Orders of the Day — King's Speech.: Debate on the Address. (29 Nov 1939)

Wing Commander Archibald James: I confess that I feel very much out of touch with this House. It has been my good fortune to have been mobilised since the first day of the war, and I have been living in a very different atmosphere to that which I find on the very rare occasions when I return to Westminster. I wish to express one or two views of one who admits that he is out of touch with this House. I do not believe that...

Orders of the Day — King's Speech.: Debate on the Address. (29 Nov 1939)

Wing Commander Archibald James: I will not be led aside by the hon. Gentleman. The last war showed that different qualities are needed in peace to those needed in war. It is no discredit for a man who has served his country eminently in peace to be unfitted to share in leading it in war. They are two different things. It is true not only of politics, but also of the fighting Services. We have not yet under pressure of war,...

Wing Commander Archibald James: asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether, in view of the recent experience in the Middle East and in certain foreign countries, he will call to the attention of the Government of India the extravagance and loss of efficiency that ensues from mechanising too large a part of a mobile force, and point out to them the need for retaining an adequate proportion of cavalry in the Indian Army?

Orders of the Day — Camps Bill.: Clause 3 — (Exemption from building restrictions.) (20 Apr 1939)

Wing Commander Archibald James: On the Second Reading of the Bill the hon. Member for Derby (Mr. Noel-Baker) and others emphasised that in their view it was necessary that these camps should be camouflaged against air attack. I wish to express exactly the contrary view. I believe that nothing would be worse than that these camps should be concealed. Indeed, I think that their positions should be publicly announced and that...

Civil Estimates, Supplementary Estimate, 1938.: Foreign Office. (20 Mar 1939)

Wing Commander Archibald James: I came into the House without the slightest intention of intervening in the Debate, but really I cannot allow some of the things which the right hon. Gentleman has said to pass without comment. He says that he is interested in the status of British shipping. So are we all; and we can all combine to deplore the tragedy which overtook Captain Richards in Palma Harbour. But he also said that we...

Civil Estimates, Supplementary Estimate, 1938.: Foreign Office. (20 Mar 1939)

Wing Commander Archibald James: I dare say that these so-called British traders have made protests, but consider the facts in regard to these ships. On 28th February last I put a question on the status of these ships, and the answer was that up to that date 99 vessels flying the British flag had been more or less seriously damaged in Spanish waters, that of these 99 vessels only 27 belonged to the same British owners before...

Wing Commander Archibald James: My contention is that an entirely new situation has arisen in this civil war.
