Orders of the Day — PARLIAMENT (No. 2) BILL: Loss of Voting Right by Non-Attendance (1 Apr 1969)

Mr Ken Lomas: Is my hon. Friend saying that we should have half-time members of the other House on full-time pay and also that, under the Bill—I am very grateful for his lucid explanation of it—we should have double-time Members on half-pay? I am sure that, as a trade unionist, he would be very much against this. I wonder whether he could solve the problem.

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Prescription Charges (Exemption Claims) (14 Apr 1969)

Mr Ken Lomas: asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what is the number of clerical grade officers and senior officers employed by the Huddersfield Executive Council to check the entitlement to exemption from prescription charges; what is their estimated annual cost; what was the number of prescriptions checked between September 1968 and January 1969; what was the number of patients found not to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Prescription Charges (Exemption Claims) (14 Apr 1969)

Mr Ken Lomas: Is my right hon. Friend not aware that we should not have given him permission to answer all these Questions together because we are not in possession of the facts? But would he say how this accords with the speeches and statements made by himself, the Prime Minister and the Minister of Health at the time on this subject? Is it worth the candle to do this for 2s. 6d?

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Venereal Disease (Prescription Charges) (14 Apr 1969)

Mr Ken Lomas: asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will introduce amending legislation to the National Health Service Act, 1952 to remove the exemption from the payment of prescription charges from those persons suffering from venereal disease.

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Venereal Disease (Prescription Charges) (14 Apr 1969)

Mr Ken Lomas: Is my right hon. Friend aware that, while I recognise that the treatment of venereal disease is a social necessity, many of my constituents are asking—in fact, they have written to me—why people who contract venereal disease "through pleasure" should be exempt from payment, while persons who contract arthritis as a result of work should have to pay? This has made nonsense of the system of...

Orders of the Day — Amendment of the Law (15 Apr 1969)

Mr Ken Lomas: The hon. Member for Kidderminster (Sir T. Brinton) argued his case authoritatively, and was well worth listening to, especially about an added-value tax, which could well be considered. All the same, I trust he will forgive me if I do not shed any tears about Corporation Tax being increased to 45 per cent. I welcome this, but I am prepared to view with a sympathetic eye the feelings expressed...

Orders of the Day — Amendment of the Law (15 Apr 1969)

Mr Ken Lomas: No, I must apologise. I will certainly do so, although the hon. Member is not keen on notifying hon. Members on this side when he makes scathing remarks about them, and he will be able to read my remarks in HANSARD. If there had to be an increase, it is right that it should be on petrol, since the user of the road, the man who takes his family for an outing in his car, or uses it for his job,...

Orders of the Day — Amendment of the Law (15 Apr 1969)

Mr Ken Lomas: There are a number of comments which I could make, but I am sure that Mr. Speaker would rule me out of order if I attempted to follow that point. I supported the policy because I believed that it was in the interests of the lower-paid workers, especially those in my own union. I believed that members of the National Union of Public Employees would benefit by a prices and incomes policy, and I...

Orders of the Day — Amendment of the Law (15 Apr 1969)

Mr Ken Lomas: Among the 11 million there were a great many people working in local authorities and the National Health Service. It is important for the Government to keep control of the situation, and the Chancellor anticipated what I intended to say. Before I came into the Chamber, I made a few rough notes, one of which was to the effect that the Government, in the light of the current situation, should...

Orders of the Day — Amendment of the Law (15 Apr 1969)

Mr Ken Lomas: I am grateful for that indication, Mr. Speaker. It has been argued from this side of the House that the State is intervening in industrial affairs. What is not understood is that the "State" is the "people", and that the people as a whole have a right to be considered in these matters. They should not be used, as they have been used in some strikes, for politically motivated purposes ...

Orders of the Day — Nurses (Pay-as-You-Eat Scheme) (24 Apr 1969)

Mr Ken Lomas: May I, on behalf of the National Union of Public Employees, which recruits many nurses, tell the House that the union has said that if any hospital authority overcharges nurses it will take the most militant action against that authority? Does my hon. Friend agree that, rather than join breakaway unions, the best interests of the nurses would be served by their joining the appropriate trade...

Orders of the Day — Nurses (Pay-as-You-Eat Scheme) (24 Apr 1969)

Mr Ken Lomas: I am grateful for the opportunity to say a few words on behalf of the nurses who are enrolled in my union, the National Union of Public Employees. I am glad that, from what has been said, it would appear that, from now on, nurses will not have to pay more for meals than the scale laid down by the Whitley Council Agreement. It would seem that the Department has accepted its responsibilities...

Spectacle Lenses and Dentures (Charges) (5 May 1969)

Mr Ken Lomas: Is my right hon. Friend aware that his statement will be described as naive, stupid, or courageous in the local elections this week, and that I regard it as naive and stupid? It is in direct violation of every principle of the Labour Party when we said that we would have a Health Service free of charge in time of need.

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment and Productivity: Wages Councils (22 May 1969)

Mr Ken Lomas: asked the Secretary of State for Employment and Productivity what consultation she has had about the wages council's proposals of the Royal Commission on Trade Unions; and if she will make a statement.

Prayers: Amusement Arcades (22 Jul 1969)

Mr Ken Lomas: With your permission, Mr. Speaker, and that of the House, I wish to present a Petition, signed by 3,340 constituents of the County Borough of Huddersfield and the Urban District of Kirkburton, who are concerned about the growth of amusement arcades and the urgent need for greater control. The Petitioners pray that Her Majesty's Government do three things: One, to introduce legislation to...

CALDERDALE WATER BILL (By Order) (29 Jan 1970)

Mr Ken Lomas: I begin by saying how much I agree with part of what the right hon. Member for Thirsk and Malton (Mr. Turton) said about the urgent need for this House to give serious consideration to a national water policy. That is absolutely crucial and vital, but here we are dealing with an immediate problem which will affect a tremendous number of people for the next three or four years. My hon. Friend...

CALDERDALE WATER BILL (By Order) (29 Jan 1970)

Mr Ken Lomas: I accept my right hon. Friend's point, but I am assured that that part of the valley would not be affected. My right hon. Friend said that the only reason for the Bill and the creation of the dam was the exporting of water. We must abandon such attitudes. Areas in the West Riding have supplied other areas, not with water—a natural asset—but with the coal that their people dug from the...

Transport (Flockton by-Pass) (17 Feb 1970)

Mr Ken Lomas: I endorse what my hon. Friend the Member for Huddersfield, East (Mr. J. P. W. Mallalieu) has said. Although Flockton is not within my constituency, it nevertheless affects a tremendous number of people in my constituency. I place on record a letter which I received from the Town Clerk of Huddersfield and which emphasises what my hon. Friend has said: You will recall that I wrote to you in...

Transport (Flockton by-Pass) (17 Feb 1970)

Mr Ken Lomas: Is not my hon. Friend aware that the scheme has been put forward for the last five years and that the arguments in favour of a by-pass have been advanced not only by Huddersfield County Borough Council but by the West Riding County Council, that they have asked for a by-pass at Flockton every year since 1965 and that they await only the sanction of the Ministry? Will he not take action and do...

Orders of the Day — National Health Service (Future Structure) (23 Mar 1970)

Mr Ken Lomas: It is with great pleasure that I follow the right hon. Gentleman the Member for Reigate (Sir J. Vaughan-Morgan), who has made a very thoughtful and interesting contribution to the debate. My pleasure is redoubled because, not many months ago, we followed each other around the South Pacific area when we had the opportunity to look at hospitals in Samoa, Fiji and Tonga. Thank goodness, Tonga is...
