Orders of the Day — Territorial Army Premises (Tenancies) (15 Apr 1947)

Mr Frederick Montague: I should like to back up the appeal that has been made by my hon. Friend the Member for East Islington (Mr. E. Fletcher). Both he and I represent constituencies adjacent to the constituency in which this proposed eviction will take place, the Member for which has been away from the House seriously ill. It is in the borough of Islington, and we both know the housing conditions in that borough,...

Orders of the Day — Civic Restaurants Bill.: Clause 1. — (Power of local authorities to establish restaurants.) (17 Feb 1947)

Mr Frederick Montague: I intend to refer to the question of the children and adolescents in a few moments. If I thought for one moment that allowing local authorities to apply for licences for civic restaurants would lead to greater excess and more drinking among adolescents and young people, I would not vote for the Amendment. I do not champion drunkenness or excessive drinking. I do not champion abuse of any...

Orders of the Day — Civic Restaurants Bill.: Clause 1. — (Power of local authorities to establish restaurants.) (17 Feb 1947)

Mr Frederick Montague: I am going to give the hon. Member a point. I was dining in a restaurant attached to this House with my hon. Friend. I had a glass of that effervescent stuff of which we are told that "Guinness is good for you." We conversed quite intelligently on political matters. I have met the hon. Member in this House every day since, and, believe me, I have not noticed the slightest moral depreciation...

Orders of the Day — Civic Restaurants Bill.: Clause 1. — (Power of local authorities to establish restaurants.) (17 Feb 1947)

Mr Frederick Montague: There are dining rooms where drink is sold and, also, downstairs there is a drinking bar open the whole time that the House sits, and to it visitors can be invited. Is it seriously said that there is more, or even as much, inducement to excessive drinking because a glass of wine may be taken in the dining room of the House, than there is encouragement to excessive drinking in the boozing bar...

Orders of the Day — Civic Restaurants Bill (10 Feb 1947)

Mr Frederick Montague: I would not have risen to take part in the Third Reading Debate but for the references made by my hon. Friend the Member for Chorley (Mr. Kenyon) to what I had said on the Report stage. I thought that the question of the licences which might be applied for had been thoroughly discussed and really settled on the Report stage, but I have been quoted by the hon. Member for Chorley as saying that...

Orders of the Day — Civic Restaurants Bill (10 Feb 1947)

Mr Frederick Montague: The matter was referred to in a speech of mine and has been quoted here tonight. I wanted to make it perfectly clear why I made the remarks I did. However, I bow to your Ruling, Mr. Deputy-Speaker, as I do not want to infringe the Rules of the House. There is not much else I wish to say because I spoke on the Report stage when this drink issue was under discussion. But some other things have...

Orders of the Day — Civic Restaurants Bill (10 Feb 1947)

Mr Frederick Montague: The hon. Member for South Edinburgh (Sir W. Darling) is not Mr. Speaker or Mr. Deputy-Speaker. If I am out of Order—

Orders of the Day — Civic Restaurants Bill (10 Feb 1947)

Mr Frederick Montague: —I am prepared to give way to the officer of the House who is responsible for seeing that the Debates are properly conducted, but I do not think I am out of Order in what I am saying. We have not to go very far from this House to find, for instance, Lyons Corner House, which is at the top of Whitehall. It is crowded day and night by people, not all of the working classes in the crude sense...

Orders of the Day — Civic Restaurants Bill (10 Feb 1947)

Mr Frederick Montague: I see. The objection of the hon. and gallant Member is to an off-licence

Orders of the Day — Civic Restaurants Bill (10 Feb 1947)

Mr Frederick Montague: This continual interruption of business is being abused, and I must ask to be allowed to develop my argument. I am not discussing the merits of an off-licence versus an ordinary licence. What irritates me is this reflection upon the class to which I belong.

Orders of the Day — Civic Restaurants Bill (10 Feb 1947)

Mr Frederick Montague: It is not nonsense for hon. Members opposite who would be the first to object if their own personal habits of life were interfered with. They talk about supporting the morals of the working class of this country. So far as that is concerned, the working class should be left alone. One hon. Member in the course of this Debate referred to the Continental method. I know the Continent a little...
