Mr Oliver Simmonds: Would the right hon. and gallant Gentleman agree that it is highly improper for any member of his Department to circulate party political pamphlets, whether they come from the Right or the Left, and in view of the fact that this is not the first grave indiscretion of this officer, would he consider whether he could be more usefully employed elsewhere?

Oral Answers to Questions — British Overseas Airways Corporation: Executive Control (14 Apr 1943)

Mr Oliver Simmonds: Would my right hon. Friend bear in mind that there is universal apprehension at the unhappy state of the executive control of the Corporation, and will he seek out, even throughout the Empire, men who have had experience in air transport, and not merely rely upon successful business men or chartered accountants?

Oral Answers to Questions — British Overseas Airways Corporation: Pilots (Flying Hours) (14 Apr 1943)

Mr Oliver Simmonds: asked the Secretary of State for Air whether he is aware of the excellent record of the flying-boat and landplane captains of the British Overseas Airways Corporation; and whether he will state the average of the total hours flown and total miles covered by the 12 pilots who have most flying hours to their credit?

Mr Oliver Simmonds: Does not this show that there is nothing wrong with the flying side of British civil aviation? Will the right hon. Gentleman see that the executive and managerial sides are equally strengthened? Would he also be good enough to publish the names of these pilots in the OFFICIAL REPORT?

Civil Aviation (14 Apr 1943)

Mr Oliver Simmonds: My hon. Friend made a very important reference to international control, but I thought his remark a little ambiguous. Would he be quite specific? He is not in any way suggesting an international aircraft-operating organisation, is he?

Emergency Powers (Defence): War Production Undertakings (Government-Nominated Directors) (7 Apr 1943)

Mr Oliver Simmonds: I am not anxious to take up too much of the time of the House, but if I am asked, certainly I will reply. I would say that a financial director in the sense that I am using the word—and it is the usually accepted sense in commerce—is one who is placed upon the board because the owner of a certain interest in the business desires that that director should protect the financial investment.

Emergency Powers (Defence): War Production Undertakings (Government-Nominated Directors) (7 Apr 1943)

Mr Oliver Simmonds: I would think it is clearly at the selection of the investor, but there must be many cases where, for instance, the financial director is a chartered accountant and has no knowledge at all of the affairs of the business. I think the term is generally recognised throughout industry. Let me therefore examine this point as to whether these directors are financial or administrative directors....

Mr Oliver Simmonds: Mr. Simmonds rose——

Emergency Powers (Defence): War Production Undertakings (Government-Nominated Directors) (7 Apr 1943)

Mr Oliver Simmonds: I must agree that my right hon. Friend the Minister of Production has given us some very substantial pledges, and I am sensible of what my hon. Friend the Member for South Croydon (Sir H. Williams) and a number of my hon. Friends who signed this Prayer feel on this issue. Although, therefore, we feel that the Order would be better off the Statute Book, we nevertheless take note of what has...
