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

Mr Alfred Waterson: ...I can voice, at any rate, the feelings and aspirations of the British people in that constituency. Let me say here, quite frankly, that the question of not merely hours and wages contained in this Bill, but also the greater principle of nationalisation, was one of the main points that I put forward in my programme in order to be returned to this House. Naturally, then, I come forward...

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

Dr Christopher Addison: .... That is why now we place the Research Committee under the Privy Council, which is as wide in its sphere as the Empire, and I am sure it is the right place to put it. Another change in the Bill as compared with last year is the reference in Clause 3 to the Poor Law. The House will remember the very important declaration which I made on the authority of the Cabinet last year, that we had...

Orders of the Day — Increase of Rent Bill.: Clause 4. — (Extension of Principal Act to Higher-rented Houses.) (11 Mar 1919)

Lieut-Colonel Charles McLean: ...community. It is no use saying that this matter only affects a few. It affects a great number. It affects people all over the country, in Scotland as well as in England, although according to the bill one would imagine that we pay lower rents in Scotland than you do in England. I can tell you that so far as convenience and accommodation go houses are more expensive in Scotland than in...

Orders of the Day — Prevention of Unemployment Bill. (21 Mar 1919)

Mr James Sexton: I hope I may be excused if I take this opportunity, as a new Member, of regretting the apparent apathy of Members of the House to a Bill of such an important character. The question of unemployment is the social cancer of our existing conditions, and one would have thought, after the expressions day by day and night after night by the Members of this House of their interest in the working...

Orders of the Day — Housing in Ireland. (13 May 1919)

Sir Maurice Dockrell: ...upon this House with all the earnestness I can the importance of proceeding with this housing scheme at the earliest moment. A few weeks ago, in relation to the Medical Treatment of Children Bill, I said that such was the shocking condition of these houses that people who had to traverse the streets in which they were situated took to the middle of the road rather than the footpath. Those...

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

Mr Walter Elliot: I beg to point out that the Bill says, "calculated to give pain or disease." Suppose the feeding experiment were to produce a diseased condition, as it very easily might, and which was not necessarily painful, it does not make any difference what the hon. Baronet says, the experiment would be prohibited under this Bill. I will give a case in point. One of the gravest diseases affecting the...

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

Lieut-General Sir Aylmer Hunter-Weston: As there is still considerable doubt in the minds of many Members of this House as to whether the powers to be given to the new Ministry by this Bill are not too great, and a further fear that the various powers thus given may be mishandled, I think it may be of interest and advantage to this House if I, who have the privilege of being the senior of the many hon. Members who have served...

Orders of the Day — War Emergency Laws (Continuance) Bill. (16 Feb 1920)

Mr Joseph Devlin: .... It is a very modest and a very simple contribution to the debate. One really would have thought that the right hon. and learned Gentleman was presiding at a tea party, telling what a pleasant environment and atmosphere existed rather than dealing, as the Chief Law Officer of the Crown, with a condition of things in Ireland which, I think, are unparalleled in the history of that country...

Orders of the Day — Temperance (Wales) Bill. (26 Mar 1920)

Mr Thomas Griffiths: The majority of people in Wales are ripe for this Bill. A similar Bill was passed by this House in 1898, and in the Licensing Bill of 1908, as the Member for Paisley said, there was a clause that would put into operation immediately local veto for Wales. We are not asking for that now, because this Bill is not to be put into operation until 1926. The former Bill would have been in operation...

Orders of the Day — Government of Ireland Bill. (30 Mar 1920)

Sir Maurice Dockrell: ...in this Debate, but I have a very important duty to discharge because I happen to represent a section of the community in Ireland which would be more grievously affected than any other under this Bill. I have the honour to represent in this House, as the only Unionist Member south of the Boyne, 350,000 Protestants south of the Boyne, and a good many thousands of Catholics of moderate...

