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

Sir Keith Joseph: When I was interrupted I was making the cryptic statement to the House, "Not only is there Percy but there is Piercy," and I feel that I should go back and explain what that succinct remark was intended to mean. On mental health we have had a debate which was enlivened, just before the last interruption, by a speech of great practical humanity by my right hon. Friend the Home Secretary, and...

Dentists (Ancillary Workers) (10 Jul 1957)

Sir Keith Joseph: I want to add only one word more of welcome for the Regulations, which go some way towards putting into effect one of the recommendations of the McNair Committee. We all recognise that there are not sufficient dentists in this country, even for the public demand that exists, and that the Committee stressed that the demand from the public is not high enough for a high standard of dental...

Dentists (Ancillary Workers) (10 Jul 1957)

Sir Keith Joseph: I was talking about the amount of conservation treatment given, and not about the quality.

Retirement Pensions (1 Aug 1957)

Sir Keith Joseph: We have heard a very responsible speech from the right hon. Member for Middlesbrough, East (Mr. Marquand)and I would not have wished to intrude a party matter if the hon. Member for Ince (Mr. T. Brown)had not contended that the present Government have attracted a great amount of correspondence on the subject of old-age pensions. If the hon. Member had held his office about six or seven...

John Willson Vickers (Attorney-General's Fiat) (1 Aug 1957)

Sir Keith Joseph: On a point of order. We are all very interested, Mr. Deputy-Speaker, to hear the opinions represented on the Opposition side of the House. In view of the possibility that my right hon. and learned Friend the Attorney-General will take the whole of the rest of the time, could I appeal for some back bench Members on the Government side to be heard?

Disabled Persons (13 Dec 1957)

Sir Keith Joseph: The hon. Gentleman will remember that the first recommendation of the Piercy Report tries to meet the very point he is making.

Disabled Persons (13 Dec 1957)

Sir Keith Joseph: I am sure that the whole House is grateful to the hon. Gentleman the Member for Lowestoft (Mr. Edward Evans) for raising this subject again today and dealing with it with so much sympathy. I should like also, to join with the hon. Gentleman the Member for Shoreditch and Finsbury (Mr. Collins) in recognising the presence of my right hon. Friend the Minister of Labour throughout this debate,...

Disabled Persons (13 Dec 1957)

Sir Keith Joseph: I must interrupt. That is a most unfair misrepresentation. I was pointing out the good practice of the best doctors.

Dock Labour Scheme (Devlin Report) (18 Dec 1957)

Sir Keith Joseph: To ask the Minister of Labour what conclusions he has reached from his consideration of the Devlin Report on the Dock Labour Scheme.

Dock Labour Scheme (Devlin Report) (18 Dec 1957)

Sir Keith Joseph: While thanking my right hon. Friend for that reply, and welcoming the acceptance of his decision by all concerned, and recognising the difficulties in the past history of this vital industry, may I ask whether he has reason to think, now that the life of this imaginative brain-child of Ernest Bevin is being renewed, the public can hope that a modern attitude on all sides will sweep through...

Economic Situation (23 Jan 1958)

Sir Keith Joseph: I am extremely interested in the hon. Member's argument and sympathetic to the objective of expansion, but does he think that, in the words of The Times this morning, we can with our very small reserves buy the world out of her tendency towards deflation?

Orders of the Day — Industrial Relations (6 Feb 1958)

Sir Keith Joseph: Sir Keith Joseph (Leeds, North-East)rose—

Orders of the Day — Industrial Relations (6 Feb 1958)

Sir Keith Joseph: The hon. Member has accused—

Old People (Welfare) (12 Feb 1958)

Sir Keith Joseph: I am glad to have the chance to echo what my hon. Friend has said and emphasise the part played by the family in social life. It may seem trite to emphasise the family in this way, but the family is still the major influence in the lives of the majority of our fellow countrymen. The author of the book on the study of Bethnal Green, to which my hon. Friend has referred, summed up his careful...

Civil Estimates, Supplementary Estimate, 1957–58: National Assistance Board (17 Feb 1958)

Sir Keith Joseph: It is always a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Sowerby (Mr. Houghton). He has made an exceptionally convincing, strong and cogent speech. I apologise to my right hon. Friend and to hon. Gentlemen and hon. Ladies on both sides of the Committee for not having been here for the first part of the debate. I have heard the last three or four speeches. I regret that I was unavoidably absent...

Civil Estimates, Supplementary Estimate, 1957–58: National Assistance Board (17 Feb 1958)

Sir Keith Joseph: Gladly; but there are many councils which have not yet, despite all the urging, established differential rent schemes.

Civil Estimates, Supplementary Estimate, 1957–58: National Assistance Board (17 Feb 1958)

Sir Keith Joseph: Indeed; I am not questioning that. It is to the councils that I am venturing to speak at the moment. I know that my right hon. Friend does not control them. I agree with the hon. Member for Itchen (Dr. King), who spoke of the very sad effects that the Rent Act must have on those whose income puts them just above the National Assistance Board scale. I realise that we cannot discuss their...

Civil Estimates, Supplementary Estimate, 1957–58: National Assistance Board (17 Feb 1958)

Sir Keith Joseph: Indeed no. I said this was part of the dilemma. We have to judge the best compromise. The hon. Member for Sowerby questioned the propriety of "blanketing-in" the tens of thousands of people who cannot take part in the present insurance scheme. He said he was sorry for them and that they had been hurt by the falling value of money, but he questioned the propriety of blanketing them in,...

Civil Estimates, Supplementary Estimate, 1957–58: National Assistance Board (17 Feb 1958)

Sir Keith Joseph: I accept what the hon. Gentleman said. I now go on to make two points of my own. First, I would draw attention to a very admirable book called "Family Life in Bethnal Green" which has just been written by Mr. Peter Townsend. The book throws a good deal of very welcome light on the allegation that many people refuse and will not draw their supplementary pension. We hear it bandied about on...

Civil Estimates, Supplementary Estimate, 1957–58: National Assistance Board (17 Feb 1958)

Sir Keith Joseph: Will the hon. Member meet the point I made about a differential rent scheme? Does he think it right that a council should charge the same rent to all its tenants?
