Orders of the Day — Civil Services Supplementary Estimates, 1919–20.: Ministry of Pensions. (9 Dec 1919)

Mr James Hogge: ...Pensions. If their abilities to assess a man who is disabled are about as good as their Abilities to consider a man's fitness to go into the Army, then I have nothing more or less than the hugest contempt for their particular role. Perhaps my right hon. Friend will tell us how much of this additional staff of 9,000 people is due to the expediting of demobilisation, and how much represents...

Orders of the Day — Civil Services Supplementary Estimates, 1919–20.: Secret Service. (9 Dec 1919)

Captain William Benn: ...War! Now that the War is over, what can be the purpose of employing these agents? During the War I served most of my time as connected with Secret Service work, and I have got the most wholesome contempt for it. It is not a pleasant office, but if you get an efficient officer at work it is quite obvious that there is no limit to the amount of money which he can expend, and expend extremely...

Orders of the Day — Civil Services Supplementary Estimates, 1919–20.: Royal Irish Constabulary. (9 Dec 1919)

Mr Denis Henry: ...glory of the battlefield for the man who is shot in a dark lane, and I am sorry to say that after he is dead his body is received too often, not with honour or with gratitude, but with hatred and contempt. The history of the last three months in Ireland has been a sad history. I am an Irishman born and bred, and I feel deeply for the dreadful condition of affairs that exists at the present...

Orders of the Day — Civil Services Supplementary Estimates, 1919–20.: Beware. (9 Dec 1919)

...said that the police go about at the risk of their lives. We may believe that. He has also told us that in the case of death it is not a case of meeting with honour, but of meeting with hatred and contempt. Every sentence he spoke pointed to an entirely abnormal state of things. His hope is that in order to put an end to this there may arise a healthy public opinion. How can that be...

Orders of the Day — Housing (Additional Powers) Bill. (8 Dec 1919)

Mr John Walters: ...do this work—to build great State colonies all around our large towns. Personally, I have great admiration for the garden suburbs of cities, but I know some men who regard them with loathing and contempt. There are many people who would consider themselves buried if they had to live in a garden city. They say that garden cities are places forsaken of God and despised of men. People do...

Orders of the Day — Captain REV. T. J. O'DONNELL.: Motion for Adjournment. (4 Dec 1919)

Mr Jeremiah MacVeagh: ...of the right hon. Gentleman for many reasons, because it included some subjects which call for very serious consideration. I would ask the House to have regard in the first instance to the gross contempt which in this case of Father O'Donnell has been shown by the Government, and especially by the Secretary for War, for Colonial opinion. The right hon. Gentleman, I think, has gone the best...

Orders of the Day — GOVERNMENT OF INDIA (Re-committed) BILL,: Clause 3. — (Revised System of Local Government in Certain Provinces.) (3 Dec 1919)

Sir Henry Craik: ...opportunity of his place here to pass sentence of condemnation on him, and to say that he reduced the Punjab from a happy and peaceful State to one of disorder? With those remarks I pass with some contempt from the hon. Gentleman to refer to another and very reasonable speech, made. by an hon. Member opposite (Mr. Waterson). Why does the hon. Member think that those who are to be selected...

Orders of the Day — Premium Bonds. (1 Dec 1919)

Mr Frederick Macquisten: ...going to appeal to, him and make it seem more desirable to him by offering him this interest. You are going to make it more difficult. The right hon. Member for the City of London has spoken with contempt of the sum of £200,000,000, which reminds me very much of the picture in one of the illustrated papers, long ago, of a seedy gentleman who said, "What is a million pounds? A mere...

Orders of the Day — Coal Industry.: Motion for Select Committee (28 Nov 1919)

Mr William Brace: ...the Miners' National Executive that this was a very proper step to take, inasmuch as the President of the Board of Trade and the Coal Controller have treated this advisory committee with absolute contempt. What has the Government to say to that kind of thing? They are, on the other hand, in connection with other trades, endeavouring to build up a scheme under which they will have the...

Orders of the Day — FERRIES (ACQUISITION BY COUNTY COUNCILS) BILL [Lords.] (27 Nov 1919)

Sir Ellis Hume-Williams: ...some particular locality they can call upon that locality to bear half the expense. Now the Government, who have taken no interest whatever in the Bill up to this time, and have treated it with contempt, come down here on Report and desire to redraft the whole Bill, and because they find they are out of order they ask the House to allow the Bill to be re-committed to a Committee of the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Profiteering Act.: Newcastle Local Committee. (17 Nov 1919)

Mr William Thorne: ...earnings were on a similar basis, but no demand was made that books should be produced in support of these contentions; whether he recognises that such inquiries are a farce, bringing the Act into contempt; and whether he will summon a meeting of the Central Committee under the Act, and confer with them as to the issue of a set of instructions to local committees as to the facts to be...

