Orders of the Day — Procedure Rules.: Government Proposals. (19 Feb 1919)

Mr Bonar Law: If I may be allowed to say so, on behalf of the Government responsible for the proposals, I think there has been quite enough, general discussion, and that we should proceed to the Amend- ments. If the right hon. Baronet will pardon me for saying so, I think the form, in which he has moved his Amendment is very characteristic of him, for the object of my right hon. Friend would appear to be...

Clause 1. — (Power to Prolong Period of Naval, Military, or Air Force Service.) (25 Mar 1919)

Colonel Josiah Wedgwood: We have got to recognise, and the Government have to recognise, that the working classes of this country are in an extremely anxious state of mind. I have been speaking at anti-Conscription meetings all over the country, and I can assure the Government that the one thing the people are mostly anxious about is what they call industrial conscription. They are afraid, judging from the examples...

Oral Answers to Questions — Food Supplies.: S.S. "berwick Castle." ( 9 Apr 1919)

Mr Ernest Pretyman: ...to repatriate a large number of commissioned officers of the South African Contingent on the steamship "Berwick Castle" on the 10th instant; whether many of the bunks are destitute of all privacy and are fitted up in the hold of the vessel; whether the smoking and recreation room accommodation provides for only fifty of about 700 officers, and whether the accommodation provided is wholly...

Orders of the Day — East India Revenue Accounts. (22 May 1919)

Mr Edwin Montagu: Under Part I. of the Act he has legal assistance, but under Parts II. and III. there is no legal assistance. This is not a Law Court but a committee of inquiry. It is more like a body of schoolmasters investigating trouble in a school, a committee of a club using its friendly services for the purposes of inquiry; some body to explore all matters, some body to see that injustice is not done,...

Orders of the Day — Dogs' Protection Bill.: Clause 1. — (prohibition of Experiments upon Dogs.) (23 May 1919)

Mr John Rawlinson: This Amendment, as has been pointed out, raises what is really, and practically a Second Reading Debate on the Bill. The real test of the Amendment is first: what the effect of the Amendment is; and secondly, what the result will be of the Amendment of that. The Amendment proposes to put further restrictions on the vivisection of dogs. If the Amendment is not carried, the Bill as it stands...

Orders of the Day — Discharged Soldiers (Employment).: Demonstration at Westminster. (28 May 1919)

Colonel L. WARD: I rise to intervene in this Debate, and in doing so I address the House for the first time. If it were not that I am pledged up to my eyes, I may say, on a subject like this, I would much rather remain silent. I ask for that patience and tolerance which it is customary to extend to a new Member. I intervene in the Debate for a reason that was mentioned by the hon. Member for...

Orders of the Day — Public Expenditure ( 4 Jun 1919)

Mr Frederick Banbury: I beg to second the Motion. My hon. Friend says, quite truly, that the curtailment of expenditure is never a popular thing to recommend, and he suggests that we should begin by looking at home. I have been a good many years in the House of Commons, and I have always found that the majority of Members of the House if you meet them outside or in the Smoking Room are all very anxious for...

Orders of the Day — Government of India Bill. ( 5 Jun 1919)

Mr Thomas Bennett: ...will claim that it has been a success, but anyone who has had any large acquaintance with the Indian members of the various local administrations, or with the subordinate members of the judiciary and members of the legal and medical profession in India who have had their training and their teaching entirely in Indian universities will say that they have been a complete failure. I do not...

Supply. — [16TH Allotted Day.]: Postmaster-General's Statement. (17 Jul 1919)

Mr Herbert Spender-Clay: ...Department has not got a Friend in the House. Not one good word has been spoken, for his Department. What would happen if the right hon. Gentleman had been presiding at a meeting of business men and shareholders in an ordinary company if he had received such complaints as he had to-day of inefficient work, increased pay, delays in the delivery of letters, and, at the same, time, great...

Orders of the Day — Government of Ireland.: Prime Minister's Statement. (22 Dec 1919)

Mr Henry Croft: The speech which the right hon. Gentleman (Mr. Henderson) has just made renders it a little difficult for hon. Members who had listened to him to understand exactly whether he approved of the Prime Minister's proposal or was against it. The right hon. Gentleman said there were several fundamental objections, but there seemed to be a glimmer of hope at the end of his speech that he was going...

