Orders of the Day — Widows', Orphans' and Old Age Contributory Pensions Bill. (31 Oct 1929)

Lady Cynthia Mosley: to see them considered. Perhaps they can be brought up on the Committee stage. As to the objections to this Bill, I have listened to all the Debate this afternoon and I have read the Press references to this Bill, and so far as I can make it out these objections come roughly under three heads. The first objection is, from people who are appalled at the cost to the State. The second...

Orders of the Day — King's Speech.: Debate on the Address. (9 Nov 1928)

Mr David Lloyd George: ...from the land. You talk about national reconstruction, but—I am sorry to say it—you will never reconstruct until you reconstruct that Ministry. I hate making any personal attacks or personal references, but I ask hon. Members there in all solemnity to think of the Ministers who are in charge of the particular Departments who have to deal with all these problems, and I ask them, as...

Orders of the Day — Business of the House (Unemployment Insurance Bill) (Allocation of Time). (1 Dec 1927)

Miss Margaret Bondfield: ...liable to be raised when the Bill emerges out of Committee; points that ought to be raised in order to try to make this Bill intelligible and workable when it becomes an Act. We have heard frequent references to the Blanesburgh Report, and the great criticism I have to offer in regard to this Bill is not with regard to its substance, but with regard to the time of its introduction. It has...

Orders of the Day — Unemployment Insurance Bill. (9 Nov 1927)

Mr Arthur Hayday: ...all is said and done, while you have introduced vicious schemes which you say will become permanent, at the same time you only give us a patchwork, for, indeed, it makes no less than 20 separate references to other Acts dealing with unemployment. That cannot, in any sense, be said to put before us something clear. My right hon. Friend said, when starting, that it was necessary to give some...

Orders of the Day — Labour Migration. (25 Mar 1926)

Major George Davies: To those of us who have had this question of Empire migration close at heart for years past, it is always a most welcome thing for a Debate to take place in the House of Commons in which references to party distinctions were all made subsidiary to the national problem and the national responsibility. It is unfortunate, as has been pointed out by previous speakers, that the questions of...

Orders of the Day — Geneva Protocol. (24 Mar 1925)

Mr Arthur Henderson: ...a scheme of disarmament. Thus in the Protocol we linked together machinery for peaceful settlement, pooled security and reduction of armaments. On this point I may observe that the Government in the references which have been made at Geneva to their limited plan are abso- lutely silent. Will the right hon. Gentleman, when he speaks, inform the House how his alternative policy will help...

Orders of the Day — Irish Free State (Confirmation of Agreement) Bill. (1 Oct 1924)

Mr John Clynes: ...and unsettled questions. We listened yesterday with our usual interest and admiration to the speech of the Noble Lord the Member for Oxford University (Lord H. Cecil). He entertained us with references to the existence or non-existence of degrees of common sense, and I think his conclusion was that had there been any degree of common sense there at all this matter would be settled by...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Ministry of Labour. (29 May 1924)

Mr Ramsay Macdonald: ...speech of the right hon. Gentleman then, that that would have been a sufficient reason for giving him an opportunity to deliver it this afternoon. The right hon Gentleman started with some imperfect references to Scripture in relation to my right hon. Friend below the Gangway (Mr. Asquith). He proceeded to a still more imperfect reference to recent by-elections, where his selection was...

Orders of the Day — Local Authorities (Emergency Provisions) Bill. (4 Mar 1924)

Mr John Wheatley: ...all those questions, there would be no necessity to keep the present Government in power until 1926 in order to clear up the mess of its predecessors. Notwithstanding, however, the flattering references which have been made to the capacity of the Minister of Health and the Government in general, I fear, even with the cordial co-operation and the utmost sympathy of this House, I could not...

Orders of the Day — Consolidated Fund (Appropriation) Bill. (31 Jul 1923)

Mr William Pringle: ...bear all the marks of a somewhat clumsy exercise in the art of selective autobiography. This gentleman when selecting matters which are matters of "public notoriety" selects the right things. The references to the right hon. Gentleman the Member for Carnarvon Boroughs are particularly illuminating. It is not the Postmaster-General's association with the right hon. Gentleman during the...

Orders of the Day — Supply. (20 Mar 1923)

Commander Hon. Joseph Kenworthy: ...but not quite so defensible one of pure, simple, and naked Imperialism. We were told that this was another vast area which was to be added to the British Empire. Of course, there were a few amiable references to the future purpose of training up the inhabitants to govern themselves, and other hypocritical statements of that kind. The form of government which we imposed after the capture of...

Orders of the Day — Unemployment. (8 Mar 1923)

Mr William Graham: One of the difficulties of the Debate is that we have to try to work in references to the conditions in Scotland under somewhat trying circumstances. I am glad to see in attendance, not only the Minister of Health— if I may respectfully say so—but also the Parliamentary Secretary to the Scottish Board of Health, either of whom may be able to reply to some of the criticisms which we intend...

Orders of the Day — Unemployment Insurance Bill. (5 Mar 1923)

Mr John Clynes: ...the problem itself by finding work, we might well have given the larger part of the time of this Session to dealing more amply with the problem than the present Bill proposes. We have in this Bill references which will be more or less—perhaps rather less than more—understood as to special periods, gaps, deficiency periods, covenanted and uncovenanted and other forms of benefit, and in...
