Orders of the Day — Civil Aviation (23 Nov 1961)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: The hon. Gentleman no doubt realises, when he refers to the accident rate of the independents concerning charter flying, that the Corporations do not normally do charter flying.

Orders of the Day — Civil Aviation (23 Nov 1961)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: My hon. Friend has raised such a very important point that I hope the House will forgive me for interrupting him to say that this question of insurance should be well known by the public so that they can protect themselves whether they are in the air or on the railways or travelling anywhere else. If there is a ques- tion of wilful negligence someone is responsible. The public should know...

Orders of the Day — Civil Aviation (23 Nov 1961)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: It is a pleasure to speak after the hon. Member for Macclesfield (Sir A. V. Harvey), not because I necessarily agree with him, but because he knows his subject and always has something very interesting to contribute from practical knowledge. I thought that in the speeches of some of my colleagues there was a very unfortunate inference—it was made by my right hon. Friend the Member for...

Orders of the Day — Civil Aviation (23 Nov 1961)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: That may be so, but nevertheless they have to be passed by the Ministry in precisely the same way as a B.O.A.C. pilot. Many B.E.A. and B.O.A.C. pilots are off duty for months in the winter. My hon. Friend will know that traffic is not as heavy for B.E.A. or B.O.A.C. in winter and, therefore, some of the pilots are not flying. There is no comparison he can make here which is to the detriment...

Orders of the Day — Civil Aviation (23 Nov 1961)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: If my company failed and went the way some hon. Members may like to see it go, there would be no local flying from Nottingham, Leicester, Derby, Burton and Sheffield, because B.E.A. cannot fly from those places. Therefore, hon. Members should be careful and consider the interests of the general public when they criticise independent air operators. Both Corporations are doing a sound job, but...

Orders of the Day — Sea Fish Industry Bill: Independent Airlines (Safety Standards) (14 Nov 1961)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: My hon. Friend's interest in this matter is very much appreciated. This matter is of interest to all passengers, but may I point out to him that charter companies are tested, tried and examined with regard to maintenance and operations in precisely the same way as the Corporations are, whether it is a scheduled service flight or a chartered flight. The whole process is gone through in the...

Orders of the Day — Civil Aviation (Licensing) Bill (2 Mar 1960)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: Is the Minister prepared to say whether he will give any instructions to the Board about the issue of these new transitional licences? Will he give the Board any guidance?

Orders of the Day — Civil Aviation (Licensing) Bill (2 Mar 1960)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: I will not follow the remarks of the hon. Member for Gillingham (Mr. Burden), although I must say that his statistics are most interesting. He has certainly made out his case for a great extension in air activity part, of course, which he wishes to go to the independents. In my fifteen years in the House I have spoken many times, but never have I been on such thin ice as I am this afternoon....

Orders of the Day — Civil Aviation (Licensing) Bill (2 Mar 1960)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: My hon. Friend the Member for Greenwich (Mr. Marsh) has made the serious statement that no one who has taken part in this debate supports the idea that the independent companies should exist unless they have some financial interest in the companies. I think my hon. Friend should be corrected. Hon. Members on both sides of the House have taken part in the debate because they are interested in...

Orders of the Day — Civil Aviation (Licensing) Bill (2 Mar 1960)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: My hon. Friend cannot have heard the speech I made in which I said the same thing as I said on the previous occasion, that it did have my support. I also think the independent companies should have a share.

Orders of the Day — Civil Aviation (Licensing) Bill (2 Mar 1960)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: My hon. Friend is quoting me to such an extent that I am sure he will give way again. This is eight years after the speech he is quoting. He is talking of a debate in 1952 when circumstances were very different from what they are today. There was very little development in the air in 1952. The corporations were losing millions at that time and the independents were having an extremely hard...

Civil Aviation (20 Jul 1959)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: The right hon. Gentleman appears to be trying to justify the Ministry in that there was no delay because of certain matters it had to investigate, such as overloading. Is he suggesting that it took the Ministry all that long time before the answers could be made to those things? Is not it rather the case that the Ministry tried to make one person, the managing director, responsible for the...

Civil Aviation (20 Jul 1959)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: When will the Minister do that?

Air Estimates, 1959–60: Vote a. Number for Air Force Service (5 Mar 1959)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: I agree with a great deal of what my hon. Friend the Member for Swindon (Mr. F. Noel-Baker) has said, and particularly with his theme on not building permanent installations all over the world, on which I have added my humble voice on many occasions in this Chamber. I have always felt that the one thing that must be borne in mind in the Royal Air Force is mobility. Immediately we get away...

Orders of the Day — Croydon Airport (14 Nov 1958)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: I am at a grave disadvantage in not having heard my hon. Friend the Member for Uxbridge (Mr. Beswick), who I am sure made one of his customary excellent speeches, or the other hon. Members who have spoken, because I was not able to be present in the Chamber in time to hear the commencement of this interesting and important debate. I wish to underline certain things I have beard said by the...

Air Estimates, 1958–59: Vote a. Number for Air Force Service (10 Mar 1958)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: We all know the hon. Gentleman's record and experience as a fighter pilot and, if I may say so, his very fine record, but is he not rather arguing as if the next war may be of the same conventional type as the last war? Is he not neglecting the fact that if this nuclear weapon in any form, either as a missile or in some other way, is used, the fighter and bomber aircraft will not be necessary?
