Orders of the Day — Cotton Industry (9 Mar 1955)

Sir Harold Sutcliffe: The telegram which the hon. Member for Accrington (Mr. H. Hynd) has quoted blends very well, I think, with the atmosphere generally in this House during the debate.

Wilson), has said anything which is in anyway a...

Members on both sides of the House, and to draw the attention of the Chancellor of the...

Friend say if there is any possibility of reducing the high charge still further, because it does prevent many people from bringing their sons or other relatives home?

Sir Harold Sutcliffe: It was only yesterday that we had a debate on the work of the Transport Commission, a debate which covered a very wide field of both road and rail transport. By a coincidence, I have the Adjournment tonight, and I want to draw attention to the way in which the Road Haulage Executive are closing depots of long standing in some parts of the country, without any consideration for the effect...
