Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 9. — (Giving of Invoices, and Taking of Samples.) (12 May 1952)

Mr Charles Pannell: ...that any hon. Member who has consulted anybody in the trade will appreciate that the D line in this classification has no reality at all. If hon. Members look at line 24, which refers to shorts, they will realise that this refers to cycling shorts, khaki shorts and white tennis shorts, and it also includes cord shorts—and cord shorts are very similar to cord trousers except that the...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill (30 Apr 1952)

Mr Frank Beswick: ...which they play. People sometimes ask me why they are so important. Others ask why individuals who seek their sport in flying should receive financial encouragement more than those who turn to walking or cycling. One answer, with all respect to the cyclist, is that the aviator in time of war is probably in a position to help his country more than is the cyclist as such, although I would...

Description of article (women's or girls' wear) Amount not chargeable £ s. d. 3. Jackets (not including blouse-type jackets or pyjama jackets), blazers, coats, cloaks, capes (not including cycling capes) and overalls with sleeves, being garments exceeding 20" in length but not exceeding 42" in length; cycling capes exceeding 20" in length, waistcoats with sleeves, blouses,...

Clause 3. — (Short Title, Interpretation and Commencement.) (28 Nov 1951)

Mr Michael Maitland Stewart: ..., that the then Member for the New Forest and Christchurch quoted in the House the case of a platoon commander who had gone on a round of visits in the course of his duty and on the way home had a cycling accident and broke his leg. He received no compensation because he was not on duty. HANSARD does not reveal whether that injustice, as I am sure we should all think it to be, was ever put...

Orders of the Day — Education (24 Jul 1951)

Mr Christopher Hollis: ...training' to reach its modern concept, embracing not only physical training in the narrow sense, but also games, athletics, swimming and dancing, together with many such recreations as walking, cycling and camping, and ranging in scope from a subject of the curriculum to many recreational and adventurous activities. According to my memory, I seem to recollect that boys swam and dived, went...

Orders of the Day — Common Informers Bill (9 Feb 1951)

Mr Charles Pannell: ...themselves, or get anyone to do it, but they use the continual threat of common informer machinery. They have been extraordinarily successful in banning all sorts of things. They have stopped motor-cycling competitions. —[OFFICIAL REPORT, 23rd November, 1950; Vol. 481, c. 558–9.] I hope that somehow my hon. Friends the Member for Ealing, North, and Dagenham will resolve this...

Orders of the Day — Festival of Britain (Sunday Opening) Bill (23 Nov 1950)

Mr John Parker: ...themselves, or get anyone to do it, but they use the continual threat of common informer machinery. They have been extraordinarily successful in banning all sorts of things. They have stopped motor-cycling competitions—

Teaching Profession (Communist Activities) (8 Nov 1950)

Sir Arthur Harvey: .... It is right that they should be loyal to their profession and state their case. I do not argue against that at all, but it is known that the Communists are organising camps, and hiking and cycling tours for young people. It is all done in a subtle way. I am asking the Minister to recognise this and to watch it very closely through his inspectors and staff, and I want him to give us that...

Captain Hartman (Court Martial) (17 Jul 1950)

Mr Derek Walker-Smith: ...very vital delay, but it was only the first of a series of material delays in this story. In October, 1948, Hartman was examined by an Army psychiatrist; but in that same month he was involved in a cycling accident while in charge of certain regimental moneys, amounting to £117. The money was lost and Hartman was remanded for trial by general court martial. Whilst he was still...

Holiday Accommodation (23 Jun 1950)

Mr Robert Mellish: ...workers are not taking the right type of holday is, in the main, educational. They have not, as it were, seen the possibilities of enjoying the beauty of our countryside through such things as hiking, camping, cycling, boating, and so on. That ought to be part of the curriculum in our schools. What is the position today in this crazy world? We have a commercialised leisure, consisting of...

