Major Lyall Wilkes: Without wishing in any way to add to the amount of heat that has been generated, would it not be wise for the House to remember that, owing to the late formation in the course of the war of this force, through no fault of the Jewish people in Palestine, at the same time as the formation of the Brigade itself. 22,000 Jews were actually serving as attached forces to the British Army, with...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Raw Materials (1 Jul 1947)

Major Lyall Wilkes: Will my hon. Friend bear in mind that as the factory development scheme in the Development Areas becomes completed, it is a growing experience to find factories which have been built operating with nearly 20 or 25 per cent. reduction, owing to the shortage of raw material; and on the principle that Development Areas should get priority, does it not seem that, admirable as that principle is,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Surplus Stores, Aycliffe Trading Estate (15 May 1947)

Major Lyall Wilkes: Is the right hon. and learned Gentleman aware that the point of the matter is, that whilst these materials may be immediately surplus to the Aycliffe Trading Estate, they are not surplus to the over-all factory programme of the North-East coast, and that if they are denied to contractors they will be devoted to projects which, whilst being licensed projects, are certainly not of anything like...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Urea and Butyl Alcohol (17 Apr 1947)

Major Lyall Wilkes: asked the President of the Board of Trade why his Department refuses to disclose to industrialists the basis of the present allocation of urea and butyl alcohol; why British Resin Products, Limited, Vale Road East, Tonbridge, Kent, are receiving under the present allocation greater quantities of these substances than development area projects such as British Paints, Limited, Britannic...

Orders of the Day — Fire Services Bill (27 Mar 1947)

Major Lyall Wilkes: I was glad that my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Dudley (Colonel Wigg) referred to the insurance companies.

Orders of the Day — Defence (20 Mar 1947)

Major Lyall Wilkes: I have been given five minutes, very graciously, so the House will I hope forgive me if I rather hurry in what I have to say. The thing that worries me most is that in our arms policy in relation to manpower we are getting the worst of both worlds. We have been having our arms increasingly standardised with the United States of America during the last 12 months, which may be a good or a bad...

Orders of the Day — Defence (20 Mar 1947)

Major Lyall Wilkes: I quite agree. Nobody wants to dictate. Action must be on the basis of complete fellowship and comradeship.
