Mr William Brace: I beg to move, at the end of the Address, to add the words, But regrets the absence of any mention of definite proposals for dealing with the present causes of industrial unrest and for securing, as regards wages and working hours, conditions of labour that will establish a higher standard of life and social well-being for the people. In moving this Motion on behalf of the Labour party I do...

Orders of the Day — Coal Industry Commission.: Coal Industry Commission Bill, (24 Feb 1919)

Mr John Swan: In supporting the Amendment, I make no apology for doing so. In the county from which I come, the county of Durham, there will be much discontent, and especially as far as the miners are concerned, in not making the six-hours day from bank to bank. I have listened to the remarks of the Prime Minister in regard to the policy pursued by the Miners' Federation and the Labour party. It was...

Dr Christopher Addison: ...the average monthly mortality during the War from causes connected with the War. The men and women who were lost during that quarter were very largely people in the prime of life, as is the case, unfortunately, at the present time.

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Health Bill. (26 Feb 1919)

Major Alexander Farquharson: I think it is a matter for congratulation that at last this country is within measurable distance of having a Ministerial Department devoted to the one sole aim and purpose of the care of the health of the people of this nation.

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Civil Services Supplementary Estimates, 1918–19. (4 Mar 1919)

Mr James Hogge: ...are these. Probably some trade unionists will explain them more intimately than I can. But there is the question, after the men have been trained, as to what is to be considered a satisfactory test for the admission of the men to the skilled trade union. Take the case of Scotland, in which we have longer apprenticeships. It is rather a tall order to ask the skilled trade unionist, who has...

Orders of the Day — SUPPLY [27th February].: Civil Service Supplementary Estimates, 1918–19. (4 Mar 1919)

Sir Alfred Mond: I really do not know. That is a question for the Foreign Office. I am sure my right hon. Friend does not want the Vice-Consul and the staff housed in an in sanitary building, and that is the reason why the new building was sanctioned some time ago. The excess Vote is due, as in a great many cases, to the increased cost of material. I am sorry I cannot give my hon. Friend any explanation of...

Orders of the Day — Supply. — [5TH March].: Vote on Account. (10 Mar 1919)

Mr James Sexton: ...have no legal right to claim from the employer the exact amount of tonnage he handles. In one or two cases, in Scotland particularly, we had evidence of such a character—the right hon. Member for the Forest of Dean was also a member of that Committee—as proved conclusively that one gang of fourteen men in eight months were absolutely robbed of £114 by not being able to ascertain the...

Sir A. BOSCAWEN: The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative in so far as it applies to that season of the year during which milk is produced in excess of what is required for direct consumption purposes.

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...

Mr John Sturrock: 86. asked the Secretary for Scotland whether in view of the uncertainty felt by school boards and all engaged in educational work in Scotland by the continued lack of definiteness as to when the Education (Scotland) Act, 1918, will come into operation, he can now either state the date or indicate approximately at what future date he will be able to say when the Act will come into force?

Orders of the Day — CONSOLIDATED FUND (No. 1) BILL. (19 Mar 1919)

.... Member who has just spoken so much as to develop in somewhat greater detail some of the points made in the very inte- resting and valuable speech by the right hon. Gentleman opposite the Member for one of the divisions of Manchester. He devoted a good deal of the time during which he addressed the House to what seems to me to be one of the most urgent questions at present, namely, the...

Orders of the Day — Medical Treatment of Children (Ireland) Bill. (24 Mar 1919)

Mr Arthur Samuels: I beg to move "That the Bill be now read a second time."

Mr John Swan: 55. asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he is prepared to provide in his forthcoming Budget for an allowance of £25 per annum from Income Tax to working-class parents who keep children over sixteen years of age going to school for higher educational purposes, as the existing tax is likely to deter education and otherwise prevent bright children of the poor from educational equipment?
