Oral Answers to Questions — ST. Vincent: Arab Boycott of Israel (British Firms) (10 Dec 1963)

Mr John Paton: May I ask the Minister whether he will accept that this condemnation, although a little belated, is none the less welcome? I hope that this condemnation by the Government will stiffen the backs of some of these boneless wonders who seem to be running some of the greatest commercial institutions in the country. As the Arabs are not likely to cease these activities, will the Minister consider...

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Post-War Credits (10 Nov 1959)

Mr John Paton: Even if that is so, does not it present the Chancellor with the easily identifiable category for which he asks in dealing with such matters of hardship?

Road Transport Drivers (Working Hours) (10 Jun 1959)

Mr John Paton: I express my regret to the Parliamentary Secretary and to the officials of the House for detaining them at this relatively late hour, but the subject I have to raise tonight is one of very great importance, not only regionally, for the region with which I am particularly concerned, but also nationally.
