Orders of the Day — King's Speech: Debate on the Address (27 Oct 1948)

Mr William Brown: The actual words used in the Manifesto are: The Communist disdains to conceal the fact that his ends can only be obtained by the forcible overthrow of all existing social conditions. That is quoted verbatim from Marx' Manifesto, and if that does not mean that the Communist works for the violent overthrow of existing society, it does not mean anything at all. Because that is its method, it...

Orders of the Day — King's Speech: Debate on the Address (27 Oct 1948)

Mr William Brown: Puerile pedantry will now instruct me ! It is a sub-department of a bigger department. I really knew that some time ago. We must all the time distinguish between the Russian people and the dark and dreadful philosophy which inspires the activities of their Government today. I agree with what was said by the hon. Member who preceded me that wherever one goes in the world the common people do...

Orders of the Day — King's Speech: Debate on the Address (27 Oct 1948)

Orders of the Day — Parliament Bill (21 Sep 1948)

Mr William Brown: Inasmuch as the Bill tells us when the Lords must yield to the Commons, is it not proper for any hon. Member to argue when the Lords ought to yield to the Commons? Surely that is in the Bill.

Oral Answers to Questions — British Army: Major-General Vulliamy (U.S.A. Visit) (13 Jul 1948)

Oral Answers to Questions — British Army: Civil Servant (Disciplinary Action) (13 Jul 1948)

Mr William Brown: While recognising and fully endorsing what the Minister has said about the impropriety of an individual civil servant seeking to secure promotion by outside influence—a point upon which all civil servants' trade unions are utterly at one with the Government—may I ask the Secretary of State for War two questions: whether he will distinguish sharply between a letter from an individual civil...

Orders of the Day — BRITISH NATIONALITY BILL [Lords]: Clause 1. — (British nationality.) (13 Jul 1948)

Mr William Brown: On a point of Order. Are we discussing the Amendment to Clause 1, page 1, line 7, or are we having, under the guise of a Debate of that particular point, a discussion upon the broad differences between the Government and the Opposition covering the whole Bill? If we are having the latter, it seems to me that what we are now listening to is in Order, and that, indeed, that may be the more...

Orders of the Day — BRITISH NATIONALITY BILL [Lords] (13 Jul 1948)

Mr William Brown: Will the Attorney-General make this matter plain in terms that I can understand? Am I right in assuming that after we have passed this Bill a Scotsman will still be a Scotsman, a Welshman still a Welshman, an Irishman still an Irishman? May I also ask whether, although an Australian will be entitled to be described either as a British subject or as a Commonwealth citizen, there is no manner...

Mr William Brown: Verminhood.

Orders of the Day — BRITISH NATIONALITY BILL [Lords] (13 Jul 1948)

Mr William Brown: The discussion on this Amendment is different in character from the discussion on the first three Amendments. The argument then was pre-eminently a legal one as to the precise effect upon the status of individuals of this or that combination of words as against other combinations. The argument here seems to be entirely different in kind and degree. The issue here is whether we are to import,...
