Orders of the Day — Agricultural Development Bill.: Clause 2. — (Rate of oats subsidy payments). (18 Jul 1939)

Major Frank Heilgers: The Minister gave a very strong indication to that effect.

Orders of the Day — Agricultural Development Bill.: Clause 32. — (Payments to Agricultural Mortgage Corporation.) (18 Jul 1939)

Major Frank Heilgers: I am sorry the hon. Member for Brigg (Mr. Quibell) has gone out, because I should like to have expressed to him my congratulations on his courage in exposing the farming losses of Co-operative Societies. I, too, having seen the balance-sheet, of Co-operative Societies farms, and know that in what he said he spoke the honest truth.

Orders of the Day — Agricultural Development Bill.: Clause 32. — (Payments to Agricultural Mortgage Corporation.) (18 Jul 1939)

Major Frank Heilgers: The figure which the hon. Member gave of £ 453 loss last year was not one which would encourage people to farm to-day. I want, however, to refer to one problem which has had very little attention during the passage of this Bill, and that is the question of barley. I regret very much that no definite scheme for barley has been decided upon, and I want to ask the Minister to be careful, when...

Orders of the Day — MILK INDUSTRY (No. 2) BILL.: Clause I. — (Payments to producers and boards in respect of quality milk.) (12 Jul 1939)

Major Frank Heilgers: I feel that as I happen to be one of the accredited producers myself I should say a few words in reply to the hon. Gentleman the Member for Don Valley (Mr. T. Williams). I would point out to him that it is not only a matter of buildings, but, as the Minister said, of a very rigorous inspection of all the cows four times a year. Any cow that is seriously affected with tuberculosis is bound to...

Orders of the Day — MILK INDUSTRY (No. 2) BILL.: Clause I. — (Payments to producers and boards in respect of quality milk.) (12 Jul 1939)

Major Frank Heilgers: Whatever applies in the division which the hon. Member represents does not apply in mine. We have done our best to provide the public with clean milk in the form of graded milk, and if there are landlords who will not put their buildings in order, I can only suggest that, by reason of the fact that we have encouraged the production of graded milk, we shall in time force those bad landlords to...

Orders of the Day — MILK INDUSTRY (No. 2) BILL.: Clause I. — (Payments to producers and boards in respect of quality milk.) (12 Jul 1939)

Major Frank Heilgers: May I remind the hon. Member of the enormous fall there has been in the tuberculosis figures in this country in the course of the last 25 years?

Orders of the Day — MILK INDUSTRY (No. 2) BILL.: Clause I. — (Payments to producers and boards in respect of quality milk.) (12 Jul 1939)

Major Frank Heilgers: I am sorry to interrupt the hon. Member again, but he is not quite clear as to what I said. I said that in the last 25 years—the accredited milk has been going only for the last three or four years—there has been an enormous drop in tuberculosis, which means that the milk supply in this country, much of which the hon. Member says is unfit for human consumption, must have improved very...

Orders of the Day — MILK INDUSTRY (No. 2) BILL.: Clause 3 — (Payments to be made from Exchequer to boards in respect of milk used in manufacturing butter and cheese.) (12 Jul 1939)

Major Frank Heilgers: Am I right in assuming that this will be the position? In future, the Board are going to deal, over a six-monthly period, with a sum that will probably aggregate £50,000 in regard to the butter and cheese deficiency payments, but as they will deal with a sum of between £55,000,000 and £60,000,000 in all, the £50,000 which they are going to have over a six-monthly period will not be likely...

