Egypt (Situation) (29 Nov 1956)

Sir Ian Fraser: On the same point of order, Mr. Speaker. In the event of your allowing further questions, will you bear in mind that they could be and might be put not only by right hon. Members on both Front Benches but also by hon. Members on the back benches, on both sides of the House? May I ask, further, whether this is really a departure from the usual and long-established custom of the House that...

Orders of the Day — Homicide Bill: Clause 3. — (Provocation.) (28 Nov 1956)

Sir Ian Fraser: We want a one-legged judge.

Oral Answers to Questions — War Disabled Pensioners (Allowances) (19 Nov 1956)

Sir Ian Fraser: These proposals will need study, but may I ask my right hon. Friend whether he is aware that the extension of these special allowances to new and wider categories of disabled men will be very widely welcomed by the British Legion, the British Legion in Scotland, the Royal Air Forces Association, St. Dunstans and other societies which have recently made representations, among other things, in...

Orders of the Day — Queen's Speech: Debate on the Address (8 Nov 1956)

Sir Ian Fraser: The hon. Member for Dudley (Mr. Wigg) has acquired a reputation in this House for fair speaking and wise thought about military matters. He has made a great study of the soldier and I think that all hon. Members will agree that he has done much good for the soldier in many ways. But I hardly think that his proposal that a Royal Commission or a Committee of Inquiry should sit on these matters...

Orders of the Day — Queen's Speech: Debate on the Address (8 Nov 1956)

Sir Ian Fraser: That is no reason for having a Royal Commission. We may as well have a Royal Commission on the action of the Labour Party over Korea, because exactly the same conditions applied. There was no declaration of war. May I turn to the Amendment before the House? I shall vote against it, not because I think there is no sense in it. I think there is some. It is also very artful. But I shall vote...

Orders of the Day — Queen's Speech: Debate on the Address (8 Nov 1956)

Sir Ian Fraser: I hope that it was premeditated, because anyone who goes into battle without premeditating would be a fool. I hope that you will never do that, Sir. When this was first brought to public notice—perhaps that is a more correct way of putting it, because I did not know about the previous plans—I supported it on the grounds I have given, but when battle was joined I supported Her Majesty's...

Orders of the Day — Queen's Speech: Debate on the Address (8 Nov 1956)

Sir Ian Fraser: In principle, there is no distinction whatever.

Middle East: United Nations Resolution (United Kingdom Reply) (3 Nov 1956)

Sir Ian Fraser: May I, as a not so very junior private Member, submit that this is a matter not for the Prime Minister to determine but for you, Mr. Speaker? Private Members are entitled to their long-established rights. If it is agreeable, one or two questions can take place between leaders, as it were, by the use of the phrase "Before the right hon. Gentleman sits down"—the usual old method that we find...

Sittings of the House (2 Nov 1956)

Sir Ian Fraser: May I say that I support the Lord Privy Seal's Motion, but for slightly different reasons? It seems to me that this House should not overlook the strain upon Ministers. It seems to me utterly right that both sides of the House should have expressed their opinions freely and come to a major clash of opinion last night, but now, when our soldiers, sailors and airmen are engaged in dangerous and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Quarantine Restrictions (Rabies) (29 Oct 1956)

Sir Ian Fraser: Does not my right hon. Friend think that he and his Department are being very old-fashioned about this? Do not many countries rely, with virtual security, upon inoculation?

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Bread Subsidy (29 Oct 1956)

Sir Ian Fraser: Can the Minister say by how much a week a wage would have to be raised to compensate for this proposed rise in the price of bread and milk?

Sir Ian Fraser: They will be published well before the end of the year, will they not?

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Health: Food Hygiene Regulations (Shrimps) (29 Oct 1956)

Sir Ian Fraser: Are the figures satisfactory?

Gas Act (1948) Amendment (24 Oct 1956)

Sir Ian Fraser: We must all have every sympathy for old-age pensioners and other poor people, but I cannot imagine a more untidy or administratively less advantageous way of dealing with their plight than to pass special "titbit" Acts of Parliament to regulate the behaviour of the nationalised industries. How we should work our nationalised industries is a very grave problem, but I am sure that this cannot...

Gas Act (1948) Amendment (24 Oct 1956)

Sir Ian Fraser: My hon. Friend always has the last word, Mr. Speaker, or very nearly always. The hon. Lady says that if this Bill can take its normal course—but no one knows better than she does that it cannot possibly take its normal course. We are within two or three Parliamentary days of the end of the Session. So, because she is unable to catch your eye, Mr. Speaker, and make her point in some debate,...
