Northern Ireland (25 Nov 1971)

Mr Harold Wilson: ...and again in our debates in the House, have used their authority to inform the House about it. Many of us on this side of the House owe part of our political education to reproductions of the Will Dyson cartoon in the old Daily Herald in 1919. Hon. Members opposite will know of it, too. It was a cartoon of the statesmen of Versailles and a child tragically labelled "class of 1940". The...

Youth Services (20 Mar 1967)

Mr Tam Dalyell: ...about the sponsorship of many events and I hope that my hon. Friend is looking into the whole question of sponsorship. What lessons have been learnt from the sad circumstances in which Geoff Dyson, after 13 years, left for abroad in 1960, and has my hon. Friend any comment to make about the whole question of the conflict between coaching and the administration? Does he consider that the...

British Museum Bill (20 Dec 1962)

Mr Gilbert Mitchison: ...the gross insufficiency of the annual amount that is provided. It is quite true that from time to time special grants are made. One grant I think the right hon. Gentleman mentioned was for the Dyson Perrins manuscripts. I do not want to trouble the House by going into the detail of all this, but I have a very distinct impression when looking at these grants rather carefully that the...

Orders of the Day — National Health Service Contributions Bill (15 Feb 1961)

Mr Ernest Fernyhough: ...this Minister will get from his mean and miserable Bill, so that there would be no need for it at all. This Bill reminds me very much of 1931. Older Members present will remember the famous Will Dyson cartoon at the time of some temporary economic difficulties when there had to be equality of sacrifice. The man with £ 5,000 was on the top rung of the ladder, and the unemployed man was on...

New Clause. — (Exemption from Estate Duty of Money Passing to Certain Galleries, Museums, etc.) (7 Jul 1959)

Mr Gilbert Mitchison: ...particularly notable picture or collection became available, and it was desired to make the acquisition, even as recently as in the case of the Ucello painting, "St. George and the Dragon "and the Dyson Perrins Manuscripts, they had to have a special supplement from the Treasury for the purchase, because the standing contributions were insufficient. The effect of this will be to put a...

Needs of the Arts (23 Jan 1959)

Mr Jocelyn Simon: ...Section 34 of the Finance Act. 1956 have cost over £1,100,000. Hon Members will recall the recent special grant of £50,000 to the British Museum which enabled them to complete the purchase of the Dyson Perrins manuscripts, the unique Lycurgus Cup and the Ilbert watches. I can now announce two further important acquisitions for the National Gallery. The masterpiece of the Flemish painter...

Economic Affairs (12 Feb 1957)

Mr Harold Wilson: ...Chancellor that will stick. Here we have the big difference between the parties. The Tory attitude is that when things are tough everyone must take a step down the ladder, as in the famous Will Dyson cartoon. We, on this side, say that the harder things are, the tougher they get, the greater the need to help the old, the sick and those in greatest need. We therefore call for new policies...

Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No. 2) BILL: New Clause. — (Exemption from Enterments Duty of Games and Sports Other than Horse Racing and Dog Racing.) (25 Jun 1956)

Mr Ellis Smith: ...?"] For example, here is one question which the Financial Secretary might consider. We have playing cricket for Lancashire at present—and we look like becoming the champions—a young man named Dyson, who is a professional. I hope that no one thinks that there are not many amateurs in cricket, because I happen to know a few. This man happens to be a professional, and if he plays in a...

Mr Richard Stokes: asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what were the qualifications of Mr. Dyson, chief of the commerce division, prior to joining the Control Commission for Germany, for the post which he now holds.

Orders of the Day — Trend of Population (16 Jul 1943)

Mr James Griffiths: ...make men and women choose to have children, we have to remember that every mother thinks of her baby son 20 years hence. The other day the "Daily Herald" reproduced a cartoon drawn by the late Will Dyson—of blessed memory to those who knew him during the negotiations over the Versailles Treasury. He showed the statesmen of Europe sitting in a room, and they were interrupted by the...

Private Business.: Clause 71. — (By-laws as to advertisements.) (27 Jul 1933)

Mr John Morris: Yes, that is so. The representative of the Home Office did not raise any objection at the time to the new clause. The Parliamentary agents to the Salford Corporation were Messrs. Dyson Bell and Company, and the senior partner of that firm subsequently interviewed the chairman of the committee, my hon. Friend the Member for Holderness, who was unavoidably prevented from attending when the...

Orders of the Day — Seditious and Blasphemous Teaching of Children Bill. (7 Apr 1933)

Colonel Josiah Wedgwood: wrong, I am going to employ every possible argument against him. Ridicule is the whole basis of Anatole France's attack on Christianity; cartoon ridicule is the whole basis of the work of Will Dyson and Low. If we are to stop the use of ridicule in controversy, it will destroy the salt of controversy.

Oral Answers to Questions — Unemployment.: Dependant's Allowance. (9 May 1929)

Mr Emanuel Shinwell: 21. asked the Minister of Labour whether his attention has been drawn to the case of G. Dyson, Fryston Road, Airedale, whose wife has been denied dependant's allowance because she has a lady boarder; whether such a decision is universally applied; and what is the minimum payment of a boarder that is held to prevent such a person receiving dependant's allowance?

Civil Services and Revenue Departments Estimates and Supplementary Estimate, 1923–24.: Post Office. (24 Jul 1923)

Mr William Robinson: ...hour of posting is 9 o'clock. There is another point which I desire the Postmaster-General to look into at once. Last February I made application for a telephone on behalf of the firm of Messrs. Dyson and Sons. Prior to that they had been making application themselves for months and Mr. Dyson, the head of the firm, told me he could get nothing done and requested me to take the matter up....
