Elections (Validity of Nomination Papers): Radio Broadcasting (White Paper) (26 May 1971)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: Is my hon. and learned Friend aware that Hughie Green has also said that the news service must be provided and presented by actors and not real people as this would give a more exciting presentation?

Elections (Validity of Nomination Papers): Radio Broadcasting (White Paper) (26 May 1971)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: Perhaps the hon. Gentleman is under an obligation to say what the association of which he is secretary now regards as the viable number of stations for this country. This number has varied as his association has grown older and wiser. Does it now consider that, in the different conditions of Europe, these stations could receive backing on the medium-wave?

Elections (Validity of Nomination Papers): Radio Broadcasting (White Paper) (26 May 1971)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: As I am sure the hon. Gentleman is aware, the White Paper has said that there will be medium-wave back-up for all these stations. Commercial profit lies with the transistor audience and so on. Does he seriously believe that once it has got its hands into that gravy bowl any commercial radio station would give it up voluntarily and go back to v.h.f. only?

Elections (Validity of Nomination Papers): Radio Broadcasting (White Paper) (26 May 1971)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: I must apologise to the hon. Member for Hendon, North (Mr. Gorst) if I do not follow him in detail, or perhaps quite so much in length, into the points he made. I take very much the lesson of what happens when one runs out of needle time in the House. The Times, on the appearance of the White Paper, described it as a bad case for a bad policy. I very much regret that that description can also...

Elections (Validity of Nomination Papers): Radio Broadcasting (White Paper) (26 May 1971)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: I apologise for the mishearing. I still feel that the hon. Gentleman is greatly exaggerating the possible revenue. When we look at the kind of proposals being assembled for this new medium of local radio, we see that what is involved is quite different from the B.B.C.'s local radio stations, which cost roughly £100,000 each to run annually. The local radio station in Derby, which has just...

Elections (Validity of Nomination Papers): Radio Broadcasting (White Paper) (26 May 1971)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: We shall learn what "Radio Brighouse" will do from the hon. Member for Brighouse and Spenborough. I want to follow the hon. Member for Hendon, North, in his extolling of the commercial radio station par excellence. I do not believe that any station can be run in a proper manner and give a proper balance on the basis of a disc jockey rushing around doing everything, perhaps with a trained...

Elections (Validity of Nomination Papers): Radio Broadcasting (White Paper) (26 May 1971)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: The hon. Gentleman may be tired of Mr. Green but what we are trying to see is that Mr. Green's concept of local radio is not extended to the country. I quote Mr. Green's proposals in which he poured scorn on the idea of I.T.N. He said: I.T.N. is a pale imitation of the B.B.C. Surely all of us agree that one of the things which have undoubtedly been a success in Independent Television is the...

Elections (Validity of Nomination Papers): Radio Broadcasting (White Paper) (26 May 1971)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: No, because I.T.N. is a separate organisation. But there is great reason for concern about the kind of influence which some people have tried to exert over the television companies from their position as Press magnates. The right hon. Gentleman will remember that we last clashed in this House on the issue of the controlling interest in London Weekend Television, which was being sought by Mr....

Elections (Validity of Nomination Papers): Radio Broadcasting (White Paper) (26 May 1971)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: Apart from hearing of the death of John the Baptist in Bengali in the births, marriages and deaths service, how much of a sustained diet of pop music was there on Radio 270?

Orders of the Day — Education (Milk) Bill (14 Jun 1971)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: The hon. Gentleman would like some up-to-date facts from Derbyshire. Perhaps he will be interested to know that I spent last week touring primary schools in the County Borough of Derby, and I was told in those schools that the number of children taking school meals had fallen by between 25 and 30 per school. Moreover, I was told that it was deplored in each and every one of those schools that...

Orders of the Day — Education (Milk) Bill (14 Jun 1971)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: I gave some significant facts.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: James Hanratty (17 Jun 1971)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will now announce the result of the investigation by his Department of the new facts and allegations in the case of James Hanratty; and whether he will now set up a public inquiry.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: James Hanratty (17 Jun 1971)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: I thank the Under-Secretary for that reply. Early Day Motion No. 537 or the two sympathetic Amendments thereto have been signed by 65 hon. Members. There will be widespread disappointment on both sides of the House if there is not an early announcement of a full inquiry into the Hanratty case.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Sierre Leone (21 Jun 1971)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: I appreciate what the Foreign Secretary has said, but could he use his good offices with the Government of Sierra Leone at least to secure the release pending trial of Brigadier John Bangura, the head of Sierra Leone's military forces, whom all of us who have had the honour of serving with those forces know to be an officer of the highest integrity?

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: James Hanratty (Inquiry) (24 Jun 1971)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: I welcome the close attention which the right hon. Gentleman has given to this matter throughout. Would he accept that an inquiry into whether there should be an inquiry cannot equal in length or depth, and certainly not in fairness, the public inquiry itself into the guilt or innocence of James Hanratty? May we expect the announcement of the right hon. Gentleman's decision before the Summer...

Business of the House (24 Jun 1971)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: Bearing in mind the important statement the House is about to hear and what the Prime Minister said last week about the need for informed debate on the Common Market to take place in the country, will the Leader of the House consider authorising the broadcasting on sound radio only of the whole debate to take note of the White Paper?

Oral Answers to Questions — Posts and Telecommunications: Commercial Broadcasting (30 Jun 1971)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: asked the Minister of Posts and Telecommunications when he will announce plans for legislation to implement the Government's proposals for commercial broadcasting.

Oral Answers to Questions — Posts and Telecommunications: Commercial Broadcasting (30 Jun 1971)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: While I welcome the fact that we are to be spared commercial radio for a little longer, is the Minister aware that each delay brings us nearer to 1976, when the whole structure of broadcasting in this country will have to be reviewed, as will the Copenhagen Agreement? Will he say now that in view of the delays it would be better to have an inquiry into the whole future structure and...

Business of the House (1 Jul 1971)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: In view of the immense and unique importance of the debate on the White Paper on Britain's entry to the Common Market, has the right hon. Gentleman put to the appropriate Committee the request which I made to him last week about broadcasting on sound radio the whole of the "Take Note" debate?
