Orders of the Day — Nutrition (15 Dec 1949)

Dr Leslie Haden-Guest: I am very glad to have the opportunity of taking part in this important Debate. My interjection about medical statistics was due to the fact that this Debate is one which pre-eminently ought to be kept as far above the ordinary party level as possible. This is a matter with which every citizen and every Member of Parliament, on whatever side of the House he sits, is intimately concerned. I...

Orders of the Day — India (Consequential Provision) Bill (5 Dec 1949)

Dr Leslie Haden-Guest: I rise to speak on this occasion although the House is not very full with a tremendous emotion within me, because this is a very great moment in our history. The Bill now before the House is the crown to that great record of the history of our association with India and with the Commonwealth. It is an occasion which marks a very outstanding achievement of British democracy. The right hon....

Orders of the Day — Armed Forties (Housing Loans) (22 Nov 1949)

Dr Leslie Haden-Guest: As the hon. and gallant Member for Petersfield (Sir G. Jeffreys) has said, the Committee should welcome this Motion providing for married quarters.' It is one of the really urgent things which require to be done in order to give some reasonable basis of stability and sense of being really looked after, to those in the Forces who are married and who require married quarters. I do not think...

Orders of the Day — War Damaged Sites Bill: Clause 3. — (Compulsory Taking of Possession.) (18 Nov 1949)

Dr Leslie Haden-Guest: I did not come to the House this morning to make a speech on this Bill because it never entered my mind, as a commonsense individual, that anybody would oppose what is so obviously a necessary precaution in view of existing circumstances. In my constituency of North Islington the matter is an extraordinarily difficult one. I have had a lot of correspondence recently about one bombed site....

Oral Answers to Questions — South Africa (High Commission Territories) (3 Nov 1949)

Dr Leslie Haden-Guest: Is it not the case that if the Territories were put in the charge of the South African Union the conditions of the people living there would badly deteriorate? I hope His Majesty's Government will refuse to allow this transfer to take place.

Orders of the Day — Auxiliary and Reserve Forces Bill: Clause 3. — (Powers and Duties of Associations.) (24 Oct 1949)

Dr Leslie Haden-Guest: Would it not be a simple solution to substitute for the word "military" the word "defence" so that it would read "His Majesty's defence forces" which would include Civil Defence, the Home Guard and everything else?

Orders of the Day — Auxiliary and Reserve Forces Bill: Clause 5. — (Conditions of Service.) (24 Oct 1949)

Dr Leslie Haden-Guest: May I say how much I was interested in the historical retrospect of the noble Lord, which I would venture to supplement in one respect by pointing out that the volunteering for the Territorial Army which took place during the first world war was so rapid that, at a very early stage of the operations, I found myself, in a hospital in France in September or October, 1914, with a number of...

Orders of the Day — National Health Service (Amendment) Bill: Schedule. — (Minor Amendments of the Act of 1946 and 1947.) (19 Oct 1949)

Dr Leslie Haden-Guest: Is the hon. Member suggesting that free choice of specialist existed before the Health Service came into operation? It was most uncommon for a patient to know anything about the specialist, except in a very small proportion of cases.

Orders of the Day — Africa (29 Jul 1949)

Dr Leslie Haden-Guest: Why does the hon. Member think that all Members will agree with that? I certainly do not.

Orders of the Day — Child Welfare (22 Jul 1949)

Dr Leslie Haden-Guest: I am glad to follow my hon. Friend the Member for East Harrow (Mr. Skinnard) and to agree with him very heartily indeed that punitive measures are by no means enough. My own approach to this problem differs slightly from that of my hon. Friend, and that of the hon. Lady the Member for North Hendon (Mrs. Ayrton Gould), who opened this Debate. Some years ago, and for many years, I was a medical...

Orders of the Day — Colonial Affairs (20 Jul 1949)

Dr Leslie Haden-Guest: Some form of contract?

Orders of the Day — Colonial Affairs (20 Jul 1949)

Dr Leslie Haden-Guest: The hon. Member for Eddisbury (Sir J. Barlow) is so full of information about rubber, that I shall not venture to follow him in his argument. I wish to draw the attention of the Committee, first of all, to the larger aspects of the matter in regard to the statement of the Minister and with regard to the blue book which I believe to be one of the most important publications that the House has...

Orders of the Day — Analgesia in Childbirth Bill: Clause 5. — (Interpretation.) (8 Jul 1949)

Dr Leslie Haden-Guest: I think that the hon. Gentleman is wrong in taking this technical point of view. The private hospitals outside the control of the Minister, such as he was speaking of, deal with a large number of different things. They may be dealing with invalid children, they may be dealing with the mentally defective, they may be dealing with foreign seamen. I think the point is much wider than the hon....

Orders of the Day — Analgesia in Childbirth Bill: Clause 5. — (Interpretation.) (8 Jul 1949)

Dr Leslie Haden-Guest: The hon. Member for Monmouth (Mr. P. Thorneycroft) has spoken with a certain amount of passion. I am sure that he is sincere in his desire to do the utmost possible to help, but the objection to the Bill is the very simple one that it is no longer necessary. However good the propaganda was in the first instance—and it was quite good—since then, in the Committee stage of the National...

Married Women (Maintenance) Bill: New Clause. — (Duties of Collecting Officer in Respect of Enforcement of Maintenance Orders.) (24 Jun 1949)

Dr Leslie Haden-Guest: I wish to support the Clause. I hope it will be placed upon the Statute Book. I have some particular interest in it in view of the fact that in the Committee stage I tabled an Amendment intended to give effect to the proposals contained in the Clause; I withdrew it with a view to further consideration being given to the wording in order that it might cover some of the points mentioned in the...

Orders of the Day — National Health Service (Amendment) Bill (24 May 1949)

Dr Leslie Haden-Guest: The hon. Member means negative, not positive, direction?

Orders of the Day — National Health Service (Amendment) Bill (24 May 1949)

Dr Leslie Haden-Guest: I do not want to follow the hon. Member for St. George's (Mr. Howard), although like others I am grateful for the great service he has rendered to public health in the medical field, but I think he takes too gloomy a view when he says that we cannot do everything we wish. He underestimates the tremendous amount of work which has actually been done since the initiation of the National Health...

Schedule. (29 Apr 1949)

Dr Leslie Haden-Guest: I am afraid I cannot associate myself with some of the misgivings that have been expressed. Misgivings can always be expressed about a Measure, however excellent. It would seem to me to be more appropriate on this occasion for the House to congratulate itself on the co-operation amongst hon. Members on both sides which has allowed us to produce a Measure which will be of the greatest possible...
