National Heritage Bill [Lords]: The Boards (5 May 1983)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: I am grateful to the Minister for what he has done to meet the view of hon. Members on both sides of the Committee that management and industrial relations—I accept his formula entirely—should go hand in hand here if, as we all wish, we are to have a harmonious operation of the national museums. This form of words meets the aspirations of the Opposition in seeing that this area of...

National Heritage Bill [Lords]: The Board's General Function (5 May 1983)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: I beg to move amendment No. 22, in page 11, line 13, at end insert— '(8) The Board may allow premises occupied or managed by them to be used by other persons (for payment or otherwise) for purposes not connected with the functions mentioned in subsection (2) if the Board are satisfied that to do so would not conflict unduly with those functions'. This is a slightly complex matter on which I...

National Heritage Bill [Lords]: The Board's General Function (5 May 1983)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: With the leave of the House, Mr. Deputy Speaker, I shall reply to the Minister's intervention. In essence, this is a probing amendment. Our attempts to advance the case for the armouries have been bedevilled by the status that they hold. The two Ministers on the Government Front Bench represent different Departments but they are working happily in tandem on the Bill, as are the Opposition...

National Heritage Bill [Lords]: Initial Vesting in Board (5 May 1983)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: We are not opposed to the amendment, but in view of the apparent lack of communication with the armouries, about which the Secretary of State was complaining, can he tell us whether there has been full consultation with the authorities at the armouries about the clause?

National Heritage Bill [Lords]: Acquisition and Disposal of Objects (5 May 1983)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: In that case, the amendment should not be considered.

National Heritage Bill [Lords]: Acquisition and Disposal of Objects (5 May 1983)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. We would not normally make heavy weather of such a matter, but an important amendment in the name of the hon. Member for Beeston (Mr. Lester), who is not present at the moment, was ruled out of order earlier—even though it had the support of many hon. Members —because it contained a printing error. Less than half an hour later, the Minister is...

National Heritage Bill [Lords]: Acquisition and Disposal of Objects (5 May 1983)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: On behalf of the Opposition, I welcome this group of amendments, subject to correction of any misprints. It might well put undue strain on the arteries of my hon. Friend the Member for Warley, East (Mr. Faulds), absent though he may be on other duties, were I in any way to dispute what the Minister has done. I am sure that the amendments will be wholly welcomed in Warley, East and all points...

National Heritage Bill [Lords]: The Board's General Functions (5 May 1983)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: I beg to move amendment No. 1, in page 2, line 8, at end insert— '(e) satisfy the national interest in the Victoria and Albert Museum's activities and in its provincial responsibilities'.

National Heritage Bill [Lords]: The Board's General Functions (5 May 1983)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: I am grateful to you, Mr. Deputy Speaker, for your second thoughts in allowing this small but important amendment to be discussed on Report. I am also grateful to the Minister for circulating to me and to other members of the Committee the reply to the remaining outstanding recommendations of the Rayner report on the two national museums. We received it just before the Easter recess. I should...

National Heritage Bill [Lords]: The Board's General Functions (5 May 1983)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: Now that the Minister has given those assurances, which I welcome, I beg leave to withdraw the amendment.

National Heritage Bill [Lords]: The Board's General Functions (5 May 1983)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: The amendments deal with an issue related to the provision of services to the community by the national museums. The Minister, in his thoughtful reply when this matter was first raised in Committee, said he thought that our attempt then to exclude the giving of professional advice was too widely drafted and restrictive because it would mean, for example, that a museum could not charge for...

National Heritage Bill [Lords]: Power of Board of Trustees of Victoria and Albert Museum to Form Companies (5 May 1983)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: The Opposition welcome the introduction of the new clause. We feel that it goes some way towards clearing up the real doubts expressed on both sides in Committee and by all parties there represented about the trading status of the museums. We accept that it is extremely important that the museums here designated should have the opportunity to commercialise some of their activities in a proper...

National Heritage Bill [Lords]: Power of Board of Trustees of Victoria and Albert Museum to Form Companies (5 May 1983)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: With the leave of the House, I wish to press the Minister on a further point. We are anxious that the profits earned by the trading companies shall be allowed to accrue to the benefit of the museums as a whole. The Minister has confirmed that. Can he also confirm that any sums earned will be without prejudice to the amounts voted out of public funds in ensuing years?

Education (Fees and Awards) Bill (27 Apr 1983)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: In that case the hon. Gentleman can help me further now. Will the draft regulations be placed before the Committee?

Education (Fees and Awards) Bill (27 Apr 1983)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: By leave of the House, Mr. Deputy Speaker. I would point out to the hon. Member for Portsmouth, North (Mr. Griffiths) that nobody has said that it is not necessary to have a Bill—the criticisms are about this Bill. The criticisms have been fairly and forcefully expressed from the Opposition Benches, and to a degree that I hope will persuade the Secretary of State and the Minister that in...

Education (Fees and Awards) Bill (27 Apr 1983)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: That thinking would commend itself to the Tory party. I do not believe that that is a sound educational principle and I am sure that it would not be supported outside. We are told that people in Ealing and elsewhere are standing around talking of nothing else but the dreadful discrimination they may suffer if we do something for overseas students. The hon. Member for Ealing, North should be...

Education (Fees and Awards) Bill (27 Apr 1983)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: I will not pursue that too far. If the constituents of the hon. Member for Ealing, North complain to him that there are not enough discretionary awards and that discretionary awards might go, as a result of the Lords ruling and if the Bill were other than it is, to overseas students, he could say to them, "Hang on for a minute fellows — who got rid of discretionary awards? Why are there no...

Education (Fees and Awards) Bill (27 Apr 1983)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Education (Fees and Awards) Bill (27 Apr 1983)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: The hon. Gentleman asks a rhetorical question. I can put him out of his agony now. If he reads the Official Report he will see that I accepted, given the situation in which the Government now find themselves and the comparative urgency following the Scarman judgment, that the Bill is necessary. But I would not, as the Irishman said when asked for directions, ever have got to this place in the...

Education (Fees and Awards) Bill (27 Apr 1983)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: Those distortions are far worse and more sinister for home students than the alleged distortions of subsidy stated by the hon. Member for Gravesend (Mr. Brinton).
