Orders of the Day — Iron and Steel Bill (16 Nov 1948)

Mr Thomas Horabin: Like my hon. Friend the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Supply, I feel that I should plead for the indulgence of the House. It is very nearly two years since I last spoke in this House. The effect of a crash takes some time to get over, and it also takes some time to regain one's confidence. It is for that reason that I plead for the indulgence of the House. I am going to criticise...

Orders of the Day — Iron and Steel Bill (16 Nov 1948)

Mr Thomas Horabin: I want to read a few sentences out of this document because it does not seem to me to require any technical knowledge to understand what we wrote. When we wrote these statements we must have fully understood what we were doing. We went into some detail and gave the perfect economic case for the nationalisation of the steel industry. Under the heading "Publicly Owned Monopolies" there is the...

Orders of the Day — Iron and Steel Bill (16 Nov 1948)

Mr Thomas Horabin: If I remember aright the right hon. Gentleman said that the Beveridge plan was premature. Does not that amount to the same thing?

Orders of the Day — Iron and Steel Bill (16 Nov 1948)

Mr Thomas Horabin: I apologise to the right hon. Gentleman if I misinterpreted him, but it was clearly in my mind that that was the effect of what he said. However, I have no wish to misrepresent him. I consider that the time to nationalise the industry is now. In the sellers' market of today we can squeeze the monopoly good will out of the industry if the problem is tackled in the right way. The Leader of...

Civil Estimates, 1946: Foreign Affairs (5 Jun 1946)

Mr Thomas Horabin: My hon. Friend the Member for Broxtowe (Mr. Cocks) was advocating a counsel of despair when he suggested that at this moment the world should be divided up into spheres of influence. As he knows, I go a very long way with him in certain directions but I do not think the time has yet arrived for us to give up all hope of the Big Three reaching fundamental agreement leading to a proper peace...

Civil Estimates, 1946: Foreign Affairs (5 Jun 1946)

Mr Thomas Horabin: I was saying nothing of the kind. What I said was that the decision was obviously reached with Mr. Byrnes as the prime mover and was not disputed by our representatives, and that, unfortunately, this situation gives M. Molotov an opportunity of making the kind of statements he is making about an Anglo-American bloc. I am not saying there is an Anglo-American bloc for one single moment; what I...

Civil Estimates, 1946: Foreign Affairs (5 Jun 1946)

Mr Thomas Horabin: If my hon. Friend will allow me, I shall be dealing in some detail and with some bluntness with that very point in a few moments, but I should like to follow my argument in what I conceive to be its logical form. I had hoped that the forthcoming peace settlement would right the mistakes and injustices made during the peace settlement after the first world war, but I do not think that those...

Civil Estimates, 1946: Foreign Affairs (5 Jun 1946)

Mr Thomas Horabin: The hon. Member says " Rubbish."I am going to deal with our relations with Soviet Russia, then I will possibly get some cheers from hon. Members above the Gangway. The most important reason why we must stand independently of the United States, and treat them as an equal, with definite policies of our own, is the disastrous direction in which the United States are drifting. There are many...

Civil Estimates, 1946: Foreign Affairs (5 Jun 1946)

Mr Thomas Horabin: Certainly soldiers in the United States have the highest standard of living in the world. During the war they were able to absorb the whole of their production, and now they should put the people on the same standard of living, but that they refuse to do. I now come to the effect of what is going on in the United States. As a result of all I have been talking about, the United States is...

Oral Answers to Questions — Food Supplies: Peanuts (7 Nov 1945)

Mr Thomas Horabin: asked the Minister of Food whether, in view of the shortage of proteins, he is now prepared to release a limited quantity of peanuts for the production of peanut flour for human consumption, instead of animal feeding-stuffs, especially as the process for producing peanut flour for human consumption gives the same quantity of fats as when the residue is used as cattle food.
