Young Persons (12 Mar 1982)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: The Under-Secretary of State has entirely omitted the fact that the number of applicants has greatly increased, is still increasing and will do so next year. Therefore, the number of people who can have higher education will have fallen as a proportion of the whole under the Conservative Government.

Mr Phillip Whitehead: Secretary of State for Transport when he expects to make an announcement of the Government's policy towards the Channel tunnel.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Channel Tunnel (10 Mar 1982)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: Is the Secretary of State aware of the old saying: Hope deferred maketh the heart sick"? Given that many of us are heart-sick after yesterday's Budget and that many of us are supporters of capital projects for the regeneration of British industry, is there not a need for a speedy decision on this major project, which could make a substantial contribution to such regeneration?

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Satellite Broadcasts (18 Feb 1982)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: Will the Secretary of State give an undertaking that the same degree of regulation will obtain, in the national interest, in any form of satellite broadcasting linked through ground stations to cable broadcasting as obtains for the existing service?

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: University Staff (Redundancy Compensation) (16 Feb 1982)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: Is the Secretary of State proud of the fact that this week in The Times Higher Education Supplement he and his colleagues have been described as "The new yahoos, " presiding over a system in which £200 million is being paid out to sack university teachers, whom the universities do not wish to get rid of, for whom there is a demand and whose product is highly esteemed?

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Medical Research Council (16 Feb 1982)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science to what extent, in fixing the budget of the Medical Research Council, he takes into account the provision of postgraduate medical education by universities (a) in total and (b) in London.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Medical Research Council (16 Feb 1982)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: When medical research within the universities is being calculated by the Department, what figure of lost posts in England and Wales, particularly in medical schools, is taken into account? In view of the threatened sacking of the medical school unit at the Westminster medical school, whose work on Vitamin B12 deficiencies is, literally, life-saving, can the hon. Gentleman assure us that such...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Tertiary Education (16 Feb 1982)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: If the Minister is so satisfied about the present state of affairs, may I ask whether he is also satisfied with the envisaged cut in the staff-student ratio in the colleges? How can there be an expansion of the services that he and we say we wish if the staff-student ratio is to be further cut?

Orders of the Day — Overseas Development (11 Feb 1982)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: roe,—

Orders of the Day — Food and Drugs (Amendment) Bill (29 Jan 1982)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: I seem always to be following the hon. Member for Devon, West (Mr. Mills). The last time was in the debates on the Zoo Licensing (No. 2) Bill. One of the issues in those debates was that some cowboy elements were trading in zoo animals as meat. Like the hon. Member, I must declare an interest, although not a financial one, as a member of the council of the Consumers Association. I join him in...

Orders of the Day — Food and Drugs (Amendment) Bill (29 Jan 1982)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: I accept that to some extent, but we are dealing here with offences for which the penalties are inadequate. Odious publicity is not in itself always a sufficient deterrent. A parallel example is our penalties for the demolition of listed buildings. When a speculator demolishes a listed building and is brought to court for it, he attracts great adverse publicity. However, because of the low...

Orders of the Day — Food and Drugs (Amendment) Bill (29 Jan 1982)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: I promise not to give way again. We all tremble at extending our influence north of the border. I have a great regard for Scotland's law, its education system and so on. I leave it to my right hon. and learned Friend the Member for Warley, West (Mr. Archer) to answer that question. The Bill deals with England and Wales. I hope that the Scots and the Scottish butchers, for whom I have a high...

Orders of the Day — Food and Drugs (Amendment) Bill (29 Jan 1982)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: I do indeed agree. My right hon. and learned Friend has helped me to draw my remarks to a conclusion. We have framed the provisions to allow the maximum flexibility to this corrective legislation. I hope that the Minister will assure us not only that the Government support the Bill—which has wide support on both sides of the House—but that they will do so in a way that will enable us to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Sixth Form and Tertiary Colleges (19 Jan 1982)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: Surely the implication of the Manchester decision is that the Secretary of State overruled his civil servants and majority opinion in the city of Manchester. Will the right hon. Gentleman put the interests of the few before those of the many in Birmingham regarding sixth form college proposals there or, at Sheffield, where a tertiary solution is being chosen? Will he persist in that attitude,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Degree and High Level Courses (19 Jan 1982)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: As the colleges have suffered more in the advanced further education allocations this year than the polytechnics, and as the Government want fewer students at the polytechnics than at the universities, where do they suggest that the students who are thus displaced will go if they cannot go to the colleges?

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Overseas Students (19 Jan 1982)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: A 21 per cent. drop in enrolments this year is described by the Minister as "encouragingly small". At which figure does he become discouraged? What would he say is suffering most as a result of this fall in numbers—the institutions to which the students would have gone and the home students still there, or our relations with the countries from which the overseas students would have come?

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: British Railways Board (23 Dec 1981)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: When the Secretary of State discusses rail investment with the chairman of British Rail, will he consider the parlous state of many of British Rail's engineering workshops in Derby and elsewhere? Given the shrinkage of the wagon fleet and the fact that we have a successful record in exporting what is essentially an old technology, if the right hon. Gentleman is concerned to sing the praises...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Advanced Passenger Train (23 Dec 1981)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: Is not the APT adapted technology as well as innovative, which is one of its great strengths? Although £37 million has been spent so far, it still represents value for money. Will the Minister confirm that during the two months before the disasters that overtook the APT in the severe weather last week it ran trouble-free on that route?

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Channel Link (23 Dec 1981)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: asked the Secretary of State for Transport when he expects to publish his reply to the report of the Transport Committee on the Channel link

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Channel Link (23 Dec 1981)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: I thank the Secretary of State for that rather fatuous reply. The House will wish to have a positive response from the Department to the Select Committee. Is the Secretary of State aware that there have been many proposals for a rail tunnel? It appears to be one of the few subjects upon which the Prime Minister can converse with the French President. When can we get an answer about the sort...
