School Meals Service (14 May 1954)

Mr Arthur Moyle: ...of necessitous schoolchildren, I read the report of the debates in another place. One noble Lord said that he would have nothing to do with such a scheme because it was lit up with the fantastic fireworks of Socialism. I am perfectly certain that neither the Parliamentary Secretary nor the right hon. Lady the Minister of Education are possessed of any such hallucinations about this...

Orders of the Day — EMERGENCY LAWS (MISCELLANEOUS PROVISIONS) BILL [Lords] (26 Jun 1953)

Mr David Maxwell Fyfe: ...persons of criminal intent to obtain them. I hope it will also serve to protect people from harming themselves by rash handling of explosives, particularly young people who try to make their own fireworks. I hasten to assure the House that the Order-making power under this Clause is less wide than the power in the Defence Regulations. The Orders contemplated will be less restrictive to...

Orders of the Day — Emergency Laws (Miscellaneous Provisions) (27 Nov 1952)

Major Geoffrey Bing: ...Regulation is headed "Access to certain Premises and Areas." These are Regulations concerning "Assisting the Enemy and Sabotage." There is left only one Regulation which deals with the carriage of fireworks in railway trains. The whole form of the thing is absolutely absurd. And that brings me to what was described by some people as the "olive branch" offered by the Home Secretary. I do...

Orders of the Day — Transport, Scotland (28 Jul 1952)

Major Sir Duncan McCallum: ..., and I am sure that we shall look forward to many further contributions from him. If I may say so with respect, however, if his speech this afternoon was non-controversial we shall have some fireworks flying when he makes a controversial speech. I should like to deal with the point which the right hon. Member for East Stirling (Mr. Woodburn) asked me to elaborate if I were fortunate...

National Health Service (Charges) (2 Jul 1952)

Mr John Vaughan-Morgan: Before the hon. Lady the Member for Lanarkshire, North (Miss Herbison) rose, it was remarkable how few had been the fireworks in this debate compared with what one might have expected from the impassioned speeches on Second Reading of the Bill. The right hon. Gentleman the Member for Greenock (Mr. McNeil) and those who succeeded him were very restrained and seemed, on the whole, to have...

Festival Pleasure Gardens Bill (26 Nov 1951)

Mr Richard Stokes: ...objections raised before I gave up responsibility, I would say that they were mostly not frivolous, but concerned with those who live in the neighbourhood. The two things mostly objected to were fireworks and loudspeakers. In my time of responsibility, the fireworks were reduced to a minimum, from six performances to two; and, when we examined it, the loudspeakers had nothing to do with...

Mr Charles Gibson: ...suffer at night from that noise. I am told by people living in that road that there is absolutely no sound coming over to them from the fun fair, but that a good deal of sound reaches them when the fireworks are discharged. Incidentally, I hope the Minister will do something about the noise of the exploding rockets, which go off two or three times a week. I am told that people living...
