NATIONAL GALLERY AND TATE GALLERY BILL [Lords]: Clause 4. — (Powers of Lending Exercisable by National Gallery Trustees and Tate Gallery Trustees.) (10 Nov 1954)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: I do not want to divide the Committee against the advice of my hon. Friend, and I will not do so, but there was one flaw in his argument, if I may put it like that, which I do not quite understand, but which will be of great relevance to the debate on other Amendments. He suggested that the trustees, being trustworthy, did not need advice from the House of Commons. What, I then ask him, is...

NATIONAL GALLERY AND TATE GALLERY BILL [Lords]: Clause 4. — (Powers of Lending Exercisable by National Gallery Trustees and Tate Gallery Trustees.) (10 Nov 1954)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: May I ask the right hon. Gentleman for clarification of his Amendment? If he looks at it again, he will see that it reads very strangely. It gives permission for pictures to be exhibited abroad for more than five years. Clearly he does not mean that; he means the opposite. Assuming that that is the case, may I put a further question? Would he include pictures which were exhibited in...

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Supply: Supersonic Bangs (Claims) (15 Nov 1954)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: Can the Minister explain why it is that aircraft operating from coastal airports cannot he required to produce these bangs over the sea instead of over the land?

Debate on the Address [First Day] (30 Nov 1954)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: The width of debate permitted on this one occasion of the year will, I hope, make it possible for me to raise a subject which is of permanent importance but which is particularly urgent after the events of last week-end. I refer to the heavy damage done to our coasts by the recent gales, the likelihood of damage being repeated and the urgent necessity for some steps to be taken for this...

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Coast Protection (Exchequer Grants) (14 Dec 1954)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government (1) on what basis he assesses the capacity of a local authority to pay for new coast protection works; and whether he will increase the Exchequer grant towards such works; (2) whether he will pay from Exchequer funds the full cost of restoring the sea defences damaged in the recent gales.

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Coast Protection (Exchequer Grants) (14 Dec 1954)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: Is my right hon. Friend aware that the gales which have caused the recent damage are not exceptional but are likely to recur annually, and are putting an intolerable charge upon local authorities? Does he agree that coast protection works should be mainly a national charge and should not fall upon small boroughs and individuals who are defending the whole country in defending their own properties?

British Army (Children's Educational Facilities) (3 Feb 1955)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: I beg to give notice that, on going into Committee of Supply on the Army Estimates, I shall call attention to the provision of educational facilities for the children of Regular officers and men, and move a Resolution.

Orders of the Day — Colonial Development and Welfare Bill: U.N.I.C.E.F. (United Kingdom Contribution) (7 Feb 1955)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: Before my hon. Friend the Joint Under-Secretary replies, I should like in two minutes to echo from these back benches the reasonable plea which the right hon. Member for Grimsby (Mr. Younger) has made. Ultimately, the contributions by our Government to international agencies must depend on our own public opinion, and there is no question that of all the international agencies under the...

Orders of the Day — Children and Young Persons (Harmful Publications) Bill (22 Feb 1955)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: I am very glad that the hon. Member for Cardiff, West (Mr. G. Thomas) ended his speech with a homily to publishers, and that my right hon. Friend the Minister of Education also intervened to say a few words on the same subject, because I must disclose to the House at once that I am a publisher of children's illustrated books. but not of horror comics. I have an obvious interest in this...

Orders of the Day — Children and Young Persons (Harmful Publications) Bill (22 Feb 1955)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: The hon. Member for Coventry, North (Mr. Edelman) knows very well that children do not easily make moral judgments themselves. Raffles is a very good example. To most of us, Raffles is a "good" criminal, and he might easily be imitated by children given no other protection. We allow Raffles, and I think rightly so, but in general, we should distinguish between criminals who are represented as...

Orders of the Day — Children and Young Persons (Harmful Publications) Bill (22 Feb 1955)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: Five shillings.

Orders of the Day — Children and Young Persons (Harmful Publications) Bill (22 Feb 1955)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: It is out of print.

Children's Educational Facilities (8 Mar 1955)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: I beg to move, to leave out from "That" to the end of the Question, and to add instead thereof: this House, while welcoming the education provided in Army schools overseas for the children of serving officers and men, urges Her Majesty's Government to make better provision for the education of such children in the United Kingdom. In raising the subject of the education of the children of...

Children's Educational Facilities (8 Mar 1955)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: In order that the hon. Member should not have a wrong impression, I should say that I did not in any way want to suggest that the existing secondary boarding schools in Germany should be done away with. All I suggested was that instead of building new ones in Germany at colossal expense they should be built in this country.

Children's Educational Facilities (8 Mar 1955)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: With great respect to the hon. Member for Fulham, East (Mr. M. Stewart), it is easier to be a back bencher or even a Front Bencher on his side of the House than it is to be a Front Bencher on this side. I have no inside knowledge of this matter, and I do not want to have any. Presumably there are wheels within wheels, because this matter involves not only the Army and the other Services, but...

Orders of the Day — United Nations (Technical Assistance) (16 Mar 1955)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: Debates upon this subject are beginning to have rather a familiar pattern. More or less the same hon. Members on both sides get up one after the other and ask the Government to increase their contributions to these Specialised Agencies and to alter the methods of making those contributions. There can be very little discussion upon the use to which these moneys are put, and it would not be in...

Orders of the Day — United Nations (Technical Assistance) (16 Mar 1955)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: I bow to your Ruling, Sir Rhys, but surely it is relevant to the contribution of funds to the United Nations that we should be aware in this country of the purpose for which those contributions are made. I will, of course, leave that point. We were probably right to use our vote against setting up a special United Nations fund for economic development, since the Americans refused to come in....

Orders of the Day — United Nations (Technical Assistance) (16 Mar 1955)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: I was talking about non-political work.

Orders of the Day — Clause 1. — (Works to Which This Act Applies.) (24 Mar 1955)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: I should like to make one or two points against the Amendment before we have a Division on it. When I spoke in the Second Reading debate I disclosed at once my interest, as I do again now, in that I am a book publisher and include, among other books, children's illustrated books. It might, therefore, be thought that I should be in favour of including newspapers in the general ban which...

Orders of the Day — Clause 1. — (Works to Which This Act Applies.) (24 Mar 1955)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: I was making that very point. Are we interpreting "stories" in the journalistic sense or in the ordinary sense that we use in common parlance?
