DEBRETT CHARITY SUPPLEMENT. 



The first Institution 

of which Queen Alexandra became 
Patroness, after coming to England, was 
the British Home and Hospital for In- 
curables (Streatham). That was in 1861, 
and Her Majesty has taken the greatest 
possible personal interest in its welfare 
ever since. The Committee urgently needs, 
and earnestly appeals for, help. 

The only reliable annual income is 
£5,000. The yearly expenditure is £25,000. 
The sum of £7,000 is owing to the Bankers. 
This Institution, the welfare 

of which Queen Alexandra 

has so keenly at heart, is for MIDDLE- 
CLASS PEOPLE ONLY. It provides (i) 
a home for life, or (2) a pension for Ufe for 
those who have spent their all in fruitless 
efforts to regain health and strength, and 
retain their cherished independence. You 
are cordially invited to visit the Home any 
day, and you are most earnestly asked to 
help this deserving and suffering class — 
so slow to plead their own great need, and 
for which so little is done. 

Please send a contribution to the Secre- 
tary, Mr. Edgar Penman, 72, Cheapside, 
London, E.C.2, and so help the first 
Institution in England of which Queen 
Alexandra 

became Patroness.

A Great Hospitars 
Urgent Appeal. 

Few of those who gaze from Westminster Bridge on the 
handsome blocks of St. Thomas's Hospital realise that 
this is one of the most ancient Charities of London. 

First founded at Southwark in the days of King John 
and endowed to the memory of Thomas a Becket, the 
Martyr of Canterbury, in 1553, this religious foundation 
was re-endowed by Edward VI. 

From those days it has ever been in the forefront in the 
art of healing. 

In i860, in the old buildings at Southwark at the Surrey 
end of London Bridge, Florence Nightingale established 
the first great training school for nurses in England. Her 
Majesty Queen Victoria opened the present buildings for 
the reception of patients on June 21st, 1871. 

St. Thomas's Hospital. 

Pathological laboratories, operating theatres offering 
every facility for the practice of perfect aseptic surgery, 
well -equipped special departments have been provided, 
until we have a hospital fully typical of the voluntary 
hospitals of England, which are the admiration of visitors 
from all parts of the world. 

During the war 11,376 officers and other ranks were 
received from various seats of war and treated in the 
hospital. 

The cost of carrying on the work has increased enor- 
mousl}', and the Governors find themselves faced with 
a crippling debt of /xoo,ooo. 

St. Thomas's has done great work in the past and can do 
even more in the future, but it must be cleared of 
this debt. 

Lambeth knows what the Hospital does for it, and 
Lambeth pays. Does Park Lane recognise the claims of 
the Hospital where its doctors study and its nurses are 
trained ? 

Will you, who read this, kindly help by sending a donation 
to the treasurer, the Hon. Sir Arthur Stanley, and become 
an annual subscriber to meet the needs of the Hospital. 
G. Q. ROBERTS. Secretary.

How does the 

National Institute for the Blind 

Help Blind Folk ? 

■ ■ ■ 

■ ■ 

M 

1. It bears a very heavy financial responsibility for many important 
institutions all over Great Britain for the training and education of the 
blind, and provides practically all the Braille literature for the whole 
British Empire. 

2. It maintains the most up-to-date and best-equipped School of 
Massage in the country' for blind people of both sexes, and takes practi- 
cal steps to help ex-students to build remunerative careers. 

3. It is the sole producer of literature in Moon type for the entire 
English-speaking world. 

4. It has a widely-developed department for the printing and dis- 
semination of Braille music, without which blind musicians would be 
helpless. 

5. It maintains an old-estatlished and far-reaching organisation for 
visiting, assisting, and training the blind in their own homes. 

6. It expends thousands of pounds annually on the relief of needy 
blind persons. 

7. It undertakes the financial responsibility and conduct of Worcester 
College for blind boys, and the newly-established college at Chorley 
Wood for blind girls. 

8. It cares for the Deaf- Blind — those condemned to life-long darkness 
and silence. 

9. It is responsible for the upkeep of Hoole Bank, Chester, for blind 
persons of good social position who are unable to maintain themselves 
in comfort. 

10. It maintains a home at Clifton for blind women of the poorer 
classes, and a similar home at Brighton : also a hostel for blind women 
workers in London. 

11. It carries out much important research work with regard to 
apparatus and materials generally of wide importance to the blind, 
and the manufacture of these. 

12. It maintains the only home in the Empire for blind babies — 
" Sunshine House " at Chorley Wood — and proposes to equip and 
maintain several more " Sunshine Houses." 

The proper discharge of these obligations depends 
entirely upon the generous response of the public.

Once again I plead for the General Fund of this Society. 
£2,000 is needed, and needed at once. Gifts of £$ and upwards 
will be thankfully received, also smaller sums from those who 
cannot afford to give large ones. 

There are many people who may not be able to help 
in their lifetime ; from them I beg a legacy, however small. 
Everyone who can, I hope, will help us, for unless we get the 
sum needed it will be very serious, as the Society cannot 
exist for long unless the General Fund is supported.

To Rescue is Good but 

TO PREVENT IS BETTER 

A MEDICAL AUTHORITY writing in Public Health says : " To 
prevent disease is desirable . . . but the raising of the standard of 
conduct by the methods of the moralist and social reformer is im- 
measurably more important." 

PERSONAL PURITY Campaigns amongst the young 
men of the Nation are conducted in CHRISTIAN 
PRINCIPLES year in and year out bv the workers of the 

ALLIANCE OF HONOUR 

{Inter-denominational. Founded 1903). 

Readers are cordially invited to write for particulars of our pro- 
gramme and methods. As the work is maintained through Voluntary 
Gifts, your support would be valued. 

What will you do to Help this Christ-like Work ?

HOMELESS CHILDREN'S 
AID AND ADOPTION SOCIETY 

Chairman of Committee : Rev. F. B. MEYER. B.A., D.D. 

The aim of this Society is to befriend the children of unmarried 
mothers, and give them a fair chance in life. It receives little 
children, under five years of age, into its Home ; endeavours to 
make the father contribute towards support ; and, if desired, 
arranges for the adoption of such children as are considered 
suitable, after careful investigation, as to the fitness of the 
adopting parents. 

Over 40.000 of these children are born in the United Kingdom 
every year — the serious wastage in child-life consequent on 
illegitimacy demands the grave attention of all who are con- 
cerned in oiir National well-heinii.

No'w daddy plays 

POOR daddy used to say he 
was a stranger to his own 
children, but that was be- 
toie he got the TriumphAuto. 

All fond of music, none of us played well, and our strumming 
and vamping got on daddy's nerves, so we visited friends for 
musical evenings. 

Daddy didn't come — usually too tired after the business 
day. Then he got the TriumphAuto. Now things are 
different ; he's quite a new daddy, we never dreamed he 
had so much music in him. 

You see, the TriumphAuto is different from an ordinary 
player piano, daddy can play anything — classical master- 
pieces, song accompaniments, and dances — but it's daddy 
playing, it's all his own expression and touch. Now we're 
usually at home and friends foregather for our musical 
evenings. 

You should send for the free illustrated book which explains 
the unique controls — -the Triumphodist — the Temponomc, 
and other features which make good music a possible art 
for you, or call at the Triumph.\uto Showrooms and test 
this instrument yourself. 

The TriumphAuto is built in several styles of Grand, Baby 
Grand and Cottage models, with beautifully finished cases 
in a variety of good woods.

THE UNION OF SOUTH AFRICA 



FACTS FOR THE 
HOME-MAKER^: 

IN the present post-war re- adjustment, when 
so many are considering the question of 
restarting overseas, the Union of South Africa 
merits special attention from those who 
have a taste for rural life and sufficient capital to 
acquire and develop land. 

The climate is invigorating and pleasant, and the 
residential conditions are attractive. It is a large 
country, with such variety of formation that in 
some part or other the prospective farmer will find 
just the environment in which he and his family 
are likely to be happy, and the means of making 
a living there from agriculture. There are many 
portions of the Union of South Africa in which, 
among noble surroundings, under outdoor healthful 
conditions, a farmer working competently may 
through the years build up a valuable estate. 

Not less than ;^2,ooo is required for even a modest 
start. There are good facilities for obtaining train- 
ing and guidance before investing capital. Full 
particulars should in the first instance be obtained 
from the Office of the High Commissioner for the 
Union of South Africa, Trafalgar Square, W.C.2.

PREFACE. 



|HE elections to the Southern and Northern Padiaments of 
Ireland, under the provisions of the Government of Ireland 
Act 1920, were held in May and June of last „ .. 
year, the Northern Parliament being opened ^' i^\t 
by the King in person (accompanied by the |_-|.,jj 
Queen) on June 22nd, 1921, and in his speech on that occa- 
sion His Majesty laid the foundation of the future steps taken to engender 
peace in Ireland. A distribution of Honours took place in connection 
with the opening. 

Although the subsequent attempt made by the Government in July 
192 1 to bring about a settlement of Irish affairs proved abortive, and 
Parliament was prorogued in November following without „ 
success having eventuated in this connection, the Recess cf*A _r 
happily proved more fruitful in results, as in the small hours jf^i^^^i 
of the morning of December 6th an Agreement between the 
Government and the Representatives of Southern Ireland was signed, 
providing for the establishment of a Free State of Ireland. This Agree- 
ment was ratified by the Imperial Parliament at a short Session Decem- 
ber 14th to 19th, 192 1, was confirmed by a majority of Dail Eireann on 
January 7th, 1922, and was ratified by the Southern Parliament of Ireland 
(called together for that purpose) on the 14th of the same month, a Pro- 
visional Government at the same time being set up to carry out, with the 
British Government, the necessary arrangements of transfer under the 
Treaty. 

As, however, both time and legislation will be required before the 
Irish Free State can be finally constituted, when Southern Ireland will 
cease to have representatives in the Imperial Parliament, details 
regarding all those returned to the thirty-first Parliament of the United 
Kingdom at the election of 1918 are still included in the present issue of 
"Debrett's House of Commons and the Judicial Bench," and 
for the purposes of record the lists of those elected in May p 
and June 1921 to both the Southern and Northern Parlia- 277V0 284 
ments of Ireland and the Southern and Northern Senates, 
as well as to the Council of Ireland, have been added ; in the Judicial 
Bench the Judges of the High Court, both in Southern and Northern 
Ireland, are given as constituted last year. 

