National Coal Board (Reconstitution) (2 Jul 1951)

Mr Brendan Bracken: We should wish for an opportunity of discussing these appointments, with the latest Report of the Coal Board. It will be within the recollection of the right hon. Gentleman that the former Leader of the House promised a day so that an opportunity could be given to the House to discuss the Coal Board's affairs, and I very much hope that it will be provided in the present Session, because the...

Slaughter of Animals (Amendment) Bill: Gas Undertakings (Scotland) Bill (22 Jun 1951)

Mr Brendan Bracken: I know. The hon. Lady must remember that the whole argument put forward was that the gas units were too small and that centralisation was necessary. That was what the present Chancellor of the Exchequer constantly said upstairs. Has he changed his mind? The hon. Lady should read his speeches.

Church of England Measures (21 Jun 1951)

Mr Brendan Bracken: I should like, for a start, to tell the hon. Member for Gravesend (Sir R. Acland) that there is no party controversy in this matter. We all know the appalling problems created by clerical poverty, and we all know that the children of parsons—

Church of England Measures (21 Jun 1951)

Mr Brendan Bracken: I cannot agree with the remarks made by my hon. Friend the Member for Wolverhampton, South-West (Mr. Powell). To suggest that at the present time the holding of long-term Government securities is a wise matter is to my mind silly. We are living in art age of inflation.

Orders of the Day — Coal Industry Bill (18 Jun 1951)

Mr Brendan Bracken: We have stated our objections to this Bill. There is no virtue in repetition.

We are not going to take up the time of the House by repeating our arguments or encouraging verbosity.

New Clause. — (Aggregation of Property for Purposes of Death Duties.) (18 Jun 1951)

Mr Brendan Bracken: My right hon. Friend the Member for Aldershot (Mr. Lyttelton) is engaged in important public business elsewhere. If he were here, he would join with me in expressing sorrow for the learned Attorney-General—and, let me say by way of digression, that there ought to be a Bill introduced into this House, and it would have the approbation of all parties, to prevent cruelty to Attorneys-General,...
