Orders of the Day — Old Age Pensions.: Clause6. — (Duty of Board with Respect to Salt or Lease of Land.) (19 Dec 1919)

Mr Robert Munro: ...shall, subject as hereinafter provided, offer the land to the person from whom it was purchased, or his successor in title, at a price to be determined, failing agreement, by the Scottish Land Court provided that in the opinion of the Board the land is suitable for afforestation the Board shall in the first instance consult the Forestry Commission, and shall give the Forestry Commissioners...

Orders of the Day — Old Age Pensions.: Claue 9. — :(Amendment of Section 7 of Act of 1911.). (19 Dec 1919)

Mr Robert Munro: ...any such landlord represents to the Secretary of Scotland that the Scheme ought not to be confirmed, the Secretary may, if he thinks lit, before giving his consent refer the scheme to the Land Court for inquiry and report. That may be regarded as a certain protection by those who are interested in the matter. If it be so regarded, then, speaking for the Government, I am quite willing that...

Orders of the Day — Old Age Pensions.: Regimental Debts (Deposit of Wills — Scotland) Bill. (19 Dec 1919)

Mr Robert Munro: ...with the working of the Regimental Debts Act of 1893. Under Section 21 of that Act a soldier's will, under special circumstances which I need not detail, has to be deposited in the Commissary Court at Edinburgh, and under that Act there are certain duties for the preservation and care which devolve upon that Court in connection with the document. It sometimes happens, however, that while...

Orders of the Day — King's Speech.: Coal Mines (Nationalisation). (11 Feb 1920)

Mr Robert McLaren: ...of employment, must first of all go to the Miners' Federation to get their sanction. They have a clause providing that if the Miners' Federation do not agree they have power to go before a court of arbitration. From that we see that the whole aim and object of the Bill of the Miners' Federation for the nationalisation of mines is to capture the whole of the coal trade, to get full control...

Oral Answers to Questions — Women Magistrates. (17 Feb 1920)

Sir Robert Clough: 43. asked the Home Secretary whether, in view of the number of women and children who come before the courts, he will consider the advisability of introducing legislation to provide for the appointment of at least one woman magistrate on every Bench in the United Kingdom?

Orders of the Day — War Emergency Laws (Continuance) Bill.: Clause 2. — (Continuance of certain Defence of the Realm Regulations.) (19 Feb 1920)

Mr T.P. O'Connor: turn. As a matter of fact, so strong is the instinct of this freedom-loving nation and of this Parliament, which after all represents centuries of freedom, that the great Government of Sir Robert Peel was turned out in 1846 by Mr. Disraeli and the Protectionists uniting with the Liberals and the Irish party, because Parliament refused to curtail the liberties of Ireland, and to put the...

Orders of the Day — Unemployment Insurance Bill. (25 Feb 1920)

Sir Robert Horne: ...when offered him by the Employment Exchanges. It was not left entirely to officials to determine whether the refusal of Unemployment Benefit was justified or not. He was enabled to appeal to a Court of Referees which was set up under the statute, and difficult questions on which parties disagreed were determined by an umpire as a final authority. That scheme of insurance covered 2,500,000...

Orders of the Day — Unemployment Insurance Bill. (25 Feb 1920)

Sir Robert Horne: The moulders and their brethren took their case to the Arbitration Court. An award was given that was accepted by their brethren, and the moulders were urged by their brethren to accept it. They took their own line for 20 weeks, and then went back to work on the award they could have had 20 weeks before. Everyone was eager at the beginning to put them into touch with the raw material of their...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Major Tryon's Statement. (11 Mar 1920)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Alan Burgoyne: ...shells and the use of tanks is of too recent a date for me to recall it in detail to the memory of the House. When an officer of high standing comes forward with ideas beyond the ordinary he courts condemnation as a crank and a visionary. What greater soldier had we than Lord Roberts? He, wanted National Service, yet he was scoffed at. Sir Percy Scott pointed out the danger of submarines;...

