Oral Answers to Questions — Cruelty to Wild Animals (Committee) (2 Jun 1949)

Mr Robert Mellish: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that Mr. Brandon, apart from being an organiser of the Transport and General Workers' Union, is also a farmer?

Business of the House (2 Jun 1949)

Mr Robert Mellish: With regard to the Oaksey Report, is my right hon. Friend aware that there is some concern on these benches regarding the recommendations, particularly concerning policemen who are about to retire; and is it not possible for my right hon. Friend to allow time for discussion on the remainder of the Report, which evidently is to be implemented by the Government, particularly as the police do...

Oral Answers to Questions — Police Force: Oaksey Report (Findings) (23 Jun 1949)

Mr Robert Mellish: Is my hon. Friend aware that one of the anomalies arising was the question of pensions of those about to retire, and that what he has said on behalf of his right hon. Friend will cause a great deal of satisfaction among those concerned?

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: New Clause. — (Footballers' Benefits.) (27 Jun 1949)

Mr Robert Mellish: I wish to join those who have asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer to look at this again. There has been a recent case of this anomaly in my constituency where there is the Millwall Football Club. It may not be so famous from the point of view of its success as some of the others, but it has a very long record, being one of the oldest clubs in the country. It had a man who served it for over...

Police Pensions Regulations (29 Jun 1949)

Mr Robert Mellish: I am sorry that the hon. Gentleman for North Croydon (Mr. Frederic Harris) is so tired; but he really cannot blame us for that. It was his own party which did all the talking last night and throughout the early hours of yesterday morning. But I say quite sincerely that I appreciated the tone of his speech, which was without party prejudices, and it is a pity that his right hon. Friend who...

Police Pensions Regulations (29 Jun 1949)

Mr Robert Mellish: Surely, the whole point is that when these men joined up, they were told it was 25 years, then it was increased to 30 years, and now they are told it is 33 years. Surely that is not right.

Oral Answers to Questions — Strike, London Docks (4 Jul 1949)

Mr Robert Mellish: On a point of Order. Is it in Order for an hon. Member to call another hon. Member a "special agent," when the hon. Member to whom he refers is only trying to do his duty to the country and the dockers he represents?

Oral Answers to Questions — Strike, London Docks (4 Jul 1949)

Mr Robert Mellish: On a point of Order, Mr. Speaker. As one of the Members of Parliament involved, may I say that this matter has been referred to my right hon. Friend the Home Secretary, who is dealing with this matter, and not to my right hon. Friend the Minister of Labour.

Strike, London Docks (6 Jul 1949)

Mr Robert Mellish: Would my right hon. Friend not agree that it is a shocking thing that the Communist Party, of all parties, should ask that troops should unload disputed ships?

Orders of the Day — Analgesia in Childbirth Bill: Clause 5. — (Interpretation.) (8 Jul 1949)

Mr Robert Mellish: What about Northern Ireland?

Mr Robert Mellish: Northern Ireland is referred to in Clause 7.

Orders of the Day — Strike, London Docks (Emergency Powers) (8 Jul 1949)

Mr Robert Mellish: As one who claims to know a little more about the dock situation than the hon. Member who has just spoken, and while I appreciate the point of view of the men about this being a lockout and not a strike and fully understand it, may I point out to my right hon. Friend that it has already been explained to the men that when one traces this back to the beginning, it is the two Canadian ships in...

Orders of the Day — Strike, London Docks (Emergency Powers) (8 Jul 1949)

Mr Robert Mellish: Therefore, is the Home Secretary not aware that the men today are arguing that this is a lockout, but in fact they ought to understand that there will be neither strike nor lockout if these two Canadian ships are worked? Again, I ask, as I asked in the House the other day, is it not monstrous that suggestions should come from the Communist Party in this House, and again from my hon. Friend...

Orders of the Day — Strike, London Docks (Emergency Powers) (8 Jul 1949)

Mr Robert Mellish: Would the hon. Member not agree that if it was proved that the so-called "black" ships were, in fact, not "black," the men would resume work?

Orders of the Day — Dental Clinic, Rotherhithe (Closing) (8 Jul 1949)

Mr Robert Mellish: I wish to raise the question of the closing of a dental clinic in my constituency because, although it may appear at first sight not to be a very important matter, I would bring to the notice of my hon. Friend the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Health the fact that it is not an isolated case. What is happening there, unfortunately, has had to happen in many other places throughout...

Orders of the Day — Dental Clinic, Rotherhithe (Closing) (8 Jul 1949)

Mr Robert Mellish: I think it was about £980—I cannot be sure—when the scheme was then taken over, and I think that £1,250 would, if necessary, have been paid if the dental surgeon who resigned had remained. Following the introduction of the general dental service on 5th July, 1948, with remuneration by scale fee methods and the removal of the economic barrier between patient and dentist, the recruitment...

Orders of the Day — Dental Clinic, Rotherhithe (Closing) (8 Jul 1949)

Mr Robert Mellish: As I understand it now, the dentist in private practice gets paid not on the quality of his work but on how much he can do. There seems to be no limit to the amount of money he can get. Is that matter being looked into? Naturally, many dentists are working at full capacity in order to deal with as many people as possible, so that their wages can go up. That is one of the reasons why people...

Orders of the Day — Dental Clinic, Rotherhithe (Closing) (8 Jul 1949)

Mr Robert Mellish: May I have an assurance that the Ministry and the L.C.C. are doing all they can to re-open the Rotherhithe Clinic with a full-time dental service?

Orders of the Day — Dental Clinic, Rotherhithe (Closing) (8 Jul 1949)

Mr Robert Mellish: I hope the point I made has not been misunderstood. I am not blaming the Minister. The point of view I take is that it is the private dentists themselves who have deserted the schools and the local health services in order to earn more money outside. I say, quite frankly, that I should have thought the rate of pay of £1,250 a year would have been enough to get any man, with any sense of...

Orders of the Day — Strike, London Docks: Emergency Powers (Proclamation) (13 Jul 1949)

Mr Robert Mellish: Is the right hon. and learned Gentleman aware that the stevedores' union is a very small organisation with only about 5,000 members?
