Preamble (5 Feb 1919)

William Joynson-Hicks, esquire, County of Middlesex (Twickenham Division).

Aerial Navigation Bill. (17 Feb 1919)

...in connection with similar Bills. It is that these Regulations for all practical purposes are made without any power in this House of controlling them in any way. My hon. Friend the Member for Twickenham (Mr. Joynson-Hicks) says that the ownership of the air is in the owner of the land. It is an ownership from the centre of the earth right up into the skies as far as you can get. I very...

Oral Answers to Questions — Aliens.: Repatriation and Exclusion. (18 Feb 1919)

Mr Edward Shortt: As I stated on Thursday last in reply to a question by the hon. Member for Twickenham, the general policy is that of general repatriation of interned enemies, and this is now being carried out as quickly as shipping facilities permit. If any are allowed to remain here it will only be for reasons of an exceptional character.

Orders of the Day — Procedure Rules.: Government Proposals. (19 Feb 1919)

Viscount Wolmer: ...Amendment moved by my right hon. Friend is negatived, which I hope it will not be, it would not then cut out the Amendment standing in the names of my hon. Friends the Members for Wood Green and Twickenham, and other Amendments which involves quite distinct points? I ask whether this Amendment can be put partially from the Chair, or whether we are to be allowed to have a general discussion...

Oral Answers to Questions — Demobilisation.: Students. (25 Feb 1919)

Mr Winston Churchill: I would refer my right hon. Friend to the answer given to the hon. Member for Twickenham an this subject on Wednesday last, to the effect that the answer is in the affirmative, unless the men referred to are otherwise eligible for demobilisation under the provision of the Army Orders in question.

Oral Answers to Questions — Housing.: Statement by MR. Bonar Law. (4 Mar 1919)

Mr Bonar Law: I have no information on the subject of the question of my hon. Friend the Member for Twickenham, but am having it inquired into. The Government have decided to introduce a Bill to prolong the duration of the Rent Restriction Act until the expiration of one year from the termination of the present War, but after the time when the present Act would have expired, to allow rent to be increased...

Oral Answers to Questions — Naval and Military Pensions and Grants.: Alien Enemies Interned. (5 Mar 1919)

Mr Hamar Greenwood: ...this question. The general policy with regard to interned alien enemies is to repatriate them, as the Home Secretary stated in this House on the 13th February in answer to the hon. Member for the Twickenham Division. It is already the rule in the civilian internment camps that inmates are not allowed to send out letters asking for employment in this country, and notices prohibiting the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Food Supplies.: Sorting Clerk, York (Sick Pay). (18 Mar 1919)

Mr Albert Illingworth: .... As regards the position of men invalided from the forces, I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given on the 10th instant by the Financial Secretary to the Treasury to the hon. Member for Twickenham.

Orders of the Day — Notices of Motion.: Ministry of Ways and Communications Bill. (18 Mar 1919)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: ...hon. Gentleman will in Committee amend Clause 9 so as to make this point quite clear. The only other point on which I wish to say a word is the agitation which was got up by the hon. Member for Twickenham (Mr. Joynson-Hicks), who appears to have invented a new political Road Party. I listened to his case this afternoon, and I did not find it very conclusive. He assumed that the Minister...

Ministry of Ways and Communications [Money]. (28 Mar 1919)

Sir Charles Edwards: ...came to do this. They said, "We do not know. We were wired to to send telegrams." I asked who had sent the wires. They said they were sent by certain people, one of whom was the hon. Member for Twickenham (Mr. Joynson-Hicks).

Orders of the Day — Electricity Supply Bill: MR. Shortt's Statement. (14 May 1919)

...fact that they can always find amongst their suppporters someone to move the rejection of any measure that they may bring forward. I think the standard of revolt was raised by the hon. Member for Twickenham (Mr. Joynson-Hicks) who was followed by the right hon. Member for Duncairn (Sir E. Carson). I feel that I am in excellent company, and perhaps on this occasion it may have some effect...

