European Situation.: Prime Minister's Statement. (3 Oct 1938)

Mr George Lansbury: ...down to the question of how we can bring the abundance of the world to the service of mankind. I wish that I could have taken down a shorthand report of the four interviews with King Carol, King Boris, here in London, the Regent of Hungary and the Regent of Yugoslavia, for I have never met men who were more in earnest about this question. They have their minorities. They are making a...

Orders of the Day — King's Speech.: Debate on the Address. (9 Nov 1938)

Mr Morgan Price: ...when internal difficulties have prevented her from taking any interest in events outside her own borders. That has happened repeatedly to that country, from the troublous times that followed Boris Godunov down to the times when, after the invasion of Russia by Napoleon, she was for a time rendered almost incapable of taking action or taking any interest in Europe, but she has always come...

Orders of the Day — War Situation. (6 Aug 1941)

Commander Sir Archibald Southby: ...material. When Rumania fell we did not attempt to bomb the Germans there, and we made no real effort to bomb and destroy the oil wells. Bulgaria wobbled and ultimately fell. We threatened King Boris with all sorts of pains and penalties, but what attempt did we make to carry out our threats? In his speech of 9th April the Prime Minister said: For some months past we have witnessed and...

Man-Power (24 Sep 1943)

Mr David Evans: ...age similar to that of those whom they are interviewing. There is an old saying in the Welsh language which I will quote and explain to the Minister what it means. It is: Yr oen yn dysgw'r ddafad i bori. It means "The lamb teaching the mother sheep to graze." We do not want younger women here to teach the older women how to behave in the country's state of war. I am very glad to have the...

Orders of the Day — War and International Situation (29 Sep 1944)

Hon. Harold Nicolson: ...that after every unsuccessful war—and they are gaining experience—they throw away the bandolier of the comitadji and appear arrayed in peasant garb saying: "It was not us; it was that wicked Boris led us astray." We must not allow that to happen this time. This House must insist that Bulgaria is not rewarded by the acquisition of lands which formerly belonged to Yugoslavia or Greece or...

Orders of the Day — King's Speech: Debate on the Address (20 Aug 1945)

Major Lyall Wilkes: ...rights in Europe would sound a little more convincing to some hon. Members on this side of the House, if they had not before this war been such obsequious supporters of the police States of Carol, Boris, Stoyadinovitch and Colonel Beck. And if it be not too controversial for a maiden speech, I would say that some hon. Members on this side of the House suspect that there are other motives...

Bulgaria (12 Nov 1946)

Mr John Mack: ...German-imported monarchs they freely admit—"Foxy Ferdinand"—now aged, I believe, 87, and hiding somewhere in Austria—whose machinations are familiar to all students of history; then his son Boris, an ignominious weak creature who followed the policy of his father; and later King Simeon, a child aged nine, now in Egypt as a result of the proclamation of a republic in Bulgaria a little...

B.B.C. Russian Broadcasts (Jamming) (30 Jul 1949)

Mr John Haire: ...their own people. Three days ago the Moscow Home Service programme put out the following talk about London, in a programme series called "From the Map of the World," the author of which is given as Boris Izakov. Some of the descriptions given in this talk on London make most interesting reading and must have been very interesting listening for the Russian radio listeners. London is the...

Orders of the Day — Obscene Publications (16 Dec 1958)

Mr Nigel Nicolson: Professor of Literature at Cornell University, in the United States. There is no question but that he is a man with an already very high literary reputation. He has been described as a second Boris Pasternak. His books, some of which have been translated into English and some not, have been acclaimed by distinguished literary critics all over the world. Lolita is the first of his books...

Orders of the Day — Marshall Scholarships Bill (6 Nov 1959)

Mr Emrys Hughes: ...what contribution the recipient has made to the thought of his time. I remember that last year when the Noble Peace Prize for Literature was announced there was tremendous interest in the Russian, Boris Pasternak. People began to say, "We shall have to see what this man has written, what contribution he has made." As a result, people began reading Pasternak's books. I hope that now, as an...

Clause 2: Inspector of Taxes (Conduct) (4 Dec 1968)

Mr Tom Iremonger: ...importance—is an act of callous cruelty however we look at it. If we do not like to look at it from the point of view of John Gordon in the Sunday Express, we can look at it from the angle of Boris Nabokov. For no one has ever explained it more poignantly and perceptively than he did in his novel "Lolita". Altogether it would be impossible to imagine conduct more dishonourable, and, in...

Orders of the Day — Grants for the Arts (5 Feb 1970)

Mrs Renée Short: ...of the chorus. It now has a chorus of 36 singers who are fully engaged with the company. It also uses amateurs. I had the pleasure of seeing an absolutely magnificent performance of Boris Godunov at the New Theatre in Cardiff. At that time there were 127 chorus singers on the stage. It was a very good performance. The Company has also joined Opera for All. A small group, as in Scotland,...

Orders of the Day — Merchant Shipping Bill (29 Nov 1973)

Dr John Gilbert: ...Sir, On behalf of Capitalfin International Limited of … Nassau, Bahamas, Alvada Investment Company … Hamilton, Bermuda, Alvion Holding and Investment Corporation … Monrovia, Liberia and Mr. Boris Vlasov of … Monte Carlo". The Minister will see that these are all overseas addresses. In other words, the entire control of this important British company would fall overseas. Perhaps a...

Foreign Affairs (25 Mar 1975)

Mr Greville Janner: but also in the Soviet Union. We know that the KGB has instituted a further campaign of persecution and harassment of Soviet people, including particularly trade unionists, two of whom, Mr. Boris Tsitlionok, a toolmaker, and Mark Nashbits, a dentist, are coming up on trial precisely because they took part in a demonstration in Moscow and stood holding a banner. They are liable to a...

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Cbi and TUC (14 Oct 1976)

Mr Winston Churchill: ..., Mr. Alexander Shelepin? Will he say whether he shares the enthusiasm of the National Executive Committee of his own party for the forthcoming visit as an official guest of the Labour Party of Mr. Boris Pomonaryov, who is charged with supervising the furtherance of the interests of Soviet imperialism in countries outside the Eastern bloc, or will the right hon. Gentleman choose this...

Business of the House (28 Oct 1976)

[That this House deplores the decision of the Labour Party to extend an official invitation to visit Great Britain to Mr. Boris Ponomarev, the senior member of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the USSR charged with furthering the interests of Soviet imperalism in countries outside the Eastern Bloc; and calls on the Prime Minister and the Foreign Secretary to dissociate the...
