Death Of Brian Bevan

EDM number 909 in 1990-91, proposed by Doug Hoyle on 05/06/1991.

That this House regrets the death on Monday 3rd June of Brian Bevan, one of the legendary figures of Rugby League; notes that Brian an Australian who played all his rugby in Britain, was one of the original members of the Rugby League Hall of Fame and that, during a career starting in 1945 and spanning 18 seasons, 16 of them with Warrington, he scored a world record 796 tries and was, in the opinion of many people, the finest ever winger; and considers that Rugby League and the world of sport are poorer for his passing.

This motion has been signed by a total of 32 MPs.
