Orders of the Day — National Fire Services Regulations (Indemnity) Bill (1 Aug 1944)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: I am sorry, I had forgotten that statement, but if that is so, perhaps the Attorney-General will refer us to the time and place when that statement was made. Now with regard to future Regulations, it is very important that the House should not forgo the right to insist that every precaution is taken that this does not happen again, and I noted the particular method of assurance suggested by...

India (28 Jul 1944)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: On the last occasion when the Indian question came before this House, the discussion was, necessarily, of a somewhat perfunctory character, but it was promised that a full Debate would take place later. Up to now, those associated with me have hesitated to ask for the fulfilment of this promise, because we recognised the extreme delicacy of the situation, and we felt that a Debate might...

India (28 Jul 1944)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: I was not pressing the analogy too far. I was trying to make only one point, and I must not be taken as assuming that the two cases are on all fours.

Oral Answers to Questions — National Fire Service Regulations (Laying) (27 Jul 1944)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: (by Private Notice) asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he can now state what steps, if any, will be required, to rectify the position relating to the Regulations which were not laid before the House at the proper time.

Oral Answers to Questions — National Fire Service Regulations (Laying) (27 Jul 1944)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: When will the text of the Bill be available to Members?

Oral Answers to Questions — House of Commons Chamber (Noise) (26 Jul 1944)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Works whether his attention has been drawn to the disturbance caused to Debates in the House of Commons Chamber by the noise in the Lobby when the exit door at the bar end is open; and whether, during the Recess, he can take any steps, by double doors or otherwise, to reduce this inconvenience.

National Fire Service Regulations (Laying) (26 Jul 1944)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: While the House, of course, must treat as a very serious matter any failure to conform to the arrangements made by Statute, it is generally, shall we say, friendly towards a Minister who comes frankly before us in a white sheet and admits his errors. I am sure that the House will accord that friendly consideration to the right hon. Gentleman in this matter. I would like to ask two questions....

National Fire Service Regulations (Laying) (26 Jul 1944)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: I put the point in the first instance whether any individuals had been damnified by acts on behalf of the Home Office, under these Regulations. Perhaps my right hon. Friend will look into that point and be prepared to answer a question next week? It is one of considerable importance.

Housing (Scotland) Bill (19 Jul 1944)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: Is the right hon. Gentleman just making a declaration of his intentions in an administrative capacity? Is he suggesting that there is no provision made in this particular Bill?

Housing (Scotland) Bill (19 Jul 1944)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: In listening to my right hon. Friend I felt how much he and the Government must wish they were in the position of the small child who returned from church, where she had heard the first chapter of Genesis read. Laying out all her dolls on a table, she put a cloth over them and said, "God said, 'Let there be dollies' and there were dollies." She seized the cloth and the dollies appeared. If my...

Housing (Scotland) Bill (19 Jul 1944)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: At present no local authority can obtain a subsidy for building a house for anybody unless he belongs to certain specified categories and I do not think that under present conditions, with men coming home from the war, the House can take any exception to an alteration in that law. In the second place, the Bill seeks to get rid of some of the delay in acquiring land which is caused by the...

Housing (Scotland) Bill (19 Jul 1944)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: As I understand it, that is independent of this Bill. However sufficient those 100,000 houses might be if they were distributed properly over the whole country, it is clear that, whereas there may be ample land for housing in certain parts of the country, there is not ample land in other parts. It is for that purpose mainly, as I understand it, that this Bill is required. The third main...

Housing (Scotland) Bill (19 Jul 1944)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: My right hon. Friend has not quite answered the conundrum which I put. In the Preamble to the English Bill, the figures of 100,000 and 200,000 are for the local authorities only, but the Minister spoke of the 300,000 covering the whole production of housing. I should like that point cleared up.

Supplementary Vote of Credit, 1944: Expenditure Arising Out of the War (18 Jul 1944)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: I imagine that the Committee will accord the Chancellor of the Exchequer this Vote of Credit with its accustomed unanimity, and that Debate on the matter will not be long protracted, but it would be a mistake for persons in the country to assume from the celerity of this procedure, that what we are doing is not a carefully thought-out attitude and a deliberate intention. The fact is that now...

Oral Answers to Questions — British and German Civilians (Exchange) (12 Jul 1944)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: The House will have listened with satisfaction to the statement made by the Foreign Secretary. I would like to ask whether negotiations are proceeding, or whether the right hon. Gentleman is in a position to say anything about negotiations for a similar exchange with the Japanese.

Oral Answers to Questions — Civil Defence: Lighting Restrictions (6 Jul 1944)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: Will my right hon. Friend remember that flying bombs have no eyes, and that so far as they are concerned the public will benefit by the lifting of the black-out far more than they will lose?

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill (30 Jun 1944)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: Before the Chancellor comes to his peroration on the passage of the Third Reading, may I put to him this question? The House was interested in the controversy between my hon. Friend the Member for Chesterfield (Mr. Benson) and the Chancellor. On this Bill, the House could not follow entirely the merits of the reply which the Chancellor made just now. Would it be possible for the Chancellor to...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill (30 Jun 1944)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: I am referring not so much to the last point that lie made as to the point that was raised concerning the £150,000,000.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 33. — (Tax avoidance.) (28 Jun 1944)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: I do not think there is any real difference of opinion in any part of the House, on this matter. We are all agreed that tax avoidance with the object of evading a burden which is falling upon others shall be stopped, and I think we are all agreed that if there are perfectly innocent people, engaged in a transaction for ordinary purposes, they shall not be penalised by the decisions in this...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 33. — (Tax avoidance.) (28 Jun 1944)

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: And make it retrospective?
