Land Nationalisation. (14 Dec 1938)

Major Frank Heilgers: I did interrupt the hon. Member for Ipswich (Mr. Stokes) on that point. He said that the subsidies were £52,000,000. The hon. Member for Doncaster (Mr. J. Morgan) has stated that the subsidies are £34,000,000. Let me quote "Your Britain," which I think the hon. Member will take as a good authority: At present the Government pays £14,500,000 of Britain's money in subsidies which are...

Orders of the Day — Access to Mountains Bill. (2 Dec 1938)

Major Frank Heilgers: I beg to move, to leave out the word "now," and at the end of the Question, to add the words "upon this day six months." We have listened to two very excellent speeches from the hon. Member who moved the Second Reading of the Bill and the hon. and gallant Member who seconded it. One was grave and the other was gay. There was very little in either speech with whcih I could find myself in...

Orders of the Day — Access to Mountains Bill. (2 Dec 1938)

Major Frank Heilgers: I meant unregulated. I have a certain amount of sympathy with what Mr. Mason said in those days. In the guise of helping the hiker, an object which goes to all our hearts, the Bill really aims at the nationalisation of property. There is more behind it than one imagines, because I notice that the names of three Front Bench Members of the Socialist party are on this private Members Bill. The...

Orders of the Day — Access to Mountains Bill. (2 Dec 1938)

Major Frank Heilgers: One thing that makes a really good sheep run is a grouse run. A moor which has not had grouse on it and is then turned into a grouse moor produces much more feed for sheep.

Orders of the Day — Access to Mountains Bill. (2 Dec 1938)

Major Frank Heilgers: My hon. Friend does me an injustice. I did say that there was no demand for the Bill in Bury St. Edmonds, and that is quite true; but I also mentioned that I was not conversant with the West Riding and was quite ready to believe that there was a demand for the Bill there.

Orders of the Day — Access to Mountains Bill. (2 Dec 1938)

Major Frank Heilgers: I would remind my hon. Friend that a poacher turned gamekeeper makes the best game-keeper of all.

Orders of the Day — Access to Mountains Bill. (2 Dec 1938)

Major Frank Heilgers: In view of the assurances of the promoters of the Bill that their sole purpose is to promote national fitness and their promise of reasonable Amendments on the Committee stage, I beg to ask leave to withdraw the Amendment.

Orders of the Day — Criminal Justice Bill. (29 Nov 1938)

Major Frank Heilgers: May I say to the Home Secretary that in view of the almost unanimously favourable reception of this Bill I feel certain that when history comes to be written his name will go down with the name of his ancestor Elizabeth Fry among the great prison reformers. I have comparatively little claim to speak upon such a Bill as this, but I am one of those rural justices of the peace on whom such scorn...

Orders of the Day — Criminal Justice Bill. (29 Nov 1938)

Major Frank Heilgers: Shameful it may be, but, at any rate it gave me a rather better opportunity of judging the progress that had been made. I went yesterday to a big London prison and there I saw a large number of youthful offenders of two categories, the failures from Borstal and the special class of 21 to 26 years of age. One thing I did notice was the enormous improvement in the general conditions prisoners...

Oral Answers to Questions — Unemployment.: Air-Raid Precautions. (17 Nov 1938)

Major Frank Heilgers: Does not my right hon. Friend consider that a disproportionate number of these light trailer pumps have been issued to the big towns and will he, in future, expedite their delivery to smaller towns where people are keen on fire-brigade organisation?

Spain. (29 Jul 1938)

Major Frank Heilgers: Would the Noble Lady say what is the date of that?

Spain. (29 Jul 1938)

Major Frank Heilgers: May I say to the hon. Lady the Member for the English Universities (Miss Rathbone), who talks about the Loch Ness monster, that I personally think that it is not a question of the Loch Ness monster; this illegal traffic in human lives is monstrous. I recognise the sincerity of the noble Lady who raised this question and of the hon. Lady who followed her and of all the Members concerned in...

Spain. (29 Jul 1938)

Major Frank Heilgers: That is right. The next letter is that of the 11th June addressed to J. Smith by the Communist party of Great Britain: Central Committee, 16, King Street, Covent Garden. Dear Comrade, In reply to your letter of 7th June, we regret to say it is not possible for us to help you in the way you suggest for reasons which we are sure you will appreciate. There are a number of questions involved...

Spain. (29 Jul 1938)

Major Frank Heilgers: It is signed, "Yours fraternally, M. A. Johnson."

Spain. (29 Jul 1938)

Major Frank Heilgers: As I said before, I do not seek to justify the action which Mr. Coop took, but I would remind the hon. Lady that parents who have their sons filched away from them without warning arid without their knowledge, may have some possible excuse. Mr. Coop writes to me: It is very obvious from what evidence there is, as to who is responsible for this horrid business, and I would ask you to please do...

Personal Explanations. (28 Jul 1938)

Major Frank Heilgers: The hon. Lady has accused me of making a personal attack upon her. I did not mean my speech yesterday to be a personal attack upon her. Rather, I used her actions, of which I spoke, as an illustration of how woefully inadequate the Foreign Enlistment Act was. I desire to offer to the hon. Lady a frank apology as regards one remark in my speech. At the bottom of column 3200 in the OFFICIAL...

Orders of the Day — Home Office Administration. (27 Jul 1938)

Major Frank Heilgers: One always listens to the hon. Member with interest, as he speaks with sincerity of the things which have come within his experience. On one occasion I changed my vote after I had listened to him speaking, and not many speakers in this House have caused me to do that. I agree with what he said about the undesirability of boys and girls being sent by benches of magistrates to approved schools...

Orders of the Day — Home Office Administration. (27 Jul 1938)

Major Frank Heilgers: I have warned all those who wrote back and asked me. The hon. Member for the English Universities (Miss Rathbone) and others have been informed. The hon. Member for Jarrow has not been informed. I wrote and told her I should be raising a matter concerning her.

Orders of the Day — Home Office Administration. (27 Jul 1938)

Major Frank Heilgers: The answer to that is that the other Members have made inquiries of me, and the hon. Member for Jarrow could quite easily have done the same. I am sorry; I agree that it might have been more desirable. At any rate, I did inform the hon. Lady and give her a chance. This constituent of mine wrote to the hon. Member for Jarrow and asked her when and where he could enlist for Spain and he...

Orders of the Day — Home Office Administration. (27 Jul 1938)

Major Frank Heilgers: I mentioned at the beginning of my speech when the hon. Lady was not in the House that I was dealing with the question of the inadequacy of the Act to control enlistment of people for Spain. As regards what was said by my Noble Friend, that this is a matter for the Attorney-General, I agree, but there is no reason why this matter should not be raised in the House. I was referring to the...
