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

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: I really must ask my hon. Friend to let me say that said nothing about that. He cannot find anything in what I said to suggest that England is weak.

Oral Answers to Questions — Civil Aviation: B.O.A.C. Atlantic Services (Base) (21 Apr 1948)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: Does the Parliamentary Secretary realise that it is not necessary to have hangar accommodation to maintain these large aircraft, and that during the war aircraft of this type were maintained quite satisfactorily in the open by the Royal Air Force?

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Purchase Tax (11 Mar 1948)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is aware of the abuse that is occurring in the printing trade as a result of purchase tax being charged only by those printers whose annual turnover is over £500 of taxable printing; and whether he will take steps to adjust this.

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Purchase Tax (11 Mar 1948)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: Does my right hon. Friend realise that the small printer is at a very great advantage and that he is undercutting the larger printer, which is causing very much dissatisfaction, because the larger printer usually employs trade union men?

Orders of the Day — Air Estimates, 1948–49 (4 Mar 1948)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: One must agree with much of what the right hon. Member for Bromley (Mr. H. Macmillan) said. Except for his preamble and, perhaps, his peroration, which was his contribution to party politics, I feel that he has said today what many of us who have the Royal Air Force very much at heart feel about the future. I must refer to one of his comments. He said that America today is keeping a very...

Orders of the Day — Air Estimates, 1948–49 (4 Mar 1948)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: The hon. Member will recognise that though £160,000 may be spent on these weather ships, that still leaves over £500,000 spent on ordinary marine craft, a ridiculous sum.

Orders of the Day — Civil Aviation (26 Feb 1948)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: I am sure hon. Members are glad that we have got back to a discussion on civil aviation. We do not want to compare Corporations one with another, and it is known in this House and everywhere in this country that any British airline is as good as any other in the world, be it American or anything else. In the few moments at my disposal I do not intend to criticise in detail the losses of the...

Orders of the Day — Civil Aviation (26 Feb 1948)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: I now wish to say a word or two about the aircraft position, because that is the most difficult question which the Corporations have to face. I do not propose to explore the matter in detail, because it has been very well covered today. His Majesty's Government must come to an immediate decision on aircraft. Those of us who are concerned with aircraft operation are convinced that eventually...

Orders of the Day — Civil Aviation (26 Feb 1948)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: I think the hon. and gallant Gentleman is quite right, but I think it would be fair to say that the Corporations have not entered into charter work in a big way. I do not believe they have embarrassed the charter companies, but these companies fear that the Corporations may find that they will have to branch out into charter work if they cannot make their regular scheduled services pay. I...

Orders of the Day — National Service Bill: Clause 1. — (Liability to be called up for service.) (7 May 1947)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: The question of whether the period of service should be 12 months or 18 months must be solely one of opinion. Hon. Members on all sides of the Committee have agreed that, generally speaking, it is not possible to train men to a high state of efficiency or proficiency in 12 months or x8 months. In this matter of training, we must separate technical men and non-technical men. The non-technical...

Orders of the Day — Supply: British Civil Aircraft (24 Apr 1947)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: So many points which I would have touched upon nave been so excellently dealt with on both sides of the House, that I can be quite brief, and merely put a few questions to the Minister. First, I must declare that I am interested in the operating side of aircraft—very interested indeed, having been connected with it for many years. My first question is a policy question. I do not know, and...

Orders of the Day — Supply: British Civil Aircraft (24 Apr 1947)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: I agree with that, but I do not think that the aircraft industry should, on its own side, be too smug. There is room for improvement in the aircraft industry and in many concerns, and I am sure that it is within the knowledge of the hon. and gallant Member that the Government had to step in, in some instances, during the war and take control.

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?

Oral Answers to Questions — Armed Forces: Naval Air Arm (2 Apr 1947)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: asked the Minister of Defence whether, in the interest of economy, both of manpower and money, he will arrange for the R.A.F. to assume responsibility for the flying training of Naval Air Arm personnel and the maintenance of naval aircraft when ashore, and the shore naval bases now controlled by the Naval Air Arm to be transferred to the R.A.F.

Oral Answers to Questions — Armed Forces: Naval Air Arm (2 Apr 1947)

Group Captain Clifford Wilcock: Is the Minister aware that there is duplication in the shore establishments, which must result in a wastage of manpower? Would he undertake to consider this in the light of evidence that I will bring to his notice?

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.

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...
