Orders of the Day — Supply.: Ministry of Reconstruction. (27 Feb 1919)

Mr Robert McLaren: ...a most important thing that before deciding to put down any more bores the Geological Survey should be very certain they are boring in the proper measures, because if not, they will certainly not strike coal. There must have been a very large number of bores put down if £9,000 have been spent. I am very glad, indeed, that the Government are adopting this method of boring not only for coal...

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

Mr Winston Churchill: ...Force, the Yeomanry, and the Special Reserve, which we owe to Lord Haldane, which stood us in such good stead, and which would have served us better still if fully adhered to, or are we to strike out boldly for the organisation of a truly national Army which will gather together all the military experience that the civilian population of this country now possess, and provide a true unity...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Civil Services Supplementary Estimates, 1918–19. ( 4 Mar 1919)

Mr James Hogge: ...same thing—is that the disabled man in training has at the back of his head the notion that his labour is being exploited by the factory where he is being trained. There is, for example, to-day a strike in Dublin at the Government's instructional factory, affecting, I think, something like 250 disabled men who were supposed to be being trained in that factory to take up some further...

Orders of the Day — Supply. — [2ND Allotted Day.]: Payment of Members. ( 5 Mar 1919)

Sir Charles Edwards: ...those who were here representing Pacifists, Syndicalists, and Anarchists, when they found themselves defeated promptly said, "We will now resort to the direct method," meaning the weapon of the strike to enforce whatever might be their claims. [Hon. Members: "No!"] I am only quoting from speakers like the gentleman who used to sit for Leicester who is no longer here—

Orders of the Day — Supply. — [2ND Allotted Day.]: Conscientious Objectors. ( 5 Mar 1919)

Colonel Josiah Wedgwood: ...change certainly has been made. It is exemplified by the change in the governor of Wandsworth gaol. The Committee should understand that the conscientious objectors have a way of going on hunger strike to get out of prison. I do not know that I should like to go on a hunger strike myself, even to get out of prison, but possibly after two and a half years in gaol one does feel that way. All...

Oral Answers to Questions — Ireland.: Suppressed Publications. ( 6 Mar 1919)

Mr Joseph Devlin: ...this publication—composed of extracts, if he likes, from speeches of members of the Government, including the present Lord Chancellor—was circulated to the extent of 37,000 copies in the recent strike in Glasgow, and is there any reason why it should now be censored as regards the rest of the country?

Orders of the Day — Naval, Military and Air Force Service Bill. ( 6 Mar 1919)

Mr Stanley Holmes:, and public opinion then would not have assented to Conscription. Everything in this country, or almost everything, is in the end settled by instructed public opinion whether it is an industrial strike or whether it is Government legislation. In 1914 public opinion was not ready for Conscription, but by the beginning of 1916 it had been so far instructed as to assent to Conscription....

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

Mr Frederick Banbury: ...into the category. What happened in Coventry in May, 1917? The houses there belong to the Coventry Corporation, and on Sunday night effigies were burned of those tenants who would not join in the strike against the rent. The town clerk received an intimation from the Secretary of the Tenants' Defence League that the tenants at Stoke Heath had agreed to accept the offer to reduce the rent...

Supply. — [4TH Allotted Day.]: MR. Long's Statement. (12 Mar 1919)

Mr William Brace: the most powerful way possible his complaints and grievances with a view to having them redressed. We should be in a very difficult position if we granted the men of the Navy the right to strike. I can quite understand that Members of this House would stand aghast if I were to suggest at this table that the men of the Navy should have a right to strike. [An Hon. Member: "And to a...

Orders of the Day — Increase of Rent Bill.: Clause 6. — (Minor Amendments of the Principal Act.) (14 Mar 1919)

Mr James Rowlands: I do not think it would be wise to strike out the whole of these words, because they give the Court a very strong power to see that before the occupation is taken away from the existing tenant that there must be available accommodation in the locality. I think what the right hon. Gentleman has said might be strengthened by putting another word in place of the word "including."

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Ways and Communications Bill.: Unified Transportation Control. (17 Mar 1919)

Mr Donald Maclean: all very well, but we are dealing with a measure which goes to the very root and foundation of our commercial prosperity and future. If you are going to shove it through on those lines, you will strike a blow and drive a hole in the fabric of our commercial structure which it will not be easy to repair. There is no factious opposition but a whole-hearted offer to assist the Government....

Mr Ernest Meysey-Thompson: ...of remunerative employment for a great many other people in the district who otherwise would find it difficult to get that employment which is so necessary in times of demobilisation. A great strike, or strikes, will cause unemployment for the time being to enormous numbers of people all over the country. I wish I could make hon. Member realise this point as well as I myself realise it. I...
