Middle East (13 Apr 1970)

Mr Michael Maitland Stewart: ...that their view is, "If these Governments will not meet us, what faith can we place in their guarantees?" I beg my hon. and learned Friend to realise that I understand this, but I ask him also to consider the enormous stakes of peace and war and of human life. Even if he feels that he has an enormously logical, convincing point, I must beg him to think again and see whether there is not,...

Middle East (6 Jul 1967)

Sir Alec Douglas-Home: ...has made a speech so widely acclaimed in Europe in the last few days that perhaps he will achieve a double tonight. We hope so. However, there has been a general feeling in the House that the course of the recent momentous events in the Middle East should be reviewed by hon. Members. They have affected British interests in many ways—commercial, financial and political—and they pose...

Central Africa (8 May 1962)

Mr John Stonehouse: The right hon. Member for Guildford (Sir R. Nugent) has made a sincere speech. Although he made many points with which I could not agree, I recognise that he has moved a considerable way in the last few years. I particularly appreciated his reference to Dr. Banda and his confirmation that Dr. Banda and his colleagues are doing a good job in Nyasaland. This testimony should be put against the...

Refugees (8 Mar 1957)

Mr Maurice Orbach: I beg to move, That this House calls upon Her Majesty's Government to remove the restrictions on the immigration and length of stay in the United Kingdom of foreign persons persecuted on account of their race, creed or political beliefs; that, in accordance with the spontaneous generosity of the British people towards Hungarian refugees, it invites Her Majesty's Government to develop a more...

Middle East (5 Dec 1956)

Mr Jo Grimond: I do not think that anyone in the House doubts the courage or the consistency of the right hon. and gallant Member for Leicester, South-East (Captain Waterhouse), but I must confess I was a little disappointed that he did not tell us in more detail what he and his hon. Friends really want the Government to do in this matter. The right hon. and gallant Gentleman developed a case against the...

Bill Presented: Middle East (7 Mar 1956)

Mr Alfred Robens: The Government have had an uneasy passage during these last few weeks. At home their economic policy has collapsed about their ears, causing grave anxiety to the people of this country. Abroad, their lack of policy over foreign affairs has necessitated this debate which has meant the changing of our business for the week, and therefore we regard the situation as serious for the Prime...

Middle East (12 Dec 1955)

Mr Alfred Robens: ...that, somehow or other, we have to get the Arabs and Jews together to settle their existing difficulties. I do not think that appraising the relative military strength of both sides is the sort of contribution which is helpful. It cannot be denied that the injection of Russian arms into the Middle East has changed the whole balance considerably. That balance was being carefully preserved,...

Defence Policy (4 Mar 1946)

Mr Niall Macpherson: The Prime Minister did a great service in emphasising the need for maintaining our forces in efficiency. Just now we are all receiving letters from our constituents urging a more rapid demobilisation and had it been possible to get a more rapid demobilisation and maintain efficiency at the same time, I think all Members of this House would have demanded it. I hope that the Government will use...

Foreign Affairs (23 Nov 1945)

Mr Ernest Bevin: It is between the two opinions that the decision would be, but those two opinions ought not to be influenced by economic disaster. When the head of a State is to be elected, a country ought to be in such a tranquil state, and as prosperous as possible, that judgment, and not prejudice and starvation, should be the guide. I have by this decision tried to get Greece on to a basis where the...

Orders of the Day — United Nations Charter (23 Aug 1945)

Mr Konni Zilliacus: ...Secretariat. I entered the service of the League because I believed then as I believe now that world government is the only alternative to world war, and I believed then and I believe now that this country has a very special part to play in the great adventure of leading mankind into the paths of peace. Some of the founders of the Covenant looked upon the League as the first step towards...

Supplementary Vote of Credit, 1945: Overseas Forces (Conditions and Welfare) (8 Jun 1945)

Mr David Gammans: ...as demobilisation proceeds it will be possible to extend the classes under that head to include not only the building trade and miners, but eventually small shopkeepers. There is no section of the community who have suffered greater economic casualties than the one-man businesses, and there is nobody to look after their interests except Members of Parliament. I want specifically to raise...

