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

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I speak under correction, but there is the evidence of the Registrar-General that one of the chief troubles of miners and miners' wives to-day is bronchial affection, as if miners had not such strong lungs now as they had 30 years ago. The late Sir Thomas Legge as late as 1934 expressed his bewilderment at the complications of silicosis. Any progress would be welcomed. In the meantime it...

Oral Answers to Questions — Housing.: Poultry-Keeping. (16 Mar 1939)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: Will the right hon. Gentleman also make inquiry into the keeping of racing pigeons?

Oral Answers to Questions — Aged Coroners. (16 Mar 1939)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: asked the Home Secretary whether he is aware that several coroners are 90 years of age; and whether he will consider, in the public interest, some means of encouraging them to end a career of public service by providing facilities for honourable retirement?

Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Air Force.: Enlistments (British Subjects). (15 Mar 1939)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: asked the Secretary of State for Air what regulations are in existence prohibiting the enlistment in the Royal Air Force of British subjects not born and bred in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland one of whose parents or grandparents is non-Aryan?

Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Air Force.: Enlistments (British Subjects). (15 Mar 1939)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: Will my right hon. Friend bear in mind that there are in the British Colonies a very large number of persons who are fully British subjects but not of completely European descent, and that they would be a great source of strength to the armed forces of the Crown if we were able to make adequate use of them?

Oral Answers to Questions — British Army.: Anglo-Indians (Enlistment, India). (14 Mar 1939)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: asked the Secretary of State for War whether any regulations are in existence prohibiting the enlistment in India, for service in the British Army, of Anglo-Indians of good physique and character; and whether he will consider the desirability of encouraging such enlistments, having regard to the creditable military records of such men during the Great War?

Government of Burma Act,1935. (6 Mar 1939)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I hope I may be in order, within the somewhat narrow rules of a Debate on a Motion such as this, in asking the Government whether the proposals under paragraph 2 of the Draft Order in Council refer to such adjustments as may be necessary in reference to the additional provision that will certainly be required, if my correspondents are correct, with a view to preventing the almost unlimited...

Government of Burma Act,1935. (6 Mar 1939)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: Might I ask the Under-secretary whether he will make specific inquiries so that if I put down a question in six weeks or two months' time he will be able to state what charge will be placed upon the revenues of the Federated Shan States in regard to this road and the cost of police?

Social Insurance Services. (22 Feb 1939)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I beg to move, in line 3, to leave out from "House," to the end of the Question, and to add instead thereof: welcomes the fact that, even in this time of unprecedented calls upon the Exchequer for the purposes of national defence, it has been found possible to maintain and extend the social insurance services, and urges that close and careful review of their administration and their aims...

Social Insurance Services. (22 Feb 1939)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: The difference is quite clear. In this case we are dealing with the details of an existing Act, which does not require more than extension or amendment, but in the case of workmen's compensation, I urged repeatedly, as have hon. Members on the Opposition side, the necessity of a profound and complete alteration in the Act itself.

Social Insurance Services. (22 Feb 1939)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: It would be difficult for any Minister even with the assistance of the Civil Service to launch out upon a new system without any inquiry whatever. I have learned something in the last five years and I am getting rather tired of Royal Commissions and committees, including partisans of both sides, with an impartial chairman, who finally induces them to sign a jejune, anodyne and vacillating...

Social Insurance Services. (22 Feb 1939)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: There are two schemes, one estimated to cost £200,000,000 and the other £100,000,000. I should not, however, like to bandy words with the hon. Member on the finance of pensions' schemes. Perhaps that opportunity may occur on some other occasion. We have made greater progress in the past five than in the previous 15 years. We are much the heaviest-taxed nation in Europe, yet we have raised...

Social Insurance Services. (22 Feb 1939)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I can imagine nothing more unfortunate than to tell the older people that the social services can be increased for the benefit of some, regardless of the cost to the whole population, and regardless of the fact that in a few years time another economy axe might come into operation—the worst possible advertisement for Parliamentary institutions. It will not relieve anxiety to start schemes...

Bacon Industry (Amendment) Bill. (9 Feb 1939)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: Until I heard the speech of the hon. Member for Don Valley (Mr. T. Williams) I was under the impression that nothing that I should wish to say upon the Bill could be in order, because the Bill is narrowly drawn, but I am led by his concluding remarks to observe that to call for loyalty on the part of the farmers to the curers is to stretch the imagination rather far. The curers have not as...

Workmen's Compensation. (8 Feb 1939)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I beg to move, in line 3, to leave out from "House" to the end of the Question, and to add instead thereof: relies on the Commission to proceed with its work as quickly as possible and, when the inquiry has sufficiently advanced, to consider the issue of an interim report on the more urgent questions, including the rates of compensation. There is no one on this side of the House who would...

Orders of the Day — CENSUS OF PRODUCTION BILL [Lords]. (2 Feb 1939)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: There are one or two observations which I would like to make. I entirely agree as to the great value of these figures; they would be much more useful if they could also be presented in the quinquennial reports by regional areas, as adopted by the Ministry of Labour. As the right hon. Gentleman has just said, it is most important that we should have more planning in the future, and if the...

Orders of the Day — Foreign Policy. (19 Dec 1938)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: Speak for yourself.

Orders of the Day — Foreign Policy. (19 Dec 1938)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: The hon. Member for Bridgwater (Mr. Bartlett) has made a serious accusation against the British Broadcasting Corporation, which should be either substantiated or withdrawn—namely, that as a minor result of his having made a very moderate criticism of the Foreign Secretary his engagement at Broadcasting House was terminated.

Orders of the Day — Foreign Policy. (19 Dec 1938)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I hope the hon. Member will make it quite clear that it was not in consequence of any political prejudice on the part of the Governors that he left Broadcasting House.

Orders of the Day — Foreign Policy. (19 Dec 1938)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: The point is of importance. Hon. Members on both sides of the House would be reluctant to believe that political prejudice could affect employment of broadcasters, and I am glad that the hon. Member has made the point clear. The hon. Member for Bishop Auckland (Mr. Dalton) made satirical and what seemed to be rather offensive remarks about Moors fighting for the Cross of Christ. The French...
