Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Derby (29 Jul 1971)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: asked the Secretary of State for Employment what is the latest figure for young people leaving school and registering as unemployed in the borough of Derby.

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Derby (29 Jul 1971)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: Is the Minister aware that the number of juveniles unemployed in the Derby area has increased significantly over the last year, and what possible message of hope has he for the young people in my constituency who are coming on to the labour market at a time when unemployment has increased by 65 per cent. in the last year and when the only sign of the Government's dynamic economic policy has...

Agriculture (Welfare of Livestock) (30 Jul 1971)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: I entirely agree with everything said by the hon. Lady the Member for Preston, North (Miss Holt). Indeed, she has saved both the House and me some time by her detailed criticism of the Codes. Where we are so critical of the Codes is in their application. This is why so many right hon. and hon. Members have referred already to the fact that, since the Codes are not mandatory, their...

Agriculture (Welfare of Livestock) (30 Jul 1971)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: I entirely agree. This is why I find the entire Report somewhat bland in its assumptions. In 1969, in our debate when the Codes were first introduced, the hon. Member for Cambridge (Mr. Lane) listed six amendments which he would wish to see made in them: First, any animal should at least have room to turn round freely. Second, a dry bedded area should be provided for all stock. Third,...

Agriculture (Welfare of Livestock) (30 Jul 1971)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: While we accept and welcome the definition of unnecessary suffering in the 1968 Act, can the right hon. Gentleman tell us how many prosecutions for unnecessary suffering have used this Section of the Act and of the Codes?

Secondary Education, Derby (2 Aug 1971)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: The hour is very late and on a day when Derby in particular has cause to rejoice because a vote this evening in the United States Senate has given great consulation to many of my constituents and has preserved their jobs, it may seem churlish of me to raise another problem in Derby, this time one that affects the problems of my constituents' children. I begin by briefly reminding the...

Secondary Education, Derby (2 Aug 1971)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: Would not the hon. Gentleman agree that his own intervention, by supplying the local newspaper with alleged facts that the scheme would be rejected, built up a great deal of anticipation in the county borough that the scheme would be scrapped and the parents were therefore under a misapprehension as to the real nature of the decision?

Secondary Education, Derby (2 Aug 1971)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: Mrs. Whitehead rose—

Rolls-Royce (RB211) (4 Aug 1971)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that while my constituents in Derby warmly welcome the vote in Congress, they are only too well aware that the whole decision eventually hung upon the vote of a Kentucky senator? Will he now tell the House, since production on the RB211 is to go ahead, firstly, that there will be no further redundancies in the Derby engine division and, secondly, that some...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Primary Schools (Derbyshire) (5 Aug 1971)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: What proportion of this delayed largesse will go to the County Borough of Derby, which also is in Derbyshire, although it is a separate education authority?

Oral Answers to Questions — Canada, Australia and New Zealand (5 Aug 1971)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: If such consultations were to take place, would the Prime Minister draw the attention of the Prime Ministers of Australia and New Zealand to the very great success of the Canadian Government in the diversification of exports which meant that imports from Canada to this country, which were a serious problem in the 1962 negotiations, were a negligible problem in 1971?

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Welfare of Livestock (Prosecutions) (19 Oct 1971)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food how many prosecutions have been instituted under the Agriculture (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act, 1968, regarding unnecessary suffering caused to animals; and in how many such cases a failure to observe the Codes of Recommendation for the Welfare of Liverstock was quoted in evidence.

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Welfare of Livestock (Prosecutions) (19 Oct 1971)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: Does the Minister agree that, in view of the many serious malpractices which the revised Codes of Recommendations are designed to prevent, it is a great pity that only one prosecution has been brought in which the Codes have been quoted in evidence? Would there not be more successful prosecutions if the Codes were mandatory?

Oral Answers to Questions — Posts and Telecommunications: Local Radio (20 Oct 1971)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: asked the Minister of Posts and Telecommunications whether he can now state that he will introduce legislation to implement the Government's proposals for commercial radio in the next Session of Parliament.

Oral Answers to Questions — Posts and Telecommunications: Independent Television (Second Channel) (20 Oct 1971)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: Has the Minister noted the statement of the Director-General of the I.T.A. that there should not be a public debate about ITV 2—or TV 4, as some of us might wish to call it? Does not the right hon. Gentleman agree that it would be a scandal if there were not a public debate, and a debate in the House, about the disposal of this scarce public asset?

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: RB-211 (25 Oct 1971)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he will make a statement about the financing of the RB-211 engine, under manufacture by Rolls-Royce (1971) Limited.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: RB-211 (25 Oct 1971)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: May I ask whether the funds now being made available for the RB-211 project include funds for the continuance of work on the up-rated engine? My information is that work on the up-rated engine at the Derby Engine Division is now being postponed for some six months. Secondly, can the right hon. Gentleman say whether there will be any redundancies at the office closing at the Derby Engine...

Orders of the Day — European Communities (26 Oct 1971)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: He also said that we should go in.

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Nottingham-Birmingham Motorway (27 Oct 1971)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: When these plans are published after study, would the Minister consider how they integrate with the other proposed motorways to the east and south of Derby and together combine to provide an adequate by-pass for traffic through Derby which would render unnecessary the completely ridiculous bypass now being constructed in Derby?

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Firm Price Tendering (27 Oct 1971)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what representations he has now had upon the subject of firm price tendering; and if he will make a statement.
