Orders of the Day — Aerial Nawigation Bill.: Clause 3. — (Short Title and Duration.) (21 Feb 1919)

Major-General John Seely: ...represented at the Conference in Paris. It will be, to an ever-increasing degree, aviation business will become civil rather than military, and if all goes well civil aviation will become the main business of the Air Ministry. It will become of far greater importance than the military side. For the moment, of course, the military side engages far more attention, because we are still at...

Orders of the Day — Supply. — [First Allotted Day.]: Number of Land Forces. (3 Mar 1919)

Mr Winston Churchill: ...These men—mostly of the older and less physically efficient categories of our Army—under the leadership of a gallant Labour Member, whom we all know so well, the hon. Member for Stoke (Colonel John Ward), whose conduct throughout this War, and in widely different situations of extreme difficulty, has been invariably of the, highest order—these men, grouped around his personality,...

Orders of the Day — Supply. — [2ND Allotted Day.]: Munitions — National Factories. (5 Mar 1919)

Mr Frederick Kellaway: ...of Munitions the industries of this country would now be run by the Junkers of the German Empire. I hope that is not a prospect which would fill him with any satisfaction. We have completed the main task for which the Ministry of Munitions was set up. It no longer has to engage or is engaging in the production of great masses of war material, but the very success with which the Ministry of...

Orders of the Day — Increase of Rent Bill (7 Mar 1919)

Mr John Lorden: ...had any dealings with rating know that the basis that is worked upon is the rental of adjoining or similar houses, and this principle therefore is one which is well defined and which can be well maintained. Many speakers have alluded to this Bill as dealing with the housing of the working classes, but I read it as dealing with rateable value up to £55 per annum, and, on the ordinary...

Orders of the Day — Increase of Rent Bill.: Clause 2. — (Limited Power of Increasing Rents During the Extended Period.) (11 Mar 1919)

Mr John Hopkins: There are two small points on which I should like to hear the Attorney-General's opinion. I am glad the Committee has arrived at a solution of the main point. I should like to know what there is in this Bill or in the law generally to compel a sanitary authority to grant this certificate, because this is going to be a considerable burden upon the sanitary authority. It will probably...

Orders of the Day — Major-General Seely's Statement. (13 Mar 1919)

Mr John Sturrock: I am very glad that the right hon. Gentleman the Member for Peebles (Sir D. Maclean) has brought us back to the question of expenditure, which is one of the main considerations which we ought to have before us in this Committee. While I am sure the Committee would gladly grant every penny that is required on this or any future occasion for the purpose of securing the place which we already...

Orders of the Day — CONSOLIDATED FUND (No. 1) BILL. (19 Mar 1919)

Mr John Clynes: ...of them frankly declare that they are not going to begin work on such wages as they can earn—onwhat they say are pre-war terms of pay, which certain employers are offering them, when they can remain in a state of idleness, receiving for themselves and their families an income even, in excess of what they could earn if they were employed. That is a matter which requires immediate...

Oral Answers to Questions — Demobilisation.: Release of Fishermen. (20 Mar 1919)

Mr Archibald Williamson: 106. asked the First Lord of the Admiralty if he is aware that the following fishermen from the Moray Firth, George Main, George Campbell, Edward M'Leod, John Stewart, Robert Cordiner, Leishman Stewart, William Mone, William M'Pherson, and John Kinnaird, who enlisted in the Royal Naval Reserve in August, 1914, are still employed on H.M.S. "Resource," stationedat Methil, in connection with...

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

Sir John Butcher: ..., and only a possibility of productive work coming from it. Take, for instance, Clause 16 of the Bill, which imposes upon county councils and borough councils the duty of providing employment and maintenance for unemployed persons until the Minister of Labour deals with such questions. Then the councils are told that they must make provision to ensure that the applicant and those legally...

