Orders of the Day — Diplomatic Immunities (Commonwealth Countries and Republic of Ireland) Bill: School Building Programme (28 Feb 1952)

Mr Christopher Hollis: No one says we should not do any building at the present time. The hon. Gentleman talks of Coventry as a place with a rapidly growing population, and if his facts are right special consideration should be given to such a place. But my argument is that this talk by hon. Members opposite of building is a travesty of the facts, as when they suggest that as much as possible in the way of...

Sterling Area (Closer Co-Operation) (22 Feb 1952)

Mr Christopher Hollis: I am sure that we can all congratulate the hon. Member for Wandsworth, Central (Mr. Adams) on his good fortune in the ballot, and on the subject he has chosen to raise. With a very large proportion of the observations made by both him and other hon. and right hon. Members opposite I am happy to find myself in complete agreement. But there are, I think, just one or two little friendly tiffs...

Sterling Area (Closer Co-Operation) (22 Feb 1952)

Mr Christopher Hollis: I am reminded of an incident of my schooldays when, in the school debating society, we discussed a motion that too much novel reading was a bad thing. We rejected it, of course, by a substantial majority. I agree that if we go at too great a pace that is a bad thing. The whole question is: What is too great a pace? I appreciate that we cannot argue that today, but perhaps there will be an...

Sterling Area (Closer Co-Operation) (22 Feb 1952)

Mr Christopher Hollis: Would my right hon. Friend, before he concludes, tell us something about the problem of reserves?

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Voluntary Schools (22 Nov 1951)

Mr Christopher Hollis: Is my right hon. Friend aware that while we all wish her well in working out such legislative proposals as may seem necessary, at the same time this problem is also largely a matter of administration, and will she do all she possibly can to preserve the happy relationship between local education authorities and the different denominations which exist over the greater part of the country, upon...

Foreign Affairs (19 Nov 1951)

Mr Christopher Hollis: The House is indebted, I am sure, to the right hon. Gentleman the Member for East Stirling (Mr. Woodburn), for his analysis of the situation in Russia. Some of the items of the analysis seemed to meet with disfavour on the part of some of his hon Friends, and others with disfavour amongst others of his hon. Friends, but we were all interested, I am sure, in what he had to say. What I was not...

Foreign Affairs (19 Nov 1951)

Mr Christopher Hollis: I did not say a word about federalisation.

Orders of the Day — Education (24 Jul 1951)

Mr Christopher Hollis: Woodall.

Orders of the Day — Education (24 Jul 1951)

Mr Christopher Hollis: It is customary in these debates to congratulate one another that education at any rate is not a party issue. Indeed, that is true, and none of us would have it otherwise. Nevertheless, as I once said in a previous debate, though that is a good thing there is a certain danger in it, because there are certain causes for alarm in the educational world, and we should do no great service to our...

Orders of the Day — Education (24 Jul 1951)

Mr Christopher Hollis: I take what the Minister of Education has said.

Orders of the Day — Education (24 Jul 1951)

Mr Christopher Hollis: There is obviously a very serious problem. The second question that we should like to ask the Minister is whether the trouble is that we are not getting sufficient good teachers. We have heard a good deal about quantity of teachers, but we are much more concerned about the quality of the teachers. Are we moving into a situation where sixth forms will be fuller than they ever were before,...

Orders of the Day — Education (24 Jul 1951)

Mr Christopher Hollis: Until the answers to these question are sorted out, it does not deserve to be dignified by the name of an experiment. I listened with very great interest, as I always do, to the speech of the hon. Member for Southampton, Itchen (Mr. Morley), who showed us very clearly that there are very great difficulties about the problem of the selection of boys at the age of 11. But he did not show any...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Training Colleges (Women Students) ( 5 Jul 1951)

Mr Christopher Hollis: asked the Minister of Education what number of women candidates are required for 1951 for the two-year training colleges; and whether present applications are as yet sufficient to fill that number this autumn.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Training Colleges (Women Students) ( 5 Jul 1951)

Mr Christopher Hollis: Can the hon. Gentleman tell us the exact relationship, if they are not quite the same, between the places available in the training colleges mentioned in the hon. Member's Question and the places required to fulfil the educational programme in my Question? Are there enough places available to fulfil the required educational programme?

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Teachers (Special Allowances) ( 5 Jul 1951)

Mr Christopher Hollis: asked the Minister of Education whether he will make, or publish, a statement on the various schemes by which local education authorities are proposing to pay the special allowances for teachers recommended in the Burnham Award.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Teachers (Special Allowances) ( 5 Jul 1951)

Mr Christopher Hollis: I am perfectly well aware of that, but it is not an answer to my Question. I am aware that this is a matter for the local education authorities, but a new principle of decision of great importance rests upon it. Is the hon. Gentleman aware that at least three local education authorities have said that they would be glad to know how other education authorities are dealing with this problem, so...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Comprehensive Schools (Curricula) ( 5 Jul 1951)

Mr Christopher Hollis: asked the Minister of Education whether it is the policy of his Department that comprehensive schools be organised on a curriculum pattern or on an ability pattern.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Comprehensive Schools (Curricula) ( 5 Jul 1951)

Mr Christopher Hollis: Would it not be very much better if the Socialist Party did not undertake propaganda in favour of the principle of the comprehensive school until they had found out how the comprehensive school will work?

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Supply: Iron and Steel Federation (Minister's Speech) ( 2 Jul 1951)

Mr Christopher Hollis: asked the Prime Minister whether the speech of the Minister of Supply at Margate on 21st June, to the effect that drastic action would be taken against the Iron and Steel Federation if the Federation refused to the Iron and Steel Corporation effective control of purchase of iron ore abroad, represented the policy of the Government.

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Supply: Iron and Steel Federation (Minister's Speech) ( 2 Jul 1951)

Mr Christopher Hollis: Is the Prime Minister aware that the Minister of Supply accused the Federation of using every device, legal or otherwise? Will he tell the House whether he repudiates that charge on behalf of the Minister of Supply, or whether he supports it?
