Mr Henry Hynd: May I ask in basic American, "How come"?
Mr Henry Hynd: Is the hon. and gallant Member telling us that he, presumably the commanding officer of this mess, indulged in that kind of political propaganda in a military mess?
Mr Henry Hynd: Is the Minister aware that the council of which I am a member has recently had to cut out what he is pleased to call "frills" in order to come down to what he regards as an essential price?
Mr Henry Hynd: This is very important. The hon. Member talks about continuing the Mandate. We are not continuing the Mandate. We are continuing the policy of the White Paper of 1939.
Mr Henry Hynd: asked the President of the Board of Trade why priority is not being given to local authorities for the supply of furniture to council dwellings to enable them to carry out their powers under Section 72 (2) of the Housing Act, I936.
Mr Henry Hynd: Would not all progressive local authorities wish to supply furniture, and use their powers in that respect?
Mr Henry Hynd: asked the Prime Minister if, in the interests of production, it is proposed to limit horse racing to weekends.
Mr Henry Hynd: Is there not more of a case for restricting horse racing, which is a purely gambling affair, to weekends, rather than football, which is a real sport?
Mr Henry Hynd: asked the Attorney-General if he is aware that 16,000 divorce applications are awaiting attention at the office of the Poor Persons Committee of the Law Society; that many of them will not be heard for many months unless additional staff can be made available; and what steps he proposes to take to meet this situation.
Mr Henry Hynd: asked the Minister of Pensions what are the difficulties preventing the setting up of assessment tribunals as provided for in Section 5 of the Pensions Appeal Tribunals Act, 1943; and whether he will indicate when he will be likely to be in a position to name an appointed day for their operation.
Mr Henry Hynd: Is the Minister aware that it is three years since Parliament expressed a desire for assessment tribunals to be set up, and cannot he offer any hope of an early date when they will be set up?
Mr Henry Hynd: asked the Chancel lor of the Exchequer at what rate of interest he is borrowing money to finance the Public Works Loan Board.
Mr Henry Hynd: Can the Minister say how many unemployed persons there are in other seaside resorts?
Mr Henry Hynd: Can the hon. Gentleman give an assurance that this will not lead to Scotsmen being displaced from principal managerial posts elsewhere?
Mr Henry Hynd: As many local authorities arc backward in these matters, will the Minister consider making this function obligatory upon them?
Mr Henry Hynd: If this proposal were adopted, would it not, in the main, be an advertisement for public houses?
Mr Henry Hynd: The hon. Gentleman is wasting his time.
Mr Henry Hynd: As the right hon. Gentleman said that this Resettlement Corps is going to be under British discipline, can he give an assurance that it will not be an armed force?
Mr Henry Hynd: asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he is now able to make a further statement on the future position of those members of the Polish armed forces who do not opt to return to Poland.
Mr Henry Hynd: asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies in how many British colonial territories the master and servant legislation is not in accordance with the provisions and recommendations of the I.L.O. Convention of 1939; in what respects the law differs from the standards laid down by that convention; and what plans have been made to bring the law into line with those standards.
