Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Old Persons' Home, Manchester (25 May 1971)

Gerald Kaufman: Does the hon. Gentleman realise that that reply will be a bitter disappointment to the people of Manchester? Is he not aware that his Department's inspectors have been to St. Joseph's Home and have seen the superb work carried out by these dedicated and saintly women in giving a decent home to more than 100 old people, without any pay for themselves or help from the Government, and with only...

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Old Persons' Home, Manchester (25 May 1971)

Gerald Kaufman: On a point of order. I did not wish to take the time of the House by raising this point earlier, Mr. Speaker, particularly during Questions to the Prime Minister. I wish to give notice that, in view of the unsatisfactory nature of the answer given to my Question No. 30, I shall seek to raise this subject on the Adjournment at the earliest possible moment.

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Redundancies (Manchester) (27 May 1971)

Gerald Kaufman: Is the hon. Gentleman aware that, apart from the great anxiety caused by the forthcoming redundancies, there are additional anxieties caused by misunderstandings and fears about the qualifications for redundancy payment at Irlam in relation to the B.S.C. pension fund? I have had representations about this from my constituents. It would be a great help if the Minister could find ways of...

Ulster Defence Regiment (8 Jun 1971)

Gerald Kaufman: Further to the request made by my hon. Friend the Member for Fermanagh and South Tyrone (Mr. McManus), Mr. Speaker, and to your Ruling, would it be in order to ask that one of the Ministers taking part in today's debate should make a statement on the subject about which my hon. Friend has asked?

Business of the House (10 Jun 1971)

Gerald Kaufman: As the right hon. Gentleman has told the House that newer hon. Members require at least a year in which to make up their minds about the comparatively minor question of whether the House should be televised, can he say how many years we will be given to think over the Common Market White Paper before we are asked to reach a decision?

Little Sisters of the Poor (Manchester) (14 Jun 1971)

Gerald Kaufman: I am grateful for the opportunity of raising the question of the old people's home of the Little Sisters of the Poor, in Plymouth Grove in my constituency. The Little Sisters of the Poor is a religious order which came to England from France in 1839. The order has established in this country 26 homes for the care of old people. Two of these homes are in Manchester, one in the constituency of...

Little Sisters of the Poor (Manchester) (14 Jun 1971)

Gerald Kaufman: With respect, the Minister is saying what local authorities may or may not do. This local authority, the Manchester City Council, before the elections—though I do not wish to introduce a party political note—turned us down flat. Therefore, I am not asking what the local authority could do if it wished but what the Government are empowered to do under Section 64 of the Act. I am asking for...

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: £ Sterling (Purchasing Power) (15 Jun 1971)

Gerald Kaufman: Is the Minister aware that he gives the House this melancholy information on the day before the anniversary of the Prime Minister's dishonoured "at a stroke" pledge? Is he further aware that if the Conservative Government go on devaluing the currency at this rate, and if this Parliament lasts its full term of five years, the country will be saddled with "Ted Heath's ten-bob £"?

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Housing (16 Jun 1971)

Gerald Kaufman: Will the Minister ensure that the outcome of these consultations will result in sufficient funds being available to Manchester City Council to make good the neglect of the Conservative Party during its four years in control of that council, so that the thousands of my constituents who are ill-housed can be rehoused quickly at rents which they can afford?

Clause 2: Statement of Right of Abode, and Related Amendments as to Citizenship by Registration (16 Jun 1971)

Gerald Kaufman: My hon. Friends can thank the Home Secretary for pausing to take breath while beating his wife. I contend that he ought not to be beating his wife at all and that this Clause ought not to be in the Bill at all, and that some of the Amendments which my hon. Friends have proposed are still very important, because anomalies arise and those anomalies will not otherwise be dealt with at this...

Clause 2: Statement of Right of Abode, and Related Amendments as to Citizenship by Registration (16 Jun 1971)

Gerald Kaufman: I refer the Home Secretary to his right hon. Friend's exceptionally powerful speech on Second Reading, a speech which convinced me if not him. There are anomalies with regard to this subsection and the subsection which follows, and I trust the Home Secretary will clear them up if he is really to allay our fears. The age limit is a very important one, because if it is not lower than 18 we...

Clause 2: Statement of Right of Abode, and Related Amendments as to Citizenship by Registration (16 Jun 1971)

Gerald Kaufman: Of course, the right hon. Lady is perfectly right about that, but the right hon. Lady does not, perhaps, remember that there were refugees who fled from oppression in their countries, were liable to deportation, and that, and in any case, we are not dealing with a refugee Clause but a deportation Clause. That is why I am concerned about it. We could have that situation—of an infant...

Clause 2: Statement of Right of Abode, and Related Amendments as to Citizenship by Registration (16 Jun 1971)
