We must be careful not to run down equipment...

Newspaper Industry Dispute (B.B.C. News Bulletins) (2 May 1955)

Mr James Ede: ...hon. Member for Twickenham indicate the dangers that might have been brought upon the B.B.C. It is not so much the odds after the race about which people are concerned as with what "Templegate," "Ajax" or "Uno" tell them before the race is run. Occasionally, at Epsom, I have seen Officers of the House studying the back page of the noon edition of the "Evening Standard."

Mr James Thomas: ...a most ominous reference to one cruiser which has either been sold to a foreign Power or is about to be sold. May I ask the Civil Lord a very direct question as to whether that cruiser is H.M.S. "Ajax"? The Parliamentary Secretary promised us an answer at the end of July. It is high time we had one, and I hope we shall get it from the Civil Lord tonight. I must in fairness say, having...

For some reason or other the Government have stalled us off every time. Why should we not be told whether...

Mr David Gammans: of the middle classes by 20 per cent., and that is admitted in the White Paper. We are selling our assets abroad, ranging from the sale of Argentine railways to the threat of selling H.M.S. "Ajax" to the Chileans. But we can only pawn the furniture once. Father Christmas can do quite well for a time if he is in alliance with Bill Sykes. The trouble is that he cannot keep it up....
