Oral Answers to Questions — Resettlement (Training Allowances): War Factories, Merseyside (Demonstration) (14 Jun 1945)

Mr George Reakes: May I ask the Prime Minister if it would not have been better for the Government Departments to have foreseen the situation, and made it unnecessary for workers who have rendered wonderful service on Merseyside in the war situation, to demonstrate in this manner?

Privilege (Letter to Member) (21 Mar 1945)

Mr George Reakes: I beg leave to raise a question of Privilege. Recently, I received a communication from a firm of farmers containing what, to me, is an obnoxious offer of monetary reward for services expected to be rendered. The whole idea has given me great annoyance, and will be found, I believe, to be contrary to Parliamentary traditions and the traditions of public life. I take this, the earliest...

Privilege (Letter to Member) (21 Mar 1945)

Mr George Reakes: I beg to move, That the matter of the Complaint be referred to the Committee of Privileges

Oral Answers to Questions — Evacuee Child's Death, Wallasey (Medical Evidence) ( 8 Mar 1945)

Mr George Reakes: asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether, in view of important additional medical evidence submitted to him recently with regard to Brian Baldock, a two years old evacuee to Wallasey, who was dead when a local medical practitioner was called in, he will now order a public investigation into the failure of the coroner to hold an inquest on the deceased child.

Oral Answers to Questions — Evacuee Child's Death, Wallasey (Medical Evidence) ( 8 Mar 1945)

Mr George Reakes: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the medical practitioner who was called in has given me a signed statement, which I will pass to him, in which he says there was a blue bruise on the forehead of the child, that the body was ill-nourished and the abdominal wall was contracted; and is the right hon. Gentleman now prepared to take that into consideration, jointly with the fact that the...

Housing (Modification of Temporary Programme) (23 Feb 1945)

Mr George Reakes: Is the Minister satisfied that what amounts to a revolutionary change in policy will not have a detrimental effect upon achieving an immediate or at any rate an early solution of the problem of the bombed areas?

Orders of the Day — County War Agricultural Executive Committees ( 6 Feb 1945)

Mr George Reakes: The importance of this question is such that I think it merits consideration on a much wider basis than that of taking an individual case as has been done by the hon. Member for Southampton (Mr. Craven-Ellis). I appreciate all that he has said, and there is a great deal of virtue in his sug- gestion that there should be a public inquiry. I would like the Minister to consider the wisdom and...

Orders of the Day — A.T.S. (Overseas Service) (24 Jan 1945)

Mr George Reakes: I understood the hon. Lady to say that it was due to the fact that women had not volunteered in sufficient numbers that it had been necessary to resort to conscription. One of the statements she has made contradicts the other.

Orders of the Day — A.T.S. (Overseas Service) (24 Jan 1945)

Mr George Reakes: I ask the Noble Lady to withdraw that expression.

Orders of the Day — A.T.S. (Overseas Service) (24 Jan 1945)

Mr George Reakes: I will not detain the House long. I find it very painful to disagree with the Noble Lady who has just spoken, but I must challenge her statement that the men of to-day are angels, and compare favourably with the men of 50 years ago. Why are we considering this subject to-day, the question of sending women overseas compulsorily? Because we have had men in public life for the last 25 years...

Orders of the Day — A.T.S. (Overseas Service) (24 Jan 1945)

Mr George Reakes: Even if they are not, they are stronger than the frail young women who are to be sent overseas. There are thousands of men who could be released from clerical duties, in order to ease the man-power situation, if it is as serious as has been made out. I hope that if ultimately it is considered necessary to send these women overseas on a compulsory basis—and if the necessity is proved beyond...

Orders of the Day — A.T.S. (Overseas Service) (24 Jan 1945)

Mr George Reakes: The business of the Royal Commission does not embrace a matter of this sort.

Orders of the Day — A.T.S. (Overseas Service) (24 Jan 1945)

Mr George Reakes: But the right hon. Gentleman has a mind of his own, I hope.

Orders of the Day — Licensing Planning (Temporary Provisions) Bill (23 Jan 1945)

Mr George Reakes: Would there not be a sacrifice of drinking area to achieve that result? That is a very important point.

Orders of the Day — Licensing Planning (Temporary Provisions) Bill (23 Jan 1945)

Mr George Reakes: Does the Bill bring within its powers of control licensed premises just outside bombed areas, that have in no way been damaged by enemy action? There are many such cases. Looking at the matter from the town planning point of view, it is vital that the committee which is set up should have control to enable it to deal with those premises, in order to make a more perfect planning scheme.

Shelter Accident, Bethnal Green (19 Jan 1945)

Mr George Reakes: As I first placed a Question on this matter on the Order Paper, may I ask the right hon. Gentleman to believe that I was not concerned with the findings of the Bethnal Green inquiry? I was more concerned with the remarks of the Master of the Rolls, particularly when he said that the inquiry was held in camera on the flimsiest pretext, and that is the reason why I tabled the Question. It is...

Oral Answers to Questions — Civil Defence: Shelter Accident, Bethnal Green (18 Jan 1945)

Mr George Reakes: asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he is now in a position to make a statement on the observations made by the Master of the Rolls when dismissing the appeal of the Bethnal Green Corporation against damages awarded against them in a lower court in connection with the air-raid shelter disaster.

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Old Age Pensions (18 Jan 1945)

Mr George Reakes: In view of the reply given by the right hon. Gentleman, does he not agree that the time is overdue now for the abolition of the means test for old age pensioners?

Orders of the Day — Representation of the People Bill: Clause 1. — (Extension of local government franchise.) (17 Jan 1945)

Mr George Reakes: I should like briefly to support the Clause, although I was interested in the speech of the hon. Member for Penryn and Falmouth (Mr. Petherick), which gave a very well-considered viewpoint on behalf of those who are against the Clause. I feel there is a tendency to-day to regard the payment of rates as the be-all and end-all of citizenship. It is not. All these people, whether they are...
