B.B.C. Scottish Orchestra (6 May 1959)

Mr William Hannan: The subject of tonight's Adjournment debate is of extreme importance to music lovers throughout Scotland. It is not only for the musicians, for their union, or merely for the composers or teachers for whom I shall try to speak. In addition to those very important people, there are the ordinary persons in Scotland who are keen listeners to good music. I want, first, to assure the...

Orders of the Day — Scotland (Crofters Building Grants) (5 May 1959)

Sir John Macleod: I am glad to be able to raise this evening the case of a constituent of mine who has been refused a grant under the Crofters Building Grants (Scotland) Regulations, 1956, for the sole reason, as far as I can see, that he is considered to be an incomer of professional status. By the refusal of this grant, I think the Government are defeating their own policy with regard to the Highlands. I...

Orders of the Day — Fuel and Power (4 May 1959)

Mr Emanuel Shinwell: The hon. Member for Sheffield, Heeley (Sir P. Roberts) made an interesting and well-documented speech. In that speech he proved to be much more progressive than the Paymaster-General, the Minister of Power and the Government. That, of course, is not surprising. It was obvious from the speech of the Paymaster-General that not only is he complacent, as the hon. Member observed, but that he...

Mr George Thomson: I beg to move, That an humble Address be presented to Her Majesty, praying that the Further Education (Scotland) Regulations, 1959 (S.I., 1959, No. 477), dated 18th March, 1959, a copy of which was laid before this House on 7th April, be annulled.

Horticultural Industry (1 May 1959)

Sir Henry Legge-Bourke: ...and the all-round increase in producers' costs, calls upon Her Majesty's Government to give urgent consideration to the problems of developing British horticulture in the way required in the foreseeable future, and the means whereby growers may fairly be enabled to play their full part in meeting the demands of consumers. The House will recollect in studying this matter that horticultural...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: N.a.T.O. (30 Apr 1959)

Mr Geoffrey Lloyd: The distribution was made by the British Atlantic Committee on its own responsibility. It first suggested to local education authorities that schools might wish to commemorate the tenth anniversary of N.A.T.O. and offered copies of the two documents if they wished to have them. The Committee neither required nor sought my authority for this.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Teacher Training (30 Apr 1959)

Mr Alan Fitch: asked the Minister of Education if he is aware that the Professional Board of the School of Education of Manchester University has passed a resolution deploring the way in which he has so far ignored the functions of area training organisations in the preparation of detailed proposals for the expansion of training colleges, and expressed its opinion that before any plans were announced...

Orders of the Day — Youth Employment Problems (30 Apr 1959)

Mr Alfred Robens: I am sure that the Committee is grateful to the Opposition for choosing the problem of youth employment for discussion today because while, at present, it appears only as a cloud the size of a man's hand, if it is not dealt with it could rapidly become, in the next few years, a storm which could overwhelm our industrial abilities as a nation. Hon. Members might first like to express...

Orders of the Day — Youth Employment Problems (30 Apr 1959)

Mr George Thomas: the Government, as everyone concerned is bound to welcome it. Nonetheless, there are other aspects of the problem to which I think I ought to refer ere I resume my seat. The time is opportune for raising the school-leaving age. I hate the thought of thousands of youngsters who are denied an opportunity of proper training in industry being thrust out from the schools too soon. There are...

Education (Schools Regulations) (27 Apr 1959)

Mr Michael Maitland Stewart: I beg to move, That an humble Address be presented to Her Majesty, praying that the Schools Regulations, 1959 (S.1. 1959, No. 364), dated 5th March, 1959, a copy of which was laid before this House on 12th March, he annulled. I am happy to see that the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Education is joining us in our discussion of these Regulations. One of the results of the passing...

Railways (Pleasington Station) (27 Apr 1959)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: at a hamlet of the name of Pleasington, which then, I believe, consisted of three houses. The station having been built, a considerable village grew up dependent entirely upon the railway for its communications. There were then, as now, very bad roads leading to and from the village, and until the advent of the motor car the villagers used the railway exclusively. Even today there is...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Schools (Sanitation) (23 Apr 1959)

Miss Irene Ward: While thanking my right hon. Friend for his courtesy, may I ask whether he will make a general inquiry, because would he not agree that in 1959, with so many good modern schools being built, it is quite beyond the pale that a number of children should have to go to schools where there is no modern sanitation? Will he press local education committees in this matter?

Welsh Affairs (23 Apr 1959)

Mr James Jones: ...national life must be able to hold itself together within the geographical boundaries of Wales if the nation is to survive. This thesis has been stated time and time again, but I make no apology for saying that it is against that background that I shall discuss the Report before us today. We are concerned with the economic and cultural life of a people living as a national entity within...

Orders of the Day — Street Offences Bill: New Clause. — (Conviction of Offenders Under Eighteen.) (22 Apr 1959)

Mrs Lena Jeger: I beg to second the Motion. The Government have made it clear that their main purpose in bringing the Bill before the House is to do something about the condition of the streets of our large cities, especially London. I believe that many hon. Members on both sides of the House hope that Parliament will take a more constructive attitude to the problem and take the opportunity in this...
