Orders of the Day — Prices and Incomes (Joseph Bourne and Son LTD.) (15 Mar 1967)

Mr Arthur Newens: I do not wish to delay the House for very long, but I think it appropriate that an hon. Member on this side should speak on this Order. As I understood the Government's prices and incomes policy, it had as one of its objectives the giving of justice to the lower-paid workers. Nobody can maintain that the workers whom we are now discussing are other than lower paid. Pottery workers are not...

Orders of the Day — Prices and Incomes (Joseph Bourne and Son LTD.) (15 Mar 1967)

Mr Arthur Newens: At the same time, having made these points, I still am in the position in which I feel I am quite unable to support the Government in the Division Lobbies this evening, and it is not merely on this Order that I take this point of view.

Mr Arthur Newens: Is the hon. Gentleman aware that, according to the N.U.T. questionnaire, the average income per month of a teacher aged between 20 and 24 was £47 net, and that between the ages of 25 and 29 it was only £65 net?

Orders of the Day — Primary Education (Plowden Report) (16 Mar 1967)

Mr Arthur Newens: Some of the Plowden proposals would involve enormous expense, but others would not exert such a heavy pressure on the taxpayer. I am thinking of the proposals relating to improving relations between parents and teachers. Relations could be much improved without outlay to the extent that some of the proposals would involve. My hon. Friend the Member for Middleton and Prestwich (Mr. Coe)...

Orders of the Day — Primary Education (Plowden Report) (16 Mar 1967)

Mr Arthur Newens: I agree entirely. The more parents know about education, the more willing they are to have greater public expenditure on the promotion of education projects. There is also the need—this, too, is pointed to in the Plowden Report—to draw together the social and education services much more. I refer here to the vital rôle played by the education welfare officers. I applaud the efforts...
