Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Housing for the Aged (20 Oct 1971)

Mr Greville Janner: Is it not right that elderly people as a whole are far less well off than the rest of the community?

In those circumstances, would the Minister reconsider his decision and give a firm directive to all local authorities that absolute priority should be given to homes for elderly people?

Oral Answers to Questions — National Industrial Relations Court (18 Oct 1971)

Mr Greville Janner: As the new court is to deal, among other things, with agency shop agreement disputes, bargaining agencies, procedure agreements and emergency procedures, as well as appeals from the industrial tribunal, does the right hon. and learned Gentleman not anticipate a queue of staggering proportions outside the Court? Is it not quite unreasonable to appoint only three judges to the Court? Is this...

Orders of the Day — Industrial Relations Bill: Fair and Unfair Dismissal (3 Aug 1971)

Mr Greville Janner: Is the position now to be that a settlement will be permitted only if it has the blessing of the conciliation officer concerned, or will the settlements, in the hon. and learned Gentleman's view, be permitted where there is no such blessing? My understanding of this is that, even as the provision is amended, the conciliation officer will have to approve of any settlement.

Orders of the Day — Industrial Relations Bill: Fair and Unfair Dismissal (2 Aug 1971)

Mr Greville Janner: I echo what has been said by my hon. Friend the Member for Manchester, Blackley (Mr. Rose) about the importance of this part of the Bill, which, in my view, is likely to have, actually or poten- tially, quite as great an effect on most workers, at every level, as any others of its provisions. It is a disgrace that we have not had opportunity to consider it in detail up to now. At this...

Mr Greville Janner: Would the hon. Gentleman not agree that if the present rate of crime is to be reduced, it is absolutely essential that young people should understand that the police are their friends and that the police should understand the problems of young people?

Drugs and Poisons (Child-Resistant Containers) (13 Jul 1971)

Mr Greville Janner: I beg to move, That leave be given to bring in a Bill to make it unlawful to supply drugs or poisonous substances otherwise than in child-resistant containers.

Children (Accidental Poisoning) (7 Jul 1971)

Mr Greville Janner: I am happy to have the opportunity to draw to the attention of the House the monstrous and quite unnecessary suffering caused through the accidental poisoning of children.

This is nothing more than the tip of the poisoned iceberg....

Children (Accidental Poisoning) (7 Jul 1971)

Mr Greville Janner: The hon. Gentleman will be aware of the considerable increase in the number of poisonings in this country over the years.
