Attlee Warns 'slackers' (11 Apr 1949)

Major Donald Bruce: The Committee always listens with very great interest to the views of my hon. Friend the Member for North-West Hull (Mr. R. Mackay) whose knowledge of international trade, and whose views on Western Union, are extremely well known. I shall deal with his principal contention a little later in my remarks. I wish first to return to the dilemma he posed to the Chancellor when he put before the...

Attlee Warns 'slackers' (11 Apr 1949)

Major Donald Bruce: Oh, no. One of the things we have to remember is—although this is a mixed benefit—that we have a million more children to educate this year, and that needs a capital investment programme to the tune of some £30 million. I do not think I need deal with the Health Service, in view of the fact that the right hon. Member for Woodford (Mr. Churchill) saw fit to lead his men down the hill...

Orders of the Day — Budget Proposals and Economic Situation (7 Apr 1949)

Major Donald Bruce: Would the hon. Member complete the quotation? He only went part of the way.

Orders of the Day — Budget Proposals and Economic Situation (7 Apr 1949)

Major Donald Bruce: I only want the rest of the sentence.

Orders of the Day — Budget Proposals and Economic Situation (7 Apr 1949)

Major Donald Bruce: Could the hon. Gentleman explain how much the ordinary capital investment programme has gone up? He must be aware that a good deal must, of necessity on a long-term basis, go into the re-creation of our own physical assets which we lost during the war.

Orders of the Day — War Damage (Amendment) Bill (18 Mar 1949)

Major Donald Bruce: I too hope that the House will give this Bill a Second Reading. There is no necessity for us to pretend that if we do give the Bill a Second Reading we are not criticising the War Damage Commission. The Bill confers no new powers on anyone. All it does is to take the discretion as to the time-limit in particular cases out of the hands of the Commission, and to put it into the hands of the...

Analgesia in Childbirth (15 Mar 1949)

Major Donald Bruce: Which authority?

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Waste Paper Collection (10 Mar 1949)

Major Donald Bruce: Will my right hon. Friend say whether the inflated figures for the year 1948 are due to extra copies of the Conservative Party's Industrial Charter?

British Flyers Make Idlewild Gasp: Supplementary Reserve (8 Mar 1949)

Major Donald Bruce: While I cannot share a good deal of the synthetic emotion which has been displayed by the hon. and gallant Member for Horncastle (Commander Maitland) I must say that it is a little surprising, indeed very pleasant, that we should have a member of the party opposite advocating adjustments of pay and allowances in an upward direction, more especially as he is a member of the party which on at...

British Flyers Make Idlewild Gasp: Supplementary Reserve (8 Mar 1949)

Major Donald Bruce: I should like the right. hon. Gentleman to inform the House whether he is holding himself up as a model of courtesy.

British Flyers Make Idlewild Gasp: Supplementary Reserve (8 Mar 1949)

Major Donald Bruce: I was speaking of the remarks which the hon. Member for Wood Green (Mr. Baxter) is reported to have made in a speech last night, when he referred to the "Gaiety Girls" of the Opposition Front Bench.

Orders of the Day — National Directorships (Appointments) (7 Mar 1949)

Major Donald Bruce: The hon. Member for Eastern Surrey (Mr. Astor) has spoken to the House as though he wished to allay public anxiety on the question of appointments by the Government to certain public boards which have followed quite naturally from the nationalisation legislation which has been passed. In my view, the only public anxiety to which he is paying any attention at the moment is that which has been...

Orders of the Day — National Directorships (Appointments) (7 Mar 1949)

Major Donald Bruce: I accept the assurance. I am certain that when my right hon. Friend comes to reply he will not wish to shelter behind those who make the appointments but will accept Governmental responsibility. If it be true that the Opposition want us to be impartial about this and are making a terrific case about impartiality—and, of course, the cry in the country is "Jobs for the boys," which has a nice...

Orders of the Day — National Directorships (Appointments) (7 Mar 1949)

Major Donald Bruce: I accept the assurance of the hon. Member; I am pleased to note his repudiation of the poisonous doctrine of the hon, Member for Kingston-upon-Thames. I should like to pass from that if I may. The question of patronage has been discussed in its wrong context. It is assumed that because the Government of the day bring in certain legislation which institutes certain national boards they will...

Orders of the Day — National Directorships (Appointments) (7 Mar 1949)

Major Donald Bruce: I can understand the point being a little embarrassing to hon. Members opposite. We come next to the right hon. Gentleman the Member for Aldershot (Mr. Lyttelton), who also, unfortunately for him, lost his Ministerial office because his party suffered an electoral defeat in the General Election. Finance and industry tend to look after their own, because we find today the right hon. Gentleman...

Major Donald Bruce: Major Bruce rose——
