Orders of the Day — Supply.: Army Estimates, 1938. (10 Mar 1938)

Colonel Bernard Cruddas: The hon. Member for Spennymoor (Mr. Batey) said he would not criticise the present officers, and we who remember the criticism which officers got after the South African War appreciate his moderation. We realise that we are open to criticism, and we are always prepared to take fair criticism. The hon. Member for Romford (Mr. Parker) said that all the officers nowadays are supposed to have...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Army Estimates, 1938. (10 Mar 1938)

Colonel Bernard Cruddas: It may have been bad luck for the Army, but it was very good luck for the Church. The hon. Member for Romford again seems to have some information, because when I went to my form master and said I was going into the Army he said, "I don't believe there is anything else you can do." But he added very certainly, "You will never pass the examination. As a matter of tact what you want is some...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Army Estimates, 1938. (10 Mar 1938)

Colonel Bernard Cruddas: I did not know that he had refused to publish that report, but I take it that he is going to publish it. [HON. MEMBERS: "No!"] Well, I did not know that. Then I think we ought to wait and see. I understand that the Secretary of State is going to make some proposal which will result in more officers joining the Army, and we should wait and see.

Inadequate Defences of Great Britain and the Empire from Foreign Attacks. ( 7 Feb 1934)

Colonel Bernard Cruddas: I rise to support the Motion. I do not intend to follow the last speaker very far. I followed him as far as the Falkland Islands, and then I found that I was lost. I agree with him on one point, where he said that he does not know where our enemy is to come from. Nor do I at the present time. One hon. Member said that we all have our pet theories. My pet theory is the question of the safety...

Orders of the Day — Coal Mines Bill. ( 1 Jun 1932)

Colonel Bernard Cruddas: I beg to support this Amendment. In the last two years a great many people have changed their opinions on this question. Owing to Part I coming into operation five months earlier than we expected, some of us have not yet got a clear vision of the whole picture. I knew that I did not see eye to eye with the hon. Member for Consett (Mr. Dickie), but I did not know that we were very nearly back...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Housing. (12 Apr 1932)

Colonel Bernard Cruddas: I ask the indulgence of the House in rising to address it for the first time. I welcome the decision of the Minister of Health to concentrate on building three-roomed houses at a low rent. There is very considerable dissatisfaction among the lower-paid workers in the North of England. They see four and five-roomed houses built with the subsidy and then.et at rents that they cannot possibly...
