Mr Tom Driberg: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that his implied rebuke to the objectionable opinions expressed in this article will be received with satisfaction by all supporters of the cause of the United Nations?
Mr Tom Driberg: asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, in order to save copper and in view of the number of common objects whose price has increased from 1d. to 1½d., he will consider issuing a 1½d. coin?
Mr Tom Driberg: Has the matter been considered recently, since the average price of a bus ticket went up to 1½d.?

Mr Tom Driberg: I wish to speak very briefly, as a member of the Church of England, in support of the Noble Lord. I think that the difficulty between the Noble Lord and the hon. and gallant Gentleman the Member for South-West Norfolk (Captain De Chair) can be resolved very simply in this way. We are surely fighting, broadly, for the system of beliefs and the way of life defined by President Roosevelt as the...
Mr Tom Driberg: I am quoting the exact words. Surely that is what freedom of conscience is in the Four Freedoms defined by President Roosevelt. Those of us who are Christians within the United Nations can perfectly well regard our war effort as a crusade, because, undoubtedly, the Axis, Nazi-ism and Fascism stand for something totally opposed to Christianity at its best. But I suggest we should hot attempt...

Mr Tom Driberg: asked the Prime Minister by whose authority, and for what reason an official attempt was made to prevent participation by Service contingents in the Soviet National Day celebrations at Empress Hall?

Mr Tom Driberg: asked the Minister of Health whether he will implement the recent announcement of a 70 per cent. increase in venereal diseases by a public educational campaign using all available propaganda methods?
Mr Tom Driberg: I do not know what the Lord Privy Seal meant exactly yesterday by his allusion to what may be called the three-legged race between Left and Right. To me some of his words seemed to have the calculated ambiguity of the 39 Articles; but whatever he meant; I hope that he was not preparing the way for a surrender by the Government to the powerful interests who are already trying to pre-judge and...

Mr Tom Driberg: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that this officer has effective charge of the health of 120,000 school children; and, whatever the shortage of doctors, is not the health of children of paramount importance?
