Oral Answers to Questions — Letters and Cheques (Increased Charge). (13 Feb 1919)

Sir Donald Macmaster: 78. asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what advantage has accrued to the public revenue from the increase in postage on letters and cards, and what advantage from the in crease of a penny on cheques; and when such increase may be discontinued?

Oral Answers to Questions — Postal Charges. (13 Feb 1919)

Sir Donald Macmaster: 79. asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if, in consequence of the reduction of national expenditure, he has taken any steps with a view to restoring penny postage on letters and a halfpenny postcard; and, if not, will he take such stops at the earliest possible date?

Housing.: Notices to Quit. (17 Feb 1919)

Mr Arthur Hayday: ...the number of visitations for the purposes of sanitary inspections which have taken place and as to the state of the existing property. I can assure, the House that very few of the landlords have spent a penny-piece during the whole of the War period on property which, as my friends in London would say, has to have seven or eight layers of wallpaper to keep the partition in an upright...

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

Sir John Harmood-Banner: that? Will the State come forward and risk £500,000, which has been risked in the past by the coal-owner with no certainty of a profitable result, or it might be nine years before you got a penny on your money? I myself have done it in some of my colliery ventures. You put down your bore-hole, then you sink your shaft, then you find water in the shaft, and it is years before you...

Orders of the Day — Coal Industry Commission Bill.: Clause 1. — (Appointment of Commissioners.) (25 Feb 1919)

Brigadier-General Thomas Hickman: ...them for himself. This is very important, because when hon. Gentlemen say that coal-owners are getting advantage out of the rise in the price of coal, that is a fallacy. No coal-owner can get a penny out of this rise of 4s. of last year. If there is any margin between the extra cost of the wages and the extra cost of the coal, it goesstraight to the Coal Controller. I know it does in my...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Board of Education. (27 Feb 1919)

Mr Herbert Fisher: ...many of them would not have reached their present stage of education without the assistance of scholarships and exhibitions granted by local education authorities and by governors of endowed foundations. Not a penny of the money is expended on ex-officers or other persons of like standing who do not require financial aid, and most careful inquiry is made into the circumstances of all...

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

Captain Charles Loseby: I say that it is nothing less than puerile to imagine that this Government, with the colossal task they have before them, short of money, embarrassed by their position, are looking to spend one penny more on an Army than is absolutely necessary for immediate needs. I hope my manner has not been provocative to hon. Gentlemen opposite—probably I allowed myself to be carried away—but...

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

Mr Donald Maclean: ...has taken place it is still about 225 per cent. higher than the pre-war price. The storage and distribution of that meat is costing the Government about 2d. per pound, while before the War the cost was three-eighths of a penny to the private trader. What we want to know is what stocks do the Government hold, when are they going to get rid of them, and when are the people of this country...

Orders of the Day — Supply. — [2ND Allotted Day.]: War Indemnities. (5 Mar 1919)

Mr Bonar Law: ...figures mentioned are absolutely unobtainable. But that is very far indeed from saying that he or any one of us does not hold as strongly as any Member of this House that we are entitled to get from Germany every penny up to the full cost of the War providing Germany is able to pay. During the whole of the Election I made speeches, like other people, and I never had the slightest doubt as...

Oral Answers to Questions — Ireland.: Loans to Tenant Purchasers. (6 Mar 1919)

...; whether an equivalent Grant has been or will be made to Ireland; whether in Ireland, as has already been decided in England, the Government will pay all expenditure in excess of the proceeds of a penny rate; and, if not, why this course is not to be followed?

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

Mr George Spencer: ...policy must, of necessity, be dictated by the circumstances of the case. If that is true to-day, it must inevitably be true when 30th April, 1920, comes, and if you are going to extract the last penny, as some hon. Members have declared is their intention, from Germany, even to the extent of thirty-five years, you may have an Army of Occupation extending over a period of thirty-five years,...

Orders of the Day — Increase of Rent Bill (7 Mar 1919)

Mr Philip Lloyd-Greame: ...much as any man, entitled to the reasonable consideration which the Government are proposing to give to other classes of the community. I venture to make this appeal with the more confidence because I am not asking the Treasury for a penny. I realise that if this was asking for a Grant from the Treasury the thing would be difficult. I notice that on Tuesday the Leader of the House, when he...

Oral Answers to Questions — Overseas Troops. (10 Mar 1919)

...the labour companies attached to divisions in the occupied territories; if he is aware that not one man in the 231st Division Employ Company, attached to the 34th Division in Germany has received a penny of the war bonus for occupation; if he is aware that the unit is composed of men of low category through wounds and other disabilities; whether there is any possibility of such men being...

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

Colonel Josiah Wedgwood: ...spent on public works in this country, that does not create more employment in this country? If the money is spent in a useful way, it just creates exactly as much employment as it also destroys. Every penny found for that public work comes out of some of our pockets and it means that people who want to get useful things which are needed by their families are unable to purchase those...

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

Mr Walter Long: the point which has been reached—and the Board of Admiralty is constantly going into all these facts. Only yesterday we were discussing further reductions, our object being to avoid spending a penny which can be legitimately saved, with due regard first of all to the safety of the country and secondly to the condition of the existing expenditure. As regards dockyards, there again...

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

Lieutenant Alfred Raper: ...duty to put the Air Force on a proper business basis and take care that it is treated in a way that its future position as a fighting force demands. It would be a grave mistake to stint a single penny that can be usefully employed in enabling this country to continue to hold its position in leading the world in aviation, both military and civil, but it is equally essential that we should...

Orders of the Day — Increase of Rent Bill.: New Clause. — (Application of Act to Scotland.) (14 Mar 1919)

Mr Robert Munro: ...increase the standard rent by an amount equal to any increase inthe rates. This works quite well in England, where, generally speaking, the rates are chargeable against the occupier, and each extra penny which is put upon the rates almost automatically is added to the rent. The English owner therefore continues to receive practically the same net rent which he received before the War. In...

Orders of the Day — Increase of Rent Bill.: Clause. — (Application of Act to Scotland.) (14 Mar 1919)

Mr Robert Munro: ...rates are paid by the occupier with very few exceptions. The net result is that the English landlord can, by virtue of the existing law and under the Act now being amended, add to his rent every penny which is added to the rates, and can secure his net rental just as it existed before the War. That was the intention of the Act of 1915, namely, that the English house proprietor should...

Orders of the Day — Civil Contingencies Fund Bill.: Clause 1. — (Power to Issue Sums from the Consolidated Fund to the Civil Contingencies Fund.) (14 Mar 1919)

Mr Stanley Baldwin: ...the purposes defined in the first part of the Clause will be very small. The large amount is in the second part. It is quite possible that with regard to the subjects discussed this afternoon not one penny will be required, but there is a possibility that at some time deliveries may overlap receipts and money may be required, and I dare not run the risk of leaving out of the Bill these...

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

Mr Marshall Stevens: ...comes with that a railway company which already is conveying more than 1 per cent. of the whole general merchandise of the country. All that work has been accomplished without obtaining one single penny from the Government by private enterprise, and when I hear the right hon. Gentleman referring to private enterprise as colossal waste, let me give him that short example. Those undertakings...
