BBC External Services (26 Jul 1979)

Mr Tim Rathbone: ...set up what was then the Empire service, he was condemned by the then Government and threatened with the possibility that he would have to raise the money for that service through the BBC licence. Mussolini and Hitler proved Lord Reith to be right and the then Government wrong. Do we have to face a position when some foreign Power will prove our Government wrong?

South Africa ( 8 Dec 1978)

Dr Alan Glyn: ...also of a great deal in the commercial field. As for the effect of sanctions, my hon. and learned Friend the Member for Solihull (Mr. Grieve) put his finger on the answer. Did sanctions prevent Mussolini from continuing his aggression in Abyssinia? Have sanctions against Rhodesia proved effective? In each case, no. Therefore, what is the point? Now that we have learned from history that...

Rhodesia ( 7 Nov 1978)

Mr Edward Du Cann: .... How right they were! We did not realise it at the time, but, my word, how right they were! Sanctions have been ineffective against Rhodesia for 13 years, just as they were ineffective against Mussolini in the years before the war. But it will not be like that in the case of South Africa in 1980, perhaps. That is a matter upon which the House should ponder. When oil supplies continued...

Orders of the Day — Unemployment (24 Jul 1978)

Mr Eddie Loyden: ...that we must have a planned society. Socialists must make clear what they mean by that term. That is necessary because societies have been planned in the past. The corporate State was planned by Mussolini. We are not talking about that sort of society; we are talking about a Socialist planned society. By no stretch of the imagination can we achieve the society that my colleagues and I...

Income Tax (Personal Allowances) (10 Nov 1977)

Mr Tom Litterick: ...before. The only conclusion that one can arrive at is that the strategy which both contributors to the debate were implicitly advocating for the working class is precisely that advocated by Benito Mussolini and Adolf Hitler. They did exactly that. It is well known now that Hitler and his economics Minister, Dr. Schacht, were Keynesians before Keynes. They were doing it while Keynes was...

Orders of the Day — Defence (28 Mar 1977)

Mr Julian Amery: ...a great deal of truth in that. We tend to give people the benefit of the doubt and we watch for the local problems and the local difficulties. I have seen this happen when Abyssinia was attacked by Mussolini. It was strongly argued then that it was quite wrong to interfere because there was slavery in Abyssinia. When Austria was invaded many people said that half the people wanted to be...

Earl of Avon (17 Jan 1977)

Mr James Callaghan: a voice speaking out for truth, decency and honour. He was young, he spoke up clearly, he stood for the principles of the League of Nations and the covenant, and he opposed the growing menace of Mussolini and Hitler. All these things commended him to a great body of men and women in this country, much wider than his own party. He was always a faithful member of the Conservative Party...

Orders of the Day — Scotland and Wales Bill (15 Dec 1976)

Mr John Mendelson: ...Members get nervous and start arguing when this is pointed out. No wonder, because a number of them used to be members of the Labour Party. This is not untypical of members of chauvinist parties. Mussolini used to be a Socialist, so we are accustomed to this kind of transformation. The benefits to the people of Scotland of having national solidarity with the United Kingdom are real....

Orders of the Day — Scotland and Wales Bill (13 Dec 1976)

Mr Anthony Kershaw: ...that a country with so little tradition of parliamentary democracy and so short of practice of it should over the past 30 years have had peaceful and democratic government. Let us not forget that Mussolini came to power on a system of first past the post. Nevertheless, if the voting system produces a balance of force and opinion, why should that not impose upon the Government of the day...

Aircraft and Shipbuilding Industries Bill (Procedure) ( 1 Dec 1976)

Mr Norman Tebbit: So did Mussolini.

Pay and Prices Policy ( 6 Jul 1976)

Peter Tapsell: ...commas—tend to be bandied about too easily just as people throw the words "Fascist" and "Communist" about too freely. Few of us really believe that this country is in danger of becoming a Mussolini-type corporate State. I agreed with some remarks by my right hon. Friend the Member for Sidcup (Mr. Heath) the other day when he said that the words "corporate State" were bandied about too...

BAIL BILL [Lords] (26 May 1976)

Mr Robert Kilroy-Silk: ...order for the hon. Member for Bury St. Edmunds (Mr. Griffiths), who has just stormed from the Chamber, to refer from behind the Bar to this Chamber as a "Reichstag" and to the Minister of State as "Mussolini"?

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (12 Apr 1976)

Mr Maurice Macmillan: ...sense. The Leader of the House spoke of The Times leaders in 1927 and castigated their approval of the corporate State in its then manifestation in Italy. I am tempted to remind him that Mussolini was once a Socialist journalist. The great weakness of this corporate system, and going for order rather than market, is that it does nothing to create new capital. It results in a larger and...

Orders of the Day — Trade Union and Labour Relations (Amendment) Bill ( 9 Dec 1975)

Mr John Pardoe: ...the Bill. I ask the right hon. Gentleman what he thinks Cassius would have said about that. I do not mean the lean and hungry Roman: I mean the Cassius, the M. M. Foot, who wrote the "Trial of Mussolini". I wonder what he would have thought in his youth of that statement and this Bill? The right hon. Gentleman has said that the Industrial Relations Act was a piece of corporate Statism. I...

Orders of the Day — Industry Bill (18 Feb 1975)

Mr Winston Churchill: keep him occupied—this pampered progeny of the peerage who seeks to play-act as the leader of the workers' revolution. The NEB will be organised, as the Government admit, on the lines of Mussolini's IRI and Franco's INI, which was a similar institution. It is strange that the Labour Party should be so keen on embracing the doctrines and the remedies of Fascism, but that is what it...

Orders of the Day — Industry Bill (17 Feb 1975)

Mr Tony Benn: ...without any accountability whatsoever to the House of Commons. I have heard the Bill described as a charter for workers' control. Both things cannot be true. It cannot be true that this is a Mussolini nightmare and a Trotskyite nightmare at one and the same time. We are seeking to get the relationship between Government, management and workers into a better balance. Another criticism is...

Orders of the Day — Capital Punishment (11 Dec 1974)

Mr Geoffrey De Freitas: ignored. It is only recently in our long European history that we have had to consider the power of the State not only over its enemies but over its own citizens. It is no accident that during Mussolini's rule in Italy capital punishment was reintroduced, not, as the Minister of Justice of the Fascist Government said, because there was any statistical evidence to justify it, but...

National Referenda (22 Nov 1974)

Mr Douglas Jay: ...their currency upwards. If the hon. Gentleman says that that is all due to oil, he must explain why it has not had the same effect in this country. The hon. Gentleman also spoke about Hitler and Mussolini and their use of referenda. That is debasing the level of the argument. No doubt Hitler and Mussolini used telephones and toothbrushes, but that is no reason why we should abjure the use...

Orders of the Day — Industry ( 4 Nov 1974)

Mr Michael Heseltine: ...and industrial relations problems have emerged as a pattern of encouragement to the rest of Europe. But a fact that has remained lost in the obscurity of history is that the economic adviser to Mussolini at the time IRI was created was no less a personage than Signor Benni. But the second negation of the Prime Minister's principle of the clear divide is the concept of the planning agreement.

Oral Answers to Questions — Industry: Post Office (Investment) ( 1 Jul 1974)

Mr John Peyton: ...for the difficult task of running industry? Will he pay attention to such people? Does he realise that unless he does so he is in danger of going down in history as a kind of music-hall comedy Mussolini?
