Viscountess ASTOR: The right hon. Baronet said, "Can you imagine Signor Mussolini saying 'If the Italian Army fails?'" and he spoke of the Prime Minister saying, "If the League fails," but surely he cannot compare the Prime Minister with Mussolini.

Mr Samuel Silverman: Everybody knows that the working class in Italy is opposed to Mussolini and Fascism, and everybody, therefore, will appreciate that we are right in appealing to them.

These are the two bodies of people in Italy who...

Orders of the Day — Palestine (31 Jul 1946)

Sir Henry Legge-Bourke: ...things which he said. There is the matter of General Barker's letter. The hon.

Gentleman left out. Mussolini was committing an act of aggression, and these troops in Palestine were doing their level...

Orders of the Day — Queen's Speech: Rhodesia (12 Nov 1965)

Mr Philip Noel-Baker: The right hon. Gentleman cites the action over Ethiopia. I am deeply indebted to him for that example. We delayed for weeks, and then what did we do? We said we would not receive Mussolini's exports. We imposed one or two other trifling restrictions which many of us thought would be wholly and utterly ineffective, as we said at the time from those benches. In fact, they were a grave...

Rail Performance (20 Mar 2002)

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister and Signor Mussolini (Correspondence). ( 3 Nov 1937)

Mr Neville Chamberlain: No, Sir. This correspondence was personal, but I have no objection to telling the House the purport of it. At the end of July last the Italian Ambassador brought me a message from Signor Mussolini of a friendly character. I took advantage of the opportunity to send Signor Mussolini a personal letter expressing my regret that relations between Great Britain and Italy were still far from that...

Orders of the Day — Foreign Policy. (19 Dec 1938)

Mr Reginald Sorensen: ...we advocate. Therefore whilst I wish the Prime Minister God speed when he goes to Rome, yet I do so only with the hope that he will not go with the idea of merely playing a devil's card game with Mussolini. I hope he will go with a big enough proposal and say to Signor Mussolini: "This is a dirty game we are all playing, and it can only end in the collapse of all Europe." I say he should...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Italy ( 4 May 1994)

David Winnick: ...since the liberation of Italy from fascism, is it not a matter for concern that some of the people involved in the new Government have highly praised the notorious war criminal and mass murderer, Mussolini, and that the Speaker of the Italian Parliament has made similar remarks? Is it too much to ask the Conservative Government here to make it absolutely clear that we consider Mussolini a...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Foreign Office. (18 May 1931)

Mr Alexander Haycock: I am very glad that the hon. and gallant Member mentioned M. Mussolini, because he has already visited this country. There was no objection to that visit. M. Mussolini was received with great honour. But there is a marvellous difference in the attitude of hon. Members opposite when it is a question of dictatorship in Italy and when it is a question of dictatorship in Russia. The only...

Bill Presented: Consideration of Lords Amendments and further messages from the Lord ( 7 Feb 2001)

John Hayes: The comparison with Mussolini does not, in fact, bear much scrutiny: Mussolini made the trains run on time, whereas the Government have done precisely the opposite. Leaving that aside, however, may I suggest that it is organisations of that type—independent outside bodies—that look to the Report stage of a Bill for the raising and debating of their considered views by Members? That is not...

This suggestion represented an effort to reach an agreed settlement of a...
