Oral Answers to Questions — Roads: Mitcham Corner, Cambridge (9 Feb 1966)

Sir Hamilton Kerr: As the work is urgent, what estimate can the hon. Gentleman give of when he hopes that it will be completed?

Grants to Universities and Colleges (Estimates Committee's Reports) (26 Jan 1966)

Sir Hamilton Kerr: The hon. Member for West Lothian (Mr. Dalyell) has referred to a crisis of confidence in the University of Glasgow. I shall confine my short speech to another crisis, though of a very different nature, which has arisen between the city authorities of Oxford and Cambridge and the universities themselves. On 25th February, 1964, under the Ten Minute Rule, I submitted to the House a Private...

Oral Answers to Questions — Public Building and Works: Whitehall Plan (20 Dec 1965)

Sir Hamilton Kerr: asked the Minister of Public Buildings and Works what representations he has received for a public inquiry into the proposals for the redevelopment of Whitehall.

Oral Answers to Questions — Public Building and Works: Whitehall Plan (20 Dec 1965)

Sir Hamilton Kerr: Since the Whitehall area is the special responsibility of Parliament, and, therefore, not subject to the normal processes of inquiry, is the right hon. Gentleman satisfied that every aspect has been adequately studied, such as accessibility to the proposed precinct for Members of Parliament and the proposed waterside tunnel under the Terrace?

Orders of the Day — Foreign Affairs (20 Dec 1965)

Sir Hamilton Kerr: As I intend to take the advice of my hon. Friend the Member for Cheltenham (Mr. Dodds-Parker) and talk for less than 10 minutes, I hope that the hon. Member for West Lothian (Mr. Dalyell) will forgive if I do not follow him up on some aspects of Far Eastern policy. Like many of his hon. Friends, he seems highly critical of Government policy and, by inference, of the Foreign Secretary. Perhaps...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Museums and Galleries (Hours of Opening) (16 Dec 1965)

Sir Hamilton Kerr: asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if a decision has been reached in regard to the opening of museums and galleries so as to enable children to visit them after school and working hours.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Museums and Galleries (Hours of Opening) (16 Dec 1965)

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Arts Centres (Historic Houses) (16 Dec 1965)

Sir Hamilton Kerr: asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what steps have been taken to implement paragraph 53 of the White Paper. Policy on the Arts, Command Paper No. 2601, with a view to adapting historic houses in charge of Government Departments as centres of the arts.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Arts Centres (Historic Houses) (16 Dec 1965)

Sir Hamilton Kerr: Will the hon. Lady consider the experience of the Geffrye Museum in the Whitechapel Road where a craft centre is attached which makes the museum not only a centre for beautiful objects but of creative activity at the same time?

Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No. 2) BILL: Clause 16 — (Amendments of Case Vii of Schedule D.) (24 May 1965)

Sir Hamilton Kerr: My right hon. Friend the Member for Harrogate (Mr. Ramsden) asked why the Government had chosen this moment to introduce a new form of tax. Perhaps I can give the answer. It becomes more and more obvious as consideration of the Finance Bill proceeds that it owes its inspiration to one of those new and mysterious figures who glide down the corridors of power. I refer to none other than my...

Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No. 2) BILL: Clause 16 — (Amendments of Case Vii of Schedule D.) (24 May 1965)

Sir Hamilton Kerr: I am sure that he will be far from a short-term gain to the Labour Party when these measures are discovered. I come back to the point about the Chancellor of the Exchequer. I am surprised that he has introduced this Clause. I think that it offends against his central thesis and the principle of his Budget. He has claimed that he wishes to expand exports and to reduce unnecessary expenditure...

Government Support for the Arts (27 Apr 1965)

Sir Hamilton Kerr: The hon. Member for South Shields (Mr. Blenkinsop) made a wise choice when he used his good fortune in the Ballot to put down this Motion, and I warmly commend him for doing so. I want to reinforce his reference to the British Film Institute. As a former governor, I know the valuable work which it does. The National Film Archive is an immensely important addition to our national history. I...

Orders of the Day — Oxford and Cambridge Colleges (Rate Relief) (25 Mar 1965)

Sir Hamilton Kerr: I want briefly, on behalf of the City of Cambridge, to reinforce the points so admirably put by my hon. Friend the Member for Oxford (Mr. Woodhouse) and, in so doing, I shall try to maintain the tone he set which was in a spirit of inquiry and not of acrimony. I will not repeat the points so clearly made on the events leading up to the present discussion. I will only remind hon. Members that...

Orders of the Day — Oxford and Cambridge Colleges (Rate Relief) (25 Mar 1965)

Sir Hamilton Kerr: I wished only to mention that in passing. Unfortunately, the Bill was dropped. Friday after Friday there were cries of "Object", "Object". I withdrew the Bill on the understanding that my right hon. Friend the Member for Leeds, North-East(Sir K. Joseph), the Minister at the time, would initiate discussions between the college bursars and the respective city authorities of Oxford and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Oxford and Cambridge Colleges (Rates) (2 Feb 1965)

Sir Hamilton Kerr: May I ask the Minister to bear in mind that the problem relating to college rates applies equally to Cambridge and that the extra burden borne by the ratepayers has caused most undesirable friction between the city and the university?

Bills Presented: Recreation and Leisure (Facilities) (4 Dec 1964)

Sir Hamilton Kerr: It is always a pleasure to follow my right hon. Friend the Member for Derby, South (Mr. Philip Noel-Baker). I call him my right hon. Friend deliberately, because this is a non-party debate and because I am always grateful to him for, in my alas! far-distant youth, teaching me some of the secrets of the running track. In Parliament I have run discreetly behind him, although on the running...

Bills Presented: Recreation and Leisure (Facilities) (4 Dec 1964)

Sir Hamilton Kerr: I am grateful to the hon. Member. I shall be very brief in my reference to the arts, but the subject is included in the Motion. Perhaps the hon. Member will be good enough to convey to his hon. Friends some of the points which I wish briefly to make.

Bills Presented: Recreation and Leisure (Facilities) (4 Dec 1964)

Sir Hamilton Kerr: Perhaps we do not fully realise in this country what a wonderful privilege we enjoy as citizens. This country is a veritable Aladdin's Cave of treasures, mainly owing to the fact that we have not seen a war actually fought on the soil of England since Bonnie Prince Charlie turned back at Melbourne, south of Derby, in 1745. This has provided an immense wealth of both public and private...