Requisitioned Land and War Works Bill: Syria and Lebanon (Situation) (30 May 1945)

Mr Richard Stokes: I could not possibly endorse the views expressed by the last speaker in his dissertation on power politics, in which he talked about the division of power between ourselves and the French. I want, however, to say some words in support of the hon. and gallant Gentleman the Member for Carlisle (Sir E. Spears), who brought up this subject. It is a most deplorable story that he has had to tell...

Orders of the Day — Supply: Navy Supplementary Estimate, 1942. (17 Mar 1943)

Hon. William Waldorf Astor: Mr. Speaker, I rise with a certain amount of confidence as I, unlike the previous speakers, really want to speak about Vote A, on the question of naval personnel, but before I start on that I would like to repudiate, disavow, and dissociate myself from, the personal attack on the First Lord for going round and visiting the Fleet. Nothing pleases the officers and men of the ports and fleets...

Central Direction of the War. (1 Jul 1942)

Mr Robert Boothby: I was against them. My right hon. Friend the Member for Devonport (Mr. Hore-Belisha) has complained frequently of the lack of air support for the Army, But air support for the Army does depend largely upon dive bombing, and we have it upon the authority of the Secretary of State for Air that orders for dive bombers were not placed until after the present Government came into power. In these...

Orders of the Day — War Situation.: Motion of Confidence in His Majesty's Government. (29 Jan 1942)

Mr Philip Noel-Baker: The Prime Minister, for reasons which he explained and which for my part I think conclusive, has asked the House of Commons for a Vote of Confidence. The Motion, as the Lord Privy Seal said yesterday, does not ask us to declare that the Government is perfect, or that there is universal satisfaction with all aspects of its policy, or with all the members of its personnel. All Governments make...

Orders of the Day — Defence Loans. (21 Feb 1939)

Mr Clement Attlee: The Prime Minister started his speech in a mood of what I can only call the most unwarrantable complacency. He seemed to think that there was in this country and in this House a general satisfaction with the Government, as to its policy and the situation in which it has placed this country, as to its finance, and as to its defence proposals. I think he is entirely mistaken, and I am quite...

Orders of the Day — Racial, Religious and Political Minorities. (21 Nov 1938)

Mr Philip Noel-Baker: I beg to move, That this House notes with profound concern the deplorable treatment suffered by certain racial, religious and political minorities in Europe, and, in view of the growing gravity of the refugee problem would welcome an immediate concerted effort amongst the nations, including the United States of America, to secure a common policy. I hope that this is a Motion with which the...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Colonial Office. (19 Jun 1936)

Mr William Gallacher: I am satisfied you are not ashamed, because you have no concern for anything but profits, and loyalty and religion mean nothing to you. You sent Lawrence to Arabia and instructed him to become a Mohammedan. It was not a hard job, but it was very pathetic, he has told us, and he felt that he was debasing himself. I advise hon. Members to read what Lawrence says about it. Lawrence had to become...

Government of Ceylon. (21 Feb 1934)

Mr Henry Croft: I beg to move: That this House, in view of the results of democratic government in Ceylon, is of opinion that a Parliamentary commission should be appointed to proceed to that island to report upon the working of the Constitution. The attention of Parliament and the electorate as a whole for very many years has rarely been called to the great questions affecting the fortunes of the Crown...

Orders of the Day — Anglo-Iraq Treaty. (18 Feb 1926)

Mr Richard Wallhead: ...my remarks by referring to the speech of the hon. Member for Penryn and Falmouth (Mr. Pilcher), who spoke of a change in the point of view of the successors of the Young Turks with regard to this country. The hon. Member seemed to disapprove of that change. Surely he must have been blind to the politics of the last 10 years, and to the fact that we gratuitously undertook to transfer...
