Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Polytechnics (Control) (19 Nov 1974)

Dr Jim Marshall: Is my right hon. Friend aware of the policy difficulties and differences now becoming apparent between certain polytechnics and their local education authorities? Will he ensure that those differences of opinion do not adversely affect the future well-being and development of those polytechnics?

Orders of the Day — Education Bill (15 Nov 1974)

Dr Jim Marshall: Is my right hon. Friend aware that if two students are living separately they receive an aggregate income of £1,210, but that if they enter into the state of matrimonial bliss their combined income is reduced by about £250. That seems to be a large price to pay for not living in sin.

Orders of the Day — Education Bill (15 Nov 1974)

Dr Jim Marshall: I wish to direct my few remarks to Clauses 1 and 2 of the Bill. There seems to be a fair degree of unanimity about the virtues implicit in Clause 3, as indicated by the degree of agreement between my hon. Friends and hon. Members opposite who have already spoken.

Orders of the Day — General Rate Bill (7 Nov 1974)

Dr Jim Marshall: I was fortunate enough to catch Mr. Deputy Speaker's eye last Tuesday, so that I have made my maiden speech, but I still crave the indulgence of the House in case on occasions my inexperience shows through. I listened with interest and some sympathy to the views of the hon. Member for Hornsey (Mr. Rossi), but I utterly dissociate myself from his general politics. I have been active in...

Orders of the Day — General Rate Bill (7 Nov 1974)

Dr Jim Marshall: I said that my arithmetic left something to be desired. Be that as it may, it is naive for the Opposition to pretend that in our difficult economic situation they would have transferred that burden of £1,000 million from the local ratepayer to the income tax payer.

Orders of the Day — General Rate Bill (7 Nov 1974)

Dr Jim Marshall: I am not suggesting that. I am suggesting that the Conservative Party during the recent election was trying to bribe the electorate. I hope to deal with the point raised by the hon. Gentleman later in my speech. My experience in local government has given me a deep belief in its ability to work for the common good. Local government is responsible for about 30 per cent. of total expenditure....

Debate on the Address (29 Oct 1974)

Dr Jim Marshall: "Another maiden speech", I thought I heard my hon. Friend the Member for Keighley (Mr. Cryer) murmur. I understand that it is a custom of the House to mention by name one's predecessor. I follow that hallowed custom and name my predecessor, who was Mr. Tom Boardman, perhaps a name not unknown to the House and throughout the country. He was also well known as one of the leading lights of the...
