Orders of the Day — Industrial Injury Insurance (9 Nov 1944)

Mr George Buchanan: ...and his wife, who is also 26, gets £1 per week for the rest of her life. Can anybody defend that? What does it matter to me, or the widow who has three children, whether the husband is killed while cycling to his work or is killed, say, at the coalface? What does it matter whether he is a printer, pattern maker, miner or railway clerk? The facts are that he leaves a wife and children,...

Supply (20 Jul 1944)

Dr Hyacinth Morgan: ...? Take Nigeria: there is a Colony in which we have had a Government-owned colliery—used for 35 years. Is it not the fact that there is a high rate of accidents because the Nigerian miners, after cycling and walking 10 miles a day and more to work, worked in the mines and there suffered leg wounds because they had to work without leg and foot protection? Is that the fault of the...

Orders of the Day — Disabled Persons (Employment) Bill: Clause 2. — (Vocational training courses.) (18 Jan 1944)

Commander Thomas Galbraith: .... to road accidents, and the remainder are due to accidents which occur in one's house or at sports. Surely it would not be contended that those who receive injury on the football field, while out cycling, or while following their ordinary employment came within the same category as those injured in the service of the country. We feel that if anybody has to wait for treatment it should not...

Orders of the Day — War Pensions (20 Jul 1943)

...the last war, a Regular officer who served all through the years of peace and passed AI at the beginning of this war and who died this year at the age of 45 in these circumstances. He went on a motor cycling course, very strenuous, and from that he went straight on to manoeuvres, also very strenuous, which lasted a long time.

Orders of the Day — Prolongation of Parliament Bill.: Clause 2. — (Power to prolong the House of Commons of Northern Ireland.) (13 Oct 1942)

Sir Thomas Somerset: visit. The late Sir Joseph McConnell, who was Member for Antrim, offered to provide the hon. Member with a bicycle, but, after all, I suppose, like many of us he is getting to the age when cycling does not appeal to him so much. However, it so happened that at my request we lunched together in a public restaurant. There were seven of us at table, I think. One of the men was a...

Orders of the Day — UNITED STATES OF AMERICA (VISITING FORCES) BILL [Lords]. (4 Aug 1942)

Sir Noel Goldie: ...respect of anything done by him to any member of the said forces in good faith and without knowledge that he was a member of those forces. It might well be that when we are visiting our constituencies we might collide, while cycling, with a member of the American Forces. Apparently he would have no remedy against us at all. I know that is not what is meant, but the fact that it is possible...

Holidays at Home (Appeal to Landowners). (29 Jul 1942)

Mr Robert Hudson: ...too that holidaymakers will show their appreciation by taking special care not to do damage, for instance, to fences, walls or ditches, on property which they may be permitted to use for walking, cycling, camping or other recreational purpose, and in particular to avoid any damage to growing crops or to the harvest.

Class Viii.: Ministry of Pensions. (31 Jul 1941)

Sir Geoffrey Mander: ...outside his military camp; when a man is on leave and is attending a concert, a cinema or something of that sort; when he is going to quarters or billets on short leave; and when he is walking, cycling, or travelling in a car in his spare time. It is said that he is then in the same position as a civilian. That is not so. A soldier in uniform when on leave is always subject to discipline....

Adjournment (Whitsuntide). (9 May 1940)

Mr John McGovern: For one thing, the Labour Party Conference will be taking place next week, and a large number of members of the Labour party will be absent. Then there is the fact that I am going on a cycling tour and shall be away, probably, for three weeks. I hope the war will not suffer in consequence of that fact. I want to go to Belgium, Holland and France—if I am permitted to go there,...

Scottish Education and Evacuation. (21 Nov 1939)

Mr John McGovern: Yes, twice a week. Sometimes when I had been on a cycling tour it was twice a day. I have always believed that cleanliness is next to godliness. We had to bath ourselves in the one apartment, and if there is a desire on the part of fathers, mothers and children to escape having a bath because they have not a bathroom or proper accommodation, one can see how dirty habits grow. This problem...

Orders of the Day — Civil Estimates, 1939.: Ministry of Transport. (5 Jul 1939)

Mr William Leach: much thoughtless conduct amongst cyclists which is responsible for many accidents. There you have the key-note to all the recommendations which follow in this report. They go on to make them. They recommend that no cycling under 10 years of age should be allowed. [HON. MEMBERS: "Hear, hear!"] I hear approval of that recommendation in the Committee, and I ask the Minister to note it. The...

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...

Orders of the Day — Ways and Means.: Unclaimed Dividends. (2 May 1939)

...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...

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. When I was cycling from Czechoslovakia into Vienna I saw a great force there. People are entitled to believe that Hitler was bluffing, but I saw evidence in the tanks, in soldiers marching day and night, in...

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,...

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,...
