Orders of the Day — King's Speech: Debate on the Address (8 Nov 1951)

Mr Geoffrey Lloyd: ...demand for ships and, therefore, on the freight market. Also to ease the burden on shipping generally the United States are continuing to put into service more ships from their so-called "moth ball fleet." If I may sum up on the question of imports, I would say that we shall do everything we can to get the coal, but I should be misleading the House if I left the impression that we are...

Orders of the Day — North Atlantic Defence (12 Mar 1951)

Lieut-Commander Peter Smithers: ...by my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Pollok (Commander (Galbraith). My hon. and gallant Friend spoke for some considerable time about the potential strength of the Soviet Submarine fleet, and he reduced his argument to this question: he asked the Admiralty whether they considered they had sufficient forces to meet 25 modern ocean-going submarines. To that we have not had any reply,...

Orders of the Day — Transport (Amendment) Bill (23 Feb 1951)

Mr Peter Thorneycroft: .... In the last three years the British Transport Commission have seen an accumulated loss of £40 million going down the drain; and that is the equivalent of two-thirds of the value of their road fleet, together with the goodwill. Let us be quite clear who is putting these things in this unattractive locality. The Government say that this monopoly has been bought and paid for. Let us...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill (16 May 1950)

Mr Peter Crowder: ...and most expensive year of the war. In those days, we did have something to show for it. We could put 1,000 bombers over Germany by night, a million men into the field, and the whole of the British Fleet was mobilised. We knew where the money was going in those days. Goodness knows where it goes today. These minor tax changes are rather like the little game of Box and Cox. Do not they...

Orders of the Day — Road Haulage (1 May 1950)

Mr Peter Thorneycroft: ...—one would have thought that they might at least have been left to get on with that little bit of their business; but if any private road haulier applies for extensions to his licence or his fleet within the 25-mile limit, who opposes him? He is opposed not so much by his fellow hauliers as by the Road Haulage Executive themselves, composed of concerns with long-distance haulage. They...

Orders of the Day — Air Estimates, 1950–51 — REPORT [21st March]: Vote a. Number for Air Force Service (27 Mar 1950)

Mr George Ward: ...with a sad shake of the head and an expression of hope that it would eventually become all right. He also told us of certain improvised expedients, which I described in my speech as "robbing Peter to pay Paul." The truth is that it is no earthly good waiting for something to turn up. These very vital problems can only be solved by taking definite and decisive steps, first to attract into...

Orders of the Day — Princess Elizabeth's and Duke of Edinburgh's Annuities Bill: Capital Investment (White Paper) (18 Dec 1947)

Mr Peter Roberts: ...without tyres is not very much good. He mentioned scrap iron. That is something in which Sheffield is particularly interested. There is a great shortage of scrap. Why, when part of the Italian fleet was allocated for scrap, were ships and submarines recently given back? I know that an answer was given that our break-up shipyards are full. That is only a temporary phase which could be got...

Orders of the Day — Fishing Industry (21 Mar 1946)

Mr Robert Boothby: ...the Government should give the greatest possible priority, in this time of food stringency, to the distribution of fish. I am told that during the last fortnight there have been delays at Aberdeen, Fleetwood, Shields and Lowestoft, with trains running over 18 hours behind schedule. I know the difficulties, but I still feel that the utmost priority must be given to transport for the...

Bill Presented: Foreign Affairs (20 Feb 1946)

Mr Morgan Price: ...Russia have been extremely difficult and on the verge even of war. A British Secretary of State once wrote to a British Admiral in the Baltic a despatch which contained this passage: The Russian Fleet will disturb the world, while it is stirred by ambition and revenge. He added that in certain circumstances he was to engage and sink the Russian Fleet. That was in 1719 when Peter the...

Orders of the Day — Royal Navy (Post-War Responsibilities) (7 Mar 1945)

Commander Sir Peter Agnew: ...and languages even at the expense, temporarily, of some of the mathematics that they study there. There will be resulting benefit to the boys, because I think that the senior officers of the Fleet will agree with my right hon. Friend that the public school entry officers are able to acquire all the necessary technical and mathematical knowledge after they have been taken into the Navy....

Orders of the Day — Foreign Affairs (24 May 1944)

Mr Winston Churchill: ...were lying under the guns both of the shore batteries and of our superior naval forces which had rapidly gathered. This tension lasted for nearly three weeks. In due course the mutinies in the Fleet were suppressed. The disorderly ships were boarded by Greeks, under the orders of the Greek Government, and, with about 50 killed and wounded, the mutineers were collected and sent ashore. The...

War and Internationa Situation (22 Feb 1944)

Mr Winston Churchill: ..., quantitative and also, we believe, qualitative, over the enemy. We have also, of course, the complete command of the seas where an American squadron is actively working with the British Fleet. Such being the position, many people wondered Why it was not possible to make a large amphibious turning movement, either on the Eastern or Western side of Italy, to facilitate the forward advance...

Orders of the Day — Women's Royal Naval Service (10 Mar 1943)

Commander Sir Peter Agnew: I do not know whether my hon. and gallant Friend has spent his time during this war in travelling around the Fleet; but I have been in the Fleet, or in some form of it, during the past three years, and I have never heard these views expressed by officers or men in the Fleet.

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Sir Archibald Sinclair's Statement. (4 Mar 1942)

Captain Sir Peter Macdonald: ...flight was in co-operation with the Navy. All the time I was in Fighter Command there was close and intimate co-operation with the Navy, and very good feeling. In fact, my own squadron trained some Fleet Air Arm pilots and was sorry indeed when they were called back to their own Service. As regards the Army, I confess that I have a good deal of sympathy with the excellent speech made by...

Orders of the Day — Emergency Powers (Defence) Acts, 1939 and 1940. (1 Apr 1941)

Sir A.P. Herbert: ...programme, at the time when in Victorian days the children were massing about their mothers' knees, there was a performance, with elaborate music and dialogue, of the degrading stage play called "Peter Pan." It lasted one and a quarter hours. At 9.25 there was a play by the alien writer Euripides. The position was far more serious on the Forces programme, where there were at least five...

War Situation. (20 Aug 1940)

Mr Winston Churchill: ...panic-stricken British crouched in their holes cursing the plutocratic Parliament which has led them to such a plight; if after all this his whole air onslaught were forced after a while tamely to peter out, the Führer's reputation for veracity of statement might be seriously impugned. We may be sure, therefore, that he will continue as long as he has the strength to do so, and as long...

Orders of the Day — Wheat (Amendment) Bill.: Clause 1. — (Variation of standard price of home-grown millable wheat.) (6 Jun 1939)

Clarke, Colonel R. S. (E....

Oral Answers to Questions — Public Health.: Registration of Births and Deaths, Lindsey. (30 Jun 1938)

Mr. Haslam: asked the Minister of Health whether he has considered the protest from the Spilsby Rural District Council, the Wainfleet Parish Councils, and any other neighbouring parish councils against the new registration scheme put forward by the Lindsey County Council under the Local Government Act, 1929; whether he is aware that there is a strong feeling in the parishes of Wainfleet All...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Navy Supplementary Estimate, 1937. (22 Mar 1938)

...cannot be disputed—a naval officer is being most unjustly treated in comparison with officers in the other Services. What justification is there for a cut of 2s. in naval officers' pay, robbing Peter to pay Paul—robbing Paul too to pay himself? What a mean scheme. What justification is there for laying down that an officer on half-pay shall receive no marriage allowance? At the one...
