Supply. — [16TH Allotted Day.]: Postmaster-General's Statement. (17 Jul 1919)

Lieut-Colonel Martin Archer-Shee: ...to allude to the question of cabling to Australia, Canada, and New Zealand, three of the most important Dominions as regards wealth and numbers. Before the War we had a debate on the Past Office Vote on this subject, I think in 1912, and those of us who were urging the provision of greater cabling facilities strongly urged the laying of a State-owned cable across the Atlantic, and the...

Orders of the Day — Government of Scotland Bill. (16 Apr 1920)

Mr Joseph Johnstone: ...the granting of similar powers of self-government to Scotland as part of a general scheme of devolution. In May, 1913, the House passed the Second Reading of the Government of Scotland Bill by 204 votes to 159. I understand that the Bill which I am now moving, which has come down through a good many stages, was mainly originally drafted by the present Secretary for Scotland. Therefore, he...

Orders of the Day — Trade Union Ballot Bill. (23 Apr 1920)

Mr Robert Young: ..., but while I agree that that is so, it is not true to infer that I agree with the conclusions of that particular shop steward That particular shop steward was arguing against our method of branch voting, and arguing in favour of voting in the workshop. I am as much opposed to that kind of voting in the workshop as I am to the voting under this Bill I have been trying during the course of...

Orders of the Day — Supply. [7TH Allotted Day.]: Colonial Office. (26 Apr 1920)

Major-General Hon. Sir Newton Moore: ...that I am expressing their views in paying this small tribute to a very hard worked Minister who has a most important department to preside over. Before, however, referring to the items in this Vote I would like to take the opportunity of expressing on behalf of a large number of residents from overseas appreciation of' the action of the Government in their redemption of promises made by a...

Orders of the Day — League of Nations.: Statement by MR. Balfour. (17 Jun 1920)

Mr Arthur Balfour: I understand that the Vote to be discussed to-night, or in the earlier part of the night, relates to the League of Nations, and as I have been the delegate of this country to the League of Nations for more of its meetings than any of my colleagues it has been thought appropriate that that part of the Vote which relates to the League of Nations should be in my charge. I am confident that the...

Orders of the Day — Government of Ireland Bill.: Clause 17. — (Representation, of Ireland in the House of Commons of the United Kingdom.) (22 Jun 1920)

Mr John Hills: ...of the question that Irish Members should come here after the date of the Irish Union. Until the Irish Union takes place, there are all sorts of important services which are reserved, such as the postal service and the police service. After the date of Irish Union the Parliament of Ireland will have complete control of the Post Office, Savings Bank, postage stamps and the police, and the...

Orders of the Day — Unemployment.: Vote of Censure Proposed. (21 Oct 1920)

...by its very terms. It lays stress on the Unemployment Insurance Act which is to come into force in a few weeks. The very fact that that is paraded before us as a remedy is a reason why we should vote for the Resolution, because we realise that the Insurance Act in itself is a mere palliative which will not touch the fringe of the unemployment question, and the fact that the Insurance Act...

Oral Answers to Questions — League of Nations.: International Postal Union Congress. (11 Nov 1920)

Sir Percy Hurd: 31. asked the Prime Minister whether his attention has been called to the recommendation of the International Postal Union Congress at Madrid that in future Congresses only parent countries will have voting power, Colonies being excluded from voting, although they may send delegates: whether such a definition would deprive Canada and the other Dominions represented at such Congresses of the...

Oral Answers to Questions — International Postal Conference. (9 Dec 1920)

Sir Percy Hurd: 40. asked the Prime Minister whether he has now received information that at the International Postal Conference at Madrid a proposal was made that the British Empire should be allowed one vote only; whether he is aware that this proposal, which would have denied to Canada and the other British Dominions the voting power proper to their new national status, was defeated by 43 votes to 22; and...