In April 1921 the Rt. Hon. James Lowther resigned the Speakership 
of the House of Commons, which he had held since 1905, having been 
four times re-elected, and was succeeded in that Office by « , 
the Rt. Hon. John Henry Whitley, M.P. for Halifax, the ^p«»""- 
ninth to hold it since the date of the Reform Act of 1832. Shortly 
after his retirement the Rt. Hon. James Lowther's services to the House 
of Commons were rewarded with the customary Viscountcy, and he is now 
known as Viscount Ullswater. Of ihe Viscountcies conferred on the 
seven other Speakers who have occupied the Chair since the date of the 
Reform Act four are still in existence : those conferred on Speakers 
.Manners- Sutton, Brand, Peel, and Gully, by the respective titles of \'is- 
counts Canterbury, Hampden, Peel, and Sclby, while those bestowed on 
Speakers Abercromby, Shaw-Lefevre, and Denison, as Viscounts Dun- 
fermline, Eversley, and Ossington respectively, have meanwhile become 
extinct, although the second-mentioned dignity was subsequently revived 



k 



XI 1 PREFACE. 

in 1906 as a Barony. The Barony of Onslow, held by the present Earl 
of Onslow, is another title given to a former Speaker of the House of 
Commons, but it was conferred only some years after the termination of 
his short tenure of that ofifice, while the Barony of Colchester, bestowed 
on Speakei Abbot in 1817, became extinct as recently as 1919. 

Another Lady Member in the person of Mrs. Margaret Wintringham 
has now joined Viscountess Astor (the first Lady Member to take her 
. seat) in the House of Commons. This new M.P. was elected 

^ ^, for the Louth Division of Parts of Lindsey in September of 

last year, in place of her deceased husband, who had repre- 
sented that constituency in Parliament since January 1920. The petition 
of Viscountess Rhondda (on behalf of Peeresses in their own right) for a 
writ of summons to sit in the Upper House has been referred to the 
Committee for Privileges of the House of Lords. 

There was a reconstruction of the Ministry in April 1921, which, in 
addition to showing an extensive rearrangement of appointments, included 
_, the acceptance of the Leadership of the House of Commons 

j^.*. . by the Rt. Hon. J. Austen Chamberlain with the Office of 

inis ry. Lord Privy Seal, in place of the Rt. Hon. A. Bonar Law, 
who had resigned, also the retirement of Lieut. -Col. Lord Edmund Ber- 
nard Talbot, G.C.V.O., D.S.O., M.V.O. (Deputy Earl Marshal) from 
the Office of Parliamentary Patronage Secretary to the Treasury and 
Chief Government Whip upon his appointment to be the first Viceroy 
of Ireland under the Government of Ireland Act 1920, when he was 
created Viscount FitzAlan of Derwent. 

During its three years of existence the present Imperial Parliament 
has had many changes in its personnel. From pages xv to xxvii, under 
_ the heading of " Changes since the General Election Dec. 

hrcc^ 1918 " it will be seen that 70 new Members have been elected 

Ch*'^*e ^^ ^^ result of 84 Bye-elections held; 46 Members have 

resigned their seats or vacated them by reason of appoint- 
ment to Offices of profit under the Crown or on elevation to or succession 
to Peerages ; 33 Members have died, 7 have been raised to the Peerage, 
19 have been sworn of the Privy Council, i name has been added to the 
Order of Merit, and 2 M.P.'s have become Companions of Honour; 20 
Members have been created Baronets, 33 have received the honour of 
Knighthood, 18 have been nominated Commanders or Companions of 
the Orders of Knighthood, 3 Members have succeeded to Peerages and 
4 to Baronetcies, while 7 seats (including 4 Irish) are vacant at the time 
of going to press. 

Included in the Parliamentary Section, in addition to biographies 
of Members of Parliament and full Polling Statistics, will be found lists 
. of the Southern and Northern Parliaments of Ireland as 

Parha- elected 1 921, an abridged Peerage, a list of the Privy 

mentary Council, and " Explanations to Technical Parliamentary 
j" . . . Expressions." An exceptionally large number of new ap- 

G* idc* pointments have had to be chronicled in the Judicial 

Bench Section both at home and abroad, and a Court of 
Appeal for Palestine has been established, details of which are recorded 
among the Colonial Judges.

DEBRETl — ADVERTISEMENTS. XVH 



NEWFOUNDLAND 

THE NORWAY OF THE NEW WORLD 
A LAND OF SURPASSING BEAUTY & RARE INTEREST FOR TRAVELLERS 



THE DISCOVERY. 

When John Cabot, his son and crew of West of England men set sail 
from Bristol in the spring of 1497 in the service of Henry VII., and 
made the Newfoundland coast, a gateway was opened to the New 
World, and a " comer stone " was well and truly laid of the British 
Empire. 

COLONIZATION. 

It was not until the end of the sixteenth century that any effort 
was made to colonize Newfoundland, and even at the present time 
the population of the Island is only about 250,000 people, altogether 
disproportionate to the vastness of the country. 
The Government is a responsible one, granted in 1855. 

OPPORTUNITIES. 

Splendid opportunities to acquire lands for Faiming, Mining, Lumber- 
ing, and Pulp and Paper-making, on reasonable terms exist, with 
concessions as to the free entry of all Machinery and Equipment for 
establishing new industries. 

TYPE OF SETTLER REQUIRED. 

Of applied energy with capital. 

THE LIGHTER SIDE OF LIFE. 

Newfoundland is a Sportsman's Paradise, abounding in game of the 
finest in fin, fur and feather ; lordly Caribou in countless herds, 
rivers filled with Salmon, lakes filled with Trout, and forests alive 
with furry creatures, all sport free except Caribou hunting (License 
£10) and Salmon Fishing (Tax £2). And its Dependency of Labrador 
exceeds in its natural panorama the fjords of Norway. 

SONS OF ENGLAND. 

" What to do with our boys " is the anxious question more than ever 
heard now — unemployment difficulties in commercial life and in 
most professions making a choice for the " future career " of the boys 
a great anxiety to parents. 

In this great Colony of Newfoundland, nature supplies wants which 
over-populated countries have not, and cannot supply, and provided 
new colonizers have what John Cabot had in 1497, " grit," prosperity 
in the future is assured, and they can settle down quickly in an 
essentially British community. 

English fathers with sturdy sons to settle in life will be well advised 
to give them a good start in such a Colony, and the High Commissioner 
for Newfoundland, 



The HON. SIR EDGAR BOWRING, Kt. 

58, Victoria Street, London, 8.W.1, will, no doubt, be pleased to give 
full information as to " opportunities " on application.

EXPLANATION OF TECHNICAL 

PARLIAMENTARY EXPRESSIONS. 

WITH BRIEF DESCRIPTIONS OF THE 

Duties of some of the Higher Officers of State. 



Acceptance of Office. Under sta- 
tute 6 Anne, c. 41, the holder of an office of 
Erofit accepted from the Crown or the Lord- 
.ieutenant of Ireland, is incapacitated for 
a ;eat in Parliament, if the office be created 
since 1705. The acceptor of any office 
created before that year must vacate his 
scat and submit himself to re-election ; but 
by the Representation of the People Act, 
1867, and some Amending Acts, holders 
of the principal offices of State are re- 
lieved from the obligation to submit them- 
selves to re-election, upon a transfer from 
one office to another ; the Law Officers also 
on transfer do not vacate. The legislation 
on the subject is tangled and obscure, but 
the result, broadly speaking, is that holders 
of the higher political offices vacate their 
seats on appomtment, except in cases of 
transfer, but may be re-elected ; that holders 
of minor political offices, who are not ap- 
pointed directly by the Crown, e.g. Under- 
Secretaries of State, do not vacate their 
seats on appointment ; and that Judges, and 
members of the permanent Civil Service are 
disqualified for a seat in Parliament. Holders 
of the following Offices in the Ministry vacate 
their seats on appointment, seeking re- 
election : • — The First Ixjrd of the Treasury ; 
the Lord Privy Seal ; the Chancellor of the 
Exchequer ; the First Lord of the Admiralty ; 
the six Principal Secretaries of State (but 
not the Under Secretaries), the Secretary for 
Scotland ; the Presidents of Boards of 
Apiculture and Education ; the Ministers of 
Health, labour, Pensions and Transport ; 
the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster ; 
the Chief Secretary for Ireland ; the Post- 
master-Gen. ; the First Commissioner of 
Works ; the Junior I-ords of the Treasury 
on fin>t appointment (paid and unpaid) ; the 
Civil I»rd of the Admiralty ; the Attorneys- 
General for England and Ireland ; the Lord 
.Advocate for Scotland ; the three Solicitors- 
General ; and Ministers without Portfolio. 
The following officials of the Koyal House- 
hold also vacate their seats on appoint- 
ment : — Treasurer of the Household ; C-omp- 
troller of the Household; and the Vice- 
Chamberlain. Holders of Civil Service 
pensions are not disqualified. A member 
appointed an Ambassador does not thereby 
vacate his seat. 

Adjournment of its sitting is solely in 

the power of each House of Parliament : but 
if both Houses be adjourned for more than 
fourteen days, the Crown may by proclamation 
direct them to re-assemble. Adjournment by 
the House of Commons (unless pursuant to 
a Standing or Special Order) must be on 
question put and agreed to, except when there 
U " no House." Ntotions for the adjournment 
of the House " on a definite matter of urgent 
public importance," are used as the means of 
discussing a matter of which notice has not 



been given, but this power has been placed 
under limitations by certain rulesof procedure. 
Adjournment of debate may be moved by 
any member who has not spoken to the 
original question, at any time before the ques- 
tion is fully put, but it cannot be moved in 
committee, and discu.ssion must be kept 
strictly to the question of adjournment. In 
case of grave disorder arising, the Speaker 
may if he thinks it necessary adjourn the 
House without question put, or suspend any 
sitting for a time 10 be named by him. 

Admiralty, First Lord of the. Is 

Chief of the Commissioners, appointed to 
discharge the office of Lord High Admiral. 
He is the political head of the Navy, and it 
is through him that the Cabinet exerci.ses 
control over it. 

Air, Secretary of State for. 

Has the general control and direction of 
the Air Force. 

Aliens are incapable of voting for the 
election of members of Parliament, neither 
can they take their seats as members for any 
constituency. 

Amendment, An. Isthemodeby which 

the decision of the Hou.se on a question may 
be intercepted, by submitting for its con- 
sideration an alternative proposition, either 
wholly or partially opposed to the original 
question. 

ArroRNEY-GENERAL, The, is the chief 

legal adviser of the Crown ; he institutes 
informations and prosecutions for the Crown 
in matters criminal, and suits for anything 
concerning the King in inheritance or profit. 

Auditor. [See Election Auditor.] 

Ayes. Members voting in favour of a 
motion. 

Ballot, The. [See Election of Mem- 
bers.] 
Bankrupt Members are by statute 

rendered incapable of sitting and voting. At 
the expiration of six monins after a mem- 
ber has become a bankrupt, his election is 
void, and a writ will issue for the election of 
another representative, unless in the mean- 
time the bankruptcy has been annulled. 

Bills, Private. [See Private Bills.] 
Bills, Public. In the House of Lords 

the consent of the House is not lequirec! to 
the introduction of a bill ; in the Commons 
a bill can be brought in either by prescnta- 
tion (under the 1903 rule) or by motion ami 
leave. Proposals for bills relating to tax- 
ation, and the grant of public money must 
be moved in a committee of the whole 
House, having received the previous recom- 
mendation 01 the Crown. After the first 



* On occasion Acts have been pa.ssed making this temporarily unnecessar>-, and in igig an 
Act was passed abolishing the necessity for re-election in respect of appoiotmcnts made within 
nine months of any proclamation summoning a new Parliament. 



