Mr T.P. O'Connor: ...That was a few months before the War, and there was this attendance of 10, mainly cranks, who, instead of discussing the very grave and menacing questions which existed, raised questions concerning Hong Kong and Shanghai which were important in their way but small compared with the policy of the British Empire in view of what was to happen within a few months' time.

Lieut-Colonel Charles Howard-Bury: ..., and whether it has been done with the full consent of the Commander-in-Chief in India? 10.0 P.M.

Why do Mauritius, Ceylon, Hong Kong, and the Straits Settlements pay contributions for the upkeep of the garrisons, whereas Bermuda, Malta, Jamaica and Sierra Leone pay nothing? Why should one pay a contribution and not the...

I want to ask the Committee how the Chinese labourers are in a position to stand up for their rights with, regard to piece-work arrangements when they have been brought 3,000 miles from Hong Kong or China to work in Nauru. There should be some arrangement whereby some arbitration board is appointed or some outside body to whom these Chinese labourers could appeal with regard to...

Orders of the Day — Supply (22 Mar 1923)

Sir Clement Kinloch-Cooke: ...of the ships. Complaint is constantly made that ships are not properly ventilated, and there is a good deal of truth in this contention. We know what happened to the "Vindictus," that went out to Hong Kong the other day. She was overcrowded, and although she had to go through the tropics, was without refrigerators, both the accommodation and the ventilation on the ship was very bad. In...

Sir Park Goff: Imagine the jaundiced eye of a German skipper going from Hamburg to Shanghai when he beholds the Union Jack floating at Dover, at Gibraltar, at Suez, at Aden, at Colombo, at Singapore, and Hong Kong. He would feel inclined to say, like the man who saw a giraffe for the first time at the Zoo, "it simply ain't true." It is an eye-opener to the man who goes out there for the first...

Lieut-Colonel Leo Amery: ...of a fleet of modern capital ships. At present there is no dock in British territory in the East capable of taking a capital ship.
