Orders of the Day — Irish Free State (Consequential Provisions) Bill. (27 Nov 1922)

Mr Charles Roberts: ...the head of a provincial government in Canada or South Africa. They get about £2,500. 11.0 P.M. You appear to be trying to set up in Northern Ireland a kind of diminished section of the Viceregal Court, and although I agree that out of his £8,000 the Governor has to find his personal staff, whatever that may be, are you going to set him up with a kind of general staff of a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Ex-Service Men.: Mental Cases. (6 Dec 1922)

Mr Robert Richardson: and other inmates of asylums in instances where it cannot be proved against the patients that they are dangerous and unfit to be at large, he will take measures for the institution of an appeal court, not connected with the lunacy or pensions administrations, to which inmates would be entitled to present their applications for freedom in accordance with the rights, at present held in...

Orders of the Day — Civil Services Supplementary Estimates, 1922–23.: Army Supplementary Estimate, 1922–23. (12 Dec 1922)

Mr Charles Roberts: ...there is a moral liability; I think it might be put higher than they choose to put it. They are ready to shoulder up to 10s. in the £. Anyone who has considered the situation would admit that in a Court of Law there would be no legal liability. That is clear. The Treasury have safeguarded themselves by taking up a position which clearly could not have been known to those officers. These...

Orders of the Day — Railway Fires Act (1905) Amendment Bill. (23 Mar 1923)

Mr Herbert Sparkes: demolish the arguments of the Solicitor-General if they are again advanced. But against them may be pitted the remarks that fell from an ex-Lord Chancellor who was Attorney-General in 1905—Sir Robert Finlay. He brushed aside all the sophistries and the subtleties of the Law Courts and poured a cold cascade of common sense on the lawyers arguments by taking the robust layman's view...

Agricultural Holdings Acts (Amendment) Bill (23 Mar 1923)

Mr Robert Sanders: The Government are quite in sympathy with the Bill. It deals with one of those cases in which Parliament meant one thing and the Courts hold that it has said another. The effect of the Bill is merely to say the law shall be what most people thought it was a year ago. The Government support the Bill and hope it will have a Second Reading.

Orders of the Day — Salmon and Freshwater Fisheries Bill. (9 Apr 1923)

Mr Robert Sanders: It would not affect the common law right of a private person bringing an action for damages. This Bill only affects criminal prosecutions. A private person might bring an action in a Civil Court for damages, and this Bill does not affect that in any way whatever.

Army and Air Force (Annual)Bill.: New Clause. — (Amendment Of Section 4). (12 Apr 1923)

...Brown, Major D, C. (Hex-ham) Colvin, Brig.-General Richard Beale Barns-ton, Major Harry Brown, Brig.-Gen. Clifton (Newbury) Cope. Major William Becker. Harry Brown, J. W. (Middlesbrough, E.) Court-hope, Lieut.-Col. George L. Berry, Sir George Bruton, Sir James Craig, Captain C. C. (Antrim, South) Birchall, Major J. Dear-man Buckley, Lieut. Colonel A. Crook, C. W. (East Ham. North)...

Orders of the Day — Liquor Traffic Prohibition Bill. (20 Apr 1923)

Mr Edwin Scrymgeour: ...going on without licence? Does this House not con gain records of those who have suffered under this terrible thing. Does not every section of life, in our Press Agencies, in the wells of our law courts, on the benches of our country and in all departments of the State agree on this point without distinction. In the heart and soul of every man and woman there must be some sort of...

Orders of the Day — HOUSING, ETC. (No. 2), BILL. (24 Apr 1923)

Mr David Kirkwood: ...are a standing disgrace. Mr. Speaker, when you intervened to protect the Minister when he was insulting my class what was he talking about? He said a parlour 12 feet by 8 feet was big enough to court in. Do you think I was to sit calmly in my seat and listen to my class being insulted in that fashion. Let me tell you the working class know how to court and the individual who spoke does...

Orders of the Day — Supply. (26 Apr 1923)

Mr Campbell Stephen: ...from this side of the House, not to the present Minister of Labour, but to an ex-Minister of Labour. I would have liked to have congratulated the right hon. Member for Norwich (Mr. G. Roberts) on the way in which he has acquired the point of view, if not the accent, of Members on the other side of the House. I would have liked to have said a little to him about how much we on this side of...

