Town Development Inquiries (Costs) (20 Nov 1953)

Mr Christopher Hollis: Yes, but with regard to the awarding of costs in this case. I do not know if it would be easy to prove that the local authority had been perverse or vexatious. They have almost been advised by the Ministry in the matter.

European Affairs and Trieste (28 Oct 1953)

Mr Christopher Hollis: Hon. and right hon. Gentlemen opposite have taken the opportunity of this debate to inquire into the Government's handling of this situation and no one can take exception to that. The Foreign Secretary himself would be the last person to complain, and, in the same way, no hon. or right hon. Member opposite could fairly take exception if my right hon. Friend or any other of my hon. Friends on...

European Affairs and Trieste (28 Oct 1953)

Mr Christopher Hollis: I suggested quite a different thing. I did not suggest that we should persuade Italy to do anything by giving her Zone A. I was discussing what would be the consequence after the declaration of 8th October—a purely hypothetical situation—if that declaration were not implemented.

Council of Europe (23 Oct 1953)

Mr Christopher Hollis: The right hon. Gentleman says he did not get up to say what, in fact, he has said. This is most important. Is he then speaking simply for the moment or is he speaking for his party when he throws out these most important suggestions about association with the Schuman Plan?

Council of Europe (23 Oct 1953)

Oral Answers to Questions — International Bodies (Grants) (13 Jul 1953)

Mr Christopher Hollis: Whereas the Assembly of the Council of Europe met only twice last year and is due to meet four times this year, surely that accounts for the disparity in the figures?

Marshall Aid Commemoration Bill: Clause 2. — (the Marshall Aid Commemoratio Commission.) (10 Jul 1953)

Mr Christopher Hollis: I do not fear that it will be so, but I hope that my hon. Friend the Joint Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs will be under no temptation to accept the Amendment. I must intervene because the speech of the hon. Member for Fife, West (Mr. Hamilton) was the silliest that I have ever heard in this House. I have no responsibility for the precise phrase: persons of eminence in academic...

Oral Answers to Questions — Coronation: Rainfall (Research) (16 Jun 1953)

Mr Christopher Hollis: Even though it may seem that there is a good deal too much rain in London and Nottingham, there are other parts of the country, where there is not sufficient rain. If my hon. Friend has any to dispose of, will he put some of it on my garden?

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill (20 May 1953)

Mr Christopher Hollis: I do not propose to follow the right hon. Gentleman but to consider the Amendment solely from the point of view of revenue, which is, of course, with what we are concerned at the moment. I want to argue that if the Chancellor can see his way to make at any rate some concession in response to the appeal of my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Knutsford (Lieut.-Colonel Bromley-Davenport)...

Mr Christopher Hollis: asked the Minister of Agriculture the policy of Her Majesty's Government in regard to the supply of tuberculin-tested milk.

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture: Tuberculin-tested Milk (23 Apr 1953)

Mr Christopher Hollis: Is my right hon. Friend aware that when farmers go T.T. there are some health officers who take them off the list of distributors of milk to schools? Can anything be done about that? Is he further aware that if we approach the Ministry of Health about this we are referred to the Ministry of Education, and if we go to the Ministry of Education we are referred to the Ministry of Health, and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Roundway House, Devizes (16 Apr 1953)

Mr Christopher Hollis: Was not this a very odd purchase by the Ministry of Education in the time of the last Government, for which my right hon. Friend was in no way responsible—the purchase of Round-way House for a teachers' training college when apparently it was highly unsuitable for that purpose and could not be used?

Oral Answers to Questions — Russian-Born Wives of British Subjects (15 Apr 1953)

Mr Christopher Hollis: While appreciating the answer given by my right hon. and learned Friend, may I ask if he will promise to give the House information as soon as it is possible to do so? Simply because of the smallness of this problem from the point of view of the security policy of the Soviet Government, it is an acid test of their sincerity.