Private Business.: EDINBURGH BOUNDARIES EXTENSION AND TRAMWAYS BILL [Lords] — (By Order). (8 Jun 1920)

Mr William Graham: ...conclusion that the case of Leith is, partly at any rate, not going to be decided upon present-day facts. He quoted a long series of interesting incidents which had no particular reference to this Bill. I cannot hope as an inexperienced Member of this House to equal the hon. and gallant Gentleman either in his historical research or in the wit and power of his address to this assembly. But...

Orders of the Day — Supply [17TH Allotted Day].: Ministry of Health. (15 Jul 1920)

...of pounds being spent in building these cinemas. I do appeal to the right hon. Gentleman to get more drastic powers to deal with all these things. Power was given to local authorities in the Bill passed last year to obtain builders and labourers, but often local authorities make these things personal matters. They feel that if they veto these buildings, which belong to somebody they know,...

Orders of the Day — Safeguarding of Industries Bill. (6 Jun 1921)

Mr Stanley Baldwin: ...never forget him. We have arrived this afternoon at a further stage in our attempt to safeguard our industries. We have already had four or five days full Debate on the general principles of the Bill, which has now been formally introduced. I imagine that in those four or five days most of what can be urged against the principles of this Bill was urged. It is inevitable that in arguments...

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

Mr Gershom Stewart: ...in a Roman Catholic church. I would equally oppose a law being passed against the validity of a marriage which had not taken place in a Protestant church. In days gone by, in all previous Home Rule Bills, when the position between Ireland and this country was going to be very much closer than it is under this Treaty, Liberal statesmen took such precautions as they could to protect...

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

...—I use the word in its original and not in its derivative sense—and in helping those who support others instead of those who are supported by others. The only argument I have heard against this Bill is that a certain amount of rating will be lost, and that it will have to be made up by somebody else. I submit that is an entirely fallacious argument, and this reduction in rating may...

Civil Services Supplementary Estimate, 1922–23.: Clause 1. — (Power of Secretary of State to co-operate in schemes.) (22 May 1922)

Mr George Barnes: I welcome this Bill, because, in the first place, it seems to me to be calculated to weave bonds of mutual interest and sympathy between ourselves and the territories overseas I agree with the definition "commonwealth of nations," which has been given by an hon. Member, rather than the term "empire." We have now reached the stage when each of the overseas Dominions is a self-governing...

Orders of the Day — Economy (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill. (10 Jul 1922)

Mrs Margaret Wintringham: .... One does feel that so many branches are going to be cut down or curtailed that it is going to do very serious harm to the citizens of this country. But there is one particular par[...], of this Bill which, perhaps, appeals to me more than any other, and that is the question of education of children between five and six years of age. It is, however, a matter of satisfaction that the...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: Clause 1. — (Amendments of S. 4 of 12 & 13 Geo. 5 c. 7.) (13 Jul 1922)

Mr Arthur Hayday: I beg to move, in Subsection (1), to leave out the word "twenty-two," and to insert instead thereof the word "twenty-five." The Bill proposes to enlarge the period of benefit as set forth in the Act of April last. That Act provided for 15 weeks of benefit out of a total of 30 weeks up to the end of October, in periods of five weeks with benefit and five without. The. first period has now...

Orders of the Day — Intoxicating Liquor (Sale to Persons Under Eighteen) Bill. (9 Mar 1923)

Viscountess ASTOR: I beg to move, "That the Bill be now read a Second time." This Bill is not Lady Astor's Bill. Even what people were pleased to call "Lady Astor's Bill" was not Lady Astor's Bill it was a Bill introduced into the other House by the Bishop of Oxford. I, with some others, introduced it into this House, and it was made an issue at my election as Lady Astor's Bill, but even...

Orders of the Day — Liquor Traffic Prohibition Bill. (20 Apr 1923)

Dr Alfred Salter: I beg to second the Motion. I do not believe that the machinery and the method of the Bill are good. Indeed, I think that the machinery and the method are bad, but I am speaking on behalf of the Bill, in order to make a demonstration in favour of the principle of the prohibition of a dangerous drug, namely, alcohol. Personally, I think the attainment of that end could better be achieved by...