Orders of the Day — Rent Restrictions (Notices of Increase) Bill.: Clause 1. — (Effect of notices to increase rent under principal Act): (3 May 1923)

Mr Robert Nichol: ...the Attorney-General ought to put in this definition, because from another point of view a very large amount of ambiguity has arisen from the phrase. Last July when the case, having passed from the Court of Session in Edinburgh, was pending an appeal to the House of Lords, it was part of my work to investigate more than 1,100 rent books. I spent more than a month going over these rent...

Berwick-upon-Tweed Election Petition. (8 May 1923)

We, Sir Horace Edmund Avory, Knight, and Sir John Sankey, Knight, G.B.E., Judges of the High Court of Justice and two of the Judges on the Rota for the time being for the trial of Election Petitions in England and Wales, do hereby certify in pursuance of the Said Parliamentary Elections Act, 1868, and the Parliamentary Elections and Corrupt Practices Act, 1879, that upon the 25th, 26th, 27th,...

Orders of the Day — Rent Restrictions (Notices of Increase) Bill. (8 May 1923)

Sir Robert Horne: ...necessary on the rent problem, and I think, if I mistake not, he was responsible for insisting upon retrospective legislation in connection with this very matter as against the decision of the Court of Appeal. I am not at all surprised when he says you cannot make too rigid a rule on one side or the other; but once the Government had arrived at conclusions that the people who had not paid...

Orders of the Day — Rent and Mortgage Interest Restrictions Bill.: Clause 5. — (Notice of increase of rent.) (10 Jul 1923)

Mr Robert Murray: The chief objection which seems to me to exist against the Clause as it stands is that it is now proposed to put on a Court of law a duty which ought to belong entirely to the individual. Under this Clause it is now open to the landlord to come into Court with the most ill-digested, ill-prepared statement, and to put upon the Court the duty of amending his mistakes. This Clause will make for...

Orders of the Day — Civil Services and Revenue Departments Estimates, 1923–24.: Home Office. (12 Jul 1923)

Mr Robert Jones: I want to plead with the Home Secretary to deal with an injustice from which we suffer in Wales, and that is, that we are debarred by the law from taking the oath in the courts of justice in our own language. In many instances this has been allowed, but lately we have had legal opinion expressed that we have not the right to do it, and it has been made perfectly clear that we were only...

Orders of the Day — Civil Services and Revenue Departments Estimates, 1923–24.: Police, England and Wales. (12 Jul 1923)

Mr Robert Morrison: ...the sergeant in charge that the driver was drunk and fighting with a passenger. The police-sergeant came down and the omnibus driver, who had not left his seat, was arrested. Charged at the Police Court next morning, he was sentenced to 14 days' hard labour for driving an omnibus while in a state of intoxication. The driver, only then realising the seriousness of the position he was in,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport.: Probation Orders. (26 Jul 1923)

Sir Robert Newman: 37. asked the Home Secretary whether he will consider making special representations to those Courts which show a particularly low percentage of probation orders to cases, in order to impress upon such Courts the importance of an increased use of probation and the appointment of an adequate number of probation officers, in view of the fact that the mere general circularisation of all Courts...

Sessional Orders:: Internment of a Member. (MR. Cahir H Ealy). (15 Jan 1924)

Mr William Pringle: ...same position, was discharged on 2nd April, 1673. George Galway Mills, who was in the custody of the Master of the King's Bench, was discharged on 8th July, 1807, and I now come to the latest case, Robert Christie Burton, who was discharged on 28th January, 1819. The only exception to that rule was a case which occurred in 1452, and that was the case of a Member called Thorpe, who was...

Government Policy. (14 Feb 1924)

Mr Robert Mitchell: ...derived under the Crofters Act by the tribunal which was set up to fix fair rents for the crofter. This has been a source of great national benefit. Again, and quite recently, we have had the Land Courts established to fix fair rent for the smallholders. That Court is composed of practical men, legally guided. If the principle of that Court were applied to the larger farms, I submit it...

Orders of the Day — Rent Restrictions Bill. (22 Feb 1924)

Mr Samuel Roberts: ...that objective. On the contrary, it goes back a long way, and turns round in the absolutely opposite direction —a direction which must lead ultimately to definite control, and possibly to Rent Courts and other things that hon. Gentlemen opposite desire. Those who wish to see control continued, extended and strengthened, will support this Bill, but I feel sure that the Liberal stalwart...
