Orders of the Day — Vote, of Credit, 1945: War Situation and Foreign Policy (19 Jan 1945)

Hon. Harold Nicolson: Armistice does not entail the release of prisoners.

House of Commons (Rebuilding) (25 Jan 1945)

Hon. Harold Nicolson: I think the House generally agrees with the hon. Member that we must have homes for our soldiers when they get back in order that they may marry and settle down; that is the most urgent, important and, I should add, dangerous, problem that this or any other House will have to face. I should feel in agreement with him if we had been left under the impression that this new building is going...

House of Commons (Rebuilding) (25 Jan 1945)

Hon. Harold Nicolson: I was saying that the one thing to avoid was to be like a foreign Legislature.

Orders of the Day — Class I: Foreign Policy (30 Jan 1945)

It does express a very general regret, felt, I think, in every part of this House, that the circumstances of war...

Orders of the Day — Crimea Conference (28 Feb 1945)

Hon. Harold Nicolson: I was coming to that point. We all felt that it was unwise for Poland to go beyond that. We were en- raged and indignant when, later on, Poland took Vilna; and I can remember speaking in this House in terms of severe reprobation of the Polish attitude towards Czechoslovakia, when Czechoslovakia lay bleeding on the ground. They got these areas by force; they must lose them by force. As...

Orders of the Day — Crimea Conference (28 Feb 1945)

Hon. Harold Nicolson: I wish the hon. Lady had not referred to last summer, because if it had not been for the haggling last summer there would not have been so much unhappiness and uncertainty. If the Poles are encouraged to go on haggling, as they did last summer, and to say, "We must have a few seats more" then we shall again get into a mess. In' more direct reply to the hon. Lady's question, I feel that...
