Member for Leeds, East (Mr. Healey), I wish to go on record as saying that I and, I believe, all my hon. and right hon. Friends have the greatest confidence in the First Secretary in his handling of the situation in...

Orders of the Day — Supply: Central Africa (28 Feb 1963)

Mr Roland Robinson: That was not the argument I used. I was pointing out that, while Her Majesty's Government said that there was no specific pledge on this matter, it was extraordinary that the hon. Gentleman, whose policy it is to say that there should be no pledge of that kind, should seek to establish that there was one. That is all. In fairness, the hon. Gentleman should take his mind back to 1953, to the...

Orders of the Day — Supply: Central Africa (28 Feb 1963)

Mr Roland Robinson: I repeat that the great surge of African nationalism was not foreseen by those who were sitting round the table forming the Federation at the time.

Things have changed so radically that, even if any pledges were given, they would be utterly unrealistic today and impossible...

Service Pensions (25 May 1962)

Mr Roland Robinson: I am sure that the hon. and gallant Member for Kingston upon Hull, East (Commander Pursey) will not expect me to follow him in his interesting historical review of naval pensions. I found it interesting to go back with him to the Crimean War and to learn that people then thought in terms of farthings, halfpennies and pennies, but I can truthfully say that the whole thinking of the House and...

Friend say whether, as has been suggested in some quarters, any secret understanding was reached on this or any other matter with Mr. Kenyatta and the K.A.N.A. delegation which visited this country a couple of weeks ago?

Tanganyika Independence Bill (8 Nov 1961)

Mr Roland Robinson: I rise briefly to support the Bill and to join hon. Members on both sides of the House in giving our good wishes to Tanganyika, so soon to be independent. All those hon.

I think that I speak for my hon. Friends as well as for myself when I say that we have no doubt at all of his integrity, or the...
