Colonel Sir Henry Evans: May I interrupt to ask a question? I think it has been made clear from the Catholic point of view, that Catholics accept the educational standard laid down by the President of the Board of Education. But if my hon. and learned Friend is speaking officially on behalf of the Free Churches, will he indicate his attitude to the proposal of my right hon. Friend in reference OD loans, because that...

Orders of the Day — Education Bill: Clause 82. — (Remuneration of teachers.) (30 Mar 1944)

Colonel Sir Henry Evans: I completely fail to understand the charges which have been made against the Government to-day. The charge of putting the House and its Members in an embarrassing position, the charge that the Prime Minister in particular is attempting to dragoon the House of Commons according to his will, have not been substantiated by any evidence. I understand, of course, the motives of hon. Members who...

Orders of the Day — Education Bill: Clause 82. — (Remuneration of teachers.) (30 Mar 1944)

Colonel Sir Henry Evans: I think that my hon. Friend who raised the point of Order will at least admit that charges have been made. We will leave their substantiation on one side. Members have been content to make those charges. What are their motives?

Orders of the Day — Education Bill: Clause 82. — (Remuneration of teachers.) (30 Mar 1944)

Colonel Sir Henry Evans: I think that the hon. Member for Ebbw Vale (Mr. A. Bevan) is anticipating my thoughts, and, as usual, anticipating them wrongly. There has been extraordinary anxiety on the part of hon. Members on all sides to explain why they have cast their votes in a particular way on Tuesday last, and why they are going to cast their votes in an entirely opposite way to-day. One understands that...

Orders of the Day — Education Bill: Clause 82. — (Remuneration of teachers.) (30 Mar 1944)

Colonel Sir Henry Evans: Obviously I am not permitted to develop that point. I was tempted to do so owing to some remarks of the hon. Member for Oxford (Mr. Hogg) who made his own position clear. He left the Committee in no doubt. But I hope that there will be no continuation of that point. We were not discussing the question of confidence in the Government in the prosecution of the war on Tuesday last. It is clear...

Orders of the Day — War Decorations and Medals (22 Mar 1944)

Colonel Sir Henry Evans: As one who at this time last year was charged by you, Mr. Speaker, to convey a message to the Speaker of the House of Representatives at Washington, and by my noble Friend the Lord Chancellor, to present a similar message to the Presiding Officer of the Senate, I welcome this opportunity to associate myself, and particularly my colleagues of the Inter-Parliamentary Union, with this Motion:...

Orders of the Day — Education Bill: Clause 23. — (Appointment and dismissal of teachers in county schools and in auxiliary schools.) (10 Mar 1944)

Colonel Sir Henry Evans: I beg to move, as an Amendment to the proposed Amendment, in line 2, at the end, to add: but the authority shall not unreasonably refuse to comply with any recommendation by the managers or governors of the school as to the dismissal of a teacher and any dispute between the authority and the managers or governors as to such compliance shall be referred to and determined by the Minister....

Orders of the Day — Education Bill: Clause 23. — (Appointment and dismissal of teachers in county schools and in auxiliary schools.) (10 Mar 1944)

Colonel Sir Henry Evans: I have no doubt that the hierarchy of my hon. Friend might take the view that it was a wrongful dismissal, but as the hon. Member for the University of Wales (Professor Gruffydd) pointed out in a previous discussion, morale and esprit de corps are just as important to these aided schools, as they are to the public schools.

Orders of the Day — Education Bill: Clause 23. — (Appointment and dismissal of teachers in county schools and in auxiliary schools.) (10 Mar 1944)

Colonel Sir Henry Evans: I was endeavouring, I am afraid rather facetiously, to pay a compliment to the persuasive powers of the hon. Gentleman, and I did not submit that point seriously to the Committee. I moved the Amendment to the Amendment in order to get the assurance which my hon. Friend the Parliamentary Secretary has been kind enough to give us, and in view of his speech, I shall be glad to ask leave to...

Colonel Sir Henry Evans: On behalf of my hon. Friends I would like to support this Amendment and to be allowed to congratulate the hon. Lady on the clear and convincing manner in which she put her case. It is very difficult indeed to imagine what the Government reply can be if this Amendment is opposed by them. The Government, through the Minister of Health, have made a most important and solemn pronouncement on the...

Orders of the Day — Education Bill: Clause 21. — (Powers of local education authority as to use and care of premises of auxiliary schools.) (9 Mar 1944)

Colonel Sir Henry Evans: I hope that my right hon. Friend will not be able to satisfy my hon. and learned Friend who sits behind me. The Committee will recall that, when we discussed the question of electoral reform, views were expressed in all parts of the House that it might be possible for local authorities to place schools at the disposal of candidates during a General Election.

Orders of the Day — Education Bill: Clause 21. — (Powers of local education authority as to use and care of premises of auxiliary schools.) (9 Mar 1944)

Colonel Sir Henry Evans: I was aware of what was in my hon. Friend's mind, but if his proposal was carried out, it would cover a far larger area of consideration than was present in my own mind and that of my hon. Friend. Therefore, before we agree to a restriction of that kind we ought to bear the other considerations in mind.

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

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?
