Foreign Affairs. (24 Feb 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I deny altogther that we were compelled by our bond or our honour to apply sanctions in November, after the League of Nations made its declaration. There is nothing whatever in Article 16 which tells to take action unless everybody else does so. Sanctions have failed—they have failed in the case of Italy and they will fail elsewhere. Sanctions have done nothing to save the unfortunate...

Private Business.: Supply. (5 Mar 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: We ought to know from the Home Office what are the actual overhead costs. In every annual report issued by the Home Office on this subject for the last five years, there appears the statement that in order to compute the total charge it would be necessary to take into account administrative expenditure, medical and legal costs, and what is placed to reserve and profits accounts. Of these...

Orders of the Day — Medicines and Surgical Appliances (Advertisement) Bill. (27 Mar 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: And possibly live longer. I have complained that the Bill does not touch anything like the so-called cures that it should. It does not touch the cures for asthma, bronchitis, influenza and the common cold; or the cures for too much flesh and too little—a very common source of illness on the part of those who take drugs to meet those conditions, as few of us are aware from personal...

Orders of the Day — Medicines and Surgical Appliances (Advertisement) Bill. (27 Mar 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I have taken competent advice on the point, and I am assured that any advertisement of means for procuring a miscarriage, even by implication, would certainly result in conviction in a court of law. I doubt whether it has ever been tried, but I am certain that no court would hesitate, if the implication were clear, to convict under Section 59 of the Act of 1861, read in conjunction with the...

Orders of the Day — Medicines and Surgical Appliances (Advertisement) Bill. (27 Mar 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: If it does not refer to that to what does it refer? Is it a reference to debility? In the same paragraph claims to promote sexual virility in men are also prohibited. Is that desirable? Is it not perfectly natural and desirable that young men who hope some day to marry should look to physical training and physical exercises to increase the natural and proper functions of the human body? It...

Orders of the Day — Medicines and Surgical Appliances (Advertisement) Bill. (27 Mar 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: Thu suggestion "Beer is best" seems to be contrary to the provisions of the Bill, and there are innumerable advertisements which would be in like case. I will not attempt to arouse the mirth of the House by quoting some that would unquestionably be illegal if the definitions in the Bill were maintained. Clause 2 is drawn so as to include the proprietor, vendor or distributor, but not the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treaties (English Language). (6 Apr 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: Is it not a fact that the translation in this case was not made in Great Britain by the Foreign Office but at Geneva by the officials of the League, and would it not be possible to ensure that translations in future are made by officials of the Foreign Office and not by League officials, who are not responsible to His Majesty's Government?

Orders of the Day — Ways and Means.: Amendment of Law. (23 Apr 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I find it difficult to believe that it will be of permanent bene- fit to South Wales. There is a Committee sitting upstairs on the subject, and there are persons far better qualified than we are to consider the pros and cons of the scheme. We do not wish to indulge in works programmes simply for the sake of finding work. Work ought to be undertaken and considered from the national point of...

Orders of the Day — Ways and Means.: Amendment of Law. (23 Apr 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I am speaking of the probable effect of the increase of the allowances to the Income Tax paying classes who are affected. The Income Tax limit is now low, and I hope it may some day be raised. There are 500,000 children in receipt of domiciliary relief out of the total of 10,000,000 children in the land. It is true that we have not yet devised any system of family allowances for those below...
