House of Commons (Catering Facilities) (6 Apr 1944)

Colonel Sir Henry Evans: With your permission Mr. Deputy-Speaker, I will now come to the question I desire to raise. Yesterday, I asked my hon. Friend the Member for Dulwich (Mr. Bracewell Smith), in his capacity as Chairman of the Kitchen Committee, a Question with reference to the catering facilities which would be made now and in the future for the convenience not only of Members of the House but "for all those...

House of Commons (Catering Facilities) (6 Apr 1944)

Colonel Sir Henry Evans: As I was saying God and the Ministry of Food supply the food, but the cooking in the House of Commons is a matter for the Devil himself. I do not expect pre-war standards, but I have lived on Army rations in two wars, and in other places in this war, where the food provided comes from the common source it is much better cooked and better served than we get here in the Mother of Parliaments. I...

House of Commons (Catering Facilities) (6 Apr 1944)

Colonel Sir Henry Evans: To the Report of the Select Committee which was laid on the Table of the House on 29th March. It has not yet been returned from the printers, but a roneoed copy is available to those hon. Members who wish to see it, in accordance with Mr. Deputy-Speaker's Ruling. I am not an accountant, but it appears to me that, on provisions alone, this Committee has made a profit of no less than 47½ per...

House of Commons (Catering Facilities) (6 Apr 1944)

Colonel Sir Henry Evans: I hope that, when the hon. Gentleman replies, he will enlighten us on that point. I have no knowledge of the facts, and no means of finding out. Is my hon. Friend the Member for Dulwich really satisfied with the present condition of affairs? I want him to face up boldly to the realities of the problem, as nine out of ten Members view it today. I ask him to invite his Committee to review the...

House of Commons (Catering Facilities) (6 Apr 1944)

House of Commons (Catering Facilities) (6 Apr 1944)

Colonel Sir Henry Evans: I said "as any institution of national importance."

Ministry of War Transport (4 May 1944)

Colonel Sir Henry Evans: May I interrupt the hon. Member to point out that there is another aspect of the case? I was a military officer in the last war and I was in fact an establishment officer. At that time as soon as an official in the Civil Service received promotion, he began to demand an awful lot of things that he thought necessary to keep up his dignity in his enhanced position. It was in the interest of...

Orders of the Day — Education Bill: Clause 53. — (Provision of transport and other facilities.) (9 May 1944)

Colonel Sir Henry Evans: As I moved the original Amendment during the Committee stage I would like to observe that the word "may," instead of "shall," still remains. The local education authority may say that they are under no obligation to carry out the wishes of the Minister, and I would like to be certain that the Minister is entirely satisfied that the Clause, as it is at present drafted, will make it obligatory...

Orders of the Day — Education Bill (12 May 1944)

Colonel Sir Henry Evans: In the first place I would like, in the name of my colleagues who have been doing their best to present the Roman Catholic case during the passage of this Bill through the House of Commons, to thank my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Chichester (Lieut.-Commander Joynson-Hicks) for the very gracious remarks he made about our efforts. We have endeavoured to be realists, and not to do...

Orders of the Day — Education Bill (12 May 1944)

Colonel Sir Henry Evans: —and in some cases an under-paid community. That fact remains, and that is what the Bill means to the Roman Catholic community. The Government, as part of a measure of compromise, are going to loan them money at 4½ per cent. per annum, being 3 per cent. interest and 1½ per cent. for sinking fund. But that is not the end of their uncertainty. On this basis their liability of £430,000 a...

Orders of the Day — Parliamentary Electors (War- Time Registration) Bill (27 Jun 1944)

Colonel Sir Henry Evans: Can the Minister give the House some estimate of when he will be in a position to name the appointed day under the original Act, if the Bill is passed?

Orders of the Day — Supply (13 Jul 1944)

Colonel Sir Henry Evans: This is the first time that I have ever heard an hon. Member of the party above the Gangway requesting the Minister of Fuel and Power to fix a rate of wages in that industry. If my recollection serves me right, the whole of their policy over a period of years has been entirely in the opposite direction, with a view to taking it out of the hands of the Minister of the day. I must say I think...

Orders of the Day — Supply (13 Jul 1944)

Colonel Sir Henry Evans: Nonsense or not, the question we have to face in future is, Can we make the mines acceptable to the younger generation? Unless we achieve success in that direction, there is no future for the coal industry. We must at least try, and it is obvious from the speech of the Minister that imaginative attempts are already being made by His Majesty's Government. He referred to shower baths and...

Orders of the Day — Town and Country Planning Bill (9 Oct 1944)

Colonel Sir Henry Evans: Are we entitled to discuss on this Clause the proceedings in the Committee last Friday?

Welsh Affairs (17 Oct 1944)

Colonel Sir Henry Evans: This is a memorable day, not only in the history of Wales, but in that of Parliament, and it is a day to which generations of our predecessors have looked forward eagerly. It has taken us hundreds of years to amend the Statute of King Henry VIII which prohibited Welshmen from pleading in their own language in their own courts, in their own country, and, as the hon. Lady has pointed out in her...

Orders of the Day — Hansard, Bound Volumes (Members of Parliament) (7 Nov 1944)

Colonel Sir Henry Evans: I would like to support what has been said by the hon. Member for West Bromwich (Mr. Dugdale) in his request to the Treasury that this facility which has been taken away from hon. Members should now be restored. It is obvious that Members, during the time the House is not sitting, must of necessity be in their constituencies or at places where these official volumes are not available to them....

Orders of the Day — Hansard, Bound Volumes (Members of Parliament) (7 Nov 1944)

Colonel Sir Henry Evans: Does my hon Friend appreciate that the ordinary daily issues have no index, and that, if one is anxious to look up a speech, there is no possible way of finding it? Did my hon. Friend's Committee take steps to consult representative opinion in the House, through the usual channels, to ascertain what Members thought of the restriction?
