Amendment of the Law (3 May 1966)

Mr Ken Lomas: May I intervene? If a deficit of £800 million is not a mess, what is? The fact is that during the period that hon. Members opposite were in office production increased by only 2·3 per cent.

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Tinned Foods (Date Stamping) (5 May 1966)

Mr Ken Lomas: Is my right hon. Friend aware that I am most grateful for that long and detailed reply, but that I still think that it is disappointing? I should be grateful if he would take note of the fact that housewives and consumers in general are entitled to this protection. Would he not look at the matter again and see what can be done?

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Labour: Part-time Workers (20 Jun 1966)

Mr Ken Lomas: asked the Minister of Labour if he is aware of the growing practice on the part of provident clothing and supply companies, check traders, and other similar firms, of ending their present contract of employment with their part-time workers and treating these people as self-employed with the obvious intent of terminating their responsibilities under the National Insurance Act, the Redundancy...

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Labour: Part-time Workers (20 Jun 1966)

Mr Ken Lomas: While expressing my thanks for the investigations that have been made, may I ask whether my hon. Friend is aware that many of these firms which are indulging in this practice are escaping their liabilities under the Selective Employment Tax which will be coming into operation in October? Is she aware further that, surely, in the interests of the nation, of the employee and of the consumer, it...

Orders of the Day — National Insurance (Further Provisions) Bill (1 Jul 1966)

Mr Ken Lomas: The more I sit on the Government side of the House, the more I marvel at the hypocrisy of hon. Members on the benches opposite; the more I am astounded that they suddenly find themselves in complete disagreement with statements that they made between 1951 and 1964. The Opposition tell us of heart-rending stories, about which they knew throughout the whole period when they were the...

Orders of the Day — National Insurance (Further Provisions) Bill (1 Jul 1966)

Mr Ken Lomas: I still think that the hon. Gentleman should have done. It is all right the hon. Gentleman saying that his party put something into their election manifesto——

Orders of the Day — National Insurance (Further Provisions) Bill (1 Jul 1966)

Mr Ken Lomas: I will not give way. There is no point in promising something when one knows that one is not likely to be called upon to fulfil a promise. One can put what one likes into one's manifesto if it is known that it will never be carried out.

Orders of the Day — National Insurance (Further Provisions) Bill (1 Jul 1966)

Mr Ken Lomas: That is a completely unworthy remark of the hon Member. I will give way willingly.

Orders of the Day — National Insurance (Further Provisions) Bill (1 Jul 1966)

Mr Ken Lomas: All that I will say about that intervention, which developed into a speech, is that I was given some information in a Written Answer by the Ministry of Pensions and National Insurance, showing that the percentage of the National Insurance benefit to the average wage was about 25 per cent. to 28 per cent. under the Conservatives, whereas since October, 1964, with the new measures which we have...

Orders of the Day — National Insurance (Further Provisions) Bill (1 Jul 1966)

Mr Ken Lomas: I was not in the House during all of those thirteen years—[HON. MEMBERS: "Quite."]—more is the pity—but I have no doubt that my hon. Friends certainly drew the attention of the House to the sufferings of people who had been so long ignored by the Conservative Party. The Bill refers to the non-pensioner—people over pensionable age when the 1948 Act began. There are three main groups...

Orders of the Day — National Insurance (Further Provisions) Bill (1 Jul 1966)

Mr Ken Lomas: No, I will not give way. Group 2 is composed of people who chose not to become special voluntary contributors under a scheme introduced in 1938-These people had the opportunity to become insured. [An HON. MEMBER: "No."] Yes, they did, and they chose not to become insured. These are the people whom, we are told, should have the advantage of the Bill. There were those unable to be insured...

Orders of the Day — National Insurance (Further Provisions) Bill (1 Jul 1966)

Mr Ken Lomas: Yes, it used to. What we are asking now is why should these people who, through hon. Members opposite are calling for a pension, be granted one when many hundreds of thousands of people have struggled to find the stamp money from a meagre wage, given by people represented by hon. Members opposite, in order to keep themselves in benefit?

Orders of the Day — National Insurance (Further Provisions) Bill (1 Jul 1966)

Mr Ken Lomas: That underlines what I was saying. I was reading a copy of the debate in the other place recently, in which a noble Lord was recalling the time of the 1926 General Strike, when he and others were in dispute, and they became in arrears with their National Insurance contributions. When they were given a bill for the arrears of contributions, they could not pay it because the wages were so low...

Orders of the Day — National Insurance (Further Provisions) Bill (1 Jul 1966)

Mr Ken Lomas: We cannot measure human life, happiness and decency in terms of cost. I am not prepared to argue that the cost of an old person living decently must be measured against a particular item I am more concerned with people and that they should enjoy a decent standard of living and the full fruits of their labour rather than that they should have to eke out a miserable existence, which they would...

Orders of the Day — National Insurance (Further Provisions) Bill (1 Jul 1966)

Oral Answers to Questions — Milk (Half-Pint Bottles) (20 Jul 1966)

Mr Ken Lomas: asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will introduce legislation compelling milk retailers to provide half-pint bottles for milk, in view of the number of retired persons and individuals living on their own who have no means of storing milk overnight.

Oral Answers to Questions — Milk (Half-Pint Bottles) (20 Jul 1966)

Mr Ken Lomas: Is my hon. Friend aware that the present system creates a great wastage of milk and also creates a wastage of money? Does he not think that, in the interests of those living on low fixed incomes and of people having to live on their own, this legislation is long overdue?

Orders of the Day — Prices and Incomes Bill: Clause 25. — (General Provisions as to Operation of Part Iv.) (9 Aug 1966)

Mr Ken Lomas: I am grateful for the opportunity to intervene in what appears to be a three-cornered fight between the Official Opposition on the benches opposite, the unofficial opposition on this side of the House and the Government. It is time something was said in support of the Government and of the policies they are seeking to pursue. I reluctantly accept the necessity—and it is with a heavy heart...

Oral Answers to Questions — China (United Nations Representation) (7 Nov 1966)

Mr Ken Lomas: asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what further action he proposes to take to secure the admission of the Republic of China to the United Nations.
