Orders of the Day — Debate on the Address. (4 Dec 1935)

Mr John McGovern: ..., because I remember during the War being associated with Mr. MacDonald, when we had to defend him with iron pipes in order to allow him that freedom of speech against Tory hordes who tried to burn down the very hall in which he attempted to speak. We were told then that it was just the indignation of the population against a man going there and saying things that were against the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Unemployment.: Cinematograph Films. (23 Mar 1937)

Mr John Simon: I do not think it necessary to appoint a departmental committee, as I propose to refer the question of slow-burning or non-inflammable films to an advisory committee on the Cinematograph Act, 1909, which my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Scotland and I are in process of constituting.

Orders of the Day — Ministers of the Crown Bill.: Clause 1. — (Salaries payable in respect of certain, Administrative Offices of State.) (3 Jun 1937)

Mr John Simon: ...there is a question of adjusting the distribution of offices it is most desirable in the public interest that the Prime Minister should make that adjustment quite freely without causing any heart-burning as between one colleague and another. The former Prime Minister has stated that that has been a difficulty which he has experienced. That is one way in which a constitutional improvement...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill. (26 May 1938)

Mr John Simon: ...I understood him to say that I am the sole cause, or almost the sole cause, of his coming here. He is new to the House, but I am sure that he will understand me when I say that any incense that is burned on the altar of the Treasury at this time of the year will be very gratefully received. The fact that the hon. Member's was a maiden speech after a by-election indicated, I think, the...

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

...W. T. (Forfar) Donner, P. W. Lennox-Boyd, A. T. L. Shepperson, Sir E. W. Dorman-Smith, Col. Rt. Hon. Sir R. H. Liddall, W. S. Shute, Colonel Sir J. J. Dower, Lieut.-Col. A. V. G. Lindsay, K. M.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill. (29 May 1940)

Mr Henry White: ...make for victory. I heard with great satisfaction his statement that he anticipated that the expenditure of the nation would rise from the unsatisfactory figure which was forecast at the time when Lord Simon introduced his Budget. It is true that the Budget in these days is not a Budget in the ordinary acceptance of the term. It amounts to little more than a statistical review of the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Navy: Destruction of Mattresses (12 Dec 1945)

Major Hon. Simon Ramsay: asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he is aware of the waste at present being caused at R.N. demobilisation centres by the removal by burning of bed mattresses, retainable by personnel being demobilised and which, not being required by such personnel, are left behind by them at the centre.

U.N.E.S.C.O. (29 Apr 1949)

Mr Aidan Crawley: ..., there were a great many ill-founded criticisms made, partly due to the fact that there had not been much information available, but also because the noble Lords did not read the information available to them. Lord Simon made a long speech about the faulty accountancy of U.N.E.S.C.O., but ignored the fact that, although that was true in 1945, a special committee of inquiry had sat and had...

Coal (Efficient Utilisation) (7 Mar 1952)

Flight Lieut Wavell Wakefield: ...examples of the way in which fuel can be saved without any great capital expenditure are quoted. For instance, one firm found that careful use of an electric motor saved enough electricity to burn 40 100-watt lamps, while shutting off process steam promptly saved enough fuel to generate current for 210 100-watt lamps. Other examples are quoted. In one works where hundreds of people are...

Oral Answers to Questions — Coal: Space-heating (Simon Report) (24 Mar 1952)

Mr Geoffrey Lloyd: The Simon Report recommended that the main space-heating load should be carried by solid fuel rather than electricity or gas, and they therefore proposed various measures for the production of improved solid fuel burning appliances and for encouraging their use. Numerous steps have been taken to implement these proposals. At present, a further review of the minimum standards of improved...

Orders of the Day — Umseums and Art Galleries (Closing) (14 Jul 1952)

Mr Gilbert Mitchison: The speech of the hon. and learned Member for Middlesbrough, West (Mr. Simon) was a pretty half-hearted defence of this economy. There was one point at which I was a little moved—when we broke through the jungle and found the ancient stone monument sitting there, cracking up all the time. I felt inclined to say to the hon. and learned Member, if I might use a well-known Latin tag, "Si...

Orders of the Day — Iron and Steel Bill (27 Nov 1952)

Mr Arthur Palmer: ...on the evidence of a vulgar fraction of one per cent. But at that by-election at Cleveland, which is an iron and steel constituency, the question of nationalisation or de-nationalisation of iron and steel was not a matter of burning controversy. As I said in an interruption to the speech of the hon. and learned Member for Middlesbrough, West (Mr. Simon), my Conservative opponent took good...

Home-Grown Timber (Policy) (5 Dec 1952)

Mr James Hudson: ...trees? Austria has been referred to. Look at the gorgeous forests on the slopes of the mountains in Austria. Neither was there anything more beautiful than the small forest which formerly clothed the slopes of Simon's Seat on the estates of the Duke of Devonshire in Wharfedale. There was an unforgettable effect as the setting sun illumined the trees. As I have said, not far from...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: New Clause. — (AMENDMENT OF INCOME TAX ACT, 1952, s. 101, TO INCLUDE APPROVED DOMESTIC SOLID FUEL APPLIANCES.) (23 Jun 1953)

Wing Commander Edward Shackleton: ...whether these new types of apparatus are likely to lead to real fuel saving. From personal knowledge of my Agamatic I can say that they do. The evidence in the Ridley Report, and in the earlier Simon Report, makes clear that real saving can be obtained. It is worth noting that the 40,000,000 tons of solid fuel burned in houses are responsible for half of the smoke pollution. It is most...

Monopolies and Restrictive Practices Commission Bill (10 Jul 1953)

Mr Jocelyn Simon: ...makes it plain that cast-iron rainwater goods were selected only because they were typical of a larger sphere of goods produced for housebuilding, attention to which had been drawn by the Simon Report. There were many conditions in the industry investigated which were found to be unsatisfactory and operating against the public interest. That suggests that in the rest of the industry there...

Scottish Affairs (14 Jul 1953)

Mr David Pryde: being in Bilston Glen. That name surely originated out of the spirals of tobacco smoke in a back room of the National Coal Board's offices on a summer afternoon, because there certainly is a burn called Bilston Burn which wimples through a glen, but it is not Bilston Glen, but Dryden, the seat of General Sir Simon Lockhart of the Lee. We have little in the Report about the East of...

Telegraph Bill: Clause 1. — (Charges for Telegrams.) (14 Apr 1954)

London Traffic (Use of Canals) (27 Apr 1954)

Mr Jocelyn Simon: ...; Vol. 526, c. 1409–10.] In that debate it was brought out that vehicles travelling through London spend only two-thirds of their time doing effective work. For the remaining one-third they are stationary, but still burning fuel. The average speed of London transport vehicles on all their scheduled routes is under 11 miles an hour, and one can travel more quickly on a bicycle in the...
