Orders of the Day — Federal Devolution. ( 3 Jun 1919)

Mr William Ormsby-Gore: ...and not to confine themselves to the terrible and sad trouble which the Irish question had got into owing, if I may say so, to the mishandling of a series of Parliaments. I want to recall to the House that we are debating here and now a question of vital urgency, because Parliamentary government is being questioned where Parliamentary government has never been questioned before. Unless we...

Orders of the Day — Land Settlement (Scotland) Bill (15 Aug 1919)

Mr Robert Munro: ..., there are provisions relating to the enlargements of existing holdings and common grazings. The law regarding these matters is amended in certain particular, with which I need not delay the House at this stage. Finally, in this connection, in Clause 12, the House will find a very important power conferred upon the Board. The Board may, with the approval of the Secretary for Scotland and...

Hague Conference. (26 Jul 1922)

Mr John Murray: ...blame and accusation against the Government. This is the problem of helping a nation. The prime condition of the beginning of that help in effective ways is confidence. From the Labour side of the House there come accusations against the Government that the British nation, British policy and the British Government are solely responsible for the lack of confidence in this matter. I would...

Irish Free State (Consequential Provisions) Bill.: Clause 3. — (Establishment of a Trust for the provision of cottages, etc., for? ex-serrice men in Ireland.) (28 Nov 1922)

Mr Arthur Hayday: ...Department. I move this Amendment in order to remedy what has obviously been an oversight in making, for the men referred to, some provision equal to that of ex-service men who were in the Army or Navy or Air Force, so far as housing is concerned. I was hoping that the Government would accept the Amendment without much being said in support of it. We have to remember the position with...

Orders of the Day — Subversive Propaganda. (21 Apr 1926)

Mr Thomas Fenby: I beg to second the Amendment. I am sometimes amazed at the subjects upon which the time of this House is very often wasted. We have heard to- night a good deal about the word"propaganda," but I think we should apply it to the other side of the House, so far as the besmirching of the party above the Gangway and the belittling of the party which sits below the Gangway on this side in part are...

Orders of the Day — Housing (Financial Provisions) Act, 1924. ( 2 Dec 1926)

Mr Ernest Thurtle: ...case it is all right. The Prime Minister said at the beginning of the Session in regard to another matter that the interest of the nation as a whole must be regarded as supreme. We have got in this housing problem a matter of supreme national importance. It ought to be the duty of any Government, of whatever complexion, to devote all its resources to giving our people fit and proper places...

Orders of the Day — Amendment of Law. (13 Apr 1927)

Mr Ernest Thurtle: ..., and, by doing that, so far from practising economy, you may be guilty of something in the nature of criminal waste. We have items of social expenditure like education, the health services and housing. On this side of the House we contend that money which is spent on the education of the children of the people, in maintaining the health of the great mass of the workers of the country, and...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Army Estimates, 1929. (28 Feb 1929)

Mr Worthington Evans: ...deprived myself of the advantages of surprise by circulating a very full memorandum with the Estimates which, while discounting the interest which may be felt in any speech I might make, has also armed my opponents with the opportunity for criticism. In Vote A, I am asking this year for 150,500 men against 153,500 last year, a decrease of 3,000. Half this decrease is due to the withdrawal...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Mr. BRIDGEMAN'S STATEMENT. (14 Mar 1929)

Mr Charles Ammon: I am sure that the whole House, without distinction of party, will be in agreement with me when I say that it is with great regret that we have learned from the First Lord himself that report speaks only too truly in saying that he has decided, of his own volition and on personal grounds, to take his departure from this House. I know that everyone will very much regret that severance. May I...

