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

Hon. Edward Wood: ...sack of flour. That is not being done at the present time. If it were done, it would go a long way to relieve the glut of English wheat. I would appeal to the House not to let this matter be side tracked by the suggestion that this is the resuscitation of the old controversy between cheap food for the towns and the other side of the question. It is really no such thing. I recognise the...

Orders of the Day — Naval, Military and Air Force Service Bill. (6 Mar 1919)

Mr Thomas Griffiths: .... I saw a tramway strike in Moscow when I was there in 1913. The workers had to go out of the district in order to hold their meetings, but the military and the police were immediately on their track. They captured forty of the leaders, and on the following day those men were shot and other leaders were sent to Siberia. That took place in times of peace, when the plutocrats and aristocrats...

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Ways and Communications Bill.: Unified Transportation Control. (17 Mar 1919)

Sir Eric Geddes: ...railways were made in places where the tenure might be temporary. We were hoping it was going to be temporary, as eventually it was, and we moved on. But the maintenance and cost of a Decauville track is so heavy that to put it down in this country for agricultural use would simply be throwing away money. I do not say there are no places where it could be used and used effectively, but it...

Clause 1. — (Power to Prolong Period of Naval, Military, or Air Force Service.) (25 Mar 1919)

Mr James Hogge: ...that has appeared in the newspapers is one which gave the terms of pay to the men on the Rhine, go that if he has passed more than one the right hon. Gentleman had better get someone on the track to ascertain where the others have gone. The fact is, attempts have not been made. Has my right hon. Friend or the War Office at any time made the attempt to secure the men for the period of one...

Orders of the Day — Housing and Town Planning Bill. (8 Apr 1919)

Mr James Sexton: ...? I am a member of the Liverpool Tramways Committee. We applied to the local landlord for a small strip of land, not wider than this House and not a quarter of a mile long, in order to lay a double track, with a junction. The price we had to pay was, I think, £7,000. How can you expect to house people under a system of this character? You cannot repeat Port Sunlight. The philanthropy of...

Pensions for Mothers. (8 Apr 1919)

Hon. Waldorf Astor: ...and child life and all it involves, whereas it is rather my task to be the devil's advocate and put some of the practical difficulties before the Members of the House, not in any way of side-tracking or killing this Motion, but merely so that hon. Members should be able to assist us in dealing with the difficulties. Here are some of the questions which I would put to those who have brought...

Russia.: Bolshevik Government (Recognition). (9 Apr 1919)

Mr James Sexton: ...—is sincerely to adopt the principle embodied in the Resolution moved to-night. I am not going to be a party, no matter what the conditions may be, to negotiating with men whose record and whose tracks are red with blood. I do not want to detain the House any longer, but that is my position as an individual, and I am speaking purely for myself.

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

Mr Horatio Bottomley: ...of is the picking out for special treatment of this particular trade, which is one of the usual resorts of the conventional Chancellor of the Exchequer who is afraid to go outside the beaten track. There is a touch of D'Abernon about this policy. As a war emergency measure, you put restrictions on drink. You created the Liquor Control Board, which, of course, will go now that the war...

Orders of the Day — Local Authorities (Enabling) Bill. (16 May 1919)

Mr Augustine Hailwood: ...parcel people off the road? Luckily, in the case of the Manchester Corporation, it was found that they were acting in an illegal manner, because they only had power to carry parcels over their own track, and not to distribute beyond. They spread out their tentacles with horses and vans, and we had members of the corporation going to Ireland and buying horses, and so on. Although the...

Orders of the Day — Dogs' Protection Bill.: Clause 1. — (prohibition of Experiments upon Dogs.) (23 May 1919)

Mr Walter Elliot: not. Here is a disease crippling and killing the children of our industrial classes. We are engaged in research to find out what is the matter, and we have good reason to believe that we are tracking it down. It is a defect of some constituent in the food of these children. The hon. Member for Silver-town says that you should go on giving the food to these children and that it is wrong...

