Debate on the Address. (11 Feb 1919) one would be so foolish as to complain of President Wilson holding those views. After all, his first concern as a good American is to secure American interests at this Conference. That is his job, and when he has done that, of course he can consider International questions. Also we have to remember that that is for better or worse. I think Mr. Asquith, if he were in the House, would not...

Orders of the Day — King's Speech.: Industrial Unrest. (13 Feb 1919)

Major Harry Barnes: ...of this country, but I think the Government must be given credit for what they have done in that direction. As a new Member of the House, it appears to me the Government have got a pretty tough job in front of them. Whatever they do is sure to be wrong. On the one hand they are asked by commercial men to relieve industry, trade and commerce of control. When they do that, then they are net...

King's Speech.: Naval and Military Pensions and Grants. (14 Feb 1919)

Major Jack Cohen: such men. What is going to be done? It is not a question so much of teaching a man a trade, though that is a very important question. What I think is still more important is to find that man a job when he has learned his trade. It is no use teaching thousands of men to cobble, thousands of men tailoring, and thousands of men diamond cutting, if, when they have learnt these trades,...

King's Speech.: Agriculture. (14 Feb 1919)

Lieut-General Edward Fitzroy: ...must tackle this question without a moment's delay. I do hope the hon. Gentleman who now represents agriculture—and I am sure we are ready to give him every assistance we can in the arduous job he has got before him—will get into touch with the Noble Lord who at present presides over the Board of Agriculture, and that they will put their heads together, with the best advice they can...

Oral Answers to Questions — Demobilisation.: Labour Battalions. (18 Feb 1919)

Sir Arthur Fell: are kept in existence; if the gardeners and others forming them have their places waiting for them; if their wives and families receive separation allowances whilst their absent husbands do jobbing work in the neighbourhood of the camps; and if he will say why the men are kept with the Colours under these conditions?

Orders of the Day — Clause 2. — Right of Certain Ministers to Sit in the House of Commons.) (21 Feb 1919)

Colonel Sir James Greig: ...take upon himself—the responsibility of choosing Ministers. Consequently, he should have the widest choice possible, and it should be in his power to choose the man he thinks best fitted for the job with- out any reference to whether he had a small majority at the previous election. That is what does guide and must influence the choice of Ministers in this House. If you want to test the...

Orders of the Day — Coal Industry Commission.: Coal Industry Commission Bill, (24 Feb 1919)

Mr John Cairns: not a Bolshevist. I did some recruiting during the War. I am a constitutionalist. I do not want a strike. But I do want these things remedied. There are some men who can work a full day on their jobs on which it is only possible to work four hours at a time. The man at the crossings on duty four hours at a time cannot stand it much longer. The man at work on the coal face cannot stand...

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

Dr Christopher Addison: ...getting on towards it. We have a very large number of different Departments dealing with it, and I believe that there are about 1,800 local authorities. The first thing, if you are going to get a job well done, is to make it somebody's duty to see that it is done, and not leave it to the ill-defined and the combined responsibility of half-a-dozen different sets of people. That is the...

Orders of the Day — Supply. — [First Allotted Day.]: Number of Land Forces. (3 Mar 1919)

Mr Winston Churchill: ...of pay. To sum up, in a sentence which I have used several times, but which cannot be too often repeated, our plan is to let three men out of four go, and to pay the fourth man double to finish the job. I do not in the least underrate the objections which may be urged against this plan, nor do I deny the hardships which it must necessarily entail, but I am sure that they are less serious...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Civil Services Supplementary Estimates, 1918–19. (4 Mar 1919)

Mr Austin Hopkinson: a great deal depends on the amount of the disablement. It is extremely difficult to put a man into the engineering trade who has lost an arm. At the same time there are a certain number of jobs in any works—store-keeping and the like—which these men can do just as well as a man in the possession of all his limbs and faculties. All jobs of this sort in my works are reserved for the...

