Mr Fred Silvester: As it is two years since the initial experiment, is my right hon. Friend satisfied that enough progress is being made with this scheme, which was welcomed by both the C.B.I. and the Schools Councils? What further steps has she in mind for stimulating it still further?

Mr Fred Silvester: asked the Postmaster-General how many attacks during working hours were made by thieves on sub-post offices in the Greater London area in 1967 and in 1968; what injuries were sustained by sub-postmasters and their staffs; and what was the total value of the goods stolen.

Oral Answers to Questions — Post Office: Sub-Offices (Attacks) (25 Apr 1968)

Mr Fred Silvester: Although the Postmaster-General has indicated that in many cases there were no serious injuries to staff in that period, is he aware that there is much apprehension amongst the staff of sub-post offices in crime-prone areas? Will he now reconsider the statement he has made twice today to the effect that he will not bear the full cost of the loss as a result of these banditries?

Town and Country Planning Bill (31 Jan 1968)

Mr Fred Silvester: The hon. Member for Chisle-hurst (Mr. Macdonald) spoke about compensation in cases of planning blight. I prefer the view of the hon. Members for Cardiff, North (Mr. E. Rowlands) and Erith and Crayford (Mr. Wellbeloved). It may be true that the local authority does not have a bottomless purse, but it has a duty to ensure that those personally affected by its plans and suggested plans are not...

Town and Country Planning Bill (31 Jan 1968)

Mr Fred Silvester: In this case the local authority did not refuse outright. I understand that in the situation suggested by the hon. Member the authority would be liable to pay money, to give some sort of compensation. In some cases an authority is liable to pay compensation for not granting planning permission. In this case the authority made a decision and varied it. The person concerned was forced to make...

Civil Estimates, Supplementary Estimates 1967–68: Transport Boards (22 Jan 1968)

Mr Fred Silvester: If I may speak briefly about an impression which has struck me from the debate, which is the first time that I have heard a debate on Supplementary Estimates on the railways, it has become clear as various hon. Members have spoken that the basic factor behind this new Supplementary Estimate has been the intervention of the Government in the management of British Railways. One of the dangers...

Orders of the Day — Education Bill (12 Dec 1967)

Mr Fred Silvester: The constituency to which I have just been elected is diminishing in size— the Boundary Commission is constantly looking at it with reforming zeal—but the House will agree that it is showing in its old age a continued independence of spirit. Part of this is due to the work of former Members and candidates, whose work I have the honour to inherit. The House will know that Earl Attlee one...

Orders of the Day — Education Bill (12 Dec 1967)

Mr Fred Silvester: I think it is true that there is not enough public interest in education, or at least we can agree that we would like more of it. If we rush too much we may damage any enthusiasm which has been aroused, and demoralise those people who devote trouble and time to education. This is something we should seriously seek to avoid. There is another danger in rushing. We cannot over-emphasise the...
