Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (4 Apr 1977)

Mr Ken Lomas: I have a great affection for the right hon. Gentleman. He is a very honest man. He may not have spelled out where the cuts would take place, but we know where the increases would take place—on defence, for example. The Conservatives wish to be friends to all men. They say that they believe in devolution, then vote against it; they say that they believe in the Trade Union and Labour...

Industry (Financial Assistance) (27 Jun 1977)

Mr Ken Lomas: I think that far too much has been made of Merseyside. Yorkshire has suffered considerably. I take the view that we are not getting a sufficient supply of the resources that the Government could provide. We are sick and tired of hearing Merseyside mentioned in every debate. Yorkshire is almost as big as Scotland and has a population of almost the same size, and we are entitled to similar...

Orders of the Day — Clause 43: Persons Domiciled in Channel Islands or Isle of Man (25 Jul 1977)

Mr Ken Lomas: On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. If I may say so, the hon. and learned Member for Dover and Deal (Mr. Rees) has played silly devils with the House tonight. If he is not prepared to put—

Orders of the Day — Scotland Bill (22 Feb 1978)

Mr Ken Lomas: I have not taken part in the debates on devolution and have not voted at any stage because the Bill is wrong, misguided and ill-conceived. It is a non-sense that we should reach a point where the House is faced with the in-built fact that 40 per cent. of the Scottish electorate must decide. Why do we not pass the Bill and see whether 40 per cent. of the Scottish electorate want this business?...

Orders of the Day — Scotland Bill (22 Feb 1978)

Mr Ken Lomas: I want to ask a question of my hon. Friend. If the House says tonight that this Bill should be passed and the Scottish people then say "No" that will be the end of it. If my hon. Friend is arguing for a "No" vote, now, he is simply inviting the possibility of this subject being introduced into the next Session of Parliament. Why not get rid of it now—vote "Yes" tonight and leave it to the...

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation: Amendment of the Law (11 Apr 1978)

Mr Ken Lomas: I hope that the hon. Member for Chichester (Mr. Nelson) will forgive me if I do not discuss much of what he has said. I have limited myself to a maximum of 12 minutes and I shall try to confine my remarks to that time. As one who is not seeking re-election, I find it possible to look at Budgets with a different and detached view from those who will be facing the hustings in six, 12 or even...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Charge of Income Tax for 1978–79 (8 May 1978)

Mr Ken Lomas: There is an Early-Day Motion drawing attention to the need to increase the death grant. In my constituency, the cost of a funeral is given by the funeral directors as between £200 and £250. It seems incumbent upon the Government rapidly to increase the death grant. It is useless at the moment, especially for elderly people who need help. I hope that the Government will take a sympathetic...
