Speech to Rump Parliament, 1653
Oliver Cromwell

05
Speech on House of Commons Reform, 1784
Edmund Burke

Propolis ointment website (in Japanese)

Speech on The West Ham Guardians , 1927
Arabella Susan Lawrence
Etext

This is not totally wrong, I suppose--it points to the Hansard home page.
But why not point to the speech itself at

?

15
Speech on the outbreak of war with Germany, 1939
Arthur Neville Chamberlain
Etext, as above, could link better to
