Oral Answers to Questions — Central Africa (Victoria Falls Conference) (9 Jul 1963)

Mr Evelyn Strachey: Is the First Secretary aware that we on this side certainly wish to congratulate him on this timely success and on his performance on"Panorama" last night? Is he also aware, however, that his success at the Victoria Falls conference was on the easier part of the problem and that the more difficult part, the future of Southern Rhodesia, still lies ahead of him?

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Jute (2 Jul 1963)

Mr Evelyn Strachey: Will the President of the Board of Trade recognise that if he did obey the dictates of the court he would have a tragic unemployment problem on his hands in Dundee, and will he think very carefully of the vital interests of Dundee before he does anything of the sort?

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: South Africa (Supply of Arms) (2 Jul 1963)

Mr Evelyn Strachey: If the right hon. Gentleman thinks that the Government's policy is perfectly defensible, will not he give us the details of it so that we may judge whether it is or not?

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: I.L.O. Conference, Geneva (1 Jul 1963)

Mr Evelyn Strachey: Does not the right hon. Gentleman agree that the Government will very soon have to choose whether to stand by the members of the Commonwealth on these issues or to go on with these equivocal votes about South Africa? Ought not Commonwealth interests here to take a very high place in their consideration?

Oral Answers to Questions — Federation of Malaysia: Discussions (27 Jun 1963)

Mr Evelyn Strachey: Would not the Secretary of State agree that on the narrower question of the realisation of the Federation of Malaysia it is not so much a question of further ascertaining the wishes of the people, for a great attempt has been made to do that, as of securing a successful financial settlement between the various Governments? In view of the very great importance of this whole area to the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Electricity: Southern Rhodesia (20 Jun 1963)

Mr Evelyn Strachey: As Mr. Field has made that statement, would not the Prime Minister think it better either to confirm or deny it, so that we know where we are in this matter? Assuming that Mr. Field is accurate, as one must surely assume, is it not an important part of the data on which we can reach a decision to have confirmation of his statement?

Orders of the Day — Commonwealth Development Bill (19 Jun 1963)

Mr Evelyn Strachey: Just now the Under-Secretary of State said that the Bill would be welcomed, and he is quite right. We welcome it very much. But in doing so, we say, "At last", because, as he truly pointed out, we have said on very many occasions that we wanted this Bill. We think that it has been introduced very late in the day indeed. We pestered the Secretary of State on the matter. I have personally...

Orders of the Day — Commonwealth Development Bill (19 Jun 1963)

Mr Evelyn Strachey: Yes, it had lots of them. I do not believe that a Conservative Government would ever have set up the Corporation. But had they done so, I do not think that the teething troubles could have been avoided. The C.D.C. had to find out how to do its job, and that it has done. I am perfectly willing to give credit to the present Government for allowing the Corporation to discover its scope. But I...

Orders of the Day — Commonwealth Development Bill (19 Jun 1963)

Mr Evelyn Strachey: I beg pardon. That is correct, paragraph 4(7). Seven million pounds of exports are generated and, therefore, there is a failure on the balance of payments of £6 million. I should not like offhand to pin my faith on that exact calculation—I think it a difficult one to make—and to compare the exports generated and how they have been paid for. But it is a good claim of the Corporation and...

Orders of the Day — Commonwealth Development Bill (19 Jun 1963)

Mr Evelyn Strachey: It was then a Colonial Development Corporation and a Colonial Bill.

Orders of the Day — Commonwealth Development Bill (19 Jun 1963)

Mr Evelyn Strachey: It is for that reason that I proposed no raising of the ceiling. I should have thought it unnecessary yet—till we come to it.

Southern and Northern Rhodesia (Conference) (18 Jun 1963)

Mr Evelyn Strachey: Is the First Secretary aware that hon. Members on this side of the House think that it is high time that Her Majesty's Government did arrive at a decision on the question of the independence of Southern Rhodesia, and that this decision ought to be that independence cannot be granted while the present constitution of Southern Rhodesia remains unamended? Is he further aware that these...

Southern and Northern Rhodesia (Conference) (18 Jun 1963)

Mr Evelyn Strachey: The First Secretary has said that he would maintain his position on the broadening of the franchise in Southern Rhodesia. May we be assured that he means that he makes this condition of the granting of independence, because that is the real issue before the House?

Oral Answers to Questions — Science: The Gambia (Elections) (28 May 1963)

Mr Evelyn Strachey: Would not the Secretary of State agree that it is vitally important that we should not even appear to play fast and loose with the Constitution of this Colony? [Laughter.] Hon. Members opposite may think this a joke, but, after all, constitutional development in Africa is fairly important. The only possible way of putting this position right is to prepare a new register and hold new...

Oral Answers to Questions — Science: The Gambia (Elections) (28 May 1963)

Mr Evelyn Strachey: If the Secretary of State says that the existing register is quite all right or, at least, no worse than any future one, what is the objection to holding new elections on it? The right hon. Gentleman is saying that no new register would be any better than the present one. Therefore, why not hold elections on it?

Oral Answers to Questions — Wireless and Television: India (Military Aid) (7 May 1963)

Mr Evelyn Strachey: Would not the Prime Minister agree that, if he continues to link the question of an agreement between India and Pakistan, which we all desire, with the settlement of long-term military aid to India, the probable result will be to leave India helpless and not to secure an agreement with Pakistan?

Oral Answers to Questions — India (Military Aid) (2 May 1963)

Mr Evelyn Strachey: asked the Prime Minister to what extent he has made the giving of military aid to India in connection with the Chinese attack on her conditional on India reaching a settlement with Pakistan on the subject of Kashmir.

Oral Answers to Questions — India (Military Aid) (2 May 1963)

Mr Evelyn Strachey: Would not the Prime Minister agree that, while we all regard a settlement of the Kashmir problem as highly desirable, it would be a great mistake, and probably entirely self-defeating, to link to this question the question of arms aid to India to repel the Chinese aggression? Would it not be much better to keep these things completely separate?

Orders of the Day — War Pension (Miss C. Thomson) (30 Apr 1963)

Mr Evelyn Strachey: I wish to raise the case of a constituent of mine, a Miss Charlotte Thomson, and the refusal of the Ministry of Pensions and National Insurance, under successive Ministers, to grant her pension. I can describe the circumstances of the case very briefly. During the late war, Miss Thomson was passed A.1 for and joined the A.T.S. Comparatively shortly after joining, she showed signs of...

Orders of the Day — War Pension (Miss C. Thomson) (30 Apr 1963)

Mr Evelyn Strachey: Oh, yes.
