Orders of the Day — Education (Mandatory Awards) (23 Nov 1982)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: If the Government are doing so much better, how is it that in answer to me on 8 March this year the hon. Gentleman suggested that the age participation rate would fall to 91·7 per cent. in the academic year after that and 11·2 per cent. for 1984–85. Where is the triumph in that?

Orders of the Day — Education (Mandatory Awards) (23 Nov 1982)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: From rich students.

Orders of the Day — Education (Mandatory Awards) (23 Nov 1982)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: As the hon. Gentleman suggests that the Opposition want to splash money on people who do not get any grant for non-advanced further education, will he tell the House whether he is satisfied about the lack of support that people in those deserving categories get? I think that he is not.

Orders of the Day — Education (Mandatory Awards) (23 Nov 1982)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: I beg to move, That the Education (Mandatory Awards) Regulations 1982 (S.I., 1982, No. 954), dated 12th July 1982, a copy of which was laid before this House on 16th July, in the last Session of Paliament, be revoked. Labour Members have fulfilled their pledge to bring he regulation to the House after the Government's ignominious defeat in Committee. That is the first time the Government...

Orders of the Day — Education (Mandatory Awards) (23 Nov 1982)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: At least I was there. The hon. Gentleman was not. We are endeavouring to discover why so many Conservative Members chose to be away. In my view, silence is eloquent and absence sometimes makes its presence felt. On that occasion, the Under-Secretary of State was left with his faithful Sancho Panza, the hon. Member for Rugby (Mr. Pawsey), and little other succour. I am heartened by the...

Orders of the Day — Education (Mandatory Awards) (23 Nov 1982)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: No. The hon. and learned Gentleman will be disappointed in that as in much else from me. I do not wish to be drawn into discussing student loans because it is an issue which, to some degree, is outside the general tenor of the regulations. However, it is my view that student loans will act as a disincentive to the sort of students whom we wish to encourage into the State system of education....

Orders of the Day — Education (Mandatory Awards) (23 Nov 1982)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: I appreciate my hon. Friend's argument. The Secretary of State, who is with us in the flesh, has erred in telling students—it is fine advice from him—that they should find part-time jobs. One of the occupants of the Social Democratic Party's Bench—he is the only SDP member in his place tonight—has said that there are 3·5 million reasons why students cannot get part-time jobs. I refer...

Oral Answers to Questions: Victoria and Albert and Science Museums (22 Nov 1982)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: May I press the Minister a little further, as this is the last Arts Question Time before Christmas? Does the clause in the National Heritage Bill that allows museums to make charges without qualifications if they see fit mean that he has gone down the charges path? Would he not rather endorse the educational use of museums that is written into the Education Act 1964, which has recently been...

Oral Answers to Questions: Victoria and Albert and Science Museums (22 Nov 1982)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: Does the Minister agree that the trustees should include representatives of the work force within the museums?

Oral Answers to Questions: Arts Council (22 Nov 1982)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: Is the Minister aware that he has had in his possession for some months a letter from the chairman of the Arts Council which stressed that, unless a minimum of £98·5 million was paid in grant this year, substantial cuts would have to be imposed on national companies and regional activities which, to some extent, the Arts Council has supported? Will the right hon. Gentleman confirm that a...

Oral Answers to Questions: Arts Council (Grant) (22 Nov 1982)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science when he expects to announce the grant allocation for the Arts Council for the coming year.

Oral Answers to Questions: Arts Council (Grant) (22 Nov 1982)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: I wish to return to two matters on which I have not received a satisfactory reply. [Interruption.] They relate to the same subject. Has the right hon. Gentleman replied to the chairman of the Arts Council? If so, what were the terms of that reply and will be publish the correspondence? The original letter was a public letter. What comments has the Minister to make on statements by two of four...

Oral Answers to Questions: The Arts (North-West Region) (22 Nov 1982)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: I know that the Minister cannot answer for the Arts Council, but does he agree that it would be a complete scandal if the £1½ million invested in the Palace theatre were to be wasted and if the people were to be deprived of opera in the Manchester region purely because of a decision taken one year in advance, before the Royal Opera House could know what financial support it could get in the...

Petitions: Disqualification of Clergy (12 Nov 1982)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: With your permission, Mr. Speaker, I beg to present a humble petition on behalf of my constituent the Venerable Robert Dell, Archdeacon of Derby. Archdeacon Dell petitions this honourable House to repeal the House of Commons (Clergy Disqualification) Act 1801 which was passed to effect the retrospective disqualification of a Member of this honourable House, the Rev. Horne Tooke, the great...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Teacher Training (9 Nov 1982)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science when he expects to announce the revised list of closures for institutions providing initial teacher training.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Teacher Training (9 Nov 1982)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: Does the Secretary of State accept that the maladroit exercise that he attempted to carry out during the summer vacation has now led to 10 institutions being closed without any reason whatever being given? The reasons for this whole exercise have not been explained to the House. Will he allow time for a debate and say why he has still gone far above the ACSET limit in the closures that he is...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Secondary Training Places (9 Nov 1982)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: Does the Minister agree that it is scandalous that these proposals were announced the day before Education Question Time and with no debate in the House? What guarantee do we have that the proposals will be debated and some amendment be possible?

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Salford University (9 Nov 1982)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: Will the Minister discuss with the University Grants Committee why it asked Salford to raise its intake of part-time students by 75 per cent. and at the same time asked it to raise the fees for those same students by 150 per cent? What is the logic of that? How can Salford do even the things that the UGC now asks?

Statutory Instruments (Debate) (26 Oct 1982)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: Further to that point of order, Mr. Speaker. I submit that this is a matter concerning the rights of the House. When a Committee has found a statutory instrument profoundly unsatisfactory and voted it down, and taking into account the fact that the Leader of the House had previously given undertakings that student grants should be debated on the Floor, it is incumbent upon the House, if its...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (26 Oct 1982)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. I have given only brief notice of a point of order about the rights of the House, on which I seek your guidance—
