Sir Charles Edwards: I should like to join in expressing cur indebtedness to the right hon. Gentleman (Sir B. Horne) for the lucidity with which he has explained the provisions of the Bill and the spirit with which he has dealt with them.

Orders of the Day — Industrial Courts Bill. (6 Nov 1919)

Sir Charles Edwards: They are very different problems. Anyhow the original draft of the Bill proposes to make arbitration more-definite and compulsory.

My advice to him at that moment would have been to say, "I profoundly respect the sincerity of your views but I am going to consult the great mass of the workmen...

Orders of the Day — Industrial Courts Bill. (6 Nov 1919)

Sir Charles Edwards: The position is not quite clear. As there is free and unfettered discretion left to the Minister of Labour to adopt any of the provisions of the Arbitration Act of 1889, would it not be competent, therefore, for the right hon. Gentleman's successors to adopt the whole of the provisions of that Act, and thereby make the awards of the Arbitration Court enforceable as though they were a judgment...

Sir Charles Edwards: I listened with great interest to the speech of the right hon. Gentleman to-day. He thanked hon. Members for having assisted him in getting housing going in their constituencies.

Gentleman a short time ago, asking mo to get the housing going in the urban areas m my...
