Orders of the Day — Social Security Benefits Bill (21 Nov 1974)

Mr Ken Lomas: I am charmed by the hon. Lady's charisma. No doubt it helps her to win at elections. But what does she mean when she refers to the age of a child? What age is she talking about?

Orders of the Day — Social Security Benefits Bill (21 Nov 1974)

Mr Ken Lomas: What did the hon. Lady's party do about that?

Orders of the Day — Social Security Benefits Bill (21 Nov 1974)

Mr Ken Lomas: Very few.

Orders of the Day — Social Security Benefits Bill (21 Nov 1974)

Mr Ken Lomas: I appreciate the hon. Lady's point. There are between 2 and 3 per cent. of the population who are taking us for a ride. I accept that—

Orders of the Day — Social Security Benefits Bill (21 Nov 1974)

Mr Ken Lomas: Will the hon. Lady tell me how many civil servants would be required in order to try to curb, the 1, 2 or 2½per cent. who abuse the system?

Orders of the Day — Social Security Benefits Bill (21 Nov 1974)

Mr Ken Lomas: But 99·9 per cent. do not.

Orders of the Day — Social Security Benefits Bill (21 Nov 1974)

Mr Ken Lomas: Write a letter.

Orders of the Day — Road Traffic (Seat Belts) Bill (21 Nov 1974)

Mr Ken Lomas: I was hoping that the hon. and learned Member would give way. He has been going on for so long and many of us have been sitting here from six o'clock under the impression that the debate would start at seven o'clock. The hon. and learned Gentleman has now come into the Chamber and is trying to monopolise the debate, and it is about time he wrapped up.

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation: Capital Transfer Tax (12 Nov 1974)

Mr Ken Lomas: I have been in the House for 10 years and I learn something every time I come into the Chamber. The hon. Member for Ealing, Acton (Sir G. Young) argued in favour of subsidies to keep down the cost of living. What a wonderful argument to come from a Conservative. I should like to take him up on that argument, but I promised Mr. Deputy Speaker not to keep the House for more than 10 to 12 minutes.

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation: Capital Transfer Tax (12 Nov 1974)

Mr Ken Lomas: By implication the hon. Gentleman was saying that if subsidies were removed the price of a telephone call and of a rail journey from London to Ealing would be increased. I agree with the hon. Gentleman that the Chancellor could have introduced an incentive to save. That would have been a useful exercise. I have pleasure in congratulating my hon. Friends the Members for Bolton, West (Mrs....

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation: Capital Transfer Tax (12 Nov 1974)

Mr Ken Lomas: I hope that the leaders of the TUC, recognising that the Government in power will fulfil their side of the social contract in terms of social services and housing, will give their support. I would expect the support of the TUC and trade union leaders. I go along with what the hon. Gentleman may be implying, that those at the top end of the social or wage scale must be prepared to hang back so...

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation: Capital Transfer Tax (12 Nov 1974)

Mr Ken Lomas: Taking it on a basis of 54p or 55p, if one adds 8 per cent., it comes out at about 4p, which one multiplies by about three times, so that the answer is 12p extra per gallon.

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation: Capital Transfer Tax (12 Nov 1974)

Mr Ken Lomas: If it is 8½p per gallon, it depends how far one is going to travel on a gallon; it is as simple as that. It is an issue one can make a song and dance about, but I do not think that it is vital, because, as has been said, it will not affect public transport or derv in any way. I was glad to hear the Chancellor say that at some time in the new year we shall have a White Paper on defence cuts....

Clause 2: Social Security Amendment Bill (6 Nov 1974)

Mr Ken Lomas: I hope that it will be borne in mind by the Government Front Bench that it should not be taken for granted on this side of the House that all self-employed people are necessarily rich. I am not going to speak of Members of Parliament in this context, but I have in mind, for instance, vicars and people who run small corner shops. We have a responsibility as a Government to be fair, and we...

Orders of the Day — Debate on the Address (30 Oct 1974)

Mr Ken Lomas: Would my hon. Friend comment on the fact that it is not Socialist philosophy to build Offa's Dyke or Hadrian's Wall? The object of Socialism is to do away with the barriers that divide nations. We are one nation. Would not my hon. Friend agree that the oil that may accrue to Scotland belongs not only to Scotland but to the whole of Britain? Would he care to comment on that instead of trying...

Orders of the Day — Debate on the Address (30 Oct 1974)

Mr Ken Lomas: And Yorkshire.

Royal Marines (24 May 1974)

Mr Ken Lomas: I am grateful to the hon. Member for Haltemprice (Mr. Wall) for initiating this debate. Both of us must declare our interest. The hon. Gentleman is chairman of the all-party ex-Royal Marine Group in the House. I am its secretary. There are about 10 or 12 Members of the House of Commons who are ex-Royal Marines. There are four or five Members of the House of Lords who are ex-Royal Marines....

National Health Service Pay (23 May 1974)

Mr Ken Lomas: In the interests of brevity, I do not intend to take up the remarks made by the right hon. and learned Member for Hertfordshire, East (Sir D. Walker-Smith). I must first declare an interest in that I am sponsored by the National Union of Public Employees, which has over 450,000 members, 200,000 of whom are employed in the National Health Service. Many of them are employed as nurses or in the...

National Health Service Pay (23 May 1974)

Mr Ken Lomas: We recognise it for what it is worth. That is why I totally ignore it. Let us not go back to what the Conservatives did on the introduction of the National Health Service in the late 1940s. The health service today is not what it used to be. It is deteriorating fast. It does not attract the staff that are needed. Only a truly realistic recognition of the work being done by those who are...

Rate Support Grant (25 Mar 1974)

Mr Ken Lomas: Nonsense.
