Petition: Great North Road (By-Passes) (13 Feb 1957)

Major Sir Robert Conant: I beg to ask leave to present a Petition signed by 41,560 people who reside in areas adjacent to the Great North Road, which points out the urgent need for improving the road communications in those areas. The prayer of the Petition is as follows: Wherefore your petitioners pray that to ease traffic conditions on or near the Great North Road, an immediate start be made on the implementation...

Orders of the Day — Agriculture (Safety, Health and Welfare Provisions) Bill: 22. — (Application to Scotland.) (29 May 1956)

Major Sir Robert Conant: In a few sentences, I should like to express a welcome to the Bill and congratulate my right hon. Friend. With many other hon. Members, I dislike in principle the idea of giving Ministers wide powers to make regulations, but in circumstances such as exist in agriculture it is the only practicable method by which there can be given to the industry, through legislation, the safeguards which...

Export Trade (18 Nov 1955)

Major Sir Robert Conant: I should like to begin by offering my congratulations to my hon. Friend the Member for Eastbourne (Sir C. Taylor) upon his continuing good fortune in the Ballot. I do not know how many times he has done it, but if ever he wants a partner in his football pools, I am willing to sign on. The House has enjoyed considerably the speech by the hon. Member for Bilston (Mr. R. Edwards), but I did not...

Export Trade (18 Nov 1955)

Major Sir Robert Conant: I quite appreciate that and no one could say that nationalisation is the whole source of the trouble. But the fact is that such exports as we do have are in token form and maintained entirely to keep alive foreign markets in the hope that some day it may be possible to rebuild the export trade in coal. In the circumstances, the Government were wise to reduce our exports of coal. We were...

Orders of the Day — ROAD TRAFFIC BILL [Lords] ( 5 Apr 1955)

Major Sir Robert Conant: I fully agree with the hon. Member for Sowerby (Mr. Houghton) about the danger of dogs on the highway. According to my reading of the accident statistics, about three times as many accidents were caused by dogs as by inebriated drivers. That is an interesting fact, but I am not sure what we can do about it. I do not think that we can send the owners of loose dogs to prison. Probably all that...

Oral Answers to Questions — Farm Tractor Drivers (Minimum Age) (17 Mar 1955)

Major Sir Robert Conant: asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation whether he will amend the regulations in order that the same minimum age shall apply to the driver of a farm tractor as in the case of a motor-cycle.

Railways Reorganisation Scheme (23 Nov 1954)

Major Sir Robert Conant: The hon. Member for Enfield, East (Mr. Ernest Davies) has emphasised at some length the differences between us in relation to these reorganisation proposals. I think that most of the points to which he referred are comparatively small matters, since where the railways are concerned, on the long-term basis we have a great deal on which we can all agree, not only as far as the ultimate aim is...

Orders of the Day — PESTS BILL [Lords] (22 Oct 1954)

Major Sir Robert Conant: Almost everything I had intended to say has already been said. This is a rather curious Bill in one sense, because Part I seems to be totally contradicted by Part II. Part I deals with the destruction of rabbits and Part II with the destruction of what many people regard as the most effective method of destroying rabbits. None the less, everybody wholeheartedly agrees with both these...

Suez Canal Zone Base (Anglo-Egyptian Agreement) (29 Jul 1954)

Major Sir Robert Conant: For quite a number of years my contribution to our proceedings has consisted of the suggestion, "That this House do now adjourn." I hope that my observations today and on any future occasion when I may catch your eye, Mr. Deputy-Speaker, will be equally agreeable to hon. Members. We are considering whether the Heads of Agreement initialled on Tuesday should form the basis of a treaty with...

Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Air Force: Low Flying Aircraft (Church Services) ( 7 Jul 1954)

Major Sir Robert Conant: asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air if he will give instructions to restrict as far as practicable the low flying of aircraft on Sundays during the hours when church services are normally held.

Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Air Force: Low Flying Aircraft (Church Services) ( 7 Jul 1954)

Major Sir Robert Conant: Can my hon. Friend pass on any instructions or suggestions which he may send out to our Allies in the United States and Canadian Air Forces?

Oral Answers to Questions — Police: Leicestershire and Rutland (Amalgamation) (26 Apr 1951)

Major Sir Robert Conant: asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he is aware that, as a result of amalgamating the Leicestershire and Rutland police forces, the ratepayers of Rutland will have to pay for the police over £2,000 per annum more than before the amalgamation of the forces; and whether he will amend the financial provisions of the scheme.

Oral Answers to Questions — Police: Leicestershire and Rutland (Amalgamation) (26 Apr 1951)

Major Sir Robert Conant: In view of the obvious injustice of the ratepayers of Rutland having to subsidise those of Leicestershire, in the absence of any agreed proposal being put forward would the right hon. Gentleman consider amending this scheme in a way which would keep the finances of the two counties quite separate, as, for instance, by having a joint chief constable instead of amalgamated forces?

Orders of the Day — Police Amalgamation, Leicestershire and Rutland (20 Feb 1951)

Major Sir Robert Conant: I beg to move, That an humble Address be presented to His Majesty, praying that the Draft Order entitled the Leicestershire and Rutland Police (Amalgamation) Order, 1951, a copy of which was laid before this House on 30th January, be annulled. I should like to thank the right hon. Gentleman the Home Secretary for coming here tonight to reply to this debate. On the face of it, it may seem that...

Orders of the Day — Police Amalgamation, Leicestershire and Rutland (20 Feb 1951)

Major Sir Robert Conant: A chief constable, 28 men and one woman. It may be said it may be efficient within the limits of its size, but clearly, because of its size, it cannot be organised into specialist departments. It cannot afford the scientific equipment which a larger force can have. It cannot command the reserves which other forces can command, and, obviously, the chances of promotion in a small force like...

Orders of the Day — Police Amalgamation, Leicestershire and Rutland (20 Feb 1951)

Major Sir Robert Conant: If the hon. Gentleman cares to come down, we will certainly take his, provided we have not got them already. I know what the hon. Gentleman is referring to, because that point was raised at the inquiry. There is a better type of camera than ours which we are quite ready to buy, because the price has now come down, but the one we have is quite efficient. Traffic, which is a big problem in...

Orders of the Day — Police Amalgamation, Leicestershire and Rutland (20 Feb 1951)

Major Sir Robert Conant: What I said was that this was the first time the right hon. Gentleman had compulsorily separated the police of a county from all other county services. In the case of Wales the principle of amalgamation was agreed before the inquiry took place.

Orders of the Day — Police Amalgamation, Leicestershire and Rutland (20 Feb 1951)

Major Sir Robert Conant: In this case it is another county.

Orders of the Day — Police Amalgamation, Leicestershire and Rutland (20 Feb 1951)

Major Sir Robert Conant: It is an island.

Orders of the Day — Police Amalgamation, Leicestershire and Rutland (20 Feb 1951)

Major Sir Robert Conant: Will the right hon. Gentleman add that there are also three officers who have gone through the Home Office course in detection, in addition to the sergeant?
