Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Health: Children (Deafness) (4 Jul 1966)

Mr Derek Page: Is my right hon. Friend aware that the period of training of specialised teachers of deaf children is much longer than that received by general practitioners?

Friend the Secretary of State for Education and Science on setting up a...

Orders of the Day — Industrial Development Bill (19 Jul 1966)

Mr Derek Page: I beg to move Amendment No. 45, in page 12, line 14, after "migration" to insert: earnings relative to other areas ".

Mr Derek Page: Would my hon. Friend agree that often it is very much easier for a family to move from London to an overspill area or new town than it is to move from just a few miles away, even though members of the family are working in the area?

Orders of the Day — New Towns Bill (28 Oct 1966)

Mr Derek Page: I want to add my welcome to the Bill, which is thoroughly admirable as far as it goes.

I express a particular word of appreciation for the long...

Orders of the Day — New Towns Bill (28 Oct 1966)

Mr Derek Page: The hon. Gentleman is simply repeating the argument which I was putting. During that period, we were consolidating the new towns which had been founded and we then started on the second generation of new towns. I was coming to the £800 million. This is £250 million more than the present limit, and I refer to the Sections of the 1965 Act whereby this money is to be made available. It is...

Orders of the Day — New Towns Bill (28 Oct 1966)

Mr Derek Page: Nothing said by the Joint Parliamentary Secretary today will do anything to resolve that. The hon. Gentleman has left many points unresolved.

Will the Minister wait for the Report of the Royal Commission on Local...

Orders of the Day — New Towns Bill (28 Oct 1966)

Mr Derek Page: I assure the hon. Gentleman that we will have some battles when this Clause comes up for debate in Committee.
