Orders of the Day — Education (Assisted Places) (16 Dec 1981)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: If the hon. Gentleman wishes to see the social mix about which he is talking, surely he would ban entrants from private schools at preparatory school age from coming into the school at 11 years of age.

Poland (14 Dec 1981)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: Will the Minister seek an early meeting with the new Polish ambassador and impress upon him that, although we wish to continue to help the Poles to overcome their economic crisis, it will be on the basis that there is widespread support in this country for the aims of the free trade union, Solidarity, and a widespread view that the economic crisis has been brought about not by Polish trade...

National Parks and Countryside Commission (11 Dec 1981)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: It is always a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Devon, West (Mr. Mills). I endorse much of what he said. He struck notes which I think have been common throughout the debate. The first was a note of congratulation to the hon. Member for Skipton (Mr. Watson) on introducing this subject and the way in which he did it. I apologise to the hon. Member for Skipton, in his absence, for missing...

National Parks and Countryside Commission (11 Dec 1981)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: I always mistake excitement and dissent in the hon. Member for High Peak. Today is no exception. There are other motions on the Order Paper, and many of us must leave, in this inclement weather, for our constituencies, so I make only two short points. The first is the question of housing and amenity. I follow here what has been said by the hon. Member for Devon, West. The position of the...

National Parks and Countryside Commission (11 Dec 1981)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: In the Peak District national park, which the hon. Member for Derbyshire, West (Mr. Parris) represents and where I live, it is not always the local people who resist the depredations of those who wish to carry out mineral extraction. Opposition often comes from outsiders who are concerned with the natural beauty of the area.

Severn-Trent Water Authority (7 Dec 1981)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: Does the Minister agree that many of our constituents regard the Severn-Trent water authority as an overriding subject? Given the fact that it levies a rate that does not allow representation in the way that happens in other levying bodies, will the right hon. Gentleman give an undertaking that one of the options in his consultative paper will be directly elected members of the water authority?

Orders of the Day — Derbyshire Royal Infirmary> (Neuroservice Centre) (2 Dec 1981)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: It falls to me to conclude the case for the prosecution in this sad business.

Orders of the Day — Derbyshire Royal Infirmary> (Neuroservice Centre) (2 Dec 1981)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: I apologise to my hon. Friend. I shall make three points in the three minutes at my disposal, after congratulating my hon. Friend the Member for Derby, South (Mr. Johnson) and the hon. Member for Belper (Mrs. Faith) on their contributions. On this matter we are all at one in Derbyshire, in the area health authority and in the medical profession. First, does the Minister agree that there...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Student Grants (1 Dec 1981)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: The Secretary of State said that he was still learning the job. May we take it that Ministers in the Department have learnt the lesson of their predecessor, the right hon. and learned Member for Runcorn (Mr. Carlisle), and abandoned the pernicious notion of introducing a system of student loans?

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Manchester (Secondary Education) (1 Dec 1981)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: What definition of proven need puts the case for three schools over the case for 23 schools, which costs an additional £1 million in delay and which is adopted—I understand—against the advice of the Department and Her Majesty's Inspectorate?

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Universities and Polytechnics (1 Dec 1981)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: As we now know that the fall in the number of university student places will be about 20,000 in three years, is not it incumbent on the Government to state the equivalent fall in the number of polytechnic places?

Orders of the Day — Supply: Higher Education (18 Nov 1981)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: The Under-Secretary of State cannot be allowed to get away with making slurs about adding noughts. The cost of redundancies might be £200 million compared with the £20 million which the Government allocated. Is not that a case of the Government taking a nought away?

Orders of the Day — Supply: Higher Education (18 Nov 1981)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: I am glad to follow the hon. Member for Tiverton (Mr. Maxwell-Hyslop) because he has, in the best spirit of hon. Members who speak after nine o'clock, taken five minutes of my speech time to make a point that I would otherwise have made in five minutes or even longer. I hope that it will be answered by the Under-Secretary of State because it was a point well worth making. I begin by...

Orders of the Day — Supply: Higher Education (18 Nov 1981)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: I stand corrected, Mr. Speaker. Of course, I would wish to address you in the proper way at all times. In the exercise which the Government have undertaken, they are cutting first the one and then the other. We have first seen the attack on public sector higher education. Then we have seen the attack on the universities. Now in prospect there is a further attack on the public sector of...

Orders of the Day — Supply: Higher Education (18 Nov 1981)

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

Orders of the Day — Supply: Higher Education (18 Nov 1981)

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

Orders of the Day — Supply: Higher Education (18 Nov 1981)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: rose——

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Aston, Bradford and Salford Universities (Grant Reductions) (27 Oct 1981)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: I thank the new Minister for bringing a fresh mind to a stricken field. Will he consider the position of those universities that are sending out redundancy notices that will add to the overall bill of £250 million in redundancy payments? Will the hon. Gentleman note that students at Aston university are suing the university for breach of contract? What will happen to those legitimate claims...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Overseas Students (27 Oct 1981)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: This year Sheffield university has lost fee income of about £1 million. Is the Secretary of State suggesting that the university should trawl the world for rich students or forgo that fee income and probably the courses associated with it? If he is making the former suggestion, may I ask how he squares that with the criticism properly made of it at the Mexico summit?

Orders of the Day — Wildlife and Countryside Bill [Lords]: Recognised Beef Breeds for the Purpose of Section 54 (30 Jul 1981)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: It would be valuable for the Minister to reflect, even at this late hour, not only on the correspondence that many of us have had on the subject but on the feeling of those of us who live in the country and who know the difference between the conventional wisdom in the countryside about the danger potentially posed by bulls grazing near footpaths and what has finally appeared in the Bill....
