Gerald Kaufman: asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what plans he has for increasing war disability pensions.

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: War Disability Pensions (1 Dec 1970)

Gerald Kaufman: Does the hon. Gentleman realise that this is not good enough, that since this Government came to power, because of the fall in the value of money, the 100 per cent. disability pension for people in my constituency has fallen by 3s. 6d.? Since the Government have given notice to the people in high income brackets that they are to benefit from a bonanza because of the reduction of income tax,...

Gerald Kaufman: asked the Prime Minister what plans he now has for further discussions with the Prime Ministers of the countries of the European Economic Community.

Oral Answers to Questions — European Economic Community (1 Dec 1970)

Gerald Kaufman: When the Prime Minister takes part in such talks, will he take the opportunity of discussing with the Prime Ministers of the Six the curious anomaly which would arise under Article 48 of the Treaty of Rome if we were to enter the Common Market; namely, that workers from the Six would have freedom of movement into Great Britain, whereas workers in Great Britain would have to have a work permit...

Orders of the Day — British Standard Time (2 Dec 1970)

Gerald Kaufman: Mr. Gerald Kaufman (Manchester, Ardwick) rose—

Orders of the Day — British Standard Time (2 Dec 1970)

Gerald Kaufman: May I ask the right hon. Gentleman a question? May I take it that, in the event of the House rejecting the Order, it will be necessary for the Government to come forward with a proposal for some new period?

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Students (Voting Entitlement) (3 Dec 1970)

Gerald Kaufman: Will the hon. Gentleman resist the view of the hon. Member for Oxford (Mr. Woodhouse)? Will he agree that there is no reason why students alone should be excluded from double residence qualifications when wealthy members of the Tory Party have them? It would be quite wrong to accept this suggestion at a time when the Government are rigging the qualification for candidates in local elections.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Union Jack (7 Dec 1970)

Gerald Kaufman: asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what criteria govern the lowering to half-mast of the Union Jack over United Kingdom diplomatic missions in the capitals of foreign countries on the occasion of the funeral of a foreign head of state or head of government.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Union Jack (7 Dec 1970)

Gerald Kaufman: Can the right hon. Gentleman explain, therefore, why it was decided that the Union Jack should be lowered to half-mast in Jerusalem on the day of President Nasser's funeral? Would he not agree that although President Nasser's death was greeted with widespread regret in this country, it inevitably aroused more mixed feelings in Israel; and that this action was an act of insensitivity on a par...

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: College for Blind Persons (Manchester) (10 Dec 1970)

Gerald Kaufman: asked the Secretary of State for Employment whether he will consult with the Royal National Institute for the Blind with regard to the establishment in Manchester of a rehabilitation and retraining college for blind people wishing to be placed in employment.

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: College for Blind Persons (Manchester) (10 Dec 1970)

Gerald Kaufman: Does not the Under-Secretary of State agree that it is a considerable ordeal for blind people in the north of England to go so far from their homes as London, which is the only place to which they can go for courses of training to rehabilitate them and make them fit for occupations which will normalise their lives? Would he not accept that a college such as this could be a centre for the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: College for Blind Persons (Manchester) (10 Dec 1970)

Gerald Kaufman: In view of the unsatisfactory nature of the Minister's reply, Mr. Speaker, I beg to give notice that I shall seek to raise the matter on the Adjournment at the earliest possible opportunity.

Local Government (Rate Support Grants) (10 Dec 1970)

Gerald Kaufman: The hon. Gentleman makes a fair point, which one can accept without any party political undertones, about difficult economic circumstances. He says, or implies, that because of these it is necessary for local authorities to rein back their expenditure and that this is the Government's policy. But how can the hon. Gentleman reconcile that, which is a logical policy on its own, with the...

Local Government (Rate Support Grants) (10 Dec 1970)

Gerald Kaufman: We have as a guest in this country just now Professor Galbraith. It is a pity that he cannot be here to listen to our debate, for were he to be present he would be able to listen to a Government pursuing a policy which is turning into reality in Britain, after the six years during which we tried to go the other way, his concept of public squalor in the midst of private affluence. That is what...

Local Government (Rate Support Grants) (10 Dec 1970)

Gerald Kaufman: The problem of rodent infestation is encountered in my constituency. It is one of the most abominable things that families with children have to put up with in certain parts of my constituency. It takes quite an effort to get Manchester Corporation to do something about it. My hon. Friend the Member for Birmingham, Ladywood (Mrs. Doris Fisher) spoke about amenities around new housing...

Local Government (Rate Support Grants) (10 Dec 1970)

Gerald Kaufman: Government policy will put unprecedented amounts on the rents in the constituency. The Manchester Evening News has estimated that the Government's policy will add nearly £1 a week to rents for my constituents, many thousands of whom live in corporation dwellings, and a spokesman for the corporation has described that estimate as realistic. I would welcome the hon. Gentleman to Manchester at...

Local Government (Rate Support Grants) (10 Dec 1970)

Gerald Kaufman: Would not my hon. Friend agree that if this Order had not been put forward the householders would have been aided more by the Government, and that, therefore, the resources which the householders are now being called on to provide under the Order would have been available to pursue this quarrel with the G.L.C.?

Local Government (Rate Support Grants) (10 Dec 1970)

Gerald Kaufman: Surely the philosophy of the hon. Gentleman's party at the General Election, a philosophy which had great appeal for obvious reasons, was that indirect regressive taxes should be cut back, because these were a burden on the cost of living. As my right hon. Friend the Member for Grimsby (Mr. Crosland) has made absolutely clear, one of the most important regressive taxes is the domestic rate....

LOCAL AUTHORITIES (QUALIFI- CATION OF MEMBERS) BILL (changed from LOCAL GOVERN- MENT (QUALIFICATION OF COUNCILLORS) BILL): Alternative Qualifications for Nomination and Election to, and Membership of, Local Authorities (15 Dec 1970)

Gerald Kaufman: Present on the Treasury Bench are representatives of the Home Office, the Scottish Office and the Department of the Civil Service. In a matter which is particularly relevant to local government reform, and in view of its implications for local government reform, I cannot understand why there is no representative of the Department of the Environment, which has to consider these matters....

LOCAL AUTHORITIES (QUALIFI- CATION OF MEMBERS) BILL (changed from LOCAL GOVERN- MENT (QUALIFICATION OF COUNCILLORS) BILL): Alternative Qualifications for Nomination and Election to, and Membership of, Local Authorities (15 Dec 1970)

Gerald Kaufman: The Under-Secretary is, as always, particularly courteous to the House. He has referred to the Department of the Environment. Can we be informed why the Department is not represented on the Front Bench on this Bill which is totally relevant to the Department? I see the Parliamentary Private Secretary to the Leader of the House is here, another courteous hon. Gentleman. Cannot someone from the...
