Orders of the Day — Public Works (Festival of Britain) Bill (10 Feb 1949)

Mr Thomas Naylor: No one can deny the importance and necessity of the Bill to which we are asked to give a Second Reading. The task, as set out in the Bill, indicates the very great problems that will be set for the Commissioner of Police. It is, in that respect, rather unfortunate that we should be obliged to choose a site in what is probably one of the most congested areas in London for traffic. That means,...

Orders of the Day — Representation of the People Bill: Clause 1. — (Constituencies and electors.) (17 Mar 1948)

Mr Thomas Naylor: I hope it will not be regarded as an impertinence if a London Member joins in this discussion, especially one who happens to represent a borough contiguous to the City of London. That, of course, does not necessarily give me any right to presume that I can contribute to the discussion in any greater measure than hon. and right hon. Members who live in other parts of the country, but there...

Orders of the Day — Parliament Bill (10 Dec 1947)

Mr Thomas Naylor: The hon. Member for Wavertree (Mr. Raikes) suggested that the House of Lords is a paragon of virtue and progress. I challenge and deny the suggestion. I recollect certain occasions when the House of Lords was in no sense a progressive body, and when many working-class Bills passed in the House of Commons were afterwards rejected by the House of Lords. At that time, just as now, the House of...

Orders of the Day — Parliament Bill (10 Dec 1947)

Mr Thomas Naylor: This Bill gives no powers at all to the House of Lords. It simply reduces the suspensory veto of the Lords from two years to one year. That brings me to the consideration of the suggestion that we are making a constitutional change. I do not regard this question as being of an academic character. I do not approach it from the academic point of view, because I am a layman and not a professor...

Parliament Bill (10 Dec 1947)

Mr Thomas Naylor: When I heard that knock at the door, Mr. Speaker, I was afraid that I had committed some great indiscretion. I was expecting that the other place had sent for me. I was, at the time, trying to show that the mere alteration of the time limit of the suspensory veto was not an alteration of the Constitution because it did not affect the structure of the Constitution. Hon. Members opposite have...

Book Imports (Restrictions) (4 Dec 1947)

Mr Thomas Naylor: I am in agreement with the opinions that have been expressed by the three hon. Members who have spoken. The point I wish to raise is rather different, although it is part and parcel of the same subject. It concerns a matter which was brought to my notice recently. A Scottish firm of printers had decided to bring out a new monthly magazine for boys and girls. The firm in question is of high...

Book Imports (Restrictions) (4 Dec 1947)

Mr Thomas Naylor: I am just finishing, and my hon. Friend can follow me.

Book Imports (Restrictions) (4 Dec 1947)

Mr Thomas Naylor: Yes, I say that I am in sympathy with a great deal of what hon. Members have said; yet this case seems to raise the question of shipping space. I agree that we must exclude all that my hon. Friend wishes to exclude, but still I should require an explanation from the Board of Trade whether what is proposed to be done, or perhaps is actually being done, is consistent with the national economy...

Orders of the Day — Parliament Bill (11 Nov 1947)

Mr Thomas Naylor: Is it not a fact that in yesterday's Debate the Lord President of the Council also said that this was a question not of principle but of degree?

Orders of the Day — Parliament Bill (11 Nov 1947)

Mr Thomas Naylor: I hope I shall be forgiven if I do not follow the arguments used by the hon. and learned Member for Carmarthen (Mr. Hopkin Morris) and my hon. Friend the Member for Stoke (Mr. Ellis Smith). While I am in agreement with the main contention of those speeches, I do not consider the time opportune for further discussion of the question of the reform of the House of Lords as a Second Chamber. We...

Procedure (Standing Orders) (4 Nov 1947)

Mr Thomas Naylor: What about those who have to listen?

Newsprint Import Restrictions (17 Jul 1947)

Mr Thomas Naylor: I am not attempting to enter into the discussion at this late hour, but my association with the newspaper industry in particular, and with the printing industry in general, prompts me to make a suggestion to the Member of the Government who is to reply to the Debate. I was present on Wednesday last at a meeting of the National Joint Industrial Council of the Printing and Kindred Trades...

Oral Answers to Questions — Police Inquiries, London (15 May 1947)

Mr Thomas Naylor: asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department for what reason was A. T. Hurst, 108, Mann Street, Southwark, arrested in the early morning of 30th April by two officers of the C.I.D., after he had produced his identity card and service discharge papers, when he was forced into the police motor-car and driven to Bow Street Station without any charge being preferred against him and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Police Inquiries, London (15 May 1947)

Mr Thomas Naylor: Was the Home Secretary informed that when this man was taken up, he said that he thought this was a free country, and the reply came from one of the detective officers, "This is not going to be a free country any more"; further, that when they had conducted their investigations at Bow Street police station, a detective came into the office, after a few hours, and said, "Everything is all...

Orders of the Day — Book Publishing Trade (9 May 1947)

Mr Thomas Naylor: Mr. Naylor (Southwark, South-East) rose—

Clause 1. — (Continuance of Acts in Schedule.) (29 Nov 1946)

Mr Thomas Naylor: May I ask whether my hon. Friend would be in Order in moving a manuscript Amendment to omit this particular Measure from the list of the expiring laws which it is sought to continue? If he is in Order in moving such an Amendment, would he not then be in Order in discussing the details of the Section?

Fair Wages (14 Oct 1946)

Mr Thomas Naylor: On a point of Order. The hon. and learned Member for the Combined English Universities (Mr. H. Strauss) is moving a very narrow Amendment and is making a long speech upon no point at all. I want to point out to you, Sir, that there is no difference whatever between the words "trade unions" as they stand in the Motion and "trade union" as proposed in the Amendment.

Orders of the Day — Highway Code (31 Jul 1946)

Mr Thomas Naylor: On a point of Order, Mr. Speaker, I want to know whether, in the event of the House passing the Highway Code as it is presented to us tonight, and in the probable event of certain hon. Members making suggestions during the discussion for improving the wording of the Code, it will be within the power of the Minister to adopt any of the suggestions that arise out of the discussions, or whether...

Orders of the Day — Highway Code (31 Jul 1946)

Mr Thomas Naylor: Does that mean, Mr. Speaker, that it will be of no use for me, for instance, to make any suggestions for alteration? I know that other hon. Members are here to make suggestions for improving the wording of the Highway Code and we do not, I feel sure, agree with the Parliamentary Secretary when he describes the wording as vigorous, and colloquial and understandable by the public. It seems to...

Soap (Rationing) Order (10 Jul 1946)

Mr Thomas Naylor: Are we to understand that, after what has taken place, another place is discharged without a stain on its character?
