Mr Tom Driberg: This is a Debate on a medical subject in which I think it has been quite right that a number of laymen should take part, because except perhaps for tuberculosis there is probably no disease which can less properly be considered in isolation from its social context than venereal disease. It is now about six weeks, I think, since I asked the Minister of Health a question with regard to a...

Emergency Powers (Defence): Venereal Disease (Compulsory Treatment) (15 Dec 1942)

Mr Tom Driberg: I am very glad if the hon. Member meant to pay a compliment, but I think he phrased the compliment equivocally. I quite agree with him that some other countries have undoubtedly tackled the subject of venereal disease more effectively than we have done so far. Reference has been made to Sweden. Some figures from Sweden were quoted, and some hon. Members showed a disposition to cast doubt upon...

Orders of the Day — King's Speech: Debate on the Address (19 Nov 1942)

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.
