Orders of the Day — Ministry of Works: Building Costs (23 Jul 1943)

Wing Commander Archibald James: I also raised this point. If a Question is put down, can the Minister say that he will give a full account of the status and emoluments of these commissars?

Orders of the Day — Trend of Population (16 Jul 1943)

Wing Commander Archibald James: So much of the statistical basis of the subject has been touched upon that I only want to make a few observations. I have taken an interest for many years in this subject and both in this House and in my constituency have stressed the need for calling attention to population problems. I am surprised that in this Debate no reference that I have heard has been made to the appalling revelation...

Orders of the Day — Trend of Population (16 Jul 1943)

Wing Commander Archibald James: I was only referring to this matter in passing, and I do not want to argue the question of contraceptives, because it is outside the scope of this Debate. It has however a direct relationship to the present position. When anybody of any age or sex can go into a chemist's shop and be served over the counter, that is a deplorable state of affairs. The hon. Member for the Combined English...

Orders of the Day — Trend of Population (16 Jul 1943)

Wing Commander Archibald James: Had the Noble Lady been in the Chamber at the time she would have known that I was talking of the social problem group. It is in that group that this will operate, the submerged tenth. I regard family allowances as a matter more of the welfare of the child than of the encouragement of the birth-rate. There is a weakness in the Beveridge Report which seems to me rather surprising. I do not see...

Orders of the Day — Trend of Population (16 Jul 1943)

Wing Commander Archibald James: I was not arguing about the effect of contraceptives on the birth-rate; I was dealing with the general moral question of allowing them to be exposed for sale without restriction.

Orders of the Day — Foreign Service Bill (22 Jun 1943)

Wing Commander Archibald James: My right hon. Friend the Foreign Secretary is having a gala day, and I wish to add my very humble meed of praise for this excellent little Bill. We had very few opportunities from these benches in the Debate on the White Paper to express our viewpoints, and as this is the Second Reading of a Bill which is really part of that White Paper, I hope that some slight latitude will be allowed to me...

War Situation (11 Feb 1943)

Wing Commander Archibald James: We have just listened to a speech such as we always expect from the hon. Member for Leigh (Mr. Tinker)—a thoroughly helpful, common-sense, contructive speech. I was prompted to intervene briefly by the first part of the hon. Member's speech, in which he alluded with great force to the, as I think, foolish and harmful—although it had every appearance of being sincere—speech of the hon....

War Situation (11 Feb 1943)

Wing Commander Archibald James: I never said it was.

War Situation (11 Feb 1943)

Wing Commander Archibald James: My hon. Friend entirely misunderstand my thesis. I did not say that the Government of North Africa was representative but that the territory was part of Metropolitan France. Inevitably any emigré Government—after all, the French North African Government is to some extent emigré—cannot be representative of the people of the whole land. My belief is that we should not seek to obtrude our...

Ballot for Notices of Motions: Rural Housing ( 3 Feb 1943)

Wing Commander Archibald James: I beg to give notice that, on going into Committee of Supply on the Civil Estimates, I shall call attention to the question of Rural Housing, and move a Resolution.

Oral Answers to Questions — National War Effort: Factories (Hours of Work) (28 Jan 1943)

Oral Answers to Questions — National War Effort: Call-up Deferment (Local Needs) (28 Jan 1943)

Wing Commander Archibald James: asked the Minister of Labour whether any guidance has been given to man-power and hardship committees upon making allowance for the effect upon local needs and services, as well as upon the position of individuals, in considering exemption from and postponement of calling up persons for military and industrial service; and whether he will reconsider the position, particularly having regard to...

Oral Answers to Questions — National War Effort: Call-up Deferment (Local Needs) (28 Jan 1943)

Wing Commander Archibald James: Is my right hon. Friend aware that most Members are increasingly having cases brought to their notice in which local needs appear to be overlooked and all the emphasis is placed upon the needs of individuals? Should not community needs also be served?

Oral Answers to Questions — National War Effort: Conscientious Objectors (28 Jan 1943)

Wing Commander Archibald James: asked the Minister of Labour what checks are employed to ensure that conscientious objectors granted exemption from military service and instead directed to other work, do in fact put in the full hours of that employment; and whether local police are instructed to watch the position?

Oral Answers to Questions — National War Effort: Conscientious Objectors (28 Jan 1943)

Wing Commander Archibald James: Could not my right hon. Friend devise some machinery for keeping a regular watch, thus obviating the complaints about hours which continually come to Members?

Oral Answers to Questions — National War Effort: Conscientious Objectors (28 Jan 1943)

Wing Commander Archibald James: Having regard to the fact that the cases are comparatively few and that the local police can keep an eye on them, without the provision of more man-power, cannot a general direction be given to the police to watch cases more carefully?

Orders of the Day — National Service Bill ( 8 Dec 1942)

Wing Commander Archibald James: The Minister, in introducing the Bill, said that his primary concern was the maximum war effort. It is solely in relation to that need that I want to make a few remarks. I am worried at what appears to me to be a tendency to overstrain the home front at present. I represent a primarily industrial constituency, but I live in a rural constituency in the same county. Owing to the fact that the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign Government Representatives, Great Britain ( 2 Dec 1942)

Wing Commander Archibald James: asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he will make representations to the heads of foreign Governments established in this country pointing out the undesirability of Ministers and officials in those Governments making intrusions into the domestic party politics of this country?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign Government Representatives, Great Britain ( 2 Dec 1942)

Wing Commander Archibald James: Is my right hon. Friend aware that a week before last a lady called Madame Isobel Blum, and described as a Minister in the Belgian Government, came to my constituency and not only took part in a political meeting but made the most contentious references to the Constitution of her own country?
