Orders of the Day — Supply.: Revenue Buildings. (3 Mar 1920)

Sir Charles Edwards: Yes, he said he had no objection, but what could that mean? I am surprised that he did not object.

He mot a deputation a few weeks ago from the local authorities, and the Prime Minister said—I...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Revenue Buildings. (3 Mar 1920)

Sir Charles Edwards: I beg pardon, I was taking the whole of the heading. But that is not material to my argument that there are sufficient wooden buildings which housed large staffs during the war and that might be used for' many years to come.

Member said that we could not...

Coal Mines (Emergency) Bill.: Clause 1. — Distribution of Profits of undertakings. (18 Mar 1920)

Sir Charles Edwards: I think the coal owners ought to be satisfied with the five years' pre-war profits. They are the best five years they ever saw—five years when there was no control of the industry.

Coal Mines (Emergency) Bill.: Clause 1. — Distribution of Profits of undertakings. (18 Mar 1920)

Sir Charles Edwards: I think I was arguing to the point, Mr. Deputy Speaker, and proving that the colliery owners did not deserve the consideration that the Government proposals give them.

The Government ought to pay more attention to the needs of the community,...
