Orders of the Day — Housing (Financial Provisions) Bill. (25 Jul 1924)

Mr Charles Masterman: ...have to try and turn the fourth best into the third best, and I certainly think this Bill as it is leaving us, more nearly approaches the third best than any of the four other schemes, which proved abortive, which were proposed by various fluctuating Coalitions and Conservative Governments. Here I want to refuse to adopt for one moment our usual attitude of humble and contrite heart,...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Foreign Office. (14 Jul 1924)

Mr Ramsay Macdonald: ...the British Prime Minister met the French Prime Minister? How is it that he has discovered at this late hour that this is new diplomacy, and not old diplomacy? Did not ho himself in that remarkably abortive conversation he had with M. Poincaré—was this new diplomacy or was it old—issue a communique saying it was a complete success? Let the dead past bury its dead! There is one...

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

Sir Victor Warrender: ...what is due, and that is justice. I feel very sorry for the Under-Secretary who will have to answer this Debate, because he knows perfectly well that the only statement he can make is one of a very abortive character, quite useless from any sound practical point of view, and one which is not going to carry any weight. I have been picturing to myself what I would do if I were in the hon....

Orders of the Day — London Traffic Bill.: Clause 1. — (Constitution of Advisory Committee.) (24 Jun 1924)

Mr Thomas Macnamara: ...that we live in times quite unknown to the ancients. A more amazing situation could not well be conceived than the position of the Minister of Transport. It is even more amazing than this abortion of a Bill. The hon. Gentleman said—and I took down the sentence—"I do not like it all myself." Then why is his name on the back of it? Why is it that he is sitting on that bench helping...

Orders of the Day — Imperial Preference. (17 Jun 1924)

Captain William Benn: ...has nothing to do with cash. The only people who are pleased with a tariff are the people who benefit by the tariff. [An HON. MEMBER: "NO!"] Let us see. We have had, in the last five years, various abortive attempts to set up tariffs in this country. I have never heard that a man who wanted a tariff on motor cars was pleased because you put a tariff on fabric gloves, for instance. What is...

Civil Services and Revenue Departments Estimates, 1924–25.: Ministry of Labour. (22 May 1924)

Captain Cecil Ramage: ...that I might help to whet his apparently blunted purpose. I do not seek to deprive him of the emoluments to which, admittedly, his hard labours entitle him, although the results, so far, have been abortive. Nevertheless my sympathy goes out to the right hon. Gentleman in his position in the House to-day, because he is the victim of political circumstances. If there ever was a believer in...

Orders of the Day — Trade Facilities Bill.: Clause 1. — (Increase of amount of loans which may be guaranteed under 11 & 12 Geo. 5. c. 65, and extension of period for giving of guarantees.) (12 Mar 1924)

Lieut-Colonel George Woodwark: ...water that ebbs and flows across the sand banks; when these works are done, dredging would be of great benefit and practicable, but without the training walls dredging would be more or less abortive, as the silt would settle in the dredged portions almost as fast as it was dredged away, unless the work was only carried out when there were freshets coming down the river.The danger of breaks...

Orders of the Day — Temperance (Wales) Bill. (15 Feb 1924)

Major Goronwy Owen: ...this Measure for three reasons. I support it because Wales demands it. I support it because the existing licensing arrangements for dealing with the drink problem have proved ineffective and abortive throughout the country. Thirdly, I support it because the present Bill is in line with the best and most advanced thought throughout the whole world. I do not propose to go over again in...

Navy Estimates, 1923–24.: Admiralty Office. (19 Jul 1923)

Captain William Benn: ...,000,000 to make the British Fleet mobile and effective. If the speech of the First Lord or the Estimates had been produced before the Washington Conference, that Conference would have been utterly abortive, and the Washington Treaty would never have been made. That is why, having made the plan, the plan was concealed. That promise of success would assuredly have been broken if the...

