Orders of the Day — Amendment of the Law (15 Apr 1969)

Mr Ken Lomas: Among the 11 million there were a great many people working in local authorities and the National Health Service. It is important for the Government to keep control of the situation, and the Chancellor anticipated what I intended to say. Before I came into the Chamber, I made a few rough notes, one of which was to the effect that the Government, in the light of the current situation, should...

Orders of the Day — Amendment of the Law (15 Apr 1969)

Mr Ken Lomas: I am grateful for that indication, Mr. Speaker. It has been argued from this side of the House that the State is intervening in industrial affairs. What is not understood is that the "State" is the "people", and that the people as a whole have a right to be considered in these matters. They should not be used, as they have been used in some strikes, for politically motivated purposes ...

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Prescription Charges (Exemption Claims) (14 Apr 1969)

Mr Ken Lomas: asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what is the number of clerical grade officers and senior officers employed by the Huddersfield Executive Council to check the entitlement to exemption from prescription charges; what is their estimated annual cost; what was the number of prescriptions checked between September 1968 and January 1969; what was the number of patients found not to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Prescription Charges (Exemption Claims) (14 Apr 1969)

Mr Ken Lomas: Is my right hon. Friend not aware that we should not have given him permission to answer all these Questions together because we are not in possession of the facts? But would he say how this accords with the speeches and statements made by himself, the Prime Minister and the Minister of Health at the time on this subject? Is it worth the candle to do this for 2s. 6d?

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Venereal Disease (Prescription Charges) (14 Apr 1969)

Mr Ken Lomas: asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will introduce amending legislation to the National Health Service Act, 1952 to remove the exemption from the payment of prescription charges from those persons suffering from venereal disease.

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Venereal Disease (Prescription Charges) (14 Apr 1969)

Mr Ken Lomas: Is my right hon. Friend aware that, while I recognise that the treatment of venereal disease is a social necessity, many of my constituents are asking—in fact, they have written to me—why people who contract venereal disease "through pleasure" should be exempt from payment, while persons who contract arthritis as a result of work should have to pay? This has made nonsense of the system of...

Orders of the Day — PARLIAMENT (No. 2) BILL: Loss of Voting Right by Non-Attendance (1 Apr 1969)

Mr Ken Lomas: Before my hon. Friend moves on to other points, which I am sure will be most important to the Committee, is he saying, in effect, that the result of the Bill may well be that non-voting peers would be opening bazaars and that voting peers would not be able to do so? Could he just enlarge a little on the problems there might be in relation to the three-day waiting period for unemployment...

Orders of the Day — PARLIAMENT (No. 2) BILL: Loss of Voting Right by Non-Attendance (1 Apr 1969)

Mr Ken Lomas: Is my hon. Friend saying that we should have half-time members of the other House on full-time pay and also that, under the Bill—I am very grateful for his lucid explanation of it—we should have double-time Members on half-pay? I am sure that, as a trade unionist, he would be very much against this. I wonder whether he could solve the problem.

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment and Productivity: Prices and Incomes (31 Mar 1969)

Mr Ken Lomas: Is my hon. Friend saying that, out of the 2,000 cases handled by his Department, 1,950 have complied with the criteria?

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment and Productivity: Commission on Industrial Relations (31 Mar 1969)

Mr Ken Lomas: asked the Secretary of State for Employment and Productivity how many appointments have been made to the Commission on Industrial Relations; and what its eventual membership will be.

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment and Productivity: Commission on Industrial Relations (31 Mar 1969)

Mr Ken Lomas: Can my right hon. Friend say how long these appointments are for, what are the salaries in each position, and whether she is satisfied that the numbers appointed are sufficient to do the job which the C.I.R. will ask them to undertake?

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment and Productivity: Commission on Industrial Relations (31 Mar 1969)

Mr Ken Lomas: asked the Secretary of State for Employment and Productivity what studies of industrial relations problems are currently being undertaken by the Commission on Industrial Relations; and what procedure agreements she has referred to the Commission.

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment and Productivity: Commission on Industrial Relations (31 Mar 1969)

Mr Ken Lomas: May I ask my right hon. Friend which type of industrial problems the initial references to the Commission are likely to involve, and whether she considers that it would be advisable to put the C.I.R. on a statutory basis as soon as possible?

Orders of the Day — Compulsory Control of Incomes (13 Feb 1969)

Mr Ken Lomas: I cannot understand this single, double or triple somersault which the Opposition seem to be performing. Are they saying that it is wrong that wages should rise and the cost of living should be controlled or that, if they were in power, they would reduce wage levels and allow prices to rise? Is it not a fact that, under this Government, although there is a norm under the prices and incomes...

Orders of the Day — Compulsory Control of Incomes (13 Feb 1969)

Mr Ken Lomas: Where?

Mr Ken Lomas: Where has it failed?

Mr Ken Lomas: Where?

Orders of the Day — Compulsory Control of Incomes (13 Feb 1969)

Mr Ken Lomas: How can my hon. Friend argue on the one hand that we have done so much wrong and, on the other, accept that wages have risen more than the cost of living and that the Government have kept prices down more than they have wages, and in so doing have recognised that trade unions not only have rights but responsibilities? Is my hon. Friend aware that there are 8 million pensioners in Britain who...

Orders of the Day — Compulsory Control of Incomes (13 Feb 1969)

Mr Ken Lomas: I am rather puzzled. Can my hon. Friend tell me any right that is taken away from the trade union movement in the document "In Place of Strife"? On the prices and incomes policy, does not he agree that there is a need to try to get away from a free-for-all society in which only the strong and the militants shall win and the weak and the poor shall go to the wall?

Orders of the Day — Compulsory Control of Incomes (13 Feb 1969)

Mr Ken Lomas: Mr. Lomas indicated dissent.
