Debate on the Address. (11 Feb 1919)

Colonel Josiah Wedgwood: The Noble Lord is usually an apostle of the doctrine of liberty in this House, but to-day he exasperates me and all of us by bringing forward a defence of the loaves and fishes of the Church of England. Surely there was no occasion more important in the history of this country for sound advice such as he could give to new Members on the principles of liberty and political economy, and it is...

Orders of the Day — Imperial Productive Enterprise. (13 Feb 1919) the British House of Commons are trustees of an estate of untold wealth." The wealth is untold, and I want to use those resources not only for the production of wealth, but as a weapon in the defence of our working classes that we have heard so much debated in the last two days. I know no means of fighting the battle for labour and the safeguarding of the wage limit if you have no...

King's Speech.: Agriculture. (14 Feb 1919)

Mr Henry Cautley: ..., the price has never got anywhere near the figures I have named as fixed in the Corn Production Act. The Government, in order to protect the consumers, fixed a maximum price for cereals under the Defence of the Realm Act. The existing controlled price, which has been in operation for some time, taking wheat alone—I only propose to deal with wheat, the other cereals vary in...

Oral Answers to Questions — Food Supplies.: Allotment Holders' Tenure. (17 Feb 1919)

Mr Arthur Griffith-Boscawen: Yes, that is the position. As regards land acquired by the Board under the Defence of the Realm Act and the Corn Production (Amendment) Act, the Board intend to retain possession of land taken for allotments for a period of two years from the end of the War, unless they are satisfied that the land is urgently required for building or other special purposes, or, secondly, where the...

Aerial Navigation Bill. (17 Feb 1919)

Mr. DENNISS: Yes, every word of it. The other Act was in 1913 which brings under the Defence of the Realm Act the coastlines and territorial waters of the realm. This is not a Bill to legalise military flying because that has already most elaborate provision. The object of this Bill is to deal with commercial or civilian aircraft, and that being so, I look at this measure with a great deal...

Housing.: Notices to Quit. (17 Feb 1919)

Mr Arthur Hayday: ...their agents and saying that the agents have preferred this advice to them. The men who went from these homes and left their wives and children behind; the parents who sent their sons did so in defence of the homeland and of the homes of England. They did so in defence of the womankind, not expecting that the Government, by its inactivity, was going to make all their fighting in vain and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prisoners (Public Defender). (18 Feb 1919)

Mr Edward Shortt: Provision is already made under the Poor Prisoners Defence Act for supplying such prisoners as require it, with legal assistance at the public cost, and I am not aware of any sufficient ground for altering those provisions.

Oral Answers to Questions — League of Nations. (20 Feb 1919)

Mr George Balfour: ...(1) whether the composition of the proposed League of Nations will be such that no combination of small or recently hostile Powers therein shall be able to control British means of national defence or lawful commercial enterprise or expansion, and (2) whether care will be taken to prevent the proposed League of Nations from having power, by the votes of a majority of non-British members,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Courts of Law (Gratuitous Professional Assistance). (20 Feb 1919)

Mr Gordon Hewart: .... Member's question refers to criminal or to civil procedure. If it refers to the former, means exist whereby poor prisoners can obtain professional assistance gratuitously under the Poor Prisoners Defence Act, 1903, and, failing this, by the direct action of the judge trying the case. If it refers to the latter, a system was established some four years ago whereby poor persons can obtain...

Oral Answers to Questions — War Legislation (Orders Rescinded). (20 Feb 1919)

Mr Carlyon Bellairs: 72. asked the Prime Minister, in view of the multiplicity and complexity of the Orders which were issued under the Defence of the Realm Act and other war legislation, whether he will direct the Departments to issue explanations of the Orders rescinded, when such Orders are rescinded in order to assist the public?

Oral Answers to Questions — Capital Issues Committee (Reconstitution). (20 Feb 1919)

Mr Stanley Baldwin: ...the development of public utility services, an adequate share of the capital which is available for investment, and to prevent any avoidable drain upon the foreign exchanges. A Regulation under the Defence of the Realm Act will accordingly be made forthwith, prohibiting fresh issues, except under licence. The enlargement of the purpose for which it will be proper to allow fresh issues may...

Orders of the Day — Procedure Rules.: Standing Order 1. — (Sittings of the House.) (20 Feb 1919)

Mr T.P. O'Connor: ...remember, the night of 3rd August, 1914, when Sir EdwardGrey made the speech which was practically a declaration of War against Germany. Some people forget that the first speech that was made in defence of that policy was made from these benches by the late Mr. Redmond. He got very little thanks. The Prime Minister, I suppose, had brought to his attention the observation of Mr. Herbert...

Oral Answers to Questions — Housing.: Notices to Quit. (24 Feb 1919)

Major NEWMAN: 57. asked the Prime Minister whether he can give a pledge that, by legislation or regulation under the Defence of the Realm Act, the hardship now threatened to the middle classes by eviction from or sale of the houses they occupy will be dealt with before 25th March?

Oral Answers to Questions — Military Service.: India and Eastern Stations. (25 Feb 1919)

Mr Winston Churchill: the tropics during the hot weather. In India it is of vital importance that a sufficiently strong garrison shall be maintained to ensure the preservation of internal order and to provide for the defence of the frontier. The British garrison is now being reduced to what is considered to be a bare sufficiency for these purposes. This will enable some thousands ofmen to be withdrawn at...

Orders of the Day — Coal Industry Commission Bill.: Clause 4. — (Disclosure of Confidential Information.) (25 Feb 1919)

Mr Edward Shortt: ...." These words are necessary because there are other methods by which secrecy is obtained apart from those that are mentioned in the Clause. For example, there are certain regulations under the Defence of the Realm Regulations and so on. The intention of these words is to ensure that nothing which gives secrecy as a matter of right shall be omitted from the powers of this Commission. This...

Oral Answers to Questions — Internment Regulations. (26 Feb 1919)

Mr Jeremiah MacVeagh: 63. asked the Lord Privy Seal whether, as there is no power to intern persons under the Defence of the Realm Act unless in cases of actual invasion or of urgent military necessity arising out of the late War, he will state under what authority subjects are still interned?

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Health Bill. (26 Feb 1919)

Mr Walter Elliot: ...Bill is a splendid thing and ought to have the hearty support of the House. Its greatest defect seems to be that it cuts out this Medical Research Committee and I should be very glad to hear some defence from the President of the Local Government Board, because as yet no adequate defence has been brought before the House.

Oral Answers to Questions — MR. Phillips Price. (27 Feb 1919)

...the "Manchester Guardian," now editing a Bolshevist newspaper for circulation among British troops, receives an income from his estate in Gloucestershire; and whether he will take steps under the Defence of the Realm Acts to prevent this money being transmitted abroad for the purpose, of inciting British troops to mutiny?
