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

Sir Charles Edwards: I was not going to attempt to discuss in detail the question of particular bodies of troops, but it is quite obvious that this is a matter of vital importance to the future wellbeing of the world. We are now discussing the question whether these overtures are to be seriously entertained or not. One of the grounds upon which it might possibly be entertained is that the policy which has been...

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

Sir Charles Edwards: I was pointing out what has been represented as the better way. What is said is instead of your contemplating giving formal and official recognition to the Bolshevik regime, do something definite and effective, without sacrifice of British lives, to stamp it out, and that opinion goes to the extent that if the Allies will give an undertaking to provide supplies through the Baltic, and take...

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

Sir Charles Edwards: I shall be very glad to give any Member a full list of the Russians with whom I have consulted.

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

Sir Charles Edwards: The House will understand that it would be impossible of my own personal knowledge to give expression to the views to which I have given expression—and I have not attempted to give expression to these views, without the most comprehensive and the most exhaustive consultation with representative Russians and British people who have returned from Russia during the last few weeks. It is...

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

Sir Charles Edwards: On a point of Order. May I submit that there is no hon. Member in this House who has hurled charges at, or who doubts the sincerity of, our representatives in Paris.

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

Sir Charles Edwards: Will the hon. Member allow me to point out that he has had experience in labour negotiations. [HON. MEMBERS: "Speak up!"] It has not been unknown to him, I believe, that in his negotiations he has got his hands strengthened by those whom he represents.

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

Sir Charles Edwards: Does the right, hon. Gentleman mean to imply that, the statement that two American citizens, have come from Russia after interviewing Lenin, and have given an interview to certain delegates to the Peace Conference, are not true, and are of German manufacture?

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

Sir Charles Edwards: I ask the leave of the House to withdraw my Motion.

War Pensions and Grants. (15 Apr 1919)

Sir Charles Edwards: I desire to second this Motion for two reasons. One of them is the urgent need for increasing this payment to the soldiers and their dependants, and the dependants of those who have died. We have just been through an election, and this question was put to every Member who was returned to this House, and they were asked whether they would support an increase of pension to these people or not,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Housing.: Rents, Chepstow. (16 Apr 1919)

Sir Charles Edwards: 34. asked the First Commissioner of Works whether he has received a protest from a conference of the trade unionists of Monmouthshire against the rents charged for the houses recently built by the Government at Chepstow; whether 14s. 6d. per week is being charged there for five-room cottages; and whether he can take action so that the rents of these cottages can be brought down to a figure...

Peace Conference.: Allies' Policy. (16 Apr 1919)

Sir Charles Edwards: Are you supplying them with food?

Peace Conference.: World Going to Pieces. (16 Apr 1919)

Sir Charles Edwards: The Prime Minister, in his speech, dealt very fully with the points that were raised on the Adjournment which I moved last Wednesday, and I should like to say just two things with regard to his statement. First of all, I am perfectly certain that his repudiation of the idea of any recognition of Bolshevism will give gratification among the law-respecting people in the whole of the civilised...

Oral Answers to Questions — Finland.: Recognition of Independence. (6 May 1919)

Sir Charles Edwards: by Private Notice asked the Prime Minister if he can state whether the British Government have come to any decision as the result of the negotiations with regard to the formal recognition of Finland as an Independent Republic, and, if so, what is the decision?

Orders of the Day — Clause 19. — (Power of Contributing to Costs Incurred by Public Utility Societies and Housing Trusts.) (27 May 1919)

Sir Charles Edwards: My experience is altogether opposed to what I have just listened to. I do not believe that, if this Clause is retained in the Bill, there will be built a single house more than if it is left out altogether. I do not agree that houses will be built any more quickly by these public utility societies than by public authorities. In fact, I believe that the opposite will be the case. Public...

Orders of the Day — Clause 19. — (Power of Contributing to Costs Incurred by Public Utility Societies and Housing Trusts.) (27 May 1919)

Sir Charles Edwards: I have not seen those regulations, but anyway, I am putting the public utility societies in the same place as the clubs that we have known so well, and so many of which have existed in different parts of the country. Working men and others would form themselves into clubs to build houses. They did not always live in the (houses themselves, but rented them to other people. Sometimes one of...

Orders of the Day — Clause 19. — (Power of Contributing to Costs Incurred by Public Utility Societies and Housing Trusts.) (27 May 1919)

Sir Charles Edwards: I have not read that, and was not aware of it, but I hope there is something in it, because I know the position of people when they settle down in their houses, knowing that they will be able to enjoy security of tenure. It makes better citizens, and that, I think, is what we are all after. Therefore, I am still in favour of the local authorities doing the work. The public has some control...

Orders of the Day — Clause 19. — (Power of Contributing to Costs Incurred by Public Utility Societies and Housing Trusts.) (27 May 1919)

Sir Charles Edwards: I am talking about a district I know where the work has been done so well by the local authorities, so that there is no mistake in my mind in the view that they are the right people to deal with and grapple with this problem, which I agree with the right hon. Gentleman is an urgent matter.

Oral Answers to Questions — Poland (Massacres of Jews). (3 Jun 1919)

Sir Charles Edwards: 6. asked the Secretary for Foreign Affairs whether he is aware of the massacre of thousands of Jewish men, women, and children in Poland and Lithuania, perpetrated by the new Polish army and instigated by the Government of the new Polish State; and whether he will intervene so as to prevent any further massacres of these people?

Oral Answers to Questions — Housing.: Newport Scheme. (3 Jun 1919)

Sir Charles Edwards: 104. asked the President of the Local Government Board whether he is aware that the Newport Housing Committee have applied for sanction to purchase three sites for housing in the borough but up to now has not received such sanction; and, seeing the urgency of providing houses, will he see that sanction is immediately given so that this authority can proceed with the same?
