Foreign Affairs (18 Jul 1968)

Mr Francis Noel-Baker: In complying with your request, Mr. Speaker, I am sorry that I shall be unable to follow the thoughtful and constructive speech of the hon. Member for Cheltenham (Mr. Dodds-Parker)—I would like to call him my hon. Friend— to which we all listened with appreciation. The only point on which I disagree with him is that I do not believe that to announce a delay in the date of withdrawal from...

Foreign Affairs (18 Jul 1968)

Mr Francis Noel-Baker: I certainly had not suggested that. Possibly the particular comment in question is better left now where it was. This raises the whole question of outside pressures on Greece. That in turn raises what is, in my opinion, the fundamental question that any Greek, or any friend of Greece, has to ask himself about the present situation. In my view, there are only two alternatives: the overthrow...

Foreign Affairs (18 Jul 1968)

Mr Francis Noel-Baker: No. I think that the Greek Government have followed the normal procedure on this, but it would be wrong to pursue that subject in this debate, because it has already been dealt with fully. I would only add that the Greek Government publicly and privately reject any responsibility for such actions. I am glad to say that they are now considering a new way to answer these allegations, and, if...

Foreign Affairs (18 Jul 1968)

Mr Francis Noel-Baker: I ask the Government what has happened to disarmament, and I put to them some facts which have caused me some anxiety and alarm. Since they came to power I do not recall that the British delegate has ever really tried to make the Committee of 18 carry out the General Assembly's instruction of December, 1963 to resume with energy and determination its negotiations on G.C.D. On the contrary,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Greece (8 Jul 1968)

Mr Francis Noel-Baker: I think my right hon. Friend is aware that I was in Athens this morning. Is my right hon. Friend aware that recent statements have caused widespread indignation and offence in Greece among critics of the Government and others and among British residents in that country? Although the present Government did not come to power by democratic methods—[Interruption]—is my hon. Friend aware...

Orders of the Day — Greek Political Prisoners (11 Apr 1968)

Mr Francis Noel-Baker: I apologise sincerely to my hon. Friend the Member for Croydon, South (Mr. Winnick). I made a mistake about the timetable for the debate and missed his speech. I am very sorry. I am about to make what may prove to be a highly unpopular speech with many of my colleagues and with large sections of the British public who, in my belief, have been misled by political speeches, by sections of...

Orders of the Day — Greek Political Prisoners (11 Apr 1968)

Mr Francis Noel-Baker: May I read the quotation from the Minister who gave a statement on 8th April? It states: There are international conventions and bodies competent on this subject as well as the Red Cross, and all facilities will be given to these Committees to make on-the-spot representations".

Orders of the Day — Greek Political Prisoners (11 Apr 1968)

Mr Francis Noel-Baker: Could I draw to the Minister's attention the fact that a number of reports by the International Red Cross have been released? I have them here and they are quite bulky. I believe it to be the intention of the Greek Government to give these facilities for further investigations and to release subsequent reports.

In addition, we have the categorical public statement by the Minister concerned in Athens on 8th April inviting further inspection of prisons by the International Committee of the Red Cross and offering to publish those...

Orders of the Day — TRADE DESCRIPTIONS (No. 2) BILL [Lords] (22 Feb 1968)

Mr Francis Noel-Baker: Will my right hon. Friend tell us what the Government's intentions are with regard to the powers they propose to take under Clause 8? Is my right hon. Friend aware that many people are worried about cigarette advertising and would like the Government to enforce labelling warning smokers against the danger of cigarette smoking? Will the Government be able to do this under this Clause?

Oral Answers to Questions — House of Commons: Automatic Telephone Exchange (11 Dec 1967)

Mr Francis Noel-Baker: Does my right hon. Friend not agree that it is false economy not to modernise this place? The present switchboard is not only grossly unfair to the operators using it, but it is grossly inefficient and a great burden on Members of Parliament, preventing them from doing their job properly.

Oral Answers to Questions — House of Commons: Prime Minister (Questions) (11 Dec 1967)

Mr Francis Noel-Baker: Would my right hon. Friend agree that there is a serious aspect to this Question applying to other Ministers as well? For example, since the last Recess there has been only one opportunity to ask Questions of the Foreign Secretary. Would he look at the whole position of Question Time with a view to increasing the opportunity for Members?

Oral Answers to Questions — Persian Gulf (7 Dec 1967)

Mr Francis Noel-Baker: Can my right hon. Friend now be more specific and say what plans are being made for a final withdrawal from this area? Can he give an assurance that the lessons of Aden and South Arabia have been learned and that the same tragic mistakes will not be repeated'?

South Arabia (29 Nov 1967)

Mr Francis Noel-Baker: My right hon. Friend has repeatedly stressed the desire of the British Government to associate the United Nations with the settlement in South Arabia. Can he say what has been done in that respect?