Orders of the Day — MIDWIVES (AMENDMENT) BILL [Lords] (8 May 1950)

Mr Walter Elliot: ...," which perhaps the Minister may remember, where the children are talking over the plague—it is a long time ago, a story of our fathers of old—and as a sort of motif through it comes the maternity nurse cycling down to the little house in the village to help and cycling away; while the children are sitting on the actual plague stone to which provisions were brought by those...

Orders of the Day — Post Office and Telegraph (Money) Bill (24 Mar 1950)

Mr Julian Snow: ...mind a postman in the little Essex village where I live. He is, I believe, an auxiliary postman, though he may be in the classification known as allowance deliverer. According to my calculation he cycles between 12 and 16 miles daily and one can set one's watch by the time he turns up at the post box on his round. He is over 60 years of age and he does a magnificent job. I wonder whether...

Orders of the Day — War Damaged Sites Bill (8 Nov 1949)

Mr Percy Shurmer: ...that the local authority would welcome the power to deal with these bombed sites. I have already been able to get local agents to agree to two large sites in my Division being used by young boys as cycling tracks. They have temporary lighting at night, and visiting teams are coming along. I must say that some of the agents have been very co-operative in allowing this, but nevertheless...

Orders of the Day — National Parks and Access to the Countryside Bill (1 Apr 1949)

Mr Osbert Peake: ...of the Duchy is on my side in this matter, because on the Access to Mountains Bill, 1939, he said he would be in favour of dealing severely with persons who set fire to areas of open space. May I say one word about motor bicycles? I am glad to see that the definition of footpath and bridle path in the Bill makes it quite clear that motor cyclists will not have any right over them in these...

Orders of the Day — National Parks and Access to the Countryside Bill (31 Mar 1949)

Mrs Barbara Castle: ...does on the question of the enjoyment of the parks. We have tended in the past to consider that the working-class enjoyment of the open air must necessarily and permanently be limited to hiking and cycling. That is not the vision we get from the Hobhouse Report. It proposes to provide sporting rights for working people through the work of the National Parks Commission in purchasing and...

Orders of the Day — PREVENTION OF DAMAGE BY PESTS BILL [Lords] (23 Feb 1949)

Mr Sidney Dye: ...of Agriculture officers for the destruction of pests, he ought to be able to enter into a continuing contract so that they can give continuous service. Quite recently my daughter told me that in cycling to school one morning she counted along about one and a half miles of road no fewer than 12 dead rats which had been killed during the night. It is an indication of the number of rats in...

Oral Answers to Questions — Roads: Cyclists (Tests) (21 Feb 1949)

Mr Peter Freeman: asked the Minister of Transport how many accidents were recorded in 1948 in which cyclists were involved; in how many of these were the cyclists children; whether he is aware of the voluntary cycling tests which have been instituted by the chief constable of Newport; and, in view of the large number of accidents and the steady increase in the number of cyclists on the road, if he will...

Orders of the Day — The Peak District (Quarrying) (7 Feb 1949)

Mr James Harrison: ...affected by this proposition, but I want to couple with their protests those of the citizens of Nottingham, Derby and Leicester. I have been connected for many years with the rambling and cycling clubs of Nottingham and Derby, whose populations are at a greater distance from the coast than are those in any other part of the country. That part of The Peak district is our holiday resort and...

Orders of the Day — Railway Passenger Services (16 Dec 1948)

Mr James Callaghan: ...and, I believe, there are a number who do, will be able to go to one station, do their walk across country and come back from another station. Another facility will be introduced for rambling and cycling organisations, who will be able to get touring tickets at one-third less than the point to point single fare cost. I have hurried over that list of facilities which have been made...

Farm Workers (Extra Rations) (22 Sep 1948)

Hon. Lancelot Joynson-Hicks: ...which we are trying to deal. How on earth does the hon. Lady believe that a farm labourer can be nourished and can enjoy a mid-day packed meal, after working five hours in the fields and probably cycling three or four miles to get there, on a sandwich filled with cold spaghetti? I should like to see the hon. Lady herself at the end of a week's harvesting on rations such as that. If I may...
