Orders of the Day — Dog Racecourse Betting (Temporary Provisions) Bill (21 Mar 1947)

Mr Robert Mellish: I do not propose to follow the argument of the hon. and gallant Member for South Blackpool (Wing-Commander Robinson). The House will be interested to learn that, for the first time in its history, the Conservative Party are interested in the entertainment of the working class. I can claim 20 years' association with the working class movement, and I have never known such interest as displayed...

Orders of the Day — Dog Racecourse Betting (Temporary Provisions) Bill (21 Mar 1947)

Mr Robert Mellish: It has not been a notable effort of the Conservative Party, and I have known the Conservative Party for over 20 years. I am critical of this Bill, and I do not think that this introduction will help to curb gambling, save fuel or prevent absenteeism. It has not been proved today that absenteeism is caused by dog racing, and no evidence has been produced to justify this Bill in any way. I...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill (19 May 1947)

Mr Robert Mellish: I welcome the speech made by the hon. Member for Cheltenham (Mr. Lipson) as a refreshing change to many of the speeches from the other side of the House, which have dealt with stocks, shares, debentures and money generally. Almost every speech which has been made since 3·30—and I have been here all the time—has been connected with stocks and shares. I know nothing about manipulations on...

I do not know whether I am in time to do anything for those people before the Chancellor's statement tonight, but I would like him to recognise that they have been badly hit by this tax, and...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill (19 May 1947)