Orders of the Day — Housing and Town Planning Bill.: Clause 10. — (Power of Entry on Land Compulsorily Acquired.) (26 May 1919)

Major BARNES: I should like to deal with one or two of the points which have been raised on the Amendment which has been side-tracked on to an entirely erroneous issue. There is no question of setting up a different basis of valuation to that which is set up in the Land Acquisition Bill. This Amendment simply provides for the basis of valuation set up in the Land Acquisition Bill to be...

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Ways and Communications Bill.: Clause 7. — (Claims against and by the Minister in Respect of Exercise of power) (2 Jul 1919)

Sir Eric Geddes: I quite understand my hon. and gallant Friend's point, but anything done under those powers would have to be by a specific Order. It would be quite impossible ever to keep track of your prospective liabilities if you were to be responsible for everything that every railway or dock or light railway servant did everywhere in the Kingdom whatever grade he was. So that anything that the Minister...

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Ways and Communications Bill.: Clause 8. — (Power to Establish Transport Services.) (7 Jul 1919)

Sir Eric Geddes: The words are really unnecessary. It would be impossible without breaking up a road to lay a track. You cannot put it down on a hard road.

Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Navy.: Battle of Jutland. (9 Jul 1919)

Mr Walter Long: It is anticipated that the record, together with plans showing the tracks followed by all squadrons concerned, will be completed by the end of September, 1919. As stated in the reply to my Noble Friend's question on 26th March, it is proposed to consider the question of the publication of the narrative when it is completed.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 7. — (Imperial Preference.) (9 Jul 1919)

Mr Evan Hayward: ...policy after a three hours' Debate. There was a speech made by an hon. and gallant Member opposite which interested me very much, because it followed the well-known, the beaten, and well-defined track of the speeches of Coalition Liberals. First of all, he suggested that these preferences are so small or diminutive as to be quite unimportant and innocuous, and, in the second place, that as...

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Ways and Communications Bill (10 Jul 1919)

Sir Eric Geddes: ...and width of the vehicle which can pass obstructions on the line. It means altering station platforms, altering the entrances to warehouses, altering what is called the "six-foot" between the tracks, altering passing points on shortened sidings. [HON. MEMBERS: "And bridges and tunnels."] And bridges and tunnels. A great many of those are all right, but there are a limited number which will...

Orders of the Day — Coal Output.: Statement by Sir a. Geddes'. (14 Jul 1919)

Mr Vernon Hartshorn: ...national appeal can be made with a greater certainty of a ready response than the miners, but if anybody thinks they are going to threaten or bludgeon him into doing something they are on the wrong track. When the President of the Board of Trade says, "Increase the output, boys, and we will bring it down 6d. a ton if you like," that is not the way. If the Government will say to us...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce.: Steel Rails (American and British). (17 Jul 1919)

...question, I have made inquiries as to this transaction and understand that the order has been placed abroad, because home firms are unable to deliver the rails in time for the necessary renewals of track which have to be carried out before the winter. The difference in price between the American and the lowest British tender (which was not by a Glasgow company) was just over £10,000, and...

Orders of the Day — Army Estimates, 1919–20.: Supplementary Vote on Account. (29 Jul 1919)

...The commanding officers were, in very many cases, quite inconsiderate in the manner in which they dealt with offenders, particularly first offenders, and when once an offender was started along the track of committing offences it was very difficult indeed to stop him. There was also, very often, an inequality, or lack of uniformity, in the execution of the sentences. This could be seen...

Orders of the Day — Supply. — [20TH Allotted Day.]: Board of Agriculture, Scotland. (4 Aug 1919)

Major William Murray: now cut off from its constituency because of the difficulties of communication. They have first to cross a ferry, then before they get to a road they have to travel across five miles of moor track. The Secretary for Scotland or the Board might well spend a couple of hundred pounds in bringing the people who live in this island in touch with outer civilisation. Another road to join up...
