Orders of the Day — Shops (Sunday Trading Restriction) Bill.: Clause 5. — (Provision for Jewish traders.) (24 Apr 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: There are very few who do it.

Orders of the Day — Shops (Sunday Trading Restriction) Bill.: Clause 5. — (Provision for Jewish traders.) (24 Apr 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: Is my hon. Friend prepared to have those days scheduled as compulsory closing days in respect of Jews?

Orders of the Day — Shops (Sunday Trading Restriction) Bill.: Clause 5. — (Provision for Jewish traders.) (24 Apr 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I wish to add my voice very briefly to the list of those who oppose this Amendment and to hope that it will not be considered for a moment. In my view, it is impossible to over-estimate the damage that may be done in many areas by Clause 5 as it stands, and it will be very much worse if it is amended as is here proposed. There will be nothing to prevent the great majority of shops in all...

Orders of the Day — Shops (Sunday Trading Restriction) Bill.: Clause 5. — (Provision for Jewish traders.) (24 Apr 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I hope the House will not allow this Amendment to go through without some further statement from the Under-Secretary on what is involved. Here we have, for the first time in the history of our country, a religious test which is to be applied by a Home Office prescription. There is no provision for it to be put forward as a Statutory rule or Order. It will be done privately, after consultation...

Orders of the Day — Shops (Sunday Trading Restriction) Bill.: Clause 5. — (Provision for Jewish traders.) (24 Apr 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: The Amendment is quite good enough as it stands, and I hope that we shall not put further obligations upon another place, in spite of the appeal which has been made. Apart from that, may I explain to my hon. Friends and to the House, and by way of apology, that had the Jewish Board of Deputies been in communication with me in the past fortnight, as they were a fortnight ago, and had I had...

Orders of the Day — Shops (Sunday Trading Restriction) Bill.: Clause 6. — (Special provisions for London.) (24 Apr 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I cannot agree with the hon. Member for Westhoughton (Mr. Rhys Davies) in supporting the Amendment, which seems to me to be administratively impracticable. There is no electoral roll of street traders. Those who are organised are organised for one purpose, and their organisation may not include those who oppose the majority. It is not dignified to ask the London County Council to be guided by...

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: In the derelict areas, I am proud to say after some considerable examination of the statistics, infantile mortality is as low as in any other part of industrial England.

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...

Oral Answers to Questions — Palestine.: British Somaliland (Death Sentences). (8 Apr 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies how many sentences of death have been passed in British Somaliland during the past 10 years; and in how many cases these have been reversed or commuted on appeal?

Oral Answers to Questions — Palestine.: British Somaliland (Death Sentences). (8 Apr 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what, if any, legal qualifications are possessed by judges in British Somaliland who have power, respectively, to pass and to hear appeals against death sentences on defendants who are not permitted to be heard by counsel?

Oral Answers to Questions — Palestine.: British Somaliland (Death Sentences). (8 Apr 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: Will the right hon. Gentleman take steps to ensure that persons who are British-protected subjects lying under sentence of death are given the same facilities for defence as are proposed for British subjects in foreign territory?

Oral Answers to Questions — India.: Quetta (Rebuilding). (6 Apr 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: In view of the fact that the menace can only come from Russia, will not my hon. Friend consult the Foreign Secretary with a view to the conclusion of a non-aggression pact with Russia?

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 — Medicines and Surgical Appliances (Advertisement) Bill. (27 Mar 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I agree, but people die happier when they are hoping to the end.

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 littleā€”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...
