Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Dockers, London (Welfare) (14 Nov 1950)

Mr Robert Mellish: Is my right hon. Friend aware that, if we are to avoid trouble in this industry in future now is the time to remove some of the disabilities, particularly with regard to welfare? Is he also aware that the dock workers of London, at any rate, are demanding now that these industries shall be nationalised so that they can get what they could not get from private enterprise?

Orders of the Day — Tuberculosis Sanatoria (Nurses) (23 Nov 1950)

Mr Robert Mellish: Tonight I am raising a matter which I think is of great national importance and one which is above party politics. In the short time at my disposal I want to be factual and constructive. The matter I have to raise is the shortage of nurses in tuberculosis sanatoria. To be factual it is necessary to give the House some figures which. I hope, hon. Members will find interesting. I say straight...

Orders of the Day — Tuberculosis Sanatoria (Nurses) (23 Nov 1950)

Oral Answers to Questions — National Insurance: Tuberculosis (Nurses, Insurance) (28 Nov 1950)

Mr Robert Mellish: While I thank my right hon. Friend for what she has said, would she not agree that in order to get more nurses into the sanatoria we must remove the fear of infection? Will she point out, particularly to the parents, that where precautions are taken in T.B. sanatoria there is no fear of infection?

Orders of the Day — Fraudulent Mediums Bill (1 Dec 1950)

Mr Robert Mellish: I should like to say how much I appreciated the speech of the Home Secretary. It was a brilliant speech and was typical of the sort of contribution he gives to the House on occasions such as this. I welcome the fact that the Government intend to support the Bill and assist it to become law. Speaking of the Home Secretary reminds me of a report which appeared in the "Nottingham Evening...

Orders of the Day — Fraudulent Mediums Bill (1 Dec 1950)

Mr Robert Mellish: I am glad that I gave my hon. Friend the opportunity to clear up that matter. If I may say so, one can well understand why foreigners regard us British as peculiar when one considers that last night we were discussing a matter of great importance—the crisis in Korea, the possibility of war, and so on—and this morning, when we pick up our newspapers, we find that the whole of the front...

Orders of the Day — Clause 1. — Sunday Opening of Exhibitions and Gardens.) (4 Dec 1950)

Mr Robert Mellish: Will my right hon. Friend bear in mind that our men in Korea are dying at the moment and that any question of cost should not even come into it?

Cost of Living (Index) (8 Dec 1950)

Mr Robert Mellish: Having listened to most of the debate, I am now in the position of speaking when most of the "meat" has been absorbed. A number of persons whom I intended to quote have already been quoted by previous speakers. However, I wish to make one or two comments about what has already been said. The hon. Member for Runcorn (Mr. Vosper) talked about manipulation by the Government or by Government...

Cost of Living (Index) (8 Dec 1950)

Mr Robert Mellish: The difference between what Lord Beaverbrook says and what I have to say is that I am sincere. They know his past record. For Lord Beaver-brook to describe himself as the champion of the working class is farcical. We have to make sure that we have a certain minimum. The Government have to take the responsibility for that. We differ from the Conservatives because we believe in governmental...

Cost of Living (Index) (8 Dec 1950)

Mr Robert Mellish: I do not think that that is the answer. The hon. Gentleman cannot do much shopping himself. Potatoes, cabbages and other things in the shops on Thursday automatically go up in price on Friday and Saturday, because that is when the average person goes shopping and, therefore, can be better exploited

Cost of Living (Index) (8 Dec 1950)

Mr Robert Mellish: I do not think that that is a fair answer at all. The whole principle of a reduction in summer and an increase in winter is surely to get people to buy. The extra charge on commodities at week-ends which have been in the shops all the week is done deliberately. I challenge the hon. Gentleman to ask the housewives in his constituency if they are prepared to accept the reasons which he has...

Cost of Living (Index) (8 Dec 1950)

Mr Robert Mellish: If the hon. Member had come in earlier he would have heard some extraordinary statements from some of his hon. Friends. I have tried to show, in talking of the cost of living, that we have to be concerned with the person at the bottom. Earlier in the debate it was said that we had to apply cost of living in all sections of the community—the lower class, the middle class, and the higher...

Cost of Living (Index) (8 Dec 1950)

Mr Robert Mellish: I am not prepared to withdraw it. Having read the "Daily Express" for a number of years I should say that Lord Beaverbrook has no claim to regard himself as such a champion. I think that the reason why the hon. Gentleman objects to what I said is because he must be employed by Lord Beaver-brook.
