Orders of the Day — Civil Aviation (29 Feb 1944)

Sir Lindsay Everard: I wish to say a word on behalf of the Auxiliary Air Force. Not very much has been said during the war about that Force, but I think that everybody in the country realises the wonderful show they have put up in the war.

Orders of the Day — Civil Aviation ( 1 Jun 1943)

Adjournment (Christmas): Civil Aviation (17 Dec 1942)

Sir Lindsay Everard: The last war was really the beginning of aviation. Out of the last war civil aviation was born. It is only 18 years ago that Imperial Airways itself was formed out of the amalgamation of the four companies then running between London and Paris. We have during the last few weeks been discussing various plans for the future of the country after the war. It is not generally well understood that...

Sir Lindsay Everard: I beg to move, in page 16, line 43, at the end, to insert: including any use other than agriculture. It would appear from what the learned Solicitor-General has just said that this point is covered. He has pointed out that land taken over may not necessarily be agricultural land and that the owner may prove that the land is no use to him for agricultural purposes. It might be building land,...

Orders of the Day — Agriculture (Miscellaneous War Provisions) Bill.: Clause 17. — (Control of sluices). (14 Feb 1940)

Sir Lindsay Everard: I beg to move, in page 12, line 40, after "by," to insert: (except in case of emergency) not less than forty-eight hours' previous.

Sir Lindsay Everard: I am not quite clear about the question of personnel here. There may well be, and indeed there have been, occasions when certain women have qualified as pilots, and it might be in future that women might possibly have to be used in flying Imperial air routes. I can name a number of exceptional navigators among women who have flown long distances with signal success, and it would be rather a...

Orders of the Day — British Overseas Airways (Re-Committed) Bill. (25 Jul 1939)

Sir Lindsay Everard: I should like to reinforce what my hon. Friend has said. We have a great many difficulties to contend with in the Royal Aero Club on this matter. The President of the Federation Aeronautique Internationale when he flies from France can land at Tunis and Algeria without having to pay landing fees, owing to the arrangement that is in force, but when he goes to any British Colony or Dominion...