Orders of the Day — National Expenditure.: Departments and Services (Liquidation). (9 Dec 1920)

...of Departments and of services which were created during and in consequence of the War? Thirteen Departments have already been altogether closed. Of 90 trading accounts arising out of the Vote of Credit, 56 have been already closed, and 14 are being closed as rapidly as they can. All subsidies will have stopped by the end of the year—the bread subsidy, the coal mines subsidy, the railway...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Mr. CHURCHILL'S STATEMENT. (1 Mar 1921)

...last page. The salaries in them range from £3,375 for the Chief of the Air Service down to £200 odd, which is given to temporary employés in the Air Historical Branch. The total numbers on the Vote are 30,880, and all these are on the establishment. I want to ask the House what on earth can all these people be doing? How many of them actually fly? I would also ask this question: Do we...

Civil Services and Revenue Departments Supplementary Estimates, 1920–21.: Public Works and Buildings, Ireland. (2 Mar 1921)

Mr Stanley Baldwin: ...Works in Ireland. In introducing this Estimate, my right hon. Friend beside me (Mr. Henry) would have carried much heavier guns than I can. It will be noticed that by far the greater amount in this Vote is directly concerned with the work of the Irish Constabulary. Under Item A, there is a sum of £23,500 for securing buildings in Belfast, which, although ultimately they will be required...

Civil Services and Revenue Depart- Ments Supplementary Estimates, 1920–21.: Land Registry. (4 Mar 1921)

Mr Godfrey Locker-Lampson: ...Estimate really include the whole of expenses of this Department? The right hon. Gentleman knows very well that one of the recommendations of the Committee on National Expenditure was that each Vote should show the total expenses of the Department. It very often happens that outside the actual sum asked for for a Department under a particular Vote other moneys are required for a Department...

Orders of the Day — Civil Services Estimates, 1921–22.: Revenue Buildings. (21 Apr 1921)

Dr. MURRAY: This Vote throws light on some things that were dark to me before. I have often protested against the mean economies of the Post Office with regard to the mail service in some parts of the country, and now I find that the money, which ought to be spent in providing a decent mail service for some of the outlying parts of the country, is being wasted on bricks and mortar,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Postal Rates (Increase). (24 May 1921)

Mr Frederick Kellaway: In order to meet the anticipated deficit on the Post Office services for the current year, the Government propose to increase certain of the postal rates as from Monday, 13th June next. The principal changes will be an increase in the rate for postcards, inland and foreign, from 1d. to 1½d.; in the rate for inland printed papers not exceeding 1 oz. in weight from ½d. to 1d.; and in the...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Post Office. (9 Jun 1921)

Mr Frederick Kellaway: ...think, already been published in the Press. If, however, any hon. Member desires to have these names, I will see that they are placed at the disposal of the Committee before the proceedings on this Vote are concluded. We shall do everything that can be done, subject to maintaining the great bulk of the saving of this £1,000,000, to minimise the inconvenience of the thing. That, then,...

Orders of the Day — Private Business.: Revenue Depaetment's Estimates, 1921–22. Post Office. (9 Jun 1921)

Mr George Spencer: I quite agree with the proposition which has been placed before the Committee by the Minister in charge of this Vote to-night, namely, that, so far as it lies in his power, his Department should be made a paying Department, and if there is a loss, or likely to be a loss so far as the Department is concerned, I think it is the duty of the Minister to give very serious attention to any...

Oral Answers to Questions — Unemployment.: Employment Exchanges. (9 Nov 1921)

These figures do not include any proportion of headquarter charges or of charges borne on the Votes of other Government Departments in respect of rent and maintenance of premises, printing and stationery, postal services, etc., nor has any deduction been made in respect of appropriations from the unemployment fund under the Unemployment Insurance Act in aid of expenditure.

Orders of the Day — King's Speech.: Agriculture. (10 Feb 1922)

Sir Francis Acland: ...has been already advertised for next month as usual makes it impossible to do more in 1922–23 than to reduce the charge somewhat further, but we think the scheme should then be dropped from this Vote. The Committee recognise that you cannot scrap this £30,000 on light horse breeding all at once. That is my suggestion on a cursory reading of that part of this Committee's report. I shall...

Orders of the Day — REPRESENTATION OF THE PEOPLE (No. 2) BILL. (30 Mar 1922)

Mr Edward Shortt: ...-date the qualifying period by one month or post-date the publication of the register by one month. It was found that the municipal elections which take place on 1st November must of necessity be voted upon on the 15th October register. Therefore it was not possible, if you were, going to have the municipal elections upon the now register, to post-date the date for publishing the register....