Orders of the Day — Shops (Early Closing) Bill. (19 Mar 1920)

Mr John Campbell: ...honour to represent there is a certain amount of division of opinion, I am convinced that there is a preponderance of opinion in favour of this Bill, especially if the rights of the small traders and of the consuming public are properly safeguarded, as I believe they would be by the powers given to the local authorities under the Bill. The justification of this measure seems to me to be...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Army Estimates, 1920–21. (22 Mar 1920)

Commander Hon. Joseph Kenworthy: ...for the Bridgeton Division of Glasgow (Mr. MacCallum Scott) brought me up He got up early in the Debate, when I think only the hon Member for Govan (Mr. N. Maclean) had spoken from these Benches, and said that every Member who had spoken, with that one exception, had complimented the Government and found no fault at all. He went on to make an attack on certain hon. Members—I do not think...

Orders of the Day — Foreign Affairs. (25 Mar 1920)

Colonel LAMBERT WARD: I have listened with the greatest interest to the remarks which have been made by the right hon. Gentleman the Member for Paisley (Mr. Asquith) and the right hon. Gentleman the Member for the Platting Division (Mr. Clynes), and what I should like to ask them, with regard to the remarks they made about Vienna and Austria, is whether they have been there to see those...

Orders of the Day — Government of Ireland Bill. (30 Mar 1920)

Sir William Davison: ...the new Members of this new Parliament from Great Britain who has so far had an opportunity of addressing the House, in a Debate which has hitherto been carried on exclusively by old Parliamentary hands. I am bound to say, speaking as an ordinary man, that I am somewhat confused with the flood of oratory which we have heard from all sides about this Bill, and I cannot help feeling that...

Orders of the Day — Financial Statement.: Customs and Excise Revenue. (19 Apr 1920)

...in October, but greatly exceeded my original Budget Estimate. The Budget Estimate of revenue for 1919–20 was £1,201,100,000. The actual Exchequer receipts were nearly £138,500,000 more. Customs and Excise gave an increase of £45,500,000 over the Budget Estimate, and £7,000,000 over the Estimate which I gave in October. This increase, which is nearly 20 per cent. over the Budget...

Orders of the Day — Income Tax.: Ways and Means. [19TH April.] (27 Apr 1920)

Mr Frederick Banbury: I did not hear my hon. Friend opposite (Mr. Locker-Lampson) speak to-night, but I have heard him on this subject before, and I have always found his statements were very accurate, and carried very great weight, to my mind at any rate, and I have not any doubt that he has repeated his arguments again this evening. I listened very carefully to the statement made by the Chancellor of the...

Orders of the Day — San Remo Conference.: Profiteering (Amendment) Bill. (29 Apr 1920)

Mr Noel Billing: My remarks were applied to the lack of critical opposition to the Bill, and it was my way of expressing my regret. The hon. Member (Lieut.-Colonel Willey) became almost pathetic at the desire of the Government in any way to control the profits in what I thought was the cotton trade. When I referred to Vacher, I found it was wool. The hon. Member was Assistant-Director of Equipment to the...

Orders of the Day — Schedule.: Dangerous Drugs Bill. (10 Jun 1920)

Mr William Woolcock: I only intervene in this Debate because, with the exception of one of the hon. Members for Norfolk, I am the only person in this House who holds a pharmaceutical qualification, and because for some years it was my duty as secretary of the Pharmaceutical Society to administer the Pharmacy Acts of this country and the laws relating to poisons. I have, therefore, had special opportunity for...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: Clause 8. — (Additional duty on cigars.) ( 6 Jul 1920)

Mr Watson Rutherford: I want to make a few observations upon the ad valorem tax. As one who has had more years' experience in smoking cigars than one cares to remember, and who has had to buy cigars from all parts of the world, it has been a matter for reflection that the best cigars in the world were always to be got in London, and, in spite of the duty being higher, as it was before the War, than anywhere else...
