Orders of the Day — Budget Proposals and Economic Survey (12 Apr 1948)

Major Donald Bruce: It is very pleasant indeed to hear the voice of authentic Toryism speaking once again from the hon. and gallant Member for Central Glasgow (Colonel J. R. H. Hutchison). It is not, of course, the first time we have heard it this afternoon. I listened very carefully to the right hon. Member for Aldershot (Mr. Lyttelton), whose interjections on planning we always note with great interest to see...

Orders of the Day — Budget Proposals and Economic Survey (12 Apr 1948)

Major Donald Bruce: The only conflict of any significance is that hon. Members on this side of the Committee consider that the Economic Survey for 1948 embodies a plan and hon. Members opposite consider that it does not. I therefore listened very carefully for some constructive alternative. Did we get an elaboration of the very carefully set out phrases in the Industrial Charter under the skilled editorship of...

Orders of the Day — Budget Proposals and Economic Survey (12 Apr 1948)

Major Donald Bruce: I am pleased that the right hon. Gentleman has risen to his feet, because I thought he would do so.

Gentleman: They must plan the key essentials; upon that we are all agreed. But they must also plan them right and must be...

Orders of the Day — Budget Proposals and Economic Survey (12 Apr 1948)

Major Donald Bruce: This is the dear version, the shilling edition. I do wish that right hon. Gentlemen opposite would listen to their own Industrial Charter, because it is rather important that they should read it. This is what the Conservative Party say: Our basic principle is to devolve both the making of plans and their execution. We contrive a well-knit system of consultation and responsibility extending...

Orders of the Day — Budget Proposals and Economic Survey (12 Apr 1948)

Major Donald Bruce: I am following the example of some hon. Gentlemen opposite who do precisely the same thing, and I do not require lessons in manners from the right hon. Gentleman. What the Opposition say is that it is impossible, and I entirely agree with them, to prepare a plan and execute it meticulously without the direction of labour. The Opposition know that such a course is repugnant to the Government....

Orders of the Day — Budget Proposals and Economic Survey (12 Apr 1948)

Major Donald Bruce: No, I am not, I am arguing the opposite; but if the hon. Member cares to consult with his right hon. Friend the Member for West Bristol (Mr. Stanley) he will find that the right hon. Gentleman did think so. Therefore, he should argue it out with him. The problem is to build up our capital equipment without which our future capacity increasingly to combat the growing competition of other...

Orders of the Day — Police Forces (Conditions) (22 Mar 1948)

Major Donald Bruce: I would like to dissent from the argument advanced by the senior Burgess for Oxford University (Sir A. Salter) that the police are fighting a losing battle against crime. I think that anybody who has had an opportunity of reading the latest Report available, which is the Report of His Majesty's Inspectors of Constabulary for 1946, issued in July last, can agree with the conclusion that there...

Orders of the Day — Police Forces (Conditions) (22 Mar 1948)

Major Donald Bruce: I am pleased to accept the right hon. Gentleman's explanation. I gathered from what he said that he thought the police were fighting a losing battle. The other disturbing factor about the present position is the remark made by the Metropolitan Police Commissioner in his Report about the increase of crime among young people. The Report says: A disturbing feature is the number of serious crimes...
