Orders of the Day — Budget Statement (12 Nov 1964)

Mr Ken Lomas: Like the previous three speakers, I crave the indulgence of the Committee for my maiden speech. It is not my intention to follow the hon. Member for Bebington (Mr. Howe) into the arguments on the justification or not of the means test, because this is supposed to be a non-controversial contribution. I cannot claim to bring to the Committee or to the House of Commons any great high academic...

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

Mr Ken Lomas: asked the Minister of Health what is the percentage and number of private pay beds in the hospitals under his control; and whether, in view of the shortage of hospital beds, he will take steps to reduce this figure.

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

Mr Ken Lomas: While being grateful for my right hon. Friend's assurance that he is going to review this policy, might I ask him to bear in mind that many people who are in urgent need of treatment are being compelled to wait while other people, who have the money, are able to buy their way into hospital? Is he aware that many hon. Members on this side of the House consider it quite wrong that one should...

Defence (Navy) Estimates, 1965–66: Navy Estimates (11 Mar 1965)

Mr Ken Lomas: I am grateful for the opportunity to speak for the first time on the Navy Estimates. I do so with a certain amount of trepidation, because I am conscious of being surrounded by enough gold braid of one kind and another to make a gold plate and the only real qualification or personal connection with the Navy which I have is 20 years ago when I managed to rise to the dizzy heights of sergeant...

Defence (Navy) Estimates, 1965–66: Navy Estimates (11 Mar 1965)

Mr Ken Lomas: I am indeed very conscious of that. What I am suggesting is that there should be a much closer liaison between all Commonwealth nations, rather than each acting as independent forces. This would not be in any way an infringment of our national sovereignty, certainly no more than having troops in Germany, or V-bombers east of Suez, or making a contribution to an Atlantic nuclear force. I was...

Orders of the Day — National Health Service (Doctors' Pay and Conditions (17 Mar 1965)

Mr Ken Lomas: I will follow the hon. and gallant Member for Ripon (Sir M. Stodart-Scott) into a number of the rather queer excursions he made into the subject of doctors' pay and the Health Service. The figures he quoted for the increase in the number of prescriptions being issued by doctors were obviously such that he could not substantiate them, at least not to this Committee. Unless the hon. and...

Orders of the Day — National Health Service (Doctors' Pay and Conditions (17 Mar 1965)

Mr Ken Lomas: If that is so, there must be a considerable number of doctors earning far in excess of £4,500. The idea of the Review Body was to ensure that doctors in need of help would receive it. The way the medical profession has been behaving in the last few months has been such that, if they were trade unionists on the shop floor or elsewhere, they would have been denounced as irresponsible. Indeed,...

Orders of the Day — National Health Service (Doctors' Pay and Conditions (17 Mar 1965)

Mr Ken Lomas: If the members of any trade union had received a 14 per cent. increase in pay during the last three years and had violated the agreement within that period, there would have been a tremendous outcry by hon. Members opposite. Not only are these doctors to whom I have referred the Oliver Twists of the Service. They are almost the Dick Turpins. They are pointing a gun at the Minister's head....

Orders of the Day — National Health Service (Doctors' Pay and Conditions (17 Mar 1965)

Mr Ken Lomas: That is true. We know that it was concocted in a short space of time in a country retreat or elsewhere.

Orders of the Day — National Health Service (Doctors' Pay and Conditions (17 Mar 1965)

Mr Ken Lomas: I accept the charter as it stands as being the eventual goal towards which we should move. Certainly, the abolition of certification is an extremely good thing. The doctors recommend the setting up of an independent corporation to be financed from public sources. They say that we should lend public money for improvements, to acquire surgery premises, to build and lease purpose-built...

Orders of the Day — National Health Service (Doctors' Pay and Conditions (17 Mar 1965)

Mr Ken Lomas: And the doctors would be made into a stronger trade union. The doctors provide a useful and valuable service, and we should try to extend the system of group practices and the rota system. We must ensure that the service they offer is high, and that they have the right facilities with good pay and conditions. But this can only be done on the basis of a salaried service, and I ask the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Pensions and National Insurance: Income Guarantee (22 Mar 1965)

Mr Ken Lomas: asked the Minister of Pensions and National Insurance if she will give an assurance that a minimum income guarantee will be introduced in the lifetime of this Parliament.

Oral Answers to Questions — Pensions and National Insurance: Income Guarantee (22 Mar 1965)

Mr Ken Lomas: I did not doubt for a moment what the answer would be, but is my hon. Friend aware that the assurance that the matter is being worked on will give great satisfaction to those who voted Labour at the last election in the certain knowledge that this Government would keep their election pledges, and will she give some kind of undertaking that the persons who are at present outside the insurance...

Orders of the Day — Public Health (Notification of Births) Bill (9 Apr 1965)

Mr Ken Lomas: I beg to move, That the Bill be now read a Second time. I formally ask the House to accept the Bill. It is entirely non-controversial and I believe that it would be acceptable to both sides of the House and prove a benefit to local health authorities and the Ministry of Health.

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Purchase Tax (4 May 1965)

Mr Ken Lomas: asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will allow tax relief where musical instruments are purchased for use in schools.

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Purchase Tax (4 May 1965)

Mr Ken Lomas: Is my hon. and learned Friend aware that there is a tax relief on musical instruments in many other countries, including the United States of America? Is he further aware that, provided the necessary safeguards are taken to stop abuses, this is something which should be encouraged in schools? I earnestly ask him to bear in mind that this could be done along the lines of the personal export...

Oral Answers to Questions — Companies (Political Contributions) (4 May 1965)

Mr Ken Lomas: asked the Prime Minister when he will introduce legislation to compel political parties to disclose their source of income.

Oral Answers to Questions — Companies (Political Contributions) (4 May 1965)

Mr Ken Lomas: I thank my right hon. Friend for that reply, but I hope that he is aware that hon. Members on this side of the House are looking forward, as the whole nation must be, to discovering the names and details of the paymasters of the Tory Party.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Huddersfield College of Technology (Department of Music) (6 May 1965)

Mr Ken Lomas: asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he is aware of the need for a college of music for the Yorkshire area; and, in view of the valuable work already being done by the Department of Music at the Huddersfield College of Technology, if he will seek to develop this department as a regional college of music centred on Huddersfield.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Huddersfield College of Technology (Department of Music) (6 May 1965)

Mr Ken Lomas: Is my hon. Friend aware—I am sure that he is—that as long ago as 1958 the Yorkshire Council for Further Education recognised this to be a regional college of music and, in the interests of the people in the Yorkshire region who are anxious to obtain a musical education, will he further consider the suggestions made in the Question?
