Summer Holiday Season (12 Feb 1960)

Mr Roland Robinson: I agree with my hon. Friend the Member for Eastbourne (Sir C. Taylor) that we owe a debt of gratitude to my hon. Friend the Member for Honiton (Mr. Mathew) for using his good fortune in the Ballot for such a useful purpose as the raising of the subject which we are discussing today.

Summer Holiday Season (12 Feb 1960)

Mr Roland Robinson: If we could have what is now proposed my hon. Friend's children would be able to take their holidays with him. It would be a good influence, I am sure, for the children and it might, at the same time, be a good thing for the father to have the children around. The problem is that so little has been done. This was pointed out by the hon. Member for Devon, North (Mr. Thorpe) and the hon....

The West Indies (Secretary of State's Tour) (21 Jun 1960)

Mr Roland Robinson: I am sure that all my hon. Friends wish to associate themselves with the kindly remarks of the hon. Member for Dundee, East (Mr. G. M. Thomson) about the wife of my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State. We feel she has shown very great courage in a difficult situation. I wonder whether my right hon. Friend could tell us whether, in the course of the conversations, further discussions...

Orders of the Day — Nigeria Independence Bill (15 Jul 1960)

Mr Roland Robinson: Like all hon. Members who have spoken this morning, I rise for a dual purpose: first, to give approval to the Bill; and, secondly, to wish well to what we all believe will be a fine new independent State in Africa. The Bill is a short one, but it is worth saying, at the same time, that this short Bill represents years of preparation both in this country and in Nigeria. Successive Governments...

Orders of the Day — Queen's Speech: Debate on the Address (3 Nov 1960)

Mr Roland Robinson: The House has listened with very great interest to the speech of the right hon. Member for Bassetlaw (Mr. Bellenger), and I think that I can fairly say that we all have a great deal of sympathy with him in the position in which he has been so unfortunately placed. 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...

Orders of the Day — Queen's Speech: Debate on the Address (3 Nov 1960)

Mr Roland Robinson: There is a certain amount of confusion in South Africa, too. What happens is that Parliament sits in Cape Town, the Executive meets in Pretoria and the legal end is elsewhere. That is a very confusing situation, but it is not the Parliament that moves about. That would appear a most impracticable suggestion. Possibly one of the biggest troubles in the Federation regarding the Monckton Report...

There are few among new countries which have built up such a reservoir of good will here and throughout the free world among...

Mr Roland Robinson: While welcoming the Prime Minister's statement—[Laughter.]—as an indication of unity and of purpose in this important field, may I ask him to deal with two points for clarification?

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.
