...that now, but I would like to come back to it in a few minutes. May I now state, as briefly as I can, what liabilities we are under?

Mr William Redmond: ..., he is not going to be a North or a South of Ireland man. Hon. Gentlemen will not accept the Boundary Commission, for the very good reason that any impartial chairman, take him from Timbuctoo or Hong Kong, who has any nous, any intelligence, any sense of justice, could not but divide the country—if division is at all possible, which I myself very much doubt—differently from the way it...

Imperial Conference. (17 Jun 1921)

...Asia are of very pressing importance. I do not know whether it is sufficiently realised that we have troops in Silesia, in Constantinople, in Palestine, in Mesopotamia, in India, and in China at Hong Kong.

I would point out that...

Any firm or company whose credit is worth anything can get their shipments financed to any part of the British Emipre—any firm which has goods to ship to Australia, India, Hong Kong, Ceylon, the Straits Settlements, or North Borneo even which is not so well provided with banking facilities, or South Africa.
