Orders of the Day — Ministry of Ways and Communications Bill: Clause 2. — (Powers and Duties.) (1 Jul 1919)

Sir Charles Edwards: I am in sympathy with the observations of the hon. Baronet when he says there ought not to be legislation by Orders in Council. However in this case I do not think there is any suggestion at all that there should be legislation by Order in Council. As a mere matter of common sense in draughtsmanship I do not know why those responsible for this measure have ever put forth the suggestion that...

Orders of the Day — Women's Emancipation Bill. (4 Jul 1919)

Sir Charles Edwards: On a point of Order. Is not the hon. Member dealing with a point which we are to discuss next week, and which is another matter altogether, having nothing whatever to do with the question now before the House?

Orders of the Day — Women's Emancipation Bill. (4 Jul 1919)

Finance Bill.: Clause 1. — (Continuation of Customs Duties Imposed under 5 and 6 Geo. 5. c. 89.) (8 Jul 1919)

Sir Charles Edwards: The discussion which has taken place shows the hypocrisy of the old political parties more than anything else I know of. As long as I can remember—and it is some little time now—the point of the free breakfast table, as it was called, has been one of the most important planks in the platform of the party of progress—a party which I have supported many times. But it was simply an...

Orders of the Day — Coal Output.: Statement by Sir a. Geddes'. (14 Jul 1919)

Oral Answers to Questions — Industrial Situation.: Development Work. (23 Jul 1919)

Sir Charles Edwards: 52. asked the Prime Minister the total sums of money for which sanction has been given by the Coal Controller or the Treasury to the colliery concerns of the United Kingdom for development work or other capital expenditure out of their profits since the institution of the Coal Control; and if he will cause a Return to be presented to this House showing these sums for each individual colliery...

Oral Answers to Questions — Industrial Situation.: Development Work. (23 Jul 1919)

Sir Charles Edwards: Does that mean that this House is to be called upon to vote in favour of increased price for coal without being placed in possession of the aggregate figures under this head? If the right hon. Gentleman cannot give details of the collieries concerned, can he inform the House of the total sum of money which has been sanctioned by either the Coal Controller or the Treasury to be devoted out of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Industrial Situation.: Machinery Foe Coal Prodcction. (24 Jul 1919)

Sir Charles Edwards: 55. asked the Prime Minister whether he will consider the compulsory taking over of certain works, as was found necessary to be done to increase munitions during the War. for the production of colliery requisites such as rails, trams, trucks, machinery, etc., so as to provide facilities for miners to increase the production of coal; and,, if not, will he state what the Government intends to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Housing.: Housing Schemes. (24 Jul 1919)

Sir Charles Edwards: 68. asked the Minister of Health how many authorities, outside the three who were provided with moneys from the Loan Commissioners, have succeeded in securing loans to enable them to commence with their housing schemes; whether he has received any complaints re the difficulty in securing money from private sources, chiefly owing to the pressure and inducements to put money into the Government...

Orders of the Day — Army Estimates, 1919–20.: Supplementary Vote on Account. (29 Jul 1919)

Sir Charles Edwards: I share the view which has just been put forward by the right hon. Gentleman, that it would enormously help the situation if greater publicity in regard to essential facts were given by the Government. I am perfectly certain, from what I know of this problem, that such publicity would produce a state of public opinion in this country which is entirely opposed to the luke warmness, the...

Orders of the Day — Army Estimates, 1919–20.: Supplementary Vote on Account. (29 Jul 1919)

Sir Charles Edwards: I would go so far, as I did in the Debate in April, as to say, if it is necessary, even by military intervention. I do not think that military intervention is necessary, but our position is gravely menaced in the Far East, our position is gravely menaced in India, by this Bolshevik peril, and there is definite information that a good deal of the trouble in Afghanistan has been caused by the...

Orders of the Day — Sea, Land, and Air War Services.: Money Grants by Parliament. (6 Aug 1919)

Sir Charles Edwards: I merely desire in two or three sentences to identify those with whom I am associated with the Resolution that has been submitted by the Prime Minister. I am quite sure that that Resolution and the speech which we have heard absolutely and entirely represent the heart and mind of this House. And I would remind the House that five years ago this week this House was called upon to endorse the...

Orders of the Day — Coal Mines Bill: Clause 1. — (Reduction of Hours of Employment Below Ground.) (7 Aug 1919)

Sir Charles Edwards: There is no provision in the Sankey award that I am aware of for working longer hours for development, so that this is entirely new. If you want to deal with emergencies, it is foolish in the extreme to talk about the Home Secretary giving orders, because a case of emergency has to be decided on the spot, and you cannot give orders from here in cases of that sort. Suppose you had a man buried...

Orders of the Day — Profiteering Bill. (11 Aug 1919)

Sir Charles Edwards: The hon. Member for Farnham (Mr. A. M. Samuel) seemed to assume that the cost of living always followed wages. In fact, it is the opposite that happens. Every demand for increased wages made since the War has been based on the existing cost of living. Our complaint before the War was that the cost of living had gone up and that we sought an increase in wages. I saw a cartoon in a Cardiff...

Orders of the Day — Profiteering Bill. (11 Aug 1919)

Sir Charles Edwards: The demand was made on the then existing cost of living. I find myself in queer company this evening. I am opposing this Bill, but I disagree as much with the Mover and Seconder of the Amendment as I do with the Bill itself. The Mover of the Amendment seemed to think that everything was all right and that the Government and no one need take any notice of profiteering, because there was none...
