Orders of the Day — Coal Mines Bill. (28 Jun 1926)

Sir Charles Edwards: The last speaker lamented that bitterness had been introduced into this Debate, but I ask is it any wonder that bitterness should be brought into it? It is no wonder whatever. This is a Bill for which we never asked and which we never intend to operate. Four days are to be given to this Bill. They are four days of Parliamentary time wasted. In face of a stoppage which has already lasted for...

Orders of the Day — Coal Mines Bill. (28 Jun 1926)

Sir Charles Edwards: I used three words, "ordered," "authorised" and "told." I do not see the difference between them.

The coalowners of this country are responsible for the present...

Orders of the Day — Emergency Powers Act, 1920 (Regulations). (29 Nov 1926)

Sir Charles Edwards: I beg to second the Amendment. I, too, was hoping that these Regulations would have been withdrawn altogether, as there is no reason why they should be continued. The Home Secretary made an offer in regard to 80 per cent. of the men being signed on tomorrow, I think it was, but I do not know that he ought to be guided, by the number signing on. The possibility is that a large number of men...

Orders of the Day — Emergency Powers Act, 1920 (Regulations). (29 Nov 1926)

Sir Charles Edwards: Then I will leave that question, but there is a big fuss about the safety men, and I know of colliery companies that have stopped them and told them their services were not required any longer, and that was not such a serious matter as some people seem to think. This Regulation deals with the police and gives them far too great powers. The police are like other people. They magnify their...
