Preamble ( 4 Feb 1919)

Mr Francis Mildmay: ...his family. He has shown such tactful skill in handling us that we who have sat under him as Speaker have been unconsciously, or, rather, subconsciously, predisposed to accept his guidance, and to trust to his sound judgment to steer us through troubled waters. In short there has grown up between us a tie of mutual confidence, which has been quite invaluable in times of stress, and which...

Debate on the Address. (11 Feb 1919)

...that faith. The splendid example of untiring energy which has been set by His Gracious Majesty and the Gracious Lady who shares his throne has done much to encourage that confidence, and I would like to add that the Army will never forget the very gallant officer who has seen service on three fronts and who, like the stormy petrel, always seemed to contrive to be at hand when the hurricane...

Orders of the Day — King's Speech.: Industrial Unrest. (13 Feb 1919)

Mr William Brace: ...chairman for the settlement of disputes in connection with their own individual concerns, they have, up to this moment, declined to accept any such proposal or any such principle. I would like to impress the mind of the Prime Minister and the Government with this fact, that if this industrial unrest is to be dealt with satisfactorily then the individual workman must feel that he is safe to...

King's Speech.: Naval and Military Pensions and Grants. (14 Feb 1919)

Sir Kingsley Wood: ..., but there is one particular sanatorium in London—the Downs Sanatorium in which 46 per cent. of the men discharged themselves during the first month, and in that large institution, which is more like a work-house infirmary than anything else, there have been no proper facilities at all. The men have not even been in a position to dry their own clothes, and there have been no provision...

King's Speech.: Agriculture. (14 Feb 1919)

Mr William Royce: .... That, in my opinion, is one of the most important, if not the most important, matter that those desirous of benefiting agriculture should at once take in hand. I have my own opinion, and I trust and believe it is shared by all the occupants of these benches, that the first step in this direction that should be taken is to nationalise the railways. If the railways were worked in the...

Orders of the Day — Re-Election of Ministers Bill.: Clause 1. — (Abolition of Necessity of Re-election of Ministers.) (18 Feb 1919)

Major Harry Barnes: ...of it. A Government of that kind can be easily formed in the future, but we are dealing now with emergency matters. We are all willing to give the present Government this concession because we can trust it, but we might not be willing to give this concession to another Government. Why should we legislate for the future? If some Government in the future requires this concession, let them...

Orders of the Day — Procedure Rules.: Government Proposals. (18 Feb 1919)

Colonel Josiah Wedgwood: ...these Committees are very apt to be packed. It is the right of every Member of the House to criticise every measure brought forward. If you restrict the number of the Committees, Members will very likely be ruled out either by the pressure of the Government or by the caucus, and they may be prevented sitting on Committees of the utmost importance. It may be that people who have Amendments...

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

Mr George Renwick: ...there has not been a single argument put forward from the Front Bench, not even by the Leader of the House, in favour of these alterations except for the present Session. We are told that this is likely to be a strenuous Session, and that owing to the War and labour unrest we will probably have a large number of Bills to deal with, and that the present machinery is not sufficiently strong...

Orders of the Day — Procedure Rules.: Standing Order 46. — (Committal of Bills.) (19 Feb 1919)

Mr Frederick Banbury: ...the history of this Rule which it is proposed to alter. He has told the House that it is never observed by the Treasury Bench, which always speak on Report stage on a Government Bill as often as it likes. He goes through the formality of saying "by the leave of the House," but no one ever dares say to such a great person as a Minister that he must not speak again, and therefore as a matter...

Orders of the Day — Procedure Rules.: Government Proposals. (20 Feb 1919)

Captain STANLEY WILSON: I beg to second the Amendment. There is little left for me to say after the speech of my hon. and gallant Friend, but I should like to remind the Government that they are proposing to make the Kangaroo Closure permanent, and I do appeal to them not to go too far. The object of the Amendment is solely to safeguard the interests of private Members of this House. I can...

