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

Mr Ken Lomas: When the Health Service was first introduced it was not known what this private sector would be like. If one looks at the figures in the Annual Report of the Ministry of Health for the last two years one sees that in 1965 there were 5,616 pay-beds in our hospitals, with an average daily occupancy rate of 2,890. In other words, for 51 per cent. of the time they were occupied by paying...

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

Mr Ken Lomas: I am glad that the Minister has decided to reverse this idea of beds being designated and consultants and others being able to take on for treatment whoever they wished. There is still a case to be made for the abolition of the idea that people with money can jump the queue and buy good health. This has never been the philosophy of the Labour Party and I hope that it never will be. We should...

Liberties of the Subject (1 Dec 1967)

Mr Ken Lomas: How can the hon. Gentleman possibly reconcile his talk about the erosion of the liberty of the subject to this Government's actions? The Government are setting up these specialist committees while previous Governments did nothing of the kind.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Reflecting Number Plates (15 Nov 1967)

Mr Ken Lomas: asked the Minister of Transport when she expects to lay the regulations to allow the use of reflecting number plates in accordance with the Road Transport Lighting Act, 1967.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Reflecting Number Plates (15 Nov 1967)

Mr Ken Lomas: Does the Minister recall the firm promise which he made to this House on 12th June that these regulations would be laid before the winter months? Would he make every effort to see that this is done before Christmas, and that the trade is given notice of the intended date so that the public will be able to buy these plates in order to save lives over the Christmas period?

Oral Answers to Questions — Hospitals: Pay Beds (Review) (6 Nov 1967)

Mr Ken Lomas: Is my right hon. Friend aware that he is to be congratulated on his statement, especially since we have a waiting list of about 500,000 people for hospital beds? Will he look again to see whether he could not reduce the number of pay beds still further?

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Hooliganism (Football Matches) (26 Oct 1967)

Mr Ken Lomas: asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will prosecute persons guilty of hooliganism at football matches under the Public Order Act of 1936, and thus allow magistrates to inflict heavier penalties on the offenders than at present.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Hooliganism (Football Matches) (26 Oct 1967)

Mr Ken Lomas: May I assure my hon. Friend that this kind of problem does not apply to Huddersfield Town Football Club? Is my hon. Friend also aware that thousands of people have their recreation at football matches ruined by hooliganism? Is he aware that I can see no reason why the Home Secretary should not instruct the police to prosecute under the 1936 Act, because by doing so stricter penalties could be...

Orders of the Day — Clause 1. — (Application of Principal Act to Reflecting Material.) (12 Jun 1967)

Mr Ken Lomas: It is a pity that the hon. Member for Twickenham (Mr. Gresham Cooke) was not here on Second Reading when those two points were specifically dealt with. On the question of expense, I would refer him to Section 7 of the Road Research Laboratory Report (No. 44), published in January, for the third time: Cost of reflectorising. Ordinary registration plates are sold by the manufacturers to garages...

Orders of the Day — Clause 1. — (Application of Principal Act to Reflecting Material.) (12 Jun 1967)

Mr Ken Lomas: But it would not be in dollars. The hon. Member specifically mentioned that it would be necessary to import from America, but I am told that they could be obtained from Germany. Those two points are adequately dealt with. The object of Clause 1 is to make it clear that a reflectorised number plate, or any kind of reflective material, is not so much a form of light but a form of warning of...

Orders of the Day — Clause 2. — (Power to Require or Authorise Rear Lights, etc., of Varying Colours.) (12 Jun 1967)

Mr Ken Lomas: I was concerned about whether the numbers could he taken off very easily. The Road Research Laboratory test, which was done over two years on vehicles which were subjected to 80,000 miles of use on the road, showed that with normal wear and tear this did not happen. I am told that provided the numbers are put on properly they would not lift. Equally, I made the point that I should be in...

Orders of the Day — Clause 3. — (Control of Certain Illuminated Signalling Devices.) (12 Jun 1967)

Mr Ken Lomas: The speed with which the Joint Parliamentary Secretary and his Department have handled the Bill almost makes them guilty of exceeding the speed limit. I say that because an early-day Motion on the subject was signed by a large number of hon. Members in January and February. my ten-minute rule Bill was given a First Reading on 19th April, this Measure received its Second Reading on 31st May,...

Orders of the Day — Road Transport Lighting Bill (31 May 1967)

Mr Ken Lomas: I should, first, like to express my very sincere thanks to my hon. Friend the Parliamentary Secretary for his extremely kind words about the part which I played in helping to bring the Bill forward. In return, may I express my personal thanks both to him and to his Department for the help and guidance which I have received over the last few weeks. I couple with those thanks the name of the...

Reflective Number Plates (19 Apr 1967)

Mr Ken Lomas: I beg to move, That leave be given to bring in a Bill to allow the use of reflective number plates on all road vehicles as an aid to road safety. In 1966, 8,000 people were killed on the roads of this country, a further 100,000 were seriously injured and almost 300,000 were slightly injured. A total of 468,000 vehicles was involved in those accidents, and of the people killed or seriously...

Oral Answers to Questions — Roads: Road Safety Advisory Council (19 Apr 1967)

Mr Ken Lomas: Will my right hon. Friend give a firm assurance that she will consult the Road Safety Advisory Council when she is formulating her future policy?

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Vehicles (Reflective Number Plates) (19 Apr 1967)

Mr Ken Lomas: asked the Minister of Transport (1) if she will give an assurance that she will introduce, within this or in the next Session of Parliament, legislation permitting the use of reflective number plates as an aid to road safety;

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Vehicles (Reflective Number Plates) (19 Apr 1967)

Mr Ken Lomas: Is my hon. Friend aware that, by the end of this year, about 40 million vehicles in the world will be equipped with these reflector safety plates, which is sufficient proof in itself? May I draw my right hon. Friend's attention to the Ten Minute Rule Bill which I introduced this morning, and hope that it will be given every consideration?

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (17 Apr 1967)

Mr Ken Lomas: I am sure that the whole of the Committee agrees that the maiden speech of the hon. Member for Glasgow, Pollok (Mr. Wright) was not only very well delivered, extremely fluent and very well argued, but contained just the right amount of humour and sincerity, on which all maiden speeches should be modelled. If the hon. Member went into controversial issues towards the end of his speech, I am,...

Business of the House (6 Apr 1967)

Mr Ken Lomas: May I draw my right hon. Friend's attention to Motion No. 460 standing in the names of myself and 54 other hon. Members? [That this House urges Her Majesty's Government to introduce in this session permissive legislation allowing the use of reflective number plates as an aid to road safety.] In view of the coming holiday season, when tragedies once more will occur on the roads, will my...

Orders of the Day — Pay Increases (Crown Bedding Company) (5 Apr 1967)

Mr Ken Lomas: I have been provoked into intervening briefly in this debate by the remarks of the hon. Member for Ormskirk (Sir D. Glover), who somehow manages to reduce many of the most important issues we debate in this House to comedy and farce. Opponents of this Order from the other side of the House have gone the whole range of farce, comedy and tragedy and, above all, of sheer, downright hypocrisy....
