Orders of the Day — Residential Special Schools (Supervisors) (5 Jul 1966)

Captain Walter Elliot: ..., with no set time or days; availability for escort of boys to hospital, the dentist, and collecting boys from home. There are out-of-school activities such as the savings scheme, the care of pets, cycling parties, which is a great responsibility with such children, and group activities such as stamp collecting, art, scouting and so on. In addition there is all the preparation made by the...

Private Business: Greater London Council (General Powers) Bill (2 May 1966)

Mr John Parker: to Hainault Forest where they have picnics and enjoy the open country, with its pleasant scenery, away from the built-up areas. But, very important, youngsters of school age make a point of cycling there—especially in school holidays—and enjoying themselves in the open air. If it is intended to take over a part of Hainault Forest and construct a caravan site there, the whole...

Driving Instruction (4 Feb 1966)

Mr David Webster: ...They must teach their children how to cross the road, and which way to look before they do so. Next, I deal with the cyclist. As has been mentioned, one can now get a certificate of proficiency in cycling. This is a good thing, and I notice with some slight irony that on the day when my right hon. Friend the Member for Rushcliffe (Sir M. Redmayne) passed his advanced motoring test, my...

Clause 5. — (Vehicles Excise Duty: Increases and Alterations.) (19 May 1965)

Mr Victor Goodhew: ...) on the question of aircraft, but I dare not do so. It is extraordinary that it should have been necessary for one of my hon. Friends to discover this remarkable provision in the Budget for taxing cycles and tricycles. It is a sad reflection on the Government if they cannot produce a Finance Bill without having this sort of nonsense in it. I know that we passed a nonsense this morning on...

Bills Presented: Recreation and Leisure (Facilities) (4 Dec 1964)

Mr John Hunt: ...plans for the increased recreational use of such things as our waterways, national parks or disused airfields which are scattered in all parts of the country and whose runways often make excellent cycling tracks for youth clubs. I have been very interested this week to read the exciting and imaginative Lea Valley scheme which has been prepared by the Civic Trust on the initiative of a...

Palace of Westminster (13 Jul 1964)

Captain John Litchfield: .... I also represent a constituency which has a renowned association with the arts. Furthermore, I have a small personal interest in this matter, because I live in a house within a few minutes' cycling distance of this place from which I remember my great uncle, when I was a small boy and he was a very old man, telling me that he had witnessed the flames of the Old Palace of Westminster...

Queen's Speech (30 Oct 1962)

Mr Charles Loughlin: ...sort of attitude shows that we are living in the Middle Ages. Staff have staff conditions. They have superannuation and sickness payments and certain other benefits. If they have a puncture while cycling to work and they are a little late, it does not matter, whereas the skilled craftsmen has to clock in and gets no superannuation because he is not staff. The Government have to face that...

Oral Answers to Questions — British Army: B.A.O.R. (Sport Facilities) (1 Aug 1962)

Mr James Ramsden: All the normal sports are available in barracks and all ranks are encouraged to take part in them. Outside barracks there are facilities for sailing, canoeing, swimming, cycling and ski-ing.

Orders of the Day — ROAD TRAFFIC BILL [Lords]: New Clause. — (Wearing of Protective Headgear.) (17 Jul 1962)

Sir Ronald Bell: ...Secretary was on the back benches then. He was than, and for all I know still is, a most enthusiastic motor cyclist and a member of a motor cyclists' club. What he does not know about motor cycling is very little. He has been with these boys for years. On 31st May, the hon. and gallant Member for Croy-don, North-East, who is now the Parliamentary Secretary, made a most vigorous attack on...

Orders of the Day — ROAD TRAFFIC BILL [Lords]: New Clause. — (Licence to Drive a Motor Cycle.) (17 Jul 1962)

Mr George Strauss: ...or have in mind. I put this proposal forward as a very important one. It may be unpopular with those motor cyclists who at the age of 16 or 17 want to go straight on to the roads with a motor cycle, without having the nuisance of training or attending a course. All right. One has to put up with that, but there is a very large class of people with whom this proposal would be exceedingly...

ROAD TRAFFIC BILL [Lords] (28 Feb 1962)

Mr Ernest Marples: ..., together with that of the local safety committees and voluntary workers, has obviously not been in vain. Therefore, we have been successful with children and we propose to continue with their cycling efficiency scheme and other measures. In the case of adults, the problem is more difficult. Adults seem to think that they know everything about road safety. We hammer them with posters,...

Orders of the Day — Local Government (Financial Provisions etc.) (Scotland) Bill: Second Schedule. — (Consequential Amendments.) (30 Jan 1962)

Mr William Ross: ...their discretion. Many of the institutions coming within Clause 4 (5) are very worthy, but they will be equally hit by the new valuation. I am the president of the Ayrshire and Dumfriesshire Cycling Association, whose members are not so badly harried as they are in England where chief constables are sometimes not very helpful about mass starts. These are clubs for working lads for young...

African Affairs (19 Oct 1961)

Mr Frederic Bennett: ...a newspaper which, as was common at that time, contained photographs of small girls and others who had been raped or butchered in the Congo, and said, "In a few moments' time my child will be cycling to school. I do not know whether that sort of thing will spread over the frontier here now." I said that it would not, and, thank goodness, so far we have not had disturbances of that sort in...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill (4 May 1961)

Mr Arthur Woodburn: ...about public schools, and I have never heard anything more tragic in my life. We heard a woman speak who went charring in the mornings and of her husband, who otherwise could have afforded a car, cycling to work and teaching at night-school in order to send their one ewe lamb to a public school. Others were doing similar things. When the question was asked why they did it, a noble Lord who...

Orders of the Day — Criminal Justice Bill: Clause 10. — (Minimum Age for Attendance Centre.) (12 Apr 1961)

Miss Alice Bacon: ...the juvenile liaison officers before they have appeared in court, and of those 194, only 9 per cent., have committed any further offence, and some of those offences have been quite minor, such as cycling offences, which shows that the juvenile liaison scheme, at any rate, has a success rate which is very high.

Orders of the Day — Motor Vehicles (Passenger Insurance) Bill (10 Feb 1961)

.... People may think that some motor cyclists are rather scatter-brained, but I assure the House that they are not so foolish not to realise that there is a considerable risk involved in motor cycling. The person who rides as pillion undertakes this risk voluntarily, and I do not think that he should expect to receive unlimited reimbursement for the consequences. I would say that, up to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: National Cycling Proficiency Scheme (25 May 1960)

National Cycling Proficiency Scheme

Traffic Engineering (11 Mar 1960)

...important statement, when he told us that a new Road Traffic Bill would be introduced before Easter. I am not quite certain what now becomes of all the arguments he raised against my little motor-cycling Bill, when he said that it would clash with the consolidation Measure, but I am glad to hear that we are to have new legislation.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Road Accidents (9 Mar 1960)

Mr Ernest Marples: ...fatal or serious accident who has appeared to the police to be in such a condition as to have rendered him liable to be charged with a drink offence under the Road Traffic Acts. The offence may be cycling, or driving or being in charge of a motor vehicle, in either case while under the influence of drink to such an extent as to be incapable of having proper control of the vehicle. I am...

Orders of the Day — Road Traffic (Driving of Motor Cycles and Mopeds) Bill (4 Mar 1960)

...Committee on Road Safety, entitled "Minimum Age for Motor-Cyclists," and dated July, 1957. The object behind the recommendations of that Report was to encourage boys to start their motorcycling careers on light machines, and to graduate to the more powerful types as they gained experience. I must confess that the idea behind the Bill came to me about ten years ago, before I had entered...
