Orders of the Day — Road Traffic (Driving Licences) Bill.: New Clause. — (Date of expiry of licences.) (8 May 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I beg to move, "That the Clause be read a Second time." This proposal provides that as from January next the issue of driving licences shall be standardised so as to begin from a particular date, 1st April until 31st March, so that motorists will readily know when their licence expires. I admit that the new Clause is far less necessary in view of the undertaking given by the Parliamentary...

Orders of the Day — Road Traffic (Driving Licences) Bill.: New Clause. — (Date of expiry of licences.) (8 May 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: With your permission, Mr. Deputy-Speaker, I beg to ask leave of the House to withdraw the Clause. I hope they will continue to consider the importance of making administrative changes in the issue of licences by county councils by regulations that will make them uniform for the whole of England and Wales and not peculiar to any particlar county. Motion and Clause, by leave, withdrawn.

Orders of the Day — Road Traffic (Driving Licences) Bill.: CLAUSE 1. (Extension of steersmen from certain provisions as to issue of licences.) (8 May 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I beg to second the Amendment. I have seen five or six accidents in my own constituency in the past six months, two of them serious, and in each case fatal, and in each case the direct consequence of some failure on the part of the steersman or the steering gear of the rear vehicle, and I feel that there is at least as strong a case for these men being licensed as for the ordinary lorry...

Orders of the Day — Road Traffic (Driving Licences) Bill.: CLAUSE 1. (Extension of steersmen from certain provisions as to issue of licences.) (8 May 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I beg to second the Amendment. I support the Amendment on the grounds set forth in the concluding portion of the speech, that these showmen are constantly travelling through large towns and turning and reversing in the main streets with their heavy vehicles. They are a public danger unless they are brought under regulations like any other traffic in the streets. They have to go through...

Orders of the Day — Road Traffic (Driving Licences) Bill.: Clause 2. — (Issue of provisional licences with a view to testing of heavy vehicle drivers.) (8 May 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I beg to second the Amendment. My reasons are the same as those put forward by the hon. Member for Henley (Sir G. Fox). These licences cost too much. They are a heavy burden on the young men who are the next generation of drivers, and who have to go to their employers and ask them for a loan, which may be as much as a whole week's wages, to enable them to pay for the licence to drive. We...

Orders of the Day — Road Traffic (Driving Licences) Bill.: Clause 2. — (Issue of provisional licences with a view to testing of heavy vehicle drivers.) (8 May 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I take the same view. We ought to have some sort of explanation, because thousands of His Majesty's subjects will be affected by the Bill, and it ought not to pass us without a word.

Orders of the Day — Shops (Sunday Trading Restriction) Bill.: First Schedule.. — (Trades and Businesses exempted from the Provisions of Section One). (8 May 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: In the few moments which are left to the House, I wish to place before hon. Members the considerations which have led me and other Members consistently to oppose the Bill in accordance with principles which are well-founded, and well-grounded in experience. The Bill gives the right to Jewish traders to open on Sunday, provided that they close their shops on Saturday, and sign a statutory...

Orders of the Day — Shops (Sunday Trading Restriction) Bill.: First Schedule.. — (Trades and Businesses exempted from the Provisions of Section One). (8 May 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: It will, in fact, increase the opportunity for trading on the Sabbath. With these words I beg to express my hope that the House will vote against the Bill. Question put, and agreed to. Bill accordingly read the Third time, and passed.

Orders of the Day — Shops (Sunday Trading Restriction) Bill.: Clause 7. — (Provisions as to delivery of goods.) (1 May 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I beg to move, in page 8, line 5, at the end, to insert: (c) in the case of shops exempted under section five of this Act on any Sunday when the succeeding Monday is a Jewish holy day. We understand, from petitions and circulars which have reached us and from statements which have been made by the promoters of the Bill or on their behalf, that, when the question of exemptions under Clause 5...

Orders of the Day — Shops (Sunday Trading Restriction) Bill.: Clause 7. — (Provisions as to delivery of goods.) (1 May 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I cannot allow my hon. Friend's remarks to pass unchallenged. The 15 Jewish holy days to which I refer could not conceivably, in more than two or three cases, fall on a Monday. They do not depend upon the seven days of the week, and it would be quite exceptional for more than two, or three at the most, to fall on a Monday. I confess, Mr. Speaker, that I am in somewhat of a difficulty because...

Orders of the Day — Shops (Sunday Trading Restriction) Bill.: Clause 7. — (Provisions as to delivery of goods.) (1 May 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I can only speak again with the consent of the House. I rose merely to rebut the suggestion that I was trying to destroy the Bill, and was not serious. Having done that, I willingly respond to the appeal of my hon. Friend the promoter of the Bill, and beg to ask leave to withdraw the Amendment. Amendment, by leave, withdrawn.

Orders of the Day — Shops (Sunday Trading Restriction) Bill.: Clause 8. — (Miscellaneous savings.) (1 May 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I beg to move, in page 8, line 42, after "hotel," to insert "or club." Sub-section (4) of Clause 8 refers solely to hairdressers and barbers, and the object of this Amendment is simply to make it possible for hairdressers and barbers to attend members of clubs not less freely than residents in hotels. It is a widespread custom throughout the country for hairdressers and barbers to be in...

Orders of the Day — Shops (Sunday Trading Restriction) Bill.: Clause 8. — (Miscellaneous savings.) (1 May 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: Not more than in hotels. The Shops Acts, 1912, and other legislation makes it quite clear that if a person works on a Sunday be should get compensatory holidays at other times in the year. It will not affect the law as hours of employment are concerned.

Orders of the Day — Shops (Sunday Trading Restriction) Bill.: Clause 8. — (Miscellaneous savings.) (1 May 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: The Amendment does not preclude fresh clubs opening fresh hairdressers' shops any more than it precludes fresh hotels opening fresh hairdressing shops. So far as a barber who comes into a club is concerned, he differs in no way from a barber who enters a hotel in order to give his services to some private person. That, according to Halsbury's Laws of England, is legal, provided the man is a...

Orders of the Day — Shops (Sunday Trading Restriction) Bill.: Clause 8. — (Miscellaneous savings.) (1 May 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I beg to move, in page 9, line 2, to leave out "sea-going." This is an exceedingly brief Amendment to Sub-section (5) which reads: This Act shall not apply to any shop, or to the carrying on of any trade or business, in any sea-going ship. The object is to make the position clear. Some Members of the shipping community take the same view as I do of the Bill that "sea-going ship" unduly...

Orders of the Day — Shops (Sunday Trading Restriction) Bill.: Clause 8. — (Miscellaneous savings.) (1 May 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I did not say that.

Orders of the Day — Shops (Sunday Trading Restriction) Bill.: Clause 8. — (Miscellaneous savings.) (1 May 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: If a ship is, for instance, running as a purely pleasure steamer from, say, Blackpool to Fleetwood, will it not be required completely to come under all the other provisions of the Act, unless some limiting provision is put in such as I have suggested in regard to coastwise ships? It is only coastwise shipping with which I am dealing.

Orders of the Day — Shops (Sunday Trading Restriction) Bill.: Clause 8. — (Miscellaneous savings.) (1 May 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I beg to move, in page 9, line 3, at the end, to insert: for the convenience of bona-fide passengers, or to any railway train or air- craft, or to any fair lawfully held, or any bazaar or sale of work for charitable purposes from which no private profit is derived, as defined in. sub-section (2) of section nineteen of the Shops Act, 1912. In moving this Amendment I have in mind ships which...
