Adjournment (Christmas) (20 Dec 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: I want to answer that before I give way. I do not know how long Mr. Speaker will allow this debate to continue. I want to answer these questions, which were asked some time ago. I wish to make it clear that there was no joint decision in advance of hostilities about the use of a veto. There was no joint decision about the use of the French Air Force in advance of hostilities.

Adjournment (Christmas) (20 Dec 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: Let me finish my sentence. I want to say this on the question of foreknowledge, and to say it quite bluntly to the House, that there was not foreknowledge that Israel would attack Egypt—there was not. But there was something else. There was—we knew it perfectly well—a risk of it, and in the event of the risk of it certain discussions and conversations took place, as, I think, was...

Northern Ireland (Situation) (19 Dec 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: With your permission, Mr. Speaker, and that of the House, I wish to make a statement on the situation in Northern Ireland. Her Majesty's Government have the greatest sympathy for the people of Northern Ireland in face of the recent outbreaks of violence to which they have been exposed. We pay tribute, in particular, to the courage and resource of the members of the Royal Ulster Constabularly...

Northern Ireland (Situation) (19 Dec 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: We have been in communication with the Republican Government, but I am afraid that I have no detailed statement that I can make. If the right hon. Gentleman would like to repeat the question tomorrow, I might have further information, which I should be glad to give.

Northern Ireland (Situation) (19 Dec 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: I think that my hon. Friend is absolutely correct when he says that the overwhelming feeling on both sides of the border is against outrages of this character. I have given a full account of the action taken up to date, and I can only tell him that the responsibility mentioned in the last sentence of my statement is one which, I think, any Government of this country would always feel ready to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Anglo-American Relations (18 Dec 1956)

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Anglo-American Relations (18 Dec 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: In reply to the first part of that question, I hope that the hon. and gallant Gentleman will not ask me to accept his somewhat involved preliminary conclusion. In reply to the second part, certainly so far as this country is concerned our position in respect of meetings and discussions is well known to the United States of America.

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Anglo-American Relations (18 Dec 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: I was really only trying to deal with the Question on the Order Paper, which was in reference to a meeting, and I think I have answered that clearly. I think that the conclusion I have put before the House is the correct one.

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: War Office (Secretary of State) (18 Dec 1956)

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Broadcasting (Suspension of 14-Day Rule) (18 Dec 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: Yes, Sir. I would first like to express the thanks of the whole House to my right hon. and learned Friend the Member for Chertsey (Sir L. Heald) and to the members of the Select Committee for the care and skill which they devoted to their task and for the valuable report they produced. In their report the Select Committee indicated that upholding the primacy of Parliament was the only...

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Broadcasting (Suspension of 14-Day Rule) (18 Dec 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: I think the phase was "about six months", but I certainly would not quarrel with the view of the House if that view is that it would be better to go to the end of the Session. That would be quite a reasonable arrangement.

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Broadcasting (Suspension of 14-Day Rule) (18 Dec 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: The right hon. and learned Gentleman has described himself as a sinner. At any rate he was in quite respectable company.

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Broadcasting (Suspension of 14-Day Rule) (18 Dec 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: The authorities concerned have gladly given their cooperation and agreement in this arrangement. That being so, it seems a sensible course that the House should give them this period of trial to see how it works out. I have some confidence that, like a good many things in this country, it will work out better in practice even though the theory of it may be difficult to describe in detail.

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: International Economic Conference (18 Dec 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: I do not consider that an international economic conference would be useful in present circumstances. The economic aspects of recent events are already under discussion in the Organisation for European Economic Co-operation, the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and the International Monetary Fund and other international bodies. Her Majesty's Government are also in constant touch with other...

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: International Economic Conference (18 Dec 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: I understand that Dr. Touch, who has been conducting the further inquiry, has submitted his report and that my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Air is hoping to make a comprehensive statement on this accident before the House rises. As regards the last part of the Question, I am discussing this suggestion with my right hon. Friends but, as the hon. Gentleman will recognise, there...

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Accident, London Airport (Report) (18 Dec 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: I agree that there is anxiety and that the procedures take some time. With the hon. Gentleman's knowledge of these things, I think he will understand the reason for that. My right hon. Friend is to make a statement, probably on Thursday, and go into this matter in full detail. I ask the hon. Gentleman to wait for that statement.

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Accident, London Airport (Report) (18 Dec 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: I do not know that is so, and I understand the reasons for that anxiety. When my right hon. Friend makes his report, which will be before the House rises—I have already discussed the terms of it with him—I think the hon. Gentleman will understand the reasons for the delay.
