Bankside Power Station Scheme (23 May 1947)

Dr Santo Jeger: I understand that the Minister has definitely stated that he has received advice from his experts that the arrangements for filtering and washing the gas and fumes will eliminate the smell—[HON. MEMBERS: "May."] The Minister has not said "may"; he has said "will." In a speech in another place recently the Lord Chancellor gave the same opinion.

Bankside Power Station Scheme (23 May 1947)

Dr Santo Jeger: I have read the speech very carefully, and I am prepared to accept the views which he gave rather than the views of my interrupters. Then there is the question of oil versus coal. I agree that oil is to be used and that it is a more expensive fuel than coal, but there is one thing to be said for it. It will not drain our coal supplies, neither will it drain the lifeblood of our miners. We...

Bankside Power Station Scheme (23 May 1947)

Dr Santo Jeger: That is a matter of opinion with which some of us cannot agree. Art is a matter of opinion. It depends on when one happens to be born, it depends upon historical and geographical factors and, almost entirely, upon the sort of influences to which one has been subjected. One's opinions on art are determined by one's environment. The last word has not been said either on the artistic or on the...

Bankside Power Station Scheme (23 May 1947)

Dr Santo Jeger: No one denies it, but I dare say that the right hon. Gentleman the Member for Woodford (Mr. Churchill), who has recently achieved eminence in a new sphere of activity, would, in discussing this and cognate matters, point out that the beauty of the picture that one sees from some point of vantage in London, would depend upon the kind of contrast one got and upon the balance of the various...

Bankside Power Station Scheme (23 May 1947)

Dr Santo Jeger: I have nearly finished. Even as people approach this spot they will love to look first at one side and then at the other. St. Paul's achieves a great deal of its artistic eminence by a certain amount of deceit. On all sides when one looks at St. Paul's one gets an impression of two complete storeys. As everybody knows, there are not two complete storeys. There are rows of windows which are...

Bankside Power Station Scheme (23 May 1947)

Orders of the Day — Penicillin (Control) (25 Feb 1947)

Dr Santo Jeger: Whenever a new drug is discovered and achieves a fair proportion of cures, the public at once gets the idea that it is a cure-all, and one is faced immediately with a demand from the public for an indiscriminate supply of it for all sorts of purposes for which it is no use whatever. That is one of the reasons why the supply of penicillin should be controlled. It is true that the main method...

Orders of the Day — Penicillin (Control) (25 Feb 1947)

Dr Santo Jeger: I was under the impression that the sole purpose of those who initiated this discussion was to argue that penicillin should be used without medical supervision. When a doctor issues a prescription, he does not just order a supply of the drug. The prescription consists of two parts, the first being a recipe for the drug, and the second, the method of application of the drug. There are...

Orders of the Day — Atomic Energy Bill ( 8 Oct 1946)

Dr Santo Jeger: We have heard a great deal in the past, and in the very recent past, from hon. Members of the Opposition about the Government policy of nationalisation, but we have not heard any attack upon this Bill, which is a Bill for the national control of atomic energy. It is a Bill which enforces nationalisation and it is consistent with the policy of the Government. If we are very optimistic about...

Oral Answers to Questions — Government Typing Staffs (Increase of Pay) (19 Mar 1946)

Member for Daventry (Mr. Manningham-Buller) on 1st December last; and whether he will see that in future the impartial standard of these accounts of Parliamentary proceedings is maintained.

West African Cocoa Industry (30 Nov 1945)

Dr Santo Jeger: I am sorry that it is impossible for me in the time at my disposal to attempt to make the case I had hoped to make, but I plunge straight into it by saying that I consider the apparent prosperity of the cocoa industry is based upon the misery and exploitation of a great mass of workers at the bottom. They live in very poor houses, they live under slum conditions, they are very overcrowded,...

West African Cocoa Industry (30 Nov 1945)

Dr Santo Jeger: I am informed that one of the members of this delegation is an actual farmer, that he has a farm in Nigeria, and that his family are at the present time engaged in working it.

Foreign Policy (President Truman's Declaration) ( 7 Nov 1945)

Dr Santo Jeger: Mr. Deputy-Speaker, I am very grateful to you, after what seems like a 40 years' wait on these benches, for allowing me to enter the promised land of a maiden speech. Had I been as diffident in my constituency as I feel now I do not suppose I should have been here to make this speech. I could not help admiring the way in which the right hon. Gentleman the Member for Woodford (Mr. Churchill)...
