National Service (Foreign Countries) Bill. (28 Jul 1942)

Wing Commander Archibald James: There are one or two points on this Bill on which I also would like a little information. I was surprised and disappointed at the almost apologetic way in which the Minister introduced the Bill. I should have thought he required no excuse at all; it should have been introduced long ago. Primarily the Bill may be dealing in the ultimate resort with a very undeserving class of citizen. The...

National Service (Foreign Countries) Bill. (28 Jul 1942)

Wing Commander Archibald James: I go further than that. I know the old argument that one cannot take away a person's passport and leave him Stateless. Why not in this Bill establish a much-needed and valuable principle? Let us have second-class citizenship. Let these people be allowed to keep their passports but be deprived of their civil rights. I ask the right hon. and learned Gentleman the Leader of the House whether it...

National Service (Foreign Countries) Bill. (28 Jul 1942)

Wing Commander Archibald James: Surely the hon. Member cannot read into what I have said any such suggestion as that? It may be a good debating point, but it bears no relation whatever to what I said.

National Service (Foreign Countries) Bill. (28 Jul 1942)

Wing Commander Archibald James: Surely the Attorney-General will know that in many foreign countries persons possessing British passports have never been in this country and have no intention of coming to this country? Such persons are a great nuisance, particularly in war-time, because they seek our protection and take full advantage of our citizenship. Such persons will be subject to no sanction whatever. I think the...

National Service (Foreign Countries) Bill. (28 Jul 1942)

Wing Commander Archibald James: The right hon and learned Gentleman misquoted me. I did not suggest the withdrawal of nationality, but I said citizenship, and the two things are not exactly the same.

Wing Commander Archibald James: asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food whether he is aware that children who for medical reasons are unable to attend school cannot, even upon the certificate of a doctor, obtain the milk to which children attending schools are entitled; and whether speedy step will be taken to alter the regulations to meet the cases of children suffering from protracted disabilities?

Central Direction of the War. ( 1 Jul 1942)

Wing Commander Archibald James: I do not wish to follow what has been said by the hon. Member for Elland (Mr. Levy). I could not. In the course of the speech of the Minister of Production an hon. Member sitting behind me leaned forward and observed that there appeared to be one qualification at least for becoming excited, and expressing strong opinions, upon technical military matters—to have been a conscientious objector...

Central Direction of the War. ( 1 Jul 1942)

Wing Commander Archibald James: I tried to make my argument plain by a little homily on the meaning of the word "strategy." Having had my ear reasonably close to the ground, I have not heard any confirmation to justify the suspicion.

Central Direction of the War. ( 1 Jul 1942)

Wing Commander Archibald James: That would obviously be interference at the second or third level and, if the case was established, I should be proved wrong, but I am asserting that since my return to England I have heard no evidence of interference, though I have been expecting and looking for it. But that does not mean that the machine is necessarily perfect. I believe that a certain progressive evolution is desirable. It...

Oral Answers to Questions — Atlantic Charter. ( 4 Jun 1942)

Orders of the Day — Freedom of the Press. (26 Mar 1942)

Wing Commander Archibald James: The right hon. Gentleman the Member for Devonport (Mr. Hore-Belisha) referred to this House being excessively vigilant. After listening to the whole of this Debate my impression is that, on this occasion, a comparatively small number of very sincere Members are being excessively vigilant. I believe that the majority of the House take this view. Personally, I support the action of the...
