Friend agree that, whatever the implications of the Question and the supplementary questions, it, is the wish of the Government to secure full employment in the engineering industry, be it in Blackpool or in Coventry?

Mr Roland Robinson: In the early part of his speech, the hon. Member for Eton and Slough (Mr. Fenner Brockway) mingled with a very full measure of criticism a warm personal welcome to the Under-Secretary of State upon his appointment.

Mr Roland Robinson: I am grateful to the right hon. Gentleman for his intervention. I was careful, because of the rules of the House, not to mention any specific territory or Bill.

Mr Roland Robinson: I am sure that the House listened with great interest to the remarks on the glories of Yorkshire from my hon. Friend the Member for Skipton (Mr. Drayson). On the other hand, many of us know that the good things of the country do not stop at any county boundary and that more or less the same conditions prevail on one side of the Hodder as on the other. Indeed, by hon. Friend the Member for...

Orders of the Day — British Caribbean Federation Bill (29 Jun 1956)

Mr Roland Robinson: Eleven years ago, when the late Oliver Stanley talked about closer association in the West Indies, he gave to many people in the Colonies and here an ideal which today we are helping to turn into a reality. To take up the point made by the hon. Member for Rugby (Mr. J. Johnson), I think it is true that the Bill is warmly welcomed on both sides of the House and had the party opposite been the...
