Orders of the Day — Parliament (Elections and Meeting) Bill (26 Oct 1943)

Colonel Sir Henry Evans: I should like to join the two hon. Members who preceded me, one speaking on behalf of the Labour Party and the other on behalf of the Liberal Party, in welcoming the Measure and congratulat- ing the right hon. Gentleman and the Government on its timely introduction. The right hon. Gentleman in his very interesting speech traced the history of the matter back to the time of Henry VI. I feel...

Parliament (Elections and Meeting) Bill: Clause 3. — (Dissolution of parliament on future date.) (3 Nov 1943)

Colonel Sir Henry Evans: Before we leave this Clause, perhaps my right hon. Friend the Under-Secretary might find it possible to give the Committee more information on the question of the Dissolution of Parliament. On the Second Reading the question was raised at some length as to the desirability, in a temporary Measure, designed to meet abnormal situations, for this country to find itself without a Parliament for a...

Orders of the Day — Education Bill (19 Jan 1944)

Colonel Sir Henry Evans: For many years I have often heard the hypothetical question put not only in this House but outside as to what did Gladstone say in 1870? I am very glad indeed to learn from my hon. Friend who preceded me what he did in fact say about this most controversial matter. There are many things in the speech of my hon. Friend the Member for Keighley (Mr. Thomas) with which I find myself in complete...

Orders of the Day — Education Bill (19 Jan 1944)

Colonel Sir Henry Evans: I am not for one moment decrying the educational benefits which the Catholic and non-Catholic child will get under this Bill. We are all agreed that so far as that side is concerned it is an immense step forward. I do not wish to detain the House unduly, but I could have opened my speech by throwing bouquets to my right hon. Friend. I agree entirely that as part of the community, and part...

Orders of the Day — Education [Money] (28 Jan 1944)

Colonel Sir Henry Evans: I am sorry it has not been possible for me to be here throughout the whole of this Debate, but I have been detained on other business. I would like to join with other Members in welcoming the manner in which this Money Resolution has been drawn. It reflects the open mind, not only of the Minister but of the Government in general, towards this difficult and controversial problem of finance in...

Orders of the Day — Education [Money] (28 Jan 1944)

Colonel Sir Henry Evans: I am sure it is well in the mind of my hon. Friend that in all matters of legislation—for instance, as that affecting the Home Office, with which he was so familiar when he was such a distinguished member of that Department—negotiations have to take place of a preliminary character which must, in the nature and order of things, come to this House for subsequent confirmation. I merely...

Orders of the Day — Electoral Reform (2 Feb 1944)

Colonel Sir Henry Evans: Yesterday and to-day we have heard the views of representatives of England, Scotland and Northern Ireland. As the first Member for a Welsh constituency to have the good fortune to catch your eye, Sir, I welcome the opportunity of congratulating my right hon. Friend the Home Secretary on the fair and impartial manner in which he has presented the Motion. In spite of what the hon. Member for...

Clause 4. — (Central Advisory Councils.) (8 Feb 1944)

Colonel Sir Henry Evans: I feel that I must support my Welsh friends in their plea to the President. For the first time in many years there has been a recognition by my right hon. Friend that a Welsh Council on Education, dealing with Welsh problems, is necessary in the interests of education in Wales. If that principle had not been recognised and conceded, the Clause would not have been incorporated in the Bill in...

House of Commons Disqualifi- Cation (Temporary Provisions) Bill (11 Feb 1944)

Colonel Sir Henry Evans: May I interrupt the hon. Gentleman? He is making suggestions to the House of which I think the majority of us have not the slightest knowledge. He should specify the cases which he has in mind so that the House will be in possession of the facts.

Orders of the Day — Education Bill: Clause 10. — (Development plans as to primary and secondary schools.) (16 Feb 1944)

Colonel Sir Henry Evans: I beg to move, in page 8, line 26, to leave out from "made," to "necessary," in line 27, and to insert: by any person to whom particlars or further. I understand it would be convenient if, with this Amendment, which stands in the name of the hon. Member for Rochdale (Dr. Morgan) and other hon. Members, we considered the Amendment in my name and that of other Members, in page 8, line 29, after...

