Orders of the Day — Road Traffic Bill.: Third Schedule. — (Consequential and minor Amendments.) (29 Jun 1934)

Mr William McKeag: I beg to move, in page 32, line 29, column 2, at the end, to insert: In sub-section (2) a period of three years shall be substituted for one year. The object of this Amendment is to increase the period of validity of road service licences to three years. At present the position is most unsatisfactory in that many omnibus operators, who pay thousands of pounds for road service licences, the...

Orders of the Day — Road Traffic Bill.: Third Schedule. — (Consequential and minor Amendments.) (29 Jun 1934)

Mr William McKeag: Does the hon. and gallant Gentleman think that the time will be ripe by 1st January, 1936?

Orders of the Day — Road Traffic Bill.: Third Schedule. — (Consequential and minor Amendments.) (29 Jun 1934)

Mr William McKeag: A few moments ago an appeal was made that at some early date the Ministry of Transport should endeavour to codify the law relating to road traffic in its various forms, and I would like to endorse that request. I speak somewhat feelingly on this subject. As one who is often called upon to advise on these matters, I realise only too well the difficulties that are created by the plethora of...

Orders of the Day — Road Traffic Bill.: New Clause. — (Provision for charge for careless driving on hearing of charge for reckless or dangerous driving.) (28 Jun 1934)

Mr William McKeag: At one stage I thought I should find myself in agreement with the hon. and learned Member for Norwood (Sir W. Greaves-Lord) when he suggested that the position might possibly be met by the court being given power to convict on the lesser offence. I agree with that course of action, but I object, as others have already objected, to this new departure in the procedure of a court of summary...

Orders of the Day — Road Traffic Bill.: New Clause. — (Provision for charge for careless driving on hearing of charge for reckless or dangerous driving.) (28 Jun 1934)

Mr William McKeag: May I ask the learned Solicitor-General if there is a record of a single case in which a man acquitted of the more serious charge of dangerous driving has been subsequently charged with the lesser offence of driving carelessly?

Orders of the Day — Road Traffic Bill.: New Clause. — (Amendment of s. 72 of the principal Act.) (28 Jun 1934)

Mr William McKeag: I beg to move, "That the Clause be read a Second time." This deals with that part of Section 72 of the Road Traffic Act, 1930, which gives power to railway companies to lodge objections to applications by omnibus operators for road service licences, and who appear in the traffic commissioners' courts in support of those objections. I will read those words which constitute the part of the...

Orders of the Day — Road Traffic Bill.: Clause5. — (Tests of competence to drive of new applicants for licences and of offenders ordered to be tested.) (28 Jun 1934)

Mr William McKeag: I beg to move, in page 6, line 12, at the end, to insert: (5) Where the applicant for the grant of a licence to drive has paid to the licensing authority a fee for the issue of a provisional licence to enable him to learn to drive a motor vehicle he shall not be required to pay a further fee on the issue of a licence to drive. This Amendment is, I think, self-explanatory, and I will content...

Orders of the Day — LONDON PASSENGER TRANSPORT BOARD BILL (By Order).: Clause 33. — (Power to work Aldgate to Grove Road tramway on overhead system.) (20 Jun 1934)

Mr William McKeag: On a point of Order. Is it in order for the hon. Member for Mile End (Dr. O' Donovan) and another hon. Member to be engaged in an audible consultation during this Debate?

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce.: Grain-Carrying Vessels (Regulations). (15 May 1934)

Mr William McKeag: 44. asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is aware of the prosecutions which have recently taken place against the owners of foreign grain-carrying vessels, particularly those against the master of the Yugoslav steamer "Bakar," and the master of the Greek steamer "Anastassios Pateras," for failing to comply with the regulations governing the fitting of ships for the carrying of bulk...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce.: Grain-Carrying Vessels (Regulations). (15 May 1934)

Mr William McKeag: Will not the right hon. Gentleman consider the possibility of increasing the maximum penalty which could be inflicted on owners of foreign vessels who have deliberately flouted these regulations to the disadvantage of British owners?

