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 — 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 — Finance Bill: Clause 13. — (Road Vehicles — Purchase Tax.) (15 Jun 1950)

Mr Peter Thorneycroft: replaced? We always hear about the big sales of second-hand Ministerial cars, but Ministers are not always anxious to answer questions about that. It is equally important that commercial fleets should have the same rate of priority as Ministerial cars. The arguments which the right hon. and learned Gentleman has adduced in these matters throw a remarkable searchlight upon what he is...

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

Mr Peter Thorneycroft: ...number of vehicles? Do I also understand him to say that within the 25-mile limit the Transport Commission should produce all the facts and figures about its plans and about the additions to its fleets?

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

Lieut-Commander Peter Smithers: 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 — 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...

Simplified English Spelling (6 Mar 1952)

Sir Isaac Pitman: ...of inter-communications, and that in itself is a very successful first-step in providing for more effective communications. The Navy is the Senior Service. Moreover it has its own air force—the Fleet Air Arm. The Royal Navy, as such, ought to set a lead amongst the other Services in co-ordinating communicating efficiency. Moreover, Britain is the senior country because it is the parent...

Orders of the Day — Far Eastern Situation (5 Feb 1953)

Mr Peter Roberts: If the hon. Member for Attercliffe (Mr. J. Hynd) follows out his argument, does it not mean, if it is a United Nations responsibility and he wishes to keep a fleet between the mainland and Formosa, that he is suggesting that, if the Americans do not do it someone else should, which means that we might have to send our ships?

Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Navy: Destroyer, Newport (Coronation Visit) (29 Apr 1953)

Mr Peter Freeman: asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he will arrange for ships of Her Majesty's Fleet to visit Newport during the Coronation festivities.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Foreign and British-caught Fish (Landing Restrictions) (11 Jun 1953)

Mr Peter Thorneycroft: ...(Immature Sea Fish) Order, 1948. On the second part of the Question, I assume that my hon. Friend has in mind those Western European countries which are fairly easily accessible to our fishing fleets. Import arrangements in those countries vary considerably. Portugal and Switzerland admit imports of British-caught fish almost without restriction. Norway, France, Western Germany, Sweden,...

Orders of the Day — Protection of Birds Bill: Third Schedule. — (Wild Birds Which May Be Killed or Taken Outside the Close Season.) (9 Apr 1954)

Sir Frederick Burden: ...slaughters and I am rather surprised that names have not been forthcoming. My noble Friend has pressed for further information and I know that very considerable pressure was brought upon Mr. Peter Scott to obtain the information. This is right, to ensure that those not responsible shall not be blamed and that those responsible shall be made to realise in no uncertain mariner how revolting...

Orders of the Day — Fisheries Bill (14 Feb 1955)

Mr Arthur Woodburn: ...the fishing industry is efficient fishing and some co-operation with the organisation which we set up. The Report says that when there is a big rush of fish, the fishermen go into Fraserburgh and Peter-head but ignore Wick, where a great organisation has been set up to deal with the fish, with the result that Fraserburgh and Peterhead are overloaded while Wick stands idle. I hope the...

Civil Aviation (20 Dec 1955)

Mr Percy Lucas: ...its representation does not include sufficient practical knowledge of the operation of modern post-war aircraft. This Corporation exists for one purpose and one purpose only—to operate a great fleet of aircraft in competition with world airlines. How much first-hand experience of the actual operation of modern civil transport aircraft, with all the responsibilities which this involves,...

Orders of the Day — Civil Estimates and Estimates for Revenue Departments, Supplementary Estimate, 1955–56; Army, Air and Navy Estimates, 1956–57, and Navy Supplementary Estimate, 1955–56, and Civil Excesses, 1954–55.: Vote 2. Victualling and Clothing for the Navy (15 Mar 1956)

Commander Sir Peter Agnew: ...frequently to become a connoisseur. Does the Admiralty still use British Guiana rum and keep it in store, maturing it in victualling yards for a reasonable number of years before issuing it to the Fleet?

Public Authorities (Public Relations) (8 Jun 1956)

Sir Peter Kirk: ...up their friends. One has to run down the street where there are two public telephones and, if they are occupied, and one is working for an evening newspaper—as I was—one has to take a bus to Fleet Street and probably arrive just after the last edition has gone to press. I think the Foreign Office might show more co-operation in this respect. It is typical of Government Departments...

Civil Aviation (2 Nov 1956)

Mr Frank Beswick: .... I have said before that, in addition to individual promotion upwards, there should, in my view, be a greater devolution of responsibility downwards upon the flying staff. In particular, the fleet and flight captains and the captains of aircraft could and should be entrusted with greater responsibility in matters of organisation and discipline. Provided there is a proper relation and...

British Information Services (14 Dec 1956)

Captain Sir Peter Macdonald: ...Ambassador and Embassy were so much better informed. On Monday, 5th November, the American authorities alerted all their nationals in Egypt—some two or three thousand, I believe—organised a fleet of cars, arranged transport and ships, and got them all out in record time.

Orders of the Day — WHITE FISH AND HERRING INDUSTRIES (No. 2) BILL (12 Mar 1957)

.... Members may think that the fact that we have now to cover the herring subsidy as well as other subsidies within a total of £17 million or £19 million must mean that we are robbing "White fish Peter", as it were, to pay "Herring fisherman Paul." Were these overall sums of £17 million and £19 million precisely calculated, there would be some substance in that criticism. In fact, we...

Orders of the Day — Obscene Publications Bill (29 Mar 1957)

Mr Emrys Hughes: the next. Even we in this House are inclined to be mealy-mouthed these days. Recently, I was speaking in the debate on the Air Estimates, and the hon. Member for the Isle of Wight (Sir Peter Macdonald) was sitting opposite. I asked, rhetorically—which is a bad habit of mine—what was the cost of a bomber, and the hon. Member said "A hell of a lot." In HANSARD next day it was...

Orders of the Day — DR. Adams (Trial) (1 May 1957)

Mr Peter Rawlinson: ...—unless the hon. Gentleman thinks they are all a collection of rogues—this kind of conduct happening, information slipping out, and being handed out to the Press in the dark corners of bars in Fleet Street after conferences, as has been suggested by the hon. Gentleman. If that has happened, then let that be investigated, and let it be prosecuted, if that should come to light. But what...
