Debate on the Address. (11 Feb 1919)

Colonel Josiah Wedgwood: ...in this country is in the application of labour to land and raw materials. If you want to increase the opportunities for useful, creative work in this country, there is one safe way, and that is to make it a little easier for labour to apply itself to land and raw materials. If you make our coal easier of access by preventing the owners of the coal from keeping the coalfields idle; if you...

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

Mr James Sexton: ...I have often felt an irresistible desire to shiver a lance with some of the doughty champions in this Chamber. I find myself now, after five Parliamentary attempts, present and taking part in the game. The discussion of this subject seems to have taken a peculiar turn. With the exception of the speeches of the Mover and Seconder of the Amendment, all the speeches have dealt entirely with...

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

...as new Members, who knows absolutely nothing whatsoever of the procedure of this House, to venture to intervene in a Debate of this kind. But it is said that sometimes outsiders see most of the game, so possibly one coming entirely new and without any preconceived ideas may possibly not be entirely out of court in making a remark or two on this subject. It seems to me from what one has...

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

Sir Charles Edwards: ...about unrest and what brought it about. I believe I could say in a sentence what is at the bottom of the unrest, and it is that the workers of this country are tired of working in order simply to make profits for a few people. I believe that is at the very bottom of the thing. There are other sidelights about it, but that is the basis of it all. The same applies to the miners, and,...

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

Captain Charles Loseby: ...is that disease springs from certain known evils which must be overcome. 9.0 p.m. What I think this House has to examine in reference to the present Bill is this: Is the Minister of Health going to make the attempt to directly control those agencies which are attacking these evils? It is quite true that a good house is a potent factor against disease, but disease springs from many things;...

Orders of the Day — Civil Contingencies Fund Bill.: Clause 1. — (Power to Issue Sums from the Consolidated Fund to the Civil Contingencies Fund.) (14 Mar 1919)

Lieut-Colonel William Weigall: ...the Government is now under. Rightly or wrongly potato growers, large and small, in this country are under the impression, an impression I do not share, that the Government is not going to play the game under the definite contract they enter into. I refuse to believe there is any intention on the part of the Government as a whole to repudiate a definite contract entered into with the...

Orders of the Day — Notices of Motion.: Ministry of Ways and Communications Bill. (18 Mar 1919)

Mr John Jones: ...I have discovered that I could not agitate for nuts, because I have found that a number of hon. and right hon. Gentlemen, who would repudiate the term "paid agitator," have beaten us at our own game. I have received telegrams, post-cards, registered letters, and a correspondence which my post office at home is incapable of fulfilling the necessities of, informing me of the absolute ruin...

Orders of the Day — Coal Industry.: Egypt. (20 Mar 1919)

Mr William Ormsby-Gore: ...in Egypt has arisen largely because the Foreign Office have not sought an earlier opportunity for discussing with the Egyptian Ministers the meaning of those declarations. There is no use in making vague declarations to an eastern people unless you consult with them as to what you mean in practice by those declarations. The resignation of the PrimeMinister of Egypt and all that has...

Clause 1. — (Power to Prolong Period of Naval, Military, or Air Force Service.) (26 Mar 1919)

Mr Charles Stanton: ...who are supporting this Amendment, if they are in dead earnest, if they want to see an end to militarism, if they want an end put to Conscription? If they do want these things, let them play the game now. You do not stand any better chance with your man in the ring and with a hooligan outside if you only half thrash your opponent, because he will come up again. You want to make a clean and...

Indemnities. (2 Apr 1919)

Mr Alexander Lyle-Samuel: ...to their difficulties and to the world's difficulties by administering Germany! It is to my mind a most incredible proposal. Then we hear about the coal mines. The proposal is, "Germany has coal: make the German workmen hew the coal and send it abroad for our own credit, or send it here for our use." When the hon Member suggested it, and said that the mine-owners and miners would like it,...