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Class Vi. Mines Department of the Board of Trade. (15 May 1934)

Mr William McKeag: The right hon. and gallant Member for Ripon (Major Hills) said that he once represented a mining constituency. I have the honour to represent that same constituency, and it is rather a pleasing coincidence that I should now follow him in this Debate on a matter of such tremendous import and interest to the many thousands of people who were at one time his constituents, and are now mine. I...

INHERITANCE (FAMILYPROVISION) BILL (changed from "POWERS OF DISINHERITANCE BILL").: Clause 1. — (Power for court to order payment out of net estate of testator for benefit of surviving spouse or child.) (27 Apr 1934)

Mr William McKeag: I do not know what experience the hon. Member who has just spoken has on this matter, but I, speaking as a solicitor and a practical lawyer who might be called upon to advise on matters of this sort, seriously suggest to the House that the hands of the lawyers would be materially strengthened in advising on this matter if the words "or otherwise" were accepted. I am entirely in sympathy with...

INHERITANCE (FAMILYPROVISION) BILL (changed from "POWERS OF DISINHERITANCE BILL").: Clause 1. — (Power for court to order payment out of net estate of testator for benefit of surviving spouse or child.) (27 Apr 1934)

Mr William McKeag: The hon. Member may be so advised, but opinions differ on the subject and, speaking with some little knowledge of these matters, my view is that the Bill would be materially strengthened by the insertion of these words. Take the position of a lawyer in advising on this matter. If the words "or otherwise" are inserted he would be in a position to advise his client who was seeking to commence...

INHERITANCE (FAMILYPROVISION) BILL (changed from "POWERS OF DISINHERITANCE BILL").: Clause 1. — (Power for court to order payment out of net estate of testator for benefit of surviving spouse or child.) (27 Apr 1934)

Mr William McKeag: I suggest that the House cannot very well accept the Amendment in view of the previous proceedings to-day. It will be within the recollection of the House that Amendments which were moved by the hon. Member for Stockton-on-Tees (Mr. Macmillan) and the hon. Member for Thirsk and Malton (Mr. Turton) to Sub-section (1) were considered unnecessary because of the wording of Sub-section (2). If...

Oral Answers to Questions — Housing.: Financial Provisions Act. (19 Apr 1934)

Mr William McKeag: 18. asked the Minister of Health what number of houses have been and are being built at the 31st March, 1934, in respect of which guarantees have been given by local authorities as provided in the Housing (Financial Provision) Act, 1933; what are the several localities (local government districts) in which the said houses are situated and the number of houses in each locality; and what number...

Mr William McKeag: 20. asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer the number of proof gallons of spirits, bulk and standard barrels of beer, and gallons of wine retained for consumption in Northern Ireland in the calendar year 1933, and the estimated revenue therein chargeable against Northern Ireland?

Orders of the Day — Road Traffic Bill. (10 Apr 1934)

Mr William McKeag: The hon Member for Reading (Dr. Howitt) has just mentioned a real grievance which I am sure the Minister will do his best to meet, and in regard to which, I think the hon. Member may rest assured, he will have the support of the majority of Members if he raises it in Committee. The present Bill owes its birth to the very real and natural concern of the general public at what has come to be...

Orders of the Day — Coal Mines Bill. (28 Mar 1934)

Mr William McKeag: The hon. Member for Woodbridge (Mr. Ross Taylor) has voiced the real concern of people who are engaged in the undertakings which he mentioned, and I am sure that the plea which he has made to the Minister will be given close consideration. Early in the Debate this afternoon the hon. Member for East Rhondda (Mr. Mainwaring) made use of the expression "between the devil and the deep blue sea."...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport.: Forms, Rules, Orders and Regulations. (27 Mar 1934)
