Workers' Unlimited Travel Passes (Withdrawal) (13 Oct 1943)

Mr Joshua Ritson: We have heard a good deal about seething trouble over the mines. There is also plenty of trouble seething because the bus companies are receiving these additional profits through the action of the Ministry of Transport.

Lady who said that many of...

Amendment of Law. (14 Apr 1943)

Mr Joshua Ritson: I am sure that the hon. Member for Antrim (Mr. Campbell) is one of the few Members who has promised to be short and has fulfilled his promise.

Mr Joshua Ritson: I congratulate the Home Secretary upon the step he has taken. It is a very forward step as far as the police are concerned. I may inform the hon.

When I was brought up I was rather anxious to see things...

We went round trying doors, and when I turned round he was searching a fellow's pockets. I said, "What are you doing?" and he replied, "I thought he might have some good cigars." There was a man who was corrupt from...