Mr Charles Roberts: the disposal of the council portions of the information it possesses upon conditions which will ensure that the efforts of the League to secure the abolition of slavery will not be rendered abortive?

Mr Andrew MacLaren: ...Rates Act—when we state these hard facts on the industrial platforms of this country—[HON. MEMBERS: "They are not facts."] The Solicitor-General said that even though the registration becomes abortive, still the Valuation Department will be in a position to keep its valuations up to date. I want to know what guarantee we have that the Valuation Department will be in a position to...

Civil Services and Revenue Departments Estimates, 1923–24.: Saar Valley and Ruhr District. (10 May 1923)

Mr Edmund Morel: ...Then as to the second demand made as a result of the Conference in May, 1921, the demand for £6,600,000,000, the right hon. Gentleman went into the details at great length in this House, after the abortive visit of Dr. Simons, in a debate on 5th May, and the substantive portion of his declaration was this: After hearing everything which the German representatives had to say … the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Ireland.: Elections (Prosecution). (7 May 1923)

Sir Basil Peto: 16. asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he has received complaints from the Arab community in Palestine that in the recent abortive elections such secondary nominations as were made were obtained in many cases by fraud and threats, and even forgery; and whether he will hold an inquiry into the methods in which the elections have been conducted?

Orders of the Day — HOUSING, Etc. (No. 2) BILL. (25 Apr 1923)

Mr John Simon: ..., as it turned out in many cases, they have not yet been able to use. They have had the extreme aggravation of finding schemes which they have spent an immense amount of time in preparing rendered abortive by the shutting down of the earlier provision, and it may therefore be said that, at any rate, the new Bill approaches local authorities who have been, by recent years' experience,...

Army and Air Force (Annual)Bill.: New Clause. — (Amendment Of Section 4). (12 Apr 1923)

Mr Jack Lawson: ...days of ours of the twentieth century we will clothe a man, feed him, and give him a horse to ride upon if needs be, that we will give him a passage overseas, send him to sunny climes, that, in abort, we will do anything in the work of death and destruction but we will riot even consider the possibility of doing something for the things of life and construction. They accept this contract...

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

Mr Worthington Evans: ...papers and the spreading of the knowledge of what was actually done, would, in my belief, remove many of the grounds of suspicion. As regards the reparation question, the papers relating to the abortive Conferences in December and January last have been published. Why not publish the papers relating to the Conference in London in August of last year? These papers could not have been...

Oral Answers to Questions — Ireland.: Illegal Operations (Women). (14 Mar 1923)

Mr. CHAMBERLAIN: Figures are not yet available for the year 1922. In some cases in 1914 it was not clear, on the information given, by what means abortion had been procured, and accordingly the numbers are given of all cases of death classified under the heading "Attempt to procure abortion," namely, in 1914, 35, and in 1921, 41.

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Airships. (14 Mar 1923)

Sir Frederick Sykes: ...should come under their purview, that the old system of naval and military wings is retrograde, checks progress and only sets up competition, and also that a reversion to the old system would make abortive its true independent strategic action. As I see the question, I think we ought to concentrate, first of all, upon the necessity for the independent arm. If we could ensure sufficient...

Orders of the Day — Importation of Animals Bill: Clause 1. — (Importation of Canadian store cattle.) (11 Dec 1922)

...time to examine it properly, and I think there are still a great many points on which Amendments ought to be framed, and which I am afraid will escape. I have again raised the question of epizootic abortion. The hon. Member for Kinross and West Perth (Mr. Gardiner) on Thursday assumed that I had not read the Bill, because I was dealing with this disease. He said very properly that it was...

Orders of the Day — Importation of Animals Bill. (7 Dec 1922) this matter. It is notorious that her cattle are very free from disease. There are certain diseases prevalent in Canada—diseases, I may mention, which are not included in the Bill—epizootic abortion and tuberculosis. Both of these diseases have been carefully excluded from the provisions of this Bill. However that may be, Canada can compare with us very well indeed in the way of...
