Oral Answers to Questions — British Army.: Spanish Refugee Children. (8 Jun 1937)

Hon. Harold Nicolson: Is my right hon. Friend aware that the War Office are making a profit on this?

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Ministry of Health. (18 Jun 1937)

Hon. Harold Nicolson: I wish to deal with a general matter which arises from speeches made by hon. Members opposite; namely, the question of nutrition. To keep in order while discussing some of the more general aspects of nutrition, it is necessary that I should concentrate more upon those parts of the problem which fall directly within the administrative capacity of the Minister. We are fortunate at this juncture...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Ministry of Health. (18 Jun 1937)

Hon. Harold Nicolson: Yes. That particular level of income is the only one I know in four countries, and what I noticed was that the actual knowledge in the preparation of food possessed by the wives of these teachers in Germany, France, and Italy was infinitely higher, infinitely greater, than that which I have experienced in -this country in houses on a similar income level, although my experience may have been...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Ministry of Health. (18 Jun 1937)

Hon. Harold Nicolson: I did not say that and I am sorry if I gave that impression. I said that I did not think I was allowed to talk on the subject of poverty, because it would entail legislation.

Orders of the Day — Supply. (19 Jul 1937)

Hon. Harold Nicolson: The hon. and gallant Member who has just sat down has wandered nautically very far afield. He took us from the drug traffic in China to the arms traffic in Spain. He pushed in his adventurous course even further. He embarked on history, and he ventured to draw a parallel between present conditions and those of the spacious days of Queen Elizabeth. That was a most unfortunate parallel. For if...

Orders of the Day — Supply. (19 Jul 1937)

Hon. Harold Nicolson: I am glad the right hon. Gentleman made no such claim himself, since among the evils which afflict this world to-day the greatest are surely vanity and untruthfulness. If it is true that this was a tremendous compliment, then the Government in making a song and dance about it were being vain; and if it is untrue, then they were being untruthful. We should not make a song and dance about...

Supply of British News Abroad. (16 Feb 1938)

Hon. Harold Nicolson: I rise to support the Motion moved by my hon. Friend the Member for Blackley (Mr. Lees-Jones), but also, with some reservations, to support the Amendment moved by the hon. Member for Central Hackney (Mr. Watkins) and seconded by the hon. and gallant Member for Nuneaton (Lieut.-Commander Fletcher). The Amendment contains three words which are not present in the Motion, and to my mind those...

Supply of British News Abroad. (16 Feb 1938)

Hon. Harold Nicolson: We would certainly give an extremely correct impression of this country if we sent no actors or musicians or artists abroad. I think we should keep all that as a purely internal matter. If we can find first-rate actors in this country—which I doubt—we should send them abroad. If we cannot, let us keep to what we can do of the first-rate in different ways, and it is perfectly obvious what...

Foreign Policy. (21 Feb 1938)

Hon. Harold Nicolson: It is only fitting that a junior Member, intervening in a Debate of this importance, should restrict himself to only a few remarks upon the point at issue. Anything I may say this evening I say entirely in my personal capacity; it does not represent the views of that group to which I have the honour to belong, and to which I trust I shall continue to belong. I would like to get to the...

Spain. (16 Mar 1938)

Hon. Harold Nicolson: I do not wish to enter into the controversy regarding how many arms have been, or have not been, supplied by one side or the either. I do not wish even to go back to what faults may have been committed m the past or upon whom the responsibility rests. I want to turn to the actual Motion before us and to the words of that Motion, namely: That the present situation in Spain is a grave menace...

Orders of the Day — Anglo-Turkish (Armaments Credit) Agreement Bill. (4 Jul 1938)

Hon. Harold Nicolson: The agreement in December, 1913, was not for munitions, but for a graving dock, and it is most unfair and ungenerous to say that actual munitions were ever delivered and were ever used against our people at that time. If the contract had been proceeded with, that might have been the case, but it is unfair to make the suggestion now.

Orders of the Day — Anglo-Turkish (Armaments Credit) Agreement Bill. (4 Jul 1938)

Hon. Harold Nicolson: They built the graving dock.

Orders of the Day — Anglo-Turkish (Armaments Credit) Agreement Bill. (4 Jul 1938)

Hon. Harold Nicolson: It was German financiers who did that.

Orders of the Day — Home Office Administration. (27 Jul 1938)

Hon. Harold Nicolson: I am sure we have all listened with great interest to the details which have been given by the hon. Member for Brightside (Mr. Marshall). The House is always impressed when a Member tells us details of which he has personal experience, and even more impressed when an hon. Member is able to speak with such lucidity and moderation of things about which he feels deeply. I shall not follow him in...

European Situation. (4 Oct 1938)

Hon. Harold Nicolson: Why not?

Policy of His Majesty's Government. (5 Oct 1938)

Hon. Harold Nicolson: There is the case of Belgium.

Policy of His Majesty's Government. (5 Oct 1938)

Hon. Harold Nicolson: On Monday in this Debate an hon. Member referred to certain criticisms, or certain remarks, I had made on Saturday last and he implied that those criticisms suggested disrespect to this House. I was horrified when I heard this complaint. I do not think there is a single Member of this House who regards its laws, its conventions and its courtesies with such respect, I might even say with such...

Policy of His Majesty's Government. (5 Oct 1938)

Hon. Harold Nicolson: It was a perfectly honourably negotiated treaty, between Paderewski and ex-President Benes, made in 1920, when there was no war.

Orders of the Day — Criminal Justice Bill. (1 Dec 1938)

Hon. Harold Nicolson: The hon. Member for West Willesden (Mr. Viant) did I think throw considerable light upon the purposes and origins of this Bill in that he drew attention, in a number of illustrations, to the way in which this Bill has evolved not from above so much as from below. I think that is possibly its most important aspect. This Bill is not a mere ideological formula put into legislative shape. It is...

Colonial and Middle Eastern Services. (23 Feb 1939)

Hon. Harold Nicolson: That is in Uganda?