Civil Estimates, 1931.: India Office. ( 9 Jul 1931)

Earl WINTERTON: The House in Committee has, on several occasions during the present Session, discussed matters of high moment in regard to constitutional changes in India, and to acts of policy which it is very difficult to discuss apart from legislative changes that are in contemplation or are under discussion. It is, I respectfully submit, most desirable that the Committee this afternoon...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Mr. DUFF COOPER'S STATEMENT. ( 8 Mar 1932)

Mr Duff Cooper: ...why a sergeant should not be a pacifist. It may be difficult to define exactly what a pacifist is, but at any rate he was a Socialist and a representative of his party. He described the Army as an armed police force. In the opinion of Mr. Shaw, the maximum of economy had already been achieved; but within six months of that date the Army Council were asked by His Majesty's Government to...

Orders of the Day — King's Speech.: Debate on the Address. (27 Nov 1934)

Mr Harcourt Johnstone: The speech to which we have just listened seemed to have been addressed to the arguments which were advanced in yesterday's Debate rather than to the Amendment before the House to-day. I must confess to being rather at a loss to gather the reason of my hon. Friend's intervention. Let us hope the reason will be revealed to us later in the year or early next year. The speech of the right hon....

Defence. (11 Mar 1935)

Mr John Simon: ...of this Estimate or that, it is convenient to take an instance to show how impossible it is to resist this conclusion. Take the increased Estimate for the Army—£4,000,000 in all. Would the House be good enough to allow me to state, under three or four heads, how a large part of that Estimate is built up, and then let us judge, all of us, how far it can be reasonably said by respon-...

Orders of the Day — Debate on the Address. ( 4 Dec 1935)

Mr Thomas Johnston: ...pretty fairly the average opinion of hon. Members opposite, I think the Prime Minister has misinterpreted on two vital and major issues the opinion of the majority of his supporters, if not in the House at least in the country. This afternoon we have had a succession of speeches from hon. Members opposite, and without exception everyone has criticised in some form or another what is known...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: MR, Duff Cooper's Statement. (12 Mar 1936)

Mr Duff Cooper: I beg to move, "That Mr. Speaker do now leave the Chair." It will be within the recollection of the House that it fell to my lot only two years ago to introduce the Army Estimates. I then prefaced my remarks by attempting to give some account of what, in my opinion, are the purposes for which the British Army exists. A good deal has happened in the intervening two years, in the realm of...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Territorial Army. (12 Mar 1936)

Colonel Charles Ponsonby: I beg to second the Amendment. In craving the indulgence of the House on making my first speech I may say that I am glad to address the House on this subject because for many years I have been interested in the Territorial Force and am at the present moment in possession of, perhaps, the rather doubtful honour of being the oldest serving officer in the House, anyhow in the matter of age. If...

Orders of the Day — King's Speech.: Debate on the Address. (27 Oct 1937)

Sir Kingsley Wood: ...looking up a few more adjectives in the dictionary, but, as usual, we have had very few constructive suggestions from him. The impression that I gained from his speech was one which, I think, the House generally accepted yesterday, and that is that it is already evident that the Opposition have little or nothing to say in criticism of the substantial Measures in the Gracious Speech....

Orders of the Day — Population (Statistics) Bill. (29 Nov 1937)

Mr Arthur Hayday: ..., and not to offer any explanations or reasons. Why is it that there are not many large families now? Well, I think I can speak with a little knowledge on a matter of this sort, and I can tell the House what was thought on this subject by people of about my age and by my forbears who were responsible for the bringing up of large families. We know that families have been without sufficient...

Orders of the Day — Civil Estimates and Estimates for Revenue Departments, 1938 (Vote on Account). (28 Feb 1938)

Mr Aneurin Bevan: ...colonies and what happens in ours, that our boast about this country being a good coloniser is baseless. The position in Trinidad is that the actual government of the island has not been in the House of Commons, but in a number of propertied interests there who have done what they liked without check or hindrance, and would have continued to do so, had it not been for the speeches and...

Debate on the Address. ( 8 Nov 1938)

Mr Ellis Smith: ...dealt with the engineering industry, because I have been engaged in a capacity which put me in a position to be as well informed about the workers' side of that industry as most people in this House. But I differ from him fundamentally in regard to the first part of his speech, in which he chided, very gently, my hon. Friend the Member for Spennymoor (Mr. Batey) for the statements which he...
