Ollerton Colliery (Accident) (27 Nov 1961)

Mr George Deer: Mr. Deer (by Private Notice) asked the Minister of Power if he has any statement to make on the accident last Thursday at Ollerton Colliery.

Ollerton Colliery (Accident) (27 Nov 1961)

Mr George Deer: I am sure that all hon. Members will wish to associate themselves with the sentiments expressed by the Minister. May I also—again I am sure on behalf of hon. Members on both sides of the House—ask that a tribute should be paid to the magnificent work of the team which laboured so long during the rescue work?

White Fish and Herring Subsidies (14 Jul 1961)

Mr George Deer: I do not intend to comment on the remarks made by the hon. Member for St. Ives (Mr. G. R. Howard), because the part of his speech I would follow would probably get me as much out of order as it did him. I wish to associate myself with the speeches made by my hon. Friends the Members for Grimsby (Mr. Crosland) and Edinburgh, Leith (Mr. Hoy) especially in relation to the Faroese question, which...

Lowdham Grange Borstal Institution (MR. Gash) (24 Nov 1960)

Mr George Deer: Another point arises apart from the alleged urgency of the question. In view of the fact that the gentleman in question who is in trouble is a constituent of mine who has already approached me, what is the position regarding the hon. Member for Ayr (Sir T. Moore), who has jumped the queue? Had he taken steps to inquire, he would have found that the man in question was in the employ of the...

Orders of the Day — Caravan Sites and Control of Development Bill (24 Mar 1960)

Mr George Deer: I agree with a good deal of what was said by the hon. Member for the City of Chester (Mr. Temple) about standards. I welcome the Bill for, perhaps, another reason. I listened carefully to my hon. Friend the Member for Stoke-on-Trent, Central (Dr. Stross), who described the people who live in caravans as, generally, gipsies or tinkers. He did not got as far as to say that they were...

Orders of the Day — Caravan Sites and Control of Development Bill (24 Mar 1960)

Mr George Deer: I cheerfully accept the correction. We badly need legislation of this sort. Having acquired a caravan, I then had to find somewhere to put it. I was immediately faced with a number of factors for which I had not calculated. In one case it was said, "Unless you buy the caravan from us you cannot put it on our site." The question of key money, which has been delicately mentioned, arose in...

Orders of the Day — Sea Fish Industry Bill ( 4 Nov 1959)

Mr George Deer: I am privileged to take part in this debate, because I am breaking a sort of monastic silence which characterised my four years on the Front Bench below me. I think that I am entitled to take part in the debate, because I am—as I suppose—one of the few Members here who has earned his living in the industry. My father was a fisherman at Grimsby and for a time I worked on Grimsby Docks. I...

Orders of the Day — Supply ( 7 Jul 1958)

Mr George Deer: I am sure that the hon. and gallant Member for Norwood (Sir J. Smyth) will forgive me if I do not attempt to follow him in his eloquent plea for the victims of war service. Most of us will support the plea which he put forward on their behalf. I want for a few moments to draw attention to a class of industrial workers who seem to have been forgotten for a long time and whose claims I have...

Orders of the Day — Supply ( 7 Jul 1958)

Mr George Deer: That is perfectly true. A short time ago I attended the opening of one of our new, beautiful welfare homes for old people. Not only was the Minister represented, but the chairman of the National Assistance Board was there as a partner in the whole undertaking. I thought that if some of my guardian colleagues had seen that there would have been miniature earthquakes, because they would have...

Workmen's Compensation (Supplementation) Bill ( 7 Mar 1958)

Mr George Deer: I beg to move, That the Bill be now read a Second time. I want to thank hon. Member opposite for not being afraid of the word "deer" being associated with this Bill and for not deciding to keep me out a little longer. The Bill provides for the payment of allowances out of the Industrial Injuries Fund to workmen to whom the Workmen's Compensation Acts apply; and for purposes connected...

Orders of the Day — National Insurance Bill: Clause 1. — (Higher Rates, etc., of Contributions and Benefits Under Industrial Injuries Act.) (18 Nov 1957)

Mr George Deer: I wish to support the Amendment and to draw the attention of the Minister to the fact that in this case we should, as it were, be knocking at an open door. Hon. Members will recall that we attempted to deal with this matter by means of a Private Member's Bill some time ago. Later, the Minister received deputations, not only from the Trades Union Congress and the National Union of Mineworkers...

Orders of the Day — Clause 3. — (Ancillary Provisions.) (22 Jun 1956)

Mr George Deer: I want to add my personal thanks to the Minister for the way in which he has met us in the Bill and for the favourable reception which the Bill has received. It is not often that we find several people claiming paternity; in certain circumstances it is something one tries to avoid. In this case, however, I would point out that there was a Bill standing in my name and the names of some of my...

Orders of the Day — Workmen's Compensation 15 May 1956 and Benefit (Supplementation) Bill (15 May 1956)

Mr George Deer: I am exceedingly pleased to have the opportunity tonight to welcome the Bill, primarily because it succeeds an infant which I tried to bring into the world. I even offered it to the Minister and asked him to adopt it. He preferred, however, to bring in this Bill. Nevertheless, for this small mercy I give thanks, because it admits a principle and it goes some way towards what I was striving to...

Ballot for Notices of Motions: Rating and Land Drainage (11 Apr 1956)

Mr George Deer: I beg to give notice that on Friday, 20th April, I shall call attention to the inequalities and anomalies of the present system of rating and land drainage, and move a Resolution.

Ballot for Notices of Motions: Land Drainage Rating ( 8 Feb 1956)

Mr George Deer: I beg to give notice that on Friday, 24th February, I shall call attention to the dissatisfaction arising out of the inequalities of land drainage rating, and move a Resolution.

Representation of the People (Parliamentary Constituencies) (26 Jan 1955)

Mr George Deer: I should like to thank the hon. Member for Carlton (Mr. Pickthorn) for making out an excellent case for the reconsideration of this matter. I want to begin by pointing out some of the difficulties which arise here when one discusses the arithmetical position, which was the basis on which the Order was introduced by the Home Secretary. He pointed out that the city had too small an electorate...

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture: Drainage Rates (24 Jun 1954)

Mr George Deer: asked the Minister of Agriculture if he is aware of the inequalities of drainage rates; and, in view of the representations on the subject, if he will set up an inquiry with a view to the introduction of legislation to remedy this.

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture: Drainage Rates (24 Jun 1954)

Mr George Deer: Is the Minister aware that, in the present circumstances, the very poorest people are being most hardly hit? I have letters from old-age pensioners and from people living in low-situated houses which are subject to the drainage rate while those living a little higher up are getting away scot-free with nothing being done about it.

Telephone Service (14 May 1954)

Mr George Deer: I thank the mover of the Motion for giving us an opportunity to raise matters in connection with the telephone service. I sympathise with the hon. Member for Blackpool, South (Mr. R. Robinson) in his difficulties over the long list of people who want telephone service. I would remind the House that the absence of a telephone in urban areas, where your neighbour is a few yards away, becomes...

Orders of the Day — Mines and Quarries Bill (22 Jan 1954)

Mr George Deer: I am glad to have the opportunity of speaking on the Second Reading of this Bill, first, because I represent the constituency of Newark, which has eight fairly highly mechanised pits with a very good production record. I am sure that those of my constituents who are working in them will watch the passage of this Bill with considerable interest during its Committee stage, because of all the...
