Preamble (5 Feb 1919)

Right honourable John Murray Macdonald, Stirling and Falkirk District of Burghs.

Debate on the Address. (11 Feb 1919)

We beat back her attack on Egypt, and swept her back from the Mediterranean and Palestine territories. Single-handed, we wrested the German colonies from our enemies, and with our Japanese allies...

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Health Bill. (26 Feb 1919)
