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

Mr Ken Lomas: The hon. Member for Portsmouth, Langstone (Mr. Ian Lloyd) covered a fairly wide area, but I fail to detect in what he has said anything that is directly related to the Motion that we are debating and which has been put forward as a Motion of censure by hon. and right hon. Gentlemen opposite. It is interesting to note that the great onslaught that we were expecting from the Conservative...

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

Mr Ken Lomas: I accept wholeheartedly the point that expenditure on the social services will rise under any Government and it did rise under the Conservative Administration. But I am saying that under our administration expenditure on the social services has risen at a far greater rate. Those services have been given to people who have been in more deserving cases, and we have sought out people whom those...

Oral Answers to Questions — Board of Trade: Tourist Trade (24 Apr 1968)

Mr Ken Lomas: Will the Minister indicate what action his Department is taking to increase the number of camping and caravan sites in this country? Is he, as a Yorkshireman, doing all he can to encourage tourists from abroad to go to Yorkshire?

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Student Grants (14 Mar 1968)

Mr Ken Lomas: Can the Minister do anything in the meantime to ensure that the parental contribution is paid, because, where it is not paid, it causes hardship?

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Immigrant School Population, Huddersfield (14 Mar 1968)

Mr Ken Lomas: asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he is aware that of the £26,000 made available to the Huddersfield local authority, towards the cost of immigrants in the borough, little is directly available to the education committee for use for the benefit of the 10 per cent. immigrant school population; and whether he will authorise an immediate grant to meet this need.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Immigrant School Population, Huddersfield (14 Mar 1968)

Mr Ken Lomas: Is my hon. Friend aware that those are not the facts as I know them in Huddersfield? Does he appreciate that they have a real problem there, and that, proportionately, we have a higher number of immigrant school children almost than any other place in the country? Will he consider sending someone from his Department to study this, and discuss it with the education authority?

Orders of the Day — Defence (Navy) Estimates 1968–69: Food Prices (11 Mar 1968)

Mr Ken Lomas: I am most grateful for the opportunity to raise on the Adjournment the question of rising food prices. This subject has been discussed and written about many times since the Labour Government came to power, and on almost every occasion the impression has been created that the Government were more interested in keeping wages down than in keeping the cost of living under control. A tremendous...

Orders of the Day — Defence (Navy) Estimates 1968–69: Food Prices (11 Mar 1968)

Mr Ken Lomas: I am just pointing out that this is the case made on food prices, by our opponents, and I am asking the Minister to comment. Again, what really matters is the kind of commodity the housewife buys, and the frequency with which she buys it. In the Grocer for 20th January, 216 price increases were shown. Of these, 30 were pasta products and a further 36 were toiletries and patent medicine....

Orders of the Day — Commonwealth Immigrants Bill (27 Feb 1968)

Mr Ken Lomas: A notable feature of the debate has been that, with one or two exceptions, it has been conducted in a calm and dispassionate manner. However, that is no reason why we should not speak our minds frankly and express the views which we sincerely hold. It is an hon. Member's responsibility to put not only his own views but those of his constituents and to express the problems of his constituency....

Orders of the Day — Commonwealth Immigrants Bill (27 Feb 1968)

Mr Ken Lomas: This has been borne in mind. The point I wish to make is that we expect this to increase. We are dealing with entry into primary schools. Some children were born of English-speaking parents; some were born of parents who cannot speak much English and attend classes which the local authority runs for them. We expect the intake to increase by at least 500 a year over the next six years, to a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Technology: Hearing Aid Batteries (Prices) (5 Feb 1968)

Mr Ken Lomas: asked the Minister of Technology if he has now decided to refer to the National Board for Prices and Incomes the recently announced increase in the price of Mallory mercury hearing aid batteries—RM 675 H2014;1·4 volts—from 11s. to 16s. 6d. for six; and if he will make a statement.

Oral Answers to Questions — Technology: Hearing Aid Batteries (Prices) (5 Feb 1968)

Mr Ken Lomas: I am most grateful to my right hon. Friend for that reply, but can he also explain why it has taken the Department so long to reach this decision? In view of this outrageous increase in these prices, what action is he taking to ensure that the old prices are still maintained till the Prices and Incomes Board has had an opportunity to consider this matter?

Business of the House (1 Feb 1968)

Mr Ken Lomas: Does my right hon. Friend not appreciate that, by allowing the House to reach a decision on the Sachsenhausen Report, the authority of the Select Committee and the P.C.A. will be undermined? Does he not also agree and confirm that the letter sent to the members of the Committee was not received until 9.30 last night, and, further, that the real answer to this would have been to get the...

Army Vehicle (Accident) (16 Jan 1968)

Mr Ken Lomas: After a day of high drama, which will be remembered in the House for a long time, I am grateful for the opportunity of being able to raise the case of a former constituent of mine, Allen Clive Oldroyd. In a sense, I am glad that the House was recalled a day earlier than was expected, otherwise I might not have had the opportunity of being able to raise this issue this week. This is really a...

Army Vehicle (Accident) (16 Jan 1968)

Mr Ken Lomas: Will my hon. Friend give way?

Army Vehicle (Accident) (16 Jan 1968)

Mr Ken Lomas: I am most grateful for the kind offer which my hon. Friend has made, which, I am sure, will be taken up by the solicitors. The only point I wished to make is that the solicitors, in the interests of Mr. and Mrs. Oldroyd, were trying to find some way to avoid the possibility of them losing £500. They had no intention of using the board of inquiry evidence or findings in a judicial sense. They...

Orders of the Day — House of Commons Proceedings (Sound Broadcasting Experiment) (11 Dec 1967)

Mr Ken Lomas: In view of the hon. Member's remarks about public demand or the lack of it, may I ask whether he is not aware that less than 5 per cent. of the Members of the House are present to debate whether their voices should not should not go on the air? What conclusion does he draw from that? Does he not realise that the majority of Members, as is obvious by their absence from the Chamber, are not in...

Orders of the Day — Health Services and Public Health Bill (7 Dec 1967)

Mr Ken Lomas: It always worries me when praise is poured on Ministers by hon. Members opposite and even more when I have to agree with much of what they say. I agree with the hon. Member for Farnham (Mr. Maurice Macmillan) that the need for a Specialist Committee is self-evident. This Service has existed for 20 years and is so complex, involving so many different spheres of action and Departments, that...

Orders of the Day — Health Services and Public Health Bill (7 Dec 1967)

Mr Ken Lomas: That is exactly what I was going to say. The hon. and learned Member will find that the legislation for pay-beds is permissive. The Act says that the Minister "may", not "shall". This was the way that Nye Bevan managed to bring the two sides together——

Orders of the Day — Health Services and Public Health Bill (7 Dec 1967)

Mr Ken Lomas: What was said 20 years ago does not necessarily bind our present actions. If it did, there would be a tremendous number of contradictions on both sides of the House. Let us wake up to the facts of life as they are. Aneurin Bevan had to make this concession to get the Health Service off the ground. It was right then, but is it right now, 20 years on? Is it right when over 97 per cent. of the...
