Orders of the Day — Supply.: Home Office (16 Jul 1935)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: May I say how warmly I welcome the right hon. Gentleman in his new capacity after exactly a 20 years' absence from the Home Office? In almost his first speech as Home Secretary he claimed that he was new to Departmental work. On that occasion he dealt with much the same subjects as to-day—anti-aircraft defences, alien refugees, the Children Act. The same subjects are still uppermost in our...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Home Office (16 Jul 1935)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I particularly regret that I cannot mention them, because juvenile crime could be stopped by an extension of these schools as in no other way, and I hope that the magistrates of the children's courts, to whom the right hon. Gentleman paid a deserved tribute, will be given at a very early date a copy of the Home Office handbook dealing with the approved schools. No report of their work has...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Home Office (16 Jul 1935)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I beg pardon. I hope that the right hon. Gentleman will revise and republish the Statutory Rules and Orders and such other documents as are within his purview, upon which the police and magistrates necessarily depend. I should have liked to have spoken on the question of the circular regarding defence against air attack, but so much has been said already, and in such ill-humour, that I...

Orders of the Day — MONEY PAYMENTS (JUSTICES PROCEDURE) BILL [Lords]. (26 Jul 1935)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I am much obliged to the right hon. Gentleman, and I accept his assurance without the smallest hesitation or doubt. A circular from the Home Office such as he suggests will unquestionably have almost as great an effect as the Act itself. He clearly indicated in his opening speech that more has to be done, and I beg him, before we pass the Bill, to give us some definite assurance that this is...

Orders of the Day — RESTRICTION OF RIBBON DEVELOPMENT BILL [Lords].: Clause 1. — (Power to adopt standard widths for roads.) (29 Jul 1935)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: In thanking the Minister for this valuable concession, I should like to point out that the Postmaster-General's telephone poles are by far the most serious obstacle to the use of the verges of roads. These poles are being put up in increasing numbers close to the verges, or within six inches of them, and unless the Postmaster-General seeks fresh powers to take telephone wires across country...

Orders of the Day — RESTRICTION OF RIBBON DEVELOPMENT BILL [Lords].: Clause 2. — (Restriction, of building development along frontages of certain roads.) (29 Jul 1935)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I would like to speak in support of the Amendment, as my name is attached to it. The planning authorities are selected on a much wider basis than the highway authorities. Very frequently they cover a wider area than the highway authorities, and in view of all that has been said they seem to me to be the obvious bodies to which this question should be referred if possible. I can see no serious...

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: My right hon. Friend the Minister of Transport has explained very lucidly the difference between him and the Committee upstairs. His main point, which, if he will pardon me for saying so, he has made much more cogently than a fortnight ago, is that quarter and petty sessions are not suitable tribunals for trying any quasi-administrative or quasi-judicial question. The submission that I wish...

Foreign Affairs. (24 Feb 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: In 1925 he regarded it as moribund, and it has been regarded as obsolescent ever' since. Once America dropped out, the compulsory powers of the Covenant, to my mind, fell to the ground. We have heard much this evening about the importance of applying immediate compulsion: it is claimed that we are bound by our bond to apply Article 16. If I thought that we were bound by honour and our bond to...

Foreign Affairs. (24 Feb 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I am glad to have the recognition of at least one hon. Member that we did lead Abyssinia into the war. I am bound to remind the hon. Member for Everton (Mr. Kirby) that the quotation I read was made with the full approval of Sir Edward Grey on 4th August, 1914.
