Commonwealth (Racial Relations) (6 May 1949)

Mr Frederick Skinnard: As I listened to the eloquent speeches of my hon. Friends the Members for Maldon (Mr. Driberg) and West Leyton (Mr. Sorensen), I had it within my heart to wish that the Debate had not taken place at the tail end of a very busy week and in a comparatively thin House and that we could disregard precedent and tradition and send it out over the radio. Then the millions of citizens who are...

Commonwealth (Racial Relations) (6 May 1949)

Mr Frederick Skinnard: Yes. That is a state of affairs which I am sure we deplore equally. Where do our powers lie with regard to the most obvious and distressing case of racial discrimination within the Commonwealth at the moment? I have looked into the question of the law with as much care as my hon. Friend the Member for Maldon, and he knows that I differ from him slightly on this point. Primarily it is not a...

Commonwealth (Racial Relations) (6 May 1949)

Mr Frederick Skinnard: Privately, as my hon. Friend says, because most of the good work is done by just that private family association. A great many of the rather wonderful decisions which have recently been arrived at were the result of private conversations as between brethren, over a considerable space of time. I am trying to stress the family attitude of the nations within the Commonwealth. We do not expect...

Commonwealth (Racial Relations) (6 May 1949)
