Orders of the Day — National Insurance (Further Provisions) Bill (1 Jul 1966)

Mr Ken Lomas: We cannot measure human life, happiness and decency in terms of cost. I am not prepared to argue that the cost of an old person living decently must be measured against a particular item I am more concerned with people and that they should enjoy a decent standard of living and the full fruits of their labour rather than that they should have to eke out a miserable existence, which they would...

Orders of the Day — National Insurance (Further Provisions) Bill (1 Jul 1966)

Mr Ken Lomas: Mr. Lomas rose——

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Labour: Part-time Workers (20 Jun 1966)

Mr Ken Lomas: asked the Minister of Labour if he is aware of the growing practice on the part of provident clothing and supply companies, check traders, and other similar firms, of ending their present contract of employment with their part-time workers and treating these people as self-employed with the obvious intent of terminating their responsibilities under the National Insurance Act, the Redundancy...

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Labour: Part-time Workers (20 Jun 1966)

Mr Ken Lomas: While expressing my thanks for the investigations that have been made, may I ask whether my hon. Friend is aware that many of these firms which are indulging in this practice are escaping their liabilities under the Selective Employment Tax which will be coming into operation in October? Is she aware further that, surely, in the interests of the nation, of the employee and of the consumer, it...

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Tinned Foods (Date Stamping) (5 May 1966)

Mr Ken Lomas: Is my right hon. Friend aware that I am most grateful for that long and detailed reply, but that I still think that it is disappointing? I should be grateful if he would take note of the fact that housewives and consumers in general are entitled to this protection. Would he not look at the matter again and see what can be done?

Amendment of the Law (3 May 1966)

Mr Ken Lomas: I am most grateful for the opportunity once again to follow the hon. Member for Chelmsford (Mr. St. John-Stevas) in a debate in the House. I listened to his speech with great interest. I found it very much like the curate's egg—good in parts. There were many parts of it with which I agree entirely, but in other respects I felt that it was harking back to a day that I had hoped had long gone...

Amendment of the Law (3 May 1966)

Mr Ken Lomas: We have been in only for 18 months. If we start from a base figure and remember that we inherited a terrible mess, we realise that it is not possible to get into top gear immediately. But by the time the next election comes along in 1970 we shall find not only that we have obtained an increase of 3·8 per cent. in our production per year but have exceeded the 4 per cent. figure. It will move...

Amendment of the Law (3 May 1966)

Mr Ken Lomas: I can tell the hon. Member, and if I start with him perhaps I can persuade his party and the rest of the country. One can do this, as we have been doing it, when we go to our constituencies. We have a National Plan which has been accepted by the whole House. We are encouraging co-operation with industry and the trade union movement. We are holding conversations and consultations at the...

Amendment of the Law (3 May 1966)

Mr Ken Lomas: May I intervene? If a deficit of £800 million is not a mess, what is? The fact is that during the period that hon. Members opposite were in office production increased by only 2·3 per cent.

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Health: Drugs (2 May 1966)

Mr Ken Lomas: asked the Minister of Health if he will set up a committee to inquire into the profits of firms supplying drugs to the National Health Service.

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Health: Drugs (2 May 1966)

Mr Ken Lomas: Is my right hon. Friend aware of the most recent example of profiteering, inasmuch as Messrs. Pfizer were producing a drug identical to one produced by I.C.I. but selling it at three times the price. Is this being considered by the Committee, or would my right hon. Friend consider asking the First Secretary of State to refer this matter to the National Board for Prices and Incomes?

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Health: Clinics (Health Checks) (2 May 1966)

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Health: Clinics (Health Checks) (2 May 1966)

Mr Ken Lomas: Is not my hon. Friend aware of the experiment that was carried out in Rotherham where one out of every six of the population failed to pass the nine-part examination? Does he not consider that there is an urgent necessity here for an early-warning system of this kind to check the health of the community?

Mr Ken Lomas: Is my hon. and learned Friend aware that the total amount of revenue collected in tax on all musical instruments is only £1 million in a single year? Although this would be a small concession, it would be a valuable contribution to the musical education of children in our schools. Will my hon. and learned Friend look into it again?

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Dog Licences (Hounds) (26 Apr 1966)

Mr Ken Lomas: asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer why no licence is required for a hound bred for hunting until it is 12 months old.

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Dog Licences (Hounds) (26 Apr 1966)

Mr Ken Lomas: As something may have happened since 1878, I think that we might get round to changing that Measure. Would not my hon. and learned Friend agree that an element of social injustice is involved here, when the mongrel pup of an old-age pensioner is liable for a licence at six months but a hound bred for hunting—the unspeakable chasing the uneatable—can get away without the licence? Will he...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: School Places (Cost) (3 Mar 1966)

Mr Ken Lomas: asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what is his estimate of the cost of raising the school-leaving age on the assumption that local education authorities are allowed to base their comprehensive plans on an age of transfer other than 11-plus; and what is his policy towards local education authorities wishing to follow this course.
