Oral Answers to Questions — British Army: Home Guard (16 Feb 1943)

Orders of the Day — Civil Defence (Detainees) (10 Feb 1943)

Mr Tom Driberg: I intervene with some diffidence because I had no idea that this matter was coming up to-day. I therefore have not with me the documents with which I could substantiate what I want to say. I simply do not want it to go out from here that any substantial portion of this House or of the community at large is seriously perturbed about the administration of 18B. Those of us who support the Home...

Orders of the Day — Civil Defence (Detainees) (10 Feb 1943)

Mr Tom Driberg: We are talking about whether they got protection, and I, am saying that I do agree that it must have been an extremely unpleasant situation for them during the blitz, but again I must remind hon. Members that the main part of them were people who would probably have gladly led the Nazi authors of the blitz in triumph into this City of London. We have heard harrowing comparisons between...

Orders of the Day — Civil Defence (Detainees) (10 Feb 1943)

Mr Tom Driberg: Not at all. I can substantiate it by reference to their views. I do not say that all these people were guilty of actual treason to the extent of selling information to the enemy, or something of that sort, but they are people of specifically Nazi and Fascist sympathies, and, therefore, I am entitled to say that they would probably have led the Nazi authors of the blitz in triumph into this...

Orders of the Day — Civil Defence (Detainees) (10 Feb 1943)

Mr Tom Driberg: Is the hon. Member suggesting that they have purged their offences by the passage of time, because if so, I cannot say that I entirely agree?

Orders of the Day — Civil Defence (Detainees) (10 Feb 1943)

Mr Tom Driberg: Again, with all respect to the honourable and distinguished records in the last war of these detainees, I submit that that is quite irrelevant, because people who served with honour in the last war may well have gone wrong afterwards in one way or another. If we are talking about the records of people, Sir Barry Domvile gave distinguished service in the last war, no doubt, but in the period...

Orders of the Day — Civil Defence (Detainees) (10 Feb 1943)

Mr Tom Driberg: Would the hon. Member say the same of the learned judge, to whose comments on the hon. and gallant Member for Peebles and Southern (Captain Ramsay) I referred?

Orders of the Day — Civil Defence (Detainees) (10 Feb 1943)

Mr Tom Driberg: What is the position of editors vis-à-vis the ban on letters to the Press, because obviously it is perfectly easy for a detainee to write a letter to an editor known to him personally and to send it to the editor's private address, or for that matter for a Member of Parliament to hand a letter to an editor?

Oral Answers to Questions — Civil Defence: Proposed Public Meeting, London (4 Feb 1943)

Mr Tom Driberg: asked the Home Secretary whether he is aware that an organisation which advocates peace by negotiation with Hitler and distributes pro-Nazi, anti-parliamentary and anti-Semitic propaganda, is proposing to hold a public meeting at a London theatre in the near future; and whether he will take steps to prevent the holding of such a meeting as likely to provoke a breach of the peace?

Oral Answers to Questions — Civil Defence: Proposed Public Meeting, London (4 Feb 1943)

Mr Tom Driberg: Will the right hon. Gentleman bear in mind that only last night there was a deplorable exhibition of hooliganism at Finsbury, where the memorial of Lenin was broken up and tarred and placarded with Fascist slogans?
