Sir Henry Norman: The hon. Member for Carlisle (Mr. Middleton), in his interesting speech to which we have just listened, has touched upon many points, but not upon the one regarding which I desire to address the Committee for a few minutes, namely, the subject of Imperial Wireless. The Postmaster-General's statement to-day is the final announcement of a grave and complete reversal of Government policy. This...

Sir Henry Norman: I beg to move, after the word "August" ["line 20, leave out 'day of June,' and insert 8th day of August'"], to insert Page 2, leave out the lines 27 to 31 inclusive. It is seldom that a Member rising to speak on a contentious matter in this House is able to say with confidence and truth that he is speaking in the name of all of his constituents without distinction of party. In moving the...

Civil Services and Revenue Departments Estimates, 1922–23.: Air Mails. (4 May 1922)

Sir Henry Norman: The Committee appreciates warmly the admirable and able manner in which the Postmaster-General has put his statement before it. After that expression of warm approval, my right hon. Friend will not mind if I confine myself to two minor points of criticism. First, I would like to say a word about that which, after his announcement of reductions, will prove to have been the most interesting...

Oral Answers to Questions — Ladies' Gallery. (7 Jun 1921)

Sir Henry Norman: May I ask whether you, Mr. Speaker, have been able to consider the question of so far relaxing the rules which exclude strangers from the sittings of the House as to allow the wives of Members of Parliament to be admitted to the Ladies' Gallery and Strangers' Gallery? If so, can you now see your way to authorise such a relaxation of the rules?

Orders of the Day — Coal Industry.: Motion for Adjournment. (19 Oct 1920)

Sir Henry Norman: I think it is desirable that someone connected with the coal trade should speak from a standpoint other than that of the miners. I speak only for myself, but with knowledge and constant work and interest in the coal trade I have experience of course of the lives of the colliers and a feeling of perfect sympathy with them. I attach very great weight to the proposals which have fallen this...

Sir Henry Norman: asked the Lord Privy Seal if his attention has been called to the differences of official attitude adopted in the case of officers who made scientific inventions during the War; if he is aware that in some cases these inventions have been, or are about to be, published by the Department concerned for general use, whereas in other cases scientific methods developed by officers during their...

Orders of the Day — Coal Industry (Emergency) Bill.: Debate Adjourned. (11 Dec 1919)

Sir Henry Norman: I beg to second the Amendment for the time being. It has become abundantly evident, as the President of the Board of Trade said in his speech, that this Bill was not introduced because anybody liked it nor has it been introduced because it will do anything to clear up the chaotic state in which the coal industry finds itself. On the contrary it has not a friend in the House, and it is quite...

Orders of the Day — Coal Industry (Emergency) Bill.: Debate Adjourned. (11 Dec 1919)

Sir Henry Norman: I am willing to modify my statement to any extent that may be necessary because of my right hon. Friend's interruption, but I venture to suggest that my statement need not be modified in any substantial degree. There is in all probability a profit—

Orders of the Day — Coal Industry (Emergency) Bill.: Debate Adjourned. (11 Dec 1919)

Orders of the Day — Coal Industry (Emergency) Bill.: Debate Adjourned. (11 Dec 1919)

Sir Henry Norman: Very well, then, in that case the House will take the facts upon that point put as my right hon. Friend states them, and not as I believed them to be. But there is the other point, in regard to Mr. Justice Sankey's Report, that the output of the year will not be 250,000,000 tons; probably it cannot be more than 225,000,000 tons, which again alters the calculation. Thirdly, the 1s. 2d. per ton...

Orders of the Day — Coal Industry (Emergency) Bill.: Debate Adjourned. (11 Dec 1919)

Sir Henry Norman: I will adopt with pleasure my right hon. Friend's word, and I will not say the boom years, but the high water-mark years. I admit fully that the omission of coke and other ancillary enterprises makes the shareholders' position much better, but that apart, I venture with great respect to submit that that argument would really hardly be used by anybody who is familiar with the coal trade. It is...
