Orders of the Day — Scotland (Housing) (11 May 1950)

Major Guy Lloyd: Knowing and sharing your political prejudices, Sir, I would not for a moment call them in question, neither did I do so.

Why did he...

Business of the House ( 9 Mar 1950)

Major Guy Lloyd: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that, whether the National committee is available or not, it is in fact never consulted, and that this organisation the Educational Foundation is a law unto itself?
