Mr Edgar Granville: May I ask one question in order to complete the picture of the responsibility of the Secretary of State? Will he tell us why it was found necessary that this deputation should visit Germany, and why it was necessary that the Archbishop of Canterbury and other dignitaries should make statements?

Orders of the Day — Cinematograph Film Production (Special Loans) Bill (2 Dec 1948)

Mr Edgar Granville: I agree with the hon. Member for West Fife (Mr. Gallacher) that in these discussions on the film industry we are apt to forget that it is the ordinary film-goer whose interests we are really discussing, though, in regard to this Bill, there may be losses and it may also be the case that we are discussing the taxpayers of the country. There is a tendency to forget that in these days of...

Mr Edgar Granville: Does that mean that if we are prepared to give them fair opportunities for showing their films in this country, they should give our films fair opportunities of being shown in America?

Oral Answers to Questions — Civil Aviation: Corporations (Reorganisation Scheme) (24 Nov 1948)

Orders of the Day — Iron and Steel Bill (17 Nov 1948)

Mr Edgar Granville: I agree with the hon. Member for Dewsbury (Mr. William Paling) that this Debate, which has now gone on nearly three days, has centred around public ownership of the iron and steel industry as against public control. It is generally agreed, I think, that this major industry is not likely to go back to purely private enterprise as such in our lifetime. In the case of many major industries, this...

Orders of the Day — Iron and Steel Bill (17 Nov 1948)

Mr Edgar Granville: I have tried to say something in practical defence of the small producer, but the right hon. Gentleman and his friends did not think that was worth while then. The newcomer surely is the lifeblood of private enterprise. We have to face the fact that many of the State omelettes will never be unscrambled, and we have to study them accordingly. No doubt we shall have chairs in the universities...

Orders of the Day — Iron and Steel Bill (17 Nov 1948)

Mr Edgar Granville: The Liberal Party have studied this Bill carefully, although, judging from many of the interruptions, a lot of Members may not even have read it. We have listened to the speeches from both sides, and we are certainly not impressed with the speeches that have come from the Conservative Opposition. We are not convinced that major changes cannot be effected in the iron and steel industry without...

Orders of the Day — Iron and Steel Bill (15 Nov 1948)

Mr Edgar Granville: In reference to the consumers' committee, I understand that the consumer—the user of steel—will have the right to represent his case and give Parliament an opportunity to consider it. Is it intended to give the small producer—the small efficient unit which will be left outside this Bill—the same opportunity to represent his views to a consumers' committee, apart from the other...

Business of the House (15 Jul 1948)

Oral Answers to Questions — Gold Coast: Detained Persons (Release) (14 Jul 1948)

Mr Edgar Granville: Can my right hon. Friend say whether after arrest these men were taken to another part of the country; whether, if they have been returned to their homes, any charge was made against them, and whether their release was made absolutely clear?

Oral Answers to Questions — Gold Coast: Detained Persons (Release) (14 Jul 1948)

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Newsprint Allocation (Holiday Periods) (8 Jul 1948)

Mr Edgar Granville: asked the President of the Board of Trade if, in view of the fact that a large number of people on holiday and who are interested in test matches and other sporting events, including the Olympic Games, have no facilities for listening to the B.B.C. news bulletins, he will consider increasing the supply of newsprint as a special allocation for the holiday period to enable newsagents at seaside...
