Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Information: Sir William Beveridge (Broadcast Report of Speech) ( 2 Dec 1942)

Wing Commander Archibald James: In view of the way in which Sir William Beveridge had already been misrepresented on another occasion, does not the right hon. Gentleman think it very unfortunate that while the 9 o'clock news bulletin gave a perfectly fair report of an extremely interesting address the 6 o'clock bulletin made it appear that Sir William Beveridge had made a merely Socialistic speech to the Fabian Society?

Orders of the Day — Royal Observer Corps Centres (Men over 50) (25 Nov 1942)

Wing Commander Archibald James: I think the agitation and anxiety on this matter were due to a misunderstanding. I have taken a great interest in the Royal Observer Corps for a long time, and I have had an opportunity of seeing something of their work. There has, of course, been great unevenness in the efficient operation of the Corps which has to be levelled out. A new and hand-picked officer—not a Regular but an...

Wing Commander Archibald James: asked the Minister of Fuel and Power whether he has now completed his inquiries into the itinerary of the Dean of Canterbury during his recent visit to Smethwick and other places, partly on ecclesiastical matters, partly in order to attend meetings; what justified the granting to him of petrol vouchers to cover upwards of 300 miles for the journey instead of using ordinary alternative means...

Debates (Selection of Speakers) ( 8 Oct 1942)

Wing Commander Archibald James: This matter raises the question of the rights and Privileges of private Members, which are in your particular charge, Mr. Speaker. May I, therefore, put this point? I understand from your reply that there are no channels peculiar to one side of the House and not to the other. Therefore, it is just a matter of equal chance at your discretion to decide from which side of the House private...

Jews (Fighting Services). ( 6 Aug 1942)

Wing Commander Archibald James: It will be conceded that the outstanding speech in this Debate so far has come from the hon. Member for Cheltenham (Mr. Lipson). I think it will be generally agreed that if all Jewry had his standpoint and qualities there would be no such thing as anti-Semitism in the world. Unfortunately this issue is really promoted by the extreme Zionist organisations, and nobody can doubt that who has...

Jews (Fighting Services). ( 6 Aug 1942)

Wing Commander Archibald James: Before the summons to another place, I had observed that the full Zionist case was to stake a claim upon Palestine for the post-war period. It is made quite plain to anybody who takes the trouble to read the current Jewish Press that they are trading upon the appalling sufferings of the Jews in Europe to press this very, specific demand. It is most important to distinguish clearly between...

Jews (Fighting Services). ( 6 Aug 1942)

Wing Commander Archibald James: I apologise. I do not want to misrepresent the hon. Member, but the hon. and gallant Member for Chippenham certainly so represented it, as did the hon. and gallant Member for Handsworth (Commander Locker-Lampson). I do not know whether this is true or not. I have not been to America for a long time. If it were the case, provided that it meant that the United States of America are prepared to...

Jews (Fighting Services). ( 6 Aug 1942)

Wing Commander Archibald James: I am afraid I have failed to make myself clear to the hon. Lady. I referred to the depressed 9,500,000 Jews in South-Eastern Europe and argued that Palestine would never be able to hold them. I referred quite separately to the American interests and to British Zionists and asked how many of these people were themselves able to settle in Palestine, and I do not think that there was any...

Clause 1. — (Power to impose military service on British subjects in foreign countries.) (29 Jul 1942)

Wing Commander Archibald James: I beg to move, in page 1, line 22, after "exercised," to insert: or penalty for failure to perform any obligation imposed. As this and the following Amendment hang together, perhaps it will meet the wishes of the Committee if I deal with them simultaneously. As the Minister made plain when he produced it, this Bill was primarily designed to deal with the situation in Egypt, and my contention...

Clause 1. — (Power to impose military service on British subjects in foreign countries.) (29 Jul 1942)

Wing Commander Archibald James: May I ask how it is proposed to deal with those persons whose existence as British subjects is not known to the authorities and who may, at some subsequent date, come back without our knowing that they are there at all? How will that be dealt with?
