Orders of the Day — Clause 1. — (Sunday Opening of Exhibi- Tions and Gardens.) (7 Dec 1950)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: Whatever view we may take upon the merits of the Amendment, I think the House will agree that the hon. Baronet the Member for Gravesend (Sir R. Acland) made an extremely interesting constitutional suggestion when he laid before us the thesis that a minority of 25 per cent. should be allowed to visit this fun fair for a quarter of the time. A number of the Measures passed in the last five...

Orders of the Day — Clause 1. — (Sunday Opening of Exhibi- Tions and Gardens.) (7 Dec 1950)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: Whenever I need advice on anything concerning the devil, I shall refer to the hon. Member who is always so well informed on these matters. We took the view, on the contrary, that the battalions which were defeated were those allied to the force in question. What I am trying to argue is this. The House should not allow this thin wedge to be inserted after a decision made so emphatically a few...

Orders of the Day — Clause 1. — (Sunday Opening of Exhibi- Tions and Gardens.) (7 Dec 1950)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: When the Amendment was moved by my hon. Friend the Member for Farnham (Mr. Nicholson), another of my hon. Friends the Member for Aylesbury (Mr. Summers) felt that this was very much a border-line case, and I was inclined to agree with him. One of the later interventions of the Attorney-General has rather forced me to change my mind. I want to be quite certain now that I have got it right. My...

Orders of the Day — Clause 1. — (Sunday Opening of Exhibi- Tions and Gardens.) (7 Dec 1950)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: I hope that this Amendment will be accepted, but once again I rise to draw on the good temper—if it still exists, as I hope it does—and the knowledge of the Attorney-General. We have always to be careful in drafting an Act of Parliament. Are the words, "children's zoo" all right from the legal point of view?—[Laughter.] This is a perfectly serious question and I am sure that the hon....

Orders of the Day — Clause 1. — (Sunday Opening of Exhibi- Tions and Gardens.) (7 Dec 1950)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: Before this Bill leaves the House for another place, may I, as one who, like my hon. Friend, voted against the Second Reading, when we were concentrating our attention on the Sunday observance issue, say that I do not share his lugubrious opinion in regard to the Festival as a whole. I would not quarrel with him in what he has said about the world situation, but it is characteristic of the...

Clause 2. — (Payments into and Out of the Intra-European Payments Account.) (21 Nov 1950)

Lieut-Commander Joseph Braithwaite: When the Financial Secretary rose to reply, we on this side of the Committee had some qualms in noticing the change of bowling, because he is notorious for his constructive gestures and obstructive actions.
