Mr Joseph Devlin: Will the right hon. Gentleman inform the House what is a lightning strike?

Orders of the Day — CONSOLIDATED FUND (No.1) BILL: Agriculture. (20 Mar 1919)

Mr Walter Smith: ...previous to the War than it had been for some years. In the county of Norfolk some of the agricultural labourers asked for an increase of wages from 13s. to 14s. They wererefused. When they went on strike they were kept out for months, because the farmers would not concede the shilling a week, making the total 14s. Therefore I cannot accept the suggestion that this great interest has...

Orders of the Day — Coal Industry.: Government Decision. (20 Mar 1919)

Mr Bonar Law: ...made in connection with the coal industry. But the House must see that that does not now depend on the Government. We have said that we will adopt this Report so far as we are concerned. But if strikes take place, of course the Commission inevitably comes to an end; it is quite obvious it cannot go on sitting under such circumstances. I am sure of this, that the miners' leaders never had...

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

Mr David Irving: ...that he may lose, at the hands of his employer, who thinks otherwise, his right to maintain his livelihood? Much more so from the industrial point of view is a man free when, if he dare to lead a strike against unjust conditions of employment, as he considers them and has a right to consider them, merely because he has helped to conduct that strike, and when, in the main, he has been among...

Orders of the Day — Medical Treatment of Children (Ireland) Bill. (24 Mar 1919)

Mr Edward Carson: ...medically consistent, and to do the thing in such a way so that the child will be kept fit and get the greatest possible benefit. I hope the Government will consider whether they might not strike out what is, I think, an invidious and unnecessary Clause in the Bill. May I add this one general observation as to the existing state of elementary education in Ireland? You will never make any...

Oral Answers to Questions — Naval and Military Pensions and Grants.: Conscientious Objectors. (25 Mar 1919)

Colonel Josiah Wedgwood: 44. asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he is aware that K. H. Birtles, a conscientious objector who was on hunger strike in Wandsworth Prison, was kept without water from dinner-time on Sunday, 2nd March, till tea-time on Monday, 3rd March; and whether, in view of the instructions sent to the officials at Wandsworth Prison, he proposes to take any action in the matter?

Clause 1. — (Power to Prolong Period of Naval, Military, or Air Force Service.) (25 Mar 1919)

Mr James Hogge: ...Prime Ministers, and conscripted soldiers were used to interfere in industrial disputes. As a matter of fact, soldiers were used only recently in our own country, when we were threatened by a strike in the electrical industry here in London, and trains were run by the military. There, of course, is obviously a difficult situation and likely to provoke a conflict which one wants to avoid....

Clause 1. — (Power to Prolong Period of Naval, Military, or Air Force Service.) (26 Mar 1919)

Mr Charles Stanton: in the same position to-day to enforce justice and fair play. Already on the Continent they are closely watching what is going on in this country. They are looking to the threatened industrial strike here, and the Bolsheviks all over the Continent are anxiously waiting to see us lessen our power to grip the situation. Bolshevism is becoming more rampant. We have seen signs of it even in...

Agricultural Reconstruction.: Board of Agriculture (Organisation). (26 Mar 1919)

Major Charles Ward-Jackson: ...that was to the question of Free Trade, which involved, in our opinion, unfair competition. Since the War I think we have to a certain extent changed our view, and I am not so sure that it did not strike me last night that the question of doing away with Free Trade would not be a panacea for all these evils. We must look deeper, and we must look into the reason given last night by the hon....

Oral Answers to Questions — Demobilisation.: Coal Supply. (31 Mar 1919)

Major NEWMAN: 13. asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he can say how many of those employed in the coal-mining and allied industries are now on strike; and whether the action of this section of organised labour is responsible for the further drastic curtailment of the amount of coal available for the householder?

Orders of the Day — Notices of Motion.: Clause 12. — (Penalty for Causing Disaffection, etc.) ( 2 Apr 1919)

Mr Winston Churchill: ...under the Army Council. I imagine that hon. Gentlemen opposite have thought that that might contemplate the enrolment of a large body of civilians under the Army Council for the purpose of strike-breaking or something like that. We have never contemplated anything of the sort. These words are intended to apply to Queen Mary's Auxiliary Army Corps and to the Women's Royal Air Force. [An...

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

Mr John Davison: ...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 being due not entirely, perhaps, but largely to bad housing conditions. I claim on behalf of the Labour party that the main contributory cause of that high infantile mortality is...

Oral Answers to Questions — Peace Conference.: Coal Commission. (14 Apr 1919)

Sir Robert Horne: I have been asked to answer this question. The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative. I am not aware that any strike took place for the reason stated, and the third part of the question, therefore, does not arise.

Aliens Restriction Bill (15 Apr 1919)

Mr Edward Shortt: ...will succeed in its purpose, that no alien who happens to be living in this country and is a member of a trade union bonâ fide engaged in any industry shall suffer in any way by taking, part in a strike. This provision only applies to an alien who is not bonâ fide engaged in an industry and who has come here with a definite purpose, whether a trade or political purpose, to stir up unrest...

Oral Answers to Questions — Egypt.: Public Security. (16 Apr 1919)

...I mention this as it has been suggested that the Foreign Office have suppressed information which has later reached this country through the channels of the Press. General Allenby reports that the strike of Government employés still continues, but that the new Ministry are endeavouring to reach a settlement with the strikers. There appears to be strong opposition on the part of moderate...

Peace Conference.: Situation in Russia. (16 Apr 1919)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: that the creation of these small States in a self-supporting condition is a matter of enormous importance to this country, and in the creation of each one of these small States we shall have to strike a balance between national security and this principle of self-determination. If we strike the wrong balance, and these States are set up on a weak basis, it is perfectly certain that...

Easter Recess (Adjournment). (16 Apr 1919)

Captain John Jameson:, and the policy of keeping up a defensive war against Bolsheviks is the policy of all defensive wars. The best form of the defensive is the offensive, and I think it would pay the Government to strike a blow at the vitals of Bolshevism and prevent it running over Europe.

Agriculture.: Government Policy. (30 Apr 1919)

...prices which are brought about by the wholesale importation of foreign cereals, nor will they place the farmers in a good enough position to enable them to pay the wages which are rising with such striking rapidity. Before passing from this, I would like to say that the demands of the agricultural labourers have my entire sympathy, but how can this industry be called upon to pay those...

Oral Answers to Questions — Egypt.: Cabinet (Resignation). ( 1 May 1919)

Mr William Ormsby-Gore: 4. asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he will state why the Egyptian. Cabinet has again resigned; whether the greater portion of the Egyptian Government officials are still on strike; and whether steps are being taken to bring those responsible for attacks upon persons and upon the property of the Egyptian State railways and other offenders to a trial and punishment?
