Supplementary Vote of Credit, 1941.: War Situation. (30 Sep 1941)

Mr Hastings Lees-Smith: The Prime Minister began his speech with an encouraging and, I thought, remarkable account of the Battle of the Atlantic, and that account of the Battle of the Atlantic appeared to me to show in even better relief the perspective of the Russian campaign. Hitherto in our discussions in this House we have mainly devoted ourselves to two possible methods by which we might be defeated. One was...

War Situation. (9 Sep 1941)

Mr Hastings Lees-Smith: The Prime Minister has surveyed the whole field, I think, of our present operations and has given a sober and very carefully restrained account of the recent course of the war.

Orders of the Day — War Situation. (6 Aug 1941)

Mr Hastings Lees-Smith: The right hon. Gentleman the Lord Privy Seal has made a survey of the war which is very compact—so compact that it is difficult to realise that he did in fact cover the whole field—and at the same time restrained. Nevertheless, behind the restraint of his statement, I think we can find reasons for fairly solid satisfaction with our existing conditions, and I think he was very right,...

Orders of the Day — War Situation. (6 Aug 1941)

Mr Hastings Lees-Smith: For the moment I was referring to what are called occupied countries, because the Lord Privy Seal devoted a special passage in his speech to them.

She has round about 250 divisions, and it needs very little...

Albery) and over 60 other Members which I think more or less covered the ground which he has covered in this Debate. I mention that, because my hon. Friends behind me had a very full discussion on this Motion and asked me to express their views, and their views were, by a very large...

Orders of the Day — Emergency Powers (Defence) Act, 1939 (Continuance). (23 Jul 1941)

Mr Hastings Lees-Smith: I do not know that it is necessary for Members of a party to tell the House when a party discussion took place. I say that it took place. and it was a very full one. The basis of this Motion, which I thought on account of its basis needed a serious discussion by my hon. Friends, was that we are by these Regulations undermining the whole sys tem of English jurisprudence. I think that must be...
