Malta (Constitution) (29 Jul 1964)

Mr Fenner Brockway: How does the right hon. Gentleman propose to deal with this matter? Will it be necessary for an Order in Council to be produced? Will it be necessary to have an amendment of the Order in Council which is already proposed? If so, will this House have an opportunity of expressing a judgment upon it?

Southern Rhodesia (29 Jul 1964)

Mr Fenner Brockway: I regret that the hon. Member for Barry (Mr. Gower) has not been present during the whole of the debate, though, of course, I accept the reason. The hon. Member has heard the greater part of the speeches by my hon. Friends the Member for Blackburn (Mrs. Castle) and the Member for Ebbw Vale (Mr. M. Foot), but, unfortunately, he did not hear the greater part of the speech of the hon. Member for...

Southern Rhodesia (29 Jul 1964)

Mr Fenner Brockway: I very much appreciate the correction of my grammar—it was only my grammar. When I speak about expulsion from the United Nations, I appreciate that Southern Rhodesia at present is not a member. An independent country would expect to become a member of the United Nations. I ought not to have said "expulsion"; I should have said "exclusion". I am grateful to the hon. Member. There would be...

Southern Rhodesia (29 Jul 1964)

Mr Fenner Brockway: The Minister has been very good in giving way to questioners. Will he deal with the point which I raised? We welcome the fact that the Government have made an approach to the Government of the Republic of South Africa about their prisoners as a result of the Commonwealth Conference discussion. If we can make an approach to a Government who are independent and sovereign, why cannot we make an...

Oral Answers to Questions — Malaysia and Indonesia (27 Jul 1964)

Mr Fenner Brockway: asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he will make a statement on the negotiations for a settlement of the dispute between Malaysia and Indonesia, through the medium of the Government of Thailand, in view of the relevance of these negotiations to British commitments in the area concerned.

Oral Answers to Questions — Malaysia and Indonesia (27 Jul 1964)

Mr Fenner Brockway: Whatever is the compelling military situation, is not the right hon. Gentleman as Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs concerned mostly with the political settlement which must come at some point? Is he aware that the Tunku, the Prime Minister of Malaya, has been in America and has seen officials at the United States, U Thant and the Afro-Asian group of the United Nations? Would he be...

Oral Answers to Questions — Laos (27 Jul 1964)

Mr Fenner Brockway: asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what conclusions were reached on the situation in Laos at the recent Vientiane Conference of Ambassadors of the United Kingdom, Canada, India, South Vietnam and Thailand.

Oral Answers to Questions — Laos (27 Jul 1964)

Mr Fenner Brockway: Can the right hon. Gentleman confirm that he has received this weekend a message from Mr. Khrushchev, as one of the Co-Chairmen, in which he indicated that he may withdraw from the Co-Chairmanship and urged that there should be a 14-Power Conference on this matter? When the right hon. Gentleman goes to Moscow, will he do his utmost to secure a resumption of the Geneva Conference, which alone...

Orders of the Day — Malta Independence Bill (23 Jul 1964)

Mr Fenner Brockway: Is it not a fact that under the provisions of the Bill the limitation on the rights about which the hon. Member speaks would not come into force until after three years and that the next elections in Malta would automatically be held next spring?

Orders of the Day — Malta Independence Bill: Clause 1. — (Fully Responsible Status of Malta.) (23 Jul 1964)

Mr Fenner Brockway: As I have listened to the right hon. Gentleman, I have become almost mesmerised by the soothing way in which he has spoken to us. He has been rather like a parent who has been speaking with great sorrow to his children who really do not quite understand. Under that influence, I have begun to wonder whether the situation which many of us have seen in Malta, and with which we are familiar as a...

Orders of the Day — Malta Independence Bill: Clause 1. — (Fully Responsible Status of Malta.) (23 Jul 1964)

Mr Fenner Brockway: There was an election in Zanzibar, but because the Constitution was imposed before that a revolution followed. I believe that a General Election before the imposition of this Constitution in Malta may save us from serious and grave consequences. As the hon. Member for Haltemprice said, the population in Malta is divided broadly in the ratio of 5 to 6. In that situation, with the intensity of...

Orders of the Day — Malta Independence Bill: Clause 1. — (Fully Responsible Status of Malta.) (23 Jul 1964)

Mr Fenner Brockway: I shall not quote it at this moment, but I should have thought that it was generally accepted—

Orders of the Day — Malta Independence Bill: Clause 1. — (Fully Responsible Status of Malta.) (23 Jul 1964)

Mr Fenner Brockway: —that the attitude of the hierarchy in Malta was that to support the Labour Party, to distribute the literature of the Labour Party, to vote for the Labour Party, to speak for the Labour Party, or to be an executive member of the Labour Party, was a sin.

Orders of the Day — Malta Independence Bill: Clause 1. — (Fully Responsible Status of Malta.) (23 Jul 1964)

Mr Fenner Brockway: There are some which are mortal sins and others which are not.

Orders of the Day — Malta Independence Bill: Clause 1. — (Fully Responsible Status of Malta.) (23 Jul 1964)

Mr Fenner Brockway: I am not going to press this strongly, because, frankly, I do not know very much about the difference between one kind of sin and another kind. They are all a sin, and some are a mortal sin. Because they are all regarded as sins in this way, inevitably in the situation which exists in Malta there is an intensification of feeling between the 5 and the 6 which may create a very dangerous...

Orders of the Day — Malta Independence Bill: Clause 1. — (Fully Responsible Status of Malta.) (23 Jul 1964)

Mr Fenner Brockway: Let me do that in my next sentence, Sir Robert. If these are to be the results of this Constitution and independence and of the agreement made, surely the people have a right to decide in a General Election whether they will accept it or not before it is imposed? That is my argument and I think it a very strong one. The Minister is imposing this and coming to an agreement with the Prime...

Orders of the Day — Malta Independence Bill: Clause 1. — (Fully Responsible Status of Malta.) (23 Jul 1964)

Mr Fenner Brockway: Surely the hon. Member is aware of cases in which there has been a General Election before independence because of a division of opinion and the fear of violence between the two sections resulting?
