Mr Edgar Granville: The hon. Member for Torquay (Mr. C. Williams), whose excursions on these Bills we always enjoy, said that the speech of the Senior Burgess for Cambridge University (Mr. Pickthorn) had converted my hon. and learned Friend the Member for Carmarthen (Mr. Hopkin Morris). I would remind the hon. Member, who is usually more accurate about these things, that in the other place this Amendment was a...

Orders of the Day — Iron and Steel Bill: Clause 1. — (the Iron and Steel Corporation of Great Britain.) (25 Jul 1949)

Mr Edgar Granville: The hon. Member for Wednesbury (Mr. S. N. Evans), who always speaks with a great deal of common sense and candour on these matters, has captured most of the limelight in this Debate. He said in his interesting speech that he found it extremely difficult to discover how we could get a definition of men who had wide experience and had showed capacity in the production of iron ore and steel. If...

Orders of the Day — Iron and Steel Bill: Clause 3. — [General Duty of the Corporation.) (25 Jul 1949)

Mr Edgar Granville: I have listened to most of the Minister's explanations and his replies to the various new Clauses and Amendments: and I was frankly very surprised at the lack of reality on the part of the right hon. Gentleman in not accepting this Amendment, which was moved by the Liberal peers in another place. I am not sure whether the reply of the right hon. Gentleman was prepared in his own Department,...

Orders of the Day — Iron and Steel Bill: Clause 3. — [General Duty of the Corporation.) (25 Jul 1949)

Mr Edgar Granville: I rubbed my eyes when I listened to the right hon. Gentleman's reply, not because it is 5.20 a.m. but because I thought I was listening to the most eloquent and powerful argument against the nationalisation of steel which I have heard in this Debate. He was explaining the complications and difficulties of the hundred and one small operations and various provisions in the iron and steel...

Orders of the Day — Iron and Steel Bill: Clause 3. — [General Duty of the Corporation.) (25 Jul 1949)

Mr Edgar Granville: In view of the fact that the acting Leader of the House has said that we may have to sit on Monday and Tuesday of next week, it is quite obvious that it will be our duty on this side of the House to move the Adjournment in view of the impending economic crisis. It is quite possible that in any event the House will be recalled during August, and that we might have to sit through the whole of...

Orders of the Day — Airways Corporations Bill: New Clause. — (Employees of Corporations Not to Be Dismissed On9 Account of Redundancy.) (18 Jul 1949)

Mr Edgar Granville: I want to know the facts. The Parliamentary Secretary says that out of 20,000 the membership of A.E.A. is just over 2,000. Can he say whether all the others, the 18,000, are members of the other unions?

Orders of the Day — Airways Corporations Bill: New Clause. — (Employees of Corporations Not to Be Dismissed On9 Account of Redundancy.) (18 Jul 1949)

Oral Answers to Questions — R.a.F. (Low Flying) (13 Jul 1949)

Orders of the Day — Fuel and Power (19 May 1949)

Mr Edgar Granville: I listened with great interest to the hon. Member for Clay Cross (Mr. Neal). I am not sure that he answered the most able debating speech of the hon. Member for Northwich (Mr. J. Foster) who compared the 1941 figures with those for 1948. When the Parliamentary Secretary replies to the Debate, I shall be most interested if he will tell us what were the actual figures of production per man hour...

Orders of the Day — Fuel and Power (19 May 1949)

Mr Edgar Granville: When the Debate on this subject was interrupted, I was trying to induce the Minister of Fuel and Power to consider the suggestion that, over a period, at any rate, he should, by way of an experiment, either increase the petrol ration or remove rationing altogether. I endeavoured to show that, owing to the shift in our national economy, we should give the business community more petrol in...

Orders of the Day — Fuel and Power (19 May 1949)

Mr Edgar Granville: Whenever a suggestion is made in this Committee the hon. Member for Sparkbrook (Mr. Shurmer) always says he has never heard such rubbish in his life. Where he makes a fundamental mistake is that he expects that every suggestion put forward is, in itself, a total answer to the problem. Of course it is not. We shall only get through this difficulty, with Marshall Aid or any other assistance we...

Mr Edgar Granville: I beg to second the Amendment.

Budget Proposals and Economic Situation (11 Apr 1949)

Mr Edgar Granville: Is the right hon. Gentleman satisfied that these very comprehensive arrangements—which I am sure are welcomed on all sides of the Committee—will cover the greatest difficulty of all, namely, the time-lag between the receipt of orders and de- livery, during which period many cancellations take place?

Budget Proposals and Economic Situation (11 Apr 1949)

Mr Edgar Granville: It is also important that British exporters and manufacturers should know American and Canadian tastes.

Miscellaneous: 31. Amendment of Law (6 Apr 1949)

Mr Edgar Granville: I am sure we all congratulate the Chancellor on the sustained effort and the clarity with which he introduced his financial and economic survey. I thought that he resembled the "Iron Chancellor" when I saw him standing at the Despatch Box resisting the pressure from the left and from the right. On an occasion like this, we always feel admiration for the able Treasury and Revenue officials who...

Miscellaneous: 31. Amendment of Law (6 Apr 1949)

Mr Edgar Granville: I was not speaking of a "Geddes Axe"—I know the fallacy of a "Geddes Axe." I was talking of efficiency in national administration which is important in relation to the technique of organisation of nationalised industries and so on. In all those things efficiency is related to economy.
