Those seeking to relocate themselves across contested borders of class, race-caste, gender and nation require means of transportation, i.e., moral languages that are mutually comprehensible to the migrant, his adversaries and “neutral” observers. These languages must describe at least three spaces: the migrant’s origin, the destination and the migrant himself. In the process, a set of techniques must be developed and deployed that will show how morally successful the movement has been. Money is a critical part of

of the institution and partly to suggest ways to improve mental health in the population at large. Asylum numbers were understood to show the decisive role of certain causes of insanity, notably vicious or unwise behaviour in the form of alcohol consumption, masturbation, and heredity. Statistics and accounts Asylum reports distinguished between medical and administrative numbers. The former were denominated in numbers of persons, the latter most often in money terms.

years later, the new specialised Cancer Institute Jules Bordet combined four floors for the poor with three floors for paying patients (who occupied one-third of the beds). 78 Despite these changes the public healthcare system kept losing money.

8 New money, new ideas, new women W ithin the brewing industry, Margaret Thatcher’s Beer Orders, issued in 1989, acquired infamy for causing incalculable harm, fatally undermining the historic if controversial tied house system. When Lord Young, her Secretary of State for Trade and Industry, laid down that no brewery could own over two thousand tied houses, some national breweries reacted not by selling off the requisite number of pubs to comply with the fiat but by disposing of their entire tied estates (Courage) or all their breweries (Watneys).1 Morning

the concentration of rapid industrialisation in a few key areas, only to have this rejected. 43 Lewis’s last attempt to make a case to CEAC for the development of centres of industrialisation in the empire was a memorandum prepared with F. V. Meyer. ‘The Analysis of Secondary Industries’ stated that focused points of industrial development were the most efficient way to spend development money and most likely to provide an environment in which new factories might flourish.

Edward Hemmerde and Francis Neilson were both Liberal MPs at the outbreak of the First World War, bound together by a common commitment to the principle of land taxation. A shortage of money, at a time when MPs had only just started to receive salaries, led them into extra-parliamentary co-operation in the joint authorship of plays. But the two men fell out over the profits from their literary endeavours. One or other was clearly not telling the truth. Although he gave up his parliamentary career in opposition to British involvement in the war, Neilson later prospered greatly as a writer in the United States. Meanwhile, Hemmerde turned to his career as Recorder of Liverpool, but the wealth that he craved eluded him. This article reminds us that financial impropriety among MPs is no new phenomenon, while highlighting the difficulty of establishing certain historical truth in the face of conflicting documentary evidence.
