Orders of the Day — Employment (Holiday Extension and Early Retirement) Bill (18 Feb 1972)

Mr Greville Janner: The element in the speech of the hon. Member for Paddington, South (Mr. Scott) which appealed to me most was that in which he emphasised the necessity for a person to have a choice in the way in which he spends his holidays and the days and times of his leisure hours, and, above all, to have a choice as to the age at which he retires. In theory, such a choice already often exists, but when...

Orders of the Day — Employment (Holiday Extension and Early Retirement) Bill (18 Feb 1972)

Mr Greville Janner: I am obliged for that intervention. That is certainly correct. The trouble is that far too many people retire and then soon die, simply because they are bored and unprepared for what is coming. What is more, those who labour on, rising early and going to work, are penalised for it. Those who stay on at work after retirement age ought not to have their pensions taken away from them because...

Orders of the Day — Coal Industry (Wilberforce Report) (18 Feb 1972)

Mr Greville Janner: Whatever be the result of the current negotiations, may we hear from the right hon. Gentleman now that the Government have learned a lesson from this very sad matter—[HON. MEMBERS: "Oh."]—and that they will never again allow a confrontation of this kind, which can destroy the country through Government inaction?

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Polluted Soil (1 Feb 1972)

Mr Greville Janner: Is the hon. Gentleman aware that, apart from the researches of a Dr. Pinsent of the Royal College of General Practitioners, there appears to be no information available about the long-term effects on life and health of living on toxic soil? In view of the grave public concern about pollution, will he initiate research into this important subject?

Exclusion Clauses (Services) (25 Jan 1972)

Mr Greville Janner: I beg to move, That leave be given to bring in a Bill to render void or illegal certain exclusion clauses or other exclusion terms or conditions in contracts for the performance of services, including contracts with car parks or garages. At present, whether someone is hiring, garaging or travelling in a car, removing furniture or dry-cleaning or laundering clothing, it is fairly certain that...

Mr Greville Janner: asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he will seek powers to give directions to local highway authorities concerning the repair and upkeep of pavements.

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Pavements (15 Dec 1971)

Mr Greville Janner: Is the hon. Gentleman aware of the deplorable state of pavements in various parts of the country, particularly in Leicester? Does he not agree that with winter approaching this is a particular hazard to elderly people? Will he not do something to enable local authorities to fix pavements and not merely roads?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: India and Pakistan (13 Dec 1971)

Mr Greville Janner: Can the Minister say how many people have suffered poisoning as a result of eating unlabelled frozen birds in the past 12 months?

Industrial Court (23 Nov 1971)

Mr Greville Janner: The point of the order is that it is giving a new jurisdiction to a new Court. We are entitled to look both at the Court and at the jurisdiction which it is to receive. I object to the order on an additional ground beyond those taken by my hon. Friend the Member for Liverpool, Walton (Mr. Heffer). We must look not just at the work load which the Court will acquire as a result of the Order; we...

Industrial Court (23 Nov 1971)

Mr Greville Janner: One of my great worries on the subject is that the judges will not necessarily be specialists in industrial law, in the sense that they are people with training either in that area of law or with understanding of how the people concerned consider the matters with which they are involved. Industrial disputes cannot be dealt with purely on the basis of a so-called legal framework. It must be...

Industrial Court (23 Nov 1971)

Mr Greville Janner: Because I consider that the Industrial Court is going to be a disaster. I prefer the law to remain at least in good repute in part of the area in which it is administered. I think that this Court is unfair to the judges who will have to deal with it, to the litigants who will appear before it, and that it is wrong that this transfer should be achieved. It is said that there are to be the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Hospitals (Terminal Patients, Privacy) (9 Nov 1971)

Mr Greville Janner: asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether he will require hospital boards and management committees to take steps to ensure that patients are enabled to die in the maximum privacy and with the minimum distress to other patients.

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Hospitals (Terminal Patients, Privacy) (9 Nov 1971)

Mr Greville Janner: If the Minister believes that hospital authorities are aware of the need to do this, why is not something positive being done about it? Is it not the fact that in the majority of cases it is known when a patient is about to die? Is it not realised that when a patient dies without privacy, a great deal of quite unnecessary suffering is caused to people in adjoining beds? For the sake of the...

Mr Greville Janner: asked the Minister of Posts and Telecommunications whether he will now issue a general direction to the Post Office Corporation to give absolute priority to disabled persons in the allocation of telephones.

Oral Answers to Questions — Posts and Telecommunications: Telephone Service (Priority List) (20 Oct 1971)

Mr Greville Janner: Is the Minister not aware that all disabled people have a far greater need for a telephone than other people? Is he further aware that the prices which are charged and which some people can pay are a great burden on disabled people and often prevent them from having a telephone? In the circumstances, first, will he take steps to relieve disabled people of at least some of the charges, and,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Posts and Telecommunications: Broadcast Receiving Licences (20 Oct 1971)

Mr Greville Janner: Is the Minister aware that there is tremendous dissatisfaction among elderly people, such as pensioners, about the present system, whereby they pay the same amount for a licence as is paid by a wealthy person with a colour television and four other sets in his house? Does he consider that that is fair? If not, will he now do something about it?
