Orders of the Day — VOLUNTARY HOSPITALS (PAYING PATIENTS) BILL [Lords].: Clause 2., — (Accommodation for and charges to paying patients.) (8 May 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I beg to move, in page 2, line 7, after "may" insert, "with the consent of the Ministry of Health." This Amendment raises a very important point which has not been considered either on the Second Reading of the Bill or in Standing Committee. The Bill was read a Second time without any hon. Member rising to debate it, and in Standing Committee it was passed without a Division after a few...

Orders of the Day — VOLUNTARY HOSPITALS (PAYING PATIENTS) BILL [Lords].: Clause 2., — (Accommodation for and charges to paying patients.) (8 May 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: It is true that I did not put down these Amendments until last night, but that was through no desire for obstruction and no feeling of contumacy, but simple; because the report of the proceedings in Committee had not reached me in printed form. Only after some trouble was I able to unearth it from the archives of the Library in manuscript. Upon reading it, I found that this point had been...

Orders of the Day — VOLUNTARY HOSPITALS (PAYING PATIENTS) BILL [Lords].: Clause 2., — (Accommodation for and charges to paying patients.) (8 May 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I beg to move, in page 2, line 26, after "to," to insert: the county or borough council in whose area the hospital is situated and This Amendment raises the point which has already been referred to by my hon. Friend the Member for South-West Bethnal Green (Sir P. Harris), and its object is to give the local authorities some say in the matter before the Charity Commissioners exercise their...

Orders of the Day — VOLUNTARY HOSPITALS (PAYING PATIENTS) BILL [Lords].: Clause 2., — (Accommodation for and charges to paying patients.) (8 May 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: The promoter of the Bill has made it clear that the consultation with local authorities, which is generally desired, is possible and would be arranged if necessary by the Charity Commissioners under the last two lines of the Clause. That being the case, I do not propose to press the Amendment, but I beg the House to realise that this Debate has served a useful purpose because it has made...

Orders of the Day — VOLUNTARY HOSPITALS (PAYING PATIENTS) BILL [Lords].: Clause 5. — (Power to Charity Commiss- ioners to make rules.) (8 May 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I beg to move, in page 4, line 27, at the end, to insert: and shall be notified in the London Gazette and in such local papers as the Charity Commissioners may direct. The principle underlying this Amendment was discussed not long ago on the Ribbon Development Act, and I think from what was said then that there is a strong case for giving the public at large information as to what is being...

Orders of the Day — VOLUNTARY HOSPITALS (PAYING PATIENTS) BILL [Lords].: Clause 5. — (Power to Charity Commiss- ioners to make rules.) (8 May 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: It must be many years since any hon. Member has presented twin Bills to the House on a single Friday, with every prospect of seeing them both passed the same afternoon, and I should like to join with my hon. Friend the Member for Westhoughton (Mr. Rhys Davies) in congratulating the promoter on two exceedingly healthy twins. But there is one serious defect which I will mention. I regret that I...

Orders of the Day — Road Traffic (Driving Licences) Bill.: New Clause. — (Notices for renewal of licences.) (8 May 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I beg to move, "That the Clause be read a Second time." It has been a very widespread difficulty on every Bench in the Kingdom for many years past that licences are renewed on any date. Men and women absentmindedly forget to renew their licences and drive for six months or even a year—I have known a case of so driving, for as long as 18 months—without making any attempt to renew their...

Orders of the Day — Road Traffic (Driving Licences) Bill.: New Clause. — (Notices for renewal of licences.) (8 May 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: Will the hon. Member indicate the authority under which the Minister can act in this matter?

Orders of the Day — Road Traffic (Driving Licences) Bill.: New Clause. — (Notices for renewal of licences.) (8 May 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: In view of the most satisfactory statement of the Parliamentary Secretary, for which I thank him, I beg to ask leave to withdraw the Amendment. Motion and Clause, by leave, withdrawn.

