Orders of the Day — Maintenance Orders (Enforcement) (9 Mar 1949)

Major Lyall Wilkes: In the vast majority of cases the obligation is not to the court but merely to the wife. If the court had power to make another obligation, to record the man's address, it might be more of a deterrent.

Oral Answers to Questions — Festival of Britain (23 Feb 1949)

Major Lyall Wilkes: Can the Lord President of the Council say how long it is intended that this exhibition should be shown in Newcastle?

Oral Answers to Questions — Civil Aviation: Airport Development Schemes (23 Feb 1949)

Major Lyall Wilkes: asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Civil Aviation why successive proposed schemes to develop Woolsington Airport, Newcastle-on-Tyne, for continental traffic, at a cost of £450,000, and a subsequent revised scheme costing £140,000, were both refused sanction and grant-in-aid when permission for other airport development schemes, including that at Ringway, Manchester, have...

Oral Answers to Questions — Civil Aviation: Airport Development Schemes (23 Feb 1949)

Major Lyall Wilkes: Whilst I appreciate the limitations put upon airport development schemes by reason of cuts in the capital investment programme, will my hon. Friend bear in mind that at present the North-East coast of England is entirely without any air communication with Scandinavia and that that part of the country feels rather neglected as a result?

Orders of the Day — Princess Elizabeth's and Duke of Edinburgh's Annuities Bill: Capital Investment (White Paper) (18 Dec 1947)

Major Lyall Wilkes: If the solution of this crisis that faces us lay wholly with the people in this country, I must confess that I should be feeling more easy in my mind than I do tonight; but the serious fact is that, until there is a better relationship between the world price levels for food and raw materials and those of manufactured products, so long as there is no better relationship than has existed...

Orders of the Day — Princess Elizabeth's and Duke of Edinburgh's Annuities Bill: Capital Investment (White Paper) (18 Dec 1947)

Major Lyall Wilkes: The real, grim nature of our crisis is the fact that, though we are producing more steel than ever before, more coal than for many years past, 15 per cent. more foodstuffs than in 1938, and manufacturing 38,000 railway wagons a year instead of 25,000 railway wagons a year, as before the war—although, in other words, the whole economic machine is working much faster and more efficiently than...

Orders of the Day — Princess Elizabeth's and Duke of Edinburgh's Annuities Bill: Capital Investment (White Paper) (18 Dec 1947)

Major Lyall Wilkes: They have been encouraged, but there has been difficulty about the financial grants. Local authorities have been backward in many parts of the development areas. I suggest that on many occasions the local authori- ties might well have had a prod from the Government to get on with this work, but that lead has not been given. Local authorities are no more perfect than Government Departments,...

Orders of the Day — Princess Elizabeth's and Duke of Edinburgh's Annuities Bill: Capital Investment (White Paper) (18 Dec 1947)

Major Lyall Wilkes: The "Economist" did not mean that. They were talking about the expenditure of the raw materials and the houses actually built. To hearten the Minister of Health and to bring this Debate from the general to the specific, I would point out that in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, between 1918 and the beginning of 1921, not a single house was built for renting within the city's boundaries. In 1924, there...

Oral Answers to Questions — Civil Aviation: Airfield Construction Schemes (10 Dec 1947)

Major Lyall Wilkes: asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Civil Aviation whether cuts in the capital investment programme, necessitating delay in airfield construction schemes, make any distinction as regards schemes within development areas, similar to the factory-building priorities which have been retained by the Government.

Oral Answers to Questions — Civil Aviation: Airfield Construction Schemes (10 Dec 1947)

Major Lyall Wilkes: Is the Parliamentary Secretary aware his decision means that in the North-East development area we shall not have any direct air route with the continent, especially with Scandinavia and Belgium, where Tyneside did most of the prewar trade, for at least three and, possibly, four or five years.

Book Imports (Restrictions) (4 Dec 1947)

Major Lyall Wilkes: I would like to follow up a point made by the last speaker and say that one of the most serious factors in the present situation is the shortage of medical textbooks in our medical faculties. I have had representations made to me, as I am sure the Parliamentary Secretary has had, from the heads of medical faculties to say that we in this country are in grave danger of falling behind others...

Oral Answers to Questions — Palestine: Arms and Ammunition (29 Oct 1947)

Major Lyall Wilkes: In view of the fact that at present we have military missions in all the major Arab countries and that there is a constant flow of supplies to them, and in view also of the fact that on 14th May last the Minister of Defence informed me that we have recently supplied 40 military aircraft, 298 carriers, and 38 scout cars to one of those countries, is it not time that a review was made of that...

Oral Answers to Questions — Kenya: Trade Union Officers (29 Oct 1947)

Major Lyall Wilkes: asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what is the number of African trades union leaders in Kenya who have been arrested within the last 12 months; for what offences they have been arrested; how many trades union officers from the United Kingdom are now working in Kenya; and what recommendations they have made to improve the situation.

Oral Answers to Questions — National Insurance (Family Allowances) (11 Aug 1947)

Major Lyall Wilkes: asked the Minister of National Insurance where after a wife's death family allowances accordingly become payable to the surviving father, in circumstances where the children after the mother's death are cared for by another person, if he will consider giving the local police courts a discretion to make an order directing the family allowances to be paid to such other person on application.

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Middle East and Europe (U.K. Expenditure) (5 Aug 1947)

Major Lyall Wilkes: Would not the Chancellor agree that when these figures are published, they will show that this country has had more than its fair share in financing the recovery of law and order abroad, and that the more publication these figures have in the United States of America, the better it would be?

Orders of the Day — Colonial Empire (Manpower) (5 Aug 1947)

Major Lyall Wilkes: This Debate has revealed a very general anxiety from both sides of the House lest the Colonial Office and the War Office between them should be losing an immense opportunity through a lack of imaginative approach in this matter. During the Debate on the Army Estimates attention was drawn to the fact that a proposed run-down of Colonial Forces was planned, from 329,000 in 1946–47 to 87,300...

Oral Answers to Questions — Colonial Empire: Parliamentary Delegations (30 Jul 1947)

Major Lyall Wilkes: Will my right hon. Friend bear in mind that during the last year 114 Members of this House visited European countries, and that while it is very important Members should visit European countries, that it is equally important that they should be given an opportunity to visit the Colonial Empire? Will he see that more facilities are given in future to Members to visit the 60 million people for...

Oral Answers to Questions — Colonial Empire: Parliamentary Delegations (30 Jul 1947)

Major Lyall Wilkes: asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies how many parliamentary delegations to the Colonial Empire are planned for the next 12 months; and whether he will bear in mind the great benefit to be derived from delegations which include Members with trade union experience who can advise on trade union problems and policy within the Colonial Empire.
