Clause 1. — (Power to Regulate Aerial Navigation.) (17 Feb 1919)

Major-General John Seely: ...for some time back as a proper term, and I cannot think of another. Air navigation, of course, has the objection that air is a substantive and not an adjective. My right hon. Friend tells me sea bathing has a substantive with it. It is perfectly possible that by the alteration of a title you may greatly inconvenience other possible words, but I will bear it in mind. If I can put it in on...

Oral Answers to Questions — Munitions.: Well Hall Estate Hutments (Rent). (19 Feb 1919)

The rents charged are 9s. 6d. for a bungalow of four rooms and a scullery, and 10s. where a bath is provided. These rents represent an economic return on less than 70 per cent. of the cost. From these rents a reduction of 2s. 6d. per week was allowed for a period of three months from the week beginning 31st December last, to meet the cost of extra coal, owing to complaints that some of the...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Treatment of Tuberculosis (Special Grants). (27 Feb 1919)

Sir Kingsley Wood: ...are unfit for occupation. I want to know whether any part of this £25,000 is available for making up that deficiency. Again, there are the cases of the insurance committees of Staffordshire and of Bath, where no provision at all is being made for ad- vanced cases. In fact, all over the country there are complaints of the absence of Parliamentary provision in respect of treatment for the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Demobilisation.: Somerset Regiment. (11 Mar 1919)

Sir Percy Hurd: ...being demobilised and returned home, many of them after long service and no home leave, he will endeavour to arrange that they shall be demobilised in drafts of 50 or 100 men at their headquarters, Bath, where the War hospital has been made the dispersal centre for the counties of Somerset and Gloucester, so as to permit of a public welcome by representatives of the county of Somerset as a...

Orders of the Day — Major-General Seely's Statement. (13 Mar 1919)

Mr William Joynson-Hicks: chairs, tables, and beds. I wonder whether he would be able to include arrangements for outdoor amusements and recreation, such as football grounds, cricket grounds, tennis courts, swimming baths, and the like. After all, a pilot cannot spend more than a couple of hours at the outside in the air, and very few are able to stand that. They may spend after that two or three hours at...

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Ways and Communications Bill.: Unified Transportation Control. (17 Mar 1919)

Sir Eric Geddes: ...before we get up. I have no doubt that the dream island of the trader is full of courteous canvassers offering cheap fares, light rates, and fast special trains. But when he has had his cold bath in the morning that goes. This is a cold bath which the country has got to take. The transportation agencies of the country to-day are barren and paralysed and we have got to get them right....

Oral Answers to Questions — Food Supplies.: National Kitchen, Marylebone. (20 Mar 1919)

Mr Charles McCurdy: The national kitchen to which the hon. Member refers is presumably that situated at the Public Baths, Seymour Place, Marylebone. It was recently decided by the Marylebone Borough Council that this kitchen should be closed owing to the fact that it was being run at a loss and that the premises were again required for use as public baths.I am fully in accord with the view that national kitchens...

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

Mr Bonar Law: ...coal extracted should be used for the purpose of improving housing in the mining districts, and that is one of the problems which this Commission seeks permission to deal with. Among the others are baths at the pit head, clearance, continuity of transport from the colliery, reduction of voluntary absenteeism, the use of machinery in mines, pooling of wagons, elimination of unnecessary...

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

Major Charles Ward-Jackson: ...Government knows it perfectly well, from hand to mouth for years and years. Innumerable statesmen have endeavoured to deal with it; they have dabbled their toes in cold water without taking a cold bath, which they were so strongly recommended to do by the right hon. Member for Cambridge on the occasion of the Debate on another measure the other night. They have not succeeded in taking that...

Oral Answers to Questions — Demobilisation.: Somersetshire Light Infantry. (2 Apr 1919)

Mr Winston Churchill: The cadres of the 1/4th Somersetshire Light Infantry are under orders to return to the United Kingdom, though it is not yet known definitely when they will arrive. Their destination will be Bath, and the earliest intimation of date and probable time of their arrival will be conveyed to the civic authorities of that city when the time comes.

Supply. — [7TH Allotted Day.]: Chief Secretary for Ireland. (3 Apr 1919)

Sir James Macpherson: cheap and economical as possible, and with that in view we have offered a prize for the best plan for a cheap house in three grades of houses. I am glad to think every house will provide for a bath room and a wash-house. There is no reason, therefore, why the local authorities should not at once begin to cope with the demand for 50,000 houses. If this scheme is loyally carried out with...

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

Mr Noel Billing: ...discussing this matter to the exclusion of almost every other subject, and, of course, I came up against all forms of criticism. Some of of them say, "What is the good of giving the working man a bath, because he only puts his coals in it." Of course, I know that is the rather fatuous argument that one hears on various sides, and they say it is no use trying to provide for these people...

Orders of the Day — Housing and Town Planning Bill. (8 Apr 1919)

Sir Martin Conway: ...of antiquity and of their provision for the glory as well as the comfort and entertainment of their populations. I should like to take a deputation of miners to the city of Rome and show them the baths of Caracalla. Why not erect in every mining centre something of the same kind? For £40,000,000 one could cover the country wtih these things. Why not have, not the holes in which the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Munitions.: Explosives, Dinas Mawddwy. (10 Apr 1919) view of the public necessity of producing bricks on the largest possible scale. The rest will come from Corsham, Wilts, where the magazine has to be relinquished owing to an agreement with the Bath Portland Stone Quarry Company. It is impossible for this quarry to be worked until these explosives are removed. It is impossible to find storage accommodation for this explosive at a more...

Orders of the Day — Statement of Rates Bill. (11 Apr 1919)

...can prevent his paying his share of the extravagance of which he is in favour. Only yesterday or the day before an hon. Member opposite said he would like to see something analogous to the baths of Caracalla in every ward of every town in England.

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

Colonel Josiah Wedgwood: ...present. What is happening in Hungary? Since the starting of the Soviet Government they have set up a maximum thirty-six-hours week for apprentices; 37,000 children have been provided with a free bath weekly, and all the hospitals have become public, preference being given to proletarian patients. I suppose the next thing we shall hear of will be an expedition to Budapest to succour the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Military Patients (Housing at Harrogate). (1 May 1919)

12. To ask the Pensions Minister if he is aware that the West Riding War Pensions Committee have 150 men suffering from rheumatism undergoing treatment at the Royal Baths, Harrogate; that the men are billeted in houses in the town, and that there is discontent amongst them owing to the fact that they are not treated as in-patients of an institution; and, in view of the fact that the Ministry...

Orders of the Day — Housing and Town Planning (Scotland) Bill. (5 May 1919)

Sir William Cheyne: ...mortality than to the industrial towns, although in those towns I fancy there is a good deal of overcrowding. Take, for instance, Bournemouth, where you have a mortality of seventy-two per 1,000. Bath has a mortality of fifty-nine per 1,000, while the rate in St. Albans is fifty-two per 1,000, Tunbridge Wells seventy-nine, and so on. In another set of statistics in France the matter was...

Oral Answers to Questions — Convalescent Soldiers (Accommodation). (8 May 1919)

Mr Worthington Evans: ...have suggests that the fullest use has not yet been made of the accommodation available. The West Riding Committee have been informed that there is accommodation to be had at the Royal Northern Sea Bathing Infirmary, Scarborough, and arrangements are also being made for the reception of fifty cases at the Red Cross Hospital at Saltburn, and this additional accommodation will, I hope, be...
