Orders of the Day — Ministry of Health Bill. (26 Feb 1919)

Mr Donald Maclean: The House will congratulate my right hon. Friend on the clear and excellent way in which he laid this very important measure before the House. No one is better entitled to do so. By his professional skill, his long Parliamentary experience, and his fine public spirit, he is essentially the man to introduce such a measure. I congratulate him on dropping Scotland out of the Bill, because I can...

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Ways and Communications Bill.: Unified Transportation Control. (17 Mar 1919)

Sir Eric Geddes: I beg to move, "That the Bill be now read a second time." I propose to deal with this Bill, first, as to the problem which confronts the Government; secondly, as to the Government's conception of the scope of the Ministry of Ways and Communications; thirdly, to give certain detailed information as to the financial position of the various transportation services to-day; and, finally, as...

Orders of the Day — Public Expenditure (4 Jun 1919)

Mr Thomas Davies: I represent a purely agricultural district, and I confess that I am absolutely lost when I come to matters of finance. I have listened to the speech of the hon. Member for Whitehaven (Mr. Grant) and the speech of the right hon. Baronet the Member for the City of London (Sir F. Banbury), and although both of them have been advocating economy neither of them put a finger on the spot where we...

Orders of the Day — National Health Insurance Bill. (3 Jul 1919)

Hon. Waldorf Astor: I beg to move That the Bill be now read a second time. The House earlier this afternoon considered probably the most important Bill it will have before it at any time in its history. The Bill which I am now asking the House to give a Second Reading to is probably one of the smallest it will have to deal with this Session. But though it is a small Bill it is a necessary—in fact it is an...

Orders of the Day — Electricity (Supply) Bill.: Clause 5. — (Constitution of District Electricity Boards.) (20 Nov 1919)

...subsequent time they should have the opportunity of coming in and dissolving the joint electricity authority and substituting for it a district electricity board. The Amendment we have just agreed to is of little or no use by itself. What does it mean if you say you will not revoke an Order, but that at some later date you reserve to yourselves the right of putting these people in a...

Orders of the Day — War Emergency Laws (Continuance) Bill. (16 Feb 1920)

Mr Joseph Devlin: I should not have thought that there would have been so much force required to press the right hon. and learned Gentleman to make the speech which he has just delivered. It is a very modest and a very simple contribution to the debate. One really would have thought that the right hon. and learned Gentleman was presiding at a tea party, telling what a pleasant environment and atmosphere...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Ministry of Transport. (10 Mar 1920)

Mr Marshall Stevens: Immingham and Hull, which are in the possession of the Minister of Transport. Cargoes have been landed there, consigned to paper works on the West Coast, which have their discharge berths and which could take those cargoes, and yet they are taken across the country. Why? Because the Coal Controller is charging approximately £5 per ton extra for bunker coal to those steamers if they go to the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Hungary.: Railway Wagons (Sale in Belgium). (11 Mar 1920)

Mr Frederick Kellaway: I have been asked to reply to this question. Of the 15,000 wagons sold to Belgium, 5,662 were sold by the Ministry of Munitions. These were wagons of the continental type, which would not pass the English loading gauge or were fitted with a guard's compartment containing brake operating gear of a type not used on the English railways. These wagons were not brought back for adaptation as it...

Orders of the Day — Overseas Trade (Credits and Insurance). (24 Mar 1920)

Lieut-Colonel Penry Williams: I took down the statement made by the hon. Gentleman, and I think he said that the credits might run for two or three years. That is a proposition which no business man would look at; and, if it be not good enough for an ordinary commercial man, surely it is not a transaction that the Government ought to enter into with the money of the public. They are the custodians of the money of the...

Orders of the Day — Supply [15TH Allotted Day].: Supply. (1 Jul 1920)

Mr William Royce: ..., and again this afternoon, eulogised the older Board of Trade administration of the railways. The right hon. Gentleman the Member for Norwich (Mr. G. Roberts), who is an ex-Parliamentary Secretary to the same Department, took an entirely different view, and said that the Department was totally unequal to the duties imposed upon it in connection with the railways of this country. With the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport.: Motor Vehicles (Left-Hand Drive). (12 Jul 1920)

Lieut-Colonel Martin Archer-Shee: asked the Minister of Transport (1) whether he is aware of the many advantages of the left-hand drive for motor vehicles when driving in foggy weather, accessibility to both front seats, and the fact that the change-speed lever and brake are in the middle of the car, and their use by the right hand of the driver is more efficient than when placed on the left hand; (2) whether he is aware that...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill. (12 Jul 1920)

Mr Stanley Baldwin: In answer to my right hon. Friend who has just, spoken, it would be more convenient if the Chancellor of the Exchequer were to give expression to what he may be able to say when the Clauses are put before the Committee, and when he is able to see in black and white what further concessions, if any, hon. Members desire. It is impossible at this moment to say more on that point, nor am I...

Orders of the Day — Government of Ireland.: Vote of Censure Proposed. (20 Oct 1920)

Mr Hamar Greenwood: ...present state of lawlessness in Ireland, and the lack of discipline in the armed forces of the Crown, resulting in the death or injury of innocent citizens and the destruction of property. I want to point out to the House that the right hon. Gentleman's reading of the recent history of Ireland will not do. The suggestion is that all these awful outrages and the disastrous and almost...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport.: Motor Chars-a-Banc (Brakes). (22 Nov 1920)

Viscount Curzon: 80. asked the Minister of Transport whether his attention has been drawn to the recommendation of the common jury with reference to the very serious and fatal accident to a motor char-à-banc at Oxenhope that a third or emergency brake should be fitted to all heavy public service motor vehicles; and whether he will take steps in future legislation affecting such vehicles to give effect to...

Orders of the Day — Railways Bill. (26 May 1921)

On the other hand, if the Great Northern was ordered to build locomotives corresponding to those used by the other companies all the money would be wasted which has been spent on strengthening roads and providing engines to haul large trains. The right hon. Gentleman thinks that is a proper thing to do, and the Great Northern has now an engine which hauls 1,300 tons. There is a plain simple...

Orders of the Day — Ways and Means [11TH May]: Safeguarding of Industries. (31 May 1921)

Dr. MURRAY: I beg to move to leave out paragraph (a). This paragraph refers to optical glasses. We discussed this thing in Committee and I have had several communications from people interested in these articles which show there is ample evidence of a growing opposition to the imposition of a tax upon these very necessary items in the scientific world. I admit there is no great demonstration...

Clause 1. — Provisions for giving the force of law to and currying into effect Irish Agreement. (6 Mar 1922)

Mr Thomas Moles: I do not care under what rule it was. That does not make it any better from my hon. Friend's point of view. He will agree with me, if he has the regard for law and order, which I suspect him to have in his heart, that that sort of thing ought not to go on, and that any Treaty, or any law, or any system of Government which permits it, stands condemned by the facts. Let me take another case....

Housing. (13 Mar 1922)

Mr Thomas Myers: I was hoping, with regard to the all-round demand that has been made in reference to housing, that we should receive from the Minister some assurance that in the near future a reversal of the existing housing policy was contemplated. I feel profound disappointment at the Minister's statement with regard to that, and I am inclined to believe that that disappointment is shared by most of us on...

Orders of the Day — Ways and Means.: Amendment of Law. (2 May 1922)

Sir Cyril Entwistle: I desire to support the policy of the Chancellor of the Exchequer in reducing the Income Tax, and also in not bothering too much during this financial year in paying off debt. Of course, if it could be achieved by means of economy one would be in favour of it, but whatever economies are achieved at the present moment I think it far better that the amount of those economies should go in relief...