Clause 2. — (Limited Power of Increasing Rents during the Extended Period.) (25 Mar 1919)

Sir John Marriott: ...—in many cases the very pitiable plight—of owners of small house property. I cannot help thinking that even now the House very imperfectly apprehends the class of landlords with whom, in the main, this Bill is intended to deal. They are not the bloated millionaires, the bloated landowners who are supposed to be exclusively represented in another place. That is not the class of landlord...

Russia. (25 Mar 1919)

Mr Winston Churchill: ...and technical advisers in regard to the supply of complicated war material. General Denikin's Army has sustained a heavy reverse on its left flank in the advance of the Bolshevik attack, though the main recent attack has gone more to the west, falling more on the French and Greeks, and, as I told the House in introducing the Army Estimates, he has gained considerable success by striking...

Orders of the Day — Naval, Military, and Air Force Service. (31 Mar 1919)

Mr John Wallace: ...right hon. Friend, but our methods of achieving those objects are entirely different and divergent. May I say a single word about the general Army of Occupation? Our Army is there now, and will remain until Germany has finally accepted whatever terms we care to impose. I take it, therefore, that my right hon. Friend has in view the keeping of an Army in Germany in order that Germany may...

Army (Annual) Bill. (31 Mar 1919)

Mr John Jones: ...—[HON. MEMBEES: "NO!"]—but I want hon. Members—I made a mistake the other evening in calling them gentlemen—to realise the fact. The argument has been put forward this evening that we must maintain discipline. How is it that this discipline does not apply to those in authority in the Army? How many officers have been tied to the gun wheel? [An HON. MEMBER: "They are shot!"] They...

Orders of the Day — Women's Emancipation Bill. (4 Apr 1919)

Mr John Campbell: ...vote without explaining my position and declaring to the House that I am absolutely pledged to the principle of this Bill. The arguments in favour of this principle, it seems to me, can be divided mainly under two heads—first, the industrial and economic arguments, about which most has been said this afternoon, and, secondly, the moral arguments, which, in my opinion, are of even more...

Orders of the Day — Statement by DR. Addison. (7 Apr 1919)

Mr John Davison: ...and upper classes is seventy-seven per thousand. It is strange that in a highly civilised country like Great Britain you cannot secure for the whole of the population, in view of the necessity for maintaining the strength of its manhood and womanhood, especially at the present time, conditions such as are accorded to the medical fraternity. These are some of the things that strike me as...

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

Mr John Walters: ...as sound, it seems to me that in Committee we can put in the necessary safeguards and give the necessary extension and amplification. The same with the public utility societies. I believe the main principles in the Government scheme are good, but you want some revision as far as the private builder is concerned, and I am certain the hon. Member who spoke last put his finger on one of the...

Pensions for Mothers. (8 Apr 1919)

Mr John Remer: ...what the firm subscribed, there was something like £300 subscribed for her. She invested that £300, foolishly as I thought at the time, in a shop. The shop was a failure in a very few years, mainly through her bad business methods, and she was practically destitute again. What chance is there for a woman of that kind? I see very little prospect of any chance for her in life. In giving...

Oral Answers to Questions — Russia.: Experiments on Animals. (10 Apr 1919)

Sir John Butcher: ...Home Secretary whether it is the practice of the Home Office, upon certain certificates being obtained, to allow experiments on dogs in which the dog is kept alive after the experiment until the main object of the experiment has been attained, although the dog is found to be suffering severe pain, or pain which is likely to endure?

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

Mr John Sturrock: I rise mainly to support, with any small weight that I have, the excellent argument put forward by my right hon. Friend. It would be ex- tremely damaging if we were to allow this Bill to fail or to lapse this afternoon and were not to give it a Second Reading. Public opinion on this matter has advanced very markedly in Scotland during the past five years. It is notorious that in almost every...

Easter Recess (Adjournment). (16 Apr 1919)

Mr John Clynes: ...not be undermined and destroyed by the low level of the state of things in certain other manufacturing countries in the remote parts of the world. Indeed, I think we shall find it very difficult to maintain our high standard if at the same time we do not, either by international action or by some other method, make it impossible for the sweated goods of other parts of the world to come...
