Orders of the Day — Representation of the People (Equal Franchise) Bill. (29 Mar 1928)

Brigadier-General Sir George Cockerill: ...for Cheltenham (Sir J. Agg Gardner), in some very delightful reminiscences which he published lately, referred to something he had heard to the effect that no speech had ever changed a vote, though many had changed opinion. I am in this difficult position, that whereas I should like to change votes, if the right hon. Gentleman is right, I must be careful lest I change opinion. I shall get...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Dominions Office. (18 Apr 1929)

Lieut-Colonel Leo Amery: ...which it is important should be made real and alive to the people of this country. I believe that we have in a very large measure succeeded in doing that. It is of course impossible, since so many factors come into play, to ascertain exactly what contribution the posters of the Empire Marketing Board have made to the undoubted fact that the percentage of Empire purchases in this country...

Dominion Affairs (2 Dec 1943)

Professor Douglas Savory: ...Poland meant at the end of the 18th century, when Poland by a threefold partition was completely split up between Prussia, Russia and Austria. We remember the eloquent letter of the Empress Maria Theresa to her daughter Marie Antoinette, Queen of France, in which she said that the partition was contrary to her conscience but that she had made her son co-equal in the Empire and it was he...

Orders of the Day — King's Speech: Debate on the Address (30 Nov 1944)

Major Frederick Cundiff: I welcome the pronouncement in the Gracious Speech from the Throne that we, with our Allies, are pressing the enemy on his own borders, and that, from the East and from the West, Germany is being invaded. This initial occupation of Reich territory is, for the Germans, the beginning of the end, and for us it is a pre-requisite of our victory to come. I am deeply conscious of my temerity and my...

Orders of the Day — Coinage Bill: Clause 1. — (Cupro-nickel coins to be legal tender for payments up to forty shillings.) (18 Oct 1946)

Sir Walter Fletcher: ...florin was introduced: there was a great upset in the native mind on matters of currency; and huge quantities of silver currency, which had been hoarded, started to come in, and even the old Maria Theresa Thaler, a first-class coin, came in, in thousands of pounds. Many people regard currency, and the form of the currency, as being a sort of sign manual of the standards of their country....

Equal Pay (Public Services) (16 May 1952)

Mr James Hudson: ...Teachers' Association, I moved a resolution in favour of equal pay. On that occasion it was voted for by only about five out of 700 people. Two were well-known suffragettes, one of whom was Theresa Billington. It was about the same time that I was associated with Christobel Pankhurst. [HON. MEMBERS: "Oh "] Hon. Gentlemen opposite would not express any resentment if they were in real...

Tanganyika Independence Bill (8 Nov 1961)

Mr Henry Clark: ..., but will remain in Tanganyika. I speak particularly of the chiefs and the native authorities, not the great chiefs of whom one immediately thinks—such as Fundikira, Humbi, Adam Sapi, Mwami Theresa Ntare, Ambuje Mataka—but the smaller men, the jumbes and liwalis. They are people who, inevitably, during the last five years, have had a stigma as being stooges and supporters of the...

Orders of the Day — Queen's Speech: Debate on the Address (31 Oct 1962)

Mr William Yates: ...Mr. Khrushchev and what the Soviet people so earnestly desire from the Western world and what they have earnestly desired for the last three years. It is an agreement on Berlin and East and West Germany. Therefore, was there not some temptation for Mr. Khrushchev following the obvious breakdown of the Foreign Ministers' Conference in Geneva? People who were there said quite frankly that...

Orders of the Day — DIPLOMATIC PRIVILEGES BILL [Lords] (1 Jul 1964)

Sir Henry Legge-Bourke: ...of this sort we should ensure that they enjoy all the privileges necessary for them to carry out such tasks. An idea was put into my head by an old friend of mine who has served this country in many capacities, having been a Member of the House at one time, and has I think paid out the troops of Haile Sellassie in silver coinage of the late lamented Maria Theresa. There is in fact a law...

Hospital Services, Birmingham Area (Private Patients) (28 Jan 1972)

Mr Leslie Huckfield: ...private patients to be seen and allowed £30,000 to be collected in fees in 18 months when no authorisation for private practice had been given. This is the regional hospital board that sacked Mrs. Theresa Stewart because she found out what was happening at Walsgrave. This is the regional hospital board that has owned up to having what I can only describe as private nursing homes run...

