Orders of the Day — Protection of Amenity Bill (9 Mar 1962)

Mr William Deedes: I beg to move, That the Bill be now read a Second time. May I begin by saying how sorry I am that my hon. Friend the Member for Ealing, South (Mr. Batsford) is not able to move the Second Reading? It will be within the knowledge of the House that, since he was fortunate enough to be successful in the Ballot, he has been translated to other spheres which preclude such frivolities as this. I...

Tanganyika Independence Bill (8 Nov 1961)

Mr Reginald Maudling: I beg to move, That the Bill be now read a Second time. I have it in Command from the Queen to acquaint the House that Her Majesty, having been informed of the purport of the Bill, has consented to place Her prerogative and interest, so far as they are affected by the Bill, at the disposal of Parliament for the purposes of the Bill. The task of moving this Second Reading is a very happy...

Orders of the Day — Sierra Leone Independence Bill (22 Mar 1961)

Mr Iain Macleod: I beg to move, That the Bill be now read a Second time.

Civil Estimates and Estimates for Revenue Departments, 1958–59: Jordan (17 Jul 1958)

Mr Hugh Gaitskell: Our debate yesterday was marked by a seriousness, a gravity and a calmness that was worthy of the occasion and of our traditions in this House. I am sure that, again, today, discussing, as we are, the new developments, hon. Members on all sides of the House, however much they may differ from each other, will wish to preserve the same sense of dignity and seriousness that was so evident...

Orders of the Day — LIFE PEERAGES BILL [Lords] (12 Feb 1958)

Mr Enoch Powell: I believe that the House will make a mistake if it passes the Bill into law. There is no possibility of arguing that the present composition of the House of Lords can be justified either by logic or by reference to any preconceived constitutional theory. It is the result of a long, even a tortuous, process of historical evolution. Its authority rests upon the acceptance of the result, handed...

Orders of the Day — Federation of Malaya Independence Bill (12 Jul 1957)

Mr Alan Lennox-Boyd: I beg to move, That the Bill be now read a Second time. I have it, Sir, in Command from Her Majesty the Queen to acquaint the House that Her Majesty places Her prerogative and interests, so far as they are concerned with the matters in the Bill, at the disposal of Parliament. This Bill seeks to enable provision to be made for the establishment of the Federation of Malaya as an independent...

Housing Association, Dundee (Rents) (21 Jul 1955)

Mr George Thomson: I wish to plead with the Secretary of State for Scotland tonight to take action which lies within his power to protect about 300 householders in the City of Dundee who are threatened with an increase in rent in circumstances which I hope to show are such as to justify his intervention. I wish to put before the House the facts of the case as plainly and as straightforwardly as possible. These...

Orders of the Day — Cocos Islands Bill (31 Jan 1955)

Mr Henry Hopkinson: I beg to move, That the Bill be now read a Second time.

On 6th December, 1825, Captain John Clunies Ross, the master and part-owner of the "Borneo," described as...

Orders of the Day — Press Council Bill (8 May 1953)

Mr George Thomson: The hon. Member for Croydon, East (Sir H. Williams) put some excellent points on behalf of the case for a Press Council and then appeared to deny all the arguments he had put up. What concerns me about this debate is the suspicion which has been evinced from the other side that a Press Council as proposed by my hon. Friend the Member the Maldon (Mr. Driberg) in some way means Government...

Orders of the Day — Rhodesia and Nyasaland Federation Bill (6 May 1953)

Mr Oliver Lyttelton: I beg to move, "That the Bill be now read a Second time." Central African Federation is a great theme, and great themes never grow stale. However many variations there may be upon them, the themes should always seem fresh and dominant. Unfortunately, those who have to announce great themes do become stale and may well grow dull. Lord Balfour, when he was Mr. Arthur Balfour, to whose advice...

Central African Federation (4 Mar 1952)

Mr James Griffiths: I said, from unofficial sources; from parties and Press. As a result, it was urged very strongly that if this tendency was to be resisted, it was essential to ensure that there should be a closer political association of these three territories. In 1950, during discussions with the Prime Minister of Southern Rhodesia, and after consultation with others, it was decided that we should set up a...

Transitional Powers and Emergency Laws (Continuance) (14 Nov 1951)

Sir Eric Fletcher: I think this is a serious matter, and the House is entitled to know what are the views of the Home Secretary and the Government on it. We have had quite a number of illustrations during the debate on the Address of the wide discrepancy between the promises made by the Conservative Party during the Election and their actions when they assumed office. I am not going over any of that ground...

Orders of the Day — Indian Independence Bill (10 Jul 1947)

Mr Clement Attlee: I have it in Command from His Majesty to acquaint the House that he places his Prerogative and interests, so far as concerns the matters dealt with by the Bill, at the disposal of Parliament. I beg to move, "That the Bill be now read a Second time." I am afraid I shall have to ask the indulgence of the House for taking up more of its time than is my custom, but the theme is a great one....

Orders of the Day — Treaties of Peace (Italy, Roumania, Bulgaria, Hungary and Finland) Bill (28 Mar 1947)

Sir Kenneth Pickthorn: This does not look like a very great occasion and perhaps, if there were any doubt about that, the fact that I am rising at this stage will remove all doubts. Yet in a sense this clearly is a very great occasion. [HON. MEMBERS: "Hear, hear."] Here we are taking the last Parliamentary step towards the ratification of no less than five Treaties, and the Minister of State properly said that he...

Oral Answers to Questions — Death Sentences, Gold Coast (5 Mar 1947)

Mr. Creech Jones: The House will be aware that on Monday afternoon I telegraphed to the Governor of the Gold Coast, and yesterday he informed me that in view of the strong feeling which was expressed in the House, he had decided, after discussion with those Members of the Executive Council who were in Accra, to postpone the executions. In view of the strong feeling in the Gold Coast, the...

Orders of the Day — Dominion Affairs. (29 Jul 1937)

Mr Charles Ammon: I appreciate what the hon. Member means. He refers to what in a sentence might be described as the cultural inheritance of the civilized peoples, but we have to recognise that there are tribal customs and things of that kind which must play a part with the natives in their expression of nationalism and which have to be considered. The only comment I would make upon the hon. Member's...

Orders of the Day — Amendment of Law. (21 Apr 1937)

Captain William Benn: I suppose that, strictly speaking, I am not entitled to claim the indulgence which the House always shows to those who address it for the first time, but I can assure you, Captain Bourne, that I feel very fully the need for that indulgence. It is a long time since I was first elected, but the ordeal of addressing the House always seems to me to grow more formidable year by year. It is 30...

Orders of the Day — REPRESENTATION OF THE PEOPLE (No. 2) BILL. (2 Feb 1931)

Mr Robert Bourne: The hon. Member for South-West Hull (Mr. Arnott) has, like so many hon. Members who have spoken during the course of to-day's Debate, left his attitude to this Bill somewhat vague. When the Home Secretary introduced this Bill, there was a certain amount of enthusiasm for the abolition of the plural vote, there was perhaps a little more enthusiasm for the abolition of university...

Egypt. (23 Dec 1929)

Mr Austen Chamberlain: I think that we on this side of the House have some right of complaint, not of the right hon. Gentleman the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, but of the Leader of the House, in that he has re- fused any opportunity until this day of discussing any one of the subjects to which we wish to direct the attention of the House, and that we are forced to bring forward the first, and only one,...
