Orders of the Day — Land Settlement (Scotland) Bill. (15 Aug 1919)

Captain John Jameson: We give a warm welcome to the principle of this Bill, and on the whole we quite agree that the proper course is to take the Second Reading now, and leave it to the Recess in order that we may meanwhile get into touch with our constituencies and gather the general Amendments that no doubt will be required to this measure. As representing a burgh constituency, the part of this Bill in which I...

Orders of the Day — Land Settlement (Scotland) Bill. (15 Aug 1919)

...and amiable way in which the- Secretary for Scotland accepts the somewhat humble role of sitting at the table of the Whips and picking up the crumbs is probably a very nice picture, but it is not very good for Scotland that he should be quite so humble. I could not help wondering the other night why we could not have had an important Bill of this character instead of that sordid, squalid...

Orders of the Day — Profiteering Bill: Clause 1. — (Powers of the Board of Trade to Investigate Complaints and Take Proceedings.) (14 Aug 1919)

Sir John Butcher: I can only say it is rather an unfortunate position to put a director in. He is responsible to the shareholders for the proper conduct of the company, and he should have sufficient confidence in the company to hold shares in it. As a matter of fact he usually does, and I venture to say I was perfectly correct in saying that if a company makes a large profit the directors share those profits...

Orders of the Day — Acquisition of Land (Assessment of Compensation) Bill.: Clause 5. — (Provisions as to Costs.) (14 Aug 1919)

Mr Donald Maclean: I observe there is nobody on the Treasury Bench who knows anything whatever about this Bill. I have had no opportunity at all of referring to my right hon. Friend opposite in regard to this matter, but I am quite confident that the House has agreed to certain Amendments which it would not have done had they known what the proposition was. I should like to move the Adjournment of the Debate on...

Orders of the Day — Profiteering Bill.: Clause 1. — (Powers of the Board of Trade to Investigate Complaints and Take Proceedings). (13 Aug 1919)

Mr George Thorne: ...I have in view in moving this Amendment. As I said on the Second Heading, I want to assist in securing the objects which the right hon. Gentleman has in view, but I submitted then, and I submit now, that this Bill will be ineffective for that purpose—that in reality it is a sham, and that I want to take some part, as for as is possible, in helping to make it a reality. I am not wedded in...

Orders of the Day — Profiteering Bill.: Clause 2. — (Power to Establish Local Committees, etc.) (13 Aug 1919)

Mr Thomas Griffiths: You are quite aware that in many districts you have no Labour representation on county councils, town councils, and other bodies. In these districts you have trades councils and the Labour party, and the people would have more confidence if these local tribunals were appointed from them than if they were appointed from someone outside.

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Transport Bill.: Clause 21. — (Advisory Committees.) (13 Aug 1919)

Lord Robert Cecil: Publicity is always in the public interest, or almost always, and this Amendment says there is only one reason why you ought not to prosecute public affairs in public, and that is when in doing so you would inflict an injury on the private interests which have been confided to you, forcibly, by the operations of the Statute. That is the sole exception, and it is a right exception. But beyond...

Orders of the Day — Royal Air Force. (12 Aug 1919)

Major-General John Seely: The Belvedere Road garage and the Kennington garage are both in the London Transport Area, which is known as the Kennington Area. That is how it is universally known. I dare say it is wrong, but I am afraid we are not sufficiently ecclesiastical to know the parish boundaries. That, however, is really the only point, and it is not a point of substance. I am sure that everybody In the House...

Orders of the Day — Profiteering Bill. (11 Aug 1919)

Sir Charles Edwards: ...I disagree as much with the Mover and Seconder of the Amendment as I do with the Bill itself. The Mover of the Amendment seemed to think that everything was all right and that the Government and no one need take any notice of profiteering, because there was none existing. The Seconder said that the only thing to be done was to remove the control at present existing, restore freedom of...

Orders of the Day — Welsh Church (Temporalities) Bill.: Clause 4. — (Further Provisions as to Welsh Ecclesiastical Property.) (11 Aug 1919)

Mr Bonar Law: I only rise in response to the appeal of the hon. Member for Chelsea (Sir S. Hoare). I must ask the Committee not to regard this Amendment by itself, because you have to look at the whole proposal of the Bill. That is. the justification for it from my point of view. If it were true that this Bill does nothing whatever to improve the position of the Church in Wales I am quite certain not only...

