Orders of the Day — National Service Bill. (10 Dec 1941)

Wing Commander Archibald James: I understand that at a later stage provision is to be made whereby all aliens in this country will be brought into line with those of enemy origin.

Business of the House. (27 Nov 1941)

Orders of the Day — King's Speech. (25 Nov 1941)

I think there has been a certain amount of anxiety about the absence of a second front, an anxiety which I believe was misplaced and which has been very unwisely fostered by one or two former...

Orders of the Day — King's Speech. (25 Nov 1941)

Wing Commander Archibald James: I said on a 48-hour week before the war.

Orders of the Day — King's Speech. (25 Nov 1941)

Wing Commander Archibald James: I do not know. I hope that the hon.

Orders of the Day — King's Speech. (25 Nov 1941)

Wing Commander Archibald James: I hope I have said enough to stimulate interest in the subject. There is one general remark that I will make which anyone can check, namely, that, all over the countryside, wherever aerodromes have been constructed, men and boys, and particularly boys, can go from ordinary local employment and straight away earn two, three or four times as much as they have done up to date in ordinary...

Orders of the Day — King's Speech. (25 Nov 1941)
