  5. Bob Cryer Biography

    George Robert Cryer, known as Bob Cryer (3 December 1934 – 12 April 1994) was a politician in the United Kingdom. Born in Bradford, he was educated at Salt High School, Shipley, and the University of Hull. He then worked as a teacher and lecturer.He was the Labour Member of Parliament for Keighley (1974–1983) and Bradford South (1987–1994) until his death in a road traffic accident on 12 April 1994 at the age of 59. During his absence from the British Parliament, he was the MEP for Sheffield from 1984 to 1989.After British Rail closed the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway, Cryer was one of a group of local people who formed the KWVR Preservation Society, which bought the line from British Rail and reopened it. As the Society's first chairman, he helped to facilitate the shooting of the film The Railway Children on the line in the summer of 1970 and had a small part in it, as a guard.At the start of the Queen's Speech debate on 21 November 1989 – the first time the House of Commons was televised – Cryer raised a brief point of order on the subject of access to the House, thereby denying the Conservative Ian Gow, who was to move the 'Loyal Address' to the Speech from the Throne, the accolade of being the first MP (apart from the Speaker, Bernard Weatherill) to speak in the Commons on TV.Cryer died in a car accident on 12 April 1994 when the Rover he was driving on his way to London overturned on the M1 motorway near Junction 5 at Watford. His wife Ann, who was with him, survived the crash.His wife Ann Cryer was MP for Keighley between 1997 and 2010, and their son John Cryer is the MP for Leyton and Wanstead.
