Orders of the Day — Supply: REPORT [22nd July] (26 Jul 1954)

Mr Christopher Hollis: I do not know what the hon. Member means. I made certain points about public schools some time ago and my argument now is quite a different one, which has nothing to do with income.

Orders of the Day — Supply: REPORT [22nd July] (26 Jul 1954)

Mr Christopher Hollis: No, I said the opposite.

Orders of the Day — Supply: REPORT [22nd July] (26 Jul 1954)

Mr Christopher Hollis: I do not think I can follow what the hon. Member for Hammersmith, South (Mr. W. T. Williams) is saying about those people in Wales who rejoice in a grammar school education and that no one in England could get a similar education without going to a public school. I do not follow that at all. But so far as they do get a similar education, and so far as it be true that in Wales the people at...

Overseas Information Services ( 6 Jul 1954)

Mr Christopher Hollis: On a point of order. May I respectfully draw your attention to the fact, Mr. Speaker, that during the debate only one Member on the Conservative back benches has been called?

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture: Vibrio Foetus (24 Jun 1954)

Mr Christopher Hollis: Can the Minister give some indication when the results of the research will be published? Further, will it be possible to introduce some system of testing similar to tuberculin testing, to give encouragement to people in A.I. Centres?

Orders of the Day — LAW REFORM (LIMITATION OF ACTIONS, &c.) BILL: Clause 10. — (Legalisation of Ready Money Pool Betting Carried on by Post.) ( 7 May 1954)

Mr Christopher Hollis: I do not feel really that this Clause can stand in so far as anything has been said in this debate. My hon. Friend the Undersecretary of State for the Home Department did not really answer the point of conscience that I feel important from my own point of view. I have no strong feelings or objections to gambling or to the pool system, and I do not object to the hon. Member for Sheffield, Park...

Orders of the Day — LAW REFORM (LIMITATION OF ACTIONS, &c.) BILL: Clause 10. — (Legalisation of Ready Money Pool Betting Carried on by Post.) ( 7 May 1954)

Mr Christopher Hollis: Apparently the hon. Member has changed his opinion since 20th February, when he wrote an article in the "New Statesman" I am not complaining about his having changed his opinion, but I think we are entitled to know what new argument he has learned which made him think this Clause should be retained.

Orders of the Day — Schools (Size of Classes) (27 Apr 1954)

Mr Christopher Hollis: Whatever differences of opinion may emerge in the course of this debate, I am certain that we should all begin by congratulating the hon. Member for Southampton, Itchen (Mr. Morley) both on his good fortune in the Ballot and for having chosen to debate the subject which is now before the House. I also congratulate him on being able to enlist the aid of his hon. Friend the Member for...

Orders of the Day — Schools (Size of Classes) (27 Apr 1954)

Mr Christopher Hollis: Looking at it casually one would say that that is a point with Which one would have very great sympathy, but it really is not as easy as all that, as I think the hon. Gentleman knows. It is not simply a matter of the Government's taking one thing from another. We come to the numbers of teachers. It is true that to solve this problem of the overcrowded classes it is necessary not only to have...

Orders of the Day — Schools (Size of Classes) (27 Apr 1954)

Mr Christopher Hollis: I was going on to say that the National Union of Teachers did not welcome it. Did the hon. Gentleman say that Mr. Hardman did not make the suggestion at the National Union of Teachers' Conference?

Orders of the Day — Schools (Size of Classes) (27 Apr 1954)

Mr Christopher Hollis: If he did not, I apologise and withdraw my remark. I understood that he did. I was going on to say that the National Union of Teachers opposed the suggestion. I understand now that Mr. Hardman made the suggestion somewhere else. It was not widely welcomed in the teaching profession. There is the question of salaries. I hope the day will come when teachers' salaries can be further increased,...

Mr Christopher Hollis: asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether his attention has been called to the serious situation of the British Museum as disclosed in the current Report of the Standing Commission on Museums and Galleries; and whether he will make a statement.

Oral Answers to Questions — Museums and Galleries (Standing Commission's Report) ( 8 Apr 1954)

Mr Christopher Hollis: Is my right hon. Friend aware that the House is extremely grateful to him for his comprehensive answer? Is he further aware that it is not a mere matter of convenience but of national economy in the broad sense that there should be a place in this country where everyone can conveniently get access to any printed material? Will he not also agree that it is a danger to the national economy if,...

Prayers: Religious Persecution, Poland (18 Dec 1953)

Mr Christopher Hollis: The facts of this case have been so clearly stated by my hon. and learned Friend the Member for Ilford, North (Sir G. Hutchinson) and the hon. Member for Liverpool, Scotland (Mr. Logan) that it is certainly not necessary for me to detain the House for more than a minute or two. As hon. Members know, I happen to be a Roman Catholic, but we Catholics appreciate that the great majority of hon....

Cinematograph Film Production (Special Loans) Bill (10 Dec 1953)

Mr Christopher Hollis: I shall not keep the House for more than two minutes, but I would not think it right to let this Bill pass without repeating in three or four sentences my fundamental protest that, with all the will in the world, I cannot see that the policy either of the late Government or of this Government towards the film industry adds up to sense. There are two propositions, it seems to me, quite easily...

Orders of the Day — Cinematograph Film Production (Special Loans) Bill (20 Nov 1953)

Mr Christopher Hollis: I should be very grateful if my hon. Friend the Parliamentary Secretary could clear up two puzzles which are still in my very inexpert mind on this subject. The first is, was my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for the Colonies right or wrong? I am still inclined to think that he was right, and his argument seems to me to have been an unanswerable one. I believe that there are two...

Orders of the Day — Cinematograph Film Production (Special Loans) Bill (20 Nov 1953)

Mr Christopher Hollis: I certainly do, and I was coming to that point. I thank the hon. Gentleman for his intervention. The increased financial rewards make the situation much more difficult, and it is necessary to pursue a much more economic policy in the cinema industry. In the lush days, people were attracted by extravagant rewards, but now, as the hon. Gentleman said, we have to inject economy into the...
