Orders of the Day — Comprehensive Schools (2 Mar 1966)

Hon. Anthony Berry: With the aims which the hon. Member for Durham. North-West (Mr. Armstrong) expressed for our children in his concluding remarks I am in full agreement, but I did not follow him in the ways which he suggested for attaining those aims. Looking round the Chamber now and remembering that it is 14 months since we last debated this important subject, I cannot help noticing that there are several...

Orders of the Day — Comprehensive Schools (2 Mar 1966)

Hon. Anthony Berry: It proves that the teachers themselves think that the grammar schools are better. I am glad that the hon. Member for Woolwich, West interrupted me, even from a sitting position, because it gives me a chance to say a word to him.

Orders of the Day — Comprehensive Schools (2 Mar 1966)

Hon. Anthony Berry: It has been a long time, but it will be worth it. I have intervened in the debate to give what I can only describe as an up-to-date example of the way in which the comprehensive system is being imposed. I respect the views of hon. Members opposite, many of whom have far more experience of education than I, but there are many aspects of the problem and many parts of the country which are...

Hon. Anthony Berry: I shall not keep the Joint Parliamentary Secretary very much longer from answering the many important questions which have been put to him, but I should like to add one or two more. In introducing the Bill on Wednesday, the Minister said that if ever there were a non-controversial Bill she thought this was it. I should say that if ever there were a non-controversial Amendment surely this is...

Aberfan Disaster (24 Oct 1966)

Hon. Anthony Berry: As a member of a Merthyr family and as one who had the privilege of holding an ancient office in the county only a short time ago, may I add my sympathies to those already expressed.

Orders of the Day — London Government Bill (15 Nov 1966)

Hon. Anthony Berry: I find myself broadly in agreement with much of what the hon. Member for Willesden, East (Mr. Freeson) said in his concluding observations. How much simpler it would have been not to have the Bill before the House but to be having a debate on the lines he mentioned. It would have been profitable to all of us, and it is another reason for opposing the Bill. The hon. Gentleman said at the...

Orders of the Day — London Government Bill (15 Nov 1966)

Hon. Anthony Berry: I was speaking only from experience. I find that in debates of this kind there are very seldom many Ministers on the Front Bench opposite. I meant nothing stronger than that, though I am obliged to my hon. Friend for making the point. At the weekend after the Bill was first announced, I made a statement to the local Press suggesting that it was only fair to the electors that any really...
