Orders of the Day — House of Commons Disqualification (Temporary Provisions) Bill. (27 Feb 1941)

Mr Hastings Lees-Smith: Hon. Members on this side of the House take various views about the Bill. Some support it and others do not, and a certain number will be influenced by the course of the Debate. My personal view is that it will be wise to support the Bill, especially now that we have heard the statement of the Attorney-General regarding a Select Committee, about which I wish to say a few words presently. I...

Orders of the Day — House of Commons Disqualification (Temporary Provisions) Bill. (27 Feb 1941)

Mr Hastings Lees-Smith: The United States did not exist in 1705. In answer to the interruption by the hon. Member for Cambridge University (Mr. Pickthorn), I gather that, so far as the procedure of this House is concerned, we see no difference between the Government of Russia under Stalin and the Government of Russia under Peter the Great.

Orders of the Day — House of Commons Disqualification (Temporary Provisions) Bill. (27 Feb 1941)

Mr Hastings Lees-Smith: My opinion has been expressed in Debate in this House. Obviously, the whole question is left to chance, and for that reason it is a situation which ought to be cleaned up. In discussing how it could be cleaned up, I was impressed by a phrase which the Attorney-General used and which seems to me to be the overriding question. He referred to the national interest. The overriding question here...

Business of the House. (13 Feb 1941)

Mr Hastings Lees-Smith: The Lord Privy Seal will no doubt know that there is a desire for a fairly full discussion on the Ministry of Works and Buildings, but I do not think it is very convenient to take that as a matter to be dealt with under the Sup- plementary Estimates. Could we therefore have an understanding that a full day will be set aside for that subject at a fairly early date?

The Late Lord Lloyd. (6 Feb 1941)

Mr Hastings Lees-Smith: I would wish, in a few sentences, to say to the Prime Minister that he has expressed the feeling of all the House in the tribute which he has paid to Lord Lloyd—a tribute which was worthy of the man on account of whom it was uttered. The Prime Minister has spoken with the knowledge of personal friendship and has said things which, I think, it was good for the House to know. As he said, Lord...

Suppression of the "daily Worker" and the "week." (28 Jan 1941)

Mr Hastings Lees-Smith: I beg to move, in line 5, to leave out from "defeated" to the end of the Question, and to add instead thereof: and while anxious that the principle of freedom for the expression of minority opinions shall be maintained so far as possible and that the minimum use shall be made even in time of war of powers of repression, recognises that special and effective measures must he taken against the...

Suppression of the "daily Worker" and the "week." (28 Jan 1941)

Mr Hastings Lees-Smith: I think I have listened fairly to the arguments of the two hon. Members who have put forward their case at some length. What they say appears to me to come to this, that even if it is admitted that the "Daily Worker" ought to be dealt with, they contend that the Government should not have suppressed the paper by executive action, but that the proper course would have been to prosecute in a...

Suppression of the "daily Worker" and the "week." (28 Jan 1941)

Mr Hastings Lees-Smith: I did not say that.
