Alert me about debates like this

Miss Ward:

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of War Transport what action he proposes to take to implement the recommendation by his Northern Regional representative that a queue barrier should be erected to facilitate the travelling of shipyard workers at Wallsend-on-Tyne?

The Corporation have not seen their way to erect this queue barrier. The Regional Transport Commissioner has referred the matter to the Regional Board of the Ministry of Production, who will discuss it at their next meeting on 15th June.

Miss Ward:

In view of the waste of time which has been going on for something like six months, is the hon. Member aware that if I were a man and not a Member of this honourable House, my language would be unrepeatable?
