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

Mr Robert McLaren: ...the sheriff and three days was spent on it. It was perfectly evident there was nothing in it, and the sheriff in giving his decision commented very strongly upon such a case being brought into Court. The result was that out of a great number of complaints there was only one found proven, and that was that on a notice paper at the pit head, the words "where required" had been omitted, and...

Supply. — [7TH Allotted Day.]: Chief Secretary for Ireland. (3 Apr 1919)

Mr T.P. O'Connor: ...was a great fact, everybody knew that the struggle was drawing to a close, and nobody was surprised that a short time afterwards that great newspaper was able to announce the conversion of Sir Robert Peel, who had been the Protectionist leader for many years, to the principle of Free Trade. The same newspaper to-day has, I think, given fair warning to all the world, including hon. Members...

Pensions for Mothers. (8 Apr 1919)

Mr Robert Richardson: send them to any home. Under those circumstances the children would have had the advantage of parental control.

I am informed that the rate of wages for the work was the recognised standard rate for the Hucknall district, and that this was confirmed by the workmen's representative on the Court of Referees which dealt with the cases, who is the secretary of the Nottingham and District Builders Labourers' Union. I am, however, having further inquiry made into this point. Owing to the...

If he will give me particulars of any such cases of refusal as have come to his knowledge, I will make inquiries and let him know the result.

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

Mr Robert Munro: ..., 1911, requires to be amended. Its machinery has turned out to be both cumbrous and costly. With reference to what the hon. Member for East Edinburgh has said with regard to the decisions of the Court of Session, I think he would do well to complain not so much of the interpretation of the law laid down by the Court of Session and by the House of Lords, as with regard to the provisions of...

Sir Robert Horne: The claim to out-of-work donation in this case was disallowed by the Court of Referees on the ground that the applicant had refused an offer of suitable employment. On the facts stated in the question I am of opinion that the case requires further consideration, and it is being referred to the Umpire for this purpose.

It also provided that in certain instances, where women's trades were ill-organised, a rate might be fixed through the agency of the Ministry of Labour by a reference to an Interim Court of Arbitration, which was set up by the Act.
