Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: United States Forces, United Kingdom (18 Dec 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: On the whole, I think my answer was comprehensive and correct. It was just "Yes".

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Heads of Governments (Communications) (18 Dec 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: I have nothing to add to the reply given on my behalf by my right hon. Friend the Lord Privy Seal on 13th December.

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Heads of Governments (Communications) (18 Dec 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: It has never been the practice to give any information about communications between Heads of Governments. I am certainly not going to start breaking that practice now.

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Heads of Governments (Communications) (18 Dec 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: What has been stated by the President of the United States—I speak from recollection—and Mr. Dulles and by other people in this country, was that the use of force could not be excluded. That, I think, was stated in one form or another several times.

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Heads of Governments (Communications) (18 Dec 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: I am certainly not going to lay as a White Paper any documents exchanged between Heads of Government. That has never been done and would make all such discussion in future utterly impossible. To put our position fairly, I think the right hon. Member for Ebbw Vale (Mr. Bevan) should be good enough to look at what I said in this House on 30th October. I dealt then very fully indeed with the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Egypt (Military Operations) (17 Dec 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: No provision has been made for the publication of any official military histories of events subsequent to the second world war, and I see no reason for making any.

Oral Answers to Questions — Egypt (Military Operations) (17 Dec 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: I am obliged to the hon. Gentleman. If I were trying to fulfil this hypothetical exercise which he has set before us, for my part I should prefer my right hon. Friend the Member for Woodford (Sir W. Churchill).

Oral Answers to Questions — Egypt (Military Operations) (17 Dec 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: This is a Question about the history of the armed conflict with Egypt. Certainly the documents are there, and will remain there. Anybody who wishes to dive into them, in due course, can dive into them.

Oral Answers to Questions — Middle East (Broadcasts) (15 Nov 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: These matters are regulated by arrangements agreed between the major parties and the B.B.C., in which there is provision for Ministers to make broadcasts in the discharge of their official responsibilities and for the Opposition to claim a right of reply in certain instances. In other types of sound and television broadcasts the Opposition have broadly the same opportunities as the Government...

Oral Answers to Questions — Middle East (Broadcasts) (15 Nov 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: The broadcasting arrangements were, I understand, agreed upon among the B.B.C., the late Labour Government and ourselves when we were the Opposition, as long ago as 1946–47. and they have been continued from year to year since. I do not think there is anything particularly new to say about that.

Oral Answers to Questions — Middle East (Broadcasts) (15 Nov 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: These are complicated matters which have been discussed for some time. I think the position is, broadly, that where the Opposition think that a Government broadcast is controversial, it is open to them to take the matter up through the usual channels with a view to replying. I have no complaint about it, but I hope I shall not be considered controversial if I say that the speech of the Leader...

Oral Answers to Questions — Middle East (Broadcasts) (15 Nov 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: I do not think that is quite fair. I do not think the right hon. Gentleman would say that when we were the Opposition we claimed that every time there was a Ministerial broadcast the Opposition should have the right to reply. [Interruption.] Certainly not. There is the opportunity for claiming a reply if there is agreement between us that there should be a reply—sometimes there is...

Oral Answers to Questions — Middle East (Broadcasts) (15 Nov 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: I have not suggested that. I think the complaint last night—I have read the debate—was of a very different character from what is now being debated.

Oral Answers to Questions — Members' Salaries (15 Nov 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: I explained the Government's attitude on 12th July in the debate on Members' salaries. I regret that I have at present nothing to add.

Oral Answers to Questions — Members' Salaries (15 Nov 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: Perhaps I might intervene for just a moment. I do understand that this is a very serious problem. I am very sorry that it is not possible today for me to say more than I have said.

Oral Answers to Questions — Hydrogen Bomb Tests (15 Nov 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: I have nothing to add to the reply given by my right hon. and learned Friend the Foreign Secretary on 24th October to the right hon. and learned Gentleman the Member for Rowley Regis and Tipton (Mr. A. Henderson).

Oral Answers to Questions — Hydrogen Bomb Tests (15 Nov 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: I do not quarrel with the hon. Gentleman's version of the facts at all. We have been at work on this matter, but I think he will agree that we have to choose the time when such an initiative is likely to have a result. In the present international atmosphere, I rather doubt, and I think he will, on reflection, whether we should get very far with the proposal.

Oral Answers to Questions — Hydrogen Bomb Tests (15 Nov 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: I would not like to say when other countries will be ready, and I would not like to say whether the right hon. Gentleman's timetable is right or wrong. In regard to one country giving the other the bomb and avoiding tests, I truly say that the more interchange there is among the N.A.T.O. Powers the less burden there will be on the N.A.T.O. Powers and the less danger to humanity of the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Hydrogen Bomb Tests (15 Nov 1956)

Mr Anthony Eden: I do not dispute what the right hon. Gentleman says. I do not know about the timetable and how long it will be. That is why we should make a start as soon as we can on the limitation of tests. We have done some work on the kind of proposals there should be. It is just a question of when to time them so as to get a result, and that is difficult to decide.