Opposition Day: Co-operation and Economic Development in the Commonwealth (21 Nov 1983)

Mr Stuart Holland: ...balance would still be positive at 0·12 per cent. The balance of goods and services on trade would deteriorate by only 0·02 per cent. Recovery is mutual. That is the Brandt reports' message. Many Conservative Members are open to that point. What about the recovery in Europe? Can anything be done? Are we to consider only the Commonwealth conference, or will the Government respond to...

North-East Lancashire Enterprise Zone (19 Apr 1988)

Mr Kenneth Hargreaves: ...space. The older industrial stock is strongly associated with textiles and consists of multi-storey spinning mills and single-storey northlight weaving sheds. As the cotton industry has declined, many mills have been sub-divided. They are often in poor condition and unsuited to modern industrial methods, and situated on cramped and inadequate sites. Difficulties with internal layout, as...

Orders of the Day — Social Security Bill: Income Related Benefits (24 Apr 1989)

Paul Flynn: ...in these categories to receive income support during the three months child benefit extension period. As a result of the great pressures that have been exerted on the Government by the Opposition, many organisations, local authorities and hon. Members on both sides of the Standing Committee on the Bill, the small concessions announced by the Minister on 13 March came into effect. Again,...

Adjournment (Christmas) (20 Dec 1989)

Mr John Bowis: ...recent events in Romania. It is one of the most tragic episodes in post-war European history, certainly in my lifetime, to see a European country engaged in the slaughter of its own people. Not so many years ago, that country was seen as a gateway to the West for Communist eastern and central Europe. Now, under the same leader, it has gone downhill helter-skelter into tyranny. It is sad to...

Clause 2: Initial Drawing Up of the. New Constituencies (7 Jul 1993)

Mr Robert Maclennan: I listened with care and interest to the Home Secretary's exposition of his difference with the official Opposition over the amendment. It seemed to boil down to a difference of seven weeks. As many more than seven weeks have elapsed since the problem came to public attention, he cannot be absolved of responsibility for the imbroglio in which we find ourselves. As he spoke, I was reminded of...

Orders of the Day — Local Government Finance (3 Feb 1994)

Jack Straw: I agree. I congratulate Birmingham city council on its excellent record in economic and social development. On the issue of the so-called prestige projects, Councillor Theresa Stewart said in her budget speech: I want to say a word about the so-called prestige projects which I am supposed to love to hate. I believe we have safeguarded their position in the budget. She recognises their...

Prayers: Inner Cities (25 Mar 1994)

Keith Vaz: ...turned the right hon. and learned Member for Folkestone and Hythe (Mr. Howard) into the Hughie Green of regeneration policy. It was an "Opportunity Knocks" policy, with very few winners and many losers. Labour Members support the idea of funds being made available for inner-city areas, but we cannot accept the fact that there were so few winners in the game show and that the funds made...

Local Government (Birmingham) (15 Mar 1995)

Mrs Jill Knight: No, I will not give way to any hon. Members. I have too many questions and answers myself, and I hope that there will be plenty of time for other hon. Members to put their oar in. There cannot be any excuse for spending money on activities like the women's festival while people still do not have indoor lavatories. I am astonished that any hon. Member would defend that position. So...

Orders of the Day — Education (Schools) Bill (2 Jun 1997)

Theresa May: ...pains to point out to my colleagues that I represented Maidenhead rather than Maidstone. That was particularly pertinent in the early days of this Parliament. Being a Conservative Member called Theresa adds a certain interest to my life in the House; I am thinking of acquiring a badge reading, "No, I am the other one." To cap it all, on the morning when I moved into my new office, when the...

Orders of the Day — Education (Schools) Bill: Abolition of Assisted Places Scheme in England and Wales (5 Jun 1997)

Theresa May: ...argued, including the reduction in class sizes. What will the mechanism be for that? How will it be achieved? How will local education authorities be encouraged to carry out the Government's aim? Many other issues relate to that, including appeals bodies and popular schools. It is in the Government's interests to delay implementation and use the time to stop and think. When they put the...
