Orders of the Day — Expiring Laws Continuance Bill: Schedule. — (Acts Continued Till End of December 1967) (8 Nov 1966)

Mr Harold Gurden: ...people. These things cannot be stopped by laws. The other day, I read a report of an incident in which a Commonwealth immigrant had taken up a gun to defend himself from someone who had thrown a firework on his doorstep. This is made publicly known in the Press, but, if it were the other way round, we should hear very little about it. Because it happened to a Commonwealth immigrant, it is...

Rhodesia (10 Nov 1966)

Mr Reginald Paget: ...I am afraid that that applies to the black as well as to the white people. Tomorrow there is an anniversary and in Rhodesia there will be great celebrations in all the tribal areas. There will be fireworks, and I am afraid that my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister is apt to be featuring in a Guy Fawkes rôle. That is the atmosphere. There is no alternative Government in Rhodesia, and I...

Orders of the Day — ROYAL ASSENT BILL [Lords]: Clause 1 — (Signification of Royal Assent.) (24 Apr 1967)

Mr Dingle Foot: ...celebrate St. David's Day, with daffodils; in Cornwall we would no longer have the floral dance; in England there would be no pancakes on Shrove Tuesday, no Cup Final in May, no Derby in June, no fireworks on 5th November, no pantomime at Christmas, and no Aldermaston march at Easter. We should miss these ancient ceremonies. We want to keep them—including the ceremony of the Royal...

Orders of the Day — Queen's Speech: Foreign Affairs (2 Nov 1967)

Mr Emanuel Shinwell: At a moment when the whole world is looking forward expectantly to an exhibition of fireworks in this assembly, to a clash of personalities, to a demonstration of acrimony and acerbity, we have descended to an insipid, tame repetitive foreign affairs debate. We have had this sort of thing before. It is just the mixture as before. Neither from the Opposition Front Bench—despite my respect...

Transport (6 Nov 1967)

Mr Albert Murray: ...opposite that we were told to expect at the time of the Tory Party conference, one need only look at the almost empty benches opposite to realise what an empty attack this has been. Like so many fireworks on Saturday and Sunday night, this attack has turned out to be a damp squib. We had a shadowy attack from the shadowy Minister of Transport, which proved to be no more effective than his...

Orders of the Day — Ways and Means: Amendment of the Law (19 Mar 1968)

Mr John Lee: ...justify such measures. I am sure that this control of wages will create a great deal of resentment. The one valid point which the Leader of the Opposition seemed able to make in his rather frantic firework display was the fact that every time the Government introduce prices and incomes legislation they say it is for the last time—rather like the old lag whose safe-blowing job is always...

Orders of the Day — Post Office (Two-Tier Letter System) (4 Nov 1968)

Mr John Stonehouse: When I heard that the Opposition had chosen the whole of today's debate on the Gracious Speech to debate the Post Office I expected that firework right would be transferred from 5th November to 4th November. What we have had today has been a damp squib. The debate has petered out. The Opposition points are completely inadequate.

Orders of the Day — Economic Situation (5 Nov 1968)

Mr John Biffen: a very substantial degree of importation of wines? Let hon Members think of the enormous boost always given to cigar sales at Christmas. Was there ever an industry so cyclical unless it was the fireworks industry, if I may work in that highly contemporary allusion? There is no doubt that the import content that could be involved in the deflection of consumer demand deriving from the...

Clause 1: Voting Age (26 Nov 1968)

Mr John Lee: ...are here concerned, I find the hon. Gentleman's argument thoroughly disingenuous. My right hon. Friend the Member for Vauxhall (Mr. Strauss), in opening the debate, was subjected to a good deal of fireworks from all about him. As one who takes a view different from his, I think it right to note that he deserved a word of praise, even from his opponents, for his good-tempered and...

Industrial Relations (White Paper) (3 Mar 1969)

Mrs Barbara Castle: ...agreement should if necessary be enforceable at law. This is not only confusing: it is potentially sinister. What exactly do right hon. Gentlemen opposite mean? Either they are trying to make a firework display out of a damp squib, or they have in mind something far more far-reaching, and are hiding their real intentions from the House. I repeat that it is—or will be—possible to make...

Orders of the Day — Civil Science (21 Jul 1969)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: ...on the subject and I was staggered, as he may have been, by the list of his responsibilities. I will not bore the House by reading the list, but it includes 40 subjects starting with explosives and fireworks and going on through steel tubes, iron castings, non-ferrous metals, agricultural machinery, metal working machine tools, pumps, valves and compressors, industrial engines, textile...

BLACKPOOL CORPORATION BILL [Lords] (By Order) (16 Oct 1969)

Mr Peter Blaker: .... Concerning the power to provide entertainments in the parks, the Bill simply enables the corporation to enclose not more than one acre for certain classes of entertainment or to close a park for fireworks at night. For those reasons, I hope that the House will approve the Bill. The most powerful point that I have mentioned is that if Blackpool Corporation is denied the powers it seeks,...
