Orders of the Day — Clause 1. — (Cesser of exemption, in case of pedal cycles, from obligation to carry rear lamps.) (22 Feb 1945)

Major Abraham Lyons: It is not because of letters that I have received from my constituency that I oppose the Bill. The letters that I get come not so much from private individuals as from organisations. These cyclists are mainly of the working classes. If I thought they were wrong, I should not hesitate to say so. The hon. Member says we ought to get on with the Clause to-day and not defer it. Why not? The...

Orders of the Day — Clause 1. — (Cesser of exemption, in case of pedal cycles, from obligation to carry rear lamps.) (22 Feb 1945)

Major Abraham Lyons: I stand corrected, but the Minister still has the power that I refer to without the Clause, a power which exists as long as the Emergency Regulations exist, and I hope that the Minister of Transport will remain all the time a Member of the Government. There is one thing that is important. The House has never been put in possession of the facts on which two representative bodies are against...

Orders of the Day — Clause 1. — (Cesser of exemption, in case of pedal cycles, from obligation to carry rear lamps.) (22 Feb 1945)

Major Abraham Lyons: I understand that it is not contradicted that the council which was dealing with this matter set up a subcommittee which, by a small majority, made a representation against this pro- posal which the Government have thought fit to keep from Members of the House. We have not been able to see the decisions that they reached, nor the evidence on which they based them. We were told that four or...

Major Abraham Lyons: We heard of this to-day for the first time from my hon. Friend the Member for South Croydon, who made these very points and was never challenged by the Minister. Before we discuss the Clause it would be much better to give us the findings and the evidence upon which they based their decisions. 5.0 p.m. The lighting of rear lamps has been required under the Defence Regulations for a long...

Oral Answers to Questions — Road Transport: Motor Vehicles (Government Acquisition) (21 Feb 1945)

Orders of the Day — Colonial Development and Welfare Bill: Clause 1. — (Amendment of 3 and 4 Geo. 6, c. 40, s. 1 (1).) (16 Feb 1945)

Major Abraham Lyons: Before the right hon. and gallant Gentleman replies to the questions which have been put to him, may I raise this point? We know that climates and conditions generally differ widely, and that what applies to the social and economic progress of one place, may not necessarily apply to another. But, I believe there is a field where there is a good deal of common ground, and in which progress...

Orders of the Day — LIMITATION (ENEMIES AND WAR PRISONERS) BILL [Lords] (9 Feb 1945)

Major Abraham Lyons: I should like to make one or two comments upon this Bill and at the same time to thank the learned Attorney-General for introducing it. There must be, of course, a limitation—we all know that—but this Bill will prevent the limitation operating unjustly against those who may be affected and I therefore welcome it. The learned Attorney-General said that he would consider issuing in pamphlet...
