Gerald Kaufman: Mr. Kaufman rose—

Orders of the Day — Local Government (Quali Fication of Councillors) Bill (2 Nov 1970)

Gerald Kaufman: I totally concur with everything that my hon. Friend is saying. Might not some protection be available for the electors of an area, if the Bill is rail-roaded through, as it apparently is going to be, if an amendment were inserted compelling those who live outside a local authority to place on their ballot paper details of their place of residence and their place of work?

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: British Railways (Catering Services) (4 Nov 1970)

Gerald Kaufman: In view of the Prime Minister's personal commitment to cut into the wage-price spiral in the public sector at a stroke, will the hon. Gentleman approach British Rail and ask it to reduce the price of less than half a pint of milk in a beaker in British Rail snack bars to below the outrageous price of 1s. 1d.?

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Married Women (Repayment of Contributions) (10 Nov 1970)

Gerald Kaufman: asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will amend the National Insurance (Contributions) Regulations, 1969, (S.I. No. 1696) so as to provide for the repayment of contributions to married women who, having made insufficient contributions, fail to qualify for retirement pension under the half-test condition; and if he will make this repayment retrospective in any cases which may...

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Married Women (Repayment of Contributions) (10 Nov 1970)

Gerald Kaufman: I am very grateful to the hon. Gentleman. I hope that in considering the case he will be kind enough to take into account the fact that a constitutent of mine has paid more than 500 contributions but does not qualify for retirement benefit in her own right and has no right to the return of her contributions.

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland (12 Nov 1970)

Gerald Kaufman: Did the right hon. Gentleman in his discussions with the Northern Ireland Government raise the question of abolishing the work permit system, taking into account the great resentment that is felt among British workmen, particularly those in Manchester, at being prevented from working in Northern Ireland when, through their taxes, they are contributing large sums to subsidise Northern Ireland?

Orders of the Day — Income and Corporation Taxes Bill (13 Nov 1970)

Gerald Kaufman: Would my hon. Friend, who is a distinguished expert in these matters, take into account one disincentive to saving, which is that by the reduction in the standard rate of income tax people going in for house purchase will now lose part of the tax relief they get? Hon. Gentlemen opposite to whom I have put the question are quite unable to quantify this, but it is a disincentive.

East Pakistan (Flood Disaster) (16 Nov 1970)

Gerald Kaufman: In joining the hon. Member for Bradford, West (Mr. Wilkinson) in expressing concern and sympathy for those people in this country who may be relatives of those who may have suffered in this appalling disaster, may I ask the Foreign Secretary whether, when the immediate chaos and confusion have blown away, he will be ready to afford and perhaps manufacture facilities for Pakistanis in this...

Gerald Kaufman: On a point of order—

Questions to Ministers (17 Nov 1970)

Gerald Kaufman: On a point of order. As a new Member, I raise this point with some diffidence, but it is a matter which has caused concern both to myself and to my hon. Friends on this side, and perhaps to hon. Gentlemen opposite. During the Summer Recess I put down a Question to the Secretary of State for Employment and Productivity which was, because of its nature, transferred to the Attorney-General....

Oral Answers to Questions — Posts and Telecommunications: Licences (23 Nov 1970)

Gerald Kaufman: Will the Minister reconsider the matter, and consult his right hon. Friend the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food? Does he not think that the gun licence element of the proposal would be a great convenience to old age pensioners wishing to go pigeon shooting?

Gerald Kaufman: In view of Major Jalloud's categorical statement that if Britain supplies Chieftain tanks to Libya, Libya is determined to use those tanks against Israel, will the Prime Minister give a categorical assurance that no Chieftain tanks will be supplied to Libya?

Oral Answers to Questions — Housing and Construction: Council House Sales (25 Nov 1970)

Gerald Kaufman: Will the Minister issue instructions forbidding the Conservative council in Manchester to sell any more council houses until such time as my 154 cinstituents in the slum clearance area of West Gorton, who have been left alone, who are mainly old people and who are having to live in conditions of dampness, lack of water supply and rat infestation, have had their rehousing completed, since on...

Business of the House (26 Nov 1970)

Gerald Kaufman: Will the Leader of the House arrange for the Minister of State for Defence to make a statement to this House about the legality of the Army's operations in Belfast from 3rd to 5th July of this year? Does not the right hon. Gentleman think that it is time that this House had an explanation of why communicants were prevented from going to confession, why men were prevented from going to work...

Industrial Relations (26 Nov 1970)

Gerald Kaufman: Read on.

Industrial Relations (26 Nov 1970)

Gerald Kaufman: On a point of order. Is it in order for the right hon. Gentleman to read a tiny, selective quotation from the speech of the right hon. Gentleman at the Festival Hall last year when later in that speech the present Leader of the Opposition specifically said that he was ready to listen to further suggestions from the T.U.C. and to drop his legislation if the T.U.C. put forward viable proposals?

Industrial Relations (26 Nov 1970)

Gerald Kaufman: On a point of order. May I point out that if I had been asked to help the right hon. Gentleman with his speech it would have been less drab than it is?

Consumer Protection and Cost of Living (30 Nov 1970)

Gerald Kaufman: Before my hon. Friend leaves this point of council house rents, would he consider, as a Manchester Member, asking the Government Front Bench before the end of the debate to give their view on the estimate of the Manchester Evening News, confirmed as realistic by a spokesmen of the Manchester City Council, that their housing subsidy policy will mean an increase on average of £1 a week for...
