Oral Answers to Questions — Merchant Shipping (Pilot Ladders) Rules 1965 (29 Apr 1970)

Mr Emanuel Shinwell: Are we to understand that disagreement was expressed by the Chamber of Shipping on behalf of shipowners in general on the ground of cost, and is not it shocking that the pilots' lives should be in jeopardy because of minor expenditure on the provision of the necessary equipment?

Oral Answers to Questions — Civil Service: Minister without Portfolio (Speech) (23 Apr 1970)

Mr Emanuel Shinwell: Is my right hon. Friend aware that we applaud the efforts of the Minister without Portfolio and that if he goes on talking as he does we shall be delighted? May I also take the opportunity to congratulate my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister on his success in Scotland with the Trades Union Congress? Has he noted that in spite of his success the congress passed a resolution by a large...

Education Bill (22 Apr 1970)

Mr Emanuel Shinwell: With great respect, will you accept a point of order from this side of the House, Mr. Speaker? I understand that you have given a decision, having listened to the submission of the hon. Lady the Member for Finchley (Mrs. Thatcher)—[Interruption.] Mind your own business.

Education Bill (22 Apr 1970)

Mr Emanuel Shinwell: I listened to what the hon. Lady said and hon. Members opposite might listen to me. Since then several legal luminaries have addressed you, Mr. Speaker, including some who regard themselves as experts. You have given your decision, Mr. Speaker. May I ask you whether we might adopt a very simple expedient? Having given your Ruling, let the House decide whether it accepts Mr. Speaker's decision...

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Parliamentary Delegations (Allowances) (21 Apr 1970)

Mr Emanuel Shinwell: Since the delegates to the Council of Europe and Western European Union are selected primarily and exclusively because they support our entry into the Common Market—

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Parliamentary Delegations (Allowances) (21 Apr 1970)

Mr Emanuel Shinwell: —is there any reason why we should increase their allowances? In any case, do we get any value for the money we spend?

Business of the House (16 Apr 1970)

Mr Emanuel Shinwell: Why have we heard nothing about the Merchant Shipping Bill, which is coming from the other place? Has my right hon. Friend taken into account the representations made by the seamen?

Middle East (13 Apr 1970)

Mr Emanuel Shinwell: The right hon. Gentleman's scheme of pacification is intensely interesting, but he has left out one very important item—the Russian technicians and advisers in Egypt. Are they to remain while negotiations proceed, particularly as Russia is one of the four Powers? Is it not incomprehensible that one of the four Powers should have vast numbers of technicians and advisers in the Arab...

Middle East (13 Apr 1970)

Mr Emanuel Shinwell: I agree with my right hon. Friend that no one can win this war in the long run. There is no victory for either side. Peace or security is the only possible way out. But my right hon. Friend is wrong when he says that the Arabs could suffer many defeats whereas Israel could not suffer one. For 2,000 years they have had many defeats, but they have survived.

Middle East (13 Apr 1970)

Mr Emanuel Shinwell: I gathered that the hon. Member for Westbury (Mr. Walters) was trying to provoke me. At any rate, that was my impression from one observation that he made. If that was his intention, he was just wasting his time. I thought I gave him a proper hiding the last time we engaged in debate—so much so that he ran away whining, and then demanded apologies. The hon. Member is the sort of Member who...

Middle East (13 Apr 1970)

Mr Emanuel Shinwell: I willingly gave way because I understand that in the House there is a preference for back-bench Members against Privy Councillors. But in any event I did not understand what my hon. Friend said.

Middle East (13 Apr 1970)

Mr Emanuel Shinwell: I hope that my hon. Friend does not intend to repeat what she said, because I want to get on with my speech. I referred to the scheme for pacification put forward by the right hon. Member for Kinross and West Perthshire, but there is one item to which he did not direct attention—the presence of the Soviet Union in the Arab countries. It is remarkable that there has been no condemnation of...

Middle East (13 Apr 1970)

Mr Emanuel Shinwell: That is why the Russians are in the Middle East, and for no other purpose. It ought to be stated.

Middle East (13 Apr 1970)

Mr Emanuel Shinwell: I cannot help it if my hon. Friend supports the Soviet Union and Communist ideology. I do not. I dislike it intensely. I recognise that the Soviet Union is not merely out for mischief. It is in a dangerous state of mind and is ready to adopt any possible measure, short of war, to achieve its ends. During the defence debate I said that the Russians did not need war. They have gained almost ...

Middle East (13 Apr 1970)

Mr Emanuel Shinwell: My right hon. Friend the Member for Belper referred to the question whether the Arabs hate the Jews, and he denied that this was so. Let us accept that. I am not arguing about it. I made inquiries myself among Israelis to find out whether they hated the Arabs. There was not a word from them except one of friendliness. I was told by the Secretary-General of The Histadrut that 100,000 Arabs...

Middle East (13 Apr 1970)

Mr Emanuel Shinwell: I am not saying that the hon. Lady should get out. I am saying that the Russians should get out. I wish that the hon. Lady would not interrupt me: it breaks the thread of my discourse. The first thing is for the Government to be prepared to say to the Soviet Union, either directly or through our United Nations representative, "Get out of the Middle East; get back to your own quarters; deal...

Oral Answers to Questions — Swedish Prime Minister (Visit) (9 Apr 1970)

Mr Emanuel Shinwell: In his conversations with the Swedish Prime Minister, did my right hon. Friend explain, as reported in an interview with the Daily Express, that if Sweden associated itself with the E.E.C. it would be on the clear understanding that on no account would it allow itself to be deprived of full control of foreign affairs and defence? Am I to understand that that is the position of the United Kingdom?

Business of the House (9 Apr 1970)

Mr Emanuel Shinwell: Mr. Shinwell rose—

Business of the House (9 Apr 1970)

Mr Emanuel Shinwell: May I ask my right hon. Friend whether he can say when the Merchant Shipping Bill will come from another place and be debated in this House and whether the Government have taken into account the serious representations made by the National Union of Seamen about the penal Clauses in the Bill?

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Military Equipment (Security) (8 Apr 1970)

Mr Emanuel Shinwell: Why cannot the Foreign Secretary come clean on this issue? He always answers Questions on this matter by talking about negotiations when we do not know the nature of those negotiations. Surely the best way to take full account of the situation, to use the hon. Gentleman's words, is to prevent Libya getting the tanks. Is he aware that there is a good deal of feeling in this House against...
