Oral Answers to Questions — Food Supplies: Fruit and Vegetables (Distribution) (30 Jul 1951)

Miss Elaine Burton: Does the Parliamentary Secretary recall that these two Questions are not the same?

Oral Answers to Questions — Food Supplies: Fruit and Vegetables (Distribution) (30 Jul 1951)

Orders of the Day — Education (24 Jul 1951)

Miss Elaine Burton: I should like to echo the last statement made by the hon. Member for Chelmsford (Mr. Ashton) that party political prejudice should not enter education. I am particularly pleased that the right hon. Lady the Member for Moss Side (Miss Horsbrugh), who opened the debate, is still present.

Orders of the Day — Education (24 Jul 1951)

Miss Elaine Burton: I could not see how the right hon. Lady, who nods her head in agreement, could object to us on this side of the Committee talking of the present age as that of the common man or of the common child. I speak from experience. I taught for 11 years in what we used to call the elementary school where I came into contact with the less fortunate, financially, of the people of this country. What I...
