United Nations Refugee Fund (9 Jul 1956)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he will instruct Her Majesty's representative on the United Nations to support the proposal of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees that the interest on the unused capital sum voted by the United Nations for the permanent settlement of Arab refugees from Palestine shall be diverted to the United Nations Refugee Fund.

Stateless Persons (Convention) (9 Jul 1956)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs when Her Majesty's Government intend to deposit the Instrument of ratification for the Convention Relating to the Status of Stateless Persons which was signed by the United Kingdom Plenipotentiary on 28th September, 1954.

Stateless Persons (Convention) (9 Jul 1956)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: Is it not a fact that, of the 22 nations which made this Convention, none has so far ratified it, although it was made in September, 1954, and since, as our own representative said at the time, there is no administrative difficulty so far as we are concerned, could not we set an example in ratification to the other 21 countries?

Orders of the Day — Members' Salaries (12 Jul 1956)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: I was one of those to whom the hon. Gentleman refers. I said that I would not draw it during the lifetime of the Parliament which voted it, and I did not draw it. I said at the Election, when I was frequently asked about this, that if I were re-elected I would draw it, and I now do.

Orders of the Day — Members' Salaries (12 Jul 1956)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: Would the hon. Gentleman allow me to intervene again? I entirely agree that there are many of us on this side of the House who could well do with an increase. I could myself. But I think it is right that we should share in the self-sacrifice which we are asking the country as a whole to accept.

Orders of the Day — Slum Clearance (Compensation) Bill: Clause 2. — (Modifications of Liabilities and Rights of Innkeepers as Such.) (18 Jul 1956)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: I have no hesitation in associating myself with the argument advanced by the hon. and learned Member for Northampton (Mr. Paget). I have no fear that in my so doing even the most political of the political correspondents will sense a revolt inside the Conservative Party. This is, indeed, a completely non-party matter, and when, in the House of Lords, this proposal was advanced, and...

Road Traffic Bill: New Clause B. — (Regulation of Cycle Racing on Highways.) (30 Jul 1956)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: In order to shorten the debate, I intend to put my argument in the form of four questions to my right hon. Friend. Firstly, is it a fact that since 1942, when the British League of Racing Cyclists was formed, there has not been a single serious accident involving a competitor, or spectator of a road cycling race? Secondly, do not the police already possess sufficient powers to prevent a form...

U.N. Refugee Fund (United Kingdom Contrebution) (2 Aug 1956)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: It was only a day or two before his death that the hon. Member for Newcastle-upon-Tyne, East (Mr. Blenkinsop) and myself had lunch with Dr. Goedhardt. He was no less ebullient than usual, and I did not think that he seemed to be in poor health. But I thought that his optimism was beginning to fade. It was as if his knuckles were wearing thin with rapping on the doors of the Treasuries of the...

Orders of the Day — Queen's Speech: Debate on the Address (8 Nov 1956)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: I, too, have been troubled on this point, but surely what we are getting at is that it is not that we acted outside the United Nations that causes us moral doubts but that we acted in such a way outside the United Nations as to cause the United Nations later to express its disapproval of what we had done.

Orders of the Day — Queen's Speech: Debate on the Address (13 Nov 1956)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: Had we got it?

Orders of the Day — Empire Settlement Bill (25 Jan 1957)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: Both the two last speeches came from members of the Overseas Migration Board. It is interesting to those who are not on the Board to have had an insight into its work. What surprised me was the enthusiasm of individuals like my hon. Friend the Member for Bury St. Edmunds (Mr. Aitken) and the hon. Member for Rugby (Mr. J. Johnson). That enthusiasm does not seem to have spilled over into the...

Orders of the Day — Empire Settlement Bill (25 Jan 1957)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: I am sure that the hon. Member would not suggest that the terms of reference of the Board prohibit it from volunteering suggestions of this nature. I wish to go into the problem, which he also mentioned, of the optimum rate of immigration to the old Dominions and Colonies. That is the central problem we have to face. The purpose of this Bill, I understand, is to establish the maximum sum...

Orders of the Day — Empire Settlement Bill: Clause 1. — (Extension of Period During Which Contributions May Be Made.) (30 Jan 1957)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: I wish to make two points, both of which concern the Overseas Migration Board. We are now saying goodbye, after five years, to the Empire Settlement Act of 1952. If precedent is followed we shall not have another general discussion on the subject of migration until 1962. In the interval, responsibility for forming general policy on migration falls upon the Overseas Migration Board. My first...

Orders of the Day — Empire Settlement Bill: Clause 1. — (Extension of Period During Which Contributions May Be Made.) (30 Jan 1957)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: This is a one-Clause Bill. I could have made this speech upon Third Reading, Sir Charles.

Orders of the Day — Empire Settlement Bill: Clause 1. — (Extension of Period During Which Contributions May Be Made.) (30 Jan 1957)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: I was under the impression that this was a discussion on the Question, "That the Clause stand part of the Bill."

Orders of the Day — Empire Settlement Bill: Clause 1. — (Extension of Period During Which Contributions May Be Made.) (30 Jan 1957)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: This is a one-Clause Bill, and when we are discussing the Question, "That the Clause stand part of the Bill" we are discussing the Bill. I submit that it is in order to raise any subject which concerns the operation of the Bill as a whole, as has been done by hon. Gentlemen on both sides of the Committee up to now.

Orders of the Day — Empire Settlement Bill: Clause 1. — (Extension of Period During Which Contributions May Be Made.) (30 Jan 1957)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: As I cannot more directly relate my observations to Clause 1, I will resume my seat, Sir Charles. I think that I have made the two points which I wished to make.

Orders of the Day — Homicide Bill (6 Feb 1957)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: The attention with which the House listened to the speech of the hon. Member for Eton and Slough (Mr. Brockway) showed how deeply he moved us with his personal experiences of prison and his closeness to the death cell. I do not think that anybody would resent the fact that he has put his personal dramatic style of oratory to this use, because we all feel somewhere in us that hanging is wrong....

Orders of the Day — Homicide Bill (6 Feb 1957)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: I agree with the hon. Member that the public is not particularly interested in the Bill, and that it was very interested in his Bill. In a later part of my speech I shall say that I do not believe that the Bill can be defended on grounds of logic.

Orders of the Day — Homicide Bill (6 Feb 1957)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: I think that it has been the experience of us all—it certainly has been mine—that there has been no public outcry against the Bill. I have not received one letter protesting against it. Is it not true that the results of our yearlong debate has been a movement towards abolition? This is part of the hon. Member's personal triumph; do not let him belittle what he has achieved. The public...
