Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Navy.: Ship's Fuel (Pulverised Coal). (11 Jul 1928)

Oral Answers to Questions — Coal Industry.: Ships' Fuel (Pulverised Coal). (5 Jul 1928)

Sir Charles Edwards: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the authorities refused to allow experiments of this kind on board an old man-of-war, because they fear the success of the experiment when compared with oil, and will the President of the Board of Trade, as chief of the Mines Department, inquire into this matter?

Sir Charles Edwards: I beg to move, "That the Debate be now adjourned."

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Ministry of Labour. (30 Apr 1928)

Sir Charles Edwards: I do not want to take up much of the time of the Committee, but I do want to correct one or two statements with which I do not agree and which I think are not quite true. Those statements were made by the hon. Gentleman the Member for Whitehaven (Mr. R. Hudson), who said that there were young men who refused to go to these training centres. But the hon Member did not tell the Committee why...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Ministry of Labour. (30 Apr 1928)

Sir Charles Edwards: The statement was that young men stayed at home and refused to work.

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Ministry of Labour. (30 Apr 1928)

Sir Charles Edwards: There must be some good reason for that. My experience is that men are only too anxious to get work. I do not know anything about the system at Whitehaven.

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Ministry of Labour. (30 Apr 1928)

Sir Charles Edwards: My experience has been that the men are only too anxious to get work. Then the point was made that men who have been brought up in agriculture and are now in other jobs should be compelled to go back to agriculture. But if a man is doing well in his job, if he knows his job and is satisfied with it, I see no reason why he should be compelled to leave it. If the inducements of agriculture were...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Ministry of Labour. (30 Apr 1928)

Sir Charles Edwards: I support emigration if everything is right. Not long ago I received a report from an Australian about a special scheme being inaugurated in Australia for settling men on farms of 1,000 acres each. It seemed to me an excellent proposition, and I was very favourably impressed with it. I questioned this Australian gentleman about the scheme, which has the Australian Government behind it, and he...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Ministry of Labour. (30 Apr 1928)

Sir Charles Edwards: What the hon. Member stated is quite opposite to my own experience. I look upon the Transference Board as useless, because the unemployed men are quite ready to go to any district where they can find employment. If we could only discuss this question of unemployment in the same way as we discussed the Prayer Book, without any party feeling, I am sure we should be able to find a solution. When...

Oral Answers to Questions — Government Departments.: Department of Scientific and Industrial Research. (28 Feb 1928)

Sir Charles Edwards: 46. asked the Prime Minister whether, seeing that the Department of Mines is to be continued, he will now arrange for the transfer of the Research Department from the Board of Education to that Department, so that, as far as possible, every phase of mining, and especially one of such importance as this, may be under one Minister who shall be responsible and answerable to this House for its...

Civil Estimates, Supplementary Estimates, 1927.: Poor Law Act, 1927. (28 Feb 1928)

Sir Charles Edwards: I beg to move, That an humble Address be presented to His Majesty praying that the Order, dated 20th January, 1928, entitled the Bedwellty Union (Default) Orders (Continuation) Order, 1928, be annulled. I quite agree that it is inconvenient to discuss these prayers at this time of the evening, but I am hoping that this Prayer will be answered and that it will not be necessary to discuss it...

Orders of the Day — Unemployment. (19 Dec 1927)

Sir Charles Edwards: We are discussing this subject in a very thin House, and one cannot help comparing the proceedings of this evening with the interest and enthusiasm aroused by the Debate on the Prayer Book Measure on Thursday last, when these benches were full from the time the House opened until it closed. I consider we are to-day discussing one of the most urgent matters that could be considered by any...

Orders of the Day — Unemployment. (19 Dec 1927)

Sir Charles Edwards: I am much obliged, Sir, for your correction. I thought if I referred merely to the "other place" it would get over any difficulty. However, the comparison was one which impressed me, and I think, at least, as great interest should be taken in the subject now under discussion as was taken in the subject of last week's Debates. We are not discussing a new problem. One would think from what the...
