Supply. — [4TH Allotted Day.]: MR. Long's Statement. (12 Mar 1919)

Viscount Curzon: In addressing this Committee for the first time, I hope the Committee will extend their leniency towards me. Like the last speaker, I served in the Fleet throughout the War with the exception of the first two or three months, and I come to this House direct from the ship on which I have been serving. I should like, if I may, to submit a few remarks for the consideration of the Committee which...

Orders of the Day — Supply. [4TH Allotted Day.]: Navy Estimates, 1920–21. (23 Mar 1920)

Mr Walter Long: ...suspicion of that kind except it may be in the Noble Lord's own mind. He is the only person who has ever suggested, either in or out of the House, that the appointment and selection of nags in the fleet is in any way the matter of a job. It is nothing of the kind. We have our Reserve Fleet scattered among the home ports. We have a Commander-in-Chief. The appointment of flag officers to-day...

Orders of the Day — Private Business.: Oyster and Mussel Fishery (Seasalter and Ham) Provisional Order Bill. (30 Jul 1923)

Mr Edward Ruggles-Brise: of the most valuable parts of this industry. No less than 30 to 40 tons have been caught by one boat in one month, and no less than £500 worth of fish has been taken by the Tollesbury fishing fleet in the course of one excursion to these waters. There are about 50 smacks in the fleet, each of which employs three or four men, and it is computed that during the fishing season employment...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Air Force Estimates, 1924–25. (31 Jul 1924)

Viscount Curzon: quite long enough to make up their minds. The time is ripe when the Secretary to the Admiralty must go to his Department and see that a decision is reached. It must not be a decision to rob Peter to pay Paul. I think the rates of pay of junior officers of the Navy are perhaps a little more in some cases than they would require, but do not let us have a marriage allowance on that...

Orders of the Day — Supply (5 Mar 1925)

Captain Ellis Ashmead-Bartlett: ...great departure from the strategy of Marshal Foch, which led to our success in the War, which was concentration under one supreme command. It is a return to the strategy and military tactics of Peter the Hermit, where contingents of armed knights from each country in Europe were allowed to march independently to Palestine to attempt to recover the Holy Grave. It can well be imagined what...

Orders of the Day — Gas Regulation Act, 1920. (5 Aug 1925)

Sir Reginald Neville: ...line of fortifications which were put up by the Romans to protect a peculiarly defenceless part of the coast of England, and, if I may say so, local tradition says it was one place where the German fleet was expected to land if it made any attack at all. In mediaeval times there was a large natural estuary which extended from Caister, on the one side, to a place called Burgh Saint Peter....

Orders of the Day — Air Estimates, 1926–27. (8 Mar 1926)

Sir Harry Brittain: ...for the gander, and if we readily admit them here, I think it only right and fair that they should let us land in the ports of France and continue a seaplane trip, which now only goes as far as Peter port, in Guernsey. But because we have here a difficult climate with only short distances, from the point of view of flying, that must in no way warp our judgment from the point of view of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Fishing Industry.: Port Henry Harbour. (23 Jul 1929)

Mr Robert Boothby: 57. asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether he is aware that application has been made by the trustees of the harbours of Peter-head for advances in order to deepen Port Henry Harbour and to construct a slipway; that the present facilities and accommodation are insufficient for the requirements of the fishing fleet; and will he take steps to provide the necessary financial...

Orders of the Day — Development (Loan Guarantees and Grants) Bill. (23 Jul 1929)

Colonel Albert Ward: endeavouring to resuscitate what are to all intents and purposes moribund industries. An instance was given in an earlier Debate of a port on the East Coast which formerly was the head port of a fleet of trawlers. The fleet has now gone to a harbour which has more natural advantages and is better suited for that undertaking. I sincerely hope no attempt will be made, as was suggested, to...

Tolls Bill. (8 Nov 1929)

Captain Sir Peter Macdonald: toll ferry. I have been delayed time after time when I have been endeavouring to keep an important engagement. There is one toll bridge where I have been held up for 45 minutes, because of a fleet of charabancs coming in both directions meeting at the bridge, and the toll collector being obliged to go over each charabanc in turn and collect the toll from every passenger. In a case like...

Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Navy.: Foreign Navies (Personnel). (10 Feb 1932)

Commander Sir Peter Agnew: ...what is the number of the naval personnel and reserves of the United States, France, Italy, and Japan at the latest available date; and whether he will include such figures in future issues of the Fleets Return?

Civil Estimates, 1932.: Mines Department of the Board of Trade. (5 Jul 1932)

Mr Isaac Foot: ...which there might have functioned friendly negotiating arrangements but, owing to certain objection taken in some quarters, that part of the Act has never achieved what was intended. When Mr. Peter Lee and Mr. Edwards came before us on that occasion, they made certain proposals, and the President of the Board of Trade said they would receive our sympathetic consideration and, as far as we...

Royal Navy (30 Nov 1932)

Mr Bertram Falle: ...can no whisper reach the graveTo make them grudge their death,Save only this—save only this,We they redeemed deny their blood andmock the gains they won. Do we not daily deny their sacrifice? Peter denied three times—and the cock crew! I prefer Paul. Shame on the flame so dying to an ember,Shame on the reed so lightly overset.Have I not seen Him—can I not remember,Have I not known...

Orders of the Day — Illegal Trawling (Scotland) Bill.: Clause 1. — (Penalties for illegal trawling.) (11 Apr 1934)

Mr John Burnett: than there were formerly, I do not admit that it is the depredations of the trawlers that has caused it. We have our experience locally on the north-east coast. We in Aberdeen had a large fleet of line boats, and we had a large population of inshore fishermen. Then the first trawler came to Aberdeen, in 1874. It was unpopular, and trawl fishermen were stoned there. At the beginning of...

Civil Estimates and Supplementary Estimate, 1934.: Fishery Board for Scotland. (20 Jul 1934)

Commander Hon. Archibald Cochrane: ...decay of the industry as we know it to-day. Two inevitable results must follow such a course. First, we shall find that the boats are becoming more and more concentrated in the big harbours like Peter-head and Fraserburgh, and that would be the ruination of the smaller ports. In the second place, the herring drifter industry is peculiar in two respects—the cost of the gear is very high...

Oral Answers to Questions — His Majesty's Silver Jubilee (Celebrations). (15 May 1935)

Captain Sir Peter Macdonald: 9. asked the First Lord of the Admiralty how many officers and men of the Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve, the Royal Naval Reserve, the Royal Fleet Reserve, and from the regular, retired, and emergency lists will be ordered to participate in the Jubilee naval review at Spithead?

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Navy Supplementary Estimate, 1936. (4 May 1936)

Commander Sir Peter Agnew: ...—I claim to look at it from no other point of view, and certainly not from the standpoint of professional skill—I should say that a battleship is the most powerful ship that you have in your fleet and, if circumstances permit, no less powerful than the battleship of any other country. When I say "powerful," I mean efficient in its offensive and defensive powers for the destruction of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Navy.: Mediterranean Fleet. (9 Jul 1936)

Captain Sir Peter Macdonald: Is it not the fact that the British Fleet has been in the Mediterranean for over 300 years and is there any reason why it should be withdrawn now?

Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Navy.: Fleet Air Arm. (18 Nov 1936)

Captain Sir Peter Macdonald: asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether any decision has yet been reached with regard to the desirability of the Admiralty taking complete control of the Fleet Air Arm; and, if not, whether any satisfactory definition has yet been reached so far as the responsibilities of the Navy with regard to its own methods of air defence and attack are concerned?
