Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Works: Requisitioned Property (26 Feb 1946)

Major Lyall Wilkes: While one agrees that the necessities of war sometimes make it necessary to hand over the property of industrial firms to a Government Department, has not the time arisen when all firms, only too anxious to restart peacetime production, should have their premises requisitioned by a Government Department only in the most exceptional circumstances?

Bill Presented: Foreign Affairs (20 Feb 1946)

Major Lyall Wilkes: The hon. Member for Montrose Burghs (Mr. Maclay) proved adept at letting drop a few tasty morsels for discussion.

Bill Presented: Foreign Affairs (20 Feb 1946)

Major Lyall Wilkes: Since His Majesty's Government are committed to the arming and provision of tanks and other weapons for the Greek army, is it not a matter of some interest to the Government and their military advisers whether or not the leading officers in the Greek Army are men who have had a collaborationist past during the German occupation?
