Oral Answers to Questions — Civil Service (W.L.a. Candidates) (5 Dec 1944)

Mr Thomas Naylor: asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if members of the W.L.A. are to be allowed to enter for the Civil Service examinations on the same terms as and concurrently with members of the Forces.

Oral Answers to Questions — Civil Service (W.L.a. Candidates) (5 Dec 1944)

Mr Thomas Naylor: Is there any possibility of that decision being reconsidered?

Orders of the Day — King's Speech: Debate on the Address (30 Nov 1944)

Mr Thomas Naylor: The hon. and gallant Member for West Leeds (Major Adams) has raised an interesting question with which I would like to deal, but I hope it will be understood that in no way can I speak with authority on behalf of the Members of my party, although I think my views would coincide with theirs if the issue were raised. I would like to say to him that his appeal comes rather late in the day, when...

Orders of the Day — King's Speech: Debate on the Address (30 Nov 1944)

Mr Thomas Naylor: The stage is set for the battle, and even policies have been promulgated, which in the Army would be referred to as strategy. All that has been done following Debates in the House and outside the House, concerning the policies of the two great parties of the State. I wish to say something about the Prime Minister's speech yesterday. He is always very meticulous, when he proposes a question to...

Orders of the Day — King's Speech: Debate on the Address (30 Nov 1944)

Mr Thomas Naylor: Surely the hon. Member does not expect me to keep in mind chapter and verse of all the books I have read, especially at my age. But he has disclosed the fact that apparently he has not read this book. Possibly other hon. Members cannot name the book in which these words appear. It happens to be a book that ought to have been read by every Member of the Conservative Party. I will give the hon....

Orders of the Day — TOWN AND COUNTRY PLANNING (Re-Committed) BILL (25 Oct 1944)

Mr Thomas Naylor: I approach this question from a point of view which is somewhat different from that of hon. Members on the other side. It has always seemed to me that no one has a right to complain if, by the incidence of war, he suffers personal loss. We all expect to lose something as a result of war conditions. Many instances might be quoted of various classes of people who, indeed, have no hope of...

Orders of the Day — TOWN AND COUNTRY PLANNING (Re-Committed) BILL (25 Oct 1944)

Mr Thomas Naylor: A great deal. Two and two make four; that is a calculation, not a guess—

Orders of the Day — TOWN AND COUNTRY PLANNING (Re-Committed) BILL (25 Oct 1944)

Mr Thomas Naylor: If the hon. and gallant Member makes it five, he is guessing and guessing wrong. My feeling is that, in this particular instance, he is dealing with the case of another estimate of 80 per cent. Was that a calculation or a guess?

Orders of the Day — TOWN AND COUNTRY PLANNING (Re-Committed) BILL (25 Oct 1944)

Mr Thomas Naylor: My reply is that the 30 per cent. is not the calculation of one experienced man, but that of a large number of men, who have come to the conclusion that, so far as the future could be pierced, 30 per cent. represents, roughly, an average of the difference between the 1939 value and the value under reconstruction. I am glad the right hon. Member for Devonport (Mr. Hore-Belisha) has come in. I...

Orders of the Day — TOWN AND COUNTRY PLANNING (Re-Committed) BILL (25 Oct 1944)

Mr Thomas Naylor: He was a Tory champion.

Orders of the Day — TOWN AND COUNTRY PLANNING (Re-Committed) BILL (25 Oct 1944)

Mr Thomas Naylor: After that neighbourly exchange of views between the hon. Members, perhaps I may be allowed to proceed. I rather misrepresented the right hon. Gentleman when I said he was a Tory democrat, because he was a Liberal. But that makes it worse. To have been a National Liberal, and now to have become the champion of the Tory landowners is a metamorphosis which will want a lot of explanation when...

Orders of the Day — TOWN AND COUNTRY PLANNING (Re-Committed) BILL (25 Oct 1944)

Mr Thomas Naylor: I ask hon. Members opposite, who are pleading for this Amendment, to remind themselves of the losses that have been incurred, for which there is no compensation whatever—losses of home and comfort, the disability of being transferred from one's own city and being billeted upon strangers. All these are losses just as important as the losses in finance, which have been explained in...

Orders of the Day — TOWN AND COUNTRY PLANNING (Re-Committed) BILL (25 Oct 1944)

Mr Thomas Naylor: I wish I were Portia. The answer to that is that the offer has been made, just as Bassanio made the offer to Shylock of three times the value—the offer has been on the 1939 value, up to 30 per cent. above according to circumstances and the hon. and learned Member opposite refuses. Portia said: The Jew shall have all justice. If we give justice to hon. Members opposite, all we need give is...

Orders of the Day — TOWN AND COUNTRY PLANNING (Re-Committed) BILL (25 Oct 1944)

Mr Thomas Naylor: I am surprised that the hon. and gallant Member should try to introduce a question of that kind merely because I quoted Shakespeare. I am not making any other allusions except to a character, more or less fictional, produced by the greatest dramatist of any age. Portia said: The Jew shall have all justice. And Shylock said: Most rightful judge. Then Portia said: If thou dost shedOne drop of...

Orders of the Day — Clause 3. — (Initial report of Commissions as to redistribution.) (12 Oct 1944)

Mr Thomas Naylor: I apologise to the Committee for having only just come in and not having had the advantage of listening to the discussion, but I came in soon enough to hear the speech of my hon. Friend the Member for Clackmannan and Stirling (Mr. Woodburn). I do not think he is right when he says that this is a matter for the major Measure that will come after the Boundary Commissions have reported....

Orders of the Day — Clause 3. — (Initial report of Commissions as to redistribution.) (12 Oct 1944)

Mr Thomas Naylor: I said it was a long time since I left school, and I am not clear about the actual period. Whether it was one of the Edwards or one of the Charles's, I am not sure. All monarchs of England have in the past been very fond of their revenues. To continue my story, the City merchants were so loyal to the King and his extravagance, that they provided him with the money that he required to carry...

Orders of the Day — Clause 3. — (Initial report of Commissions as to redistribution.) (12 Oct 1944)

Mr Thomas Naylor: As a mark of his appreciation of what the City merchants did for him, the King gave them representation in the House of Commons. The point, I take it, is not so much whether the City of London should have two Members or none. I am willing to concede it representation to the extent of one Member. Our objection is that to give two Members, when the resident population is not much more than...

Orders of the Day — House of Commons (Redistri Bution of Seats) Bill (10 Oct 1944)

Mr Thomas Naylor: May I put a question to my right hon. Friend on that point? Will he give the House the reason why the City of London is allowed to have two Members? Is it not the case that it is not on the grounds on which my right hon. Friend now defends that representation?

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Fiscal Policy (26 Sep 1944)

Mr Thomas Naylor: asked the Prime Minister if he will give an assurance that the universal abolition of protective tariffs on imports, for which the post-war readjustments of production throughout the world presents a favourable opportunity, will be proposed or agreed to by the British Government in a future international conference as a basis of agreement on fiscal policy.

Flying Bomb Attacks: Prime Minister's Review (6 Jul 1944)

Mr Thomas Naylor: The Prime Minister has already stated that provision is being made for mothers of young children to be evacuated; might I ask him whether he is aware that mothers of the older children are not provided for although in many cases they are willing to go with the older children and want to go? Some of them have made application for accommodation in reception areas, and in a large number of cases...
