Mr Daniel Lipson: In his consultation with his right hon. Friend, will the Home Secretary consider whether it is practicable to give to police authorities a quota of houses for policemen above that assigned to the local authorities for the civilian population? The number cannot be great over the whole nation.
Mr Daniel Lipson: Can my right hon. Friend say when he will be able to announce the result of these investigations?
Mr Daniel Lipson: asked the Minister of Fuel and Power if he will give an estimate of the saving in manpower and expenditure which would result if the rationing of domestic coal were ended; and if he is now able to agree to do this.
Mr Daniel Lipson: Can my right hon. Friend say, if he cannot abolish domestic coal rationing now, whether there is any hope that he will be able to do so in the near future?
Mr Daniel Lipson: I hope the Home Secretary will respond to the appeals that have been made to him from all sides and will agree to set up this inquiry. If he does so, I am sure he will have public opinion behind him, because, as a nation, we love children and hate cruelty, and we hate it most when it is applied to children. I have no misunderstandings about the difficulties that such a committee will have to...
Mr Daniel Lipson: asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what is the maximum number of Germans allowed to be employed in the Civil Aviation Branch of the Control Commission; and what steps he has taken to ensure that the number will not be exceeded, and that the men will be employed only in the limited categories of work at present laid down.
Mr Daniel Lipson: Exactly what matters are still under discussion? Is the number to be increased, and has my hon. Friend any comparable figures for the numbers employed in the other zones?
Mr Daniel Lipson: Does the answer of the hon. Gentleman mean that during the time they are in these colleges students have the same rights and privileges as if they were working and paying their contributions?
Mr Daniel Lipson: Did the local education authority assure the Minister that the views of the parents of these children were taken into account before they came to a decision?
Mr Daniel Lipson: asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he is aware of the concern caused by his decision to allow Germans to be employed in the Civil Aviation Branch of the Control Commission; and if he will withdraw his consent and so remove a potential threat to world peace.
Mr Daniel Lipson: Is not the action taken the thin end of the wedge, and, in view of the use the Germans made of civil aviation after the first world war in building up the Luftwaffe, can we have an assurance that all possible care will be taken to prevent it happening again?
Mr Daniel Lipson: asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs why he instructed the British representative to vote against permission being given to Rev. Michael Scott, a missionary, to state the grievances of natives of South-West Africa to the United Nations Trusteeship Committee.
Mr Daniel Lipson: Would it not have been more in accordance with the British traditions of championing the weak if His Majesty's Government had not taken refuge behind a technical point? May I ask for an assurance that in future the policy of the Government will be influenced by justice and not by political expediency?
Mr Daniel Lipson: I am glad to join in the welcome that has been given to a Bill which is long overdue. I am sure that anyone who is aware of the inadequacy of the present provisions will agree with that statement. I am glad that the method by which the money is to be raised for the building of married quarters is likely to fee effective because it will mean that there will be a regular flow of new buildings....
Mr Daniel Lipson: Would my hon. Friend make representations to the Minister of Defence to ascertain if he will consider bringing in another Bill which would apply the same principle? The great value of this Bill is that it stands alone, with no effect upon the Estimates.
Mr Daniel Lipson: asked the Minister of Health if he will arrange for repairs to deaf-aids to be carried out locally in order to prevent delay.
Mr Daniel Lipson: Will the Minister give some guidance to licensing authorities whether he is prepared to agree that housing costs ought to be raised now, as a result of devaluation, because I have heard of one instance where the figure was raised by £250 and that was the reason given?
Mr Daniel Lipson: New houses.
Mr Daniel Lipson: Is it really beyond the Home Secretary's powers to find out who "John Hadlow" really is, and is it not fair to the police, against whom these serious unsubstantiated charges have been made, and in the public interest that he should continue his efforts to find out and should see that the matter is properly investigated.
Mr Daniel Lipson: asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what was the recommendation made to him by the Far Eastern diplomats, who met in Singapore recently, on the recognition of the Chinese Communist Government.
