British Airways Corporations (27 Oct 1953)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: My experience of the Corporations operating in the West Indies is that, for efficient operating, they had to keep full staffs, notwithstanding the fact that there was not the traffic to justify the expense. Now, may I be permitted to say that I have noticed a very great improvement in the deportment of crews of the British Corporations during the last year or so. That is a most important...

British Airways Corporations (27 Oct 1953)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: I can Certainly give it as my personal opinion and I sincerely believe that my political party are not opposed, and never have been, to private enterprise in aviation, provided it is never at the expense of the public flying Corporations. That is where we have always taken our stand. We have always contended that in civil aviation the public Corporations must have priority. After the war it...

British Airways Corporations (27 Oct 1953)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: My suggestion is not that there should be no tax on petrol but that the tax should be reduced, as it has been in other cases. On the first point about what I said about private enterprise and the Corporations, I entirely agree with the hon. Gentleman. We all know that there is a place for both. The hon. Gentleman will remember that it was a Labour Minister who introduced the associated...

British Airways Corporations (27 Oct 1953)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: Yes.

British Airways Corporations (27 Oct 1953)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: There is nothing to prevent the private operators from again applying for licences to do the same as before.

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Civil Aviation (Transfer of Functions) (8 Jul 1953)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: In my very short speech I shall not attempt to follow the points made by the previous speaker, except to say that I did not notice any personal attack upon the Minister. [HON. MEMBERS: "Oh."] We know that the Minister of Transport and his Parliamentary Secretary are very interested in aviation, and any attack that we are liable to make would be against their policy. I believe firmly that...

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Civil Aviation (Transfer of Functions) (8 Jul 1953)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: If the Minister did not make the case for economy, the White Paper does, and, presumably, he is responsible for the White Paper. Of course, we know that there will be no economy at all in this merger, and if there is an economy by using Ministry of Transport officials, surely there is redundancy at the moment in the Ministry of Transport. If I am wrong, perhaps the Minister will say so. Can...

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Civil Aviation (Transfer of Functions) (8 Jul 1953)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: If the hon. Member would like to be correct, I said that it was down-grading the Ministry of Civil Aviation.

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Civil Aviation (Transfer of Functions) (8 Jul 1953)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: If a Ministry becomes a Department and not a Ministry it is downgrading of that particular formation.

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Civil Aviation (Transfer of Functions) (8 Jul 1953)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: Surely these facts prove that we require a separate Minister for Civil Aviation.

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Civil Aviation (Transfer of Functions) (8 Jul 1953)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: I should like to thank the Minister for that explanation and also for his assurance that there is no question of economy. The Minister also said that there was no question of economy, and it can only be that this merger expects to get from the Ministry of Transport something which it has not got from the present set-up.

Orders of the Day — Air Estimates, 1953–54 (12 Mar 1953)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: Will the Minister tell us whether the Government have found it possible to make economies in any other direction but the Volunteer Reserve?

Orders of the Day — Air Estimates, 1953–54 (12 Mar 1953)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: I shall not follow the hon. and gallant Member for Wembley, North (Wing Commander Bullus), because we all agree with his sentiments, and especially with his comments on the aircraft industry and the excellence it has achieved since, and even before, the war. To those of us concerned with the defence of the country—and in these days who is not?—the Air Estimates have a particular...

Orders of the Day — Air Estimates, 1953–54 (12 Mar 1953)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: I am obliged to the hon. Gentleman. I thought he meant at home, and I agree that that is where we want them. I am sorry if I appear to be a little unsympathetic over the question of Service men's families. In fact, I am not. Only recently I saw my daughter-in-law off when she was going overseas to my son. But only a comparatively few families can go overseas, and I therefore regard it as a...

Orders of the Day — Transport Aircraft (12 Mar 1953)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: I hope my hon. Friend has not forgotten that exactly what he is saying could not be done was done in the Berlin airlift, when all types of equipment were moved successfully and without any difficulty.

Orders of the Day — Transport Aircraft (12 Mar 1953)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: The hon. Gentleman says that there were no pupils for the basic schools, yet he realises and says that we are sending pupils to America and Canada, and excused this on the grounds that it was at no cost to us. Even so, it is a bad thing to close our own units and send our men abroad.

Orders of the Day — Transport Aircraft (12 Mar 1953)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: The hon. Gentleman will realise that the personnel we are discussing are ex-Royal Air Force personnel.

Orders of the Day — Transport Aircraft (12 Mar 1953)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: They are not having much done for them.

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: asked the Minister of Food when he proposes to increase the sugar ration.

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Food: Sugar Ration (9 Mar 1953)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: Does not the Minister realise that the housewives are getting rather tired of being given bonuses like a lot of children and that what they want is an increase in the ration? Does not the Minister feel that the world sugar situation will now allow a general increase in the basic ration?
