Holiday Accommodation (23 Jun 1950)

Mr Robert Mellish: This Debate seems to me to have degenerated into a publicity campaign for the various resorts represented by some hon. Members, but I do not think that it was the intention of my hon. Friend who moved the Motion that it should be so. My hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Yarmouth (Squadron-Leader King-horn) seems to disagree, but he has not been here all the time. From the way in which...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: London Meat Distribution (Strike) (4 Jul 1950)

Mr Robert Mellish: In fairness to the dock workers, would it not be right to point out that all these men are working at the moment? The Minister will understand that not one of them could be expected to work alongside troops—[HON. MEMBERS: "Why not?"] Certainly: it is a fundamental principle. They do not wish to be involved in the dispute and do not intend to take any notice of any advice given by an outside...

Member for Belfast, West (19 Oct 1950)

Mr Robert Mellish: On a point of order. May I have your guidance, Mr. Speaker, on one point? I understand that in the House at the moment is the hon.

Post Office Staff (Minister's Speech) (20 Oct 1950)

Mr Robert Mellish: I intervene in this Debate because, like my hon. and learned Friend the Member for Northampton (Mr. Paget), I find it rather sickening that the so-called defence of working class democracy should come from Members opposite, whose past record is such that they should be the last to claim to be champions of our people. There is a large sorting office with several hundred postmen in my...
