Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Civil Servants' Pensions (15 Dec 1942)

Admiral Sir Roger Keyes: Will the Chancellor also consider the case of Service pensioners who after the last war were given a pension based on the cost of living, that the pension was lowered as the cost of living decreased, and that finally it was stabilised when the cost of living was 40 per cent. less than it is to-day?

Orders of the Day — War Injuries (Compensation to Civilian Women.) (25 Nov 1942)

Admiral Sir Roger Keyes: Suppose that in an ordnance factory there are a dozen women and one man working in a shop and there is an accident which injures them all 100 per cent. Under present Regulations what would be the difference between the compensation that the man would get and the women would get?

Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Navy: Chief of Naval Air Services (14 Oct 1942)

Admiral Sir Roger Keyes: Is not the Minister aware that there are naval officers who have had very considerable flying experience in the Fleet Air Arm but who have not been employed in connection with naval aviation during the whole course of this war?

Orders of the Day — Prolongation of Parliament Bill (30 Sep 1942)

Admiral Sir Roger Keyes: I support this Bill because if a General Election were held, several hundred thousands of fighting men would be disfranchised, which would be very unfair, since the security of the country, the preservation of our liberties and the very existence of Parliament itself will depend upon the success of their efforts.

Service Pay and Allowances (10 Sep 1942)

Admiral Sir Roger Keyes: I am sorry that the hon. and gallant Member for Whitechapel (Mr. W. Edwards) has left the House because I would like, speaking for other sailor Members of the House—I am sure I can speak for them—to welcome him to this House. He will reinforce us in our efforts in fighting for the sailor men. I can almost sympathise with the Chancellor of the Exchequer for having to meet this heavy and...

Service Pay and Allowances (10 Sep 1942)

Admiral Sir Roger Keyes: I do not know what the hon. Member means.

Service Pay and Allowances (10 Sep 1942)

Admiral Sir Roger Keyes: It all comes back to the point that the Minister of Pensions has to deal with the Treasury. The people who decide these cases do so with just about as much heart as those responsible for this frightful White Paper. Ail these cases are not sympathetically dealt with; many are still pending, and I shall go on fighting them until better treatment is given to the widows of men who have died or...

Oral Answers to Questions — Armed Forces (Pensions and Grants). ( 6 Aug 1942)

Admiral Sir Roger Keyes: Does not the right hon. Gentleman think it is about time Service Ministers looked after the interests of serving men instead of always passing the buck to him?

Oral Answers to Questions — Premises, Portsmouth (Compulsory Purchase). ( 4 Aug 1942)

Admiral Sir Roger Keyes: asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he is aware that the Admiralty are now purchasing compulsorily a number of small dwellings in Portsea, Portsmouth, immediately adjacent and forming a salient into the Royal Dockyard under powers given by the Defence Acts and the Acquisition of Land (Assessment of Compensation) Act, 1919; that the price given thereunder to a dispossessed owner is...

Orders of the Day — Defence Regulation 18B. (21 Jul 1942)

Admiral Sir Roger Keyes: I wish to call attention to the case of Squadron-Leader Rutland, an officer who spent 23 years in the Royal Navy and Royal Air Force. While he was still on the active list of the Royal Air Force, he was sent out by the Air Ministry' to Japan as technical officer on a mission which was to teach the Japanese how to build up a naval air service. He was told to put everything at their disposal...

Oral Answers to Questions — Military Service.: Conscientious Objectors. ( 9 Jul 1942)

Admiral Sir Roger Keyes: Is the Minister aware that there is a number of societies which encourage so-called conscientious objectors to avoid military service?

Central Direction of the War. ( 1 Jul 1942)

Admiral Sir Roger Keyes: I beg to second the Motion. It literally expresses what I have felt for the last 18 months, in fact since we failed to make use of our amphibious power in the first Libyan campaign during the winter of 1940–41, when we had the means to strike the enemy's communica- tions and island bases and might well have been able to knock Italy out of North Africa before Germany could come to her aid...

Central Direction of the War. ( 1 Jul 1942)

Admiral Sir Roger Keyes: Perhaps my hon. and gallant Friend will wait until I tell him. It is hard that three times in the Prime Minister's career he should have been thwarted—in Gallipoli, in Norway and in the Mediterranean—in carrying out strategical strokes which might have altered the whole course of two wars, each time because his constitutional naval adviser declined to share the responsibility with him if...

Central Direction of the War. ( 1 Jul 1942)

Admiral Sir Roger Keyes: I do not think that my hon. Friend ever suggested that the Prime Minister had unduly interfered with the naval direction of the war. [Interruption.] Well, if so, I submit that I have dispelled that suggestion. When the "Scharnhorst" and the "Gneisenau" escaped it had been expected at Portsmouth for eight or nine days that they were likely to break out through the Channel. What steps were...

Central Direction of the War. ( 1 Jul 1942)

Admiral Sir Roger Keyes: It would be a deplorable disaster if the Prime Minister had to go. We do not deserve to win the war until the whole nation is imbued with the same spirit of service and self-sacrifice as our fighting men have displayed. Many thousands of our men have given their lives, and many thousands more will be called upon to do so. We owe it to them to see that the central direction of the war is fit...

Orders of the Day — CONSOLIDATED FUND (No. 3) BILL. (23 Jun 1942)

Admiral Sir Roger Keyes: I want to suggest to the Chancellor of the Exchequer a way of cutting down the enormous expenditure which is being poured out day after day, and to suggest to the Government a way of putting a stop to a great deal of dissatisfaction and jealousy which prevails among working people. I have been about the country a good deal and have met it everywhere I go. I will not follow my hon. Friend the...

Orders of the Day — CONSOLIDATED FUND (No. 3) BILL. (23 Jun 1942)

Admiral Sir Roger Keyes: Well, the hon. Member has said it to the Government as well as to an Admiral of the Fleet. The men of the three fighting Services get a moderate wage with family and other allowances, but even when taking all these into consideration they receive considerably less than men and women, boys and girls can earn in war industries at the present time, and so, apparently, do the miners. Those high...

Orders of the Day — Coal Policy. (11 Jun 1942)

Admiral Sir Roger Keyes: Just like the soldiers and sailors.

Orders of the Day — Coal Policy. (11 Jun 1942)

Admiral Sir Roger Keyes: If I had been fortunate enough to catch the Speaker's eye, my hon. Friend would have heard exactly what I think of what is happening in the mining industry and proposals for bettering the output more effectively than would be likely to occur if nationalisation were accepted.

Orders of the Day — Coal Policy. (11 Jun 1942)

Admiral Sir Roger Keyes: I should like to ask the hon. Gentleman two questions. He said it was necessary to increase output; would it be possible to extend the number of hours in the shift?
