Sir Douglas Dodds-Parker: It is a question of a swing of emphasis rather than the change of policy which has taken place under the present Government.

Sir Douglas Dodds-Parker: As I found on a recent visit to the still dependent territories how much the islanders appreciated my right hon.

Friend, on the basis of my own commercial experience, that without permanent sea and air communications there can be no proper development of these islands? Will he...

European Economic Community (20 Jan 1971)

Sir Douglas Dodds-Parker: As the last back-bench speaker tonight from the Government side, may I congratulate the three maiden speakers on very useful, witty and constructive contributions? I am sure that if they speak as briefly as they did tonight, they will earn not only your praise, Mr. Speaker, but also the gratitude of their colleagues on both sides of the House. In all cases, they succeeded good and popular...

Sir Douglas Dodds-Parker: First, I should like to congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Stretford (Mr. Churchill) on his excellent maiden speech.

I think that when...

Orders of the Day — Foreign Affairs ( 9 Dec 1970)

Sir Douglas Dodds-Parker: That helped. If he had been Prime Minister before things would have been easier. The right hon.

Gentleman became slightly political, and I say that to my generation the Fulham by-election, which is one of the things that is...

Orders of the Day — Foreign Affairs ( 9 Dec 1970)

Sir Douglas Dodds-Parker: No, I do not. We have no reason to believe that the United States sponsored that coup. There was a similar occurrence in Turkey in about 1960, which eventually came right. These things happen, but they bear no comparison with the military occupation of Czechoslovakia in 1968, and I have never heard any suggestion before from the benches opposite that there is any comparison between the two...

Orders of the Day — Foreign Affairs ( 9 Dec 1970)

Sir Douglas Dodds-Parker: From reading the newspapers, which I imagine the hon. Gentleman does from time to time although, listening to him now, one feels that he has not read them very recently.
