Orders of the Day — Textiles (Purchase Tax) (29 Apr 1952)

Mr George Tomlinson: I beg to second the Motion. It is so long since I had the privilege of addressing the House that I feel like asking for its indulgence; and yet, at the risk of offending my doctor, I felt that it behoved me as an individual, as well as a representative of the textile workers of Lancashire, to come here and say my little piece in the debate. I want to say straightaway that we are not putting...

Mr George Tomlinson: asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government (1) if he is aware that the proposal to erect a 100-foot gas holder in the centre of Farnworth contravenes every principle of town planning; and if he will, therefore, review the decision to allow it. (2) on what grounds the decision to allow the erection of the 100-foot gas holder in the centre of the borough of Farnworth was taken. (3)...

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Gas Holder, Farnworth ( 4 Mar 1952)

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Gas Holder, Farnworth ( 4 Mar 1952)

Orders of the Day — Education (24 Jul 1951)

Mr George Tomlinson: Quite a large number of questions have been asked and I will do my best to answer them. I had better begin by answering, or attempting to answer, those that were first asked by the right hon. Lady the Member for Moss Side (Miss Horsbrugh) because there has been a tendency for them to be duplicated. The same question has been asked time and again and the only way in which it will be possible...

Orders of the Day — Education (24 Jul 1951)

If we put so much in the Report about what is being done, we are criticised because there are no questions to ask; but when we leave the position so that there is an opportunity to ask questions and receive answers, that is wrong, too. My hon. Friend the Member for Wrexham (Mr. Richards) paid special attention to those few chapters about those who have been interested...
