Mr William Morrison: The word "goose" is not in the list of unparliamentary expressions. The word is not in the list of forbidden phrases in Erskine May, and I think we have now got the matter settled.
Mr John Baird: I did use the word "hypocrite," Sir Charles, and if it is an unparliamentary term I certainly withdraw it, but the argument of the Minister was such that it is difficult to find a word for it.
Mr Reginald Paget: ...documents. An accusation of slander has been made. Those were repeated by the hon. Gentleman— I suppose one must so call him—today. I ask you, Mr. Rogers, to rule that those observations were unparliamentary and ought to be withdrawn.
Mr Charles Pannell: ..., whether it is in order for an hon. Lady to refer to hon. Gentlemen's guts and whether, if I had used that expression in relation to the hon. Lady, it would be taken as being ungentlemanly and unparliamentary?
Mr Winston Churchill: ...remark. To say that a Minister dealing with a highly technical and complicated question and endeavouring to give the House information is deliberately falsifying his statements is, I think, unparliamentary in its character.
Mr Samuel Silverman: May I say, Sir, that I never regard it as unparliamentary to accuse another Member of being the dupe of somebody's propaganda. Indeed, I think that the Joint Under-Secretary is himself in that position.
Mr William Morrison: I see nothing unparliamentary in the use of the adjective "Edwardian."
Mr George Thomas: On a point of order. Are you now ruling, Sir, that to use the word "misleading" is an unparliamentary expression?
Mr Cuthbert Alport: Is not the use of the word "hypocritical" an unparliamentary word, Mr. Speaker, and should it not be withdrawn?
Sir Rhys Morris: There is nothing unparliamentary in the expression, but an hon. Member should not shout.
Colonel Leonard Ropner: I heard the Minister say nothing unparliamentary.
Mr George Wigg: On a point of order, Sir Charles. Surely the hon. Lady is not in order to refer to a Member of the Front Bench as a bending palm tree? Is that not unparliamentary language?
Sir Rhys Morris: I am not asking for a conditional withdrawal of an unparliamentary expression.
Mr Alfred Robens: I am obliged to you for that, Mr. Speaker, because it absolves me from unparliamentary conduct in circulating these photographs. But as these photographs are of more than passing interest to Members of Parliament, would you give permission for them to be exhibited in the Library?
Sir Douglas Dodds-Parker: On a point of order. I ask for your protection, Mr. Speaker, against these unparliamentary expressions.
Mr Ellis Smith: On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. May we have that unparliamentary phrase withdrawn?
Mr William Morrison: The hon. Member should not use unparliamentary language. If I heard him aright he used an adjective in front of "Germans." I am not sure whether I did quite hear it.
Mr George Lindgren: I nearly became unparliamentary then. The hon. Gentleman and his hon. Friends have increased council house rents. They have put up the rates—
Mr Gordon Touche: It is not very polite language, but I do not think that it is strong enough to be unparliamentary.
Mr Frederick Erroll: I think that "impudence" is an unparliamentary word. [HON. MEMBERS: "No."] Whether it is or not, I think that the hon. Lady's supplementary question should be addressed to the building societies.
