Private Business.: Clause 41. — (Power of Trustees to invest in mortgages of the Board.) (16 Nov 1920)

Mr Austen Chamberlain: ...necessary for the Treasury to offer any opposition to the Bill. The case for the promoters was stated with great lucidity and great fairness by my right hon. Friend the Member for Sheffield (Sir S. Roberts), who moved to disagree with the Lords Amendment. He ended with an appeal, which has been repeated since, that I should leave this question to the free decision of the House, and that I...

Oral Answers to Questions — Egypt.: Anti-Dumping Bill. (18 Nov 1920)

Sir Robert Horne: ...I think, under a misapprehension. Prohibitions of importations were imposed during the War, not under the Defence of the Realm Act, but under Section 43 of the Customs Consolidation Act, 1876. The Courts have since decided that this Section cannot be utilised for the purpose in question.

Orders of the Day — Agriculture Bill.: Clause 7. — (Compensation for Dis- turbance.) (18 Nov 1920)

Mr Robert Munro: Speaking from recollection of the decision to which my hon. Friend refers, I think it turned on the circumstances of the particular case in the Court of Session, and did not establish any general principle.

Orders of the Day — Agriculture Bill.: Clause 9. — (Amendment of law as to improvements.) (22 Nov 1920)

Mr Robert Munro: ...quite simple. So far as the Scottish Clause is concerned, if it remains in its present form, in Scotland the case contemplated by this Sub-section would go to the agricultural committee or the Land Court. In England it goes to the agricultural committee or to the arbitrator. The alternative in Scotland will be between the agricultural committee and the Land Court, and not between the...

Orders of the Day — Agriculture Bill.: Clause 26. — (Application to Scotland.) (23 Nov 1920)

Mr Robert Munro: I desire, at the outset, to acknowledge the moderation of the speech of my hon. Friend and the handsome tribute which he has paid to the existing Land Court. The subject was discussed in other days in a very different manner. I hope that I may be trusted not to import the smallest heat into the Debate to-day. There are two preliminary observations which I wish to make. One must bear in mind...

Orders of the Day — Agriculture Bill (25 Nov 1920)

Sir Robert Thomas: ...and with control. We do not want either one or the other. We want reforms, it is perfectly true, in agriculture. The Prime Minister, before he accepted office, in the year 1896, introduced a Land Court Bill for Wales. He was one of the strongest advocates of the Land Court. I brought in an Amendment to that effect in Committee on this Bill, and also in the House, and that Amendment was...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland.: Land Cultivation Order (Glenorchy). (30 Nov 1920)

Mr Robert Munro: ...May, 1920. Formal withdrawal of the order was in the Board's view not necessary, as the proprietor took action to eject Mr. Cameron after that date, and obtained a decree of ejection in the Sheriff Court. The total expenses so far incurred by the Board amount to £262, no part of which sum has been incurred since Whit Sunday last. The Marquis of Bredalbane made a qualified offer in the...

Orders of the Day — Charity Commission Schemes.: Hulme Trust Estates (Non-Educational). (30 Nov 1920)

Mr Robert Sanders: ...they have to be submitted to the House of Commons. I believe it to be strict constitutional doctrine that the responsibility rests entirely with the Charity Commissioners, and ultimately with the Court of Chancery.

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Civil Services and Revenue Departments Supplementary Estimate, 1920–21. (3 Dec 1920)

Mr George Roberts: ..., that the costs recovered do not balance the charges is not a matter that can abide with the Food Controller, but is a question for those who try the cases. My right hon. Friend could not go to Court and say, "You have got to charge them more because I have got a deficiency here of some £9,000 to make good." 2.0 P.M. The only further item to which I want to make allusion is one for which...

Oral Answers to Questions — Ireland.: "irish Theological Quarterly." (17 Feb 1921)

Sir Robert Lynn: ...secular newspapers have been prosecuted and punished for much less serious offences; and whether it is now the policy of Dublin Castle that Roman Catholic theologians are not subject to the civil courts?


Lord Robert Cecil: ...that as a fruit of the Government of the British Empire in one of its Dependencies? It may be that some of the overt acts committed by Sinn Fein have become less marked. They no longer hold their courts. You have defeated the railway strike. But these are comparatively small matters. It is murder that matters. It is the loss of life that matters.

Orders of the Day — Report. [28TH February.]: Irish Administration. (1 Mar 1921)

Mr William Redmond: ...The Company was now fallen in as I had ordered. I went over to them and spoke to them all. I stated that it was conclusively proved that disgraceful larceny had taken place by those who were in the Robertstown raid. I stated that they must remember it was a police constable's duty not only to detect, but to prevent crime and to report it, and although the idea of all hanging together was...

Army and Air Force (Annual) Bill. (11 Apr 1921)

Mr Robert Sanders: This Amendment seems to be a hardy annual. It has been brought forward many times before on this Bill. I presume that the appeal refers not to the case of the officer who is tried by court martial, but to the case of the officer on whom an adverse report has been sent in by his Commanding Officer. Under the Army Act, an officer in that position has the right of appeal to the Army Council and...

Orders of the Day — Treaty of Peace (Hungary) Bill (20 Apr 1921)

Lord Robert Cecil: ...the Council of the League any defect in the execution of these clauses. More than that, they can require that the matter shall be submitted, if there is any doubt about the fact, to the permanent Court of International Justice. I attach enormous importance to that, just for the purpose of focussing public opinion. If you could have an open trial before a great Court of that kind, in a case...

Oral Answers to Questions — League of Nations.: Court of International Justice. (21 Apr 1921)

Lord Robert Cecil: 40. asked the Prime Minister how soon the Convention for the establishment of a permanent Court of International Justice will be ratified by this country?

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland.: Departmental Reports. (24 May 1921)

Mr Robert Munro: The Report of the Scottish Education Department has already been presented, and those of the Prison Commissioners, the Board of Agriculture for Scotland, the Astronomer-Royal, the Scottish Land Court, the Board of Trustees, and the General Board of Control are expected to be ready, very shortly. Other outstanding Reports (with the exception of the Registrar-General's Report) will, it is...

Ireland (General Crozier's Allegations). (24 May 1921)

Lord Robert Cecil: ..., but may I submit that it is of the utmost possible importance that charges of this very great gravity, if there is anything in them, should be investigated somehow or another, either by the High Court of Parliament or in some other way, without unnecessary delay.

Oral Answers to Questions — Ireland.: Military Courts of Inquiry. (25 May 1921)

Mr Robert Sanders: By Section 70 (1) (a) of the Army Act, His Majesty may, by rules to be signified under the hand of a Secretary of State, make provisions in respect of the "assembly and procedure of Courts of Inquiry." The provisions made for this purpose and at present in force are Rules of Procedure 124 and 125. These do not provide for the appearance of counsel. Counsel have accordingly no right of...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill (25 May 1921)

Sir Robert Horne: ...the subject of fresh litigation on the terms of the new Act, and I think, if my information is correct, the view which he has expressed in the House this afternoon has been adopted by one of the Courts, but that decision is now the subject of appeal. These were the matters my hon. Friend raised, and I should now like to turn for a moment to the point which was started by the right hon....
