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: It is a grave matter, but our first concern should be to get the ringleaders. They will not risk their own skins, but only the lives of their dupes, I hope we shall not have any element of judicial procedure spatchcocked into this Clause. It seems to me to be most unfair to the judiciary to use them in a matter which is necessarily for the executive. The business of Government is to govern....

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: So far as my argument is concerned it is splitting hairs. The hon. Member for Stafford (Mr. Thorney-croft) suggested that, if he picked up a bag which might contain an explosive that might thereafter go off, he might thereupon become a suspected person. May I tell the House very briefly the story of what happened on 24th January, 1885? At ten minutes past two p.m. on that day part of the...

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: The situation was just as serious in 1885 as it is now. It was a Liberal Government that passed Measures compared with which the present common-sense Bill is mild—[Interruption.] I am referring to the Coercion Acts. At that time we were responsible for Ireland; we are now trying to keep order in England; and it seems to me entirely unfair to the judiciary to seek to place upon them a...

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: Will my right hon. Friend the Home Secretary consider sending copies of the answer to all registrars? They do not all read the "Times"

Orders of the Day — Civil Estimates, 1939.: Class Ii. (20 Jul 1939)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I am reluctant to enter the lists as a protagonist of Jew or Arab. I would sooner speak as one who has consistently tried, as an administrator in the harness of His Majesty's Government abroad, to promote good will between the various groups, nationalities and religions over whom it was at one time my duty, on behalf of His Majesty's Government, from time to time to attempt to exercise some...

Orders of the Day — Civil Estimates, 1939.: Class Ii. (20 Jul 1939)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: The Balfour Declaration was not intended to deal with a situation such as has arisen in Europe, and, anyhow, the Balfour Declaration could not deal with the situation with which we are now confronted in Europe. There must not be one National Home, but half a score of National Homes throughout the world, if Jewish needs are to be met. Russia might have made a great contri- bution, but her...

Orders of the Day — Civil Estimates, 1939.: Class Ii. (20 Jul 1939)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: The Permanent Mandates Commission consists of 10 members according to rules. The absentees did not represent Spain, Italy and Japan but were present in their personal capacity. There has been nothing whatever to prevent the appointment of other persons to take their places at any time in the past two years.

Orders of the Day — Civil Estimates, 1939.: Class Ii. (20 Jul 1939)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: Yes, I should, and I regard it as a great mistake to have decisions of great importance taken by less than a full Commission. Who are the seven members other than Sir M. Hankey? There is M. Orts, of Belgium, a man with great administrative knowledge of Africa and of great experience, to whom all Europe is indebted, and M. Giraud, a Frenchman, also with considerable experience in the Colonies....

Orders of the Day — Civil Estimates, 1939.: Class Ii. (20 Jul 1939)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: From personal conversation with their friends. The Permanent Mandates Commission as such has power to receive petitions, but it has not been allowed by the Council of the League of Nations to hear any petitioners who desired to appear before it or to visit the countries on which it makes pronouncements. It can only deal with matters on paper. It meets twice a year but once in its history it...
