Orders of the Day — Communist Prosecution.: Vote of Censure Proposed. ( 1 Dec 1925)

Mr John Simon: ...say, in effect, in another speech, that he can hardly contain himself until the verdict is out, and then he will say what he wishes to say, and in a third speech that what is wanted is a "touch of Mussolini." The Home Secretary is entirely wrong when he quotes the precedent of Mr. Gladstone. What Mr. Gladstone did in 1881 has nothing to do with this. Let us get a bit of history right. What...

Orders of the Day — Coal Mining Industry, Temporary Subvention.: Coal Mining Industry Subvention. ( 6 Aug 1925)

...said: "Be under no misapprehension. We are staying there for four years." Then in defence of the miners he made a better defence than even Mr. Cook, and wound up by saying: "If danger comes, I am Mussolini." That was the brief summary of his views. I only rise to say if there is a Division I will vote for the Government because I believe that under the circumstances of last Thursday no...

Orders of the Day — Contributory Pensions Bill. (15 Jul 1925)

Mr Hastings Lees-Smith: passed against them, then the Minister may annul them. If the Committee will read this Clause, they will see how extraordinary the nature of it is. It is, in fact, what we have called the, Mussolini Clause, and by it the Minister of Health is obtaining wider powers than Mussolini is claiming at this moment in Italy. That is not an exaggeration. In order to explain what I mean by that,...

Oral Answers to Questions — School Leaving Age. (30 Jun 1925)

Mr Benjamin Smith: The industrial Mussolini!

Orders of the Day — Hours of Industrial Employment Bill. ( 1 May 1925)

Mr Thomas Shaw: ..., a Bill was introduced into the House there, but wherever you get militarism, whether in Russia or in Spain, God help you! [An HON. MEMBER: "Or Italy."] AS a matter of fact Italy, under Mussolini, does better than our Government because it is ready to ratify.

Orders of the Day — Air Estimates, 1925–26. (12 Mar 1925)

Mr Carlyon Bellairs: ...that in both those countries the Navy has its own air arm completely under its own control. The only country that has imitated our practice—the French tried it and abandoned it—is Italy. Signor Mussolini has done so for his own reasons. The Italian naval manœuvres were held only last year, and they resulted in a most damaging report in regard to the question of combination between the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Industrial Disputes.: Building Trade. (28 Jul 1924)

Mr John Jones: Is the hon. Gentleman aware that the man responsible for the organisation of the British Fascisti is an ex-Socialist, like Mussolini himself?

Orders of the Day — Supply. — [14TH Allotted Day.]: Foreign Office. ( 7 Jul 1924)

Mr Ramsay Macdonald: ...because conversations had taken place supplementary to the written document—no objection was taken to the form of the invitation sent to her. Here, again, I am authorised to state that signor Mussolini has been good enough to address me through the Italian Ambassador expressing the most profound surprise at the way in which the document has been used and offering to assist in every way...

Orders of the Day — Imperial Preference. (18 Jun 1924)

Mr Herbert Fisher: ...travelling once more over the high ground of abstract economic argument. In point of fact, the really important issue was decided some months ago when the electorate decisively rejected what Signor Mussolini, speaking rather in sorrow than in anger, described as "the terrible electoral platform of Signor Baldwin." Upon that platform few still remain. I am told that my right hon. Friend the...

Orders of the Day — Housing (Financial Provisions) [Money]. ( 3 Jun 1924)

Mr John Wheatley: of the Government and the decision to face whatever consequences ensue. It seems all so very simple. The right hon. Member for Twickenham (Sir W. Joynson-Hicks) has only to don the garb of Mussolini and to strut forth and say to these trade unionists, "Unconditional dilution, or the life of trade unionism!" Does anyone believe that until you have exhausted all the resources of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Air Force.: Italy. (26 Jul 1923)

Mr Samuel Hoare: ...28th March, last, constituted as a separate service, comprising all the naval and military aerial forces of the Kingdom of Italy and its colonies. The High Commissariat for Aeronautics, with Signor Mussolini as High Cmmissioner, has been established as the supreme authority for aeronautics.

