Mr Winston Churchill: I am very grateful to you all.
Mr Winston Churchill: May I say that I most gratefully and eagerly accept both forms of compliment.
Mr Winston Churchill: Sir Winston Churchill (Woodford) indicated assent.
Mr Winston Churchill: Her Majesty's Government are prepared to examine any proposals which seem likely to prevent an extension of hostilities in the area of the Formosa Straits. During his recent journey my right hon. Friend the Foreign Secretary discussed these problems with Mr. Secretary Dulles and the Prime Ministers of India and Burma. As he told the House on 8th March, he came reluctantly to the conclusion,...
Mr Winston Churchill: No one has worked harder, indeed I doubt if anyone in the whole world has worked as hard as my right hon. Friend the Foreign Secretary, to steer this matter out of the danger area.
Mr Winston Churchill: I am sure all these facts are very present in the minds of those on both sides of the Atlantic who are so earnestly and anxiously considering the day-to-day progress of this very embarrassing and serious dispute.
Mr Winston Churchill: I do not see how that arises out of the Question, the supplementary questions or the answers that I have given. It shows what is causing the hon. Member most anxiety.
Mr Winston Churchill: No, Sir. It is not the policy of Her Majesty's Government to establish a parliamentary assembly as part of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation machinery. We are not alone in this. Our view is shared by a number of other N.A.T.O. Governments. Her Majesty's Government, however, welcome parliamentary interest in and support for N.A.T.O. through unofficial meetings of Members of Parliament...
Mr Winston Churchill: If it were a freely chosen representative assembly it might be just as likely to breed misunderstanding as understanding.
Mr Winston Churchill: Certainly. I think the closer the contacts between the United States and Europe the better.
Mr Winston Churchill: The Government have already invited the Medical Research Council to review the existing scientific information on the medical aspects of nuclear radiation and to prepare a report. The report will cover the medical aspects of nuclear radiation, including the genetic aspects. It will review existing scientific information and set forth the most up to date information and the latest research...
Mr Winston Churchill: I think I can say straight away that among other material which we shall place before the Council will be a copy of the HANSARD containing a Question of this character.
Mr Winston Churchill: The deputation from the Cotton Board developed their case fully and fairly, and I am much obliged to them for doing so. The situation facing the cotton industry, both from the fall in export demand and from the rise in certain imports, is one that demands and is receiving the earnest and urgent consideration of Her Majesty's Government. As the Cotton Board themselves recognise, weighty and...
Mr Winston Churchill: All these matters are, and will be, taken into consideration.
Mr Winston Churchill: I hope that it will be made before Easter. As to its adequacy, everyone will judge for himself.
Mr Winston Churchill: The cotton question is a very intricate one. Personally, I have very keen feelings about it, from my early youth. I think it would be a pity if it were to become a purely party issue between both sides; because each can find fault with the other and each can bid against the other in promises which might not be in proper relation to the broad general interests of the country.
Mr Winston Churchill: Constructive suggestions of that character will certainly be borne in mind by the Government.
Mr Winston Churchill: Things certainly seem to have taken a friendly turn lately. I have never departed in any way from my view that a top-level meeting without agenda might be a hopeful manner of approaching the solution to these world problems. It might be helpful to have the wish and the will expressed from the summit and the agreements of heads of Governments recorded in broad and simple terms if any can be...
Mr Winston Churchill: The future is veiled in obscurity, and I should not like to plunge too deeply into it this afternoon.
Mr Winston Churchill: I beg to move, That this House will, Tomorrow, resolve itself into a Committee to consider an humble Address to Her Majesty praying that Her Majesty will give directions that a Monument be erected at the public charge to the memory of the late Right Honourable the Earl Lloyd-George of Dwyfor, 0.M., with an inscription expressive of the high sense entertained by this House of the eminent...
