Orders of the Day — Coal Industry.: Motion for Select Committee (28 Nov 1919)

Sir Charles Edwards: I am glad to have that figure from the right hon. Gentleman. I have here a letter in which he denies that the Coal Controller or the Inland Revenue have power for any such purpose. Here is the letter: Dear Mr. Edwards,You will no doubt remember the supplementary question which you put to me on 23rd July regarding details of the money sanctioned for capital expenditure for colliery concerns. I...

Orders of the Day — Coal Industry.: Motion for Select Committee (28 Nov 1919)

Sir Charles Edwards: The question I asked was in regard to developments in the nature of capital expenditure. The right hon. Gentleman knew what I was after because I asked him for this information in a written question, and I now get a figure which he says is £250,000. It does not matter whether the figure is £250,000 or whether it runs into a great many millions. It is at any rate money sanctioned for...

Orders of the Day — Housing (Additional Powers) Bill. (8 Dec 1919)

Sir Charles Edwards: That is not the experience up o now.

Orders of the Day — Housing (Additional Powers) Bill.: Clause 1. — (Provision for Payment of Money to Persons Constructing Houses.) (10 Dec 1919)

Sir Charles Edwards: I beg to move, in Sub-section (1), to leave out the words" persons or bodies of persons," and to insert instead thereof the words" local authority or public utility society." It seems a very late hour at which to begin the Committee stage of this Bill, and I would like to observe that if some of us had our way this House would meet not later than 12 o'clock in the day. However, I do not know...

Orders of the Day — Housing (Additional Powers) Bill.: Clause 1. — (Provision for Payment of Money to Persons Constructing Houses.) (10 Dec 1919)

Sir Charles Edwards: I beg to move, in Sub-section (2), after the word" houses" ["in respect of houses"], to insert the words, "the letting of which is placed in the hands of the local authority of the area in which the houses are situated." The object of this is to protect the working classes. If, as we believe, the private builders will build to sell and not to let, then it appears to me that it will only be...

Orders of the Day — Housing (Additional Powers) Bill.: Clause 1. — (Provision for Payment of Money to Persons Constructing Houses.) (10 Dec 1919)

Sir Charles Edwards: I beg to move, in Sub-section (2), after the word" houses" ["in respect of houses"], to insert the words (a) In respect of which an undertaking is given that the rental, exclusive of the rates and taxes ordinarily borne by the tenant, shall not exceed thirty pounds per annum for a period of twenty years after completion. I think that is a very plain Amendment, and does not need arguing. If...

Orders of the Day — Housing (Additional Powers) Bill.: Clause 1. — (Provision for Payment of Money to Persons Constructing Houses.) (10 Dec 1919)

Sir Charles Edwards: I beg to move, in Sub-section (2), after the word "Minister" ["and if the Minister is satisfied"], to insert the words "after hearing and considering any statement of the local authority." I submit that this is a reasonable, common-sense Amendment, free from all suspicion or any limiting ideas such as we have been charged with before. The Clause permits the Minister to grant a certificate to...

Orders of the Day — Housing (Additional Powers) Bill.: Clause 1. — (Provision for Payment of Money to Persons Constructing Houses.) (10 Dec 1919)

Sir Charles Edwards: If that is intended, what is the objection to putting these words in? The builder himself might satisfy the Minister. There is nothing to say that he shall appeal to the local authority, and these simple words cover that point and make it plain. Amendment negatived.

Orders of the Day — Housing (Additional Powers) Bill.: Clause 7. — (Powers of Borrowing for Purpose of Housing Acts.) (10 Dec 1919)

Sir Charles Edwards: I beg to oppose the Clause. We believe that it is impossible to raise these loans locally. From the beginning, local authorities whose rateable value is over.£200,000, were told that they must raise loans locally. Some I know have tried and failed. I do not think there is a single local authority in this country that has raised a sufficient loan to carry out its building projects. I do know...

Orders of the Day — King's Speech.: Coal Mines (Nationalisation). (11 Feb 1920)

Sir Charles Edwards: I must say I am amazed at the effrontery displayed by some hon. and right hon. Gentlemen who have been speaking in favour of private enterprise as against nationalisation. If we had relied on private enterprise during the war the war would have been lost. Private enterprise failed absolutely, and we had to take over many things, arid yet so close after the war people talk as if private...