XXXVl 



TECHNICAL PARLIAMENTARY EXPRESSIONS. 



reading a day is appointed for the second 

reading, previously to which the bill is 
printed, and each member supplied with a 
copy. Discussion of the principles of a bill 
may be held on any of its stages, except in 
committee and on the stage of consideration 
as amended in committee ; but the most 
usual period for this discussion is the second 
reading. After being read a second time 
the bill, except in the case of a bill im- 
posing taxes, or a consolidated fund or 
appropriation bill, stands committed to one 
of the six Standing Committees, unless the 
House otherwise order. Bills so excepted 
go to a committee of the whole House. 
When the details of the bill have been 
considered in Committee, and the bill has 
been debated clause by clause, the chair- 
man of the committee reports it to the 
House. This he does by stating to the 
Speaker that " the committee has gone 
through the bill," and has either "made 
amendments thereunto" or "directed him 
to report the same without amendment." 
If no amendment has been made, the bill 
is ordered to be read a third time either 
forthwith or on a future day ; but if the 
committee have altered it the bill is ordered 
to be considered as amended. If the amend- 
ments are considerable, it is customary to 
reprint the bill. On the consideration of a 
bill as amended, amendments may be made 
or new clauses (of which notice has been 
given) may be added, such as could have 
been proposed in Committee. A bill may 
also be committed to a Select Committee 
after second reading, but must in that case, 
after it has passed the Select Committee, be 
recommitted to a Committee of the whole 
House. On the third reading the judgment 
of the House is expressed upon the entire 
bill, and only verbal amendments can at this 
stage be made. During the progress of the 
bill the House may divide on the following 
questions : i.st, on the motion for leave of 
introduction (unless the Bill is presented 
under the IQ02 rule) ; 2nd, on the second 
reading ; 3rd, on a motion to commit the 
bill to a Committee other than a .Standing 
Committee, that the bill be recommitted ; 
4th, that it be read a third time. These are 
exclusive of the divisions that may be taken 
on amendments proposed to be made to the 
bill in committee, or on its consideration 
as amended. After the passing of a bill, 
the Clerk of the House takes it to the bar 
of the House of Lords, and hands it to the 
Clerk of Parliaments, signed and endorsed 
in Norman French. In the Upper House it 
passes through similar forms to those of the 
Commons. If the Lords agree with the Com- 
mons in the principle of a measure, but differ 
on matters of detail, the bill is returned to 
the Commons, bearing the amendments the 
Lords propose : these are considered by the 
Lower House, and if disagreed to, the bill 
is returned back to the Lords with a mes- 
sage assigning reasons for the disagreement. 
A Public Bill, other than a Money Bill, as 
defined by the Parliament Act, 191 1 (see 
Money Bill), having been passed by the House 
of Commons in three successive sessions, and 
having been sent up to the House of Lords 
one month before the end of the session, if 
rejected by the House of Lords in each of 
those sessions, can then be presented direct to 
His Majesty for the Royal Assent, provided 
that two years have elapsed between the date 
of second reading in the first session of the Bill 



in the House of Commons, and the date at 
which it passes there in the third session. A 
Bill is considered rejected by the House of 
Lords unless it is passed by that chamber, 
either without amendment or only with 
amendments agreed to by both Houses. 
Differences between the Houses weje for- 
merly settled by a conference, but this 
practice has now become obsolete. Acts of 
amnesty are read only once in each House. 
Bills that have passed both Houses remain 
with the Lords, except those of supply, 
which are sent back to the Commons, to be 
by the Speaker presented at the bar of the 
Lords lor the Royal assent. 

Board of Agriculture and 

Fisheries, The President of. Is head 
of the Government Department controlling 
matters dealing with lands, animals, rivers, 
and the sea, as well as the Ordnance Survey. 
This department, founded in 1889 as to 
agriculture, was extended to cover fisheries 
in 1903. 

Board of Education, President 

OF. Has control of this Government De- 
partment of Education for England and 
Wales, and supervises the distribution of 
the Government grants towards elementary, 
secondary, technical. University, and all 
other forms of public education ; the de- 
partment has a large inspection and exami- 
nation staff. 

Board of Trade, The. Considers all 

matters especially relating to trade and 
commercial relations. It consists of a Presi- 
dent and several high officers of State, 
though it is practically managed by a Presi- 
dent and Parliamentary Secretary. It has 
the general superintendence of all matters 
relating to merchant ships and seamen, and 
exercises a supervision over harbours, elec- 
tric lighting, the administration of the Law 
of Bankruptcy, the registration of Joint 
Stock Companies, etc., while it also exercises 
financial control over the principal lighthouse 
authorities. It collects and publishes sta- 
tistics of the revenue, trade, commerce, 
wealth, population, etc., of the United 
Kingdom and its dependencies, as well as of 
foreign countries. 

Bribery. Both the giver and the 

receiver of a bribe can be put into the wit- 
ness-box and be compelled to answer any 
questions, however they might criminate 
themselves. The giver must say to whom 
he gave, and what he gave, and where he 
procured the cash. The receiver must say 
what he received, and from whom he received 
it. Any person who gives or receives a bribe 
is disfranchised for life, and his name is to be 
printed at the foot of every succeeding re- 
gister of voters for that place in a distinct 
list, headed "disqualified for bribery, treat- 
ing, or undue influence." A candidate 
personally guilty of bribery is incompetent 
to sit in a Parliament for seven years. He is 
liable to an indictment for misdemeanour, and 
to be punished with fine and in:prisonment. 
He is incompetent to vote at any Parliamen- 
tary or municipal election ; he cannot hold any 
municipal or judicial office ; and, if a magis- 
trate, is to be removed from the commission 
of the peace The offences of " bribery," 
"treating," and "undue and corrupt in- 
fluence" are defined by statute law, especially 
by the Corrupt, etc.. Practices Prevention Act,

WHITE AUSTRALIA FOR 

ORANGE GROWERS 




TBKSE FIVE-YEAR SEEDLESS ORANGES ON MURRAY RiVi^n. 



>.ASES PER TREE. 



AUSTRALIA, the all-white, all- British Dominion under the starry Southern Cross, washed by 
the sunlit dancing seas. A wonderfully rica, fertile island-continent, enjoyed by only five and a 
quarter millions of British-Australians, but under present Government plans likely to see by the 
next generatian an expansion to twenty millions. 

NO COUNTRT has a healthier or more highly productive climate, or presents so equal an oppor- 
tunity to the young for material advancement and abiding happiness. 

' To the man of moderate means seeking an open air life in afo ideal climate, the surest ineome 
is won from the soil, preferably within the Government irrigation areas on Small Holdings for dairying, 
fruit-grOMong, pig and sheep farming, chicken raising. 

ORANGE GROVES IN BL03S0M OR FRDIT ALL THE TEAR ROUND.— The Best Money- 
Maker of all is the Ug rei seedleis orange. To the man of brains, energy, and capital, its money prizes 
are big, and it throws in health and joyousness for good measure. 

AUSTRALIA ALONG HER HURRAY VALLEY U the best endowed by Nature of all orange- 
growing countries for economical, abundant, and quality production. And she has the Market 

advantage of the Reverse Season over 
California, Italy, and Spain. 

"RIVERSIDE, THE ORANGE- 
GROVES WHERE THE RED 
GUMS GROW."— In 1914-15-16, 
the Riverside Orange Groves Co. 
planted over 300 acres on their 4,000 
acre Freehold Estate (formerly a fine 
old sheep farm) on the River Murray, 
N'ictori.i, .\ustralia, 300 miles north 
of Melbourne, and convenient by 
river or road to railway towns. 

In 1921 the Government of 
Victoria bought from them. 250 acres 
of this for Bohlier settlement, and 18 
soldier orange growers arc now in 
possession. 

In 1922-23, the Company will be 
planting and selling orange groves 
THE OLD SHEEP FARM. for (losscssion in four-five years when 

bearing, or lor iiosscssion when planted. Or, selling orange land ready for planting. 

SBLUMQ BOGS AND CREAM WHILE THE ORANGES GROW.— In some cases, small dairy, 
pig, sheep, or poultrj' fanns will Ix sold combin«i with or.inge or lemon growing. The land is cleared 
and improved. The Government Irrigation channels, with ample water, are already on the land, and

1 88 J. The maximum scale of expenditure 
duniig an election now is in the case of a 
County ^d. for each elector on the Register, 
and 5^. in the case of a Borough (with modifi- 
cation for joint candidates). Expenditure 
above this scale is an illegal practice, punish- 
able by fine, and by electoral and parliamen- 
tary disability. Payment by candidates for 
conveyance of voters is prohibited. Penalties 
for corrupt practices have lately been in- 
creased ; and the intervention of the Public 
Prosecutor at election trials is prescribed. 

Budget, The. Is the financial state- 
ment laid annually by the Chancellor of the 
Exchetjuerbefore Parliament of the estimated 
public income and expenditure of the follow- 
ing or current financial year. In it he 
mentions what taxes it is proposed to re- 
peal, to reduce, or augment, and what new 
ones are to be imposed. In his_ speech 
on this occasion the Chancellor reviews the 
financial condition of the country, comparing 
the income and expenditure of the previous 
year with those of preceding years, justifying 
the changes that are proposed to be made, 
and estimating their probable effects. 

Burgess. Is a person whose name 
appears upon the Burgess Roll of Boroughs. 

Burgess Roll. Is a list kept in each 

municipal borough of the burgesses of the 
borough. 

Cabinet, The. A Committee formed 
out of the Privy Council, which acts as the 

. comiecting link between the Crown and Par- 
liament. It is formed of the highest officers 
of State, and always includes the First 
Lord of the Treasury, the Lord Chancellor, 
the Lord President of the Council, the Lord 
Privy Seal, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, 
the Secretaries of State (except for Air», and 
the First Lord of the " Admiralty. It also 
includes members, selected from the follow- 
ing functionaries at the discretion of the 
Premier :— Commissioner of Works and 
Buildings, Chancellor of the Duchy of Lan- 
caster, President o( the Board of Trade, Post- 
mastet-C.encral, .Secretary of State for Air, 
Secretar>- for Scotland, Chief Secretary for 
Ireland, President of the \jxa\ Government 
Board, President of the Board of Education, 
President of the Board of Agriculture, and 
Attomey-Ocneral. Thememlxrrsareall Privy 
Councillors, and being more immediately 
responsible for the conduct of public affairs, 
their deliberations are always considered 
confidential, and kept secret, even from 
their colleagues who are not in the Cabinet, 
nuring the latter part of the War, and for 
some time .ifterwards, the Cabinet was re- 
presented by a smalt War Cabinet. It 
now has a Secretary, and minutes pf its 
proceedings are kept but not published. 
iSee Ministry.] 

