Business of the House (5 Mar 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: When is there to be a debate on the White Paper on Monopolies, Mergers and Restrictive Practices? Is it intended that it should be debated at the same time as the Second Reading of the Resale Prices Bill on Tuesday? If so, surely a one-day debate will not be adequate.

Zanzibar (20 Feb 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: While fully sharing the desire that Zanzibar should remain in the Commonwealth, may I ask whether there is not a very serious risk of getting the worst of both worlds by delay in recognition, since we lose the diplomatic link while, at the same time, playing into the hands of those who wish to create anti-British feeling in the island?

Orders of the Day — Post Office (Household Delivery Service) (4 Feb 1964)

Mr Donald Wade: A case can be made out against having any new household service at all, but it is more difficult to justify the Opposition's Motion which, in effect, proposes that the new delivery service should proceed but that the dissemina- tion of political propaganda and other highly contentious matter should be excluded.

A great effort is made to get Christmas cards out before Christmas Day, and my impression is...
