Orders of the Day — National Health Service Contributions Bill (8 May 1957)

Sir Keith Joseph: I am simply telling the hon. Lady that if she says that the solution from her party's point of view is to put the full extra burden on the Surtax payers, that is not the solution which was adopted by her right hon. Friend the Leader of the Opposition when he had a similar problem. The right hon. Gentleman had to spread the burden very widely. The hon. Lady told us that the Bill was another...

Orders of the Day — National Health Service Contributions Bill (8 May 1957)

Sir Keith Joseph: I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman, but surely the immediate problem is that if we want the National Health Service to remain even at its present size we must raise £40 million now either by extra contributions or by extra taxes. It is all very well for me or for the hon. Gentleman to talk about the desirable future when a greater national product will permit lower taxes to produce a...

Orders of the Day — National Health Service Contributions Bill (8 May 1957)

Sir Keith Joseph: I must be being misunderstood. This country limps far behind both America and Russia in respect of the heavy burden that it puts on the people who make the wealth, the dynamos of mind, energy and personality in public enterprise or private enterprise who invent, administer, organise and run things. There is no party point in this; it is common to all hon. Members. May I now modify the rather...

Orders of the Day — National Health Service Contributions Bill (8 May 1957)

Sir Keith Joseph: I was interested in a reply of the Minister of Pensions, who pointed out that fully one-third of the people whose cases were ventilated in the Sunderland report were entitled to assistance— supplementary pensions, if they asked for them. I hope that they will now ask for them, or have already been put in touch with the proper authorities. I was referring to the condition of those who...

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Health: Health Services (Co-ordination) (3 Jun 1957)

If not, would he consider putting in force, or perhaps starting in one region to try them out, some of the ideas that have been suggested?

Oral Answers to Questions — Pensions and National Insurance: Retirement Pensioners (Information) (3 Jun 1957)

Sir Keith Joseph: asked the Minister of Pensions and National Insurance in how many cases local authority welfare departments have agreed with his Department for a circular from the welfare department to be included in the envelope containing the first pension issue book so as to inform those newly retired of the services available for them as has been done in the case of Salford.

Oral Answers to Questions — Pensions and National Insurance: Retirement Pensioners (Information) (3 Jun 1957)

Sir Keith Joseph: While thanking my right hon. Friend for that answer, may I ask whether he would not agree that, in view of the revelations from Sunderland and Salford, it is clear that a large number of old people do not appear to know their rights and that this form of cooperation with local authorities will be very useful?

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Committal to Borstal (Prison Detention) (6 Jun 1957)

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Committal to Borstal (Prison Detention) (6 Jun 1957)

Sir Keith Joseph: Whilst thanking my right hon. Friend for that reply and recognising the pressure on accommodation and the efforts to segregate these boys made by the prison authorities, especially in the prison which I visited, may I ask whether my right hon. Friend could assure the House that every effort will be made to keep these young Borstal boys isolated so far as practicable from the adult prisoners?...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Borstal Institutions (Average Detentions) (6 Jun 1957)

Sir Keith Joseph: asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what was the average length of detention in Borstal of any convenient comparable groups released in 1955 and 1956, respectively.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Borstal Institutions (Average Detentions) (6 Jun 1957)

Sir Keith Joseph: Will my right hon. Friend ask the Commissioners to do all they can to maintain this most welcome trend, both because of the pressure of accommodation and because of the Mannheim findings last year in the study of Borstal that short sentences are quite as effective in reducing recidivism as longer sentences?

Orders of the Day — National Health Service Contributions Bill (6 Jun 1957)

Sir Keith Joseph: Does the hon. Gentleman deny those facts which he has quoted from my speech?

Orders of the Day — National Health Service Contributions Bill (6 Jun 1957)

Sir Keith Joseph: I do not deny the statistics for Manchester, and I hope that the hon. Gentleman will not deny my statistics generally, because I can back them up in every detail. They are absolutely true for the whole national scene. I may be wrong in one resource, but I say that all the major resources of the National Health Service are more plentifully supplied now than they were in the past. Does the...

Disabled Persons (Rehabilitation) (7 Jun 1957)

Sir Keith Joseph: This week is a notable one for the health of this country, and, I think, for local authorities also, because in this week we have had the publication of the Percy Report on the Law relating to Mental Illness and Mental Deficiency, and now we are, I hope, about to hear Government policy on the Percy Report on the Rehabilitation, Training and Resettlement of Disabled Persons. Anyone...

Disabled Persons (Rehabilitation) (7 Jun 1957)

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: New Clause. — (Approval of Super Annuation and Retirement Bene Fits' Funds and Schemes.) (2 Jul 1957)

Sir Keith Joseph: I am glad that the proposal of this new Clause has given the Committee a chance to air this important matter, but I think that in what the hon. Member for Huddersfield, West (Mr. Wade) described as a very complex matter we should consider some of the implications of making transferability obligatory. Everyone has an interest in securing the maximum of transferability because it induces the...

Mental Illness and Mental Deficiency (Report) (8 Jul 1957)

Sir Keith Joseph: I am sure that the whole House will welcome the humane and constructive speech which the Home Secretary has just delivered, and the acceptance by the Government, expressed by him, of the need of legislation when consultations have occurred on what he has called the broad front covered by the Royal Commission's recommendations. Like other hon. Members who have spoken, I shall concentrate on...
