Capital Punishment (Royal Commission's Report) (10 Feb 1955)

Mr George Porter: Is it not a fact that there is positive proof that wherever there is the remotest contact between people and the murderer, there is no difficulty in getting public opinion, in that particular case and for that person, in favour of the abolition of the death penalty?

Representation of the People (Parliamentary Constituencies) (26 Jan 1955)

Mr George Porter: I endorse all that has been said by my colleagues representing Leeds, but I do not intend to cover the same ground. In introducing the Order the Minister did me and my constituency the honour of a special reference to the representations which we made both to the Commissioners and to the right hon. and gallant Gentleman himself. He tried to tell us that our representations had been given...

Representation of the People (Parliamentary Constituencies) (26 Jan 1955)

Mr George Porter: I suggest from that point of view that there has been no justification in changing the name as has been suggested at the moment. I cannot for the life of me see why consideration is given to the change of name at all, because, as the old saying is, "The rose by any other name would smell as sweet," and I can assure the right hon. Gentleman that the Central division by any other name would...

Orders of the Day — Queen's Speech: Debate on the Address ( 7 Dec 1954)

Mr George Porter: Further to that point of order. On the previous occasion, when my right hon. Friend was called to order, you said, Mr. Speaker, that the matter was out of order. I suggest that having given a definite Ruling that a matter is out of order, no matter what latitude was given before your Ruling, you cannot give any latitude to anybody now.

Debate on the Address [First Day] (30 Nov 1954)

Mr George Porter: I hope that my hon. Friend the Member for Itchen (Mr. Morley) will not expect me to follow his remarks. I should like to begin my remarks by referring to something which was said by the hon. Member for Dorset, North (Mr. Crouch). Like a good many hon. Members on the other side of the House, he is labouring under the delusion that, because popular opinion has compelled the Tory Party to...

Letters to Members (MR. Speaker's Ruling) ( 9 Mar 1954)

Mr George Porter: I should like you to amplify the reference in your statement to the question I submitted to you on the previous occasion, Mr. Speaker. On that occasion I asked whether, in giving consideration to this matter, you would determine the actual relationship between the Minister concerned and the hon. Member who wrote to him. I suggested on that occasion that correspondence between an individual...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Furniture Industry (Standards) (23 Feb 1954)

Mr George Porter: Is the hon. and learned Gentleman aware that the adoption of the Kite mark would not only guarantee the quality of the goods but would also guarantee the conditions under which men and women working in the industry were employed? For that reason, if for no other, will he use his further efforts in order to make the introduction of the Kite mark universal in the trade?

Oral Answers to Questions — Building Society, Manchester (Registrar's Inquiries) (23 Feb 1954)

Mr George Porter: Is it not a fact that some letters sent to Members of Parliament are net confidential and that others may be, but surely every letter sent from a Member of Parliament to a Minister is confidential?

Mr George Porter: asked the President of the Board of Trade how many British furniture manufacturers have now adopted the British Standards Institution Kite mark in reference to their production of items of household furniture.

Oral Answers to Questions — British Army: Furniture (Kite Mark) (16 Feb 1954)

Mr George Porter: In view of the assurance given by the Minister when we changed from the Utility Scheme to the D Scheme that we had no reason to assume that the standard of furniture would go down, may I ask the Minister what he is doing at present to put that into operation by seeing that every manufacturer of furniture adopts the Kite mark?

Air Corporations Bill: Glassware (11 Nov 1953)

Mr George Porter: In view of the statement which the Parliamentary Secretary has just made, to the effect that the matter does not arise out of the Order, will he now proceed to deal with something which has been suggested by the mover of the Motion and which is within the Order, that it is the opinion of the trade that the Order, passed by the Labour Government, in 1948, gave an impetus to the trade? They...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill (20 May 1953)

Mr George Porter: I have a good point to put to the hon. Gentleman if he will give way.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill (20 May 1953)

Mr George Porter: The hon. Gentleman says that a loss of £1,500,000 is involved. Obviously that amount must include what was obtained in the past from amateur clubs when they paid tax. If the hon. Gentleman says that the Revenue cannot afford to lose £1.500,000 in taxation, I suggest that he is not losing that amount because he is not giving that amount away.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill (20 May 1953)

Mr George Porter: I do not know whether a further plea will be of value on this matter, but I should like to tell the Financial Secretary, with respect to his assumption that he is the only person who can decide what is a good point, that his points appear to be based upon estimates while the points which we are making in support of this Amendment are based on positive facts. The Chancellor of the Exchequer,...
