Orders of the Day — Separation and Maintenance Orders Bill. (26 May 1922)

Sir Robert Newman: ...with the very poorest women of this community. I do not think it will affect the richer class in any degree whatever, because I believe they can get anything in this Bill without going to the Law Courts at all. The greater number of these separations they can effect by means of their family solicitors and in other ways than in court, but it is not so with the very poor classes, who have...

Orders of the Day — Civil Services and Revenue Departments Estimates, 1922–23.: Class Ii. (13 Jun 1922)

Lord Robert Cecil: meant a record of a great part of all the conversations that had taken place between the Foreign Minister and the Ambassador, despatches by the Foreign Minister to his representative at the Court in question, and the consequential despatches from the Ambassador giving the purport of what had occurred in the discussions. Now we get very, very little. I think that one of the reasons is...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: Clause 14. — (Super-tax on undistributed income of certain companies.) (20 Jun 1922)

Sir Robert Horne: ...words which would show that all we desire to do is to get at these people who form their companies for evading their liability of assessment to Super-tax. Speaking with some experience of the Law Courts, I cannot imagine any phrase with more difficulty. One of the oldest maxims in the law is that you cannot try a man's mind. You cannot get inside a man's mind to say what his motive is....

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: Clause 26. — (Amendment of s. 38 (3) of 5 d 6 Geo. 5, c. 89.) (21 Jun 1922)

Sir Robert Horne: ...suffered loss in the same business, but, as he explained, those benefits were conferred purely upon persons. Whether that is right or wrong, that is the enactment, and it has to be construed by the Courts. We have endeavoured by the Clause I have put forward to meet the harshness of certain cases. The case of a son succeeding a father in business and finding himself confronted with great...

Orders of the Day — Ireland.: Irish Office, etc. (26 Jun 1922)

Mr Bonar Law: ...ceremony in St. Paul's Cathedral, without saying a word about the late Sir Henry Wilson. He was of all our soldiers my most intimate friend. I met him for the first time many years ago at Lord Roberts's house. I was greatly attracted by him, and I then formed the opinion, which all my subsequent knowledge of him has only confirmed, that he was a man of very exceptional intellectual...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: New Clause. — (Super-tax on undistributed income of certain companies.) (27 Jun 1922)

Sir Robert Horne: ...evade, as the hon. and gallant Member said, is the important thing. But you can never discover intentions except by overt acts. You cannot get inside a man's head, as has often been said in the Law Courts, and discover what his motive is. You can only interpret his motive from what he does. What is the overt act which leads you to suspect an intention to evade? It is the fact that he does...


Mr Robert Munro: ...of, and with the entire assent and approval of, the four Scottish Universities, and it has been passed in another place without Amendment. Its purpose is to extend the existing power of University Courts to pass ordinances. It enables ordinances to be made for three purposes, which are enumerated in the Bill, and all of which I hope the House will agree are desirable purposes. The...

Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Navy.: George Elsey (Prosecution). (10 Jul 1922)

Mr Robert Sanders: No; I am not prepared to admit that a court of inquiry of British soldiers would not come to an honest conclusion.

Orders of the Day — Economy (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill. (10 Jul 1922)

Sir Robert Horne: ...particular areas. That, undoubtedly, is the object of the Clause dealing with that matter. There are other provisions to get rid of a doubt which is created by a case recently decided in the Law? Courts—the case of "Hanson v. Radcliffe Urban District Council"—which raised the difficulty that, whereas in provided schools the Board of Education is in a position to decide upon the amount...

Finance Bill: New Clause. — (Relief from Entertainments Duty.) (12 Jul 1922)

Sir Robert Horne: I have not the power to define. Only the Law Courts have that. But at the Treasury one has the power to say which are evading the law and which are not.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: Clause 21. — (Amendment as to allowance for maintenance, repairs, etc.) (13 Jul 1922)

Sir Robert Horne: ...taking the whole thing together, the expense would be included in the expenses of management. On the other hand, you raise an entirely different issue, as I take it, though it would be for the Law Courts to decide, where an individual employed no one to collect his rents but collected them himself. Under those circumstances, it would be difficult to include the collection of rents under...

Honours Lists.: Sir Robert Balfour (Personal Explanation). (18 Jul 1922)

Mr Robert Balfour: .... Member for Canterbury will admit, such contracts made in Chile are subject to Chilean law, and they had to be fulfilled in any circumstances, or, at all events, it was a question for the Chilean courts to decide whether they should be fulfilled or not. The fulfilment of those contracts spread over a considerable period—some four or five years—and they were continued after the War...

Orders of the Day — Canadian Cattle Embargo. (24 Jul 1922)

Mr William Shaw: ...has experience or knowledge of the intricacies of rural life. It seems to me a very narrow and absurd basis of criticism. One might as well say that no judge is competent to preside in the Divorce Court unless he has intimate and personal knowledge of the mode of life which brings one within the jurisdiction of that Court. We shall be told that the farmers and the whole agricultural...

Orders of the Day — Criminal Law Amendment Bill. (25 Jul 1922)

Lord Robert Cecil: ...that he put forward. I do not think this is sound. If he had said there are girls, unfortunately, who really incite the boy, I should have had sympathy with him. We have all seen cases in the courts. I remember hearing a learned judge say that they wished they had power to punish the girls in such cases as well. In the words of the Attorney-General, you must call upon her to assist in her...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland.: Land Court (Report). (27 Jul 1922)

Mr Robert Munro: The reason, I understand, is that there have been communications between the Land Courts and the Stationery Office in regard to the form of the Report.

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Air Estimates, 1922–23. (27 Jul 1922)

Mr Charles Ammon: ...urge and bring pressure to bear upon Labour representatives and trade unionists to take their disputes to arbitration, and they have themselves set up the very elaborate machinery of the Industrial Courts for this purpose. Therefore we are simply asking that what they have accepted hitherto they shall apply in principle to their own Department and. maintain what they have impressed should...

Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Navy.: Rent Restrictions Act. (27 Nov 1922)

Mr Robert Nichol: ...Secretary for Scotland, if he is aware that tenants of houses in Barrhead, Renfrewshire, to whom the house factors and landlords owe considerable sums of money under the recent decision of the Law Courts, are receiving from the factors notices threatening them with eviction if they do not continue to pay the increased rentals which have been declared to be illegal, and informing the...
