Orders of the Day — Prices and Incomes Bill: Clause 1 (25 Jun 1968)

Mr Ken Lomas: My hon. Friend the Member for Darlington (Mr. Ted Fletcher) made the point that he could not give a damn what the Opposition did tonight. Of course he could give a damn, because this is why some of my hon. Friends have put down the Amendment. They want to defeat the Government and therefore they want Tory support. [Interruption.] They have my support when I think that Government policy is wrong.

Orders of the Day — Prices and Incomes Bill: Clause 1 (25 Jun 1968)

Mr Ken Lomas: That was a completely different issue.

Orders of the Day — Prices and Incomes Bill: Clause 1 (25 Jun 1968)

Mr Ken Lomas: The objective of the prices and incomes policy is to protect the lower-paid worker. [Interruption.]

Orders of the Day — Prices and Incomes Bill: Clause 1 (25 Jun 1968)

Mr Ken Lomas: It is also to try and control the mavericks who exist in unions as much as in big business. No one from either side of the House has yet told me how it is possible to control people who are not prepared to accept the T.U.C.'s voluntary policy. That is the crucial issue. The Government have not used the power it was given to imprison trade unionists since the 1966 Act was passed. I remember...

Orders of the Day — Prices and Incomes Bill: Clause 1 (25 Jun 1968)

Mr Ken Lomas: I thought for a moment I was back on the Countryside Bill. Of course one can include agricultural workers among the lower paid. The objective of the Government's policy is to ensure that those at the bottom of the scale are lifted up. This is what my union, the National Union of Public Employees, has recognised. It realised the value of the Prices and Incomes Board as far as the ancillary...

Orders of the Day — Prices and Incomes Bill: Clause 1 (25 Jun 1968)

Mr Ken Lomas: Will my hon. Friend explain what would be the consequence if a trade union went beyond what had been agreed with the T.U.C. vetting committee or settled in any other voluntary agreement? If it went beyond that, what action would he suggest should be taken in the interests of the people below those militant individuals?

Orders of the Day — Prices and Incomes Bill: Clause 1 (25 Jun 1968)

Mr Ken Lomas: I now understand why the Conservative Party will join some of my hon. Friends in the Lobby. They all believe in a free-for-all society.

Orders of the Day — Prices and Incomes Bill: Clause 5 (26 Jun 1968)

Mr Ken Lomas: Is it possible to draw my hon. Friend's attention to the speech of the Under Secretary in Committee? This is where my hon. Friend is chasing shadows. The Under Secretary said: 12 per cent. of the entire agricultural industry is on this minimum rate. The other 88 per cent. are not getting the minimum— currently 11 guineas or slightly more. The other 88 per cent. are getting more than that."...

Orders of the Day — Prices and Incomes Bill: Clause 5 (26 Jun 1968)

Mr Ken Lomas: On a point of order. We are talking about Clause 5, which is specifically related to agriculture.

Orders of the Day — Prices and Incomes Bill: Clause 5 (26 Jun 1968)

Mr Ken Lomas: I am most grateful to my hon. Friend for giving way. I apologise if I am under any misapprehension on agricultural wages. May I say to him that I agree that £12 a week is a low wage, but under the criteria in the Bill and in the White Paper surely these people are allowed to get through? I do not see what he is arguing about.

Orders of the Day — Schedule 2 (27 Jun 1968)

Mr Ken Lomas: Mr. Kenneth Lomas (Huddersfield, West)rose—

Orders of the Day — Schedule 2 (27 Jun 1968)

Mr Ken Lomas: My feelings about this have been expressed many times. I believe that the over-riding necessity is to get the country's economy right, and the Bill is a vital part of that process. Therefore, the penal Clauses, or perhaps I should say the long stop-powers which the Government have to stop people taking more than they are entitled to are necessary. I also believe that once the economy is...

Nurses and Midwives (Pay) (1 Jul 1968)

Mr Ken Lomas: When I entered the Chamber I made two promises to myself. The first was to be brief—a promise I intend to honour. The second was—for a change— not to be political. But the speech of the hon. Lady the Member for Birmingham, Edgbaston (Mrs. Knight) sorely tempts me to break that promise because it seemed to me to accuse hon. Members on this side of the House of not holding an examination...

Municipal Busmen (Dispute) (25 Jul 1968)

Mr Ken Lomas: Mr. Lomas (by Private Notice) asked the First Secretary of State and Secretary of State for Employment and Productivity whether she will make a statement on the breakdown of talks in the present dispute concerning municipal busmen.

Municipal Busmen (Dispute) (25 Jul 1968)

Mr Ken Lomas: May I assure my right hon. Friend that her statement will be received in many quarters of the House with a great deal of satisfaction? I hope that as much publicity as possible will be given to it. I wish to ask my right hon. Friend two questions. Do I understand from the statement that the £1 a week increase can be paid at once to all municipal busmen covered by the agreement as soon as a...

Highway Code (18 Nov 1968)

Mr Ken Lomas: I welcome the new Highway Code. Although I could point to faults in it by going through it with a tooth-comb, but it must be said that it is high time that we had a new code giving a sense of purpose and direction to road users. I want to draw special attention to Rule 132, which concerns cyclists. I have received a tremendous amount of correspondence from such organisations as the...

Highway Code (18 Nov 1968)

Mr Ken Lomas: I recall my hon. Friend's thoughts to my own remarks: How busy is busy? How narrow is narrow? How long is long?

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Prescription Charges (2 Dec 1968)

Mr Ken Lomas: asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will take steps to designate all patients who need hospital treatment as chronic sick and exempt them from prescription charges.

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Prescription Charges (2 Dec 1968)

Mr Ken Lomas: Does the Minister not appreciate that prescription charges are completely against the principle of a health service free for all in time of need, in which we believe? Does he realise that hon. Members on this side of the House believe that people who need hospital treatment are being penalised—especially those on low wages? Cannot something be done about this?

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Prescription Charges (2 Dec 1968)

Mr Ken Lomas: asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what estimate he has made of the cost of additional staff in hospitals needed for the collection of prescription charges and of the cost of the additional clerical and bookkeeping work involved; and if this sum will be taken into consideration when he assesses the benefit to the Exchequer accruing from these charges.