Orders of the Day — Women's Emancipation Bill. (4 Apr 1919)

Mr John Campbell: ...remember, and it is a matter of great importance, that there is a great body of opinion in the country, I will not say in this House, which is still opposed to women's suffrage, and that they did make a great sacrifice in coming to the com- promise to which allusion has been made. Therefore, I would ask the out and out supporters of this principle of equality of franchise between men and...

Orders of the Day — Statement by DR. Addison. (7 Apr 1919)

Mr Noel Billing: The hon. Gentleman makes the position even easier. A man can only speak from his experience. My experience and intimate knowledge of the people of one of the most beautiful parts of England, Hertfordshire, is that the rural property there does not even compare favourably with the slums. I can take the hon. Member to hundreds of houses owned—and I say it advisedly—owned by the lords of the...

Small Landowners (Scotland) Act (Amendment) Bill. (11 Apr 1919)

Mr James Hogge: ...used by the Land Court in favour of doing something to get Scotsmen on to the land. There is a quotation in this matter from the last Report of the Land Court which is better than one could make in the course of a speech, and puts the matter quite briefly. They say, in talking about the services of the smallholder class in Scotland to the nation: We need not dwell on the services which the...

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

...in the case of the London parks to say that a portion of the parks, which were given and held for the whole public, shall be devoted to a few allotment-holders by cramping the space for recreation, games, and all the rest of it? Or take, again, building land in the neighbourhood of towns. Every town we hope is going to engage in a big housing programme. We cannot have the natural...

Aliens Restriction Bill (15 Apr 1919)

Mr Charles Stanton: ...are International Brotherhood, the League of Nations, and so on. Those things are not going to fill our bellies or safeguard the future of our little children in this country. Let us play the game and say that we are not going to take half measures. Our boys have fought and died on the various fronts for us and for the British flag, and we are not going to whittle away what has been won at...

Peace Conference.: Situation in Russia. (16 Apr 1919)

Colonel Josiah Wedgwood: ...to rack and ruin but this country as well, owing to the want of co-ordination in the different departments of government, and the general business of Cabinet rule here requires a head who will make some effort to co-ordinate the Departments and secure that there shall be a reasonable economic administration of this country. Everyone knows that the Board of Trade is the public Department...

Orders of the Day — Ways and Means.: Budget Proposals — Income Tax. (1 May 1919)

Mr Francis Jackson: I would like to preface the few remarks I have to make by expressing profound admiration for the very sound and businesslike Budget which the right hon. Gentleman presented to the Committee yesterday. I can imagine no more difficult or no more exacting task than that of compiling and presenting the first Budget after the cessation of hostilities in the most momentous and ruinous War which the...

Orders of the Day — Supply. — [9TH Allotted Day.]: MR. Roberts' Statement. (6 May 1919)

Mr David Irving: ...run absolutely mad. If you could imagine any one thing upon this earth that the nation generations ago, much less to-day, should have set itself to control, not in the interests of profit-making for farmers or anybody else, but in the interests of a plentiful supply of absolutely pure and unadulterated food at as near the cost of production as possible, it is this. Can one imagine more...

Orders of the Day — Railway Fares. (7 May 1919)

Sir Auckland Geddes: ...—and, after all, in all these things one only can speak broadly—the War Office have done all they could to meet the difficulties of the situation. They certainly, in my opinion, played the game thoroughly. They have got responsibilities; they have to be prepared for possible emergencies. It is very easy to say there are men standing by doing nothing. It is also easy to say, after one...

Orders of the Day — Primary Education (Belfast) Bill. (9 May 1919)

Mr Thomas Moles: ...supposed bigotry. It is mere hogwash, and hon. Gentlemen know it. They tell us that they will fight this Bill line by line and Clause by Clause. We know their methods, and we know that when they make a promise of that kind they always redeem it. They want to know where this Bill has emanated. That has become a stock charge now. There is always a mystery into which my hon. Friends are...
