Class I: Civil Aviation (26 Jan 1945)

Sir Alfred Beit: I presume that legislation will have to be introduced to establish an Under-Secretary and that it will presumably transfer B.O.A.C. as well as civil aviation to the new Minister.

Class I: Civil Aviation (26 Jan 1945)

Sir Alfred Beit: That is perfectly satisfactory, because the implication is that when legislation does come before us the control of B.O.A.C. together with the Civil Aviation Department will be transferred to the Minister.

Class I: Civil Aviation (26 Jan 1945)

Sir Alfred Beit: That makes it clear, and I hope that my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for the Isle of Wight (Captain Macdonald) will be satisfied that administratively B.O.A.C. and the Department of Civil Aviation will be transferred to the new Minister by legislation, and that until that legislation can be introduced special arrangements have been reached to achieve the same effect. That is an...

Orders of the Day — Representation of the People Bill: New Clause. — (Abolition of plural voting.) (17 Jan 1945)

Sir Alfred Beit: If the noble Lady will allow me to say so, she has really destroyed her own argument by her opening remarks, when she said that she had no objection to universities being represented in this House.

Railways (Control Agreement) (21 Dec 1944)

Sir Alfred Beit: I must say that I find myself in a very large measure of agreement with what the hon. Member for Peckham (Mr. Silkin) has just said. I ask myself what purpose my right hon. Friend thought he might be serving in raising this matter again to-day. I feel absolutely certain that he is really aware of the fact that he is beating against a door which is not only closed, but barred and bolted. I...

Railways (Control Agreement) (21 Dec 1944)

Sir Alfred Beit: Yes, but the railways' standard revenue is very much the same as the return on capital to which my hon. Friend referred in his interruption.

Orders of the Day — Cinematograph Films (20 Dec 1944)

Sir Alfred Beit: In spite of that, we should not dismiss too rapidly the very important Orders which are before us and which will tie up the future of the British film industry for rather a greater number of years than most hon. Members who have spoken so far would desire. We have had, for the most part, some very clear speeches, especially those from hon. Members who are associated with the film industry,...

Orders of the Day — Cinematograph Films (20 Dec 1944)

Sir Alfred Beit: I have on more than one occasion asked supplementary questions on those Questions put forward by my hon. Friend the Member for North Lambeth (Mr. G.