Call, The, of the Houses. Under 

the former practice of both Houses when' 
urgent business was anticipated, days were 
appointed, when the names of the members 
were called over, and those who were not 
then present were subject to_ cen.sure^ or 
punishment from the House. This practice, 
nowevcr. has fallen into disuse. 

Candidate's Deposit. C^ffi ; for- 
feited if votes polled do not exceed \ of total 
poll in constituency ; repaid to an elected 



Member when he has taken the oath as 
Member. 

Candidate's Expenses. [See under 

Bribery.] 

Chairman of Committee of Ways 

AND Means is elected by the House at the 
beginning of each Parliament. He pre- 
sides when the House is in Committee, and 
sits at the table in the seat of the Clerk of 
the House. His vote is never given in 
committee, except when, on a division, the 
numbers are equal. In the absence of the 
Speaker, he or the Deputy Chairman pre- 
sides as Deputy Speaker, but only_ holds 
that office from day to day. He is also 
charged with a general superintendence 
over Private Bill Legislation. A Deputy 
Chairman is now also elected for each Par- 
liament. 

Chancellor of the Duchy of 

Lancaster. Is a Minister appointed (by 
surrender of the seal into his keeping) to 
manage the Duchy of Lancaster estates ; 
he appoints magistrates for the County 
Palatine of Lancashire, and performs duties 
for Lancashire similar to those performed by 
the Lord Chancellor for the rest of England. 

Chancellor of the Exchequer, 

The. Is the principal Finance Minister of 
the Crown, and exerci.ses the chief and most 
responsible control over the expenditure of 
different branches of the public revenue, the 
details of which are annually submitted for 
revision. [See Budget.] 

Chancellor, The Lord. Is created 

by the will of the Sovereign, by the act of 
delivering the Great Seal into his custody ; 
he holds office during the pleasure of the 
Crown, but practically resigns office with his 
party. He is Speaker of the House of Lords, 
and by virtue of his office a Member of the 
Privy Council. He issues writs for sum- 
moning Parliament, and transacts all business 
connected with the custody of the Great Seal. 
He is principal adviser to the Crown in 
matters of law, President of the Supreme 
Court of Judicature, and head of the profes- 
sion of the law. He appoints the judges of 
the High Court, and the judges of county 
courts, inserts the names of justices in the 
commissions of the peace, and is patron of all 
Crown livings rated under Cio per annum. 
He is visitor in right of the Crown of all 
hospitals and colleges of Royal foundation, 
has the general guardianship of ail infants, 
idiots, and lunatics : and exercises a special 
jurisdiction in questions relating to charities, 
and trust estates. He ranks above all Dukes 
not of the blood royal, and next below the 
Archbishop of Canterbury ; _ is customarily 
created a Peer, but presides over the 
Hou.sc of Lords whether so created or not. 
During absence abroad on official business 
the office is put into commission.

Chiltern Hundreds. The three 

Hundreds of Stoke, Desborough, and Burn- 
ham, comprise the southernmost part of the 
Chiltern Hills, a ranee of chalky hills tra- 
versing the county of Bucks, between Tring, 
in Hertfordshire, and Goring, in Warwick- 
shire. The office of " The Steward of the 
Chiltein Hundreds" is supposed to have 



xl 



TECHNICAL PARLIAMENTARY EXPRESSIONS. 



been established for the purpose of sup- 
pressing bands of depredators who in former 
times infested the forests with which the 
sides of these hills were covered, and it has 
been retained to enable members of the 
House of Commons to resign their seats 
by accepting office under the Crown. The 
duties and the remuneration of this office are 
nominal. The appointment is vested in the 
Chancellor of the Exchequer. The Steward- 
ships of the Manors of Northstead and 
Hempholme are analogous offices. Writs 
for re-election to seats thus vacated cannot 
be issued during recess. 

Clerk of the House of Commons. 

Is appointed by letters patent ; performs the 
office of president during the election of the 
Speaker ; sits at the upper end of the table, * 
with two assistants ; is responsible for the 
record of the proceedings of the House ; signs 
all its orders, endorses bills sent to the House 
of Lords, and reads aloud such documents as 
the House may require. The appointment of 
the Clerks in the service of the House, other 
than Clerks at the table, is vested in this officer. 

Clerk of the Parliaments occu- 
pies an analogous position in the House of 
Lords to the Clerk of the House of Commons. 

Closure of the Debate can, by 

Standing Order, be obtained upon the motion 
of any Member, unless the Speaker or the 
Chairman of Committees withholds his assent. 

Colonies, Secretary of State for 

THE. Has under his control matters con- 
nected with the government of our extensive 
colonial possessions. 

Committals. The House of Commons 

has the power to repress any aggression com- 
mitted upon its privileges, and it can order 
into custody any person so offending. Such 
imprisonment, however, expires at the end of 
the session. 

Committee of Public Accounts, 

The. Examines the accounts .showing the 
appropriation of sums granted annually by 
Parliament to meet the public expenditure. 
It consists of not less than eleven members 
(the more usual number being fifteen), who 
are nominated at the commencement of 
each session. 

Committee on Public Petitions, 

Th e. Reports throughout the session a classi- 
fied list of the petitions presented to the 
House, and scrutmises them for the purpose 
of seeing whether or not they are in order. 

Committees, Standing. There are 

now six of these, each consisting of 40 to 60 
members with 10 to 15 "specialists" added, 
appointed by the House of Commons pur- 
suant to Standing Order, to which all bills 
stand committed after second reading, unless 
the House otherwise order, except Finance, 
Consolidated Fund or Appropriation Bills. 
Members to serve on these Committees are 
nominated by the Committee of Selection. 

Committees. Those of the whole 

House are generally for the purpose of con- 
sidering resolutions, or the details of a bill, 
or for financial purposes, such as those for 
"Supply" or "Ways and Means." Select 
Committees are for .specific purposes, and the 
numbers composing them, as a rule, consist 
of fifteen members. Presence of strangers is 
generally permitted by Commons Committees 
while witnesses are under examination, but 



not while the Committee deliberates. Mem- 
bers are entitled to be present throughout 
Committee sittings, unless the House other- 
wise order, or unless it be a Secret Com- 
mittee. The consideration of private-bills is 
referred to Committees consisting of four 
members. Under Standing Order, Select 
Committees can sit during the sitting of 
the House, except while the House is at 
prayers. When the House goes into Com- 
mittee, the Speaker vacates the chair, the 
mace is placed under the table, and the 
Chairman of Ways and Means, or in his 
absence the Deputy Chairman or another 
member, is called on to preside. 

Conference, A. Is the meeting of a 

delegated number of Peers and of members 
of the Commons' House to communicate a 
written message upon matters in which it is 
desirable that the two Houses should co- 
operate. At a " free conference " the subject 
of the written message may be taken into 
debate. Conferences of the old kind are 
now obsolete, having been practically super- 
seded by informal negotiations between lead- 
ing members of the two Houses. 

Controverted Elections. The trial 

of election petitions is regulated by a sta- 
tute which transfers the entire jurisdiction 
to the Courts of Law. A petition complain- 
ing of an undue election must be presented 
within 21 days after the return of the writ, 
unless it questions the return on an allegation 
of corrupt practices, etc.. in which case it 
may be presented at any time within 28 days 
after the day of payment. Thus the practice 
of promising at the election and paying after 
the time had elapsed for the presentation of a 
petition is met by permission being given to 
petition between 28 days after the payment 
of the bribe, whensoever made. At the time 
of presentation of a petition, or within three 
days after, security for ;£i,ooo is to be given 
by those who present it for payment of all 
costs, charges, and expenses that may become 
payable by the petition. < ' 

Count-out. If a member takes notice 

of the number present, the Speaker counts 
the House, and if forty members be not pre- 
sent, the Speaker adjourns the House without 
question put, till next sitting-day. Under 
the existing Standing Orders of the House 
cannot be counted out between 8.15 and 
g.15 o'clock p.m. [See No House.] 

Courts of Revision. [See Registra- 
tion of Voters and Revising Barrister.] 
Demise of the Crown. Since the 

Reform Act of 1867 the Demise of the 
Crown does not necessitate a Dissolution, 
but if at the time of the Sovereign's death 
Parliament happens to be adjourned or 
prorogued it must meet immediately. If, 
however, there is no Parliament in existence 
at the moment, the old Parliament a^ain 
meets, and may serve for six months. Smce 
1901 the holding of any office under the 
Crown, whether within or without the 
British Dominions, is not affected by 
the Demise of the Crown. 

Deputy Chairman, The. Presides 

in the absence of the Chairman of W^ays 
and Means, when the House is in Com- 
mittee, and may act as temporary Deputy 
Speaker in the absence of both the Speaker 
and the Chairman of Ways and Means.

Chairman.] 

Disfranchise. Is the act of taking 

away the privilege of the franchise. 

Disqualified to Vote. Peers of 

the Realm (but not Peeresses); peisons 
whose names do not appear upon the Register 
of Voters ; men under twenty-one years of age

mind ; those convicted of bribery or perjury, 
etc.). 

Dissolution. Is the civil death of 

the Parliament, and may be effected at plea- 
sure by the Crown, or by length of time 
(five years). [Up to 191 1 the maximum 
length of a Parliament was seven years.] 
It puts an end to the representative character 
of the members, and a new Parliament cannot 
be assembled until after a general election. 

Division, A. Is the mode of taking 
the votes of each House of Parliament. In 
the Commons, if the opinion of the Speaker 
or Chairman as to the decision of a question 
is challenged, he directs that the lobbies be 
cleared. After two minutes he puts the 
question again, and, if his opinion is still 
challenged, he nominates tellers, and directs 
the "ayes" and the "noes" to go into the 
right and left lobbies. Whilst members pass 
through the lobbies, clerks record the names 
of tho.se present and the tellers count the 
numbers. The tellers then return to the 
House, and their report of the numbers is 
finally announced from the Chair. 

Double Election. A member re- 
turned by two constituencies must within 
seven days after the expiration of the time 
limited for the presentation of petitions against 
the returns, elect for which he will serve.

Speaker's direction withdraw below the 
bar ; nor can they vote till the return has 
been adjudicated upon.

those Orders upon which no action is taken 
or directions given by the Member in charge. 
They drop from the Order Paper accord- 
ingly, but may be subseviuently revived. 
Bills or Orders standing upon the order 
paper which are not reached, owing to an 
adjournment of the House, are set down 
on the paper for the next sitting-day. In 
default of directions from a Member in 
charge of a Bill on the Order paper it is 
dropped, but may be subsequently revived. 
Dual Vo ri ng. A l a General Election 
a person with the requisite qualifications 
ma^ vote in two (but not more) constitu 
encies. 

Election Auditor. Is an officer 

appointed annually, whose duty it is to take 
and publish an account of all expenses in- 
curred at elections. Any payment made in 
respect of an election otherwise than thminrh 
this official is declared to be illegal. [See 
Returning Officer's Expenses.] 



