Orders of the Day — Juries Bill: Clause 17. — (Abolition of Special Juries.) (14 Feb 1949)

Mr William Brown: Again I hate to interrupt, but the hon. Gentleman is imputing to me a lack of experience in this matter. Perhaps I am entitled to say that on the only occasion when I appeared in the High Court on a charge of libel it was before a special jury, and it was only the circumstance that I defended myself and was not defended by a lawyer, which enabled me to get away so well.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transjordan: Hungary (Cardinal Mindszenty, Arrest) (2 Feb 1949)

Mr William Brown: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that irrespective of religion or politics, there is in this country a most intense feeling on this subject of the arrest of the Cardinal, and that he would have the backing of the whole population and hon. Members of this House, except the Communists and their fellow travellers, in making the strongest possible representations to prevent the murder of an...

Oral Answers to Questions — Germany and Austria: Civil Service (Communism and Fascism) (24 Jan 1949)

Mr William Brown: Does it emerge from the Prime Minister's reply that only 17 cases of alleged association with Communist or Fascist organisations have come to light in the whole of the public service, because the relation between that figure and what I know to be the case is very distant indeed; and is the Prime Minister satisfied that the steps taken are adequate to secure the protection of the public...

Orders of the Day — Landlord and Tenant (Rent Control) Bill (24 Jan 1949)

Mr William Brown: There is one impact which the Bill makes about which I am not clear. Let us take the case in which a tenancy now exists which has been rent-controlled since before the war. Therefore, the rent has not been increased at all. It comes under the original Rent Restrictions Acts. The tenant wants to move elsewhere and advertises that he is willing to surrender a short tenancy to a new tenant at...

Orders of the Day — Broadcasting, Far East (Agreement) (20 Jan 1949)

Why do they choose Malaya? I should have thought there were a good many places in the Far East less liable to danger, internally and externally, in the years to come than Malaya. We all know what has happened...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Prison Officers' Clubs (Licences) (18 Jan 1949)

Mr William Brown: Is there any earthly reason whatever why we should not treat these officers as grown-up men; and is there any reason why they should be any less free to order what they like than a citizen in a public house or we within the smoking room?
