Prayers: Air Transport Development (28 Feb 1958)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: The House will be grateful to the hon. Member for Stockport. South (Mr. H. Steward) and the hon. Member for Gosport and Fareham (Dr. Bennett) for raising this very interesting subject, which is important to the House and very important indeed to the aircraft operators, whether the national Corporations or the independents. At one time, I began to wonder whether the hon. Member for Stockport,...

Prayers: Air Transport Development (28 Feb 1958)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: It is just as well that the hon. Member has made that clear. I should like to make it clear that I have an interest in aviation and in operating as an independent. I should like first to express my very great regret at the tragic accident yesterday, which we all feel most sincerely, coming as it does after another unfortunate accident at Munich, and following also a very unfortunate train...

Prayers: Air Transport Development (28 Feb 1958)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: It is looking at the whole question too parochially to talk about profits in connection with this nationalised industry which had to start from scratch after the war and was faced, as it still is, with American competition and competition from K.L.M. and Air France, whose organisations were not broken to pieces by the war. Therefore, the profit motive should not be the primary aim, it should...

Prayers: Air Transport Development (28 Feb 1958)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: There is a great deal of difference between inclusive tour services and scheduled services. Inclusive tour services are started by the operators who take the risk and put in their own money and so on. It is open to anyone to do that. As a matter of fact, the Corporations have started doing the same thing, much to my regret. In this case, they have learned from the independent operators that...

Prayers: Air Transport Development (28 Feb 1958)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: I do not consider that a valid argument. The hon. Gentleman is, presumably, talking about scheduled services started in 1945 by the Corporations, or resumed in that year. It would be unfair to take away the result of the Corporation's work. It would be indefensible to take their best services from them and share them out. The independent operators would take the same view were it suggested...

Prayers: Air Transport Development (28 Feb 1958)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: Yes; of course, they do. The independent operator has leaned upon the Corporations, and been greatly helped by the various Ministries and the aircraft industry, but there is no earthly reason why this should not be so. We are all the same people and the same country. That brings me to my final point. It is the British flag that we want to see flying round the world. I want to see it flying,...

Prayers: Air Transport Development (28 Feb 1958)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: Is not the hon. and learned Member confusing two things—peacetime operation and wartime operation? The Mercantile Marine, of course, assists the Navy in time of war, but we are now talking about peacetime and I submit that in peacetime Transport Command should handle the job. In war, all forms of transport will be commandeered, just as B.O.A.C., then Imperial Airways, was commandeered in...

Prayers: Air Transport Development (28 Feb 1958)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: The hon. and learned Gentleman is kind to give way. He is talking a great deal of sense on this subject and I hope that he will send a copy of his speech to the motor manufacturers and to the Manchester businessmen, because everything he is saying is right. These very aircraft facilities exist today and these very gentlemen are not taking advantage of them.

Prayers: Air Transport Development (28 Feb 1958)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: My hon. Friend has made a very important point about independent operators applying for licences which they have no intention of using. He must know that it takes some time to get an application through. For example, if my company applied for a licence now, it might take two, three or four months before the licence came through and it would then be too late to operate this season—and, of...

Orders of the Day — Air Estimates, 1957–58; Air Estimates, 1957–58, Vote on Account: Vote a. Number for Air Force Service (7 Mar 1957)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: First, I should like to welcome the Secretary of State and his hon. Friend in their present offices. I cannot pay them any higher compliment than to say that they served in the Royal Air Force and that we are always sure that whatever they do is done in the belief that they are doing right by the Royal Air Force. Therefore, I think that tonight the Secretary of State should make some comment...

Ashbourne Road, Derby (Speed Limit) (27 Nov 1956)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: I will not attempt to enlarge upon the review that my right hon. Friend the Member for Derby, South (Mr. P. Noel-Baker) has just made, but I should like to underline one or two features. The County Borough of Derby, the Road Safety Advisory Committee, the East Mackworth Tenants' Association—and they represent the people who use this road—and the Chief Constable, to name only a few of...

Ashbourne Road, Derby (Speed Limit) (27 Nov 1956)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: Would not the accident rate show that all the Ministers concerned are entirely wrong?

Ashbourne Road, Derby (Speed Limit) (27 Nov 1956)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: And the hon. Member as well.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Derby — Macclesfield Road (Speed Limit) (14 Nov 1956)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: rose—

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Derby — Macclesfield Road (Speed Limit) (14 Nov 1956)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: Is the Minister aware that this is a very serious matter to the inhabitants of Derby? Will he say whether his Department is regarded as being in a better position than the police and the Corporation of Derby and all the people of that area to know whether this is a dangerous stretch of road or not? If his Department is supposed to know best, will he consider a public inquiry in Derby into...

Remploy Factories (19 Jul 1955)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: Before the Minister passes from that subject—we all recognise the difficulty of the board and the work it has done—could he say whether he is satisfied that orders from Government Departments have been sufficiently large to make it possible for the board to make this a reasonable enterprise?

Air Estimates, 1955–56: MR. George Ward's Statement (10 Mar 1955)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: Would the hon. Gentleman mind going back to the question of the Comet? Did I understand him to say that it was being delivered, and if so, can he give us any idea of what use will be made of it? Is it to be used for passengers or freight?

Air Estimates, 1955–56: MR. George Ward's Statement (10 Mar 1955)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: As mine was the original question, may I say that the object of my question to the Minister was to find out when we shall have the strengthened Comets in Transport Command? It was not a criticism of Transport Command. The information I wished to obtain from the Minister was when Transport Command is to be added to by good aircraft and when we shall get the Comet.

Air Estimates, 1955–56: MR. George Ward's Statement (10 Mar 1955)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: Has the hon. Gentleman's Department considered shorter tours instead of married quarters—in other words, to bring people home, as the Navy does, by Transport Command after a shorter period abroad?

Civil Aviation (Trained Aircrew) (25 Feb 1955)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: We are all grateful to the hon. Member for St. Marylebone (Sir W. Wakefield) and the hon. Member for Gosport and Fareham (Dr. Bennett) for opening this debate this morning. They, and no doubt those who will follow me, have had first-hand experience and knowledge of this subject and are speaking about a matter which they sincerely feel requires immediate attention—and by that I mean...
