Orders of the Day — National Health Service (Charges for Appliances) (21 Jul 1969)

Mr Tom Driberg: Does my right hon. Friend recall the name of a person called Aneurin Bevan, whose friend he once pretended to be? Would he have dared to address this thin pragmatical argument to that great man?

Overseas Representation (Report of Review Committee) (16 Jul 1969)

Mr Tom Driberg: Would my right hon. Friend consider that the very fact of military withdrawal from east of Suez, which is fully supported on this side of the House, may itself make it more necessary that we should retain a strong diplomatic and what might be called a cultural presence in many countries throughout the world, not least in the Commonwealth?

Clause 5: Loans for Purchase or Improvement of Land (16 Jul 1969)

Mr Tom Driberg: I shall speak briefly at this time of night. It is nobody's fault in particular that this Amendment happens to arise so inconveniently late, and I am sorry to detain the House for even a few minutes. I support the Amendment, because if my right hon. Friend were to reject it he would be doing something which would tend to frustrate the intention of the Government themselves, who provide these...

Clause 5: Loans for Purchase or Improvement of Land (16 Jul 1969)

Mr Tom Driberg: If my right hon. Friend is hinting, in a slightly encouraging way, that what we ask for may be covered in part by (2)(b), is there not some risk that (5) would cancel that out in respect of a good many, perhaps most, of the houses eligible for grant?

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment and Productivity: Index of Retail Prices (26 Jun 1969)

Mr Tom Driberg: asked the Secretary of State for Employment and Productivity if she will publish regularly a cost-of-living index containing information on insurance, mortgage repayments, taxation and other matters which are excluded from the Index of Retail Prices.

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment and Productivity: Index of Retail Prices (26 Jun 1969)

Mr Tom Driberg: Since it is officially admitted that the accuracy of the present index is widely doubted, would it not be better to replace it by a real, comprehensive, and credible cost-of-living index?

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment and Productivity: Cost of Living Advisory Committee (26 Jun 1969)

Mr Tom Driberg: asked the Secretary of State for Employment and Productivity if she will broaden the membership and understanding of the Cost of Living Advisory Committee by adding to it some consumers' representatives, more trade union representatives, and at least two housewives from the middle and lower income groups.

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment and Productivity: Cost of Living Advisory Committee (26 Jun 1969)

Mr Tom Driberg: Does the omission of housewives from my hon. Friend's Answer mean that they are not adequately represented, in his view?

Oral Answers to Questions — Roads: Car Parking (London) (9 Jun 1969)

Mr Tom Driberg: asked the Minister of Transport if he is aware that inconvenience is caused to residents of towns on the periphery of London by commuters from more distant parts who ignore local authority car parks and park their cars in residential streets before taking trains to London; and if he will seek to provide against this practice.

Oral Answers to Questions — Roads: Car Parking (London) (9 Jun 1969)

Mr Tom Driberg: While thanking my hon. Friend for his two very helpful letters on this subject, may I ask whether he will consider circulating in HANSARD details of the London boroughs which already have schemes for residents' parking permits in their own streets?

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Supplementary Benefits (19 May 1969)

Mr Tom Driberg: asked the Secretary of State for Social Services why, when there is an increase of rent or other changed circumstance which justifies an increase in supplementary benefit, such increased benefit cannot be paid until the pensioner's current order book is exhausted, and then cannot be back-dated; and if he will remedy this anomaly.

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Supplementary Benefits (19 May 1969)

Mr Tom Driberg: Since that seems to mean that administrative convenience takes precedence over individual welfare, does my hon. Friend realise what hardship is caused to a number of people by the application of this rule? It would not be so difficult administratively. Why, therefore, can the increase not be backdated?

Orders of the Day — Members' Interests (Declaration) (14 May 1969)

Mr Tom Driberg: My right hon. Friend kept on interrupting.

Orders of the Day — Members' Interests (Declaration) (14 May 1969)

Mr Tom Driberg: I have been provoked to my feet by some of the things that my right hon. Friend the Leader of the House has just said. He said that this was the normal way in which Select Committees were selected. But it has not resulted in the usual sort of Select Committee. Very few Select Committees consist only of Privy Councillors. Did my right hon. Friend mean something else?

Orders of the Day — Members' Interests (Declaration) (14 May 1969)

Mr Tom Driberg: I echo completely what my right hon. Friend and others have said about the integrity of all these colleagues of ours. We all respect them; we like them; we know them. They have all the virtues except perhaps one—I regard it as a virtue—and that is a readiness to examine on its merits any proposal for radical change. This is a situation in which it seems to many hon. Members, perhaps not...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Young Servicemen (Morale and Conditions) (7 May 1969)

Mr Tom Driberg: Does my right hon. Friend agree that it is not tampering with the morale and loyalty of the forces to recognise that 15-year-olds who sign on for 12 years without really knowing what they are doing should be released, or given the option of release, at 18 in accordance with the Report of the Latey Committee?

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Army Detention Barracks (7 May 1969)
