Orders of the Day — Supply.: Civil Estimates, 1940. (28 May 1940)

Hon. Harold Nicolson: Oh yes, that is a question that we shall have to take up with the regional officers and ask them for their opinion. It was a suggestion which was not agreed to by the hon. Member behind the hon. Member for Dumbarton Burghs.

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Civil Estimates, 1940. (28 May 1940)

Hon. Harold Nicolson: I think it is a very good point, and I am very grateful to the hon. Member for Stoke for having made it. It will certainly be considered, although of course, it would throw extra work on to the B.B.C., but if it sent people to work less anxious, it would be worth while every time. We shall certainly do it if it is at all feasible. The hon. Member for Romford raised the question of speed. One...

Oral Answers to Questions — Aliens.: British Council for Christian Settlement in Europe. (19 Oct 1939)

Hon. Harold Nicolson: asked the Home Secretary whether he is aware that several persons prominently connected with the Link, which was disbanded as an agency of enemy propaganda, have now joined a new organisation, styling itself "The British Council for Christian Settlement in Europe"; and whether the activities of these people are still being watched?

Oral Answers to Questions — Film Studios. (13 Sep 1939)

Hon. Harold Nicolson: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware of the great use which is being made in Germany and other countries of the film as an instrument of propaganda?

Orders of the Day — Class Vii.: International Situation. (31 Jul 1939)

Hon. Harold Nicolson: I was quite aware of what the hon. Baronet said. I suggested that what he said was a misstatement, due to want of special study of the subject of which he is speaking. As a matter of fact, the speeches to which he referred have not been used as propaganda. What has been used is old dug-out propaganda material from the period of the last War. If it comes to a question of propaganda the...

European Situation. (3 Apr 1939)

Hon. Harold Nicolson: In following the hon. Member for North Battersea (Mr. Sanders), I wish merely to add my pebble to that great bastion of support which the Prime Minister must feel that he has now behind him. I think it is only fair and fitting that those of us who criticised the Munich Agreement should admit that at one point at least we made a miscalculation. We grossly underestimated the effect which the...

European Situation. (3 Apr 1939)

Hon. Harold Nicolson: I do not know the exact proportion of the Communist and Socialist parties in Germany compared to the 80,000,000 population, but I am certain that they are all against it. I do not wish to enter into that argument, because I would be delighted to agree with the hon. Gentleman in any proportions he could give me. I am trying to diminish the optimism of those who imagine that the present system...

European Situation. (3 Apr 1939)

Hon. Harold Nicolson: I doubt whether it is 40 per cent. to-day. To continue my argument, I was saying that it is important that we should not under-estimate the fear aroused in the German public by the conception of encirclement. We here know perfectly well that the Prime Minister is quite incapable or unwilling to encircle anything. We think it ridiculous to pretend that our Government at any moment wishes to...

Colonial and Middle Eastern Services. (23 Feb 1939)

Hon. Harold Nicolson: That is in Uganda?

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...

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.

European Situation. (4 Oct 1938)

Hon. Harold Nicolson: Why not?

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...

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.

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...

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...
