Orders of the Day — Right of Reply in the Media Bill (18 Feb 1983)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: My hon. Friend misheard me. I was saying that some people have advanced, as an alternative remedy, the extension of legal aid to defamation cases. My point is that that would be insufficient, especially for the people that he, I and others who support the Bill wish to see helped. I shall now deal with the other route for a remedy that has been suggested by the thoughtful editorials in the...

Orders of the Day — Right of Reply in the Media Bill (18 Feb 1983)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: Is not the case made more serious by the fact that the Press Council only discovered the information that it did about the behaviour of the Daily Mail and a number of other newspapers because Mr. Sutcliffe's defence counsel had happened to keep the chits and promissory notes pushed through Mrs. Sutcliffe's door? The newspapers had withheld information about the transactions in many cases.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Serpell Report (Consultants) (16 Feb 1983)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: As over half the costs of the Serpell inquiry have gone in lucrative fees to the consultants Travers Morgan, would not the right hon. Gentleman consider it unwise to pay any further sums that may be outstanding to the firm, as many Opposition Members and others in the country believe that—inadvertently or not—he breached the guidelines in the code of practice with regard to seeking a...

Education (Assisted Places) (9 Feb 1983)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: Nothing. Does the Minister accept that Charlotte MacWhirter—I have no animus against her—changed her A-level subjects once she got to Repton school? That raises a fear among local authorities that, once the veto has been done away with, many people will go to these schools when they could take equivalent courses in their state schools. Does the Minister accept that in Derbyshire, many...

Mr Phillip Whitehead: I want to stress what has happened in Derby and Derbyshire in the course of the recession and tell the Secretary of State for Employment and his hon. Friend the Minister of State that the "Alice in Wonderworld" approach is not goof enough in terms of the human misery and suffering that we are now seeing. Unemployment in Derby now stands at 11 per cent.; it is 11·8 per cent. in Derbyshire,...

Overseas Students (Fees) (8 Feb 1983)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: The right hon. Gentleman said that the money would be used in part to help deserving students from Commonwealth countries generally and developing countries especially. How much money will be available for that purpose over and above the bilateral arrangements with the three states named in the statement?

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Royal Opera House and Royal Shakespeare Company (7 Feb 1983)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: In view of the Rayner connections of this group, will the right hon. Gentleman urge it not to follow the unhappy precedent of the recent Rayner report on the Victoria and Albert museum, and to visit the various institutions that it is surveying while they are open?
