Canlyniadau 1–20 o 35 ar gyfer speaker:Sir William Rees

Orders of the Day — Roman Catholic Relief Bill.: New Clause. — (Savings relating to the Church of England and saving of rights of title.) ( 3 Rha 1926)

Sir William Rees: I do not belong to the Church of England and I am not a Roman Catholic; I represent the rather big body of Free Church opinion, and they look upon this Bill with favour because they believe in civil and religious liberty. I have just had sent me a Resolution from the Committee of the Evangelical Free Churches. After very carefully considering the Bill, they have passed a Resolution in which...

Orders of the Day — Roman Catholic Relief Bill.: New Clause. — (Savings relating to the Church of England and saving of rights of title.) ( 3 Rha 1926)

Sir William Rees: Certainly, a Wesleyan should not interfere any more than a Roman Catholic or a Jew. I hope the time is soon coming when the Church of England will have complete control over its own livings. Therefore, I would appeal to the supporters of the Bill to agree to the suggestion of the Solicitor-General and take out the reference to this particular old Act. I think, if that were done, it would...

Orders of the Day — Mining Industry Bill.: Clause 17. — (Provision of washing and drying accommodation.) (27 Gor 1926)

Sir William Rees: A shilling a week per man or per bath?

Orders of the Day — Boards of Guardians (Default) Bill. ( 9 Gor 1926)

Sir William Rees: I should not intervene in this debate to-day but for the fact that this Amendment is one to which I referred yesterday. My criticism is that there are no safeguards in the Bill; at least the safeguards are not sufficient. I suggested yesterday that if the Minister of Health could accept this Amendment, I should be quite satisfied, because we on this side are not opposed to the principle of...

Orders of the Day — Boards of Guardians (Default) Bill. ( 8 Gor 1926)

Sir William Rees: I have no intention of discussing the merits of the West Ham case. I have got sufficient data to judge of that case; but this Bill goes very far beyond West Ham. In confers powers upon the Minister of Health which will have to be used with great care. I wish the right hon. Gentleman would accept the Amendment in some form. There are not sufficient safeguards in the Bill. A Select Committee is...

Orders of the Day — Boards of Guardians (Default) Bill. ( 8 Gor 1926)

Sir William Rees: I beg to move, in page 1, line 6, after the word "Where," to insert the words at any time before the first day of January, nineteen hundred and twenty-eight. It is obvious that the point of the Amendment is to limit the period of the operation of the Bill. In introducing the Bill, the Minister of Health told us that it was the intention of the Government to introduce next year a very...

Orders of the Day — Boards of Guardians (Default) Bill. ( 8 Gor 1926)

Sir William Rees: This Measure deals with one of the fundamental principles of local government, and my contention is that if you are taking such extreme powers as those contained in this Bill it should only be done for a limited period. I would like to ask the Minister of Health if he will meet us if we agree to a compromise and accept a period of 18 months.

Orders of the Day — Boards of Guardians (Default) Bill. ( 8 Gor 1926)

Sir William Rees: May I ask for a reply to my question?

Orders of the Day — Mining Industry Bill.: Motion for Second Reading. (23 Meh 1926)

Sir William Rees: From what I could gather of the last speech, if the owners carried out the scheme of reorganisation it would be the end of all our difficulties, and the present controversy would very soon come to an end. Reorganisation is a word that is used too largely at the moment. I am not here to say reorganisation is not necessary. I agree that it is, but merely to keep on talking about reorganisation...

Orders of the Day — Mining Industry Bill.: Motion for Second Reading. (23 Meh 1926)

Sir William Rees: That is a statement of fact which no one can deny. I support Part III of the Bill very heartily. The mineral owner will pay 5 per cent. on about £6,500,000, and that will go into the provision of pithead baths and other facilities of that kind. That is a step in the right direction. I am all for improving the amenities of our colliery districts. This Bill will not solve our difficulites, but...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Mines Department of the Board of Trade. (28 Gor 1925)

Sir William Rees: I agree with so much that has been said by speakers on the 'benches above the Gangway that I shall not follow to any great extent the points they are discussing. I must very cordially congratulate the Member for Gower (Mr. D. Grenfell) in having put up one of the strongest cases I had ever heard on the question of accidents. These are real facts that the public ought to know. The figures are...

