Oral Answers to Questions — Coal Industry.: Young Persons (Education and Recreation). (15 Sep 1939)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: Will my hon. Friend interpret the word "technical" very widely? The question is educational, and the word "technical" will not cover very many desirable institutions in London.

Oral Answers to Questions — Coal Industry.: Young Persons (Education and Recreation). (15 Sep 1939)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: Does that cover adults from 18 upwards like the working men's college and evening institutes?

Orders of the Day — POLICE AND FIREMEN (WAR SERVICE) BILL [Lords]. (7 Sep 1939)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: There are two small points which I wish to raise. One is that I think it will be necessary, sooner or later—if not in this Bill, then elsewhere —to provide for some form of arbitration or some outside authority where local authorities have contracted out of their responsibility by insuring themselves against accident with some industrial insurance company. The contract of insurance cannot...

Orders of the Day — POLICE AND FIREMEN (WAR SERVICE) BILL [Lords].: Clause 4. — (Grants in case of death or incapacity.) (7 Sep 1939)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: The Under-Secretary has not dealt with the question of the Ministry of Pensions responsibility for those who are wounded and those who are partially or wholly incapacitated, who, in my submission, should be looked after by the Ministry of Pensions. Can my hon. Friend make any statement on the subject?

Orders of the Day — Ways and Means.: Schedule. (5 Sep 1939)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I asked the Minister whether he would consider Item 17 in the Schedule so as to cover a charity or trust, and as this has not been done I assume that the Minister has not found it necessary. I take this opportunity, as the Under-Secretary of the Home Office is present, to express the hope that charities will be considered, if not here then elsewhere, for great hardship and many difficulties...

Orders of the Day — Ways and Means.: National Registration Bill. (5 Sep 1939)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I saw in a book, a psychological study, that in England about one man in 10 and one woman in six who are regularly employed have an alternative occupation for which they are competent and fairly well trained; so that this is a manageable proposition. In my own constituency, which has benefitted immensely from the vast transfer of men and women from the North to the South during the past 10...

Orders of the Day — Ways and Means.: National Registration Bill. (5 Sep 1939)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: Perhaps my right hon. Friend will tell us whether it is proposed to add an index number to each identity card. It would greatly increase the efficiency of this national registration if every person on his card has a distinctive index letter and number.

Orders of the Day — National Registration Bill. (4 Sep 1939)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I very much hope that the penalties provided by this Bill will be revised. At present they are very heavy indeed. They might be the penalties imposed by a Milk Marketing Board. I speak as a magistrate. When magistrates see that a very heavy penalty has been prescribed as a maximum they tend, naturally, to be somewhat more severe than when a lower penalty has been prescribed. With the...

Orders of the Day — Local Government Staffs (War Service) Bill. (4 Sep 1939)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: May I suggest adding to the Schedule as Item 18, the following words: officer or servant of a charitable institution to which it is certified by the Charity Commissioners that it is expedient that Section one of this Act should apply, notwithstanding any trust affecting the charity. A good many charitable institutions employ persons who may be called up, and it would assist in the operation...

Orders of the Day — Class Vii.: International Situation. (31 Jul 1939)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: It is two years since I spoke on foreign affairs in this House, but I have spoken and written much out side and I think it right to express here some of the convictions which I have voiced. The right hon. Gentleman the Member for Caithness and Sutherland (Sir A. Sinclair) referred to "the lowest level of self-interest." I suggest that en lightened self-interest is the highest practical level...

Orders of the Day — Class Vii.: International Situation. (31 Jul 1939)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: So far as the genuinely neutral Powers are concerned, with good results. I refer to the Low Countries and Scandinavia. I hope we shall not be required to sign the Anglo-Russian Agreement on the dotted line merely in order to get an agreement. We know from the Finnish Press and other sources that if we do what Russia requires of us, we shall be required to induce Poland and Rumania to cancel...

Orders of the Day — Class Vii.: International Situation. (31 Jul 1939)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I have read "Mein-Kampf" and am aware that Herr Hitler said they were of no use to Germany, but that is not the view that he or the great majority of his people are taking to-day. The present demand is due to an inferiority complex. Fourthly, there is the question of financial rehabilitation on the gold basis. Germany's responsibility for each of these problems is great, but is not exclusive....

Orders of the Day — Class Vii.: International Situation. (31 Jul 1939)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: Czecho-Slovakia has ceased to exist, and no one regrets it more than I do. I mention Italy because her population is increasing as rapidly as that of certain other countries is decreasing.

Orders of the Day — Class Vii.: International Situation. (31 Jul 1939)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I would not give a single colony to Germany to-day. What practical steps can we take? I suggest the publication of a formal declaration of policy announcing that if Germany and Italy will cease to rely solely on force — if they will not, we will meet force with the same weapon and defeat it — we are prepared to sponsor, in collaboration with other Powers, a scheme for Jewish settlement on...

Orders of the Day — Class Vii.: International Situation. (31 Jul 1939)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I recognise the dilemma, which I would put in precisely the same words as my hon. Friend. The dilemma exists, but the only way out a dilemma is to take one course or the other. If Germany has not the courage to approach us we as the older, the senior and the wiser Power must again take the initiative. Because we failed once it does not follow that we may not succeed a second time. It is...

Orders of the Day — Class Vii.: International Situation. (31 Jul 1939)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: Perhaps I might explain. In Germany and Italy the Press is controlled, and the poisonous nonsense which they are now talking can be stopped by the Governments of those countries if they so desire, but to do that by mutual agreement there must be effective machinery on both sides.

Orders of the Day — Class Vii.: International Situation. (31 Jul 1939)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I well know it.

Orders of the Day — Prevention of Violence (Temporary Provisions) Bill.: Clause I. — (Power of Secretary of State to make Orders.) (26 Jul 1939)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I oppose this Amendment and support the Bill. I hope that the Home Secretary will give way no further. He has perhaps gone too far. We have heard a great deal about suspicion and suspects. I was taught in my youth that a thing might be said to be true when a reasonable man in the conduct of his private business was justified in assuming that it was so. The Home Secretary has to be...
