Orders of the Day — Supply.: Sir Philip Sassoon's Statement. (10 Mar 1932)

Mr Oliver Simmonds: The moment when we open the throttle and embark upon our first solo flight is a landmark in the life of each one of us, and certainly no less a milestone is the occasion when, for the first time, we spread our Parliamentary wings and rise to address this House. As I engage in this venture, I thank the House for the assurance given to me by tradition that I shall fly in a calm atmosphere....

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Air Estimates, 1932. (15 Mar 1932)

Mr Oliver Simmonds: The hon. Member for Stroud (Mr. Perkins) has taken, I think, rather a narrow view in regard to the light aeroplane clubs. Those interested in these clubs never regarded them as a definite source for service pilots. I think these clubs are primarily means of promoting airmindedness in this country. Why do we want to promote airmindedness? Simply because in the past this country has been a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Aviation.: Accidents. (23 Mar 1932)

Mr Oliver Simmonds: Does not the Under-Secretary think that this matter should be investigated because these validated certificates tend to bring our own certificates into disrepute?

Mr Oliver Simmonds: 17. asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air whether, in view of the difficulties that will be caused to operators of British civil aircraft by a reduction of the maximum permissible weight when operating at abnormal altitudes, he will give an assurance that any regulations in this matter will be on the basis of enlarged aerodromes and not of restrictive conditions with regard to the aircraft?

Clause 1. — (Extension of period in, respect of which transitional payments may be made in, certain cases.) (11 Apr 1932)

Mr Oliver Simmonds: Throughout the Debates on this Measure we have had various suggestions for increasing the rate of transitional payment. Whether this is to be done on the grand scale of indiscriminate relief for all, or by further minor modifications of the present Bill, the fact remains that in each and all of those cases an increased contribution from the Exchequer would be involved. If that be so, and I do...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Ministey of Transport. (20 Jun 1932)

The Vote is for only £105,964, but if we look at this matter from the beginning to the end we see that in fact a very much larger sum is involved when we discuss the Ministry of Transport. There is, first of all, the self-balancing expenditure, amounting in the current financial year to no less than...

Orders of the Day — Rent and Mortgage Interest Restrictions (Amendment) Bill. (12 Dec 1932)

Mr Oliver Simmonds: The advent of this Bill has been looked forward to, particularly in industrial constituencies, with immense interest, and at any rate so far as Birmingham is concerned I feel confident that my right hon.
