B.O.a.C. (Grants) (23 Mar 1950)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: I also wish to offer my congratulations to the Parliamentary Secretary who is not only a personal friend, but a pilot. His experience will I am sure help him tremendously in the problems he will meet in his new office. I have always had great sympathy with the Ministry of Civil Aviation, the Parliamentary Secretary and the boards of the Corporations. If they make a loss, there is a heap of...

B.O.a.C. (Grants) (23 Mar 1950)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: The noble Lord knows as well as I do that it would be very difficult economically to operate flying boats in this country, although it might be a good thing to do so from the point of view of the industry. I believe that there is a future in flying boats, but it will cost money. Are we prepared to accept the fact that it will cost money? Flying boat bases are very expensive, even though they...

B.O.a.C. (Grants) (23 Mar 1950)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: I do not think that there is any comparison. A flying boat base must be in an area where it is out of the way of shipping and so on, and it must be in sheltered waters. All these things must be considered in connection with a flying boat base; whereas a land base, once it is put down, is fit for operation probably for 300 or more days out of the 365. I do not think that the two things can be...

Orders of the Day — Air Estimates, 1950–51: MR. Arthur Henderson's Statement (21 Mar 1950)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: I am most fortunate to follow the hon. Member for Brentford and Chiswick (Mr. Lucas), who has just made his first speech in this Chamber. It was a speech which appealed strongly to many of us on both sides of the House, not only because of the sincerity and charm with which the hon. Member expressed himself, but also because of the knowledge which he showed. We remember the distinguished...

Orders of the Day — Air Estimates, 1950–51: MR. Arthur Henderson's Statement (21 Mar 1950)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: I do not personally object to any argument. I am stating what I think is an absolute fact, and it is that if we have a strong enough deterrent force, it may he that we shall not have the war which none of us wants. The logical conclusion to what I have said is that we should utilise the whole of our financial and manpower resources solely in the air and in this form of defence, that is, a...

Air Accident Inquiry (Minister's Comments) (1 Dec 1949)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: Does the right hon. and learned Gentleman realise that all those closely concerned with aviation recognise who is responsible, or who was responsible for this accident? [HON. MEMBERS: "Who was?"] Does he realise that the people who are concerned with aviation do not consider it was the responsibility of the ground personnel at Prestwick?

Orders of the Day — Civil Aviation (1 Mar 1949)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: Has my hon. Friend received advice about this? Is he satisfied that the concentration of all this maintenance at London Airport, and consequently the testing of the aircraft there, will be perfectly satisfactory, in view of the increased traffic at London Airport in any event? In other words, is he satisfied that the aircraft to be maintained there will be tested after their maintenance?

Orders of the Day — Civil Aviation (1 Mar 1949)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: On the Berlin airlift they will not be used as pressurised aircraft, which is an important consideration in regard to the question raised by the hon. and gallant Member for Central Glasgow.

Orders of the Day — Civil Aviation (1 Mar 1949)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: I am sure the hon. Member for West Middlesbrough (Mr. Geoffrey Cooper) was not suggesting that officers of the R.A.F. in Transport Command had any idea other than the safety of their passengers, and I am quite sure, therefore, that he would not wish to include those R.A.F. officers in his statement.

Orders of the Day — Civil Aviation (1 Mar 1949)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: I have only a short contribution to make to this Debate, but first I would like to follow the remarks of the hon. and gallant Member for South Blackpool (Mr. R. Robinson), who spoke so kindly of the committees of one of which I happened to be the chairman. I associate myself with what he said, not on my own behalf, but on behalf of the very distinguished individuals who for so many months sat...

Orders of the Day — Civil Aviation (1 Mar 1949)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: If I may proceed, I wanted to make that point in case the Parliamentary Secretary is not able to reply. The point is that now and in the future, provided we have efficient flying control, there should be no risk for passengers arriving at either of these airports. I would now refer to a question which has been mentioned so frequently, that of personnel. The names of Mr. d'Erlanger and Lord...

Orders of the Day — Safety of Employment (Employers' Liability) Bill (11 Feb 1949)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: I should have liked to support the Bill, and I have been most interested in reading and studying it but it contains to my mind one or two serious deficiencies—so serious that I think this subject should be dealt with at a later stage by the Government. I am very much disturbed by the thought that if we introduce by legislation statutory limitations to too great an extent, they will take...

Orders of the Day — Safety of Employment (Employers' Liability) Bill (11 Feb 1949)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: I will give my hon. Friend an opportunity of replying, but perhaps he will first allow me to amplify what I was saying. I heard him say on one or two occasions that if there had been no negligence by the employer, the employee was entitled only to compensation, within the Workmen's Compensation Act, and I believe this is so. Therefore, if an employee is injured, and the employer has not shown...

Orders of the Day — Russia and U.S.a. (Relations) (8 Nov 1948)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: I am very glad to be able to intervene in this interesting Debate. The hon. Member for South Ayrshire (Mr. Emrys Hughes) approached this subject from entirely the wrong angle. He appeared to me to be under the impression that we and also America desire a war. I feel that he came to that conclusion because we were taking responsible measures to re-arm, to introduce military service and so on....

Defence (23 Sep 1948)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: I am following a very practical speech by the hon. Member for Holborn (Mr. Aitken), who has considerable experience in these matters, and, in particular, I should like to endorse what he says about the shortage of aircraft, which I hope the Secretary of State for Air has noted. What has happened to our aeroplanes is a matter that puzzles everyone concerned with air matters. It is, after all,...

Defence (23 Sep 1948)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: I should like to take this opportunity to pay my tribute to the Reserves. We have rather ignored these Reserves; we always do when wars are over. We owe a very heavy debt of gratitude to the Reserves of the last war—those of the R.A.F., the Army, the Territorials, and the Navy—a debt which has never been adequately expressed either in this House or anywhere else. As far as the Air Force...

Education (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill: Emigration (18 Jun 1948)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: The question of emigration has recently been the subject of various Questions in the House and, indeed, a very interesting Debate in another place took place quite recently. I raise the matter now because there are certain very important factors which, to my mind, require immediate consideration. It can be argued, and is argued, that every able-bodied man and woman who leaves our shores at...

Education (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill: Emigration (18 Jun 1948)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: I was, of course, referring to general directions, and was not suggesting for one moment that the Government should direct people against their will. It is after people have decided to go that the Government should come in and direct how they should go and so on.

Education (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill: Emigration (18 Jun 1948)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: rose—

Education (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill: Emigration (18 Jun 1948)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: Surely my hon. Friend knows that at least 200,000 people crossed the Atlantic by air, and that the Canadian Government are now arranging for them all to go by air.
