Mr Alfred Short: ...for their labour. In my own Constituency in 1913 the standard rate of wages for labourers was 18s. per week and for eight weeks those men, with their families dependent upon them, went out on strike to secure an increase of a few shillings per week in those wages.

Orders of the Day — Checkweighing in Various Industries Bill. ( 2 May 1919)

Mr Thomas Grundy: weighed properly. It is merely a matter of equity and justice and one which the employers ought to be the first to welcome, because it is as much in their interest as in that of the workmen.

Mr Noel Billing: ...spoken and I myself have had occasion to call the attention of the House to the secrecy of the Home Office in all matters pertaining to German influences in this country.

I would, however, appeal to the representative...

If the right hon. and learned Gentleman raises once again the standard of revolt against...

Mr William Redmond: ...this time with the right hon. and learned Member for Duncairn (Sir E. Carson), that we should have been left in Ireland in precisely the same position as was mapped out for England. Why not let us strike a 1d. in the £ in Ireland, and let the British Treasury come along and supply the deficit?
