India (Government Policy) (14 Jun 1945)

Mr Thomas Harvey: The right hon. and gallant Gentleman the Member for Central Nottingham (Sir F. Sykes) has spoken with great knowledge of India and, we all know, with great love for India. I would join with him in saying how thankful I am that the Government have been able on the last working day of this Parliament to make this great pronouncement, so full of promise for India and for the Commonwealth of the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Czechoslovakia (Transfer of Germans) (13 Jun 1945)

Orders of the Day — African Soldiers (Corporal Punishment) (12 Jun 1945)

Mr Thomas Harvey: I think that the point which has been made by the hon. Member for Mossley (Mr. Hopkinson) covers a much wider field than Africa, because there are many other countries in which too frequently the desire to please in giving a reply carries weight rather than the desire to be absolutely accurate. I am sure the greatest care has been taken by the Financial Secretary in examining these...

Civil Estimates and Estimates for Revenue Departments, 1945; Navy, Army and Air Estimates, 1945: Education (11 Jun 1945)

Mr Thomas Harvey: I do not share the extreme gloom of my hon. Friend the Member for the University of Wales (Professor Gruffydd), although I realise the gravity and importance of a number of the points he has put before the Committee. The Minister at the outset of his speech gave us an illuminating metaphor. It did not produce on my mind quite the effect it would appear to have done upon my hon. Friend the...

Civil Estimates and Estimates for Revenue Departments, 1945; Navy, Army and Air Estimates, 1945: Education (11 Jun 1945)

Mr Thomas Harvey: I am delighted to know that, and I know that there are other universities which are looking forward to taking an increasing share in this great task. We do not, however, see adequate provision for it in these Estimates. We have had no allusion, beyond a word or two from the Minister, to the importance of this subject. I am sure that he is not indifferent to it, but I would beg of him to give...

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture: Women Mineworkers (7 Jun 1945)

Mr Thomas Harvey: As the right hon. Gentleman has already assured the House that it is his hope that this will be brought to an end very soon, will he give an assurance that every effort is being made to get it stopped as soon as possible?

Oral Answers to Questions — British Army: Germany (Non-Fraternisation Order) (5 Jun 1945)

Mr Thomas Harvey: asked the Secretary of State for War to what extent he proposes to modify the non-fraternisation order in Germany at an early date; and whether measures are being taken to adopt equivalent standards governing the relationships of the troops with the civil population in the different zones of occupation.

Oral Answers to Questions — British Army: Germany (Non-Fraternisation Order) (5 Jun 1945)

Mr Thomas Harvey: While that question is under review, would my right hon. Friend bear in mind that an order, which is justifiable during military operations and in a period of uncertainty afterwards, may be a very great danger as well as a great hardship on troops if it is continued?

Mr Thomas Harvey: Would the right hon. Gentleman deal with the question of currency?

Orders of the Day — Purchase Tax (Suspension of Registration Limit) (1 Jun 1945)

Mr Thomas Harvey: I wish to support the hon. Member for Thirsk and Malton (Mr. Turton) in the earnest plea which he has made that this Order should be withdrawn. I think he put the general case against it exceedingly well. The fact that now, at this very late stage of the war, it is thought necessary to bring in this Measure is surprising and needs explanation, and the fact that so many small people will be...

Members on this side, will join in thanking the Government for the way in which they have met the wishes expressed on all sides concerning the further safeguarding of open spaces and commons, and also for the very ingenious way in which the Ministry of Town and Country Planning has been given a place in this Clause...

Requisitioned Land and War Works Bill: CAMPS BILL [Lords] (30 May 1945)

Mr Thomas Harvey: I join with my hon. Friend the Member for Kilmarnock (Mr. Lindsay) in congratulating the Minister and the Parliamentary Secretary on initiating their work, which is of such importance, by this most fruitful Bill. They will have the good will of the whole House in taking up work that was un fortunately suspended by the outbreak of war. The Ministry of Education—the Board of Education as it...

Requisitioned Land and War Works Bill: CAMPS BILL [Lords] (30 May 1945)

Mr Thomas Harvey: I am all in favour of improving the homes of the people, but while that is being done the children are there, and we can deal with them now while we are making arrangements for better homes. I have seen children as excited by the sight of a frog as many children in happier homes would be at the sight of a rhinoceros. Those children have never before seen such a strange creature as a frog. I...
