Education Bill (22 Apr 1970)

Mr Barnett Janner: Mr. Speaker, you have made a Ruling which will in future, I assume, be accepted as a precedent. The House depends upon precedents. You are fully entitled to make a Ruling, if there is no obvious precedent, which will in itself become a precedent. In the circumstances, is it not a pure waste of time on the part of those who oppose that Ruling—[HON. MEMBERS: "Oh."] It is no good hon. Members...

Education Bill (22 Apr 1970)

Mr Barnett Janner: rose——

Middle East (13 Apr 1970)

Mr Barnett Janner: Is it not a fact that the Prime Minister of Israel has stated quite categorically that she is prepared to meet Nasser or any of the other leaders of the Arab world anywhere at any time, on their own ground or wherever they want to meet? How can my hon. Friend say what he is saying?

Middle East (13 Apr 1970)

Mr Barnett Janner: I am sorry that my right hon. Friend the Member for Belper (Mr. George Brown) is not here. I tried to intervene when he was dealing with the question of the treatment of the Jews in Arab countries. I ought to give the House the information which is available in this respect. It is extremely serious. U Thant, the Secretary-General of the United Nations, wrote in his introduction of the yearly...

Middle East (13 Apr 1970)

Mr Barnett Janner: Has the hon. Gentleman ever heard of Kenyatta? The individual to whom he referred represents a small minority. That kind of thing has happened in numerous States and the hon. Member must not use the exception to try to prove the rule. The Israeli people are a peace-loving people. They do not hate the Arabs, even though Arabs have been under orders to destroy them. May I try to put into...

Middle East (13 Apr 1970)

Mr Barnett Janner: I do not agree.

Middle East (13 Apr 1970)

Mr Barnett Janner: Everybody grieves at the deaths. But if Nasser is determined to avoid the cease-fire, which is acceptable to the Israelis and for which they have asked time after time, and if Nasser insists that he is still at war, what are the Israelis to do? Are they to wait until he bombs and kills them or until he crosses the Suez? Would my hon. Friend the Member for Smethwick (Mr. Faulds) do that if he...

Middle East (13 Apr 1970)

Mr Barnett Janner: If hon. Members look at the arguments which have been used about the four-Power talks, they will see that they do not hold water. Everyone can see the machinations of Russia in the activities in the Middle East. Why does not the hon. Member for Norfolk, Central (Mr. Ian Gilmour) send a letter to Russia on the subject or do something else about it? Why does he not ask the Russians, "Why are...

Middle East (13 Apr 1970)

Mr Barnett Janner: The hon. Member is not as naive as that. He knows that the Russians will provide arms irrespective of any arrangements which they make with anybody else. What happened about the provision of more Phantom aircraft for Israel? The Russians had agreed with the Americans about it, but practically the following day they sent more weapons to Egypt. It ought to be made absolutely certain and clear...

Middle East (13 Apr 1970)

Mr Barnett Janner: I want the hon. Gentleman to realise that, in my view, the interests of Israel, of the Arabs and Britain all coincide. That is why I spoke on this subject in the way I did.

Mr Barnett Janner: Does not my hon. Friend realise that the delay in taking effective measures is conducive to the situation escalating?

Orders of the Day — ANIMALS BILL [Lords] (4 Feb 1970)

Mr Barnett Janner: Seven years ago, after my hon. Friend the Member for Aberdare (Mr. Probert) had started the ball rolling, I asked leave of the House to introduce a Bill dealing specifically with items included in Clause 8 of this Bill. Since then on seven occasions in seven successive years the House has given me permission to introduce Bills. When I heard my right hon. and learned Friend the...

Orders of the Day — ANIMALS BILL [Lords] (4 Feb 1970)

Mr Barnett Janner: If the hon. Gentleman reads the Clause again he will see that fencing is covered by the provisions. I believe that the restrictions in the Clause are greater than they should be, and that in Committee we must devise a method by which people will not be able to avoid paying compensation because the person claiming it cannot for financial or other reasons take proceedings. There is another,...

Orders of the Day — ANIMALS BILL [Lords] (4 Feb 1970)

Mr Barnett Janner: Does not the hon. and learned Gentleman agree that the layman thinks that he can get compensation? If he reads the many letters which are received by hon. Members he will agree about that. People are amazed when they find that they cannot obtain compensation. It is for the lawyer and the layman to realise that before the bringing in of this Bill compensation was not available: now it is to be...

Orders of the Day — ANIMALS BILL [Lords] (4 Feb 1970)