Orders of the Day — Contributory Pensions Bill. (15 Gor 1925)

Sir William Rees: I have listened to the Debate with a perfectly open mind and I think the case put up for this Amendment is unanswerable on the basis of equity, on the basis of fair play, and certainly on the basis of honour. We have had no answer from the Parliamentary Secretary which would justify the rejection of the Amendment. I do not intend to go into the legal aspect of the question, but the main point...

Orders of the Day — Contributory Pensions Bill. (13 Gor 1925)

Sir William Rees: I very much agree with the speech of the hon. Member for Central Cardiff (Mr. Lougher), but there is more in this system than the card system or the schedule system. As I understand, this Amendment takes out of the Bill another big section that would otherwise come under it. The Amendment seeks to leave out the non-domiciled seamen from the operation of the Bill, because it seeks to omit from...

Orders of the Day — Contributory Pensions Bill. (13 Gor 1925)

Sir William Rees: It will probably satisfy any probable criticism raised on these benches when I say this proposal for leaving out non-domiciled men is an agreement entered into between shipowners on the one side, and the representatives of the Trade Unions on the other. At least the National Sailors' and Firemen's Union and the Shipowners' Association agreed, because it was understood that it was unfair to...

Orders of the Day — Unemployment (Coal Industry). ( 8 Gor 1925)

Sir William Rees: I am very glad to find myself entirely in sympathy with the right hon. Member for the Ogmore Division (Mr. Hartshorn). I think that his speech sums up the whole situation, and does credit to himself and to the party to which he belongs. I wish that he had carried his investigations a little further. I am sorry that he is not in his place, because I cannot believe first of all in his figures....

Orders of the Day — Unemployment (Coal Industry). ( 8 Gor 1925)

Sir William Rees: We can at least compare different years. The comparison is perfectly correct and it is also fair. The output, per man employed is the only possible test when you come to consider the price of coal. As I have said, the output per man in 1913 was 20.3 cwts. In 1924 the output had fallen to 17"79 cwts. per man per shift. That is a fall of 13 per cent. per man per shift. Since the 1924 agreement,...

Orders of the Day — Unemployment (Coal Industry). ( 8 Gor 1925)

Sir William Rees: I am not for the moment suggesting whose job it is. I am suggesting what can be done. If the Government can do it, let them. If we can have more modern machinery and induce coalowners to employ more scientific methods, the 1913 output can be once more attained. If we can get the 1913 output there need not be any question of the lengthening of hours; if we can get back to an output of one ton...

Orders of the Day — Unemployment (Coal Industry). ( 8 Gor 1925)

Sir William Rees: In 1913 it was 6s. l0½d. wages cost, and 9s. 4d. for cost of coal. The other was, in 1924, 13s. 63d. labour cost, against a total cost of 19s. l¼d. I think you will find that the proportion of other costs has increased by less than the wages cost, but probably some hon. Members above the Gangway will work out the calculation and give us the exact figure. Let me make a comparison with other...

Orders of the Day — Mining Industry (Welfare Fund) Bill. ( 6 Gor 1925)

Sir William Rees: We have watched the operations of this Fund, and whatever may be said as to the Sankey Fund we certainly approve of the payments out of the Fund, and its use for the benefits of the miners. On the owners' side we have watched the development of the Fund, and seen its administration— [HON. MEMBERS: "Agreed!"]—and we are in agreement with it.

Orders of the Day — Tithe Bill. (18 Meh 1925)

Sir William Rees: In opposing the Bill, I should like to say at the outset that it is not because I am not in sympathy with the ministers of the Church of England, but there is another point of view which has not so far been emphasised this afternoon, at any rate, from my particular angle. A deputation was received by the Minister of Agriculture recently, and he gave them a promise which I hardly think is...
