Oral Answers to Questions — Education.: Universities (Scotland) Bill. (26 May 1921)

Mr Robert Munro: A Universities (Scotland) Bill was submitted to me with the approval of the University Courts of the four Scottish Universities, but I am not aware if the Bill in that form was considered by any education bodies other than the University Courts. As I informed my hon. Friend on the 4th May last, I was considering the possibility of introducing a Universities Bill. The Bill I have in view is...

Oral Answers to Questions — League of Nations.: International Court of Justice. (2 Jun 1921)

Sir Robert Horne: ...of the taxpayer. There have been two cases—to which my hon. Friend referred—which came before the Commissioners. There is no appeal from the Commissioners upon such an application to the courts of law, and consequently there is no legal decision upon the matter at all. When every taxpayer is seeking to find a possible loophole to escape from payment, this section is now being called in...

Murder of Officers (Ireland). (21 Jun 1921)

Lord Robert Cecil: ...whether that hypothesis can any longer be sustained. If that is the case, almost everything you are doing is wrong. Instead of treating this question from a military point of view, with military courts and military precautions, you should aim at enforcing the civil law, with the guarantees which civil justice requires, only they should be more forcibly and effectively enforced than has...

Orders of the Day — Church of Scotland Bill. (22 Jun 1921)

Mr Robert Munro: ..., and, accordingly, for the protection of other Churches it is thought right by both the contracting parties in this Bill that that Clause should be inserted.

The House will appreciate that to be appropriate as the correlative provision to that which affirms the right of the Church in spiritual matters.

Oral Answers to Questions — Income Tax.: Arrears (Miners). (9 Feb 1922)

Sir Robert Horne: ...and enjoyed, but which the recipients neglected to pay at the proper time. As regards the recovery of arrears by way of summary proceedings, I think the hon. Member may safely assume that the courts give full weight to all relevant considerations when making orders for payment.

Class Iii.: Prosecutions, Ireland, (22 Feb 1922)

Lord Robert Cecil: ...the Chief Secretary for this Vote, a defence made with all that rotund eloquence which we so very much admire. The right hon. Gentleman says it is one of the most hopeful signs in Ireland that the courts are being more used. I do not know why he should be so particularly glad at there being more prosecutions. There is nothing to show that any of the prosecutions were successful. We were...

Civil Services and Revenue Departments Supplementary Estimate, 1921–22.: Law Charges and Courts of Law, Scotland. (28 Feb 1922)

Mr Robert McLaren: While it is very clear that considerable expense was incurred in fighting this case, I do not think, on the whole, the money has been badly spent. Prior to the proceedings coming into Court there was a feeling in Glasgow and throughout the West of Scotland that a great many things were being done in connection with the aerodrome which were very wrong, and I do not think the people would have...

Clause 1. — Provisions for giving the force of law to and currying into effect Irish Agreement. (6 Mar 1922)

Sir Robert Lynn: ...absolutely essential that this Amendment should be passed. He has told us we cannot alter the Constitution Bill for Southern Ireland, and supposing that Bill should include a Clause providing for a Court of Appeal for the whole of Ireland, what position shall we in Northern Ireland be in? We shall then be told that we cannot alter the Clause, and, judging from past experience, we shall...

MALONE: 84. asked the Secretary for Scotland whether his attention has been drawn to the sentences of three months' imprisonment with hard labour passed by the Greenock Sheriff Court against James Murphy, Patrick M'Daid, Robert M'Guire, and Joseph Ross, members of the Greenock Unemployed Committee; whether the offence with which these men were charged was that they entered the Greenock...

Engineering Trade Dispute. (20 Mar 1922)

Mr Robert Young: ...Minister has failed, but that there seems to have been a lack of foresight, and a lack of courage on the part of the Government in not insisting upon carrying out their powers, under the Industrial Courts Act, to see that this dispute should not have advanced to the position in which it is now. It is the Government's duty now to use its power under that Act to end this dispute, in the...

Orders of the Day — Army Estimates, 1922–23.: Vote on Account. (22 Mar 1922)

Viscount Wolmer: ...beneficiaries of Lord Byng's Fund, and lend it permanently to this great State trading monopoly in order to finance it? This Committee, over which my hon. Friend the Member for Ecclesall (Sir S. Roberts) presided, say in their report: We consider that it would be far preferable that the Navy, Army, and Air Force institutes should not be financed from money derived from the pockets of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Kenya Colony.: Entertainments Duty. (23 Mar 1922)

Sir Robert Horne: entertainments in respect of which Entertainments Duty is payable. It is not, as suggested, a new departure to levy the duty on the membership subscriptions of county cricket clubs; and the Courts have recently decided that in fact such subscriptions do in part represent payment for the right of admission to taxable entertainments and have therefore been properly charged with duty under...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education.: Corn Subsidy (Scotland). (23 Mar 1922)

Mr Robert Munro: ...of debts due to the Board by them. Where there is no such agreement, payment of the subsidy is being made to persons who are indebted to the Board except in cases where the Board hold decrees of Court against the debtors or otherwise entitled to arrest the subsidy by ordinary process of law. I may add that I am obtaining the opinion of the Law Officers with regard to the rights of the...

Army and Air Force (Annual) Bill: New Clause. — (Amendment of Army Act, s. 180 (2).) (5 Apr 1922)

Mr Robert Sanders: ...Viceroy, I presume, in considering that appeal, has power to consult anyone he likes. I have not understood quite whether my hon. and gallant Friend means that the appeal should be to a military Court or to a civil Court, or to a mixed Court. In any case, it is not clear to me, although I bow to his superior knowledge of the Indian Army, that the Viceroy at the present moment has not power...

Pensions to Ex-Service Men. (11 Apr 1922)

Sir James Macpherson: opportunity for issuing instructions—for that was the suggestion of the hon. Member for Western Derbyshire (Mr. White): he called it a hint, and the hon. Member for West Bromwich (Mr. F. Roberts) called it a subtle method—but whatever you call it, the suggestion is there that we are taking this opportunity as a strong and powerful Government to influence Medical Boards throughout...

Orders of the Day — Rating of Machinery Bill. (28 Apr 1922)

Captain John Jameson: ..., but is because, in the first place, as a Scottish Member, I feel it my duty to relieve in some degree the apprehensions which have been expressed by the right hon. Member for Norwich (Mr. G. Roberts) that we Scotsmen cling to the handicap over our English competitors which our system of rating of machinery has given us and try to maintain the weight still upon our English rivals. I can...
