Orders of the Day — King's Speech.: Debate on the Address. (9 Nov 1938)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: It is not my intention to deal with foreign affairs, either directly or indirectly, but it would be lack of courtesy on my part if I did not say something with regard to the speech of the hon. Member for Attercliffe (Mr. C. Wilson). He referred to the custom of this House in opening its proceedings with prayer. May I remind the House that during the War it was its custom to have a special...

Orders of the Day — King's Speech.: Debate on the Address. (9 Nov 1938)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: Tennyson replied, and his reply deserves to be repeated in this House, though I have not got it in my pocket.

He went on: "We love not this French God, the child of Hell …No little German State are we …That if...

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: asked the Prime Minister whether in view of the fact that this country effectively supported in 1918 the claim for self-determination of Czechs and Slays which led to the creation of Czechoslovakia, he will now give an assurance that this country will not lend moral or other support to the denial of a claim for self-determination by means of a plebiscite in the event of failure of...

Oral Answers to Questions — India.: Czechoslovakia. (18 Jul 1938)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: asked the Prime Minister whether he has yet received a copy of the text of the proposed Czechoslovak Nationalities Statute; whether he is aware that non-publication has strengthened the Sudeten desire for a plebiscite under international supervision; and what steps he proposes to take to ensure that publication takes place before this matter is brought before the League of Nations under the...

PROTECTION OF ANIMALS (No. 3). (13 Jul 1938)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I rise to oppose the Motion with no lack of appreciation of the great work done by my hon. Friend and by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. The House should be careful before it gives leave to introduce a Bill to replace one which was introduced only a week or so ago, which when examined was found to be liable to bring about the conviction of innocent parties. There...

PROTECTION OF ANIMALS (No. 3). (13 Jul 1938)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I beg the hon. Member's pardon and regret that I should have made the statement. The ground for the last prosecution was prepared at great expense by an agent provocateur who, having spent I think two years in getting into the confidence of cock-fighters, having himself kept, bought and sold cocks for fighting, was in a position to obtain sufficient inside knowledge to secure a conviction. I...

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I join the right hon. Member for Epping (Mr. Churchill) in welcoming this report and also in his congratulations to the Prime Minister, though perhaps for another reason. I am glad that the Prime Minister made it clear that this House is claiming no new privilege. Under the law as it stands hon. Members are not immune from attendance at any courts of justice, nor from any criminal...

Privileges. (11 Jul 1938)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: In this case the Secretary of State for War has accepted formal responsibility, but we may perhaps forget that between him and the Divisional Generals stands, under the Order in Council, the Under-Secretary to the War Office, who is the member of the Army Council formally charged with the responsibility for all Territorial Force Associations. As it so happens he is a Member of the other...

Privileges. (11 Jul 1938)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I am depending solely and exclusively upon the text of the Order in Council of 1904 as amended by an Order in Council of 1936, which lays down the composition of the Army Council and provides that the Under-Secretary of State shall be responsible to the Secretary of State for War on matters affecting Territorial Force Associations. If he had not direct personal knowledge it would have been...

Privileges. (11 Jul 1938)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I do not wish to take advantage of the voluntary and desirable silence which the hon. Member has imposed upon himself. I wish to point out that there are two sides to this question and that a Court of Inquiry is not a tribunal, it is not an inquisition, it is not a body which can pass any sentence, and that it has not hitherto been suggested that hon. Members are or should be immune under...

Privileges. (11 Jul 1938)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: Admonition is not severe punishment and I know of no precedent for admonishing a servant of the Crown. For the rest the courts of justice are open and we have no right to interfere with the courts of justice. The Order in Council lays it down that the Secretary of State for War is responsible in all that pertains to the Army, to the King, and to Parliament, and the Army Council was not set up...

Oral Answers to Questions — Public Health.: Local Administration, Tyneside. (7 Jul 1938)
