Defence (5 Mar 1952)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: I made no suggestion that we should have aircraft which would not return. I do not know where my hon. Friend got that idea from. My object in talking about this bomber is to suggest that it would be a deterrent to war. My hon. Friend should get that into his mind. It is from strength and not from weakness that we shall succeed in achieving peace. My hon. Friend will remember that at the...

Defence (5 Mar 1952)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: My hon. Friend's last remark answers his question. That is exactly the way to convince people that war is not worth while. I claim to have done as much as my hon. Friend for peace as well as for the safety of this country.

Defence (5 Mar 1952)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: There appears to be great confusion in the hon. Member's mind. He is confusing two different subjects. I am dealing with a deterrent to war. Recently there was comment in the Press that £200 million is to be spent on the construction of airfields in Europe, and £30 million is to be subscribed by this country. That is a fundamental error. The policy is entirely wrong. The strategically...

Oral Answers to Questions — Helicopter Development (28 Nov 1951)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: Will the Minister consider the advisability of encouraging local authorities, in their planning for the future, to earmark alighting sites in their towns?

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Operations, Korea (Commonwealth Troops) (15 Nov 1951)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: asked the Prime Minister if he will make representations to the United Nations Commander in Korea to refrain from committing troops of the Commonwealth Brigade in offensive action while the Armistice Commission is in session.

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Operations, Korea (Commonwealth Troops) (15 Nov 1951)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: While thanking the Prime Minister for that reply, may I ask him whether he agrees that operations other than those of a purely defensive nature create an atmosphere in which it is impracticable to carry on successful negotiations to an armistice? Further, does not the Prime Minister agree that casualties at such a time are particularly distressing and, in view of these circumstances, will he...

Civil Aviation (19 Mar 1951)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: If the hon. Member had been in the House during the passage of the Bill, he would have found Members opposite were pressing all the time for a profit to be made by the Corporations. Many of us feel that it is quite wrong for the Corporations to do charter work, but, as my hon. Friend has said, Members opposite cannot have it both ways. If they are continually pressing for a profit to be made,...

Civil Aviation (19 Mar 1951)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: I should like first of all to congratulate the hon. Member for Worcester (Mr. Ward) on the speech which he made in opening this debate. I sensed in that speech a different spirit from that which we have had in the past from the Opposition. In the past it has been a continual policy of criticising the Corporations about the losses that have been made and this has not assisted those who have...

Civil Aviation (19 Mar 1951)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: Oh, yes, because it must have been known that if business people are at the head of these Corporations, they will obviously use their aircraft and staff to the best possible advantage. Hon. Members who are also connected with aviation would have done precisely the same. If there is one job to be done, and that is to make the Corporations pay, it is done irrespective of outside interests...

Civil Aviation (19 Mar 1951)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: I think we are in agreement about this. I want to come to another point which was raised by the hon. Member. He spoke about the future of civil aviation in the unfortunate event of hostilities. It is a very important matter in my view, because civil aviation, including the charter companies, are the first reserve of the Royal Air Force. There is the reserve of aircraft and air crews, and...

Teaching Profession (Communist Activities) (8 Nov 1950)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: Name one school.

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Works: Rheumatoid Arthritis (Treatment) (23 Oct 1950)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: Is my right hon. Friend aware that the treatment of this disease by cortisone is very much in the experimental stage, and is proving to have serious effects on patients, particularly women? In view of that fact will my right hon. Friend assure the House that this drug will not yet be made available to the public?

Orders of the Day — Defence (Government Proposals) (13 Sep 1950)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: The hon. Member is wrong.

Orders of the Day — Defence (Government Proposals) (13 Sep 1950)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: In order that we may have my hon. Friend's arguments quite clear, does he state that the North Koreans did not attack and come down lower than the 38th parallel? Are they not now lower than the 38th parallel?

Orders of the Day — Defence (26 Jul 1950)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: I would not, of course, follow the line of argument of the hon. Member for Renfrew, West (Mr. Maclay) who has specialised knowledge of the subject which he has been debating. Before I make my contribution to the Debate I would like to comment upon a remark which was made by the right hon. Gentleman the Leader of the Liberal Party and by other Members on that side of the House, in relation to...

Orders of the Day — Defence (26 Jul 1950)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: The right hon. Gentleman the Member for Warwick and Leamington made a most valuable contribution to the Debate when he said that the factor of primary importance was pay and conditions in the Services today. I believe that it is solely pay. Conditions in general are good and the mere fact that another bedside table may be produced, will not affect recruiting. The one thing which will affect...

Orders of the Day — Defence (26 Jul 1950)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: I presume, therefore, that the Prime Minister, who will be replying to the Debate, will not wish to give any further information on that point. Like other hon. Members, I think that the matter we are discussing tonight is either vitally important or it is not. We are either in a state of emergency or we are not. If we are in a state of emergency, I want to see emergency measures taken. One of...

Oral Answers to Questions — British Army: Bugle Calls, Wellington Barracks (16 May 1950)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: asked the Secretary of State for War whether he will at least discontinue the blowing of bugles at Wellington Barracks at the times for getting up, having dinner, and going to bed, in view of the fact that the appropriate times for each are common knowledge.

Oral Answers to Questions — British Army: Bugle Calls, Wellington Barracks (16 May 1950)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: Is my right hon. Friend aware that this nuisance is not confined to Wellington Barracks, but applies to all the other barracks in London? Could not this barbarian uproar be restricted to emergency calls and not created just to convey to His Majesty's guard that it is time to get up or to go to dinner? Nobody objects to the emergency call, but only to the ordinary call.

Scientific Resources (Utilisation) (5 May 1950)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: I am sure that all of us are grateful to the proposer of this Motion, because it is a subject which is fairly nevi to the House and of great importance. I will not follow the arguments of the hon. Member for Mitcham (Mr. Carr) other than to say that I, and I think most hon. Members here, fully agree with practically everything he said. We agree with the sentiments he has expressed, in our...