Oral Answers to Questions — Ex-Kaiser (Trial). (30 Oct 1919)

Mr George Lane-Fox: ...Prime Minister whether he is aware of the growing feeling in the country against the bringing of the ex-Kaiser to trial and in favour of leaving him to the punishment of his own conscience and the contempt of the world; and whether he will submit the question to a vote of this House, before carrying out this provision of the Peace Treaty, or whether the obligation under that Treaty is so...

Orders of the Day — War Emergency Laws (Continuance) Bill. (28 Oct 1919)

Colonel Josiah Wedgwood: ...I hear at the meetings which I attend are also in the same direction. Nobody will be prosecuted under it, but it is a great mistake to make laws which are not put into operation, because it brings contempt on all laws, even those laws which ought to be put into operation. If you have laws which make what you or everybody else on these benches does constantly week after week illegal you...

Orders of the Day — Aliens Restriction Bill.: New Clause. — (Employment of Aliens.) (22 Oct 1919)

Mr William Ormsby-Gore: ...the hon. Member who has just sat down, I feel compelled to vote against this new Clause, as the hon. Member has just delivered a speech which is simply naked anti-Semitism, and I have the greatest contempt for what I regard as the most cowardly thing—namely, Jew-baiting and anti-Semitism. The hon. Member for South Hackney asked why these people do not go to their own country. Remember...

Orders of the Day — Aliens Restriction Bill.: Clause 3. — (Incitement to Sedition, etc.) (22 Oct 1919)

Colonel Josiah Wedgwood: ...be run in for attempting "to cause sedition or disaffection amongst the civilian population." It is obvious that any foreigner might say something which was calculated to show that he had a certain contempt for the present Coalition Government. I have heard such things said by foreigners within the last six months. Of course, we all stick up for our Government in these circumstances; but...

Orders of the Day — BRITISH MERCANTILE MARINE UNIFORM BILL [Lords.]: Clause 1. — (Prohibition Against Improper Use of Uniform.) (14 Aug 1919)

..., he shall be guilty of an offence and liable on summary conviction to a fine not exceeding five pounds, or, if he wears it in such a manner or under such circumstances as to be likely to bring contempt on the uniform, to a fine not exceeding ten pounds or to imprisonment with or without hard labour for a term not exceeding one month: Provided that this Section shall not prevent any person...

Orders of the Day — Profiteering Bill.: Clause 1. — (Powers of the Board of Trade to Investigate Complaints and Take Proceedings). (13 Aug 1919)

Sir John Butcher: .... My hon. Friend spoke of analogies. Take the analogy of a Court of law. A Court makes an order upon a man to appear and to produce his books, and the man does not do it. He goes to prison for contempt of Court. It is worth considering whether a man who refuses to obey an order of the Board of Trade should not go to prison and remain there until he complies with the legitimate order of the...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: Clause 29. — (Continuation of Excess Profits Duty.) (23 Jul 1919)

Mr Evan Hayward: ...Exchequer was present on that occasion and he took part in the discussion. Hon. Members will remember that not so long ago in. this House the Chancellor of the Exchequer treated with a good deal of contempt the argument of my hon. and gallant Friend below (Captain Benn), when he asked that foreigners should be considered in this matter. The question of China was mentioned—China which,...

Orders of the Day — Treaty of Peace Bill (21 Jul 1919)

Commander Hon. Joseph Kenworthy: ...of another place—I refer to Lord Northeliffe—and he mentioned his Peace terms that were issued to all the world at the time of the Armistice. He treated them lightly; in fact, almost with contempt. Those peace terms in a great many respects were infinitely better than these Peace terms which we are asked to ratify. In those Peace terms Lord Northeliffe laid it down that the boundary...

Orders of the Day — Treaty of Peace Bill: Clause 1. — (Power of His Majesty to give Effect to Peace Treaty.) (21 Jul 1919)

Mr Joseph Devlin: ...was made by the most bitter and violent of Irish enemies in the past, that Ireland was not a nation. He declared that distinctly. I would be unworthy of my nationality, and I would be an object of contempt everywhere if I did not rise at this stage and resent that declaration coming from him or any other British Minister. Ireland is a nation, a nation as old, a nation that has fine ideals,...