Orders of the Day — Civil Services and Revenue Departments and Navy Supplementary Estimates, 1919–1920.: Navy Supplementary Estimate, 1919–20. (17 Mar 1920)

Commander Hon. Joseph Kenworthy: ...results were in every case excellent, and the school was practically self-supporting. It had to be closed early in 1918, during the War, but the lessons learned as testified to by people like Sir Robert Baden-Powell, the Bishop of London, and many other men very much respected in the public life of this country who visited the school, showed that simply wonderful results had been obtained...

Orders of the Day — Navy Estimates, 1920–21.: MR. Long's Statement. (17 Mar 1920)

Mr Carlyon Bellairs: point which was not referred to, and to which I have referred very often in the past. I believe the Admiralty have decided that in the future we are to revert to the old practice of holding a court-martial whenever a ship is lost. My right hon. Friend will pardon me for referring to this matter, because it has been an old grievance of mine ever since the departure from the universal...

Oral Answers to Questions — Small Holdings, Island of Lewis. (24 Mar 1920)

Mr Robert Munro: ...granted in the eases referred to. The farms in question had not, in point of fact, been secured before the War for small holdings by the Board of Agriculture. The Board had laid before the Land Court a scheme under the Landholders' Act, but owing to the War proceedings were sisted. Applications have been made for holdings as stated by my hon. Friend, and are at present before the Board. As...

Divorce Laws. (14 Apr 1920)

Mr Robert Munro: ...should be what the law of Scotland is to-day. I claim to have some right to speak of the operation of this law in Scotland after some 23 years' professional experience in the practice of the Courts and a good deal of observation of the operation of the law in Scotland. What do we mean by desertion? Perhaps it will be easier for me to explain what desertion does not mean. It does not mean...

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

Mr Robert Young: in this fashion. It is rather unfortunate when the Government comes down to this House and introduces legislation of a character to bring employers and employed together by their Industrial Courts Bill and other Bills of that character, that private Members should act in this sort of fashion, and throw amongst us that which is likely to create suspicion and prejudice which we are all...

Orders of the Day — Supply. [7TH Allotted Day.]: Crime in Ireland. (26 Apr 1920)

Lord Robert Cecil: .... It is little wonder that in those districts not only the criminal law but the civil law also is in abeyanace. No civil process runs. There are, I believe, things which call themselves Sinn Fein Courts, but there are none of the King's Courts in active and effective operation in any of those districts. As happened the other day, during the strike about the prisoners in Mountjoy, the mob...

Orders of the Day — San Remo Conference.: Profiteering (Amendment) Bill. (29 Apr 1920)

Sir Robert Horne: ...have been conducting investigations. Four thousand complaints have been heard. In 934 cases it was held that the charges made were unreasonable, and in over 200 cases prosecutions were conducted in Courts of Summary Jurisdiction. It may be said that that represents a comparatively small result for the examination of complaints with regard to profiteering prices, but I beg the House not to...

Orders of the Day — Indemnity Bill. (3 May 1920)

Lord Robert Cecil: ...Government on this point? The whole matter is felt to be very complicated, and the House and the Government must both feel that there is a natural suspicion of any Bill which closes the door of the Courts of Justice to the subject. Everyone must view with great apprehension a Bill which shuts out from the subject the normal recourse to an independent tribunal in which everyone has...

Orders of the Day — Government of India Act.: Clause 4. — (Interpretation.) (5 May 1920)

Mr Robert Munro: .... Sub-section (2) of Section 7 of the House Letting Act of 1911 so provides. That, however, cannot be said to be the effect of Section 345 of the Act of 1892. It has been held— not in the Supreme Court, but in the Sheriff Court—that that Section confers an option upon the assessing authority to recover from either owner or occupier as they may think fit. That is the interpretation...

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Food. (6 May 1920)

Mr Frederick Banbury: ...milks a cow. I am not at all sure that some of them do not milk the taxpayer, and I think they have done that in a very efficient manner. The right hon. Gentleman, the Member for Norwich (Mr. G. Roberts), informed us that the Ministry comes to an end in August unless a Bill is brought in to prolong its existence. I had forgotten that, but I take it that it is correct. I am rather sorry...