Orders of the Day — Education Bill: Clause 10. — (Development plans as to primary and secondary schools.) (16 Feb 1944)

Colonel Sir Henry Evans: My hon. Friend the Parliamentary Secretary has met our real anxiety and we are most grateful for the manner in which he has approached the proposal, and in view of his assurance I beg to ask leave to withdraw the Amendment.

Orders of the Day — Education Bill: Clause 10. — (Development plans as to primary and secondary schools.) (16 Feb 1944)

Colonel Sir Henry Evans: I beg to move, in page 8, line 39, at the end, to insert: Provided that— (a) before approving a development plan the Minister shall publish in the London Gazette, and in such other manner as he may think best adapted for informing persons affected, notice of the proposal to give such approval and of the place where copies of the plan as proposed to be approved may be obtained, and of the...

Orders of the Day — Education Bill: Clause 10. — (Development plans as to primary and secondary schools.) (16 Feb 1944)

Colonel Sir Henry Evans: May I remind the hon. Member that under Clause 86 the Minister is bound to hold an inquiry? All this Amendment is seeking to do is to insist on the holding of a local inquiry unless all the objections are withdrawn.

Orders of the Day — Education Bill: Clause 14. — (Classification of auxiliary schools as controlled schools, aided schools, or special agreement schools.) (25 Feb 1944)

Colonel Sir Henry Evans: Subject to your approval, Major Milner, I do not propose to move this Amendment, but to raise the question of financing the establishment of new schools on a new Clause to be moved at a later stage.

Orders of the Day — Education Bill: Clause 14. — (Classification of auxiliary schools as controlled schools, aided schools, or special agreement schools.) (25 Feb 1944)

Colonel Sir Henry Evans: Speaking of truth, I have listened very carefully, and the arguments which the hon. Member has used up to now, have little or no relation to truth or to the Amendment on the Paper. The effect of the Amendment is to provide that the liabilities of the managers or governors of aided schools and special agreement schools in respect of alterations or repairs only shall be determined on the basis...

Orders of the Day — Education Bill: Clause 14. — (Classification of auxiliary schools as controlled schools, aided schools, or special agreement schools.) (25 Feb 1944)

Colonel Sir Henry Evans: This is a very important point. My right hon. Friend must have formed some estimate himself as to the additional cost which would be place on all denominations if the schools at present under their charge were brought up to the standard which suited him and met their requirements. Could my right hon. Friend give any indication of such an estimate?

Orders of the Day — Education Bill: Clause 14. — (Classification of auxiliary schools as controlled schools, aided schools, or special agreement schools.) (25 Feb 1944)

Colonel Sir Henry Evans: I am profoundly disappointed with my right hon. Friend's speech. To my complete surprise he gave great weight to the speech delivered on behalf of the Labour Party from the Opposition Front Bench by the hon. Member for South Bristol (Mr. A. G. Walkden) and it was clear from the speech of the hon. Member who claimed to speak not only on behalf of the Parliamentary Labour Party but of the...

Orders of the Day — Education Bill: Clause 14. — (Classification of auxiliary schools as controlled schools, aided schools, or special agreement schools.) (25 Feb 1944)

Colonel Sir Henry Evans: Is that strictly correct? The hon. Member must have made a close study of the facts; he knows that over the 25 years preceding the war the Catholic community incurred a debt in their own interest of £3,500,000. That debt has not yet been discharged. How is it possible now to increase the burden from £3,500,000 to £13,500,000 over the next 25 years?

Orders of the Day — Education Bill: Clause 14. — (Classification of auxiliary schools as controlled schools, aided schools, or special agreement schools.) (25 Feb 1944)

Colonel Sir Henry Evans: Money at 4½ or 5 per cent. can be raised on proper security as the hon. Member knows full well. It is not impossible to raise the amount, but we could not repay it. That is the point. It has to be met. No one is going to loan that money to any religious denomination if be is uncertain of the return of the principal. What security have we to offer?

Orders of the Day — Education Bill: Clause 14. — (Classification of auxiliary schools as controlled schools, aided schools, or special agreement schools.) (25 Feb 1944)

Colonel Sir Henry Evans: I wish the bankers I have been in touch with shared the hon. Member's point of view on loans. That has not been my experience. We have had a long Debate which has ranged over a wide ground. I hope my right hon. Friend will find it possible to again look at the financial aspect particularly in relation to the present proposals in a much more sympathetic and practical manner than he has done...
