Orders of the Day — Finance (Road Fund). (28 Apr 1936)

Mr Aneurin Bevan: ..., and I believe every hon. Member will agree that that appalling casualty list could have been appreciably reduced had there been better roads. I think there can be no doubt that had there been cycling tracks, proper pathways for children, improved corners, non-skid surfaces, and so on, there would have been a very substantial reduction in the number of casualties. On that I think all are...

Pit Baths. (16 Dec 1936)

Mr James Griffiths: ...the pits. We have a new pit to which the men travel 28 miles in the morning, and they have to travel 28 miles home again. It is a common thing for men to travel to work three, four or five miles, in omnibuses, on bicycles, or on motor bicyles, and very often they have to walk, if their circumstances are hard. The men work in our anthracite mines 7½ hours, and they sweat at the end of...

Preservation of Old Buildings. (10 Feb 1937)

Colonel Josiah Wedgwood: ...time has taught most people in this country something about England. All that we saw of England before was from the railway train, but now we know England infinitely more closely than we ever did before. Cycling has increased to such an enormous extent that the working-class public know England and appreciate her beauties much more than ever before. This change is being taken advantage of...

Orders of the Day — Factories Bill. (15 Feb 1937)

Mr George Ridley: ...provision there is a complete denial of all those physical and recreational pleasures and delights which, at that stage of a child's life, are almost as imperative as good food and sleep.

Orders of the Day — Supply. (9 Jul 1937)

Sir Archibald Sinclair: vital. I hope the Parliamentary Secretary will assure us that that is going on speedily. I do not know whether pedestrian railings are successful or not. If they are, I hope that that also and cycling tracks will he pressed. In short, while I do not want to scoff at the emphasis that the right hon. Gentleman laid upon the education of the human element, I do not think that that...

Mr Herbert Morrison: the possession of railway and other statutory owners which most seriously limit the free flow of traffic, and wherever the traffic conditions require, at providing dual carriageways, footpaths, and cycling tracks; at removing blind corners, circumventing the dangers of cross roads, reducing camber and effecting super-elevation.

He, too, is living at home, and perhaps cycling or going by train eight or 10 miles to his school. From that £3 10s. he...

Class I.: Law Charges and Courts of Law, Scotland. (21 Jul 1938)

Road Accidents. (16 Nov 1938)

Mr Frederick Macquisten: ...problems would be solved. There would not be the present congestion in the towns, and industries would be scattered over the countryside. There should also be tracks for cyclists. I am very fond of cycling, but I have not the nerve to cycle when motorists are whizzing past me. Cycling is good for health and I would gladly indulge in it if there were safety tracks. The motorist,...

Orders of the Day — Workmen's Compensation Bill. (18 Nov 1938)

Mr George Ridley: ...£3. Take the case to which I have just referred and assume that the man was earning 65s. He has not only been robbed by his incapacity of his employment: he has been robbed of his enjoyment. He has been robbed of the opportunity of football, cricket, cycling, swimming, rambling, gardening and all the wide range of household activities as well. We have no right to add to those denials,...

European Situation. (13 Apr 1939)

Mr John McGovern: .... They will do everything in order to try and wreak vengeance on the rest of the world and to bring an early close to a successful war. My mind goes back to the Munich period.

...class, and there is no doubt that this motor tax will affect considerably the lower reaches of those who use mechanically-propelled vehicles. The Budget propose to increase the tax upon a motor cycle from 12s. to 17s. 6d., an increase of 5s. 6d., or 45 per cent. over previous taxation. The right hon. Gentleman might have been more considerate in this motor taxation. He might have adopted...

Orders of the Day — LIMITATION BILL [Lords].: Clause 21. — (Limitation of actions against public authorities.) (3 May 1939)

Mr Dingle Foot: ...months ago a case which, although it is not a case in which this defence was applied, I give as an example of the kind of action which is brought against a local authority. A corporal in the Army was cycling through the streets of a city and was killed by falling off his bicycle on to the road. His widow had reason to believe that the cause of the accident was the state of the tramlines...
