Protection of Birds Bill. (8 Nov 1933)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I beg leave to present to this Honourable House a Petition, signed by more than 59,000 persons, drawn from very many parts of the United Kingdom, begging that the Protection of Birds Bill may be recommitted by this Honourable House to a Select Committee. They represent that the Bill in its present form will not, in fact, promote the object for which it is intended, namely, prevention of...

Orders of the Day — Schedule. (14 Nov 1933)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I should be very reluctant to rise to deal with a subject of which I have very little personal knowledge but for the fact that I was unexpectedly charged, in the absence of a number of other hon. Members, with the responsibility of presenting to this House a petition, signed by 59,000 persons, against the Bill. The grounds of that petition have been so amply covered by the hon. Member for...

Orders of the Day — Schedule. (14 Nov 1933)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: It was perhaps accepted in that place, but it has been stated very freely elsewhere that no trapper could possibly carry on his vocation if he lost 90 per cent. of the birds. We had a moving reference to what goes on at Club Row. Al] that I can say is that the existing law is adequate to deal with such abominations. The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is not backward,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Imported News Film (Withdrawal). (4 Dec 1933)

Orders of the Day — Matrimonial Causes Bill. (2 Feb 1934)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I beg to second the Motion. I am very conscious that I am both ill qualified and insufficiently prepared to do so, and only the strongest and deepest conviction would induce me to intervene in a discussion of this sort upon a matter of such grave importance. We have heard from the hon. and learned Member some details of the origins and the inception of the Bill, and of the Royal Commission,...

Orders of the Day — Matrimonial Causes Bill. (2 Feb 1934)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I apologise to the hon. and learned Gentleman. I can scarcely imagine it possible that this House would be dictated to by any authority, however eminent. But, descended as I am from three generations of clergymen of the Church of England, I am far from underrating the importance of the ecclesiastical aspect. I believe it to be of vast importance to the country as a whole that this House...

Orders of the Day — Unemployment Bill.: Clause 36. — (Provision and maintenance of training courses.) (20 Feb 1934)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I appeal to the Minister to give this Amendment favourable consideration. It is within my knowledge that there is some anxiety among trainees as to whether or not they would receive fair compensation in the event of an accident. I know that at every centre a careful record is kept of every accident however trifling and that very few accidents actually occur. But some accidents do happen,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport.: Telephone Poles. (1 Mar 1934)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: 66. asked the Minister of Transport whether he is aware that the proximity of telephone poles to the metalled road is the main reason why loaded lorries and other vehicles, especially in foggy weather, do not keep close to the side of the road; and whether he will, in agreement with the Postmaster-General, promote an arrangement whereby the Post Office authorities keep all such posts painted...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport.: Telephone Poles. (1 Mar 1934)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: 67. asked the Minister of Transport whether his attention has been called to the numerous fatal and non-fatal accidents due to the existence of telephone poles close to metalled roads on land which has been dedicated to the public as a highway; and whether he will take steps, in agreement with the Postmaster-General, to secure that no such poles shall in future be erected within three feet of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport.: Telephone Poles. (1 Mar 1934)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: Will my hon. Friend bear in mind that there is no foreign country in Europe where the roads are obstructed in this way; and will he consider further the possibility of ameliorating the position?

Orders of the Day — Rural Water Supplies Bill.: Clause 1. — (Government contributions towards expenses of local authorities for rural water supply.) (7 Mar 1934)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I unreservedly endorse the view expressed by the Minister. Only last week I had a representation from four rural district councils which all agreed that the method which the Minister has developed is the one which should be developed and that no other method could possibly ensure any progress in the water supply in sparsely populated areas. In any case persons are not rated but hereditaments,...

Orders of the Day — Rural Water Supplies Bill.: Clause 1. — (Government contributions towards expenses of local authorities for rural water supply.) (7 Mar 1934)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: Some mercy should be shown to those poor local authorities who have taken at their face value the exhortations of the Minister, dated 11th May last, and have acted in preparing and committing themselves to these exceedingly necessary schemes. I do not know how far even the Minister realises the exceeding urgency of permanent schemes of water supplies in some rural districts. I can only speak...

Orders of the Day — Rural Water Supplies Bill.: Clause 1. — (Government contributions towards expenses of local authorities for rural water supply.) (7 Mar 1934)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I was dealing with paragraph (c) that is, default consequent upon some difficulty arising out of the possible default of other local authorities. I hope we shall have regional organisation and planning—

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: 15. asked the Minister of Health whether his attention has been drawn to the inadequacy of the water supply from rain-water storage tanks and ponds in the villages of Therfield, Kelshall and Northampstead; and whether he is satisfied that the emergency matters proposed by the Rural District Council of Ashwell are adequate and can be maintained at the expense of the inhabitants without special...

Industrial Assurance. (29 Mar 1934)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I suggest no conspiracy.

Industrial Assurance. (29 Mar 1934)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: My complaint is that it reached the papers 10 days before it reached any Members of Parliament, and thus became stale.

Industrial Assurance. (29 Mar 1934)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: That is my point. They ought to be published, in a case like this, in a form which is more palatable to the general public.

Oral Answers to Questions — Industrial Assurance. (12 Apr 1934)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: 49. asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether he will arrange that reports of inspections made under the orders of the industrial insurance commissioner which he considers it desirable to publish under Section 17 of the Industrial Assurance Act of 1923, in anticipation of his annual report, should, in future, be published by the Stationery Office after being laid upon the Table of...
