War Situation. (5 Nov 1940)

Mr Hastings Lees-Smith: The Prime Minister began his speech with a passage in which to some extent he plainly stated our position as it is at the present time, and he also gave some indication of the general prospects of the war. On that particular phase of the discussion I will give the impression I have formed, both from his statement, and from the events which have occurred since we last met. Looking at the...

War Situation. (5 Nov 1940)

Mr Hastings Lees-Smith: It is the case that all the bombers which have been sent to Italy have returned safely. There are no reported losses in that area of operations. But I do not wish to be pushed aside from my argument by the Prime Minister's explanation, because what he has said does not entirely satisfy me. In bombing Germany we have had a curtain order of priority—oil, railway lines, power stations, canals....

Business of the House. (24 Oct 1940)

Orders of the Day — Prolongation of Parliament Bill. (23 Oct 1940)

Mr Hastings Lees-Smith: This is a simple Bill, and, as the Home Secretary has explained to the House, its purpose is really self-evident. I cannot imagine that there will be anywhere any desire to oppose its passage into law, but the Home Secretary has raised one or two connected subjects, which arise out of the Bill and which I am rather surprised to find occupied in the last war not only days 'out weeks of...

Orders of the Day — Prolongation of Parliament Bill. (23 Oct 1940)

Mr Hastings Lees-Smith: My remarks on re-distribution had come to an end. I merely wished to call attention to the fact that it was a connected question which would have to be dealt with before the next General Election. At this point I proposed to pass away—

Orders of the Day — Prolongation of Parliament Bill. (23 Oct 1940)

Mr Hastings Lees-Smith: The Home Secretary closed his speech with a statement of the intentions of the Government regarding a number of questions which would have to be settled before the final Bill for the prolongation of Parliament was passed. I am afraid that this Bill will have to be regarded as the first of a series. It has been suggested, and I noticed the suggestion in the Press, that some of the subjects to...

Orders of the Day — Prolongation of Parliament Bill. (23 Oct 1940)

Mr Hastings Lees-Smith: I do not propose to debate them, but part of the Home Secretary's speech was a fairly detailed examination of the registration problem which is involved in the prolongation of Parliament. That is why I have devoted some sentences to that part of his speech. With regard to his remarks on registration, I was giving it as my opinion that it would not be enough merely to bring up to date the...

Mr Hastings Lees-Smith: Will the Prime Minister take into account the fact that there is a certain desire among some hon. Members to have a discussion on the new Ministry of Works and Buildings, particularly with regard to its functions and the much wider questions arising out of it? Could time be found for such a discussion at the third sitting?

War Situation. (8 Oct 1940)

Mr Hastings Lees-Smith: The Prime Minister concluded his speech with an appeal to the nation which will meet with a response which will be universal. I think the House will have noticed that although he closed with that very solemn warning to us as to what we must be prepared to face, his speech in its total effect was of an encouraging nature, especially that part of it in which he dealt with what has been the...
