Orders of the Day — Merchant Shipping (Safety Convention) Bill (30 Mar 1949)

Mr William Guy: I have no desire to introduce any discordant notes into this Debate, because in my judgment we are discussing this afternoon a Measure which is long overdue. Whilst I subscribe to the many tributes paid by the Minister to all concerned in the introduction of this Bill, I wish to say a word or two about a colleague of mine with whom I was associated for a number of years. He is Mr. Jarman, the...

Orders of the Day — Greenwich Hospital and Travers Foundation (7 Jul 1948)

Mr William Guy: During the discussions on the Estimates for 1946–47, a great deal was said about the setting up of the advisory committee. I would like to ask the Financial Secretary how many times the committee has met during the year, and whether any recommendations have been made. Further, have any of the recommendations made last year resulted in any of the economies which my hon. Friend has mentioned...

Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No. 2) BILL (6 May 1948)

Mr William Guy: Does my hon. Friend not appreciate that if we had registered offices, there would be a diminished amount of betting by reason of the fact that many people would not go there to bet because they would not like to be seen going in?

MERCHANT SHIPPING BILL [Lords] (30 Apr 1948)

Mr William Guy: I rise to express my gratification that this Bill has been brought forward, and to welcome it. Speaking as one who has had some experience of service in the Merchant Navy, I feel that by this Bill today we are taking a great step forward in the way of improving the conditions of the Merchant Service. I must express a little disappointment at the fact that the Bill has been brought forward on...

Postwar Credits (Hardship Cases) (19 Dec 1947)

Mr William Guy: I intervene for two minutes to support the plea of hon. Members who have made out this case for the revision of postwar credits. I wish to stress the fact that I represent a constituency where workers in two particular industries—namely, the ship repair workers and dock workers—worked at the fullest pitch throughout the war. They were of the ages of 55 to 60 and they have now reached...

Paper Supplies (Pools and School Books) (13 Jun 1947)

Mr William Guy: There is very little time left to carry on this discussion or for the Parliamentary Secretary to reply, but I must say that I object to hearing, whenever we have Debates of this kind, one specific subject always picked out. People who argue on this subject appear to be individuals whose minds are obsessed against one thing—

Paper Supplies (Pools and School Books) (13 Jun 1947)

Mr William Guy: I say that it is cant and hypocrisy for an hon. Member to talk about the liberty of the subject and then to say, "I have a gamble myself."

Paper Supplies (Pools and School Books) (13 Jun 1947)

Mr William Guy: Hon. Members who argue against these customs, whether it is dog racing or any other kind of activity, interfere.with the liberties of the people who desire to participate in them. This pamphlet has been put before us this afternoon. Obviously it is the rules and regulations. I have no objection to it, but I have to the general remarks against the way pools, even honest pools, are run.

Paper Supplies (Pools and School Books) (13 Jun 1947)

Mr William Guy: I would not have minded if the hon. Member had complained about the tons of rubbish delivered to us which is never seen and is thrown into the wastepaper basket. But hon. Members are always advancing objections to one form of gambling against another. What I notice about some of these cranks and faddists, as I have described them from time to time, is that they are often to be found looking...

Orders of the Day — Dog Racecourse Betting (Temporary Provisions) Bill (21 Mar 1947)

Mr William Guy: Would my right hon Friend allow me?
