Orders of the Day — Despatch of Troops to China. (8 Mar 1927)

Sir George Butler: I think the House owes a great debt of gratitude to the last speaker, in that, at the beginning of his speech, he put the negotiations in the forefront of our thoughts. Far better than party recrimination, or even than claiming virtue for one's own party, is it to think of that small band of Englishmen out there, charged with one of the most difficult diplomatic negotiations that a servant of...

GREAT WESTERN RAILWAY BILL (By Order). (24 Feb 1927)

Sir George Butler: I would like to associate myself with the remarks of the hon. and learned Member for Basset-law (Sir E. Hume-Williams) who, it seems to me, has constituted himself the watch dog in this matter. There must be many Members of the House who, like myself, if and when they undertake a Channel crossing, will have the initials "E.H.W." painted in large white letters on their bags. There was one...

GREAT WESTERN RAILWAY BILL (By Order). (24 Feb 1927)

Sir George Butler: I was hoping to return to that subject very quickly by saying that for these companies to accept the privileges they have without recognising a corresponding duty to the public whom they convey, is to misunderstand the whole situation and the privileges which they enjoy. I hope that as a matter of conscience, if nothing else, the directors of the Southern and Great Western Railways will take...

Orders of the Day — Palestine and East Africa Loans [Guarantee]. (1 Dec 1926)

Sir George Butler: While I must confess that there were very many parts of the hon. Member's speech with which I profoundly and cordially disagree, there was one point which I think a good many Members on this side of the Committee may share in common with him, and that is, a certain questioning as to the wisdom of the delay which has been shown in acting upon what he terms the "Ormsby-Gore Report." It is not...

Orders of the Day — Clergy Pensions Measure, 1926. (3 Aug 1926)

Sir George Butler: I wish so put one point on behalf of many of my constituents who have written to me. I think my Noble Friend has given overwhelming arguments why we should not accept this Motion for the adjournment, and should proceed with the matter. It is not right to represent, and my Noble Friend did not represent, the fairly large number of clergy throughout the country as a merely ignorant or...

Orders of the Day — Board of Education. (22 Jul 1926)

Sir George Butler: Before the right hon. Gentleman leaves that point, could not the Noble Lord tell us just what he is going to do in this matter, because a great many of us are extremely interested in it, and what is the use of discussing a hypothetical case?

Civil Services and Revenue Departments Estimates, 1926–27.: India Office. (20 Jul 1926)

Sir George Butler: Like several other speakers this evening, I heard with great interest, the more optimistic picture of the political conditions in India. But my noble Friend very wisely, as it seemed to me, warned us not to think that political problems had passed away. Is it possible that they have to some extent broken up, and that behind what were the primary problems of a. year or two ago are now being...

Orders of the Day — Economy (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill.: Clause 5. — (Transfer from Navy, Army, and Air Force Insurance Fund to Exchequer.) (14 Apr 1926)

Sir George Butler: I think of all the parts of the speech of the right hon. Gentleman who has just spoken, and who always speaks with great authority on matters of organisation of government, that which appealed to me most and that. with which he was in greatest agreement with the right hon. Baronet the Member for the Scottish Universities (Sir H. Craik) were those parts in which he was most human, for I...

Orders of the Day — Anglo-Iraq Treaty. (18 Feb 1926)

Sir George Butler: When last December I had to vote upon this subject, I confess it was not primarily the question of the attitude of the League of Nations which determined my vote. I remembered that, as far as one can find out, in the last 10 years on no less than J3 definite occasions, the most responsible Englishmen had made utterances which it was impossible to translate in any other way, than as declaring...

Orders of the Day — Tithe Bill. (19 Nov 1925)

Sir George Butler: I want to keep the House one minute only in the endeavour to remove the impression left by one word said by the Secretary for War. He said it was only £5,000 a year spread out among the colleges. I ask the House to try to adjust their conception to the sort of difficulty we are up against in Cambridge. I could tell the House of the extraordinarily narrow margin on which some of the smaller

Oral Answers to Questions — Coal Mining Industry.: House of Commons (Lobby Pavement). (3 Aug 1925)

Sir George Butler: 21. asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Home Department, as representing the First Commissioner of Works, whether, in view of the fact that the tiles of the paving in the Members' Lobby, particularly in close proximity to the door of the House of Commons Chamber, have worn to a slipperiness that is dangerous, he will take some steps to make the surface safer?