Orders of the Day — Road Traffic (Driving Licences) Bill.: New Clause. — (Date of expiry of licences.) (8 May 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I beg to move, "That the Clause be read a Second time." This proposal provides that as from January next the issue of driving licences shall be standardised so as to begin from a particular date, 1st April until 31st March, so that motorists will readily know when their licence expires. I admit that the new Clause is far less necessary in view of the undertaking given by the Parliamentary...

Orders of the Day — Road Traffic (Driving Licences) Bill.: New Clause. — (Date of expiry of licences.) (8 May 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: With your permission, Mr. Deputy-Speaker, I beg to ask leave of the House to withdraw the Clause. I hope they will continue to consider the importance of making administrative changes in the issue of licences by county councils by regulations that will make them uniform for the whole of England and Wales and not peculiar to any particlar county. Motion and Clause, by leave, withdrawn.

Orders of the Day — Road Traffic (Driving Licences) Bill.: CLAUSE 1. (Extension of steersmen from certain provisions as to issue of licences.) (8 May 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I beg to second the Amendment. I have seen five or six accidents in my own constituency in the past six months, two of them serious, and in each case fatal, and in each case the direct consequence of some failure on the part of the steersman or the steering gear of the rear vehicle, and I feel that there is at least as strong a case for these men being licensed as for the ordinary lorry...

Orders of the Day — Road Traffic (Driving Licences) Bill.: CLAUSE 1. (Extension of steersmen from certain provisions as to issue of licences.) (8 May 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I beg to second the Amendment. I support the Amendment on the grounds set forth in the concluding portion of the speech, that these showmen are constantly travelling through large towns and turning and reversing in the main streets with their heavy vehicles. They are a public danger unless they are brought under regulations like any other traffic in the streets. They have to go through...

Orders of the Day — Road Traffic (Driving Licences) Bill.: Clause 2. — (Issue of provisional licences with a view to testing of heavy vehicle drivers.) (8 May 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I beg to second the Amendment. My reasons are the same as those put forward by the hon. Member for Henley (Sir G. Fox). These licences cost too much. They are a heavy burden on the young men who are the next generation of drivers, and who have to go to their employers and ask them for a loan, which may be as much as a whole week's wages, to enable them to pay for the licence to drive. We...

Orders of the Day — Road Traffic (Driving Licences) Bill.: Clause 2. — (Issue of provisional licences with a view to testing of heavy vehicle drivers.) (8 May 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I take the same view. We ought to have some sort of explanation, because thousands of His Majesty's subjects will be affected by the Bill, and it ought not to pass us without a word.

Orders of the Day — Shops (Sunday Trading Restriction) Bill.: First Schedule.. — (Trades and Businesses exempted from the Provisions of Section One). (8 May 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: In the few moments which are left to the House, I wish to place before hon. Members the considerations which have led me and other Members consistently to oppose the Bill in accordance with principles which are well-founded, and well-grounded in experience. The Bill gives the right to Jewish traders to open on Sunday, provided that they close their shops on Saturday, and sign a statutory...

Orders of the Day — Shops (Sunday Trading Restriction) Bill.: First Schedule.. — (Trades and Businesses exempted from the Provisions of Section One). (8 May 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: It will, in fact, increase the opportunity for trading on the Sabbath. With these words I beg to express my hope that the House will vote against the Bill. Question put, and agreed to. Bill accordingly read the Third time, and passed.

Oral Answers to Questions — British Broadcasting Corporation. (19 May 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: Is the Postmaster-General aware of the great importance that is attached to this question both in Broadcasting House and elsewhere?

Coal Mines Act, 1930. (24 Jun 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I beg to move, in line 1, to leave out from "That," to the end of the Question, and to add instead thereof: the consideration of the draft of the Central (Coal Mines) Scheme (Amendment) Order, 1936, be postponed until the Coal Mines Act, 1930, has been amended so as to provide adequate safeguards for the consumers. When this Amendment appeared on the Paper it was received with a clamorous...
