Ballot for Notices of Motions: Further Education (Priorities) (18 Jun 1952)

Mr Christopher Hollis: I beg to give notice that on Friday, 4th July, I shall call attention to the importance of priorities in further education, and move a Resolution.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: New Clause. — (Relief to Certain Persons Where Copyright Assigned for Lump Sum or Lump Sums.) (17 Jun 1952)

Mr Christopher Hollis: I have a double interest to declare: that of an author and a publisher. In my capacity as an author I want authors to get as much money as possible; in my capacity as a publisher I want them to get as little money as possible. I approach this impartially, but I join with other speakers in hoping that the Chancellor of the Exchequer will either be able to accept this Clause or something to the...

Oral Answers to Questions — South Korea (Political Developments) (11 Jun 1952)

Mr Christopher Hollis: Could the Foreign Secretary make it clear whose is the responsibility for the action against Communist guerrillas in South Korea? The Under-Secretary was good enough to say to me yesterday that the responsibility was transferred in April from the military to the civil authorities and that now suitable action is being taken. But by whom is the suitable action being taken? Is it by us or by the...

Orders of the Day — Town Development Bill: Clause 2. — (Exchequer Contributions to Council of Receiving District.) (10 Jun 1952)

Mr Christopher Hollis: I think it might save time if I reminded hon. Members that the argument of such hon. Members as the Member for Clap-ham (Mr. Gibson), about defining the phrase "over-population" or defining what is meant by "a big centre of population," would be very pertinent, as was said over and over again in Committee, if the Clause were putting upon the Minister an obligation to give assistance to these...

Korea (Military Situation) (28 May 1952)

Mr Christopher Hollis: Can the Prime Minister tell the House anything about Communist guerrilla activities in South Korea?

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Relaxation of Customs Agreement (Dilutees) (22 May 1952)

Mr Christopher Hollis: Further to that point of order. I would point out, Sir, that the Question in no way contains an implication that the Agreement has been repudiated.

Clause 22. — (Tied Premises.) (19 May 1952)

Mr Christopher Hollis: May I clear up one doubt I have in my mind? The hon. and learned Member for Horn-church (Mr. Bing) commented on the conclusion of some of his hon. Friends that the brewers are the principal subscribers to Conservative Party funds, while many of his hon. Friends have already on the Order Paper a Motion objecting to the Government's transport proposals on the grounds that the road hauliers are...

Clause 22. — (Tied Premises.) (19 May 1952)

Mr Christopher Hollis: The hon. and learned Member is not at all confused. He made a definite statement that the brewers were the principal subscribers. If, as he says, the accounts were not published, how he knows that I do not know.

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Defence: Retired Officers (Pensions) (14 May 1952)

Mr Christopher Hollis: asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Defence whether, in the review of war pensions, he will consider the case of officers of the 1914 War whose pensions have not been revised in conformity with the increased cost of living.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 2. — (Classification of Entertainments for Purposes of Entertainments Duty, and Rates of Duty.) ( 6 May 1952)

Mr Christopher Hollis: I join with other hon. Members in asking my right hon. Friend whether he can possibly look at this matter again. The particular Amendment to which my name and that of some of my hon. Friends is attached, in page 2, line 45, at the end, to insert— (j) a cricket match. —is concerned solely with cricket. I appreciate, however, that we are discussing a wider Amendment, and for my own part I...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 2. — (Classification of Entertainments for Purposes of Entertainments Duty, and Rates of Duty.) ( 6 May 1952)

Mr Christopher Hollis: I would love to come to Huddersfield with the hon. Member, but there is enough speedway in my own constituency to make it unnecessary for me to come. My point was with regard to the integral part of our educational life. I have nothing against speedway, I was merely trying to make a formula.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 2. — (Classification of Entertainments for Purposes of Entertainments Duty, and Rates of Duty.) ( 6 May 1952)

Mr Christopher Hollis: Not exactly educational, but in point of fact play a part in education, which is a very different thing.

Orders of the Day — Agricultural Land, Wiltshire (Use) ( 1 May 1952)

Mr Christopher Hollis: I wish to take the opportunity to raise a particular instance of a general problem which, to some extent, is found in every part of the world. We are all aware now, I think, of the great fact that when the first industrial expansion took place people were allowed to build factories or build homes almost regardless of their position, and it was thought right enough that agriculture should be...

Orders of the Day — Agricultural Land, Wiltshire (Use) ( 1 May 1952)

Mr Christopher Hollis: But does not my hon. Friend appreciate that, since the introduction of live training, land, such as Imber, which could be used for cropping at the same time as it was used for training in the old days, cannot now be used for cropping?

Orders of the Day — Agricultural Land, Wiltshire (Use) ( 1 May 1952)

Mr Christopher Hollis: indicated assent.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 1. — (Hydrocarbon Oils, etc.) (30 Apr 1952)

Mr Christopher Hollis: I am glad to be following the hon. Member for Edmonton (Mr. Albu). I should like very much to go into this large question of the relative merits of direct and indirect taxation, and I might almost be tempted to stretch your patience, Sir Charles, to see how far I could go. If the hon. Member for Chesterfield (Mr. Benson) were in his place, it could be even more interesting, because I have...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 1. — (Hydrocarbon Oils, etc.) (30 Apr 1952)

Mr Christopher Hollis: I do not think we need delay the Committee on this point. I admit it affects every person but, between the two, the products of industry on the whole are bought more by the rich people than by the poor. The hon. Member does not dispute that, does he?

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 1. — (Hydrocarbon Oils, etc.) (30 Apr 1952)

Mr Christopher Hollis: But I do not think the hon. Member can say it is a tax which falls with special severity on the poor. We all admit it is a tax which everyone dislikes; in fact, everyone dislikes every tax. The point I want to explore is this. I represent a constituency which includes a large part of the suburbs of Swindon, and one of the most persistent arguments brought before me during the recent Election...
