Oral Answers to Questions — Government Departments.: Ex-Ministers and Diplomats (Press Contributions). (17 Mar 1942)

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Expenditure Arising Out of the War. (10 Mar 1942)

Wing Commander Archibald James: As far as I have been able to listen to the Debate, I think that not sufficient has been said about the lamentable failure of the Chancellor of the Exchequer in one or two very important directions, and I propose to be critical for a few moments. It seems to me that the Chancellor of the Exchequer, as long as he has been in that office, has failed lamentably to curb extravagance and to look...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Expenditure Arising Out of the War. (10 Mar 1942)

Wing Commander Archibald James: I gave specific details, chapter and verse, to the appropriate Department of the Ministry of Labour, to which the Minister of Labour referred me, and they have been checked and could not be denied. Will my hon. Friend accept that? If he likes to see me afterwards, I will give him a file which will enable him to see for himself whether I am accurate or not. I was referring to this matter only...

Oral Answers to Questions — Boxing Entertainments. ( 5 Mar 1942)

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Sir Archibald Sinclair's Statement. ( 4 Mar 1942)

Wing Commander Archibald James: I take the view that it is a great mistake that these Service Estimates should now be debated in Public Session. It seems to me that little can be said by the Secretary of State for Air or by anyone taking part in the Debate which is not either helpful to the enemy or boring to the House. I wish the Secretary of State for Air, who made a brilliant speech under great limitations, would report...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education.: India (Constitution). (26 Feb 1942)

Wing Commander Archibald James: asked the Secretary of State for India whether he will give an assurance that in any con- sideration for political adjustment in India, due weight will be given to safeguarding the interests of the primitive tribes, as defined in Order in Council, No. 166, of 1936, made under Chapter V, Clauses 91 and 92 of the Government of India Act of 1935, relating to the excluded and partially excluded...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education.: India (Constitution). (26 Feb 1942)

Wing Commander Archibald James: Would the right hon. Gentleman always bear in mind that, when the appropriate Clauses and Schedules of the India Bill were under discussion, anxiety was expressed from all parts of the House that the interests of the primitive tribes might be specially safeguarded?

Orders of the Day — Ministers of the Crown and House of Commons Disquali Fication Bill. (18 Feb 1942)

Wing Commander Archibald James: I hope that in view of the very short time which is to elapse between the Second Reading and the Committee stage we shall be allowed some slight latitude in our remarks on the Second Reading. I only want to bring two points to the notice of the Attorney-General. The first is this: Efforts have always been made to keep separate the judiciary and the Executive, and more recently an effort has...

Orders of the Day — Ministers of the Crown and House of Commons Disquali Fication Bill. (18 Feb 1942)

Wing Commander Archibald James: I was going to show that there might be a connection at a later stage.

Orders of the Day — Ministers of the Crown and House of Commons Disquali Fication Bill. (18 Feb 1942)

Wing Commander Archibald James: I accept your Ruling. The other point is the question of the employment in the Ministries of Press officers. I think they are called public relations officers. It is surely notorious at the present time that in one Ministry especially the Minister uses his Press officer not only to publicise and popularise the work of his Ministry, but even to popularise himself.

Orders of the Day — Ministers of the Crown and House of Commons Disquali Fication Bill. (18 Feb 1942)

Wing Commander Archibald James: I will withdraw on both counts, but I hope I have made my points plain.

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Broadcasting (Overseas Services). (17 Feb 1942)

Wing Commander Archibald James: Some interesting questions have been raised by my hon. Friend who has just made such an admirable speech about the personalities behind these broadcasts. It is a subject on which we want some light. Our broadcasts are being brought into contempt in present circumstances, especially if those allowed to speak have notoriously and flagrantly avoided their military obligations. Is it not the case...

Oral Answers to Questions — Service Estimates (Debate). (12 Feb 1942)

Oral Answers to Questions — Civil Defence.: Hugo Friedberger. ( 5 Feb 1942)
