Orders of the Day — Festival of Britain (Sunday Opening) Bill (23 Nov 1950)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: I am consumed with admiration at the learning of the hon. Member, but my grandmother did teach me some things. To put it at its lowest, I would say that Sunday is a day when we should do our utmost to employ as little labour as possible to maintain the difference of Sunday, and it is a day when we should give more study, even than on any other day, to the interests and welfare of our fellow...

Orders of the Day — Festival of Britain (Sunday Opening) Bill (23 Nov 1950)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: The police. I hope it is not an unpleasant word to the hon. Member. I assure him I will use it as lightly as possible.

Orders of the Day — Festival of Britain (Sunday Opening) Bill (23 Nov 1950)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: The hon. Member may be interested in greyhound racing tracks, or he may not. I am interested in the Festival of Britain, and I am talking about the police in connection with the Festival of Britain—[HON. MEMBERS: "And Sunday labour."]—and Sunday labour. Actually, as we know, it is impossible to open greyhound race tracks on Sunday, and the question of the police at greyhound tracks on...

Orders of the Day — Festival of Britain (Sunday Opening) Bill (23 Nov 1950)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: May I reassure the right hon. and learned Gentleman? I had a feeling that Cremorne Gardens were mentioned in literature at some point, and my investigations carried me to delve into the lowest social depths of Victorian life; and therefore, I hope that the right hon. and learned Gentleman will be extremely careful, whatever may be said in their brochure, that the promoters do not intend to...

Orders of the Day — Festival of Britain (Sunday Opening) Bill (23 Nov 1950)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: The hon. Member is so quick off the mark that he gets there before anybody else has started. These are the main points made by Sir Henry French. He says that the Amusements Park is only a very small area. It is the awful argument that it is "only a small thing." Then he goes on to say that there would not be much noise in the Amusements Park. I agree with those hon. Members who say what an...

Orders of the Day — Festival of Britain (Sunday Opening) Bill (23 Nov 1950)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: I think the hon. and learned Gentleman is getting things out of balance. This is a new enterprise. It is starting up under the existing law, but the existing law is to be amended in order that the enterprise can achieve success, and there is no analogy in the examples he has attempted to give. I still remain profoundly shocked that such a doctrine should have been persuaded into the letter of...

Orders of the Day — Festival of Britain (Sunday Opening) Bill (23 Nov 1950)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: What possible right have I to claim control over the fun fairs in my constituency? I do not want it to go out from this country that it is typical of British life today that amusements and all sorts of things should be open on Sunday, adding unnecessarily to the number of those who labour on today. I stick to that. Rightly or wrongly, the proposals in this Bill offend a large number of...

Orders of the Day — Festival of Britain (Sunday Opening) Bill (23 Nov 1950)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: I did mention this matter before, when the right hon. Gentleman was speaking, but do I understand from what the right hon. and learned Attorney-General has said that in future. should any undesirable event occur in the amusement gardens, the Lord President would be willing to answer Questions in that respect in this House?

Orders of the Day — Festival of Britain (Sunday Opening) Bill (23 Nov 1950)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: I did answer that point in the course of my speech when I was interrupted. May I point out that it is an existing establishment? It is not adding by legislation to the amount of labour employed on Sunday.

Orders of the Day — Restoration of Pre-War Trade Practices Bill: Clause 1. — (Period to Which Obligation to Restore Trade Practices Relates.) (15 Nov 1950)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: I am glad of the last few sentences that the Minister added to what he said, because they relieve my mind of any doubt I might have had about his fairness of approach to this problem I should like to add one argument to those brought forward by my right hon. Friend. There is very considerable psychological value in the proposal set out in the Amendment. Is it not wiser, where we would be...

Orders of the Day — Restoration of Pre-War Trade Practices Bill: Clause 1. — (Period to Which Obligation to Restore Trade Practices Relates.) (15 Nov 1950)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: I rise with some disappointment, because I had hoped that the Minister would re-submit this matter for re-examination. I am not particularly concerned whether it was an affirmative resolution on the part of those who saw this proposal in the Bill, whether it was negative, or whether it was simply letting it go by without comment. But I am impressed by the value of the argument used by my two...

Orders of the Day — Restoration of Pre-War Trade Practices Bill: Clause 1. — (Period to Which Obligation to Restore Trade Practices Relates.) (15 Nov 1950)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: I see that he agrees. But, of course, it is impossible, and because it is impossible, that makes this Amendment particularly necessary. Then it is important for all to be on a fair basis and not only for some to be on an unfair basis. The Parliamentary Secretary seemed to visualise a state of affairs where it might be possible for an Order in Council to be laid before the House which really...

Orders of the Day — Restoration of Pre-War Trade Practices Bill: Clause 1. — (Period to Which Obligation to Restore Trade Practices Relates.) (15 Nov 1950)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: I was criticising the fact that the Parliamentary Secretary would not recognise that he was still maintaining different principles at different levels under the same order. But I was impressed because many of the points which he put would, if contained in any suggested draft order, appear to be so absurd that they would undermine the prestige of his own Minister. I would like some reassurance...

Housing (Rate of Interest) (25 Jul 1950)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: If that is the attitude which he adopts, how does he explain the attitude of one of the supporters of the Government in attempting to call a count in this House in order that the whole thing should be obliterated and hushed up?

Housing (Rate of Interest) (25 Jul 1950)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: Before the hon. Member for Perry Barr (Mr. Poole) takes the step he has suggested, I think it would be as well if he were to get some more information on which to act, because unless he knows the facts of the case it will probably be rather difficult for him to vote. Of course, he may be "whipped" into the Lobby—but perhaps it may be improper for me to say so. However, he should really be...

Housing (Rate of Interest) (25 Jul 1950)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: That question, Mr. Deputy-Speaker, was posed by my hon. Friend the Member for Kingston-upon-Thames. He, in fact, was the only Member to raise this issue. [HON. MEMBERS: "Oh."] He was the only Member to raise this issue, and no hon. Member on the other side of the House can deny that. That question has not been answered, and no attempt was made to answer it by any representative of the...

Housing (Rate of Interest) (25 Jul 1950)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: I certainly will not follow that point. I think it might involve us in a wider sphere of debate than would be suitable at this time in the morning. But I would most earnestly ask that there should be some indication given from the Government that there will be no recurrence of this sort of affair at all. No apology has been made. We have seen the published apology, and I only wish that the...

Housing (Rate of Interest) (25 Jul 1950)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: I am a very junior Member of this House and I would ask the right hon. Gentleman not to judge the rest of the Debate on my standard. But I do think it would be a very good thing if some right hon. Gentleman on the Government Front Bench were to get up and give the House an undertaking that this sort of thing would not happen again. We are entitled to that. The Parliamentary Secretary has had...