Orders of the Day — MILK INDUSTRY (No. 2) BILL.: Clause 4 — (Limitation of quantity of milk in respect of which Exchequer payments may be made.) (12 Jul 1939)

Major Frank Heilgers: I was a little surprised to hear the hon. Member for the Forest of Dean (Mr. Price) taking the line which he has taken. I represent a division of an Eastern county, and we should be only too glad if the Milk Marketing Board's operations were confined to liquid milk. As it is, we have to carry milk for manufacture in the West and get in consequence a lower price for our milk. Almost all the...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: New Clause. — (Reduction of duty on certain mechanically propelled vehicles used for agricultural purposes.) (28 Jun 1939)

Major Frank Heilgers: I would like to relieve the anxiety of the hon. Member for Ebbw Vale (Mr. Bevan) by assuring him that not all farmers will be placed in the position which he has described. In my own case, as far as I can make out, the result of the new Clause will be that in future I shall pay 10s. for my two tractors. Previously I had to pay nothing at all.

Oral Answers to Questions — British Army.: Food Supplies. (27 Jun 1939)

Major Frank Heilgers: Can my right hon. Friend say what percentage of the whole the figure which he has given represents?

Oral Answers to Questions — Tientsin (Situation). (23 Jun 1939)

Major Frank Heilgers: Is my right hon. Friend aware that the temper of the British people is rising and that they will be entirely behind him when he refers to intolerable indignities?

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: Clause 2. — (Increased duties and drawbacks on sugar, molasses, glucose and saccharin.) (22 Jun 1939)

Major Frank Heilgers: I want to ask only one question of the right hon. Gentleman. Are we to take it from his speech that he is in favour of the abolition of the remission of Excise Duty in favour of home grown beet sugar?

Orders of the Day — Ways and Means.: Unclaimed Dividends. (2 May 1939)

Major Frank Heilgers: I should like to appeal to the right hon. Gentleman who is going to reply for further consideration of this question. I am not entirely happy about the position so far as motor cycles in the rural areas are concerned. The hon. Member for Holderness (Mr. Braithwaite) said that the number of motor cycles licensed had fallen steadily. That is true, but I do not believe it is true as far as the...

Orders of the Day — Ways and Means.: Unclaimed Dividends. (2 May 1939)

Major Frank Heilgers: I was referring to motor cycles.

Orders of the Day — Ways and Means.: Unclaimed Dividends. (2 May 1939)

Major Frank Heilgers: If the hon. Gentleman challenges me, I would reply that what I said was that motor cycles were a necessity of employment and not necessarily a necessity of life.

Orders of the Day — Access to Mountains Bill.: Clause 7. — (Offences and enforcement.) (21 Apr 1939)

Major Frank Heilgers: I was one of those who moved the rejection of the Bill on Second Reading, and subsequently withdrew opposition on the undertaking of the promoters that they would accept all reasonable Amendments. I want to say that they have fulfilled that undertaking most loyally, and I should like to congratulate them on what they have achieved and offer them my full support.

Orders of the Day — Riding Establishments (Registration and Inspection) Bill. (17 Mar 1939)

Major Frank Heilgers: I beg to second the Motion. My first words must be to acknowledge my debt to my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Cambridge (Lieut.-Commander Tufnell) for undertaking to sponsor and present the Bill. All naval officers when they come on shore take to the horse as a matter of course, and the hon. and gallant Member has proved no exception to the rule. He has had a bucking animal to ride...

Orders of the Day — Riding Establishments (Registration and Inspection) Bill. (17 Mar 1939)

Major Frank Heilgers: The position is this. A well conducted school— the hon. and gallant Member for Cambridge has told us that quite half of the riding schools are extremely well conducted — charge a fee of 5s. or 7s. 6d. an hour, but they are faced with the competition of these new schools which charge 2s. 6d. or 3s. 6d. an hour. When you charge less than is necessary to enable you to look after the horses...

Orders of the Day — Riding Establishments (Registration and Inspection) Bill. (17 Mar 1939)

Major Frank Heilgers: This is what was said in this leading article: It is the increasing number of hirers of horses, and the consequent growth of riding schools throughout the country, in many cases owned by people who know little of horses, and merely look upon them as money-making machines, which has disturbed Sir George Cockerill and other correspondents to this Journal. The growth of riding establishments has...
