Retiring Pensions. (21 Feb 1934)

Sir Charles Edwards: I speak so seldom in the House now that I need not apologise for intervening in the Debate. One might take it for granted after what has been said to-night that there is no hope for the workers whatsoever, that the nightmare of old age must still remain with them and that nothing will be done. I do not believe that. We have had all sorts of figures quoted to-night. The Financial Secretary to...

Retiring Pensions. (21 Feb 1934)

Sir Charles Edwards: It shows how very far removed they are from the actualities of unemployment. I maintain that the proposal is quite possible. It may be that old men are kept on in some cases; but they are not numerous. The trouble to-day is that they are thrown off and they know that if they get out of work at 60 years of age there is no prospect of their ever getting employment again. It is terrible to live...

Retiring Pensions. (21 Feb 1934)

Sir Charles Edwards: In any case, it would be a great advantage to set to work the young man who has more energy and staying power than the man who has done 46 years work can expect to have. Another advantage is that the man who has reached 60 and has done 46 years work is no danger to the future. What of the young man who has never done a day's work in his life and who has learned no craft? He has lost the...

Retiring Pensions. (21 Feb 1934)

Sir Charles Edwards: We had a reply the other day from the Minister of Mines to the effect that there were less than 10,000 on the colliery books just now over 65, but that in June, 1927, there were 80,000. That shows what a number have had to leave that employment. What a prospect for these people who have come out of the mines without any provision for them except perhaps 10s. a week. I have a figure here, but...

Coal Industry (Dispute, Bedwas). (18 Jul 1933)

Sir Charles Edwards: I speak so seldom that I think the House will excuse my referring to a number of people in Cardiff Gaol—sentenced at one of the Assizes for alleged rioting. Before I get to the sentences I ought, perhaps, to describe the position which led up to them. Bedwas is a new place, a very large township. Pits were put down there, and there is a large population at present. The local council...