Orders of the Day — Expiring Laws Continuance Bill. (17 Jul 1923)

Mr George Lansbury: ...; the Whites and the Fascisti are allowed in. You say you keep the Communists out because they are not democrats, and because they want to overturn in a violent way order over here. Yet you welcome Mussolini here, and people like him, who have done far worse than ever the Bolshevists did in Russia. [HON. MEMBERS: "Oh!"] Yes, far worse. Everybody who knows what has happened in Italy—

Orders of the Day — Ways and Means. (17 Apr 1923)

Mr Herbert Asquith: ...duty in this matter of Debt redemption unless we work steadily up to some such figure as that.£50,000,000, I agree, is a great amount. If the right hon. Gentleman only had the power which Signor Mussolini would have to bind his successors, or to bind future Parliaments and to make this provision for Debt redemption secure against the depredation of financial adventures in the future, we...

Orders of the Day — Special Constables Bill. ( 9 Apr 1923)

Mr Jack Lawson: Britishers, who are proud of our great achievements in the realm of peace and law and order, or we have got to be told immediately that we are not to be trusted if it be the case that the Mussolini method has got to be applied to us, this House can take it for granted that it will inevitably invite the same spirit on the other side. The great masses of the people of this country are...

Russia. (29 Mar 1923)

Mr Charles Trevelyan: ...established there. There are differences even on these benches as to exactly the badness or the goodness of that form of government. There are differences, indeed, on the other side as to whether Mussolini is a hero or a criminal. At the same time, you recognise Mussolini, and if you take a thing, such as that which we have been discussing in the last day or two in this House, you have...

Orders of the Day — CONSOLIDATED FUND (No. 1)BILL.: Ruhr Occupation. (28 Mar 1923)

...would be only too glad if an opportunity were given for a reconsideration of the whole matter from a new point of view and with a new idea of a settlement. It is exactly the same in Italy. Signor Mussolini supported France because France promised him a More prompt and more ample delivery of coal. He has got none, or, if he has got any, he is getting it in pounds avoirdupois instead of in...

Orders of the Day — Defence Forces (Co-Operation). (14 Mar 1923)

Lieut-Colonel John Moore-Brabazon: ...Cabinet, and I am gratified to see the Prime Minister here, because otherwise that message might be difficult to convey. As the Prime Minister is here I draw his attention to the fact that Signor Mussolini, Prime Minister of Italy, considers the Air so important that he has taken over this job in that country. I find it a little difficult to speak at this particular time, because we are...

Oral Answers to Questions — Near East.: Inter-Allied Debts. (27 Nov 1922)

Colonel Josiah Wedgwood: 28. asked the Prime Minister whether any suggestions have been made by either the French Government or by Signor Mussolini to include in the discussion at Lausanne the question of inter-Allied debts; and whether the House can be assured that His Majesty's Government still stand by the Balfour Note on this subject?

Orders of the Day — King's Speech.: Foreign Affairs. (24 Nov 1922)

Mr Edmund Morel: ...I earnestly beg His Majesty's Government to consider, even now at the last moment, inviting the Russian Government to the Lausanne Conference. Apparently from what one reads in the press, Signor Mussolini, the head of the present Italian Government, is of the same opinion. The other point made in connection with the Near Eastern question is this. At this stage it does seem a pity to...

Debate on the Address. (23 Nov 1922)

Mr Shapurji Saklatvala: ...least, protest from this House, if nothing else can be done. Our relationship with Russia is also a subject conspicuous by the absence of any mention. We hear of the revolution in Italy; we hear of Mussolini, the leader of it, and we have seen Mussolini's manifesto. He does not care for the Italian Parliament, nor for the majority in it. He is going to rule the country by 300,000 most...
