Orders of the Day — Poor Prisoners' Defence Bill.: Clause 1. — (Defence of poor persons committed for trial.) (2 May 1930)

Mr Robin Turton: I hope the Committee will not agree to accept the Amendment. The hon. Member for Wirral (Mr. Grace) has defined this Amendment as giving legal aid in all cases to the prisoner in the court below, but I think it would be wise for the Committee to remember that if the Amendment were carried and Clause 1 (1) then read: Any person charged with an indictable offence there would still be the...

Road Traffic [Money]. (20 Feb 1930)

Mr Robin Turton: I am rather incredulous about the need for this large amount of £165,000, which I understand will all go into increases in the staff of officials. There are 12 traffic areas and that is allowing over £13,000 for each area. The Minister mentioned a small increase in the staff of Whitehall. What does he mean by a small increase? If he can give us some figure showing what will be the increase...

Orders of the Day — ROAD TRAFFIC BILL [Lords]. (18 Feb 1930)

Mr Robin Turton: I wish to draw attention to one or two points in the Bill. What is the reason for the speed limit in the case of passenger-carrying vehicles with pneumatic tyres? My constituency borders on the Great North Road. It is the sincere desire of every one on the Great North Road to reduce the danger from these heavy vehicles, which are passing by from day to day at 50 miles an hour. If you have a...

Orders of the Day — Poor Prisoners' Defence Bill. (8 Nov 1929)

Mr Robin Turton: I beg to move "That the Bill be now read a Second time." I wish first to make an appeal to hon. Members that this Bill shall not suffer through the Parliamentary inexperience of its introducer, and that hon. Members in all quarters of the House will give it their sympathetic consideration. No hon. Member will deny that it is the great aim of English justice that, however poor he may be, no...

Orders of the Day — Poor Prisoners' Defence Bill. (8 Nov 1929)

Mr Robin Turton: I am afraid I must in form the hon. Member that the point of an appeal from the court of summary jurisdiction was included in a former Bill. This is just a first instalment Bill, and it was found that it could not be included in the Measure.

Ballot for Notices of Motions.: Agricultural Policy. (29 Oct 1929)
