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

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I have no reason whatever to believe that any such appeal was made to the Moors. The hon. Member for West Leyton (Mr. Sorensen) referred to the Government as having followed the wrong road for a long period. Surely it is pertinent to remember that when the Rhineland was occupied, which to my mind, and I said so at the time, was almost bound to seal the fate of Czechoslovakia, no dissentient...

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

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I have no reason to think that there was any desire on either side of the House that the then Foreign Secretary should go beyond an informal protest, and when in May of this year the Foreign Secretary said that we should not be uninterested in the fate of Czechoslovakia but declined in advance to commit this country to specific action, no responsible voice was raised against him. The line we...

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

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I do not think hon. Members in any part of the House would have been willing for the Government to commit themselves unreservedly to armed intervention. I want to touch upon one specific point which may be raised in Rome—namely the Suez Canal. It is impossible for us or any other nation to regard the present situation as satisfactory. For the past three years the dividends paid have...

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

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: Yes. I want to see proportionate representation. There is also something to be said for the Italian claims in regard to Tunis, not territorially but in their domestic and administrative aspects. It must not be forgotten that when the French took Tunis in 1890, with the consent of Germany and the assent of this country, they promised not to fortify Bizerta ("British Documents on the War," Vol....

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

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: They are dead. They died two generations ago.

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

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I can tell the hon. Gentleman that Mr. Milner Gibson, a former Home Secretary, was the last man to have received a permit from the Bey of Tunis to sail his yacht in the Mediterranean.

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

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I would not like to go into the question of French rights in Tunis. It is not our affair unless we are asked to intervene. The hon. Member for West Leyton put a question as to whether we were to say "What we have, we hold," and expect other nations in the ultimate resort not to take by the sword what we obtained by that means. I am one of those who have always held that we should be prepared...

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

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I do not include the consent of the inhabitants of the territories concerned, for the simple reason that we never asked their opinion. I have no reason to believe that the Germans have much to be ashamed of in their Colonial administration. We all have skeletons in our cupboards. If anybody starts atrocity-mongering, he can find ample cases from every part of the world without difficulty; and...

Orders of the Day — WORKMEN'S COMPENSATION ACTS (1925 to 1934) AMENDMENT BILL. (9 Dec 1938)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I sympathise with the hon. Lady who has moved the Second Reading of the Bill. She is the victim of the futile Rules of this House, whereunder no Member successful in the Ballot has adequate time to draft his Bill, and to discuss it with others. This elaborate, de-tailed and difficult Bill was put before Members of the House at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, was on the Order Paper on Wednesday and did...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce.: Industrial Assurance (Cohen Report). (6 Dec 1938)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: Is the Minister aware that there are certain abuses which the committee said required urgent treatment?

Oral Answers to Questions — Cival Aviation.: Workmen's Compensation. (6 Dec 1938)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many workmen within the scope of the Workmen's Compensation Acts were disabled for periods of 26 weeks, or over, in 1936; and how many cases of all kinds were the subject of litigation during the same period?

Oral Answers to Questions — Public Health.: Tuberculosis (Wales). (1 Dec 1938)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: Will my right hon. Friend take steps to publish the evidence upon which the report was based?

Oral Answers to Questions — Public Health.: Tuberculosis (Wales). (1 Dec 1938)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: Will my right hon. Friend put the evidence in the Library, and bear in mind that a report without the evidence necessarily cannot carry the same weight as a report with the evidence?

Orders of the Day — Workmen's Compensation Bill. (18 Nov 1938)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: This is a depressing occasion. I am speaking to about three hon. Members on my own side of the House who have done me the honour of forgoing their luncheon for the time being. Presently there will be 200 Members of the House who, without having heard any of the arguments, will vote on one side or the other. I shall await the speech from the Government Front Bench before I make up my mind. Not...

Orders of the Day — Workmen's Compensation Bill. (18 Nov 1938)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I am uninformed as to the precise working of this Clause in relation to the rest of the Act which it purports to amend, but, as I understand it, the general intention of workmen's compensation, so far as recompensing widows is concerned, is to apply the law that generally applies for military and other service pensions. If the Clause is deficient in that respect it should certainly be...

Orders of the Day — Workmen's Compensation Bill. (18 Nov 1938)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: That is probably correct, but it does not cover the point that the widow might demand commutation at some point.

Orders of the Day — Workmen's Compensation Bill. (18 Nov 1938)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I was going to deal with that point. I am convinced that it is not possible for hon. Members who are backing this Bill to abolish commutation altogether without arousing a good deal of feeling among their own supporters. There must be some provision for commutation in the long run before we can really regard workmen's compensation as having been put upon an equitable basis. I dislike...

Orders of the Day — Workmen's Compensation Bill. (18 Nov 1938)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: The point my hon. Friend makes is a perfectly good one, but my point is that once men have been injured and have left the industry it is not possible to keep in touch with them, and my object is to see that contact is maintained. I do not question that there is close touch between workmen and employers, but once a man has been injured and has fallen out of the trade there are no means of...

Orders of the Day — Workmen's Compensation Bill. (18 Nov 1938)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I am delighted to know that it is still in operation. I have been looking into the subject of contracting out. That is suspect by some hon. Members of the Opposition, but if they had given the same amount of study to it that I have they would see that it has great merits. Two great shipbuilding firms, two great gas companies and all the employés in Government Departments have contracted out....

Orders of the Day — Workmen's Compensation Bill. (18 Nov 1938)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: May I make it clear that my basis was the revised calculation that I myself put forward, taking two-thirds instead of three-quarters, 25s. instead of 30s., and 30s. instead of 40s. I cut the provisions of the Bill by something like 50 per cent, before I made my calculations.
