Friend do something to expedite the return of those men who...

I wish to draw the attention of the House to the enforcement of court maintenance orders. I recently had on the Order Paper a Question to the Home Secretary

British Flyers Make Idlewild Gasp: Supplementary Reserve (8 Mar 1949)

Mrs Lucy Middleton: When repayment work was brought into the dockyards the Admiralty stated there would be production committees in connection with this work.

British Flyers Make Idlewild Gasp: Supplementary Reserve (8 Mar 1949)

Mrs Lucy Middleton: I had no intention of intervening in this Debate, but I was very disappointed that the Civil Lord made no reference to a very important point made by the hon. Member for Drake (Mr. Medland) with regard to dockyard reconstruction areas in Portsmouth and Devonport. My hon. Friend dealt with the matter from the point of view of people who have homes or businesses in these areas, and the...

British Flyers Make Idlewild Gasp: Supplementary Reserve (8 Mar 1949)

Mrs Lucy Middleton: It has reference to the Navy Estimates because, I submit, the rebuilding or compensation for this area must come out of the Admiralty Vote, as the area concerned is scheduled for dockyard development purposes.

Members in the House who wished to support what I said both before the Minister had spoken and after he had finished. But automatically when...

Orders of the Day — MILK (SPECIAL DESIGNATIONS) BILL [Lords] (21 Feb 1949)

Mrs Lucy Middleton: I am sure the House will agree with that part of the speech of the hon. Member for Rugby (Mr. W. J. Brown) in which he drew attention to the fact that this Bill must be regarded as a first step and not as a satisfactory solution of the problem with which it seeks to deal. At the same time, I think the House could not agree with him when he seemed to indicate—I hope I am not misquoting...

Orders of the Day — MILK (SPECIAL DESIGNATIONS) BILL [Lords] (21 Feb 1949)

Mrs Lucy Middleton: As I understand it, the alternatives to this Bill are twofold: either, on the one hand, to cut down milk supplies in this country so drastically by slaughtering all diseased cows that we would not be able to supply the milk needed for present day requirements, or, on the other hand, to scrap the Bill and not to go ahead with the provisions contained therein. I think that, faced with those two...
