Orders of the Day — Foreign Affairs and Defence ( 6 Nov 1952)

Mr Christopher Hollis: I was not using the word "cross" in the sense of anger but as across the Gangway.

Orders of the Day — Foreign Affairs and Defence ( 6 Nov 1952)

Mr Christopher Hollis: I do not want to waste the time of the House on such a silly point. The last time I had the pleasure of intervening in a foreign affairs debate, the hon. Member for Nelson and Colne (Mr. S. Silverman) followed me. Today I follow him. I had not intended to speak on the subject of Korea, but I shall make three points upon his speech. First, I agree with his distinction between the two...

Orders of the Day — Foreign Affairs and Defence ( 6 Nov 1952)

Mr Christopher Hollis: My time is valuable.

Orders of the Day — Foreign Affairs and Defence ( 6 Nov 1952)

Mr Christopher Hollis: I am glad of my success, denied to the right hon. Member for Derby, South, in elucidating an explanation from the hon. Member. As to his further point about the recognition of China by the United Nations, I am of the same mind as the right hon. Gentleman, because my own purely personal point of view is that it would be reasonable, if the United States Government could be persuaded of it,...

Orders of the Day — Umseums and Art Galleries (Closing) (14 Jul 1952)

Mr Christopher Hollis: I had hardly expected to be called quite so early in this debate, since my contribution was intended to be a matter of some detailed questions rather than the general survey which might have been expected from an hon. Member speaking first from these benches. I am glad the Opposition have taken the opportunity to raise this important subject this afternoon, and I am glad that we are having...

Orders of the Day — Umseums and Art Galleries (Closing) (14 Jul 1952)

Mr Christopher Hollis: Is the hon. Member on my side or against me?

Orders of the Day — Umseums and Art Galleries (Closing) (14 Jul 1952)

Mr Christopher Hollis: The smaller the charge, the stronger the argument. The hon. Member, I am delighted to find, is on my side. My hon. Friend raised that point and the Financial Secretary replied to it in the debate on 25th June. He said that there were legal difficulties and, on the question of imposing charges, he added: Whether that is desirable or not, it would involve legislation in the case of some of the...

Orders of the Day — Umseums and Art Galleries (Closing) (14 Jul 1952)

Mr Christopher Hollis: The right hon. Gentleman would oppose it, would he?

Orders of the Day — Umseums and Art Galleries (Closing) (14 Jul 1952)

Mr Christopher Hollis: In view of the right hon. Gentleman's opinion it is still more important that the Financial Secretary should tell us, in a great deal more detail than we have had, in respect of which museums legislation would be required and where it would not, because the most important of all these closures is the closure of the Public Record Office. If one looks up the Public Record Act, which was passed...

Orders of the Day — Umseums and Art Galleries (Closing) (14 Jul 1952)

Mr Christopher Hollis: I agree very much with the hon. Member. We could have certain free days and charges on Mondays and Thursdays and there could be student tickets. I would not object to that; I would agree with the hon. Member.

Orders of the Day — Umseums and Art Galleries (Closing) (14 Jul 1952)

Mr Christopher Hollis: Will the hon. and learned Member elaborate that a little? Why would it be a backward step? It would not keep anybody out of the museums.

Orders of the Day — Umseums and Art Galleries (Closing) (14 Jul 1952)

Mr Christopher Hollis: The hon. and learned Member cannot say on the one hand that there is this enormous public demand to get into the galleries, and on the other hand that if a charge of 2d. or 6d. is made they will be completely empty. I agree there is the particular case of people who could not afford that small fee. But nobody is suggesting that there shall not be free days when they can come.

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Marshall Aid (Refund) (10 Jul 1952)

Mr Christopher Hollis: asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer why Her Majesty's Government made a refund of $1,000,000 of Marshall Aid during the last quarter.

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Marshall Aid (Refund) (10 Jul 1952)

Mr Christopher Hollis: I am not quite certain that I fully understand even now. Why was the higher payment made in the previous quarter? Why was not the payment made at the right rate?

Licensing Laws (Tourist Trade) ( 4 Jul 1952)

Mr Christopher Hollis: In the Dining Room, the other day, did not the hon. Gentleman tell me that for medical reasons he had been forbidden to drink?

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Works: Anti-Slavery Memorial, Parliament Square ( 1 Jul 1952)

Mr Christopher Hollis: asked the Minister of Works whether he is now in a position to make a statement about the Anti-Slavery Memorial in Parliament Square.

Orders of the Day — Korean Campaign (Bombing Policy) (25 Jun 1952)

Mr Christopher Hollis: I hope the hon. Member for Orkney and Shetland (Mr. Grimond) will take it rather as a compliment if I do not follow him in detail, because I was largely in agreement with the argument he deployed though I shall have some passing references to make to one or two things he said. I wish to return to an earlier speech, that of the right hon. Member for Ebbw Vale (Mr. Bevan), who I am sorry to...

Orders of the Day — Korean Campaign (Bombing Policy) (25 Jun 1952)

Mr Christopher Hollis: Our time is limited, and if the hon. Gentleman can wait I was coming to that point. I can only talk about one point at a time. The right hon. Member for Ebbw Vale started by making this general remark about American policy. It is perfectly true, as the hon. Member for Dudley (Mr. Wigg) has said, that he came on to this subsequent quotation of the United Nations declaration in 1950 that it was...

Orders of the Day — Korean Campaign (Bombing Policy) (25 Jun 1952)

Mr Christopher Hollis: If I may add to the hon Gentleman's literary repertoire the names not only of Congreve but also of St. Thomas Aquinas, I would say that what is asserted without evidence can be denied without evidence. He has raised an entirely different point which is quite irrelevant. I am extremely doubtful if these negotiations did break down on that point alone. We all know, without debating or...

Orders of the Day — Korean Campaign (Bombing Policy) (25 Jun 1952)

Mr Christopher Hollis: The hon. Gentleman puts in the word "because." What I said was that I hope to be told clearly by the Government what the position was, but to say that because I have no idea therefore we should go on fighting, is an entire travesty of my argument.
