Orders of the Day — Festival of Britain (Supplementary Provisions) Bill (23 Nov 1949)

Vice-Admiral Ernest Taylor: On the question of water transport, will the Minister devote a very short time to altering the name of these rather attractively designed river craft which ply up and down the Thames from the name "water bus"?

Orders of the Day — Festival of Britain (Supplementary Provisions) Bill (23 Nov 1949)

Vice-Admiral Ernest Taylor: "Water bus" is a terrible name and one that is extremely offensive to any seaman. We do not talk of "air buses" but of "aircraft." I ask the Minister to alter the name. He might call them "river water transport" or something like that.

Orders of the Day — Iron and Steel Bill: Clause 11. — (Transfer to Corporation of Securities of Scheduled Companies.) (25 Jul 1949)

Vice-Admiral Ernest Taylor: I think the hon. Gentleman who has just spoken will agree that what the American people think of us, and especially what they think of the Socialist Government is of the utmost importance. I am of the opinion that their confidence in this country was severely shaken when the Socialist Government was returned in 1945. [Laughter.] Hon. Members laugh—but I think that is so.

Orders of the Day — Iron and Steel Bill: Clause 11. — (Transfer to Corporation of Securities of Scheduled Companies.) (25 Jul 1949)

Vice-Admiral Ernest Taylor: America is the greatest country for private enterprise in the world and that is anathema to the Socialist Party. It is a curious commentary therefore that, in order to pull their chestnuts out of the fire, the Socialist Government go to America, get a loan of £1,000,000,000 and then have Marshall Aid; and it is entirely due to America that they and the Dominion of Canada have the full...

Orders of the Day — Iron and Steel Bill: Clause 11. — (Transfer to Corporation of Securities of Scheduled Companies.) (25 Jul 1949)

Vice-Admiral Ernest Taylor: I shall try to narrow the gauge. I was trying to point out that the country has had the advantage of the experience of nationalisation of various industries and they have learned a lesson from it—there is no question about that. It does make an enormous difference. They may have been given a mandate for nationalisation in the 1945 election, but there has been an immense rise in the price of...

China (British Policy) ( 5 May 1949)

Vice-Admiral Ernest Taylor: The right hon. Gentleman has said that the Yangtse, at the time when "Amethyst" was going up, was not a battle area. Surely, the right hon. Gentleman must know that it was a battle area with the Communists on one side of the Yangtse, quite close to it, and the Nationalists on the other side. It was obviously a battle area, but there was no battle taking place at that moment.