Orders of the Day — Patents and Designs Bill.: New Clause. — (Amendment of s. 38 (1) of the Patents and Designs Act, 1907.) (8 Aug 1919)

Sir Ernest Pollock: I am obliged to the hon. Member, but I am not unmindful of that. The Amendment as proposed in tends to prevent conditions being attached to the purchase, the lease or the licence of any article or class of articles which may be dealt with by sale, by lease, or by licence. That is the proposition. Can I accept it? May I point out how I think that would work unfairly? There are certain patented...

Orders of the Day — War Pensions (Administrative Provisions) Bill.: SCHEDULE (Constitution, Jurisdiction, and Procedure of Pension Appeal Tribunals). (8 Aug 1919)

Mr James Hogge: ...may, if he can prove the facts of his pre-war earnings along with the assessment of his pre- sent earning capacity, receive an alternative pension. This Clause gives the Ministry of Pensions powers not only to ascertain, the pre-war earnings of the disabled person from the employer, but seeks a new power of ascertaining the earning capacity of any such person. On that point there is a...

Orders of the Day — CONSOLIDATED FUND (No. 2) BILL. (7 Aug 1919)

Colonel LAMBERT WARD: I think it would be well before this House goes into Recess to obtain from the Government some definite line upon which they intend to effect those economies without which in a very short time this country will be plunged into bankruptcy. I do not think it would be sufficient to obtain from them a mere general assurance that it is hoped to effect those economics in some...

Oral Answers to Questions — Demobilisation.: 226th DIVISION EMPLOYMENT CAMP (PRIVATE CLARK). (6 Aug 1919)

Mr Winston Churchill: There is no trace of any application having been received by the War Office on behalf of Private Clark. The application referred to by my hon. Friend was apparently made to the man's commanding officer, who is in possession of all instructions regarding demobilisation, and I am confident that this 6oldier's release would not have been refused had his case fallen within any of the categories...

Oral Answers to Questions — Liverpool Police Strike.: Home Secretary's Statement. (6 Aug 1919)

Mr Edward Shortt: No material change in the position in Liverpool has taken place, and no more police have joined the strikers. One or two attempts at looting were made last night, but were immediately suppressed. There are threats of other strikes which would affect the essential needs of the community. I am well aware that certain persons are attempting to bring about a complete stoppage of work, without any...

Orders of the Day — Welsh Church (Temporalities) Bill. (6 Aug 1919)

Mr Bonar Law: As regards the general principles and the objects with which this Bill is brought forward, I cannot do better than associate myself absolutely with the spirit of the hon. Gentleman who has just spoken. I have noticed that in military matters the very worst position is that a force should be subjected to two fires. In this question I do not think that the same thing is true. I think it...

Orders of the Day — FORESTRY BILL [Lords]. (5 Aug 1919)

Mr Frederick Thomson: To take up the point of view that Scotland had not refused this Bill. In view of the fact that she is a large timber-bearing area, the suggestion was that she should be taken into account as a sort of special entity. We must look at this question in a practical way. The Treasury being what it is, if there were only the Board of Agriculture alone in charge of the forestry, we should only get...

Orders of the Day — Ministries and Secretaries Bill. (5 Aug 1919)

Mr Henry Croft: I am very glad to hear what the right hon. Gentle- man has said, because that immediately ranges me on his side. I misunderstood him. I thought he did not apply this argument to the Secretary for Scotland owing to some past promise that had been made. How ever, I am glad he agrees that we ought not at this time to allow any increase to take place. I know that the Leader of the House naturally...

Orders of the Day — Police Bill: Clause 1. — (Constitution of Police Federation.) (1 Aug 1919)

Colonel Sir James Greig: ...take up arms in defence of their country; and from the way they discharged their duties as civil officers I was satisfied that they would do their duty in the War, and they did. If I say anything now it is not out of sympathy with the police. What is their position. They are not in the position either of the ordinary citizen or of the ordinary Civil servant. Until we get home that root...

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Pensions.: Statement by Sir Laming Worthington- Evans. (31 Jul 1919)

Mr Anderson Barlow: I hope the House will pardon me if I say a word or two in connection with a subject in which I am personally interested, namely, the Report of the Select Committee of which I had the honour to be chairman. May I say at once that as chairman I claim no special credit or privilege in connection with that Report. If ever a Report was the Report of a Committee as a whole, that Report was....
