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.

Oral Answers to Questions — Technology: Foundry Techniques (24 Jun 1968)

Mr Ken Lomas: asked the Minister of Technology if he will make a statement on the result of the study he has made into securing more advanced foundry techniques.

Oral Answers to Questions — Technology: Foundry Techniques (24 Jun 1968)

Mr Ken Lomas: In view of the importance of foundries to many of the industries in my constituency of Huddersfield, may I ask the Minister to ensure that this study is given the very highest priority? Can he say whether it will be published?

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Heat-treated Milk (12 Jun 1968)

Mr Ken Lomas: asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if, in view of the hardship caused to small shopkeepers, pensioners, holiday makers, single persons living on their own and other consumers by his refusal to impose a wholesale price for ultra heat-treated milk, he will now fix the price as he fixes the maximum retail price; and if he will make a statement.

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Heat-treated Milk (12 Jun 1968)

Mr Ken Lomas: Does the Minister appreciate that many of these small shopkeepers do not stock this type of milk that these people want mainly because the Ministry fixes the maximum retail price but does nothing about the wholesale price, and small shopkeepers cannot negotiate with the giant monopolies? The Minister should do something about it. What action will he take?

Orders of the Day — National Health Service (Charges) (30 May 1968)

Mr Ken Lomas: Would not the hon. Gentleman agree that mental illness and coronary thrombosis should also be exempted?

Orders of the Day — National Health Service (Charges) (30 May 1968)

Mr Ken Lomas: Would my hon. Fnend stop being an apologist for Tory policies? He should have some regard for our concept of a Health Service free for all at the time of need. May I inform him that 1 had intended tonight to abstain. In view of his comments and the speech of the Minister of Health, I intend to vote against the Government.

Orders of the Day — Prices and Incomes Bill (21 May 1968)

Mr Ken Lomas: The hon. Member for Bath (Sir E. Brown) made a typical Conservative speech, full of hot air and containing nothing of substance. Neither did it— this goes for all the speeches made by hon. Members opposite—put forward any credible alternative. Speeches by hon. Members opposite have shown only one theme—that the social services would be the first to suffer if they were ever returned as...

Orders of the Day — Prices and Incomes Bill (21 May 1968)

Mr Ken Lomas: If my hon. Friend will allow me to continue my speech and to develop what I wish to say, I shall deal with that point. When we have a situation such as we are faced with at the moment we need to use control, not only over the heights of the economy, but in the field of prices and incomes and also in stimulating industry by all kinds of assistance, using all the modern tech- niques of the...

Orders of the Day — Prices and Incomes Bill (21 May 1968)

Mr Ken Lomas: That is not what the Bill says. It says in effect that the claim of the lower-paid worker will be allowed to go through. That is the whole purpose of the Bill. If we do not have those Clauses how can we control the mavericks and the rogue elephants in our midst, be they in the C.B.I, or in the trade union movement? I have not yet heard any trade union speaker or anyone else tell me how the...

Orders of the Day — Prices and Incomes Bill (21 May 1968)

Mr Ken Lomas: I am not replying to that interruption made while my hon. Friend was sitting down, and that was entirely different.

Orders of the Day — Prices and Incomes Bill (21 May 1968)

Mr Ken Lomas: That has nothing to do with what I am saying. I reminded my hon. Friends that we had an argument in our own party and reached a decision by a ratio of five votes to one in favour of the Bill and the White Paper. As I see it, the choice before us is simple. Either we decide to cling to an outdated system, which I think is rotten and bad, with free bargaining and all the rest, or we try to...

Orders of the Day — Rising Prices (1 May 1968)

Mr Ken Lomas: The hon. Member has quoted the figures from October, 1964, to March, 1968. Perhaps he would bear in mind that, according to the Ministry of Labour Gazette, the figures that we accept, retail prices as a whole have increased by 13·6 per cent. and food prices by 13 per cent., but weekly basic wage rates have increased by no less than 18·4 per cent., and hourly rates by 23·4 per cent. Would...

Orders of the Day — Rising Prices (1 May 1968)

Mr Ken Lomas: Will the hon. Gentleman concede that the House and the nation will also recall that from 1951 to 1964 the party opposite did nothing about these people, and that by the measures we have introduced to improve their living standards we have done more than they ever contemplated?
