Young officers go to...

Commander Redvers Prior: In the course of the Debate much stress has been laid on the production of coal and, except for the brilliant speech of the hon.

The Minister for the post-war period has the terrific task of organising the use of our generating power in the most economical manner possible. Take,...

Commander Redvers Prior: I beg to move, in page 2, line 9, leave out "his former office," and insert: the office to which he would have been entitled had he not proceeded on war service.

The purposes of...

Secondly, will a United Kingdom merchant be in order for asking for guarantees to export commodities of foreign origin lying in the entrepôt Port of London to, say,...

Orders of the Day — Export Guarantees Bill: Clause 3. — (Financial provisions.) (8 Feb 1945)

Commander Redvers Prior: I have worked for over 20 years in the commodity markets in many parts of the world, and may I, therefore, be permitted to thank the President of the Board of Trade for having included primary products in this Bill? The usual manner of financing commodities is through the London money market. In pre-war years this market lost much of its elasticity and drive, and, in fact, during the Munich...

Orders of the Day — Export Guarantees Bill: Clause 3. — (Financial provisions.) (8 Feb 1945)

Commander Redvers Prior: The only criticism that I would make of the Bill is that it is too small. Manufacturers have already written to me saying that they will use this Bill to a very great extent, and the President of the Board of Trade has already indicated that that difficulty may very largely be overcome. I desire to thank the President for having done so much to give help to a very deserving body of men, who,...

Orders of the Day — Class I: Foreign Policy (30 Jan 1945)

Commander Redvers Prior: If I may say so with all courtesy, the hon. Member for Ipswich (Mr. Stokes) made a most pro-Nazi speech, a speech which will give immense satisfaction to the German High Command. What we are all searching for is the peace of the world, not only in our own time but in the future. I have had dealings with many young Nazis. I picked one out of the sea not long ago, and the first thing he said to...

Orders of the Day — Class I: Foreign Policy (30 Jan 1945)

Commander Redvers Prior: I am unaware of him, but let me correct myself. Many more soldiers and generals have come out of East Prussia than men of peace. We are told that we have to get the consent of the East Prussians before their will to war is stifled for good. Exception is taken to the French advancing to their natural boundary, the Rhine. In my humble opinion unless the means to make war are removed from...
