Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister and Foreign Secretary (Visit to U.S.a. and Canada) ( 5 Dec 1955)

Business of the House ( 1 Dec 1955)

Hydrogen Bomb Experiments (30 Nov 1955)

Mr Clement Attlee: (by Private Notice) asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the announcement that the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics is prepared to agree with Great Britain and the United States to cease further experimental explosions of the hydrogen bomb, he will approach these Governments with a view to achieving this objective.

Hydrogen Bomb Experiments (30 Nov 1955)

Mr Clement Attlee: As I understand that nothing which is not official is allowed to be said over the Moscow Radio, we are therefore entitled to take this statement as authoritative from the Government of the U.S.S.R. As there is still considerable doubt among scientists whether these explosions may not have very deleterious effects, should we not take any opportunity there is to try to halt these experiments?...

Hydrogen Bomb Experiments (30 Nov 1955)

Mr Clement Attlee: I thought we were all disturbed much more about the effects of the hydrogen explosions because it is suggested that they may have very long-term repercussions on the future of the human race. The fact that there was also some mention of atomic weapons surely does not prevent one from considering the matter of hydrogen bomb experiments and does not necessarily lead to the consideration of the...

Broadcasting (Anticipation of Parliamentary Debates) (30 Nov 1955)

Mr Clement Attlee: I desire to intervene for only a very short time in the debate. I am speaking for myself. This is a matter for the free vote of the House. I think that I have been connected with this subject for longer than anybody else in the House. Indeed, I have taken part in discussions ever since it was decided that there should be political broadcasting. I can remember the time when there was no...

Broadcasting (Anticipation of Parliamentary Debates) (30 Nov 1955)

Mr Clement Attlee: I quite understand that the hon. Member for East Aberdeenshire (Sir R. Boothby) objects. Perhaps I could include him as a responsible person.

Broadcasting (Anticipation of Parliamentary Debates) (30 Nov 1955)

Mr Clement Attlee: The Press has been dealt with very fully by the Postmaster-General. There is no comparison with the Press. The B.B.C. debate on a major matter which is before Parliament is a single occasion. The subject may be debated by one person or by three or four, but a number of views may be expressed in the Press. Despite the syndication of the Press, one has a certain variety. The more reputable...

Cyprus (Situation) (28 Nov 1955)

Mr Clement Attlee: I should like to associate hon. Members on this side of the House with the sympathy expressed by the Secretary of State with the relatives of those who have been killed and wounded in the attacks in Cyprus. May I ask the right hon. Gentleman to realise that there is a very great interest on both sides of the House about the steady deterioration of the position in Cyprus and of the need for...

Oral Answers to Questions — British Army: Home Guard (22 Nov 1955)

Mr Clement Attlee: The right hon. Gentleman says that it is a very complicated subject. One matter was mentioned by his hon. Friend the Member for Buckinghamshire, South (Mr. R. Bell), on which his Department has already spent four and a half years. Does the right hon. Gentleman think that this subject will take as long?

Business of the House (17 Nov 1955)

Business of the House (17 Nov 1955)

Mr Clement Attlee: It is obvious that the Government were caught napping on the Finance Bill. May I ask the right hon. Gentleman whether he has considered what an admirable chance has been offered to the Chancellor to show repentance in this matter? By mere chance, the Bill has fallen by the wayside. The Chancellor could take it away and, to quote the phrase once used by the right hon. Gentleman the Member for...

Business of the House (17 Nov 1955)

Mr Clement Attlee: Do I understand from the Lord Privy Seal that he arranged for my right hon. Friend the Member for Huyton (Mr. H. Wilson) to move that particular Motion?

Business of the House (17 Nov 1955)

Mr Clement Attlee: It is quite true that the consequences are well known today, but they do not appear to have been so well known last night. If they had been, the Government might have accepted the Motion to report Progress as the proper one.

Business of the House (17 Nov 1955)

Mr Clement Attlee: I am sure the right hon. Gentleman would not want to depart from a promise given to the House, that there would be a full debate on that Bill, which would not be so if it comes on late. Is there any reason why the procedural Motion could not be taken after the Housing Subsidies Bill?

Business of the House (17 Nov 1955)

Mr Clement Attlee: The right hon. Gentleman knowns from his long experience in the House that procedural Motions of this kind often do take a very long time. It is only fair that this very important Bill should be taken at a proper time of day.

Mr Clement Attlee: Can the Leader of the House say whether the Government will afford time for, or arrange, a debate on the Near Eastern situation?

Business of the House (17 Nov 1955)
