Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Foreign Language Teachers (26 Apr 1983)

Mr Arthur Newens: Does the Minister recognise that the enforcement of staffing ratios in response to falling rolls means that many schools are dispensing with teachers of minority subjects?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (12 May 1983)

Mr Arthur Newens: Does the Prime Minister regard the huge increase in unemployment, the serious decline in manufacturing output, the increases in taxation for the lower paid, the vast number of company liquidations and the savage cuts in the social services and in house building as compatible with the extravagant promises that she made at the last general election? In those circumstances, how on earth does she...
