Orders of the Day — Unemployment (24 Jan 1972)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: The Prime Minister so rarely gives way to me.

What does the Prime Minister intend to do about that?

Orders of the Day — Supply: Rhodesia (26 Jan 1972)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: Since Mr. Smith does not seem to be honouring the bargain regarding normal political activities, why should we trust him regarding the rest of the package?

Orders of the Day — Supply: Rhodesia (26 Jan 1972)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: I hope that the hon. Member for Cannock (Mr. Cormack) will forgive me if I follow his remarks only in brevity. I am sure he will agree that this debate has been an example of normal political activity at its best. This has been exemplified by the speeches of the right hon. Member for Taunton (Mr. du Cann) and my hon. Friend the Member for Portsmouth, West (Mr. Judd). This is a debate about...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Metropolitan Police (Disclosure of Information) (27 Jan 1972)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: I am grateful for that reply, but will the Minister impress upon the Metropolitan Police the serious view taken in the House when an hon. Member is reported as having been breathalysed because of his condition—I think that was the phrasing—and when that information appears to emanate from or be corroborated by the police? Will he impress upon the Metropolitan Police that tests of breath...

Mr Phillip Whitehead: asked the Prime Minister if he will make an official visit to Derby.

Oral Answers to Questions — Derby (27 Jan 1972)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: I wish to congratulate the Prime Minister about that. It will preserve him for the time being from the wrath of the unemployed there. Will the right hon. Gentleman tell the 4,800 unemployed there what he failed to tell me in the recent economic debate: what remedy he has for the problem of structural unemployment which is now affecting thousands of skilled workers in Derby and throughout the...

Mr Phillip Whitehead: asked the Minister of Posts and Telecommunications what communications he has received from the organisers of Radio Jackie about the operation of the law relating to broadcasting.

Oral Answers to Questions — Posts and Telecommunications: Radio Jackie (9 Feb 1972)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: I am very surprised at that answer because I think that most hon. Members have received this communication from Radio Jackie giving an address at East Molesey, Surrey, and stating its policies for this illegal radio station. Will the Minister tell the House what steps have been taken to curb this illicit radio station, or is he simply complacently regarding this as a rather unusual bid for...

Mr Phillip Whitehead: asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what information has now been supplied to him by the Pearce Commission regarding the policy of testing opinion on the proposed Rhodesian settlement by unscheduled stops in outlying areas; and if he will make a statement.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Rhodesia (14 Feb 1972)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: Would the right hon. Gentleman convey to the Pearce Commission that if the report of its intention to alter its schedule to avoid intimidation at the meetings which it visits is correct. this has two serious disadvantages in the job that the Commission is doing? First, the Commission is accepting the Smith régime's valuation of intimidation as coming on the African side and, secondly, by not...

Mr Phillip Whitehead: Will the hon. Gentleman reiterate that it is the policy of the Government to support Rolls-Royce in the maintenance work it is doing—and doing well?

Orders of the Day — Supply: Chronically Sick and Disabled Persons (21 Feb 1972)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: I take up what was said by the hon. Member for Pembroke (Mr. Nicholas Edwards) only to the extent of saying that I, too, appreciate the difficulty, which he overcame by being partisan in declaring that this is not a partisan debate, of bringing matters of direct party concern into dispute. We all agree that this is not a subject on which hon. Members should speak with the voice of party....

Orders of the Day — Supply: Chronically Sick and Disabled Persons (21 Feb 1972)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: Yes, my hon. Friend the Member for Caerphilly (Mr. Fred Evans) has already made that point. All of us have noted that the Post Office Engineering Union has shown a rather greater sweep of imagination than have the Secretary of State and his Department. We can count the cost of such a provision only when we have the general register, which has often been discussed—it has been discussed...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Aerospace Industry(Components and Spares) (28 Feb 1972)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: Would the hon. Gentleman accept that, heartening as the figures which he has given for the Lockheed 1011 are, the position of the 1011 would be much improved if the Government would now authorised the go-ahead for an updated version of the RB211 engine?

Clause 1: Rolls-Royce LTD. (RB211 Aero-Engine) (29 Feb 1972)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: The whole House owes a debt of gratitude to my hon. Friend the Member for West Lothian (Mr. Dalyell) for raising this important subject. Hon. Members on this side take with a pinch of salt the protestations of the Treasury Bench that they are unprepared to answer the debate. Had the Government felt any urgency in debating the lessons of the White Paper, Government time would have been found....

Clause 1: Rolls-Royce LTD. (RB211 Aero-Engine) (29 Feb 1972)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: I appreciate that, and I accept that this is a situation where everyone is watching everyone else. But the Government are a prime mover in a sense in that they would put up the money. What kind of time-scale does the right hon. Gentleman think will be involved before a decision is made?
