Orders of the Day — Liquor Traffic (Restrictions) (24 Feb 1920)

Mr James Thomas: ...that the maximum efficiency was not being given. The statistics of drunkenness for the month prior to the calling into existence of the Board showed a weekly average for males of 1,287 in the Metropolitan area alone.

Orders of the Day — Coal Mines (Emergency) Bill. (17 Feb 1920)

Mr Stanley Holmes: not the only black spot in the record of the Board of Trade. In July last we had the Yorkshire coal strike, when the Board issued, in a panic, orders that export must cease and no one in the Metropolitan area must buy more than 3 cwts. of coal a week, orders which were withdrawn almost as quickly as they were issued. That strike was due to the fact that when the hours were reduced on...

Mr James Wignall:, nevertheless, a subject worthy of consideration. It is in regard to the position of the ranker-officer in the Army. What is that position to-day? What is his future to be to-morrow? What is the policy and attitude of the War Office regarding him? Ours is a democratic Army, or at least it ought to be. There should be a clear course for the young fellow joining as a private to reach, by...

Mr James Dawes:, thus throwing such persons on to the local rates; and whether, as the internment and repatriation of the above-mentioned aliens was a national and not a local measure, is it the Board's policy that the maintenance of their dependants should be provided by the Exchequer, particularly as the majority of such dependants will become chargeable on the poorer Metropolitan unions?

Mr Arthur Steel-Maitland: ...weekly wage, but that they really have the right to take an interest in the industry, to understand what the industry is, and to have a share-in the management and a knowledge of and a share in the policy and control.

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

Sir Richard Cooper: ...But there are three other reasons which are in themselves important. First of all, it is an extraordinary thing that the Government should submit the Bill to the House, saying frankly, "We have no policy. We will take charge of all these great transport services for two years., and by that time we hope we shall manage to discover how they really ought to be worked, and then be able to...

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

Mr Samuel Hoare: ...reason to doubt what he says, and I should not dream of doing so—that is what the Government intended. Then why did they not make it clear at the time?

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

Sir John Marriott: ...which the rents were fixed. There is no Member of this House who is not aware that in a very large number of cases—I think this is particularly true of some of the towns in or just outside the Metropolitan area—single rooms have been let at rents far in excess of the total rent received by the landlord. My hon. and gallant Friend opposite wants the 10 per cent. increase reduced to5....

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

Mr Herbert Fisher: ...little was heard of it, it was yet sufficiently general and sufficiently acute where it does occur to justify the extension of the principal Act.

While the Government have...
