Orders of the Day — Hungary (19 Nov 1956)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: I wonder why the hon. Member did not mention the question of Kashmir, which arises later in that extract from the newspaper he has just quoted.

Orders of the Day — Hungary (19 Nov 1956)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: I should like to intervene for one or two moments to say that so much of what was said by the hon. Member for Pembroke (Mr. Donnelly) would be agreed to by hon. Members on both sides of the House. I was intensely interested in what he said, as I am sure most hon. Members were. On the other hand, I could not help being struck by the general thesis upon which he was working, namely, that so far...

Orders of the Day — Hungary (19 Nov 1956)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: We were trying to discuss this matter very much on nonparty lines. It is a national problem. I do not think that in his quieter moments the hon. Member would claim—I certainly would not—that any one party in this House had a monopoly of skill which would enable it to talk to Russia any better than any other individual or party. I do not think that that would be a fair claim from either...

Air Estimates, 1955–56: MR. George Ward's Statement (10 Mar 1955)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: With a great deal of what we have just heard from the right hon. and learned Member for Rowley Regis and Tipton (Mr. A. Henderson) we can all agree, but I felt that we were possibly putting the Royal Air Force rather out of perspective. Was he not trying to put upon the Royal Air Force responsibilities which really should be spread far wider and not all be put on one of Her Majesty's...

Air Estimates, 1955–56: MR. George Ward's Statement (10 Mar 1955)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: I think that the hon. Member will find the evidence in the Report of the Select Committee. There was some objection to the camp being made a permanent camp on that stretch of country because the area is of great geological interest. At the time, that impressed the minds of those who were responsible for constructing the camp. I do not want to be unfair about this, but this question of...

Air Estimates, 1955–56: MR. George Ward's Statement (10 Mar 1955)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: Were they F.86D's?

Air Estimates, 1955–56: MR. George Ward's Statement (10 Mar 1955)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: I query the word "effective." It surely cannot be true that the F.86D is the only effective night fighter. Would the hon. Gentleman care to comment upon the report in "Aviation Week," which says: … the M.P. from Dudley has 'flipped his wig.' This is a prime example of how a poorly informed politician can befuddle the public on the real military security problem with his raucous cries of...

Air Estimates, 1955–56: MR. George Ward's Statement (10 Mar 1955)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: It did not.

Air Estimates, 1955–56: MR. George Ward's Statement (10 Mar 1955)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: It did not do that.

Air Estimates, 1955–56: MR. George Ward's Statement (10 Mar 1955)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: I read "Aviation Week."

Air Estimates, 1955–56: MR. George Ward's Statement (10 Mar 1955)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: Against what?

Air Estimates, 1955–56: MR. George Ward's Statement (10 Mar 1955)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: They have not.

Air Estimates, 1955–56: MR. George Ward's Statement (10 Mar 1955)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: Nonsense.

Air Estimates, 1955–56: MR. George Ward's Statement (10 Mar 1955)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: Withdraw.

Anglo-Brazilian Trade (29 Jul 1954)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: Can my right hon. Friend tell the House the extent of our indebtedness through the system of E.C.G.D. in the Brazilian market? Is it not the case that if the advice had been taken of those best informed on these matters and the Government had taken action dictated not by political considerations but by commercial transactions the extent of that debt would not be nearly as great as it is today?

Orders of the Day — Safety in Employment (Inspection and Safety Organisation) Bill (26 Feb 1954)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: The hon. Member could carry that story a little further. Can he tell us whether, as a result of these schemes, those countries are succeeding in reducing the accident rate as fast as we are?

Orders of the Day — Safety in Employment (Inspection and Safety Organisation) Bill (26 Feb 1954)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: The hon. Gentleman has based much of his argument on a comparison between casualty rates in the Armed Forces and in industry. We cannot be happy about either, and, obviously, at the moment we are unhappy about the latter. I am sure that the hon. Gentleman, if he wishes to put an absolutely fair and objective picture before the House—we all desire to do that; this is not a party issue but a...

Orders of the Day — Safety in Employment (Inspection and Safety Organisation) Bill (26 Feb 1954)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: We have all been interested in what the hon. Member for Derbyshire, South-East (Mr. Champion) has been saying, and I hope to refer to it later. I thank the hon. Member for Dewsbury (Mr. William Paling) for introducing this subject, which is of such vast national importance that it is right and proper that it should be debated. I doubt whether a Private Member's Bill on Friday is a big enough...

Orders of the Day — Safety in Employment (Inspection and Safety Organisation) Bill (26 Feb 1954)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: That power exists today in exactly the same way. It is open to the shop steward or leader, and, indeed, it is his duty, to report to the factory inspector where he finds any danger.

By default, we show words related to your search term, like “cycle” and “cycles” in a search for cycling. Putting the word in quotes, like "cycling", will stop this.

Excluding these words

You can also do this from the main search box by putting a minus sign before words you don’t want: like hunting -fox

We also support a bunch of boolean search modifiers, like AND and NEAR, for precise searching.
