Middle East (25 Oct 1973)

Mr Tom Driberg: Was it necessary for the right hon. Gentleman to wait until Dr. Kissinger has held a Press conference later this afternoon before trying to ascertain the significance of the so-called low-level alert?

Business of the House (5 Apr 1973)

Mr Tom Driberg: Will the Leader of the House reconsider the date he has announced for resumption after the Recess? Does he realise that it is one day before the national day of protest, and that it is very likely that no trains will be running and that probably most of the catering staff of the House will not be coming to work?

Member for Banbury (Mr....

Mr Tom Driberg: One of the five men in prison is a constituent of mine. I saw him in prison on Saturday.

Industrial Situation (24 Jul 1972)

Mr Tom Driberg: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that some of us do not accept the Establishment myth that bad laws must be obeyed?

Schedule (18 Jul 1972)

Mr Tom Driberg: While I share the views of the hon. Member for Bristol, West (Mr. Robert Cooke) to some extent, I hope that I am not out of order in also expressing some regret that, so far as one can tell, construction of the British Library will mean the removal, the obliteration, of several of those small streets in Holborn area in which quite a number of people actually reside. The centre of London is...
