Mr Meredith Titterington: May I congratulate the hon. Member for Kingston-upon-Thames (Mr. Boyd-Carpenter) on the spirit in which he has introduced these somewhat controversial matters?

I am disposed to feel that he is not actuated by any form of destructive criticism. From the...

Orders of the Day — BRADFORD CORPORATION BILL (By Order) (28 Feb 1949)

Mr Meredith Titterington: The hon. Gentleman can certainly rely on that assurance. Clause 94 is to be withdrawn on the Committee stage. I do not propose after the hon. Gentleman's very kind comments to follow the controversial points he has raised because, like himself, I know that they can be handled in Committee. Therefore, in the interests of the time of the House, I want to come to the specific points raised by...

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Pensions (Welfare Officers) (7 Dec 1948)

Mr Meredith Titterington: I should not like to follow the hon. and gallant Gentleman too far in his observations for I do not wish to see any truculence introduced into the Debate. I am intervening as a civilian. The interchange of views makes it look as if my Service colleagues were truculently disposed when we are supposed to be pacific in dealing with the question under review. The remark about "a soulless...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Colleges of Technology (11 Nov 1948)

Mr Meredith Titterington: Does not my right hon.

Mr Meredith Titterington: I am sure that the Postmaster-General will be in a position to rebut the arguments of the hon. Member who represents the Abbey Division of Westminster (Sir H.

Pottery Industry (Development Council) (14 Sep 1948)

Mr Meredith Titterington: You know, Mr. Deputy-Speaker, that I do not require your admonition on that particular point because all I propose to do is to submit some corroborative evidence in the form of a series of observations in support of my hon.
