Oral Answers to Questions — Posts and Telecommunications: Television Channels (8 Dec 1971)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: Will the Minister accept that he is dealing here with the disposal of a fourth mass audience television channel and is not simply approving the proposals which this public authority are putting forward for I.T.V. 2? Will he also bear in mind that many people who work in broadcasting regard the timing of these proposals as a preemptive strike to set up a second I.T.V. service before the next...

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Derby (9 Dec 1971)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: asked the Secretary of State for Employment what plans he has for dealing with the unemployment situation in Derby.

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Derby (9 Dec 1971)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: Is the Minister aware that in the past 18 months unemployment in Derby has risen by 75 per cent. that it is most deep-seated among skilled designers, technicians and craftsmen and that there is unlikely to be any improvement in the general situation of deep-seated unemployment in constituencies represented by many of my hon. Friends unless the employment multiplier is got going by special...

Oral Answers to Questions — Minister of Posts and Telecommunications (Speech) (9 Dec 1971)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: asked the Prime Minister whether the public speech of the Minister of Posts and Telecommunications at Billingham on 20th November on Northern Ireland represents the policy of Her Majesty's Government.

Oral Answers to Questions — Minister of Posts and Telecommunications (Speech) (9 Dec 1971)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: Will the right hon. Gentleman take this opportunity to put on record, as did one of his junior Ministers earlier in the week, his view that full coverage of the views and opinions of both communities in Northern Ireland and of the security forces in their difficult and dangerous task by the media is indispensable if we are to maintain there the institutions of a free society?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Rhodesia (13 Dec 1971)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what communications he has received from leaders of African Governments, and Africans inside Rhodesia, relating to his announcement on 25th November, 1971, of a proposed settlement with the illegal régime in Rhodesia.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Rhodesia (13 Dec 1971)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: In view of the reported widespread mistrust of the Pearce Commission, as at present constituted, by Africans inside Rhodesia and responsible African leaders throughout the continent, may I ask the right hon. Gentleman when he will be in a position to announce additional names? Can he say whether one of them will be African?

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Motorways (Fog) (15 Dec 1971)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what plans he has for increasing the efficiency of the fog warning light system on the M1.

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Motorways (Fog) (15 Dec 1971)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: Is the hon. Gentleman aware that hon. Members on both sides of the House are among the most frequent users of the motorway and that anyone who has been on the fringe of one of these hellish accidents in fog must be concerned about the inadequate fog warning light system? Can the hon. Gentleman say what is the average distance between the lights on the M1 compared with what it was, say, a year...

Orders of the Day — Television (Fourth Channel) (15 Dec 1971)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: It is a great pleasure to me tonight to be able to raise in the debate on the Consolidated Fund Bill the question of the allocation of the fourth and final U.H.F. frequency for television broadcasting in this country. It is a matter of great concern and one which, I submit to the House and to hon. Members who are waiting to speak later on other subjects in this debate, is of very pressing and...

Orders of the Day — Television (Fourth Channel) (15 Dec 1971)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: The short answer to that question is "Yes, on precedent". There have been three public inquiries so far into broadcasting, the Ullswater Inquiry, the Beveridge Inquiry and the Pilkington Inquiry. On average there was roughly 12 years in between each. I do not think that the structure of British broadcasting has been altered for the worse; quite the contrary; I think it has been altered for...

Orders of the Day — Television (Fourth Channel) (15 Dec 1971)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: I am grateful to my hon. Friend for making that point, which I accept. The Minister clearly does not, and he does not want another inquiry. The least he can do is to tell the I.T.A. where it can get off on these proposals which have attempted to pre-empt public debate. He can tell the House today that he will consider those proposals and all the other proposals which are being submitted to...

Orders of the Day — Television (Fourth Channel) (15 Dec 1971)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: The hon. Gentleman is totally contradicting himself. What he is now describing in America is the direct cause of having like against like on all three channels—the tyranny of no choice, yet three competing alternatives.

Orders of the Day — Television (Fourth Channel) (15 Dec 1971)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: Would my hon. and learned Friend agree that the best we could say for competition between I.T.V.2 and B.B.C.2, if we get I.T.V.2, is that it would be like against like, and that, in discounting the case for competition between two I.T.V. channels, the Authority says that all the evidence suggests that competitive planning did not enlarge the range of choice? Indeed, it did not. It narrowed...

Orders of the Day — Television (Fourth Channel) (15 Dec 1971)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: There is a strong probability that the I.T.A. will itself be concentrating educational programmes in the mornings only on the channel which it has in order to give additional time to the companies which want to put programmes on in the afternoon. How does the right hon. Gentleman view that prospect? Will he authorise it if it is proposed to him?

Orders of the Day — Television (Fourth Channel) (15 Dec 1971)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: On this central point, surely the Minister realises that if there is to be a review before 1976, the inquiry should report two years before that, which means that it should be set up two years before that. If that means setting up an inquiry in 1972, surely the consideration of the allocation of the fourth channel is one thing for the inquiry. The Minister cannot decide it.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Student Unions (16 Dec 1971)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: Does not the right hon. Lady now realise that her good will in the forthcoming discussions would be taken more seriously if today we had one word of encouragement about the useful work that has been done by the N.U.S. and the vast majority of student unions, particularly as not one such word appears in the consultative document?

Orders of the Day — Motorway Accidents (16 Dec 1971)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: I am grateful to the hon. Member for Bedfordshire, South (Mr. Madel) for allowing me a couple of minutes in which to make three points to the Minister. The hon. Gentleman knows that it is not simply the fact that he and I are lifelong friends that has brought me here to support him. My first point is that this is a matter of general concern in all the areas through which the M1 and other...

Oral Answers to Questions — Posts and Telecommunications: Television and Radio Broadcasting (19 Jan 1972)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: asked the Minister of Posts and Telecommunications what representations he has now received regarding the allocation of the fourth ultra high frequency television channel.

Television and Radio Broadcasting (19 Jan 1972)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: Does the right hon. Gentleman accept that, while the first part of his statement will be generally welcomed, there is a ferment in the media and broadcasting generally which should be translated into a public inquiry as soon as possible? On the second part of his statement, does he accept that, while the general derestriction of hours will be welcomed, particularly by the smaller commercial...