Orders of the Day — Civil Contingencies Fund Bill. (4 Mar 1919)

Mr Donald Maclean: ...demobilised, and there is a large amount of unemployment in the country. You have got the manufacturers and traders all round crying for men, and you have got men hanging about who cannot get a job. There the fact is, and it is nearly four months since hostilities ceased, and still, turn where you like through the whole range of our business activities in this land, from the huge trading...

Orders of the Day — Supply. — [2ND Allotted Day.]: Munitions — National Factories. (5 Mar 1919)

Mr Frank Rose: ...I merely suggest it, because it occurs to me, and probably will to any rational man, as something entirely superfluous; it could never have been set up for any other purpose except to find somebody jobs. There is the Department of Agricultural Machinery. What on earth the Ministry of Munitions has to do with agricultural machinery I do not know! They are not going to make any. It does not...

Orders of the Day — Naval, Military and Air Force Service Bill. (6 Mar 1919)

Mr Stanley Holmes: ...sufficient, would be quite willing for their husbands to remain in the Army. There are any number of them who in pre-war days were not particularly attached to any trade, who have no particular job to go back to, who have enjoyed a freer life in the Army, and who now that the danger and horrors of it have disappeared would be perfectly willing to stop there. Therefore, I venture to put...

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Health [Salaries and Expenses]. (6 Mar 1919)

Mr Godfrey Locker-Lampson: ..., but I think that it would be very inadvisable to pay them anything outside of these rather narrow boundaries. If you do, you will create a suspicion in the public mind that a great many paid jobs are being created. When the Insurance Act was being passed hundreds, I may say thousands, of approved society leaders gave advice gratis to the Minister in charge of that particular Department....

Orders of the Day — Supply. — [5TH March].: Vote on Account. (10 Mar 1919)

Mr James Sexton: ...abrogating the Employers' Liability Act, the difference being full wages in one case and half wages in the other. The reason is easily explained. The man who is injured very probably has a good job, and he reports to the employer. The employer sends him to the insurance company, and the insurance company settles with him under the Workmen's Compensation Act, although in dozens of cases...

Orders of the Day — Increase of Rent Bill.: Clause 1. — (Prolongation of Duration of Principal Act) (11 Mar 1919)

Mr Thompson Donald: go to the agent, say, to get a house papered, he will tell you that they are prepared to meet you, but will give you pre-war rates, so that in the end it appears that you might as well do the job yourself. In Belfast and the vicinity there is a great outcry about the scarcity of houses. In the vicinity of watering places there are a great many people who occupy houses in a watering...

Orders of the Day — Increase of Rent Bill.: Clause 4. — (Extension of Principal Act to Higher-rented Houses.) (11 Mar 1919)

Mr John Clynes: is to meet the charges which they are required to pay when any likely place does meet their eye. I think we shall not be completing this task and that the Government will not be making a good job on what is really a very good opportunity unless they do meet the views which have been urged by my hon. Friends who have pressed this Amendment, and accordingly those for whom I can speak on...

Supply. — [4TH Allotted Day.]: MR. Long's Statement. (12 Mar 1919)

...officers, I will not say with regard to a grievance, because I do not like the word grievance, but with any complaints they may have. The men in the Navy realise fully that the officers know their job and do not ask any man or tell any man to do anything that they themselves cannot do, or would not do, if it were their business to do it. The men of the Navy know that the officers will lead...

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

Captain William Benn: .... One way in which you will get it will be by differentiating between functions. When there is a big machine there will be one man entirely for wireless, for instance, and one man for another job, but the point is that you want a man whose prime interest is in the mechanical part, and until you give the observer a definite place in the Air Service you are throwing away a good deal of...

Orders of the Day — Miss Douglas Pennant. (13 Mar 1919)

Major-General John Seely: ...I regard Miss Douglas Pennant and the services she has rendered to the State, and I know Lord Weir would say the same if he were standing in my place. In the most difficult, and very peculiar job of administering this Women's Royal Air Force we came to the conclusion that she was not the best fitted for it, in the same way as the Secretary of State for War or the Home Secretary or the...
