Business of the House (12 Nov 1942)

Sir Douglas Hacking: Of course, I bow to your Ruling, Mr. Speaker. I must appeal to you because this is the first speech that I have made in this House during the last six years, and possibly as a result of that I have become a little rusty. If I may give my argument to you, with the greatest respect, I do not want to give up my rights in respect of Private Members' legislation unless I know what I am going to...

Business of the House (12 Nov 1942)

Sir Douglas Hacking: I do not intend to go into any detail at all, but I ask my right hon. and learned Friend whether he will give some more direct indication as to the volume of opposition which would be necessary, in his opinion, if legislation were considered to be contentious.

Friend aware that an acting corporal has to wait three months before he gets substantive rank and a warrant officer no less than 12 months, and that if in the meantime either of them is sick or injured for a period of 21 days, he has to revert to his previous rank?

Emigration. (18 Dec 1935)

Sir Douglas Hacking: There are two reasons why I have not previously attempted to catch your eye, Sir. The first is that I have been so content in listening to all the interesting speeches that have been made from every quarter of the House that I have not desired to break that sequence. The second and main reason for my delay in getting up is that there is very little really that I can usefully add to the...

Emigration. (18 Dec 1935)

Sir Douglas Hacking: I am willing to accept the correction. That may be true, but I must admit that on this occasion I have to agree with the hon. Member for Roth-well (Mr. Lunn) when he says that if we had emigrated such a huge number of persons during the last 20 years, although it might have cured unemployment in this country, what would have been the state of unemployment in the Dominions?

Emigration. (18 Dec 1935)

Sir Douglas Hacking: I am glad my hon. and gallant Friend accepts that. That is proof that we cannot rightly suggest to the Dominions that they should take our unemployed population unless they can absorb them to advantage. I now turn to that part of the Motion which makes a practical suggestion, namely, that the time has arrived when immediate steps should be taken to survey possibilities for restarting...
