Nursing Homes (Registration) Bill.: New Clause. — (Power of Minister to exempt Christian Science nursing homes.) (16 Dec 1927)

Sir Charles Edwards: I believe in giving people the fullest liberty to carry out what their conscience dictates, but, if it is a question of nursing homes which are carried on for the benefit of the public, that is a very different thing, and I think that, if these places are to be carried on as nursing homes, they ought to be definitely under the registration proposed in this Bill. I am still very suspicious. If...

Orders of the Day — Unemployment Insurance Bill.: Clause 4. — (Rates of unemployment benefit.) (23 Nov 1927)

Sir Charles Edwards: Both the Minister and every other Member seem to hold the idea that every housekeeper must be an unmarried wife. We dispute that, absolutely.

There are men whose wives have died, and who have children who want to come and see them...
