Orders of the Day — Civil Aviation (12 Oct 1945)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: I am taken rather unaware, Sir, as did not Know that might be called upon to speak on this matter to-day, and, added to that, I am terribly nervous, but I know I shall have the consideration of the House. I agree with a lot of what I have heard to-day, but much has been said about what should be done immediately and of the harm caused by delay. Frankly I do not know what harm there is,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Food Supplies: Fats and Dairy Produce (Imports) (5 Dec 1945)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: asked the Minister of Food why more fats and dairy produce cannot be imported into this country from Denmark and the Scandinavian countries.

Oral Answers to Questions — Food Supplies: Fats and Dairy Produce (Imports) (5 Dec 1945)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: Does the right hon. Gentleman appreciate that there is a surplus in Denmark of fats, and would he see that these come to the British house-wife, as fats are one of the most important things to us in these days?

Orders of the Day — Defence Policy (5 Mar 1946)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: Having been successful in catching your eye, Mr. Deputy-Speaker, I will not detain the House more than a few moments to discuss two small points. So far as I can see, the main consideration in this matter is that of manpower. As back benchers I think we are quite unable to say what our Service requirements are, politically or strategically. We have not the knowledge. It does appear however...

Air Estimates, 1946: MR. Strachey's Statement (12 Mar 1946)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: It is very easy for me to follow and agree with the hon. and gallant Gentleman the Member for Macclesfield (Air-Commodore Harvey) I am sure we are not discussing this from any party angle at all. The aim, which we all wish to see, is that we shall have a most efficient Royal Air Force. Sooner or later there is no doubt the Treasury, or the people who are controlling the money, are going to...

Air Estimates, 1946: MR. Strachey's Statement (12 Mar 1946)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: I thank the hon. Member for making that point. I did, of course, mean the Dominions; it was purely a slip of the tongue. I would like to add my congratulations to the Under-Secretary for his speech on our Air Force, of which we are all so proud. We feel—I am sure I speak for all hon. and right hon. Members—that we receive, as Members of the House of Commons, remarkable services from the...

Air Estimates, 1946: MR. Strachey's Statement (12 Mar 1946)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: This is very interesting, but I wonder just why the hon. Member is suggesting that this training should take place abroad. He has suggested that it would be an advantage to train pilots or air crews in any other country than England. Where does this lead us?

Air Estimates, 1946: MR. Strachey's Statement (12 Mar 1946)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: I have been awaiting an explanation from the hon. Gentleman. He still has not convinced me that there is any advantage in training somewhere else. This is the best country for training. If our pilots are trained here, surely they can serve overseas, but why stress this matter of training elsewhere?

SUPPLY [11th March]: Donington Park (Derequisitioning) (13 Mar 1946)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: As one of the members of the deputation which visited the Secretary of State for War, I support my hon. Friend in his appeal for the return of Donington Park. Apart from the racing interests, there were representatives of outdoor organisations on that deputation. Surely, now that the war is finished, and spring and summer are coming on, we have a right to one place in the Midlands to which...

New Clause. — (Staff appointments.) (8 Jul 1946)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: I am sorry that I cannot agree with my hon. Friend the Member for West Middlesbrough (Mr. Cooper) in much of what he says about the present administration. He has, in my view, quoted the wrong examples. I do not think it right that he should base his case on Campbell Orde, a distinguished pilot who has had considerable experience as an air line pilot, and d'Erlanger, who has great experience...

New Clause. — (Discontinued services.) (8 Jul 1946)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: I should like to support completely the proposal put forward by the Opposition, that compensation should be given; but on quite different grounds. I can see no more justification for giving compensation here than for giving compensation to anyone who, for instance, had a lorry at the beginning of the war and had to sell it, on a falling market; or to a farmer who could not run his farm...

Fifth Schedule. — (Adjustments of the functions of statutory undertakers.) (11 Jul 1946)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: There are only one or two points upon which I would like to touch. I consider it is a privilege to see this Bill through the House and, after the time we have spent during the Committee stage and else where, it is a relief. I believe that we have improved the Bill. Bon. Members opposite perhaps can take a little credit for that but not too much. This is not a perfect Bill, but during my short...

Fifth Schedule. — (Adjustments of the functions of statutory undertakers.) (11 Jul 1946)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: I apologise, Mr. Deputy-Speaker. With the passing of this Bill, we are, in a way, making some recognition of the work of the pilots and air crews of our civil flying Services during the war and in particular B.O.A.C. I would like to point out to the Parliamentary Secretary that, in the last 3o years, we have built up two of the biggest flying services and two of the finest aircraft industries...

Fifth Schedule. — (Adjustments of the functions of statutory undertakers.) (11 Jul 1946)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: Again, Mr. Deputy-Speaker, I apologise. I will close by saying that the introduction of this Bill and the passing of it through this House will give encouragement to every pilot, air crew, and all ground staff within our national flying services. Good luck to them.

Orders of the Day — Naval Personnel (Families, Passage Costs) (11 Oct 1946)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: There is only one observation which I should like to make, and I am sure it is going to be a most unpopular one. I would, of course, support without question the proposal of the hon. and gallant Gentleman opposite that these charges should not be made to these naval ratings, because it would not be so in the case of a soldier or an airman, but I wonder whether this policy of trooping families...

Orders of the Day — Naval Personnel (Families, Passage Costs) (11 Oct 1946)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: I was not dealing exactly with that particular case which was raised by the hon. and gallant Gentleman. That is the only point I wish to make.

Orders of the Day — Supply: Air Estimates, 1947–48 (17 Mar 1947)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: I would like to add my congratulations to the Minister on his very lucid and informative speech, which told us exactly what has been going on in the last 12 months in the Royal Air Force. The first criticism which I would like to make is in regard to the Meteorological Service mentioned in Vote 3. One does not want to be too unkind, but the staff is, surely, very large—over 600 people in...

Orders of the Day — Supply: Air Estimates, 1947–48 (17 Mar 1947)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: I am sure that the right hon. Gentleman, with his experience, will appreciate that it will be necessary to have one authority to decide on what manufacturers should build for the Fleet Air Arm, for the R.A.F. and for civil aviation. There must be some control in that direction.

Oral Answers to Questions — Civil Aviation: Private Companies (Visas) (2 Apr 1947)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Civil Aviation, what steps he proposes to take to ensure that the air crews of private companies are granted the same facilities as those of the public flying corporations with regard to visas for flying through foreign countries.

Oral Answers to Questions — Civil Aviation: Private Companies (Visas) (2 Apr 1947)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: In view of the importance of this matter to the private operators, would the Parliamentary Secretary consider referring the matter to the International Conference in America or Canada in the near future?
