Clause 51. — (Provision of facilities for recreation and social and physical training.) (27 Jul 1944)

Sir Richard Denman: Unless my right hon. Friend the President has a very strong abjection, I hope he will accept this Amendment. It merely gives the local education authority power—it does not impose on them a duty—to have some influence in the conduct and purposes of these community centres.

Clause 52. — (Power to ensure cleanliness.) (27 Jul 1944)

Sir Richard Denman: I have an Amendment on line 3 to leave out "auxiliary" and insert "voluntary."

Emergency Powers (Defence) Act, 1939 (Continuance) (14 Jul 1944)

Sir Richard Denman: On a point of Order. I think it would be convenient to the House if you would give a Ruling, Mr. Speaker, as to the scope of this Debate. The Section under which we are acting reads: If at any time while this Act is in force, an Address is presented to His Majesty by each House of Parliament praying that this Act should be continued in force for a further period of one year … His...

Orders of the Day — LONDON MIDLAND AND SCOTTISH RAILWAY BILL [Lords] [By Order] (5 Jul 1944)

Sir Richard Denman: On a point of Order. Would you, Sir, accept a Motion to adjourn the Debate if I moved it in a few minutes' time? It would be extremely unfortunate if we went to a Division on this Motion, whereas if we adjourned the Debate it would give a possibility of agreement, which seems very near to being reached, and we could proceed with the Bill after agreement had been achieved.

Orders of the Day — LONDON MIDLAND AND SCOTTISH RAILWAY BILL [Lords] [By Order] (5 Jul 1944)

Sir Richard Denman: I beg to move, "That the Debate be now adjourned." I have seldom seen the House in a more unanimous mood. It wants, on the one hand, these two Bills, and it wants, on the other hand, that the Railway Clerks Association should have reasonable recognition. Obviously it cannot get both these aims by dividing, and it is clear that, if we adjourn for a while, the parties might come together and...

Orders of the Day — LONDON MIDLAND AND SCOTTISH RAILWAY BILL [Lords] [By Order] (5 Jul 1944)

Sir Richard Denman: Certainly, on the global figures produced.

Sir Richard Denman: asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware that the shortage of rubber teats and valves for infants' feeding bottles is aggravated by the requirement that part of the manufacture of these goods shall be allocated to export, as well as by the inferior lasting qualities of the latex teats in production; and whether he will see that Rubber Control take steps to help...

Orders of the Day — Statutory Rules and Orders (17 May 1944)

Sir Richard Denman: I wish to congratulate my right hon. Friend from a rather different angle. The previous speaker wished the Home Secretary to go further than he has gone. I congratulate the Home Secretary on having so successfully limited the mischief which the original Motion would have involved. I should like to see it limited further still. The prime point we ought never to forget in this House is that we...

Orders of the Day — Statutory Rules and Orders (17 May 1944)

Sir Richard Denman: The evidence we received before that Committee in 1931 showed that the Enabling Act procedure rendered so much delegated legislation unnecessary in the sense in which the right hon. and learned Gentleman is using the term. The Assembly was able, by having ample time and proper Committee procedure, to make it so much more complete that we had not to deal with it in the same way. That is what I...

Orders of the Day — Education Bill: Clause 98. — (Power of Minister to make loans to aided schools and special agreement schools in respect of initial expenditure.) (9 May 1944)

Sir Richard Denman: In a couple of sentences I want to thank the hon. and learned Gentleman for the wholehearted acceptance that he gave to this Amendment. The spirit that he showed ought to be met on this side with equal warmth. I hope the concession will really serve to close the door on an ancient and exceedingly regrettable controversy. I believe that the President has taken a very wise course in removing...

Emergency Powers (Defence) (General Regulations) (19 Apr 1944)

Sir Richard Denman: I do not want to stand between the House and the information we hope to get from the Minister, but I want to indicate why I have put my name to this Prayer. Generally speaking, I agree with the hon. Member opposite who declared that this House has determined that the Government should have all necessary powers to organise the country for war. I think that latterly the House has not given the...
