Orders of the Day — Riding Establishments (Registration and Inspection) Bill. (17 Mar 1939)

Sir Mervyn Manningham-Buller: I beg to second the Amendment. The object for which this Bill is introduced interests me as one who has had to do with horses all his life. It is unnecessary, however, to achieve the object which the framers have in mind, which is simply to deal with the undesirable schools and riding establishments which exist. It seems to me quite unnecessary for that purpose to bring in fresh legislation...

Orders of the Day — Riding Establishments (Registration and Inspection) Bill. (17 Mar 1939)

Sir Mervyn Manningham-Buller: A great many charges have been made by the mover and seconder of the Bill as to the conduct of these riding establishments, but the seconder admitted that when he was asked to provide evidence it was difficult to do so.

Orders of the Day — Riding Establishments (Registration and Inspection) Bill. (17 Mar 1939)

Sir Mervyn Manningham-Buller: "Prosecutions" was the word used, of that I am convinced; and he went on to say that convictions were not obtained in many of those cases, and that many of them were cases dealing with riding establishments. I repeat that, in my opinion, the existing powers are sufficient to deal with a man who maltreats his horses or works them when they are in an unfit condition, and if any further...

Orders of the Day — Riding Establishments (Registration and Inspection) Bill. (17 Mar 1939)

Sir Mervyn Manningham-Buller: What I suggested was that if there was prima facie evidence, there was power to go and inspect the premises.

Orders of the Day — Riding Establishments (Registration and Inspection) Bill. (17 Mar 1939)

Sir Mervyn Manningham-Buller: I did not raise an objection to the charge of one guinea. I objected to the farmer having to be registered at all.
