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...

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 — 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...

Orders of the Day — Military Aircraft (Loans) Bill: Clause 1. — (Issues from Consolidated Fund for Purchase of Military Aircraft and Related Purposes.) (17 May 1966)

Mr Robin Maxwell-Hyslop: to the price of replacements. The Committee must know this before we move on from this Amendment, otherwise we may find that, having lit the blue touch paper, there is much more in the firework than we thought because this commitment is not limited to the 50 aircraft about which we have been talking. If we are to have them for an operational rôle, we shall need replacements for them...

Orders of the Day — National Insurance Bill: Clause 1. — (Amendments Relating to Graduated Contributions.) (16 Feb 1966)

Sir Keith Joseph: ...them a remission of 50 per cent. of the cost if they provide adequately by their own arrangements. This is not a monstrous proposal. It is worth examining soberly. I am glad that after the fireworks the right hon. Lady did examine it soberly. She made the sort of strong case we expected, but we wanted to probe it. This ¼ per cent. on each side is 50 per cent. of the surcharge and it...

Wales (4 Nov 1965)

Mr David Gibson-Watt: ...(Mr. Michael Foot), who suddenly discovered that it is Guy Fawkes' Day tomorrow and who thought to cheer things up a little. I rather likened the speeches of the two hon. Members to one of those firework displays when there are two Catherine wheels upon a wire: one infects and lights up the other. Earlier today the right hon. Gentleman the Secretary of State, and others, referred to the...

Civil Estimates, 1965–66: Agriculture (Annual Farm Price Review) (31 Mar 1965)

Mr Paul Hawkins: ...not, however, solely confined to farming. There are excellent modern industries, with first-class records of productivity and labour relations, including clock and furniture making, trailer works, fireworks—and here I add that I have none in my pocket—and light engineering. We are also very proud of the Service connection in South-West Norfolk. We have the R.A.F. stations at Marham...

Orders of the Day — Consumer Protection (25 Mar 1965)

Mr Paul Rose: ...which a great many products can be required to conform to certain standards. I wonder whether the House would agree that this is particularly important in respect of dangerous articles such as fireworks. In my division we have a hospital which contains the burns unit for the whole of the Manchester area. Many tragic cases are admitted to it. It is a children's hospital, and if any hon. or...

Orders of the Day — Travel Concessions Bill (13 Nov 1964)

Mr Victor Goodhew: ..., will fall down on the job as they did last time. Today we are not opposing this Bill, but let hon. Members opposite know that it is not good enough for them just to start off with a shower of fireworks today and then go to the country in a few months' time thinking that that is all that matters. Account will have to be rendered in the end, and unless they are careful with their financial...

Ferranti LTD. (Lang Report) (30 Jul 1964)

Mr Ian Orr-Ewing: I suppose that as this is the last day of a full House of Commons one must expect a certain amount of fireworks, but I would have expected a more statesmanlike speech from the right hon. Gentleman the Leader of the Opposition—[HON. MEMBERS: "Oh."]—than the very personal attack that he made on my right hon. Friend the Minister. The technique is this. The speaker says that a Minister is...

Orders of the Day — Supply: The South-East Study (4 May 1964)

Mr Anthony Hurd: .... This is very true. I should warn the Minister that, whatever other feelings have been aroused so far— the good will of the local inhabitants"— has not been kindled and he must expect some fireworks at the Newbury meeting later this month. We want an early decision so that we can get on with our ordinary lives and business without meeting this new city bogey at every turn. Every...

Orders of the Day — Resale Prices Bill: Clause 3. — (Exception for Measures Against Loss Leaders.) (8 Apr 1964)

Mr Charles Loughlin: ...means by seasonal goods. Possibly, many other hon. Members must likewise plead ignorance. Again, somebody spoke of crackers. I was not sure whether he was referring to Christmas crackers or to fireworks. The right hon. Gentleman, however, referred merely to seasonal goods, to diaries, Christmas cards and other Christmas stationery. That is not a runner, either. The right hon. Gentleman has...

Orders of the Day — Resale Prices Bill: Royal Assent (25 Mar 1964) Consolidated Fund (No. 2) Act, 1964.2. Rating (Interim Relief) Act, 1964.3. Married Women's Property Act, 1964.4.

Resale Prices Bill (23 Mar 1964)

Mr Anthony Marlowe: ...that many of them are grievously hurt by the Bill and want to be exempt from its repercussions. Stationery, newspapers and magazines are also usually sold in the corner shops, together with fireworks in season. There again, these are small people who scratch a slender living and should be kept in being. The small shopkeeper is one of the British institutions and we should hesitate a...

Orders of the Day — Industrial Training Bill: Schedule. — (Industrial Training Boards.) (21 Jan 1964)

Mr Christopher Chataway: ...for Rutland and Stamford (Mr. K. Lewis) that the Report stage was a pleasant one in which to work. There has been a broad measure of agreement and on that account one may not have seen as many fireworks as on occasions in Committee. It has undoubtedly been an interesting experience for those of us who have been privileged to serve on the Bill. Clearly, improvements have been made as a...
