Debate on the Address. (11 Feb 1919)

Mr David Lloyd George: .... These disturbances are interfering with the making of peace, and they are making it difficult to make peace. Every morning before I went to the Peace Conference I had messages from London about a strike, and when I returned in the evening about another strike, Trade Union leaders thrown over, and bargains repudiated. I do not mind saying it, I think it would have been to the advantage of...

Mr William Brace: ...labour into disastrous action, but to go to the root of the matter with a view to bringing about a remedy for the solution of the problem.

King's Speech.: Agriculture. (14 Feb 1919)

Lieut-General Edward Fitzroy: them was the tremendous amount of work they had to put in in order to make a profitable occupation of their small holding.

Aerial Navigation Bill. (17 Feb 1919)

Mr Oswald Mosley: ...this word "certification" imply any desire on the part of the Government to confine firms engaged in this work to any particular officially approved design.

Housing.: Notices to Quit. (17 Feb 1919)

Mr Alfred Yeo: I desire to call attention to a matter which is giving a great deal of concern to a class of the population who cannot very well air their grievances by a strike or a revolution.

I may add that the...

Orders of the Day — Procedure Rules.: Government Proposals. (18 Feb 1919)

Mr George Renwick: ...2,000. Why? Because large numbers of the men are out of work, at a time when they are making more money than ever they made in their lives before. I got out the return of the wages of these men on strike The labourers, even, were earning £5 10s. a week, without overtime, and the others up to £7 or £10 a week, and they were out on strike on a trumpery question. For God's sake, let us get...

Mr David Lloyd George:, that they will throw the whole of the industries of this country into confusion and disaster for the sake of sixteen days. Let me point out what these sixteen days mean. Sixteen days' strike under present conditions would see the majority of the industries of this country closed down, and the Government would have to feed the community with such fuel as was at its disposal. If...

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

Mr Walter Elliot: ...our hearty support in this matter. Yesterday and on previous days, when I have been listening to the Debates in this House, and in particular when I heard the Debates respecting the impending coal strike, it struck me that the Minister who had the greatest right to be heard was the one who has not yet so far been created. If anybody has a right to speak on the impending coal strike, surely...
