Oral Answers to Questions — British Army: Apprentice Training School, Woolwich (10 Apr 1963)

Sir Isaac Pitman: While greatly welcoming that decision, may I ask my right hon. Friend whether he will consult also with his right hon. Friend the Minister of Education? One of the finest technical colleges in the country is there, and colleges of further education in the adjoining areas are very good indeed. Would my right hon. Friend consult the Minister of Education to see if he might supplement the work...

Orders of the Day — Disarmament (23 Jul 1962)

Sir Isaac Pitman: I am sure that everyone in the House will wish me to congratulate the hon. and learned Member for Montgomery (Mr. Hooson) very sincerely indeed on his speech and on the lovely constituency which he has the honour to represent. We also welcome him to that fortunately very considerable group of people in this House to whom we all listen with very great attention, because what they say is always...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Backward Readers (5 Jul 1962)

Business of the House (5 Jul 1962)

Sir Isaac Pitman: Is it possible to deal with the early day Motion in the name of my hon. Friend the Member for Mitcham (Mr. R. Carr) in respect of monopolise created by take-over bids? My right hon. Friend the Member for Reigate (Sir J. Vaughan-Morgan) received an assurance on a previous Thursday which was rather encouraging, and since the House is very anxious to discuss the fact that the Government have no...

Landlord and Tenant Bill (23 Mar 1962)

Sir Isaac Pitman: I congratulate my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Nottingham, Central (Lieut-Colonel Cordeaux) and welcome the Bill. Let me take this question of the difficulty of Clause 3 in comparison with the comparable difficulty in respect of nominees holding shares in companies. I think that we have got to recognise that we are living in a practical world, and that if Mr. Khrushchev wants to...

Landlord and Tenant Bill (23 Mar 1962)

Sir Isaac Pitman: I think that it should be put on record that Section 151 of the Law of Property Act gives the tenant whose landlord assigned his interest the absolute right to withhold his rent until he has been informed of the name and address of that landlord. That does what is wanted in this Bill in the case of assignment. It is only in the case of the original tenant that one needs this Bill.

Monopolies Divestment (13 Mar 1962)

Sir Isaac Pitman: I beg to move, That leave be given to bring in a Bill to give to the Board of Trade power to require a limited liability company to divest itself of shares in any wholly or partly-owned subsidiary or associated company where the Monopolies Commission have ruled that the ownership of such shares is monopolistic in character and harmful to the public interest. The House, and particularly the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Spelling Reform (1 Mar 1962)

Sir Isaac Pitman: Does not the Minister agree, without prejudice to that prejudice, (that the advantage of the alphabet lies only in the learning process, and if it is discovered in this country that the learning process is fostered by developing the alphabet alphabetic ally, as it were, would it not be a good thing to use it also for the process of learning the English language, having regard to the fact that...

Orders of the Day — Education Bill: Clause 1. — (Local Education Authority Awards for First Degree Uni Versity Courses and Comparable Courses in United Kingdom.) (21 Feb 1962)

Sir Isaac Pitman: I beg to move, in page 1, line 14, to leave out "full-time". The object of the Amendment is to delete "full-time" and the object in doing so, in effect, to insert "part-time", as provided for in the Amendment of the hon. Member for Sunderland, North (Mr. Willey), and is calculated to deal only with degree courses at universities. I am on the Court of Governors of the London School of...

Orders of the Day — Education Bill: Clause 1. — (Local Education Authority Awards for First Degree Uni Versity Courses and Comparable Courses in United Kingdom.) (21 Feb 1962)

Sir Isaac Pitman: Are we not overlooking the fact that subsection (3) gives the Minister power to meet all the arguments which he is advancing? Cannot regulations prescribe anything to do with the amount? If he chooses, can he not transfer the students back to Clause 2 which says that payment is to be in the decision of the authority bestowing the award? Are we not wasting time over this?

Orders of the Day — Education Bill: Clause 1. — (Local Education Authority Awards for First Degree Uni Versity Courses and Comparable Courses in United Kingdom.) (21 Feb 1962)

Sir Isaac Pitman: I used to get extremely indignant in the 1945 Parliament when I was in Opposition because I thought Ministers were both stupid and obstinate in their stupidity. Now we have got a jolly good Minister of Education, but I am afraid that the choice between whether I am being stupid and obstinate or he is must be made by the Committee in the Division Lobby. I hope, Sir Robert, that you will give...

Orders of the Day — EDUCATION (Recommitted) BILL (21 Feb 1962)

Sir Isaac Pitman: We were discussing where we should draw the line in these items and which should go for the mandatory solution and which should go for the permissive solution. I was developing the argument that it was most desirable that that line should be drawn in university education at the first degree point. Whether it is part-time or whole-time is wholly irrelevant. The difficulties to be found in...

Business of the House (15 Feb 1962)

Sir Isaac Pitman: I should like to support that request still further on the ground that the Motion goes right to the root of what is to be debated at the eighteen-Power conference and the whole of the disarmament issue, in that we have got absolutely nowhere with disarmament, and the ideas in the Motion seem to offer the only possible hope of progress in the future.

Business of the House (8 Feb 1962)

Sir Isaac Pitman: Will my right hon. Friend recognise that in last Monday's debate it was made quite clear that on both sides of the House there is a great deal to be contributed on what might be done in regard to the United Nations? Would the Government consider the Motion, signed by a large number of hon. Members, asking the Government to consider what they might do to carry out improvements to the United...

Disarmament and Nuclear Tests (8 Feb 1962)

Sir Isaac Pitman: In view of the disappointing record of what has been achieved in disarmament during the last seventeen years that the Prime Minister mentioned, and in the period before the war—indeed, really going back to Charlemagne—is it not perfectly evident that the present methods of approach to disarmament are either quite impossible with nations that are sovereign States, or that they cannot give...
