Orders of the Day — Welsh Courts Bill (14 Oct 1942)

Mr Ernest Evans: Like my hon. Friend, who has worked very hard and successfully in this matter, I should like to extend a cordial welcome to this Bill. The difficulties of the Welsh people in exercising the elementary right of seeking access to the courts have been brought before the House on many occasions. I find that the matter was raised in 1872 by the late Mr. Osborn Morgan, a highly respected Welsh...

Orders of the Day — Defence Regulation 18B. (21 Jul 1942)

Mr Ernest Evans: The Amendment which has been moved by the hon. and gallant Member for Cleveland (Commander Bower) enables us to discuss the operation of Regulation 18B. There is uneasiness in the country about the operation of Regulation 18B, and that uneasiness is felt by a large number of intelligent, sensible and decent people. They are not people who wish to deny to the Government any powers that may be...

Orders of the Day — Defence Regulation 18B. (21 Jul 1942)

Mr Ernest Evans: We are not sure that the Chairman of the Committee has ever given a definite decision in regard to all the recommendations which reach the Home Secretary, and that is the question I asked at the beginning of my speech. I know that this suggestion will not meet the case of those who have pressed very strongly for a right of appeal. In the past I have not been able to agree to the suggestion...

Orders of the Day — Defence Regulation 18B. (21 Jul 1942)

Mr Ernest Evans: I have said that I do not approve of a right of appeal.

Business of the House.: Special Report. (18 Jun 1942)

Mr Ernest Evans: Did the hon. Member subscribe to the findings of the Committee of Privileges?

Orders of the Day — Ministers of the Crown and House of Commons Disquali Fication Bill. (18 Feb 1942)

Mr Ernest Evans: Like my hon. Friend the Member for Cambridge University (Mr. Pickthorn), I had not intended to take part in the Debate on the Second Reading, but I had thought of addressing the Committee, at the next stage, on two Clauses in the name of my hon. Friend the Member for East Wolverhampton (Mr. Mander), which, unfortunately, he will not be able to move himself, on account of illness. My right...

Orders of the Day — Ministers of the Crown and House of Commons Disquali Fication Bill. (18 Feb 1942)

Mr Ernest Evans: The fact that you are not calling the first proposed new Clause—(Form of Certificate)—Colonel Clifton Brown, puts us in a very consider able difficulty, because much of the discussion on the Second Reading of this Bill was devoted to the very proposal contained in that new Clause. We were looking forward to a reply from the Attorney-General, which, I understand, he is anxious to make.

Orders of the Day — Ministers of the Crown and House of Commons Disquali Fication Bill.: New Clause. — (Limitation of period of certificate.) (18 Feb 1942)

Mr Ernest Evans: I beg to move, "That the Clause be read a Second time." This proposed new Clause deals with a limited number of cases and asks that no certificates shall be issued to any Member who is appointed to an office or post involving residence abroad for more than three years. There was a good deal of misgiving on the part of many Members of the House when the original Bill was introduced and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Economic Warfare.: Co-Operation with United States. (17 Feb 1942)

Mr Ernest Evans: asked the Minister of Economic Warfare whether he has any further statement to make in regard to co-ordination of effort in economic warfare between His Majesty's Government and the Government of the United States of America?

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Broadcasting (Overseas Services). (17 Feb 1942)

Mr Ernest Evans: On a point of Order. The hon. and gallant Gentleman is making some most interesting remarks upon a topic in which many hon. Members are interested, but may I ask you, Sir Dennis, with all due respect, whether it is in Order now to raise this matter? I ask for information, as I think a few hon. Members would like to speak on this matter, but I have very grave doubts whether it would be in Order.

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Broadcasting (Overseas Services). (17 Feb 1942)

Mr Ernest Evans: My hon. and gallant Friend opposite was attempting to lead us into a very wide discussion and one which I felt to be outside the very limited scope possible on these Estimates. These Estimates ask us to give an additional £1,300,000 to the British Broadcasting Corporation, and, as I understand the constitutional position, that cannot be done unless the Minister of Information approves....

Orders of the Day — Home Guard. (18 Dec 1941)

Mr Ernest Evans: I think that the response made to the appeal for enrolment in the Home Guard surprised most people and probably surprised the Government more than anybody else. The history of the Home Guard is one in which the country can take pride. There has been a display of willingness and keenness which is a very great tribute to the people of this country. I want, as a member of the Home Guard, to...

Orders of the Day — Home Guard. (18 Dec 1941)

Mr Ernest Evans: That is where I think the Government make a mistake. The White Paper reads as follows: It is proposed at the outset only to exercise powers of compulsory enrolment … in certain areas where an insufficient number of Home Guards is available under the voluntary system. That is a statement of policy by the Government. The net result will be very much the same, but the Government would have...

Orders of the Day — Home Guard. (18 Dec 1941)

Mr Ernest Evans: Does the hon. Gentleman hope to reach this stage that I suggested, of having a P.S.I. for each company?

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Information (Cancelled Broadcast). (18 Dec 1941)

Mr Ernest Evans: On a point of Order. The Minister is now quoting from a document. Is it not in accordance with tradition that that document should now be laid upon the Table?

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Information (Cancelled Broadcast). (18 Dec 1941)

Mr Ernest Evans: The hon. Member who supported the Ministry of Information is such a popular Member of the House that we are inclined to accept a statement coming from him more readily than such a statement coming from other people, but we cannot ignore the fact that the Home Secretary is sitting on the Front Bench. In view of the fact that he is here, it is important that we should ask one or two questions...

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Information (Cancelled Broadcast). (18 Dec 1941)

Mr Ernest Evans: Do not let us quarrel about whether I used the wrong expression. If I did use the wrong expression, I am sorry, and I withdraw it. As I see the position, it is, that a gentleman was asked by the B.B.C. to broadcast. He prepared his broadcast, he submitted it to the B.B.C. and, as far as I can see, for about two or three days they did not discover anything objectionable in it. Would the hon....

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Information (Cancelled Broadcast). (18 Dec 1941)

Mr Ernest Evans: The script was delivered to the office of the Governors of the B.B.C, and they did not happen to see it for two or three days.

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Information (Cancelled Broadcast). (18 Dec 1941)

Mr Ernest Evans: Do not let us quarrel about that. The script was delivered, and the B.B.C, or the Ministry of Information, or both, did not object to that script until some time after receiving it. Somebody thought, "There is one paragraph in this thing that we do not like, and, before we allow it to be delivered, we are going to consult the Home Secretary." Then the Home Secretary said, "I do not like the...

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Information (Cancelled Broadcast). (18 Dec 1941)

Mr Ernest Evans: The right hon. Gentleman has attributed to me something that I did not say. I did not complain about the right hon. Gentleman being consulted, but I asked when he was consulted. It is no use attributing to me things I have never said.
