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

Major Frank Heilgers: I have no idea. They were riding schools. In these cases, fines of £1, £2, £5 and so on for definite cruelty to horses are completely inadequate to deal with the situation which exists at present.

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

Major Frank Heilgers: If my hon. Friend will look at Clause 4, Sub-section (2), he will see that it is possible for a riding school owner to be disqualified. That is a penalty which does not exist at present. As my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Cambridge has said, we decided to send an investigator to some of the riding schools. We did not send a person like the Police witness who was quoted in the Press...

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

Major Frank Heilgers: It would be possible, but one cannot get into the riding schools to see these things. That is the trouble. I will quote another case: This is a public house, and there are about eight ponies kept in the stable yard for the benefit of anyone who wants to ride. The charges are 6d. for a short ride, going up to half-a-crown an hour. There is a fairly respectable groom in charge,, but he has...

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

Major Frank Heilgers: We are willing to consider whether an exception might be made as regards horses let out for hacking in the case of the genuine bona fide farmer, but we cannot find any suitable wording to meet the case. I gather from my hon. Friend the Member for Thirsk and Malton (Mr. Turton) that they have wonderful horses in Yorkshire which can go to the plough one day and hunt another day. I congratulate...

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

Major Frank Heilgers: I am perfectly willing to accept anything that comes from Thirsk and Malton as being of very good quality, but I would make this point about the question of hacking. Supposing that we did make an exception of the farmer with not more than three horses of his own breeding let out for hacking, we should be accused of putting the riding schools in a difficult position. They would be very jealous...

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

Major Frank Heilgers: The Bill will not interfere with the farmer in any way whatever, except that he will have to pay a licence fee if he has more than three horses that he lets out on hire for hunting. His stables will then be open to inspection in the same way as those of other riding schools, but the Bill does not affect his farming business in any way.

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

Major Frank Heilgers: The penalties under existing legislation are higher than those in the Bill.

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

Major Frank Heilgers: Is not that very similar to the present position, and is it not a fact that every society which is concerned with animal welfare has found it difficult to achieve any effective prosecution under the present law?

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

Major Frank Heilgers: When I was asked originally, I found it difficult; and therefore, for the purposes of this Bill, I sent an inspector to visit 150 schools in order to provide evidence. In a dossier here there is ample and sufficient evidence to show that all is not well with riding schools.

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

Major Frank Heilgers: For hire as hacks.

Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Air Force.: Flights, Built-Up Areas. (15 Mar 1939)

Major Frank Heilgers: Is the Minister aware that a young pupil of civil aircraft made a mistake on his first solo flight last Saturday and crashed upon a house, and would my right hon. Friend further consider prohibiting all completely inexperienced pilots from flying in the vicinity of built-up areas?

Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Air Force.: Civilian Labour. (1 Mar 1939)

Major Frank Heilgers: Can the Minister do something to prevent these contractors employing Irish labour? Is he aware that these Irish workmen not only prevent local workmen from obtaining employment, but that afterwards they go into agriculture and undercut the piece rates?

Oral Answers to Questions — Training Camps. (1 Mar 1939)

Major Frank Heilgers: May I ask for an assurance that no. Irish labour will be employed?

Orders of the Day — Defence Loans. (20 Feb 1939)

Major Frank Heilgers: I am not a financial expert, and I do not propose to follow the hon. Member into the question of costs. The Chancellor has given us an astonishing decision to-day, and I feel that it will do much to restore the confidence which is so badly needed to bring the spring revival of trade. It is the best news which the unemployed have had for a long time. My purpose to-night is not to speak on...

Demonstrations, Westminster. (13 Feb 1939)

Major Frank Heilgers: The hon. Member for Nelson and Colne (Mr. Silverman) said that the statements were not necessarily credible.

Demonstrations, Westminster. (13 Feb 1939)

Major Frank Heilgers: If that is the case, I am sorry to find that the hon. Member read out a letter in which it was stated that the police behaved like Cossacks. That is a slur upon a very excellent body of men. I would point out that at just about the same time that this demonstration was being held, there was another demonstration in London—the Suffolk farmers' and farmworkers' demonstration. The promoters...

Demonstrations, Westminster. (13 Feb 1939)

Major Frank Heilgers: There was no demonstration in Parliament Square because the Suffolk fanners and farmworkers were advised that they should not go to Parliament Square, and they took that advice. They were told that if they formed on Tower Hill they would be allowed to march as far as the Victoria Embankment. I saw that march. They marched to Victoria Embankment where, on the advice of the police, as they got...

Demonstrations, Westminster. (13 Feb 1939)

Major Frank Heilgers: Whatever the reasons for the demonstrations, or whether they were changed at the last moment, I am certain from my knowledge of Suffolk fanners and farmworkers that they would have behaved very much better than these people.

Demonstrations, Westminster. (13 Feb 1939)

Major Frank Heilgers: I also happened to be there to listen to the hon. and learned Gentleman on that occasion. My conclusion may be wrong, but I think that in his speech he did his best to incite them to violent action.

Land Nationalisation. (14 Dec 1938)

Major Frank Heilgers: May I ask the hon. Member why he quotes the sugar-beet subsidy at £6,000,000 when it was less than £2,000,000 last year?