Election of Members of Parlia- 

MENT. Writs for the election of Members, 
on occasioi) of a New Parliament, are issued 
by the Lord Chancellor, acting upon warrant 
from the King in Council, and, during a 
Parliament, upon the Speaker's warraint, is- 
sued by order of the House when the House 
is sitting and under statutory provisions 
when the House is not sitting. At a (Jeneral 
Election all nominations take place on one 
day, and all pollings at a later date, but also 
all on one day. 'I'he returning officer must 
give public notice of the tim<! and place of 
the election ; the nomination must be on the 
eighth day after the Proclamation calling 
the new Parliament, and the polling (if any) 
must be on the ninth day after the nomi- 
nation. Candidates must be nominated in 
writing. If at the expiration of one hour 
after the time appointed for the election, no 
more candidates are nominated than there 
are vacancies to fill, the officer declares 
those candidates elected, and returns their 
names to the Clerk of the Crown in Chancer^-. 
But if the candidates nominated exceed tlie 
vacancies, the officer adjourns the election, 
and takes the poll, by ballot papers, accord- 
ing to a prescribed form. The officer at the 
close of the poll opens the liallot boxes and 
counts the papers, and returns the names of 
those who have the majority to the Clerk of 
the Crown, as elected candidates. In a con- 
tested election, polling-stations are provided, 
with compartments to enable voters to mark 
their votes, screened from observation. Each 
of these is presided over by officers appointed 
by the returning officer. The polling is 
commenced and carried on simultaneously at 
all the stations. The returning officer is to 
give public notice "as soon as possible" of 
the names of the elected candidates, and of 
the total number of votes given fo» each can- 
didate. [See " Polling."] The officer then 
returns the writ, with the name or names 
of the person or persons elected endorsed 
thereon, "To the Clerk of the Crown in 
Chancery," to whom also all the documents 
relating to the election are delivered. Im- 
mediately after a public notice of election, an 
elected candidate is considered to be a 
member of Parliament, but cannot act as a 
legislator until he has taken the oaths. 

Election Petitions. [See Contro- 
verted Elections.] 

Eleven O'Clock Rule. [See Time 

of Meeting.] 

Estates of the Realm. The three 

estates of the realm are the three br.»nches 
of the legislature — the Lords Spfritiial, the 
Ix)rds Temporal, and the Commons. The 
Sovereign, Ix)rds, and Commons, in their 
united character, exercise none but legisla- 
tive functions; they form the Parliament, and 
subject to the provi.sions of the Parliament 
.\ct (iQi I), no bill can l>ecome law unless all 
concur in it. In addition, each has separate 
functions pcciiluir to itself. In the .Sovereign 
the whole executive authority is vested. The 
House of Ixjrdsexercises judicial authority as 
a court of ultimate --tppeal. and is a tribunal 
to which great officer* of .State, impeached by 
the Lower House, are amenable. The House 
of f>mmons is endowed with the sole control 
of the national expenditure, and with the levy 
of taxation to provide for that expenditure.

Executive. [See Ministry, and also 
Cabinet.] 

Expulsion of Members, is a power 

possessed by the House of Commons. It has 
been exercised from time to time to free 
Parliament from the presence of discreditable 
members, suck as men found guilty of forgery, 
perjury, etc., or as a punishment for offences 
committed against the House. 

"Father of the House of Com- 
mons." An informal distinction bestowed 
upon the Member who has sat in Parliament 
for the longest unbroken period of time, 
irrespective of the Constituencies for which 
he may have been returned. 

Finance. The financial concerns of 

the State devolve upon the Chancellor of the 
Exchequer. 

First Lord of the Treasury. Is 

Chief of the Commissioners appointed to 
execute the office of Lord High Treasurer, 
but as such takes no great part in the 
management of the Treasury. He has 
several Civil Service appointments in his 
gift, and nominates to Crown livings and 
Civil List pensions. This is the position 
usually, though not always, taken by the 
Prime Minister or the Leader of the House 
of Commons. 

Foreign Affairs, Secretary of 

State for. Has the exclusive charge of 
the interests of the British Empire and 
British subjects in foreign countries. He 
negotiates all treaties, leagues, and alliances 
with foreign states, either directly with the 
Foreign Minister at this Court, or through 
the British Ambassador abroad ; and is the 
official organ and responsible adviser to the 
Crown in all communications between his 
Government and foreign powers. 

Franchise. In law, is defined as 

"a Royal privilege, or a branch of the 
Sovereign's prerogative subsisting in the 
hands of a subject." As applied to Parlia- 
ment the term means the right to vote at an 
election for a member of Parliament. Under 
the Representation of the People Act (igi8) 
the franchise extends to all men of full age 
(not subject to legal incapacity), and having 
the requisite residential or business premises 
qualification (six months) ; women on attain- 
ing the age of thirty and being entitled to be 
registered as Local Government Electors or 
whose husbands are so entitled ; and those 
employed on war service on attaining the 
age of nineteen (i.e. naval and military em- 
ployment. Red Cross work, etc., merchant 
seamen, pilots, and fishermen). University 
Franchise demands for men in England and 
Wales receipt of a degree (not honorary), 
while women must have fulfilled certain 
conditions. 

Freemen. Are persons who have been 
admitted to the freedom of a corporate town, 
or of any other corporate body. 

Friday Sittings. The House meets 

every Friday (up to 1902 it used to be 
Wednesday) at twelve o'clock. Friday until 
Whitsuntide is set apart for the bills brought 
in by private members, and the Housej unless 
previously adjourned, continues to sit until 
the business of the day is disposed of, or until 
5.30 p.m. (no opposed busine.ss being taken 
after five). On the disposal of business, or at 
5.30, the Speaker adjourns the House without 
putting any question, and the business under 



I discussion, or undisposed of, stands among 
I the orders of the day for the next sitting of 
I the House. 

General Election. [See Election 

of Members.] 

Government Business. Unless the 

House otherwise direct, Government busi- 
ness has precedence at every sitting except 
after 8.15 p.m. on Tuesday and Wednesday 
and at the sitting on Friday; after 8.15 
p.m. on Tuesday and Wednesday notices of 
motions and public bills, other than Govern- 
ment bills, have precedence of Government 
business ; after Easter, Government business 
has precedence during the whole of the 
Tuesday sittings ; after Whitsuntide, Govern- 
ment business has precedence at all sittings, 
I except on the third and fourth Fridays 
after Whit Sunday. 

! Government Orders, are the bills 

I. brought in by the Government and other 

' Government business appointed by the 

House, which are entitled to be placed 

at the head of the list at sittings when 

Government business has precedence. 

' Health, Ministry of. This new 

I Ministry has, among other acti^-ities, ab- 
I sorbed the functions of the Local Govem- 
I ment Board.

1 Home Department, Secretary of 

State for. The duties and responsibilities 
of this high officer comprehend the main- 
I tenance of the internal peace of the United 
I Kingdom, the security of the laws, and the 
general supervision of matters relating to the 
administration of criminal justice. 

! House of Commons. According to 

' the theory of the English constitution, the 
] House of Commons represents the whole 
population, and it is unconstitutional tu sup- 
pose that members are delegates of any 
I special community. Each member is held 
to represent the interests of the nation. The 
proceedings of the Commons are regulated 
1 by standing orders, which are the per- 
I manent bye-laws of the House, by sessional 
orders renewed annually, and by the custom 
i of Parliament, as embodied in rules and regu- 
' lations established by usa^e, or laid down in 
j the journals. The following is an outline of 
I parliamentarj- practice :— A motion for the 
• grant of public money may not be presently 
I entered upon, but must be put to the vote 
on a future day in a Committee of the whole 
House, having received the previous recom- 
mendation of the Crown. Notice, as a rule, 
must be given of every motion, and, except 
in committee, it must be seconded. There 
must never be more than one question before 
the House at the same time. However many 
amendments may be proposed upon a motion, 
each one is separately disposed of. If there 
be a majority for any words standing part of 
a question to be put to the House, then a vote 
is taken on the question with these words 
in it. In case of the rejection of everj- 
amendment, then the original proposal, what- 
ever it may be, motion or bill, is put to the 
vote, stripped of all the counter proposals 
which the debate has called forth. No mem- 
ber can thus be driven to vote for what he 
does not approve ; for after having voted in 
favor of such amendments as he may propose 
to the original question, he can vote against 
it in the end. No motion or bill may be

oflTered upon which a judgment has been 
expressed during the current session ; a 
resolution may, however, be rescinded, or an 
order of the House discharged. A bill that 
has passed both Houses contains all the 
sentences and words composing the Act of 
Parliament to which the koyal Assent is 
given. When a member speaks, it must be 
to some question before the House, or to 
introduce a question. The mover of a 
substantive motion is permitted a reply, 
and those who have spoken to the original 
question may speak again when an amend- 
ment or a new question, such as the adjourn- 
ment of the debate has been proposed : 
but otherwise no one is entitled to more 
than one opportunity of speaking on a 
question, except when the House is m Com- 
mittee. No member may call another by his 
name ; if it is desired to call personal atten- 
tion to him, he must be referred to by his con- 
stituency, or by the office which he holds. 
Any member may interrupt another by 
" rising to order," 7°.;., calling the attention 
of the chair to the fact that a breach of order 
was then being committed. It is supposed to 
be out of order for a member to refer to debates 
in the House of Lords of the current Session. 
No bill is converted into law unless it has 
^subject to the provisions of the Parliament 
.\ct 1911) received the duly expressed ap- 
proval of both Houses and has received the 
Royal Assent. Public bills for imposing taxes 
or charges begin with the Commons. Bills 
for restitution of honours and in blood (which 
are, however, very rare) begin in the Peers. 
A member who moves the adjournment of 
a debate is by courtesy entitled to speak 
first when the debate is resumed. But this 
rule does not apply to the renewal of debate 
in a Committee of the whole House. For 
the sake of convenience, certain parties — 
ministerial, opposition, or otherwise — group 
themselves on benches which they appropriate 
to themselves. When several members rise 
to address the Hou.se. the Speaker or Chair- 
man signifies who shall have precedence ; this 
is known as " catching the Speaker's eye." 
Reference to the opinions of the Sovereign 
to influence a decision of the House is 
ii regular. Forty is the quorum of the 
Commons. [See Bills, Public] 

HousB OF Lords. The House of 

Lords consists of all Royal anri other peers 
(not being minors, of unsound mind, or 
bankrupt) who hold hereditary peerages of 
England, of Great Britain, and of the Onited 
Kingdom, all Life Peers, the .\rchbishops 
of Canterbury and York ; the Hishops of 
London, Durham, and Winchester ; twenty- 
one other bishops (exclusive of the Bishop 
of Sodor and Man, who has neither seat nor 
vole) according to .seniority of consecration ; 
any eldest sons of peers specially summoned 
in their father's lifetime ; and sixteen Scotch 
(elected for duration of one Parliament only), 
and twenty-eight Irish (elected for life) repre- 
sentative peers. When the Roll of the Ixirds 
is called over in the House on the occa.sion 
of any public ceremony, it commences with 
the junior baron. [See Bills, Public] 

