Sir Harry Hope: ...into diseases affecting animals in this country we have been in a very backward condition in the past. We know, for instance, what little knowledge we have of diseases such as swine fever or abortion in cattle, all of which do an enormous amount of injury to the production of food.

Land Settlement (Facilities) Bill. (14 Apr 1919)

Major Sir William Prescott: After some abortive attempts to catch Mr. Speaker's eye on the Transport and Housing Bills, I now find myself addressing the House for the first time upon a measure of supreme importance, not merely for the men who saved the country, by their deeds of heroism, but, as has been pointed out by the Minister in charge of the Bill, to that large number of allotments cultivators who are engaged,...

Aliens Restriction Bill (15 Apr 1919)

Sir John Butcher: ...long labour in the form of a real live child worthy of the Home Secretary. [An HON. MEMBER: "Call it Dora!"] We think of the peace, and what do we find? We find that the Home Secretary produces an abortion of a war baby. We want something better than that, and, what is more, I believe the Members of this House insist upon getting something better than that. If there is any matter of...

Sir Martin Conway: ...northern seas, it was sea fishing and not bay fishing that they took part in. They never made any claim for a share in the development or occupation of any part of Spitsbergen. Nevertheless in the abortive conference in 1914 I understand that it was the German claim which was on the whole pushed with the greatest energy, and at that time Germany had the intention of claiming the right to...

Sir Herbert Nield: ...themselves. In 1905 there was a terrible conflict between the two sides in this House over that particular Bill which was very much decimated, but finally passed.

Orders of the Day — SEX DISQUALIFICATION (REMOVAL) BILL [Lords.]: Clause 1 — (Removal of Disqualification on Grounds of Sex.) (27 Oct 1919)

Sir Ellis Hume-Williams: I agree, and I should be satisfied if the Solicitor-General would tell me that these words are not intended to be confined to cases of improper evidence. Then the whole of my Amendments would become abortive. The words "having regard to the nature of the case and the evidence to be given" did seem to suggest that the intention was to confine the discretion of the judge to cases where women on...

Dr Christopher Addison: ...present price, and and when you have built them you are only to let it to this and that person at this or that rent, you will not get any houses in response to your appeal and the scheme will be abortive.

Orders of the Day — Housing (Additional Powers) Bill.: Schedule, — (Provisions as to Local Bonds.) (12 Dec 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: ...for any purpose, however praiseworthy. What I cannot understand are the other contentions of the hon. Member. If I understood him aright, he said, in the first place, that the Bill would be abortive and would not produce the houses. In that case, of course, nobody would get the subsidy, and, there fore, he would be pleased with the result. Secondly, he argued that as a matter of fact the...

Orders of the Day — Consolidated Fund (Appropriation) Bill.: British Mission to Vatican. (18 Dec 1919)

Sir Robert Lynn: ...advantage we have got from that expenditure. This House and the country have a right to know what return we have got for our £16,500. As far as I can understand, the only thing we have had is some abortive Mission that was sent to Germany and that very nearly put us into an unfortunate and premature peace. But during the War, let us not mistake this fact, one of the most deadly enemies...

The hon. Member for Ogmore asked a supplementary question of the...

Orders of the Day — Government of Ireland Bill. (29 Mar 1920)

Mr James Seddon: ...plan of giving a Republican Government to Ireland at the present time. For many years every effort that has been made has been dogged by cruel pervisity. In 1795 Lord FitzGerald's mission was made abortive through an accident. In 1885 and 1893, when the hopes of Ireland were strong, another unfortunate mistake took place which threw back for another 35 years the cause of Home Rule. In 1920...

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

Mr Stephen Walsh: ...? There is some reason, not much, for the establishment of the Provisional Councils suggested by the right hon. Member for Birmingham 35 years ago. What possible reason can there be to set up an abortion such as this, which is neither a county nor a province, but which is really a desperate expedient resorted to for the definite purpose of retaining the predominance of the Ulster mind in...

Treaties of Peace (Austria and Bulgaria) Bill.: Clause 1. — (Power of His Majesty to give Effect to Peace Treaties.) (19 Apr 1920)

too much weight to the point of view of capitalist interests in the question of peace terms, because if they do they may yet find their effort abortive, and they may find that, not in the country they are considering, but even in this country, where the feeling of Labour is very strong in these matters, although not quite so demonstrative as it is in the nation to Which we are referring, they...

Supply [22ND April].: Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries. (4 May 1920)

Sir Beville Stanier: ...about which we want to know, namely, the Veterinary Laboratory. A wonderful work is going on there in the production of the sera for inoculation against disease, and especially against epizootic abortion in cows. At isolated places in this country, small associations have been formed for inoculating animals in the district. We have had one in North Shropshire, and I am sorry to see that...
