Orders of the Day — Dogs' Protection Bill.: Clause 1. — (prohibition of Experiments upon Dogs.) (23 May 1919)

Major Gilbert McMicking: ...friend, who is wholly in his power, to suffer, and he ought not to attempt it. To carry out experiments on dogs is to sanction a principle which, if carried to its logical conclusion, would strike at the very roots of liberty, inasmuch that it attacks just those very qualities of justice, of mercy and of respect for the rights of the weak which alone stand between us and unmitigated barbarism.

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Health Bill: Clause 6. — (Staff and Remuneration.) (26 May 1919)

Sir Gerald Hohler: ...right hon. Friend who leads the Liberal Opposition is not quite happy about it, because he asks for an undertaking in regard to some other Ministry. Let us divide and take a strong line, and let us strike for economy. Everybody wants to patronise somebody else. It is the same in the country, and it is a great cause of unsettlement. How can we say that these demands are unreasonable and...

Mr William Coote: ...have effective administration in county and district council work in Ireland if you eliminate the district chairmen from the county council.

Orders of the Day — Clause 19. — (Power of Contributing to Costs Incurred by Public Utility Societies and Housing Trusts.) (27 May 1919)

Mr Neville Chamberlain: .... If they consider that these rents are unreasonable—and they generally do come to that conclusion—then they put up a notice in the window to the rent collectors: "Don't call here. Rent strike on." I do not know what the local authorities think of their proceedings. At any rate, they have the rates behind them. But what is going to happen to public utility societies if they are faced...

Orders of the Day — Discharged Soldiers (Employment).: Demonstration at Westminster. (28 May 1919)

Mr George Wardle: put up. But if they did so, who would be the first to complain if the national factories were to be set up with all kinds of unskilled or semiskilled men to make doors? There would probably be a strike of those who were entitled to say that they ought to be employed in making these doors. There are only so many skilled men in the country, and the amount of joiners out of work at present...

Orders of the Day — War Office Circular. (29 May 1919)

Mr Charles Jesson: ...introduced its Bill setting up the Coal Commission, and I noticed that one medical Member after another rose in his place in the House and warned the Government of what would happen if there was a strike of colliers. I can well understand that if the people of this country had been deprived of coal at that particular time the death-rate from influenza alone would have been something...

Orders of the Day — Federal Devolution.: Creation of Subordinate Legislatures. ( 4 Jun 1919)

Sir Frederick Young: ...Government. Under the Australian system the compromise, which is unfortunate, is something like this: Each State controls the industrial affairs which are strictly within its borders. That is, if a strike occurs in any one State, that State alone has the control of that strike, and can legislate in respect of it. The central Parliament can only intervene where a strike passes from one...

Orders of the Day — Whitsuntide Recess (Adjournment).: Metropolitan Police. ( 6 Jun 1919)

Mr Frank Briant: I wish to turn to quite another subject. The House has not had an opportunity of discussing the facts in connection with the strike which was threatened by the police. There is no one inside the House, and I hope there are very few outside, who are not very glad, indeed, that that strike was averted, all except that small minority of individuals who prefer revolution to redress. I am...

Supply — [19TH May].: Ministry of Shipping. (24 Jun 1919)

Lieut-Colonel Leslie Wilson: consequence of labour troubles, with the necessary corollary that there has been severe congestion at the ports. Another reason undoubtedly has been the shortage of coal and the threatened coal strike had a very serious effect on the reconditioning of ships, because we had to prepare for any eventuality that might take place had such a strike occurred. Then, of course, there was the...

Trade and Commerce.: Restrictions on Imports. (24 Jun 1919)

Sir John Pennefather: ...employed by the business men, and unless business men know what the policy of the Government is they cannot make ahead those plans which are going to find employment for the working classes. If you strike out the business men you also have to strike out the working men, and what is left of the general public? I do not think we can quite accept that. I maintain that this indecision and...

Orders of the Day — Supply. — [14TH Allotted Day.]: DR. Addison's Statement. (30 Jun 1919)

Hon. Waldorf Astor: ...House as a whole. It is, probably, partly because hon. Members do not wish on an occasion like this, on the last day when we appear here as officially connected with the Local Government Board, to strike anything like a note of hostility or criticism. It is also, I think, because of a recognition of the fact that we are already trying to deal with the points which have been raised. I am...

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Ways and Communications Bill.: Clause 3. — (Power to Control Temporarily Railways, etc.) ( 2 Jul 1919)

Lord Robert Cecil: proceed to a Division on his Amendment, but I hope that that will not be the case, because, as has been pointed out by an hon. Member on the Labour Benches, it would be quite impossible to strike this Sub-section out of the Bill without reducing the whole Bill to an absolute unmeaning set of phrases. You could not take out the Sub-section without destroying the Bill. While I do not...

Orders of the Day — National Health Insurance Bill. ( 3 Jul 1919)

Major Alexander Farquharson: ...years and years been allowed 2s. 6d. for notifying an infectious disease. In 1916 some officious person said, "We will exploit the medical profession and save a lot of money to the State; we will strike out this miserable 2s. 6d. for giving a professional opinion upon a professional document and sending it to an official, and will make it Is. "I say that is an outrageous attitude to take...
