Rising Prices (11 May 1965)

Mr Ken Lomas: I have been a Member of Parliament only six months, but I have repeatedly learned in that time that I have been right in believing during my life in the trade union and Labour movement that right hon. and hon. Members opposite do not know how the other half lives. They cannot understand what it is like for people on £12 or less a week to keep wife and family together. We have had an example...

Rising Prices (11 May 1965)

Mr Ken Lomas: The hon. Member talked about what he called "creeping pregnancy" and referred to the wages which were allowed to slip through the incomes policy. The hon. Member must understand that when wages are as low as £9, £10, or £11 a week we are not only concerned as a Labour Party and a Labour Government with an incomes policy, but with social justice. It is elementary justice that these people...

Rising Prices (11 May 1965)

Mr Ken Lomas: This is playing with words again. Our share of the world markets decreased during the time when the Conservative Party was in power. I was saying that the Conservative policy of allowing prices to rise and doing very little about it meant that those who could least afford it were affected most. When we came to power, therefore, we decided that, as a matter of social justice and priority, we...

Public Health (Notification of Births) Bill (18 Jun 1965)

Mr Ken Lomas: I beg to move, That the Bill be read the Third time. Like the previous Bill this is an entirely non-controversial Measure. It had a formal Second Reading on 9th April and the Committee stage was dispensed with in less than ten minutes. I am sure that the House will appreciate, therefore, that I do not intend to detain it very long but it is right and proper to explain the purpose of the...

Oral Answers to Questions — China (United Nations Representation) (21 Jun 1965)

Mr Ken Lomas: asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what action has been taken by Her Majesty's Government since October, 1964 to secure the admission of China to the United Nations.

Oral Answers to Questions — China (United Nations Representation) (21 Jun 1965)

Mr Ken Lomas: Is my hon. Friend aware that there is a growing feeling that it is not sufficient merely to be in support of the entry of China into the United Nations, but a matter of supreme importance that this country should make every effort to try to persuade other nations which have so far sought to exclude that part of the world from the United Nations to take a different view, and to do its very...

Oral Answers to Questions — Vietnam (21 Jun 1965)

Mr Ken Lomas: asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he will use the offices of the United Nations in seeking a solution to the situation in Vietnam.

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Labour: Health and Local Government Employees (Factories Acts) (26 Jul 1965)

Mr Ken Lomas: asked the Minister of Labour when he intends to introduce legislation to extend the Factories Acts to include Health Service and local government employees.

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Labour: Health and Local Government Employees (Factories Acts) (26 Jul 1965)

Mr Ken Lomas: Is my hon. Friend aware that that is a most disappointing reply inasmuch as in the Health Service, for example, laundry workers are covered but those in boiler-houses are not, and people who serve meals to the staff are covered, while those who serve them to the patients are not? Ought not people

Orders of the Day — Labour Party (Election Pledges) (29 Jul 1965)

Mr Ken Lomas: rose—

Orders of the Day — Labour Party (Election Pledges) (29 Jul 1965)

Mr Ken Lomas: Perhaps the hon. and gallant Member will concede the point that we still have another four years to go? These are only the first 12 months.

Orders of the Day — Labour Party (Election Pledges) (29 Jul 1965)

Mr Ken Lomas: It is not my intention to follow what the hon. and gallant Member for Lewes (Sir T. Beamish) has said, because so much of it is based on the assmption that the Government who were returned nine or ten months ago should in that time have implemented a programme which was designed for five years. It must be emphasised that the Government have been in power for only nine or ten months, one-sixth...

Orders of the Day — Labour Party (Election Pledges) (29 Jul 1965)

Mr Ken Lomas: Yes, I will. First, a report on the state of the schools was not published until after the election, because the Conservatives were frightened of the consequences. Secondly, they did not disclose the terrible financial situation into which we were moving. Thirdly, the Conservatives concealed the fact that the Post Office had a deficit of £100 million. I could give many more examples. The...

Oral Answers to Questions — Hospitals: Pay Beds (1 Nov 1965)

Mr Ken Lomas: asked the Minister of Health whether he has completed his review of his policy on pay beds; and if he will make a statement.

Oral Answers to Questions — Hospitals: Pay Beds (1 Nov 1965)

Mr Ken Lomas: Will my right hon. Friend bear in mind in the course of his consideration of the review of pay beds that according to figures issued in the Annual Report of the Ministry of Health for 1964 there was an average daily number of 5,449 Section 5 pay beds available and in the course of the year the average daily number in use was only 2,892? Is it not wrong that only 53 per cent. of the pay beds...

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Health: Contaminated Corned Beef (1 Nov 1965)

Mr Ken Lomas: asked the Minister of Health whether he has reached a decision on the proposal that hitherto suspected canned meat should be re-processed and released by the firms at present holding it and sold for human consumption; and if he will make a statement.

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Health: Contaminated Corned Beef (1 Nov 1965)

Mr Ken Lomas: In the reply to the right hon. Member for Grantham (Mr. Godber) on 27th October, my hon. Friend stated that these tins had left the country. What exactly does "left the country" mean? Did they leave by themselves, were they dumped in the river, or were they re-exported?

Orders of the Day — Queen's Speech: Land Commission and Housing (11 Nov 1965)

Mr Ken Lomas: I am grateful for having caught your eye, Mr. Deputy Speaker. I feel like an adventurous young man who has been sitting here for two and a half days waiting to catch the eye of a virtuous maiden, and who now having received the nod proceeds to take advantage of it. I hasten to assure the House that the only advantage that I intend to take is slightly to widen the scope of the debate, for...

Orders of the Day — Queen's Speech: Land Commission and Housing (11 Nov 1965)

Mr Ken Lomas: I have not mentioned steel, but I intend to do so because some of my colleagues and I were sponsors of an Amendment to the Gracious Speech which, I suppose, for all kinds of reasons, will not be called. In fairness to the 50-odd Members who signed the Amendment last night, it is only fitting that it should be made clear that our view on steel is quite simple. We believe, as the Prime Minister...

Oral Answers to Questions — Economic Affairs: Yorkshire and Humberside Region (Study) (25 Nov 1965)
