Mr Henry Hynd: Would my hon. Friend consider fixing a maximum period for these men to remain in the Corps?
Mr Henry Hynd: As the hon. Member who was responsible for the incident last night, may I remind the House that the hon. Member for Sutton Coldfield (Sir J. Mellor), who attempted to raise the matter on the Adjournment, used something like threatening language during the course of the Business discussion on Thursday afternoon? If he made what was tantamount to a threat on that occasion, he must not be...
Mr Henry Hynd: asked the Postmaster-General whether it is a general practice for full-time local government officers to work in their spare time as Post Office telephone operators; and whether, in the particular case to which his attention has been drawn, he will replace this part-time labour by disabled men or women.
Mr Henry Hynd: Is the Postmaster-General saying that it is not possible to get disabled ex-Servicemen, or others who are fit only for light work, to cover these duties, and is it not most undesirable that full-time local government officers should be working part-time in this way?
Mr Henry Hynd: My right hon. Friend has said that 5,000 of these men have refused to join the Polish Resettlement Corps or to go back to Poland. If they are not going to be dealt with in the way mentioned, how are they to be dealt with?
Mr Henry Hynd: In view of the fact that all previous pledges on these matters have been very fairly fulfilled by the generous conditions of the Polish Resettlement Corps, would it not now be desirable give them a clear alternative of joining the Resettlement Corps or going back to Poland; and in view of the feeling that has been aroused in Poland on this matter, would it not also be desirable for the...
Mr Henry Hynd: asked the Minister of Labour why no Ministers have been included in the Government delegation to this year's International Labour Conference.
Mr Henry Hynd: asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what action has been taken by the Government of Trinidad to implement the recommendation of its Cost-of-Living Committee that the prices of essential foodstuffs should be subsidised; and whether any action is to be taken in response to the committee's criticism that the Government's import policy compels Trinidad to buy in a dear market.
Mr Henry Hynd: asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, if, in view of the fact that 65,000 spectators recently attended a mid-week motor cycle speedway meeting at Wembley Stadium, where mid-week greyhound racing with much smaller attendances is prohibited, and that on Wednesday, 14th May, 15,066 people attended a football match at Bradford, he proposes to reconsider his almost complete ban on...
Mr Henry Hynd: Is my right hon. Friend aware that the total estimated attendance at the mid-week racing at Ascot last week was about one million, and does he assume that all producers attend greyhound racing and that the people who attend all these other things are non-producers?
Mr Henry Hynd: In view of the untenable position of this matter, will the Home Secretary be prepared to receive a deputation about it?
Mr Henry Hynd: Is the Home Secretary aware that the Fascists are now holding open-air meetings in Hackney in close proximity to a camp of German prisoners of war, and is that not something which ought to be stopped?
Mr Henry Hynd: Could umbrellas be provided for hon. Members on this side of the House?
Mr Henry Hynd: Will my right hon. Friend say whether all these men have yet been disarmed, and will he also say whether they are still enjoying rations on the same scale as British combatant troops?
Mr Henry Hynd: asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will be prepared to relax the ban on mid week greyhound racing where meetings will not start until after 6 p.m.
Mr Henry Hynd: Can the Home Secretary explain why it is that of all the forms of public entertainment and sport, greyhound racing is the only one singled out for discrimination?
Mr Henry Hynd: I beg to give notice that I will raise the matter again on the Adjournment.
Mr Henry Hynd: asked the Secretary of State for War whether camp regulations permit German prisoners of war at' Victoria Park to attend the weekly Fascist meetings held at the gate of that park.
Mr Henry Hynd: Does not my right hon. Friend agree that his very excellent efforts to educate these German prisoners of war into the British way of life are being frustrated by allowing them to attend such meetings?
Mr Henry Hynd: asked the Secretary of State for War whether Polish troops in this country and the Polish Resettlement Corps are still receiving rations on the same scale as the British Army.
