Civil Estimates, 1941.: Defence of Crete. (10 Jun 1941)

Mrs Beatrice Rathbone: On this, the first occasion that I have ever had the opportunity to address the House, I beg the indulgence of hon. Members.

Orders of the Day — Woman-Power. (5 Mar 1942)

Mrs Beatrice Rathbone: I am very interested to hear the figures of places where nursery schools are not being properly used, but surely this is the result of lack of leadership by the Department.

Air Estimates, 1942.: Air Services Supplementary Estimate, 1941. (11 Mar 1942)

Mrs Beatrice Rathbone: There is a brief point I wish to raise about an anomaly in pay in the Royal Air Force. First of all, I should like, if I may, to take this, the first chance I have had of speaking about Royal Air Force matters in the House of Commons, to thank the Air Ministry for the promptness with which they have always dealt with the many cases I have brought to their attention. Naturally, during the past...

Mrs Beatrice Rathbone: Is my right hon. Friend aware that one of the great difficulties in the way of getting news to the people of America is the fact that very few of them are provided with sets which can pick up our short-wave transmissions, and does he not know that very few people in Chicago ever get British news?

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Information: British Information Service, United States (21 Oct 1942)

Mrs Beatrice Rathbone: Could not the difficulty be overcome if arrangements could be made whereby many of our admirable broadcasts could be re-broadcast on American wave-lengths?

Orders of the Day — Reconstruction (2 Dec 1942)

Mrs Beatrice Rathbone: The hon. Gentleman the Member for East Aberdeen (Mr. Boothby) has given a vivid picture of what he visualises the post-war world will hold for us. I wish to raise one general and one particular point. We all agree that the post-war world depends for its success entirely on our victory.
