of Trade. (18 May 1922)

Sir Charles Edwards: What we want are markets for manufactured goods. It is said that we must get into touch with our undeveloped colonies. There is one great country that is partially developed and which wants many manufactured articles. If we could get a part of that trade we should be doing more good than looking for markets where we are practically giving away our coal. I refer to Russia. The Government,...

Orders of the Day — LAW OF PROPERTY BILL [Lords]. (16 Jun 1922)

Sir Charles Edwards: We have listened to compliments paid by the learned Solicitor-General, but some of them have been of a very doubtful character and rather what one would call backhanded compliments.

Those cases are of...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: New Clause. — (Mineral Rights Duty.) (28 Jun 1922)

Sir Charles Edwards: This may be a small point, but it is a very great principle, and I am surprised that it has been conceded. Only a day or two ago, when we asked for some abatement for a man going by train to produce those minerals the Chancellor of the Exchequer refused. Now, when it comes to this, the Government give in. On other points, when they have refused, they have told us what the concession would...

Supply. (29 Jun 1922)

Sir Charles Edwards: I wish to bring before the Home Secretary a matter with which I am not sure that he is well acquainted.