Houses of Parliamknt. The old 

Houses of Parliament were burned in Octo- 
ber, 1834, ^^^ ■' ^'^^ 'I'^t until February 36lh, 
1840, that the 6rst stone of the new edifice 
was laid. Sir Charles Barry being the archi- 
tect. The building did nol proceed very 
rapidly, for though the House of Lords was 



used in 1847, it was not until 1853 that the 
Houses were formally opened by Queen 
Victoria. Even then the Royal or Victoria 
lower, at the south-west angle, was not 
finished. This is the highest toivtr in the 
world ; there are spires that are higher, but 
no towers It is 75 ft. square and 345 ft. 
high. The tower at Mechlin, which is half 
.spire and half tower, and the next highest, 
is only 348 ft. to the top of the vane, while 
to the top of the vane of the Victoria Tower 
is 420 -upwards of 60 ft. higher than the top 
of the cross of St. Paul's. This majestic 
tower could only be raised at the rate of 
30 ft. per annum, it being necessary to let 
the work settle, so that it was not finished 
till 1857. The whole block of buildings, 
which forms the largest Gothic edifice in the 
world, covers an area of about nine acres, 
and presents a continuous frontage of nearly 
1000 ft. to the river ; the Victoria and Clock 
Towers being respectively at the southern 
and northern extremities. Seen from the 
river there is a centre part with towers, two 
wings, and a tower at each end. The exterior 
is formed of magnesian limestone from An.ston 
in Yorkshire, and the interior of C.ien stone, 
while the building is rendered fireproof by 
having all the beams and girders made of 
iron, and the arches between the floors of 
brick. Facing the building towards the 
river, the House of Lords is in the ri^ht, 
the House of Commons in the left wing. 
Between them is the Central Hall, which is 
reached from the principal public en- 
trances through St. Stephen's Hall, and 
in which are statues of Hampden, Falk- 
land, Clarendon, Selden, Somers, Sir Robert 
Walpole, Lord Mansfield, I>ord Chatham, 
Pitt, Fox, Burke, and Grattaii. The walls 
of the corridors leading from the two Houses 
of Parliament to this hall are covered with 
celebrated fresco paintings by Cope, Ward, 
and others, of historical subjects, such as 
"The Departure of the Pilgrim Fathers," 
"The Last Sleep of Argyll," etc. The 
House of Lords is nearly 100 ft. long by 
45 ft. wide and 45 ft. high. "The length 
extends from south to north, and it is lighted 
by six windows at each side, and the ceiling, 
which is horizontal 'not arched), is divided 
by libs, carved and gilt, into eighteen com- 
partments, each of which is again subdivided 
into five panels bearing heraldic devices on 
an azure ground. At each extremity of the 
chamber, and at a distance of about 30 ft. 
from the ground, which is the level of the 
windows, are three compartments filled with 
fre.sco paintings. There are also 18 niches 
between the windows and at each end of 
the House, containing statues of the Magna 
Charta barons. The Reporters' Gallery, 
and that for Strange:*, are at the north end 
of the House, while opposite to them, at 
the south end, is the Tnrone. Galleries for 
peeresses are at each side. /I'he Royal 
Gallery, 110 ft. lon^ by 45 ft. wide, contains 
the two famous pictures, 4J by la ft. each, 
representing the meeting of Wellington and 
Hlucher, and the death of Nelson respec- 
tively. The "Woolsack," on vhich the Lord 
Chancellor sits as Speaker, is 'n from of the 
Throne and in the body of the Hou^, and 
its origin is supposed to signify the import- 
ance of W(X>1 to the national prosperity, when 
the export of that commodity was forbidden 
in the reign of Qtieen Eliz.-«belh ; on each 
fide of i( are five rows of seats covereu with 
red morocco leather, the upper seals being

reached by narrow stairs. The " Bar" is 
at the north end, opposite the Throne and 
the " Woolsack." Beyond the House of 
Lords to the south are the Peers' Robing 
Room and the King's Robing Room. At 
llie opening of Parliament all peeresses and 
the eldest sons of peers are entitled to seats 
in the House of Lords to view the ceremony. 
The House of Commons is, like the House 
of Lords, 45 ft. broad by 45 ft. high, but it 
is only 60 ft. long, space being economised 
as much as possible for acoustic reasons. 
The Speaker's Chair is at the north end of 
the chamber, and at the opposite or south 
end are the Strangers' Gallery and the 
gallery for Distinguished Visitors. At each 
side are galleries (containing two rows of 
seats) for the use of Members of the House. 
The Reporters' Gallery is at the north end, 
and the Ladies' Gallery is above it. The 
Clerk's Table is before the Speaker's Chair, 
with the Speaker's mace resting at its southern 
end. The leading Members of the party 
that is in office sit on the front row of seats 
by the side of this table, and on the right 
hand of the Speaker. Facing them on the 
front row at his left are the leaders of the 
Opposition party. The division lobbies are 
on the east and west sides of the House, and 
the " Bar " is at the south side, facing the 
Speaker. The Clock Tower, containing 
" Big Ben," is at the northern end of the 
building. It is 40 ft. square, and, with the 
belfry and spire, about 320 ft. high.

which exercises the powers of the Crown, in 
accord with Parliament, and more especially

House of Commons, is authorized by the 
Sovereign to form a Ministry, the members 
of which he selects from those favourable to 
his policy, he himself being the Prime Minis- 
ter, and taking commonly, though not always, 
the office of First Lord of the Treasury. 
Ministers who are not Peers should be 
members of the House of Commons. The 
Ministry exercises supreme authority, and 
includes the executive, the legislative, and 
the judicial powers of the Crown, and in it 
for the time being the whole of the governing 
power of the Sovereign is vested. [See 
Cabinet and Seals of Office.] 

Money Bills. The right of granting 
Aids and Supplies is in the Commons alone 
as an essential part of their Constitution, and 
the House of Commons has in its own hands 
the power to impose and remit Taxes and 
to frame Bills of Stipply. If a Money Bill, 
as defined by the Parliament Act(i9ii), is 
not passed by the House of Lords without 
amendment one month after it is sent up (at 
least one month before the end of a session i 
to that House, it may be presented direct to 
His Majesty for the Royal Assent. With 
the Speaker rests the decision whether a Bill 
is a Money Bill as so defined or not. 

Motion, A. The offer of a substantive 
proposition for adoption by the House, such 
as a motion for leave to bring in a bill, or of 
a resolution expressive of an abstract opinion.

upon notice taken, it appears that forty mem- 
bers are not present ; but when the Commons

Commissioners, to attend at the bar of the 
House of Lords, any number of membeis 
constitutes a House. [See Count-out.]

^^K an intended motion must as a rule appear on 

^^H the business paper of the House on the day 

^^H when it is to be moved. The period after 

^^H 8.15 p.m. on Tuesday and Wednesday is 

^^H appointed for the consideration of notices of 



motions before the bills set down for tho^ 
sittings. The order in which notices of 
motions stand is determined by a ballot. 

Oaths of Members. New members 

may take and subscribe the oath at any time 
during the sitting of the House, before the 
orders of the day and notices of motions have 
been entered upon, or after they have been 
disposed of, but no debate nor business may 
be interrupted for that purpose.

The King being seated on his Throne, 
the Lord bearing the Cap of Mainten- 
ance stands on the Steps of the Throne 
on the right, and the Peer bearing the 
Sword of State on the left. The Great 
Officers of State are grouped as follows :— 
The Lord Chancellor, the Lord President, 
and the Earl Marshal stand on the right, 
and the Lord Privy Seal on the left, of His 
Majesty ; the Lord Great Chamberlain 
stands on the Steps of the Throne on the 
left hand of the Sovereign, to receive the 
Royal Commands. The Lord Steward and 
the other officers of the Household arrange 
themselves on each side of the Steps of the 
Throne, in the rear of the Great Officers of 
State. When His Majesty retires, the Pro- 
cession returns to the Robing Room, where 
His Majesty unrobes. The Cap of Main- 
tenance is borne only from the Robing Room 
toand Irom the House, and when the Imperial 
Crown is not worn by the King, it is carried 
before His Majesty by the Peer appointed to 
carry it, who takes his place on the right hand 
of the Throne, next to the Earl Marshal. The 
old State Chair occupied by the Sovereign 
on these occasions was designed by Augustus 
Welby Pugin, the eminent architect, who 
was employed in the designing, erection, 
and decoration of the Houses of Parliament ; 
it has been in the House of Lords since the 
completion of that Chamber, and was used 
by Queen Victoria when she opened or 
prorogued Parliament in person. The State 
Chair provided for the Queen Consort is an 
exact replica of the old, but an inch and a half 
lower. The frame is mahogany elaborately 
carved, but the wood is nowhere visible, being 
entirely covered with a rich gilding of 
English leaf-gold ; the legs rest upon four 
lions couchant, and the back is surmounted by 
a lion and a luiicorn holding scrolls, while in 
the centre is a representation of the Imperial 
Crown. In the middle of the back are the 
quarterings of the Royal Arms of England, 
embroidered with gold-coloured silk on 
crimson velvet, with a surrounding border 
studded with pieces of rock crj'Stal. The 
cushion to the seat is also of crimson velvet 
richly embroidered with the white Tudor 
rose and leafage. There is also an oblong 
gilded footstool to match.

House. 

Parliament. Is the name of the su- 
preme legislature of the United Kingdom. 
It was first used in the reign of Henry III. 
[See Estates of the Realm.] 

Parliament Act. The main pro- 
visions of the Parliament Act igii (i & 2 
George V. c. 13) are : (1) If the Lords with- 
hold their assent to a money bill for more 
than one month after the bdl has reached 
them, the bill may be presented for the 
King's assent, and, on that assent being 
given, will become law without the consent 
of the Lords. The Act gives a definition of 
a " money bill," and it is for the Speaker 
of the House of Commons to certify that a 
bill falls within the definition. Before giving 
his certificate he is to consult two Members 



of the House of Commons for that purpose. 
(2) If a bill other than a money bill is passed 
by the Commons in three successive Sessions, 
whether of the same Parliament or not, it 
may, on a third rejection by the Lords, bs 
presented for the King's assent, and, on that 
assent being given, will become law. But 
two years must elapse between the date of 
the second reading in the first of those 
Sessions and the date at which the bill 
parses the Commons a third time. Pro- 
vision is made against the identity of a bill 
being destroyed by the introduction of 
amendments made necessary by lapse of 
time or agreed to by both Houses. (3) Five 
years was substituted for seven years as the 
maximum duration of a Parliament. [This 
period was specially extended on several 
occasions during the War.] 

Parliamentary Agent. Is a .pro- 
fessional gentleman who acts as Solicitor in 
promoting private bills. 

Parliamentary Secretary to the 

Treasury. Also known as the Patronage 
Secretary to the Treasury. [See below.] 

