Orders of the Day — Disarmament (10 Jun 1958)

Sir Isaac Pitman: A great deal has been said by the right hon. and learned Gentleman the Member for Montgomery (Mr. C. Davies) with which I greatly agree, and so I do not wish to refer at the very beginning of my remarks to those parts of his speech with which I disagree. I want rather to emphasise, as he has said, the very high importance that ought to be attached to what the Minister of Defence said towards...

Orders of the Day — Disarmament (10 Jun 1958)

Sir Isaac Pitman: That being so, I cannot understand why the hon. Gentleman does not rejoice at what the Minister of Defence says about getting this new authority, which will have this supervision and powers of enforcement.

Orders of the Day — New Clause. — (Teachers, &C., Not to Be Disqualified for Membership of Certain Local Authorities.) (7 May 1958)

Sir Isaac Pitman: We have it on very wise authority, Biblical authority, that No man can serve two masters. In the Ministry of Housing and Local Government, recently, an earlier example of the Minister of Education has been followed in forming an organisation and methods branch. There, too, will be found acceptance of the principle that power resides only in one place. In the Civil Service every civil servant...

Orders of the Day — New Clause. — (Teachers, &C., Not to Be Disqualified for Membership of Certain Local Authorities.) (7 May 1958)

Sir Isaac Pitman: Is it at all possible for county councils to re-phrase their appointments and the powers given to excepted districts in order that these will not come within the mischief of the 1933 Act?

Orders of the Day — Local Government Bill: Clause 1. — (General Grants.) (5 May 1958)

Sir Isaac Pitman: It has been going on for much longer than that, even before the 1948 equalisation grant was discussed. This question of principle has been put strongly to a succession of Ministers on both sides of the House and to my certain knowledge it is only because of the difficulties of getting called in the debate that it has not been put more frequently tonight.

Oral Answers to Questions — Law of the Sea (Geneva Conference) (23 Apr 1958)

Sir Isaac Pitman: asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs to what extent it is his intention to claim exclusive use of the Continental Shelf in the North Sea and English Channel as proposed in Article 68 of the International Law Commission Report at the Geneva Conference, and to lease the oil-drilling rights in such greatly increased British submarine territory; and whether he is satisfied that this...

Oral Answers to Questions — Law of the Sea (Geneva Conference) (23 Apr 1958)

Sir Isaac Pitman: I should like to ask the Minister of State about this because there are not only our claims but those of France in the English Channel. I understand that a document, No. 21, has been agreed, as to the surroundings of one mile distance from any such drilling operation. It is perfectly clear that the English Channel could and might be completely blocked to shipping by reason of the exploitation...

Oral Answers to Questions — Law of the Sea (Geneva Conference) (23 Apr 1958)

Sir Isaac Pitman: asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs to what extent, at the Geneva Conference on the Law of the Sea, the Anglo-Dutch amendment to the proposed articles on the Continental Shelf whereby states shall have the right to tunnel in the seabed, implies the construction of artificial islands from which those tunnels may be entered in extraterritorial waters.

Oral Answers to Questions — Law of the Sea (Geneva Conference) (23 Apr 1958)

Sir Isaac Pitman: In this whole question of the seabed and Continental Shelf, has consideration been given to getting the United Nations, or some other non-national body, to control these areas? Is not it deplorable that there should be an expansion of nationalism into areas in which nationalism has never been recognised? Is not that the fundamental problem?

Oral Answers to Questions — Antarctica (19 Feb 1958)

Sir Isaac Pitman: asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs (1) to what extent it is now the policy of Her Majesty's Government that the British and other Governments concerned should seek agreement for a transfer of the sovereignty of their respective parts of the Continent of Antarctica to a single sovereign authority, if suitably initiated by the United Nations organisation, for the government of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Antarctica (19 Feb 1958)

Sir Isaac Pitman: As between the question of principle—whether Her Majesty's Government desire this policy or not—and the difficulties of the machinery, may we take it that it is our policy that the thing should be achieved if it can be achieved?

Bank Rate Tribunal (Report) (3 Feb 1958)

Sir Isaac Pitman: It is twelve years since I resigned from the honourable position of a Director of the Bank of England to enter this very honourable House. It was from the corresponding seat on the opposite side of the Chamber that I made my maiden speech on the nationalisation of the Bank of England. Perhaps I might, therefore, be allowed to contribute something this evening by way, as it were, of the...

Bank Rate Tribunal (Report) (3 Feb 1958)

Sir Isaac Pitman: If the hon. Member will allow me to interrupt, may I say that I do not know whether the word "feasible" carried with it also the moral issue, which is how I read the paragraph. Lord Kindersley went to discuss this because it was a relevant problem to be discussed. It was quite right to go to the Governor to discuss it and to say that the general decision was that it was not feasible. They use...

Foreign Affairs (20 Dec 1957)

Sir Isaac Pitman: I believe that the speech of the right hon. Member for Ebbw Vale (Mr. Bevan) would have made a far greater contribution had he made any positive proposal as to the direction in which he wishes this Government to lead. Also, it would have been very much more effective if he had taken note of the degree of insecurity which exists in the world today. There is no mortal point in making the...

Foreign Affairs (20 Dec 1957)

Sir Isaac Pitman: If we are all in favour of world government, then let us consider the first few practical steps which may be taken and taken simultaneously, in that direction. We ought first to have that solemn declaration of our aims, and I think we ought next to think about a permanent United Nations force, if need be on a very small scale; for instance, in accordance with the proposals for such a...

Foreign Affairs (20 Dec 1957)

Sir Isaac Pitman: It started before the Wars of the Roses, and that is one of the points we have to bear in mind that such new policies evolve. After all, there are also two other ways in which we can have world government, as my right hon. Friend the Member for Kelvingrove (Mr. Walter Elliot) has said on another occasion. We could well get world govern- ment if there were to be a major war between one or...

Foreign Affairs (20 Dec 1957)

Sir Isaac Pitman: I do not agree about the second half of that intervention, but I thank him very much for the first half. I have been talking about a permanent United Nations force, and I agree that any such movement should start inevitably and rightly round the existing United Nations, but this is an advisory body at present, and it needs vitalisation before it can take on what is a governmental job, not for...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Training Colleges (Students and Grants) (5 Dec 1957)

Sir Isaac Pitman: asked the Minister of Education to what extent he plans to improve the maintenance grants, both in amount and in duration, so that mature applicants may be willing to become students at the three training colleges for technical teachers and the target of 700 per annum recommended by the Dr. Willis Jackson Committee attained.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Training Colleges (Students and Grants) (5 Dec 1957)

Sir Isaac Pitman: I am sure that the House and the nation will be very grateful for that news. Will my hon. Friend bear in mind the need to cover the period between the end of training and the taking of the new post in the autumn? These candidates for teaching find it very expensive to live with no income between those points. I hope that the maintenance grants may cover that period as well as the period of...
