Workmen's Compensation. (30 Jan 1940)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I should exclude payment to injured persons for the first month or so, and should pay thereafter on a rising scale. Acute hardship begins after the first month or the first three months. [HON. MEMBERS: "No."] That might not be an acceptable opinion to hon. Members, but I say that the greatest hardship is after the first month.

Workmen's Compensation. (30 Jan 1940)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: There is mitigation, little as I like it, in the fact that they are free to go to the Unemployment Assistance Board, if partially employed—the Board doled out last year f £150,000 in such cases—or to the public assistance authorities in case of total incapacity. I would ask the Government to appoint here and now a workmen's compensation commissioner, recommended by the Holman-Gregory...

Workmen's Compensation. (30 Jan 1940)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I need not say that I have not consulted the Government. I put down this Amendment on my own responsibility, and I am speaking upon my own responsibility. It would be most improper for me to suggest, and quite impossible for the Government to say, whether at the end of a discussive Debate on this subject, any particular scheme sprung upon them in the course of the Debate had their blessing or...

Workmen's Compensation. (30 Jan 1940)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I have referred to a "temporary scheme" pending a report of the Royal Commission, and I do not think I am out of order by debating possibilities. The great possibilities of a contracting-out scheme, such as is adopted in the case of the South Metropolitan and Suburban Gas Company and two great shipbuilding firms of which I know, is that it brings masters and men together, and every case of...

Workmen's Compensation. (30 Jan 1940)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: On a point of Order. May I inquire whether it is in order for a member of the Royal Commission, which has not yet reported, to take part in Debates in this House? If, as I understand, the hon. Gentleman is a member of the Royal Commission, I should have thought that it was inappropriate that he should speak in Debate in this House until such time as the Commission—of which he is a...

Workmen's Compensation. (30 Jan 1940)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: The Royal Commission sat from the beginning of January until September and yet only sat during the whole of that period on 13 days. Is it not possible for the right hon. Gentleman to induce it to sit somewhat oftener than once a fortnight?

Workmen's Compensation. (30 Jan 1940)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: May I ask whether my right hon. Friend accepts that as regards the Treasury scheme for injured workmen, which has been in operation for 20 years, and which covers workmen in all Government factories? If so, it will be quite adequate as a basis of discussion for all of us.

Orders of the Day — Local Elections and Register of Electors (Temporary Provisions) Bill. (17 Oct 1939)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: The hon. and gallant Member for South-East Leeds (Major Milner) says that the Bill is putting democracy into cold storage. On the contrary, democracy does not stop at municipal elections. We are witnessing democracy in action from one end of the country to the other and the particular section of democracy to which this Bill refers is a particular but not an essential part of the democratic...

Oral Answers to Questions — British Army.: Bibles. (11 Oct 1939)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: asked the Secretary of State for War whether he will consider, in conjunction with the Secretary of State for Air, the expediency of regulating by Royal Warrant under Section 13 of the Regimental Debts Act the proceedings of a committee of adjustment under Section 1 (1) in such manner as to require the committee to satisfy themselves that un dertakers charges for the funeral are in all...

Oral Answers to Questions — Coal Industry.: Industrial Assurance Policies. (10 Oct 1939)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether he is aware that the Courts Emergency Powers Act, 1914, Section 1 (b), prevented the lapsing of industrial assurance policies under £25 in value which had been paid for at least 10 years; and whether he will consider the desirability of such legislation now, having regard to the fact that the number of such policies has more than doubled?

Oral Answers to Questions — Coal Industry.: Naval and Military Pensions and Grants. (10 Oct 1939)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: Is my right hon. Friend aware that there are no allowances whatever for any number of children over three, and does he consider that to be an advantageous arrangement?

Oral Answers to Questions — Form of Prayer (Authorisation) (5 Oct 1939)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: asked (1) the Paymaster-General, as representing the Lord President of the Council, whether the form of prayer set forth by the Archbishops of Canterbury and York for use on 1st October last was authorised by Royal Warrant as required by the Act of Uniformity and by precedent, and if not, in what circumstances is copyright of this form of prayer vested in the Crown; and on what grounds was...

Oral Answers to Questions — Form of Prayer (Authorisation) (5 Oct 1939)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: Can the Noble Lord state whether the form of prayer will be printed in the London Gazette along with the Order-in-Council, in accordance with previous precedent; and whether he will look at page 12 of the standard order and observe the very inferior, indeed, illiterate, English in which the two sentences are couched?