Patronage Secretary to the

Electors of the Parish of , shrtveth 

that, etc., and a private individual must set 
forth his name and occupation thus. — The 
Humble Petition of Thomas Charles Burd, 
coal merchant , shetueth that, etc. Following 
this must be mentioned the grievance for 
which relief is desired, and the whole must 
conclude with a specific prayer, as, IVhere- 
fore your Petitioners humbly pray that your 
Honorable House tinll be pleased to, etc. 
Here must follow particulars of the special 
relief that is asked for, the concluding 
sentence being. And your petitioners, as 
in duty bound, tvill ei'er prajr. If the 
prayer be omitted, the petition is returned 
to the Member who presented it, as the 
House will not attend to a mere statement 
of grievances. Immediately following the 
prayer must be written the signatures, one 
of which, at least, must be written on the 
same skin of parchment, or sheet of paper, as 
the petition. All signatures or marks must 
be original, procuration not being in any 
case allowed, except in cases of incapacity by 
sickness, for either a single individual or any 
body of persons, but the common seal of a 
corporation is acknowledged as a petition of 
the whole corporate body. Every petition 
must be ■written upon paper or parchment, 
be free from erasures or interlineation, and 
written in the English language, or accom- 
panied by a literal translation which the 
member presenting it certifies to be correct ; 
but no letters, affidavits, or other documents 
will be received. Only those signatures are 
reckoned as valid which are written on sheets 
headed in every case by the prayer of the 
petition ; but on every sheet after the first 
the prayer may be reproduced in print, or by 
other mechanical process. Petitions are re- 
jected which contain intemperate language, 
or imputations upon the character or conduct 
of either House of Parliament, the Courts of 
Justice, or other constituted authorities. 
Reference is not allowed to be made to any 
debates, or to matters therein referred to, 
but petitions may refer to motions of which 
due notice has been given : while petitions 
praying for a grant of public money, or 
charge upon the revenues of India, or for 
the remission of taxes or dues, are not 
received except on the recommendation of 
the Crown. Every member presenting a 
petition must affix his name at the beginning 
thereof, and is presumed to know that the 
standing TCf^ulations respecting petitions have 
been complied with. No debate is allowed 
when petitions are laid upon the table, and 
they stand referred to the Committee on 
Public Petitions, without any question being 
put ; but if the petition relate to a subject 
with respect to which the member present- 
ing it has given notice of a motion, and 
the petition has not been ordered to be 
printed by the Committee, such member may, 
after notice given, move that such pe- 
tition be printed with the votes. Petitions 
■■der two pounds in weight may be forwarded 
by post, free of charge, to any member of 
«ither House, in parcels open at each end, and 
tnarked outside " Parliamentary Petitions." 
In virtue of an ancient privilege, the Sheriffs 
of Loadon and the Lord Mayor of Dublin 
may appear at the Bar of the House of 
Commons to present petitions in person, 
but may not spesik.

the Council. 

Pot-Wallopers. A term formerly 

applied to voters in certain boroughs, where 
all who boil a pot were entitled to vote. 
.Another name was *° potwallers," which is 
said by some to h.ive been a mistake for pot 
boilers, "b" having been mistaken for " w." 

Previous Question, The. Is a mode 

of attempting to avoid a direct expression of 
opinion upon a motion. It is effected in 
the House of Lords by proposing, in lieu of 
the original motion, a motion "that the 
original question be now put." A vote is 
taken on this, and if necatived the original 
motion is practically rejected ; although the 
motion might be proposed again at a subse- 
quent sitting. I n the Commons the method of 
procedure is reversed, and the form adopted 
is " that the question be not now put." 

Prime Minister, The. Is the head 

of His Majesty's Government, is the con- 
necting link between the Crown and the 
Cabinet, selects his colleagues in the Minis- 
try, and is virtually responsible for the 
entire patronage of the Crown. His official 
position is usu.illy that of First Lord of the 
Treasury. His precedence was formally 
recognized Dec 1905 as next after the Arch- 
bishop of York. The official country resi- 
dence is Chequers, Princes Kisborough, 
Bucks, which was presented to the nation by 
I,ord and Lady Lee of Fareham, Oct. i9ao. 

Private BIL1.S. Are those intro<luce<l 
by companies or individuals for the purpose 
of enabline them to undertake works of 
utility at their own risk, and for their own 
benefit, or for procuring naturalization, 
change of name, etc. Private bills aue 
brought in upon petitions signed by the 
suitors or their agents. The fees payable for 
promoting or opposing a private bill are slated 
in the Standing Orders. (See Bills. Public.) 

Privilege, A Question ok, is 

founded on a matter directly concerning the 
privileges of the House. If it has recently 
arisen, and calls for its immediate inter- 
position, such a matter may be considered 
without notice, and takes precedence of all 
other business. 

Privileges of Me.mbers. Every 

member is entitled to freedom of speech, to 
freedom from arrest and distress of Eoail% 
and to exemption from service on JudMir

Procedure. [See House of Com- 
mons.] 
Proportional Representation. Is 

only applied to University constituencies 
returning more than one member (i.e. to 
II seats). 

Prorogation of Parliament. Is an 

interruption of its sitting by Royal authority. 
The Crown may, notwithstanding the proro- 
gation, summon Parliament for the despatch 
of business, by giving six days' notice bj' pro- 
clamation. Parliament is never prorogued 
for more than 80 days at one time, but this 
period can be extended by subsequent pro- 
clamation. Every bill and other proceeding, 
save impeachments, must be renewed after a 
prorogation. 

Proxy Voting. Voting by proxy is 

allowed in the case of naval and military 
voters in distant parts, fishermen, pilots, etc. 

Public Bills. [See Bills, Public] 

Question, A. When a motion has 
been moved and seconded, the Speaker pro- 
poses to the House the question for their 
decision. Questions (restricted to three per 
diem by any one Member) may be asked 
Members of the Government at the com- 
mencement of the business each day. 

Redistribution of Seats. The 

Representation of the People Act (1918) 
provided for a Redistribution of Seats and 
an increase in the number of Members, from 
670 to 707. 

Registration Officer. Each regis- 
tration area has a Registration Officer 
whose duty it is to prepare the Spring and 
Autumn registers. His fees are paid half 
by Parliament and half from the rates, and 
he is also Acting Returning Officer. 

Registration of Voters. Two 

Registers are prepared each year : the Spring 
Register for the qualifying period ending 
Jan. 15th comes intoforce on April 15th, and 
the Autumn Register for the qualifying 
period ending June 15th takes effect on 
Oct. 15th. 

Reporting. A gallery is set apart for 
the exclusive use of newspaper reporters, and 
official reports are also made of the par- 
liamentary proceedings. 

Representation of the People 

Act (191S). This extended the Franchise 
to women who have reached the age of 
thirty, and to men on war service, adding 
more than 13,000,000 voters to the Register. 

Resignation of Seats. [See Vacat- 
ing Seats.] 
Returning Officer's Expenses. 

The charges of the returning officer are paid 
by the Treasury, which prescribes a maxi- 
mum scale. 

Royal Assent, The. The Royal 

Assent to bills that have passed the Houses 
of Parliament has not been withheld since 
the year 1707. It is given either by the 
Sovereign in person, or by Commissioners 
appointed for that special purpose. The 
Commissioners are usually three or four of 



the high officers of State. As soon as the 
Royal Assent has been given, the Bill imme- 
diately becomes an Act, having the effect 
and force of law. 

Scot and Lot. Parish payments. 
When persons were taxed not to the same 
amount, but according to their ability, they 
were said to pay " scot and lot." 

Scotland, The Secretary for. 

Has the control of all matters connected with 
Scotland. 

Seals of Office. When a change 

of Government takes place two Councils are 
held, at the first of which the various offices 
are given up, and the Ministers appointed 
under seal thereupon hand back their seals 
to the Sovereign ; at the second the succes- 
sors in office kiss hands on appointment and 
take over the relinquished seals. Secretaries 
of State (except for Air) are appointed under 
patent, so that in their case there are no seals 
to give up. On a reconstruction of a Ministrj' 
one Council only is usually necessarj-. 

Selection, The Committee of. 

Nominates the members on, and arranges the 
sitting and business of private-bill committees, 
and is also charged with the nomination of 
the Standing Committees. 

Senior Me.mber, The. Is the mem- 
ber returned at the head of the poll, not the 
member who has served the constituency the 
longest time. 

Serjeant-at-Arms, The. Is an offi- 
cer appointed by patent under the Great Seal, 
attached to the House^ who is styled " the 
Serjeant-at-Arms attending the Speaker of the 
House of Commons." He is assisted by a 
deputy and several subordinates, and is also 
Housekeeper of the House of Commons. 
During the sitting of the House he occupies 
a chair below the bar, and to him is delegated 
the maintenance of order in the approaches 
to the House and the adjoining offices. His 
duties are performed under the directions of 
the House, communicated to him by the 
Speaker. He apprehends and retains in 
custody all persons committed by order of 
the House. 

Session. The Session of Parliament 

continues from the time of its meeting until 
it is either prorogued or dissolved. The 
House of Commons limits to one year the 
duration of the Army Annual Act, and votes 
the supplies for the public service by grants 
limited to the current year. The Crown is 
therefore compelled to resort to an annual 
assemblage of Parliament, which usually 
takes.place early in February. Six days at 
least, but generally thirty or forty days, 
previous to the intended meeting, a procla- 
mation is issued by the Crown, commanding 
the attendance of both Houses for despatch 
of business, usually at Westminster, but it 
may be at anyplace within the United King- 
dom. The busine.ss usually transacted at the 
commencement of every Session is to consider 
the Speech from the Throne. One Bill, how- 
ever, always receives a first reading, in order 
to assert the right of Parliament to protect 
the interests of the people before considering 
the subjects contained in the Royal Speech. 
No number or length of adjournments de- 
stroys the continuity of the Session. [See 
also Prorogation.] 



TECHNICAL PARLIAMENTARY EXPRESSIONS. 



Sessional Orders are agreed to at the 

commencement of each S>ession, and are not 
intended to continue beyond that period. 
Sittings. On Monday, Tuesday, 

Wednesday, and Thursday the House usually 
sits from 2.45 to 11 p.m.; or, for non- 
contentious business until 11.30 p.m. There 
is, as a rule, no sitting on Saturday, and on 
Friday (when the House meets at 12) the 
adjournment takes place not later than 
5.30 o'clock. 

SOIT FAITCOMME II. EST DESIR^. The 
words in which the Royal A.s.sent is given to 
Private Bills. 

Solicitor-General. Is the legal ad- 
viser of the Crown, who ranks next to the 
Attorney-General. 

Speaker OF THE House of Co.mmons. 

