Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Teachers (Supply) (31 May 1951)

Mr Christopher Hollis: Would the Minister agree that it is necessary not merely to make it more widely known—what he says is perfectly true—but that the Report also calls attention to the fact that there is great anxiety as to whether a sufficient supply of these mature teachers will be forthcoming in future? Is it not possible, not only to make the facilities more widely known, but to extend the facilities?

Orders of the Day — Schedule. — (Acts Providing for Common Informer Actions.) ( 4 May 1951)

Mr Christopher Hollis: I hope it will not be considered presumptuous of me if I say that I speak for all hon. and right hon. Members in this House, certainly for large numbers, in expressing my congratulations to my hon. and learned Friend the Member for Chertsey (Mr. Heald). This common informer legislation was a type of legislation which has been on the Statute Book for many centuries and of which we are not...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Teachers' Pensions ( 3 May 1951)

Mr Christopher Hollis: asked the Minister of Education whether he is aware that there is a continuing liability on school teachers to contribute towards their pensions but only an annually renewed liability by the Government to pay those pensions; and whether he will amend the Teachers (Superannuation) Act, 1925, so as to put the teachers' benefits on the same footing as their liabilities.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Teachers' Pensions ( 3 May 1951)

Mr Christopher Hollis: There appears to be some misunderstanding between us. The right hon. Gentleman referred to the provisions of the Act. Does he not recollect that in the First Schedule it specifically says that teachers have no claim to pension as a right? Will he bear in mind that under Section 15 of that Act a fund is set up which really is a purely legal fiction? When the time comes for new educational...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Middlesex County Council (Teachers) ( 3 May 1951)

Mr Christopher Hollis: Does the right hon. Gentleman recollect that last week the Home Secretary said that he, the Minister of Education, was considering this matter? I am not pressing him to take action. He has very limited powers under the Act, and I am doubtful whether they would apply to this case, but I am sure it is desirable that the anxiety of people should be relieved and that they should know where they...

Oral Answers to Questions — Festival of Britain: Pleasure Gardens ( 1 May 1951)

Orders of the Day — Educational Expenditure (Priorities) (17 Apr 1951)

Mr Christopher Hollis: The hon. Member for Halifax (Mr. Brook) said that the dividing line between the Conservative and the Socialist Parties in this matter was the concern of the Conservatives with the financial factor, as he called it. Frankly, I should have thought that that was not the dividing line between Conservatives and Socialists, but the dividing line between sane men and lunatics. There seems to be no...

Orders of the Day — Educational Expenditure (Priorities) (17 Apr 1951)

Mr Christopher Hollis: I should prefer to make my own speech and my own comments. The hon. Gentleman also said that I and my hon. Friends were concerned with the financial factor. The fact of the matter is, as we all realise, that unfortunately we are in a very difficult financial situation, and it is therefore common sense that we should give our minds to seeing in what way we can save money without sacrificing...

Oral Answers to Questions — British Council (16 Apr 1951)

Mr Christopher Hollis: In view of the fact that it is quite clear that many things that have been done in the past will not be done at all in the future, and in view of such statements, as, for instance, that of the Vice-Chancellor of Australia's National University, that, pound for pound, the expenditure of the Council in China had brought far greater dividends to the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth than any...
