Oral Answers to Questions — Post Office.: Broadcast Receiving Licences. (10 Mar 1925)

Sir Ian Fraser: Will my right hon.

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Ex-Service Men. (2 Apr 1925)

Sir Ian Fraser: The hon. Gentle man has severely indicted the, Prime Minister for having given a pledge which he claims is almost unconstitutional and is out of order. I suggest that the Leader of a party is entitled to give whatever pledges he pleases, provided he feels fairly confident that his party will follow him when a difficulty arises and the time comes. Towards the close of his remarks the hon....

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Ex-Service Men. (2 Apr 1925)

Sir Ian Fraser: Six months ago this confederation was meeting together to discuss a matter on common ground—namely, wages and such conditions—and then the Treasury made an inquiry as to what was the number of persons represented by those various associations. The figures returned were, I understand, agreed by all sides, and they show that, out of 21,300, I think it was, who were represented by the...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Ex-Service Men. (2 Apr 1925)

Sir Ian Fraser: I did not say that a separate agreement was concluded; I said the right hon. Gentleman endeavoured to arrive at an agreement with them. At any rate, as I understand, every Government for the last few years has negotiated with these people. I would submit one other point before passing on to other criticism, and it is this. I do not think anyone in this House criticised the suggestion, and I...

Orders of the Day — Blind Persons Bill (8 May 1925)

Sir Ian Fraser: The hon. Member who moved the Second Reading of this Bill said this was not a party Measure. With all sincerity I say that I wish that I could take that view of it. I hope a e shall in the end be able to deal with this question in a manner which is not party In the few remarks which I am going to make I shall try to secure that end. This Bill must be a party Measure when we reflect that it...

Orders of the Day — LONDON COUNTY COUNCIL (MONEY) BILL. (By Order.) (25 Jun 1925)

Sir Ian Fraser: May I join in the words of appreciation which have been uttered in regard to the speech of the hon. Member for the Kennington Division of Lambeth (Mr. G. Harvey). I had the pleasure of being his colleague across the water for some time, and I am glad I have had the opportunity of hearing his valuable contribution to our Debate. There appears to me to be two or three points which have been...

Orders of the Day — Contributory Pensions Bill (30 Jun 1925)

Sir Ian Fraser: The Committee may rest assured that I shall not stand long between the right hon. Gentleman and the Committee. I have one point to make, and I will make it briefly. The hon. Member for Goyan (Mr. Maclean) tried to suggest that these pensions were inadequate by comparison with the pensions paid to ex-service men and their dependants, and he sought to make the argument that if the Minister of...

Orders of the Day — Contributory Pensions Bill.: Clause 24. — (Provision against double pensions.) (14 Jul 1925)

Sir Ian Fraser: I do not desire to enter into a long argument upon this case or the Amendment, because the case has been very clearly put. I want merely in a very few words to deny as emphatically as I can the allegation that the proposal which the Minister has made is either disgraceful or mean, or not put forward with the best possible intentions. It must be plain that there is a difficulty, and that the...

Orders of the Day — Supply. (20 Jul 1925)

Sir Ian Fraser: I want to add my appeal in reference to the penny post. I do not propose to argue upon that point, because I am certain that all the advantages which the penny post would give to commerce and industry are present in the mind of the Postmaster-General. I would only touch upon one-aspect of the subject, which has not at present been mentioned, namely, the immense advantages of Imperial penny...

Oral Answers to Questions — Ex-Service Men.: Admiralty Hydrographic Draughtsmen. (23 Nov 1925)

Sir Ian Fraser: Does not that mean that if these men have failed to obtain permanent positions, they will be dismissed, and, if so, may not that be regarded as a breach of the pledge given by the Government to these men?

Claims of Ex-Naval and Military Civil Servants. (9 Mar 1926)

Sir Ian Fraser: I cannot help rising to register a small protest against the suggestion of the hon. Member for Mossley (Mr. Hopkinson) with regard to the duty of the State or a municipality in the matter of the employment of its servants. One realises the logic of his argument One realises that he allows the private person, as indeed he must, to employ whom he likes as he likes, and that so far as the State...
