Orders of the Day — Agriculture (Small Farmers) Bill (10 Nov 1958)

Mr Christopher Holland-Martin: As one who represents a constituency which contains a large number of small farms, none of which, as far as I know, has come into being by the method which the right hon. Member for the Don Valley (Mr. T. Williams) has suggested, I welcome the Bill and I congratulate my right hon. Friend the Minister on his courage in tackling in such a very practical way a problem which we all know exists...

Orders of the Day — Central African Federation (24 Mar 1953)

Mr Christopher Holland-Martin: This important debate turns on three points which have been dealt with by other speakers. The first is whether federation of these territories is a good thing.

Mr Christopher Holland-Martin: Several hon. Members have spoken of the dropping of the proposed African member of the Cabinet. I am not particularly impressed with the seriousness of that loss, because it seems to me that it was what one might call a paper conception. It would not have worked to have a cuckoo Minister, as my right hon. Friend called him, who goes on like part of the furniture from one Government to the...

Agriculture and Horticulture (4 Apr 1952)

Mr Christopher Holland-Martin: This is the first time I have spoken in the House, and I am sure the hon. Member for Stoke-on-Trent, North (Mr. Edward Davies), will forgive me if I do not follow him. I am sure too that he and the hon. Member for Wednesbury (Mr. S. N. Evans) will forgive be if I do not say very much about the Amendment. I feel that if I did so I should be bound to transgress and become controversial, and I...
