Nyasaland (State of Emergency) (3 Mar 1959)

Orders of the Day — Obscene Publications Bill (29 Mar 1957)

Brigadier Sir Harry Mackeson: I entirely and absolutely agree with my hon. and learned Friend, but does not his statement of these works selling at £7 each in comparison with the total fines for a year not only support this Bill but make it more important that the Home Office should have greater powers? If they can make £7 on one book, total fines of £1,700 in a year are just childish.

Orders of the Day — Obscene Publications Bill (29 Mar 1957)

Brigadier Sir Harry Mackeson: I listened with particular interest to one part of the speech of the hon. Member for Ince (Mr. T. Brown), namely, his reference to subsidence in the mining industries. I do not know very much about the subject because our problems in Kent are much smaller, but this is a vital problem in many parts of the country and I hope that the action which has been requested will be taken. I want to...

Orders of the Day — Queen's Speech: Debate on the Address (9 Nov 1956)

Brigadier Sir Harry Mackeson: The right hon. Gentleman is no doubt correct; but we must have something like we had during the war. We all know some good friends of ours who could be got together for the purpose. This wants doing quickly and urgently. I know that this is not a popular subject in Government Departments, for each Government Department not unnaturally likes to have its own little P.R.O. section and hates the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Belgian Trawler (Arrest and Escape) (18 Apr 1956)

Orders of the Day — BRITISH TRANSPORT COMMISSION (No. 2) BILL (By Order) (13 Mar 1956)

Brigadier Sir Harry Mackeson: I shall delay the House for only two or three minutes. First, since my hon. Friend the Member for Dover (Mr. Arbuthnot) is absent on a Parliamentary delegation, I want to point out that the Kent County Council has lodged a petition against the Bill upon the ground that it interferes with the county council's rights in certain property. The site which affects me most is in the area of...

Cyprus (5 Dec 1955)

Brigadier Sir Harry Mackeson: I wish to thank the right hon. and learned Member for Montgomery (Mr. C. Davies) for what he said about the less fortunate remarks of the right hon. Member for West Bromwich (Mr. Dugdale), and to leave it at that. I am sorry that the hon. Member for Swindon (Mr. F. Noel-Baker) is not in his place, because I thought that it was brave and generous of him to speak about the Greek Press knowing,...

Cyprus (5 Dec 1955)

Brigadier Sir Harry Mackeson: I believe that in this sort of riots—in my experience of them, and I have seen some of them—in front we find youths and women and one or two of the brave chaps, while the real trouble makers are at the back—the older chaps—who are really getting down to things, stirring others up to violent action. The real duty which we face now is that of finding a political and diplomatic answer...

Brigadier Sir Harry Mackeson: Like the hon. Member for Rotherham (Mr. Jack Jones), I have not had the opportunity of taking part in detailed consideration of this Bill, but as one who has been always interested in wild birds I should like to congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Aberdeen, South (Lady Tweedsmuir) and her hon. Friends and all hon. Members on this Bill, which I consider to be excellent. I must disagree...

Orders of the Day — Supply: Airfields (Food Productions) (4 Mar 1954)