Orders of the Day — Procedure Rules.: Standing Order 1. — (Sittings of the House.) (20 Feb 1919)

Mr Ronald McNeill: I should like to know whether one particular Standing Committee is to be set apart for the consideration of all the Votes in Supply, or whether some Votes will go to one Committee and some to another. If it means that one Standing Committee is to have all the Votes before it, it really means that this very important branch of public business is to be withdrawn from the consideration of all...

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

Mr James Brown: ...imagine that it is so easy for a miner, as soon as he has got down the pit, to got to his work as it is for an ordinary tradesman travelling to his occupation. For men getting on in life, for a man like myself, who has not so long ago left the mine, it was the worst part of the day's work to get to the workings. If hon. Members will remember that, I do not think there will be any...

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

Sir William Cheyne: ...it; he must form one of the thinking body. That is essential. Then we find that consultative boards are to be instituted, and I know that he intends to make them real live boards; but I do not like the term "consultative board." A consultative body is a body that is never consulted. I have been on a consultative body myself in connection with one of the great Departments during this War....

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Board of Agriculture and Fisheries. (27 Feb 1919)

Sir A. BOSCAWEN: I have heard that statement, but believe that it is mere rumour or surmise. My own view is that it is far more likely to have been introduced at a port; but be that as it may, it has been a very serious outbreak. It is impossible to say what was the actual origin of it. The first definite information, as far as I know, was on 19th August, but my right hon. Friend will...

Oral Answers to Questions — Food Supplies.: Safeguards Against Commercial Monopolies. ( 3 Mar 1919)

Mr Alfred Short: 40. asked the Minister of National Service when it is likely that the Report of the Committee on the provision of safeguards for the consumer against commercial monopolies and trusts will be published; and whether, in view of the continuance of high prices, he will endeavour to expedite both the publication of that Report and the preparation of the necessary legislation?

Orders of the Day — Supply. — [First Allotted Day.]: Number of Land Forces. ( 3 Mar 1919)

Mr Winston Churchill: ...In these circumstances I cannot pretend that the very large figures which I submit to the House are more than a provisional Estimate. But I honestly believe that they are the maximum charge that is likely to be incurred in the currency of the financial year. I believe and hope that the Committee knows the worst in these Estimates. I hope and trust that it will be found possible, as the...

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

Mr James Hogge: ...the scheme said this: That the machinery in those shops for training these men was of the most antiquated description. We are in this difficulty this evening: Before my right hon. Friend finishes I trust he will tell the House what has been done by the Ministry of Pensions—for this applies to the same men—though the Ministry of Labour, of course, cannot be held responsible for what...

Orders of the Day — Civil Contingencies Fund Bill. ( 4 Mar 1919)

Mr Henry Cautley: .... There is a moral obligation on the Government, who by these means I have already pointed out have compelled the English farmers to grow wheat at an enormous expense to themselves on this most unlikely land in numerous cases, to see that they got at any rate the present control price of 76s. Yet, when I asked a question yesterday as to what steps the Government meant to take to accomplish...

Orders of the Day — Private Business.: Belfast Harbour Bill (by Order). ( 4 Mar 1919)

Mr Joseph Devlin: ...Belfast Harbour Commissioners, who are promoting this Bill, were prepared to recognise the spirit of this age and to introduce into this measure a wider and broader franchise upon which this great trust is to carry out its operation in the City of Belfast. I have been taunted—not in any unfriendly way—by some hon. Gentlemen opposite with the fact that the franchise on which the Harbour...

Orders of the Day — Supply. — [2ND Allotted Day.]: Munitions — National Factories. ( 5 Mar 1919)

Mr Robert Young: ...many who believe in the free play of competition. Does the right hon. Gentleman know that in disposing of these factories competition is not getting free and fair play? Is he aware that what is likely to occur is that the competition that would be aroused by the Government going into the open market on every occasion is to a certain extent being stultified by a combination of interests who...
