Table IV. (5 Apr 1939)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I feel bound to associate myself with the remarks which have fallen from the hon. Member for Dundee (Mr. Foot) in regard to the very narrow drafting of the Financial Resolution. It is really very difficult to speak on some matters which would have been perfectly relevant otherwise, in view of the fact that the Money Resolution excludes a whole series of Amendments which would normally be...

Table IV. (5 Apr 1939)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I am speaking in support of the local authorities. I should not like to see them mulct in damages for third-party claims which might be much more serious than the burden which the Government are assuming in respect of probably trifling injuries to the persons themselves while being trained or while training others. I do not much like the exceeding vagueness of this scheme which, under Clause...

Table IV. (5 Apr 1939)

Orders of the Day — Unemployment Insurance Bill. (28 Mar 1939)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I want to add to the plea put forward by the hon. Member for South Croydon (Mr. H. G. Williams) that the views of the hon. Member for Gorbals (Mr. Buchanan) as regards holidays may receive indulgent consideration from the Minister. I listened with great interest to the plea of the hon. Member for Chester-le-Street (Mr. Lawson) that there should be an inquiry, and I am confident that such an...

Orders of the Day — Unemployment Insurance Bill. (28 Mar 1939)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: No, I do not suggest that. They are men who are capable of being taken on and earning improvers' wages from the very beginning. They are sufficiently good to be welcome junior members of any workshop. That is all one could ask and all that one would wish. There is one point that I put to the Minister. There are 40,000 men every year passing through vocational training centres and Ministry of...

Orders of the Day — Unemployment Insurance Bill. (28 Mar 1939)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I am quite aware of that fact, but I have mentioned panel-beating as a contrast to oxy-acetylene welding. They are as different as chalk from cheese. A man is kept busy for four or five years learning the art of panel-beating. It is true that there is no such thing as unskilled labour. All work has its art, and unskilled labour, such as it is—and it is a technical term—is becoming less...

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I am not a miner, nor a coalowner, and I have no coalmines in my constituency, but I am a serious student of accidents and have studied very carefully the report of this Royal Commission and listened to nearly all the speeches this evening as an interested outsider. My hon. Friend the Member for North Leeds (Mr. Peake) has been attacked for making a comparison between the general mortality...

Orders of the Day — Civil Estimates and Estimates for Revenue Departments, 1939 (Vote on Account). (21 Mar 1939)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: Sir Richmond Redmayne declares from his experience that the great majority of accidents take place at the beginning of a shift, due primarily to the fact that the working place has been left alone for one or two shifts, and that miners come back to the place in a more dangerous condition than if it had been worked all the time. Apart from that, I do not think that we have anything like as...

Orders of the Day — Civil Estimates and Estimates for Revenue Departments, 1939 (Vote on Account). (21 Mar 1939)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: Boys are newcomers to the industry, but the newcomers, whether boys or not, have an equal amount of accidents. It is not because he is a boy that he has an accident, but primarily because he is a newcomer. The American statistics show that newcomers who are adults over 21 have just the same liability to accidents in the first few months as boys of 14. The accident rate is the same. They are...

Orders of the Day — Civil Estimates and Estimates for Revenue Departments, 1939 (Vote on Account). (21 Mar 1939)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: On that I can only comment that precisely the same observations were made in 1860, and that the mining population as a whole, ever since it began to collect at the mines, has tended to deteriorate, owing primarily to the conditions of work below ground, and now they are not being helped by conditions of life above ground. We shall not be able to deal effectively with accidents unless we...
