Prevention of Terrorism (Temporary Provisions) Act 1976 (7 Mar 1983)

Mr William Wilson: What about the hon. Member for Belfast, West (Mr. Fitt)?

Prevention of Terrorism (Temporary Provisions) Act 1976 (7 Mar 1983)

Mr William Wilson: He has certainly borne the brunt.

Immigration (15 Feb 1983)

Mr William Wilson: There is considerable interest in this matter in my constituency. I have had a fair amount of experience of it in the time that I have been a Member of the House. I served on the former Race Relations and Immigration Select Committee for almost nine years. In the past 10 years I must have been engaged professionally in dozens of immigration appeal cases, before either the adjudicator or the...

Orders of the Day — Transport Bill: Payment of Revenue Grants (1 Feb 1983)

Mr William Wilson: As one of the ratepayers of the West Midlands county council, I can say that one hon. Member in the House supports it.

Oral Answers to Questions: Rate Support Grant (14 Dec 1982)

Mr William Wilson: My hon. Friend the Member for Stoke-on-Trent, Central (Mr. Cant) described himself as a humble member of a local authority. If he is a humble member, I hardly know where I come in the council hierarchy. He has managed to rise to the height of chairman of the education committee. After 24 years on the Warwickshire county council, I have never even reached the stage of being a vice-chairman. We...

Oral Answers to Questions: Rate Support Grant (14 Dec 1982)

Mr William Wilson: There is plenty of time. My hon. Friend the Member for Stoke-on-Trent, Central made another point that applies equally to the Warwickshire county council. It does not know what is going on. We spent the July meeting of the council in earnest discussion about how several million pounds were to be saved. We spent the next meeting of the council trying to work out how the two committees on...

Orders of the Day — Legal Aid Bill [Lords]: Computation of Resources (26 Jul 1982)

Mr William Wilson: At a price.

Orders of the Day — Supply: Regional and Industrial Policies (14 Jul 1982)

Mr William Wilson: Will my hon. Friend confirm that it has been estimated by the West Midlands county council economic unit that, as a result of unemployment, that area is now losing £960 million every year, which represents massive purchasing power?

Orders of the Day — Motor Industry (4 Aug 1980)

Mr William Wilson: Like the hon. Members for Birmingham, Northfield (Mr. Cadbury) and Bromsgrove (Mr. Miller), I have visited the Renault car factory. I confess that I went like a country cousin, thinking that I would see how a vast car industry should be run. As the other hon. Members have said, we discovered that the mechanisation and technology did not put the British industry to shame at all. In Chrysler...

Orders of the Day — Motor Industry (4 Aug 1980)

Mr William Wilson: I am glad that my hon. Friend has mentioned the contract that Talbot has with Iran. Can he tell the House that the existence of Talbot in Coventry, and probably Talbot in this country, depends upon the implementation of that contract with Iran, which is held primarily by the factories in Coventry?

Orders of the Day — Employment Bill: Secondary Action (17 Apr 1980)

Mr William Wilson: Of course, the most extraordinary thing about that case was that the miners did not go to court as shame-faced criminals, but with banners flying and bands playing in great numbers.

Clause 13 (21 Jan 1980)

Mr William Wilson: The worst thing that ever happened to Coventry was when it was put into the area of the West Midlands county council. When I listen to the expressions of paternal or maternal instinct telling us in Coventry what we should put in our subways by way of advertisement, my gorge rises. Most of the subways in Coventry have no advertising matter at all. That is how the position should remain....

Immigration (4 Dec 1979)

Mr William Wilson: I am trying to follow the hon. Member's argument about the manner in which the Conservative Party made up its mind on immigration policy. Do I understand the hon. Member as saying that, had we discussed the matter in the House and had the benefit of speeches from the Labour Benches, Conservative Members would have been able to make up their minds more accurately about immigration in language...

Immigration (4 Dec 1979)

Mr William Wilson: My hon. Friend probably realises that the practical implementation of the rules before the adjudicators and the tribunal accounts for as much experience as any hon. Member may possess. He was perfectly right to describe the difficulty of succeeding in relation to a distressed or dependent relative. I can tell him quite frankly that it is virtually impossible to succeed. The effect of the...

Economic Policy (28 Nov 1979)

Mr William Wilson: Only once.

Police Authorities (Powers): Obligation of Foreign Secretary to Report to Parliament (14 Nov 1979)

Mr William Wilson: I was a soldier in the Greek Army 34 years ago. Understandably, at that time I came to have a great affection for things Greek and Greece. In the humble capacity in which I served, I never expected that the day would come when, in this House, I should welcome Greece as a member of a European community. I hope that my support tonight may be of more use to Greece than were my services as a...

Orders of the Day — Education Bill (16 Jul 1979)

Mr William Wilson: I serve on the Warwickshire county council. When the contribution of the Warwickshire education committee to the number of pupils to be sent to the local school is next considered, will the hon. Gentleman accept a diminution of the number of places that it will buy at that school?

Orders of the Day — WEST MIDLANDS COUNTY COUNCIL BILL [Lords] (28 Jun 1979)

Mr William Wilson: Will the Minister give way for a moment? He referred to Coventry.

Orders of the Day — WEST MIDLANDS COUNTY COUNCIL BILL [Lords] (By Order) (6 Feb 1979)

Mr William Wilson: Can the hon. Member say whether proceedings were taken against the organisers of any of those marches?

Orders of the Day — WEST MIDLANDS COUNTY COUNCIL BILL [Lords] (By Order) (6 Feb 1979)

Mr William Wilson: I wonder whether the hon. Gentleman could help me, because I might have to advise the police in my constituency. Once a fortnight from Coventry station to Coventry City football ground great processions of visiting supporters are organised by the police. We are told that notice has to be given to the police and to the district council. Will it be necessary for the chief superintendent of...
