Orders of the Day — Statutory Instruments Bill ( 6 Nov 1945)

Major Sir Robert Conant: I should have thought that the two points to which he referred were the most important in the Bill. Surely people should not be imprisoned for offences of which they know nothing. That is of extreme importance, especially to those who are imprisoned. I am sorry to find that the hon. Gentleman is supporting a Bill of which he cannot approve very much. I would like to add my protest to that of...

Man-Power (Release from Forces) (15 Nov 1944)

Major Sir Robert Conant: I suppose it would be wrong to assume that because this plan is so very different from that produced after the last war, it must be quite clear and workable.

Those are great...

Man-Power (Release from Forces) (15 Nov 1944)

However, if I am wrong, I am only too glad, but I do see that as a practical difficulty. Demobilisation must be...