Orders of the Day — Electricity Supply [Money]. (4 Jun 1919)

Mr John Gretton: ...allow the Resolution to go through un-amended, thereby undertaking the very vast expenditure involved. On those grounds I beg to move the Amendment which stands in the name of the hon. Member for Twickenham (Mr. Joynson-Hicks). The sum of £5,000,000 would give the Minister opportunity to exercise his powers, and it is unreasonable and improper that any Minister should under the present...

Oral Answers to Questions — Sir George Gibb. (5 Jun 1919)

Mr. CHAMBERLAIN: I would refer the hon. Member to my reply to the hon. Member for Twickenham on the 22nd May as to the arrangement made with Sir George Gibb. No charge will fall on public funds in respect of Sir George Gibb's services to the North Eastern Railway Company whilst he draws his salary as Chairman of the Road Board.

Orders of the Day — Electricity Supply [Money]. (26 Jun 1919)

Mr Arthur Neal: I listened with great interest to the speeches made by the hon. Member for Hampstead (Mr. G. Balfour), and the hon. Member for Twickenham (Mr. Joynson-Hicks), and they did not in the smallest degree conceal the fact that they were using this money resolution as another opportunity of showing their dislike to the whole subject matter of the Bill. The House on Second Reading, however, accepted...

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Ways and Communications Bill: New Clause — (Saving for Statutory Harbour, Dock, and Pier Authorities.) (1 Jul 1919)

Sir Eric Geddes: As the Leader of the House and my hon. Friend the Member for Twickenham have already told the House, this Clause formed the subject of discussion last night and this morning between the Government and those representing a large block of Members of the House. The Clause which my hon. Friend the Member for Twickenham read has been agreed between us, and is now submitted to the House. In order...

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Ways and Communications Bill: New Clause. — (Complaints to Railway and Canal Commission as to Undue Disadvantage.) (1 Jul 1919)

Mr Edward Shortt: This Clause as it stands goes a great deal further than anything which is contained in the Act referred to by my hon. Friend the Member for Twickenham. That Act provides for the case of a railway company which has any system connected with two separate and individual docks, and which gives a preference to one of them. Suppose, for instance, that a railway company serving the docks at Hull and...

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Ways and Communications Bill: New Clause. — (Roads Advisory Committee.) (1 Jul 1919)

Mr James Lowther: I am not sure that the Amendment of the hon. and learned Member for Twickenham (Mr. Joynson-Hicks) would not come better as an Amendment to Clause 17. But perhaps it is a matter of taste, and he may prefer to move it now. Clause brought up, and read the first time.

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Ways and Communications Bill: New Clause. — (Right of Traders to Appeal to Railway and Canal Commission.) (1 Jul 1919)

Sir William Pearce: ...public. This matter is of considerable importance, and so long as the Home Secretary will deal with it in another place, I do not want to press him now, but I want to support the hon. Member for Twickenham in assuring the Government that this is a point which is viewed with considerable anxiety by chambers of commerce and the trading community generally.

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

Mr George Balfour: ...tramways and light railways. The various undertakings mentioned in the paragraph have been protected to a large extent by the Clause adjusted between Ministers and my hon. Friend the Member for Twickenham (Mr. Joynson-Hicks) yesterday, but no protection whatever has been given or indicated in respect of tramways and light railways. The House has not informed itself of the true position of...

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Ways and Communications Bill.: Clause 8. — (Power to Establish Transport Services.) (7 Jul 1919)

Mr Frederick Banbury: ...quite delusive. It affords practically no, or very little, precaution. It is absolutely necessary in the interests of economy that the Clause should be amended. I am glad to see the hon. Member for Twickenham (Mr. Joynson-Hicks) in his place, because in Committee upstairs he was in charge of the Debate when the understanding was arrived at that the amount should be limited to £1,000,000....