Is the representative of its powers, authority, 
and dignity. His chief duties are to pre- 
side over the deliberations of the House, 
to put the question, and declare the deter- 
mination of the House. In the conduct of 
the debates, the .Speaker calls on those mem- 
bers to address the House who, in his opinion, 
are entitled to precedence ; he promptly and 
decisively represses disorder, and gives effect 
to the rules and regulations of the House. 
When he rises to enforce a point of order, 
the House is immediately silent ; and his 
decision, based as far as possible on prece- 
dent, is, as a rule, accepted without cavil. But 
still the ultimate authority, upon all points, 
is the Hou.se itself. He also presents to the 
Sovereign addresses from the Commons, when 
they are ordered to be presented to the whole 
Hou.se ; reprimands persons who have incurred 
the displeasure of the House ; issues warrants 
of committal for breach of privilege ; com- 
municates with any parties, when so instructed 
by the House ; exercises a general control 
over the business of the House, both public 
and private ; expresses the thanks or appro- 
bation of the Commons to distinguished per- 
sonages; adjourns the House if forty members 
are not present, and appoints I'ellers on a 
division. Under the Standing Orders, the 
Speaker may withhold his assent to a motion 
for the closure of a debate ; he may, after 
continued irrelevance on the part of a mem- 
ber, direct him to discontinue his speech, 
or if a motion for adjournment be, in his 
opinion, an abuse of the forms of the House, 
the Speaker may forthwith put the question 
thereon. He has, however, to select the 
amendments to be moved to bills or 
motions. The Speaker may also direct a 
Member, whose conduct is grossly disorderly, 
to withdraw during the remainder of that 
day's .sitting. He docs not speak, except 
in his official capacity ; nor does he vote 
except to give a ca.sting vote when the 
numbers are equal. It is to him a Member 
addresses his remarks, and it is irregular for 
a Member to direct his remarks to the Hou.se 
or to any Member of the House. With the 
Speaker rests the decision whether a bill is or 
is not a Money Hill within the meaning of the 
Parliament Act (191 1), and he nominates 
the Members of the House of Commons 
to serve on the Ecclesiastical Committee 
under the Church of England As-sembly 
(Powers) Act, 1919. He is elected at the 
commencement of each Parliament (the Clerk 
of the House presiding at the election), and 
holds office until a dissolution. He gives state 



dinners to as many of the House as he can 
entertain, between the commencement of the 
Session and the Kaster holidays. He receives 
a salary of jC 5,000 a year, and has a furnished 
residence; is a member of the Privy Council, 
and ranks ne.\t after the Lord Prcs of the 
Council. It iscustomarj- for the Speaker, on 
retiring from office, to be created a peer, and 
to receive a pension of ;£4,oooayear. When 
incapacitated from attending to his duties, his 
place is occupied by the Chairman of Ways 
and Means or the' Deputy Chairman if the 
Chairman be absent. 

" Speaker's Eye." [See House of 

Commons.] 
Speeches may not lie read in the House 
by members without special permission. 

Standing Committees. [See Com- 

miKees.] 

Standing Orders. Are for the per- 
manent guidance and order of proceedings. 
They have been agreed to at various times, 
and if not repealed endure in force from one 
Parliament to another. One of these orders 
has been in force since March yqth, 1707. 

Strangers, Admission of. Persons 

going to the offices of the House, on business, 
arc admitted at such offices at all times. 
Whtn the committees and Court of Appeal 
are not sitting, none but persons going to 
the offices of the House are admitted ; all 
others are stopped at the door of St. Stephen's 
Hall. When Committees and the House 
of Lords (as a Court of Appeal) are 
sitting, persons proceeding to them are 
permitted to enter the Committee Room.s, 
House of Lords, and offices pertaining 
thereto only. During the sitting of the 
House no visitor is admitted to the Central 
Hall, unless he wishes to see a memlier, or 
has a ticket of admission to one of the 
galleries. No persons, except those having 
such tickets of admi.ssion, are permitted to 
go beyond the central and lower waiting 
halls, nor to enter the dining, tea, and 
smoking rooms, nor to go on the terrace, 
even though accompanied by a member. 
The Members' Ixibby is strictly reserved for 
peers and members only, and for such per- 
manent officials, secretaries of Ministers, and 
others, whose names are placed by the 
Speaker on a special list. Parliametitary 
agents are admitted to the Members' Lobby 
till halfpast five o'clock p.m. None but 
ladies having their names on the list are 
permitted to enter the Ladies' Gallery Door, 
in the .Speaker's Yard. After four o'clock 
p.m. the subway under Bridge Street may 
be closed to all but members or persons 
going on business to the House. 'The fol- 
lowing rules are now in force for the admis- 
sion of strangers to the galleries of the 
House :— Orders in AtivaHce—{\) Orders 
for under the gallery, (he Special Gallery,

filled in before admission. During the 
sitting of the House — (a) Orders of admis- 
sion (except to the Ladies' Gallerj-) for the 
same day are issued after a quarter past four 
p.m. (a quarter past twelve p.m. on Fridays) 
from the Admission Order Office in St. 
Stephen's Hall, (b) Applicants for vacant 
seats in the Members' Gallery go direct to 
the Admission Order Office and obtain 
orders of admission, without applying to a 
member. An applicant may be required, 
however, to give a member's name as a 
reference, in case of necessity before being 
admitted, (c) Admission to the Special Gal- 
lery and under the gallery are only granted

Stranger."] 

Supply, Committee of. A Com- 
mittee of the whole House, which considers 
the Government resolutions for granting to 
the Crown the sums necesiiary for conducting 
the various branches of the public service. 
These resolutions, having been considered 
and agreed to by the House, receive effect by 
Consolidated Fimd Act.*, passed from time 
to time during the session, subject, at its 
close, to a final appropriation to the services 
of the year by the "Appropriation Bill," 
which, after it has passed the House of 
Lords, is carried by the Speaker to the bar 
of the Upper House to receive the Royal 
Assent. The business of Supply is the first 
order of the day on Thursday, unless other- 
wise ordered by the House. Not more 
than 20 days, being days before the 5th of 
.\ugust, are allotted for the consideration 
of the annual estimates for the Army, Navy, 
Air Force, and Civil Services, including 
votes on account. An additional 3 days 
either before or after 5th of August may be 
allotted for the business of Supply on motion 
made after notice by a Minister of the Crown. 

Suspension from the service of the 

House is a punishment imposed on members 
who have been named by the Speaker or the 
Chairman of Committees, for an infraction of 
the rules of the House of Commons. The 
effect of an amendment made in the Standing 
Orders in 1902 is that an Order of Suspen- 
sion made in pursuance of Standing Orders 
remains in force until the end of the Se,ssion. 
unless previously revoked. But suspension 
may be ordered otherwise than in pursuance 
of Standing Orders. 

Swearing In. The administration of 

the oath or affirmation to the members of the 
House of Commons at the beginning of a 
new Parliament is conducted in the fol- 
lowing manner :— The oath is administered, 
in the first instance, to such Members as are 
of His Majesty's Most Honourable Privy 
Council and to Members who have held office 
under the Crown, and then to such Members 
as may present themselves for that purpose 
at the table. The oath is administered to 
Members singly, and in order that the process 
of signing the roll and the introduction of 
Members to the Speaker may be conducted 
with due regularity, Members occupying 
various benches come to the table in an 
order prescribed by the Speaker. Members 
should not leave the table until they have 



signed the roll and have been introduced to 
Mr. Speaker. 

Teller. Is a member appointed by the 
Speaker when a division takes place, to count 
the number of members voting for or against 
a motion. Two are appointed for each side. 

" That I do now Leave the Chair."

occasions when it is needful, before the whole 
House goes into Committee. 

"That the .Orders of the Day be 

NOW Read." That the House proceed to 
the business of the day without further 
decision taking place on the motion then 
under discussion. 

"This Day Six (or Three) Months." 

The motion that a bill be read a second time 
upon this day six months, is the ordinarj- 
mode of moving its rejection. 

Time of Meeting. The House meets 

on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and 
Thursdays at a quarter to three o'clock, when 
the Chaplain reads prayers. The business 
of each sitting is conducted according to 
the following routine : — When private busi- 
ness has been disposed of — i.e., usually 
about three o'clock — the putting of questions 
to members of the Government begins, and 
continues until 3-45, after which questions of 
special public importance or relating to the 
arrangement of business may be asked. The 
real work of the day is then entered upon, 
and the regular business of the sitting is 
commenced, namely, the consideration of 
the orders or motions set down for thai day. 
The House continues business until half-past 
eleven o'clock unless previously adjourned, 
but only unopposed business is taken after 
eleven o'clock, unless what is called the 
" eleven o'clock rule " is su.spended. On 
Fridays the House meets at noon. 

Tre.\ting. [See Bribery.]

of these are attached to the office of each 
Secretary of State, oge being usually per- 
manent, and the other def)er.dent upon the

Britain. The first Parliament subsequent to 
the Union met Oct. 23rd, 1707. The Union 
of Great Britain and Ireland took place on 
January ist, 1801. 

Vacating Seats. By accepting an 

office of emolument from the Crown, a mem- 
ber at once vacates his seal. It is customary 
for a member who wishes to resign to 
apply for the sinecure Stewardship of His 
Majesty's Chiltern Hundred.s, or of the 
Manor of Northstead (for seats thus vacated 
no re-election can take place during recess).

CONSTITUTION OF THE HOUSE OF COMMONS, ETC. 



CONSTITUTION OF THE HOUSE OF COMMONS. 

At the timeof the Union with Scotland, in 1707, the House consisted of 513 members ; 45 were then 
added for Scotland, and in 1801, 100 were added for Ireland, making the total of 658. This number 
was preserved by the Reform Acts of 1832 and 1868, but in each case the apportionment was altered 
and in 1885 it nominally stood — England and Wales 493, Scotland 60, and Ireland 105, but by the 
disfranchisement of Beverley (2), Bridgwater (2), Cashel (i), and Sligo (i), the total representation 
was reduced to 652 members. The result of the Redistribution of Seats Act 1885 was to increase 
the total number of members elected for counties, boroughs and universities to 670, and the 
Representation of the People Act (1918) raised the total to 707, the basis being one Member for 
every 70,000 of population in Great Britain, and one for every 43,000 in Ireland, but to be 
reduced by the Government of Ireland Act (1920) to 648.* Distribution is as follows : —

* The Government of Ireland Act 1920 stipulates for the eventual reduction of the number 
of Irish Representatives to sit in the United Kingdom Parliament as follows : Counties 34, 
Boroughs 8, Universities 4, total 46, in place of 105, and on the establishment of the Irish Free 
State this number will be further reduced by the omission of the 33 seats allocated to Southern 
Ireland.

The 
HOUSE of PEARS 

Family pride with us is a very real thing. 
One hundred and thirty years ago, 
Andrew Pears began the manufacture of 
Pears' Transparent Soap in a very small 
way, and, although mass production in great 
modern factories has taken the place of the 
little back room where our soap first saw 
the light, his descendants are just as careful 
of their reputation, standing as it does 
shoulder-high amongst the traders of the 
world, as was their ancestor of his amongst 
the merchants of London City. 

Nowdays Transparent soap is not our 
only occupation. In fact Pears' Golden 
Series comprises everything that man or 
woman could possibly want for their toilet, 
from sticks of opaque shaving soap to books 
of powder-leaves. Your chemist or your 
stores will show all these things to you, and 
we know you will agree that the plain gold 
containers are the daintiest ornaments for 
your dressing table, while, when you use 
them, you will find that their contents are 
fully worthy of our House.
