Orders of the Day — Notices of Motion.: Ministry of Ways and Communications Bill. (18 Mar 1919)

Sir Charles Edwards: An hon. Member asks "What quantities?" We are quite up against that formula. Precisely the same quantities. I will tell the hon. Member what happened. When there was a dispute over this, thing, quantity for quantity was taken before the Railway Commission, and the traders won the day. Then what occurred was that the foreign importer was got to alter the shape of the particular box or case so...

Orders of the Day — Notices of Motion.: Ministry of Ways and Communications Bill. (18 Mar 1919)

Sir Charles Edwards: I dare say they did, but I am on those cases that were perfectly well founded. I cound multiply them.

Ministry of Ways and Communications [Money]. (28 Mar 1919)

Sir Charles Edwards: I hope the Committee will not accept this Motion. Quite frankly, I suspect the point of view of the hon.

Gentleman opposite has delivered a speech attempting to show grounds from a purely Parliamentary point of view why this, that, or the other should not be done. I for one, have knowledge, as most...

Ministry of Ways and Communications [Money]. (28 Mar 1919)

Sir Charles Edwards: I am very glad the hon. Member made that observation. As a matter of fact I met some of them in the Chamber of Commerce the day after this spurious agitation exploded in futility, and the Bill got through without a Division. I asked a good many how they came to do this. They said, "We do not know. We were wired to to send telegrams." I asked who had sent the wires. They said they were sent by...

Ministry of Ways and Communications [Money]. (28 Mar 1919)

Sir Charles Edwards: I suppose it was some genius who thought he was entirely representing the mind of the hon. and learned Gentleman, and took upon himself to forge his signature.

I return to my general statement that the hon. and learned Gentleman utilised his position in Parliament to promote an entirely spurious agitation in the country to...

Russia.: Bolshevik Government (Recognition). (9 Apr 1919)

Sir Charles Edwards: I beg to move That this House do now adjourn. The House will appreciate what I am going to say when I state that it has been with the utmost reluctance that I and those associated with me have taken the step of moving the Adjournment of the House to call attention to something which is alleged to be taking place at the Peace Conference. We recognise the tremendous difficulty that lies before...

Russia.: Bolshevik Government (Recognition). (9 Apr 1919)

Russia.: Bolshevik Government (Recognition). (9 Apr 1919)

Sir Charles Edwards: I have never had very much belief either in the judgment or the wisdom, whilst quite respecting the honesty, of the hon. Member, but when he says that this is "anonymous tittle tattle," if he likes I am prepared to give him the names of eye-witnesses, distinguished Englishmen and Russians, whom I am quite sure he would regard as men of truth and veracity, who will give him the evidence from...

Russia.: Bolshevik Government (Recognition). (9 Apr 1919)

Sir Charles Edwards: I am not concerned whether this Report is accurate or not, except as showing that, at all events, the British Government have given a definite official acceptance by the publication of this Report of what in their view is the character of this pestilential evil of Bolshevism, and I was supplementing what was put in that Report by evidence which has come to me from representative Englishmen...

Russia.: Bolshevik Government (Recognition). (9 Apr 1919)

Sir Charles Edwards: What I have to discuss, of course, according to the formal terms of the Motion, is these alleged overtures from Lenin, and I want to use arguments why those overtures should not be contemplated seriously and considered by the plenipotentiaries of this country. I submit that I am entitled in that connection to show that there is a better way, to show the danger of overtures from this kind of...
