Orders of the Day — Acquisition of Land Bill. (10 Apr 1919)

Mr Leslie Scott: ...neither more nor less than fair compensation. I suggest that there is no logical reason, or any reason of public policy, which should distinguish the case of a man whose land has to be taken for a school from that of a man whose land has to be taken for a railway company.

Orders of the Day — Tea (Customs). (30 Apr 1919)

Mr Charles Jesson: all that, what the man in the street also requires is more holidays, and a reduction in the hours of labour, so as to enjoy some of the good things of life, and also means of recreation, education, and leisure, and travel, and all that kind of thing.

If it can clearly...
